I've seen worse, but this list really isn't very good. The two Michigan players are way too high. The two Texas players are way too low. Benson *might* drop out of the top 10, but there's NO WAY Johnson does. The Raiders will draft defense or RB, not WR. What do they need with ANOTHER young WR with Porter, Curry, and Gabriel already on board? Marcus Spears will not be the #1 DE taken. Clayton is a real reach at #12. Kiwanuka has repeatedly said he is returning to BC. Other than that, it's okay. Like I said, there are a few glaring mistakes, but it could be worse.

Dang Leinart for doing too good this year...he's turning into one of those "can't miss" guys. How many people actually think he'll turn into a super NFL QB like an Elway, Manning, or some other deserving #1 overall picked QB (aka not Tim Couch)?

I just don't think we need a QB...it will NOT solve all of our problems. I think blocking is just as important as the QB who's throwing the ball. Who's going to block for him? Who's going to make sure the other team doesn't score 30 points in the first half and make it impossible for even the great Leinart to bring them back?

I guess the Niners have plenty of cap room...why not trade down and fill multiple holes at the same time? There's little chance they will compete in the near future, so why not load up on talent like the Cowboys did in the 90s? Find a couple guys on both side of the ball that you can get for the top pick and take them. Develop the team for the future and make a winner from the ground up.

Pretty weak draft...

Chicago is not passing on a WR after trading Booker.
Cadillac is not the best back on the board.
I have a hard time seeing Marlin Jackson in the top 10.
If I am not mistaken, "Kiwi" is headed back to college, and he definitely would not be the #4 DE off the board.
That's a stretch for McNeill.
Benson falls way too far.

But the worst thing of all is seeing Derrick Johnson at 18. He will have a tough time falling out of the top 7 in the draft, even with a poor bowl performance.

Where is Ahmad Brooks?

Chicago will take Edwards if there. Absolutely agree Cadillac isn't the #1 back. In fact he's #3 behind Benson, Brown. And I don't see Benson or Brown going late although 1 of the 3 will probably fall since most teams have a RB right now. Johnson at 18 is ridiculous. He'll be top 10. The Niners need to trade #1 and move down a few slots to gain more picks. The least of their problems is Rattay as starting QB for '05. That said, I doubt they will move.

One question that I have, among many others, is why would the Titans pick a WR when they already have Mason, Bennett had a breakout year, and Tyrone Calico should be back from injury next year. A lot of these picks don't make much sense.

I think this one loses a lot of credibility looking seeing Derrick Johnson at #18. I really quit nit-picking it after I saw that.

No way. I can't see him being any later than 5. I can't see teams passing on him just to fill another hole. He could be one of the best players in the draft.

Maybe whoever drew up this list for Draft Insiders is a Michigan fan, and still bitter about the Rose Bowl. Haha.

I think the Bears need help in both the O-line and receiver corps, and it wouldn't break my heart to see them pick somebody to protect their QB and open up some more holes for TJones. I've heard Braylon Edwards is great but have read he sometimes will drop the easy pass. Hmm, a highly touted receiver from Michigan who drops passes, where have I heard that before?
