    Bar-bq's final first round projetion, with full Rams Draft

    I'm not going to lie. 4 hours until the draft starts and I have been through three mock drafts today. I was waxing and waning about some picks all day (see San Francisco, Carolina, New England, Washington) and then stumbled across the possibility of a few trades. So...I think my preliminary/ abandonned -UNFINSHED ANAYLYSIS (due to my changing thought patterns) mock goes first- just so you can see the thought process

    1. Oakland Raiders- JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU
    The Raiders don’t have the stones to take the gamble on Calvin Johnson. He is hands down the best, almost questionless, prospect in the draft, and will make a huge impact on whatever team he ends up with. The Raiders will go with Russell, a QB whose stock has risen dramtically the last few months. He is not far and above the best QB in the draft, nor the best player, but Al Davis will fall in love with his height, speed and cannon arm. Here’s hoping the Russell pans out for the Raiders.

    2. Detroit Lions- Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech
    The Lions will do the smart thing. The smartest thing Matt Millen will have done in years. Draft Calvin Johnson. That doesn’t mean he’ll stay a Lion. Some team will be willing to pay a huge price for Johnson, allowing Detroit to maximise their Draft experience with a multitude of picks. Look for a Tampa Bay trade.

    3. Cleveland Browns- Brady Quinn-, QB, Notre Dame
    Brady Quinn is the face of Note Dame, and is soon to be the face of one of the NFL’s worst franchises. Romeo Crennel will take advice from Charlie Weis and steal his protégé for the NFL. There’s no denying a need for a QB in Cleveland- Romeo is on his last legs.

    4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson
    D’Wayne White bolted in free agency, and it’s rumoured that Simeon Rice may have, in fact, invented the wheel. The Bucs’ would love Calvin Johnson, and I
    think will trade up. Adams is a great player, with great upside, who fills an immediate need on the defensive line, and may well start right away.

    5. Arizona Cardinals- Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin
    Joy on the worst offensive line in football. Finally, a lineman that doesn’t play like a small hippo on downers. The point is, Thomas is a very safe pick, who fits a need on the Cardinals offensive line, and should prove to be great value at pick 5. The Cards are rumoured to like Adrian Peterson, but you can’t run the ball without adequate blocking, as Edgerrin James found out last year.

    6. Washington Redskins- Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville
    This pick will be traded. God Knows the Redskins will want to. They have one pick in the first four rounds, and will most definitely trade back at least two spots. (See trade draft) For now, Okoye is the best lineman on the board, and the front four atrocities in Washington last year were countless. Justification? Solidification.

    7. Minnesota Vikings- Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma
    This pick…I’m not sure how much sense there is for the Vikes to draft a back when they have the productive Chester Taylor (and his salary) on the roster. But this is a situation where

    Very good, I think Jamaal Anderson to the Rams is likely... Nice mocks.
