and picked up a magazine on the 2007 draft, and it actually had Kevin Kolb Rated as a first round talent, second QB taken in the draft and had Quinn rated as third round talent. Didn't really have anything bad to say about Kolb, even thought he'd make a better than average NFL starter and thought that Quinn had too many question marks. Interesting...I for one agree with that assessment.

Hey, I was there too! You didn't happen to be in the Woodlands did ya?

Anyways, yup, draft Kolb, Smith or Stanton in the 3rd!! Not the 2nd though.

I can understand not being high on Quinn. He's got Question marks for sure... but not the kind that'll make drop him to a third round pick.

Kolb on the other hand, being a system QB should. Nothing against Kolb, if the coaches want him, that's fine by me. But I can see the argument for Kolb in the third, and Quinn in the first much easier than the other way around.

I posted this on another thread. It was from "The Sporting News." It wasn't Brady picked in the 3rd round. It was BQ picked 3rd QB with Russell, Kolb, and then Quinn.

It wasn't 3rd round..it was the 3rd QB picked.

The only way Russell gets picked ahead of Quinn is if Al in Oakland picks him for that killer arm. That's about it.

If anyone has questions surrounding him of those three it's Kolb then Russell. System QB who played in Conference USA. Makes me nervous personally like drafting a Texas Tech QB. But he could jsut bea QB taht got put in it....lots of questions with that IMO.

At least Russell has played in the SEC.

IMO even with all the hype. Quinn is hands down the best QB in this draft and aside from Brohm could even be better then next year's crop.

The mag. is sporting news and I picked up a copy today. There first round pick for us is Jamaal Anderson(DE). Has Quinn droping all the way to KC with the 23 pick(Don't see that happening) Are sec. rd. they go with Kenny Irons(RB)and the third rd. Drew Stanton(QB) Strange that on page 12 is a list of "Could be Busts" and #2 is none other than Mr. Stanton on the list.

I buy just about all these pre-draft mags. and this was the 1st I've seen so a pick it up not reading much into it though its still to early but it does have player profiles that make for good throne time reading.

Didn't KC draft Croyle last year? Isnt he supposed to be their QB of the future? I don't see KC taking Quinn, even if he was there. They could use some D help though.

That's what I say too, it's Al wanting that deep bomb...any other team would take Quinn...Cleveland included imo...although we've heard otherwise.

Question marks for Quinn so he falls? There are more question marks for russell and kolb and stanton imo. There are ?'s for every QB...including Vince, Leinart, and Cutler from last year!

Don't know who there back-up is the little comment just says that there G.M. likes him and Green is going to be 37 this year. I dont put much stock in this mock though has Posluszny going 9th to the Fins and Okoye droping to 18th with cinn. Also has Minn. taking Ginn 7th. The more I look at it the more i shake my head and think what was this guy smoking

There is a better chance posluzny falls to the 2nd round than him going top ten. okoye SHOULD be gone by 13imo. that writer sounds crazy.

I really wanted Brodie to play during the preseason game but they never put him in against us...I wanted to see Demeco sack him ...former teammates and all.

Yeah, it wasn't that he was actually going to get drafted in the third, they just have him graded as a third round talent. also, they love Kolb and rate him as the 16th best player in the draft

This site hasn't been updated in..my guess would be 5 months.

look at the player rankings on the right as you scroll down..

Brian Brohm is listed as a 2007 prospect
Levi Brown=4th rated OT
Kalil=#2 C
Okoye/Branch not on DT top 5?
Landry= #4 safety...nelson not listed
Peterson/lynch not listed at RB.

what the heck is going on!? lol

2007 Mock Draft Last updated 3/12/2007

The draft order is based on the current NFL standings. The Mock Draft is updated each Wednesday through April.

View round: 1 | 2 | 3
KEY *
MOCK DRAFT: ROUND 1
PICK TEAM PLAYER POS SCHOOL
1 (1) Raiders JaMarcus Russell* QB LSU
Raiders officials love Russell and Georgia Tech WR Calvin Johnson but know they need a quarterback to start the rebuilding process.
Team needs: QB | OT | WR | DT | RB | DE

2 (2) Lions Joe Thomas T Wis.
Even after trading for OT George Foster, the Lions still should draft Thomas with the idea they always can trade Foster.
Team needs: DE | ILB | OT | G | CB | S | WR

3 (3) Browns Adrian Peterson* RB Oklahoma
Browns officials are sure to be tempted to take Johnson or QB Brady Quinn but should go with Peterson despite his history of injuries.
Team needs: RB | DE | CB | G | NT | QB | OT | C | OLB

4 (4) Buccaneers Calvin Johnson* WR Georgia Tech
Bucs officials will consider DT Amobi Okoye to fill their biggest need, but coach Jon Gruden won't pass on a chance to take Johnson and his freakish skills.
Team needs: DT | DE | S | OT | OLB | G | FB

5 (5) Cardinals Gaines Adams DE Clemson
The Cardinals are not desperate for a defensive end, but Adams is a rare game-changing pass rusher.
Team needs: OT | OLB | CB | RB | TE | DE | G

6 (6) Redskins Alan Branch* DT Michigan
Redskins coach Joe Gibbs hopes to get Adams at this spot. If he is off the board, Gibbs will take Branch to clog the middle -- even though many have Amobi Okoye rated higher.
Team needs: DT | CB | DE | S | ILB | OLB | G

7 (7) Vikings Leon Hall CB Michigan
The Vikings' top priorities are at wide receiver and cornerback. After Hall's outstanding Combine workout and the loss of CB Fred Smoot, they should take Hall.
Team needs: WR | TE | DE | CB | OT | FB

8 (8) Texans Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame
The Texans, who are shopping incumbent QB David Carr, were unable to trade for former Denver QB Jake Plummer. In just six years of existence, the Texans just might be ready to draft their second quarterback of the future.
Team needs: DT | ILB | CB | OT | G | RB | FB

9 (9) Dolphins LaRon Landry S LSU
Dolphins officials might consider reaching for Penn State OT Levi Brown but should play it safe and take the No. 1 safety, hoping an offensive tackle slips to them in Round 2.
Team needs: OT | OLB | G | S | QB | CB

10 (10) Falcons Jamaal Anderson* DE Arkansas
The Falcons must replace departed free-agent Patrick Kerney, and Anderson is big, strong and athletic.
Team needs: WR | G | S | CB | OT | RB | TE | C | DE

11 (11) 49ers Ted Ginn Jr.* WR Ohio St.
The 49ers might trade up for Branch. If they stay here, they should go with the draft's most explosive offensive weapon -- Ginn.
Team needs: OLB | CB | NT | S | WR | G

12 (12) Bills Patrick Willis ILB Ole Miss
After losing MLB London Fletcher-Baker to free agency, the Bills could replace him with Willis, who was outstanding at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Team needs: OT | DT | S | DE | CB | WR | G

13 (13) Rams Amobi Okoye DT Louisville
Although Rams officials would prefer not to take another defensive tackle in Round 1, after trading for DE James Hall, they do not need an end nearly as much.
Team needs: DE | DT | WR | ILB | G | RB | CB

14 (14) Panthers Greg Olsen* TE Miami (FL)
We still rate Arizona State's Zach Miller as the No. 1 tight end, but NFL coaches were wowed by Olsen's amazing performance at the Combine.
Team needs: ILB | S | G | DE | TE | FB | QB

15 (15) Steelers Charles Johnson* DE Georgia
If the Steelers switch to a 4-3 defense, they will need a traditional defensive end. Johnson is a big, strong and athletic.
Team needs: OLB | RB | CB | DE | WR | C | G

16 (16) Packers Marshawn Lynch* RB Cal
The Packers, after losing Ahman Green in free agency, can't go into the season with their current running back situation. Drafting Lynch at No. 16 would be the ideal scenario.
Team needs: WR | RB | CB | TE | S

17 (17) Jaguars Aaron Ross CB Texas
The Jaguars addressed their hole at offensive tackle by signing ex-Raven Tony Pashos, so they can move on to cornerback and draft Ross.
Team needs: QB | WR | S | FB | DE | OT | CB

18 (18) Bengals Jarvis Moss* DE Florida
The Bengals' biggest problem is their inability to consistently pressure quarterbacks, and Moss is an explosive speed rusher who would work great in a rotation with Justin Smith and Robert Geathers.
Team needs: DE | CB | S | DT | ILB | OT | TE | RB

19 (19) Titans Dwayne Bowe WR LSU
Titans officials hope one of the top four defensive ends drops to them. If not, they should go with the best-available wide receiver.
Team needs: DE | WR | S | CB | G | DT

20 (20) Giants Levi Brown T Penn State
Giants officials were hoping to re-sign Luke Petitgout, but he defected to Tampa Bay. Now, the team must draft a left tackle who can start immediately.
Team needs: OLB | CB | RB | DT | TE | C | WR | P

21 (21) Broncos Dwayne Jarrett* WR USC
Coach Mike Shanahan found his running back in ex-Titan Travis Henry. Bringing in Jarrett to join WRs Javon Walker and Brandon Marshall and new TE Daniel Graham would provide second-year QB Jay Cutler with a skilled supporting cast.
Team needs: DE | RB | CB | OT | S | DT | QB

22 (22) Cowboys Reggie Nelson* S Florida
The Cowboys filled their most pressing need by signing OG/OT Leonard Davis, giving them the option to go with a safety in Round 1. Team officials are sure to debate long between Nelson and Miami's Brandon Meriweather.
Team needs: G | S | WR | OT | OLB | NT | QB

23 (23) Chiefs DeMarcus Tyler DT NC State
The Chiefs must find a way to stop the inside run. After adding ex-Viking Napoleon Harris at middle linebacker, they should go with Tyler to shore up the line.
Team needs: DT | OT | WR | CB | ILB | TE

24 (24) Patriots Paul Posluszny OLB Penn State
(from Seattle) The Patriots already added ex-Raven Adalius Thomas outside but shouldn't stop there. Posluszny is intense, strong, instinctive and versatile enough to play inside or outside in a 3-4 scheme.
Team needs: ILB | OLB | S | WR | OT | CB

25 (25) Jets Zach Miller* TE Arizona St.
After trading for RB Thomas Jones, the Jets should continue revamping the offense by drafting the best overall tight end.
Team needs: DE | CB | RB | NT | OT | G

26 (26) Eagles Brandon Meriweather S Miami (FL)
The Eagles need help on the defensive line as well as the secondary, but Meriweather is the type of player coach Andy Reid loves because he consistently makes big plays.
Team needs: DE | S | RB | ILB | OLB | CB | WR

27 (27) Saints Tanard Jackson CB Syracuse
The Saints need much defensive help, and adding the tough and versatile Jackson would give them several personnel options in the secondary.
Team needs: CB | OLB | ILB | DT | TE | DE | QB | WR | OT

28 (28) Patriots Tony Ugoh T Arkansas
Patriots coach Bill Belichick and GM Scott Pioli are sure to debate whether to take a wide receiver and offensive lineman here. It might be tough to pass up this athletic, long-armed tackle.
Team needs: ILB | OLB | S | WR | OT | CB

29 (29) Ravens Ryan Harris T Notre Dame
With Thursday's trade for Buffalo RB Willis McGahee (for two third-round picks and a seventh-rounder), the Ravens solved their most pressing offseason need. The team did lose RT Tony Pashos in free agency, and LT Jonathan Ogden turns 33 in July. Harris is athletic and could play right tackle immediately and then shift to the left side when Ogden retires.
Team needs: RB | CB | OT | OLB | ILB | QB

30 (30) Chargers Aundrae Allison WR E. Carolina
Chargers GM A.J. Smith might consider S Aaron Rouse here but should go with the smooth, athletic and consistent Allison.
Team needs: S | WR | G | DT | RB | CB | OLB | ILB

31 (31) Bears Justin Blalock G Texas
The Bears need to add depth at several positions, and Blalock would be the most athletic offensive lineman on the board.
Team needs: S | OT | WR | TE | CB | OT | G | OLB

32 (32) Colts Jon Beason* OLB Miami (FL)
The Colts figure to lose free-agent OLB Cato June and could replace him with the undersized, athletic Beason.
Team needs: OLB | DT | WR | S | FB | OT | RB

KEY *
MOCK DRAFT: ROUND 2
PICK TEAM PLAYER POS SCHOOL
1 (33) Raiders Robert Meachem* WR Tennessee
The Raiders would prefer to draft an offensive lineman at this spot but should not pass on Meachem, who has a great combination of size and speed, especially with WR Randy Moss on the trade block.
Team needs: QB | OT | WR | DT | RB | DE

2 (34) Lions Justin Durant ILB Hampton
The Lions desperately need an inside linebacker to make coach Rod Marinelli's Tampa-2 defense work, and Durant projects perfectly into that role.
Team needs: DE | ILB | OT | G | CB | S | WR

3 (35) Buccaneers Baraka Atkins DE Miami (FL)
The Bucs need help along the defensive line after trading DT Anthony McFarland to the Colts last season and then losing DE Dewayne White to Detroit in free agency. Atkins is versatile enough to play end or tackle.
Team needs: DT | DE | S | OT | OLB | G | FB

4 (36) Browns Adam Carriker DE Nebraska
The Browns need a lot of help along the defensive line, and Carriker projects as a prototype end in a 3-4 scheme.
Team needs: RB | DE | CB | G | NT | QB | OT | C | OLB

5 (37) Bears Jason Hill WR Wash. St.
(from Washington through N.Y. Jets) Bears receivers have struggled to consistently produce. Hill is a strong receiver with good speed and excellent hands.
Team needs: S | OT | WR | TE | CB | OT | G | OLB

6 (38) Cardinals Lawrence Timmons* OLB Florida St.
Cardinals linebackers Darryl Blackstock, Gerald Hayes and Karlos Dansby are solid but not outstanding. Timmons is a big, strong guy who also can rush the passer.
Team needs: OT | OLB | CB | RB | TE | DE | G

7 (39) Texans Quentin Moses DE Georgia
Texans officials would prefer an offensive tackle at this spot but there doesn't figure to be an impact guy available. If the draft falls this way, they should gamble on Moses to help improve their pass rush.
Team needs: DT | ILB | CB | OT | G | RB | FB

8 (40) Dolphins Ryan Kalil C USC
Dolphins officials will think about reaching for Central Michigan OT Joe Staley but should go with the safer pick, Kalil, who would be an upgrade at center or guard.
Team needs: OT | OLB | G | S | QB | CB

9 (41) Vikings Sidney Rice* WR S. Carolina
The Vikings need a speed receiver to challenge the secondary downfield and help open up space in the defense.
Team needs: WR | TE | DE | CB | OT | FB

10 (42) 49ers Josh Beekman C Boston Coll.
The 49ers' offensive line struggled in '06, and Beekman, strong and athletic, could start at either center or guard.
Team needs: OLB | CB | NT | S | WR | G

11 (43) Bills Chris Houston* CB Arkansas
The Bills need help at cornerback after losing free agent Nate Clements to San Francisco. Houston is short but was a star at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Team needs: OT | DT | S | DE | CB | WR | G

12 (44) Falcons Ben Grubbs G Auburn
The Falcons' line struggled in stretches last season, and coach Bobby Petrino wants a more physical unit. Grubbs is big and athletic.
Team needs: WR | G | S | CB | OT | RB | TE | C | DE

13 (45) Panthers Aaron Rouse S Va. Tech
The Panthers are desperate for a good safety to pair with FS Mike Minter and should take a shot on the athletic Rouse.
Team needs: ILB | S | G | DE | TE | FB | QB

14 (46) Steelers Chris Henry* RB Arizona
The Steelers need a big back to complement starter Willie Parker. Auburn RB Kenny Irons is more explosive, but Steelers coaches love Henry's size and speed.
Team needs: OLB | RB | CB | DE | WR | C | G

15 (47) Packers Daymeion Hughes CB Cal
The Packers would be quite lucky if Hughes falls to No. 47. Hughes did not run well at the Combine but did redeem himself at his on-campus workout Tuesday.
Team needs: WR | RB | CB | TE | S

16 (48) Jaguars Kevin Kolb QB Houston
Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio named Byron Leftwich his starting quarterback for '07 but Leftwich has proved that he is not the long-term answer.
Team needs: QB | WR | S | FB | DE | OT | CB

17 (49) Bengals Marcus McCauley CB Fresno St.
The Bengals should gamble on uber-talented McCauley, who struggled as a senior and at the Senior Bowl but was fantastic at the Combine.
Team needs: DE | CB | S | DT | ILB | OT | TE | RB

18 (50) Titans Victor Abiamiri DE Notre Dame
The Titans struggled to pressure the quarterback in '06, and Abiamiri is a big, polished end who could help immediately.
Team needs: DE | WR | S | CB | G | DT

19 (51) Giants Eric Wright* CB UNLV
The Giants' secondary is mediocre to awful at every position. The team should be willing to gamble on Wright, who was Southern Cal's top defensive back as a redshirt freshman before running into off-field trouble and transferring.
Team needs: OLB | CB | RB | DT | TE | C | WR | P

20 (52) Rams Rufus Alexander OLB Oklahoma
The Rams' defense has holes everywhere, and Alexander is an undersized but explosive linebacker who could help.
Team needs: DE | DT | WR | ILB | G | RB | CB

21 (53) Cowboys Anthony Spencer DE Purdue
The Cowboys need a pass rusher opposite OLB DeMarcus Ware as coach Wade Phillips tries to build a pass rush like he had in San Diego.
Team needs: G | S | WR | OT | OLB | NT | QB

22 (54) Chiefs Josh Wilson CB Maryland
The Chiefs' secondary needs a ton of help, and the team should take the athletic but short Wilson.
Team needs: DT | OT | WR | CB | ILB | TE

23 (55) Seahawks Marcus Thomas DT Florida
Seattle needs much help at defensive tackle and just might be willing to take a risk and draft Thomas, who would be a top-15 pick if not for his off-field problems.
Team needs: DT | S | DE | TE | OLB | G

24 (56) Broncos LaMarr Woodley DE Michigan
The Broncos tried hard to sign free agent Patrick Kerney but lost out to Seattle. There really isn't another impact pass rusher on the free-agent market, so the Broncos' fallback option is the draft.
Team needs: DE | RB | CB | OT | S | DT | QB

25 (57) Eagles Antonio Pittman* RB Ohio St.
RB Brian Westbrook is great now, but Eagles officials are adept at looking down the road. Pittman is a great talent but has fallen into the second round, and Eagles officials should consider themselves lucky if he were to last this long.
Team needs: DE | S | RB | ILB | OLB | CB | WR

26 (58) Saints Ray McDonald DT Florida
The Saints need help inside and should gamble that the undersized McDonald can hold up and be productive.
Team needs: CB | OLB | ILB | DT | TE | DE | QB | WR | OT

27 (59) Jets Darrelle Revis* CB Pitt
The Jets need a cornerback to solidify the secondary. Revis' draft stock is slipping, which could be a bonus for them.
Team needs: DE | CB | RB | NT | OT | G

28 (60) Dolphins Anthony Gonzalez* WR Ohio St.
(from New England) The Dolphins traded away slot receiver Wes Welker and could replace him with Gonzalez.
Team needs: OT | OLB | G | S | QB | CB

29 (61) Ravens DeAndre Jackson CB Iowa St.
GM Ozzie Newsome has shown a willingness to gamble on players coming off injuries, and Jackson has plenty of upside if he returns to 100 percent.
Team needs: RB | CB | OT | OLB | ILB | QB

30 (62) Chargers Eric Weddle S Utah
The Chargers, after cutting Terrence Kiel, need a safety to pair with FS Marlon McCree. Weddle is versatile and tough.
Team needs: S | WR | G | DT | RB | CB | OLB | ILB

31 (63) Jets Dan Bazuin DE Central Mich.
(from Chicago) The Bears should take the always-hustling Bazuin, who will make an impact on the team both on and off the field.
Team needs: DE | CB | RB | NT | OT | G

32 (64) Buccaneers Michael Griffin S Texas
(from Indianapolis) Tampa Bay officials will be tempted to trade up for Griffin and would be lucky if he slides this far.

View round: 1 | 2 | 3
KEY *
MOCK DRAFT: ROUND 3
PICK TEAM PLAYER POS SCHOOL
1 (65) Raiders Michael Bush RB Louisville
Raiders officials just renegotiated RB LaMont Jordan's contract, so coach Lane Kiffin can afford to slowly bring along Bush, a bruising back recovering from a broken leg sustained Sept. 2.
Team needs: QB | OT | WR | DT | RB | DE

2 (66) Lions Michael Coe CB Alabama St.
The Lions now use the Tampa-2 defense, and Coe fits that style perfectly. He is at his best on plays in front of him and likes to hit and tackle.
Team needs: DE | ILB | OT | G | CB | S | WR

3 (67) Browns Tony Franklin CB Va.
The Browns must upgrade the secondary, and Franklin is a versatile defensive back who could start at cornerback or safety in time.
Team needs: RB | DE | CB | G | NT | QB | OT | C | OLB

4 (68) Buccaneers Stewart Bradley OLB Nebraska
The Bucs have a variety of options they could address here -- safety, guard or linebacker -- but Bradley would be the best player available at the three positions of need.
Team needs: DT | DE | S | OT | OLB | G | FB

5 (69) Cardinals Joe Staley T Central Mich.
Arizona needs help along the offensive line, and Staley is athletic and has the potential to become great in time.
Team needs: OT | OLB | CB | RB | TE | DE | G

6 (70) Broncos James Marten T Boston Coll.
(from Washington) Broncos coach/GM Mike Shanahan also is eying Staley for this spot but also would be happy to get Marten here.
Team needs: DE | RB | CB | OT | S | DT | QB

7 (71) Dolphins John Beck QB BYU
Coach Cam Cameron says he is confident in QB Daunte Culpepper, but it's probably best to safeguard that decision. Beck has the smarts and accuracy to become a good starter in time and would be good insurance if Culpepper fails to regain his Pro Bowl form.
Team needs: OT | OLB | G | S | QB | CB

8 (72) Vikings Ikaika Alama-Francis DE Hawaii
Even though the Vikings have drafted defensive linemen highly in recent years, both defensive ends are coming off injuries. The team would be wise to take the raw but athletic Alama-Francis.
Team needs: WR | TE | DE | CB | OT | FB

9 (73) Texans David Irons CB Auburn
The Texans have struggled to find a quality cornerback to play opposite Dunta Robinson, the team's first-round pick in 2004. Irons, tough and physical, would be an ideal fit here.
Team needs: DT | ILB | CB | OT | G | RB | FB

10 (74) Bills Brandon Jackson* RB Nebraska
Bills GM Marv Levy is in serious trade discussions involving RB Willis McGahee, a free agent after the '07 season. Even if McGahee stays in Buffalo this year, he surely will leave after the season. The team should draft a big back who can develop into the feature back.
Team needs: OT | DT | S | DE | CB | WR | G

11 (75) Falcons Anthony Gonzalez* WR Ohio St.
The Falcons, after signing free agent Joe Horn, aren't as desperate for a wide receiver. They can afford to wait until the middle rounds to address this need. Gonzalez is underrated and too good to pass up at No. 75.
Team needs: WR | G | S | CB | OT | RB | TE | C | DE

12 (76) 49ers Paul Soliai DT Utah
The 49ers have struggled to find a strong nose tackle to anchor their shift to a 3-4 defense. Soliai is raw but has the size and strength to become a good NFL starter.
Team needs: OLB | CB | NT | S | WR | G

13 (77) Steelers Arron Sears G Tennessee
The Steelers consistently draft offensive linemen on Day 1 to maintain their offense performing at a high level despite free-agent losses.
Team needs: OLB | RB | CB | DE | WR | C | G

14 (78) Packers Ben Patrick TE Delaware
The Packers, after letting David Martin go and finally realizing that Bubba Franks never will be a consistent threat, must find a productive tight end.
Team needs: WR | RB | CB | TE | S

15 (79) Jaguars Kevin Payne S La.-Monroe
The Jaguars might lose safety Deon Grant in free agency, so adding the tough and smart Payne would be wise. Payne should be ready to start sooner than later.
Team needs: QB | WR | S | FB | DE | OT | CB

16 (80) Titans Kenny Irons RB Auburn
After cutting RB Travis Henry and losing RB Chris Brown in free agency, the team needs a back to share the load with LenDale White, a second-round pick last year. Irons if dropping down draft boards because of a lack of durability in college, but the Titans are in position to take a chance.
Team needs: DE | WR | S | CB | G | DT

17 (81) Giants Brian Leonard FB Rutgers
Leonard, from the Giants' backyard, is a versatile back who could split carries with Brandon Jacobs and be a real weapon catching passes.
Team needs: OLB | CB | RB | DT | TE | C | WR | P

18 (82) Rams John Wendling S Wyo.
The Rams are in a position to take a chance on the athletic Wendling, who played safety in college but is best suited to play cornerback in the NFL.
Team needs: DE | DT | WR | ILB | G | RB | CB

19 (83) Panthers David Harris ILB Michigan
Panthers officials love Harris and need insurance in case MLB Dan Morgan breaks down again. The Panthers will consider taking Harris in the second round and would be quite happy if he falls to them at No. 83.
Team needs: ILB | S | G | DE | TE | FB | QB

20 (84) Chiefs Jacoby Jones WR Lane
Chiefs GM Carl Peterson has been trying to find a solid wide receiver to play opposite Eddie Kennison for years and should take the super explosive Jones.
Team needs: DT | OT | WR | CB | ILB | TE

21 (85) Seahawks Marshal Yanda T Iowa
Yanda is athletic, tough and competitive and eventually could start at guard or right tackle.
Team needs: DT | S | DE | TE | OLB | G

22 (86) Broncos Josh Gattis S Wake For.
Gattis is a tough, hard-nosed player who could be a quality special teams player right away and eventually replace FS John Lynch, who turns 36 in September.
Team needs: DE | RB | CB | OT | S | DT | QB

23 (87) Cowboys Steve Smith WR USC
The Cowboys have Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn as starters, but both certainly are on the downside of their careers. The team would be wise to take a chance on the athletic and tough Smith for the future.
Team needs: G | S | WR | OT | OLB | NT | QB

24 (88) Saints Jay Moore DE Nebraska
The Saints figure to focus on their interior line with their picks in the early rounds but still need to add some depth at defensive end. Moore is similar to Bills DE Chris Kelsay, a fellow Cornhusker.
Team needs: CB | OLB | ILB | DT | TE | DE | QB | WR | OT

25 (89) Jets Julius Wilson T UAB
The Jets used two first-round picks to bolster the offensive line last year, but work remains to be done on that unit. Wilson, athletic and big, eventually could start at guard or right tackle.
Team needs: DE | CB | RB | NT | OT | G

26 (90) Eagles Paul Williams WR Fresno St.
Eagles officials also would consider Duke CB John Talley but should take a chance on the super athletic but wildly inconsistent Williams.
Team needs: DE | S | RB | ILB | OLB | CB | WR

27 (91) Patriots John Talley CB Duke
The Patriots' secondary is aging, and Talley is a smart, instinctive and versatile defensive back who could help at cornerback or safety.
Team needs: ILB | OLB | S | WR | OT | CB

28 (92) Ravens Drew Stanton QB Michigan St.
(from Baltimore) Bills QB J.P. Losman, a first-round pick in 2004, likely is in his last season in Buffalo unless he shows dramatic improvement in '07. It would be wise for the team to take a chance on Stanton and safeguard its future.
Team needs: RB | CB | OT | OLB | ILB | QB

29 (93) Chargers Lyle Sendlein C Texas
The Chargers' offensive line is solid, but GM A.J. Smith won't pass on the opportunity to add the versatile Sendlein, who played all along the offensive line in college.
Team needs: S | WR | G | DT | RB | CB | OLB | ILB

30 (94) Bears Brandon Mebane DT Cal
The Bears' defensive tackles were hobbled by injuries (Tommie Harris) and off-field issues (Tank Johnson) much of last season, and valuable backup Ian Scott figures to depart in free agency. The team would be wise to draft MeBane to begin restocking the unit.
Team needs: S | OT | WR | TE | CB | OT | G | OLB

31 (95) Colts Craig Davis WR LSU
Colts officials realize Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne are starting to get old, and the team cut slot receiver Brandon Stokley. Davis is an explosive, young receiver who can help in the slot and returning kicks.
Team needs: OLB | DT | WR | S | FB | OT | RB

This site hasn't been updated in..my guess would be 5 months.

look at the player rankings on the right as you scroll down..

Brian Brohm is listed as a 2007 prospect
Levi Brown=4th rated OT
Kalil=#2 C
Okoye/Branch not on DT top 5?
Landry= #4 safety...nelson not listed
Peterson/lynch not listed at RB.

what the heck is going on!? lol

It's baseball season . that's what they do. You guys go ahead and bang the Kolb drum. He's going to get ripped in here. He's not going to transition. No way no how.

I think it's funny that no one sees that it is not a site that has not been updated but rather just a tease and sample of the coverage if you pay. What do you think of the mock draft I posted above from the site?

I'd rather us take..

1. Laron Landry
2. Ryan Kalil
3. I don't know

I'd be happy with irons as cb, but if we chose landry...i'd be leaning towards Brian Leonard who i think kubes would like...he could be our FB/RB combo guy...says hes good at catching..how bout blocking?

Think about Leonard and Green in the backfield w/ a line of Spencer-Pitts-Kalil-Weary-Winston -> i like that.

Yeah I think the mag is outdated but the one in their web site, which I posted, I think is right on the money... Quinn to the Texans and Kolb to the Jags

I could live with that.

3. Kolb if he falls this far, worth the gamble as a third rounder.
4. Bannister (CB) or a deep threat WR
