    Default Kiper now had us taking Albert

    "Two other notable changes from my last mock draft deal with the emergence of Virginia offensive lineman Branden Albert and Boston College QB Matt Ryan.


    Albert was a guard at Virginia, but he did play two games at left tackle. His individual workouts have been phenomenal and Albert has convinced teams he can play left tackle in the NFL. I have him going No. 5 to the Chiefs, and they aren't going to draft him that high to play guard.



    1 Miami Dolphins Jake Long, OT Michigan 2 St. Louis Rams Chris Long, DE Virginia 3 Atlanta Falcons Glenn Dorsey, DT LSU 4 Oakland Raiders *Darren McFadden, RB Arkansas 5 Kansas City Chiefs *Branden Albert, OT/G Virginia 6 New York Jets *Vernon Gholston, DE Ohio St. 7 New England Patriots (from SF) *Aqib Talib, CB Kansas 8 Baltimore Ravens Matt Ryan, QB Boston College 9 Cincinnati Bengals Sedrick Ellis, DT USC 10 New Orleans Saints Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB Tennessee St. 11 Buffalo Bills *Derrick Harvey, DE Florida 12 Denver Broncos Keith Rivers, LB USC 13 Carolina Panthers *Ryan Clady, OT Boise St. 14 Chicago Bears Chris Williams, OT Vanderbilt 15 Detroit Lions *Rashard Mendenhall, RB Illinois 16 Arizona Cardinals Leodis McKelvin, CB Troy 17 Minnesota Vikings *Phillip Merling, DE Clemson 18 Houston Texans *Jonathan Stewart, RB Oregon 19 Philadelphia Eagles Jeff Otah, OT Pittsburgh 20 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Mike Jenkins, CB South Florida 21 Washington Redskins *Devin Thomas, WR Michigan St. 22 Dallas Cowboys (from CLE) *Felix Jones, RB Arkansas 23 Pittsburgh Steelers Kentwan Balmer, DT North Carolina 24 Tennessee Titans *DeSean Jackson, WR California 25 Seattle Seahawks Dustin Keller, TE Purdue 26 Jacksonville Jaguars Lawrence Jackson, DE USC 27 San Diego Chargers Gosder Cherilus, OT Boston College 28 Dallas Cowboys *Justin King, CB Penn St. 29 San Francisco 49ers (from IND) *Jerod Mayo, LB Tennessee 30 Green Bay Packers *Brandon Flowers, CB Virginia Tech 31 New England Patriots Forfeited pick

    this would be a worse mistake than taking Clady. He's projected as a mid first rounder, and he wants us to take him 5? No freakin way.

    Wow.
    That sounds somewhat promising if this is, in fact, the choice we make.

    I don't necessarily disagree with you. I like Albert a lot but it would be a reach based on scout's rankings. Clady would also be a wiser pick if we picked OL there because he played OT his whole college career.

    I would have to say it would be good to have a guy like Albert on the team if he is able to play both OG an OT positions.

    I also disagree that taking Clady would be a mistake. In some scout's opinions, he's closed the gap between him and Long. I wouldn't mind if we took him at # 5.

    I agree. Heck, he might even still be on the board for the Chiefs 2nd pick.

    Kiper has lost his mind. J. Long, while probably the best OT in the draft, is probably the 6th or 7th best athlete in the draft and he has him going #1 to the Dolphins. Then, he's got us taking this guy? I think we take a DT or Gholston before we take Albert.

    I don't think we'll take Gholston unless CP trades JA. I don't think that will happen but I have heard your opinion on that subject.

    I agree we would probably take Dorsey or Ellis over Albert.
