    1. 49ers Aaron Rodgers QB Cal
    49ers officials will try to trade down. If stuck with the No. 1 pick, then Rodgers is the right quarterback in which to rebuild a franchise. He has improved remarkably the last two years and will be ready to play in '05.

    2. Dolphins Cedric Benson RB Texas
    The Dolphins need a productive running back. Benson is a big, physical back who runs with power and speed, and he never stops hustling.

    3. Browns Derrick Johnson OLB Texas
    The Browns could build a solid defense around this Ray Lewis type of linebacker.

    4. Bears Braylon Edwards WR Michigan
    The Bears are desperate for a go-to receiver. Edwards is a big playmaker with tremendous skills, size and speed.

    5. Buccaneers Alex Barron T Florida State
    Barron has the size, strength and athleticism to dominate the line of scrimmage.

    6. Titans Erasmus James DE Wisconsin
    James is powerful and athletic and never gives up on a play. He excels both as a pass rusher and run stuffer.

    7. Raiders Ronnie Brown RB Auburn
    The Raiders had the worst rushing offense in the NFL last season (80.9 yards per game) and need a big upgrade. Brown, a two-dimensional back, can run with power and speed and is a big-time threat as a receiver.

    8. Cardinals Alex Smith QB Utah
    Smith moves into the top 10 after Matt Leinart's decision to stay in school for his senior season. Smith is the right quarterback to guide this young and potentially dangerous offense.

    9. Redskins David Pollack DE Georgia
    The Redskins must improve their defensive line. Pollack is a big, physical and experienced end. He is a big-time playmaker because of his speed and energy.

    10. Lions Kevin Burnett OLB Tennessee
    Burnett has great speed and athletic ability. He never stops hustling, shows great tackling skills and has a knack for making big plays.

    11. Cowboys Antrel Rolle CB Miami (Fla.)
    Rolle is the shutdown cornerback Dallas desperately needs. He has the size, speed and skills to be a game-altering presence.

    12. Chargers Adam "Pac Man" Jones CB West Virginia
    (from N.Y. Giants) Jones, a junior, has the skills to be a big-time cornerback and would immediately upgrade the Chargers' secondary. He has outstanding speed, is tough and is an excellent tackler.

    13. Texans Dan Cody DE Oklahoma
    The Texans are primed to be a serious playoff contender in 2005. Cody is a tough, physical and speedy end who makes big plays. He also shows great leadership skills.

    14. Panthers Elton Brown G Virginia
    Brown is a dominant force who would open big holes for Stephen Davis and DeShaun Foster.

    15. Chiefs Carlos Rogers CB Auburn
    Rogers is a big, strong fearless defender with all the tools to be a top NFL cornerback.

    16. Saints Travis Johnson DT Florida State
    Johnson is a quick, strong, hard hitter who can stop the run. He especially excels at penetrating the line.

    17. Bengals Thomas Davis S Georgia
    Davis is an outstanding athlete who covers a lot of ground and would be the big, tough, physical presence the Bengals need.

    18. Vikings Channing Crowder ILB Florida
    The Vikings have multiple needs on defense. Crowder is a big, aggressive powerful hitter who has the speed and athleticism to cover the field.

    19. Rams Brandon Browner CB Oregon State
    Browner is just what the Rams need -- a big, fast and physical playmaker who can matchup man-to-man with big receivers.

    20. Cowboys Jammal Brown T Oklahoma
    (from Buffalo) Brown is giant and athletic with outstanding blocking skills. He would be the perfect addition to the Cowboys.

    21. Jaguars Mike Williams WR USC
    Williams would be a steal at this point in the draft. Williams has size and outstanding playmaking ability. With his incredible hands, he and QB Byron Leftwich could be a deadly combination for the next decade.

    22. Ravens Mark Clayton WR Oklahoma
    Clayton is an all-around receiver who does everything -- run, jump, catch, and even block -- extremely well. He would be a perfect target for QB Kyle Boller and the right complement for RB Jamal Lewis.

    23. Seahawks Shawne Merriman DE Maryland
    Merriman is big and strong with outstanding skills. He played mostly outside linebacker in college but could be a powerful and aggressive end rusher.

    24. Packers Matt Roth DE Iowa
    Roth would give the Packers a big-time pass rusher with size and speed. He is a playmaker who is relentless in pursuit.

    25. Broncos Carnell Williams RB Auburn
    If Williams lasts this far, he would be a nice pickup for Denver, which is looking to trade Reuben Droughns. Williams has great speed, size and lower-body strength. He fights for every yard.

    26. Jets Brodney Pool S Oklahoma
    The Jets have multiple needs on defense. Pool is a big, fast playmaker who can make a difference and be an immediate upgrade.

    27. Falcons Vince Carter C Oklahoma
    Carter is a big, powerful center who could protect QB Michael Vick and give him room to roam.

    28. Chargers Adam Terry T Syracuse
    The Chargers' line could use an infusion of youth. Terry has the wingspan to push pass rushers wide of the pocket and the blocking skills to open holes for RB LaDainian Tomlinson.

    29. Colts Shaun Cody DT USC
    Cody creates matchup problems with his quickness and size. He could be the big-time playmaker the Colts need.

    30. Patriots Corey Webster CB LSU
    The Patriots' secondary has been shorthanded all season. Webster is a very fast, hard-hitting cornerback with big-play skills and a tough attitude.

    31. Eagles Anttaj Hawthorne DT Wisconsin
    Hawthorne has the strength and size to be a run stopper and an unblockable force as a pass rusher.

    32. Steelers Marlin Jackson CB Michigan
    The Steelers likely will look to upgrade first on defense. Jackson is a tough, physical shutdown cornerback who could provide an immediate impact.

    Barring a horrific combine there is no way in h-e-doublehockeysticks Mike Williams falls to #21. Same with Carnell Williams at #25, The Cadillac could be the best future NFL back in this draft.

    Personally I'd take Alex Smith over Aaron Rodgers.

    Not that bad. But I think Browner is a 2nd round and Vince Carter is not going in the 1st.

    I think that Cody would be a perfect complement (or supplement?) to #93
    that would leave Peek available for the situational passrush that he thrives on

    as much as I would like to see Peek on the field everydown, I am afraid he would lose some of his lethality from a combination of less than fresh legs and too much game film for the other team to gameplan against him
    as it stands now, opposing oline coaches must surmise that the man cannot be stopped

    Cody-Grigsby-Sharper-Babin


    if you guys watch much NFL channel (#212 on the dial, #1 in your heart) than surely you notice that we get a Willie McGinest analysis pretty much every week
    well Peek is every bit as dangerous is w-mac is in my opinion
    when he's out there, everybody that is blocking on that play has to be wary of him

    I thought Juppru was a blocking TE.

    Joppru is the best combination of a blocking and recieving TE that we have on the roster. Unfortunately he has yet to play a snap in the NFL. Bruener is our blocking TE, and Miller is our receiving TE (basically a slower WR). Teams can tell what we're going to do just by whatever TE is in the game. If Joppru comes back healthy, and performs well then it will leave the defense guessing more.

    I like Cody McCarty from Bishop
    he played mainly TE for the horned frogs
    very smart football player

    who else is available with Williams though? Honestly.. if Williams is available.. I could see us trading down very easily. there are plenty of teams who would jump on williams and we really dont need him.

    Personally.. the only guys I see us NOT passing on at #13.. are Rolle, Hawthorne, and Johnson.

    Ive got my fingers crossed for Hawthorne.

    I wouldn't mind Dan Cody over williams
    of course I'm not trying to sell tickets, I just want to win
    the lions and cards both have two top shelf receivers and they are mediocre teams on their best days
    go study our statistical breakdowns and come back and explain exactly what a first round receiver could do that we are unable to do with our current personnel minus corey b (we don't have heimerdinger, we have CPalmer)
    don't forget we have starling who has as much ceiling as anyone on the team including angry dre
    our best bet would be to do our best to get our hands on BigPlay Trey Haverty from Berkner (Richardson) and/or Matt Jones (who will play receiver in the bigs)
