Kiper Mock Draft 1/31/06
Following the week of Senior Bowl practices, there have been some changes to my first-round projection for the 2006 NFL draft. There are 14 underclassmen in this week's projected first round, three fewer than last week.

The top six picks remain the same, but the one newcomer to the top 10 is Texas defensive back Michael Huff. Right now I have him projected to land in San Francisco, which has the seventh overall pick. What I like about Huff is his versatility because he can play either cornerback or safety.

This projected pick reminds me of what the 49ers did in 1981 in a similar situation. In the '81 draft, the 49ers had the eighth overall pick and selected another versatile defensive back: USC's Ronnie Lott.

I will submit another first-round projection following the NFL combine, which is Feb. 22-28 in Indianapolis.

Claude wroten or Kyle Williams either DT will do for 3rd pick. Should have picked up Lavalie but nooo we passed on him and he went to the dirty bird falcons.
