Exclamation Who Should Our Division Rivals Take?

I was just thinking earlier about this, and thought it might be interesting to see what everyone else thinks about it.

Baltimore Ravens Select 8th Over-all
My Pick: QB Matt Ryan or QB Brian Brohm from Boston College and Louisville respectively. I think that Ryan is the better of the 2, but will he be there at 8th? I dont think so, and it wouldnt suprise me to see the Ravens go RB here either.

Cincinnati Bengals Select 9th Over-all
If S Kenny Phillips is still here at this pick, the Bengals would be crazy Not to Pick him. But we all know how they are. I also think that DE and DB could be selected here.

Ravens could go QB, but Ryan should be gone and Brohm is a reach. I think they wait until round 2 to look at Henne or Flacco. They could go O line to replace Ogden (Clady or Otah) or DB needs some help (Rogers Cromartie or McKelvin)

The Bungles need to stop the run for once in the decade, so best available DT (Dorsey or Ellis) The drafted CB's the past 2 years high, so I doubt they do that. They need LB's too. Kenny Philips will be there around the top of the 2nd.

Boy Gonzo, if Kenny Phillips is still around when the Steelers select at 23rd, I would love to see him here in the Burgh' to lineup opposite Polomalu. I dont really think that Phillips will last that long myself, but maybe.

Take a look at any mock lately and you probably will not see Phillips around the 1st round. Pro football weekly, NFL.com (Mike Mayock has him as his #2 safety), CNNSI, Mel Kiper doesnt have Phillips in his top 25 list, etc.

I dont need to see him at #23 either.

O-line, D-line are were #23 should be used on.

Dont the bengals already have 2 first round picks in Jonathan Joseph & Leon Hall with Deltha O neal, Dexter Jackson also there? I doubt they draft a CB in the first.....but it is the bungles.

Yeah, no way the Bengals pick up another secondary player in the first after drafting Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall with their last two first rounders, not to mention Chinedum Ndukwe and Marvin White as safeties last year. Plus, Kenny Phillips would be a major reach at #9.

If Glenn Dorsey or Sedrick Ellis drop to them, they'll definitely pull the trigger, but that's looking more and more unlikely. Vernon Gholston would be next on their board, but he's not falling past those top 8 teams. If none of these players are there, the Bengals will either go with Phillip Merling, Derrick Harvey or Keith Rivers. My guess would be Phillip Merling.

The Ravens would love to get Matt Ryan, but he's not falling past Atlanta, and Brian Brohm is a reach at #8. Cornerback Leodis McKelvin would be my best guess, as Chris McAlister and Samari Rolle are on their last legs and the Ravens are pretty thin at this position. Also, Leodis is a good return man, which should appeal to John Harbaugh and his special teams background.

Baltimore needs a QB
Bungles need a Defensive tackle most likely

LOL... the Bungals will go defensive line with someone like Vernon Gholston or a LB like Keith Rivers. Defense up front has to be there 1st priority.

The Ravens should take Brian Brohm or Ryan Clady but I could see them taking Mike Jenkins or Leodis McKelvin.
