    It happens every year. Last year, it was Aaron Rodgers. The year before, it was Steven Jackson. Which high profile player do you think will fall this year?

    IMO, it will be Vince Young. Tennessee will draft Leinart, the Jets will take Ferguson, the Raiders will pass on him, and if Arizona decides they like Cutler over Young, he could fall as far as 17 to Minnesota.

    Haloti Ngata... for the simple fact he plays DT and Bunkley will be the first one taken. I don't expect to see 2 DTs taken in the top 10-15, which is where Ngata has been projected.

    This isn't a fall from the top 10, but I think Jimmy Williams has the potential to fall big time. He was at one point considered to be a late top-10 pick and I could see him getting lost in the CB/FS shuffle to the point where he drops to the early second round.

    Ngata will go before Bunkley. But Ernie Sims will drop down to the bottom of the first round, especially if he gets past Minnesota.

    I don't think Ngata will fall past any 3-4 team.

    I don't think Vince Young would fall. Hopefully he won't fall to 17, because then there would be a chance of Jerry jumping all over himself trying to trade up to get Young.

    I think Chad Greenway might fall.

    If I have to choose I will pick Jay Cutler.

    I would pick Sims or Greenway, but I don't consider them "highly touted prospects".

    I just don't think we would want to groom a QB. We have a really good chance to be an elite team this year, I think we should just stick to an agenda and make sure we fill alot of our holes. IMO, #1 on the list is OLB.

    Nothing wrong with a future franchise QB falling to us. It won't happen though, Young won't fall out of the top 10.

    Thats the kind of thinking that can get you in trouble. If Cutler or Young somehow slipped to the 18th pick (and parcells did not want to take a quarterback), I would hope that Jones would override Parcells. Remember what Jimmy Johnson said. "If you don't have a franchise quarterback than you shouldn't pass one up."

    It all depends on who Arizona holds in higher regard, VY or Cutler.

    lol, I wasn't watching the NFL when Jimmy Johnson was the coach. I started watching during the Dave "5-11" Campo Era.

    I like the way you think. If one of the QBs fell to us, I think I would rather trade down for a good value (if we can still pick up Carpenter). If we couldn't find that trade option, I would be fine with the QB.

    I just mean that I would hate for Jerry to pass up pretty much a sure thing in a OLB for a risk in Young. IMO, Cutler is a bit overhyped, but I can see what you're saying. Young is a great leader. If we have the patience to work on his passing game, he'll be good. The thing is, if we wanna win now, that's not the road we'll take.

    Agreed. There are a lot of ways to make this a successful draft but getting Ngata would be my ideal scenario. Here's hoping...

    If he gets to 14 or so, we'd better start thinking trade up. I would absolutely LOVE to have that immovable rock of a player in Dallas.

    Ngata could be there. Not too likely.

    Call it 5% shot.

    I actually already started a thread like this a couple of weeks ago (in the draft zone. Imagine that, starting a thread in the forum it actually belongs in).


    I picked Ngata. I don't feel as strongly about it as I did then, but he's still my pick.


    Gotta pick somebody, right?
