Teams maneuvering to take WR Johnson, LB Willis
Posted: Wednesday April 25, 2007 4:42PM; Updated: Wednesday April 25, 2007 7:56PM

Willis is a very popular prospect as the draft looms. Not only do the Lions want a crack at the Ole Miss linebacker who can run like the wind, there are at least three other potential suitors as well. They include Denver, San Francisco and Buffalo.
One rumored scenario making its way around the league this week has the No. 21 Broncos interested in trading up to No. 10 Houston if Willis is still on the board. Denver released middle linebacker Al Wilson recently and have a vacancy there that Willis would fill.
The scenario makes sense for the Texans, who at No. 21 could still pick one of the cornerbacks or receivers who are expected to be available at that slot. The Broncos have an extra third-round pick obtained in the Ashley Lelie deal, and given that Denver coach Mike Shanahan and his Houston counterpart, Gary Kubiak, have such a close relationship, something could be brewing.
The No. 11 49ers are thought to have Willis high on their list, as well as Nebraska defensive end Adam Carriker, and No. 12 Buffalo could use Willis as a replacement for the departed London Fletcher.

So if Atlanta can not get Oakland to deal at #1 and Johnson is still there at 2 they have a good option in Detroit to move up and still get him. Willis goes at 8. wow.
Houston to trade out and get picks back. If Willis is still on the board. Wonder if they want Grant? I already talked about this and then trading back with one of the teams listed and getting a better shoot at the CB stock in round 1 and getting picks so we could draft a couple of DE/DT to replace him.
