Default Re: Justin Harrell DT

well, it looks like he's going in the 1st round. heres alot ob buzz on him in 1 mock draft and kirwan normally doesnt pull stuff like this out of his ass. its possible harrell has more value than branch (whos stock is said to be dropping)

13. **St. Louis: Leon Hall, CB, Michigan -- Signing Lenny Walls and Mike Rumph has not solved the Rams' secondary issues. They probably regret letting defensive tackle Ryan Pickett go and this pick offers a chance to recover, but unless the Rams get ahead of the 49ers to get Adam Carriker, they select Hall. There might be some discussion about fast-rising defensive tackle Justin Harrell from Tennessee, who demonstrated he's healthy from his bicep injury with 31 reps on the bench-press test.

14. Carolina: Greg Olsen, TE, Miami (Fla.) -- If the Panthers wanted Willis, they would have moved up, but the Carolina decision-makers seem very impressed with Olsen. The Panthers need a linebacker but this crop does not impress them enough. Olsen would help solve Carolina's third-down problems and also help Steve Smith and Keyshawn Johnson. If Carolina trades underachieving defensive tackle Kris Jenkins, then taking Justin Harrell here and a tight end at No. 45 could work.

15. Pittsburgh: Justin Harrell, DT, Tennessee -- Harrell is now weighing in at 314 pounds and his workout has NFL people talking first round. He can play defensive end in the 3-4 scheme and can always move to tackle in the 4-3 if the Steelers ever go in that direction down the road.

18. **Cincinnati: Darrelle Revis, CB, Pittsburgh -- The Bengals want a corner or a safety. Revis is a solid pick and the Bengals will love the 'solid citizen' as much as the player. There will be some discussion about the linebackers left on the board and there is also some disappointment the Steelers took Harrell.

23. Kansas City: Ted Ginn Jr., WR, Ohio State -- The Chiefs really want a great defensive tackle at this spot but the draft board says wait because the best are gone. A move up for Okoye is too difficult to get done and the late rise of Harrell hurt their ace in the hole, so the pick here is Ginn. If Ginn does fall to the Chiefs, it will be a big day for the Chiefs offense. He will push the field and create underneath lanes for tight end Tony Gonzalez. He also has eight touchdowns on kick returns, and Dante Hall isn't the player he once was, which is why trade rumors surround him. Guard Ben Grubbs sure would look good here now that Will Shields announced his retirement.
