Few comments:

- I think you have Moreno, Wells and Freeman going way to high. Freeman has looked awful at the combine. I shouldn't say awful, but very raw. I think the pre-draft thought was that he would be this years Flacco, but he is just not that far advanced. Anybody who takes him before rd 2 is getting ripped off. Moreno and Wells are the top 2 backs, but neither of them are franchise type players. I think we will see a LOT of non-skill position players taken in the first few rounds.

2. Det probably will take Stafford, but that is a huge mistake. In last years draft, he would have been the 3rd best QB, possibly 4th. Lets try to develop Stanton before you pick a new future QB...the poor guy cant even get a chance.

3. KC should not take a QB...Am I the only person in the would who was impressed by Thigpen? Thigpen was drafted out of a small school as a project and he is starting to come around...he can run and he can throw. He had a bad o-line, a weak running game, and a bunch of cast-offs at WR, not to mention the fact that he cliked with Tony G. He needs to play, and KC needs so many other things that they do not need to take a marginal QB with the 3rd overall pick. They aren't going anywhere, so draft a lineman or a linebacker and give Thigpen a year as the starter. If I'm wrong and he doesn't pan out, then look for a FA next offseason or a stud in the draft.

Moreno, Wells, and Freeman may be higher than their talent is, but that doesn't mean they won't be taken where they are, due to team's needs. Freeman didn't look awful at the combine, he looked raw, but showed flashes of what he can do if he turns out to be good. McCoy is the best back in my opinion of this class, but the RB class is fairly week. You could see guys like Shonn Green of Iowa or Donald Brown of UConn being steals the later they get picked.

I agree that Detroit should not pick Stafford, but think they will.

Thigpen sucks.

The wide receivers this year look really good, best in a while, I wouldn't mind the Eagles taking one with their 2nd round pick, or even jumping up into the mid 2nd round if Hakeem Nicks, or Kenny Britt is there. They may be able to grab a Derrick Williams late in the 2nd round, who I think has a great upside, but hes another smaller receiver.

Still a ways to go, but good stuff on the Mock version 1.0.

A DE to Indy?

DE (along with TE and QB) is one of the spots they are set. They have a great 3 man rotation at DE with Pro Bowler Freeney and Mathis, plus DT/DE Raheem Brock playing outside on run downs. They have depth there with last years rookie Mathis clones, Marcus Howard and Curtis Johnson. Nicks, McCoy or Britton would all fit needs better. Indy loves being able to go 3 wide with Clark at TE to tear up Ds on 3rd down and in the 2 minute drill, Addai has struggled with injuries since a great first 1.5 years in the league, at the tackles Ugoh has been inconsistent and Diem was flat out awful at RT.

This year's QB class is gonna blow. Matt Stafford is the best of the best and even he's not a sure lock to be a stud. I know that USC is a top tier program but c'mon, Mark Sanchez are you serious?? This guy is Joey Harrington waiting to happen. And I agree that Josh Freeman is not a 1st round pick. He's a guy with some skill but he is atleast 2 years from being a productive QB at the next level.

With the Seahawks recent free agent signing of T.J. Houshmandzadeh, I find it highly unlikely that you'll see Seattle use their first pick on Crabtree. Look for him to drop to number 7, where "Kookie Al" Davis will gladly relieve the league of the best player available in this draft.

I think the giants pick a tall WR like Kenny Brits of Rutgers physical guy ,hit hard!! or Brian Robiskie of USC this guy have excellent hands and don't have fear in falling down, that is great in a WR
