My first go at it this year. It’s not a perfect draft, but I think it’s a decent one. I didn’t consider any trades either. ROUND ONE1. Houston - Reggie Bush 6-0 200 Tailback USCBush will be a Texan come draft day. This kid can flat out play and will have an immediate impact in Houston. They do have more glaring needs other than tailback, but you just don't pass up on "The next Gale Sayers." In a deep OL and DL draft, they can find good value later on and in free agency.2. New Orleans - Matt Leinart 6-5 225 Quarterback USCLeinart has had a tremendous college career. He doesn’t have the physical tools of a Carson Palmer but his big game poise and intelligence make up for it. In addition he throws the football precisely and has excellent pocket presence. He reminds me very much of Tom Brady. If the Saints move to Los Angeles, Leinart will be considered a legend there (if he isn't one already).3. Tennessee - Vince Young 6-5 233 Quarterback TexasThe Titan fans I've talked to are split as to who to pick. I've heard much debate and it seems like the most likely candidates are Young (if he declares), Ferguson, Hawk or Cutler. I think they take Young if he declares. He has huge potential and will benefit from learning under McNair for a few years before taking over. He's still quite raw but has improved his passing greatly from last year. I don't necessarily like this pick (Cutler or Hawk are the better choice), but I think the Titans will buy into the Young hype. 4. N.Y. Jets - D'Brickashaw Ferguson 6-5 289 Offensive Tackle The Jets need to rebuild and it’s smart to start building the line. Ferguson has top notch athletic ability and will be a huge asset to both the pass and run game. My only concern with Ferguson is that he lacks bulk. He'll need to bulk up to about 310 or 315 or else he'll be pushed around by Defensive Tackles and Ends. 5. Green Bay - AJ Hawk 6-1 240 Outside Linebacker Ohio St. The Packers will cream their pants if they have a chance at Hawk. He's the best defensive player in the draft and reminded us just how dominant he can be at the Fiesta Bowl. Hawk will compliment Barnett and strengthen a weak Defense. The Packers will now have their own Urlacher. 6. Oakland - Mario Williams 6-7 285 Defensive End I really like this pick. Mario Williams will help an ailing Defense especially against the pass. Defensive End isn't their greatest need but there is no Safety or Linebacker worthy of this pick. If Mario can play up to his potential, the Raiders will have one heck of a player.7. San Francisco – Vernon Davis 6-3 253 Tight End MarylandNo one will be happier than Alex Smith for this pick. Davis is the best Tight End prospect in the draft and gives the 49ers a playmaker that they desperately need. It might seem like a bit of a stretch as of now, but expect Davis’ stock to skyrocket once he impresses at the combines. 8. Buffalo - Winston Justice 6-6 300 Offensive Tackle USCThe Bills need desperate help on both sides of the ball and take Justice here. He has protected Leinart's blindside and opened many holes for Bush and can play RT or LT. His stock will continue to rise and may even battle Ferguson for the top OL spot once the combines roll around. The Bills have ignored the trenches in the past few drafts which has left them with a depleted OL and DL. 9. Detroit - Marcus McNeil 6-9 335 Offensive Tackle AuburnThe Lions need help on the line and McNeil is as big and powerful as they come. He's a force with the running game and will help Kevin Jones and Co. in 2006. However, McNeil isn't as solid in pass protection and will need to improve his agility and speed to help protect whoever the QB is for the Lions next year.10. Arizona - DeAngelo Williams 5-10 217 Tailback MemphisDenny Green likes making sexy picks and will likely take DeAngelo here. Williams is a tough runner with nice speed and elusiveness. Shipp will probably get the boot and Arrington will be used as a third down back.11. St. Louis - Jimmy Williams 6-3 213 Cornerback/Safety Virginia TechAn absolute dream situation for the Rams. Their Defense is horrid and will benefit greatly with Williams helping out in the secondary. The potential is there, but Williams has a few character issues he needs to take care of first. 12. Cleveland – Chad Greenway 6-4 244 Outside Linebacker IowaThe Browns need playmakers and they get one here. Greenway has good talent with an excellent work ethic. He can drop down in coverage and blitz the Quarterback. He will need to bulk up a bit, but he’ll be a good one.13. Baltimore - Haloti Ngata 6-5 338 Defensive Tackle OregonNgata has incredible power and quickness. From the one game of the Ravens I’ve watched this year, they suck at rushing the passer. Ngata will excel in either the 3-4 or 4-3. 14. Philadelphia – Thomas Howard 6-3 240 Outside Linebacker UTEPHoward will fill in a big hole in the Eagles future. He has excellent burst of speed with a knack for making the big hit. He can cause havoc on the Quarterback and drop down in coverage. Howard is still a bit raw though, but under the right coaching he will be a very good Linebacker for years to come. 15. Atlanta – Michael Huff 6-1 205 Safety TexasThe Falcons are trying to build this team with speed and agility. Huff is quick, hard hitting and can hawk away a lot of passes. He has experience playing Corner as well. 16. Miami – Eric Winston 6-7 312 Offensive Tackle Miami (Fl) I think Saban sticks with his current Quarterbacks for one more year and will look to improve elsewhere. He continues to build the line to improve an already great running game and average pass game. Winston’s large frame and excellent technique will instantly help the Dolphins. 17. Minnesota - Laurence Maroney 5-11 205 Tailback MinnesotaThe Vikings go with the hometown kid here. They haven’t had a legitimate Runningback since Robert Smith retired. Maroney has had a productive college career and is equipped with very good vision and a ability to break tackles. 18. Dallas – Max Jean Gilles 6-4 340 Offensive Guard Georgia Gilles is a truck. If Parcells is still there, I like this pick. If they get a new coach, they could possibly draft a young Quarterback or Wide Receiver. 19. San Diego – LaRon Landry 6-2 187 Safety LSUThe Chargers could use a tackle, but won’t get a quality one here. I would like to see them solidify the Defense even more. I wouldn’t be surprised if they make at a Wide Receiver here as well. It’s a luxury they can afford. 20. Kansas City - Mathias Kiwanuka 6-7 261 Defensive End Boston CollegeI’m really torn here. The Chiefs are getting old and this may be their last year at winning the big one. If they were in rebuild mode, it would be Cutler or Holmes who are the best talent available. Ideally, they would take a Defensive Tackle here but they would be foolish to reach for one. So they take the best defensive player available, who happens to be Kiwanuka. He excels in the pass rush and will add much needed depth to a mediocre defensive line. He also has experience playing at the tackle, but will seriously need to bulk up to do so.
