    Mel Kiper Jr. is going to have his first mock draft board. I heard he has the Texans trading away their first pick. That's just rumor though. Take it for what it's worth.

    I think it was posted on ESPN Insider and he has us taking Bush with the 1st pick. It is posted over at the Jags MB but there is no link.

    I'm just going off what my friend said. I work in TV, he works in TV for ESPN, and he was just passing off late info.

    His argument for D'Angelo makes you wonder why he wouldn't be the first RB taken.

    Houston, again.
    His board will change more than a stripper on saturday night before the draft comes around. He keeps doing it so that he can say "I had that guy sloted...".

    Carpenter to NE makes sense. I wanted him to drop to the 2nd though.

    Is that Kiper's actual mock?!?!? OMG if it is, that guy is ignorant. He gets paid for this, he shouldn't make these kinds of mistakes.

    7. San Francisco -- DeMeco Ryans, LB, Alabama
    That won't happen. Ryans isn't good enough for the top 10 and isn't big enough for the 3-4 D the 49ers run.

    9. Detroit -- Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
    13. Baltimore -- Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
    As of right now (precombine) these picks are huge reaches, if those teams draft those guys they might as well trade down and get a few more picks.

    22. Denver (from Wash.) -- Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College
    23. Tampa Bay -- Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona State
    I doubt Kiwi falls that far, and I doubt Hagan rises that high and have the Bucs take him when Marcus McNeil is still on the board.

    25. New York Giants -- *Ernie Sims, LB, Florida State
    If Giants do draft an LB it won't be Sims, or at least not before the combine, especially when you have a bigger and faster guy, Howard, still on the board.

    27. Carolina -- *Anthony Fasano, TE, Notre Dame
    A crazy pick before the combine, if he had said Mercedes Lewis it would be different.

    30. Indianapolis -- *Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota
    I don't think Maroney falls that far, but crazy things can happen in the draft.

    I dont know about Hali, but Cutler is very high on a lot of teams boards. Cutler would have been the 2nd QB taken behind Lineart if VY didnt come out.

    I think Hali is the exception to the rule & Cutler is close the examples yoda gives are correct, in my opinion and hence forth receives high marks for being both specific and accurate :superman:

    the biggest reason I don't see the lions taking cutler is for the same reason I don't see the Saints taking Vince, their hungry for a winning season and they don't have time (fanwise) to develop a QB when their entire offense is already built as well

    Developed as in all the tools have been brought into the team (Horn, Stallworth, and McAllister) for them to succeed with just one piece missing, that being Leinart.

    Also I know I've listed in other threads 2 big reasons for why the Saints wouldn't take Vince with the 2nd, but actually there are 3 big reasons. The 3rd being that last year the Saints drafted an RT in Jammal Brown, and we all know that one of a QBs most important tools is his LT but in Lienart's case, a Southpaw, his is an RT......... hmmmm who would I choose if I was them?!?! man tough..... cough Leinart cough lol
