5. Cornelius Lewis-Tennessee State


1. Alex Mack-California
2. Eric Wood-Louisville
3. Max Unger-Oregon
4. Antoine Caldwell-Alabama
5. Jonathan Luigs-Arkansas

Sleeper: Edwin Williams-Maryland


1. Pat White (Pat White doesn't have a set position but is talented enough that he will become an offensive weapon in the NFL)


  1. Redskins...please don't take Sanchez!

  2. My thoughts exactly...Unfortunately the Redskins never seem to have the appropriate valuation for their picks so you never know what they will do. I'm hoping cooler heads prevail but I won't hold my breath.
