You are right that he isnt a top 5 talent...but supply/ demand elevates his stock enough to put him there.
I agree with you there....I think he may end up at 13 to the Panthers. Even if Delhomme comes back from his surgery, he is 33 and having Ryan in there a year or two to learn from him wouldn't be a bad thing.

There are two critical points in the upcoming draft that revolve around Matt Ryan.

1. Does Atlanta take him at # 3 and turn the draft upside down??? They could trade down if Dorsey is gone?

2. When Matt Ryan gets to #5 Kansas City hold a major trump card. They seriously might take him there as they sent both Herm Edwards and GM Carl Peterson to his college workout ( the only team to do so). The Jets (if McFadden goes to the Raiders) and the Ravens have shown an indication that they may want him then they will have to deal with the Chiefs to get him.

Yes Steelymcmatt he is not top 5 talent but unfortunately the gap between him and the rest might just make him that highly valued.

I think he might even hold the key for the steelers as well. If he goes early then if a team wants Brohm they may get nervous and take him 10 spots earlier than warranted. That #23 spot looks pretty enticing.

Gotta love this time of the year.

I think this is the IDEAL situation....trading out of 23 for a 2nd and 3rd. Just a matter of seeing what draft day brings.

I wouldn't mind seeing us trade down and gain a couple more picks.

Food for thought.....
Sounds like the Rams are leaning towards Dorsey, which means the Falcons will probably take Ryan. I don't think Al can avoid either McFadden or Gholston which drops Long to the Chiefs and the Jets will get either McFadden or Gholston. I wouldn't be suprised at all to see the Chiefs come back with 17 and take Brohm/Flacco/Henne. That may be the impetus that the Dolphins need to move back up into the 1st and get the qb they covet, whoever that is. According to the new trade chart that would cost them their 2nd and 3rd to get to 23.....I'd jump at that, what about you?
