San Diego would be thrilled if Clayton were on the board here.

Has Clayton's stock been flying up or something? That line makes me doubt this mock. But I will read on.

Well I'm happy to see they finally learned the 49ers won't take a wide receiver with the first pick...but Merriman fell a little far. And how on earth did Thomas Davis fall out of the first round?

I had some similar thoughts. My heart would start racing if Heath Miller was still on the board at the beginning of round 2. I've seen mocks with Roddy White taken by the Chargers and he's out of the first round.

Speaking of SD in this mock...
Pool has a nose for the ball and would upgrade the Chargers' mediocre run defense, for sure.

you can make many criticisms against the Chargers but not really against the run defense... I would hardly call 3rd of 32 mediocre... Maybe he meant pass defense...

but Edwards is faster and has a better character grade


Since when does MW have character issues that would push Braylon over him?


Carnell Williams has the size to take the pounding and the speed to score on any carry.


Maybe I've been reading the wrong websites, but I got the impression he didn't have that breakaway speed. He was more shifty. I'm not saying he's slow, but He doesn't have Portis type speed to take it he distance any time, does he? I could be wrong here or nitpicking.

Smith could sit behind Tim Rattay in '05 and learn without undo pressure and avoid taking a beating


This contradicts what the coach said a couple days ago about if they take a QB, they want him to start right away. This was interpreted to mean that they were leaning towards Rogers who was in a more pro style type offense than Smith who isn't used to backpedaling because they were in a shotgun formation. The coach could be smokescreening, I suppose.

I think Merriman is a top 10 pick. Carlos Rogers may go to KC since their coaches were all over themselves with him and they have been going after evry CB in f/a that they can and haven't landed anyone. Thomas Davis is dropping like a lead balloon. Most "mock experts" not named Mel said he really hurt himself with the gain in weight and loss of speed when he was tested. He retested the other day and lost the weight and regained the speed, but I'm hearing he gets to lost in traffic, doesn't fight through plays to make the tackle, but likes to run around the play to attempt the tackle (a HUGE no-no in the NFL). He doesn't sound very quick or physical. I can agree seeing him fall out of the 1st round. Then again, all it takes is one team to love him.

in all these mocks we see the dolpins taking running backs. i think this team needs a qb more than anyone in the league. why arent the dolphins rumored to be looking at QB's?

The thought is since they gave up a second round pick for Feely they feel he has the ability to start. My guess.......they take a RB this year, finish in or near last place again, and then realize they need another QB next year. Just a guess though, maybe Feely will be the man.

That is a little better. I was a bit surprised by the Clayton comment as well. I'd be surprised if he wasnt there at the Chargers pick.
