    Why do you hate Nrcirc's draft so much?

      I like Meachum, but Crowder has really no place on the team, we don't draft an o-lineman till the 7th round, and it is a center, we don't adress FS, Wendling has no chance of being there.

      To be honest, they are all just average players. We need some sparks.

        Thanks. Good answer. I like Meachum, and I'd take him if Nelson's gone. I agree with you about Crowder, plus the second round would be way too high for him in my opinion. I think Wendling will be a good player, but he's not the pure cover safety we need.

          Thanks. I would like an o-lineman way before that, and no OLBs in this draft, we already have enough.

          If you look at Canty and Crowder, besides Canty being a little taller, they look like clones to me. The way they play, and the way the look, literally. They look like twins to me.

                    I'm gonna start this out with Wade Phillips self-proclaimed draft strategy.
                    Well most of my philosophy is just 'get me some good players and we'll fit them in.' If we can get some top players, good athletes, smart, good character people, that's what we're looking for. We'll fit them into whatever system we have. We'll change our system if we have to, to get good players and utilize them. It's not that complicated since they've been running the 3-4 and running a lot of the same offense. It'll be similar type people they're looking for, so I think that will help.
                    1- Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno State
                    • Reach right? I'm buying into drafting on measurables now. Someone might say but he didn't even play good this year..and was consistantly beat deep. I would say ya but most of those things are coachable. The first round to me is to find yourself a freak...something that you can't find outside of round one. McCauley owned the field last year...you know he has the ability...now for w/e reason his production falled off...maybe it was pressure by the DL...maybe it was the loss of Marshall..either way we've seen this kid perform at a high level. And t 6-foot-1, 198 pounds and running in the high 4.3s, McCauley has uncoachable tools. He makes it look easy at times. He is also durable...hasn't missed a single game in his collegiate career. He has the ability to run stride for stride with anyone in the league...it's the technique that was hindering him this year. Hell his main problem was running with the wr...rather then getting his head turned around. That is coachable. McCauley does have good zone awareness...he excels playing on the line of scrimmage redirecting the WR. You also have to love his effortless hip swivel...he can break on the ball when it is there...and has the long arms/jumping ability to make up for a mistake. He is also a great open field tackler...which is good...since it shows he's not afraid to make the hit. Okay I think that I have made my point on why...so now you ask where does he play? Well looks to me like a Dime Back year one...unless he exceeds expectations. But McCauley can play on all special teams units...he is a former HS running back and returner...he might not have top lateral quickness...but he is shifty enough to be a returner. This is something that I didn't know about him before...that I recently just turned up.
                    2- Doug Free, OT, Northern Illinois
                    • What is one thing I look for when drafting a player outside of the first round? Smarts, Free is exceptional in that area. He was a semifinalist for the National Football Foundation's Draddy Award, honoring combined academic success, football performance and exemplary community service, and received "Halfway All-American" recognition by CBS SportsLine.com at the season's midpoint. He also held a 3.24gpa as an Industrial Technology major...which is something you don't normally see for a player of this caliber. Once again....some people may say reach...but you can quote me in saying...he won't be around for us when our 3rd round pick comes. Sure some will once again say...but he didn't play well this year...but the thing is he struggled to stay healthy all year. He was bothered by a groin pull in fall camp, and then suffered a right foot stress fracture when his leg was stepped on in the season opener vs. Ohio State. He played in the next two games before telling trainers of the injury, and the fracture was then treated. I'm gonna end this pick by quoting his head coach.
                      Joe Novak - "No question, Doug has the talent to play on Sundays. Knock on wood, I believe he's going to be a first-round draft pick. Doug Free's a lot better athlete than Ryan Diem. (Free) can run! You just don't see many offensive linemen that can run at that size like he can. What's impressive is he'll sit back in pass protection and then we'll throw the ball down the field and he'll run down field and block a safety. I mean, get downfield! You just don't see kids who can do that. He's special. Our kids call him 'Doug Freak' because he runs so well."
                    3- Dan Bazuin, DE/OLB, Western Michigan
                    • Like I said earlier...I love a player with smarts...so why not draft another academic all american. He was a marketing major with a 3.39 grade-point average, Bazuin was the only student-athlete from the Mid-American Conference to be named to the 2006 Academic All-America football team. Just like Free he was also a national semifinalist for the Draddy Trophy. Now lets get onto the on-the-field production. Bazuin holds the school career records for tackles for loss (60) and sacks (33) and single-season records for tackles for loss (26 1/2) and sacks (16). His 16 sacks in 2005 tied what was then a MAC single-season record. He ranks eighth in MAC history in tackles for loss and fourth in sacks. In high school he was a three sport athlete in football, basketball, and track. So we know he is athletic. Bazuin started every game he played in (47) at Central Michigan, including 38 consecutive at one point. He recorded 261 tackles (132 solos) as he set school career-records with 35 1/2 sacks for minus-268 yards, 63 1/2 stops for losses of 354 yards and 10 forced fumbles. He added seven quarterback pressures with six fumble recoveries, including one that he returned for a touchdown. He deflected nine passes and blocked four kicks.
                    4- Antonio Johnson, NT, Mississippi State
                    • This is a pick a absolutely love. Johnson really hasn't played much football. He has been around it...but it seems to have taken him awhile to really take it to the next level. In 22 games at Mississippi State, Johnson started five times. He recorded 36 tackles (16 solos) with 2.5 sacks for minus-10 yards, seven stops for losses totaling 20 yards and one quarterback pressure. He recovered two fumbles and blocked a kick. Some people maybe worried about his weight since he is only at about 307 but he has a frame that can carry at least another 15 pounds with no loss in quickness. I could go on and on about him and what he brings to the table. But I'll just say he is a relentless player who has good hands but just needs to be coached up a bit and add some bulk to his frame.
                    5- Brandon Myles, WR, West Virginia
                    • Unfortunately I don't have a huge background on this guy. But I'll just say that I fell in love with him at the combine. He has great quickness in and out of his breaks. He can beat the jam off the line of scrimmage. Is a natural hands catcher...very rarely will you see the ball get into his body. He is one of the top snubs not to go to the combine...had he been there I have a feeling he could have been a day one pick...but luckily for us he is around later. He has above average lateral quickness...and would be another addition in the return game. I really like this kid as a future replacement for Terry Glenn.
                    6- Nathan Bennett, OG, Clemson
                    • Decent size and somewhat of a raw prospect...developmental guy at this point.
                    6- Jay Richardson, DE, Ohio State
                    • About the right size for a 3-4 DE...don't have much on him...but might be better suited for a 3-4 rather then the 4-3 he was forced to play at OSU.
                    7- Drew Tate, QB, Iowa
                    • This might just be the pick of the draft. This guy is a player. Great improviser, great smarts, played at a high level all his collegiate career. I honestly think he would be a great backup to Tony Romo for many years. They have similar playing styles...so you don't have to worry about your offense adjusting to a new QB...if for some reason Romo did go down. His main knock is size...but like many people know...it's not all about the size...it's about finding the throwing lanes. I really love this pick and no one will tell me otherwise :P

                    So there you have it....my draft. Well some might say I reached...but that is honestly how I would draft at this point. Get myself a freak early...smart players throughout the draft...get myself some projects on day 2...and address depth in a couple positions.

                      Good picks. But I'm still not sold on CB in the 1st idea everybody has been giving. Doug Free pick I do really like. But the last 3 picks I especially like, Richardson, Bennett and Tate are guys I wouldn't mind having on the team.

                        Well I'm not so much sold on CB...I think you can get one anywhere on the first day. I just went with the best talent available. I mean obviously a guy like Carriker or Ginn or another freak of nature would be nice...but we just aren't in position to land guys like that. Gonna have to dig a bit.

                          If we go WR I want a top WR. We have 3 late round/udfa wrs, we don't need another. I want us to go WR in round 1 or 2 to develop a true number one under TO and Glenn. Miles, Hurd, Crayton.. they are great number 3 guys, they maybe coul turn in good number 2, but they can't be your primary target. TO and Glenn are over 32, this draft is fill with great receveirs, so we are in perfect position to pick a guy for the future and let him learn under our wideouts. Dwayne Bowe, Craig Davis Sidney Rice or Jason Hill are my choice.
                          The other pick in the first two round should be CB or S. In the third round I want an OG or T.

                            The only WR I would like to spend a first day pick on would be Allison. #1 WR written all over him. Speed, hands, decent size, and route running needs improving but that's coachable. That would be my choice.

                              I like McCauley as well thule. He is a freak. And he is coachable, but we don't need a CB!!!

                              I like the Doug Free pick.

                                Thule I really like what you said about size and speed on CB, but somehow drafting McCauley is making me feel Pete Hunter is coming back to Dallas. I world rather use 6th to draft Countney Brown for the same reason. Also, I aganst use the first two rounds to draft any CBs, because value is not their and most of them are under 6 feets.
