    I'm watching a little bit of the Alabama Crimson VS White right now and let me just say I know who are 2010 1st round pick is.

    Terrance Cody..this guy is mammoth NT! I wanted him to come out this year since his stock isn't so high. But Terrance is exactly what we need at NT..just lookin ahead a little lol.

    I hope we're not picking that high in the draft to have a chance to take him. He's going to be a top 10 pick for sure, even top 5.

    I'm sorry, you mis-spelled "Colt McCoy"... :D

    I could, however, live with Sergio Kindle...

    I can help with that... first, we package our first, second and fourth to move up high enough to draft Colt McCoy, QB, Texas... he'll learn the game for a couple-three seasons, then become the next great Cowboys QB when Romo is ready to pack it in...


    I'm figuring the Boys to wind up drafting in the 25-30 range, and Colt will go in the top 10 as things stand right now, that's why I'm packaging picks... if necessary, a future pick might be involved...

    Aternatively, I could live with a bit less of a trade up, and drafting Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas... 6-4, 255 pounds, 4.55 second 40... he'll probably be a top 15 pick...

    Then in the 3rd round, I'd go with Myron Rolle, SS, Florida State... 6-2, 216 pounds, 4.5 second 40... we wouldn't have to worry about his ability to learn the playbook, the guy's up for a Rhodes Scholarship...

    In the 5th, it's Eric Cook, C/OG/OT, New Mexico... 6-6, 316 pounds, 5.2 second 40... he can literally play anywhere along the offensive line...

    Moving to the 6th, the Boys claim Quintin Mikell, RB/WR, Virginia... 6-1, 206 pounds, 4.4 second 40... this guy might be the biggest scatback you've ever seen, a good enough receiver that he might even project to WR... and that 4.4 40 time is probably conservative...

    Finally, the Boys draft Marion Winn, OT/OG, Texas Tech... 6-6, 325 pounds, 5.25 second 40...

    So, whaddaya think??

    By that I mean, do you think I'm a sick puppy for being able to answer your question already??

    :D

    This early on, I can tell you that my beloved Longhorns will be a major factor in next year's draft, with McCoy, Kindle and OT Adam Ulatoski possibly going in the first round, WR Jordan Shipley currently grading as a possible first day pick, C Crhis Hall, DT Lamarr Houston and OLB Rodrick Muckelroy figuring in the 4th to 6th round range, and ILB Jared Norton and K Hunter Lawrence possible late round picks...

    FWIW, my "ratings" are all taken from NFL Draft Scout's top 750 for 2010... of course these players' ultimate draft grades will be decided over the coming year...

    Myron Rolle in the 3rd would be grand theft. I like it.

    Silverbear, as an avid UT fan myself, I have to say.... why so stingy on the number of Longhorn picks? :p:

    I agree with you on all your assumptions except for Colt McBoy ...

    He isn't an NFL QB and his want to be toughness thing will not translate in the NFL, not for a QB.

    It will get him killed.

    Give me a polished passer with extreme accuracy like #14 for the Sooners before this INT machine with no passing touch.

    I just couldn't figure out how to work Ulatoski in there...

    Yeah, Cody is awesome.

    Julio Jones and Marquis Maze are really good looking too, but they don't come out until 2012.

    I would think drafting a guy to hold kicks in the 1st round is a bit of a reach.

    You must have missed the playful mock draft I put out earlier this offseason, where I had the Boys trading up to draft Brian Orakpo, giving up their 2nd and 3rd round picks plus either players or future picks...

    Then in the 4th round, I had them drafting Roy Miller and Quan Cosby, in the later rounds they added Henry Melton, Ryan Palmer, Chris Ogbonnaya, Cedric Dockery and Rashad Bobino...

    How would that draft work for you?? IMO, it was by far the single greatest mock posted this year... :D :D :D

    Actually, that draft would address some team needs, giving them another viable pass rusher, a big run-stuffing NT, a nice slot receiver and a big guard...

    Badford can only dream about having McCoy's accuracy, you Sooner Homer... Colt holds the NCAA record for completion percentage in a season, at 77.6 per cent... for that matter, his career completion percentage is 70.2...

    Meanwhile, Badford can only dream of that kind of accuracy, with his pitiful 68.7 career completion percentage... it will only get worse for him next year, as virtually the entire offensive line he's been hiding behind these last two years will be playing for pay...

    Oh, wait a sec, I forgot-- when you play for the Sooners, you're already playing for pay... so let me rephrase that, his entire offensive line will be playing in the NFL...

    And of course, when it comes to the ability to run the football, Sack Badford can't carry Colt "The Legend" McCoy's jockstrap (much as he might want to)...

    Badford-- 73 carries, 54 yards gained, 5 TDs... a lofty .7 yards per carry... 186 yards lost via the sack the last two seasons (in spite of playing behind an NFL caliber line)...

    McCoy-- 250 carries the last 2 seasons (to compare apples to apples), 1053 yards gained, 15 TDs... 4.2 yards per carry...

    The Legend is considerably more dangerous with his legs than Sack Badford is (I'm predicting 50 or 60 sacks for him this year, LOL), as well as being considerably more accurate...

    And leave it to a Sooner fan to try to turn toughness into a negative... you wouldn't do that if Badford had any...

    :D :D :D

    Here endeth the lesson... (and yes, I know you were goofin' on me)...

    If it wasn't for the Bobino pick, I'd take it :)

    I'd move Bobino to fullback...
