Default How Matt Leinhart's Decision Will Affect This Draft

I think Matt Leinhart's decision today to stay at USC has changed the outlook of this draft tremendously. Here is what I think:

The 49ers would have been a lock of Matt Leinhart. He was the only clearcut #1, and the only QB worth the #1 pick. With Leinhart gone, its hard to say what the 49ers are going to do. It depends who the GM is going to be. I think they trade down with the Chargers.

The Chargers will get the #1 pick in exchange for both of their 1st round picks. The Chargers will then take Dan Cody at #1 and move him to OLB in their 3-4 defense. He will be a complimant to Donnie Edwards and a prominant pass rusher OPPOSITE of Foley who had a great year.

Dolphins take Benson at #2, and the Browns will grab either Aaron Rogers or Alex Smith at #3. At #4 the Bears will trade down with Dallas for Dallas' 2 first rounders, and the Boys will get Adam Jones at #4 filling there CB need.

I could go on making predictions, some of them would be crazy. But with Leinhart gone I don't think there is now a clear cut #1, and that could change everything, with the 49ers not wanting the #1 pick, and probably hardly anybody else.

What does it mean to us? I think a lot of teams will be trading up ahead of us, and that scares me because on draft day it might get crazy. But I think some guys could fall under the cracks who we might be interested in: Derrick Johnson, Carlos Rogers, those type of players.

If the Chargers wanted Cody, they could probably select him at the Giants pick they got from the Eli deal.

I dont see the Dolphins taking Benson for one reason: It is well known that Benson idolizes Ricky Williams and I have this strange feeling that the Dolphins dont like Ricky. I truly feel that if the Browns take Rogers or Smith at #3 it will be a big reach. I have responded to you Pac-Man at #4 by the Cowboys but just in case you didnt see it: Pac-Man is a good corner but if the Cowboys do trade up it will be for Antrell Rolle and they could keep their two first rounders and get Pac-Man or maybe even Rolle at #11

People make too much of his idolization of Ricky Williams. He is his idol b/c of the way he plays! He looks up to him b/c he knew what it took to beat people when he wanted too, and Ced has looked up to him since he was a junior at Midland Lee.

I read somewhere that Parcells said that he is NOT taking a CB in this draft. Just something to think about.

At this time of year, if a coach is talking draft and his lips are moving, he is probably lying. Lots of smoke screening will be going on. Believe it only when it happens.

I said it in another thread and I'll say it again. The Cow-Girls need way to much help to even think about trading away their second first round pick. They are looking to a) fix the secondary, b) fix teh D-line, c) fix the O-line and d)find a #1 WR. Now with all those needs why would they give up a second first round pick, espically for a DB, in Jones, who isn't the clear cut #1 player at his postion?
