TRADE NOTES
Chiefs 2019 Draft History
1 5 5  Glenn Dorsey DT LSU
 Draft Scout Says: The Chiefs had targeted pass rusher Vernon Gholston, but with Dorsey shockingly still on the board, GM Carl Peterson instead addressed the middle of the line. Considering the running games throughout the AFC West, the Chiefs made the correct choice in taking this run-stuffing presence. With 12 other picks spread throughout the draft, expect a focus next on the offensive line.
Saints 2019 Draft History
1 7 7  Sedrick Ellis DT Southern Cal (From Patriots who acquired pick and 4th-round pick in 2007 draft from 49ers for 1st-round pick in 2007 draft, April 28, 2007.)
 Draft Scout Says: In trading up for Sedrick Ellis, the Saints filled not only their biggest need, but did so at a position of value considering that Ellis, if a few inches taller, would have been in contention for the top pick of the draft. Blessed with a rare combination of quickness, strength, and intensity Ellis may lack Glenn Dorsey's high profile, but he is actually a safer pick.
49ers 2019 Draft History
1 29 29  Kentwan Balmer DT North Carolina (49ers acquired pick and 4th-round pick in 2007 draft from Colts for 2nd-round pick in 2007 draft, April 28, 2007.)
 Draft Scout Says: The 49ers clearly need help at wide receiver and had to strongly consider the position, but with ascending defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer still on the board, he was simply too much value to pass up at this point in the draft. Balmer, a collegiate defensive tackle, will slide outside to play end for San Francisco.
Eagles 2019 Draft History
2 16 47  Trevor Laws DT Notre Dame (From Vikings)
 Draft Scout Says: There isn't a team in the league that rebuilds along the lines like Philadelphia. Like every team in the league, the Eagles are always looking to add talented defensive tackles and Laws is certainly among 2008's best. What Laws lacks in size, he makes up for in strength, quickness, and tenacity.
Dolphins 2019 Draft History
3 3 66  Kendall Langford DT Hampton (From Lions through Chiefs)
 Draft Scout Says: The transition of this team from a 4-3 unit to Bill Parcells' preferred 3-4 alignment continued with the addition of Langford. Langford has the size to play end in this scheme and proved his ability to step up in competition with a solid week of practice at the Senior Bowl.
Bengals 2019 Draft History
3 14 77  *Pat Sims DT Auburn
 Draft Scout Says: Needing size and playmaking ability inside the Bengals took a chance on greatness with Sims in the third round. Sims has struggled, at times, with putting a consistent effort on the field, but when motivated, he is among the top DTs in this draft, and certainly a value, at this point. Over the final few games of the 2007 season, Sims was the SEC's top DT -- not Glenn Dorsey.
Lions 2019 Draft History
3 24 87  Andre Fluellen DT Florida State (Lions acquired pick and CB Leigh Bodden from Browns for DT Shaun Rogers, March 1, 2008.)
 Draft Scout Says: Possessing a quick first step inside, Andre Fluellen has the burst for the three-technique defensive tackle position the Lions were looking to add with the trade of Shaun Rogers. Fluellen, a much ballyhooed prep prospect, struggled to live up to his potential and the expectations while with the Seminoles, but he has the tools to surprise.
Bears 2019 Draft History
3 27 90  Marcus Harrison DT Arkansas (Bears acquired pick and 2nd, 3rd and 5th-round picks in 2007 draft from Chargers for 2nd-round pick in 2007 draft, April 28, 2007.)
 Draft Scout Says: Needing depth at defensive tackle, the Bears added former Arkansas standout Marcus Harrison in the third round. Compared by some to former Chicago standout, Tank Johnson, Harrison has to play with more consistency and prove that his character concerns are history.
Bucs 2019 Draft History
4 16 115  Dre Moore DT Maryland (From Eagles through Dolphins and Bears)
 Draft Scout Says: Few picks fit their new defensive scheme better than defensive tackle Dre Moore, a one-gap penetrator who is explosive off the snap. At 6'4", he's a bit taller than other Buc interior linemen...but his 4.84 40 time raised eyebrows.
Seahawks 2019 Draft History
4 22 121  Red Bryant DT Texas A&M
 Draft Scout Says: The Seahawks have been looking for a big run-stuffing defensive tackle since drafting Marcus Tubbs in the first round of the 2004 draft. Bryant, while not as athletic as Tubbs, has the big body and strength at the point of attack to close down running lanes and free Lofa Tatupu to make plays.
Saints 2019 Draft History
5 11 144  DeMario Pressley DT North Carolina State (From Lions)
Bengals 2019 Draft History
5 12 145  Jason Shirley DT Fresno State
 Draft Scout Says: If any team would seemingly want to stay away from players with character concerns, one would think it would be the Bengals. However, in selecting Shirley in the fifth round the Bengals are again taking a chance on a talented athlete with a lengthy rap-sheet.
Broncos 2019 Draft History
5 15 148  Carlton Powell DT Virginia Tech
Texans 2019 Draft History
5 18 151  Frank Okam DT Texas
Vikings 2019 Draft History
5 19 152  *Letroy Guion DT Florida State (From Eagles)
Panthers 2019 Draft History
6 15 181  Nick Hayden DT Wisconsin
Browns 2019 Draft History
6 24 190  Ahtyba Rubin DT Iowa State (Browns acquired pick from Seahawks for QB Charlie Frye, September 11, 2007.)
Lions 2019 Draft History
7 9 216  Landon Cohen DT Ohio
Dolphins 2019 Draft History
7 38 245  Lionel Dotson DT Arizona (Compensatory)
