Houston Texans, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia.

Lets be honest here. David Carr is a bit of an engima but that's only b/c he can't get to his 2nd step in a three step drop. He's been hit more than fellow Houstonian George Foreman and doesn't even have a grill named after him to show. They should name a whole freaking cooking range after David Carr for all the hits he takes! So anyhow, that's the reasoning for not taking Vince Young or Matt Leinart and one of many reasons for taking Da Brick over Homer. Bush is an electric RB and could instantly be one of the best in the league. BUT, Dom Davis puts up quality yards and Touchdowns behind a very suspect OL. With Kubiak in town you can expect the Texans to run more than ever and they already have the RB so that leaves a line to run behind.

New Orleans Saints, QB Vincent Young, Texas.
This makes sense. Like Randy Moss mentoring Terrell Owens or Rod Smith leaning on Michael Irvin for advice in life. I mean, you fail miserably with a running QB for years, why not bring another one to town. You have to feel for VY though, I'm sure he'd gladly return a couple million dollars to go to Tenn or NY. Hell, he'd probably give up 5 million to go to Detroit!

Aaron Brooks is all but gone. New Orleans has been eyeing Texas’ Vince Young. Young may not have the talent of Matt Leinart, but it’s a close race, and Young will bring more fans back into the renovated Superdome (even those from nearby Houston, Young's hometown) and hopefully rejuvenate a struggling franchise

With the 3rd overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, the Tennesee Titans select.............QB Matt Leinart, USC!


Strengths:
The consummate team leader and field general whose leadership abilities and intangibles are off the charts...Can dissect a defense with the best of them...Good size and a solid frame...Has good throwing mechanics...Shows excellent touch and puts the ball where is wideouts can make plays...Extremely productive...Has ice in his veins and seems to rise to the occasion in the biggest games...Tough player and a gamer...Very smart and makes good decisions...Mature young man with his head on straight...All he does is win...Is ready to start in the NFL now.

Weaknesses:
Durability is a concern since he had a major shoulder injury to his throwing arm in high school and then had elbow surgery prior to his senior campaign with the Trojans...Arm strength is adequate but nothing to write home about...Some question whether he is really as good as he has looked or more of a product of the system and supporting cast...Is not in Carson Palmer's class physically.

Notes:
Heisman Trophy winner who opted to return to school for his final year of eligibility despite being projected as the #1 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft...In the mold of Tom Brady as a guy who more than makes up for any physical shortcomings he may have with top intangibles...Will be one of the first players chosen and could be the type of guy you can build a franchise around.


Pick made at 9:58 AM Mountain Time

And Bush has fallen to #4. Very interesting. Looking forward to the Jets pick.

A quick write up on Leinart to TEN:

With the end of McNair's career as a Titan looming, Fisher grabs '04 Heisman winner Matt Leinart with the 3rd overall pick. Leinart is reunited with former collegiate offensive coordinator Norm Chow, now filling the same role for the Titans. With Bush still on the board it must have been a tough choice, but after spending a 3rd to acquire Travis Henry last year, as well as already having Chris Brown, the Titans were pretty set at the HB position. The same could have been said for the QB position with Volek on the roster, but apparently the organization does not see him as a long term answer. Leinart is very polished and also knows Chow's offense, its very possible he could win the starting job in camp and take the reins opening day.

Does this put Volek on the trade block? It would seem very likely. Matt Mauck started the last game of the season for the Titans.

Well, you still have until 8:58 PST/9:58 Mountain/10:58 CST/11:58 EST tomorrow morning. You can ofcourse make the pick after the time limit, its just that DB at #5 will also be able to make a pick at any time and if its the same player (Bush) it will just come down to who gets it in first.

If I'm the Jets, the only way I trade out from Reggie Bush is if I get a 1st this year, a 1st next year and a 2nd or 3rd this year to boot! This should be an even better deal than the one for Vick, Manning, or Ricky Williams!!!

If I get a total value of 2400 I would probably be inclined to pull the trigger. The Jets have too many holes and personally I'm not convinced that Bush would suit their system.

How would trading for future picks work? Technically shouldn't the trades done last year for draft picks carry over?

I believe you can only trade using this year's picks as assets (or rights to players already selected).

This is taking longer than chiseling out the history cavern at Mt. Rushmore. At this rate, the actual draft will be over before we get done with round one.

With the fourth pick the Jets select Reggie Bush.

The time is 8:25 CST

Damnit.

You can still trade for his rights however, similar to what was done last year.

The Packers are on the clock... whoever has the Pack... you have 30 seconds to make your pick. SoCal's 24 hour rule was just a hoax!

with the 5th pick in the draft the Packers take Mario Williams.

this pick happened feb 5, 10:44 CT zone.

Why Mario? KGB on one end and Williams on the other end should give me a Rucker/Peppers kind of pass rush.

Those were the players I though would go in the top 5, just a different order.
