1. Miami Chris Long DE Virginia

Protection For Orlando Pace and Alex Barron

3. Oakland Darren McFadden RB Arkansas

Nothing helps a young QB like a strong running game

4. Kansas City Glenn Dorsey DT LSU

His presence will make Jared Allen that much better

Mike Smith knows the value of stud DTs

6. NY Jets DeSean Jackson WR Cal

Coles is old, Cotchery is slow, Jackson is neither

7. NE Patriots Mike Jenkins CB South Florida

(f/sf) Asante Samuel s heir(or is it hair) apparent

8. Baltimore Matt Ryan QB Boston College

McNair is old and Boller hasn t gotten it done

An upgrade over FA Justin Smith

10. New Orleans Derrick Harvey DE Florida

Charles Grant struggled to get to the QB

11. Buffalo Kenny Philips S Miami, Fla

12. Denver Sam Baker OT USC

The perfect replacement for the retired Matt Lepsis

Another bookend to go with Julius Peppers

14. Chicago Brian Brohm QB Louisville

Griese is old and Grossman hasn t gotten it done

15. Detroit Leodis McKelvin CB Troy

Lions need help in the secondary

16. Arizona Ryan Clady OT Boise St

The sky s the limit for this big man

17. Minnesota Malcom Kelly WR Oklahoma

Time to give up on Troy Williamson

18. Houston Rashard Mendenhall RB Illinois

Should compliment Schaub, Daniels, and Johnson

19. Philadelphia Limas Sweed WR Texas

Big WR should be a big target for McNabb

20. Tampa Bay Keith Rivers OLB USC

Will be groomed to take over for Derrick Brooks

21. Washington James Hardy WR Indiana

Finally the Redskins have a WR taller than 5 10

22. Dallas Reggie Smith S Oklahoma

(f/cle) Roy Williams is a major liability in coverage

At 6 6 340lbs, he fills the mold of Steelers O-Lineman

Another weapon for Vince Young

1. Sedrick Ellis DT USC

An experienced starter from a top program

A very idealistic top 5, I couldn't be happier by landing Ellis at 5. However, I don't necessarily agree with a lot of your picks outside the top 5, especially that high for DeSean Jackson.

As for the rest of the Falcons draft, I think a better OT will be available in the 2nd round. As for the rest of it, I like it a lot.

Thanks for the input.

I believe the Falcon's will sign at least 1 OT in FA. I am hoping it is Sean Locklear or Travelle Wharton. That would make drafting an OT a lower priority. I see Newberry as another Jamar Nesbit. I think he will be a better fit inside at OG, at least for his rookie season. I agree that there will be better OTs available in the 2nd round. But, in the draft order I am using, which is the worst case scenario, Chris Williams will come off the board to Kansas City. Now if the orders for Atlanta and KC are reversed, I think we will draft Williams.

I think Williams will be gone in the 1st round. Rather than Benedict I'd rather look at Anthony Collins out of Kansas. Between Otah, Cherilus, Baker, and Collins, one or more of them will be available at that spot.

Other than that one pick I like this a lot.

yeah i agree. Benedict is a solid prospect but in such a deep OT draft we could probably do a little better. other than that it is a solid draft. not bad at all. Ellis at 5 is probably best case for us in my opinion.

BUF wont take Phillips. They have a very good S duo, they just were hurt last season. They used the #8 overall pick 2 years ago on a safety, and got their other S in the 4th round that same draft.

Good point! I forgot about Ko Simpson. He has a broken ankle, which is a serious injury for a DB. I think I originally had Phillips going to New Orleans. I can't remember why I changed that. Phillips could also go to Denver, Chicago, or Detroit.

Lynch is talking retirement and Nick Ferguson isn't much younger. Mike Brown just can't stay healthy in Chicago. Detroit just needs all sorts of help in the secondary.
