With the 18th pick, The SeaHawks will take RB Cedric Benson of Texas U.


Sadly, Shawn Alexander has made his intentions quite clear about going down to Miami. With a possible major cap investment, and needing to retain players like Hassleback and others, Benson would make a excellent replacement instead of leaving a vaccuum in this area. Other choices would have been DE Cody, and LB Channing Crowder, but with the power of this back still being on the board, the seahawks had to make the move. We are quite proud to have a dominating athlete like Benson.

The Steelers have traded their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round pick to the Rams for their 1st round pick. The Steelers have selected Carnell "Cadillac" Williams with their first round pick. With Jerome Bettis having just finished his 12th season and contemplating retirement and Duce Staley's problem with injuries in the past, RB is one position that needs immediate attention. The Steelers will no longer be riding the bus, they just bought a Cadillac.

The Cowbots are pleased to select Justin Miller Corner back from Clemson University.

Even though Newman had a good fiish to the season, the 'Boys still need help in the secondary; and if Pete Hunter returns from injury don't be surprised if the coaching staff moves him to FS. Leaving Roy Williams to do waht he does best, play up in the box and punish people.

Jack "beerlover" Del Rio once again addressing need for defensive line support convinces James "Shaq" Harris, who overuled "beerlover" last draft (wanted Udeze or Will Smith & went with Reggie Williams) that the Jaq's still have a choice between College Football's three most dominate ends in David Pollack, Erasmus James & Dan Cody. The Jaguars selection between these three reflects not just their future but the player with the most ability, mental toughness & most prepared to enter the NFL and contribute to the Jacksonville Jaguar front of Stroud & Henderson in 2005.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are happy to announce with the 21st pick Dan Cody out of the University of Oklahoma. Dan is a match for the Jaguars biggest need- a dominant pass rushing end, he has the largest frame of the premier lineman at 6'5" with room to add more muscle & weight 270lbs without losing a top 40 speed of 4.58 sec. Dan Cody also could drop back off the line & play spinner or spy like a OLB does in a 3-4 optomizing his playmaking skills (played 7 different positions during his high school career, including safety, quarterback, fullback and tight end).

Dan also has the experience coming from a major football program under Bob Stoops and his staff along with 5 years of dealing & overcoming personal issues showing his senior season that he has matured & will be ready to immediately impact & start for the Jaguars.

Rimington award winning David Baas, Center/Guard, Michigan, is the pick for the Texans. I project him to play Center where he has had starting experience at Michigan before moving to Guard. Steve McKinney's days are numbered. I wanted a defender (namely defensive lineman) here and almost took one. I just do not feel good about the Defensive Tackle value in the first round and Baas will be a ten year starter here, so that pushed me to take one of the top two interior linemen in this draft class. I picked Baas over Brown due to attitude, smarts, desire, and his fundamentally sound blocking techniques. Brown has a few question marks about his desire and his professionalism, or I would have selected him. Baas plays with a chip on his shoulder, and injects some attitude into our offense.

I wanted to see what I could do with 3 top-50 picks (after my trades), and Center was one of my priorities. After doing as much research as I could, I figured there was no sense in picking up a Center in the 3rd round or so that is no better than the one we have currently (line quality drops off fast in this draft). Bass has great size (6'-5" 330), can play both Guard and Center, and plays with a mean streak. One of the things I think we need is some fire and attitude in our offense. Baas gives us plenty of both and Michigan has produced plenty of top caliber linemen over the years. McKinney will be paid like a top-10 Center soon and will be able to fight Zach Weigert for the Right Guard position with this move. There are probably a few football players on the board that may have more name value or are sexier picks but this resolves one of our biggest interior needs. This move makes Dom Davis a more productive back, gives David Carr more line stability and hopefully an actual pocket to step into in order to locate Andre Johnson and Company.

With an abundance of running backs available this offseason (Shaun Alexander, Edgerrin James, Lamont Jordan, Travis Henry, Derrick Blaylock, Anthony Thomas, Chester Taylor, Jesse Chatman, Arlen Harris) the Cardinals feel that they have the leverage to not offer Emmit Smith an extended contract and can even afford to pass up a tempting target, Cedric Benson. Their main focus going into this 1st round was a good QB to backup McCown and to challenge him possibley for a starting slot. Once the 2 best QB's on the Cardinals board were taken, they felt it best to trade down and take the best player at one of 2 positions that many other teams had far to low on their draft boards. By Trading down and picking up 2 extra 1st day picks in a draft that is solid in defensive players, The Cardinals have leverage in making deals to bring in offensive star players such as Randy Moss or Travis Henry in possible trades. The Cardinals were surprised when at the #24 spot the best CB in the draft fell right in their lap, Brandon Browner CB 6-4, 205 Oregon State. Browner will mature behind a defense ranked 12th in the league last year in the nickel spot until he grasped the starting spot and never look back.

In an effort to bolster a critical need on defense, which was heavily explioted during the past two early playoff exits, and improve their overall interior pass rush:

With the 25th pick in the 2005 HoustonTexans.com NFL Mock Draft, The Denver Broncos select:

Jets select Alex Smith TE 6-5, 255 Stanford

Two major needs are TE and CB, but with Heimerdinger (sp) coming in, and his utilization of the TE position, I went that direction.

The Falcons select: Mark Clayton, WR, OU

I was torn between a couple, but thought that Vick needs more weapons passing for this team to do anything. The defense had a great year but Vick, to mature as a passer, needs WR. Crumpler had a great year but Price and Jenkins were disappointments. With 3 WR, a pro bowl TE and the DVD running offense, the Falcons can be unstoppable next year in the NFC.

With the 29th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft the Indianapolis Colts select:

Travis Johnson - Defensive Tackle - Florida State University




The Colts are among the worst teams in the NFL against the run. Why not take the premier defender from the best run defense in college football. That Travis was the highest rated player regardless of position left on my board made this pick all the sweeter.

The Rams have the 30th pick as a result of a trade with the Steelers.

Before the Rams (8-8) can focus on its draft or free agent targets, they must get an idea of who is going to return from this season’s roster. They have 14 unrestricted free agents this off-season, most notably LT Orlando Pace. The Rams designated Pace as their franchise player the last 2 years. This year one of 3 things will happen:

- They will let him go (and have lots of money in FA);
- They will franchise him (and they will have a starting LT, but no money for FA); or
- They will sign him (and have a LT and some money for FA).

The Rams can’t hope to replace a veteran #1 overall pick with a later rookie pick, but may not have to. Time will tell.

Other positions also need to be addressed. Significant contributors DE Bryce Fisher (UFA); LB Tommy Polley (UFA); LB Trev Faulk (RFA); FS Antuan Edwards (UFA); S Aeneas Williams; S Rich Cody; OG Tom Nutten (UFA); OG Chris Dishman (UFA); TE Cameron Cleeland (UFA) all could be gone.

http://www.stlouisrams.com/article/47930/

In addition, by increasing the general talent level and depth on the defensive side of the ball, they have a chance for an immediate improvement to one of the league’s worst special teams units.

When a team is 8-8 in the NFC, they aren't one player away from the Superbowl. The Rams do have a young, proven QB and a top young RB, as well as key veterans.

With it's first of six first day picks (4 in the real draft), the Rams select Matt Roth (6'3" -263 lbs) Senior DE from Iowa.

Matt Roth - "Ranked second in the Big Ten in QB sacks per game (0.88), tied for second in forced fumbles (four) and ranked fifth in tackles for loss per game (1.2) . . . ranked 13th in the nation in sacks per game and 26th nationally in forced fumbles . . . moved from linebacker to end in fall practice prior to 2002 season . . . only true freshman to play for Iowa during 2001 season."

With the 31 pick the Philadelphia Eagles select Elton Brown OG U of Va.
Guard Jermane Mayberry is a UFA and also missed a few games from injuries the past two years. At his age of 33 and 9yrs. in the pits, the Eagles will not offer him big money to stay.
Shawn Andrews will take over for Jon Runyan soon. With Andrews and Brown on the right side, Hicks and Thomas on the left, Fraley at Center,and Steve Sciullo, and Trey Darilek backing up, the line is set with young players for years to come.

With the final pick of the 1st round, the Patriots sellect WR Roddy White of U.A.B. This pick final gives the Pats a WR who breaks the 6 foot barrier. Since the Patriots could take anyone and plug them into their system, if they have the desire and this guy does. While they do have depth, the Pats recievers are older than dirt in football year with the exception to Givens and Branch.

Wow, this is an easy pick. 49ers select David Pollack. Whiting and Engleberger aren't exactly dominant and Pollack is by far the BPA. Hopefully, with more pressure coming from the outside, the corners won't stink it up this year.

BTW, how does Pollack slip this far?
