Not much news these days so just killing some time.
- St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford - QB, Oklahoma
I jumped on the bandwagon here. As all QB's do around draft time they get way over hyped by ESPN and so the Rams will go for Bradford thinking they need a franchise QB to turn it around. And they do.
- Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh - DT, Nebraska
Why wouldn't they? They need a tackle to protect Stafford but Ndamukong looks like he has the potential to be disruptive right away. Fastest way to a championship is with an excellent D. The city rejoices.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy - DT, Oklahoma
BPA meets need, no more reason needed.
- Washington Redskins: Russell Okung - OT, Oklahoma State
New QB in town, new coach in town. new start. Okung is a beast and should improve the line immediately.
- Kansas City Chiefs: Trent Williams - OT, Oklahoma
Kansas hasn't had a run game in a while, Cassel has no time to pass, and the head coach is offensive minded. Good offenses need good linemen, value meets need here.
- Seattle Seahens: Eric Berry - S, Tennessee
Seattle wants a linemen but they feel at 6 they will be reaching and maybe the best player in the draft is sitting in their lap. AZ fans know very well how game changing a dominate safety can be and so does Seattle.
- Cleveland Brown: Trade to Buffalo Bills for their first and a third. Jimmy Clausen - QB, Notre Dame
What? Holgrem doesn't like Clausen and the Bills, desperate for a QB pull the trigger to make sure they get their man.
- Oakland Raiders: Bruce Campbell - OT, Maryland
The old man loves athletic freaks and Campbell is just that. Need fits value.
- Cleveland Brown: Dez Bryant - WR, Oklahoma St.
Cleveland could go use a FS or LB but go with Bryant because they have no true #1 and need to get some weapons on the team.
- Jacksonville Jaguars: Trade to Giants for their first and a third. Rolando McClain - ILB, Alabama
Jacksonville wants down to save some cash (and get an extra pick for Tebow) and the Giants
want/need McClain bad. McClain is easily the best ILB in the draft.
- Denver Broncos (Via previous trade): Dan Williams - NT, Tennessee
Best NT in the draft meets a big Bronco need.
- Miami Dolphins: Jason Paul Pierre - DE, USF
Tough debate, Haden or JPP? Haden would give them an excellent secondary but JPP could be a real terror on the line. The go with JPP because of potential.
- San Francisco 49's: Bryan Bulaga - OT, Iowa
Niner fans rejoice, finally a good OT! Bulaga fits a big need and could really help the team.
- Seattle Seahens: Anthony Davis - OT, Rutgers
Seattle now has an OT and a potentially elite safety. Davis have been called lazy and his refusal to do a few drills at the combine dropped his stock in a lot of drafts but Carrol is a motivator and thinks he can get the most out of Davis
- Jacksonville Jaguars: Earl Thomas - S, Texas
Jacksonville secretly holding out for JPP decides not to go for a DE like Morgan and grab the second best safety in the draft. Hits a position of need.
- Tennessee Titans: Derrick Morgan - DE, Georgie Tech
Vince Young any one? I thought he was a for sure bust, proved us wrong. Tennessee once had a very good defense but losing Hansworth really exposed their lackluster pash rush. Morgan is considered maybe the best DE in the draft and the Titans grab him up.
- San Francisco 49's: Joe Haden - CB, Florida
They need a third down back, and many people think they should grab Spiller but Singletary gets his much needed OT and starts thinking of a top 5 defense next year. Allows an aging and overpaid Clements to move to FS and really shore up that secondary.
- Pittsburgh Steelers: Mike Iupati - OG, Idaho
Pitt debates heavily if they should pick up Weatherspoon here as Farrior is 25 years old but their their line needs an infusion of youth and help in the run game. Iupati is a big man and should help their smash mouth run game.
- Atlanta Falcons: Carlos Dunlap - DE, Florida
Dunlap is a workout warrior and seems to have high potential, he lands on a Falcon team that needs a DE, Dunlap fits the bill.
- Houston Texans: Kyle Wilson - CB, Boise State
Looking to replace Dunta Robinson they pick up Wilson, second best CB in the draft. I would have traded them down but I couldn't think who would make this trade.
- Cincinnati Bengals: CJ Spiller, RB Clemson
Cincinnati rejoices. They want Dez Bryant to compliment Ocho Cinco, and they want a TE but they don't want to take one in the first round. But they get lucky with CJ Spiller. He adds depth behind Cedric Benson and also will help in the passing game and return game. He gives the Bengals a much needed weapon.
- New England Patriots: Brandon Graham - DE, Michigan
The Pats had a bad pass rush last year and need help. They go with Graham because of just that.
- Green Bay Packers: Taylor Mays - S, USC
Green Bay needs an OT and a CB but with no one with value at 23 they hit another need with Taylor Mays. He is a freak athlete and who can line up in the box or play coverage.
- Philadelphia Eagles: Sean Weatherspoon - OLB, Missouri
Many "experts" believe if Weatherspoon adds on some weight he would make an excellent ILB. Philly jumps on him.
- Baltimore Ravens: Jermaine Gresham - TE, Oklahoma
Some Ravens fans would probably hate this, but it makes sense. A pass catching TE, an excellent RB and Boldin would really help Flacco. I think they do this because they know the window on their D is closing fast.
- Arizona Cardinals: Sergio Kindle - OLB, Texas
Arizona goes with BPA on the defense and takes Kindle. Kindle is a bit of a project pick, but at 6'3 250 he could easily be moved around the LB line and start making contributions immediately. Though the Cards would have preferred an ILB or NT, Kindle adds depth into a now deep OLB core.
- Dallas Cowboys: Maurkice Pouncey - OG, Florida
Dallas really wanted Lutapi or a an OT but with neither on the board, they go with the next best guard.
- San Diego Chargers: Terrance Cody - NT, Alabama
San Diego reaches a bit here, but they need an NT badly. With the LB's they have, a two down NT like Cody won't be too much of an issue.
- New York Jets: Jared Odrick - DE, PSU
The Jets need an DE and the last first round DE available is Odrick. He played DT in college but he is seen as a 3-4 DE in the pros. He is a powerful and big and should fight for a spot on day one.
- Minnesota Vikings: Devin McCourty - CB, Rutgers
The Purple Men reach here a bit, but after McCourty's ridiculous forty and an impressive day during drills the Vikings reach for a big need. Their secondary has had some injury issues so they look to shore it up.
- Indianapolis Colts: Charles Brown - OT, USC
Colts always seem to find late round lineman and develop them but this time they feel Charles Brown fits their pass oriented scheme to well to pass up on. The Colts struggled with protection at times and now the Colts get even scarier.
- New Orleans Saints: Brian Price - DT, UCLA
New Orleans offense is scary, but their D wasn't. They had some great moments but needed to become consistent. They would prefer a DE here but with no one left they get the next need and land an excellent 4-3 DT. He should help anchor their line for year to come.
