4. Oakland Raiders: The speed of RB Darren McFadden (Arkansas) gets Al Davis to pull the trigger.
5. Kansas City Chiefs: They say current QB Brodie Croyle is their guy, so they pass on QB Matt Ryan and take OT Jake Long (Michigan).
6. New York Jets: They wanted Gholston, but take the best LB as a consolation prize – OLB Keith Rivers (USC).

13. Carolina Panthers: The front office is in the hot seat and use this pick to generate a pass rush with DE Derrick Harvey (Florida).
