    Since the draft was pre-Ikegwuono fiasco, it's safe to say I sure wouldn't take him anymore.. but other than that

    1. Mendenhall is a stud and would pair with Barber to make a nasty RB duo

    2. If you saw the Dallas/Giants game, or any other late season game, it's obvious Dallas has nothing behind TO. Glenn is near the end of his career, Crayton could be a solid #2, Austin, Stanbeck, Hurd, etc. haven't shown they can be counted on but they're still young. Caldwell is a burner who can play the slot or even be a #2.

    3. I don't like Kozier at LG, and he doesn't fit the big, mauling o-line Dallas has. Mike McGlynn is a road grader who can play well on the interior with Guruode and Leonard Davis. He can also play tackle, but I think big D is all set there for now.

    4. Eddie Royal was taken as BPA in the 4th, and I think it's a steal. He could really help the return game right away and add depth behind TO, Crayton and Caldwell.

    LOL, sorry about that. I was so glad he was still on the board.

    New England Patriots

    Round 1, pick 20: Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy
    I feel I did a good job of getting out of pick 7 with no obvious pick, while moving up in the 2nd and being able to add depth in the 3rd. I was going to pick McKelvin anyway, and thank God you got it right with the poll. He's a guy that can have lots of success in our system.

    Round 2, pick 52: Ezra Butler, OLB, Nevada
    I was really high on this guy, he's athletic, produces good numbers, and is versatile. He fits in as a smaller Adaliu Thomas, a guy who can play the run and rush the passer.

    Round 3, pick 69: Steve Slaton, RB, WVU
    Kevin Faulk isn't getting any younger, but he'll still have the time to teach Slaton the tricks of the trade, so that in 2 years, the Pats will have another explosive threat out of the backfield to further anhiliate defenses.

    Round 3, pick 79: Dwight Lowery, CB, San Jose State
    This guy has 13 or 14 picks in the past 2 years, so the numbers speak for themselves. A playmaker in the secondary at the nickel position will help get the ball to Brady even faster, and maybe even halt one of those infamous late-game drives...

    Round 3, pick 82: Thomas DeCoud, S, Cal
    I see lots of potential in a player that played FS in college, yet piled up over 100 tackles as a senior and that completely lit up some guys. He also has good size and is a beast on special teams, so he can help out right away, and down the road, he may start when Rodney leaves.

    Round 3, pick 95: Beau Bell, ILB, UNLV
    More depth in the linebacking corps is a luxury. Bell is great value here, beacause of his good athleticism and instincts. He dominated in a lower conference, and I think this can translate to the NFL. He also has a great love for the game which is a major plus.

    Round 4, pick 125: Chad Rinehart, OL, Northern Iowa.
    Another small school player, whom I think can provide great depth at 4 of the 5 OL positions (LT, LG, RG, RT). He has great intensity and fits into our O-lines mentality. What he's missing is coachable, and what he has is important.

    With my 5th, 6th, and 7th, I'd go after more depth on the O-line, A TE, and Peyton Hillis, cuz he's a beast.

    stl. had a solid day rebuilding, and was primed to add much talent, including the touchdown machine colt brennan. bruce hocker was on the list, as well as jason shirley, jordan dizon, dustin keller, and kirk barton. this certainly would have helped things at the edward jones dome.

    long was a shoe-in, ellis can be a playmaker, bowman is big, goff is something of an animal to team with witherspoon, tribble was tremendous value and campbell brings both playmaking ability and tremendous character to the defense. he's like the brian leonard of defense.

    the packers really stoked their depth at skill positions, as vbsiena pointed out. by adding the two really fast receivers avery and hubbard (one big), the two strong tight ends vernon davis and john carlson (one really fast), and the monster backfield component in owen schmitt, the packers tackled explosiveness, power, speed, and future on their offense and special teams.
    i thought about taking a lineman, but no zone guys really stood out to me as more special than hubbard, and also after NE's line, which had been impenetrable all year, got blasted by the same defense which the packers mostly held in check two weeks earlier, i felt incredibly comfortable with the progress of our young linemen.

    i thought about hitting a cb with my fifth round pick, or perhaps a lb like mike humpal, depending on the corner talent then. if blackmon, bush and williams make half the improvement from this year to next as they did from last year to this, there won't be any questions about not drafting a corner. especially when the top ones were already gone by the time i picked in rd 3.

    I got a question Craig, how can you be "high" on a player you have never seen play before?

    Round 2.1 : Dominiqie Rodgers-Cromartie. Lets face everyone knew i would be taking a corner with my first pick, and i have been high on Cromartie for a lot longer than most people. I really started getting worried at the end of the first round when corners were dropping left and right, and tried to trade up. But no one bought it, and luckily my guy was still there. A big strong corner, with great speed and great hip control allowing him to transition from backpedal to a running position and accelerate.

    Round 2.2 : Phillip Merling. This was a tough call for me. I thought about Fred Davis here or picking up another corner, but at the same time Charles Grant's lack of production last season really worried me. I made a trade for Tully Banta-Cain to play a back up defensive end as insurance, but Merling is a far superior insurance policy. Now if Grant fail to produce again, i can replace him. It would suck to sit that much money on the bench, but you do what you have t o in order to win.

    Round 3 : Chad Henne. This may have shocked some people, but the Saints have no depth behind Brees. Brees has had shoulder issues in the past, and he was horrible the first half of the season accounting for more picks than TD's which made it a hard playoff push in what was a very win-able division for this team. Brees has 4 years remaining on his contract, and if i am lucky in 2 or 3 years Henne will be pushing for the starting job, and possibly making Brees expendable before the final year of his contract, or a less priorty to re-sign at the end of it.

    No fourth round pick, but with the offseason trades i made bringing in Jonathan Vilma and DeWayne Robertson from New York along with Tully Banta-Cain and Brandon Moore to play OLB and adding some more competition at safety with the additions of Greg Wesley and Jim Leonhard (Leonhard also doubles as a KR allowing me to keep my fragile RB away from it). I think i have positioned this tema to make a play off push.

    Skins

    RD 1. Derrick Harvey. I don't like him and wanted Philip Merling but went with the sexy pick... Bleh

    RD 2. Charles Godfrey. With springs probably gone Godfrey will be a big part of our D for a long time

    RD 3. Albert. Our OG's are old so I needed another one.

    One thing I didn't like was that our 4th and 5th rounders were taken prematurely. The Pete Kendal trade was dependant on the number of snaps he played turning that pick into a 4th rounder next year. The TJ Duckett trade was for a low 3rd rounder or the equivalent which we paid off with our 3rd last year. I really wish that you all would get the correct information before taking picks.

    Let's see what I can get:

    Round 1 Pick 11- Strong Side Linebacker Dan Conner is a great linebacker prospect and the best Strong Side Prospect in the draft. I have Two guys on my team, one of which is 36 and has one year left in his career and the other is a backup period. Even if he only learns from Willie McGinnist this year McGinnist is only a 2 Down player and Conner is too much of an improvement to let slip.

    Round 2 Pick 56: Defensive Tackle Red Bryant is a good run stuffer, athletic enough to run down Running Backs on the outside, has god endurance, is a good pass rusher, and smart enough to adjust to the game. Instant upgrade.

    Round 3 Pick 75: Defensive End Kendall Langford is strong, big, smart, a good run stuffer and pass rusher. I believe if he had played for a bigger school he would have been a Middle First Rund Selection and I feel blessed to be able to get two players the quality of Bryant and Langford in the same draft to play on my new and improved defensive line.

    Round 3 Pick 87: Wide Reciever Steve Johnson was a highly criticized pick. His numbers speak for themselves but what caught my eye was that he was a #2 reciever with good hands and huge stats. He is content with doing his job and letting others be the headliners and that is what I need (I have Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow for the ra ra). I feel I get a more athletic Joe J in this guy and he will be able to learn for a year and then help improve my offense from a Top 5 offense to hopefuly a Top 3 while quietly doing a tremendous job.

    In all assessment I took care of 4 of 5 needs and did it with high quality, high character players. Langford and Johnson flew under the radar dispite their abilities and I decided to nab them while I could. Bryant is a Top 4 Defensive Tackle and Conner is the top Middle/Strong Side Linebacker in the draft.

    I believe that my draft was a Top 5 draft due to the quality and the character of the players I chose.

    because according to you he's not a great fit in a 3-4?

    If you needed a NT in round 1 how come you didn't draft Pat Sims at #10?

    Round 1 - Chris Long. No brainer I got my #1 on my big board. The question now becomes Hybrid DE/OLB or 3-4 DE. Hmm training camp can decide that one. Extremely pleased he fell to 6

    Round 1 - Quentin Groves. Yea yea I know this was an unpopular pick. I put myself in a spot I really didn't want to be in when I traded up from pick #36 in round 2 to pick 10 in round 1. The trade at the time gave me the value I was looking for when I traded Vilma and DRob so it made sense. I also thought I could trade back from 10 to get a late 1st and maybe a late 2nd. Well of course no one wanted to give up anything to move up to 10. Seriously the best offer I got was trade like 8-10 spots back and a 5th rounder! wtf. Anyway I couldn't find a trade partner and couldn't justify value at this spot. I considered Clady but didn't want to draft that high for a RT on my team, didn't make sense. I know Groves is raw and would have been there most likely in the 2nd round if I didn't trade, but pending the combine he should be moving up the boards. I could have taken Harvey at this spot but don't know much about him.

    Round 3 - Roy Schuening I thought he was the best OG on the board. Plays with a tenacity and doesn't take plays off. I would consider Albert if I was drafting again. Would be starting LG right away

    Round 4 - Heath Benedict. I was happy he was around for me. WOuld be competing to start at RT right away and if nothing else makes solid depth on our depleted line.

    Round 5 - Looking at a big boy at NT. Frank Morton maybe. Disappointed that Rubin was picked. I should have tried to package my 5th rounders to move up for him, but apathy's a *****

    Maybe another RB for depth, another WR or TE in rounds 6 and 7 for depth

    I wanted Eric Young, I wasn't very happy when you took him . As for ARZ, I'll comment on the first two picks, even though I didn't make them.

    J. Stewart - Ehh, I'm not a huge fan. RB is a need, but ARZ needs a cornerback and a defensive end more than a running back.

    J. King - Right position, wrong player. ARZ needed to go cornerback, but ther were way better corners out there.

    J. Jones - This ended up being my only pick for them. The Cards needed a hybrid for their 34, and Jones was the top one available.

    Calais Campbell-DE-Traded Kelsay, I thought I had a done deal trad for Lawson but nope, If I would have know that I might have picked Rivers here.
    Andre Woodson-QB-Going after Rivers, picked 1 spot ahead, so went with best value.
    Tony Hills-LT-Hills is going to be my back-up LT
    Eric Young-OL-Young is going to be my back-up at LG and 2nd back-up at RG and RT
