    Hailredskins.com has a mock draft out:

    Mock NFL Draft

    It has Clayton as pick 28 to philadelphia late in the first round. Five wide receivers go ahead of him. His early entry into the NFL may have cost him $10 million in signing bonuses. As Nick has pointed out, the top 15 first-round picks average $14 million in signing bonuses, while the bottom 15 average $3 million.

    Chad Lavalais is projected as #48 mid-way in the second round to New Orleans. Lavalais also has five DT ahead of him.

    Let's hope they both rate higher in the real NFL draft, especially Lavalais who rates a first-round pick, I think.

    It's too early to say because these guys still have to work out on the Combine and at school. I mean, Lavalais is not going to be close to Tommie Harris. I really hope the Saints pick up Derick Strait cause that would be awesome. Clayton can still improve his draft status through workouts too. Devery will impress at the Senior Bowl.

    sorry,

    I just don't buy it, I don't think some of those wr's from Washington or Oklahoma State are better than Clayton.

    We know what Clayton can do, my question is can these other
    guys block?

    Plus, there are unbelievably amounts of mock drafts out there. I have seen some that have him at 13, others later, but most have him around 19...I think.

    That OSU kid (Woods I think) Is pretty damn good. His big and fast. Sort of that big possesion reciever that can go across the middle... Also you figure Fitzgerald will go ahead of Clayton....

    On the Tommy Harris, Lavalais. I think Lavalais is a better polished player. Harris had a big bag of Nothing in the Big games. When Lavalais was all over the place.

    But I am bias...

    If Clayton does go to the Eagles, based on what I saw Sunday, he immediately becomes their "go to" receiver. He will have a good QB to throw to him, so I think it could be to his benefit in the long run. Provided he is able to stay healthy, 3-4 years down the road he will get his big pay day.

    And only ole miss players deserve to play for the Saints. And Kellen Winslow.

    Apparently Mel Kiper is projecting that the Saints will pick a CB from US(u)C(k) in the first round. Personally I beleive that the Saints should shop Aaron Brooks and Tabucky Jones as a package and get whatever they can.

    Never gonna happen. Aaron and Tesucky are bother here for at least another 3 or 4 years or as long as Haslett is still coach.

    What needs to happen is for ole Tom Benson to retire and let someone who REALLY wants to win a SB take over.
