Default Rick Gosselin's 2007 Draft Coverage

The master of the draft has started to post his thoughts/board/etc. I'll do my best to provide links and any relevant information.

Combine coverage:
http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont...n.2b7bf6d.html

Top 10:
http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont...0.2b7711e.html

Risers:
http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont...p.2b7ab96.html

Fallers:
http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont...n.2b79909.html

Nothing that graet yet, but after the owners meetings he should start to write more draft stuff. For those of you who don't know; Goose bases his mock's/Top 100 off of information he gets from talking to scouting department around the NFL; not from watching tape. Usually he has the most accurate of teh media mocks, and he almost always neails the Top 10 picks. He may be teh best draft expert today.

Edit: If a mod could fix Gosselin's name please that would be great.

I like the top 10. Jarrett is the only one I dont agree 100% with.

Kastofsna, what does your top 10 look like, since Gosselin's is "not very good?"

I'm looking forward to Gosselin's first mock, which I don't think has been
published yet ?
He is one of the most accurate at predicting who drafts who and

Good read about Hampton

I'm interesetd in this guy, everything I've read says he as the tools to make it.

Goose is the best at this kind of stuff, mixing story type peices then switching it up the next day with a mock or something; and it's all free.

I was shocked when I saw that Michael Bush was the #10 RB?!?!?! What did I miss? I think he's got to be at least in the top 5 RBs. Gattis and Johnson should also definately be on there. And I think Steve Smith should be higher.

Texans go d-line in the 1st round for the 3rd consecutive draft.

No sleepers in the 1st round. They are who we thought they were.

Matt Millen has struggled with top-10 picks in his stint as general manager of the Lions. Peterson would be a safe and popular choice. Detroit had success using first-round picks on Oklahoma runners Steve Owens (1970) and Billy Sims (1980).
3. Cleveland Calvin Johnson WR Georgia Tech
4. Tampa Bay Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame
5. Arizona Joe Thomas OT Wisconsin
6. Washington Gaines Adams DE Clemson

12. Buffalo Marshawn Lynch RB California
13. St. Louis Darrelle Revis CB Pittsburgh
14. Carolina Patrick Willis LB Mississippi
15. Pittsburgh Adam Carriker DE Nebraska
Carriker is the prototypical defensive end for a 3-4 scheme. But his true value lies is his versatility. With his size (6-6, 296), he can line up at any of the four positions along the defensive line.
16. Green Bay Ted Ginn Jr. WR Ohio State
17. Jacksonville Jarvis Moss DE Florida
18. Cincinnati Reggie Nelson S Florida
19. Tennessee Robert Meachem WR Tennessee
20. N.Y. Giants Levi Brown OT Penn State
21. Denver Lawrence Timmons LB Florida State
22. Dallas Dwayne Bowe WR LSU
With two starting wide receivers in their 30s, the Cowboys need a young player to build a future downfield passing game for Tony Romo. Bowe is a physical receiver in the Michael Irvin mold.
23. Kansas City Justin Harrell DT Tennessee
24. New England Jon Beason LB Miami
25. N.Y. Jets Aaron Ross CB Texas
26. Philadelphia Chris Houston CB Arkansas
27. New Orleans Dwayne Jarrett WR Southern California
28. New England Michael Griffin S Texas
29. Baltimore Joe Staley OT Central Michigan
30. San Diego Anthony Gonzalez WR Ohio State
31. Chicago Paul Posluszny LB Penn State
32. Indianapolis Greg Olsen TE Miami
I highlited two that seem to be moving up versus being drafted in the second round so i would consider them a reach because of other players not drafred. Meaning players drafted that are not BPA versus BPAw/Need.

Amobi Okoye is an intriguing pick.

Doesn't make me jump up and down, but it definitely could turn into a gold star choice.

Revis, Nelson and Brown are guys that I would consider if we dpn't go for Okoye.

FOUR consecutive years if you include the debacle that was the jason babin trade (babin, travis johnson, mario ... okoye?). our last three drafts is simply more than enough for me to want to address any other position but the d-line. our eldest first rounder is babin who only has 3 years as a pro (and only one as a DE), so we're far from screaming bust about the whole unit when it's that young. it's time to work on the rest of the team.

Very interesting that he does not have Kalil going in the first round. Chris Houston at 26.

I hope we can find a trade partner in the early to mid 20's and pick up a second rounder to go after Kalil. If somehow we could swing those two guys it would be a boondoggle of epic proportions. Very unlikely, but I dare to dream because I am silly like that.

I definately can live with Amobi Okoye he should be a run stuffing Tackle to start. He is only 20 so his upside is his greatest strength.

Griffin went #26 in scouts.com mock. Draftdaddy.com's mock also has Gonzalez going to the Chargers in the 1st. Again, not what one would call sleeper picks in the 1st round. Like a John McCargo last year, Chris Spencer in '05, or Jason Babin in '04.

run stuffing will likely be his big weakness early in his career. The big over sized NFL Guards will likely be able to push him around in the run game till he gets a bit bigger. His interior pass rushing skills will be his strength.

I'd much rather have Okoye than Branch .

I can see Okoye being a solid 315 in a couple of years .

I can see Branch looking like TJ's much bigger brother .
