    just going by ESPN's power rankings here:

    1: Oakland - Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech. porter is gone, moss is probably gone. al davis won't draft a QB. bring in johnson!
    2: Green Bay - Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma. despite broken collarbone, he'll still go top 5.
    3: Houston - Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal. i think he's better than peterson personally, and i think after a good season and combine, he'll go top 5 along with peterson. he fits kubiak's one-read RB system well, too.
    4: Arizona - Joe Thomas, T, Wisconsin. pretty simple pick here. the line is awful and they need studs to improve it. leonard davis is an all-pro, but he may be moved soon.
    5: Cleveland - Jared Gaither, T, Maryland. 2nd best offensive line prospect in the draft IMO. could be better in the long run than thomas.
    6: Miami - Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame. pure BPA situation here. saban isn't stupid.
    7: Tennessee - Daymeion Hughes, CB, Cal. already spent a top 10 pick on a CB, and they do it again here. reynaldo hill is really awful. hughes is the best DB in this draft IMO. that includes safeties.
    8: Detroit - Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville. the matt millen era is hopefully over at this point, and mike martz gets a young gunslinger who learns fast and will do very well in his offense.
    9: San Francisco - LaRon Landry, S, LSU. they're allowing 32 points a game this year. the offense looks good, but that defense is awful.
    10: Buffalo - Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson. this is definitely a BPA situation, as adams is considered by most to be better than the #10 player selected in the draft. a very young defense gets younger...and better.

    oakland doesn't draft QB's in the first round. i said it this past draft, and i'll say it again. al davis won't do it. forget about it.

    If Oakland will take Huff over Leinart and Cutler, they will take Johnson over Quinn. Why are some so suprised by this?

    I think Quinn will go to the Radiers. If we cant get Peterson, trade down and gete Merryweather from Miami. He can play Safety and step on people :)

    Because if Al Davis does it agian with there desperate need for a QB, he will have empty seats in the stadium...

    Yea I know, everyone thinks he will pick up Kurt Warner from Arizona next year, but we will have to wait and see...

    I agree though, Oakland will take a QB with first pick...

    Since when did Al Davis care about that? And when was the last time he drafted a QB in the first round?

    And disn't we all hear this same line of reasoning last year about the QB position in Raider nation? And did they address it then?

    after the marinovich disaster, al davis proclaimed he would never draft a QB in the first round again. al davis is senile enough to draft a kicker in the first round, and he's certainly senile enough to go against the fans' wants and the team's needs and stick to his guns JUST BECAUSE his ego is that absurdly massive.

    Hey, just curious, why do you like Lynch so much? I have not been able to see him play alot, but I have noticed you are a huge advocate of him. Thanks for any info.

    has good size, good speed, finds the whole and makes the quick decision and burst to get into the open field, outruns the defenders, has great escapability in the backfield even when the line breaks down...catches the ball well out of the backfield. he's perfect for houston. perfect.

    You can't honestly expect steller combine numbers from Lynch? He is not a top 5 back, and neither is Peterson after his injury.

    Hmmmm.......

    Don't like the Hughes pick. I really would be very suprised to him go top 10. I am not even sure if he is a first rounder at this point.

    As for the SF pick, I definitely hope it is a defensive prospect. I really don't know if it will be Landry, but I hope it is something that can help our defense out.

    All what Peterson did though is break a collarbone. It isn't like a torn ACL where it could really effect the rest of his career.

    they both are.
    he's been DOMINANT this year. EASILY the best CB in this draft based on his play.
    what

    Yes he has been very productive but that is not what the draft is about. It is about potential. There are more than a few DB's with more potential than him and chances are guys like McCauley are gonna light it up at the combine and will warrant a higher pick that Hughes.

    For example, there is Elvis Dumervil. He was super-productive in college but was never really considered to be a top-pick because his athleticism isn't all that great. That's kind of how I view Hughes.
