Anchorage has now completed our draft.

1-10 - Traded last year to obtain DE Charles Johnson. We're so thin at DE that we're happy with this trade.

2- 34 DT Kawann Short. We needed help in the back seven, but Vince Wilfork needed help in the middle with the departure of Shaun Cody. Short will compete with CJ Mosley and Josh Chapman for the second DT spot and will certainly be in the rotation.

3-58 FS T. J. McDonald. We were sweating it out to get this guy since we needed a FS upgrade badly. He'll move ahead of incumbent Matt Giordano and likely be a Day One starter.

4-82 WR Quinton Patton. When Peyton Manning is your QB, does it really matter who your receivers are? Our corps is deep, but not overly strong with Kendall Wright, Donnie Avery, Andre Roberts, Devin Hester, and Jacoby Ford. We hope that Patton will get into the mix.

5- 106 HB Zac Stacy. An injury to Lesean McCoy killed us last year. He'll return, and Stacy will compete with Bryce Brown, Jason Snelling, and Isaac Redman for backup carries.

5- 108 CB B. W. Webb. Another area where we're deep but not dominating. Alfonzo Dennard has one spot locked down, and Pacman Jones and Mike Jenkins are competing for the other spot. Webb will likely be a dime back if he can beat out A.J. Jefferson and Richard Crawford. This pick was acquired in the Charles Johnson trade.

6-130 ILB A. J. Klein. Anchorage has no inside linebackers on the roster right now, since Bruce Carter is now an OLB. Klein could get pushed into the lineup as a rookie if we don't move Carter back inside.

7-154 ILB Vince Williams. See above. Williams has every opportunity to start as a 7th-round rookie.

Overall, we look to have one certain new starter, and several guys who will get significant playing time if they don't eventually win a starting spot. We concentrated on defense more, because as long as Peyton Manning and Lesean McCoy are healthy we're confident in our offense.

We also made a draft-day trade that will bring in DE Brian Robison and WR Kevin Walter. Walter may return from injury later in the season to bolster the passing game, and Robison will likely move immediately into a starting DE spot.
