    1 Miami (1-13) Matt Ryan QB Boston College
    Note: There are many holes to fill but why not start by picking up a franchise quarterback like Ryan?
    2 Atlanta (3-11) Darren McFadden RB Arkansas
    Note: Where would Adrian Peterson land if one could repeat the 2007 draft? Our guess is higher than 8th and McFadden could be just as dominant.
    3 St. Louis (3-11) Jake Long OT Michigan
    Note: Bulger won't last another season with the current O-line in front of him. The addition of Long would help Steven Jackson too.
    4 NY Jets (3-11) Glenn Dorsey DT LSU
    Note: Many mock drafts have Dorsey going #1. He has the ability to be dominant at the next level.
    5 Baltimore (4-10) DeSean Jackson WR California
    Note: When in Baltimore's history have they had a game changing athlete at the WR position? It's a trick question...they haven't. Jackson is the top WR prospect and should make an immediate impact.
    6 Kansas City (4-10) Sam Baker OT USC
    Note: The Cheifs are desperate for help on their O-line. Baker is a top prospect that would be a great pick at #6.
    7 New England (from SF 4-10) Calais Campbell DT Miami (FL)
    Note: The Patriots are in a prime position to add a young stud to an already dominant defense. Campbell should help solidify the D-line for years to come.
    8 Oakland (4-10) Early Doucet WR LSU
    Note: It's time to put some playmakers around their #1 overall draft choice. Doucet has loads of talent and would be a great fit.
    9 Chicago (5-9) Kenny Phillips S Miami (FL)
    Note: The impulse for many is to stick Chicago with a QB here. McNabb will be a Bear and Phillips will team up with Mike Brown to make a great safety tandem.
    10 Cincinnati (5-9) James Laurinaitis ILB Ohio State
    Note: Laurinaitis is the top prospect at linebacker in the 2008 draft. Green Bay's tackling improved dramatically after adding AJ Hawk with the #5 pick in 2007. Expect the same results here.
    11 Arizona (6-8) Malcolm Jenkins CB Ohio State
    Note: Jenkins is a versatile talent who should immediately upgrade the Cardinals secondary.
    12 Philadelphia (6-8) Chris Long DE Virginia
    Note: Highly touted Long should provide a legitimate pass rush for the Eagles in 2008.
    13 Detroit (6-8) Vernon Gholston DE Ohio State
    Note: No, Detroit will not draft another wide receiver...we don't think. Then again...nah, talented Gholston will make an immediate impact.
    14 Denver (6-8) Keith Rivers OLB USC
    Note: Denver is desperate for a tackler and that's exactly what Rivers is.
    15 Carolina (6-8) Brian Brohm QB Louisville
    Note: Brohm has slipped in many mock drafts but he should fall no lower than here to the Panthers.
    16 Houston (7-7) Dan Connor OLB Penn State
    Note: With Mario up front and Connor roaming behind him the Texans defense could be more than respectable in 2008.
    17 Washington (7-7) Limas Sweed WR Texas
    Note: The Redskins need to continue to surround Jason Campbell with grade A talent. Sweed is a step in the right direction.
    18 Buffalo (7-7) Frank Okam DT Texas
    Note: Buffalo could use more talent on both the offensive and defensive line. Okam is a highly touted prospect who should make a difference.
    19 New Orleans (7-7) Antoine Cason CB Arizona
    Note: One thing you can bet on before any season starts...the Saints pass defense will not be good. Peyton would be wise to draft Cason if he falls to #19.
    20 Tennessee (8-6) Martin Rucker TE Missouri
    Note: Scrambling QB's only last so long in the NFL. Rucker can pass protect and would make a nice short yardage receiver when Young is feeling pressure.
    21 Minnesota (8-6) Mario Manningham WR Michigan
    Note: If Jackson is truly their guy then they need to add talent to their wide receiver corps. Manningham has a knack for the big play and would be a nice compliment to "All Day" Adrian Peterson.
    22 NY Giants (9-5) Steve Slaton RB West Virginia
    Note: The Giants need a young, talented running back to take the pressure off of Eli. Slaton had a stellar college career and there's no reason to think he can't excel at the next level.
    23 Dallas (from CLE 9-5) Lawrence Jackson DE USC
    Note: The playmakers are in place for the Cowboys to make a run at the Super Bowl for the next couple of years. Adding Jackson will help Dallas continue to put heat on opposing quarterbacks.
    24 Pittsburgh (9-5) Adarius Bowman WR Oklahoma State
    Note: Hines Ward is a quality wide receiver but Roethlisberger needs another offensive weapon to make a run in 2008.
    25 San Diego (9-5) Jonathan Goff ILB Vanderbilt
    Note: The offensive stars are aligned for the Chargers so expect them to take a defensive stud like Goff.
    26 Seattle (9-5) Jonathan Stewart RB Oregon
    Note: Shaun Alexander looked old in 2007 and Maurice Morris is not the answer. Selecting Stewart makes sense and would upgrade their RB situation.
    27 Tampa Bay (9-5) Ryan Clady OT Boise State
    Note: Clady has the size and athleticism to excel at the next level.
    28 Jacksonville (10-4) Mike Jenkins CB South Florida
    Note: The only ***** in the armor of the Jacksonville defense is in their secondary. Look for the Jags to fill that void with a home grown prospect.
    29 Green Bay (12-2) Eric Young OG Tennessee
    Note: The Packers have not been happy with their guard play in 2007. They will add competition and it could come in the form of Young at pick #29.
    30 San Francisco (from IND 12-2) Sedrick Ellis DT USC
    Note: Ellis is rated higher on many draft boards but I think he'll slip down to the late 1st round. With his addition the 49ers defense becomes very legitimate.
    31 Dallas (12-2) Aqib Talib CB Kansas
    Note: The Dallas secondary has it's breakdowns so look for the Cowboys to add a top rated cornerback.
    32 New England (14-0) Forfeited
    Note: Most teams cheat, but New England got caught. Since they have the #7 pick and are already deep at almost every position we don't see this as being catastrophic.
