Updated. With new Texans Pick, and Vince going higher, also the texans first pick in Rd. 2 Trades: Houston Gives: 1st overall pick NYJ gives: 4th overall pick 1st Rd pick next season IND gives: 32nd overall pick 92nd overall pick Chicago gives: 25th overall pick Rd 1 Pick 1 NYJ(from houston) Reggie Bush, RB, USC It just makes too much sence. Reggie goes to a team with a future HOF running back going down the tubes, as opposed to Houston with a top 10 RB. Ever since NYJ fans had the thought of getting the number 1 pick, they have been raving about possibly getting bush. this is their chance. Bush is the number 1 back, and player in the NFL, and thats why he's picked first. Rd 1 Pick 2 New Orleans Saints Matt Leinart, QB, USC New Orleans gets the much needed QB help. Lets face it, Brooks dosent get the job done one little bit. Lienart has supperior passing skills and has help in Joe Horn down field. McCalister, a top back aswell is another weapon in the NO arsenol, and even though no D exists, there are 9 more picks to work on that, and Lienart is too good to pass up here. Rd 1 Pick 3 Tenessee Titans Vince Young, QB, Texas Vince's Arm is still a question, but Tennessee needs a QB because Mcnair is owed a crapload of money this offseason in his contract. Vince is the perfect fit, because he plays like a Mcnair or Mcnabb, and the Titans wont have to change the offensive schemes much. Vince has a great arm, but sometimes has accuracy problems. Get him with some great trainers in the NFL and he could become one of the elite. Rd 1 Pick 4 Houston Texans (from NYJ) D'brickashaw Furguson, OT, Virginia Furguson has incredible size and agility for a LT. Can plow down the DE on runs and keep even top DE's at bay during passing plays. In a draft with a boatload of OTs, Furguson is the best, which says alot. He is a true talent with no weaknesses anywhere. The Texans get him and two first rounders next year and comes out on top. Davis is already a good back, with D'brick he could become elite, as could the Texans franchise. Rd 1 Pick 5 Green Bay Packers AJ Hawk, OLB, OH. ST The Pack have an OK secondary, and a decent Dline lead by Baja Biamilia, but their LB core has really struggled. Hawk leads the LB core coming into the 06 draft, and for good reasons. He is commonly thought of as an Urlacher with hard downfield hitting. Improving the D is one step needed in GB, and allows them to focus on their once deadly trio : Favre, Green, and Walker. Rd 1 Pick 6 Oakland Raiders Mario Williams, DE, NC ST The Raiders need a defense badly, aswell as a QB, but the offense can get by. With Sapp aging, he is no longer a big factor on the Dline. Williams brings great presence at DE, and is thought of as a bigger Freeney. Williams edges out BC start Mathais Kiwanuka as the top DE off the board. Mario Williams is the biggest DE threat since Julius Peppers, and he turned out quite alright. Rd 1 Pick 7 San Francisco Mathais Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College SF misses out on Bush by winning vs. Texans but still get their hands on a keeper. With major defense help, and no presence besides Julian Petersan, Mathais allows there to be a passrush on nearly every passing play. Mathais is a pass rushing, run stopping threat out of BC. Lowly recruited out of Indianapolis - Cathedral, hes performed sesationally for BC, and should continue that into the pros. The lackluster Dline, already possibly worst in the league, really needs this boost here from "kiwi". Rd 1 Pick 8 Buffalo Bills Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon Haloti has the physical talent unmatched by the nation at DT. He constantly breaks down double teams on him, which not only is a huge factor himself, but allows the DE's an easier path to the QB. He could be the bills next Bruce Smith Dliner. He stops runs up the middle, and even applies significant pressure to the QB at a position not known to do mainly stop the run. Rd 1 Pick 9 Detroit Lions Jimmy Williams, CB, Virginia Tech YAY! the lions finally get it! They need a defense. Frankly an offensive pick here, and they might be run out of Detroit. Williams is a fast corner, and also big. He can tackle unlike many CBs in the game, and is rarely found without his man. Hes not a gambling CB, so INTs will not be skyrocketing, but neither will his man's #'s. Rd 1 Pick 10 Arizona Cardinals Deangelo Williams, RB, Memphis Maroney is a possiblity here, but i feel Williams is the correct choice. Maroney took a whole lot of carries at Minn, and may lose a year in the pros. Deangelo has great speed and agility, and is similiar less talented version of Bush. The Cardinals need to stop beeting around the bush and finally get a top back. Rd 1 Pick 11 St. Louis Rams Demeco Ryans, OLB, Alabama Ryans is the second OLB off the board. You know what your getting with Ryans. Hes an agelic LB with great vision on the field and should add some youth to the Rams D. Rd 1 Pick 12 Cleveland Browns Eric Winston, OT, Miami Winston has great agility and downfield push, making him a top 15 pick in the draft. Miami has had a great history with Olineman making him an intreguing pick. Cleveland has a decent RB in Droughns, but with Winston he could be top notch. They need a QB, but dont like any options around them. Winston provides a solid foundation for the next 10-15 yeras for Cleveland. Rd 1 Pick 13 Baltimore Ravens Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt Ravens finally figure out Boller isnt the asnwer and go with Cutler. Cutler really rose in the projections and is possibly the #2 senior signal caller. Jay is constantly moving up the polls, but i doubt he goes higher than this. The ravens have a solid Oline, decent recieving core, and a good D when healthy... but no QB. Cutler helps this, and tries not to be another Boller. Rd 1 Pick 14 Philladelphia Eagles Santanio Holmes, WR, OH. St. The Ealges have one huge need. WR. With owens gone, they have to replace him somehow, if they want to be back to a superbowl contending team. Holmes shows great speed and hands, and is the top WR off the board. Rd 1 Pick 15 Atlanta Falcons Martin Nance, WR, Miami(OH) Atlanta needs a WR if theyre going to go any futher. Vick has to have mroe targets than a TE. Nance is more of a possession reciever and is commonly compared to Reggie Wayne, who also came out of Miami (OK so that was Miami Fl, but who cares ). No major tweeking besides a WR is in order for ATL. Rd 1 Pick 16 Miami Dolphins Marcus Mcneil, OT, Auburn Saban has done a tremendous job to turn this joke around. They established their main need last year in getting Ronnie, now they need someone good for him to run behind. While maybe Scott out of Texas is possibly a better pick, Mcneil was Browns teammate when he was in Auburn, so the phins choose to take a Top notch takle in Mcneil, who definatly warrants a top 20 pick. Rd 1 Pick 17 Minnesota Vikings Lawrence Maroney, RB, Minnesota The Vikes havent had a consistant RB in forever. They cannot go on with their 3rb duo. They have a lot of OK Rbs, but when you have a lot of something, its usually a lot of nothing. Maroney is a hometown favortie which makes sence he goes here, not only because he went to Minn, but because hes the best RB talent left on the board. Rd 1 Pick 18 Dallas Cowboys Chad Greenway, OLB, Alabama If Greenway is still here its a steal, but with a draft full of LB talent and not a ton of teams needing a LB the boys luck out. He plays in a Big Ten conference full of Top LB's and ranks right up there with the best of them. A WR would be the best pick for the Cowboys, but no credible ones are left on the board. Rd 1 Pick 19 San Diego Chargers Michael Huff, S, Texas Huff could be a S or CB in the pros but either way the Chargers need DESPERATE secondary help. A top safety can help fill the void of the constant deep passes going over the Chargers CBs heads. Huff is quick with a great nose for the ball, which should make for a great pro. Rd 1 Pick 20 Kasas City Darnell Bing, S, USC The third USC player is off the board, and 5 will go in the first round. KC has done a good job making their D from Awful to average, but still struggle in the passing game. Bing is a hard hitter, and is like a Bob Sanders for Indy. His presence alone could keep WR from going over the middle, in turn helping out the KC D greatly Rd 1 Pick 21 New England Patriots Tye Hill, CB, Clemson A slight reach here, but the pats secondary has gone from best in the NFL to a bottom dweller, losing Malloy, Harrison, and Law in the past couple years to FA and Injury. Hill will help rebuilt the Pats seconddary and improve the D as a whole. Besides, you know the last time the Pats had a CB named Tye(Ty) how successful he was . Rd 1 Pick 22 Denver Broncos (from Wash last yr) Claude Wroten, DT, LSU The Broncos own the Oline, but the Dline is a differnet story. Theyve allowed 100 yard rushers more than they would like. The D is pretty good, but the Wroten adds a presence like the Neil Smith of old. Rd 1 Pick 23 Carolina Panthers Jon Scott, OT, Texas Biggest steal of the draft right here. Hes possibly the 3rd best tackle in the draft, but Dolphins go mcneil b/c he's ronnies teammate in Auburn. This leaves the Panthers to really cash in. Scott was the reason Texas had a good run game with really no stellar backs. He should fit well in the system opening holes for Foster. Rd 1 Pick 24 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame Tampa turned a laughable O into an average one with the aquisition of Carnell Willaims at RB. They still have no decent option at QB. Thats where Quinn comes in. Quinn really gained crediblity leading the Irish to a top 5 team, and who knows how much better had USC not pulled out that miracle at the end. This move catapults TB back to a superbowl contender. Rd 1 Pick 25 Indianapolis Colts (From Chicago) Lendale White, RB, USC This wont happen if the Colts keep Edge, but something tells me he's gone, because its going to be near impossible to keep edge and wayne. White gets lost in the Wake of Bush and is much like a Ronnie Brown to Caddallac Williams last year. The paycut the colts gain from this pick also allows them to sign a top CB or LB. Rd 1 Pick 26 Cincinatti Bengals Ahmad Brooks, ILB, Virginia Cinci has a decent secondary, but the LBs and Dline struggle. Brooks is the best MLB in the draft and can really take over a game at times. He has great size and is primarily a run stopper, but plays the pass very well too. He helps but the bengals D in teh right direction. Mercedes Lewis is an option here aswell. Rd 1 Pick 27 NY Giants Tamba Hali, DE, Penn St. Strahan cannot play forever. The giants cannot afford to lose ground as they lose Strahans ability. Hali was a solid presence at Penn st, and should provide a solid force as a pass rusher for NY. Rd 1 Pick 28 Pittsburgh Steelers Mercedes Lewis, TE, UCLA With teams needing a bigger need than TE Lewis slips a bit, and the Steelers love it. Losing Burress, Rothlesberger needs more options downfield, and a TE like lewis could be a great counterpart to ward, and spread out Ben's options. Rd 1 Pick 29 Jacksonville Jaguars Winston Justice, OT, USC The 5th, yes 5th trojan to go in the first round. Is that a record? Justice provided a solid line for Bush, White, and Leinart, all going before him. Jax needs RB help, and unless they want to stretch on Drew, they will have to take the stud OT. Winston can give Taylor one more solid year, and allow a new back to have a great foundation Rd 1 Pick 30 Seattle Seahawks Jesse Mahelona, DT, Tennessee The seahawks finally became a more consitant team, and a solid Dline will help even more. they allow a little much rushing yards, and Jesse is a prime run stopper from the Voulunteer College. Rd 1 Pick 31 Denver Broncos Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland Ever since Sharpe has left, the Broncos havent had a force to be reconed with at TE. They won all of their championships with a top one. Another option here is Simarzjiah from ND, but Smith has another good year, and lelie is a decent 2 guy. Rd 1 Pick 32 Chicago Bears (From Indianapolis) Jeff Samardzija, WR, Notre Dame Bears trade back because they fell they can get their man later in the draft. Earth to the Bears, you need an offense. Grossman can get by and Benson could be a future back, but WR wise, they still need help. They double team Muhammad because hes the only Bears reciever who understands that you have to use your hands to catch. Jeff takes some pressure off Mushin, and helps out the Bears O in the doing. RD 2 Pick 1 Max Jean Gilles, OG Gilles was the surperior guard in college this year. With getting D'brick, their line needs a makeover and they do it all here getting the best OT, and OG. The Texans felt this year they would be playoff contenders yet greatly dissapointed their fans. An oline is a HUGE start to their succes. Gilles provides a great push and was able to hold many good DT to very little action during college.
