No way. It makes you realize how tough of a spot the niners were in last year. They did Alex Smith no favors by throwing him under the bus. The niners are destined to be bad for a while. They got rid of Rattay for peanuts when he was actually doing a decent job the first couple weeks. In my mock last year I had them taking Braylon Edwards. With a good QB he has a good career ahead of him.

Alex Smith, Chris Simms, Phil Rivers, Kyle Boller, Joey Harrington- IMO NONE of the aforementioned would be drafted in the first round this year! Well, at least not in the top 20, shall we say. However, I haven't given up on any of those guys yet. Boller and Harrington, some might say, have had their chances; and while that may be true, we all know it takes some QB's 5 years to "mature" into a decent NFL player. Sometimes just coaching makes a difference. Simms will get a good chance this year and Boller, well, who's to say. For sure though, both Rivers and Smith need more reps before being written off. I personally believe Alex will be a solid starter somewhere in the NFL after a few years and maybe a change of team; and Rivers may be starting this year right there in S.D., depending on what happens with Brees.

My pick of QB's this year, who IMO would have been # 1 picks in every draft to date if they'd been eligible, include only two- Jay Cutler and Matt Linehart (sp?). Cutler for his prototypical size, arm strength and manueverability, and Linehart for his leadership and accuracy. COACHING will be a great factor in each one's development, as will of course the TEAM that draft each one.

I think since 5 people have already traded down you might not get too many offers but good luck to you.

How can Denver trade up for a DT? Losing both firsts when we can put Warren in there and maybe still Pryce...if your going to trade up for DL, you get a pass rusher! I had the HornHeads trade up not only because Moss is gone but that Williamson looks more like Lelie every day.

This is going to be a controversial pick, but its a no-brainer to me.

With the eighteen pick in the NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select Lendale White, RB Southern California.



I thought long and hard about taking OT Winston Justice USC and WR Santonio Holmes but I am not completely sold on either one. I don't think either one will be an All-Pro. I didn't get any offers to trade down.

With the 19th pick the San Diego Chargers select :

Johnatan Scott OT Texas

Scott is 6'7" 310 I believe he is a better fit for San Diego than Justice from USC.

Pick was made at 6:35pm CST

Herc - You better reach for some fat a33 DT or small slow WR to make this a realistic pick.

Good pick Paul - he should have gone awhile ago. Nice value on your trade-down.

This draft played exactly the way i hoped and the Card's now take DeAngelo Williams, RB, University of Memphis.

I live close to Memphis and this guy is super explosive.I feel that i just came away with the #1 rb in this draft @ pick 22 and i was realy thinking i would have the #3 Rb in Marony.

Time is 10:15 Cst 02-09-06

Tampa Bay selects:

Tye Hill, CB, Auburn

Not the top need, but this guy is too valuable to pass on. Other priorities will still be there the next couple of picks.

Bucs pick made at 9:20 PM Mountain Time.
