The NFL is the only sport which is year around. First they have the Preseason, fallowed by the Regular Season, Post Season, NFL Draft/ Free Agency, and finally Mini Camp. For true fan the NFL never ends. The NFL draft has become such a big event, especially this year. I too will act like NFL draft expert and give my take on the draft.
1) Houston Texans: Bush, Reggie, RB USC
The Houston Texans have major holes on the offensive line and defense. Reggie Bush is the best athlete to come out of collage football since Michael Vick. Even if the Texans trade down the number one collage football player in the country is Reggie Bush. I’ve seen many mock draft sights suggesting the Texans should trade down. I feel Reggie is dynamic to pass up. How many times do you get a chance pick up a player of this caliber? Other option: Trade down. Reggie Bush will be the number one pick.
2) New Orleans Saints: Leinart, Matt, QB USC
Matt had the opportunity to leave early and would have been the number one pick in 2005. He’s got great intangibles he can lead a team, and knows how to win big games. Yet he seems a little slow in his delivery. Know one can predict how good a QB will be in the NFL, but Matt is a hard worker. I don’t believe Matt’s “upside” is as good as other QB’s due to his lack of mobility and overall arm strength. Other option: Vince Young
3) Tennessee Titans: Young, Vincent, QB Texas
Vince Young is freak of nature he’s big strong and fast. I feel he will be a good quarter back in the NFL in the right system. I personally don’t think his arm delivery will cause him to fall in the draft. The thing that worries me about Young is his running consistency. In the NFL Young won’t be able to run away from defenders like he did at Texas. He’s going to get hit, and the way he responds will be key, can he hold up to physical game of the NFL? Personally I would rather see the Titans take Ferguson who is second best player in this draft. Other option: D'Brickashaw Ferguson, or Jay Cutler.
4) New York Jets Ferguson: Cutler, Jay, QB Vanderbilt
Every year an unknown QB finds his way into the top 10 this year it’s Jay Cutler. The Jets have a new coaching staff which usually means whole sale changes. Also with Chad Pennington large salary it maybe time for a change. Cutler is rising up everyone draft charts after a great senior bowl, and after combine may solidify a top 5 selection. Other option: D'Brickashaw Ferguson
5) Green Bay Packers Ferguson, D'Brickashaw, OT Virginia
The Pack can go many different ways with their pick. They have needs at both defense, and offense. I think Ferguson would be a great pick for the pack, he could be protecting Aaron Rodgers (there first pick of 2005) for the next 10 year. He probably the most sure thing in the first round next to Bush. Ferguson should be the pick here if he is available. Other option: A.J. Hawk or Mario Williams.
6) Oakland Raiders: Williams, Mario, DE North Carolina St
Oakland has the same problem as Green Bay; they need all sorts of players, most of them on their terrible defense. So, they really just should be taking the best available defensive player. That is either Mario Williams (a dominant DE) or AJ Hawk (a dominant LB). Other option: A.J. Hawk
7. San Francisco 49ers Hawk, AJ,
The 49ers have so many holes to fill. If Jay Cutler does find a way into the top 5, the 49ers are in a good situation. The will have the opportunity to select the best LB and perhaps the best defensive player in the draft A.J. Hawk. Hawk is great player with never ending motor. Other option: Michael Huff, or Vernon Davis.
8. Buffalo Bills Ngata, Haloti, DT Oregon
Buffalo's defense was supposed to help carry them into the playoffs this year. Yeah, that didn't happen. Luckily, they did do bad enough for them to pick up the gigantic Ngata at pick eight. He should be able to jam the line of scrimmage, helping the rest of the defense stop opposing running backs. Other option: Michael Huff, or Tamba Hali
9. Detroit Lions Hali, Tamba, DE Penn St.
The Lions for sure will not be selecting another WR this year. Hali is an excellent player. He has great versatility (speed and strength), and he does not quit on plays. He runs down (and many times catches) running backs even after they pass the line of scrimmage. He is an excellent pick to help Shaun Rogers on Detroit's weak defensive line. Other option: Michael Huff
10. Arizona Cardinals Davis, Vernon, TE Maryland
The Cardinals' already have great passing attack, but a player of Davis's caliber will not fall this far without somebody jumping on him. They don't have a solid TE, and this choice would answer that concern. I feel the Cardinals need address the running back situation they could go with D. Williams or LenDale White to carry the load and balance out there offense. Other option: LenDale White, DeAngelo Williams
