Who Will Go #1?
Here's what I think will happen.
If the RAMS get the first pick: I see them taking Jake Long. Orlando Pace isn't getting any younger and you might as well develop another tackle with Alex Barron sooner rather than later. They don't need a RB so McFadden wouldn't make sense, but I wouldn't rule out them taking a top QB if the organization decides to move on from Bulger.
If the DOLPHINS get the first pick: I see them taking the top QB available, which I project to be Andre Woodson or Matt Ryan. There is one rule in the NFL Draft: If you don't have a franchise QB, you must take one.
If the FALCONS get the first pick: I see them taking Brian Brohm. I don't have Brohm as my #1 QB, but his ties to Petrino justifies the pick. They and quietly phase out the Harrington era and try their chances with their new franchise QB.
