I haven't heard anything to indicate he's coming out. Now, surely that doesn't mean he won't.

Where does Santonio Holmes, who declared after the Fiesta Bowl win, go in the draft? Where do you rate him in relation to other WRs in this class?

I foresee him going to Detroit in the first round :-b :-D ;-)

This Wright guy has him going to Denver at #22 overall (first WR selected), and it seems like a good fit to me. There are certainly other teams that could use WRs, but rookie WRs have historically been risky propositions, so not many teams can afford to risk getting zero production out of their first-rounder. Denver, being the #2 seed in the AFC and having two first round picks, can afford to take the risk to fill a big hole.

Santonio Holmes, I think either the Eagles or Denver.

Santonio will go to either Philly or Denver. That would be my best educated guess but again, who really knows. He might have a great combine and improve his draft status.

Detroit anyone?

I'm no draft expert, but a lot of things bother me about this mock.

With such glaring needs on defense, would St. Louis really take a TE with the #11 pick?

Assuming Michael Bennett leaves, Minnesota still has Onterrio Smith, Mewelde Moore, Ciatrick Fason, and even Moe Williams at RB. Why in the world would they draft another RB, especially with such glaring needs at defense? (e.g. Fred Smoot was a major bust)

Doesn't New England need help in the secondary, not at linebacker?

Again, while a top pass-catching tight end would be nice, the Cincinnati Bengals need major help on the defensive side of the ball.

As of right now it doesn't sound like it

Len Pasquarelli of ESPN.com is reporting that Texas junior QB Vince Young is leaning towards dodging the NFL Draft and returning to school for his senior campaign. Young and his family feel that there might not be enough teams in the top 5-10 overall picks who are ready to invest in a top signal caller at this point and hat he would ever be able to pass Matt Leinart on draft boards. Young has not completely decided against going into the '06 draft, and could revisit the notion, sources said.
