Are you saying those players would be available in those rounds or are those your top 5 picks for our first pick?

not enough defense...Houston is not a value pick in the third round. Assuming it is not a serious injury Britt will not drop 2 rounds. The Johnson and Baas picks, given current informataion, will not be available at the time they are being projected at.

I noticed there was only one defensive player after I wrote it.

Britt was a low 2nd-third rounder to start with. What makes you think he wont drop a round for a broken leg? Ever heard of Glenn Earl?

And you say Johnson and Bass wont be available where we pick, like youve seen a early edition of the april draft. Im pretty sure we have a chance at getting both of these players. And this is who I would like to hear called on draft day. Which was the point of this thread.

I like those picks with the exception of Patterson. I might take Castillo over Patterson, or even wait till the second day to pick up Bryant out of Alabama. I like the Matt Jones pick, but I'm not sure he'd go in the 4th. He has done pretty well at WR during the practices though. Sounds like Mitchell's stock is rising if he can play as an OLB too. If we could get him in the 3rd he'd be a nice pick up. Gettin Baas in the 2nd could be a steal too.

1. Anttaj Hawthorne

3. Eric Shelton
4. Jason Brown
5. Sione Pouha (depends on who is available.. but Pouha is a safe choice in the 4th.. but we may be able to get Means or Bryant or even Castillo in the 4th.. or pick up Pouha in the fifth or sixth.)

I was thinking of picking Mitchell in the 3rd as well, but from what I've seen, he's ranked as a 2nd rounder...

Sorry...I did not mean to ruin your dreams, but my opinion is that Johnson is one of the two or three best defenders in the draft and he probably won't make it to thirteen. If Johnson does I would love to have him. Baas is ranked to be drafted late first to early 2nd so he is 50/50 to be there. IMO, there are at least 8 RBs better than Houston so we will just disagree. Britt will have to wait on the medical evaluation of the injury, but breaks tend to drop players less than tendon, ACLs, MCLS, etc. Dressen has good hands, but I am not sure of his blocking nor have a guess where he will come of board.

BTW, projecting (guessing) who will be availble when is a part of the game anytime there are 5 "dream" name just stuck on a post.

My 5th rounder Roscoe Parrish or Darren Sproles as a return man that can bring it home. Is Jeremy Bloom eligible he returns kicks like a downhill ski racer.

Thats cool. But as you saw in last years draft, and previous years, LB's dont go as early as CB's. And 2 CB's and a safety were taken before ILB Vilma. But like you said, if he makes it to 13 I would love to have him.
