D.Hightower.

C.Jones fills the elephant role we've needed for so long BUT DH can play every LB position in the 34 and put his hands in the dirt and play end in nickel.
That's crazy versatility. Can't wait to see BB use it all.

I'm torn between Dont'a Hightower and Chandler Jones. I honestly think it's a tie for me.

If he gets that surgery to remove his head from his rectum, Alfonzo Dennard could be my favorite due to him going in the 7th round but having 2nd round talent.

Miles Burris from SDSU, this kid is very underrated and is a great atlete that can really rush the passer.

Also really like Juron Criner from Arizona in the 5th, great fit at WR and will be a good red zone target for Palmer this year.

It'll definitely be interesting to see what his presence on the field does, should be a little easier for receivers to create separation.

Value wise I thought Antonio Allen was a nice pick in the 7th. Think he fits what Rex likes out of safeties and he could get some sub package work playing in the box some and play specials early. If he gets comfortable in coverage playing off the line of scrimmage maybe he ends up being more, seems to have some raw aptitude for coverage and is obviously comfortable filling aginst the run. Jets certainly don't have a ton at safety beyond Landry and I'm sure he's going to get injured at some point this season.

You learn something every day. Not many Colts fans around in the UK that I know of, makes me sad heading to Wembley and seeing like three Colts fans all day, I feel like I need to hug my brethren when I see them there!

But really I just started watching around the time Manning and Marvin Harrison were looking amazing and decided to stick with them.

Him or David Wilson. If our OL can be just solid to good at run blocking, I think our backs could go apeshit on the NFL. All 3 are tough runners that don't go down to the first tackler, all 3 can take it to the house and all 3 provide slightly different things, Scott the north/south speed and power, wilson the explosiveness in the passing game and Bradshaw the down to down all around ability and craftiness. Love both of those picks for us.

Nick Perry. Barring a tier-one player inexplicably dropping, Perry was the guy that I wanted for the Packers. I didn't think he'd be there at their pick, and when was, I was thrilled.

He was my favorite pass rusher in the draft, and I'm incredibly happy with the pick.

Claiborne is the obvious answer for Dallas, but I like the Danny Coale pick in the 5th. Miles and Dez are going to do their thing on the outside but we really have a need in the slot and I think Coale should have a chance to grab the job.

And then there's the fact that plenty of VaTech/Redskin homers are going to be sick that he's a Cowboy lol, Coale was a fan favorite.

Its hard to pick a favorite for the Colts. They had many. Best value may be NT Josh Chapman in the 5th. If he is cleared medically, he will be a steal since he could end up being the best NT in this class. I see him as a Casey Hampton type NT.

But I do love the Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen picks at TE and TY Hilton at WR. This gives us TEs similar to what NE offers, and we also have a Desean Jackson type of weapon at WR.

I think Toon can be that possession receiver opposite Colston that we've been missing. That means Moore will operate in the slot which is his more natural position. It also means Devery becomes the vertical speed threat at the 4th WR which better fits his skill set.

True though I'd argue that we didn't really have one to begin with...a reliable one anyway. We've attempted to throw plenty of deep bombs to Hester and he just doesn't have the feel required to get under it and catch it over the shoulder in stride.

And Knox pretty much just ran comeback routes. For every one he caught running away from the LOS, he caught at least 10 coming back towards it.

Plus...with our o-line...setting up something deep just couldn't happen. Better to have some big outlets anyway.

Yeah, I'd still like to see a legit seam stretcher on that offense though. You can't survive on 8 yard passes all game long. You need some explosion.

Well, in the last couple years we managed to go 11-5 and 7-3 while Cutler was healthy without having explosion OR consistent ability to complete those 8 yard passes.

Having one instead of neither is definitely an improvement.

I watched a lot of Wisconsin games, and I just don't see it in Toon. I think he's a #4 WR in the NFL. It was crazy when he was talked about as a potential first/early second. In the 4th round it was a fine pick, but I don't expect too much from him.

Other than Richardson, I just can't get settled down when thinking about picking Billy Winn in round 6. I don't know why he fell, I thought he would be a 3rd round pick as a DT/DE 'tweener........but I feel like he'll be an impact player that reminds me of 2008 when we took DT Ahtyba Rubin in round 6 - they both have that same tenacity and pedigree that will make them late round steals at the position.

Which is exactly how he'll be utilized in our offense...not a lot of pressure for him and hopefully he should be able to win matchups against the opposing teams 4th CB and get open for Brees. If there's one team to not bet against with late round picks, it's the Saints.

Jerel Worthy for the Packers.

Nick Perry is close behind and will get more acclaim and stats.. but I stand by this assertion, which I've had since early in the draft process;

If you were to design the perfect 3-4 DE/DT for our primary defensive alignment (which is effectively a 2-4-5) it would be Jerel Worthy.
Cat-like quickness combined with big size and strength. His job will be to penetrate double teams and wreak havoc, which I felt was by far his biggest strength in college. His weakness was getting locked up in blocks in college but as long as his threat draws a double team it's still a win.

Should have been a top 20 pick, absolute crazy value where we got him.

themaninblack
04-30-2012, 03:12 AM
Really hard for me to pick a favorite as I love almost every single pick but I'm gonna go with Devon Still. IDK how he fell that far but I think we got one of the best DTs in this class at great value. Would take him over Worthy in a heartbeat any day of the week.

The best thing about it is that he's probably not gonna be counted on right away and will get to develop whilst playing in a rotation with Domata Peko, Geno Atkins, Pat Sims, and Brandon Thompson(another flat out STEAL). I think he's gonna have a huge chip on his shoulder from teams passing on him and will help make our interior DL one of the most formidable in the league in the coming years.

My HM would have to be my homer UGA pick in Orson Charles(Although I was really stoked with the Sanu pick as well). Him paired alongside Jermaine Gresham, who IMO is due for a huge breakout, is going to be sick and once again we don't even necessarily need him to step in right away. Having Donald Lee on the roster will be a big help for him while he develops his blocking and his presence in the passing game should allow him to see the field early and often. His DUI incident may be a blessing in disguise for this team as I think he's a good kid who made a mistake. I don't expect any off the field problems for him in the future.

If Knox and Hester are lmao-worthy, why are you hinting that we've somehow lost a deep threat? They were our receivers.

To answer the question, I didn't particularly like any of our picks. Didn't particularly dislike any, either. McClellin is probably my favorite because I think he fits what Lovie wants on the weak side just as well as he would have fit a 3-4. I think he'll do exactly what we've been needing out of that spot.

Courtney Upshaw was one of my dream picks for the Ravens, so naturally I'll say him. Beyond that, I really love the Asa Jackson pick. I think he's got starter potential down the road and you can never have too many good, young CBs. I'd groom him to take over the nickel role and keep Ladarius Webb and Jimmy Smith on the outsides. Really nice looking CB group.

I loved Tampa's draft. I'm obviously a big Schiano fan, and I love his draft. I personally do not view Barron as a guy who is worthy of a top 10 pick, but overall the identity of their draft screams physicality, and that's what Schiano wants to do, he wants to build a physical team. I think the Bucs are going to do very well under him, and I really like the direction they're going in.

BeerBaron
04-30-2012, 10:30 AM
Yeah, the Bucs did well for themselves.

As you said, I don't view Barron as a top 10 talent, but with the weakness of the safety position in the league right now and how big of a need it was for them, it was worth the slight reach. I don't know if he'll ever be an elite playmaker, but solid safety play puts you in the upper tier of teams right now.

Martin is like a slightly lesser Ray Rice...good all around player. They avoid my ire of taking a RB in the first round since it was very late in the round.

bigbluedefense
04-30-2012, 10:36 AM
Barron is a guy who does everything well but nothing great. He's not going to be a ballhawk back there, but a solid SS who can stuff the run, play in the box, cover TEs in man, and play underneath Cover 3. To me, that's a late 1st round guy, but the demand for safety has really pushed his stock way high.

He'll bring physicality and intellligence to that Bucs defense. It's not a terrible pick.

Barron's just so fn underrated amongst fans...Guy was the best player in the best defense in the nation, and Kirkpatrick and Jackson owe him something for helping cover their flaws and making them 1sts. My favorite safety prospect in years....by years I mean two years. Think he's a decade starter and a consistent All Pro...extremely high on this player.

*shrug* I think Kirkpatrick ends up the better safety on the NFL level. That kid reminds me so damn much of Antrel Rolle that its eery. Could be one of those guys that can just do it all as a safety, man up slot guys and TEs, come up and stop the run, ballhawk and play deep. Barron makes Tampa more physical and will make some big plays, but I think that man is going to get taken advantage off deep down the field by Brees and Cam for years.

Eh...the Bengals need young corners so for them I'd agree, but in general? I think with the way teams are utilizing TEs and slot guys, versatile safeties are becoming hugely important and guys with that type of ability are almost as rare as awesome corners. How many teams in the NFL have a safety that won't get pushed around, can play deep, can step up and wash out TEs and slot guys one on one and can ballhawk? You're looking at Eric Berry, Earl Thomas, Antrel Rolle and not many others that are that good at man'ing up on those inside weapons while still excelling at all of the other things a good safety needs to do.

Yeah, I really love what they've been doing. Their going to be amazing in the trenches, have some great weapons offensively, can get after the passer, have a creative and aggressive DC, as long as Tampon keeps surpassing expectations, that team can bring Cincinnatti home a superbowl title.

Edit: maybe Tampa, a team that usually dorks it up, did very well this draft also.

The Bengals & as much as it pains me to say it the Eagles had the best 2 drafts that come to mind immediately.

I can think of a good 3-4 Eagles picks that David Stern would have blocked for "competitive balance" reasons.

The Eagles grabbed a lot of guys I like, but still didn't really round out the team. They're still a team that needs Vick to stay healthy and connect early against good teams so that they can attack defensively and not get run over. Good draft but at some point the Eagles need to figure out how to do offense when they're not scoring 30+ yard TDs and how to defend the run.

Like Rolle, I think they'd be foolish not to try him at corner first. That seems to be the reason he was drafted.

And luckily (I guess luckily?) for the Bengals, they could use help at either spot.

Yeah at least Rolle was allowed to bomb at CB...Rolle also has 20 pounds on Kirkpatrick.

Yeah, the Bucs did well for themselves.

As you said, I don't view Barron as a top 10 talent, but with the weakness of the safety position in the league right now and how big of a need it was for them, it was worth the slight reach. I don't know if he'll ever be an elite playmaker, but solid safety play puts you in the upper tier of teams right now.

Martin is like a slightly lesser Ray Rice...good all around player. They avoid my ire of taking a RB in the first round since it was very late in the round.

I don't understand why the general sentiment is that the Bucs had such a great draft. They passed up the chance to draft an elite corner to trade down for a non elite safety, and then basically used the pick they got to trade back up for a running back. They probably could have taken Claiborne and still picked Martin or David Wilson in the second. I like the Lavonte David pick a lot, but the rest of the draft was meh. Maybe Barron will be the better player in the long run, but I can't condone passing on Claiborne.

It seems that everyone around here is happy with their draft. Strange to see that.

I'm probably the most excited about Chandler Jones but Dont'a Hightower is the most logical fit in New England's defense. Landing Alfonzo Dennard in the seventh round was nice as well, especially after some questionable moves prior to that.

Josh Robinson, no idea why. Just a good feeling. Here's hoping for not another Marcus McCauley.

Miles Burris from SDSU, this kid is very underrated and is a great atlete that can really rush the passer.

Also really like Juron Criner from Arizona in the 5th, great fit at WR and will be a good red zone target for Palmer this year.

I liked him a lot, wanted the Titans to get him on day 3.

As a player, I like Kendall Wright for the Titans a lot. But as far as what I think is more of a need pick, I love Mike Martin.

I liked that pick as well. If I remember correctly he had the time three-cone time among defensive backs at the Combine.

I think people are just trying to find ways to defend their teams draftnrather than liking it.

Have to go Kalil... for the first time since I've been following I feel like we are heading into the season with something better than "Liability" at LT which is a really nice feeling.

On top of that I didn't particularly like any of the other picks other than Childs. Hopefully Smith and Robinson work out but can't say I was a massive fan of either of them. After that we drafted a whole bunch of guys that are just the same as other players we already have and we drafted a K and a FB when we have needs at just about every position on the roster... those are the definition of luxury picks.

I also felt we were far too conservative. When you need starters at most positions I think you need to aim a bit bigger than ST role players...

*shrug* I think Kirkpatrick ends up the better safety on the NFL level. That kid reminds me so damn much of Antrel Rolle that its eery. Could be one of those guys that can just do it all as a safety, man up slot guys and TEs, come up and stop the run, ballhawk and play deep. Barron makes Tampa more physical and will make some big plays, but I think that man is going to get taken advantage off deep down the field by Brees and Cam for years.

FWIW I don't see him moving to Safety at all but he does have some versatility to move around with the way we use our DBs. He's just rail thin and too small to play safety. I think the question marks about his speed are undue and he will do fine covering pretty much whomever gets thrown at him. If anything he reminds me of a young Nate Clements with the way he can attack the ball carrier. He's got more athleticism than Nate does though.

Other then RG3 obviously, it would have to be Alfred Morris the RB from FAU. Dude grew up a Skins fan and is perfect for ZBS running. A one cut and go back with a very physical style. Doesn't have elite speed but has the ability to pull away in the open field. A perfect compliment to Helu. Shanny always gets production out of mid to late round RBs.

Claiborne is the obvious answer for Dallas, but I like the Danny Coale pick in the 5th. Miles and Dez are going to do their thing on the outside but we really have a need in the slot and I think Coale should have a chance to grab the job.

And then there's the fact that plenty of VaTech/Redskin homers are going to be sick that he's a Cowboy lol, Coale was a fan favorite.

The amount of sick Cowboy fans over RG3 VASTLY outweighs the handful of Coale fans lol

Mohamed Sanu. I think he is a perfect match to go along with AJ.

Yeah, I'm thinking either Sanu or Orson Charles.

Toss up between claiborne and the safety from directional Washington that will be cut 20 minutes into camp...

Actually the safety from directional Washington is pretty good. He's way better then anything the Boys have right now.

Definitely Randle for the Giants, would have been happy if we took him in the first.
