Comment: The Chiefs have two glaring needs – offensive tackle and defensive end with the departure of Pro Bowl pass rusher Jared Allen. If they wait on the offensive tackle, they miss out. Six could go in the first round.
It's a pipe dream to think one of these OLT guys will fall to the eighteen.

Quote:
A couple of other key areas to watch for trades later today include the ‘amen corner’ picks in the low teens. Figure there are going to be 3-4 quality OTs on the board at that time with Kansas City, Houston and Philadelphia sitting at 17-18-19 and all very much interested in the position. If those teams stay where they are they still may get a shot at second-tier OTs like Chris Williams of Vanderbilt or Boston College’s Gosder Cherilus, but they’ll miss out on the likes of Virginia’s Branden Albert, Ryan Clady of Boston College and Pitt’s Jeff Otah. Both Kansas City and Philadelphia, though, appear to be well-armed to move up into the 10-11 range. The Chiefs have 13 picks after trading DE Jared Allen to Minnesota, while Philadelphia currently has 11 and should have another once the day is done with CB Lito Sheppard expected to be dealt (see below).

So here are a couple of deals that make just a bit of sense. On the other hand, New Orleans trades the 10th pick to Philadelphia for the 19th pick and Sheppard; then with the 19th pick the Saints take North Carolina DT Kentwan Balmer, in the process addressing two of their major needs. Meanwhile, the Eagles take Virginia’s Albert with the 10th pick. Then KC trades third and 5th round picks to Buffalo to swap the 11th and 17th picks. With the 11th pick, the Chiefs get Clady, while the Bills take Michigan State WR Devin Thomas with 17th pick. And while were on a role, we wouldn’t be shocked at that moment if Denver, with both Clady and Albert off the board, sent the 12th pick to Dallas for the 22nd pick and some later selections. At #12 the Cowboys grab Tennessee State CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Ouch. Thats not a good position for us. Man, I am not sure how stoked I would be over a 1st round RB.

I would SERIOUSLY try to trade down in this scenario. Pitt needs a RB to compliment FAST Willie Parker. Maybe they would like their pick of Mendenhall, Stewart, and Jones. All we ask is their 2nd which is pretty much a third since its so low afterall.

Maybe Atlanta wants to trade back into the first round and grab Chad Henne before he gets snapped up. Those 2 second rounders and a third would be awfully nice to have.

Man I would not like that at all.

I am all about the big uglies ... I mean one of these years one will be drafted early instead of keep treading water.

real interesting. glad to see Hardy in the first round, simply because he HAS to go first round. best WR in the draft, would be a shame. of course i'd get over that shame if Miami took him at #32.

I think the shocker is Chris Williams at #5. This mock doesn't make the Texans pick at #18 too appealing to a team wanting to trade up unless they want a rb in an already deep rb draft. I like the safety pick of Tyrell Johnson over Phillips to the Giants. Some of the pay draft sites and publications that I have/subscribe to have him rated higher than Phillips.

Interesting tonight on NFLn's pre draft mock...CC and Lombardi had Phillips going to the bucs (Lumbardi had the final 16)....Makes sense...age at the coners and he doen't have to start right way... Green Bay and the bucs are both good situations for Phillips if he is going to keep the streak alive. Play the slot in the nickle...tamapa 2.

Comment: Ellis doesn't fit the 3-4 defensive scheme of the Patriots, but his arrival would give them the option of playing some 4-3. He's the best defensive player on the board, and coach Bill Belichick rarely passes up value.
O.K. I know he is the draft guru gaud....but doesn't that statement strike anyone besides me as odd....drafting a three technique DT into 3-4 team ? I know Willlford's contract is coming up....smoke....smoke...smoke....they're tring to get the Natti to bite. Big Drop off at Dt once Elllis goes off the board.

No what the wolf in New Englnd wouldn't pass up is a lock like Richard Seymore...Ellis ain't that in 3-4.

Gosselins best mock but yet flawed at least in Stewarts case. either he is a top 10 pick or he isn't. the surgery was a success & he will be fully recovered by the beginning of the season. not only that he is a far better fit for the Texans system over Mendenhall

Mendenhall is the best RB in this draft IMO. I would be happy with him or Stewert. We could finally have our franchise RB. One less need on a team with still several needs. There will still be opportunities for us to add talent before the season starts.

Default Re: Gosselin's final mock

In all due respect, gonna have to disagree with 3 of the old Mock-Draft-Kings
first 4 picks. Dorsey is at the top of the Rams Board, and althought DE is a bigger need, the Rams will move Carriker back to DE to take their top-rated player. And ATL will therefor take QB Ryan. The Chiefs may very well draft OLineman at #5, but nore likely to be Clady, Albert, or Otah than Chris Williams IMO. But we shall see in a few hours if the Gosselins insider info is still as accurate as in past years ?

Yea, but remember "backs are a dime a dozen", especially with Denver Broncos and their alumni.
I dunno, what's the chance of the Texans "overdrafting" a player here like
LT Sam Baker or even DE Groves ?

I don't want Baker either. I'd rather see them reach for Duane Brown than draft Baker. I'm confident that Rick Smith won't reach. He seems too well prepared and savy.
