Post Sporting News Draft Review
Did anybody get theirs yet? I got mine yesterday, and I think they're smokin' crack over there. Some of their projections are ridiculous.

Kyle Orton as the third rated QB prospect and a first rounder

Carnell Williams rated ahead of Ronnie Brown

Mike Williams, Troy Williamson and Mark Clayton all rated ahead of Braylon Edwards

Alex Barron considered a second round prospect

Chris Spencer rated the best overall O-lineman in the draft

David Baas as a third round prospect

Channing Crowder as an outside linebacker

Ernest Shazor and Josh Bullocks fall to the third round

It's even more incredible how they rank second day players overall!

I got it (for free of course :-) )

- Didn't Brown back up Williams, because he couldn't beat him out? Not too ludacris... I would be surprised to see Williams as the #1 RB taken in this draft by Chicago at #4.

- Crowder's speed and athleticism actually makes him a good fit as a OLB in a 4-3. He isn't big enough/has adequate enough run support to take on blocks as a MLB. Not a huge deal.

- Shazor should fall to the 3rd round... at least. His 40 time was horrendous. Like Jamaal Brimmer and Maurice Clarett horrendous. Teams want him to play safety, not LB, and with that speed, he may not have a position.

I could see Spencer in the first. Anyway, with the draft as even as ever, it is no surprise that teams would really shuffle their draftboards and come in at different levels than the media consensus.

Yeah Brown has always been second fiddle to cadillac until... the combine. Brown has that potential to be better, but he still hasn't proven it where it matters most... on the field. So in my book Ronnie Brown has never leap frogged Cadillac at any time... ever.

If you look at Kyle Orton at the beginning of last year he looked a lot like a first rounder and a top QB prospect. Not so much in the 2nd half of the season.

As a matter of fact I personally grade Barron as a 2nd rounder... he certainly would have gone in round 2 or later if he were in last years draft.

I rate Mike Williams top... but Williamson better than Braylon... I don't know about that.

Chris Spencer is a solid Center - but this is a weak oline class afterall. Rate em? Barron, Brown, Barnes. I guess he isn't number 3.

It's hard to get a read on Shazor. I think he can go anywhere between round 1 and round 3... his stock has been very volatile. Bullocks I can see slipping to round 3.

Crowder? I don't know enough to say if he can play outside.
