  • Sure thing / highest risk...

    Who do you feel are the prospects that are locks to be productive in the NFL? On the flip side how do you feel are the boom or bust picks in the draft?

    Safe
    Jake Long
    Darren McFadden

    Boom or bust
    Calais Campbell
    Michael Oher
    Desean Jackson
    Colt Brennan

    Safe
    Chris Long
    Dan Connor
    Kenny Phillips

    Risky
    Steve Slaton- He may be another one of those fast college backs that finds out that NFL defenses can keep up with his speed...like Reggie Bush

    Phil Loadholt- 1 year wonder with big time physical measurables...could be boom or bust

      Reggie Bush is already one of the most popular players in the NFL, and hes gonna be a face in the NFL for a long time.....

          Safe:
          Jake Long (A beast who excels at run blocking)
          Sam Baker (A footwork beast who excels at pass blocking)
          Chris Long (More or less can do anything on the field he so chooses)
          Glenn Dorsey (...)
          Sendrick Ellis (Warren Sapp V.2)
          Malcolm Jenkins (If you wanted to label a player a shut-down corner, he is the man.)

          Boom/Bust:
          Calais Campbell (Great measurables, but disappears)
          Every Junior/Senior QB (No one stands out)
          Dwight Lowery (Great Junior year, not so great Senior year)
          Mike Hart/Ray Rice (Due to excessive workload)

                I'm sorry if I'm derailing the thread here but I have to comment on this...

                He's marketable, big ****ing deal. As one of his biggest supporters coming out of the draft I'm sick of him taking so long to explode. It took Adrian Peterson has been over hundred yards on the ground five times already in his career including two two-hundred games(one where he set the single game rushing record). Guess how many one-hundred yard games Bush has? One. He's taking too long to learn how to run in the NFL and I'm officially off the bandwagon.

                    The only QB that stands out for me is Joe Flacco and even then I don't consider him by any means to be elite.

                    I do like Matt Ryan's intangibles and I want to hesitantly compare him to Brett Favre.

                      I would object to any DT being labeled a "safe" pick. Dorsey/Ellis may be amazing college players with all the tools, but so many of these highly rated DT's have turned bust that you can't really be sure.

                        No, more Reggie Bush is necessary. Harp on him all you like, but so far he has almost 800 yards of total offense and 6 TD's. Thats not shabby by any means, especially considering the Saints offense, and entire team at that, is horrificly inconsistent and was so out of sync early on.

                              Only until his endorsements run out. He's not a good runningback...don't even get me started
