With the first pick of the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Oakland Raiders select
Russell has the arm to make all the throws at the NFL level. He really came on starting in his junior season to show the poise needed for the position. Won't confuse anybody with Michael Vick. But has the athleticism to make big plays as a scrambler. The bottom line Russell has all the tools to be an elite NFL QB.
Reason for pick-With the Raiders you could go in so many directions. But they are lacking a true potential franchise QB. So Jamarcus Russell was a no brainer with the first pick.
02-10-2007, 08:47 AM
With the second pick of the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Detroit Lions select:
Joe Thomas OT/Wisconsin
HT: 6-7 WT:310
Thomas who on some websited is listed as 6-8 is a premier OL. He is a very good run blocker who does a good job of finishing his blocks, but he is an even better blindside pass protector. His quick feet, good balance, and near flawless technique make him an ideal left tackle prospect. Thomas has all of the intangibles you could want from a player on your team. He is an extremely hard worker who is constantly trying to improve his game. He is an intelligent player who has been an honor student everywhere he has been and he is a person of impeccable character.
Reason for pick-The Lions must find a way to protect their QB after giving up 63 sacks last season. Mike Martz believes he can win with just about any quarterback, and he has the track record to prove it. Rather than wait for Brady Quinn to develop, it looks like the Lions are going with either Jon Kitna or another free agent as their QB. They should have gotten there franchise QB a long time ago instead of wasting all their #1 picks on WR's (you can't fix stupid).
With the third pick in the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Cleveland Browns select:
Brady Quinn QB/Notre Dame
Quinn is great prospect at the quarterback position. He was a four year starter at Notre Dame where he found success despite one of the nation's toughest schedules. He has played in some of the biggest games and was a contender for college football's highest honors. He has all the tools to be a star in the NFL.
Reason for pick- Charlie Frye and Derek Anderson did look good at times, but Clevelad needs to take bigger steps in solving their quarterback problems that have plagued them for years. Quinn should excite the fans and may buy Romeo Crennel a couple more years as head coach.
02-10-2007, 07:31 PM
With the 4th pick in the 2007 SA Mock draft the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select:
Calvin Johnson WR Georgia Tech
Johnson is a big, physically imposing target. He uses his size well to shield defenders away from the ball. He also uses it to out jump defenders on deep passes and jump balls. He is also very strong and that helps him get off of press coverage and as a downfield blocker. Johnson shows great ability to turn and twist his body in the air to make tough grabs. He adjusts well to get underneath passes as well and has shown the ability to make tough grabs from many different angles and in traffic because he positions himself so well. He also has shown great ability along the sidelines and in the back of the end zone. He is an excellent fade target.
While QB may be a more pressing need, there is no one worth using this high of a pick on and calvin johnson is to good of a prospect to let slip away. Johnson is strong and fast similar to TO but has always been a good student and stand up citizen. He is the best WR prospect since Fitzy and with Galloway getting up in years and clayton doing nothing thus far, passing on Johnson would be stupid.
Defensive end is also a possiblity with rice likely out but i like Johnson going to Tampa Bay this year.
02-10-2007, 10:29 PM
With the 5th pick in the 2007 SA Mock draft the Arizona Cardinals select:
Jamaal Anderson - DE - Arkansas
Considering the fact that Joe Thomas will most likely be gone, the Cardinals should be giddy with excitement if Anderson falls to them at this pick. Jamaal Anderson hasn't gotten a lot of national attention yet but he is a premier prospect who is coming off a junior season in which he totaled 19.5 tackles for a loss and 13.5 sacks. Many scouts liken him to a Richard Seymour type of player. Anderson has a lot of raw natural talent that will take some coaching to harness and perfect, but his upside potential is too much to pass up at this point. He has more than enough speed to chase down a RB or drop into coverage in the flat if the Cards decide to use him in that fashion. His large frame and long arms should suit him well to get the upper hand on the opposing lineman trying to block him and slow down his speed rushing capabilities.
Arizona needs help in several key areas, and DL is one of them considering their depth at this position is nothing special, and they've had some injury problems with highly regarded Bertrand Berry. Researching the Cards shows us that they aren't that far off from being a playoff caliber team but they need to sure up the DL, as well as address the OL, and DB positions as well. New head coach Ken Whisenhunt would love to grab a player like Joe Thomas here and the cards may try to move up to get him if they feel he'll be gone before they pick at #5. The other option here is to take a Levi Brown, but he is a reach at this juncture of the draft and taking him with the 5th pick would be overpaying potential. They could trade down a few spots to get more value and nab Levi with 9th or 10th pick.
02-10-2007, 10:38 PM
WelcomeBack pm'd me his picks so i could post them for him
Washington Redskins select Alan Branch DT Michigan
Has outstanding size and a huge frame...Extremely strong and powerful...Terrific athlete for his size...Able to take on multiple blockers...Versatile with experience at numerous positions in different schemes...Stout at the point and plays the run very well...Delivers a jolting initial punch...Sheds blockers well...Able to penetrate, collapse the pocket and make plays in the backfield...Still has some major upside.
reason: the redskins need to upgrade their dline and branch will help with that right away
02-11-2007, 01:56 AM
7. Minnesota Vikings - WR Dwayne Jarret - USC
They are in deperate need of a big playmaking Randy Moss type WR. They would much rather have a chance at Calvin Johnson, but he won't fall this far. What they really though is a DT or DE, but I don't think they could pass up on Jarrett since they need a WR or two as well. If Anderson falls this far, they would take him in a hearbeat.
Jarrett is 6'5" 210 LBS and is able to jump up and take the ball away at it's highest point. He caught at least one pass in every game of his USC career. In only 26 games as a Trojan he took down 29 TD catches. Nuff said.
02-11-2007, 02:03 AM
8. houston texans- Adrian Peterson, 6'2, 218, RB, Oklahoma
info: From a physical standpoint, it’s hard to pick a better specimen than Adrian Peterson. He’s big and strong, but still has room for more growth. He couples that size with excellent speed, and very good athleticism. As a freshman, he proved he could carry the load, and even though he was dinged up as a sophomore, was still the focal point of the offense. Peterson will run it between the tackles, and lowers his shoulder upon contact. He will break arm tackles, and his speed allows him to bounce outside and break off long runs.
There really are only two questions with Peterson: his durability and his receiving ability. In his three seasons, he has had two seasons where he has either missed or been slowed by injuries for a substantial amount of time. With his long frame, Peterson runs upright and opens his body up for some unnecessary punishment at times. He also hasn’t proven much in the passing game. This is more because he has not been utilized as a pass catcher, but he still needs to show his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. Of minor concern is his running style.
reason: well this past year they used running back by committee and it didn't work out that great...with peterson they finally have a real chance to have a franchise every down back. which will benefit carr or whoever they have throwing the ball...and peterson doesn't need to best of lines to be productive he's strong and fast enough to just make his own holes or get on the outside by himself
02-11-2007, 07:57 AM
With the 9th pick in the 2007 SA Mock draft the Miami Dolphins select:
Gaines Adams DE Clemson
HT: 6-5 WT: 260
An outstanding athlete.....Extremely quick and agile with very good speed. Has a tremendous first step and a great burst to close. Has very long arms and uses his hands well. Has the frame to get bigger and develop physically. Looks fluid when dropping into coverage. A terror in opponents backfields and has a knack of getting to the QB. Productive and disruptive, has the ability to play OLB in a 3-4 system.
This was a tough decision based on team needs. The Dolphins need help on both sides of the ball, this was a toss up between Adams, Okoye and Levi Brown. It came down to their bread and butter.....The defense, who somehow rise up every year. The defense is getting old and in big need of replacements whereas the OL well lets just say.....One player will not fix that, they need to address that in FA. I'm also thinking they might trade down for more picks.
With the 10th pick in the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Atlanta Falcons select:
Ted Ginn Jr. WR Ohio State
HT: 5-11 WT: 175
Ted Ginn Jr. is second to none when it comes to speed... He's an electrifying runner in the open feild and is a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball. He's a great return man and a was former high school quarterback... very versatile and can be a threat a variety of ways. He needs to put on some weight he is actually lighter than 175... he says he loses 10-15 pounds during the season.
Atlanta's biggest weakness and subject of much criticism from the media has been their wide receivers... or lack thereof. Ginn will certainly improve their talent level and big play capabilities on the outside. The combination of Vick and Ginn is pretty exciting... he should create a buzz in Hotlanta and help their quarterback improve. A receiver like Ginn definitley improves quarterback ratings.
Falcon fans get ready for a lot of wide receiver screens... otherwise known as the "Ginn again" made famous by Jim Tressel.
02-11-2007, 07:19 PM
With the 11th pick in the 2007 SA draft the san fransico 49ers select:
Leon Hall CB Michigan
BIO-Leon Hall had a tremendous career at Michigan and comes into the draft as one of the top corner backs available. Hall is a phisical and agressive cornerback with great coverage skills. Hall may be the type of CB that wwould thrive in a coverage zone scheme.
My reason- Personally i think hall is overrated but there is a need for CB on the 49er defense, this team is well on its way to success with Alex Smith coming around, they drafted Vernon Davis who is a huge target for smith and Gore has been tearing it up, while a WR would be the final piece to the offense, Bowe or rice would be a major reach with this pick so i say go defense and CB is one of there biggest needs. Amobi Okoye is a possiblity but he not a typical 3-4 tackle which is what the 49ers are trying to become.
02-11-2007, 08:39 PM
With the 9th pick in the 2007 SA Mock draft the Buffalo Bills select:
Darrelle Revis CB Pittsburgh
HT: 6'0" LBS: 200 40-Time: 4.45
Revis is an excellent cover man. He has excellent quickness, and shows the ability to easily mirror receivers throughout their route, and has the speed to keep up with them down the field. Revis has greating jumping ablitiy and can pick it off easily
With Nate Clements not being tagged will most likey not return for next year and the bills have no other really good cornerback. Plus the Bills have no other CB over 6 feet tall other than Clements.
02-11-2007, 09:05 PM
St. Louis Rams select Amobi Okoye DT 6'1 317 Louisville
Extremely strong...A solid athlete with good measurables...Stout against the run and is able to take on multiple blockers...Gets a good push and will collapse the pocket...Is able to shed blocks and clog up the middle...Shows great instincts for the game and is still developing...Smart player who is mature beyond his years and wants to improve...Quick and will penetrate and rush the passer...Still has a ton of potential and he could really be physically molded by a pro strength coach.
reason: the rams need to upgrade that defensive line, and Okoye has shown he can play he's only 19 so he still has a lot of upside to him. so he's to good to pass up at this spot for the rams
02-11-2007, 09:46 PM
14. Carolina Panthers - Laron Landry, S, L.S.U.
Reason - Picking here kind of sucks for the Panthers, they have a need at MLB, with Dan Morgan always hurt, but there really aren't any standout MLB's in this draft IMO. Rumors have Keary Colbert and Me-Shawn leaving this off-season, so we could see a WR here as well. They are pretty weak at S as well, so Landry should shore up the position for years to come.
Bio - A 6'2", 202 lbs, hard hitting safety who reminds me of Roy Williams. He has a little more of a nose for the ball than Williams. He only had 12 picks in 4 years so he may need to work on his hands. Average speed hurts him, and his penchant for trying for the big play may mean he misses a few tackles.
02-12-2007, 01:06 AM
With the 15th pick in the 2007 NFL draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select:
Anthony Spencer - DE - Purdue. Height: 6-3 , Weight: 261
Spencer is the perfect fit for a defense like the Steelers run, his size and speed are similar to that current Pro Bowler Joey Porter. Anthony has all the qualities and potential to be a perfect 3-4 defensive Linebacker. Clearly his breakout year came in 2006 when he finished with 93 tackles and 10.5 sacks. He was overshadowed by Ray Edwards and Rob Ninkovich before but finally was able to see his draft value rise in 2006 and is being projected as the top 34 LB assuming he can make the transition to that position in a successful manner. He's big enough to play outside and rush the QB, as well as stop the run, and athletic enough to drop into coverage.
Reasons: This was a TOUGH pick mainly because the 15th pick is alittle early to grab Spencer when we could trade down and get him at around pick 20 atleast more than likely. Still though, the play of Haggans has declined the last 2 years overall, and our LB needs some hungry youth to be infused into the group which should serve to make everyone better. I thought of taking Levi Brown here as well but when you look at the needs the Steelers have, LB is a key one. Spencer will need some polishing but he could fit very well into our scheme. It's a catch 22 because we need help at OL as well and Levi Brown is available but the Steelers feel good about our situation at Tackle with Colon, Marvel Smith, Max Starks and Trai Essex so guard is more of a need than Tackle at this point. All in all I think Spencer can be the versatile type of player we need to make the transition to LB for us no matter what scheme we run.
The other option here at LB/DE was Jarvis Moss who is ranked higher on many mock's, but he really only played in 2005 and 2006 and his stats were good but not great, plus Spencer has more starts and experience.
02-12-2007, 12:48 PM
With the 16th pick in the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Green Bay Packers select
HT: 5-10 WT: 222
Is a strong inside runner that runs through arm tackles and can absorb hard hits. He also keeps his legs churning to fight for yardage. Lynch, shows the quickness, agility and burst to bounce runs outside. Once at full speed, can reach the corner. Lacks the initial breakaway speed and explosiveness. He also needs to work on his blocking and route running since he didn't do much of both in college.
Reason for the pick-I wanted to take a WR to give Brett Favre another bigtime target to make one last run. I could have went with Dwayne Bowe but I felt the 16th spot was alittle early for Bowe. Now if Ginn would have been here. Then he would have been the pick. I just felt Marshawn Lynch was the best pick from a value stand point and Ahman Green is getting up there in age. So the Pack do need a young bigtime RB. One final note on Lynch. He was charged with sexual assualt so that could hurt his draft stock.
02-12-2007, 01:38 PM
this pick is what welcomeback sent me
Jacksonville Jaguars select Reggie Nelson S Florida
An outstanding natural athlete...Good speed and quickness with terrific range...A ballhawk and impact playmaker in the secondary...Is very instinctive...Aggressive, physical and a big hitter who plays much bigger than he is...Is more than willing to come up and help support the run...Versatile and may be able to play multiple positions...Very productive and has a knack for being around the action...Upside.
reason: the jags current safety is gonna be a free agent, and with reggie nelson being one of the top safeties of this class it makes sense to take him here
02-12-2007, 05:21 PM
With the 18th pick the Cinncinatti Scumbags select:
Brandon Merriweather S Miami (FL)
Hes a Hard-hitting defensive back who won a starting role at strong safety in spring 2005...Team leader who started most of the 2004 season at free safety...In three seasons has never missed a game, seeing action in 40 games and making 19 starts...Has career totals of 202 tackles (123 solo), 15 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, 17 passes defensed and six interceptions...Has a compact frame but can lay a hard hit on opposing receivers...His athletic ability and cover skills helped him develop into a top safety...Has exceptional closing speed....Plays in the slot in the nickel defense...
Personally i think hes better than griffin and will up his stock at the combine, cincys defense is pathetic all the way around and Merriweather fits the mold of your average cincinatti thug, he has some character issues and a few run ins with the law....its almost made to be. And since the bengals wont be able to draft former hurricane thug willie williams until next year (or year after) who was arrested 11 times recently....merriweather will have to do, i think he will fit in nicely with:
Matthias Askew - DT (2006) resisting arrest.
Chris Henry - WR (2005) possession of marijuana. (2006) unlawful transaction with a minor (three counts), speeding, operating a vehicle under the influence, felony possession of a concealed firearm.
Eric Steinbach - G (2006) Boating under the influence.
Frostee Rucker - DE (2006) Spousal battery.
Odell Thurman - LB (2006) Driving while intoxicated.
A.J. Nicholson - LB (2006) Burglary, grand theft.
Reggie McNeal - WR (2006) resisting arrest.
Deltha O'Neal - CB (2006) Driving while intoxicated.
Johnathan Joseph - DB (2007) Possession of marijuana.
With the 19th pick in the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Tennessee Titans select:
Paul Pusluszny LB Penn State
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 235
Paul started at Penn State as a true freshman and would leave "Linebacker U's" career leader in tackles. I'm sure he has one of the largest trophey rooms in PSU history, but his play on the feild speaks for itself. He has everything you look for in a linebacker and a work ethic that will seldomly be matched.
"I hear the thunder when he's out there,'' Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden, the North team's head coach, said of Posluszny. "I turn around and it's No. 31, knocking somebody sideways in the hole. All I know is that this guy will hit you hard and hit you often."
Reason- The Titans could go a lot of different ways with this pick... WR, OL, DL, LB, and DB. There defense needs some help and I think you can plug Puz into any defense with his experience.
02-13-2007, 01:15 PM
With the 20th pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, the New York Football Giants select:
AARON ROSS - CB - Texas
Ross should be able to step in and make an immediate impact for the Giants, atleast in their Nickle or Dime situations; if not right away in their base defense. He's got the ideal size and speed today's CB needs to hang with their opponent. His skills in the return game should also help make an immediate impact for the Giants.
In an ideal world Revis or Marshall Lynch would be the perfect fit for the Giants. Lynch mainly because of the loss of Tiki Barber to retirement leaves a void that must be filled. Revis would be the ideal pick here if he's available however Ross is also considered one of the better CB's in the nation but scouts question him because of his lack of starting experience since he was burried in the depth chart behind the likes of Michael Huff, Cedric Griffin, Nathan Vasher, Michael Griffin and Tarell Brown at Texas until last year when he came through in a big way and won the Thorpe award. He'll take some coaching to harness all the raw talent but he's got enough already to start making plays for the Giants and within time can be something really special.
02-13-2007, 03:22 PM
21. Denver Bronco's - Marcus Thomas DT, 6'2" 290 lbs, Florida
Reason - The Bronco's are actually IMO, in the position to take the best available player here, but what they really need is help in the secondary, Lynch and Bailey aren't getting any younger, and the tragic loss of Darrent Williams hurt them too. Seeing as all of the good DB's are taken at this point, I could really see them trading down, in this situation. Since we can't trade, I figure the next biggest need for them is on the D line. They have nothing but former Browns players for goods sake. Thomas can play outside or inside, b/c of his size and quickness, and he will dominate many O-lineman. Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia just to show how dominant he is:
While he played for Gators during the 2006 football season, his dominant play clearly showed as he accumulated 26 tackles and 4 sacks in only 5 games. Prior to the game against LSU when he was on suspension, the Vegas Line was -1 in favor of LSU. After he was activated for the game, the Vegas Line was +3 in favor of Florida.
Bio - Well I think the quote above speaks for itself!
02-13-2007, 04:06 PM
With the 22nd pick of the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Dallas Cowgirls select:
Levi Brown OT Penn State
HT: 6-5 WT: 328
Brown is a former defensive tackle who came over to the offensive side of the ball and has flourished. He possesses great strength and knows how to throw around his large frame. Defensively they are pretty solid but offensively, specifically along the offensive line, the Cowgirls leave a lot to be desired. Flozell Adams is getting older and the RT spot can still be upgraded. Levi Brown of Penn State had a solid career for the Nittany Lions, and is regarded as the second best OT prospect in the draft. The 6-5, 328-pound Brown is a solid blocker, specifically in the run game, where he helped pave the way for HB Tony Hunt as a senior. Not overly quick, Brown is athletic for a man his size and could fit in as a LT at the next level.
I was going to pick either Landry or Nelson but they are gone, the Cowgirls could use help along the DL but they need help on the offensive line a whole lot more.
02-13-2007, 04:35 PM
With the 23rd pick in the 2007 SA Mock draft the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS select:
SIDNEY RICE WR - South Carolina
Height: 6-4 | Weight: 202 | 40-Time: 4.45
Rice has great size and leaping ability. He can flat out take over games at times. He just needs to be coached up right and prove he wants to be a dominant WR. Plus Rice is very fast.
KC has lacked a true #1 wide receiver for the last decade or so. Sidney Rice is still raw and inexperienced but he's loaded with potential and even though he will likely fall to the latter part of round one due to his lack of top speed he could very well end up being a steal for someone because he is a phenomenal talent.
02-13-2007, 07:34 PM
With the 24th pick in the 2007 SA Mock Draft the New England Patriots select
Patrick Willis-LB/Ole Miss
Patrick Willis is an all around LB. He is very good against run as well as the pass. He is consistently around the ball. Is not an explosive blitzer but gets pressure through only strength, effort and hustle. Is fluid dropping into zone coverage. He also shows great instincts to read plays. Never stops chasing the ball.
Reason for the pick-The Pats LB core is getting up there. So there is a need to inject youth into the Pats LB core. Patrick Willis does that and with the 24th pick in the first it makes sense.
With the 25th pick in the 2007 SA Mock Draft the New York Jets select:
Adam Carriker DE Nebraska
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 295
Has outstanding size and a big frame...Has tremendous strength and is extremely powerful...Holds his ground and is exceptional against the run...Has a motor that never stops...Solid tackler...Instinctive and pursues well...Is technically sound and uses his hands well...Is versatile and could play a number of different roles and positions...Very productive...Tough guy and a hard worker with great intangibles.
Reason- Not sure, They could go in a lot of different directions. To early for most of the players that fit their needs. Carricker can play outside and inside.
02-15-2007, 09:45 AM
With the 26th selection in the 2007 NFL draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select:
Michael Griffin - Safety - Texas
Height: 6-0 - Weight: 205
The eagles would do well to choose a player like Griffin if he falls to them here. He's got the ideal size and speed todays Safeties need to play and be effective. He's a BIG hitter and a never end motor, just like Brian Dawkins. Griffin is also a standout special teamer who is adept at blocking kicks.
The eagles could go OLB, DB, or WR here really but I chose Griffin do to all his intangibles, natural ability, and multi faceted abilities in the the ST dept as well as safety. He can step in right away and make an impact. Any of the other positions could be a viable option for them but overall the team is pretty set and just needs some tweaking here and there depending on what happens with McNabb in the future.
02-15-2007, 06:26 PM
27. New Orleans Saints - Daymeion Hughes, CB, California
Reason - Well, they have all the help they need on offense, we might see an OL drafted here, or they will trade down. I honestly think they need help in their secondary. Before last week, I couldn't name one player on their D, the secondary is especially horrid. Fred Thomas is supposed to be their standout CB, which IMO, is worse than relying on Chad Scott and Dewayne Washington. Hughes is the 3rd highest rated CB in the draft by quite a few people, so I think he is a bargain here. Sean Payton will coach him up well.
Bio - Hughes started all 12 games in 2005 and recorded 62 total tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, one sack, five interceptions (one returned 41-yards for a touchdown), 12 pass breakups, and one blocked kick. Hughes has potential as a sub-package cover corner in the NFL, who also can contribute on special teams. He is an athletic defender with great experience and production playing in the Pac-10. He is having his best season as a senior in 2006, when he displayed improved technique, recognition skills and ball skills. 7 int for 2006 as of 10/31/06.
02-16-2007, 06:22 PM
With the 28th pick in the 2007 SA mock draft the New England Patriots select
Bowe is tall and well built for a WR. Shows the strength and balance to keep his feet after hard hits. He can break tackles. Bowe also fights to the whistle and runs very good routes. He is also a willing a good blocker for a WR. He will win jump balls and will dominate in the red zone. Is willing and will catch passes over the middle. Only negatives drops the easy catch at times and doesn't have blazing speed. But can get deep but isn't a game breaker.
Reason for the pick-Last year the Pats picked speedster Chad Jackson in the 2nd round. Now they get their possession receiver and have a another target for Tom Brady. Even though the Pats WR's did suprise at times this year but at this point in the draft the Pats just can't pass up a chance to ungrade their WR core.
02-16-2007, 07:21 PM
With the 29th pick of the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Baltimore Ratbirds select:
Michael Bush RB Louisville
Height: 6'3 Weight : 250 lbs.
Big, rugged, tough, athletic future feature back in the mold of an Eddie George or a Lawrence Dickerson. Has some outstanding lateral moves and agility for a guy of his dimensions. Runs downhill hard. Will run people over, powerful runner who moves the pile on contact. Has really concentrated on getting more YAC, and will carry tacklers. Can be deadly in the halfback option pass area, as he is a former top-drawer HS quarterback. Good hands. Improving blocker. Has rushed for 2,380 yards and 36 touchdowns, averaging 5.7 yards per carry... ranks seventh in school history in rushing yards and second in touchdowns... has appeared in 35 games with 15 starts... has recorded nine 100-yard games and one 200-yard game.
It looks like the Ratbirds will be cutting ties with J. Lewis. M. Anderson is to old and they let Taylor get away last season. The backfield is more of a priority then even their QB situation right now. Even though Bush broke his leg in the first game last year @ Louisville, he should be fully recovered. He should impress at the combines. This RB is to good to pass up.

With the 30th pick the San diego cahrgers seclect:
Robert Meachem WR Tennessee
6' 3 " 210
He set a Tennessee record with 1265 yards and added 11 touchdowns. A third-team All-American, Meachem led the SEC and was third nationally with 105.4 yards per game. NFL scouts like his size (6-3, 210 pounds) and speed (4.45 40-yard dash). Meachem can use that combination to consistently shake free from cornerbacks and he will be unfazed when, whoever is guarding him at the next level tries to get physical with him inside five yards of the line of scrimmage. A unique athlete, Meachem is able to find a way to get open with his leaping ability even when cornerbacks manage to stick with him down the field.
Reason: San diegos WR suck...nufced, but seriously this guy is underrated and while LT is a beast in all aspects of offense, gates is very inconsistant and cant always be the first option. WR is a big need here and this is a real good talent imo

Chicago Bears select Zach Miller TE Arizona St.
Miller has been a force since his true freshman season. He was named the Pac 10 freshman of the year after hauling in 56 passes for 552 yards and six touchdowns in 2004. In just 10 games as a sophomore, he had 38 catches for 476 yards and four TD’s. Miller was a consensus All America as a junior. He finished the season with 50 receptions for 484 yards and four touchdowns.
Zach Miller is an excellent receiving tight end. He should be able to make an immediate impact as a receiver in the NFL. He has very good size, but has above average athleticism and hands as well. Miller has good quickness and knows how to get open, and will haul in any pass that is near him. He is very tough, and will be a force in the red zone.
reason: if the bears are gonna stick with rex, they need a big tight end that can catch, rex's receivers are alright when he had to throw downfield, but never anyone really reliable to get the short catches..

With the 32nd Pick the Indianapolis Colts choose Jon Beason linebacker Miami
The Colts have allowed linebackers to walk during free agency, and that could happen again with Cato June. Beason would be a near-perfect fit for the Super Bowl champs and a great value pick if he slides to No. 32.
