  • 1 Carolina 2-14 .574
    2 Denver 4-12 .516
    3 Buffalo 4-12 .578
    4 Cincinnati 4-12 .582
    5 Arizona 5-11 .465
    6 Cleveland 5-11 .570
    7 San Francisco 6-10 .488
    8 Tennessee 6-10 .508
    9 Dallas 6-10 .512
    10 Washington 6-10 .516

    I can see Carolina, Buffalo, Arizona and SF looking for QBs. Also Washington will be looking to trade up possibly for a QB. Assuming AJ Green also goes in the top 8, that could be 5 offensive guys in the top 8, which means 1 of the 4 guys people have been excited about (Petersen, Prince, Fairley or Dareus) would be available. We also could be in a prime trade down spot as Washington is looking for a QB and the league knows it, so a team could make a trade with us to get ahead of them. All in all, it's not a bad spot we find ourselves in. Useless to speculate until the Combine, but at least we're not Detroit, going from 2nd pick most of the year all the way to #13.

    • D-Unit, we went from what wouldve been 6 with a loss, to 9. It's not a big deal at all.

      We have plenty of options.

          Patrick Peterson ain't gonna be there now. That's a big deal.

          • Better prospects have fallen, or we could trade up.

            And what if he is a collasol bust? you never know.

            9th overall in each round is pretty solid to me. Garrett now at the helm. Romo and dez back. getting rid of dead weight like barber and some of the o-line.

            we are in good shape. Chill my friend. Prince or fairley would be just as nice. Prince might even be the better corner prospect.

            Prince or fairley at 9, rahim moore in the 2nd, best OL in the third, and a a good OL/DL or 2 in free agency, and were right back on top of the NFC.

            Free worked out at LT, Dez is a monster, Sean Lee is a beast too, relax dude, there are some things to smile about.

            The redskins are a joke, the eagles are bleh if our secondary can get it's balls back, and the giants are in shambles and eli looks like he fell off.

            Next season should be fun. chill out.

            • The funniest thing about pick 9 versus pick 6 at this point in the process isn't the first round really imo. Peterson wasn't going to last till 6 and we weren't going to move up to get him more than likely with the price to move up being so high to move into top 3.

              So that said we still have a outside shot at a blue chip prospect....3-5 of those should be in this draft...someone might fall....that said they could go 1-5 and we'd also miss out on them.

              Where this is gonna hurt worse is in the 2nd round. I think we'll see a run on OL talent at the end of the first round and the start of the 2nd. Might be a classic spot where we try to move up. Be interesting to see how this all works out. Value wise at this point in the process I think it's pretty evident.

              DE
              CB/S
              RT/OG

              Should be solid value at 3 need positions in the first three rounds...that is about all you can ask for.

              I can think of plenty of mocks that make me smile with some combination of the three but my biggest question is this.

              What exactly do we do with the CB position. If we go Prince at 9 I'm fine with that but I still stress that our bigger need is at safety and he should play there. He isn't going to time well and if you want to look at similarities from just a few years ago look at Malcolm Jenkins....on the field they are elite at the college level but their games translate to S in the NFL and both of their coaches acknowledged this although draftniks don't tend to say this until after they here some other draftnik say it. Well all this prince talk in the top 5 is funny. Freaks or trench players/qb's go here. He maybe has a shot at top 10 and I'm still not sold on that. He will be there to pick from at 9 I'll put a bet with anyone on this board to back that.

              That said this class is very deep at the CB position and is definitely a strength in my eyes. With our 2nd round pick CB value should be at a premium. My question is what exactly do we do about it. Unless we cut newman which I don't buy with the shaky past year of both Jenkins and Scandrick you can't add another young guy and go with that imo. So now you are drafting a 4th corner when you arguably have other positions where you need starters? That just doesn't make sense. Someone please explain this situation to me. It doesn't make sense and I don't think we should touch it until later unless we can move scandrick for more than a bag of pretzels I guess.

              • I think a lot of us are overlooking outside linebacker in terms of need. Spencer has been below average thus far, if you can't become productive playing opposite Demarcus Ware then there is just no hope for you. We all know the best pass defense is a good pass rush and I don't know why we seem to give Anthony Spencer the benefit of the doubt. I mean we rag on Jenkins an Newman but our pass rush has been flat out bad this season. I don't know the status of Spencer's contract but if I'm Jerry Jones, Anthony Spencer is one of the guys I have to make a tough decision about..

                Let's say Peterson and Fairley are gone. I think Prince is overrated and I believe that his stock will drop well outside the top 10 (Besides, Safety is much for of a problem for us than Corner). I've said it before and I'll say it again, Robert Quinn can take this defense to another level. Worst-case he only plays on passing downs as a rookie and gives teams another threat to worry about. When I watched him play last season he really did remind me of Ware, you notice his elite athleticism right away and he has the nonstop motor to match. Not to mention he's only 19 in the film we have on him.

                • TheFinisher, you are hating on spencer to much. T-New had an awful 2nd year and people wanted his head. It happens. I know it was against the 2nd eagles o-line, but he was dominant yesterday. The entire defense was just bad.

                  Anthony Spencer has played well and is a 1st round pick. He isn't going anywhere. Robert Quinn would be way to much of a luxury at this point.

                  And as for prince, I think he will time in the 4.4s, and he is a CORNERBACK. don't fix what isn't broken.. and yes i think he will be there at 9 as well.

                  • Spencer's in his 4th year, not his 2nd. Big difference.

                    EDIT: Spencer was Wade's hand picked pet cat and always defended him. We will see what happens with the new DC.

                    • In the category of crying over split milk, drafting 9th.

                      Would never have thunk it in September.... disappointing is an understatement. Yeah it could've been worse but when your season is over by Halloween it leaves the bad taste of high expectations pissed away.

                      Carolina & SF looking to restock in major housecleanings with new regimes, Buffalo looking for help everywhere too, Redskins dumping McNabb & looking for a QB.

                      And Fisher looking to get outta town in Nashville after being dissed by omission on a Christmas cd. photo? Wonder if Jerry is his 1st phone call..... amusing to think of Garrett as the default position isn't it?

                        Meh, I was one of Garrett's biggest doubters on here but I think he's done a good enough job to land the gig. I'm fine with him as our HC, I'm more worried about who he brings in under him. Norv Turner's gotta be a name that Jason likes and rumor has it he's on the hot seat in SD. I've also heard rumblings of Paul Chryst as a possible OC. I just wanna get this process over with as soon as possible so we know what we're looking at heading into the offseason.

                          Couldn't agree more. Assuming Spencer is going to play lights out in 2011 like he did for about 8 GAMES in his entire career is not smart. Not sold on him at all.

                            Don't be surprised if John Garrett gets promoted from TE coach to OC.

                            • Good call boss+manning.

                              That is a very high possibility.

                              I really think our offense needs a true slot WR.
