TEAM PLAYER POS COLLEGE LONGLEY'S COMMENTS

1. Detroit Matthew Stafford QB Georgia Pressure is on for young Bulldog, but Lions won't rush him.

2. St. Louis Jason Smith OT Baylor Rams hope he's the second coming of Orlando Pace.

3. Kansas City Tyson Jackson DE LSU Jackson rocketed up the charts with the speed he tracks QBs.

4. Seattle Aaron Curry OLB Wake Forest High for a linebacker, but Seattle needs game-changer on defence.

5. N.Y. Jets Mark Sanchez QB USC The Jets wanted this pro-style QB real bad and paid to get him.

6. Cincinnati Andre Smith OT Alabama Carson Palmer is feeling healthier already with this big bodyguard.

7. Oakland Darrius Heyward-Bey WR Maryland Puzzler. Raiders could have traded down five spots and still got him.

8. Jacksonville Eugene Monroe OT Virginia Run-blocking skills make him a fit for Jaguars' plodding attack.

9. Green Bay B.J. Raji DT Boston Coll. Up-front support for Pack's strong LBs, Raji is a force in the middle.

10. San Francisco Michael Crabtree WR Texas Tech Slipped later than most projected. Jerry Rice he is not.

11. Buffalo Aaron Maybin DE Penn St. The big-time rusher badly needed by the sad-sack Bills defence.

12. Denver Knowshon Moreno RB Georgia Needed more help on defence, but he is a versatile offensive threat.
