    First of the year give me some slack :hmmm:


    1 San Francisco:
    Alex smith QB-better fit than rogers
    2 Miami:
    Ronnie brown RB-He is a better fit than benson
    3 Cleveland:
    Aaron rogers QB-Jeffs not the answer
    4 Chicago:
    Braylon Edwards-they need some one to help REX grow
    5 Tampa Bay:
    Alex Barron OT- they need to fix there o-line more than they need pitmans replacment
    6 Tennessee:
    Mike williams Wr-I dont think they can keep masson and williams is a playmaker
    7 Oakland:
    Antrell Rolle CB-Bucanan is not the answer so they take anther maim CB
    8 Arizona:
    Cedric Benson RB- Emmitt Smith is not doing it and they need a plamaker in the backfield
    9 Washington:
    Erasmus James DE- they need to get some pressure of the edge he does that
    10 Detroit:
    Tomas davis SS-Gives them a true playmaker on the secondary
    11 Dallas:
    Adam Jones CB- packman is a great fit in Dallas
    12 San Diego (from New York Giants):
    Derrick Johnson OLB- Donnie cant play forever and Derrick Johnson is the BPA
    13 Houston:
    Anttaj Hawthorne NT- the texans need to get some pressure up the middle and O-line can be fixed in the latter round
    14 Carolina:
    Jammal Brown OT- need to fix the O-line more than anything
    15 Kansas City:
    Carlos Rogers CB-they need to fix the D now
    16 New Orleans:
    Shaun Cody DT-They need to replace The Bust
    17 Cincinnati:
    David Pollack DE- Not a huge need just BPA
    18 Minnesota:
    Brandon Browner CB/FS-Where else do you find a 6’4 210lb CB that runs a low 4.4? Brian Russell is also a free agent and they need another hard hitting ball hawk to take over at FS
    19 St. Louis:
    Adam Terry OT- they need help becase it looks like turley is done
    20 Dallas (from Buffalo):
    Shawne Merriman OLB-DE-word is they might smithch to a 3-4 and Merriman can play in both
    21 Jacksonville:
    Marcus Spears DE- they get the DE they need
    22 Baltimore:
    Roddy White WR- thet need a WR and white has huge upside
    23 Seattle:
    Carnell Williams RB- they cant tag all ther free agents And a LT is harder to find than a RB
    24 Green Bay:
    Dan Cody DE- Qb will be fixed later and ther pass rush made there D look horibal this year
    25 Denver:
    Heath Miller TE -they need a TE to make Jake look good

    That's a good point. I heard during the season that Holmgren had some problems with Alexander's running style. He felt that Shaun should be more willing to take on tacklers. Now that Holmgren is back in control, Jones could get the franchise tag (again) and Alexander could hit the FA market. While I think the Seahawks would prefer a bigger back like Benson or Brown, a RB here makes sense.

    Mines better...haha just kidding

    I do think that you are thinking too many teams will be going on team needs, instead of just upgrading their talent level, which most teams do in the draft

    Just wondering, is Kevin Everett a first round talent? From what I've heard, his hands aren't that great and he needs to work on his blocking...

    The mock seems solid, BTW...

    good job, but I agree with D-Rek on the case of Everett.I heard he isn't that good of a reciever.

    everett is a physical freak that is still learning how to play the game. his hands are suspect and hasn't played that much at a high level since he was behind winslow last year and shared time with olsen this year. that is what will keep him out of the first and possible second round, but could change with a good combine and pro day.

    Very Nice Mock for January. Better than mine. Gonna be interesting to see how the Titans handle their offensive tackel problems. If TB takes the top rated ot off the board maybe they move down. But a game breaking wr might just be the fix they need. Course the rumor is McNair is off to the farm. Seeing Bud spend that kind of money on a weapon he can't utilize will make a lot of people happy on this board. We'll see how Much luv Mcnair has for Adams if he retires befor or after the draft. Gonna kill me to see Derick Johnson go just in front of us. Probably too light for a 3-4 scheeme anyway.

    Payne is damaged goods. Hes not very quick off the ball, and this new injury is only gonna make him slower. He will probably just reinjure it so we shold just use that money to try to sign Free Agent Guard Garza, from the Atlanta Falcons.
    Then trade down and pick up Marcus Spears, WHILE picking up some more picks. :hmmm: Just think about it

    And he still had the same number of sacks as Robaire Smith and 2 more than G-Funk's donut...

    If the price is right, we have to bring him back...

    if he is ready to go by next season and seems healthy enough to play than i'd like to see him stay, but if another injury of this sort accures i see no other option but letting him go. Though i'd hate to see him go, its better than paying him to sit out hurt for most of the season !

    Robaire Smith only had 2 sacks because there is not another threat on the line for them to leave Robaire one on one. I have said before, and will say it again, the Texans need a show stopper in the middle of that line. Somebody like Sam Adams, Casey Hampton, and how Tony Saragusa use to play. A guy of that size in the middle of the line clogging up running lanes and requiring at least two blockers on run assignment will free up Robaire Smith, Gary Walker, and our pass rushing outside linebackers to have a field day racking up tackles behind the line of scrimmage and sacking the quarterback. The nose tackle from USC - Patterson, I think, seems to be that kind of player. He's quick on his feet, gets into the centers chest quickly off the line, and reaks havic. He wont be the Texans pick at 13, if they stay there, but a real possibility for them in the second round if he's still on the boards. I have a sneeky suspicion that S. Cody will be wearing the Battle Red next year.

    Roderick Wright would have been an unbelievable pick in regards to the Texans needs had he opted out of his senior season.

    Along the lines of getting Derrick Johnson, forget it. That guy is probably the best, pure football player in this draft. He will be an instant starter and Pro Bowl caliber player for many years to come. The teams ahead of the Texans do have areas of need more pressing than Linebacker, but he's the type player that teams will choose regardless of their needs because he's just that good. I won't be surprised to see San Fran. take him with the first pick overall and make a run for Leirnart next year. They are almost certain to have the first pick again next year and Leinart is certainly a much more polished quarterback than either Rogers or Smith.

    For the wishful dreamers, I'm afraid your going to wake up cold and dissappointed when you see Derrick Johnson long gone before pick #13.
