1. Clay Mathews
2. William Moore (I haven't given up on this guy yet)
3. DE (Johnson or Ayers or a sleeper like Sidbury)
4. Andre Brown (Maybe Glenn Coffee)
4. OG (Antoinne Caldwelle OG/C)
5. Pat White or Stephen McGee
6. RB (Speedster if we get someone with some bulk in the 4th)
7. WR or Blocking TE
I'd be disappointed but not devastated with Matthews at 15. I don't see how Johnson or Ayers would make it to round 3 though I do like Sidbuy there. I'd love Stephen McGee in round 5 and I think it's possible. I don't like Andre Brown. I think there are a lot of really good RBs in this draft and would really like to get a couple of guys with more good tape. That being said, the basic framework of your draft looks good.
Also, I really think we will be trading down in the first. I think there will be enough interest in our spot to get at least a mediocre deal. Here are some candidates that may attract traders:
1. Sanchez- LZ assured his readers that he won't make it past 20. Since picks 17-19 all have QB issues, our spot looks good for someone wanting to secure him.
2. Speedy WR- Maclin, Bey, or one of the other guys may be sitting there and a number of teams might be in love with him. Many of the teams selecting in the 20s are looking for speed and playmaking ability from the WR position: Miami, NYJets, Baltimore, Tennessee, NYGIants, NO, Minnesota.
3. Moreno/Wells- one or both of the top backs could be sitting there. Again, a complimentary and explosive RB is something many of the playoff-caliber teams are looking for. A few of the teams could see a player like that as the guy to get them over the hump, so to speak: Arizona, Philadelphia, Baltimore, New England, SD?, Indy.
4. OT- if one of them slips. Look at last year's first round!
