It's me, ATL and the third person is Dunagan.

I wish we could snab Haynesworth, and we have a pretty good case to why he would want to play for us but the competition for him is brutal. He'll get at least $20 mill a year.

I like Ziggy since im a big Mizzou fan.... but I think a safety earlier is more important, especially now that we have the knowledge Milloy isnt coming back

We initially were gonna select Louis Delmas at #24, then the saints got him before we could. So we traded down to #32 and we didn't feel like reaching for a SS there especially because there are some pretty good ones left, since the depth at safety is great. At #55, Ron Brace was gone and since NT is a huge issue we decided to go with the best DT available and that was Ziggy Hood. At #75, we felt like Tyrone McKenize is just too good to pass up, we were really gonna go with Marcus Freeman but he just selected just before we picked. At #106, Chip Vaughn was our #1 target but he got selected 2 picks ahead of us and we settled with Emanuel Cook. He could be a second rounder with a good combine, i really like him. Remember, we still have Thomas DeCoud who could very well be the starter next year.

Ziggy Hood is a Babineaux clone. why did you get him? he's a pure UT, and I doubt he can play NT.

After Brace was selected, we really didn't have many options, so we took the best DT available.

Also Ziggy is near 310 Lbs, so he is quite a bit bigger than Babs. He isnt a nose tackle but I do feel he can get into the backfield and take some pressure off of Abe.

Jonathan Babineux is listed at 284lbs, so they're not exactly clones.

in terms of how they play, they are clones Bos.
and at the combine he weighed in at 300 exactly. not 310. he's 300. he's not a damn NT either. why take a UT when we have 2 guys already in Babineaux and Moorehead. this could have waited for a guy like Sammie Lee Hill or Terrence Taylor. or hell, Fili moala is a great fit for a 4-3 NT and reminds me of Marcus Stroud.
I love the other 3 picks though. especially the trade down in rd. 1 while also trading up in rds 3 and 4. I will say however it's been good. I just don't like Ziggy.

We know he isnt a pure NT, but for our needs, there was no safety of value, no OLB or anything.

So we went with Ziggy considering we liked his measurables and thought he would pair up well w/ Abe, Babs and English.

We did try to trade down but it didnt work so that was our pick. We also did not have to trade up in the 3rd n 4th. That was part of our trade down w/ Buffalo. We gained 15 spots in the 3rd and around 15 spots in the 4th.

no, i know about the trade. I was saying it was a good call to trade up in those rounds as part of the trade instead of getting picks.

Also, I love the Nic Harris pick. he is going to be a damn good WLB.

I love the concept behind the draft though. DE, NT, OLB, OLB, SS.
Ia assume OL depth will be the rest of the draft.

We couldn't resign Domonique Foxworth so we drafted CB Asher Allen out of UGA to provide competition/depth. He can contribute a lot of ST help like returning punts and coverage.

With the last pick (6th round). We got Lyndon Murtha, OT out of Nebraska. He's just a big guy (6'7") (307lbs) who will provide depth on the O-line. Had a great combine and ran a 4.89 forty. Was the best offensive linemen left at that spot.

^ I like Murtha in the 6th... that speed is just great, although he needs to work on some other stuff as well. His 40 was .01 less than that safety out of USC... thats kinda sad
