    For those who don't have the time or the inclination to click the links I can tell you Reiss chose Vernon Gholston. No idea who the previous 6 picks were.

    Here's the picks for now

    Miami - Chris Long DE Virginia
    St. Louis - Jake Long OT Michigan
    Atlanta - Glenn Dorsey DT LSU
    Oakland - Darren McFadden RB Arkansas
    Kansas City - Sedrick Ellis DT USC
    New York Jets - Matt Ryan QB Boston College
    New England - Vernon Gholston DE/OLB Ohio State
    Baltimore - Leodis McKelvin CB Troy
    Cincinnati - Phillip Merling DE Clemson
    New Orleans - Keith Rivers LB USC

    Thats what the beat writers for these teams think. A couple of surprises on this list especially the Jets.

    Reiss knows what's up. Gholston is the man!

    I actually think that's a very interesting possibility. If you're a Jet fan, do you really think Clemens is going to lead you to the promised land?

    Good point and I agree. Now that you point it out, the notion that the Jets won't take a possible franchise QB if given the chance seems silly to me. If they think Ryan will be a better QB than Clemens, then maybe they'll take him. We're only talking about arguably the most important position in the game here...

    I think you have to give the guy a shot, personally, and even if he's not, could Pennington perform better behind a better O-line? I know he has issues with his play, but how confident are you going to be behind a line that was getting you half killed most weeks?

    If they're not confident in Clemens, they might be better served taking someone like Flacco or Henne further down, allowing them to use that #6 pick on someone that can contribute to their Franchise from day 1.

    Matt Ryan to the Jets is a possibility to me that no one has been talking about much. He'd instantly be at least tied with Pennington for the starting job. Would love to hear what Jets fans think about it...

    I've all but given up hope that Vernon Gholston will be there for the Pats at #7. Trade down and get Quentin Groves or Derrick Harvey I say...

    Picks 1 through 5 would represent the best scenario for the Pats. If the Jets pick Ryan at 6, then the Pats take Gholston (assuming that's who they want). If the Jets pick Gholston, then there should be heavy demand for Ryan at the pick, and the Pats would be able to move down.

    Thanks.

    Ryan to the Jets is intriguing, but I'm not sure they are going to pull the plug on Clemens yet. They might like Flacco early in Rd 2 better anyway.
