My team was the 49ers.

1) Andre Carter - a very popular choice, in fact i believe that he was really drafted just cause the team needs a DE now... but i still believe that Walsh's man was K.Walker if he really had to listen to his heart.

2) Jamie Wilborn - the only problem i have here is that i believe that he was drafted a round earlier.. he still could have been there around the 3rd round, but i guess we really needed a LB to have some depth.. only time will tell if he was a better choice than Marshall.

3) Kevan Barlow - wasnt a surprise here, in fact all year long i've been saying that if we dont take any of the 2 backs in the 1st round, then "Barlow is a 9er".. i dont remember how many of u all would remember that tho... i just see so much R.Watters in him.

4) THOUGHT WE COULD HAVE KEPT IT
5) SAME AS FOURTH

6) Rashad Holman - talk about mix revies, this guy plays against good teams and he plays real bad against bad teams.. hopefully that it'll be a good sign for us, he's natural at safety position but i think he's got enough talent to let go of Montgomery..

6) Cedrick Wilson - really reminds me of the Colt's T.Wilkins, a fiesty lil guy.. but i just dont see him as a WR, and i really never accept that our offense goes 4-Wide.. so i would assume that he'll be here to compete for a return man, too bad B.Newcombe was chosen 2 slots in front of him or my predictions would have been right again.

6) Menson Holloway - cant really blame Walsh for drafting another pass rusher.. cause, that's all he is back in college, in fact i wont even be surprise if he leads all rookie in sack this year.. but if it was up to me, i would have taken an OL here, maybe a Tarlos Thomas.

7) Alex Lincoln - as hard as he works, he shouldnt have any problem making the team... but a special team all he is.. he could be as good London Fletcher when he use to be in the special team

7) Eric Johnson - saw him played once w/ one of them Ivy Games and he does look like he's got good hands.. i pray that he'd be our next "never heard before" Brent Jones..

My Dolphins didn pretty good I think.

Main picks:

Jamar Fletcher, CB - Many scouts said he was the "bes pure cover corner in the draft." But, his height is his handicap.

Chris Chambers, WR - They say he is a risk, but could have major upside.

Joes Huepal (Spelling), QB - Taken in the 6th, could be something... maybe.

My Colts were pretty quiet. I don't even know who they picked

I think Chambers was a great pick for the Dolphins. I don't really know why he is considered a risk.

My Packers made out pretty well in getting a solid, big WR in the third or so round and a good defensive lineman as the 10th pick.

I like the Jets. I only know they picked Santana Moss in the first round. I didn't follow my team since I know they won' be contending anytime soon...

I like Santana Moss a lot. That was a great pick for the Jets.

I know. I read your article on your site. I wish we could have got Brees. I love Purdue. Who is the Jets quarterback anyway? Still Testaverde I'm guessing...

Well the HOME team, the Colts got a good WR in the first round. I really like him and think he'll be a great help to take some pressure off of Harrison. The Colts also signed 26, yes, thats 26 Free Agents the night of the draft.

With Brees and Flutie in San Diego along with Gorin (also from Purdue) and Tomlinson I'm gonna start doing a little side cheering for them as well.

Correct. And remember, you drafted former Marshall QB Chad Pennington, as well, as few years ago. :sleepy:

We did get Keyshawn one year. Too bad he's gone now. Our top receiver is Wayne Chrebet from Hofstra University (a school like 15 min away from me).

I think the Pennington pick was just last year.

Default Here's what Saintsbook thought of the draft picks

Quote:
courtesy of Saintsbook.com's editor Will Assaf, who is NOT me, just thought I should clear that up

On Deuce McAllister

...Don't think that the Saints are preparing to ship out RB
Ricky Williams. Although McAllister is rated by most
scouts as the 8th best player in the draft, he is not going to be a full-time starter at runningback. McAllister has
extremely soft hands, super speed, and is extremely
versatile but is not very durable and is going to work best
as a combo with Ricky Williams. This is imperative,
because McAllister never was the full-time starter at Ole
Miss, nor was he completely healthy. The fact that his
durability is very questionable is the reason he slipped so
far. Had McAllister been a healthy back in college, he
might have been selected where RB LaDainian
Tomlinson was selected this year: #3 overall...
...Expect to see the Saints use McAllister in a variety of
ways. The Saints run-oriented offense will be able to put
any combination of Ricky Williams, Duece McAllister,
Chad Morton, and Terrelle Smith in the backfield.
McAllister could also line up as a wide receiver or slot
receiver, and will probably be on the field to return kickoffs...

On Sedrick Hodge
...Hodge is a highly rated player who was another high-value
pick for the Saints. 6-3, 230, Hodge plays very well against
both the pass and the run. Some speculate that he may be
used as a safety in the NFL. His strongpoints are a very
impressive 4.42 40 speed to go along with a great overall
athletic package. His weaknesses are a slow run/pass
reaction time that needs to be developed, but he has great
football skills to be a weakside linebacker...

On Kenny Smith
...Smith is a La'Roi Glover clone with
excellent speed and quickness but little ability
to hold two lineman up against the run. Some think he may
be a tweener DE/DT but has the potential to become a
good defensive tackle just like Glover himself. Is very
quick but doesn't have incredible track speed...

On Moran Norris
...FB Moran
Norris is thought by many to be
the best pure blocking fullback
in the draft, and should be a solid starter or
backup should FB Terrelle Smith not return
to full strength. Norris is a phenomenally strong athlete and
despite some fumbling history he could yet prove to be a
dangerous open-field runner...

On Onome Ojo
...WR Onome Ojo (ah-nah-may oh-joe) out of UC-Davis is a
giant of a receiver at 6-4, 200, who also has
4.62 track speed. He is a big, physical receiver
and the massive target the Saints are looking
for. A lean player but with lots of muscle and
room to build. Despite his size he ran a 4.58 on the same
type of indoor track he'll be playing on in the Superdome.
He has little experience so far and will need to become a
student of the game, but with his size, huge hands, and
surprising downfield speed he could be a real weapon with
time and teaching...

On Ennis Davis
...Shows good awareness and recognition.
Oftentimes Davis' size (not all musculature, you know)
would wear him down late in games. Sharing time by
rotating in and out with the starters Davis should be fresh
enough to use his excellent quickness and surprisingly
mobility as a good backup to [Norman] Hand...

Default Philly Eagles

Round 1: Freddy Mitchell, WR, UCLA
Round 2: Quinton Caver, LB, Arkansas
Round 3: Derrick Burgess, DE, Miss. St.
Round 4: Correll Buckhalter, RB, Nebraska
Round 5: Tony Stewart, TE, Penn. St.
Round 6: AJ Freely, QB, Oregon
Trade: #3 & #6 to Miami this year for #2 next year.

Mitchell was a great #1 pick up. We needed a #1 WR, and we had a low first round pick. Through just one mini-camp, Mitchell has already proved that he's going to be really productive this year, especially being that we cut our #1 and #2 WRs from last year (Charles Johnson and Torrance Small ... sad, isn't it). He's a bit of a trash talker, but a good guy at heart, has the skills to back it up, and is a quick learner.

Caver was a really good pick at #2. He's a little bit of a project, but will fit nicely in the Eagles system. He ruled the SEC last year in the LB spot, single-handedly carrying his team with 10-20 tackles a game. He's a big, fast LB, who just needs to strengthen up a tad. Our LB crew is strong now, just imagine what it could be with him in the line-up. He is also an insurance policy if Jeremiah Trotter decides to leave, which I doubt he will.

Burgess at #3 was a really weird pick to many fans. He's a small, productive DE, like almost every other DE on our roster. Hopefully he'll turn out to be more of a Hugh Douglas than a Mike Mamula.

Buckhalter at #4 was a need pick. Somewhere in this draft, the Eagles HAD to take a RB, as an insurance policy for Duce Staley, who sat out most of last year with a very serious injury. Buckhalter who shared time at RB last season, should be a good RB to compliment Duce, Brian Mitchell, and the other Eagles RBs, especially with his 7+ yards per carry average.

Tony Stewart at #5 was a nice pick, but has a Pro-Bowler ever been as unnoticed as the Eagles' #1 TE Chad Lewis? Still, Stewart should hopefully step in as a really good pass catching TE. He still needs to learn how to block better though, before he'll get real playing time.

AJ Feeley ... um ... practice squad? Or are they releasing Ron Powlus / Koy Detmer to make room for him to carry around the clipboard?

Then, in a superb move, we traded a #3 and a #6 to Miami for a #2 next year, improving our position in next year's draft.

Overall, a really good draft for a good team. Nothing excitingly special, but a good draft overall.
