    Top 10 picks make sense for now...Don't see how Dwayne Jarrett could drop that far but man it would be great for VY and the Titans. Also, I'm not sure the Pats will draft a receiver that high. I think they will improve that defense and if Asante Samuel leaves they'll look to bring in some insurance.

    Check it out, same player I chose for the Bears in the Member Mock Draft. And to think people were telling me that Miller was the better prospect; I atleast have one person who agrees.

    I think he has too many WRs, going #1. I really don't think Anthony Gonzalez is a first round pick.

    I also agree I don't see that many WRs going over Jerrett.

    If Peterson is there at 8, I really hope they trade down to the teens and get Marshawn Lynch and an extra 3rd.

    I don't know what some of you see in Lynch that makes him more appealing than AP.

    I like Lynch and think that we should pick him if Peterson is gone, but if Peterson is there, you have to pick him.

    Admittedly I have not seen enough Lynch to think he warrants a pick at #8. But I do want the A-Train.

    What makes you like the Lynch?

    He is the prototypical size for a running back, runs with power but has enough speed to break long runs and has great hands out of the back field, but can also catch the ball down field.

    He also does not have as much wear as Peterson which I think is important for a position that has such a short shelf life.

    There were a couple of selections that suprised me in this mock draft. Dwayne Jarret going so low and Robert Meachem and Anthony Gonzales going in the first round? And how about Anthoney Spenser at #29? I think the most shocking thing to me was Aaron Ross being the first Texas DB taken, and not Micheal Griffen, plus Ross going before Hughes.

    But oh well, this is what this guy gets payed to do and he knows a heck of a lot more than we do.

    I think he will be just as good of an NFL running back plus he would be cheaper, and we get the extra pick. Its not like we couldnt use all of the picks we can get our hands on.

    In a better draft class with a different vibe coming from the fanbase I'd agree with you. Today though I take the running back at 8.

    i think it's more that people fear injury concerns with peterson.

    he has poszlusney going in the 3rd round. if he's available then, would you take him? could he bulk up and play SLB? he looks pretty maxed out at 237, so i dont know, but he'd be a steal as a 3rd rounder.
