With the 69th pick in the draft, the Detroit Lions select Robert McCune ILB from Louisville.

While LB isn't a pressing need, I feel that McCune is such a great athlete & physical specimen, that I couldn't take the chance he might get picked before my next pick.

He's got exceptional speed for a MLB (4.42 40 yard dash), is very strong, very athletic, & makes plays all over the field. He's a little undersized (height) at 6'0" 245lbs. & his age has some people concerned. However, with his military background & the discipline that has been instilled in him, he should be able to be very productive for many years to come. Besides, you can't teach speed.

While still very productive, Earl Holmes will be 32 y/o before the season begins. He's still got another year or two in him & will provide an excellent tutor for McCune to learn from.

With a front line of Hall, Rogers, & Justin Tuck, & a linebacking crew of Lehman, McCune, & Davis, the Lion's defense is starting to look as talented as their offense.

Everyone better look out for the Lions in the next couple of years.

With the 70th pick the Dolphins select Michael Munoz, OT, Tennessee.

Its been a while since the Dolphins selected and new coach Nick Saban is steamed that because of AJ Feeley the Dolphins lost the 2nd round selection.
Still hoping to pick up a RB in free-agency, the Dolpins select Michael Munoz, son of the great Anthony Munoz.

Showing potential and tremendous size, the Dolphins hope to develop the young Munoz into a solid player.

With the 71st pick, the Buccaneers select Mike Patterson, DT, USC...

This was a tough decision, as the Bucs have plenty of needs...The biggest debate I had was between Patterson and Odell Thurman, but in the end, the need to find Warren Sapp's replacement was too large, and what better way to fill in his spot then with a player nicknamed "Baby Sapp"...

The Raiders have already selected 2 players with great upside with Davis and Thorpe. The most pressing need left is a powerful back to pound the ball and open up the passing game.

The Oakland Raiders are pleased to select Cedric Houston, RB, Tennesse
The Raiders were hoping for E. Shelton but are happy with Houston. At 6'0 220 w/4.5 speed Houston has the power to run north/south and the speed to secure the corner. Has had some injuries but always overcomes them. He is a tough runner with a good burst and good vision. Gets his pads low and does not try to avoid contact. has the frame to add 10 pounds of muscle without sacrificing speed. Many scouts believe he will be better in the pros after some good conditioning in a NFL program.

beelover selects for the NY Giants-

MIKE NUGENT PK 5-10, 170 OHIO STATE









the NY Giants are wasting no time after a serious case of dry heaves hoping upon hope that this little apple of their dreams would still be available when they selected in 3rd rd. other than LT & protection for Manning (Adam Terry) or WLB (free agency) the most obvious, glaring need is a sure footed kicker that can excell in cold weather, has the temperment to handle the pressure of NY & big game situations and a strong 50+ yard foot with accuracy.

With so many good players still available I'm beginning to think that this draft is pretty deep. It does last a few "super stars" to vault it into one of the better drafts, but the depth at several positions in this draft make me believe that isn't as bad a most think. With that being said the Cardinals have shored up their RB problem through Free Agency (with Alexander, Jordan, or Henry etc...) and have address the line with one of the premiere guards in the draft. They brought in a spectacular prospect in the 2nd round to learn the system so with the 3rd round they can now focus on best player available. The Cardinals will add Bill Swancutt DE 6-4, 260 Oregon State to their 12th ranked defense to bolster the either the LLB spot or challenge Zelner for the DE position. Many on the staff feel Swancutt can be a great LB with his ability to get to the ball and make interceptions if possible.

The Eagles select Marion Barber rb Minn.
I could not decide between Selton and Barber and I get them both! Eagles have rotated three rbs before, can do in again. Westbrook is a rfa this year, and will be a ufa next year if the Eagles can't get a deal done with him. Barber is insurance.

Default titans

The Titans select Bryant McFadden CB Florida State 6'0' 180

McFadden is a tall thin corner. He does not have great straight ahead speed, but has exception quickness. He has solid technique and plays physical despite being on the thin side. with Samari Rolle most likely leaving, mcFadden could get a chance to contribute really. The titans were really happy to see McFadden at the point of the third round.

With the 79th pick the Carolina Panthers select Josh Bullocks S Nebraska.



Bullocks will be brought in to compete for the starting Free Safety spot for the Panthers. He is excellent in coverage with knack for being around the ball. He is a good size body with decent speed and a solid tackler. He will need to work on his run-support from the safety position.

With the 80th pick, the Vikings select Donte Nicholson, S, Oklahoma. We love that he is available and unlike our first pick, Pac-Man Jones, he can sit and learn behind Chavos and Russell. A year after the two safeties combined for 17 INTs, they dropped to 2 INTs. Nicholson will be brought in for competition at first, but by his second year we hope he challenges for a starting spot.

With the 81st pick, Detroit selects James Butler FS from Georgia Tech.

NFL Draft Countdown

Strengths: Very smart...Good size and a solid frame...A leader and hard worker...Excels in coverage as well as run support...A playmaker...Still has a lot of potential.

Weaknesses: Doesn't have a lot of starting experience...Good, not great speed...Has to get stronger...Raw and has a ways to go in terms of technique.

Notes: All of his weaknesses can be corrected and he is the type of guy who will put in the time to improve...Very good prospect who still has a lot of upside.

- Scott Wright


NFL Fans.com

Pros: Good size, strong and athletic, has great upside.

Cons: Needs to work on the basics of the position more, just needs game experience and good coaching, has room to improve.

With the 82nd pick in the NFL draft, the New Orleans Saints select S Jammal Brimmer, UNLV. (6'1", 215, 4.6 40)

Some scouts feel he will drop, but this is the same guy that was mentioned in the same sentences as "first rounder" if he had come out last season. While his 40 time isn't amazing and he needs to work on his cover skills, he brings a physical presence and will hopefully be able to start within a year along with the other defensive picks Carlos Rogers and Darryl Blackstock.

With the 83rd pick in the NFL Draft the Cincinatti Bengals select Boomer Grigsby MLB Illinois State 6'1 241 4.47



With Jammal Brimmer gone, the Bengals turned to the next guy left on their draft board. Grigsby is the best talent left at MLB, and although he doesn't have ideal height to play MLB he more than makes up for it with is speed, productivity, and his extremely competitive nature. He has a nose for the ball, and he brings an intensity to the Bengals' LB corp that they've been missing since the departure of Takeo Spikes. With Marvin Lewis as his head coach Boomer will flourish in Lewis' LB friendly system.

With the 84th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select

OT Wesley Britt, 6'7" 309, Alabama



The powerful Britt is a road grader in the running game and has the size and wingspan to keep pass rushers at bay. He is also a very polished player who has worked hard to refine his technique. Wesley sustained a broken leg last year but has really healed up and is playing as good as any tackle in the nation right now. He was recently selected to the prestigious Street & Smith's and Walter Camp Football Foundation's 1st Team All-American Team. This monster is extremely talented, he was a 1st team All-ACC left tackle before his fracture. He is very good blocking downfield and powerful in the running game. Alabama had a tremendous running game all year despite injuries to backfield stars. Britt was the lead blocker for the SEC's best ground attack dominating with 55 knockdown blocks. Alabama OT Wesley Britt suffered a hairline fracture in his fibula and sat out for the Senior Bowl.

With their last pick in the 3rd Round of the NFL Draft the Cincinatti Bengals select Utah DT Sione Pouha 6'3 330.


He has excellent strength, and is very powerful. He's very athletic for his size, and is very quick off the ball. He's a great team leader, and the epitome of a good character guy. He has alot of potential, and he'll be a big help to the Bengals' run defense. He needs to work on his consistency, and, at 26, he's a little older than most rookies. Marvin Lewis should be able to "coach him up", and get a more consistant effort out of Pouha. This concludes the Bengals draft.

1st Round: DE Marcus Spears LSU
2nd Round: C Ben Wilkerson LSU
3rd Round: MLB Boomer Grigsby Illinois State
3rd Round: DT Sione Pouha Utah

The Bengals are relatively set on offense, and their major need is on the defensive side of the ball. Thus they directed 3 of their 4 first day picks towards the defense. Marcus Spears and Sione Pouha will give the Bengals the strong D-Line they've always sought. The better play by the D-Line will allow Cincinatti's linebackers to flow the ball easier, and that will only increase Boomer Grigsby's effectiveness. His speed and nose for the ball are among his best attributes, and with the DLine keeping the OLinemen off of the LBs you'll see Boomer excell at the NFL level. The Bengals OLine has long been a strength, and with Graham getting up there in years it was neccessary to find a young talented C in the draft to groom as his eventual replacement. By picking up the best C in the draft, Ben Wilkerson of LSU, the Bengals have assured that the OLine will continue to be a strength for many years to come. He'll have time to rehab his injury, and he'll have plenty of time to learn the playbook. With a stronger defense up the middle the Bengals have the liberty to pursue 'projects' in the second day of the draft like Goddard out of Marshall, or Matt Jones out of Arkansas.

Bud Adams falls as sleep as far as getting his card up, but still gets a quality WR Terrance Murphy WR Texas A & M....Murphy is a well-built athlete who was very productive for the Aggies. He is size/speed combination player who probably could work on route running a bit and more consistent explosive playmaking, but has good overall quickness and hands. In fact, he is probably good in most areas of being a WR, but may need develop on asset in order to become more than a number 2 in teh NFL.

With the 87th pick, the Detroit Lions select Atiyyah Ellison DT from Missouri.

This was a tough pick. I was torn between taking Kevin Everett(TE), Adrian McPherson(QB), Courtney Roby(WR), James Sanders(SS), & Atiyyah Ellison(DT).

I really need a SS, but since I lost out on Shazor & Donte Nicholson, I've decided to draft Tyjuan Hagler (OLB/SS) in the 4th or 5th round & convert him to a SS.

Kevin Everett could be a franchise TE someday, but Stephen Alexander is a solid player & I'm sticking with him.

Adrian McPherson is probably the best prospect left on the board &, for the team willing to take him, could be the steal of the draft. If he's on the board in the 4th round, I'll take him.

With Tai Streets most likely not returning next year, Roby would be a very nice addition. If he's on the board in the 4th & McPherson is gone, I'll take him or Brackins.

James Sanders (5'11" 205lbs, 4.60 40 yard dash) appears to be a solid SS prospect. However, he doesn't have the size & speed of Hagler (6'2" 230lbs, 4.49 40 yard dash). Hagler will be a SS in a LB's body.

Finally, that brings me to Atiyyah Ellison. With both Dan Wilkinson & Kelvin Pritchett being 32 & 36 years old respectively, it's definitely time to get some new blood to replace them in the DL. Ellison is a very productive player with good size, speed, & quickness. With Hall, Rogers, Ellison, & Tuck on the DL, Detroit will have a solid defensive front line for several years to come.
