Four Downs: AFC East

We finish our "Best Player Available" analysis and the latest round of Four Downs by taking a look at the new arrivals in the AFC East: Two exiled New Orleans defenders, some talented young defensive backs, a couple rookie Dolphins with family connections to the NFL, one PFP 2006 coverboy, and a new challenger for the title of "Football Outsiders' Favorite Player."

Four Downs: NFC East

The Eagles and Giants subscribe to the Best Player Available philosophy. The Redskins, it seems, do not. And the Cowboys had a third philosophy in 2006, grabbing players with less upside but even less downside. Plus, LaVar Arrington gets Postonized. It's all in the latest edition of Four Downs.

Four Downs: AFC North

Cincinnati may have reached with some late picks, and Baltimore didn't need to give away a sixth-round pick, but otherwise all four AFC North teams score very well according to Sean McCormick's Best Player Available analysis. Plus, Ryan Wilson has the rest of the news from the division, as the Bengals work towards locking up their offensive linemen long-term and the Ravens wait for Steve McNair. And wait, and wait, and ... hey, wait a minute, the wait is over!

Four Downs: NFC South

Good times in the NFC South, as the Falcons get a first-round cornerback in the second round and the Saints get a first-pick player with the second pick. They also may have snagged the best undrafted free agent available. Meanwhile, Carolina makes an unexpected choice at running back, and Tampa Bay makes some unexpected choices on the offensive line. Sean McCormick has Best Player Available analysis and Darrel Michaud has the rest of the news from around the division in the latest edition of Four Downs.

Four Downs: AFC South

Mario, I just met an end named Mario, and suddenly that name will never be the same to me. Sean McCormick attacks the AFC South with Best Player Available analysis -- hint, this guy Reggie Bush was still on the board for Houston -- while Ned Macey brings you the rest of the news including a similarity scores table for Jimmy Smith which was supposed to go in PFP 2006. We spent a lot of time on it so it has to go somewhere.

Four Downs: AFC East

Buffalo throws money at a wide receiver nobody wanted, New England throws money at the best defensive end in football, and Miami throws passes to a wide receiver that may not be as good as people think. Meanwhile, the Jets are just trying to figure out who's going to be throwing, period. Welcome FO intern Bill Barnwell as he takes us around the AFC East in the final pre-draft Four Downs.

Four Downs: NFC West

Arizona's offensive line needs a jump start, the Rams are rebuilding their defense, and the 49ers just hope Alex Smith can turn it around. Meanwhile, the Seahawks and Vikings play a weird game of footsie under the table. Will a poison pill help Seattle recover from surgical removal of its jurevicius maximus? Doug Farrar of SEAHAWKS.NET steps in to give us the latest on the division he knows best.
