Did you see any Saints games last year?? Pierre Thomas looked really good averaging 4.8 YPC while Reggie Bush had 3.7YPC. Thomas beat out 4th round pick Antonio Pittman for the Saints roster spot. This just in....Mendenhall had to sit because Thomas is a good back.

i have sour grapes over kenny phillips and dajuan morgan? damn straight i do i honestly think if your to look at most mock drafts around the web 95-99% of them will have kenny phillips going before dajuan morgan... So if Mayock doesnt agree with 99% of the mock drafts he is wrong?? Are you a member or leader of the FLAT EARTH SOCIETY??

hmm let's see teams with O-line as a NEED that pick b4 us: Miami, St. Louis, Atlanta, Oakland, Kansas City, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Arizona, Houston, Philidelphia,

while i don't think all of them will take a O-lineman there's a possibility that otah, long, clady, williams nd ether cherilus/baker are taken before we pick...
Could happen that all those guys are gone, but face it.....If Miami takes Jake Long, then St Louis isnt going for Clady #2 and Atlanta #3 Chris Williams, then Oakland Otah because they are the best available. If it does happen, then we just take Brandon Albert or the best D-lineman available and target Carl Nicks or Heath Benedict in the 2nd.

My point is Kipers mock is old and probably not relevant. Should wait till he puts out a new one. I prefer Mayock's opinion because he backs up his rationale with film study and he knows the game as an ex pro. I dont know that Kiper ever picked up a football in his life.

Wow.....I really think of him as a cover 2 guy because he lacks great speed to go deep with WR's. Then again, Asante Samuel isnt exactly a speedster, but plays the ball well.

can mcfadden even break a tackle? i know he is fast, but in the few games i have watched him play and the highlight videos, i see no body lean. he runs upright too much. he isn't very big either. that style of running could take its toll in the NFL.

didn't all of the arkansas RBs do well?

That's the question that some are asking. 6'2" 210, with breakaway speed, but thin legs that doesnt break a lot of tackles when first contacted. Kind of reminds me of Jerious Norwood of the Falcons (5'11", 200lbs).

IF the Steelers could just find the courage to go out in free agency and sign us a great Center to take Mahans place and move him to LG then we would be set I think. Mahan is a G not a Center. I think that the Steelers are not gonna be able to keep Starks even though they transitioned him. That is just too much $$$ for him. Steelers need to draft a LOT in the draft if there is a quality one left and either let him set behind Marvell Smith one year or move Marvell back to his original spot at ROT.

same can be said about AP... he almost led the league in rushing... but i definitely see what you mean by it could take it's toll...
