    That's the first mock I've seen with Abiamiri in the first round.

    I dont see Russell falling to 14 but I dont know where he could go earlier in this mock, so thats not a big problem with me.

    Everything else looks solid.

    I was a little surprised myself that Russell fell that far, but it was hard to find anyone else before there that would take him, although likely someone would trade up in there. I don't think at this point that Miami would take him, they have two former top-11 picks at QB and a brand new coach that hasn't worked with either, so I don't know that he'd bail on both of them already, and I think Quinn is definitely more of Cam Cameron's type of QB.

    As for Abiamiri, I didn't really know what to give the Ravens there, and he reminds me a decent amount of Adalius Thomas as he can play OLB in a 3-4 set or DE and even OLB in a 4-3 set as well, so if they lose Thomas to free agency I think Abiamiri could be an intriguing prospect for them.

    can't fault you for another outstanding effort. you have Peterson worthy of the #1 pick, yet falling into the Texans lap- that should play well into the local sentiment. Jamaal Anderson must be a favorite of yours, being a possible #2 pick thru #10 & settling @ #5. how does he rate next to Mario Williams as a pro de prospect? JaMarcus Russell who you must not like, rating him as a possible #1 overall pick yet slipping to #14. I'm not even going to mention LB. I thought you would have Adam Carriker going higher, but upon further reflection this draft is shaping up to be deeper than most thought. once again nice job with only a few objections (would'nt have it any other way).

    I am enjoying the new link you provided however http://www.mymockdraft.com/MockReview.aspx?mid=932 keep it up :)

    I am with you on picks 1-4 from a need perspective and actually from a player standpoint at those positions although I have not seen Wright. If Kalil and Meriweather are both available at this pick that is a good thing for Texans' nation.

    I've heard that JaMarcus Russell will not fall past Cleveland because Phil Savage is a Mobile, AL guy, has had JaMarcus at his camp in Mobile for several years and will draft him with the opportunity.

    I think Todd McShay had him fall to the Dolphins.

    Wright isn't my favorite, looking back I probably would have taken Wade over him but I don't know. Wade reminds me a little of Philip Buchanon in that he's a great athlete but isn't very physical at all.

    I'm also not all that fond of taking Trent Edwards, but I think it would be a strong possibility if he's available there.

    I think they'd take Quinn over Russell but at this point who knows. For that matter, I think a lot of the teams near the top of the draft would prefer Quinn to Russell.

    Mork, that was a cool site, and I may make my own mock later today, but I was not particuarly fond of our picks. I see no reason for picking Wright or Edwards. I would count those as wasted picks for our team if they were to happen next year. I won't argue with AD, though I feel we could do better. I love Merriwether in the 2nd.

    For what it is worth, probably just smoke;

    Browns | Team interested in Russell?
    Sun, 11 Feb 2007 06:15:07 -0800

    Tony Grossi, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, reports Cleveland Browns owner Randy Lerner reportedly told a local television station that he would like to select LSU QB JaMarcus Russell with the team's No. 1 pick in April's NFL Draft.

    They have also let it be known they want AP.
