    Wed, 26 Apr 2006 14:53:08 -0700

    Tom Pedulla, of USAToday.com, reports USC RB LenDale White (hamstring) is at risk of not being drafted in the first round, a disappointing turn of events for the running back that some had tabbed as second best in the 2006 NFL Draft at his position. However, with durability being a concern with his torn hamstring, along with questions about his dedication raised by weight gain, his stock has dropped among many teams. "I think the best-case scenario is late first round," said Mike Mayock, a draft specialist for the NFL Network. "But I'm not sure that's happening."

    Chargers | Multiple needs heading into draft
    Wed, 26 Apr 2006 13:55:42 -0700

    The Associated Press reports the San Diego Chargers are in need of an offensive lineman, preferably at left tackle, a cornerback to shore up a weak defensive backfield and a wide receiver to eventually replace aging WR Keenan McCardell heading into the 2006 NFL Draft.


    Broncos | Wide receiver a strong possibility in draft
    Wed, 26 Apr 2006 13:50:23 -0700

    The Associated Press reports the Denver Broncos are in the market for a wide receiver to play alongside WR Rod Smith, especially after a failed attempt at landing WR Terrell Owens in free agency. At No. 15 in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft, they may have the option of landing either Florida WR Chad Jackson or Ohio St. WR Santonio Holmes. Another option would be a deal with the Green Bay Packers that would land them disgruntled WR Javon Walker, who has made it clear that he will not play for the Packers in 2006.

    Chiefs | Team praises Wimbley
    Wed, 26 Apr 2006 13:14:07 -0700

    The Associated Press reports the Kansas City Chiefs are interested in Florida St. DE/LB Kamerion Wimbley in the draft, although his stock would have to slip for him to fall to the team at No. 20 in the first round. "When you're evaluating, you go through the breakdown of a player of his ability to get off the ball, use his hands to get off the blocker. Wimbley has a lot of those things," vice president of player personnel Bill Kuharich said. "He's a good prospect."


    Texans | Choice narrowed to Bush or Williams
    Wed, 26 Apr 2006 13:01:29 -0700

    The Associated Press reports Houston Texans general manager Charlie Casserly has announced that the team will select either USC RB Reggie Bush or North Carolina St. DE Mario Williams with the first pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. Casserly also dismissed the option of trading out of the first pick in the draft. "Right now we have nobody interested in that first pick, so we have gone ahead and begun negotiations with two players," Casserly said.


    Eagles | Good depth at defensive end heading into draft
    Wed, 26 Apr 2006 12:45:32 -0700

    Dave Spadaro, of PhiladelphiaEagles.com, reports the Philadelphia Eagles have good depth at defensive end heading into the 2006 NFL Draft. With a rotation of DEs Jevon Kearse, Darren Howard and Trent Cole getting significant time, along with DE Jerome McDougle attempting to prove himself worthy of the first round pick the team used on him in 2003 and young DE Juqua Thomas backing them up. Given such good depth at the position, it is likely the Eagles will look at other positions in the draft.


    Cowboys | Running back not a need heading into draft
    Wed, 26 Apr 2006 12:19:23 -0700

    Nick Eatman, of DallasCowboys.com, reports the Dallas Cowboys have depth and youth at the running back position with RBs Julius Jones, Marion Barber III and Tyson Thompson on the roster. Although they could use a goal-line back, it is unlikely that they will look to fill the need in the 2006 NFL Draft, especially in the earlier rounds. It is more likely that the team will look to fill more important needs rather than stock up at tailback.

    I just skimmed through it, but I love that we're looking at Alston. If Cutler falls to us in round 1, I would be so happy to snag either Thomas Howard, Rocky Mcintosh, or Jon Alston in round 2. If Cutler doesn't last until #17, the pick is probably Sims, and in that case, no Alston.

    Re: NFL Draft info. (26 April 2006) from KFFL

    I'm going to say we go RB with our first pick if one of top 3 QB's doesn't drop. I think the releasing of O. Smith leading up to the draft is a sign. Plus we've been looking at a lot of 2nd round LB's.

    Yeah we gave Chester Taylor 5.6 million dollars in guarenteed money to sit on the bench for another running back that would be silly we have four guys under contract already at the position.
    Minnesota Vikings : Simply the best

    Thing is Childress is only responsible for one of them. No one really knows how much he really likes Fason or Memo but they were already here when he joined the team. Similiar to new college coaches it takes them a few years to mold the team into what they want personel wise.

    Hell even if we draft a rookie RB it doesn't mean Chester won't carry the football a lot this season but you guys are crazy if you think Childress will pass up on a RB that he really likes just because of Chester..

    I definitely would not mind Alston in the second round should we not get our guy in the first or go RB or QB with No. 17 instead.

    Armando Salguero, of the Miami Herald, reports agent Drew Rosenhaus said the Baltimore Ravens are showing a keen interest in his client, Miami WR Sinorice Moss.

"That's the same kind of backlash Santana (WR Santana Moss) faced when he was coming out and teams took David Terrell and Koren Robinson and Rod Gardner ahead of him. "All those guys have since been cut from the teams that took them and Santana just went to the Pro Bowl."

The Jets would then take Cutler with the No. 13 draft choice. However, the deal would be dead if Cutler is not available.

    Re: NFL Draft info. (26 April 2006) from KFFL

    I would really like to see us stay put, and if Cutler falls take him at 17 and then trade our second round pick or something crafty to get donnie edwards! That would be a steal cause the man is gunna come in and be an impact player for atleast 2or3 years. But if cutler is gone we go Sims at 17 and then in the 2nd take a QB and a CB... then in the 3rd you take a TE and an OL ... a lot of talent could still be there at those positions when we get to the 3rd round! The possibilities are endless... I am so darn excited!!!
