Chris Long anybody?? Sure would exceed my hopes if he were still there for us. Well, according to Pro Football Weekly, Gholston gone at #4 and Jets snare Stewart ( who I think will be a hell of pick, but not at #6). They also have McKelvin as the top corner in the draft (he very well may be - if he can "get it"). http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW/NFLDraft/Draft+Extras/2008/mock2302.htm 1. Miami Dolphins OT Jake Long, Michigan It doesnâ€™t matter who the quarterback is if he doesnâ€™t have time to throw. With Long protecting the blind side, QB Josh McCown may not have to run for his life for the first time in his career. The time-tested, proven way to build a football team is in the trenches, and Bill Parcells knows that as well as anyone. 2. St. Louis Rams DT Glenn Dorsey, LSU The Ramsâ€™ track record of drafting defensive tackles in the first round has been very suspect. However, the teamâ€™s brain trust is wise enough not to let past mistakes cloud its judgment of a legitimate talent with great passion. 3. Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan, Boston College If the Falcons are to put the past behind them, nothing could do it better than a new face of the franchise at the most important position. Ryan has all the tools to become great. 4. Oakland Raiders DE Vernon Gholston*, Ohio State The Raidersâ€™ ground game was not the problem last year, when they ranked sixth in the league in rushing. With Tyler Brayton (free agency) and Warren Sapp (retirement) gone, Tommy Kelly returning from a serious injury and a disgruntled Derrick Burgess having outplayed his contract, Gholston will provide the most help. 5. Kansas City Chiefs RB Darren McFadden*, Arkansas The Chiefs desperately want to trade down, but Carl Peterson has never shied away from the strategy of taking the best player overall. With the looming pressure to win immediately and Larry Johnson coming off injury, he may have to restrain himself from filling bigger needs at tackle and cornerback if forced to stay at the No. 5 slot. 6. New York Jets RB Jonathan Stewart*, Oregon Signing Calvin Pace filled a void at the OLB position. The Jets signed Alan Faneca and Damien Woody to establish a power-running game. All the offense lacks is a smashmouth back. After having surgery on his toe, Stewart is expected to be fully ready for training camp and could bring the blend of power and speed thatâ€™s missing from the Jetsâ€™ offense. 7. New England Patriots (from San Francisco) OLB-DE Chris Long, Virginia The Patriots have not drafted a linebacker in the first round since Bill Belichick came to New England, but Longâ€™s versatility will be too attractive to pass up. A strategist like Belichick could utilize him in many ways. 8. Baltimore Ravens CB-RS Leodis McKelvin, Troy Age and injuries have wounded the Ravensâ€™ secondary. McKelvin could step in from Day One and start.
