1st round- Jake Long OT Michigan (assuming we have the 3rd pick) or

Matt Ryan QB Boston College (if we have anything lower)

--Great logic and great choices. It will be tough to pass on Ryan, but if Long has a good combine, it would make sense for this pick. McFadden may be available, which makes the choice even tougher.Personally, i still think we "reach" and grab Ryan, who may start from day one.

2nd round(LONG)- Red Bryant DT Texas A&M

2nd round(LONG)- Tashard Choice RB Georiga Tech

2nd round(RYAN)- Gosder Cherilus OT Boston College (kind of a reach)

2nd Round(RYAN)- Ray Rice RB Rutgers

--I like the latter picks better. Cherilus was badly affected by the move to zone blocking at BC. I still wouldn't be suprised to see him as a first rounder. He is an instant starter. Or better yet, sign Flozell Adams, keep Weiner at RT and move Cherilus inside at Guard (forney's place) for a year. Instantly upgraded OL.

--Rice will be a stud. I had him in a mock. He'll slip because of height and weight--which aren't much off of emmit smiths' height and weight coming off of college. Him and Norwood, and Snelling (for really tough short yardage) would be a nice trio.

3rd round(LONG)- Chad Henne QB Michigan (He was very impressive the other day against Florida and looked like a great leader) but im not sold on him yet, so i considered picking Joe Flacco QB Delaware here also

3rd round(LONG)- Jonathan Goff ILB Vanderbilt

3rd round(RYAN)- Jeremy Leman ILB Illinois

3rd round(RYAN)- Trevor Laws DT Notre Dame

Again, i like the latter picks. Law has had a great year, despite a miserable Notre dame season. You may have reached for Leman a bit, but the combine will let us know for sure. I like Goff better either way

4th round- Brandon Coutu K Georgia (this guy has a monster leg)

--Some will say we reach, but i don't care. He's also a k/o specialist which will save stud punter Koenen's leg a bit more.

5th round- Darius Hill TE Ball State

Nice pick, actually.

6th round-Brandyn Dombrowski OG San Diego State

Good depth pick. I still think Quarterman may make the roster next year as well.

7th round- Matt Kroul DE Iowa

sure, why not

7th round- Patrick Carter WR Louisville (this guy runs a 4.3)

if he runs 4.3 he won't last, despite the lack of college production. Georgia tech transfer, i think?

COMMENTS? CONCERNS?

Great overall mock, particularly the top 4 picks--the last picks are guesswork anyway. I think we go Ryan as much for image, as anything else. Good clean kid, handsome...etc... But getting an OT in the 2nd like Cherilus and Rice in the second would provide instant contributors

I like the Ray Rice and Chad Henne picks. I've been a big Ray Rice fan. He basically carried a team that was considered a laughing stock of the NCAA on his back and made them credible. I also like picking QB's later than the first round. Drew Brees was a 2nd, Schaub was a 4th, etc. It's less pressure because while the expectations are still high, the media, front office, and fans tend to have a little more patience during the learning curve.

thamill, no disrespect but your argument for beyond first round pick qbs doesn't hold water when you look at the Mannings (peyton), Rivers and the qbs in the HOF (overwhelmingly first rounders) . Bust potential is in every round, simply magnified in top 5. Schaub was a first round talent that had injury concerns. Guess what as a starter, he's been injury prone so far. Nice talent, but will he hold up? Brees had concerns w/ height, and it was problematic for a few years in San Diego until Ken Cameron and Sean Payton started moving the pocket for him.

The year Brady was picked, Gino Toretta was like a third rounder--terrible draft for QBs. Bulger and Brady and Redman are the sole leftovers

Its all a risk regardless of round. You draft the best guy for your team (based on potential) and hope it falls in place.
