We just may have a guard or tackle waiting for us in the first.

Jacksonville just traded with the Rats.

They're now on the clock at number 8. This will cost them a lot.

2 projected OT's have fallen out of the top 10. this may ensure a top 5 lineman is there when we go at 23.

Edman
04-26-2008, 03:01 PM
NE trade with NO. If they fleece the Saints I'll puke.

NE moves to 10 and get a 3rd round pick.

NO moves to 5 and gets a 5th rounder.

Fleece.

WTF was that pick Derrick Harvey lol hahahha lmao!
What ever bungles got river, all lineman on the board still so lets do this! But ratbirds are dum watch they will pick a bad player just watch. Draft has been preatty predictable besides the Harvey pick.

It's gonna take more than Mayo to fix that Defense.

Preacher
04-26-2008, 03:17 PM
Pick 11.. and there are still what... 5 good lineman out there?

We could trade up to get the last one of those if there is a run.

We may just get a good lineman in this draft!

BIGBENFASTWILLIE
04-26-2008, 03:18 PM
Chris Williams
Ryan Clady

Jeff Otah

All on the board........I would be happy with any of these (in this order)

12-19 could be a ton of linemen. All those teams could be looking, but not many surprise picks need to happen for us to get a top 5 tackle.

Panthers, bears and Chiefs VERY likely to go OL.

I know Otah is local, but I'd like Williams over him. He's a prototypical left tackle. I think Otah may be better on the right side.

Why would they take stewart over mendenhall and felix?

tony hipchest
04-26-2008, 03:29 PM
good move by teams to not let stewart fall. that just pushes albert and otah, further down the board.

and if nothing, gives us a better shot at cherilus

panthers apparently don't trust deangelo williams. that sucks, I like him

at least now we don't have stewart

We need youth and depth on the line... go first and second.

We need depth on the D line... thats next year.. with one WR.

That is really all we need.


with respect preacher, we can't wait until next year for depth on out d'line. Remember what happened when aaron Smith went down? And what about d'back and WR. I'm a big deshea fan but we really need to find another corner. We have some concern about safety as well with ryans health as well. Sorry but i have to disagree with you here. If we had out 7th round pick and a few compensatory picks this year i would agree with you.

Here is how I am thinking about this...

If you look at WR... we are set for another year. We have some young guys that should be able to pick up the slack this year.

Or DB's are fine. We have both B-Mac and now Gay that can step up in a need. At least for this year.

The one place I could probably agree is the line.

However, I think the problems with our O line is MUCH WORSE than any of those positions. In short, if we improve our O line, we improve our defense as well. I say put the focus there. then make next years draft a d line draft.

BettisFan

WizDom-N.KnowLedge
04-26-2008, 03:51 PM
I personally dont think that Jax gave up to much. 2 thirds and a fourth to jump into the top 10 is actually pretty cheap. Dallas was rumored to be willing to surrender 2 frist just to pick 4 spots of where Jax did.

The Chiefs of the other hand are having an excellent draft to this point. They have gotten both value and quality with each pick.

If Mendenhall somehow falls to number 23, how many would oppose to his selection?
i dont think i would. not what i would hope for though.

with arizona passing on him i think he will go to the lions.

Hmm.. I guess we may get a Guard or RB yet!

04-26-2008, 03:54 PM
Here is how I am thinking about this...

If you look at WR... we are set for another year. We have some young guys that should be able to pick up the slack this year.

Or DB's are fine. We have both B-Mac and now Gay that can step up in a need. At least for this year.

The one place I could probably agree is the line.

However, I think the problems with our O line is MUCH WORSE than any of those positions. In short, if we improve our O line, we improve our defense as well. I say put the focus there. then make next years draft a d line draft.


Not bad points, but you are assuming that Gay will be able to be a good cb this year. That may be, but it is far from a sure thing. We have been succesful in the past not because all of our picks have been right ,but rather that by not trading away amost of our picks like the skins and the brownies, we are able to pick up a number of good quality players. Sure we traded up for Ben and Troy but I don't see those type players on the board at the moment.
