The best pick of the draft came via a trade. The Falcons getting Asante Samuel for a 7th round is highway robbery. A guy on NFLN said that only 9% of all 6th and 7th rounders ever become full-time starters. The Falcons gave up their pick for a stud corner who will give them 4-5 levels of great secondary play. They also have a top 3-4 corner tandem in the league now that they have Asante and Dunta back there. The Panthers, Saints, and Bucs aren't going to be able to light up that secondary nearly as much anymore.
Heard a rumor that of the 15 Texans taken in the first 3 rounds, ZERO were offered by Texas.
I'm actually having listen to a few of the morons on another site bitch and complain that Leach sucked because he didn't land RGIII or Tanneyhill. they also say it's TSO's fault that for the first time in 15 years, a Red raider wasn't drafted. I say it's a lack of coaching for the past 2 years...
My bigger point is, that if that first tidbit is true, that even Mr February misses on some....
So much wrong with that list. Keenan Allen is not a top overall pick. Unless you are Megatron 2.0, you have very little chance of being a top 5 pick much less the top overall guy. I could see Barkley being a top 5 pick (he's not talented enough for it though, but at least he's not a douchebag like Leinhart), I just don't see it being to Jacksonville. I don't think they'll give up on Gabbert after two years. When your top two receiving options are an average tight end and a 5'7 running back, you need weapons. Blackmon will help, but they'll need at least 3 seasons to get an accurate assessment of if Gabbert can be a productive pro or not. He does have the physical tools, he just needs to get the mental aspect down. Marcus Lattimore is too low. He's not quite the athlete that Adrian Peterson was, but he's far more polished as a receiver and a blocker. If he comes back from that injury better than before, he'll be a top 5 guy. There is absolutely no way that the Honey Badger will be a first round pick. Zero. He put up some numbers in college, but that's because Claiborne and their other corners were lock down the outside so that gave him favorable matchups and made it easier for him to blitz off the edge. Guy will be a nickelback at best. Alabama proved in the NCG game that if you attack him in he passing and running game rather than wait for him passively that you can shut him down and make him quit. Robert Lester and Eddie Lacy have no business in the first round. Looks like they just took top names from top name colleges and just threw them on there hoping they stick. No more than 10-12 of those guys will actually be first rounders.
Darron Thomas is the Jevan Snead of this class. A QB with somewhat pedestrian numbers who had absolutely no business leaving college early.
Did I miss why Jeff Fuller went undrafted? Did he get hurt late? Seemed like a sure fire early round draft pick.
So Gideon signed with the Cardinals
Christian Scott got a deal with the Titans
Cody Johnson got on with the Bucs........did anybody take a flyer on Fozzy? I can't seem to find any info.....
Looks like Justin Tucker did went to the Ravens after all.
Poor Fozzy, that kid has the worst of luck. Just when he was finally starting to shine an injury strikes again, what a damn shame. Hopefully he latches on somewhere.
Fozzy to the steelers! Make it happen.
Still, he's good at going up for the ball, catching in traffic, and showed much better hands in previous years before his disastrous senior season. Might be something to work with.
Brandon Collins to the Giants. Ben Wells to the Redskins.
I can't wait for Gideon to drop a Super Bowl-saving interception. $#@! that guy.
many are predicting a USC-LSU title game next year but how will LSU get there when losing 3 NFL DBs and a stud NFL DT? Even if they make it to Miami, won't Barkley carve them up like no one they have witnessed playing in the SEC?
That preliminary draft list is stupid. There is no $#@!ing way in hell WRs are going #1 and #2 in the draft unless the franchises drafting there are complete regards.
i'd favor alabama over lsu as the sec team to beat at this point.
