Which is proof positive how good Cedrick Benson really is.
my grandma would do a better mock draft than that.
if we pass on Mike williams I will go postal
Ronnie Brown is an interesting pick, but I wouldn't pick a guy in the top 10 who isn't the #1 RB on his own college team. Heck, wouldn't spend a top 10 on Cadillac for that matter. Good RBs are regularly found in rounds 2-4 in even weak drafts - there is no point on spending a high pick on a non-elite RB (i.e. Tomlinson).
The issue in the NFL these days is acquiring premium players in the draft because they rarely come available in FA - they either get re-signed or get the franchise designation placed on them. The only player that I'm pretty sure will be elite is Mike Williams. If he's on the board, we have to take him unless some team wants to give us a ridiculous deal and we can still pick him a couple spots later.
After him, I'm not so enamoured with the talent at the top of this draft. I think Brooks or Johnson would be okay but I'm not overly impressed with any of the DL likely to be available in the top 10. I would suggest doing a trade down and acquiring Corey Webster or Justin Miller at CB because this is a strong class. I think these two are as good as Rolle and can be had for cheaper. Probably a trade into the early 20s would suffice. Hopefully this will garner us a few high picks - maybe a 2nd and 3rd this year and another 1st rounder next year. We could use some of those picks to build back up the talent in the front 7.
Has there ever been a tag team gone postal event? I may be with you on that.
I doubt we see one back go in the top ten, much less what appears to be 3.
I agree with hos that the only RB I've seen this year that I'd want to spend a 1st on is a true freshman, now that kid is a stud.
And anyone who can really defense Benson as a #1 overall really needs to take off the stupid burnt orange glasses they are wearing.
I didn't see Mathias Kiwanuka or that sophmore LB from Virginia either.so it musta just been seniors
I don't think it would be about defending Benson. It would be about Miami drafting just for need if they had the #1 overall pick. Miami is dumb enough to make that type of pick. Benson is probably the #1 running back that will be in the draft and they need a running back. They need offensive lineman even worse. The smart thing for Miami to do is try to trade back and then grab Benson.
Actually, I think he signed with the Panthers. I am not sure though...
Make sure you understand that I do not care for this mock draft.
I would rather have Rolle, Johnson, Williams, instead of Marlin and Ronnie.
However I will say this.
I think when it is all said and done that Cadillac Williams, Cedric Benson and possibly Ronnie Brown will be better NFL RBs then Stephen Jackson...and you know I liked Stephen Jackson last year.
A pick in the top 10 and we take a shot at a BACKUP RB???? Are you kidding me! The kid maybe good but with a top 10 pick, he needs to be a sure thing and NO BACKUP is a sure thing (Hope we learn that with Hambone). There are so many other playmakers still on board, we better not take a backup.
I don't have a problem if we take him much later but not at top 10.
This is the worse mock draft. Must be a 6th grade mock. Mike williams or Braylon Edwards, yes, DJ Johnson would be good at mid teens, not top 10 (remember, value at your pick) Do not need a RB that high. Vince Young sucks as a QB, he will be converted to a WR. Never been impressed, other than his running, remember Randell Cunningham? Ok QB, great running, strong arm. This is Young.
Isn't Bowen out for the year with a blown knee, wouldn't want him.
No he is starting for the Cardnials. He is the reason why they were able to release Jackson.
Cedrick Benson #1? Wow, its not often you see a mock draft instantly lose all of its credibility with its first pick.
If Vince Young plays in the NFL, he'll have to go the Ronald Curry route as a WR.
