I like Gosselin's mocks a lot but I think he whiffed on the Seattle picks. Right positions, but wrong players:

Brian Bulaga over Trent Williams
C.J. Spiller over Ryan Matthews

Also no Jared Oldrick in the 1st is a Huge mistake...

I disagree with Gosselin on the NY Jets pick, they traded for Antonio Cromartie to be that shutdown corner opposite Revis.

surprising he has Haden lasting so long as well...

I agree. Put Oldrick instead of McCourty and that pick makes a lot more sense...

Jared Odrick not being in Round 1 surprised me -

along with Brandon Graham going at #10, Joe Haden making it to #17, Kyle Wilson being selected by us at #18, Maurkice Pouncey at #19 and Mike Iupati lasting until #27.

i thought most of the posters on this board said Wilson and Pouncey were reaches at #18?

I don't see Taylor Mays either (more possible than Odrick though).

maybe the Roy Williams comparisons are scaring off teams, although i still believe if Taylor Mays went to the right team and was used properly nearer the line of scrimmage he could be very effective.

Don't be surprised if the Browns make a major move to grab Berry. They think he is the next Ed Reed or Troy.

Kyle Wilson is moving up the charts. I like the pick.

Despite the fact that the Steelers drafted two DB's last season, I still think that Wilson will be the pick if the Steelers really like him. I think you will see a complete turnover of our db's in another year. Which means we have 3 positions to fill.

Exactly. We also have a position to fill along the DL too.
