10 CARDINALS Jay
Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt This will be the first of the we never thought he'd
still be there picks. Coach Denny Green counts his blessings after getting the
QB some feel might be the best on the board.
11 RAMS Antonio
Cromartie, CB, Florida State A gamble to be sure. He missed 2005 with a torn
ACL and had only one college start, but in his workouts "he looked like he
was from another planet," says Giants G.M. Ernie Accorsi.
Kamerion Wimbley, DE, Florida State Do they pick a big guy to help a defense
that finished 30th against the run or a pass rusher to fortify a unit that had
the fewest sacks in the league? Sacks win. This slender 249-pounder explodes
off the edge.
13 RAVENS Haloti
Ngata, DT, Oregon They lost 340-pound run stuffer Maake Kemoeatu, so along
comes the 338-pound Ngata, making them leaner and meaner across the D-line.
14 EAGLES Bobby
Carpenter, LB, Ohio State They want a strongside linebacker. They want some

Jackson, WR, Florida When your top offensive threat ( Rod Smith) is 35, it's

16 DOLPHINS Jason

fortify another area of concern with the best free safety in the draft?
17 VIKINGS Jimmy
Williams, CB, Virginia Tech A boom-or-bust guy with size (6'21/2", 213) and
talent; he can be a complainer at times. The Vikings think coordinator Mike
Tomlin, who knew Williams in college, can get the most out of him.
Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio State There are cornerbacks galore, just waiting to
be picked, but a 4.40 flier with good hands is too enticing to pass up.
Winston Justice, T, USC Yes, they'll give the cornerbacks a long look, but
they'll settle on Justice, whose workouts have been terrific. It might take him
a while to become a force. He's the second best offensive lineman on the
