    Knowing Parcells, I'd say they're serious.

    From what I read about Jake, he's a quality guy who can start right away and be a solid OT for years.

    They are negotiating contracts with both Longs, Gholsten and Dorsey, so they haven't decided on anyone yet for that top pick.

    Right.

    It will be very interesting to see how much influence Parcells has. As a coach, he always said if he was expected to cook - he should get to buy the groceries.

    Now that he's a big-wig...I'm interested to see if he lets his head coach do the shopping.

    I really want Jake to fall to the Chiefs at 5.

    That will never happen. Nobody is a bigger fan of Bill Parcels than Bill Parcels. And Wayne Huizenga knows it. That's why he brought Bill on board. Everybody knows he's a great talent scout.

    I think that if the Dolphins take Jake Long, it's going to shake some things up. I think Gholston and Chris Long are both deserving of that number 1 pick, Gholston for his upside, and Long for his safeness. The Rams, I think, would take Jake Long if available, but what if he's not? Excellent tackles like Ryan Clady and Chris Williams will still be on the board later in the round, so a trade is possible.

    I really don't see the Fin's taking Jake Long at #1. The Tuna is probably playing games for contract leverage with picks or trade leverage with other teams. If they do take Jake @ #1 I'd envisin them trading him for a few other picks.
