The Miami Dolphins select, Alex Smith, QB, Utah

Resisting the urge to select Cedric Benson, the Dolphins look to Alex Smith to get them back on the map. Smith has a great mind to go with a great arm and should make the transition to the NFL smoothly. Alex is a exceptional field commander and reads defenses very well, his mobility will also be a plus for this young man as he emerges on to the NFL scene.

Thumbs up Browns Selection.

Defense wins championships. And nobody knows that better than Phil Savage, the man who drafted 10 pro bowlers on the Baltimore Ravens from 1996-2004. In 1996 he selected Jonathan Ogden, and Ray Lewis in the 1st round.

Savage signed a 5 year deal with the Browns, and will start with a bang by drafting Derrick Johnson, OLB from Texas. This will be the cornerstone of his defense for the next decade. And Johnson is one of the best linebackers to come along in years.

The Cleveland Brows select with the #3 overall pick, Derrick Johnson, from the University of Texas.

The Bears select with the 4th overall selection, Mike Williams, from USC



It was tough to decide between Mike Williams and Braylon Edwards. In the end, the size and athleticism of Mike Williams won out. The Bears dont need a Randy Moss.. they are a physical team and have been throughout their history. They need an Andre Johnson or Terrel Owens.. someone who is dominating enough to make their passing game explosive, but physical enough to do some run blocking as well.

Tampa Bay hasn't had a decent running back since the days of Warrick Dunn. While Michael Pittman is a servicable NFL starter, he is not the type of back that strikes fear into opposing teams. The Bucs picked up oft-injured Charlie Garner last offseason through free agency, who sat out most of the season with an injury.

With the 5th selection, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Ronnie Brown, RB, Auburn



This was a somewhat difficult decision to make as a GM...My first instinct was to take Barron out of FSU and use him as an insurance plan for when Todd Steussie decides to retire, but the need for a franchise back seemed more important...The main deciding factor for Brown over Caddilac or Benson was his combination of size, speed, and receiving ability...

The reality is that i should have worked harder to unload this pick because the salary cap strapped (again) Titans probably need the extra bodies after another off season of cutting veterans. The Titans after letting Samari go will by pass the Rolle family. The Tennessee Titans select Alex Barron OT FSU.

Barron is a good sized athlete with good feet and technique as at Left tackle and should be an anchor at the position for years even though he is probably a slight reach at the number 6 position.

The Raiders have many needs. With their top 2 gone (johnson& brown) ,they take the BPA . The Raiders have a good secondary but lack a punisher, someone who can do it all cover backs and tight ends, stuff the run make plays on the ball and make any WR think twice about coming into his area.

With the 7th pick the Raiders select. Thomas Davis S Georgia

With the 81st pick, Detroit selects James Butler FS from Georgia Tech.

NFL Draft Countdown

Strengths: Very smart...Good size and a solid frame...A leader and hard worker...Excels in coverage as well as run support...A playmaker...Still has a lot of potential.

Weaknesses: Doesn't have a lot of starting experience...Good, not great speed...Has to get stronger...Raw and has a ways to go in terms of technique.

Notes: All of his weaknesses can be corrected and he is the type of guy who will put in the time to improve...Very good prospect who still has a lot of upside.

- Scott Wright


NFL Fans.com

Pros: Good size, strong and athletic, has great upside.

Cons: Needs to work on the basics of the position more, just needs game experience and good coaching, has room to improve.

With the 82nd pick in the NFL draft, the New Orleans Saints select S Jammal Brimmer, UNLV. (6'1", 215, 4.6 40)

Some scouts feel he will drop, but this is the same guy that was mentioned in the same sentences as "first rounder" if he had come out last season. While his 40 time isn't amazing and he needs to work on his cover skills, he brings a physical presence and will hopefully be able to start within a year along with the other defensive picks Carlos Rogers and Darryl Blackstock.

With the 83rd pick in the NFL Draft the Cincinatti Bengals select Boomer Grigsby MLB Illinois State 6'1 241 4.47



With Jammal Brimmer gone, the Bengals turned to the next guy left on their draft board. Grigsby is the best talent left at MLB, and although he doesn't have ideal height to play MLB he more than makes up for it with is speed, productivity, and his extremely competitive nature. He has a nose for the ball, and he brings an intensity to the Bengals' LB corp that they've been missing since the departure of Takeo Spikes. With Marvin Lewis as his head coach Boomer will flourish in Lewis' LB friendly system.

With the 84th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select

OT Wesley Britt, 6'7" 309, Alabama



The powerful Britt is a road grader in the running game and has the size and wingspan to keep pass rushers at bay. He is also a very polished player who has worked hard to refine his technique. Wesley sustained a broken leg last year but has really healed up and is playing as good as any tackle in the nation right now. He was recently selected to the prestigious Street & Smith's and Walter Camp Football Foundation's 1st Team All-American Team. This monster is extremely talented, he was a 1st team All-ACC left tackle before his fracture. He is very good blocking downfield and powerful in the running game. Alabama had a tremendous running game all year despite injuries to backfield stars. Britt was the lead blocker for the SEC's best ground attack dominating with 55 knockdown blocks. Alabama OT Wesley Britt suffered a hairline fracture in his fibula and sat out for the Senior Bowl.

With their last pick in the 3rd Round of the NFL Draft the Cincinatti Bengals select Utah DT Sione Pouha 6'3 330.


He has excellent strength, and is very powerful. He's very athletic for his size, and is very quick off the ball. He's a great team leader, and the epitome of a good character guy. He has alot of potential, and he'll be a big help to the Bengals' run defense. He needs to work on his consistency, and, at 26, he's a little older than most rookies. Marvin Lewis should be able to "coach him up", and get a more consistant effort out of Pouha. This concludes the Bengals draft.

1st Round: DE Marcus Spears LSU
2nd Round: C Ben Wilkerson LSU
3rd Round: MLB Boomer Grigsby Illinois State
3rd Round: DT Sione Pouha Utah

The Bengals are relatively set on offense, and their major need is on the defensive side of the ball. Thus they directed 3 of their 4 first day picks towards the defense. Marcus Spears and Sione Pouha will give the Bengals the strong D-Line they've always sought. The better play by the D-Line will allow Cincinatti's linebackers to flow the ball easier, and that will only increase Boomer Grigsby's effectiveness. His speed and nose for the ball are among his best attributes, and with the DLine keeping the OLinemen off of the LBs you'll see Boomer excell at the NFL level. The Bengals OLine has long been a strength, and with Graham getting up there in years it was neccessary to find a young talented C in the draft to groom as his eventual replacement. By picking up the best C in the draft, Ben Wilkerson of LSU, the Bengals have assured that the OLine will continue to be a strength for many years to come. He'll have time to rehab his injury, and he'll have plenty of time to learn the playbook. With a stronger defense up the middle the Bengals have the liberty to pursue 'projects' in the second day of the draft like Goddard out of Marshall, or Matt Jones out of Arkansas.

With the 87th pick, the Detroit Lions select Atiyyah Ellison DT from Missouri.

This was a tough pick. I was torn between taking Kevin Everett(TE), Adrian McPherson(QB), Courtney Roby(WR), James Sanders(SS), & Atiyyah Ellison(DT).

I really need a SS, but since I lost out on Shazor & Donte Nicholson, I've decided to draft Tyjuan Hagler (OLB/SS) in the 4th or 5th round & convert him to a SS.

Kevin Everett could be a franchise TE someday, but Stephen Alexander is a solid player & I'm sticking with him.

Adrian McPherson is probably the best prospect left on the board &, for the team willing to take him, could be the steal of the draft. If he's on the board in the 4th round, I'll take him.

With Tai Streets most likely not returning next year, Roby would be a very nice addition. If he's on the board in the 4th & McPherson is gone, I'll take him or Brackins.

James Sanders (5'11" 205lbs, 4.60 40 yard dash) appears to be a solid SS prospect. However, he doesn't have the size & speed of Hagler (6'2" 230lbs, 4.49 40 yard dash). Hagler will be a SS in a LB's body.

Finally, that brings me to Atiyyah Ellison. With both Dan Wilkinson & Kelvin Pritchett being 32 & 36 years old respectively, it's definitely time to get some new blood to replace them in the DL. Ellison is a very productive player with good size, speed, & quickness. With Hall, Rogers, Ellison, & Tuck on the DL, Detroit will have a solid defensive front line for several years to come.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Kevin Everett, TE, Miami (FL)

The Bucs revert to a BPA strategy and select Everett who may not start right away but will be the heir apparent to an aging Ken Dilger...

The Indianapolis Colts select:

Michael Boley - OLB - Southern Mississippi




Boley was the C-USA defensive player of the year who compiled 60 TFLs & 28 career sacks as a 3 year starter at WOLB. Great special teams player as well. Excellent iinsurance for Colts who may lose David Thornton (RFA) in free agency this year or in '06.
