new SI mock

Just 17 days out from the 2008 NFL draft, we hold these "truths" to be self-evident:

• The No. 1-sitting Dolphins positively aren't taking a quarterback in that slot, but that doesn't mean that their QB of the future won't come with Miami's first-overall pick in round two (Chad Henne?).

• As much as Falcons owner Arthur Blank might want to sell the fresh hope that quarterback Matt Ryan would represent to his team's fans, he's going to let new Atlanta general manager Thomas Dimitroff build a foundation the way he has been taught -- up front. That spells a lineman for the Falcons, probably LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey.

• Ryan is going to wind up playing for either ex-Jets coach Herman Edwards in No. 5 Kansas City, or for current Jets coach Eric Mangini in No. 6 New York. Either way, linemen should occupy at least the draft's top four slots, with Ryan and Arkansas running back Darren McFadden being the first skill players taken at No. 5 and No. 6.

• As the picking nears, players climbing up our draft board include USC linebacker Keith Rivers, Boise State offensive tackle Ryan Clady, Michigan State receiver Devin Thomas and Virginia guard Branden Albert. We've got all of them going in our top 12.

Mock NFL Draft No. 5
Pick Team Pos. Player College Class Ht. Wt.
1 DE Chris Long Virginia Sr. 6-3 266
We're not moving off of Howie's boy going first overall, but here's a very possible scenario for the Dolphins: Football czar Bill Parcells has four players he's considering at No. 1 -- Chris Long, Jake Long, Vernon Gholston and Glenn Dorsey -- and whichever one of them seems willing to negotiate the fairest deal prior to draft day winds up getting the nod. That said, the safest pick for Miami, the one Parcells trusts in the most, is Chris Long. He may not have the upside potential of Gholston or Dorsey, but he has the track record, he has the bloodlines, and he has the stamp of approval from Virginia head coach Al Groh, a longtime Parcells ally.

Re: new SI mock

If we pass on the best RB in the draft for a CB that won't get on the field this year, I'll shoot myself.

Re: new SI mock

I would not be suprised at all if that is exactly would the draft plays out barring a trade. I'd rather have one of the top two CB's then the top two RB's in this draft because we need way more help a CB then we do at RB. The only way RB in the 1st is a possibility is if we let Duece go.

Re: new SI mock

DRC would be awesone, the only Rb I would take is if D McFadd falls to 10!
