6.)Denver (from Washington)
DE - Mathias Kiwanuka - Boston College
OT - Max Jean-Gilles - Georgia
This will be excellent. I have some sore feelings regarding Jean-Gilles but ill put them aside once he dons the Orange and Blue. He is a pretty talented guy. Should lose a little weight though. Kiwi would be a great pick.
5. AJ Hawk (D'Brickshaw goes 6th)
23. Orien Harris
AJ Hawk is a fine player, perhaps the top LB (although i like Ernie Sims a little more) but as CO noted we are already full at LB, although i would be very happy to have a guy like AJ if we never picked up Gold. Orien in the late first would be solid. He needs to turn it on this year.
1. Denver Broncos: Matt Leinart, QB, USC
Denver got away with armed robbery when the Redskins surrendered their first-round pick to them prior to the 2005 Draft. Washington is the worst team in the NFL. Sooner or later, Mike Shanahan has to realize that Jake Plummer is not the answer at quarterback. If he has the opportunity to take Matt Leinart, he should.
10. Denver Broncos: Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio State
Rod Smith will be 36 in May 2006, and other than him, Ashley Lelie and Darius Watts, the Broncos have nothing at wide receiver.
Ugh. Leinart....Holmes is a good WR but he isnt a thick, tall possession type that we need. He is similar to Watts. He just isnt what we need although he is talented.
4- Washington Redskins (moron) - Matthias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College
Can you think of another Redskin need besides a speed pass-rusher? I mean, besides a coach that's stuck in the 80's.
22 - Denver Broncos - Jesse Mahelona, DT, Tennessee
They just had to see for themselves when it came to Gerard Warren being an underachieving slacker. They've seen enough.
Mahelona was very impressive last year at UT. Gotta see if he is more than a one year wonder though. If he plays just as well as last year i would have no problem whatsoever taking him in the late first. Kiwi and Jesse would be a great tandem.
