KENECHI UDEZE, DE, USC
Though their interior line is set, they need an outside rush. Udeze, relentless pursuer, is thought to be the best wing man in the draft.
TOMMIE HARRIS, DT, Oklahoma
Gary Walker and Seth Payne were hurt last season, and Houston's defense struggled. Harris will have an instant impact.
PHILIP RIVERS, QB, North Carolina State
They were ready to trade up for tins deadly accurate passer (72% as a senior), but gambled that he would still be available here.
DUNTA ROBINSON, CB, South Carolina
Miami LBs Jonathan Vilma and D.J. Williams are possibilities, but Robinson, a hard-to-find shutdown corner, tops the team's wish list.
VINCE WILFORK, DT, Miami
This quick 344-pounder wins at the wire over WR Michael Clayton on the theory that it's easier to find wideouts later in the draft.
WILL SMITH, DE, Ohio State
You don't often get the second-best outside rusher this deep in the draft. Some think the 6'3" 267-pounder is even faster than Udeze.
LEE EVANS, WR, Wisconsin
The one element missing from coach Jon Gruden's offense is a swift receiver. How does a game-breaker with 4.40 speed sound?
REGGIE WILLIAMS, WR, Washington
Coach Dennis Erickson is pushing for RB Steven Jackson, but the front office wants help for a receiving corps that lost both starters.
KEVIN JONES, RB, Virginia Tech
Mike Shanahan traded up hoping this quick 221-pounder would be there. Jones will remove some of the sting from the Clinton Portis deal.
D.J. WILLIAMS, LB, Miami
A 250-pounder with 4.55 speed, Williams flies to the ball. That's the kind of speed that Jim Haslett wants to inject info his defense.
