On an island
This is a lot like the last one in the second and third round, but the first had a few changes.

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 - Bryant McKinnie OT Miami - This wouldn't be the smartest choice for Buffalo since they need a QB, but McKinnie will probably be a better OT than Harrington will be a QB. He could be the next Tony Boselli without the injuries.

5. San Diego - Mike Williams OT Texas - San Diego will be very upset that they won't be getting McKinnie, but they can still get Williams, who is a very good OT and will go to many Pro Bowls.

6. Dallas - Philip Bucannon CB Miami - Although I think they can still get Bucannon a few spaces lower, they really need a CB more than anything and can take him now.

7. Minnesota - Roy Williams S Oklahoma - Minnesota needs help everywhere on defense, but they really need a good player in the secondary. Williams was one of the best defensive backs in college and is great at making plays.

8. Kansas City - Ryan Sims DT North Carolina - Kansas City likes Sims a lot and he will be available when the Cheifs pick with the eighth selection.

9. Jacksonville - Levi Jones OT Arizona - Jacksonville needs someone to replace Boselli and they really like Jones. Jones' stock has improved a lot since the Senior Bowl where he played very well and Jacksonville will take him to fill the void at tackle.

10. Cincinnati - Joey Harrington QB Oregon - Not many people have thought of the situation of Harrington going to Cincinnati, but it very well could happen. Cincinnati is desperate for a QB and Bledsoe has no interests in going there, so they could turn to Harrington.

11. Indianapolis - Wendall Bryant DT Wisconsin - Indianapolis needs a defensive tackle badly and will finally concentrate on defense now that they have a defensive minded coach.

12. Arizona - Albert Haynesworth DT Tennessee - Arizona could really use a defensive tackle. Haynesworth is not the best one in this draft but is still worth this pick.

13. New Orleans - Donte Stallworth WR Tennessee - New Orleans really likes Stallworth and would fit in well as their second WR next to Joe Horn. Stallworth is now considered the top WR in the draft.

14. Tennessee - John Henderson DT Tennessee - Tennessee needs a defensive tackle badly, and they don't need to look far to get the perfect one for them. Many had Henderson as the number one pick during the college season.

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 - William Green RB Boston College - Cleveland has looked to Green now to be their next running back and they really like what they see. He would be a good fit for their team.

17. Atlanta - Asley Lelie WR Hawaii - Lelie is a top prospect and the second best WR in the draft. Atlanta has a good QB, now they need that top WR for him to throw to, and they have found their man.

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 - Napoleon Harris OLB Northwestern - Denver needs a OLB with the loss of Romonowski, and they would love to steal a player that their rival really wants to select.

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 - Josh Reed WR LSU - Oakland needs a good WR since Rice and Brown are both old. Reed should start in his second season and will be a good third wideout this year.

22. New York Jets - Lito Sheppard CB Florida - The Jets lost both of their corners to the expansion draft and are yet to find any replacements, so they will use the draft to find at least one if not two. Sheppard is a pretty good cornerback who can help the Jets.

23. Oakland - Kalimba Edwards DE/OLB South Carolina - Oakland could use a linebacker, and Edwards plays that and defensive end. It is not yet known what position he will play in the NFL, however. He is still a great talent that Oakland will not pass on.

24. Baltimore - Ed Reed S Miami - Baltimore lost Woodson, so a good young safety is what they need at this point. Baltimore could go a lot of ways at this point, but Reed is the best fit.

25. New Orleans - Mike Pearson OT Florida - New Orleans needs a good tackle after losing Roaf. Pearson can fill that void and strengthen the offensive line.

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 , which is why San Francisco will take Gurode. He can help San Francisco's already strong running game.

28. Green Bay - Antonio Bryant WR Pittsburgh - Green Bay needs some WRs for Favre to throw to. They really need a 3rd wideout, which is where Bryant could step in.

29. Chicago - Keyuo Craver CB Nebraska - Craver will help Chicago's CB corps on an already excellent defense. Chicago is looking for some guys who can cover, so this pick makes a lot of sense.

30. Pittsburgh - Mike Rumph CB Miami - Although the most talented players around at this spot are all RBs, they already have 3 good ones so they won't select one. They could use another cornerback, and Rumph is an experienced one that they could use.

31. St. Louis - Andre Davis WR Virginia Tech - St. Louis lost Hakim, so they are now looking for a third reciever. Davis is a great talent and he would really be an amazing third reciever for the Rams.

32. New England - Charles Grant DE Georgia - This selection would make a lot of sense. Grant played with DT Richard Seymour in college and they would both be first round selections. New England is looking for a good pass rusher.

Second round:

33. Houston - TJ Duckett RB Michigan State - Duckett is a steal at this point, but since none of the teams at the bottom of the first round are looking for a RB, he will fall right into Houston's lap.

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 - Lamont Thompson S Washington State - Woodson is getting old now and he could use someone next to him with a lot of talent. Thompson is an incredible athlete, he runs a 4.4 forty and weighs 220 pounds, which is amazing.

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 - Bryan Thomas DE Alabama-Birmingham - Jacksonville could really use a good DE at this point. Their defensive line is really weak and Thomas could help.

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 - Dennis Johnson DE Kentucky - Kansas City has a weak pass rush, and he can help them in this department.

44. New Orleans - Robert Thomas LB UCLA - New Orleans is still in need for a linebacker. Thomas has speed and a lot of talent.

45. New York Giants - Javon Walker WR Florida State - The Giants still need a third WR even if they do go with Shockey in the first, which is why they will go with Walker in the second.

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 - Marquise Walker WR Michigan - Cleveland has a great young QB in Tim Couch but only one good reciever. They could really use another and they will go with Walker.

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 - Levar Fisher OLB North Carolina State - Arizona is weak at linebacker. Fisher is good and could really help out Arizona.

50. Houston - Dwight Freeney DE Syracuse - Houston could use a good DE in their 3-4 system.

51. Denver - Reche Caldwell WR Florida - The Broncos could really use a third wideout as shown last season. McCaffrey went down and absolutely no one did anything to replace him.

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 - Alan Harper DT Fresno State - Oakland needs a DT due to the loss of Darrell Russell to a drug suspension.

56. Baltimore - Ryan Denney DE BYU- Baltimore lost almost everyone and they need a DE, which is why they will select Denney. Baltimore won't have a good defense like they used to, but him and McCrary would make a good set of DEs.

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 - Andra Davis LB Florida - San Francisco could use a linebacker, and they are lucky that with this pick they can take someone who is worth this selection, who is Davis.

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 - LaCharles Bentley C Ohio State - Bentley is definetly not going to slip into the third round, and Pittsburgh is one of those teams that can take someone based on talent instead of team needs.

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 - Roosevelt Williams CB Tuskegee - No one knows what college he went to but people are starting to hear about Williams. New England could use some corners and they can afford to work on a project type of player since they are the Super Bowl champions.

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 - Kevin Thomas CB UNLV - Carolina just signed Terry Cousin but they are still very weak at cornerback. Thomas is a very good player who Carolina won't pass on.

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 - Alex Brown DE Florida - This is a steal at this point of the draft. Buffalo is desperate for a pass rusher.

70. Minnesota - Trev Faulk LB LSU - Minnesota could really use a good LB. Faulk is a steal at this point of the draft.

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 - Pig Prather S Mississippi State - Kansas City has a very bad secondary and they are desperate for a safety. Prather has talent and a weird nickname.

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 - Justin Bannan DT Colorado - Atlanta has a very weak defensive line, and could really use a tackle. Bannan would help this team out a lot.

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 - Raonall Smith LB Washington 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. Smith 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 - Melvin Paige OT South Carolina - A good player that Oakland can use even though they don't really need anything at this point.

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.
the Fins are going to be drooling at some of the OLmen that fell to round 2, but we got nothing to give up to move there, so they will be patient until the Giants pick

77. New York Giants - Victor Rogers OT Colorado

but happily end up with Joaquin Gonzalez

nice job, but why are we at 91 and not 90 :confused:
I have Denver's forfeited pick as 85, we were supposed to pick 91, but since they had salary cap violations we pick 90th.

No way Duckett slides all the way to 33.

You say Indy is bad at LB, but that is the STRENGTH of their defense. They have 3 high picks in that unit. Peterson is one of the best LBs in the game, Morris is a good MLB who will be better with actual DTs in front of him and Washington looks like he is really gonna be a player.

The reason Denver released Romo was because they are dying to get OLB Ian Gold(Michigan) on the field. They are very solid at LB with Gold, Mobley, and Wilson.

Ayodele, Staley, and Davey are all way too high.

Glad to see you have come around on the DTs and Buchanon. But still, no way Duckett makes it to 2 round.
Sorry but Oakland will not take a RB in the first, they have 2 good ones and a good goal line guy already. Staley has good speed, the Bears really like Davey, and Ayodele barely made it. Gold is more of a special teams guy.
How can you say Gold is more of a special teams guy when they RELEASED romo because of GOLD????? Do you really know the situation there at all? Romo is out purely because of Gold!!!

Staley has an injury list longer than Lawrence Phillips rapsheet....
