  • ESPN 2007 NFL Re-Draft

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/column...t&lid=tab1pos2

    Don't know if anyone caught this, but looking at how things might change if the slate were wiped clean and the NFL held a re-draft today.

    Russell still the #1 for Oakland

    McShay thinks taking CJ is still the right move for us (not AP like some others in the media think).

    But the similarities end there. He's got AP goin to cleveland. Can you guys imagine, that passing offense + the NFL's leading rusher???? How sick would that have been??????

    But more on us, in the 2nd round (43rd), instead of Stanton, he thinks that Trent edwards would've been the better pick (so do I).

    Instead of IAF (58th), he has us taking McCauley, and by the final 2nd round pick where we had selected Alexander, he has us taking Martrez Milner with the 61st pick (TE) as Alexander has already gone to the Rams at 52.

    Well, who knows if Cleveland would have the offense that they have without Joe Thomas.. and I agree, Trent Edwards would've been a much, much better pick than Stanton..

      Trent Edwards does look a lot better. But really we haven't seen Stanton play, so I'm holding out on judging him.

        We don't know that yet. Considering how deep Martz's offense is, I'd rather have our rookie QB on the bench anyway.

        The coaches love Stanton, so I'm ready to give him a chance.

        (I'd much rather have IAF/Alexander than McCauley/Milner... especially with how our defense has played this year.)

            I love CJ, but I'd probably rather have Joe Thomas. Except for the first game, Thomas has been excellent. Put him at LT and move Backus over to RT (where he'd probably be more effective) and our run blocking and pass blocking improve. We'd still have Roy Williams, Mike Furrey, and Shaun McDonald as our receivers and likely a running game that is better than it is now.

              I think I'd probably prefer Thomas as well. He's been a stud so far(outside of the first game). Hell, Cleveland even moves him over to the right side sometimes when they want to run that way. I'm not that big on the Milner pick, since as has been stated, I don't think we use the TE enough to justify it anyway.

                True... but, imagine what CJ will be like when he actually understands the offense.

                Roy and CJ... to completely dominant WRs... McD and Furrey in the slot. Just crazy.

                  Hindsight is 20/20, but hindsight after 8 weeks is more like 20/60.

                    Ugh...why don't people realize how good Thomas has been this year? He means too much to the team to take AD over him.

                      I've been thinking that myself. Joe Thomas has been amazing, and even without a truly great running game, the Browns have still had an explosive offense. Without Thomas and with AD, yes the running game would likely be better because of a better back(but the run blocking would have been worse. Who would have been playing LT for the Browns anyway?) but I can't see the passing game being nearly as good simply because of the loss of a guy that's been great in protection. Personally, if I'm saying I'd like to have Thomas, I can't imagine the Browns passing on him.

                      We've also got to think, one reason AD slid a bit was because of injury concerns. Yes, he hasn't been hurt, but after half a season, I don't think you can dismiss those concerns just yet. He was relatively healthy his freshman year in college as well.

                        Exactly, I've seen so many people say that they should pick AD since paired with the passing game it'd be amazing. First of all, he would have no place to run. Shaffer at LT is not good at all. And 2nd, that passing game is also not the same. Thomas apparantly hasn't given up a sack all year (I thought I remembered him giving one up to the Steelers, but w/e), and you can bet whoever played LT instead of him would give up more than 0.

                          Well, how does Tony Ugoh sound, instead of Brady Quinn? Thats what it was in the re-draft.

                            CJ is great. No doubt about it.

                            It's hard to say now that we should have taken Thomas though. No one here could have expected Shaun McDonald to be such a good contributor. Nor did we expect Backus to struggle so much.

                              In my opinion the Lions really screwed up once again by drafting a wide receiver in the first round. As stated Joe Thomas and AD are already studs in the league, and sure CJ has been hurt but still, any WR can succeed in Martz's offense. As evidence by Shaun McDonald who always had success in his system. You just need a lot of speed guys to run Martz's system. The Lions should of taken Thomas and signed someone like Kevin Curtis is the offseason.
