    From Insider....

    Young headed to Tennessee
    By Todd McShay

    The end of the NFL season means the selection order for the first round is finally set, save for the Raiders and 49ers, who will execute a coin flip to break a tie for picks Nos. 6 and 7.

    Much will change in the next couple of months, as players take part in the scouting combine and individual workouts. But with underclassmen officially declared as of Jan. 15, and with all the postseason all-star games wrapped up, now is an appropriate time to update the first-round mock for the 2006 NFL draft.

    Wow. Despite all the recent hype and the combine performances, they still have Cutler going at 10 to the Cardinals. I doubt he lasts that long.

    OK Texans trade their #1 to New York for their #4 and their second round choice. Texans get D'Brickashaw Ferguson and in the second round, pick #1 and #4.

    Yeah but this draft has no trades. You gotta figure that Houston or Tennessee will trade down.

    This guy hasn't done his research at all.

    For example, Greenway is likely to go late 1st round (if 1st at all) after having very poor strength showing and poor 40s in the 4.7s.
