    With the first pick of the 2008 Redszone draft, the Dolphins select...



    Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Re: OFFICIAL 2008 nfl Redzone Draft.

    The Rams are torn. The main reason they did so poorly last year was because the offensive line was decimated with injuries. Not to mention Orlando Pace is getting on in years, and needs to be replaced relatively soon. Jake Long would be a great fit.

    However, Chris Long has all kinds of pass rushing skills (14 sacks and 23 QB hurries during his All-American season last year at Virginia) to go along with the excellent pedigree of being HOF Howie Long's son. The Rams need to seriously upgrade the DE position, and Chris Long would do just that.

    So, without further ado, the St. Louis Rams pick...



    Chris Long, DE, Virginia.

    Dorsey = Solid pick. I'm not dancing in the streets over him, but he was pretty dominant in college and DL like that are always hard to find. Hard to argue.

    Chris Long? I like him, but might be a reach with the 2nd pick. But to be honest, in the Rams situation, they have needs everywhere and this should certainly fill one.

    Re: OFFICIAL 2008 nfl Redzone Draft.

    I'm not a fan of the Dorsey pick. He is not a 3-4 type NT. He is a 4-3 DT and the Dolphins will never play a 4-3. If you factor in his health risks, he isn't worth the investment as a #1 pick for the Dolphins. If a 4-3 team had the #1 pick, he might be worth it. If I had the pick I would have selected Jake Long. Being infull rebuild mold, that locks up your right tackle for 10-15 years.

    Chris Long screams Justin Smith Jr, but I think he'll end up more like a poor mans Aaron Kampman. The Rams need D, and I think Long is the safest pick.

    I love Glenn Dorsey, but he wouldn't be my pick at number 1. This draft class really doesn't have that really great talent though.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Look who decided to make a guest appearance!

    A reach at 2? Plenty of mocks have him going #1 overall. He had an excellent combine, he's the best DE in the draft, and the Rams' needs are DE, OT, and LB, in that order. If the 'Fins don't take him with the first pick, the Rams would do well to take him.

    Re: OFFICIAL 2008 nfl Redzone Draft.

    With the 3rd Pick in the 2008 Redzone NFL Mock Draft, The Atlanta Falcons Select...



    Matt Ryan, Boston College

    Reason: Pretty much the best QB on the board. Is he an elite player? Probably not, but he's the best the Falcons are gonna do this year.

    In normal Raider like fashion, I'm looking high upside, bust potential, plus character concerns.

    With no further ado, Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas

    Re: OFFICIAL 2008 nfl Redzone Draft.

    I'm iffy on the Ryan pick. On one hand, the Falcons are desperate for a QB, but on the other, I don't see that as a situation where a young QB is going to be given the proper time to develop-- and I don't see Ryan being "ready" right away. If I were you Sonny, I would have gone with Jake Long.

    AK-- I also would have gone with Jake Long.

    I would have taken Long too, except that when picking for the Raiders, it's best to ignore logic and take the riskiest alternative available.

    With Redman resigning today with Atlanta, I would imagine Ryan will get eased in this season. Look for his debut around game week 7 or 8.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    this sounds like the logic I will use when picking for the Lions!
