Can I be the first to say this was a lame draft?

    Which player? You want me to run through them all? The only one I'm cold on is Wilber.

    DOn't justify it man. If he came here with some statements besides, "I dont like it" and explained why he does not like player A, B or C it would of been commendable and respectable and deserved an educated response. Thus this is not the situation. Your going to spend a lot of time giving an informed response and it's going to fall on deaf ears with no response.

    Eh...I think he just doesn't know anything about any of these players, so is underwhelmed. Once you learn about them, it's easy to get excited.

    This is actually almost exactly where I'm at.

    I worry about Wilber, and I wonder at the placement (not necessarily the selection, since I don't know enough about them) of some of the others.

    But do the players themselves worry me, do I feel like we left incredible value on the board? I'm questioning myself since half the guys I was screaming for us missing out on are still on the board as we move into the 7th round.

    I feel pretty good.

    the only reason you dont like the draft is because they drafted people you did not know. Nobody knew who tom brady was or victor cruz was and look how they turned out. I have no problem drafting people with high motors and dedication.

    I think many of us can say the same.

    You mean the guy we picked over Greg Childs, whom we wanted?

    Can you honestly tell me your excited about Johnson and Coale?

    Pumped alot of youth into the defense. You have to think Ryan had some say in this. I cant wait to see these guys come together.
    The TE has speed that makes him dangerous. I think he could find himself with a few plays. Speed will make those Eagle lbs play honest.
    A late rounder that not only makes the team but finds his way on the field.

    Yes, I will do that. I've done it before.

    I thought Marcus Spears was going to be awesome - that's the first thing that pops in my head. There have been others.

    Umm I love Greg Childs and wanted him very badly but we never wanted him. And if "we" did the fans wouldn't know for sure. I'm very happy with Johnson and Coale. Did you think we would get Blackmon and Barron in the 4th and 5th?

    Coale: HELL yes. Have you seen him play or even read/listened to what any of the "experts" has to say.

    Johnson: I'd never heard of him, much less seen him play, but after five minutes of research I see that he's a high character guy with top-notch measurables and excellent production, albeit at a small school. So I'm cautiously quite optimistic and reserving all judgement til I see him play.

    Yes, I can tell you I'm excited about both of them. Tremendous athletes. I think they both get a good bit of playing time this year.

    Drew Broylhart had Coale as a 1st round caliber player. He immediately fills a role as a slot receiver. I love guys like Johnson. Fantastic athlete and really looks like a man among boys at his level. He's exactly the type of guy you want at what is essentially a high 5th round pick.

    this draft will ultimately come down to what we get out of Claibourne. there is no telling after him who might pan out and who doesnt. but if Claibourne busts this draft will bust.

    So you enjoy being ridiculed on here. Now I get why you started this thread.

    I have watched Coale play many times and hell yes I am excited. This is a great pick. I would not be the least bit surprised if he's our slot receiver by opening week.
