    Could this really be the way tha the first pans out?

    1. Raiders- JaMarcus Russell QB LSU Junior 1st SAME 1st / 10th
    Many NFL scouts confirm that when Russell takes the field in September, he'll be the owner of the best arm in the entire NFL. Al Davis has a long-storied love for the long ball and Lane Kiffin is a master of a dynamic passing attack. Russell fits like a glove in Oakland.


    2. Lions- Joe Thomas OT Wisconsin Senior 2nd SAME 2nd / 5th
    The Lions traded for OT George Foster this off-season, bolstering one of the league's worst offensive lines from 2006. That doesn't mean they're done with the position. Though many of the mock drafts floating around the 'net this month foresee Detroit going with Brady Quinn here, I don't see them passing on Thomas. The Wisconsin All-American wowed scouts at the combine and has everything Matt Millen and Rod Marinelli would like to see in a first round draft pick. He's a wonderful player a can't miss prospect and an even better kid. Thomas will anchor the Lions offensive line for years to come. That is, of course, if they keep the second pick. A lot of teams are hot for Calvin Johnson and could be offering bounties for the pick. Another possibility? Some sort of swap with Arizona, exchanging the 2nd and 5th picks: The Cards grabbing Thomas, Detroit taking Gaines Adams three spots later.


    3. Browns- Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame Senior 3rd SAME 1st / 9th
    The Browns can go a variety of ways at 3. Running back? Adrian Peterson sure is tempting. Defensive line? Gaines Adams is considered the next Julius Peppers. Offensive line? Joe Thomas and Levi Brown have hotter stock than Google these days. In the end, though, Romeo Crennel will take his old colleague Charlie Weis's guy in Quinn, the golden domer out of South Bend. The Frye-Dorsey-Anderson trio sounds more like a law firm than a quarterback depth chart. Quinn gives instant credibility to a position that's been more or less vacated in Cleveland since the Bernie Kosar era.


    4. Buccaneers- Calvin Johnson WR Georgia Tech Junior 4th SAME 2nd / 4th
    This is, of course, if no team swaps picks to take Johnson with the first three selections. He's arguably the best player in this entire draft, however Oakland (they need a quarterback), Detroit (Matt Millen won't use the second pick on another receiver), and Cleveland (Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow were taken in consecutive years in the first round a few years back) all have more pressing needs than the receiver spot. Gruden and co. can't pass on Johnson at 4. His performance at the combine was legendary. His performance on the field next year may be even more impressive. Scouts are already slotting him in as a future All-Pro, and some are even using the words "Best Ever".


    5. Cardinals- Gaines Adams DE Clemson Senior 5th SAME 5th / 7th
    What do Cardinals fans think when they hear about Andre Wadsworth, a former bust and third overall selection, signing with the Jets in the best shape of his life? Just utter disgust? Sadness? Well, Adams is the anti-Wadsworth. The prospect out of Clemson's stock continues to soar. The 2006 ACC Defensive Player of the Year, Adams is a kid who played 8-on-8 football in high school. A pure athlete, he dominated the combine drills in Indianapolis. I'll keep on using this quote to describe Adams because I love it. As FOXSports.com's John "Czar" Czarnecki wrote his take on Adams after his combine performance, "Going strictly by his numbers, Adams blew away his competition by running a 4.64 40-yard dash and also finishing no worse than third in his group in three other categories. When going by these numbers, Adams could be this year's Mario Williams. He could go anywhere in the top 10 and possibly even the top five based on his overall performance. There wasn't one defensive coach yesterday who wasn't blown away by his 40 time." Can't go wrong there.


    6. Redskins- Alan Branch DT Michigan Junior 6th SAME 6th / 6th
    As of now, Washington owns this pick. But FOXSports.com NFL insider Jay Glazer who unlike some "insiders" doesn't pass along information without merit says the Redskins want to send the pick to Chicago for Lance Briggs and the 31st pick overall. If the 'Skins do hold on to the pick, I think they go with Branch. He's slipping like a snowball on most mock drafts because of unimpressive workouts at both the combine and his Michigan pro day, but he's still the top defensive tackle on the board. A 330-pound clog in the middle, he'll be the first DT drafted in April. The Redskins' rush defense was an embarrassment all season long. An All-Big Ten performer, this is a sound pick.


    7. Vikings- Jamaal Anderson DE Arkansas Junior 7th SAME 5th / NR
    Though Mike Timlin's rush defense was one of the tops in the league featuring the Williams boys as clogs in the middle the Vikings pass rush attack was abysmal in '06. How'd they address the situation through free agency? They brought in Vinny Ciurciu! Who? Exactly. Losing steady linebacker Napoleon Harris didn't exactly help either. This not wide receiver or quarterback is undoubtedly the Vikings' greatest need. And in a draft top-heavy with defensive end talent, Anderson makes a lot of sense. Kenechi Udeze started 16 games and recorded 0 sacks last year. Erasmus James is still recovering from a 2005 injury. Anderson, who had 13.5 sacks for Arkansas in '06, could be the perfect fit ... right away.


    8. Falcons- LaRon Landry S LSU Senior 10th (+2) 8th / 11th
    Well, it's Michael Vick's team now. No articles to read on that topic anymore. Until he gets injured. And then it's...gulp...Chris Redman's squad. Assuming Vick stays healthy this season, the Schaub trade could work out well for Atlanta. More than picking up some extra draft picks and a two-spot bump in the first round, all the quarterback controversy and media rumors about Vick's future should come to an end. Now, the Falcons can focus on what matters most: football. It's no great, groundbreaking revelation saying that Atlanta's receiving corps were a nightmare in '06. The only spot on the field that was potentially worse for Atlanta was safety. LaRon Landry is being touted as a once-in-a-generation player. Already considered the top defensive back in the draft entering last month's combine session, Landry blew scouts away with a jaw-dropping 4.32 in the 40. A four-year starter at LSU, and the defensive leader of the nation's number one unit in '06, the Falcons would be grabbing a franchise cornerstone by selecting him at 8. The brother of Ravens starter Dawan Landry, he'll make an impact right away. As for the needs at wideout, they already picked up Joe Horn and own the 39th and 44th picks in the second round. A Sidney Rice or a Jason Hill may very well still be available.

    9. Dolphins- Amobi Okoye DT Louisville Senior 9th SAME 9th / 32nd
    The Dolphins defense picked up LB Joey Porter and DB Cameron Worrell, and re-signed a trio of veteran defensive tackles in the off-season, but lost Dan "Big Daddy" Wilkinson. Porter when he's not getting in slapfests with opponents at blackjack tables in Vegas will be a valuable addition to the defense, one of the best units in the league in '06. On the offensive side of the ball, where Miami struggled throughout last season Randy McMichael, Joey Harrington, Bennie Anderson, Darian Barnes, Sammy Morris, Travis Minor, and Wes Welker are gone with David Martin, a tight end from Green Bay, and fullback Cory Schlesinger now on board. Digest all that? Lots of changes in South Florida. Well, Miami can go a variety of ways, here. Robert Meachem and Dwayne Bowe, as well as Ted Ginn Jr. or Levi Brown could be the choice if the 'Phins want to go with offense, Cam Cameron's specialty. However, I look for Miami to take a gamble and go with the 19-year-old Okoye. A standout at Louisville with arguably the most "upside" in the entire draft, Okoye will learn the game from some of the NFL's best defensive players in Miami. As good as that defense is Zach Thomas, Porter, Keith Traylor, and Jason Taylor aren't getting any younger. Okoye could be the unit's leader for the next decade.


    10. Texans- Levi Brown OT Penn State Senior 8th (-2) 8th / 31st
    The wild off-season down in Houston continues to ramble right on. Let's take stock at some of the major moves thus far: 1. The Ahman Green contract is one of the great mysteries of mankind, 2. The Schaub trade has some experts scratching heads (a lot of money to give a guy with two career starts), and 3) The cutting of both David Carr and Domanick Williams (formerly Davis) the team's offensive leaders in '04 and '05, ushers in an entirely new era of Texans football. The Texans offensive line is known as the league's worst, and has been an utter embarrassment since the franchise began in 2002. Rick Smith and Co. signed OT Jordan Black last week, but it's still not enough. The Texans offensive line is in dire need of a number one pick a first round stud to anchor the line and protect Schaub. Brown's a two-time All American who can start immediately for Gary Kubiak. Look for Houston to swipe him up at number 10 if he's still on the board.


    11. *****- Ted Ginn, Jr. WR Ohio State Junior 17th (+6) 11th / 19
    If Okoye, Branch, or Anderson slips to 11, look for the Niners to grab one of them and bolster their defensive line. Through free agency, San Francisco already bolstered their defensive backfield (Michael Lewis and Nate Clements), and linebacker corps (Tully Banta-Cain and Colby Bockwoldt), but didn't do much on the offensive side of the ball. The ***** replaced Antonio Bryant with under-achieving former Denver first round pick Ashley Lelie. Not exactly an upgrade, as both players have been disappointments over the course of their NFL careers. If the top four defensive linemen are off the board (as I think they will be), look for Mike Nolan and Co. to grab a top-flight offensive weapon. Most mock drafts currently have Robert Meachem as the second rated receiver on their boards. For this team, however, Ginn makes the most sense. A wide receiver that has All-Pro potential as a kick returner, the Ohio State star would fit in well. Ginn is the big-play, pass-catching threat the Niners offense sorely needs. Alongside Smith, Gore, and Vernon Davis Ginn could help make San Francisco's offense one of the youngest, most promising in the entire league.


    12. Bills- Adrian Peterson RB Oklahoma Junior 12th SAME 3rd / 12th
    To say that Buffalo's cleaned house this off-season would be a gross understatement. Willis McGahee? Gone. London Fletcher-Baker? Gone. Nate Clements? Gone. Takeo Spikes? Gone. Kelly Holcomb? Gone. Will Adrian Peterson likely considered a top 3 pick in any other year's draft slip to 12? I highly doubt it. But, if Cleveland goes with Quinn, there doesn't seem to be another team in the top 11 slots that would be targeting a running back with their first pick. Sure, the Bills need help at other positions. And yes, they did just re-sign Anthony Thomas. But none of that will matter if the former Heisman Trophy finalist is sitting on a draft board this late in the first round. If Peterson's somehow available at 12 and again, I highly doubt he will be SOME team will make a move up to snag him Marv Levy and Co. will scoop him up before Buffalo's pick even goes on the clock.


    13. Rams- Patrick Willis LB Ole Miss Senior 13th SAME 12th / 13th
    This is one pick I haven't changed from start to finish in this mock draft process. Willis was a standout in Mobile at the Senior Bowl a month ago and a top collegiate performer his entire time at Ole Miss. The Butkus Award winner and SEC Defensive Player of the Year, recorded 137 tackles and had three sacks in '06. A complete package that goes sideline to sideline, Willis will pay immediate dividends for the Rams' often inconsistent defense. The Rams brought in Drew Bennett, Randy McMichael and Travis Minor to bolster the offense through free agency. They'll focus on defense here. A linebacker that does it all, Willis is the perfect pick at 13.


    14. Panthers- Reggie Nelson S Florida Junior 14th SAME 13th / 14th
    Nelson solidified his spot as a top pick with a 4.35 40 at Florida 's Pro Day last week. Scouts walked away impressed. A star in 2006 on the national champion Gators' defense, Nelson can start as a rookie for whichever team drafts him. Carolina's a logical fit. Quiet in the free agency game thus far, John Fox will look to bolster his hit-or-miss secondary with the kid out of Gainesville.


    15. Steelers- Paul Posluszny LB Penn State Senior 15th SAME 15th / 25th
    I caught a little slack from readers last week for having "Poz" rated this high on my board. Hey, I stand behind it. Posluszny's a Western Pennsylvania kid who will become an instant favorite of the Steelers faithful. The Rooney's will love the kid. With Joey Porter gone to Miami, the tireless worker and former Bednariak and Butkus award winner could fill the void at linebacker for the Steelers. Look for Mike Tomlin and Co. to lock up another player on the defensive side of the ball. Linebacker is a definite need and Posluszny will be an immediate contributor. Just how he will fit in Tomlin's scheme is still unknown but I see the Steelers taking the risk and finding out.


    16. Packers- Marshawn Lynch RB California Junior 16th SAME 14th / 20th
    One of the few picks all the mock drafts on the Internet seem to agree on. With Ahman Green gone to the Texans, the Packers will undoubtedly be looking to fill their starting running back position in April. Lynch is the perfect running back for the West Coast offense, a superb rusher and a better than average receiver. The golf-cart riding All-Pac 10 performer answered questions about his speed and work ethic with an impressive combine performance in Indianapolis. This is a no-brainer...unless, of course, Adrian Peterson is somehow still on the board.


    17. Jaguars- Michael Griffin S Texas Senior 28th (+11) 17th / NR
    Arguably the quietest team this off-season (yes, that includes your squad, Giants fans), the Jaguars added OL Tony Pashos and WR Dennis Northcutt, while losing Deon Grant to free agency over the past month. The Northcutt signing isn't exactly like bringing in Jerry Rice or Lynn Swann so don't be surprised if the Jags go with one of the several first round-worthy receivers. However, the loss of Grant presents a void at the free safety spot, one that defensive-oriented head coach Jack Del Rio will most likely be looking to fill. Griffin's a gamer. An All-Big 12 performer in '06, he was known around the college ranks as one of the most effective tacklers in the game. As a senior, he recorded 116 tackles for the Longhorns. Let strong safety Donovan Darius serve as a mentor, and you've got a great teacher-student relationship down in Northern Florida.


    18. Bengals- Leon Hall CB Michigan Senior 18th SAME 8th / 18th
    With Brian Simmons and Kevin Kaesviharn both signing with New Orleans this off-season and Marcus Wilkins jumping to the Falcons, there are some definite holes to be filled on the Bengals defense. Hall's my number-one rated cornerback. I hate to use the word "lock-down", but Hall is, well, a "lock-down" corner. He wowed critics with 4.3 speed at the combine, and will be the first corner taken in the draft. If he's gone, look for Tennessee to consider either Darrelle Revis or Aaron Ross, instead. All three are character guys something especially important in Cincinnati these days.


    19. Titans- Darrelle Revis CB Pittsburgh Junior 19th SAME 9th / 19th
    I don't see Adam "Pacman" Jones playing for the Titans next season. Whether it be the league or the Titans, themselves, suspending the standout corner, I'd be shocked to see the troubled star suit up to play football on opening day. Newly signed Nick Harper will fill in admirably as a replacement, but that still leaves a gaping hole at the other corner spot. By his count, Revis was thrown at only 10-15 times all season, with two of those passes resulting in interceptions. His stock has been up and down a bit, mostly resulting from curiously opting not to run at the combine. But the Pitt star should still be one of the top corners off the board come April. As for Tennessee's glaring needs at wide receiver, the Titans brought in seldom-used sky-scraper Justin Gage from Chicago and not much else. The standard Meachem/Bowe/Ginn/Dwayne Jarrett quartet will get looks here, as well.


    20. Giants- Lawrence Timmons LB FSU Junior 20th SAME 17th / NR
    With all respect to Rachel Carson, the Giants really put a new spin on "Silent Spring" this off-season. Aside from signing Kamika Mitchell and re-signing Shaun O'Hara and trading for Reuben Droughns, there hasn't been a lot of noteworthy additions for Big Blue. Having brought in and missed out on Kevin Curtis and Drew Bennett in the free agent market, they failed to acquire Lance Briggs, Al Wilson, or Takeo Spikes via trade as well. As for their squad last year? LaVar Arrington, Tiki Barber, Tim Carter, Carlos Emmons, Jay Feely, Chad Morton, Luke Petigout, Visanthe Shiancoe, Frank Waker, and Bob Whitfield all will be doing other things in other places next season. Aside from defensive line, quarterback, and tight end the Giants have needs everywhere. Look for them to address the linebacker position, a spot that's been ravaged by injuries in recent years. If Willis and "Poz" are off the board, Timmons is a solid pick.


    21. Broncos- Adam Carriker DE Nebraska Senior 11th (-10) 11th / NR
    Denver's in the midst of yet another busy, productive off-season this year. Dre Bly, Daniel Graham, Patrick Ramsey, and Travis Henry were all added to the Denver roster in recent months. The Broncos defensive line could use improvement. The coaching staff loves 2006 fifth-round draft choice Elvis Dumervil, and has gotten great production out of a cast of Cleveland re-treads over the past two years. But the unit wore down towards the end of last season. Carriker will most definitely be on the squad's radar come April. Arguably the best player at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Carriker is widely considered one of the top 5 defensive linemen in the draft.


    22. Cowboys- Dwayne Jarrett WR USC Junior 22nd SAME 10th / 22nd
    Talk about an anomaly: Dwayne Jarrett's 2007 draft stock. Many other mock drafts on the Internet have Jarrett slipping to the second round. I'm sorry, but that's ridiculous. Sure, he's been a bit cantankerous in his interviews, and yes his questionable workout speeds have scouts scratching their heads. But for one of college football's most decorated, most clutch big-game receivers of all-time to slip out of the first round there better be a serious, overwhelming reason as to why. I don't see any. And the Cowboys who have been as active this off-season as any other squad in the league will jump at the chance to get a player with such potential. Let's face it the Cowboys starting wideouts, as good as they are, aren't getting any younger. Terrell Owens is 33. Terry Glenn is 34. They'll be looking for a new set of hands come April. Jerry Jones knows talent. And quite simply, Dwayne Jarrett is talent.


    23. Chiefs- Robert Meachem WR Tennessee Junior 26th (+3) 23rd / NR
    K.C. would be best suited to take the highest ranked wideout on their board at 23. That Samie Parker/Eddie Kennison combo hasn't exactly panned out over the past few seasons. Even though Robert Meachem is a projected top 10 pick on most other mock drafts, he may not be taken as soon as other draftniks are expecting. If Troy Williamson, Matt Jones, Chad Jackson, and Reggie Williams have shown us anything it's that a good performance at the combine isn't the end-all, be-all in determining the value of a wideout. That said, if he's sitting there at 23 K.C. would be wise to scoop Meachem up and feature him as one of their two starting receivers on opening day.



    24. Patriots (from Seahawks)- Jarvis Moss LB/DE Florida Senior 21st (-3) 21st / NR
    You've likely already read the various columns by Adam Schein on this site, Peter King's take elsewhere, and every other piece of text coming from Boston in the past few weeks. Yes, the Patriots did well this off-season. Without giving up either of their two first round picks, New England picked up valuable contributors in Adalius Thomas, Sammy Morris, Wes Welker, Donte Stallworth, Kyle Brady, and Kelley Washington this off-season. They also quietly re-signed key role players Larry Izzo and Heath Evans. There's no doubt whether or not the Patriots got better this off-season. However, no one's handing the AFC over to them just yet either. These two first round picks will make an incredible difference over the next few years. Look for the Pats to pick up another defensive player at the 24 spot, one that can play a variety of positions in the 3-4, through the draft. Moss will probably play DE at the next level, but could also potentially be used as a linebacker. One of the defensive leaders on a loaded Florida defense, Bill Belichick and Co. would love to add him to their new and improved roster.


    25. Jets- Aaron Ross CB Texas Senior 25th SAME 25th / NR
    The Jets, like their AFC East opponents, have been extremely active this off-season. Aside from bringing in Thomas Jones, New York signed Darian Barnes, Kenyon Coleman, Michael Haynes, a backup quarterback in Marques Tuiasosopo, and took a gamble on Andre Wadsworth. And through all that they still didn't address their greatest need: cornerback. Ross was arguably the best cornerback in college football last season. In '06, he was the Longhorns defensive leader, intercepting six balls and racking up 80 tackles. Based on who the Jets have on their roster now, Ross could very well start for New York next season.


    26. Eagles- Dwayne Bowe WR LSU Senior 23rd (-3) 23rd / NR
    The loss of Michael Lewis to San Francisco shouldn't be as damaging a blow as Eagles fans seem to be imagining on the message boards. Towards the end of last season, Sean Considine had already replaced Lewis in the starting lineup, making valuable contributions throughout Philly's magical December run. He's a starting NFL safety. The often-criticized wideout spot may not be in such disarray either. The loss of Donte Stallworth hurts, but in comes Kevin Curtis a worthy replacement. That said, if one of the top-tier wideouts after Johnson Ginn, Jarrett, Bowe, or Meachem is still around by the time Philly's on the clock at 26, I can't see the Eagles going elsewhere with the pick. Bowe is the best blocking receiver out of the bunch, and showed off glue-like hands in Mobile during the Senior Bowl workouts. He'd work out well in the Eagle offense. Not a huge need but arguably the best player left on the board.


    27. Saints- Chris Houston CB Arkansas Senior 27th SAME 27th / NR
    New Orleans beefed up its defense through free agency by signing former Bengals Brian Simmons and Kevin Kaesviharn. Yet, they lost safety Omar Stoutmire, linebacker Brian Clark, and still have some uncertainty at the cornerback position. Houston's draft stock skyrocketed at the Combine. The former Razorback ran a mind-numbing 4.32 40, and benched 225 pounds 27 times the most of any of the defensive backs in Indianapolis. A standout in '06 for the SEC West Champions, Houston could likely start in front of Fred Thomas and Jason Craft as soon as next year.


    28. Patriots- Eric Weddle CB/S Utah Senior NR 28th / NR
    Probably two rounds too high in most draftniks' minds, but Bill Belichick doesn't pick based on draftniks' minds. Weddle, Utah's do-everything star in '06, is the prototypical Belichick guy. Able to do whatever's needed at whatever position, he's the next decade's version of Troy Brown. At Utah in '06, Weddle not only had 58 tackles and six interceptions at safety, but also rushed for 144 yards and scored four touchdowns at tailback. Weddle's played both corner and safety for the Utes' defense over the past few seasons but can be slotted in wherever he's asked. He's got special teams demon written all over him. Again, this may be a little high but I wouldn't be shocked if New England grabbed him when they could. That's the luxury of having two first round picks.

    29. Ravens- Justin Blalock OT Texas Senior 29th SAME 22nd / NR
    Blalock's an All-Big 12 performer who played in several important games as a collegiate star. Able to likely play tackle or guard, the 6-foot-4 330-pound force makes sense at 29. Baltimore may also look at Ben Grubbs, Joe Staley, or Tony Ugoh in this spot.


    30. Chargers- Jon Beason LB Miami Junior NR 30th / NR
    The Chargers' off-season transaction list looks about as full as the team's Super Bowl trophy pantry. Empty. Barren. Nothing. It's one thing to like your squad, which had the best regular season record in the NFL in '06. It's another to not add a single noteworthy free agent over the off-season. San Diego will look to address whatever needs they have via the draft. If any of the top five receivers slip to 30, the Chargers may make a play. If not, look for them to try to pick up a linebacker, a unit hurt by the loss of Donnie Edwards in the off-season. Beason, considered "undersized" by some, will likely be one of the top five linebackers taken on Day One.

    31. Bears- Greg Olsen TE Miami Junior 31st SAME 16th / NR
    Olsen ran a 4.45 40-yard dash and had a solid day catching the ball at the combine in Indianapolis back in February. Though he had a less than dazzling junior season, he'll likely still be the first tight end taken. Desmond Clark's not going anywhere, but he isn't getting any younger either. Olsen could get touches as soon as next year. The Jets pick (via Washington) in the second round allows Chicago to take a bit of a risk here.

    32. Colts- Anthony Spencer LB/DE Purdue Senior 24thj (-8) 24th / NR
    The Colts lost Nick Harper, Dominic Rhodes, Brandon Stokley, and Cato June to free agency. They released 2006 defensive contributors Montae Reagor and Dexter Reid. Their big addition? Third string quarterback John Navarre. Look for Indy to re-load on the defensive side of the ball come draft time. Spencer can play both linebacker and defensive end, and fits the Big 10-heavy feel of Tony Dungy's defense.


    I think that this could be a plausable draft. The only think that I question is if we would pass on Adam Carriker for Patrick Willis.

    Re: Could this really be the way tha the first pans out?

    I would be happy with this pick, but to pass on Carriker with his size, speed & versatility & are need on the d-line would be crazy in my opinion.

    Re: Could this really be the way tha the first pans out?

    Pretty much any pick on defense would be great. DE can be Anderson, DL can be Carriker or Okoye, LB can be Willis, S can be Landry.

    I think CB may be one of the only spots on D we stay away from in the 1st round.

    Rams need D line more than LB, but I like Willis more than Carriker. Either would be a fine pick. I don't think Carriker is slipping to 21, but I'd take Willis first.

    Re: Could this really be the way tha the first pans out?

    Personally I don't see the Lions taking Thomas since they've got a lot of money invested in Backus and just traded for Foster. Also, I'm not sure Miami takes Okoye as I don't think he's the best fit in a 3-4 defense. Maybe as a defensive end, but I don't think it's the best use of his pass rushing ability. So changing those two picks would shake a lot of things up.

    The fact that the Dan Wilkinson deal with Denver could mean Miami won't plan on going with a DT in the first, improving the possibilities of either Branch or Okoye falling into our laps.
