Sure, the 2007 NFL Draft just ended two days ago and teams haven’t even signed all their undrafted free agents or started training camp. Still, it’s never too early to start thinking about 2008. Especially if your team sucks. This means you, Oakland. And Cleveland.
The folks at FanNation have you covered. They’ve already predicted the order of finish and who each of the 32 teams will draft in the first round, presuming they didn’t trade away their 1st round pick to the Cowboys.
# 1. Raiders: Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas – McFadden ran for 182 yards against LSU, which is basically an NFL team. Character questions, but these are the Raiders.
# 2. Texans: Jake Long, OT, Michigan – After Matt Schaub gets sacked as often as David Carr, Houston realizes it’s still got a problem.
# 3. Vikings: Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville – Strong running game, and no passing game translates to 4-12 for the Vikes in 2007.
# 4. Lions: Calais Campbell, DE, Miami – I was tempted to put the top WR on the board here, but Matt Millen may not be around to run the draft.
# 5. Buccaneers: Sam Baker, LT, USC – Will this be the first pick of the post-Gruden era?
# 6. Dolphins: Chad Henne, QB, Michigan – The â€˜Fins make up for controversial ’07 pick of an Ohio State WR by taking a Michigan QB. You have to love the symmetry.
# 7. Cardinals: Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida – Pass-rushers are always valuable.
# 8. Titans: Kenny Phillips, S, Miami – Phillips gets the edge over Antoine Cason.
# 9. Cowboys (via Browns): Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU – Strong D-lineman for Wade Phillips’ defense.
10. Falcons: Limas Sweed, WR, Texas – Tempted to go QB here, but only if the Falcons are bad enough to get Brohm.
For picks 11-32, click the link. Surely, some of the teams that picked high this year will get better. As a Dallas fan, I’m hoping it’s not Cleveland, though. I’d really like to have the #1 overall pick . . . along with #32.
