    No potential 1st round picks at TE. Then he has Gresham going #21 to Cincinnati?

    Wow, Mathews ahead of Spiller. That would hurt. And I would be very surprised if Jerry Jones passed on a workout Warrior like Bruce Campbell. I also can't see Taylor Mays making it out of the 1st round. I know Gosselin's the best mocker in the business. I'm just not buying some of this.

    It's only his first one, this one and the next are about as useless as the rest of the mock drafts you see. The one he releases the day of Round 1 is the one on which his reputation has been made.

    VERY bad pick for Htown in my opinion. I would much rather see us take Iupati or McCoutry than Spiller.

    Boy ... I hope it changes dramatically ! In Gosselin's first mock, all of the prospects I had as my #1 pick, in all of my possibile scenerios, are taken before we pick ! UHHH !

    I'd love Spiller....get a hole for him to hit and he's capable of bursting through it. Make the defense react instead of reacting to the defense like we've had to do.

    I don't think he'll be there for us though.

    If Spiller is there you'd be crazy not to take him. Need meet BPA = win.

    Highest ive seen Ryan Mathews. Dont get me wrong, I like the idea of taking Mathews. I hope we have our pick of him, Wilson and Thomas.

    Spiller bounces his runs too much for my taste. We dont need a dancer. We need someone who can lower the boom and get the yards up the middle.

    I believe this first mock is based solely on need.

    Next one is about who he thinks teams should take.

    Last one is his prediction.
