    The Houston Texans pick...We are pleased to announce that we have chosen USC's Alshon Jeffery... That's correct USC- the real USC- Univ. of South Carolina.

    With Andre Johnson getting older, we believe adding another threat for Matt Schaub will help us reach our goal of going to the Super Bowl...

    The Cincinnati Bengals traded down from the #21 spot because at that point they had five people on their draft board that they valued equally. By trading down 7 spots two of those players still remain. Left with the choice of strengthening their pass offense or their pass defense with two equally rated players, it comes down to a matter of intangibles.
    Pairing Stephen Hill with AJ Green could give the Bengals one of the most dangerous receiving duos in the league.
    Janoris Jenkins would give them a top-10 talent at corner.
    The deciding factor, however, was the pairing of Janoris Jenkins with Jerome Simpson.
    With the 28th pick in the draft, The Cincinnati Bengals select Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia TechChase+Minnifield+Virginia+v+Georgia+Tech+l-AFX-SVb-7l.jpg

    With the Titans shock reach for Peter Konz, the Rat Birds thought it essential to change tact and PUNT (Well Kick) for Blair Walsh in the first. It was deemed neccesary due to the hilarity of Billy Cundiff's inability to kick from 32 yards. However, upon stumbling to the stage and a slight concussion to the head the Rat Birds announced their first round selection as the new "Suggs" DE ANDRE BRANCH Andre Branch.jpg

    The Niners are VERY tempted by the fact that Whitney Mercilus is still on the board. He would make a heck of a bookend opposite last year's rookie sensation Aldon Smith, but the team just re-signed Ahmad Brooks to a six-year, $37 million contract ($8.25 million guaranteed).

    They could go wideout, but they just signed Mario Manningham and Randy Moss. I realize that Moss is only there for the short-term, and Manningham may be a better #3 WR than a #2 WR, but the crop of WR's available does not excite me. If a freak of nature like Stephen Hill were still available, that might be worth the risk, but Rueben Randle just doesn't get my juices flowing.

    The Niners have a solid left side of the OL with Joe Staley and Mike Iupati, but need some serious help on the right side. Guards Adam Snyder and Chilo Rachal signed in Arizona and Chicago respectively this offseason, and former first round pick Anthony Davis seems to be overwhelmed at tackle. Often times when highly drafted OT's flame out, teams move them inside to guard and they have success (see Leonard Davis and Robert Gallery as prime examples). The Niners could try to salvage Davis by moving him to RG, and then drafting someone to play RT with the 30th pick in round 1.



    The San Francisco 49ers select Ohio State OT Mike Adams.

    The Giants had the worst rushing offense in the league last year and that simply isnt acceptable. Available players came down to the 2nd RB or 5th OT. Since a good RB can come from anywhere and good OT are hard to find, the NYG select a true road grader from Ole Miss

    OT Bobby Massie

    The Rams provided Sam Bradford with legit weapon in round 1 when they selected WR Justin Blackmon. They could certainly decide to give Bradford some protection up front with their next pick, but with the run of o-linemen to come off the board, the value is simply not there at this point. For the first pick in round 2, it is time to address the defense, which is head coach Jeff Fisher's specialty. They should have a solid future with Chris Long and Robert Quinn as pass rushing DE's, but they could fortify the middle of that defensive line with talent. They signed Kendall Langford from the Dolphins and Trevor Laws from the Eagles, but they could still use a young stud in that rotation (Laws is a solid energy guy, but I don't see him as every-down starter material). Luckily, a guy who may be the best DT in this entire draft (he's right on par with Fletcher Cox and Dontari Poe in terms of potential), somehow slipped out of the first round. The Rams wanted this guy so much that they tried to trade back into the late first round to get him, but were turned down, only to have their target fall into their laps anyway. Can you believe the Rams' luck so far? They get 2 firsts and a second to move back 4 spots in the first round, and then get the WR they wanted all along anyway, and now they get another player at a position of need with a mid-first round grade at the top of the second round without needing to trade up (and they get to get to pick yet again 6 picks from now because of that aforementioned extra 2nd rounder they got from Washington.



    The St. Louis Rams select LSU DT Michael Brockers
