    Re: 2007 Nfl Mock Draft 1-10

    Minnesota Vikes- Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas. Injury and lack of production at position make this a good pick, although a WR is on the wish list so they could trade up or down to take one.
    I'm a Viking fan and I'd give up multiple picks for a shot at Calvin Johnson. I know it's risky to take a WR that high, but if there's a guy in this draft worth taking a chance on, it's him.

    DE isn't really a focal point I wouldn't think. This is a DE-heavy draft and you can get a nice player in the later rounds at that spot. Plus with Udeze, James, Scott and Edwards, I think they're set. Maybe they look OL, but that depends on who they decide to keep and I'm not sure how many Top-10 OL there are in this draft outside of Thomas.

    Re: 2007 Nfl Mock Draft 1-10

    Heres my take.

    1.Oakland-Jamarcus Russell(QB-LSU)

    Davis likes raw talent instead of the proven player. Russell is a 6'6 freak in the Vince Young mold. IMO, his performance in the Sugar Bowl moved him past Quinn.

    2.Detroit-Brady Quinn(QB-ND)

    Quinn steps into an offense that could surprise with Roy Williams and Kevin Jones. Short term, he might be a better investment than Russell.

    3.Cleveland-Adrian Peterson(RB-Oaklahoma)

    Word out of Cleveland is that Droughns is going back to being a bench specialist, and Peterson would be a better every down back.

    4.Tampa Bay-Calvin Johnson(WR-GT)

    I know C/E is going to hate me, but Calvin is possibly the best wideout to come out since Keyshawn. It can't be worse than Galloway and Clayton.

    5.Arizona-Joe Thomas(OT-Wisconsin)

    The Cardinals have all the weapons on offense, but they need to protect Leinart, especially with Leonard Davis departing via FA.

    6.Washington-Alan Branch(DT-Michigan)

    The Redskins lacked a solid run stuffer up the middle. Branch steps in and fixes the problem.

    7.Minnesota-Reggie Nelson(FS-Florida)

    The Vikes have a solid defensive core, but not much in the secondary. Nelson would be an upgrade.

    8.Houston-Marshawn Lynch(RB-Cal)

    The Texans still need a ground presence, but I dont think Lynch will make up for passing on Reggie Bush.

    9.Miami-Jamaal Anderson(DE-Arkansas)

    Anderson would be a solid end player to groom to OLB in a 3/4 and an eventual successor to Jason Taylor.

    10.Atlanta-Gaines Adams(DE-Clemson)

    Bobby Petrino goes defense in the first round and gets a solid d-line compliment to John Abraham.

    Calvin Johnson could have all the talent of Randy Moss, TO, and Chad Johnson rolled into one package -- minus any attitude whatsoever -- and it would still be a waste of a pick for the Buccaneers.

    WR is the single most overrated and overpaid position in football. Ask Arizona how helpful having Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Bolden has been. Or ask Texas how beneficial Andre Johnson's talents have been to their football team. Great WR talent is only useful if there is good QB and O-Line talent to go with it. But, if you've got both those two things, average wideouts can keep the chains moving more cheaply and just as effectively (albeit with less razzle-dazzle).

    And no, I don't hate you -- I just desperately hope Jon Gruden and Bruce Allen don't share your line of reasoning.

    I agree with what you are saying, but this is probably the best value pick.

    My guess is that if the Bucs dont take CJ, Adams or Anderson would have to be high on their priority list, especially if Simeon Rice leaves.

    I would like to see Ginn go to the 'Phins. We need an explosive reciever, Booker's hands alst season showed why he isn't a number one reciever there and Chambers is getting older.

    I've seen Calvin Johnson up close & personal during his days at GT. Whether or not he meets a certain team's needs better than another player is a debate that I'll have to sit out.

    He's a legit playmaker. Consider that for his 3 years at GT, he had Reggie Ball throwing to him. That makes his numbers even more impressive. Reggie Ball spent 4 years being one of the more putrid QBs in all of college football.

    (Though in Reggie's defense, I don't think Chan Gailey & his crew did Reggie any favors by the types of plays they called for him. They tried to make him a pocket passer who threw deep balls. If they kept him on quick drops and short throws I think he'd have fared better, and helped open up the occasional deep ball for Calvin Johnson.)

    Combine his physical abilities with a very good head on his shoulders (sorta the anti-Randy Moss, if you will), and I'd be hard pressed to pass on him if my team needed help on the offensive side of the ball.

    Ginn will go top ten. One reason: SPEED. And the other would be versatility: he's a phenominal return man. But he'll be drafted high because of his speed. The NFL loves speed.

    Most mocks I have read have him going as high as 11 to SF and as low as 27 to the Eagles. I think that is pretty reasonable given the other talent available.

    Right now, I would have to say consistency and size are about the only knocks on Ginn right now. If anything, he is a Dante Hall clone.

    But about 4 inches taller, much faster top speed and with better hands. Might as well have called him Eric Metcalf, neither one makes any bit of sense.

    Does Ginn still fumble a lot and drop passes? I didn't follow him much this past season but I remember watching him muff punts a lot during his first two seasons.

    Never dropped many passes actually. He muffed a few in the Michigan game and that was it.

    Tressel stated many times that Ginn had the best hands on the team. Better than Gonzo or Robiskie.

    Mel Kiper has him ranked #9 in the draft. James Adler projects him going #7 to the Vikings.

    Don't know who James Adler is.

    A lot depends on what happens with the other two receivers. Calvin Johnson could slide depending on what direction Tampa goes, and Dwayne Jarrett could be selected ahead of Ginn.

    My prediction is Ginn will go 19th to Tennessee. That possibly would be the best scenario outside of Philadelphia. In those two places his fullest potential would be maximized with Vince Young and Donovan McNabb.

    Wanna bet?

    Ginn is a first rounder and he might, I say might, be a top ten player, but I don't think he goes top 10. Unless 3 receivers go in the top 10, and I just don't see that happening.
