It can be in any round or as a free agent. As a Georgia fan i am hoping that they draft marcus howard at some point.

look out for number 38

More info

Marcus Howard (Georgia) DE

Is he undersized for the position? Yes. Did he have an eye popping performance at the Combine? Yes. This is a kid who had a fantastic season at Georgia with 10 -1/2 sacks, and who could be drafted to play Linebacker in the NFL, a position he played back a few seasons ago. Few if any lineman or linebackers can match his raw speed, being clocked in 4.47 for the 40. Breaks extremely well from the line, and has more than enough agility and balance to justify taking a chance on him. Among the teams that could use him are the Bengals and the Falcons, both of whom had trouble getting to the Quarterback last year.

Good choice, Maybe Thomas Brown will end up in the black and Gold as well. Nice to see a fellow georgian on the board.

Go Steelers and Dawgs!:cheers:

FB/RB Jerome Felton from Furman....I would look so forward to seeing him make hood ornaments out of defensive players.

Ther are alot of other players in this draft that I would take before him because of need...but none that I would "on the edge of my seat" excited about like I would to see a TRUE big back running over the opposition!!

We could use another bruiser in the backfield

The one kid that I have really gotten to like is Kendall Langford. I think he could do a very good job for us at DE.
Remember Smiths injury.

Would you settle for Dre Moore? I really like that kid.

Jacob Hester, Jordy Nelson, Mike Hart, Doug Legursky.

I love guys with great work ethic that overachieve.

As Bill Parcells said "effort without talent is painful to watch.....but talent without effort is a downright shame to see"

absolutely !!! i'd be thrilled with either one in the second. i think henderson would be the perfect guy to start grooming as farriors successer.i also believe moore would be an upgrade over kiesel.

A dozen broken facemasks in his career, not his, the masks belong to the poor bastards that got in his way.

That's a really exellent question.

I've always been of the opinion that I don't the pro team I root for to draft any of my favorite college players. If they do that, and the player sucks, then it spoils my memory of him as a college player.

It's the same reason I don't get upset when the Steelers pass over players from my school. But I know that puts me firmly in the minority.

Jake Long. A boy can dream, no?

Jake Long. A boy can dream, no?

Interesting. I think that he may be a little overrated right now. I'd like him a lot better at 15 than I would at 5.

But time will tell. I also loved D'Brickshaw Ferguson at #1 overall and we see how that one has turned out.

Dre Moore and James Stewart (in case Willie aint made it back)

Gonzo, I, too would LOVE to see Jordy Nelson in Black and Gold.

Unfortunately, there is some really NICE talent out there around the third pick. I may be more excited about that round than the first!

He's 6'3 217 and a dynamo.

He had some huge avg. reception numbers and is fearless over the middle, utilizing the stiff arm for some nice extra yards.

That would be Aliq Talib he's cooking around minute 1.

Yeah, he definitely isn't a top 3 round draft pick or anything, but I like Jacob Hester. Tough, overachieving kind of guy that will give you 100% all the time.

and for future jasper brinkley MLB SOUTh carolina and if possible rey mauluga (hes a top 5 pick in my opinion), michael oher (another top 5 pick)

Chris Johnson.....He would be a great addition to our kick return game.....Plus he could add to our RB depth....I like Moore but Johnson could be a special return man....

i'd rather have leodis mckelvin in the first and maybe godfrey and branch in the later rounds over DRC simply because they are all superb in run support and each make their share of big hits..

04-11-2008, 03:12 PM
drc is a good very good corner.. he is just from a small school.. but i would also like to get dan connor to play the inside.. :o him timmons and woodly, and then get another very young talented lb.. we could have our 4 lb's 4 a very long time
