Anyone who tells you they can predict what will happen is lying," said one NFC personnel director. "The Bengals don't even know what they are doing with the top pick."

The latest rumor making its way through the league is that Cincinnati and Houston will swap picks in the first round, which means the Texans would get the first overall pick and the Bengals would get the third pick.

Houston would then select Michigan State receiver Charles Rogers, a move that would anger the Lions, who have the second pick. They want Rogers so Joey Harrington has his big-play receiver. It also helps that Rogers is from a school just down the road.

The Texans want Rogers to pair him with Jabar Gaffney and quarterback David Carr to give them the passing game they want to develop under offensive coordinator Chris Palmer. If they can't move up to get Rogers, it is believed the Texans might take Miami receiver Andre Johnson.

Browns coach Butch Davis has already publicly stated that defensive tackle Gerard Warren, the team's first-round pick in 2001, has to become more of a force. That's all well and good, but Davis has to become more of a force with Warren. Browns players were not happy that Warren got what appeared to be preferential treatment from Davis last year, almost being coddled by the coach. Warren missed a practice last year, after being unable to get a flight back to Cleveland, and he still played the next week. His attitude, according to some Browns players, left a lot to be desired. Maybe Davis could have used his Zig Ziglar motivational tactics on Warren to help him play better. Davis is a big follower of Ziglar, and has had him speak to the team on occasions. Players privately laugh about those motivational talks and one player actually told Ziglar to leave the locker room before one game, although in much more descriptive language.

AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have Harrington and was really hoping Rogers would go to Detroit.

Oh well there are about 5 impact WRs in the draft. I could settle for one of them too.

I just posted in another thread that there are soooo many rumors out there right now. Nobody will ever truly know what's going to happen, until it actually happens. I'll be glued to the set watching.

I like this move for the Bengals and the Texans, but really feel bad for the Lions IF this would happen.

But as you say, you just don't know what will happen until it happens, so there really isn't much point in thinking of what could happen, let's just wait.

I've started to read in more than one place that Andre Johnson has moved ahead of Charlie Rogers on many teams' draft wish lists
