Who do YOU want?

77 posts in this topic

Rookie DE Sheldon Richardson. He could be our JJ Watt of this defense. We need a relentless motor guy.

In free agency, I would want LT Ryan Clady. If he is resigned then OG Louis Vasquez or OT Brandon Albert.

Draft: Kenyon Barner..a fast, elusive back, that has great hands, and can break tackles..He would be a perfect compliment to Ballard in the backfield, and we need more quality depth at RB..(after the OL is addressed)

Free Agents...Any of the aforementioned OL...Clady would be awesome to get...but he'll more than likely be franchised..

Facepalm...you are right after the OL is addressed and also after D-Line and secondary.

I want Chance Warmack.

I do like Barner alot though, But give a healthy Donald Brown an O Line in front of him then he can be real good

The reason I said Barner is

A.) Look at our RB situation for this week..Ballard beat up, (but still playing)..Brown out, Carter hurt and has fumbleitis, and the other guy..Hughes..

B.) We probably could get him in later rounds, without sacrificing early picks for OL, and if we don't its not a big loss...

C.) More than likely, we will address the secondary, DL, and any other position through FA, since we will be way under the cap...

Just because it isn't a pressing need...doesn't make it a wrong pick...We need to build for depth, as well as talent.. (see last years draft with 2 TE's and 2 QB's)

I agree..Ballard and Brown, (when healthy), is a decent backfield...with a good OL, they'd be very good..but it couldn't hurt in the later rounds, to pick up a guy like Barner (projected to be a 4th to 6th rounder) Depth at RB is very important nowadays in the NFL, with all the injuries to backs..Side note..I haven't checked his projected round lately, so it may have gone up a bit. I just like Barner's hands and toughness. With all our cap space, why not take a flyer on him, if available from the 4th-6th round.

Hard to pick just one from my FA list but I'll go with Jairus Byrd.

Draft Xavier Rhodes.....I've noticed a few others are getting on the Rhodes train, but it needs more members.

Im with ya on Barners talent no question. we may have a shot at him in later rounds although I dont know how later you mean. There are all kinds of ways to try to deal with needs and depth and talent to go eith those needs and positional depth. Our drafting two Tight Ends obviously had to do with lack of any depth, and talent. Now we obviously have depth at RB, I dont buy the argument that RB has lost some value because the NFL has moved to a more pass friendly league because 3 running backs went in the first round alone this year(I dont see that happening in the next draft). We have at least 3 running backs right now though under contract for the foreeable future, Brown 1 more year, Carter-I forget the exact number but more then 1 and Ballard more then 1, We have no O Line for any of these guys to run behind and they were all real talented in College so I dont believe that they are the problem or that drafting another talented running back will solve our problems, combine that with other needs and I just would not draft him especially cause he is probably a mid round pick at this point anyway. extremely fast and I like him but not enough to draft him

You're not going to get Barner in the later rounds. He'll likely be gone by the end of the 3rd round. We've got other much more pressing needs.

If he falls to later rounds.... then fine... but otherwise....

Rhodes is likely not a 1st round guy. Likely a 2nd or 3rd round guy. I don't want him in the first round and the Colts don't have a 2nd round pick, so I think our chances of getting him are not very high... if he somehow falls to the 3rd round, then great....

But otherwise.....

Could happen (technically, like I said I wouldnt go for him) but there are plenty of running backs that could go early (some of which wont because of off the field issues)

Montee Ball

Stepfan Taylor

Joseph Taylor

Eddie Lacey

Le'veon Bell

Silas Redd

Micheal Dyer

Cierre Wood

Some may not come out but enough could to push Barner to the later rounds given and there are enough more high profile Backs who could be argued are better for one reason or another

even though a couple have another year of eligibility

Or, how about we build depth where we have none I.E. both offensive and defensive line and also have fringe talent there. The combo of Ballard and Brown is more than enough.

I swear you people act like I said I wanted him first overall, or above anyone else. This is a thread about who each of us personally would like to see on the team. I also said if he is available 4-6th rounds, why not take a flyer...

I stated many times that we need OL help first and foremost, and we have other needs as well...DL, secondary...etc...We are over 35 mil in cap space, so some will be addressed by FA . We always need depth at all positions, just like any other team...

Another reason I stated why not take a shot in a later round if he's still available...is look at our RB situation right now..Brown's been hurt for a lot of the season...when he's in he's a very good back...Ballard is playing so well, but the season is taking its toll..Carter is hurt, and has a great tendency to fumble, hence him getting benched for a lot of the year..We had to pick up Karim this week just to have some kind of back up...This doesn't bode well for us in the upcoming weeks, with us heading into the playoffs..So why not take a flyer on a mid round pick if he's available...I'm not saying we have to...its something I wouldn't mind seeing...

Like I said..I wouldn't mind seeing him in Colt Blue..will it happen, probably not..Its just something I personally wouldn't mind seeing...which is what the title of this thread is all about..its no skin off my back if we do or we don't...

I respect your opinion, you have a lot of football knowledge, but you know as well as anyone that various websites prospect projections are meaningless to teams. Last year I was really wanting Derek Wolfe in the 4th round based on projections, but he ended up going in the early 2nd. Russell Wilson was supposed to be a late round project pick. I am no scout, but when I look at Rhodes' game, I see a first round pick.

Appreciate the kind words.....

But, this is why I don't pay much attention to most websites. Most literally have no idea what they're talking about. Especially once they get past the first round.

Kiper/McShay/Nawrocki (Pro Football Weekly)....

I believe their information to be closer to reality.... I wasn't surprised at all on Wolfe last April, he was a Kiper/McShaw favorite. Wilson went one round higher than I expected, but I didn't see him as a late round pick. Rhodes has slipped in the grading of these guys. Not a lot. Not that far. But a little.

And these grades are far from set in stone. They'll change plenty between now and late April. This is just the snapshot as of today. Much will change in the next 4 months.

Hope this helps....

I'm waiting for Mike Mayock's prospect breakdowns. I love watching games where he's a commentator....very knowledgeable football guy. The thing about Rhodes, he has not had the kind of numbers he had last year. A lot of guys put too much stock in numbers. He is a Nnamdi Asomugha clone in both size and being a predominantly press corner. I don't know about you, but I love my corners to be able to press. Disregarding the last couple of years by Nnamdi, where he has given up more targets/completions than he did for years in Oakland, he has never been a numbers guy....he's been a guy that QBs just don't throw at. That is the kind of corner I want.

Whether or not he pans out is to be determined obviously, and I'm not scout, I just want Grigson to get us a big press corner.

Mayock is another guy I like.... I just wish he did more of it. Seems to focus on the draft once the regular season is over... So, until then, I stick with the three I mentioned above...

Good point on Rhodes and press coverage. My one concern right now on Rhodes is size. I worry he's too big. That if he's that big when he enters the NFL, how big will he get a few years down the road. I don't want him to grow into a safety, at least, not if we spend a #1. If we can nab him in the 3rd round (not sure we can) or the 2nd round (if we trade down) then that's another possibility.

Just thinking out loud here in this post.... so many moving parts.

Right now I'm thinking about beefing up both lines. We'll win or lose at the Line of Scrimmage. Gotta get younger, more physical and more athletic on both sides of the line.

Just my two cents...

Can't argue with that. The Free Agency crops are a lot stronger in the trenches (especially on the Dline) than they are at corner, so I feel Grigson will improve the lines through that...at least that's how I'd do it.

FA- Clady

Rookie- Chance Warmack

I know the question was who we want, and I too would love to get both these guys ... but I think the chances are very slim we will get either.

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
