    1. OAKLAND - Calvin Johnson, no surprise, with Porter leaving and Moss wanting out why not take the best player in the draft. Could surprise and take Russell.

    2. DETROIT - some surprise here, ranks 32nd in rushing offense, Martz flexes his muscle, Lions need to win soon or get fired. K Jones anemic 689 yds, 3.8 avg yds isn't getting it done, Lions take:Adrian Peterson

    3. CLEVELAND - with the 3rd worst rushing defense and NT Ted Washington going into his 17th year, Browns take:Alan Branch

    4. TAMPA - Bucs took (2) OL w/ 1st two picks last year, defense is getting old, QB play has been terrible. Sims gets ONLY gets a 2 yr contract. Bucs bite the bullett and take Gaines Adams.

    5. ARIZONA - With Leonard Davis most likely headed out of town, Cards need to protect Matt & Edge and take: Joe Thomas

    6. WASHINGTON - weakest link is pass defense and putting pressure on the QB. Skins take: Glenn Dorsey

    7. MINNESOTA - Johnson is getting old and was benched. Vikes need to find the answer at QB and take Brady Quinn

    8. HOUSTON - Looking for the answer at QB, Texans trade the #8 pick and David Carr to the Atlanta Falcons for: Matt Schaub.

    Rick Smith and Gary Kubiak should be fired on the spot if they ever traded a high first round pick for Matt Schaub.

    Everyone should be fired if that happens, plus McNair should be forced to sell the team to someone who won't let that bonehead move happen.

    #1-7 I gave some thought to. I could have been boring and said a DB or RB for Houston. Why be boring. First, let me go on record, I am not an advocate of drafting a QB, pure and simple, but if you told me the Texans are taking a QB with the first pick....Matt Schaub would be the best available QB out there and the Texans would have to give their #1 for him. There are several reasons this won't happen.

    1. Atlanta will not want 2 top 10s, to expensive.
    2. " would not want Carr's inflated salary.

    Nothing personal, but that is about the most idiotic idea for the Texans offseason that I've seen, and I've seen a lot of them already. Detroit also won't take Peterson, they are last in the league in rushing because of their system, not because of a lack of talent at RB. Peterson doesn't fit their system especially well and they have much more pressing needs. I also don't see Minnesota taking Brady Quinn after using a 2nd rounder on Tavaris Jackson last year.

    AP would fit their (Martz) system the way Marshall Faulk fit the (Martz)system in St. Louis.

    Actually Lynch would be a better fit for the Martz system. He is much more comparable to Faulk than Peterson is.

    Peterson and Faulk are two completely different kinds of RBs. Kevin Jones is a very good fit for their system assuming he comes back healthy for the start of the year. Larry Johnson is probably the closest NFL comparison to Adrian Peterson, and Detroit has a lot of other problems to fill. This partial mock is just crazy, hopefully it was just meant to stir the pot and not as a serious suggestion.

    For the record I've said it the last couple weeks, probably not on the MBs, but I agree we agree with each others' analysis on this.
