The broken leg of a teammate helped propel Nate Burleson into a solid NFL prospect, and his…
Day One Winners...and losers
Detroit - The Lions got value and need throughout. Charles Rogers adds speed and an immediate scoring threat on offense while Boss Bailey is a replacement for the departed Chris Claiborne. Late second round choice Corey Redding adds another talented body to the defensive front.
Baltimore - You can look at this a number of ways but we feel they may have gotten the bargain of the draft with Terrell Suggs at pick ten and basically used next year's first round choice to get their quarterback of the future 12 months early...and only gave up a second rounder.
Cincinnati - Palmer is not a sure thing and may not even be the best player in the draft but considering the way Mike Brown does business, having their first selection signed a week before the draft rather than a week after the season starts is a step in the right direction. Add in Eric Steinbach and and the potential of Kelley Washington and the Bengal offense looks set.
Jacksonville - They choose their quarterback of the future and a player many anointed as the first pick of the draft last September...all at selection number 8! Second round pick Rashean Mathis offers the defense a terrific pass covering centerfield or possible cornerback while Vince Manuawai was excellent value in round three.
Tennessee - Andre Woolfolk was good value in round one and was Chris Brown in the third frame. Tyrone Calico is a solid developmental prospect.
Minnesota - Kevin Williams and EJ Henderson are terrific additions for the defense while Nate Burleson is a reliable pair of hands to take the pressure off of Randy Moss.
Philadelphia - In the end they traded Al Harris for Jerome McDougle...not a bad deal. Add is Picking up the player they coveted in LJ Smith during the second round and a reliable pair of hands from Billy McMullen and all in all it was a productive day for the Eagles.
Cleveland - Much to early for Faine especially when several top tackles were available to them and Cris Crocker was on nobody's draft board.
Kansas City - Like the player, don't like the combination of Johnson and KC....newsflash; Vermeil was ready to pull the trigger on Johnson in the 16th slot. Kawicka Mitchell was also selected a bit early.
San Diego - The Chargers needed both offensive and defensive linemen as well as receivers yet take three defensive backs, two of which were very questionable. Offensive tackle Courtney Van Buren was selected three rounds to early.
Oakland - Nnamdi Asomugha is a nice player but not first round material.
