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

Default Pack takes Rolle



The Packers take Antrel Rolle CB out of Miami Fl with the 8th pick aquired from the Arizona Cardinals. Last years first round pick CB Ahmad Carroll hasn't been anything special so Rolle was brought in to start along with Al Harris and to move Carroll to the nickel/dime package. The Packers still need an OLB and saftey opposite Sharper to get their defense to where it needs to be, but Rolle was the right fit to really upgrade the defense and secondary immediately.

Antrel Rolle
Position- CB
College- Miami Fl
Height- 6'1
Weight- 202
40 Time- 4.45

The Redskins with the 9th pick in the 2005 NFL draft take Braylon Edwards from Michigan. One of the top playmaking recievers falls to #9 and the Redskins can not pass up the opportunity since their recieving corp has not played to expectations. The Skin's could have gone for a DE or a CB but Edwards is too hard to pass up.

Braylon Edwards
Position: Wide Reciever
College: Michigan
Height:6-3
Weight: 208

With the 10th pick in the 2005 NFL draft, the Detroit Lions select Justin Tuck DE/OLB Notre Dame.

There's always a mystery player that shoots up the board out of nowhere, & this year will be no exception. The Lions need a pure speed rusher on the DL to replace Cory Redding. With James Hall on the right side, Tuck on the left side, & Shaun Rogers on the inside, Detroit should have one of the very best DL's in the NFL.

Tuck is 6'5" 261lbs. & has the frame to add another 10-20lbs., without losing his speed & quickness. He runs a 4.56 40 yard dash & is a terror on pass rushes. He should have no problems getting around the TE & his quickness will allow him to run around most OL. He's got several very effective pass rushing moves & just needs to refine his techniques. He added 15 pounds of muscle from his sophmore year to his junior year (He's actually a senior, but ND lists him as a junior) He's stronger than his 261lbs would suggest & when he adds another 10-20 lbs of muscle he should be unbeatable. He reminds me of Jevon Kearse.

He'll have to be used as a situational pass rusher at first, but will eventually take over as the starter. I didn't plan on taking him this high, but no one seems to want to make a trade & I felt he's too good to wait until the 2nd round to see if he's still on the board. So, there you go.

With the 11th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft; the Dallas Cowboys are pleased to select Shawne Merriman, a junior DE/OLB from the University of Maryland.

With the Cowboys leaning toward runnig the 3-4 next year, or atleast a mix of 3-4 and 4-3, the despratly need personal that can rush the passer. Shawne fills this role in either scheme. In the 4-3, he will play DE; and in the 3-4 he will play OLB.

Merriman is a physical freak at 6-4, 245 pounds with a 41 inch vertical. Shawne is an exceptional pass rusher, able to beat most OT with just his athleticism; and after some coaching on technique should be a force off the edge. An added bonus is that Merriman has experience dropping into coverage; saomething the Cowboys will ask him to do as a rookie.

The orgainization thought about taking one of the CB, but with the recent rule changes; the value of taking a CB in early had fallen.

The 2nd trade of the Draft:
Fiddy Vikings have sent their 1st and 2nd round picks to the Vinny Texans for the 13th overall pick.

The Vikings have traded up because they were afraid that someone else would trade up to take the 2nd best CB in the draft, Adam "Pac-Man" Jones. We have already missed out on Thomas Davis and Antrel Rolle. Our problem has been defense and if Moss isnt traded for defense, then Pac-Man and Winfield form a nice duo at the CB positions.

The Vikings have selected CB Adam "Pac-Man" Jones out of West Virgina with the 13th overall selection.

With the 14th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft the Carolina Panthers select Heath Miller TE Virginia.



In the "Age of the Tight End" Heath Miller is the next in a line of young TE's. The 'new' pass rules have made it more difficult to cover the big guys coming off the line and Miller should have no problem in that area. May still have some work to do to improve his blocking against NFL players. This selection will add a new dimension to the Panthers offense.

The Panthers were not excited to see two guys they liked taken at 12 and 13. I tried to talk myself into Elton Brown this high to continue the rebuilding of the o-line or that the RB durability questions were enough to pick up one of the top RB's still out there, but in the end the deciding factor was that Miller will definitely be able to come in and make an impact on offense as a rookie.

With the 15th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft the Kansas City Chiefs select Marlin Jackson, cornerback Michigan.



Marlin Jackson
Position- CB
College- Michigan
Height- 6'1
Weight- 196
40 Time- 4.40

The Chiefs need defense, and the whole league knows it. They tried bringing in Gunther Cunningham last offseason, but he needs some tools to work with.
Given that, and the emergence of defensive end Jared Allen to provide some pass rush, the Chiefs look to upgrade their pass coverage. Marlin Jackson is their man. After playing some safety and corner at Michigan, he was moved back to corner for his Senior season where he was solid, if not spectacular. He has played against top level competition and comes with a great deal of experience. Kansas City takes a step towards building a defense to complement their top flight offense.

With the 16th pick in the draft, the New Orleans Saints select:

Carlos Rogers, CB Auburn



Height: 6'1"
Weight: 194
40 Time: 4.37

The Saints would have liked to trade down, but with teams coming up that need a corner the GM was satisfied staying at 16 as well. Rogers has good speed and brings a physical presence to a defense that ranked 32nd overall in 2004.

With the 18th Pick in the NFL Draft the Bengals select:

Marcus Spears DE, LSU



Height: 6'4
Weight: 297lbs
40-yd: 4.80

The Bengals are in desperate need of a dominant force on the defensive line. Their more pressing need is DT, but there really wasn't a DT that I thought was worth a pick this high. Spears has the added versatility to play either DE or DT. He can give an added pass rush from the inside, and he's very good at stopping the run. He is among the best athletes you'll find at his size since he was once a TE at LSU. I considered trading the 18th pick in order to move down a few slots but with teams such as Houston looming who could really use young talent on the DLine I felt it best to get Spears while I could.
