Why don't we just do another one after FA and the Combine. That way everyone competes evenly.

For myself, I just enjoyed strategizing and becoming familiar with the players. I'm going to enjoy the draft a lot more now that I have a more informed opinion on the players and the various teams' needs.
Here is my analysis (sorry to hurt some feelings):

Gold Medal Winner
Minnesota Vikings
1. DE Derrick Harvey- Florida
2. WR Adarius Bowman- Oklahoma St.
3. QB Joe Flacco- Delaware
3. C Mike Pollak- Arizona St.
4. DB Jonathan Hefney- Tennessee

The team addresses needs across the board (I believe the intent is to move Pollack to G), with high quality players. Great value in each round. Harvey is the number 2 DE on my board, Bowman is the number 2 WR, Flacco is my number 3 QB on the board, Pollack is my number 1 center, and Hefney is my number 2 FS. So, the team grabs high quality players at each position in each round. Even without the two picks in the third round, this is a great draft.

Silver Medal
Chicago Bears
1. QB Brian Brohm- Louisville
2. WR Mario Manningham- Michigan
3. LB Erin Henderson- Maryland
4. RB Tashard Choice- Georgia Tech
Once again, the Bears draft with needs in mind, especially with free agent defections, and do a solid job. Brohm is great value in the mid-first, and should be ready to start in year 1. Manningham is a head case, but has a lot of talent, and is a decent mid-second round choice. Henderson is a flat-out stud, and my number 3 OLB in this draft (with Connor on the inside). Choice is great value in the 4th and could easily be a starter at the next level. The Bears pick up four starters.

Bronze Medal
San Francisco 49ers
1. OT Chris Williams - Vanderbilt
2. WR Andre Caldwell- Florida
3. WR Dexter Jackson- Appalachian St.
3. DE/DT Kendall Langford - Hampton
4. OLB/DE Cliff Avril - Purdue
Even without the second third-round selection, this draft is sharp. Williams could be the best pure LT in this draft, Caldwell is a bit of a reach (however meets a major team need), Langford could be a nice 3-4 DE with a few more pounds (as has a huge upside), and Avril is my number three 3-4 OLB in this draft, after Gholston and Harvey (Merling looks more and more like a 4-3 DE). The draft hits team needs across the board with value.

Aluminum Medal
Dallas Cowboys
1. WR DeSean Jackson- Cal
1. CB Tracy Porter- Indiana
2. RB Steve Slaton- West Virginia
3. DT Ahtyba Rubin- Iowa St.
4. S Thomas DeCoud- Cal

Speed, speed, speed. The three draft choices at the front end may be the fastest at each position. All are highly explosive. Rubin is a wide-bodied, rotational guy, and DeCoud could make a run at a starting position by 2009.

Of the teams that traded, Houston did a nice job in its limited draft.

Cheers.

Hey Maddog, this is my first time ever for doing something like this. Being a draft guru as you are, could you tell me how I did. I had the Giants. Thanks!
Now we wait for MD to break down each team and not just those 4. Everyone knows he has nothing better to do so I am sure he is on it already.


Thanks MD!!





I'll gladly stand proud with my Aluminum Medal



WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I also thought the Broncos had a good draft with their first 4 picks in Hillis, Ray Rice, Lofton and Phillips. They took alot of pressure off Cutler by drafting Rice and Hillis, who I think would make the Broncos backfield a good one again.
Thank you Maddog Ill take the Silver with pride.If I was the real GM of the Bears I would trade my 1st 2nd 3rd rd picks for Jennings,and D.Smith.


GO 49ERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the vote of confidence. Actually what I expect hurt me is that I did not address the Front line of denver which is losing their starting LT. Although I think it looks worse than it is (because some players were injured). I just felt that Denver might try to address a starting left tackle in FA and the other thing that hurt was that I never addressed the DT position. This also could be addressed in FA. But Maddog isn't and shouldn't be judging based on what might happen in FA.

Still, I'm pretty happy with my draft.
I really have to give some respect to wadjay and what he did with the Bengals:

Cincinnati Bengals
1. OLB Keith Rivers- USC
2. WR Limas Sweed- Texas
2. DT Trevor Laws- Notre Dame
3. DE Chris Ellis- Virgina Tech
4. TE Jermichael Finley- Texas

He hit on every single one of their needs and did so with high-character players (something Marvin Lewis has struggled with during his tenure). A draft like that would be a foundation they could build on for quite awhile.
Great stuff GOFD. Between you MD and AB83's cap coverage I think we have as much indepth analysis on football as the professional's. GREAT JOB GUYS.
I personally love what atlanta did...

Atlanta Falcons
1. RB Darren McFadden- Arkansas
2. QB Andre' Woodson- Kentucky
2. OL Brandon Albert- Virginia
4. OL Oniel Cousins- UTEP
4. DT Frank Okam- Texas

They get their future offense set with mcfadden & woodson and 2 solid OT to protect them. Then they get a big body in Okam to lock up space
