Rick Gosselin from the Dallas Morning News has earned a reputation for producing one of the most accurate pre-draft mocks every year. His first attempt was published yesterday and he'll make two more projections before April 22nd. Initial thoughts? I think he has Brandon Graham (DE, Michigan) way too high as a top ten pick. I would also be surprised if Seattle spent the #14 on Ryan Mathews (RB, Fresno State). Hard to argue with the rest though and it's worth checking out.
The news also broke yesterday that Pittsburgh have traded Santonio Holmes to the Jets for a 5th round pick. Maybe this won't have any relevance, but it can't help Denver's attempts to earn a first round pick for their own troubled wide out, Brandon Marshall. If the best Pittsburgh could get for Holmes was a 5th rounder, is it safe to presume they'll struggle to get the deal they were hoping for?
