All across the country this month NFL prospects are participating in pro days with the hopes of catching the eye of an observing NFL scout. Everyone who participates has a dream of being drafted to go pro, but unfortunately not all of them will. However, for Boston College quarterback, Matt Ryan, the question is not if he will get drafted, but while he go first in the draft and where will he end up?
What do you think about NFL Draft 2008? Will Matt Ryan go first? Where will he go? If not, who will? How about other top prospects? Darren McFadden? Chris Long? Jake Long? Glenn Dorsey?
Two days, seven rounds and 252 picks are in the books for the 2008 NFL draft
We won't know until 2009 on how well NFL teams did in this years draft but here is a forecast of some the teams that did the best "PICKING"...
Kansas City Chiefs Although the Chiefs definitely improved their defence with the signing of giant Glenn Dorsey, the signing of Brandon Flowers (2nd round) and explosive running back Jamaal Charles (3rd) may have been the best.
Washington Redskins Fred Davis was a superb tight end at USC, and probably will be in the NFL. Malcolm Kelly was one of college football's best wide receivers at Oklahoma, and Devin Thomas is highly-rated by almost every expert. Now if they could only work out how to keep a lead...
Baltimore Ravens There seems to nowhere that Baltimore didn't upgrade. Joe Flacco's got the arm to be a fantastic NFL quarterback, and Ray Rice and Allen Patrick were both stars in college. Safety Tom Zbikowski was one bright spot on Notre Dame's truly awful 2008 and Justin Harper's got great jumping abilities. This team will be very, very good this year.
Atlanta Falcons Picking Matt Ryan as the top pick was a great decision by the Atlanta Falcons. He's ready to start the first game of the year. And for $72m he should play offense and defense. Sam Baker (2nd round) is a superb offensive tackle and Harry Douglas (3rd) is a decent wide receiver.
Dallas Cowboys The Cowboys really added depth at running back with the drafting of Felix Jones and Tashard Choice. While Choice may have had his best game at the start of the 2007 college football season, Jones is a bona fide star. What would anyone expect from Jerry Jones, a University of Arkansas alum?
Miami Dolphins Am I the only one who's not sure about Jake Long? Sure, he's a great offensive tackle, but will he hold up in the NFL? One thing's for sure though: the Dolphins decision to pick Jake Long's teammate at Michigan Chad Henne is a pretty good one. Henne looks one of the most NFL-ready quarterbacks in the draft. Don't be surprised to see him start in September.
