Vikings: Sources say the team would like to select a running back with their selection at No. 7 overall. The back they are targeting is Auburn RB Ronnie Brown because they feel he offers the most versatility of all the backs in the draft. If Brown is gone, they would look at selecting fellow Auburn RB Carnell Williams.
Bears: Sources say the team is expected to select Auburn RB Ronnie Brown over Texas RB Cedric Benson because Brown is the more rounded back.
Browns: The only player that the team has targeted with the third selection overall is Michigan WR Braylon Edwards. Sources say if he's gone before they pick, the team could choose to trade down. It's also possible that the team will look to trade up if the compensation is reasonable in order to secure Edwards.
Chargers: Sources say the team is expected to select Oklahoma WR Mark Clayton over South Carolina WR Troy Williamson if both players are there when they pick at #12 overall. The Chargers like the fact that Clayton can also handle special teams returns which is something they were looking to take care of during the draft or in free agency.
Eagles: Sources say that if the team doesn't trade up from #31 overall, they're likely to select Iowa DE Matt Roth. The team, we're told, would not select Arkansas QB/WR/TE Matt Jones in the first round.
49ers: The team hasn't made very much progress in negotiations with Utah QB Alex Smith but the 49ers is still expected to select him any way unless they get a great offer to trade down to acquire multiple selections.
