New, comments

With the 9th pick in The Phinsider Community Mock Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC.

Ellis picked up 80% of the vote, which is the largest total so far. A distant second place was Keith Rivers with 5%.

So here's how the last 5 picks in our draft have gone:

  1. Kansas City Chiefs - Ryan Clady, OT, Boise St. (30%)
  2. New York Jets - Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio St. (56%)
  3. New England Patriots - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tenn St. (32%)
  4. Baltimore Ravens - Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU (41%)
  5. Cincinnati Bengals - Sedrick Ellis, DT, LSU (80%)

Next up, rounding out the top 10, are the New Orleans Saints. Below are the Saints' needs, courtesy of NFL Draft Countdown:

1. Defensive Tackle: Brian Young, Hollis Thomas & Kendrick Clancy are all okay but there is not an impact player among them and it is probably time to bring in a difference maker in the middle of the line.
2. Outside Linebacker: Scott Fujita & Scott Shanle have been okay but neither is so good they can't be upgraded. They are also thin in the depth department so an injury would leave them in a real bind.
3. Center: Jeff Faine was an unherladed performer in the pivot for them but he left for a huge free agent deal with the Bucs. Jonathan Goodwin is just a journeyman and is better suited for a backup role.
