Default #8

Team forums eh? Hm.

Well, #8, what do you guys think? Id probably say AD if he's there but I doubt he is after a rumored 4.33 40 at the combine.

Other options are Landry, Nelson, Okoye, Lynch, Levi, and maybe a few others. Personally, im a big supporter of trading down if we cant grab AD.

Thoughts?

worst thing that could happen is the big 5(JR,Calvin,JT,Quinn and Ad) are all gone for our pick. Which I believe is going to happen.
I think Laron Landry would be a great pick because he'd give us a big time saftey in a divison that requires one.

If AD is gone then the odds are in our favor for Brady Quinn to fall to us. I dont see the Lions taking him so its up to the Browns. As much as I like Carr we have given him 5 years to try and do something with this team and nothing has happened. (even with Kubiak) Plummer isnt any better and neither is Sage. I would hope we dont pass on Quinn if Peterson is taken unless we get a good deal to trade down. I have never been high on Landry and dont think he is worthy of the #8 pick. Nelson has potential but like Scott has said he doesnt have experience. If we go safety I would rather us trade down and get Michael Griffin. I havent watched Levi play so I will agree with Scott when he said that in any other year Levi wouldnt be a high commodity. I would love to see us draft Jamaal Anderson, although we probably wont get the chance. Mario and Jamaal = dominating.

Trade down for Marshawn. I'd like Okoye if we traded down, but I don't like the fact that'd be our 4th consecutive year with a 1st round Dlineman. I like Landry and Nelson but not in the top 10. I've come to grips with taking Quinn at 8. But I really want All Day.

If AD is gone then I really like to see us draft Branch, Okoye, Anderson or trade down few spots and pick up few more draft picks.

I am not a big fan of Brady Quinn and I think Quinn will fall out of top 8.

Jake Plummer = David Carr = Brady Quinn (this is what I think of Quinn).

Texans are also very interested in Ryan Harris from Notre Dame according to Kffl.com. Not a bad pick in 3rd round I suppose.

According to kffl.com, Texans have talked to selvin young RB (texas), ramonce taylor, RB - Texas, Ryan Harris LT - Notre Dame, Andy Alleman, G- Akron

What do you guys think of taking Troy Smith in the third? I personally think the pick would make a lot of sense. He is great on the run and would fit into a Kubiak offense and if hes on rollouts all the time his lack of height wont hurt so much. I think it could be a great fit.

Kubiak likes Kolb very much and he will draft him in 2nd or 3rd for sure. Smith is too short to be effective in NFL and his stock has taken a huge nose dive from all the article I have read so far.

Kolb and Stanton can fit very well with Kubiak system but I think Kolb has really impressed Kubiak very much. According to Kubiak yesterday, he said he had the best interview of any one with Kolb.

From a Kirwan article on nfl.com...

"1. A team in the top 14 spots in the draft could trade down close to the 15th spot, pick up an extra pick or two and then trade for Schaub and get the other players they need with the extra picks. Keep in mind, Schaub would have to negotiate a long-term deal with a new club. I'm not sure the Falcons will ever trade Schaub, but if a team calls with a pick close to No. 15, they might sit up and listen. I wonder if teams like Minnesota, Houston or Miami would consider this idea?"

I think we'll be targeting Kolb in the 2nd, and might even trade up to get him if thats what it takes.

As long as we don't take Quinn, I'm happy I think he's got bust written all over him. If AD is gone we've got to trade down. We could take a safety like Reggie Nelson and get some good later round picks.

Im in the same boat. While im not a huge "Quinn will bust!" person, I simply dont like him. He was completely piss poor when the Notre Dame line didnt give him 100% protection last season.

If AD doesnt fall, I am a huge Lynch supporter. While Landry or Nelson would also be a solid pick, I think id prefer Griffin/Meriweather in round 2 (depending on todays combine results, but my opinion might differ depending on results)

To get Lynch, id like to trade to the 12/13 area. Or perhaps if Quinn is still on the board.. trade w/ Carolina who needs a QB.. and pick up an extra day one pick.

I think it is between Quinn, Landry and the RBs. With Carr being moved I think Plummer comes in and drafting Quinn would be the best situation. I think signing a FA back would be smarter than going after AD or reaching a bit for Lynch. Pick up one of the safeties in round 2 and maybe a WR in round 3.

1. Quinn
2. Meriweather
3. Paul Williams

Sign Ahman Green. How does that sound?

Not good;) , but with Sherman there it is eintirely possible. Getting Green wouldn't be bad for you, but you seriously don't want Sherman to have much say in player management.

How about Leon Hall? In your division, it sure would be nice to have two reliable cover corners.

I dont know that I buy the value there. Personally, Id rather have a second rate prospect in the 2nd/3rd-ish. Someone like Ross, Wright, Jackson, Irons, Hughes, McCauley, and so on, and fill the RB/S/OL/DT needs rather than CB in round 1.

If we were to trade down to the 12-15 range its possible, but I would think Lynch is more of a possibility if we were to trade down than a CB.

That said, we do need a second CB. I love Faggins but hes not a great player.

Tim Crowder will not make it to the third round, his combine numbers were enough to guarantee a second round pick for him.

I think trading down will be a good option if you can't get AD maybe just out of the Top 10 to get Landry and scoop up an extra pick in the 4th maybe... I do think you need to get Carr some linemen he can put up the numbers and you could always pick up Travis Henry and keep working on the front 7 in the draft I wouldnt even be apposed to taking Alan Branch.. need another big body up front to eat up blockers to keep them off DeMeco Ryans !! and give Mario another guy up front to get double teamed...

If Adrian Peterson is available then he has to be our pick, even after signing Ahman Green today. If he's gone then I'd entertain trade down offers, but we'd need to at least get fair value and not move down too far, so if we can get a worthwhile deal then look at that. After that, Jamaal Anderson would be my next top choice if he's available, but I don't think he will be. Laron Landry would probably be my next choice, and he'll likely be available. FS is arguably our biggest need and he's clearly the best one in this draft and he'd be worth this pick, especially after the Combine workout he put up. I personally would also consider Amobi Okoye and maybe Leon Hall or Alan Branch. I think the team would also consider consider Brady Quinn if he's available but I personally probably wouldn't take him. I wouldn't look at Levi Brown, I don't think he's good enough to warrant that pick and don't think he's an overly good fit for our blocking scheme, and I'm content with Spencer and Winston being our OTs, I don't know that the team would look at him much at all. Obviously if Calvin Johnson or Joe Thomas were available then I'd look at them ahead of anyone besides Peterson, but I don't see any way that either will be available at our pick.

I am still in favor of taking AD, but Branch would be a good pick too. If we don't feel like taking either of them another good option is trading down to 11-13 range and taking Laron Landry.
