Teams maneuvering to take WR Johnson, LB Willis

• No. 6 Washington is another top 10 team that's willing to move down, and the best thing the Redskins have going for them is that Peterson might still be available when their turn comes. The Bills at No. 12 are one potential trade partner for Washington. Buffalo needs Peterson as a replacement for starter Willis McGahee, who it traded to Buffalo.
The Bills have an extra third-round pick obtained in the McGahee deal, and an extra seventh-round selection that they picked up from Philadelphia in the Kelly Holcomb deal.
If the Falcons, however, don't end up making a deal with Detroit at No. 2 for the right to take Johnson, they too could be tempted to move up to No. 6 to take Peterson. The thinking in Atlanta is that Warrick Dunn would probably be a Falcon just one more season, and then Bobby Petrino's backfield could feature Peterson, with Jerious Norwood used in a Reggie Bush-type role -- either split out or lined up in the slot at times. Atlanta's wish list reads Johnson, Peterson, LSU safety LaRon Landry, Penn State offensive tackle Levi Brown and Arkansas defensive end Jamaal Anderson, in that order.
No. 7 Minnesota and No. 10 Houston are two other potential trading partners for the Redskins if they control Peterson's fate, but sources I talked to said the Vikings may not be convinced that Peterson is a good fit for their West Coast offense from a mental aptitude standpoint and won't move up the board in order to take the OU star.

I think they under estimate the Landry factor. If all else fails I think he is higher on the wish than Peterson. Who in my opion is only rated this high due to a week RB class. I can see Atlanta dealing with Washington, if all else fails to move ahead of Minnesota to get Landry. Maybe I am under estimating Peterson value. As I see it Landry could end up in Washington.
Now houston trading up and taking Peterson would be the icing on the cake. The cake being "Mario 06". Think they learned there lesson about RB with Davis and his time on the IR.
LOL probably not.

Now Buffalo needing a RB I can see a trade partner for us at 27. Why Brian Leonard! Here in Boston it seems the Patroit really like him. He would be a great fit. Then again they like Joe Staley and David Harris also. One thing you learn here is the Patroits will draft who they want when they want them. They have a ranking system no one has figured out. The media now accepts it as a fact of life and trusts they will make the right pick. Sounds like last years draft for us.
So if Buffallo wants Leonard they may have to move into the first to get him. Here we sit one pick before them. Then again we may loose out on Harris.

God I love the daft.
