        It's not just you. IDK what it's good for, maybe mosh pits or **** like that.

        I make highlights at school and it just pisses me of when people don't match the song with the video, and just stick some stupid **** music.

        • To be clear, I'd love a player like Aaron Maybin but I doubt he is available when we pick.

          • I still have a hard time getting excited about a linebacker in the first round this year. To me all of the USC guys have questions AND as a general principal, 4 3 teams can find good OLBs in the later rounds.
            Individually...

            Cushing- Dont know how he would fit, didnt play on 3rd downs much in 2008 and therefore you have to question his coverage skills. He would be paired with Peterson and when you are running a cover 2 i would worry a bit our OLB's ability to drop back in coverage. Upside?

            Maulaga- Again his coverage skills worry me, and would be paired with Peterson, would smack you in the head but could they cover you? Also would need to change position - risky? And some character concerns?

            Mathews -Raw, not much experience. Fits better than the other two. BUT is OLB our biggest need? Nicolas and Peterson would be fine IMO. What makes him better than Barwin?


            In saying that though Cushing and Mathews are probably the surest things of the 1st round.

            AND We were happy with the TE to be taken in the first round proir to this, with the other needs to be addressed after, the same logic would apply here if an OLB is taken in round 1. Not my favourite option though

            We could taken a guy like Jason Williams in round 3 or 4. Crazy Upside, perfect fit at WLB to learn from an excellent player like Peterson.

            Here is my wishlist (in order)

            1. Everette Brown - Safer pick than Maybin, more immeadiate impact as a passrusher, more polished, EXACTLY what we need at DE. OLB in our 3/4 packages.
            2. Aaron Maybin - More upside than Brown, amazing first step. Great atheletism
            3. Trade Down (mid 30s) - Barwin, English, Delmas - All high character high motor guys filling a big need and netting us more picks

            Each of those guys are high character high motor players at need positions.

            IMO the abolsulte lowest we should wait forr a rushing DE is #55 with Sidbury/Johnson/Kruger

            So now we need to think about 1. Picking where we are 2.Trading down 3. Some crazy Dorsey trade.

            Man, all that reading up on Pettigrew for nothing!

              Cushing doesn't lack upside. He's 6'3" 243 with excellent strength for the position (although Rey Rey plays stronger than him) and runs a 4.7.

              Cushing has definite upside, it's just that his body probably doesn't have a ton of room to grow. But he does have a lot of room to improve in his agility and hip movement.

              • Predictions? I don't think the Dorsey thing happens. Too good to be true. I'm saying with the 24th pick in the NFL Draft, we will take Everette Brown.

                  I will cry tears of joy.

                  With the #55 pick, im hoping for Louis Delmas, Reshad Johnson, Patrick Chung, or William Moore. Most likely at least one will be there.

                  • Also, I'd like to mention, that if there's going to be a Dorsey deal, I don't think it will happen until pick 24. If I really wanted to get this done as the Chiefs... I'd have the deal in place and if I see someone I want at 24, pull the trigger.

                    Comment


                    • Exactly - we really need to hope that a great 3-4 prospect is there for them, someone like ReyRey.

                      But I agree, the Dorsey deal is unlikely. If TD can somehow pull this off, we'd really be set.

                      I quite like Scott's mock this morning:

                      Ziggy - if we can't get Dorsey, I'm ok with this. Great character, will fit in well. A little undersized, but is taller than Jerry, and stout enough against the run. Not a true NT, but big enough to be paired with Lewis against the run and quick enough to be paired with Babs against the pass. Babs, Hood, Lewis, and Moorehead would be a pretty good DT rotation. Still, I'd rather have Dorsey...

                      2. Jairus Byrd - I LOVE this pick. Would be great as either a corner or safety in the cover2. Tough, great intangibles, and top notch instincts. Incidentally, if we don't move in the 1st, I can see us trading up a bit in the 2nd using a 4th and 5th or something like that...

                      3. Beckwith - not keen. Profiles mainly as MLB backup. There are plenty of better OLB options here, and Scott also has some very good secondary players, like DJ Moore, on the board at this point.

                        • So here it is, an hour away. I cant wait.

                          Scotts new mock is ok but i really want us to address DE earlier than that. The other players around the Hood pick really interests me.

                          Brown, English, Barwin, Hood ALL available at #24 and would likely be still available.

                          We need to hope DHB is on the board at our pick, id love to work a sneaky trade with the G-Men (29th) and still get one of Brown, English, Barwin, Hood

                          Taking Everette Brown at any stage would make my day.
