ESPN Insider has their mock up. They have Risto gone at 10 and the Flyers taking Nurse.

Pick analysis: Even though I have Nurse lower on my personal list, I think the Flyers will select him, especially after losing Chris Pronger to injury. While I have other defensemen rated higher because of offensive upside, Nurse has skill and could prove to be better than I have projected. Philly has always been known for playing with truculence, and there is little doubt about Nurse's ability to handle himself in that area. There is a ton of battle in his overall game. I get the sense this pick will mark the passing of the torch from Pronger to Nurse. And wouldn't it be interesting to see the nephew of former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb land in Philly?
