    Colts | Addai becomes heir apparent to James; Rhodes still the starter
    Sat, 29 Apr 2006 16:39:43 -0700

    Reggie Hayes, of the News-Sentinel, reports Indianapolis Colts RB Joseph Addai became the heir apparent to RB Edgerrin James when the Colts selected him with the No. 30 pick in today's NFL Draft. "He's exactly the same size as Edgerrin (and) has many of the same attributes," Colts president Bill Polian said. "I'm not trying to make him Edgerrin – that's far too heavy a burden for any back to carry. But he's a very good blocker, a very good receiver and a very hard-running, speedy, shifty back." Addai said he doesn't mind the pressure of ultimately replacing Edge. "I just want to come in and compete with the other players and get on the field as soon as quick as I can," Addai said via conference call. "I feel I can catch the ball, run the ball and block when I have to block. I feel I'm an every-down back." Polian likes the fact Addai has low mileage on his legs, and the Colts decided early this morning that he was their targeted first-round pick. Head coach Tony Dungy said returning RB Dominic Rhodes would be the team's starter to open training camp, with Addai as a complementary back.

When it got to that point I was surprised that the Giants took me but I wasn't surprised that I went." He also said he's not sure where he fits in with the Giants, but he's sure he will. He said he did not have surgery in the offseason and that his injured knee, from the 2005 season, is fine.


    Chargers | Smith happy with Cromartie pick
    Sat, 29 Apr 2006 15:39:10 -0700

    San Diego Chargers general manager is very happy with the team's selection of CB Antonio Cromartie in the first round of the NFL Draft. "First pick, very, very pleased. We had a cluster of players. You've heard me say that a lot. We had everything we wanted to pick from. We had linebackers, tackles and a corner we think is special. I know a lot of your questions are why not a tackle. We were looking for corners and tackles so we could've gone either way. This guy we believe is going to be a special player so we're excited. We really think he's got everything you're looking for. The one thing he didn't have which you heard is somewhat of a gamble is not a large body of work and an injury. Again he's a very good player."

    Sat, 29 Apr 2006 14:34:26 -0700

    Detroit Lions team president Matt Millen was happy with the team's first-round draft pick, Florida State LB Ernie Sims. "When we sat and spoke the other day, the one thing we said was that the guy that we were going to get was going to be a guy who was going to exemplify all of the non-talent issues. That's exactly what we picked. This is a guy, who on top of the non-talent stuff, has a lot of talent. Most importantly, he's got great speed; he's a great hitter; great range. He'll come in and he'll be able to add to what we're trying to do. I think the biggest thing here is that it's a piece. We'll put the piece in and he's got to work and make it work, and he will because he's a talented kid and it's important to him. That was important to us." Millen said he is not worried about Sims' history of concussions, calling them a non-issue. Millen says it shows that Sims is a big-hitter.

At the Senior Bowl, he did a great job in one-on-one blitzes and coverage."

    Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban was pleased with the team's selection of WR Derek Hagan (Arizona State) in the third-round of the NFL Draft. "We're obviously very pleased. Receiver was one of the areas that we had targeted in this draft. Derek Hagan was one of our top guys at that position. He's a guy that probably was very highly rated going into this draft. He was at the Senior Bowl. We got to see him. He was kind of a big play guy there and a go to guy. He dropped some balls, made some people question some interest in him. A little inconsistent at the (NFL) Combine but I think when you go back and actually watch the guy play at Arizona State which we spent a significant amount of time doing, he made a tremendous amount of big plays there and was a very consistent catcher and seemed to do a little bit better in the games than he did maybe in the drill work. So he's a fine young man. We're very pleased to have him in the organization. Saban recognized the team needed to add a third wide receiver to the mix.

    Vikings | Team debated moving up for Cutler
    Sat, 29 Apr 2006 19:48:06 -0700

    Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports the Minnesota Vikings debated trading up to acquire Vanderbilt QB Jay Cutler in the first round of the NFL Draft, but the Denver Broncos jumped from the 15th spot to the St. Louis Rams' 11th pick by giving up a high third-round choice. For the Vikings to even have a chance to move up, they would have had to part with at least both of their third round picks, meaning they would have had to give up three of their five first-day picks for one player. In the end, the Vikings felt the price was too steep. "To say that we didn't call wouldn't be fair," Vikings' vice president of player personnel Fran Foley said. "But to say that we had an interest in going way up into the draft to get (Cutler), I don't know that we would say that."
