1. Oakland - JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU
Has the overall talent package that Al Davis loves.
2. Detroit - Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
Kitna is not the answer.
3. Cleveland - Alan Branch, DT, Michigan
The Browns need some beef on their Dline.
4. Tampa Bay - Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech
Arguably the best player in the draft.
5. Arizona - Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin
From a Cards perspective, the best player in the draft.
6. Washington - Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas
Ridiculous pass rush potential.
7. Minnesota - Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson
The team needs more of a threat off the edge.
8. Houston - Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma
Would not be around this far if it weren’t for durability concerns.
9. Miami - LaRon Landry, S, LSU
Could play either safety spot, and could develop into a team leader.
10. Atlanta - Reggie Nelson, S, Florida
A bit high for both safeties, but both are big time playmakers.
11. San Francisco - Darrelle Revis, CB, Pitt
The offense has a little talent, now it’s time to address the defensive side of the ball.
12. Buffalo - Levi Brown, OT, Penn St.
Even if Losman is not the answer, the offensive line must be upgraded.
13. St. Louis - Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville
The front 7 must be addressed, and Okoye could be dominant in a couple years.
14. Carolina - Patrick Willis, LB, Ole Miss
With or without Morgan, some talent at linebacker is needed.
15. Pittsburgh - Quentin Moses, DE/OLB, Georgia
-Moses stock has slid a bit with concerns about him playing on the line, but in a 3-4, he could flourish.
16. Green Bay - Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC
The Pack lacks a go to receiver.
17. Jacksonville - Paul Posluszny, LB, Penn St.
Del Rio will love his attitude.
18. Cincinnati - Quinn Pitcock, DT, Ohio St.
Upgrading the Dline has to be the first order of business.
19. Tennessee - Ted Ginn, WR, Ohio St.
Could form as exciting a QB/WR duo as there is in the league.
20. NY Giants - Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal
Brandon Jacobs may be given a shot as the feature back, but it would be hard to pass on a talent like Lynch at this point.
21. Denver - Victor Abiamiri, DE, Notre Dame
A boost off the edge is needed.
22. Dallas - Justin Blalock, OL, Texas
Could help out on the right side of the line immediately.
23. Kansas City - Robert Meachem, WR, Tennessee
The offense needs a playmaker at receiver.
24. New England (from Sea) - Leon Hall, CB, Michigan
NE hopes they get just a portion of what they landed with the last Michigan corner they drafted.
25. NY Jets - Aaron Ross, CB, Texas
Ross improved his stock quite a bit this year, showing very good ball skills.
26. Philadelphia - Lawrence Timmons, LB, Florida St.
Has a special ability to fly to the football.
27. New Orleans - Daymeion Hughes, CB, Cal
Possibly the best ball skills of any corner in the draft.
28. New England - Buster Davis, LB, Florida St.
Height is a concern, but can really clog running lanes and find the football.
29. Baltimore - Jarvis Moss, DE, Florida
Could step in and provide a boost if Adalius Thomas leaves.
30. San Diego - Sidney Rice, WR, South Carolina
Gives the Bolts a massive pair of WR’s with Vincent Jackson.
31. Indianapolis - Earl Everett, LB, Florida
Has the speed to thrive in Dungy’s defense.
32. Chicago - Zach Miller, TE, Arizona St.
Would be a great security blanket for Rex Grossman.
