1.8 Tennessee- TE/LT John Solomon: Although an all pro in college at Tight End, the 6'3 Utah machine can also play offensive tackle or Guard if needed. If he stays a TE, defenses will have to watch this key player.
1.9 Baltimore- CB Andre Waldron: In the "Year of the Corners" Baltimore will go with the 204 lb. mammoth of a corner from Southern Cal. and he will for sure be a starter for Baltimore.
1.10 Denver- WR Billy Sapienza: The #1 receiver in the draft drops all the way to Denver to pick up, and the Valdosta State receiver not only ran the fastest 40, but was NCAA Offensive Player of the Year.
1.11 San Francisco- CB Alfonso Orozco: A great addition to a struggling defensive back corps for San Fran will not only improve the defense, but influence the defense to step up as well. The Corner from Iowa will be a difference maker in the 49ers defense.

1.19 Seattle- MLB Don Baldwin: Seattle lost a lot of players to retirements and free agency so they needed to choose wisely with this pick. Baldwin, will be the backbone of Seattle's defense and graduated from Syracuse, he is more than ready for the big leagues.

1.25 Oakland- LT Steve Hopkins: Oakland has been one of the better teams in the AFC West, one of the most toughest divisions in the league. Hopkins, out of Delaware Valley, could see a transition between left and right guard as Oakland continues their trend of great drafts.
1.26 New York- CB Audrey Kennedy: The NFC East will be tougher after New York's 3rd 1st round pick is chosen which could be Kennedy. The Wake Forest CB is a Strong DB with no hesitation to hit any receiver.
