Well.....if he can play CB in the NFL I'll be wrong, but we don't need a S right now.

Well, The Giants will take an OLB (most likely Weatherspoon) no question about it.

That's funny cause I was wondering why we haven't seen him tonight.

I've got my fingers crossed. Never thought he'd be available at #18. Stick him in at RT and move Colon to RG.

Iupati, Bulaga, Wilson....we can get one of these three guys at this point.

BritishSteel

LT Bryan Bulaga ?
CB Kyle Wilson ?
DT Dan Williams ?
LB Ricky Sapp ?

who do u want a 18 now

or Tebow :)

Bulaga is very tempting if he's still there, though I think Wilson represents instant upgrade in a position of greater need.

Nah, screw it - if Bulaga is still there, I'd take him.

With all the new Roughing WR rules really What is the point?

Sigh.

Its not all about the big hits.

Its about having to account for TWO safeties.

In reality, we could actually field a team that looks like it has 3 lineman, 2 CB's, and 6 Linebackers--with the way our safeties play.

We could also keep Clark in there and keep 3 LB's, sometimes... and play a 3-3-3, moving the safeties up and back.... moving the LB's up and back, heck, even dropping Ziggy to inside OLB for a play or two. He does have the speed.

The Duke

but the guy is relentless, just what the giants D is about

bye bye Osi?

I love it!!

but seriously, who? Iupati, bulaga, dan williams, kile wilson?....

WE are looking good for Bulaga unless a trade comes up

I have fingers and toes crossed that we can snag Bulaga. :hope:

The suspense is mind-blowing!

miss the show here are some of the rules
* He’s got all the intangibles
* This guy’s the real deal
* He’s a playmaker
* For a big guy he’s got great feet
* In the war room (they call all the draft rooms war rooms, I’m picturing Shanahan charging out of a room with colorful face paint and a shield and spear lunging at Andy Reid in a loin cloth for some reason)
* Upside
* A “reach” pick
* Versatile
* Anytime Chris Berman comes up with a nickname for a player (in related news I will be watching the NFL Network for tonight’s live blog) Dan Patrick killed me when he mimicked Berman and said Ndamaken “a boy named” Suh. That’s not real, is it? Did Berman actually nickname him that?
* Let’s go to Mort
* This is a character guy
* This guy has raw talent
* On the clock
* Every time they show footage of someone waiting in the green room, you have to finish your drink.

In case any of the lurkers are playing the Draft drinknig game as well.

TheWarDen86
04-22-2010, 08:15 PM

Okay:

Titans: Dan Williams or Derrick Morgan?

Move Starks over to the right again and Colon inside where he belongs. That's an instant killer o-line if you ask me.

With his size, I wouldn't want him... I'd rather have Mays from what I have seen (little I have seen).

could you imagine having to account for BOTH Mays and Troy?

It's not going to happen because EVERYONE other than you and I want to spend money on an offensive lineman in the first even though the guy won't start this year at all unless someone gets hurt, and our offense didn't struggle last year even with an average Oline (which will be better this year even if we don't draft and offensive lineman)

Mays isn't the smart pick.....
...it's not the popular pick....

...but it's the pick I want. I'd rather have Troy play free safety to save his body and Taylor to be our strong safety of the future...but that's just you and I Preach.

Do we trade down?

Wow. With Puncey, Buluga, on the board, and Falcons having great need on defense.., and Texands Possibly focusing on D, and the Bengals needing TE or WR maybe,


It seems that we have enough on the board to trade down,

Regardless of waht the Pats take, we would still wind up with a good pick, AND a third round pick maybe...

I think he can play LT, at worst be a great RT. I think the Value now is either at CB with Wilson or LT with Bulaga. Which means the Steelers will go Pouncey. :doh:

Nice thing is, Hartwig can move to RG, and Kemo can move out to a Tackle position. I think this can really stabilize our line.

I think what will happen is the opposite.. Pouncey plays guard until Hartwig can no longer go at Center

Nice thing is, Hartwig can move to RG, and Kemo can move out to a Tackle position. I think this can really stabilize our line.

can kemo play tackle?

Preacher
04-22-2010, 08:34 PM
I think what will happen is the opposite.. Pouncey plays guard until Hartwig can no longer go at Center

Possible, but I haven't been too impressed with Hartwig at center. He has been serviceable, but not good.

Wasn't necessarily a reach until a bunch of other teams started picking second rounders in the first.

He would have been there early 2nd...we should have picked Wilson and traded up in the 2nd for Pouncey if we actually coveted him that bad.

Look, you KNOW it's bad if Kiper accurately makes your pick in the middle-late round.

I would have hoped that the steelers would have shown some brains and selected Dan Williams because Casey Hampton is getting old and NT is a very important position or atleast go for value if they decided not to address the defense.

People need to stop relying on their mock drafts when deciding of a player is good or not. They are projections. The draft is reality. Bulaga and Wilson were passed over because in the eyes of NFL teams, they weren't good enough. Now, they might prove everyone wrong. But MOCK DRAFTS are not a judge of talent.

Nice thing is, Hartwig can move to RG, and Kemo can move out to a Tackle position. I think this can really stabilize our line.pouncey doesnt know the plays or line calls. hartwig does. pounce battles with urbick in camp for RG (probably wins) and learns lining up next to hartwig for a year.

That is interesting to ponder.....but with the defensive depth in the draft, there should be a good CB around at the 2nd, or talk is that Roger Saffold is being viewed as a LT prospect.

I think we try to keep the first 3 round picks, then maybe use a 4th and 6th to move up if needed.

The fact that he plays G and C makes him more valuable than the other OL to the Steelers. He'll play G and eventually take over C.
