We could use a good young CB but we have other much more pressing needs. I'd be ok with that pick but I'd rather have Patrick Willis or trade down.

Drafting for need is a sure way to ensure continued mediocrity.

Give me the best player available, regardless of position.

True, let's draft another RB is he is best available.

Drafting in the 13-14-15 spot will give us a number of players to choose from, so the liklyhood of drafting the best player available at a position of need is high.

Within reason.

However, if we had drafted the best player available, regardless of position, but only within reason a couple of years ago, we woudn't have LJ.

LJ is only a few years into his career, and we have a good backup. When we got LJ, Priest was slightly a little further into his career. If we get another RB too soon, we'll probably find him getting even more frustrated than LJ was. JMO.

I just don't get Quinn going #1 in 90% of the mocks I've seen.

In this mock, I'd much rather have Willis or Blalock.

noa

Do the Redskins really need another WR? If that's what they spend their top 10 draft pick on, I will laugh my ass off.

That's just an example.

I do agree with Mecca, though, that the continued overuse of LJ very well could shorten his career.

But again, I see us in a draft position that will allow us not only to draft the best player available, but that also fills a need.

I just don't care to draft an OT or a DT, our two obvious biggest needs, in a spot where another position like WR or linebacker is a better player available.

I agree, we need to play Bennett some more. If you were a first round pick, and ended up being third string for years though....

My opinion is based off of a very limited understanding, though. I've learned to like the taste of my foot in my mouth. :)

Hall is a much better player than Blalock, IMO. I worry about Blalock becoming Leonard Davis.

Your point isn't without merit.
Many, if not most, would agree with you, so you didn't get another helping of foot here.

As for Bennett, he can't stay healthy.

So in a case like that, with your starting RB being so young, and your backup being injury prone, do you look at free agents for a possible third string instead of drafting someone?

Well, we did draft a new QB to be a third string, but Trent is nearing the end of his career, and with Huard becoming a FA...

Trade LJ for a first and second round pick. With two firsts and two seconds, you can get the O-Line re-tooled, and possibly get a running back to replace LJ. Run Bennett (Priest if he can make it back) behind the re-tooled O-Line. Package up the lower round picks to move up for a WR. Need to squeeze a DT in there somewhere. LJ will become a cancer to this team in the very near future.

Blalock is a monster. 50 consectutive starts. Hasn't allowed a sack in 25 games. If Herm wants to play a power running game the next 4 years, there is no place better to start than a mammoth OG that crushes people.

Free agency, late round pick, maybe Derek Ross.

In the meantime, my concern is building a term through the drfat that actually has a chance to grow into a contender.

I'm sick and tired of pretender status.

That would be good if we could get that, barring CP to not screw the picks up like years past.

But I have little faith on that.........

FTR, we all wanted DJ, we all knew he wouldn't make it to us. But it happened....... If OT Thomas is on the board when we pick, it's a no brainer..........

No one is going to give up a 1st and 2nd round pick for LJ.

Yeah, I'd love Thomas, or Alan Branch, or even Sam Baker, but at thsi point in time, that isn't likely.

But, as you suggested, there's a lot of movement between now and draft day.

The question is two-fold (thinking back to Leonard Davis again):

1) Will he be able to maintain his effort level in the NFL?

2) Will teams be able to resist the urge to move him to OT?

Great thing about Okoye is his motor. We need more guys like that. Like Hali and Allen.

While they do tend to have off games when the tackles/guards are simply more talented than them, they show up a lot of the time and make a lot of plays due to the no-quit attitude.

A D-line of Hali-Okoye-?-Allen would NEVER stop getting after the QB.

Believe it or not I don't want Alan Branch. He reminds me a LOT of Ryan Sims. He has great physical attributes, but if you look at his #'s from this season, the results aren't there. The last thing this team needs is another underachiever.

He's posted 2 sacks this season, 4 solo TFL, and a grand total of 23 tackles(AST and SOLO).

Judging CB's and DT's by stats is very misleading. Branch's assignment may be to tie up 2 blockers and collapse the pocket on the majority of plays.

Let me also follow that up with Okoye's stats, who I also think would be great pick:

7 sacks
11 TFL
48 Total Tackles

That's a good point, and I'll admit I haven't really watched him specifically in games so maybe I should just stop talking, but with the rest of the play-makers Michigan has on that defensive line, how often is he really being double-teamed?

2) Will teams be able to resist the urge to move him to OT?


1. What makes you think he wouldn't maintain his level in the NFL? From everything I've read he was a sought after prospect who played at a very high level all 4 years. I don't believe he ever went through a phase where he didn't work hard - thus his school record for consecutive starts. Plus, off the field he appears to work hard as well, as I have read that he graduated in December.

2. They might. He played ROT for 3 years, right? He did a decent job. Most everyone agrees he'd be a great OG, but could be used as a tackle if need be. (Kind of like Shields in his prime; a great OG that fans wanted to play tackle on occassion).

CupidStunt
12-20-2006, 04:15 PM
Okoye = one-gap penetrator, Branch = two-gap plugger who's played a lot of nose.

It's like comparing Warren Sapp to Ted Washington. Ironically, they were on the same team.

Take this year with Kevin Williams and Pat Williams, too.

Okoye is Herm type of player concerning his ability and his passion for the game

This is the first mock I've seen that didn't have the Chiefs taking a OT, DT or WR.

The names I keep seeing regularly are Levi Brown (OT) DeMarcus Tyler (DT) and in the mocks that have us picking around 15, Ted Ginn Jr. or Dwayne Jarrett.

I think I've even seen Steve Smith's name pop up once.

I"ll admit I know nothing about Okaye other than he's REALLY young. I thought I read somewhere that he was 16 his freshman year at Louisville.

He's not even listed on 4 of the mocks I posted, one has him at 13, one at 26.

I'm actually getting excited for April to roll around.......
