Round 1 (9 overall)Laurence Maroney, RB He'll get the full load of carries in New England now that Corey Dillon's gone.

Round 2 (16)Willis McGahee, RB He'll be revitalized after bolting from Buffalo to Baltimore and Billick.

Round 3 (33)Marc Bulger, QB I had to grab the last elite passer (4,301 yards, 24 TDs in '06) left on the board.

Round 4 (40)Deuce McAllister, RB Few starting running backs who gained 1,000 yards and had 10 TDs fall this far.

Round 5 (57)Calvin Johnson, WR His numbers could be in the range that Randy Moss put up in his rookie season.

Round 6 (64)Vernon Davis, TE A monster of a man who, in the sixth round, might end up being the steal of the draft.

Round 7 (81)Santana Moss, WR Finished strong (three December TDs) after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Round 8 (88)Julius Jones, RB Even splitting time with Marion Barber, he's still worth a reserve spot.

Round 9 (105)Devin Hester, WR I'm betting a ninth-round pick that his switch to offense will be a success.

Round 10 (112)Roscoe Parrish, WR With these receivers, I'm hoping the quick slant comes back into vogue.

Round 11 (129)Robert Meachem, WR Knee injury slowed his start, but he's in a high-octane offense and worth the risk.

Round 12 (136)Randy McMichael, TE Caught 60 balls with five TDs when Linehan was his coach in Miami.

Round 13 (153)Daunte Culpepper, QB He has a chip on his shoulder and should be starting by Bulger's bye week.

Round 14 (160)Dwayne Jarrett, WR On further review, I should have taken a chance here on Priest Holmes.

Round 15 (177)Eagles D There's no way that Philly's unit should have been taken as low as 13th in this draft.

Round 16 (184)Jason Elam, K Stability on offense should lead to more points for the vet, who hit 93.1% of his field goals last year.
