2008 NFL Draft Live Blog

Dolphins take Jake Long. Shocker!

Everyone knew the Rams would take Dorsey or Long. And it's Chris Long.

Falcons look to be taking Matt Ryan. Sucks for Falcons fans. And they have.

And it's McFadden. Not really a surprise. They needed Dorsey but opt for the freakish talent of Darren.

Kansas City takes Dorsey. Good move. Solid value.

No trades yet. Jets take Gholston. No real surprises. Worst pick so far? Matt Ryan.

New England up. Trade??? Yep a trade. The Saints grab Sedrick Ellis, good move. Hopefully the Saints didn't give their 2009 1st to the Patriots.

Baltimore on the clock. Another trade! Jacksonville moves to 8 and Baltimore drops to 26. Could Baltimore be targeting Chad Henne?

Jacksonville takes Harvey. Cincinnati is on the clock and will most likely take Keith Rivers.

Cincinnati does take Rivers. New England is back on the clock. Another trade? A CB?


We're back. But we missed A LOT of picks. Apologies.

Dallas makes a trade with Seattle to get Mike Jenkins. They had to do this or Houston would take him at 26. Good move by the Cowboys.

Houston up. And a another big stretch. Duane Brown? Wow. He is a solid prospect but not at 26.

San Diego up! And they take Antoine Cason. We are seeing a big run on OTs and CBs. If Miami wants Chilo Rachal they may have to reach for him at 32.

Seattle is up at 28. Round one is almost over...

The Seahawks reach for Lawrence Jackson. A lot of reaching going on in round one. Will it pay off?

San Francisco up with its pick it acquired from Indianapolis during last years draft. Quentin Groves? Kentwan Balmer? Devin Thomas?

The 49ers grab great value with Balmer. He can play DE or NT in the San Francisco 3-4. Great value.

Green Bay is up...

Another trade. I think that is the 10th trade in round one. The Jets are on the clock...

The suspense is killing me!

Dustin Keller, TE, Purdue to the J-E-T-S.

Super Bowl Champion Giants are on the clock...

and take Kenny Phillips.

With the first pick of round two the Dolphins take Phillip Merling, DE, Clemson. Value pick.

The Rams select WR DOnnie Avery, WR, Houston. First WR taken.

Redskins up and can now take Devin Thomas at 34. Great value. And they do. Great job Redskins.

The Chiefs take CB Brandon Flowers from Virginia Tech. Have to replace Ty Law. Nice pick.

Green Bay up with the pick they got from the Jets. They take Jordy Nelson.

Atlanta is up...

and takes Curtis Lofton. Nice pick.

I'm ending the live blog now. Enjoy the rest of the draft!!!
