Nice draft but I can't see how we wouldn't take a DB somewhere in rnds 2-4.

Agreed, not overly sure why we'd get Darryl Tapp and not get a DB somewhere in there. Other than that it is pretty nice.

Yea i like that draft, but if we take Winston, I'd like to see either a CB or FS in round 3. Also, Byrd available in round 4? i thought he was projected late 1, early 2.

Add me to those asking about our DB's... otherwise it is a nice draft

i like this mock, but the only thing i would change would be to get a guard like Will Allen or somebody solid in the late round. We need to get depth at the offensive line.

I could probably live with this. I like the first 3 rounds (I really like Tapp). I would like to see a CB somewhere in there and I agree with picking up Will Allen late.

Love this draft from a purely talent standpoint. Great value in each round. I don't get picking Gradowski in 6 though. Why another QB? Must be CC's curse. And no DB's? But, we can't fill every hole this year, and I could EASILY live that draft. That's a straight A draft!

I agree with no DBs but considering that they had us taking in a DT in RD 2 a month or so ago, they have improved.

Rd 1

PICK TEAM PLAYER POS SCHOOL
1 (1) Texans Reggie Bush* RB USC
GM Charley Casserly says he is open for trade business, but it is unlikely that any team will offer the booty required to get this valuable pick. So, that will leave the Texans to select the most versatile offensive threat in the draft and team him with Domanick Davis.

2 (2) Saints D'Brickashaw Ferguson T Va.
The Saints have plenty of options. The most likely would be to trade the pick to a team (Jets and Titans are the most likely) looking to snare Southern Cal quarterback Matt Leinart. If GM Mickey Loomis doesn't make a deal, he will not take NC State DE Mario Williams because he already has two solid pass rushers in Will Smith and Charles Grant. The Saints could, however, solidify an offensive line that has lost center LeCharles Bentley and guard Kendyl Jacox this offseason. New Orleans could pair Ferguson with last year's first-rounder, RT Jamaal Brown, to protect their investment in Drew Brees.

3 (3) Titans Matt Leinart QB USC
If Leinart somehow falls to No. 3, don't blink because the Titans' draft card with his name on it already will be at the podium of Radio City Music Hall. There is a rumor that the Titans like Vince Young. Don't believe it. It's just a smokescreen.

4 (4) Jets Mario Williams* DE NC State
Williams has the size to play the end in new coach Eric Mangini's 3-4 scheme. Like Belichick, expect Mangini to stockpile ends with the versatility to dominate as a pass rusher and stuff the run.

5 (5) Packers Haloti Ngata* DT Oregon
If the Packers can add Ngata to go along with ends Aaron Kampman and Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila and new defensive tackle Ryan Pickett, the team would have the beginnings of a formidable front. Ngata is extremely quick and will create havoc inside.

6 (6) 49ers A.J. Hawk OLB Ohio St.
The Niners need to fill the hole left by free-agent defectors Julian Peterson and Andre Carter. Hawk is intense, can rush the passer and has the speed to make plays sideline to sideline. He would be an immediate starter.

7 (7) Raiders Vince Young* QB Texas
Everyone in the organization likes OT Winston Justice -- except owner/GM Al Davis. Davis wants Young, and Davis always gets his way. New quarterback Aaron Brooks is signed to a two-year deal, which would give Young time to develop.

8 (8) Bills Brodrick Bunkley DT Florida St.
New defensive coordinator Perry Fewell trained under Lovie Smith in St. Louis and Chicago. Fewell is installing the Tampa-2 defense and needs a Warren Sapp-type player for his 4-3 front. Bunkley is quick and athletic and can collapse the pocket.

9 (9) Lions Michael Huff S Texas
The Lions need a safety, and Huff is a versatile player who is physical against the run and can cover a lot of ground in deep middle of the secondary.

10 (10) Cardinals Jay Cutler QB Vandy
Maryland TE Vernon Davis would be tough to pass up, but our sources say coach Dennis Green is looking for a blocker, not a vertical threat. QB Kurt Warner soon turns 35 and hasn't been healthy enough to play a full season since 2001. Backup Josh McCown left via free agency, and Green needs a strong arm to get the ball to his playmaking wide receivers. Cutler isn't technically sound and isn't the most accurate passer, but he has a big arm and a gunslinger mentality.

11 (11) Rams Vernon Davis* TE Maryland
The Rams, unlike the Cardinals, definitely are looking for a two-way tight end with the size and strength to be an in-line blocker and the speed and receiving skills to create matchup problems in the middle of the field. Davis also is the best pure pass catcher in this draft -- better than any wide receiver.

12 (12) Browns Manny Lawson OLB NC State
Every NFL team using a 3-4 defensive scheme projects Lawson as a standup outside linebacker, a la Lawrence Taylor. Lawson has outstanding size and speed and can rush the passer; he had 17 sacks the past two seasons. Although Lawson played end in college, he also can drop into coverage. A rare athlete, Lawson is flying up draft boards and could be a key to the Browns' defensive success.

13 (13) Ravens Winston Justice* T USC
LT Jonathan Ogden is entering his 11th season. Justice has great size and is very athletic. The Ravens could play him elsewhere in '06 and then plug him at left tackle thereafter.

14 (14) Eagles Chad Jackson* WR Florida
WR Reggie Brown, a second-round pick last year, played well down the stretch but lacks Jackson's big-play ability.

15 (15) Broncos Mathias Kiwanuka DE Boston Coll.
(from Atlanta) The Broncos' failings in the AFC Championship Game came from their inability to pressure the quarterback. Despite their collection of former Browns along the defensive line, the Broncos lack a dominant pass rusher. Kiwanuka would contribute right away as a wave rusher and eventually displace Courtney Brown or Kenard Lang.

16 (16) Dolphins Jimmy Williams CB Va. Tech
Williams is no workout warrior, but he is big and physical. Coach Nick Saban lacks a shutdown cornerback and would love to add Williams' attitude to his improving defense.

17 (17) Vikings DeMeco Ryans OLB Alabama
The Vikings signed OLB Ben Leber from the Chargers to play the strong side and need a versatile weakside linebacker to complement him. Ryans is strong against the run, can play in coverage and rush the passer.

18 (18) Cowboys Kamerion Wimbley OLB Florida St.
When Bill Parcells coached the Giants, he drafted LB Carl Banks a year after taking Lawrence Taylor. Parcells could repeat the exercise by drafting Wimbley a year after Demarcus Ware. Wimbley is moving up many teams' draft boards, and his speed and versatility would create opportunities for Ware.

19 (19) Chargers Santonio Holmes* WR Ohio St.
Keenan McCardell, 36, is the team’s best wide receiver, and Eric Parker is a distant second. Holmes has speed to burn and plenty of big-play ability. He would add a dimension to an already loaded offense. Holmes also is a dangerous return man.

20 (20) Chiefs Tye Hill CB Clemson
Most scouts consider Hill to be the best bump-and-run cornerback in the draft. He has good speed and change-of-direction skills and will make plays on the ball.

21 (21) Patriots Chad Greenway OLB Iowa
The Patriots need an outside linebacker with speed to rush off the edge and the toughness to make plays against the run. Greenway didn't perform particularly well in pre-draft workouts, but he always is around the ball. He never stops hustling, a key trait for coach Bill Belichick.

22 (22) Broncos DeAngelo Williams RB Memphis
(from Washington) People tend to forget that Terrell Davis was 5-10. Williams has a similar build and running style and recently ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds. Minnesota's Laurence Maroney, who could be considered here, struggled in his pre-draft workout. By drafting Williams, coach Mike Shanahan no longer would be forced to use Ron Dayne as his feature back.

23 (23) Buccaneers Ernie Sims* OLB Florida St.
Bucs coaches love Sims' speed and playmaking ability and see him as the next Derrick Brooks. Defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin's scheme doesn't require much size at middle linebacker, so Sims could start there in '06 and slide to the weak side when Brooks, who is entering his 12th season, moves on.

24 (24) Bengals Nick Mangold C Ohio St.
Rich Braham, 35, is nearing the end of his career. Mangold could take over quickly as the line-caller to help protect QB Carson Palmer as he returns from a knee injury.

25 (25) Giants Bobby Carpenter OLB Ohio St.
The Giants were decimated by injuries at linebacker in '05, exposing their lack of depth. Carpenter is the son of former Giants RB Rob Carpenter and is a smart, instinctive player. He is fully recovered from November’s broken leg. He is tough and loves football -- coach Tom Coughlin's kind of guy.

26 (26) Bears Antonio Cromartie* CB Florida St.
With CB Charles Tillman expected to move to safety and CB Jerry Azumah announcing his retirement, the Bears need help. Cromartie is healthy after missing the '05 season with a knee injury, and he has great hands and excellent speed.

27 (27) Panthers Laurence Maroney* RB Minnesota
RB DeShaun Foster re-signed but has a long history of injuries, so Maroney would bring needed depth.

28 (28) Jaguars Thomas Howard OLB UTEP
Howard is smart, fast and physical, and he would fill a need because Jacksonville lost Akin Ayodele in free agency.

29 (29) Jets Marcus McNeill T Auburn
(from Denver) The Jets' offensive line situation is in disarray, and it won't matter who is playing quarterback if they don't fix it. Current starters Adrian Jones and Marko Cavka are undersized and have combined for 16 NFL starts. McNeill is a mountain of a man, and left tackle is his natural position.

30 (30) Colts LenDale White* RB USC
White has had a disastrous winter and spring and could fall deep into the second round if the Colts don't take him here. But White is a big, physical runner who also is a viable receiver. Coach Tony Dungy and GM Bill Polian have a good track record of getting solid production from guys with questionable character.

31 (31) Seahawks Johnathan Joseph* CB S. Carolina
The Seahawks' one glaring hole is at cornerback opposite Marcus Trufant. Joseph has decent size and blazing speed and makes plays on the ball. He also returns punts and kicks.

32 (32) Steelers Rodrique Wright DT Texas
Wright could play end or nose tackle in the Steelers’ 3-4 scheme. The team certainly could use an infusion of youth along its defensive line.

MorKnolle
04-12-2006, 09:24 PM
#5 is too high for Haloti and no way Rodrique Wright sneaks into the 1st round.

HoustonFrog

Round 2

1 (33) Texans Eric Winston T Miami (FL)
The Texans must upgrade their offensive line to keep David Carr upright.

2 (34) Saints Ashton Youboty* CB Ohio St.
The Saints are in immediate need of a nickel back who could develop into a starter. Youboty is fast and shows good coverage skills.

3 (35) Jets Davin Joseph G Oklahoma
The line rebuilding project should continue here. With the departure of Kevin Mawae, Pete Kendall will shift to center. And Jonathan Goodwin left via free agency. That leaves Brandon Moore as the only guard of starting caliber. Many scouts consider Joseph the draft’s best run blocker. He would be a great value at pick No. 35.

4 (36) Packers Max Jean-Gilles G Georgia
Jean-Gilles plays with a mean streak and is an aggressive run blocker. He would be a high value pick for the Packers here.

5 (37) 49ers Jason Allen S Tennessee
Allen has recovered from a hip injury and recently was clocked at 4.39 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He shows the speed, range and instincts to anchor the Niners' secondary for years.

6 (38) Raiders Gabe Watson DT Michigan
The Raiders must replace DT Ted Washington, and Watson might be one of the few with the measurable skills to do it. Watson has great size, is strong and can occupy multiple blockers.

7 (39) Titans Kelly Jennings CB Miami (FL)
Jennings is this draft’s second-best bump-and-run cornerback, behind Clemson's Tye Hill. The Titans could put Jennings and Pac-Man Jones in man-to-man coverage and call more blitzes.

8 (40) Lions Taitusi Lutui G USC
Lutui is on the rise after a fantastic showing in his on-campus workout for scouts, coaches and GMs. He has great size and athleticism and would allow Damien Woody to move back to center, his natural position.

9 (41) Cardinals Ko Simpson* S S. Carolina
Adrian Wilson is one of the Cardinals’ top defensive players, but Robert Griffith is aging and must be replaced. Simpson can come in and start right away.

10 (42) Bills Tamba Hali DE Penn State
Hali was a productive pass rusher in college but did not perform well in pre-draft workouts, causing his stock to drop. Still, he plays faster than he tested. Buffalo could use another wave rusher to help Chris Kelsay and Aaron Schobel.

11 (43) Browns Sinorice Moss WR Miami (FL)
The Browns have a big possession receiver in Joe Jurevicius, and Braylon Edwards is expected to return from a torn knee ligament. Still, the team needs a receiver who can stretch the field. Moss has excellent speed, great leaping ability and is willing to fight for jump balls.

12 (44) Ravens Donte Whitner* S Ohio St.
Baltimore needs a safety to complement All-Pro Ed Reed. Whitner has good size, speed, athleticism and range, which would allow Reed to freelance more often and make plays on the ball.

13 (45) Eagles John McCargo* DT NC State
The defense lacks size and bulk, especially since dumping DT Corey Simon last year. McCargo is rising on many teams' draft boards, displaying excellent athletic ability for a 300-pounder.

14 (46) Rams Darnell Bing* S USC
Bing has good speed and athleticism and has the range and ball skills to play free safety and allow SS Corey Chavous to play closer to the line in run support.

15 (47) Falcons Joseph Addai RB LSU
T.J. Duckett and Warrick Dunn both still could be salary-cap casualties, and Addai has the size and speed to be a threat inside and outside.

16 (48) Vikings Brodie Croyle QB Alabama
QB Brad Johnson is in his 15th season, and Mike McMahon is no long-term answer. Clemson's Charlie Whitehurst still has a date to work out for Vikings officials following his minor shoulder surgery. Unless Whitehurst does something special in that workout, the Vikings will take Croyle. He has a strong arm and shows great toughness and leadership skills.

17 (49) Cowboys Pat Watkins S Florida St.
Watkins has good size and speed and is the perfect center fielder with good range and ball skills. He excels in zone coverage and can cover a lot of ground, which could free up Roy Williams to play closer to the line of scrimmage.

18 (50) Chargers Richard Marshall* CB Fresno St.
Marshall has the speed to excel in man-to-man coverage, and Chargers coaches want to move CB Sammy Davis to safety.

19 (51) Vikings Marcedes Lewis TE UCLA
(from Miami) Coach Brad Childress wants a young tight end to run the seam, like he had in Philly with L.J. Smith. Leonard Pope is big but lacks vertical speed. Lewis is the more polished receiver and should go here.

20 (52) Patriots Derek Hagan WR Arizona St.
The knock on Hagan has been a lack of speed, but he squashed that issue in pre-draft workouts. Deion Branch has been limited by injuries, Troy Brown is almost 35, and newly signed Reche Caldwell is a career underachiever. Hagan is polished, has good hands and could contribute right away.

21 (53) Redskins Rocky McIntosh OLB Miami (FL)
With LaVar Arrington’s departure, Washington needs an outside linebacker to play the run behind end Andre Carter.

22 (54) Chiefs Daniel Bullocks S Nebraska
Bullocks has the speed and athleticism coach Herman Edwards prefers at safety, and veteran Sammy Knight falls short on both fronts. Bullocks ran a 4.38-second 40-yard-dash at the NFL Combine.

23 (55) Bengals Claude Wroten DT LSU
Cincinnati can generate pressure on the edge but needs an inside force to collapse the pocket. Coach Marvin Lewis is considering switching to a two-gap scheme, and Wroten has the strength and versatility to play in that kind of system with improved focus.

24 (56) Giants Orien Harris DT Miami (FL)
The Giants need a defensive line anchor to replace Kendrick Clancy. Harris has the strength to hold his ground at the point of attack but also has the quickness to penetrate and pressure the quarterback.

25 (57) Bears Leonard Pope* TE Georgia
A viable receiving threat in the middle of the field, Pope would relieve pressure on WR Muhsin Muhammad and give QB Rex Grossman a reliable outlet. Pope is big and has excellent hands and would make for a nice red-zone target.

26 (58) Panthers Joe Klopfenstein TE Colorado
Kris Mangum is a nice blocker but gives the Panthers little as a receiver. Klopfenstein was productive in college and has the size and strength to develop into a solid blocker.

27 (59) Buccaneers Andrew Whitworth T LSU
Kenyatta Walker, a first-round pick in '01, could be cut. And with Tim Rattay and Luke McCown as the backup quarterbacks, the Bucs certainly must keep starter Chris Simms healthy. Whitworth is moving up draft boards because he is big, agile and fast.

28 (60) Jaguars Anthony Fasano* TE Notre Dame
Kyle Brady is built like a house and is an excellent blocker, but the Jags need some production out of that position in the passing game. Fasano is a tough, blue-collar kid who can block and catch and will fight for every yard.

29 (61) Broncos Maurice Stovall WR Notre Dame
WR Rod Smith turns 36 soon, and WR Ashley Lelie is terminally inconsistent. Several teams like Stovall because he runs well, shows good hands and has experience in a pro-style offense, thanks to Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis.

30 (62) Colts Jon Alston OLB Stanford
Alston is the prototypical outside linebacker for the Tampa-2 scheme. He lacks ideal size but has the speed and range to make plays all over the field. Also, the Colts must replace David Thornton.

31 (63) Seahawks Ray Edwards* DE Purdue
Seattle must add youth and depth behind ends Bryce Fisher and Grant Wistrom, especially after losing out in the John Abraham sweepstakes.

32 (64) Steelers DeMario Minter CB Georgia
The Steelers still need depth at cornerback despite re-signing Deshea Townsend.

those are the WORST picks i've ever seen for miami. a PUNTER? donnie jones was a pro bowl alternate last year. jimmy williams will be lucky to be a first rounder this year, no way miami takes him at 16. skyler green is a kick returner, we have TWO good ones.

Agreed, not overly sure why we'd get Darryl Tapp and not get a DB somewhere in there. Other than that it is pretty nice.

Yeah I'm a little surprised at the Tapp pick also. If we were still runnig the 3-4 and they were going to try to stand him up...? 3rd is kinda high for a small DE that will be a situational pass rusher. I hope all of you guys who are righ High
on Winston are right. That knee really worries me.

04-15-2006, 12:27 AM
i like this mock, but the only thing i would change would be to get a guard like Will Allen or somebody solid in the late round. We need to get depth at the offensive line.
I agree with this. I was Looking for the kid from Louisville, Spits I believe. He's played just about every position on Louisvilles line, and I haven't seen his name being metioned anywhere.I believe he's a three year starter. I wathed a couple of his games I believe he could play in our scheme. What I saw of him he was very good. Agile and quick. He is truely a sleeper pick this year. Wouldn't be a bad day two developemental guy. I also like The Penn St QB as a developemental guy. I think he's atheltic enough to learn the WR postion. Wouldn't make a bad #2 WR a couple of years down the road.

April 21st update

PICK TEAM PLAYER POS SCHOOL
1 (1) Texans Reggie Bush* RB USC
GM Charley Casserly says he is open for trade business, but it is unlikely that any team will offer the booty required to get this valuable pick. So, that will leave the Texans to select the most versatile offensive threat in the draft and team him with Domanick Davis.

2 (2) Saints Matt Leinart QB USC
When all is said and done, if the Saints are forced to make this pick Leinart is the best player available. DE Mario Williams isn't a pressing need, and if they are telling the truth about moving Jamaal Brown to LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson isn't a perfect fit. It's too high for A.J. Hawk, Vernon Davis or Haloti Ngata. The Saints need insurance in case Drew Brees isn't the long term answer.

3 (3) Titans D'Brickashaw Ferguson T Va.
Coach Jeff Fisher and staff loved him at the Senior Bowl. If Leinart is gone, Ferguson is a no-brainer.

4 (4) Jets Mario Williams* DE NC State
Williams has the size to play the end in new coach Eric Mangini's 3-4 scheme. Like Belichick, expect Mangini to stockpile ends with the versatility to dominate as a pass rusher and stuff the run.

5 (5) Packers A.J. Hawk OLB Ohio St.
Hawk will be a great complement to Nick Barnett. With a rebuilt line in front of these linebackers, the Packers will start to look like a very good defensive team.

6 (6) 49ers Vernon Davis* TE Maryland
Eric Johnson is one of the best receiving tight ends in the business but he's never on the field. Davis is the best receiver in this draft, but also has the size and strength to withstand the beating he'll take. He is an elite target for young QB Alex Smith.

7 (7) Raiders Haloti Ngata* DT Oregon
We know, we know, Vince Young. But Ngata is just too good a value and too big a need to pass up. He's a massive run stuffer, and he can step into Ted Washington's spot next to Warren Sapp. The Raiders also have sack leader Derrick Burgess on the line. Opponents can't block them all.

8 (8) Bills Brodrick Bunkley DT Florida St.
Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell was with Lovie Smith in St. Louis and Chicago. He is installing the Tampa-2 scheme and needs a Sapp-type player for his 4-3 front. Bunkley is quick and athletic, and he can collapse the pocket from the interior.

9 (9) Lions Michael Huff S Texas
Huff more than fits the team’s need for a top-flight safety. Plus, he’s versatile, is physical against the run, has cornerback skills in coverage and can take away the middle of the field.

10 (10) Cardinals Winston Justice* T USC
For all the complaints about the lack of a running game and their quarterbacks’ shortcomings, the Cardinals’ problems start on the line. Justice can step in for Oliver Ross at right tackle, his natural position, and give Kurt Warner and Edgerrin James the protection they need.

11 (11) Rams Vince Young* QB Texas
We still don't think Young is a top-10 pick, and if someone can convince Al Davis that the Raiders have greater immediate needs Young could fall here. New coach Scott Linehan has had great success with projects like Young.

12 (12) Browns Manny Lawson OLB NC State
Every NFL team using a 3-4 defensive scheme projects Lawson as a standup outside linebacker, a la Lawrence Taylor. Lawson has outstanding size and speed and can rush the passer; he had 17 sacks the past two seasons. Although Lawson played end in college, he also can drop into coverage. A rare athlete, Lawson is flying up draft boards and could be a key to the Browns' defensive success.

13 (13) Ravens Jimmy Williams CB Va. Tech
Many scouts toy with the idea of moving Williams to safety. He has the size to make the move, and his speed will help him cover ground in the deep middle where he can use his playmaking skills.

14 (14) Eagles Chad Jackson* WR Florida
WR Reggie Brown, a second-round pick last year, played well down the stretch but lacks Jackson's big-play ability.

15 (15) Broncos Santonio Holmes* WR Ohio St.
(from Atlanta) Rod Smith isn't getting any younger and Ashley Lelie is inconsistent. Holmes isn't big, but he has game-breaking speed and can be a weapon in the return game.

16 (16) Dolphins Jay Cutler QB Vandy
Coach Nick Saban knows Cutler from his college coaching days. Cutler has all the tools to be an above-average quarterback and can learn behind Daunte Culpepper.

17 (17) Vikings DeMeco Ryans OLB Alabama
The Vikings signed OLB Ben Leber from the Chargers to play the strong side and need a versatile weakside linebacker to complement him. Ryans is strong against the run, can play in coverage and rush the passer.

18 (18) Cowboys Kamerion Wimbley OLB Florida St.
When Bill Parcells coached the Giants, he drafted LB Carl Banks a year after taking Lawrence Taylor. Parcells could repeat the exercise by drafting Wimbley a year after Demarcus Ware. Wimbley is moving up many teams' draft boards, and his speed and versatility would create opportunities for Ware.

19 (19) Chargers Tye Hill CB Clemson
With the trade of Sammy Davis, the Chargers are left with only Quentin Jammer and Drayton Florence at cornerback. At the least, Hill can be an immediate nickel back and develop into a starter down the line.

20 (20) Chiefs Johnathan Joseph* CB S. Carolina
Joseph has good size and blazing speed. He will make plays on the ball, which Herman Edwards stresses in his defenses. He also returns punts and kicks.

21 (21) Patriots Chad Greenway OLB Iowa
The Patriots need an outside linebacker with speed to rush off the edge and the toughness to make plays against the run. Greenway didn't perform particularly well in pre-draft workouts, but he always is around the ball. He never stops hustling, a key trait for coach Bill Belichick.

22 (22) 49ers Bobby Carpenter OLB Ohio St.
(from Washington through Denver) With the departure of free-agent outside linebackers Andre Carter and Julian Peterson, the Niners have a dire need at that position. San Francisco needs playmakers who can rush the passer, fill gaps against the run and drop into coverage. Carpenter is a complete player with good intelligence and instincts. He is fully recovered from a broken bone in his leg sustained in November. He is tough and loves football.

23 (23) Buccaneers Ernie Sims* OLB Florida St.
Bucs coaches love Sims' speed and playmaking ability and see him as the next Derrick Brooks. Defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin's scheme doesn't require much size at middle linebacker, so Sims could start there in '06 and slide to the weak side when Brooks, who is entering his 12th season, moves on.

24 (24) Bengals Nick Mangold C Ohio St.
Rich Braham, 35, is nearing the end of his career. Mangold could take over quickly as the line-caller to help protect QB Carson Palmer as he returns from a knee injury.

25 (25) Giants Thomas Howard OLB UTEP
The Giants were decimated by injuries at linebacker in ’05, exposing their lack of depth. They would have loved to have gotten Carpenter here, but Howard has excellent speed and is a physical tackler. He is a good fit for coach Tom Coughlin's defense.

26 (26) Bears Antonio Cromartie* CB Florida St.
With CB Charles Tillman expected to move to safety and CB Jerry Azumah announcing his retirement, the Bears need help. Cromartie is healthy after missing the '05 season with a knee injury, and he has great hands and excellent speed.

27 (27) Panthers Marcus McNeill T Auburn
McNeill is a natural left tackle with outstanding size and athleticism. By drafting McNeill, Travelle Wharton can be moved to right tackle and Jordan Gross shifted inside to guard.

28 (28) Jaguars Mathias Kiwanuka DE Boston Coll.
The Jaguars have two solid ends in Reggie Hayward and Paul Spicer, but they need a pass rusher to complement the strong inside rush of defensive tackles Marcus Stroud and John Henderson. Kiwanuka has good size, and when rushing the passer shows excellent quickness and closing speed. He plays faster than his 40-yard dash times in pre-draft workouts.

29 (29) Jets Eric Winston T Miami (FL)
(from Denver) It won’t matter who plays quarterback it the Jets don’t fix their dysfunctional offensive line. Adrian Jones and Marko Cavka are undersized and have 16 NFL starts between them. Winston is extremely athletic for his size, and he has the strength to anchor against bigger defenders.

30 (30) Colts DeAngelo Williams RB Memphis
Priority here is for speedy back who can execute the stretch play. Williams fits and has excellent cutback ability. He can explode through the hole and make plays in the open field.

31 (31) Seahawks Davin Joseph G Oklahoma
Pork Chop Womack is the first option to replace RG Steve Hutchinson, who left as a free agent. But LG Chris Gray is in his 14th season and there is no depth at the position. Joseph is the draft’s best run-blocker.

32 (32) Steelers Jason Allen S Tennessee
Chris Hope’s departure makes free safety a pressing need. Allen has blazing speed and good size, and can cover a lot of ground. He would allow Troy Polamalu to freelance.

HoustonFrog
04-21-2006, 10:28 PM
Rd 2 update April 21st

1 (33) Texans Ko Simpson* S S. Carolina
Coaches love FS C.C. Brown but need a strong safety who has the speed to cover and the size, strength and tackling skills to support the run. Simpson fills the bill and shows plenty of playmaking ability.

2 (34) Saints Ashton Youboty* CB Ohio St.
The Saints are in immediate need of a nickel back who could develop into a starter. Youboty is fast and shows good coverage skills.

3 (35) Jets Laurence Maroney* RB Minnesota
It’s time to begin looking for an impact player to replace Curtis Martin. Maroney has the speed to be an outside threat and the size and toughness to fight for yards inside.

4 (36) Packers Max Jean-Gilles G Georgia
Jean-Gilles plays with a mean streak and is an aggressive run blocker. He would be a high value pick for the Packers here.

5 (37) Broncos Rodrique Wright DT Texas
(from San Francisco) Wright is a younger, more athletic version of current starter Michael Myers. Though not fast, Wright has the quickness to shoot the gaps as a pass rusher and the size to hold his ground at the point of attack.

6 (38) Raiders Taitusi Lutui G USC
Lutui is on the rise after a fantastic showing at USC’s on-campus workout. He brings great size and athleticism to the position and will allow Langston Walker to move back to his natural tackle spot.

7 (39) Titans Kelly Jennings CB Miami (FL)
Jennings is this draft’s second-best bump-and-run cornerback, behind Clemson's Tye Hill. The Titans could put Jennings and Pac-Man Jones in man-to-man coverage and call more blitzes.

8 (40) Lions Gabe Watson DT Michigan
Dan Wilkinson is in his 12th season and the middle of the defensive line lacks size and bulk. Watson is massive and would be the best run-stuffer on the board.

9 (41) Cardinals Marcedes Lewis TE UCLA
It might take more than one football to pacify the team’s flock of explosive playmakers. Lewis is a stud who passes the eyeball test with flying colors. A solid receiver who makes tough catches, he would draw defenders away from wideouts Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. He would add a dimension to an already potent offense and create room for RB Edgerrin James.

10 (42) Bills Donte Whitner* S Ohio St.
Troy Vincent is in his 15th season, and though he started 16 games in ‘05 it was the first time in five years he did so. Whitner has excellent size and speed and can cover a lot of ground.

11 (43) Browns Sinorice Moss WR Miami (FL)
The Browns have a big possession receiver in Joe Jurevicius, and Braylon Edwards is expected to return from a torn knee ligament. Still, the team needs a receiver who can stretch the field. Moss has excellent speed, great leaping ability and is willing to fight for jump balls.

12 (44) Ravens John McCargo* DT NC State
Despite signing DE Trevor Pryce, the team should add youth and speed to its aging defense. McCargo is a fast riser on many team boards, displaying excellent athletic ability for a 300-pounder.

13 (45) Eagles LenDale White* RB USC
This pick brings a big, physical back to run between the tackles and complement the work of Brian Westbrook on the perimeter. Despite his poor postseason, White is an excellent value here.

14 (46) Rams Tamba Hali DE Penn State
Here’s a chance to upgrade over Tony Hargrove at right end. Hali was very productive in college and has better edge rush speed than his workout times would indicate.

15 (47) Falcons Richard Marshall* CB Fresno St.
DeAngelo Hall is a very good corner, but lacks ideal size. Behind him, the depth chart lacks an impact cover man. Marshall has excellent speed and very good man coverage skills.

16 (48) Vikings Brodie Croyle QB Alabama
QB Brad Johnson is in his 15th season, and Mike McMahon is no long-term answer. Clemson's Charlie Whitehurst still has a date to work out for Vikings officials following his minor shoulder surgery. Unless Whitehurst does something special in that workout, the Vikings will take Croyle. He has a strong arm and shows great toughness and leadership skills.

17 (49) Cowboys Pat Watkins S Florida St.
Watkins has good size and speed and is the perfect center fielder with good range and ball skills. He excels in zone coverage and can cover a lot of ground, which could free up Roy Williams to play closer to the line of scrimmage.

18 (50) Chargers Rocky McIntosh OLB Miami (FL)
In their 3-4 defense, the Chargers need linebackers who can run to the ball and make plays. Steve Foley and Randall Godfrey have been around forever, and Donnie Edwards is on the trading block. McIntosh is an excellent player with good speed and tackling ability if he can stay focused on football.

19 (51) Vikings Leonard Pope* TE Georgia
(from Miami) Coach Brad Childress wants a young tight end to run the seam, like he had in Philadelphia with L.J. Smith. He would prefer Marcedes Lewis, but Lewis probably will be gone. Pope isn't as fast, but is a big target and a productive receiver.

20 (52) Patriots Derek Hagan WR Arizona St.
The knock on Hagan has been a lack of speed, but he squashed that issue in pre-draft workouts. Deion Branch has been limited by injuries, Troy Brown is almost 35, and newly signed Reche Caldwell is a career underachiever. Hagan is polished, has good hands and could contribute right away.

21 (53) Redskins Claude Wroten DT LSU
Wroten adds depth to a solid group of linemen and will work in rotation with Cornelius Griffin and Joe Salave'a. He is an inside force who can occupy multiple blockers or penetrate the pocket.

22 (54) Chiefs Daniel Bullocks S Nebraska
Bullocks has the speed and athleticism coach Herman Edwards prefers at safety, and veteran Sammy Knight falls short on both fronts. Bullocks ran a 4.38-second 40-yard-dash at the NFL Combine.

23 (55) Bengals Joe Klopfenstein TE Colorado
It’s been years since the team had a productive tight end. Klopfenstein has the receiving skills to force defenses to account for him in the middle of the field and give more favorable coverage to Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh on the perimeter.

24 (56) Giants Orien Harris DT Miami (FL)
The Giants need a defensive line anchor to replace Kendrick Clancy. Harris has the strength to hold his ground at the point of attack but also has the quickness to penetrate and pressure the quarterback.

25 (57) Bears Anthony Fasano* TE Notre Dame
A viable threat in the middle would take pressure off WR Muhsin Muhammad and give Rex Grossman a reliable outlet receiver. Fasano is tough and has excellent hands, and will work for every yard. He’s a perfect blue-collar worker for this team.

26 (58) Panthers Joseph Addai RB LSU
Addai provides great value and might be the fastest back in this class. DeShaun Foster is the starter, but has a history of breaking down.

27 (59) Buccaneers Andrew Whitworth T LSU
Kenyatta Walker, a first-round pick in '01, could be cut. And with Tim Rattay and Luke McCown as the backup quarterbacks, the Bucs certainly must keep starter Chris Simms healthy. Whitworth is moving up draft boards because he is big, agile and fast.

28 (60) Jaguars Darnell Bing* S USC
Speed is a crying need in the secondary. Bing is a very good athlete and can play free safety next to Donovin Darius.

29 (61) Broncos Jon Alston OLB Stanford
Alston is a depth pick here. He is the prototypical small, fast, smart player the Broncos covet.

30 (62) Colts DeMario Minter CB Georgia
Minter has speed and playmaking ability and can contribute in sub packages right away. But he could provide a great future pairing at cornerback with 2005 pick Marlin Jackson.

31 (63) Seahawks Ray Edwards* DE Purdue
Seattle must add youth and depth behind ends Bryce Fisher and Grant Wistrom, especially after losing out in the John Abraham sweepstakes.

32 (64) Steelers Maurice Stovall WR Notre Dame
Antwaan Randle El is gone, and Hines Ward isn't getting any younger. Stovall is a reliable receiver who does all the little things and has experience playing in a pro-style system.

HoustonFrog, interesting 2nd round you have. Ko Simpson is definitely not worth the #33 pick, he's being talked about as a 3rd rounder now. I wouldn't mind us taking him in the 3rd, but it is not going to happen at #33. I would easily take Donte Whitner or Richard Marshall at #33 long before I take Simpson there, and if LenDale White and especially Laurence Maroney are somehow available at #33, you draft him and trade him because you will get some nice value for him.

I can't take credit for that Mor, that is The Sporting News. I'm just flashing their updates here because I have the subscription and thought people might want to see it. But I agree with you completely on the 33rd pick. I still think if Winston is there they are taking him.

Last update from TSN of who they will take

ROUND 1
Round 1, Pick 1
Reggie Bush
RB, USC
Inside running: Lacks the bulk to move the pile but still is effective running between the tackles. Uses great body control, quickness, elite speed and superior vision to recognize the hole and burst through the smallest crease. Is more powerful than size would indicate, and has room to add bulk. Grade: 8.4.
Outside running: Is a home-run threat every time he touches the ball. Is elusive and will bounce outside or hit the cutback lane as soon as he reaches the second Full analysis


ROUND 2
Pick Projected Player Pos. School
1 (33) Mathias Kiwanuka DE Boston Coll.
Once thought to be a possible top-10 pick, Kiwanuka could slip further than this because scouts question his passion for the game. Still, he has great pass-rush skills and was outstanding in college. He could help the Texans immediately as a wave rusher.
ROUND 3
Pick Projected Player Pos. School
1 (65) Marcus McNeill OT Auburn

2 (66) Daniel Bullocks S Nebraska
(from New Orleans)
ROUND 4
Pick Projected Player Pos. School
1 (98) Keith Ellison OLB Oregon St.

ROUND 6
Pick Projected Player Pos. School
1 (170) Charles Davis TE Purdue

ROUND 7

43 (251) David Lonie P
