    I was thinking the same thing, Huff.

    Re: NFL Draft

    Man that's an ugly looking mock draft. For starters, Posluszny is staying at PSU for another year. Secondly, there is no way on God's green earth that the Vikings would take Maroney over LenDale White and if they do then I've lost all hope for my team. Third, Tennessee would be nuts to pass on Young. McNair is his mentor and there's no better situation for him that to go to the Titans. Chow and Leinart may be buddies, but I think they'd rather have Young. Finally, I seriously doubt Baltimore would take another RB that early what with early indications being that they want to keep Jamal Lewis around as well as the presence of Chester Taylor, a guy who I like a whole lot. D'Angelo Williams is a nice talent, but that pick wouldn't make a lot of sense to me.

    McNair to Young is a match made in heaven, I remember when McNair came to the NFL, most didn't think he'd have much success.

    I think the Lions would be foolish to take Cutler when they have so many more problems.

    Re: NFL Draft

    As a Titans fanatic, I say that Vince Young will be a Titan on draft day. The only way that the Titans take Ferguson is if Young goes to the Texans at 1 or the Saints at 2. Folks in Nashville are also drooling over AJ Hawk. Tennessee will not draft Matt Leinart at 3 if he fall to them. If for some odd reason Reggie Bush falls to them, I don't think they would pass him up, but I don't see that happenning. I actually expect the Titans to trade down and select a linebacker or offensive lineman.

    Basically, if they can't get Vince Young, they will trade the pick if it isn't Reggie Bush at 3. IMO, Ferguson would be the best choice.

    How much you want to bet that they dont take Matt Leinart if for some reason he isnt there at 3?

    I don't think the Jets can take a QB...a good chunk of their cap space is already occupied by Pennington.

    D'Brickashaw Ferguson should be the #2 pick in the draft. He's an absolute stud of a lineman and someone who could anchor an offensive line for a decade on a team.

    While getting your "franchise quarterback" seems to be all the vogue in drafts, building a solid young offensive line is the quickest way to build a team into a long-term contender, IMO. Just ask Pittsburgh and Denver.

    I agree Caveat, if the Texans could swing it they probably would be better off trading down a spot or three in the draft and taking Ferguson. To me the jury is still way out on Carr. I think when he isn't on his back looking at the roof of Reliant Stadium he can be a really good quarterback. Get Ferguson in there to help protect him and no telling how effective he could be.

    Reggie Bush is a true stud but the Texans already have a top 10 all around running back in my opinion with Domanick Davis. Is Bush better than Davis? Sure, I think in the long run he will be. Does Bush do more in 2006 to turn around the Texans than Ferguson could? I doubt it.

    Norm Chow is the offensive cooridnator for the Titans. If for some reason the Saints or Texans took Vince Young, I would think the Titans would absolotely jump at the chance for Matt Leinart.

    I don't know if the Saints really intend to draft Leinart, but I'm guessing he doesn't really intend to play for them.

    Re: NFL Draft

    Nothing against taking a good TE, but the Rams are desperately trying to get more definsively-minded, will be looking that direction when they hire a new coach, and will likely take a defensive player in the first round.
