    • The more I see Chris Williams being our pick... the less it makes me think it's actually going to happen.

      I'm going to say right now that Rashard Mendenhall will be the pick.


      Sig by me... Hold the applause.

        That's the conclusion I have come to as well. Although I know many would disagree with the way I have it, I think:

        Round 1

        1) Miami Vernon Gholston
        2) St. Louis Chris Long
        3) Atlanta Jake Long
        4) Oakland Darren McFadden
        5) Kansas City Matt Ryan
        6) NYJ Leodis McKelvin
        7) New England (f/ San Francisco) Derrick Harvey
        8) Baltimore Ryan Clady
        9) Cincinnati Sedrick Ellis
        10) New Orleans Glenn Dorsey
        11) Buffalo Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
        12) Denver Keith Rivers
        13) Carolina Chris Williams
        14) Chicago Rashard Mendenhall
        15) Detroit Jeff Otah

        Angelo would choose the more proven commodity, the local kid, who still fits a position of need, when drafting offensively, which hasn't been a strong point in the past. Plus, it keeps him away from Detroit. He (JA) won't be criticized hugely because in many respects it is a smart pick and more likely to pan out than Otah at left tackle (at least in my mind), but I also wouldn't be surprised by Branden Albert. At the very worst he can be our Alan Faneca, at best he becomes a stud left tackle. Win/win.

        • well i think a lot of people forget that Ron Turner is the one who recruited Mendenhall to Illinois in the first place... that could be a bigger factor than most people might think.

            true but i only think mendenhall is the pick if williams and clady are gone. and thats iffy as i could see otah just as well.

            i wouldnt be too upset with mendenhall, but that just means that we had damn well better find ourselves a RT who can start from day 1 in round 2.

            • I think it'll be Mendenhall or Williams personally. Outside shot of Otah.

                  1st - Chris Williams OT
                  2nd - Chilo Rachal OG
                  3rd - Earl Bennett WR
                  3rd - Matt Forte RB
                  4th - Tyrell Johnson SS
                  5th - Kevin O'Connell QB
                  6th - Taddeus Coleman OT
                  7th - Kerry Brown OG
                  7th - BPA
                  7th - BPA
                  7th - BPA
                  Bennett won't be there, neither will Forte or Johnson

                    • I like Kevin Smith.

                      I wouldn't be picky though. I don't mind any of them, but I would try to grab one with our 2nd 3rd round pick or our 4th(stretch)

                              yeah, if you didnt see it the first round went miserably. all the OTs went and no one took ryan.

                              and you know me...i hate ryan with a passion...

                              lot of people were trying to force me to take him cause "its unrealistic how QBs fall in mocks" and blah blah...

                              so i traded for derek anderson, a young OG and a 3rd rounder.

                              then i traded back into the first to get gosder.

                              and i got jerome simpson.

                              so now its down to smith or choice.....

                              i like that smith is a more powerful runner, i know he could carry the load, i know he would push benson...

                              i like that choice is versatile, a good receiver out of the backfield, some decent upside....

                              what do you think?

                              • I'd go Smith. Better long speed and has some real good upside imo.
