With the 35th pick the Philadelphia Eagles select Anttaj Hawthorne DT U of Wisconsin.
No one knows if Corey Simon will be retained. If he is, fine, but there are age and health questions with Hollis Thomas and Paul Grasmanis. I feel Hawthorne is good vaule here.

With the 36th pick, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Troy Williamson, WR, South Carolina...

With an aging, subpar receiving core the addition of Troy Williamson, who was one of the most prolific receivers in college despite playing in a run-heavy offense, will infuse some more youth into the group and make a great compliment to Michael Clayton, who the Bucs drafted in 04...

The Texans select 6' 7" 290 pound Chris Canty, DE, Virginia. Huge framed run stopping specialist that played the 3-4 end in College, has good pass rushing skills and isn't a classic 4-3 end because he is a bit of a Tackle/End tweener. Has had injury concerns or would be a first round pick. Ideal fit for the Texans if his knee is sound. We will likely find out some news at the combine.

The Bears select 6-5 290lbs OT Khalif Barnes out of Washington.


Tough decision.. I know I wanted to draft Oline unless someone fell to me that I just couldnt pass up.. but It was hard to pick between Barnes, Britt, Terry, Marcus Johnson, or C.J. Brooks. In the end, I felt Barnes was the safest pick... though C.J. Brooks was a very close second.

With the 40th pick, the New Orleans Saints select Virginia LB Darryl Blackstock (6'4" 240)

The Saints went defense again, hoping the pass rushing Blackstock (known as "Sackstock" in HS) can provide speed and aggressiveness to their 32nd overall ranked defense. With Carlos Rogers and Daryl Blackstock hopefully working into starter roles early in the season, the Saints defense looks to make a huge turnaround by the end of the year.

The Rams select ILB Channing Crowder (6'3", 245 lbs, 4.6)

Strengths: Has been extremely productive since day one of his true freshman year...Great athlete...Very good size and speed...Tough and physical...Aggressive...Active and makes plays all over the field...Has excellent instincts...Solid tackler...Has not yet reached his full potential.

Weaknesses: Durability might be a concern because he has had a couple of knee injuries and then suffered torn ligaments in his right foot as a sophomore...Has only played major college football for two seasons so lack of experience may be a concern...Needs to get stronger...May have some character concerns.

Notes: Only a true sophomore eligibility-wise but was able to enter the 2005 NFL Draft because he has been out of high school for three years after delaying enrollment to rehab a knee injury...Crowder supposedly considered entering the '04 Draft after Maurice Clarett initially won his court case so the NFL was on his mind...Was real close to Ron Zook, who he considers a father figure, so his firing may have been a factor in pushing Crowder to go pro.

Since Fiddy has gone off line & hasn't read my PM yet, I'm going to post the trade between Beerlover & myself on here so that everyone knows.

The Hottoddie Lions trade the #41 pick to the Beerlover Jaguars for the #52 & #87 picks. Good luck Beerlover.

Jack "beerlover" Del Rio is proud to anounce a trade has been consumated with Lions GM Hottoddie in exchange for the 41st selection the Jaguars trade away both the 2nd (#52) and 3rd (#87) picks.

With the 41st pick the Jacksonville Jaguars select Corey Webster CB, LSU. Graded out as a 1st round talent & the last of the big CB's available the opportunity to strengthen the secondary, along with continued contract talks with Darius convinced the ogranization the cost was well worth the move. Corey gives the Jaguars a shutdown corner, he has all the tools, good speed, size, tackling & leaping ability plus exceptionally long reach which should come in useful against some of the big young WR's like AJ of the Texans & Roy Williams of the Lions just to name a couple.

The Dallas Cowboys select Odell Thurman LB form the University of Georgia. This is a pick the help with the the transsion to the 3-4 defense (damn I'd wish they just annouce if they are going to a 3-4 or not, make this alot easier) At 6'1" and 235 pounds, Odell may be a bit slight, but he is more than makes up for it with his physical play. A superb tackler, and sble to cover from sideline ot sideline, Thurman should quickly find a home with the starting linebacker corps.

Straight from the commish Fiddy we have the selection for swtbound07 via beerlover, the NY Giants select-

ADAM TERRY, OT SYRACUSE 6'-9" 324 LBS

Manning is getting killed plus Terry excells at run blocking. The Giants may address this #1 need via F/A but if they don't and want to help Eli stay healthy and prosper in the league he needs a franchise tackle. The Giants could have also chosen one of the interior linebackers left but NFL tackles don't grow on trees, they grow up in Queensbury NY & ideal fit for the G-MEN.

With the next pick, the Cardinal pick:
Guard Chris Kemoeatu 6-4, 335 Utah

this will shore up the offensive line woes.

Default With the 45th pick...

With the 45th pick the Carolina Panthers select:
Marcus Johnson OT Ole Miss



For the Panthers this pick came down to two players who made strong showings at the Senior Bowl - Marcus Johnson (OT) and Bryant McFadden (CB). After passing on an offensive lineman in the first round the selection of this big tackle/guard tweener fills probably the Panthers biggest need. He has great size and solid fundamentals and moved up the board after having dominant week of Senior Bowl practices.

Jordan Gross's transition to left tackle went smoothly but that was about the only smooth aspect of Carolina's offensive line last year. Losses in free agency followed by injuries (and injuries and injuries) forced the line into a constant state of flux. Once they got a healthy running back out there the running game was solid and pass protection was adequate all year, but the current line simply needs more talent. Johnson is being brought in to help solidify the right side. Although he has the most experience at guard, he will be expected to compete for the right tackle position.

With the 46th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select...



Chris Henry, WR, West Virginia

Height: 6-5
Weight: 195

The Chiefs passed on Kevin Burnett due to injury concerns. So they look to go offense with Henry. The Chiefs know that Henry can become an excellent wide out and potential game changer, something they have lacked at the wide reciever position for some time. With an already loaded KC offense, Henry will be allowed to mature and the Chiefs can use his size and speed to take advantage of oppossing defenses already concerned about Priest Holmes and Tony Gonzales.

The Texans select Demarcus Ware LB 6-4, 245 Troy State. With Ware the Texans now have a full set of young outside linebackers to deploy for the future. Peek, Babin, and Ware will give Wong a chance to work into Foreman's inside slot and give us depth at the most critical position in the 3-4 defense. In my imaginary scheme Ware will take Peek's place as situational pass rusher his first year on the team while contributing on special teams. 4.51 speed with a vertical of 38 1/2 inches are reported by the team. We will see at the Combine.

The Cincinatti Bengals have traded their 2nd Round pick (48th Overall) to the Buffalo Bills for their 2nd (55th Overall) and 3rd Round (86th Overall) picks. Since I own both teams I cleared the trade with Fiddy first.

Default The 48th Pick...

With the 48th Pick in the 2005 NFL Draft the Buffalo Bills select ...

Logan Mankins OG Fresno State 6'4 320lbs



The Bills were without a first round pick this year due to the trade in last year's draft. They needed a quality player with their second round pick, and couldn't afford to sit idle at the 55th pick. With the recent run on quality offensive linemen they initiated a trade to the 48th pick to obtain who they perceive as one of the better guards in this draft. Mankins plays with a mean streak, and he always gives you 100%. He's agressive, tough, strong, and has good feet since he spent alot of time playing OT in college. The Bills need a tough interior lineman like Mankins, and he'll have a chance to compete for a starting spot on this team. With Baas, Brown, and Johnson off the board the Bills were left to choose the better player between Mankins and Evan Mathis (Alabama). Mathis' only drawbacks were that he needed to improve his pass protection and his size. Bledsoe needs all the time he can get back in the pocket, and thus the decision to take Mankins was a little easier.
