1. Oakland: WR Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech - Simply put, he's the best player in the draft, so the Raiders will take him, then find a quarterback later.
5. Arizona: OT Joe Thomas, Wisconsin - An anchor for the offensive line is what the Cardinals have to find.
6. Washington: LB Patrick Willis, Mississippi - They flirted with
7. Minnesota: QB JaMarcus Russell, Louisiana State - The Vikings simply won't be able to pass on a legitimate quarterback of the future.
9. Miami: QB Brady Quinn, Notre Dame - New coach Cam Cameron will love placing Quinn in his offense.

20. N.Y. Giants: DE Jamaal
24. New England: LB Paul Posluszny,
25. N.Y. Jets: CB Chris Houston, Arkansas - Jets need to improve the secondary, and
28. New England: OT Joe Staley,
