February 22, 2006

First-round draft projection for 2006

1 Houston - * Reggie Bush - RB – USC… Texans just signed QB David Carr to a longterm deal and Bush gives this club an impact player.

3 Tennessee - Matt Leinart - QB – USC… Titans offense looking for new starter here and OC Norm Chow has worked with Matt at USC.

4 New York Jets -* Mario Williams - DE - North Carolina State… Jets defense could go through some changes if franchised DE John Abraham is traded next month.

5 Green Bay - D’Brickashaw Ferguson - OT – Virginia… Packers would love to nail down the left tackle spot for the next decade with this guy.

6 x- San Francisco - * Haloti Ngata - DT – Oregon… 49ers’ Mike Nolan wants an anchor in the middle of his underrated defense.

7 x- Oakland - A.J. Hawk - LB - Ohio State… Raiders defense needs a new look on their front seven and Hawk is ready now.

18 Dallas - Marcus McNeill - OT – Auburn… Cowboys must protect QB Drew Bledsoe if they expect to compete at playoff levels.

19 San Diego - * Ashton Youboty - CB - Ohio State… The Chargers secondary needs new talent and Youboty gives them a prospect with big upside.

I think they have Jay Cutler rated way too-high. I don't see what some are seeing with his play.

I know Vanderbilt didn't have many offensive weapons, Cutler is overrated in my book.

I just heard Mike Martz a couple of weeks ago on the radio talking about how Harrington can be the next Warner. I just don't see them taking a QB.

Coyle starts off with some decent assumptions, but it starts to go down hill from the 9th overall pick and Jay Cutler, IMO. What is Coyle thinking?

I'd take Cutler over Young and Lienart. Charles Gordon in the first round. Is he that impressive?

02-22-2006, 03:15 PM
Cutler has the prototypical size you look for in a QB, but I'm still leary of the end results in alot of his games.

Every year, one or two CB's run so fast at the combine that they end up in the late 1st round.

Gordon definitely has the capability to end up being this year's Fabian Washington...

vandy sucked ... he got sacked a ton

don't know if the oline sucked or if he held the ball too long all the time.

I watched Vandy a handful of times this year and Cutler kept them in most games by himself. He had a bad o-line and no running game and still had them in every game.

IMO he is the best QB in the draft without question.

Apparently Santonio Holmes pissed in Coyle's Cornflakes.

Pretty poor mock.
