Default Now that Long and Long are long gone....

falcons take dorsey
raiders take gholston
pats swap positions with the ravens (who select m. ryan) and then trade again, getting out of the #8 spot (possibly trading with the saints so they can take ellis).

chiefs stay where they are and take clady at #5 and best cb available at #17.

jets take mcfadden

bungles are spurned losing out on ellis and take rivers.

pats get 2 extra picks for moving down twice and still get the #1 cb at a significantly reduced price from #7 (mckelvin).

The Falcons will take Matt Ryan and the Raiders will take McFadden.....Which the Chiefs will be interested in drafting Glenn Dorsey or they might still trade down for more picks...

thats what i keep hearing. i think dorsey + flacco or brohm would be better value for the 1st 2 falcon picks vs. ryan + anyone they get with their 2nd.

everyone assumes davis will go for a senile move to make a splash and take mcfadden. they got last years jonothan stewart (m. bush) who i still think might be 1 of the leagues best kept secret.

however neither of these teams have proven to be the smartest at drafting.

And Matt Ryan it is!

He will be thrown to the wolves with no supporting cast

Falcons supposedly wanted Dorsey - I see Blank having some voice in this to put someone new as the face of the team

Ryan may be the next big thing, but I have my doubts

"I'm just proud to be a Falcon ( meaning I'm just proud to be slotted for salary & bonus as the #3 pick!)"

Hey all, long time no post!

I admit I haven't been paying attention too much this year, but I do remember that the patriots were supposed to be penalized for cheating with the loss of a first round draft pick. What gives?

Well, I guess all the "McFaddenettes" got their wish. I can't believe we took him over Dorsey... bad move.

Looking at Walter Footall's draft database,

I had to go way down on the list to find a mock draft that had the same first 5 picks and it is Sports Overload's Mock draft.

They have us taking S Tyrell Johnson, Arkansas State

Update, they are right on the first six picks now.

I don't think I like their selection for us if their prognostication continues to be correct.

hey i.c.

they had 2 1st rounders and only lost 1 of them.

silver & black- i feel your pain. davis made the senile pick. you think hed make a senile move and trade m. bush for the steelers 4th round pick? thats a steal compared to what they gave up for the patriots 4th last year

The Football Wire also has the first six picks correct. They have us taking Jeff Otah. There are a ton of mock drafts and it is amazing that there are so few who have the first 5 picks correct.
