Default Interesting 2nd rd. Mock

33. OAKLAND RAIDERSTony UgohOT | Arkansas | Scouting Report Their offensive line is a complete and total mess so this pick will begin the rebuilding process.

34. DETROIT LIONSCharles JohnsonDE | Georgia | Scouting Report Cory Redding was moved to tackle with great success so they'll need to replace him outside.

35. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERSQuinn PitcockDT | Ohio St. | Scouting Report After seeing Warren Sapp and Booger McFarland leave in recent years they need help inside.

36. CLEVELAND BROWNSRyan KalilC | USC | Scouting Report LeCharles Bentley is coming back from injury but he can easily move to guard to make room.

37 ARIZONA CARDINALSJoe StaleyOT | Central Michigan | Scouting Report It looks like Leonard Davis will be leaving as a free agent so o-line is even more of a concern.

38. NEW YORK JETS (f/WAS)Kenny IronsRB | Auburn | Scouting Report Curtis Martin's career is over and while he did a solid job Leon Washington's not a workhorse.

39. MINNESOTA VIKINGSRobert MeachemWR | Tennessee | Scouting Report A potential first round talent who addresses what is without question their most glaring need.

40. HOUSTON TEXANSAnthony GonzalezWR | Ohio St. | Scouting Report Eric Moulds is getting older and there is not much depth so this guy is their future #2 wideout.

41. MIAMI DOLPHINSRyan HarrisOT | Notre Dame | Scouting Report They need o-line help and this guy has all the physical tools and a ton of starting experience.

42. ATLANTA FALCONSMarshal YandaOG | Iowa | Scouting Report Prospect with limited experience whose stock is soaring and could play either guard or tackle.

43. SAN FRANCISCO 49'ERSAaron RossCB | Texas | Scouting Report Walt Harris was a lot better than anyone could have expected but some depth is still needed.

45. ST. LOUIS RAMSLaMarr WoodleyDE | Michigan | Scouting Report Leonard Little's still one of the best in the business but they will need someone opposite him.

46. CAROLINA PANTHERSBuster DavisILB | Florida St. | Scouting Report Dan Morgan can't be counted on and this franchise had success with another short linebacker.

47. GREEN BAY PACKERSGreg OlsenTE | Miami (FL) | Scouting Report Bubba Franks is just not getting it done anymore and this guy can be a real weapon for Favre.

48. PITTSBURGH STEELERSAnthony SpencerDE | Purdue | Scouting Report Joey Porter and Clark Haggans will be free agents soon so it is time to start planning ahead.

49. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARSTroy SmithQB | Ohio St. | Scouting Report Byron Leftwich is most likely gone and neither David Garrard or Quinn Gray are the answers.

50. CINCINNATI BENGALSBrandon MeriweatherS | Miami (FL) | Scouting Report They've never been afraid of bad character guys before and he can help at safety and corner.

51. TENNESSEE TITANSChris HoustonCB | Arkansas | Scouting Report Cornerback is a big need here and this guy is a developing talent to team with Pacman Jones.

52. NEW YORK GIANTSBrian LeonardFB | Rutgers | Scouting Report Insurance for and a compliment to Jacobs who will also help to replace Tiki as a pass catcher.

53. DENVER BRONCOSJosh WilsonCB | Maryland | Scouting Report Will help replace Darrent Williams not only in the secondary but as a top return man as well.

54. DALLAS COWBOYSEric WeddleS | Utah | Scouting Report Anthony Henry may move to safety but if not this addresses what has been a big weakness.

55. KANSAS CITY CHIEFSCraig DavisWR | L.S.U. | Scouting Report They need to add a playmaker at wideout and this guy is a tremendous value late in Round 2.

56. SEATTLE SEAHAWKSJosh BeekmanOG | Boston College | Scouting Report They really miss Steve Hutchinson and Chris Gray and Pork Chop Womack are less than stellar.

57. NEW YORK JETSIkiaka Alama-FrancisDE | Hawaii | Scouting Report Extremely intriguing prospect to develop as the long-term replacement for Kimo von Oelhoffen.

59. PHILADELPHIA EAGLESDrew StantonQB | Michigan St. | Scouting Report Donovan McNabb just cannot seem to stay healthy and Jeff Garcia may leave as a free agent.

60. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTSDavid HarrisILB | Michigan | Scouting Report Tedy Bruschi is slowing down while Mike Vrabel is a better fit outside and there is little depth.

61. BALTIMORE RAVENSMichael BushRB | Louisville | Scouting Report There is a very good chance Jamal Lewis won't be back next year so they need a new runner.

62. SAN DIEGO CHARGERSRay McDonaldDE | Florida | Scouting Report They had some injury problems along the defensive line in '06 so it's time to bolster the depth.

I don't agree with the Jets pick, or the Texans pick for that matter.

Don't like the Texans pick. We need more help on the OL and DL than at receiver.

Hate the Texan's pick. Meriwether,Bush,D. Harris,Houston,Kalil,Ugoh,R. Harris are much better picks and provide immediate help. Moulds is getting older but he ain't dead. The guy can still produce besides if Carr looks his way more often, he could put up some nice numbers.

IMHO, Gonzalez would be the BPA. Maybe I just think higher of the guy than most...

I think we have more pressing needs and the WR may not be the bpa for us...

depending on what our scouts thinks of these guys I would pick them ahead of gonzalaz assuming we got peterson in the 1st like they have.

Ryan Harris OT
Aaron Ross CB
Lamaar Woodley DE
Buster Davis LB
Brandon Meriweather FS
Chris Houston CB
Victor Abiamiri DE

I don't really disagree with you....

But IMHO, Gonzo is better than all the guys on your list. I agree that we have more pressing needs, but I don't agree that you fill positions by "need first". I hope the Texans grab the most talented player on the board in every rd. no matter what position that player may play(with in reason). I think the talent range in the NFL is too narrow for us to reach on needs. I'm not saying we should pick Gonzalez....Unless he's the most talented player there when we pick....

I like the surname. It would sure put some butts in the seats at Reliant.
And I remember seeing him play a couple times last fall - he looked good.
But we have so many needs, and this is not a real high priority need at this time.

I agree with this especially those in bold, don't really agree with Harris because he didn't do anything by all accounts at the Senior Bowl. Harris could probably be had in the third if we want him.

Default Re: Interesting 2nd rd. Mock

I'm with you Addict. We come away with either Houston or Merryweather with the thirty nine I would be very pleased. I'm not as high as you are on Ross. I think he is at best a nickle guy coming out. The other two have a chance to start for you. Further...Houston just may push Dante to the right side in '08. We'll see.

I don't really agree that you can just pick the best player available and have a good draft. You have to take into account how high a player is rated compared to the other prospects, but you also have to consider how much of an upgrade each is to what you already have at that position. If the top rated player is only a slight upgrade over the player you already have on your roster, but a player rated a few slots lower is a huge upgrade at his position, you get more value by going with the bigger upgrade. Also, youcan't always take BPA because what if the BPA when your team picks is always a WR (for example), you wouldn't continue to pick WRs just because they are BPA. Team needs are always considered.

You can if you are Detroit.


Just ignore me I'm

Serious, I think it is both. The Rounds 1 and 2: What your team needs is more of a factor than BPA. Rounds 3 and 4: They are about even. And Rounds 5, 6, and 7: BPA is more important.

Definitly have to take the best player if he's rated a lot higher than the others. i agree that i don't think "gonzo" is rated that much higher if at all by us or any team than chris houston or brandon meriweather..which are both coming from one of the biggest needs of our team.
