2008 NFL Draft Open Thread Part II

New, comments

3:18- Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy to the Buffalo Bills.

A bit of a shocker considering everyone thought they would go receiver there.  McKelvin was thought by a lot of people, me included in the MCM mock draft to go to the Patriots.  Probably a good value there.

3:23- Ryan Clady, OT, Boise St. to the Broncos

The tackles will start flying off the board now. The Titans might have their pick of receiver at #24 if they want it.

3:28- Jonathan Stewart, RB, Oregon to the Carolina Panthers.

DeAngelo Williams has been a bit of a bust for the Panthers so this pick is not a huge surprise. The only surprise is that he went ahead of Rashard Mendenhall.

3:36-Chris Williams, OT, Vanderbilt to the Chicago Bears

Williams is a smart player. I think he will be a very good NFL tackle. He does need to get a little nastier according to some, but I think he is ready to be a good player.

3:42- The Chiefs have acquired 15 from the Detroit Lions and select Branden Albert, OL, Virginia.

When was the last time 2 Virginia players went in the top 15?

3:53- Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, TSU to the Arizona Cardinals

DRC has all the tools to be a good corner. Two corners from small schools in the top 16..

3:58- Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College

It is a bit of a surprise that he goes ahead of Otah, but we are talking about the Lions.

4:00- The Ravens have traded up to #18 and it looks like they are going to take Joe Flacco, QB, Delaware

That seems to be quite a reach to me. Is he a better prospect than Brady Quinn who nobody wanted last season?

4:10The Eagles have traded #19 to the Panthers and they select Jeff Otah, OT, Pittsburgh.

Not a bad day for the Panthers picking up a running back and an offensive tackle.

4:19- Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The good news is that they did not take a receiver.

4:28- The Redskins trade the pick to the Falcons who select Sam Baker, OT, USC

It will be interesting to see what they gave up to get him. This is a huge draft for the Falcons if they end up with a franchise quarterback and left tackle.

4:38- Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas

Don't be surprised if the Titans take Rashard Mendenhall.

4:44- Rashard Mendenhall, RB Illinois to the Pittsburgh Steelers

The Titans are on the clock, and I have no idea where they are going.

4:50- Are you kidding me? We just drafted Chris Henry again.
