I think Kenny Phillips is the most overlooked guy on these boards right now. While Milloy has been solid SS is going to be a big need and in the 5-8 range Phillips might have the best value. Incredibly talented.

I don't like the Glenn Dorsey pick at all.

1. The team needs a NT-type, rather than a 3-tech like Dorsey.
2. I am not even enamored with Dorsey, I think Sedrick Ellis is better.
3. The three positions the team needs are QB, RB, LT.

To think Ellis is better is foolish. He might be a better value by being picked somewhere along the top15, and Dorsey in the top5, but to say that Ellis is actually better...eh. I dont agree.

My top5 are alot different from your top5.

1. Darren McFadden
2. Brian Brohm
3. Andre Woodson
4. Jake Long
5. Matt Ryan

1.) McFadden...

Not so sure anything else matters...but my top 5 would be different than you guys...

I want a top MLB prospect...I think a guy like Vince Hall could be a great fit here.

My top 10, based on a combo of need and overall talent

1. McFadden - the only truly elite player in the draft, even if only a secondary need. If we're going to have a poor season, it's best to get an elite talent out of it.

2. Brohm - if you don't have a franchise QB, you have to take one; only a great last six games from Leftwich would obviate this need, and allow us to pick Dixon or Ainge etc. Brohm's my current favourite.
3. Ryan - likewise
4. Woodson - likewise

5. Dorsey - I know he's naturally a UT, where we are stacked, but Coleman is the wrong side of 30, and Babs is only really a pass rusher. Dorsey could play UT on run downs, next to Lewis, then move to NT on pass downs. Anderson, Babs, Dorsey and Abe rushing the passer would be sick.

6. Jake Long - he might be a very good LT; worst case scenario, he'll be a superb RT. If we got him, I'd move Weiner to LT (he can play both, in his own words) and start Long at RT for the first season. If he shows the feet to play LT, great, move him over for the second season (like Jammal Brown). If not, fine, we've got a great RT for a decade, and we can deal with LT next year.

7. Kenny Phillips - Milloy should stick around for next year, solely for leadership while our team transitions. That said, Phillips is a guaranteed stud, and will be able to contribute gradually as he learns under Milloy. Polamalu, Sanders and Reed have shown the impact a stud S can have.

AT THIS POINT, VALUE AND NEED DON'T REALLY MESH; FORTUNATELY (well, sort of), I DOUBT WE PICK OUTSIDE THE TOP 7.

8. Malcolm Jenkins - Only a need if Hall departs, but has the potential to be a real stud, and isn't the a-hole that Hall is.

9. Ryan Clady - If he comes out, and puts up a good combine performance, he could just about work his way up to the top 10. It's arguable that he's the only guy who clearly has the athleticism to be a franchise LT; but he's not really had a great year, so I can't put him much higher.

10a. Chris Long - Not a need at all, but the value is too good at this point. Abraham has not quite shaken off his man of glass tag, and is getting on a bit. Long would be a great two-way end, and he and Anderson would be an elite (and interchanging) pairing for a long time.
10b. Calais Campbell - See above.

(Note: I don't have Baker ranked, because he's just not big enough to fit the scheme. If he's there in the second, we might reconsider and get him on the 'roids (joke.ish.), but not with our first.)

Oh, and I don't fancy a top 10 overall MLB this year. We need Brooking's leadership for one more year to help the transition (like Milloy). So either we draft a MLB later (like Moffitt or Gooden), and give him a year to learn, or grab one of the elite guys next year, and plug him straight in.

Incidentally, I think Laury and Mau will be in the 09 draft rather than this year.

Jake Long got beat on the outside a couple of times today against Wisconsin.
