Hell NO!

Sorry, don't mean to sound blunt, but he's one of the most overrated receivers imo. He's not a good blocker and he's slow. He's not that great of a WR period... he just gets a lot of recognition for playing on ND and with Quinn. He's not horrible, but he's not a WR you want to pick up in the first round. He's gonna be someone like that Browns' WR (Jarikevicious [sp?]) at BEST.

If we get a RB, I petition for Bush over Lynch. Bush is a better RB when healthy and he will slip b/c he hasn't played this year. Also, Lynch I feel is a big beneficiary of Cal's offense. Look at the past two top picks from that school.... Aaron Rodgers and JJ Arrington... Lynch is better than Arrington but I still don't think he is THAT great.

Antonio Pittman will likely come out early.
http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/bowls0...t&lid=tab2pos1
Small but fast (first day)

I am also interested in Tony Hunt for a big bruising back.
http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player...layerId=152310
Not fast but efficient, hits the hole and falls forward (first day)

As we know Shanahan has never taken a RB in 1st round. Last year he stated that if he had not been able to draft up for Cutler, he would have taken Lawrence Maroney at the 15 spot (obviously a kid with a great future in the NFL that ran in a zone blocking scheme at Minn.). While we sit here and speculate we all saw that with the game on the line, or even in the 4th, Tatum was not in the lineup. That means that Shanahan has no faith in him! That means that unless you think he is going to go with Mike Bell as an opening day starter next year, something will be done. I still like Tatum as a change of pace back in the 2nd half. But that is all I see him as on this team. Think trade or draft but something has to happen here judging by Shanahan. Remember in the SF game we were inside the 5 with 1st and goal 3 times. That will eat at Shanahan this offseason.

I would take Bush in a heartbeat over Lynch (same speed 35 lbs of size to take the wear of a #1 in our system.

J. Wilson will rise to an early 2nd talent, but i think if tdenver sees him there with that 3rd pick we will grab him, mayube even 2nd

plus he played with foxworth which cant hurt

i hate to say this is a replacement for darrent williams, because it isnt. i think that regardless of his death we would look at a cb. Wilson would also be a threat in situational dime packages as a pass rush

and yet he's still a much more polished player than ginn is. i'll take a top notch route runner at WR over a guy who really, is just fast, any day of the week. *shrug* then again, i still hate the idea of a first round wr.

i don't like it. atlanta's offensive line hasn't exactly been good lately, and gibbs schemes encourage a lack of pass blocking skill.

still if a talent like wilson falls that far, you have to at least take a glance in his direction. You are right, we definatly have bigger needs on the line, and CB isnt a priority, but i think we can afford to use a first day pic to grab a player of his quality if he by chance fell that far. I would also say the same thing about a great linebacker like timmons, or everett, because even though its clearly our best position, depth never hurt. i guess im a fan of depth. me, i really care the most if wether or not we get a good lineman (OT or DT)

i just don't believe that this team is in a position to spend first day picks on depth. we have too many glaring needs to draft solely with BPA in mind.

actually, let me be more clear: barring major FA acquisitions, i don't believe this team is in any position to spend high draft picks on depth. we need starting quality players at too many positions.

i'm already drunk (no, not seriously). :D

now, just don't promote from within. go hire someone who's demonstrated that the prevent defense is NOT a part of his playbook.

i see absolutely no reason for that pick given that the talent level, as far as i've seen, isn't even that high. then again, has scott gotten a single denver pick right in... ever?

true story:

further, scott has yet to correctly identify a denver first round pick. so whatever, let him give us a corner.

Just curious because I have been known to be out of the loop. But off the top of my head (which isn't very accurate this late, but I'm too lazy to check) I would think that you guys need at least a FS and a nickelback if Foxworth is expected to take Williams' place as starting CB oppposite Bailey. Again, this is just thinking off the top of my head, but I can't think of anyone else past Bailey and Foxworth at CB and I can't think of an in-house replacement for Lynch.

Karl Paymah (drafted in the same class) would likely assume the nickel spot. Curome Cox is looking like Lynch's current heir apparent. safety is probably a need, but given the other holes, i just don't see it as a first round problem unless the first twenty picks are all defensive linemen and running backs.

Default Quick question:

Weren't we supposed to get Redskins' first round choice along with their third for Lelie? My understanding was if Washington finished worse than us, which is the case, we were supposed to swap first round pick with their's. Does anyone know what happened? :shock:
