DE Everette Brown, Carolina (second round; 43rd overall): Some will argue that I'm not taking much of a gamble by having Brown, the first defensive end drafted in the second round, leading off my defense. Based on the fact that Brown was the sixth defensive end drafted from a supposedly weak year for pass rushers, however, the selection is justified. Say what you will about the upside of the pass rushers selected ahead of him -- Brown was the most consistently explosive and fundamentally sound sack artist from the 2008 class. Had he been 2 inches taller, he would have been a top-15 pick. Carolina got a steal in Brown at No. 43, and it won't take the former ACC star long to prove it.
