1. Houston- David Carr QB Fresno St. - They will need a good QB for the future, and Carr is the perfect fit. He probably won't play this year but will in 2003 and will be good when he plays.

2. Carolina- Julius Peppers DE North Carolina - Carolina has a horrrible defensive line, and Peppers will give it the spark that it needs. He will be a great pass rusher who can play on every down.

3. Detroit - Quentin Jammer CB Texas- Jammer will be a great addition to the Lions who really need a CB. I wouldn't be surprised if Dallas tries to move up to this spot to take Jammer.

4. Buffalo - Joey Harrington QB Oregon - The biggest need in Buffalo is still QB, and Harrington fits their needs. Don't worry, the Bills will still suck if they select Harrington.

5. San Diego - Bryant McKinnie OT Miami - He is a steal in this spot, but San Diego really needs an offensive linemen and McKinnie is what they need. He will be able to make some holes and will give help to LaDanian Tomlinson, who had absolutely no holes to run through last season.

6. Dallas - John Henderson DT Tennesee - Henderson has moved down many draft boards, but he is still a quality DT that Dallas needs. I wouldn't be surprised if Dallas moves up to get Quentin Jammer, however,

7. Minnesota - Roy Williams S Oklahoma - Minnesota has a horrible defense and they need a playmaker, which is why they will draft Roy Williams. Safties usually aren't picked this high but Williams is the exception.

8. Kansas City - Ashley Lelie WR Hawaii - Kansas City is weak in the WR position, and Trent Green needs all the help he can get. Lelie is the best WR in the draft who is a great playmaker with amazing speed.

9. Jacksonville - Mike Williams OT Texas - There are questions about the health of Mike Williams, which would make him a perfect fit in Jacksonville. Former Jacksonville OT Tony Boselli was like Williams, both are very good OTs with injury problems. Boselli is gone, and although Williams isn't as good, he is still good and would be a decent replacement.

10. Cincinnati - Philip Bucannon CB Miami - Cincinnati has a really bad secondary, and Bucannon is a very good CB who can step in and give them immediate help.

11. Indianapolis - Ryan Sims DT North Carolina - There is no question that with the addition of Tony Dungy that they will go defense in the first round since that is their biggest problem, but they need help at every position on defense, which is why they will go for the best one available when they pick, which is Sims. He is huge and can help the team stop the run.

12. Arizona - Wendall Bryant DT Wisconsin - Arizona gets a little better each year, but they still need help on the defensive line and Bryant can help them a lot. Arizona will still be bad this year, but with these high picks each year they can't be bad forever.

13. New Orleans - Kalimba Edwards DE/OLB South Carolina - With the loss of Joe Johnson, New Orleans will need a DE and Kalimba Edwards fits that mold. If they get him, they will still have some talent on their line along with Norman Hand.

14. Tennessee - Edward Reed S Miami - Tennessee's strongest weakness is safety, and they will certainly select one in this draft since there is a lot of good ones available. They want Roy Williams, but since he won't be around when they pick they will go with the second best one in the draft, Edward Reed.

15. New York Giants - Jeremy Shockey TE Miami - The Giants need a TE badly, a guy that can help their recieving game. They have 2 decent WRs, so the best guy for them is Shockey, the best recieving TE in this year's draft.

16. Cleveland - TJ Duckett RB Michigan State - Cleveland desperately needs a running back, and Duckett would be perfect for the team. He has a great mix of speed and power and may become one of the NFL's top backs very soon.

17. Atlanta - Donte Stallworth WR Tennessee - They have a great young QB in Michael Vick, and now they need a good young WR to go along with him, and they will go with the talented Stallworth.

18. Washington - Jabar Gaffney WR Florida - Like Butch Davis, Steve Spurrier likes to take players he coached in college. He hasn't done a draft yet but has already signed two players because he coached them in Florida, and Washington needs a WR to go with Rod Gardner, and will pick Gaffney. Michael Westbrook always gets injured and they will need a second WR.

19. Denver - Antonio Bryant WR Pittsburgh - Bryant was a top prospect in January, but he has disapeared most people's first round draft lists. Denver will need a WR as proved last year when McCaffrey was injured and there no one was able to step in and do anything, so they will prevent this from happening by picking the talented Bryant.

20. Seattle - Daniel Graham TE Colorado - They really need a TE, and they will go with Graham, who isn't as good as Shockey but still has an incredible upside.

21. Oakland - Albert Haynesworth DT Tennessee - With the loss of Darrell Russell they will need a DT, and the talented team with go with Haynesworth.

22. New York Jets - Napoleon Harris OLB Northwestern - The Jets need an OLB, as well as a CB and a safety, so they will go with the best talent of the three positions, which is Harris.

23. Oakland - Andre Davis WR Virginia Tech - Although I think Josh Reed is the best WR available at this point, I just don't think Oakland will take him because of his disapointing workouts.

24. Baltimore - Mike Pearson OT Florida - Pearson is a top 10 talent, but because a lot of teams need more help at other positions besides OT, Pearson has fell. Baltimore kept Lewis and he can help make some holes for Lewis, who just missed the past season.

25. New Orleans - Josh Reed WR LSU - This is a steal for New Orleans who needs a WR and can take Reed, who a lot of New Orleans fans already like since he went to LSU. He will help out their passing game, one of the stronger points on this team.

26. Philadelphia - Toniu Fonoti OG Nebraska - A very good guard who is a monster and extremely strong will fall to Philadelphia and they can use his strength on an already decent line.

27. San Francisco - Andre Gurode OG Colorado - Ray Brown is getting old and he will need to be replaced soon, which is why San Francisco will take Gurode. He can help San Francisco's already strong running game.

28. Green Bay - Javon Walker WR FSU - Green Bay needs help at WR, where they only have 2 good WR. They need a third wideout, which is why they will take Walker.

29. Chicago - Kenyo Craver CB Nebraska - Craver will help Chicago's CB corps on an already excellent defense.

30. Pittsburgh - Lito Sheppard CB Florida - Although I don't think him or Craver should be picked in this area, they will be. Pittsburgh has a good defense but I still think they will pick a CB, and Sheppard is the best one available at this time.

31. St. Louis - Marquise Walker WR Michigan - Since St. Louis doesn't have any glaring needs, they will take a WR since they lost Hakim. Walker may not be first round material but lets face it, they don't really have any glaring needs.

32. New England - Levi Jones OT Arizona State - Jones has worked his way into the first round, and New England, a team without a great offensive line, will take advantage and select Jones.

Second round:

33. Houston - William Green RB Boston College - There are a lot of good RBs in this draft, but it is not a glaring need on a lot of teams since these are mostly low first round players. Green is a good RB who will do well in front of Houston's great offensive line.

34. Carolina - DeShaun Foster RB UCLA - Three running backs in a row will kick off the second round. Detroit needs help in the running game, and Foster will help them.

35. Detroit - Anthony Weaver DT Notre Dame - Detroit can go a lot of places with this pick, but I believe they will stick with defense, which is why they will go with Weaver, a guy who can help their line. Weaver can also play DE which is always a positive.

36. Buffalo - Terrance Metcalf OG Mississippi State - Buffalo needs a lot of help on the offensive line, and Metcalf would be a good start. Since the team already has Ruben Brown, having Metcalf can establish power in the middle of the Buffalo line.

37. Dallas - Mike Rumph CB Miami - Dallas really needs a CB, and without a pick high enough to take Jammer in the first round, they will take advantage and take the talented Rumph, who has already been involved in great secondaries in college.

38. Minnesota - Eddie Freeman DT Alabama-Birmingham - Minnesota already has one good DT in Hovan, but they could use another one next to him. Freeman is a very talented player who will make the line stronger in Minnesota.

39. San Diego - Larry Triplett DT Washington - San Diego just lost their best DT to Oakland, so they will try to draft another one. They have very good DEs already, so all that is missing are the DTs. Triplett could fill one of the voids at DT.

40. Jacksonville - Dennis Johnson DE Kentucky - Johnson may be the best pass rusher in the draft. Jacksonville has an awful line and needs help at DE and DT, and they will take the most talented defensive linemen at this point, which will be Johnson.

41. Cincinnati - Michael Lewis S Minnesota - Cincinnati needs help almost everywhere, but the worst part of their team is the secondary, so they will try to fix that with their first two picks in the draft.

42. Indianapolis - Saleem Rasheed LB Alabama - Indy will probably select defensive players with almost every pick in the draft, so this is a no brainer. They are weak at LB and they can select Rasheed, who will probably start right away.

43. Kansas City - Dwight Freeney DE Syracuse - Kansas City has a lot of holes, and will fill another one by drafting Freeney. Freeney can immediately help Kansas City's pass rush.

44. New Orleans - Kevin Thomas CB UNLV - New Orleans really needs a CB, and with none available that are worth picking when they were up in the first round, they will certainly go for one in the second.

45. New York Giants - Reche Caldwell WR Florida - The Giants still need a third WR even if they do go with Shockey in the first, which is why they will go with Caldwell in the second, who already has a lot of big game experience.

46. Tennessee - Kendall Simmons OG Auburn - With the probable retirement of Bruce Matthews, Tennessee will have an opening at guard. Eddie George will be successful this season after struggling last year after having offseason surgery, and filling in the void at guard will make their running game successful again.

47. Cleveland - Levar Fisher OLB North Carolina State - Cleveland already has one very successful OLB in Jamir Miller, and they can use another, which is a good reason to select Fisher.

48. San Diego - Derek Ross CB Ohio State - San Diego has a great safety in Rodney Harrison, but they need some corners, and Ross would be a good start.

49. Arizona - Alex Brown DE Florida - Brown, who had a great college career, would be a good fit for Arizona, who really needs help on the defensive line. After drafting a DT in the first round, they should go for a DE in the second and try to make the defensive line a positive part of the team.

50. Houston - Lamont Thompson S Washington State - Houston obviously has many holes as they are an expansion team, but they already have a strong offensive line and two talented corners. If they draft a safety, they could also start the season with a strong secondary. This team will have strengths when the season starts, which is incredible for an expansion team (the expansion draft really helped, however)

51. Denver - Robert Thomas LB UCLA - With the loss of Bill Romonowski, Denver will need an LB, and they will go with Thomas, who has very good speed.

52. Washington - Fred Weary OG Tennessee - The Redskins could use a guard, and Spurrier will pick a player from a college rival. Weary is a very talented guard.

53. Oakland - Jerramy Stevens TE Washington - The Raiders could use a good TE, which is why they will use a second round pick on Stevens. They have nothing to lose with this pick, they had two first rounders and two second rounders.

54. Seattle - Dorsett Davis DT Mississippi - Seattle could use another DT to give more strength to their defensive line. Davis is the tough player that the Seahawks could use.

55. Oakland - Andra Davis LB Florida - Oakland could use a linebacker, and they are lucky that with this pick they can take someone who is worth this selection, who is Davis. Oakland will probably play in big games this year, so it helps that Davis played in lots of big games in Florida.

56. Baltimore - Charles Grant DE Georgia - Baltimore lost almost everyone and they need a DE, which is why they will select Grant. Baltimore won't have a good defense like they used to, but him and McCrary would make a good set of DEs. Grant is a first round talent but there are a lot of good DEs in this draft.

57. New York Jets - Marc Columbo OT Boston College - Columbo is a very good OT, one the Jets can use since they lost the talented Ryan Young to the expansion draft.

58. Philadelphia - Clinton Portis RB Miami - Since most teams just don't need a RB, Portis was passed up by most teams. Philadelphia won't do the same, however, because the jury is still out on Duce Staley and he may need to be replaced.

59. Philadelphia - Ron Johnson WR Minnesota - Philadelphia is weak at WR, which is a good reason to draft Johnson, who is a very talented WR.

60. San Francisco - Alan Harper DT Fresno State - San Francisco can use a good DT on what is a pretty good defense.

61. Green Bay - Patrick Ramsey QB Tulane - Green Bay can go a lot of ways with this pick, but Favre is getting older every year and if he ever got a serious injury (he will play injured), they wouldn't have a good backup after dealing Hasselbeck (which was a great trade for Green Bay, since he is a backup). Ramsey has a lot of talent and would make a great backup.

62. Pittsburgh - Raonall Smith OLB Washington State - Pittsburgh, which uses a 3-4, could always use a good linebacker. Smith fits this mold and is worth picking at this point.

63. Chicago - Rohan Davey QB LSU - The Bears have the old and not very good Jim Miller as their QB, and he will probably be released soon. The Bears like Davey a lot and they won't pass up on him at this point in the draft.

64. St. Louis - Antwaan Randle-El QB/KR/WR Indiana - This is certainly a reach for Randle-El, but he is perfect for this team. He can throw, return kicks, and recieve. St. Louis needs a good kick returner, and they love to do trick plays, and this guy is perfect for the trick play. This would be a great fit, and Randle-El is one of the most talented players ever.

65. New England - Bryan Thomas DE Alabama-Birmingham - Although New England did win the Super Bowl, they have a few holes on their roster. One of those holes is defensive end. Last year they used a high first round pick on DT Richard Seymour, but the line could still use help, and they will get some at the end of the second round of the draft.

Third Round

66. Houston - Cliff Russell WR Utah - Houston is certainly not strong at WR. Since Houston drafted a lot of defense and offensive linemen in the draft, they will go for WR/RB/QB in the draft. Russell may be the only WR in the draft to be number 1 on its team depth chart when the season begins because Houston is very weak at that position.

67. Carolina - Melvin Paige OT South Carolina - Carolina has a horrible offensive line, so it is a no brainer to try to at least make it a little better in the draft. They will address this problem in the third round when they select Paige, but they still will need a lot more help there.

68. Detroit - Kurt Kittner QB Illinois - Detroit will release Charlie Batch in June and they will only have Mike McMahon. McMahon looked good at the end of the year, but he was a late round pick and you don't know how he will do in a full season. Kittner has experience and although I don't think rookies should start at QB in their first season, he could fill in during the middle if McMahon struggles.

69. Buffalo - Justin Bannan DT Colorado - Buffalo is very weak at the defensive tackle position. Bannan is very talented and can help the Bills and is used to the horrible weather they have since he did play for the University of Colorado.

70. Minnesota - Ryan Denney DE BYU- Minnesota will continue to look for help on defense throughout the entire draft. Minnesota will take a DE in an attempt to make a strong defensive line. Denney is a great talent who has fell into the laps of the Vikings.

71. San Diego - Seth McKinney C Texas A&M - San Diego really needs help on their line, and after going with someone on the outside in the first round, they will look inside in the second. McKinney can play center or guard so he is a flexible player.

72. Dallas - Luke Staley RB BYU - Staley may be a reach at this point, but the Cowboys are known for making reaches in the draft. Staley had a great college career including an incredible final season which prompted him to leave school early. Emmitt Smith is getting old and Staley could be used as insurance, but Staley is a very good RB being overlooked by many teams.

73. Cincinnati - Will Overstreet DE Tennessee - Cincinnati could use help at DE, where they have one great young player in Justin Smith. They can use another talented player on the other side to develop a good pass rush against other teams.

74. Indianapolis - Jon McGraw S Kansas State - Tony Dungy likes to have good talented safeties, and he did in Tampa Bay. He will try to do the same in Indianapolis and he will draft McGraw, who will drop to the third round.

75. Kansas City - Roosevelt Williams CB Tuskegee - No one knows what the hell Tuskegee is, who they play against, or what division and conference they are in, but people are starting to hear about a certain corner from them, Roosevelt Williams. He has a ton of talent which Kansas City can use. He may struggle in the beginning because he hasn't really ever played anyone good, but when he begins to feel the game he will be a very good cornerback.

76. Jacksonville - Najeh Davenport FB Miami - Jacksonville has a great RB in Fred Taylor, but he is always injured. Davenport is a very good blocker and reciever but he would be a good fit in Jacksonville because when Taylor gets injured (by week 4 at the latest) he can play RB and be more successful than Stacey Mack.

77. New York Giants - Victor Rogers OT Colorado - The Giants could use offensive line help. Rogers is a good tackle that would fit in well with the Giants.

78. Tennessee - Kahlil Hill WR Iowa - Hill probably won't start, but the Titans are very weak at WR and could at least use a guy who could be a good third wideout.

79. Atlanta - Pig Prather S Mississippi State - The team is already strong at CB, so they should solidify the safety position. Prather is a very good player with a weird nickname.

80. Cleveland - Chester Pitts OT San Diego State - Cleveland can improve their offensive line, which is why they will take Pitts. They will use this draft to try to make their running game stronger and do some other things as well, and this will help them.

81. Arizona - Lamar Gordon RB North Dakota State - Even though Arizona did draft a RB in the first round two years ago, he is a bust and if he doesn't succeed this year he will be gone. They lost Pittman so they now need another RB. Gordon was very good in college even though he never really played any tough teams and Arizona would be smart to select him.

82. New Orleans - Sheldon Brown CB South Carolina - The Saints drafted a CB in the last round, and I wouldn't be surprised if they did again in this round. They really need help at this position and both could have an impact on the team this year.

83. Houston - Trev Faulk LB Kansas State - Houston is using a 3-4, meaning that they will need very good linebackers. Although they do have Jamie Sharper, they still need more linebackers. Faulk is a very good linebacker who would start right away if Houston drafted him.

84. St. Louis - Terry Jones TE Alabama - I don't really know what this team needs because they don't need anything really, so they could draft a TE in case Conwell struggles.

85. Denver - Forfeited pick

86. Seattle - Ramon Walker S Pittsburgh - Seattle could use a safety, so Walker would be a perfect fit.

87. Tampa Bay - Chester Taylor RB Toledo - Tampa Bay could use a good speedy RB after losing Dunn. They signed Pittman but could still use another RB. Taylor could be a good third down back.

88. Baltimore - James Allen OLB Oregon State - Baltimore needs a replacement for Jamie Sharper. Allen could start right away alongside Lewis and Boulware.

89. New York Jets- Mike Echols CB Wisconsin- The Jets don't have any corners that have talent, so they will draft Echols. He will start right away.

90. Oakland - LaCharles Bentley C Ohio State - At this point, it doesn't matter who Oakland picks. They can draft a center, so they will go with the talented Bentley.

91. Miami - Joaquin Gonzalez OT Miami - Miami still has problems at OT since Brent Smith is still unproven. Gonzalez proved himself in college and could be a successful NFL player.

92. Philadelphia - Andre Lott CB Tennessee - Lott would be a great nickel back for Philadelphia who already has a great secondary.

93. Chicago - Eric Heitmann OG Stanford - Chicago could use another good guard, which is why they will go with Heitmann.

94. Pittsburgh - Kenyon Coleman DE UCLA- Pittsburgh doesn't have a lot of needs, so they can draft a good DE at this point.

95. St. Louis - Akin Ayodele DE Purdue - I guess they could use another DE, but they really don't need anything.

96. New England - Ben Leber LB Kansas State - New England could use another linebacker on their team since it isn't the strongest part of the team.

I like this. A few comments though.
Kansas City really likes Stallworth calling his predraft performance one of the best they have seen. Lelie is good but his performance yesterday really hurt him as he injured his hamstring.
If Stallworth is not taken by Kansas City, he will be taken by New Orleans or NY Giants. But Shockey and then Caldwell in the second is credible for the Giants. Atlanta does really like him but I doubt he will be around.
Houston will cream their pants if they get Carr and Green, but there are no late rounders that want a RB. Then a WR in the third sounds good and yes, they need another OLB to start.
I like Jaoquin Gonzalez and I hope we get him in the third.
Do you really think Akin Ayodele will go in the third? I was thinking he was fifth round material. He was a LB at Purdue and wasn't very dominant. I was actually hoping Miami could get him in the later rounds.

I have seen a bunch of mocks with Ayodele in the second and third and a few in the fifth, I read about him and he sounds like third round material. I am going to be updating this once a while but I am happy I finished it. I am surprised I am not being called crazy by calling Randle-El a late second rounder to St. Louis.

Few disagreements here:
Haynesworth doesn't get past #12. I believe the 4 "Elite" DTs in this draft will all be gone by #12, so him sliding all the way to 21 is a little off to me.

William Green in no way stays out of round 1, and Marquise Walker is a little too high as well. He is a second rounder.

Andra Davis looks a little high to me, and there is no way that Alex Brown gets picked ahead of Charles Grant. Grant will be a late first rounder by draft day.

Bryan Thomas is a little low, and Davey is a little too high. I thik Davey is a boarderline 3rd rounder at best. Thomas ran a 4.47 40 for a DE/OLB so he will rise as well.

While I believe Jerramy Stevens has the talent to go where you drafted him, I believe his character alone will knock him out of the first day all together, as will Luke Staley's injuries. Antwaan Randle-El hurt his stock at his workout as well, I believe he only ran a 4.6-4.65 range. He is a wild card tho, could go anywhere if a team gets hot and bothered for him.

Pretty good job tho, all in all looks kinda like what I have.

Who do you think will draft the fourth DT in the first four? I agree with Ice. Maybe he wont drop to 21, but the fourth DT wont get picked by 12. Who do you see in the late rounds picking up Green? I agree he is first round material, but everyone past Cleveland at #16 has a good starting RB and wont wanna give up their first pick for another. Maybe Washington cuz Snyder is crazy enough to make Spurrier go after him.

I believe maybe Buffalo, San Diego, Minnesota, Kansas City, Indianapoilis and Arizona will all take long, hard looks at thesse DTs.

Oakland, Baltimore, Philadelphia are all looking to replace their RBs or get very good backups/insurance policies. Taking a star RB like Green would go way further than a solid-good olineman that late in the first round.

Green isn't in the second round because of his talent, he falls there because of team needs. None of those teams in the second half of the first round will take a RB besides Cleveland. Philly will take one in the second but not the first. And there is no way 4 DTs go in the top 12, Haynesworth falls to 21 because of team needs. You are right though about Charles Grant and Bryan Thomas, they are better than Alex Brown. When I do an update to this (sometime in the next week, probably during the weekend) I will move them up. Having Brown above them was a mistake.

Some more things:
Davey will be taken by Chicago in the second round. They really like him and won't take a risk in losing him to another team in the third.
Oakland and Baltimore both need a lot more things besides an RB. Oakland needs a DT and WR, and Baltimore needs a lot. The Ravens have a RB. Philly takes an RB in the second round for now, but that can change.

Oakland just signed John Parella to a nice contract and are looking to resign Grady Jackson. They also have, what they believe is a future star, Jerry Porter at WR along with the current starters. To say they don't need a RB but need a DT and WR is errenous.


If Philly believe that RB is a weakness on their team, due to Staley's injury, why wouldn't they pick a great RB in the first? Why is Staley on the trading block?

Davey, when did Chicago hint they they wont risk losing him in the 3rd when he is rated no higher than a 3rd or 4th round talent? Bit of a reaching statement there.

Great talents rarely fall very far, despite team needs. Look at Randy Moss, Daunte Culpepper, etc... Minnesota didn't have QB or WR as team needs but they were picked regardless.

As for the 4 DT's, I really can't see any of them lasting past Arizona. Then NO also needs a DT. They are all rated very highly and have great measurables. Tennessee could use a DT, Cleveland and Atlanta could also use DTs.....list goes on....these talents wont last till 21

Tennessee needs a safety more than anything, Oakland is still going to draft a DT unless they sign someone else, and Philly could use a Guard more than a RB and for now Philly won't go for a RB in the first round. New Orleans is more likely to go for a T, CB or DE than a DT, they still have Norman Hand who is pretty good. Cleveland is definetly drafting a RB and Atlanta is going for a WR.

Why is NO not going to go for a DT because they have Norman Hand, but Oakland is and they have John Parrella? That is a contradiction in itself. NO has Darren Howard at DE, Dale Carter at CB and Kyle Turley at OT, yet you list those as positions ahead of DT, why?

Tennessee is very close to signing Lance Shulters, so then DT will be a bigger need.

As for Philadelphia, how do you know they will pick a OG in the first Round instead of perhaps the best back in the draft, when in fact they are looking to get a better RB? They went after Warrick Dunn and in my opinion Green is much better than Dunn. When faced with the 2nd or 3rd best OG in the draft or the BEST RB, who would you pick when both positions are need positions? It's a no-brainer, you take the BEST. Green is a way BETTER value than any Olineman at that point in the draft.

Atlanta is a team that could go in any number of directions. DT is a need, like WR, but the only way you know they are definately going to take a WR is if you are in their War Room.

Most teams work like this: They have a Value Board and a list of Team Needs. If 2 players are available that are both at postions of need they will look to the value board and take the best value. This way you get better players and your team gets the better talent in the end.

If you keep passing on more talented players it is going to catch up to you.

Let me give an example of what you are saying. With your reasoning, hypothetically:

Dolphins own the 50th pick in draft, Donte Stallworth drops down to us for no apparent reason, but OT is a bigger need so we select Marc Colombo instead, to fortify the Oline.

My question to you is, would you be happy about that pick?

I don't know who Philly will take, but do you know? In fact, you can't really say you know who anyone is going to take. A mock draft is when you predict who they will take, and for now I say Philly takes Fonoti. Of course I will update it a few times, but for now I am not convinced that Philly will take a RB in the first round. When I believe that Philly will take a play like Green, then he will be moved into that spot.

San Diego will not take a DT at #5. They are in great need of a starting WR or OL.

You never answered my question tho?! You never really respomded to any of the points I brought up.

Of course I don't know who Philly is going to pick, Philly doesn't know who they will pick until they are on the clock! But what I am saying is that given the circumstance, it is more likely, MUCH more likely that they take Green over any OG that will be there.
