    Who else needs a CB that is picking before us?
    What are the chances Kyle will still be there at 20?

    Pitt will be looking at a CB, so it is possible they will take him. I think Wilson will be available at 20, and I think that we will select him.

    7. Cleveland - unlikely but could go Haden causing a team like SF to take Wilson.
    13. San Francisco - Where you could see Haden go
    16. Tennessee - could but I dont think so. DE for them imo
    17. San Francisco - 2nd pick to use if they don't take one at 13 which I think they will(Haden at 13).
    18. Pittsburgh - could very well take Wilson
    19. Atlanta - unlikely but could
    20. Houston

    Charles Robinson(Yahoo Sports)Don't be shocked if Boise State's Kyle Wilson is the 1st cornerback drafted. His stock is up, & many teams like him over Florida's Joe Haden

    Yep. RT @MrMichael_Smith: He could go No. 7 RT @YahooSportsNFL: Don't be shocked if Boise State's Kyle Wilson is the 1st cornerback drafted.

    seems like both of them will be gone by the time we get to pick!

    IMO biggest threat is going to be Pitt at 18. However, I think it's possible they will be looking for OL help and Iupati is a guy that fits what they like to do. With Holmes gone they could also makes things interesting by taking Bryant.

    I think Haden playing in SEC makes him the first CB taken.

    Don't be surprised if the raiders pick Kyle Wilson.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Raiders picked Taylor Mays.

    Did you really just put Raiders and don't be surprised if they pick _____ ,together?

    Now if you put Raiders and picked a good player with good value at their spot....that'd be a real surprise.

    i'd certainly they have their eye on more than 2 guys when picking 20th. both could easily be gone, and a bunch more they weren't anticipating to be there just might. this is why i don't buy such rumors.

    If this came from "The General" he has changed his prediction and thinks that the Texans would draft McCourty over wilson per his chat & mock today.

    Tough to predict how the board falls before the Texans make their pick (unless they trade up to increase their chances of getting a bonafide stud). I for one cannot to see how this year's draft unfolds!!! My favorite weekend of the offseason by far :)

    Yes, I would like that wager. Not completely certain, but I think this is the draftnik who predicted the Texans would trade down in '07 with Denver and take Anthony Gonzalez.
    Right. This guy's "source" has Wilson as the Texans target. McClain has Mathews, then McCourty. Then Zierlein's source has the Texans liking Spiller. The closer to the draft, the less you know and the more disinformation you hear.

    I think Wilson will be the choice with Berry and Thomas off the board

    yeah, Its tough to predict and there are a lot of options that I'd be happy with and some not so much .... Its just nice not picking in the top 10 for once.
