i'd take it
i'de hope we wouldn't take Anthony Gonzalez with Ben Grubbs and Justin Blaylock still on the board
Houston is a guy who may shoot up the board a bit. WR would be a dumb choce with the best guard in the draft still there
Same here. I'd throw something through the TV if Blalock or Grubbs were still available when we make our 2nd round pick and we passed them up at that spot. It would take STUPID to a new level.
i second that...hmm do we want a Kevin Curtis (Anthony Gonzalez) or a Shawn Andrews (Ben Grubbs)?
There are a bunch of names I would like to see make a move for at the end of the first and the second round. That is why a trade down wouldn't surprise me.
I would much rather take a guy like Dwayne Bowe in Rd 1 and then Blalock or Grubbs in Rd 2 based on who they have available. This is a weak class for CB and almost any first round selection we could make at the position would be a reach in my opinion.
While I don't have any problem whatsoever with your picks (actually I'd love it if we were so fortunate), I have to disagree with your claim that this is a weak CB draft. Not so.
I'll be semi-pissed if we pass on Ginn
I really don't see a single CB out there who is a "shutdown" type player. Even guys like Leon Hall are thought to be better in a zone scheme. Here's a few quotes about the CB class from the ESPN website...
"In our opinion, Hall grades out as a mid-first round prospect but in a weak class of cornerbacks he could come off the board in the top-10 picks."
"Revis projects as a mid-to-late first round selection in the underwhelming 2007 cornerback class."
I can't find any other websites that talk about the strength of the class, but like I said I just see a lot of question marks with pretty much all of the prospects. Why do you think its so strong?
Do people just put up outrageous mock drafts to be kool? No way are those guys falling that far unless they commit felonies.
Houston plays EXACTLY like Wade needs a CB to play, on an island. Wade will blitz a bunch and expect man to man coverage and that is what this kid excels at.
Worst mock ever.
I'd be alright with it. I still think Aaron Glenn has another year in him.
Hopefully Wade puts him back in the slot, he got burned alot playing on the outside.
I would definitely prefer grabing a true OLB/DE to pair with D-Ware!
For the lazy.
Hmm.. if both Revis and Hall are gone by 22, I'd prefer we take a WR there, and there should be one of the big ones left if both of those guys are gone. Houston looks like a great prospect, but we already have TNew and now both starting corners would be extremely outsized by some of the freakish WRs. Henry is tall and also has a massive wingspan, if we want a future replacement it should be someone in his mold imo plus a bit more speed wouldn't hurt. Aaron Ross would be ok... I just really hate how he's already 25 years old. Hall/Revis or WR.
haha.....get ready to be pissed.......:laugh2:
No offense but I hope your P.O.'d to no end.
