3.) BuffaloTop needs: (OT, OLB, QB, ILB) The Bills have 9 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7) The Bills have been a mess for a while bad drafting and team management can be the key blame.

2008: Keith Rivers (LB – USC)

5.) ArizonaTop needs (OLB, QB, OG, TE) The Cardinals have 8 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 7) The Cardinals went down hill fast after their magical Super Bowl run two season ago. The loss of Kurt Warner to retirement left the Cardinals leaning on often criticized Matt Leinart. Will they try to change their future with a quarterback?

2009: Beanie Wells (RB – Ohio State)

2008: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (CB – Tennessee State)

2008: None

2007: Joe Thomas (OT – Wisconsin), Brady Quinn (QB – Notre Dame)

2002: William Green (RB – Boston College)

Final verdict: PICK Julio Jones (WR – Alabama) also could go with Robert Quinn (DE – North Carolina)

7.) San FranciscoTop needs: (QB, CB, WR, DL) The 49ers have 12 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 7) The 49ers are about fed up with the inconsistent play from their former first overall pick Alex Smith at quarterback. It’s time for them to look towards a new future under center.

2010: Anthony Davis (OT – Rutgers), Mike Iupati (OG – Idaho)

2009: Michael Crabtree (WR – Georgia Tech)

2008: Kentwan Balmer (DE – North Carolina)

2002: Mike Rumph (CB – Miami)

Final verdict: PICK Blaine Gabbert (QB – Missouri) also could go with Prince Amukamara (CB – Nebraska)

8.) TennesseeTop needs: (QB, DE, S, OG) The Titans have 9 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7) The Titans just lost the longest tenured coach in the past two decades in Jeff Fisher and no one knows which direction the franchise will go in, nor draft in.

2010: Derrick Morgan (DE – Georgia Tech)

2009: Kenny Britt (WR – Rutgers)

2008: Chris Johnson (RB – East Carolina)

2007: Michael Griffin (DB – Texas)

2006: Vince Young (QB – Texas)

2005: Adam Jones (CB – West Virginia)

2004: None

2003: Andre Woolfolk (CB – Oklahoma)

2002: Albert Haynesworth (DT – Tennessee)

Final verdict: PICK Nick Fairley (DT – Auburn) also could go with Jake Locker (QB – Washington)

9.) DallasTop needs: (S, OT, CB, DE) The Cowboys have 8 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 7) The Cowboys had a rough season that many fans would like to forget, but with a top-1o draft pick this year Jerry Jones looks to improve his already multi-talented squad.

2010: Dez Bryant (WR – Oklahoma State)

2009: None

2008: Felix Jones (RB – Arkansas), Mike Jenkins (CB – South Florida)

2007: Anthony Spencer (LB – Purdue)

2002: Roy Williams (S – Oklahoma)

Final verdict: PICK Tyron Smith (OT – USC) also could go with Anthony Castonzo (OT – Boston College)

10.) WashingtonTop needs: (QB, OLB, WR, DL) The Redskins have 8  selections (1, 2, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 7) A major concern for Mike Shanahan’s Skins this season is which direction at quarterback they will take. Donovan McNabb didn’t seem to be what Coach Shanahan had in mind by benching him for backup Rex Grossman with a few weeks left in the season. Do they draft a quarterback in the first round?

2010: Trent Williams (OT – Oklahoma)

2009: Brian Orakpo (OLB – Texas)

2008: None

2007: LaRon Landry (DB – LSU)

2006: None

2005: Carlos Rogers (CB – Auburn), Jason Campbell (QB – Auburn)

2004: Sean Taylor (S – Miami)

2003: None

2002: Patrick Ramsey (QB – Tulane)

Final verdict: Robert Quinn (DE/OLB – North Carolina) also could go with J.J. Watt (DE – Wisconsin)

11.) HoustonTop needs: (CB, OLB, S) The Texans have 8 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7) The Texans are that team that are always on the verge of putting up 30 every game with Matt Schaub/Andre Johnson leading the offense. Recently they have drafted early and often, they are hoping for a great season this year and to draft hopefully later next season.

2010: Kareem Jackson (CB – Alabama)

2009: Brian Cushing (OLB – USC)

2008: Duane Brown (OT – Virginia Tech)

2007: Amobi Okoye (DT – Louisville)

2006: Mario Williams (DE – North Carolina State)

2005: Travis Johnson (DT – Florida State)

2004: Dunta Robinson (CB – South Carolina), Jason Babin (DE – Western Michigan)

2003: Andre Johnson (WR – Miami)

2002: David Carr (QB – Fresno State)

Final verdict: PICK Aldon Smith (DE/OLB – Missouri) also could go with Prince Amukamara (CB – Nebraska) 

12.) MinnesotaTop needs: (QB, S, CB) The Vikings have 9 selections (1, 2, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7) The Vikings changed coaches half way through a dismal season and Brett Favre is now “retired.” Once again I will say, do they draft a quarterback?

2010: None

2009: Percy Harvin (WR – Florida)

2008: None

2007: Adrian Peterson (RB – Oklahoma)

2006: Chad Greenway (LB – Iowa)

2004: Kenechi Udeze (DE – USC)

2003: Kevin Williams (DT – Oklahoma State)

2002: Bryant McKinnie (OT – Miami)

Final verdict: PICK Jake Locker (QB – Washington) also could go with Da’Quan Bowers (DE – Clemson)

13.) DetroitTop needs: (OLB, CB, WR) The Lions have 6 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7) The Lions are finally on the right track, or so it seems to the naked eye. Ndamukong Suh seemed to be that key stepping stone towards being back at a .500 team (6-10 last season). Linebacker and corner back are the top two needs for the Lions in this year’s draft, they should take the best available prospect at either position.

2010: Ndamukong Suh (DT – Nebraska), Jahvid Best (RB – California)

2009: Matthew Stafford (QB – Georgia), Brandon Pettigrew (TE – Oklahoma State)

2008: Gosder Cherilus (OT – Boston College)

2007: Calvin Johnson (WR – Georgia Tech)

2006: Ernie Sims (LB – Florida State)

2005: Mike Williams (WR – USC)

2003: Charles Rogers (WR – Michigan State)

2002: Joey Harrington (QB – Oregon)

Final verdict: PICK Prince Amukamara (CB – Nebraska) also could go with Anthony Castonzo (OT – Boston College)

14.) St. LouisTop needs: (DT, S, WR) The Rams have 7 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 7) The Rams have found there rock, Sam Bradford looks to be the real deal as he rocketed the Rams from a first overall draft choice last year to a middle of the draft team this year. Bradford led the Rams all the way to the final week of the season where they had a chance to win their way into the playoffs over Seattle and fell short. They were one win shy of being a playoff team. Not a bad turn around with a rookie quarterback.

2010: Sam Bradford (QB – Oklahoma)

2009: Jason Smith (OT – Baylor)

2008: Chris Long (DE – Virginia)

2007: Adam Carriker (DE – Nebraska)

2006: Tye Hill (CB – Clemson)

2005: Alex Barron (OT – Florida State)

2004: Steven Jackson (RB – Oregon State)

2003: Jimmy Kennedy (DT – Penn State)

2002: Robert Thomas (LB – UCLA)

Final verdict: PICK Corey Liuget (DT – Illinois) also could go with Ryan Kerrigan (DE/OLB – Purdue)

15.) MiamiTop needs: (RB, OL, QB) The Dolphins have 8 selections (1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7, 7) The Dolphins are much like the Titans in which you have no idea what to expect from this team. Quarterback and running back seem to be their major concerns in this draft along with protecting whomever their gunslinger will be. Defensively they are pretty solid.

2010: Jared Odrick (DE – Penn State)

2009: Vontae Davis (CB – Illinois)

2008: Jake Long (OT – Michigan)

2007: Ted Ginn Jr. (WR – Ohio State)

2006: Jason Allen (DB – Tennessee)

2005: Ronnie Brown (RB – Auburn)

2004: Vernon Carey (OT – Miami)

2003: None

2002: None

Final verdict: PICK Mike Pouncey (C/OG – Florida) also could go with Mark Ingram (RB – Alabama)

16.) JacksonvilleTop needs: (S, LB, DE) The Jaguars have 7 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6) The Jags have the tools to be a playoff team with just a few more pieces to fit their puzzle. David Garrard is solid under helm with Maurice Jones-Drew running it and Mike Sims-Walker, Mike Thomas and Mercedes Lewis all decent options for Garrard. Defense is where they need to put their draft focus.

2010: Tyson Alualu (DT – California)

2009: Eugene Monroe (OT – Virginia)

2008: Derrick Harvey (DE – Florida)

2007: Reggie Nelson (S – Florida)

2006: Mercedes Lewis (TE – UCLA)

2005: Matt Jones (WR – Arkansas)

2004: Reggie Williams (WR – Washington)

2003: Byron Leftwich (QB – Marshall)

2002: John Henderson (DT – Tennessee)

Final verdict: PICK Ryan Kerrigan (DE/OLB – Purdue) also could go with Brooks Reed (DE – Arizona)

17.) New EnglandTop needs: (DE, OL, OLB) The Patriots have 9 selections (1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 6) The Pats have a few different needs as listed and thats about it. New England is looking pretty good with their 9 picks with 6 of them being in the first three rounds. Their first two picks in the first round though should be two of the three listed. The Pats also pick late in this round.

2010: Devin McCourty (CB – Rutgers)

2009: None

2008: Jerod Mayo (LB – Tennessee)

2007: Brandon Meriweather (DB – Miami)

2006: Laurence Maroney (RB – Minnesota)

2005: Logan Mankins (OL – Fresno State)

2004: Vince Wilfork (NT – Miami), Benjamin Watson (TE – Georgia)

2003: Ty Warren (DT – Texas A&M)

2002: None

Final verdict: PICK Cameron Jordan (DE – California) also could go with J.J. Watt (DE – Wisconsin)

18.) San DiegoTop needs: (DE, WR, ILB) The Chargers have 8 selections (1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 6, 6, 7) The Bolts, much like the previous pick New England, have many picks in the first three rounds. Their interior defense could use some help along at the wide-out position which was depleted the majority of their season with injuries.

2010: Ryan Mathews (RB – Fresno State)

2009: Larry English (OLB – Northern Illinois)

2008: Antione Cason (CB – Arizona)

2007: Buster Davis (WR – LSU)

2006: Antonio Cromartie (CB – Florida State)

2005: Shawne Merriman (OLB – Maryland), Luis Castillo (DT – Northwestern)

2004: Philip Rivers (QB – North Carolina State)

2003: Sammy Davis (CB – Texas A&M)

2002: Quentin Jammer (CB – Texas)

Final verdict: PICK J.J. Watt (DE – Wisconsin) also could go with Muhammad Wilkerson (DE /DT – Temple)

19.) N.Y. GiantsTop needs: (OL, OLB, CB) The Giants have 8 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 6, 6, 7) The G-Men on offense are set for a while, barring their running backs stay and sign longer terms with the team, but that’s a conversation for a different draft. Their offensive line however does need a few tweaking after years of being the top dogs in the league as a well oiled unit. Also on defense linebacker has been issue for a while since Antonio Pierce retired.

2010: Jason Pierre-Paul (DE – South Florida)

2009: Hakeem Nicks (WR – North Carolina)

2008: Kenny Phillips (S – Miami)

2007: Aaron Ross (DB – Texas)

2006: Mathias Kiwanuka (DE – Boston College)

2005: None

2004: Eli Manning (QB – Mississippi)

2003: William Joseph (DT – Miami)

2002: Jeremy Shockey (TE – Miami)

Final verdict: PICK Anthony Castonzo (OT – Boston College) also could go with Gabe Carimi (OL – Wisconsin)

20.) Tampa BayTop needs: (DE, OL, MLB) The Buccaneers have 8 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7) The Bucs took huge strides with Josh Freeman this past year, being one of the most surprising and consistent quarterbacks. They just missed out on the playoffs but put their foot in the winning circle with a unbelievale year, for a team that everyone intended would have been a top five draft pick this year.

2010: Gerald McCoy (DT – Oklahoma)

2009: Josh Freeman (QB – Kansas State)

2008: Aqib Talib (CB – Kansas)

2007: Gaines Adams (DE – Clemson)

2006: Davin Joseph (OG – Oklahoma)

2005: Carnell Williams (RB – Auburn)

2004: Michael Clayton (WR – LSU)

2003: None

2002: None

Final verdict: PICK Justin Houston (DE/OLB – Georgia) also could go with Jimmy Smith (CB – Colorado)

21.) Kansas CityTop needs: (WR, OT, NT) The Chiefs have 8 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 7) The Chiefs made huge strides much like the Bucs did this past season. They made the playoffs as the AFC West winners and shocked us all by beating up on the Chargers. There are a couple different directions the Chiefs can go in.

2010: Eric Berry (S – Tennessee)

2009: Tyson Jackson (DE – LSU)

2008: Glenn Dorsey (DT – LSU), Branden Albert (OT – Virginia)

2007: Dwayne Bowe (WR – LSU)

2006: Tamba Hali (DE – Penn State)

2005: Derrick Johnson (LB – Texas)

2004:  None

2003: Larry Johnson (RB – Penn State)

2002: Ryan Sims (DT – North Carolina)

Final verdict: PICK Akeem Ayers (OLB – UCLA) also could go with Nate Solder (OT – Colorado)

22.) IndianapolisTop needs: (OT, DT, WR) The Colts have 6 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) The Colts are starting to get old, especially on the offensive line. It’s time to start a youth movement there as well on the interior defensive line to help out Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis on the edges.

2010: Jerry Hughes (DE – TCU)

2009: Donald Brown (RB – Connecticut)

2008: None

2007: Anthony Gonzalez (WR – Ohio State)

2006: Joseph Addai (RB – LSU)

2005: Marlin Jackson (CB – Michigan)

2004: None

2003: Dallas Clark (TE – Iowa)

2002: Dwight Freeney (DE – Syracuse)

Final verdict: PICK Nate Solder (OT – Colorado) also could go with Muhammad Wilkerson (DT – Temple)

23.) PhiladelphiaTop needs: (CB, OL, OLB) The Eagles have 10 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5, 7, 7, 7) The Eagles are bound to have another great year as long as they can upgrade at linebacker and corner. Its been four years since they tried getting an offensive lineman as well. They could also go there to give more protection for Michael Vick.

2010: Brandon Graham (DE – Michigan)

2009: Jeremy Maclin (WR – Missouri)

2008: None

2007: None

2006: Broderick Bunkley (DT – Florida State)

2005: Mike Patterson (DT – USC)

2004: Shawn Andrews (OL – Arkansas)

2003: Jerome McDougle (DE – Miami)

2002: Lito Sheppard (CB – Florida)

Final verdict: PICK Jimmy Smith (CB – Colorado) also could go with Gabe Carimi (OL – Wisconsin)

24.) New OrleansTop needs: (OLB, DE, DT) The Saints have 6 selections (1, 2, 3, 3, 7, 7) Seattle Seahawks … yep the Seattle Seahawks beat them in the playoffs; that is a strong bad scent left in the Saints’ mouth. Drew Brees didn’t have that typical Drew Brees year we all expected. They will definitely have the talent to get back to the Super Bowl and they need a top notch pass rusher.

2010: Patrick Robinson (CB – Florida State)

2009: Malcolm Jenkins (DB – Ohio State)

2008: Sedrick Ellis (DT – USC)

2007: Robert Meachem (WR – Tennessee)

2006: Reggie Bush (RB – USC)

2005: Jammal Brown (OT – Oklahoma)

2004: Will Smith (DE – Ohio State)

2003: Johnathan Sullivan (DT – Georgia)

2002: Donte’ Stallworth (WR – Tennessee), Charles Grant (DE – Georgia)

Final verdict: PICK Da’Quan Bowers (DE – Clemson) also could go with Adrian Clayborn (DE/DT – Iowa)

25.) SeattleTop needs: (OL, CB, QB) The Seahawks have 8 selections (1, 2, 4, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7) New Orleans Saints … yep the Saints were beaten in the playoffs by the .500 Seahawks. Need I say more. Fluke. Time to build up that O-line and get a corner and a quarterback as well.

2010: Russell Okung (OT – Oklahoma State), Earl Thomas (S – Texas)

2009: Aaron Curry (LB – Wake Forest)

2008: Lawrence Jackson (DE – USC)

2007: None

2006: Kelly Jennings (CB – Miami)

2005: Chris Spencer (C – Mississippi)

2004: Marcus Tubbs (DT – Texas)

2003: Marcus Trufant (CB – Washington State)

2002: Jerramy Stevens (TE – Washington)

Final verdict: PICK Derek Sherrod (OT – Mississippi State) also could go with Marvin Austin (DT – North Carolina)

26.) BaltimoreTop needs: (OT, WE, DE) The Ravens have 9 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7) The Ravens are a team to be reckon with for years to come, even though their defense is getting old. It’s time to use this first round pick on a defensive end, a strong big pass rusher.

2010: None

2009: Michael Oher (OT – Mississippi)

2008: Joe Flacco (QB – Delaware)

2007: Ben Grubbs (OG – Auburn)

2006: Haloti Ngata (DT – Oregon)

2005: Mark Clayton (WR – Oklahoma)

2004: None

2003: Terrell Suggs (DE – Arizona State), Kyle Boller (QB – California)

2002: Ed Reed (S – Miami)

2001: Todd Heap (TE – Arizona State)

Final verdict: PICK Cameron Heyward (DE – Ohio State) also could go with Gabe Carimi (OL – Wisconsin)

27.) AtlantaTop needs: (DE, CB, WR, TE) The Falcons have 9 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7, 7) The Falcons are a team that really don’t need much anywhere but to maybe train a young gun. Tony Gonzalez arguably the best tight end in NFL history could teach a rookie the ropes…

2010: Sean Weatherspoon (LB – Missouri)

2009: Peria Jerry (DT – Mississippi)

2008: Matt Ryan (QB – Boston College), Sam Baker (OT – USC)

2007: Jamaal Anderson (DE – Arkansas)

28.) New EnglandTop needs: (DE, OL, OLB) The Patriots have 9 selections (1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 6) The Pats have a few different needs as listed and thats about it. New England is looking pretty good with their 9 picks with 6 of them being in the first three rounds. Their first two picks in the first round though should be two of the three listed. The Pats also pick late in this round.

2007: Brandon Meriweather (DB – Miami)

2006: Laurence Maroney (RB – Minnesota)

2005: Logan Mankins (OL – Fresno State)

2004: Vince Wilfork (NT – Miami), Benjamin Watson (TE – Georgia)

2003: Ty Warren (DT – Texas A&M)

2002: None

Final verdict: PICK Mark Ingram (RB – Alabama) also could go with Gabe Carimi (OL – Wisconsin)

29.) ChicagoTop needs: (DE, OL, OLB) The Bears have 9 selections (1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 6) The Bears, much like the Dolphins and Titans are a team who know one expects to be great when they aren’t suppose to be. Recently they haven’t drafted much in the first round so it should be interesting to see their first pick since the 2008 draft.

2010: None

2009: None

2008: Chris Williams (OT – Vanderbilt)

2007: Greg Olsen (TE – Miami)

2006: None

2005: Cedric Benson (RB – Texas)

2004: Tommie Harris (DT – Oklahoma)

2003: Michael Haynes (DE – Penn State), Rex Grossman (QB – Florida)

2002: Marc Colombo (OT – Boston College)

Final verdict: PICK Gabe Carimi (OL – Wisconsin) also could go with Marvin Austin (DT – North Carolina)

30.) N.Y. Jets Top needs: (WR, OT, OLB) The Jets have 6 selections (1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) Jets have had a very good draft lately. Between Revis and Keller and Sanchez and dating back to 04′ Vilma was good while he was in New York as well. Wideout is a need for this team as well as offensive and an often injured defensive line.

2010: Kyle Wilson (CB – Boise State)

2009: Mark Sanchez (QB – USC)

2008: Vernon Gholston (OLB – Ohio State), Dustin Keller (TE – Purdue)

2007: Derrelle Revis (CB – Pittsburgh)

2006: D’Brickashaw Ferguson (OT – Virginia), Nick Mangold (C – Ohio State)

2005: None

2004: Jonathan Vilma (ILB – Miami)

2003: Dewayne Robertson (DT – Kentucky)

2002:Bryan Thomas (DE – UAB)

Final verdict: PICK Phil Taylor (NT – Baylor) also could go with Muhammad Wilkerson (DT – Temple)

31.) PittsburghTop needs: (CB, OL, DL) The Steelers have 7 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) Pittsburgh as well have done a great job in the draft lately. By far corner is their biggest need, and they shouldn’t even look anywhere else in the first round besides a defensive back.

2010: Maurkice Pouncey (C – Florida)

2009: Ziggy Hood (DL – Missouri)

2008: Rashard Mendenhall (RB – Illinois)

2007: Lawrence Timmons (LB – Florida State)

2006: Santonio Holmes (WR – Ohio State)

2005: Heath Miller (TE – Virginia)

2004: Ben Roethlisberger (QB – Miami-Ohio)

2003: Troy Polamalu (SS – USC)

2002: Kendall Simmons (OG – Auburn)

Final verdict: PICK Aaron Williams (CB – Texas) also could go with Brandon Harris (CB – Miami)

32.) Green BayTop needs: (OLB, WR, OL) The Packers have 9 selections (1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7) The reigning Super Bowl champion Packers could use more depth at wide-out (in the second round); Donald Driver’s career is dwindling down. Another pass rusher is a good option as well an outside linebacker.

2010: Bryan Bulaga (OT – Iowa)

2009: B.J. Raji (DT – Boston College), Clay Matthews (OLB – USC)

2008: None

2007: Justin Harrell (DT – Tennessee)

2006: A.J. Hawk (LB – Ohio State)

2005: Aaron Rodgers (QB – California)

2004: Ahmad Carroll (CB – Arkansas)

2003: Nick Barnett (LB – Oregon State)

2002: Javon Walker (WR – Florida State)
