  1. I did give us a 3rd and 4th. I gave up #59 overall for the #70 and #114 picks overall.
  2. I would have preferred McGill if I thought he could be there, I just don't think he will be. Phillip Gaines was another guy I really considered, but he may not be there either. To me, SJB seemed like the most likely option, but in my mind I rank the three McGill>Gaines>SJB.
  3. I can't really decide. And the reality is, we probably won't get any of these guys lol.
  4. I never do these, and to be quite frank, I almost didn't do one at all because it's so impossible to do, but I've got two mocks - one no trade, the other with a trade. But in the spirit of the draft, I'll do one. Enjoy ripping it to shreds! Mock #1 (no trade) 2/27 - Terrence Brooks, S. Should fill the hole created by Bethea's departure and do it nicely. Plays man well and good support in the run game. 3/26 - Marcus Smith, OLB. I've opened up to him more, and this pick assumes that Werner moves over to the Sam position. Very good pass rush and solid in coverage. 5/26 - Brandon T
  5. I've revised this thing so many times I'm just throwing it up. There's so many guys I like and not enough slots - or draft picks. Round 2 - #59 A- Terrence Brooks, FS B- Kyle Van Noy, OLB C- Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB Round 3 - #90 A- Keith McGill, CB B- Dion Bailey, FS C-Trai Turner, OG Round 5 - #166 A – Brandon Thomas, OG B- Preston Brown, ILB C- Antone Exum, DB Round 6 - #203 A- Howard Jones, OLB B- Aaron Lynch, DE C- Khyri Thornton, DT Round 7 - #232 A- Jon Halapio, OG B- Walt Aikens, CB C- Ryan Lankford, WR
  6. Count me in with the Mack over Clowney camp. It's not that Mack is a better physical specimen, i'ts that he doesn't take plays off like Clowney. Give Clowney Mack's heart and then I'd take Clowney. But I'm not using a first pick on a guy with questions at work ethic. I really just don't understand the argument that he took plays off to preserve his draft status. That should scare anyone that picks him. If the coaches want to preserve him for the playoffs and sit him on plays, that's one thing. But a football player should never make the unilateral decision to take plays off. The team c
  7. Couple of trades for our 2/27 that make the most sense point-wise and is pretty fair for both sides via the draft chart chable. Here's what we could conceivably get: SEA - 2/32 and 4/32 - trade favors no team at 0 points CLE - 3/7 and 4/6 - trade favors Indy by 7 points DEN - 3/31 and 4/31 - trade favors Indy by 7 points JAX - 3/6 and 4/14 - trade favors JAX by 7 points
  8. That might be true for some...I wouldn't take him in the 5th...
  9. No, you're not. Part of it is realism, the other part is, schematic. Ward would be good here...but so would Brooks. Who would be better could never be decided on these forums.
  10. He was on the Cardinals when Skelton, Kolb and some other guy sucked it up. He couldn't beat out any of those guys either. I get the argument you're trying to make...but I'm sorry..it's a losign one. He's been a backup to a bunch of guys that wouldn't even be backups on other teams. So yeah, he had a couple of good games...the likelihood is it was an aberration.
  11. A) No, he didn't...he threw for 320ish. B) It took him 4 and a half years to do it.
  12. He only played two full games. No one is ready to call him the guy yet, much less the QB of a top 10 offense. Thats especially true for a guy thats been q career backup. Couldnt even break the starting linup at a team that went through 4 QBs in one year.
  13. Hoyer? No. It wont matter until they get a better qb. They get a top 15 qb and then we'll talk.
  14. The only thing I wish it did was, in addition to labeling each pick by it's overall number, I wish it would label each by its' overall number relative to the round you're looking at (i.e. 3rd round, 9th pick, or just 3/9 for short). Since a lot of times you're using both designations.
  15. No joke about the tackling. It's possible that the hamstring (I think that was his nagging issue) was part of the cause, but with or without the injury, he's no good to us if he can't tackle.
  16. I had a really hard time coming to terms with that fact this year. I wanted to believe (and a part of me still does) that Landry could be better in coverage if we got more pressure on the QB gave some relief to the secondary from having to cover their man while the QB sits in the pocket for 5 minutes at a time. But even if that did happen, I don't think it will cover for the mistakes, thus the more I like the idea of moving him to FS.
  17. First, welcome to the forums. Glad you've decided to come join the fun here on these forums. Second, I'm not questioning what you have and have not done because I've never met you. But I think that regardless of what the positional coaches or scouts tell you, it's all tongue in cheek. They have dozens of people asking them for guys they like and who they want to draft. I could ask one guy what DE he likes most, and he could say Marcus Smith. You could ask him 30 minutes later and he might say Taylor Hart. There's so much cloak and dagger and misinformation going on from the combine th
  18. Underrated = sleeper. He's jsut asking about our predictions.
  19. I like Trai as a 4th round prospect. I think he could be a 2nd round prospect if he had stayed another year at LSU. He's got to improve his footwork and lateral agility. Watching him pull on film was painful at times. He looked incredibly stiff. Also, his pass blocking needs work. It's really hard to pinpoint it, because his pass blocking looks so awkward sometimes in 3 step drop passes, but he wins more often than not. But I think his main issue is he lets guys into his chest. Good upside, but will probably need a year. I still think I like Dozier better, but if he's gone and we're h
  20. Still, it's pre-season. Absolutely meaningless. Any benefit you'll get from putting Reitz in will be marginal. I'd rather have Reitz as a utility OL coming in with certain packages and in the event of injury. He's got better value there.
  21. And I thought all those years we struggled supporting Manning was just a fluke. We just didn't try hard enough in the draft I guess lol.
  22. Sigh. It was so much better when it was a Saturday/Sunday event. It's really getting old watching the NFL blatantly try to squeeze every conceivable dollar from every conceivable source. Not that I really support a 4 day draft, but if I did at all, they should cut the first day into two separate days. 4 and 1/2 to 5 hours for the first day is just too long considering it starts at 8:00 pm.
  23. More bodies doesn't equal quanlity of players. Once you get to the 3rd round, solid contributors (not to be confused with starters) are much harder to come by and those are primarily found in the early 3rd. I'm okay with trading back, btu I'm very mcuh against trading next year's second for this year's third and so on and so forth, unless there's a guy there who for some reason is a 2nd round talent and dropped to the 4th or something. But that's on a draft day basis. Very hard to predict that sort of thing, let alone doing it twice.
