Out of the players who have been projected at or around 18 who would you take over Branden Albert if he were to fall to us at 18? I've gotta tell ya, I know he's not a LT but i've been hopping on his bandwagon as of late. We need a dominant interior OL to keep the Haynesworth and Henderson types in check on gameday and to see him plowing over defenders would be a beautiful sight on Sundays.

He's got all pro potential and I think if I had to choose with the Williams/Otah/Stewart/Cromartie/Jenkins/Phillips types on the board i'd have to go with Albert as of today.

Albert would be a great choice because I can see the Texans using his lateral quickness to move him to LT. Otherwise, CB Cason/FS Phillips/CB Jenkins wouldn't be bad options. But of course, this is all assuming that Chris Williams is off the board.

I would take him.

He is a good enough athelete to play LT. If it doesn't work out you have a quality G.

I would take Harvey over Albert @18, but if Gibbs wants Albert then I'm on board with this.

Pretty much all the left tackles and cornerbacks with 1st round possibility. Interior linemen just aren't 1st round material unless they are super, super good.

Albert is super good.

I would take DRC over anybody in the draft.

Deion & Jimmy Johnson believe he's going to be great & thats good enough for me.

1. Darren McFadden
2. Chris Long
3. Matt Ryan
4. Jake Long
5. Vernon Gholston
6. Glenn Dorsey
7. Sedric Ellis
8. Ryan Clady
9. Leodis McKelvin
10. Rashard Mendenhall
11. Dominique Rodgers
12. Chris Williams
13. Mike Jenkins
