    So K like some of the picks others not sure on why would NE trade up to get a guy that is falling when they can stay put and get a guy like Lawson or Tye Hill. Also, do you think Simeon Rice is a cap casualty in Tampa because they need OL help alot more than DL help.

    On the other side of things I see brilliance in the Pitt pick, but no way GB passes over Mario to take a RB. Deangelo will be a guy that falls likely to Minnesota or someone of the like. Also Baltimore is not bringing back lewis may keep Taylor do you see them shoring up that right side which I think is definately a possiblity.

    Other than a couple of things like I mentioned I think it is a pretty good draft, would like to see your explanations on the picks to see what you were thinking on them.

    - cromartie is falling? if he has a good 40 time at the combine he could be a top 10 pick. top 15 guaranteed. new england trades up because they have more picks than anyone in the draft and having ties with romeo crennel, they're able to get a deal done
    - rice could be a casualty, which was a partial reason for the pick. the other side of the line isn't too fearsome either
    - i see jamal lewis resigning with the ravens. justice will be groomed to be the future left tackle. the packers will take deangelo as ahman green won't be back. williams is a great receiver as well as a great runner, so he'll help out tremendously in the development of aaron rodgers

    denver would never have to give up that much- either #22 and a 3rd and 4th
    or #29 and a second.bills are in a bit of cap jail i think so wouldnt mind trading down. pats arent a team that move up either-cromartie would likely fall to them and if not theres tye hill, youbuty etc or jennings in the 2nd

    I do not think Tenn. would take Cutler at #3. I think they will either go VY, most possible, but if we do not take D'brick, I could see Tenn. taking him at #3. I see only those two players being taken.

    With the Packers, if they pass on Mario for a RB, it will be Lendale White. They are stated it would be hard to pass him at #5.

    I do not think Vernon Davis will go top 10. He will be the first TE, but I realisticly expect around 14-16.

    Cromartie is a great physical talent, but has been out of the game for a while. I think he will be a first rounder, but no need to trade up to #12 for him. He will be a steal where he is picked. I look for him to go right about where NE is already picking.

    Gabe Watson in the middle of the first round? I think he will be lucky to go middle of the second. I expect him to go mid-late second.

    Other than that, I feel most of the players could go there. I do have some questions about certian players to select teams, but nice effort. Much appreciated.

    5 - Green Bay - DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis

    If the take an RB here it'll be White, but if not they should go with Mario Williams.

    6 - Oakland - Mario Williams, DE, NC State

    Not if Young is available, he'd be a steal at 6 and he's a need for them. I don't think expect to be back at the top of the draft again and with a QB which they need is there, and lots of vet QBs in FA this year Vince will be a Raider.

    8 - Buffalo - A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State
    LB isn't a need, DT is. Ngata is their pick.

    12 - New England TRADE: (Cleveland receives #21 and two 3rd rounders) - Antonio Cromartie, CB, FSU

    Why are they trading up for a guy they could get at 21, even though it'd be a small reach there? Had you said Williams, or Greenway that'd be a different story.

    14 - Philadelphia - Lendale White, RB, USC

    How is RB even a need for them? Westbrook, Moats.

    I give your draft a B+ grade cause you had some really weird picks but then you had even more impressive I-can't-beleive-I-never-saw-it-that-way picks down at the bottom
