Vote: Who got the best pick?

Jake Long is headed to South Beach.
Before the 2008 NFL draft even started, the Miami Dolphins surprised many by signing OT Jake Long to a five-year contract worth $57.75 million and $30 million guaranteed. Before the trade-happy first round came to a close, six more offensive tackles would be selected and not a single wide receiver. Perhaps NFL teams have learned a lesson about rookie receivers?

Teams maneuvered their way up and down the draft board for the best possible pick and some paid dearly to make the climb. The Jaguars gave up four picks to the Ravens to move into the No. 8 spot so they could select DE Derrick Harvey. Meanwhile, the Chiefs traded away three picks in order to grab OG Branden Albert at the No. 15 pick.

Did the Jags give up too much to get Harvey? Who was the biggest reach and best steal of the first round? Which player are you most surprised to see go undrafted in the first 31 picks?
