Round 1 (8 overall)Marshawn Lynch, RB Bills coordinator Steve Fairchild, a Mike Martz guy, sees Marshall Faulk in Lynch.

Round 2 (17)Adrian Peterson, RB As you can see, I'm not afraid of drafting rookie running backs.

Round 3 (32)Jon Kitna, QB This is what I project for him in 2007: 4,467 yards, 25 touchdowns -- and 18 picks.

Round 4 (41)Lee Evans, WR Someday he'll have a 95-catch season with his good pal, quarterback J.P. Losman.

Round 5 (56)Tatum Bell, RB I'll be surprised if he doesn't gain 1,400 yards and score eight TDs in Detroit.

Round 6 (65)Jason Witten, TE The best thing that ever happened to him: Jason Garrett's becoming a coach.

Round 7 (80)Deion Branch, WR Seattle got fleeced in the trade, but I still think he'll catch 65 balls this year.

SI Recommends

Round 8 (89)Jerricho Cotchery, WR He became Chad Pennington's target of choice as 2006 wore on.

Round 9 (104)Jaguars D The best defense no one pays attention to. Ever hear of Bobby McCray?

Round 10 (113)Nate Kaeding, K The Chargers will be a top-three scoring team, and he'll succeed on 80% of his FG tries.

Round 11 (128)Chad Pennington, QB Healthy, he'll throw for 3,000 and be a nice backup if Kitna blows up.

Round 12 (137)Anthony Gonzalez, WR Peyton's slot receiver always, always sees four or five chances a game.

Round 13 (152)DeDe Dorsey, RB The Colts' Joseph Addai insurance. And the team really likes him.

Round 14 (161)D.J. Hackett, WR Late in 2006, Hasselbeck looked to him more than any other Seattle wideout.

Round 15 (176)Sammy Morris, RB See DeDe Dorsey two rounds ago. Insert "Pats' Laurence Maroney insurance."

Round 16 (185)Ted Ginn Jr., WR Poor man's Devin Hester, but with better receiving skills. Could score 10 TDs.
