Skins don't need an OT with Jansen and Samuels...

I am a little bit surprised about the Ravens selecting an OL man. I do think they need a WR.

Also, I don't understand Ronnie Brown being the 3rd RB taken. He is the concensus #1 RB in the draft, and had a tremendous combine. Also, why would the Vikings take him? Don't they have enough RBs? I thought they were going to try to improve their Defense, because I see that you have them taking a WR with their 18th pick..

Man, I hope the draft doesn't this way, but then again, anything is possible. If Rodgers and Smith don't go in the first 3 picks than, I will agree in great part to some of these predictions.

The other borderline one is Minny taking another RB for obvious reasons.


Jansen is playing on a recontructed Achilles and hasn't played in a regular season game in 2 years. While Samuel's is probably the most overpaid/overhyped player in the NFL.

Barron won't be picked by the Redskin's, but if they did I wouldn't consider it a waste. Depth in the trenches is not a luxury in the NFL, it's a necessity. You saw what can happen to a line when they lose their best player... the Redskin's were a sieve last season.

If you're a team like the Redskins, you cannot draft based upon an injury that *might* happen, only a team like the Patriots can do that. You need to upgrade your talent at CB, or any offensive position that's not HB or OT, to even have a chance of competing in the upcoming season(s). OL don't rotate, so depth is not as important there.

Samuels is likely overpaid, but I've yet to hear this "hype" you're talking about. Maybe he has not lived up to his full draft position potential, but he's definitely in the upper half of LT's in the league.

Obviously Jansen's reconstructed achilles is a concern, but if they really wanted depth at OT in case he goes down again, they'll be able to get it in the mid-rounds.

Heads will roll if the Vikings select a RB at #7 and a slow WR at #18. If they do go offense with one of the picks, it's going to be a deep-threat WR. Burleson and Clayton wouldn't complement each other, being they are the same player. If the two top WR's are off the board at #7, they will go Williamson or defense with Merriman.

The biggest problem I see on this is the fact that you have Dallas taking Williamson with their first pick and Aaron Rodgers with pick number 20... Why would they do it that way? There is every reason to believe that Rodgers would not slip to 20, and every reason to believe that Williamson will slip that far... Why not swap those two picks?

I wrestled with the Vikings first pick. Merriman was my 2nd choice, but Brown was too much to pass up there. Clayton is not slow. I guess you've never seen him play. I haven't seen his combine numbers, but he's very fast on the field. There's NO WAY Williamson falls to #20. Rogers won't either. The point is, this is how the players SHOULD go off the board, not how they will, because they won't. I'll grant you one or two picks could be tweaked, most of them having been mentioned.
