These things are soooooo dumb. And no way do the Chargers lose the Super Bowl to the Cowboys. Blah. Although picking up Rey would be very nice, he's a total beast.

Why do a mock draft of 2009 when the 2008 draft hasn't yet taken place? Also everything will change during the year.

I hope they are predicting Al Davis' retirement and not something worse. They have Peterson as Al's replacement as "Managing General Partner" not just GM. I guess they assume we pass on McFadden, if so I would take Beanie in a heart beat.

I think that the QB predictions are quite off. I like Curtis Painter, but he is not a first rounder is he? And Graham Harrell is going to get the system QB label just as every other Texas Tech QB before him. (i.e. - Sonny Cumbie, Kliff Kingsbury, and B.J. Symons)

Since the QB Class of 2009 looks relatively weak could we see the top 2 juniors in Matthew Stafford and Tim Tebow make the leap to the NFL as underclassmen?

Also what other QB's have real NFL potential in the class of 2009?

Mocks are so pointless this far in advance... If I remember correctly, we were supposed to be picking top 10 according to alot of people, this year. Just let it play out on the field.

Possibly another CB if Al Harris or Charles Woodson have a big drop off

people really need to take things like this with a grain of salt. Much isn't going on in football right now, so why not make a fun article of some future predictions?

Yeah I was gonna ask could PJ Hill really go that high? I always thought of him as a mid rounder, kind of a poor mans Ron Dayne, referring to Dayne when he was a prospect and not a bust.

I don't know, but it would sure help. I think Rey's a top ten pick personally. Ray Lewis 3. (2 is Willis.)

3 ohio state players in the top 4? Someone's a homer.

And Max Unger is not a first round pick, much less a top 10.

PJ Hill and Graham Harrell are not first rounders.

I'll buy Malcolm Jenkins as a top 3 pick; he's got it all, plus experience, leadership, and all the awards. The others, not so much. I teeter-totter on Beanie Wells.

I could see Jenkins. Wells will be a top ten pick most likely. Lauranitis is harder to place, he could go anywhere between 12 and 40. But Lauranitis #1 is a joke.

I don't like where Pittsburgh is picking, but I'd gladly welcome Michael Oher.

I think his rankings are off (I know it's all speculation), but I like his pick. Though I doubt Unger goes before Oher.

I have to say some questionable picks.

Nobody has forgotten about Jared Gaither. But as has been proven time and time again, counting on low round supplemental draft choices is not the smart thing to do.

04-13-2008, 05:31 PM
Oher would have gone higher than 9 had he come out this year. He is a top3 pick, with easy consideration at the top pick. How we pass on him is kinda ridiculous.

Its not that great of a mock. And the fact that the 08 draft hasnt even happened yet might be stupider. He couldnt wait 2 weeks?

Dude you guys were the only team to lose to my Dolphins last season. Your picking in the top 8 in the draft and you've done nothing to get better.

That means you are not allowed to complain about anyone's predictions on your team. You are worse then the worst. Until you come out next season and prove something on the field, your team sucks.

They guys who should be complaining are the Dolphins fans. Of all the terrible teams the league has seen, a team hasn't repeated with the worst record since the 93-94 Bengals.

For real! The nerve of the man to be creative, and give the casual reader players to be looking out for! I mean, it's not going to be accurate! And we all know Mocks made during the season or so will be waaaaay more accurate than his! Calais Campbell is still a guaranteed Top 10 pick, right? I guess he doesn't understand that Mocks created a month before the Draft or less are the only Mocks which have a chance of being useful or relevant...

Everybody realizes that casual sports fans read FOXsports, ESPN, and other media sites too, and that it's not just fans who know a great deal about it like we do, right? What seems to be pointless to us may actually be very interesting or entertaining to someone who doesn't understand the Draft and how it works. Only natural for someone who's curious to seek new information and opinion. I guarantee that, "Pre-View of the 2009 NFL Draft!" will get more hits on April 13th, 2008 than "Pre-View of the 2008 NFL Draft!" will on ESPN's site. He's definitely going to be wrong on many things, but around to the '09 Draft, will anyone be creating a "LOLz! Tom Marino fails to predict '09 Draft!!!" thread? So who cares? Writers do it every year, and I'll keep reading.


As for his take on the Titans, MLB could be addressed, though his reasoning for it is off. The Titans haven't invested in an elite MLB because of the frequency of our DEF having to be in a Nickel DEF. It's been that way for the past 10 years, and it won't change due to a Playoff loss. But, it could very well be the pick, tho I'd prefer Maualuga. Oh, and nice to see Floyd Reese back in the NFL.

No one could look at the Titans playoff loss and think their defense truly failed them, could they? They need playmakers on offense in a bad way.

I don't think anyone would think that the Titans DEF lost the game for us, but playmakers on offense was the case last year, its the case this year, so I hope it's not an immediate problem next Draft too. It's actually refreshing to see "MIKE costs them in the end" than "Poor receivers cost them in the end." Also, heading into the '07 Draft the Titans had one of the Bottom 5 DEF's in the league, yet heading into the '08 Draft we have one of the Top 5 DEF's in the league. Point is that we can never predict how our own teams will do or how things will turn out, so how can I sit here and criticize him for an article that he obviously did for poots and giggles?

04-13-2008, 07:35 PM
Wheres guys like Crabtree, Sam Bradford, Knowshon Moreno, Granger and Loadholt at? George Selvie should be up there too. Seems like he's missing quite a bit of prospects.

And I think Harrell wont be 1st round, he'll be seen as a system QB. Also, Id take Spiller ahead of James Davis.

TitanHope
04-13-2008, 07:43 PM
Crabtree, Bradford, and Moreno are all sophomores, if I'm not mistaken. They won't be available until '10. As for Loadholt, I have no clue, but he had many mixed reviews, on these boards at least. Dunno who the Granger player is, but I agree with Selvie. George Selvie and Michael Johnson may be the top pass-rushing DE's next season.

Three Ohio State players will not go in the first four picks. Also, Laurinaitis has a 0% chance of going #1 overall. Teams just don't value ILB that much, especially in a 3-4.

I was going to say that about Laurinaitis. A 3-4 ILB at #1? Forget about it.

Jenkins and Wells in the top 4, I can buy. But Laurinaitis is most definitely not the best LB available.

Oh, I didn't know that. Thanks dude. Oh, and I did give the writer credit. I even defended the writer in an earlier post.

But, DJC pointed out that the writer left out some big names, so it led me to believe that they were inelligible, but I stated I could be wrong just incase. That was me again defending the writer by producing a reason to not including notable players. Though, I did agree that Selvie would have been a good choice in the writer's Draft, but didn't say it was wrong not to have him.

I, um, think we're on two different pages... I've been defending Marino.

Would much rather have Alex Boone, Andre Smith, or Michael Oher if we have the top pick. I wouldn't even mind Brian Cushing, that guy is a stud!

I doubt we have the top pick next year though. I think it will be either the Chiefs, Bengals, or the Ravens.

Selvie is still and underclassmen.

Loadholt was overrated on this board because he beat the then overrated Calaias Campbell.

Loadholt is probably the 5-6th best senior next year. 8th-9th best overall right now in my estimation if he doesn't actually play with the desire an Olineman had.

If Loadholt had Gosder Cherilus Nasty Streak, he could've been the #1 Overall OT in this draft.

He's just not concerned and lazy.
