The most notable change between my initial first-round projection and this one is that I have Virginia defensive end Chris Long going No. 1 overall to the Miami Dolphins. This is based on discussions with various NFL sources; however, Boston College QB Matt Ryan is still a distinct possibility to be the first pick. If Ryan goes No. 1 overall, then Long would go No. 2 to St. Louis, and Atlanta would take DT Glenn Dorsey with the third pick. The sources with whom I have spoken have no concerns about Dorsey's medical history.

As I've said before, There are links off of NFL.com that Adam Shefer directly says that we won't use our first pick for Matt Ryan. These guys simply keep saying we have to use our first pick on a Qb, no matter who it is. That's false. We are building this team from the INSIDE OUT.

We will have a team ready for our Qb when he becomes available but since we are in rebuilding mode, that would be a wasted pick.

Nobody wants a Qb with the first pick because of the MASSIVE unknowns and it could set our team back by 5+ years.
