1. Oakland - JaMarcus Russell (QB) - The next Daunte Culpepper, he needs some deep threats and a solid line but should make a great passer. There is a chance that he can bring out Mike Williams' talent as well.
2. Detroit - Calvin Johnson (WR) - The next Terrell Owens (minus the attitude), he looks like a sure thing no matter how bad his team is. He should also draw double coverages away from Roy Williams.
3. Cleveland - Joe Thomas (OT) - The next Chris Samuels, he'll be a solid tackle for years to come. The only question is, is a left tackle worth the third pick?
4. Tampa - Gaines Adams (DE) - The next John Abraham, he'll be a disruptive pass rusher. My question is how he will do against the run. He needs a strong DT playing next to him to truly take off.
5. Arizona - Levi Brown (OT) - The next Kareem Mckenzie, he will be a solid starter. However, he does not have the mobility to be an elite left tackle. The Cardinals have reached for linemen before and did it again.
6. Washington - LaRon Landry (S) - The next Brian Dawkins, he will be a star for years to come. His ability will be amplified by sharing the Redskin secondary with Sean Taylor.
7. Minnesota - Adrian Peterson (RB) - The next Larry Johnson, he won't be on an LT level but just below. He'll probably need another back, like Chester Taylor, to take some of his carries.
8. Atlanta - Jamaal Anderson (DE) - The next Shaun Ellis, he should be a versatile, solid defensive end. I don't see him hitting a Peppers or Freeney level though.
9. Miami - Ted Ginn Jr (WR) - The next Dante Stallworth, he will make a returner and deep threat as a 2nd reciever. At this pick, the Dolphins are looking for a Steve Smith, Santana Moss, or Torry Holt - something they're not going to get.
10. Houston - Amobi Okoye (DT) - The next Tommie Harris, he will be a Pro-Bowler in a few years. He is undersized and must be in a 4-3, but should be disruptive.
11. San Francisco - Patrick Willis (LB) - The next Al Wilson, he will be an all-pro before the end of his career. He will be the anchor of the 49ers defense for the at least the next 5 years.
12. Buffalo - Marshawn Lynch (RB) - The next Julius Jones, he will be a starter. However, he does not posess the strength or vision to be an elite back. He may make 1 pro bowl over the course of his career.
13. St Louis - Adam Carriker (DE) - The next Anthony Weaver, he is ideally suited as a DE in a 3-4. He posesses neither the speed to be a pass rusher nor the strength to be a full-time DT.
14. New York - Darrelle Revis (CB) - The next Nick Harper, he will be a long time starter and potential Pro-Bowler. Few 1st round corners end up busting.
15. Pittsburgh - Lawrence Timmons (LB) - The next EJ Henderson, he will be a starter. He will need to add aggressiveness and play-reading ability to become an elite player. Well suited to learn amongst talented Pittsburgh defense.
16. Green Bay - Justin Harrell (DT) - The next Booger McFarland, he will not match the expectations of this draft pick. He may be a starter, but will not be disruptive on his own. It doesn't help that he won't have a lot of support on the Packers' front four.
