| 2nd Round | 3rd Round
April 14, 2002
- QB David Carr, Fresno St.
Carr has a
big-time arm, he's mature, and a winner. Good player to build a franchise
- DE Julius Peppers, North Carolina
athlete who makes plays all over the field. Panthers would be willing to
move down though.
- CB Quentin Jammer, Texas
to trade down, but can't go wrong with this impact player.
- OT Bryant McKinnie, Miami (FL)
up a sack in his entire 4-year career and he still has a great upside.
5) San Diego
- OT Mike Williams, Texas
who is probably best suited at RT, but could be tried at LT.
6) Dallas -
CB Phillip Buchanon, Miami (FL)
Not the reach
you would assume, Buchanon not that far behind Jammer.
- DT Albert Haynesworth, Tennessee
Need an OT,
but Jones would be too high, so go with best player available.
8) Kansas City
- QB Joey Harrington, Oregon
a QB of the future, and the word is they are ga-ga over Joey.
- WR Donte Stallworth, Tennessee
release McCardell, and Stallworth would be a worthy compliment to All-Pro
- S Roy Williams, Oklahoma
need a corner more, but Williams could have even more of an impact right
- DT Ryan Sims, North Carolina
Coach Dungy immediately to sure up the run D in Indy.
- DT Wendall Bryant, Wisconsin
a lot of help on the D-line. Bryant would certainly be a force in the middle.
13) New Orleans
- DE Charles Grant, Georgia
Grant is skyrocketing
up most boards and potentially could even go higher.
- DT John Henderson, Tennessee
Fisk, but Henderson could potentially be an anchor for their defense for
a long time.
15) NY Giants
- TE Jeremy Shockey, Miami (FL)
better hands than a lot of receievers and runs very precise routes for
a tight end.
- RB William Green, Boston College
the hot name, but I think Green is still the better player.
- WR Ashley Lelie, Hawaii
and athletic receiver could be Vick's go-to guy his rookie year.
- OG Kendall Simmons, Auburn
pick to say the least. Let's just call this one a hunch.
- LB Napoleon Harris, Northwestern
Can only improve
Broncos depleted linebacking core.
- TE Daniel Graham, Colorado
out in the Shannon Sharpe sweepstakes, but Graham will soon make them forget.
(from Tampa Bay) - CB Lito Sheppard, Florida
with Woodson would be one of the most athletic corner combo's in recent
22) NY Jets
- S Ed Reed, Miami (FL)
all kinds of issues at safety, Reed is a proven winner, seems like a Herman
Edward's kind of guy.
- DE Dwight Freeney, Syracuse
climbing and could go higher, but would be a nice fit in Raiderland.
- WR Antonio Bryant, Pittsburgh
so many areas of need, but call it a hunch that Billick will go offense
and try to win his way.
25) New Orleans
(from Miami) - WR Josh Reed, LSU
This is why
the Saints won't go WR with their first pick; plenty of talented receivers
will be available at 26.
- RB T.J. Duckett, Michigan St.
He's too good
to pass on for a team without a "true" go-to back. Eagles don't have much
to fill anyway.
27) San Francisco
- CB Mike Rumph, Miami (FL)
Call it another
hunch, but 49er's are still another corner away from really competing for
28) Green Bay
- WR Jabar Gaffney, Florida
need nametags for all the new WR's he may be getting.
- DE Kalimba Edwards, South Carolina
off the corner just what the Bears need. Edwards is a steal this late in
- S Lamont Thompson, Washington St.
love to have Reed fall to them, but I don't see that happening. Thompson
is very good.
31) St. Louis
- OT Levi Jones, Arizona St.
Rams problem at RT and give them two very nice bookends.
32) New England
- OG Tonoi Fonoti, Nebraska
to New England more because of his talent at this pick; he could even start
- RB Clinton Portis, Miami (FL)
young legs to run behind an experienced o-line.
- WR Javon Walker, FSU
gets healthy it could be one Nole to another. Panthers need weapons to
- DE Bryan Thomas, UAB
go in the first, but if he falls here Lions could make him theirs.
- QB Patrick Ramsey, Tulane
may not be there man at 4, but Ramsey certainly would be hard to pass over
- WR Marquise Walker, Michigan
a big receiver. Walker's supposed lack of speed won't hurt Cowboys, who
- OT Mike Pearson, Florida
If they are
unable to get an OT in the first they will here. Pearson is a fine player.
39) San Diego
- OG Andre Gurode, Colorado
rebuilding project continues in San Diego. LT will be smiling after this
- DT Anthony Weaver, Notre Dame
a ton of needs, Weaver a solid player who can play tackle or end.
- CB Derek Ross, Ohio St.
secondary, continue building solid defense.
- LB Levar Fisher, NC State
form good tandem with Peterson. Colts could go with a safety or defensive
City - DT Larry Triplett, Washington
season with a lot of hype, but disappointed. Chiefs could give him the
chance for redemption.
44) New Orleans
- OT Terrance Metcalf, Mississippi
Falau, but he is not the answer, Metcalf could play tackle or guard.
45) NY Giants
- WR Reche Caldwell, Florida
out next year and they already lost J.J. to Tampa Bay.
- CB Keyou Craver, Nebraska
Did you see
the Titans secondary last year? Titans hope Rolle will bounce back, Craver
could be opposite.
47) San Diego
(from Atlanta) - WR Andre Davis, Virginia Tech
Davis is a
big play guy, Conway and Dwight are the only two experienced receivers
left on roster.
- OT Marc Colombo, Boston College
go many directions here, but injury riddled O-line needs help.
- DE Ryan Denney, BYU
to reshape defensive line. Wide receiver or another DT are options as well.
- DE Alex Brown, Florida
Would be a
nice pass rush specialist for Texans.
- S Michael Lewis, Colorado
good for Broncos to pass on, and they need safety help.
- DT Eddie Freeman, UAB
a defensive tackle and if they can't get a top one in the first they should
snag one here.
(from Tampa Bay) - LB Saleem Rasheed, Alabama
plays and Raiders defense needs some work.
- OT Victor Rogers, Colorado
physical attributes, Rogers could compete for starting job.
- TE Jarramy Stevens, Washington
He is a project, but doesn't Al Davis enjoy proving people wrong.
- CB Mike Echols, Wisconsin
knows? Baltimore needs so much, they could go best player available every
57) NY Jets
- LB James Allen, Oregon St.
to the Steel City, but Edwards will have this defense very good very soon.
- DT Dorsett Davis, Mississippi St.
a nice fit on pass rushing happy defensive line.
(from Miami) - C LeCharles Bentley, Ohio St.
were more needed he'd probably go quicker.
60) San Francisco
- WR Kahlil Hill, Iowa
a speedster out wide, he can return kicks too.
61) Green Bay
- LB Robert Thomas, UCLA
Harris released, depth at LB becomes a need.
- CB Joseph Jefferson, Western Kentucky
go corner in the first if the right guy is there, but here's guessing he
- LB Raonall Smith, Washington St.
You can never have too many linebackers.
64) St. Louis
- WR Cliff Russell, Utah
in draft is a nice fit for Greatest Show on turf.
65) New England
- DE Dennis Johnson, Kentucky
but Pats still need a better pass rush.
- WR Ron Johnson, Minnesota
is going to need some wide receivers to throw to, right?
- RB DeShaun Foster, UCLA
newly signed Lamar Smith for starting job.
- LB Andra Davis, Florida
Davis bounced back solidly from injury last year.
- S Ramon Walker, Pittsburgh
safety spots are up for grabs in Buffalo.
- WR Tim Carter, Auburn
for Carter (ran a 4.3-40). Minnesota needs a WR to take some attention
away from Moss.
71) San Diego
- TE Terry Jones Jr., Alabama
a great receiver or blocker, but does both very well.
- TE Matt Schoebel, TCU
certainly be counted on to beat out the cast of characters the Cowboys
have on their roster.
- OT Reggie Coleman, Tennessee
developed like expected, but there is still time.
- CB Roosevelt Williams, Tuskegee
makeover for the Colts could have them back in contention in 2002.
City - CB Dante Wesley, Arkansas Pine Bluff
at 6'1" and 210, could even move to safety. Chiefs could use him at either
- OG Qasim Mitchell, N.C. A&T
up 63 sacks last year, which leaves a lot of room for improvement.
77) NY Giants
- OT Chester Pitts, San Diego St.
At 6'4'' and
310 has good, but not great size. Giants could use a bookend.
- OG Fred Weary, Tennessee
Could be filling
some awfully big shoes.
- WR/PR Antoine Randle-El, Indiana
Maybe he shouldn't
go this high, but Dan Reaves likes playmakers.
- FB Najeh Davenport, Miami (FL)
a Cane. Davenport is a versatile weapon out of the backfield.
- CB Kris Richard, USC
a corner and Richard would just fine. Look for the Cards to pick up a RB,
but maybe not early.
82) New Orleans
- CB Kevin Thomas, UNLV
starter had 7 interceptions his senior year.
- WR Kelly Campbell, Georgia Tech
Carr to Campbell?
Maybe, Texans will draft at least two receivers.
84) St. Louis
(from KC/Wash) - CB Sheldon Brown, South Carolina
be groomed as A. Williams eventually replacement.
- RB Jonathon Wells, Ohio St.
Good fit for
west coast offense. Can spell Alexander as backup.
86) Tampa Bay
- DE Will Overstreet, Tennessee
a DE, but it's unlikely they'll sit and wait until now for their first
pick of the draft.
- LB Trev Faulk, LSU
definitely that needs quantity over quality in this draft, I'd look for
them to move down often.
88) NY Jets
- DT Alan Harper, Fresno St.
some help in the interior of their front four, but won't be able to get
it early without reaching.
- WR Nakoa McElrath
give Raiders the homerun hitting ability they don't have.
90) Miami -
DE Kenyon Coleman, UCLA
an end, and Coleman has a very promising upside.
- QB Rohan Davey, LSU
use a backup quarterback…just in case.
92) Green Bay
- QB Kurt Kittner, Illinois
for Kittner, chance to learn from one of the best.
- TE Chris Baker, Michigan St.
Baxter is your starting tight end there is room for improvement.
- LB Dwayne Levels, Oklahoma St.
the next generation of Steeler linebackers.
95) St. Louis
- QB Josh McCown, Sam Houston St.
need much. McCown would be in a great situation.
96) New England
- LB Rocky Calmus, Oklahoma
It just feels
right. Patriots won't have Cox and potentially Phifer back so it's a need
