In my opinion, I feel you have a lot of picks in the appropriate spots. However, Arizona is high on Mendenhall but he'll be snatched by Detroit at # 15. Arizona has other pressing needs so I do not see them reaching for Stewart this high. They can easily snatch one of the best corners of the draft here which is another weakness for them. That being said, Dallas will still take Felix at # 22, leaving Stewart available at #23. Then again, this is what makes draft day so fun! You just don't know what anybody else is going to do until the announcement at the podium. (Except for Miami at # 1)

Sure? I think they'll jump on a WR @ 15

I think before we draft a RB in this draft we see if gary russell can fill that power back role because he was a pretty solid back in college.

True. People seem to forget that he was also a 1000 rusher in split duty at Minnesota.

With Alexander out in Seattle, I wonder if they will look to trade up? They have GOT to be interested in Stewart, especially since he's local.

likes i said.. us drafting will be affected now by the cheifs having the vikings number 1 pick... they need help in a lot of areas and them drafting there and number 5 could hurt us a lil.. like maybe a lineman could of dropped to us.. but now the chiefs might/most likely take him
