* Cleveland filled holes at QB, OT and CB, but paid a dear price in terms of draft picks. Phil Savage has earned the benefit of the doubt. This will be his defining moment in Cleveland.

* Miami really PO'd their fans by reaching for Ted Ginn and John Beck. Tough start for Cam Cameron.

* These guys were great values: Robert Meachem (WR, New Orleans), Greg Olsen (TE, Chicago), Alan Branch (DT, Arizona), Paul Posluszny (OLB, Buffalo -- see, we will give Marv Levy some love when he deserves it!), Zach Miller (TE, Oakland -- and this was on a trade-DOWN! -- wait, we just put over Marv Levy and Al Davis on back-to-back notations here!), Justin Blalock (OT, Atlanta), Chris Houston (CB, Atlanta), Dwayne Jarrett (WR, Carolina), Steve Smith (WR, New York Giants), Tank Tyler (DT, Kansas City), Quinn Pitcock (DT, Indianapolis), Daymeion Hughes (CB, Indianapolis), Ryan Kalil (C, Carolina)

* These guys were big reaches: Ginn, Beck, Justin Harrell (DT, Green Bay), Kevin Klingler, errrrr Kolb (QB, Houston), Drew Stanton (QB, Michigan State)

* These picks will really help their teams even if there were some odd circumstances: Levi Brown (OT, Arizona -- appropriate pick given their needs, but a trade-down was necessary here), Anthony Gonzalez (WR, Indianapolis -- keeps this offense atop the league, but defensive needs could have been filled here), Tony Ugoh (G/T, Indianapolis -- similar to Gonzalez, will be a very good player, but defense could have been addressed), Jarvis Moss (DE, Denver -- great fit for the Broncos with much-needed speed rush help on the D line, but was a trade-up really necessary?), Darrelle Revis (CB, New York Jets -- best cornerback in the draft, but shouldn't Brady Quinn have been the focus given the Jets' issues?), Michael Griffin (S, Tennessee -- fine player, but how do you pass on the explosive Robert Meachem?)

And the "Oh, Crap, We Had No Backup Plan Award for the 2007 First Round" goes to: Green Bay. Thanks for returning, Brett Favre, hope you weren't planning on going to the playoffs in your latest "last year!"
