So, this must be where the unrealistic dreamers' room is.....cool. I think we can get DMAC w/the #22 pick, and Dorsey w/the #28 pick. Then, we can grab Aqib Alib w/the #61 spot. We shouldn't have any trouble getting Limas Sweed at #92, even though he ran something like a 4.45 40 at the Combine.....haha.
Wow, this IS fun.
Seriously, though, here's hoping that sanity will reign on April 26, (my b/day, by the way---what a way to celebrate your birthday, 'eh?) As some of the tests showed at the Combine this week, there are plenty of excellent RBs to go around in this draft. I was leaning toward Jamaal Charles after watching his highlights from his career in the Texas site. The kid is not only fast, but quick twitched & shifty. He ran for a lot of yards & TDs while a Longhorn.
But, you just can't ignore what Chris Johnson has done. He led the nation in all-purpose yards last year, and that's just what we need from a complementary back. Then, when he blew everyone away at the Combine w/a legitimate 4.24 40, that sealed it for me. Of course, I think it helped catapult him from a late 2nd-early 3rd, to a late 1st. I would have no problem taking either Limas Sweed or Aqib Talib w/the #22nd & Johnson w/the #28. If we don't get a WR in the 1st, then there's always going to be an Andre Caldwell type we can grab in the 2nd. He ran a 4.37 at the Combine, & is the all-time receiving leader in Florida history. He also looked very good during Senior Bowl week. Can you imagine having a RB who runs a 4.24 & a WR running a 4.37? Speed kills.
If JJ trades up for anything, he should trade up for a NT. Fergy isn't getting any younger, and there is really no legitimate NT behind him. Remember, the NT is the foundation of the 3-4, and Sedrick Ellis would work perfectly in a Phillips attack mode defense.
JMHO......in the dream room, that is.
