With the Kessler pick, I'm sure that Cleveland was in danger of getting two Millen grades in one Draft.. Has it ever been done before? Two Millens in one Draft? Anyway, I'm really proud of the Bears and Jaguars; they seem to know what they are doing. The Colts have greatly improved also; job security on a short leash works wonders sometimes. What about Romeo Okwara out of Notre Dame (3-4 DE)? Could this kid from Nigeria be a good pick? Also could the fall of Andrew Billings be explained? Instead of Niagra Falls and the 4 falls of Buffalo, we have the Billings falls.
Good results overall yesterday in sports. MLB: Closed and won a par with the Cubs -1.5 RL -135. Got another win win par with Balt game over and Seattle last night. I win two start up par plays..thank you Mets game Over and Rays game Under. Not posted (must have skipped it) but I do lose one par with the Under in the Cards game. NBA: Won another basketball teaser with Portland -2 last night...(Whew!) NHL In a well played game I lose a par with the Blues loss, albeit slightly hedged to take some of the sting out of the defeat. Congrats to winners and back later with some plays.
Oakland Raiders: Chris Henry, RB, Arizona
Al Davis loves speed and needs a running back for the future.
Brandon Mebane, DT, California
Help for Detroit's pitiful defensive front.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Usama Young, CB, Kent State
The Buccaneers appear to be interested in this underrated prospect from Kent State.
Cleveland Browns: Michael Bush, RB, Louisville
The Browns need a long-term solution at running back. Michael Bush, a huge injury risk, is worth a shot in the fourth round.
San Francisco 49ers: Chad Nkang, ILB, Elon
The 49ers don't have much talent at inside linebacker.
Arizona Cardinals: Walter Thomas, NT, NW Mississippi Community
A huge nose tackle for Arizona's new 3-4 defense.
Ray McDonald, DE, Florida
Minnesota registered just 30 sacks last year, as no one on the team accumulated more than 5�.
Houston Texans: Sabby Piscitelli, SS, Oregon State
Glenn Earl and C.C. Brown form the league's worst safety tandem.
Doug Datish, C, Ohio State
More help for Miami's offensive line.
Atlanta Falcons: Mason Crosby, K, Colorado
The Falcons replaced 46-year-old Morten Anderson with Aaron Elling, who is 5-of-11 from beyond 40 yards in his career. Not good.
San Francisco 49ers: Jacoby Jones, WR, Lane
More receiving depth for the 49ers.
Buffalo Bills: Manuel Ramirez, G, Texas Tech
The Bills have no depth behind Derrick Dockery and Duke Preston.
Green Bay Packers: Kevin Boss, TE, Western Oregon
Bubba Franks has gotten progressively worse over the past few years, so the Packers could be looking for a tight end early in the draft.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Stewart Bradley, OLB, Nebraska
Value pick for the Jaguars; Stewart Bradley's the best player available at this point.
Cincinnati Bengals: Chansi Stuckey, WR, Clemson
With Chris Henry suspended for eight games, the Bengals' No. 3 receiver position is open to Glenn Holt and Tab Perry.
Tennessee Titans: Dan Bazuin, DE, Central Michigan
It�s amazing the Titans nearly qualified for the playoffs without a legitimate pass rush.
New York Giants: David Clowney, WR, Virginia Tech
With Amani Toomer's career quickly coming to an end, the Giants need a legitimate No. 2 receiver.
St. Louis Rams: Leroy Harris, C, N.C. State
Andy McCollum, St. Louis� starting center, turns 37 in June.
Carolina Panthers: Michael Okwo, MLB, Stanford
The injured reserve is Dan Morgan's second home. A decent backup is required.
Pittsburgh Steelers: David Irons, CB, Auburn
Ike Taylor signed a huge contract last year but was benched during the course of the 2006 season.
Seattle Seahawks: Fred Bennett, CB, South Carolina
Seattle seriously can't afford to start signing cornerbacks off the street again in 2007.
Atlanta Falcons: Rufus Alexander, OLB, Oklahoma
With Keith Brooking moving inside, the Falcons need some depth at outside linebacker.
Dallas Cowboys: Keenan Carter, NT, Virginia
Some depth behind Jason Ferguson is needed; Ferguson turns 33 in November.
New Orleans Saints: Courtney Brown, CB, Cal Poly-SLO
As one e-mailer pointed wrote to me, "You must know that the Saints have no CB depth and yet you do not pick a second CB in the fourth round. I feel that
this is unwise. I do expect the Saints to draft two corners, both of whom will play in 2007."
San Francisco 49ers: Travarous Bain, CB, Hampton
Nate Clements was signed, but depth is still needed.
New Orleans Saints: Baraka Atkins, DE, Miami
Baraka Atkins will provide the depth at defensive end that the Saints currently lack.
Indianapolis Colts: Marshal Yanda, G/OT, Iowa
The Colts have only three guards on the depth chart.
New England Patriots: Tim Shaw, OLB, Penn State
The Patriots satisfied most of their needs this offseason, but their reserves at outside linebacker leave much to be desired.
Tennessee Titans: Brannon Condren, SS, Troy State
More help at defensive back for a secondary that hasn't been able to stop the pass for years.
San Diego Chargers: Garrett Wolfe, RB, Northern Illinois
Just in case Michael Turner goes elsewhere.
Chicago Bears: Brandon Myles, WR, West Virginia
Muhsin Muhammad turns 34 in May. This could be his final season with the Bears.
Indianapolis Colts: Michael Johnson, SS, Arizona
Depth replacement for free-agent Mike Doss.
Ryan McBean, DT, Oklahoma State
If the Steelers plan to transition into the 4-3, they'll need some traditional defensive tackles.
Atlanta Falcons: Mansfield Wrotto, G, Georgia Tech
Atlanta needs some larger lineman now that it is transitioning out of the zone-blocking scheme.
Baltimore Ravens: Jordan Palmer, QB, UTEP
Steve McNair played like he was 100 years old against the Colts. Ravens take Carson Palmer's younger brother.
San Francisco 49ers: Jackie Battle, RB/FB, Houston
Can play tailback and fullback, and would provide depth.
Indianapolis Colts: DeShawn Wynn, RB, Florida
Joseph Addai has never carried the load by himself.
Baltimore Ravens: Tim Duckworth, G, Auburn
Baltimore's offensive line is in shambles.
