I think the Bucks might look to take Gaines Adams. I think Adams will play DE in a 4-3 front and S. Rice is getting old.

Yeah he had tough time. But perhaps the "layoff" had something to do with his ineffectiveness (as well as that of their entire team).
But i still believe he's the best Qb coming out this year. Yes Russell is a "specimen" and has all of the tools. But in reality he's had just a single stellar season.
Brady Quinn is another with all of the physical tools. But is he "clutch" when it really matters ? (Smith had a poor showing against Florida,... but for the majority of his college career he performed at his best the "bigger" the game.)
I also think Smith's uncanny ability to "make plays", his accuracy and abilty to diagnose coverage with speed give him the edge on Quinn. (The title game being an exception as oppossed to the rule in this regard)

I could see that BlackandGold. He's (Adams) very similar to Rice in regards to stature and style of play. But if i was their GM i'd go with Okoye.

I thought you were asking WHY i didn't have Adams coming off of the board before our pick at the 15th spot. Thinking that you meant one of those teams would look for him to play as a "Simeon Rice" type End (as stated by BlackNGold earlier) in a 4-3.

1) Raiders: Calvin Johnson WR Georgia tech (Al Davis will not be sold on any of this years top Qb's with a pick this high)

2) Lions: Joe Thomas OT Wisconsin (need to get back to being able to run the ball,...will look for Drew Stanton perhaps in the 2nd)

3) Browns: Troy Smith Qb Ohio State (Pick will suprise many outside of scouts and insiders, but smith is THE best Qb available regardless of height. Could have immediate impact on offense)

4) Bucs: Amobi Okoye DT Louisville (Bucs are very thin up front with the loss of Mcfarland and likely departure of Rice. And Okoye's ability and intelligence have many regarding him as the best D-lineman of the Draft)

5) Cardinals: Justin Blaylock OT/OG Texas (With Thomas off of the board this is a no brainer. Blaylock is a "Road Grader" with the athleticism to play Guard or Tackle)

6) Redskins: Alan Branch DT Michigan (they are in shambles up front)

7) Vikings: Dwayne Jarrett WR USC (They are thin at receiver and DJ is the 1b receiver of his class)

8) Texans: Reggie Nelson S Florida ( Need safety help terribly. And though I regard Landry as the best DB let alone safety,.. the Texans will probably become enamored with Nelson's 40 time and "brain fart")

9) Dolphins: Paul Posluzny LB Penn State (Need to inject some impact youth to aging defensive unit,....Pos would be an almost perfect fit)

10) Falcons: Tedd Ginn Jr WR Ohio State (Fan outcry and Blank's coddeling of Vick will make them attempt to get him more "weapons". Ginn although undersized,.. is VERY explosive. And could make Vick actually look like a QB)

11) 49ers : Marcus Mccauley CB Fresno State (Need help at corner and Mccauley will probably put up better numbers at the combine than Hall. Not to mention he's bigger and a california product)

12) Bills: Levi Brown (Bills need help on O-line and Brown is a "battle tested" mountain of a lineman)

13) Rams: Buster Davis lb FSU (Almost perfect fit for Rams. Davis is comparable to Jon Vilma)

14) Panthers: Marshawn Lynch RB Cal (Need consistencey in the ground game and Lynch may very well be this years "Laurence Maroney")

15) STEELERS: ADRIAN PETERSON rb Oklahoma (could be one of the biggest shocks of the Draft. Peterson dropping to us because of teams drafting for need and or slight concerns about his durability.)

The raiders will take quinn

That would be awesome if that happened. I don't think we would need a RB in the 1st round but if Peterson drops to us then WOW we better take him.


It was a good overall draft

I agree.....although it wouldnt surprise me if Troy actually gets drafted by the Browns. But AP available at #15? No way.

True, but next season lets watch what he does when he has to run more than QB sneaks against some of those nasty SEC defenses.
