I\'m thinking that Oakland could make a trade to get up to number one or two to get Cedrick Benson. After all, Norv Turner is the coach and he loves to install a power running game. Last year they were the worst rushing offense in the league.

I am not gonna sya Ben is the best yet, considering Eli was 3 points and a decen defense from leading the terrible Giants in a victory against the dominating Steelers. Ben was pretty much put into the best situation a rookie has probably ever seen as an NFL QB. HE barely had to throw 20 passes a game. It is too early to call him the best of that class even though he had the best season.

I apologize if I misunderstood this, but the statement \"predicting berger would be the best from this class\" leads me to believe you think it is a done deal. You are right it is just a prediction, I guess I was just trying to get a basis on what you were drawing it on. No worries.

Yeah, you\'re a freakin genius. You and about half of the ESPN staff and about 100 websites \"predicted\" that whole scenario. Now, you and about every person who talks about the draft says that Ronnie Brown will end up being the best suited back for the NFL.

If Porter does leave the Raiders it could have an impact on the team\'s 2005 draft beyond the fact that he is Oakland\'s only proven receiver. The Raiders, who have 7th pick overall at this year\'s draft, have been widely expected to take a RB like Carnell Williams or Ronnie Brown, both of Auburn, with that #1 pick, however, if Porter leaves, the Raiders may use his \'cap slot\' to pursue New York Jets UFA RB LaMont Jordan. Obviously if he Raiders can sign Jordan, they\'d be then free to use the 7th pick on a WR like Mike Williams of Southern Cal, or possibly a defensive lineman like Dan Cody of Oklahoma, Erasmus James of Wisconsin or Marcus Spears of LSU.

well turbo this is my basis for statement... the fact that ronnie brown doesn\'t have the wear nor the tear that c. williams nor c. benson have is a major reason i say that.... brown is probably the fastest of the three and the biggest to boot...

cadillac and brown split time pretty evenly as far as wear. i\'d take cadillac in a race too.

good article on texans draft outlook-
First and foremost, the Texans must find a way to protect their quarterback and get to the opponent\'s quarterback. They didn\'t do either well last season...
