    The master of the draft has started to post his thoughts/board/etc. I'll do my best to provide links and any relevant information.

    Combine coverage:

    Top 10:

    Nothing that graet yet, but after the owners meetings he should start to write more draft stuff. For those of you who don't know; Goose bases his mock's/Top 100 off of information he gets from talking to scouting department around the NFL; not from watching tape. Usually he has the most accurate of teh media mocks, and he almost always neails the Top 10 picks. He may be teh best draft expert today.

    Edit: If a mod could fix Gosselin's name please that would be great.

    I like the top 10. Jarrett is the only one I dont agree 100% with.

    Kastofsna, what does your top 10 look like, since Gosselin's is "not very good?"

    I'm looking forward to Gosselin's first mock, which I don't think has been
    published yet ?
    He is one of the most accurate at predicting who drafts who and
    when.

    Goose's Top 10 by position:

    http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/spt/football/nfl/draft/gosselin_rankings.html

    Surprises: Chris Henry is the 4th RB, Tony Ugoh is listed as the 4th OT, James Marten is the 10th OT, Marshal Yanda is not listed as a top 10 OT or OG, Leroy Harris as the #2 OC, Quincy Black at the 6th ILB, Desmond Bishop at the 8th OLB, Chris Houston is the #4 rated CB, Tanard Jackson is the #5 spot, no Micheal Johnson or Josh Gattis on the safety list.

    Good reads about...stuff:

    Rick will be writing his first mock this weekend. I'll do my best to find a Dallas Morning News, but hopefully it should be on-line by Monday as well.

    I was shocked when I saw that Michael Bush was the #10 RB?!?!?! What did I miss? I think he's got to be at least in the top 5 RBs. Gattis and Johnson should also definately be on there. And I think Steve Smith should be higher.

    Gosselin's first mock

    Wow. Peterson to the Lions? Calvin Johnson to the Browns? Haven't seen that in any other mocks.

    Texans go d-line in the 1st round for the 3rd consecutive draft.

    No sleepers in the 1st round. They are who we thought they were.

    I highlited two that seem to be moving up versus being drafted in the second round so i would consider them a reach because of other players not drafred. Meaning players drafted that are not BPA versus BPAw/Need.

    Amobi Okoye is an intriguing pick.

    Doesn't make me jump up and down, but it definitely could turn into a gold star choice.

    Revis, Nelson and Brown are guys that I would consider if we dpn't go for Okoye.

    FOUR consecutive years if you include the debacle that was the jason babin trade (babin, travis johnson, mario ... okoye?). our last three drafts is simply more than enough for me to want to address any other position but the d-line. our eldest first rounder is babin who only has 3 years as a pro (and only one as a DE), so we're far from screaming bust about the whole unit when it's that young. it's time to work on the rest of the team.

    Very interesting that he does not have Kalil going in the first round. Chris Houston at 26.

    I hope we can find a trade partner in the early to mid 20's and pick up a second rounder to go after Kalil. If somehow we could swing those two guys it would be a boondoggle of epic proportions. Very unlikely, but I dare to dream because I am silly like that.

    I definately can live with Amobi Okoye he should be a run stuffing Tackle to start. He is only 20 so his upside is his greatest strength.

    Griffin went #26 in scouts.com mock. Draftdaddy.com's mock also has Gonzalez going to the Chargers in the 1st. Again, not what one would call sleeper picks in the 1st round. Like a John McCargo last year, Chris Spencer in '05, or Jason Babin in '04.

    run stuffing will likely be his big weakness early in his career. The big over sized NFL Guards will likely be able to push him around in the run game till he gets a bit bigger. His interior pass rushing skills will be his strength.

    I'd much rather have Okoye than Branch .

    I can see Okoye being a solid 315 in a couple of years .

    I can see Branch looking like TJ's much bigger brother .
