29. Chicago- Alex Brown, DE Florida

31. St. Louis- Bryan Thomas, DE UAB
32. Washington- Antonio Bryant, WR Pittsburgh

For the record, I think this draft should have been cancalled, but it is rescued by four potential hall of fame players. Freeney, Reed, and Westbrook. If Haynsworth plays at the level he's playing right now from the beginning he's still a no-brainer number one pick and well on his way to Canton. As for the Skins pick, Bryant was really the best player left on the board and since we've missed on so many wide receivers it's easy to look back and pick the ones who ended up actually having talent.

1. Cincinnati- Carson Palmer, QB USC
2. Detroit- Andre Johnson, WR Miami Fl
3. Houston- Kevin Williams, DT Oklahoma State
4. N.Y Jets= Nmadi Asomugha, CB Cal
5. Dallas- Troy Polamalu, S USC
6. New Orleans- Osi Umenyoria, DE Troy
7. Jacksonville- Terence Newman, CB Kansas State
8. Carolina- Larry Johnson, RB Penn State
9. Minnesota- Anquan Boldin, WR Florida State
10. Baltimore- Terrell Suggs, DE Arizona State
11. Seattle- Marcus Trufant, CB Washington State
12. St. Louis- Nick Barnett, LB Oregon State
13. New England- Jason Witten, TE Tennessee
14. Chicago- Lance Briggs, LB Arizona
15. Philadelphia- Asante Samuel, CB Central Florida
16. Pittsburgh- Rashean Mathis, CB Bethune-Cookman
17. Arizona- Jordan Gross, OT Utah
18. Arizona- Eric Steinbach, OG Iowa
19. Baltimore- Ty Warren, DL Texas A&M
20. Denver- Dallas Clark, TE Iowa
21. Cleveland- Willis McGahee, RB Miami Fl
22. Chicago- Bradie James, LB LSU
23. Buffalo- Jeff Faine, C Notre Dame
24. Indianapolis- Charles Tillman CB Louisiana-Lafeyette
25. N.Y Giants- Corey Redding, DL Texas
26. San Francisco- David Diehl, OT Illinois
27. Kansas City- E.J Henderson, LB Maryland
28. Tennessee- Ken Hamlin, S Arkansas
29. Green Bay- Kawika Mitchell, LB South Florida
30. San Diego- Robert Mathis, DE Alabama A&M
31. Oakland- Gerald Hayes, LB Pittsburgh
32. Oakland- L.J Smith, TE Rutgers

What stood out to me the most Detroit's decision to take Rogers over Johnson and the pro bowlers that weren't drafted in the first round like Witten, Briggs, Samuel, Umenyoria and Rasheen Mathis. Palmer is still the clear cut number 1 IMO.

Better then Graham AND Watson. Before they traded for Moss their offense was built around the tight end so yeah, to me it made perfect sense.
