    [​IMG] 1. Washington Redskins - LE Terrance Easton, Miami University - This team has more holes than Jayden James and that is saying a lot. Their needs are C, LE, RE and aging CB's. If I was the Redskins, I would look at sliding back and gaining a few extra high picks. The Redskins owner has been MIA lately, so I doubt that will be happening. Easton hopefully will be the piece to lead the Skins back to respectability.

    [​IMG] 2. Miami Dolphins - LOLB Eldrin Spivery, Miami - Miami once again has a lot of picks to add to an already young team. They probably are one of the youngest teams currently in the 12th Man. Look for them to address a gaping hole at LOLB early. Eldrin will feel right at home and can probably stay in his posh off campus apartment because he won't be going very far. It's Eldrin or Lamb with this pick.


    [​IMG] 3. Minnesota Vikings - CB Andre Cornish, Oregon State - Whereas the Dolphins are the youngest team in the league, the Vikings could be the oldest. A ton of holes on the defensive side of the ball not to mention an aging AP, this draft will decide the Vikings fate for the foreseeable future. With the high scoring offenses in the NFC North, the Vikings will reach for Cornish. A wise move.


    [​IMG] 4. Tennessee Titans - C Ian Smith, California - The Titans are looking to knock the Colts off the AFC South pedestal. With the Colts facing cap issues for the next few seasons, now is the time. Smith will solidify an offensive line that will allow youngster QB Carvel the time to find his slew of young receivers. Don't forget about the holes that will open up now for Chris Johnson and this appears to be a no brainer pick.

    [​IMG]5. Chicago Bears - ROLB Keelan Reid, TCU - This pick could change hands from now and until the draft. With the Bears asking for the farm, I don't see them moving it unless it goes to the Colts. Not many holes on this Chicago team. If there is one, it could be ROLB. Reid would give them an edge rusher not to mention a backer that could contain the edge. Could this be the pick that finally brings a championship back to Chicago?


    [​IMG] 6. Cleveland Browns - QB David Wolfe, Iowa State - Yes they have Michael Vick. Problem is that he's 35 and could retire at any time. Getting the quarterback of the future here will make the Browns serious contenders in the AFC North. This pick should quell the rumors abound about the possible departure of Hakeem Nicks. The combination of Nicks and Fitzgerald could be the best in the league. With a young gun throwing them the ball, the Browns are my pick to win the North this year.

    [​IMG] 7 Indianapolis Colts - LOLB Jaren Lamb, Kansas State - If anyone hasn't heard yet, the Colts won the Super Bowl a few years ago. One of the stars was Robert Mathis. Mathis is getting a little long in the tooth, not to mention a little pricey. An influx of young blood will do wonders for the Colts OLB's. It's either Lamb, or if he went to the Dolphins, it's Spivery with this pick.

    [​IMG] 8. St. Louis Rams - HB Raheem Marshall, Tennessee - The Rams started the season out strong, 2-2 but then fell by the wayside. They have the weapons at QB and WR and now all they need is a HB. When your starting HB is named I. Pead, you my friend, have issues. Kamani Webster will be on the board here, but I'm hearing he will be the next Rashaan Salaam. The next obvious choice will be Marshall. I would ask the Rams HC Eddie what his thoughts were, but I haven't heard from him in weeks. Hopefully, all is well wherever you are.

    [​IMG] 9. Baltimore Ravens - LT Tevin Dobbs, Houston - The Ravens are the king of the one and done. They have made it an art form. Great regular season, but choke artists in the playoffs. If only Ray Rice could have eeked out a few more yards, and their playoff stories would have been written differently. Dobbs will give them a dominating presence on the left side of the line that will rejuvenate Ray Rice. They won't win their division but will sneak in via the wild card. Once in, they will surprise and could go all the way.

    [​IMG] 10. Green Bay Packers - C Harvey Crooker, Syracuse - Green Bay choked as well in the playoffs. They became to one dimensional and are putting more of a focus on becoming more balanced. To do that, they need an offensive line with an attitude. Crooker fits the mold, and will easily win the starting spot. A more complete attack could lead to better things for Green Bay in the future.



    Damn this took a hour of my life that I will never get back so I hope you all enjoy. Start the negative feedback NOW!

    Entertaining Kemosabe but not accurate!! I don't have as many holes as you think. At least not from my perspective.

    PS: I'm never MIA, I know how to enter and leave a room without being seen!! ;)

    From the beginning of time Mathis has played DE and dispite the Colts change to 3-4 this year, Mr. Musics squad stayed a 4-3. Therefore the Colts are in good shape with there LB core. With that said, it means they will be looking elsewhere ;)
