and you think the Ravens wouldnt match it ? Ngata will sign his new contract in the range of 6 years 80 mil with at least 30 mil guaranteed.

I want Essex back for sure. I like his versatility and ability to play RG, RT and LT.

J. Scott and W. Colon, I'm not so sure. If it means our run game suffers with Colon, I'd say pass and try to develop someone who can take over for Adams in 2012.

I'm not so sure about that. With the 30-32nd pick, all the good tackles may be gone. We may be able to get a quality guard but tackle, ...I'm not so sure. When people get desperate and they start elevating tackles, it can get messy. Look at Vlad Ducasse. He sucks...yet he was rated high. The best ones always go in the top 20. After that there is a drop off.

I'm glad we didn't take Bulaga. He struggled somewhat.

I like it. Place Mankins at LG then draft Mike Pouncey to play RG. That would be a strong middle.

It would weaken the Pats at the same time. Great call.
Can you believe Kemo made more than Mankins?

The Steelers should have offered a #2 pick for him when he was holding out. I mentioned that in an earlier post.

We have to many holes to fill via the draft. I know that sounds silly being we are in the AFCC. I think this is about as far as we can ride some of these guys as far as age goes.

This is why I want to fill the holes on the O line and secondary quickly while we have all these guys. I want to make a run this year and for 2 more years whie we still have all the guys and Ike, Keisel, Harrison, etc. are still young enough to make the run.

Some people are talking about developing guys 3-4 years away. Sure. We should always have guys on the back burner, but this team is primed right now to make 3 runs if we can fill some gaps. This is why i wanted nmandi. He's expensive...yes...but we could possibly add 2 more SBs with him to get to 9 (if we can win this year). I'll even take old Champ Bailey if he can give us 2 years of solid play.

Still a break from Jets talk.

I really would like if we did get Mankins. Can you imagine. I would feel bad for Kemo but who cares.

Starks-Mankins-Pouncey-Pouncey-Adams

Solid line.

Maybe J Joseph is not a possibility.

Bengals LCB Johnathan Joseph, an impending free agent, made it clear that he have would no problem being slapped with the franchise tag in 2011.

"I'd sign it the first day," he said. "Hopefully we can get a deal done before then." The Bengals are expected to experience a lot of roster turnover in 2011 with so many free agents to address. Joseph, the most valuable of the lot, is the rare player who wants to stay with the inept franchise on the heels of another disastrous season.

Well I don't know if we'll be able to draft Pouncey. If go to the Super Bowl, and hopefully win, we'll be 32nd pick and by that time I believe he'll be gone. But then again, teams my pass him up because of his comments of Steelers winning the Super Bowl. Or maybe he'll play "bad" in the senior bowl.

Yeah...I think he may be gone too. Some are saying second round because he struggled at center but I don't think so. I think his brothers name (success) and same genes will boost him up. He can play guard. I just hope Baltimore doesn't pick him to piss us off.

It will be interesting to see where Mayock ranks him tomorrow (today). He will release his top 5 at each position.

I'd like him because I think his brother can bring him up to speed quickly and they would inspire each other.

Mankins and Ngata will both be signed to huge contracts by there teams. there is no way either will hit the market. it would be nice to land Joseph but i dont see Cinni letting him go either. we really need a corner and another guard so we can make a run at the super bowl in 2012
