Michael Crabtree l Glenn Coffee

Here's a list of Round One Picks in this year’s draft. I was very pleased with San Francisco taking my overall #1 Wide Receiver and Running Back in this year’s College All Stars; Michael Crabtree and Glen Coffee. You already know about Crabtree but Coffee is going to be the next Shaun Alexander and has far more tread on his tires than any of the big three backs taken in the first round. Remember, you heard the Coffee prediction here first.

1. Detroit Lions- Matthew Stafford, Georgia. He’s the guy who finally changes things in the motor city.

2. St Louis- Jason Smith, Baylor. Great pick but this team is still running on empty

3. Kansas City- Tyson Jackson, LSU. Another Tiger in the tank for the second straight year - this young team will really be something in another couple of years.

4. Seattle- Aaron Curry, LB Wake Forest. Another team still not running on all cylinders despite this addition.

5. New York Jets- Mark Sanchez, QB USC. He’ll start and succeed as much as anyone can with the JETS.

6. Cincinnati- Andre Smith, OL Alabama. They had a great draft and he’s their offensive anchor.

7. Oakland- Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR Maryland. Al Davis is showing us all that it’s sad when we get old and crazy.

8. Jacksonville- Eugene Monroe, T Virginia. Best lineman in the draft and just what the Jaguar’s needed after last season’s collapse when their O line fell apart.

9. Green Bay- B.J. Raji, DT Boston College. Who cares - I still hate these guys for screwing over Favre.

10. San Francisco- Michael Crabtree, WR Texas Tech. Mike Singletary will be in the Super Bowl in two more seasons.

11. Buffalo- Aaron Maybin, DE. They need help everywhere.

Former Cardinal Calvin Pace, DE with the New York Jets, joins Coop and Eide on the Jets collapse and why they couldn't win on the West Coast. Plus Football Expert predictions for who will win the Super Bowl. LISTEN
