we could have had the next michael allan

02-28-2009, 01:24 PM
I'm quite excited in having the opportunity to be able to draft the next James Kilian.

I just think it's hilarious that the group of them argued this point for basically 1k posts yesterday.

No names? Nothing from the brain trust?

02-28-2009, 01:45 PM
Could the pick turn out to be a James Kilian? Sure. Could the pick turn out to be a good backup/special teams guy (someone like the undrafted Maurice Leggett)? Sure. Could the pick turn out to be a serviceable NFL starter like Jarrad Page? Sure.

Draft picks have value because of potential. No pick is a "safe," guaranteed thing.

02-28-2009, 01:46 PM
I don't care who it is, as long as it's a TE.

02-28-2009, 01:46 PM
Or FB...seeing as how we missed out on Owen Schmitt last year.

02-28-2009, 01:48 PM
Jose Martinez K from UTEP. The dude only missed like 3 FG from inside 50, and nailed a 64yarder.

02-28-2009, 01:48 PM
Some people just don't know when to stop and just keep extending their arguments to extreme limits, even when it makes them look like fools.

It's true that draft picks are valuable and that one generally shouldn't give them up for older players, but 6th and 7th round picks aren't all that useful. They certainly aren't worth crying about. It's pretty ironic that the very people who were arguing against trading Vrabel for a 6th and 7th were using the same arguments as the people they despise who argued that you can find a QB in the late rounds.

Hey I contributed probably 100. I was suffering from withdrawal.

This is going to leave a mark

02-28-2009, 02:49 PM
Here is a place to start lifted from another site...get to work folks.

200. Phillip Hunt, DE Houston 6-1, 260
Position Rank: 19
Post-Combine Skinny: Wasn't At The Combine
Positives: An elite pass rusher … Major-league disruptive force … Plays better than his size.
Negatives: Short. Doesn’t look the part … Held his own in the post-season circuit, but might have to be a linebacker to make a roster … Needs the right fit and won’t hold up against the run.

201. Tim Jamison, Michigan DE 6-2, 256
Position Rank: 20
Post-Combine Skinny: The workout didn't help him. He was smaller than just about everyone else and didn't show the athleticism of some of the bigger guys. The 21 reps weren't good and the 5.03 40 was even worse. He doesn't have a position.
Positives: Frame to get stronger. Has the body … Big hitter who packs a punch … Could be a strong NFL run stopper in any defensive scheme.
Negatives: Not a pure pass rusher by NFL standards … Not consistent. Can get erased for stretches by better OTs … Doesn’t have a lot of moves, even though he’s quick.

202. Chase Daniel, QB Missouri 6-0, 218
Position Rank: 13
Post-Combine Skinny: Measured up to the magical 6-0 mark, but he wasn't fast in the 40. Shortest arms of the QBs by far.
Positives: Ultimate leader. Very fiery competitor … Great accuracy and production when he gets on a roll … Mobile.
Negatives: Too short … Will be compared to Drew Brees because of size and production, but he isn’t Drew Brees … Gets in trouble when he tries to do too much.

203. Ramon Foster, OG Tennessee 6-5, 328
Position Rank: 12
Post-Combine Skinny: The 20 reps were a big problem for a player looking to shine on the inside. He's big with long arms, and he didn't move all that well.
Positives: Big body … Good worker. Good motor … Could be moved to tackle if needed.
Negatives: Not an elite pass blocker … Has issues against speed rushers and quick linemen.

204. Stryker Sulak, DE Missouri 6-5, 251
Position Rank: 20
Post-Combine Skinny: He beefed up a bit getting to over 250, and now he doesn't appear to be as rangy. The 4.77 was excellent and he was tremendously quick in the cone and shuttle drills. However, if he wants to be a regular end, he has to get stronger.
Positives: Great pass rusher …. Quick off the ball. Can drop into pass coverage well … Always working. Always moving.
Negatives: Way too lanky. Not built like an end … Not quite athletic enough to be a regular linebacker … Will likely have to be a specialist.

205. Troy Kropog, OT Tulane 6-6, 292
Position Rank: 14
Post-Combine Skinny: Wasn't At The Combine.
Positives: Very smart … Very quick and athletic … Will work to be better.
Negatives: Undersized … Won’t overpower anyone and will have to go to the right team

206. Alex Fletcher, C 6-3, 297
Position Rank: 9
Post-Combine Skinny: He moved extremely well and was great on the bench with 30 reps. However, he wasn't quite as big as expected.
Positives: Nice size and knows how to use it … Fiery and punishing. Finishes his blocks. … Smart.
Negatives: Fine against quick defenders, but struggles against stronger ones … Durability concerns … Might be better as a guard.

207. Andrew Gardner, OT Georgia Tech 6-7, 304
Position Rank: 15
Post-Combine Skinny: Still recovering from a shoulder injury, he didn't work out.
Positives: Very big, very tough … A smart blocker … Can do it all. Strong at both run and pass blocking.
Negatives: Needs to get much stronger … Doesn’t always play up to his size … Doesn’t have great feet … Got knocked out for the season with a shoulder problem.

208. Willie Tuitama, QB Arizona 6-4, 230
Position Rank: 15
Post-Combine Skinny: Wasn't Invited To The Combine
Positives: Good size and bulk. Looks the part … NFL arm with decent mobility in the pocket … Accurate.
Negatives: Durabilty a major problem … Was fine at Arizona, but not special. Didn’t blow up as expected.

209. Fenuki Tupou, OT Oregon 6-5, 314
Position Rank: 16
Post-Combine Skinny: Disappointing. Extremely small hands for a player of his size, lifts were mediocre, and he wasn't one of the more athletic-looking tackles considering his reputation.
Positives: Former tight end. Athletic … Strong enough … Dominated USF DE George Selvie.
Negatives: Will take a while to grasp an offense … Not left tackle material and might only be good enough to play on the right side.

210. Garrett Reynolds, North Carolina 6-8, 309
Position Rank: 17
Post-Combine Skinny: It's almost like everyone was expecting more. He didn't move all that well even though he's huge, and the 19 reps were a disaster, long arms or not.
Positives: Hard worker who’ll do whatever is needed … Good motor with good attitude … Brings it every play.
Negatives: Not necessarily the most gifted of blockers … Needs to get stronger. Not necessarily a finisher … Height more of a negative than a positive when it comes to leverage.

211. Nick Reed, DE Oregon 6-2, 250
Position Rank: 21
Post-Combine Skinny: Wasn't At The Combine
Positives: Big-time pass rusher … Always working. Great motor … Ultra-productive against everyone in the Pac 10.
Negatives: Too small … Not quite fast enough to play linebacker, too small to play end … A specialist. Will need to find the right fit.

212. Ryan Mouton, CB Hawaii 5-9, 187
Position Rank: 22
Post-Combine Skinny: A tough guy for his size, he showed off the quickness and shiftiness expected. The 4.54 wasn't great, but he whipped around the short drills and leapt an incredible 10'9".
Positives: Extremely tough for his size. A playmaker … Can be used as a returner … Quick and very shifty.
Negatives: Too small. Got away with his size in the WAC … Needs technique work … A willing tackler, but he’s not all that physical. Doesn’t provide any pop.

213. Corvey Irvin, DT Georgia 6-3, 301
Position Rank: 18
Post-Combine Skinny: He needed to come in and give the scouts something to get excited about, and he didn't. He wasn't smooth and he only came up with 24 reps. However, the 5.0 in the 40 was a nice surprise considering he's not considered much of an athlete.
Positives: NFL body … Excellent upside with the potential to be a steady starter … Good mover. Decent at working his way into the backfield.
Negatives: Isn’t a closer. Not an elite athlete … Won’t get to the quarterback at the NFL level … Struggles at shedding blocks.

214. Ian Campbell, DE Kansas State 6-4, 265
Position Rank: 23
Post-Combine Skinny: He struggled at KSU when moved to linebacker, but he showed the athleticism to potentially move outside at the next level. He blew through the drills with as much athleticism and quickness as most linebackers, much less the ends. He'll have come up with one more big workout, especially in the weight room, to be assured of an early second day pick.
Positives: Tremendous pass rusher if in the right scheme … Always moving. Tries to make every play … Strong tackler.
Negatives: Never improved after breakout sophomore season …Didn’t produce in space when moved to linebacker … Not strong enough.

215. Stephen McGee, QB Texas A&M 6-3, 235
Position Rank: 16
Post-Combine Skinny: Created a stir with his speed. His 4.66 40 was second only to Pat White. Ran well, and was fine throwing.
Positives: Great runner … Quick learner. Can pick up any system right away.
Negatives: Lost his job as a senior partly due to a shoulder injury … Not an elite arm.

216. Jahi Word-Daniels, CB Georgia Tech 6-0, 197
Position Rank: 23
Post-Combine Skinny: While he didn't run the 40, he played to his strength ... his strength. With good size, he's still on the draft board and he lifted an impressive 24 times on the bench. the 35.5" vertical didn't hurt.
Positives: Nice size and good hitter … Was a top prospect before a mediocre senior season … Good against the run. Physical.
Negatives: A hamstring problem hurt him … Not quite athletic enough to stay with a No. 1 NFL receiver … Not afraid to hit, but he’s not always good at it.

217. Travis Bright, OG BYU 6-4, 316
Position Rank: 13
Post-Combine Skinny: The 34 reps on the bench were among the best of the guards, and he showed some explosiveness in the drills.
Positives: Insanely strong. Record-setting strong … Plays with a mean streak … Very tough. Punishing.
Negatives: Old. He’s already 26 … Not a good athlete … Durability a problem.

218. Robert Francois, LB Boston College 6-2, 245
Position Rank: 16
Post-Combine Skinny: Wasn't At The Combine
Positives: Excellent tackler … Great open field tackler and can get into the backfield … Strong. Great hitting ability with big-time upside.
Negatives: Didn’t start for that long … Mediocre in pass coverage against athletic receivers … Not an elite athlete.

219. Demonte Bolden, DT Tennessee 6-4, 282
Position Rank: 19
Post-Combine Skinny: Everyone knows he can move, and he showed it off with a good 5.01 in the 40 and he was smooth. However, he didn't lift and he appeared to look like he still needs to hit the weights.
Positives: Very quick, very athletic … Has room to get much bigger and much stronger … Big-time upside. If he can add bulk and keep his athleticism, look out.
Negatives: Not big enough yet …

2 time "all sec 2nd team" played LT but filled in as guard as well. Limited physical potential for a LT but at 6 foot 3 he has good height to be a guard in the NFL.

He is always listed as either free agent or 7th round.

That way we'd have a 7th round pick who never started a college game backing up a 7th round pick who never started a college game.
