(#1) Raiders = Jamarcus Russell
(#2) Lions = Calvin Johnson
(#3) Browns = Brady Quinn
(#4) Buccaneers = Gaines Adams
(#5) Cardinals = Joe Thomas

Zero.  Trades.

The only pick I really disagree with is the first one.  I think Oakland is crazy for passing on CJ.  The overall effect is minimal though because CJ is the only real bait out there for teams to trade up.  If Oakland wises up and takes Johnson #1, I think Russell goes #2 to the Lions.  I sincerely doubt that happens though.

And yes, I'm well aware of the Lions taking another R1 WR (4 out of last 5 years).  Doesn't matter.  They take the BPA at 1.2 and that's CJ.  All of those teams out there (Atlanta and most notably, Tampa) talking about moving up simply won't do it because it'll be too expensive.

Detroit could take CJ, and they should, and then take a QB in the second like Beck. Would be an extremely smart move. One, that Millen really needs to make.

I think the Raiders take the more cost effective choice between Russell, Quinn, or Johnson.  IMO.  which may turn out to be Quinn.

Forgot where I heard/read it, but Davis does not like Quinn.  IIRC, he loves Russell.  Kiffin loves CJ.

Unless Davis stops stealing our oxygen in the next 24 hours, I'm wagering that his decision will win out.
