After the Top 4, that might be the most ridiculous mock I've ever seen.

GBN normally has some crappy mocks.

GBN's fairly crappy.

Draft King:

1. Miami Dolphins - Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
2. St. Louis Rams - Jake Long, OT, Michigan
3. Oakland Raiders - Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas *

McFadden is a rare talent who has incredible potential as a pro. The Raiders ended up with a 1,000 yard runner in Justin Fargas (4.5 yards per carry) in 2007, but the addition of McFadden would be a huge upgrade for the Oakland offense. He could easily be a day one starter; he does all of the little things right, he blocks hard, he doesn't take plays off, and he has an explosiveness that the Raiders haven't seen since Bo Jackson.

4. Atlanta Falcons - Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
5. Kansas City Chiefs - Chris Long, DE, Virginia

Note: the Chiefs will pick at either #4 or #5, Raiders at #3 or #4.

The Chiefs have a major need on the offensive line, but it would surprise me to see them stretch to take an OT in this spot.

Jared Allen is an impending unrestricted free agent. It's likely that the Chiefs will do what they can to keep him, but short of franchising him, it's going to be quite difficult to keep him from seeking top dollar on the open market.

Chris Long is a fascinating DE prospect, a run-stuffer who can also get into the backfield with amazing tenacity. The irony of him playing for the Chiefs (with his Hall of Fame father Howie Long having played for the rival Raiders) would be quite the sub-plot, but ultimately whoever gets Long will have a strong, dependable DE.

These guys have you taking Jake Long:

I'd love Chris Long, even if we re-sign JA(like we should).
