2008 NFL Draft Open Thread Part III

It is going to take me a few minutes to gather myself to put together a post on Chris Johnson.  I am pretty much in shock with that pick.  He does help the Titans in the running game, and in theory he is the perfect compliment to LenDale White.  He is the only player on the Titans who has the chance to take it to the house every time he touches the ball.  More on that later...

Back to the open thread

5:00- The Seahawks trade the pick to the Cowboys who select Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida

Why do the Cowboys need a corner?  They just acquired Pacman Jones.

5:06- Duane Brown, OT, Virginia Tech to the Houston Texans

Mel Kiper loves him, but I have never heard of him.

5:10- Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona to the San Diego Chargers

I would have rather had him than Johnson.

5:16- Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC to the Seattle Seahawks

Good call by DonFrancisco

5:19- Kentwan Balmer, DT, North Carolina

Balmer would have helped the Titans.

5:28- The Packers traded pick #30 to the Jets who take Dustin Keller, TE, Purdue

Keller is the best tight end on the board. That is a pretty good pick.

5:34- Kenny Phillips, S, Miami to the New York Giants

This is a good value at #31. He is the best safety on the board and could make a Michael Griffin like impact.
