Quinn no doubt:stirpot:

We likely won't be in a position to draft either, but I'll play devil's advocate...

It will all depend on how Carr does this season...If Kubiak is able to milk some improvement out of Carr, then we have no need to look at a QB...If not, Quinn could be an avenue that we go down...

The only way that we take Peterson would be if we don't end up drafting a RB this year, but we likely will...

In all honesty, though, it's simply too early to tell...

Peterson. He is a better runningback than Bush, but Bush was the bigger all around threat.

marshawn lynch, best back in college.

kas Lynch is a big back if I am not mistaken, but I like him, he is similar to Larry Johnson in running style. I doubt we take either look for us if in that position which we wont be to go Joe Thomas or one of the WRs in that draft. Hopefully Calvin Johnson or Steve Smith.

You are mistaken...Lynch is 5-11 and 215...He is more comparable to a guy like Tomlinson than to a guy like Johnson...

Check out this run from his freshman year, dude is special...

lynch isn't big, but he can put some power on ya.

joe thomas will be a top 3 pick, along with quinn and possibly calvin johnson. seriously thomas is 10x the player d'brickashaw ferguson is. but steve smith is a 2nd rounder at best....jarrett is the star of USC's corps.

Well, I'm sort of a ND fan so I'm bias. However, I would like to say that the player out there next year I want to look at is Jeff Samardzija. I have no idea where he is ranked, but he has great hands, and good size.

Yes finally someone sees the light! Laron has been the best db the past 3 years and will tear anyones head and he knows where ball is all the time the safest and best pick. And no injury concerns.

We probably will have the 1st pick again, and we will need a QB, but Peterson should be our pick. But then Casserly will say that we need just one more guy to slow Peyton down, and screw up our draft again:brickwall

Can you imagine how Quinn felt after that bowl game. First he gets dominated by Hawk on the field, and then he knows his younger sister is getting handled by him in the hotel bedroom...that's just bad.

I say Vince Young. Vince is going to sign a three year deal with the Titans, while Kubes battles it out with DC for three before letting him go out of frustration. By that time Vince will have had enough of Bud Adams and will ask for an get a truck load of money from the Texans.

This is the same scenario the Broncos are going through with Jake Plummer. He's been there for three years and has done an admirable job, but yesterday the Broncos moved up in the draft and sealed his fate.

I will never give it up NEVER I SAY!!!!!!!

going back to watch dude said about samardjia, the only way ill accept him is if he cuts his hair. Carrs hair is bad enough. and also finds an easier way to spell his name, cus i know i misspelled it cause it has a z and all these crazy letters. But no doubt, he can play, especially at 6'5"

Jake is winning.... he has nothing to worry about. Remember Bubby Bristor??

Shanahan has a good feeling about JC, but he has the luxury to take his time, and bring him along nice and slow. Jake may be playing for another 3-5 years, Cutler will be under contract for as much. At that time, Shanahan will decide what he's going to do about QB.

Between now and then, he may consider moving him........ QB's(Matt Shaub) are a pretty hot commodoty now adays.


But you do not have to worry about the Texans picking a QB like Quinn..... Unless we'll be willing to trade our complete draft. Instead of looking at the big names you see on ESPN every week, try to find that solid guy on less talented teams(2005 Vanderbilt) or guys from smaller conferences(MAC).

I actually like Laron Landry from LSU better than Merriwether, but they're actually pretty even in my book...With Landry, Merriwether, Zbikowski, and Griffin coming out next year, we could definitely primed to take one of them in the first...Just for fun, here are their stats from last year:

Michael Griffin: 100 tackles 9 PBU 3 INT 4 blocked kicks 1 FF

LaRon Landry: 69 tackles 3 INT 11 PBU 1 sack

Tom Zbikowski: 71 tackles 5 INT 2 TD 1 FF 9 PBU 1 sack

Brandon Merriweather: 88 tackles 3 INT 1 sack 2 FF 8 PBU

Of all of them look at Laron's whole career he is a four year starter at LSU and led the 2003 Nat. Champ in tackles as a freshman

Maddict5
05-04-2006, 08:33 AM
hers a few list of the top prospects at the moment. i hope we take landry, bush:stirpot: (depending on runing game)

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/5560644

1. Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame: Quinn enters next season nearly as strong a favorite to be drafted No. 1 overall as Reggie Bush was this time last year. The Irish quarterback has the prototype combination of size, arm and the intelligence scouts are looking for. He enters his senior season already Notre Dame's career leader in passing yardage (8,336) and touchdowns passes (58).

2. Quentin Moses, DE, Georgia: Though last season was Moses' first as a starter, he was so productive he very nearly left early for the NFL. The Bulldog defensive end finished second in the SEC with 11.5 sacks and 20.5 tackles for loss. Before last season, Moses had rare opportunities to display his ability while backing up three-time All-American David Pollack. Blessed with instincts and a great first step, expect a monster season from Moses in 2006.

3. Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin: Had it not been for a knee injury against Auburn in the Capital One Bowl, Thomas likely would have forgone his senior season and made himself eligible for the 2006 NFL draft. A former defensive end, the 6-8, 302-pound Thomas has the athleticism and consistency teams are looking for in a first-round tackle.

4. Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson: Over the final month and a half of the 2005 season, there might not have been a more dominant pass rusher than Adams. He had 11.5 tackles for loss, seven sacks and 16 quarterback pressures in the final six games. Adams finished the season with 29 quarterback pressures, 9.5 sacks and 15 tackles for loss to lead Clemson in all three areas. Scouts are excited about his size, burst and long arms. The defensive end actually led the team in passes broken up (9) last season.

5. Drew Stanton, QB, Michigan State: Stanton toyed with the notion of leaving school after his junior season. He certainly has shown the NFL combination of size, athleticism, toughness and arm strength. Scouts would like to see him develop a little more consistency. A likely second-round pick had he entered the 2006 draft, a little refining next season could bump his stock into the high first round.

6. Paul Posluszny, OLB, Penn State: Though the impact made by seniors Michael Robinson, Tamba Hali and Alan Zemaitis on Penn State's turnaround last season cannot be overstated, neither can the force that was Posluszny. He not only won the Butkus Award as the nation's elite linebacker, but also the Chuck Bednarik Award as the nation's top defensive player. His 116 tackles led the team and his consistency became a trademark. Last season he became the first Big Ten student-athlete selected Football Player of the Week (Offense, Defense or Special Teams) three consecutive weeks since the conference began the selections in 1987.

7. Michael Bush, RB, Louisville: Bush is an incredible combination of size, speed and pure athleticism. The 6-2, 248-pound back has amazing athleticism. He spent his senior season in high school playing quarterback after seeing action at running back, wide receiver, defensive back, linebacker and defensive end over his career. Not only did he lead Big East in rushing, but in all-purpose yardage as well. Bush shows shockingly soft hands (48 receptions over his career, 640 yards, 2 TDs).

8. Baraka Atkins, DL, Miami: The versatile Atkins has seen action at both defensive tackle and defensive end for the Hurricanes, and could be on the verge of a breakout campaign. Atkins has 34 starts on his resume entering his senior campaign and leads all returning Hurricanes with 13 career sacks.

9. Justin Blalock, OT, Texas: While Jonathan Scott earned most of the headlines, Texas coaches will tell you that the most talented Longhorn offensive lineman last year was Blalock. Has started all 38 games during his career, all at right tackle. Has earned Big 12 accolades after each of his three seasons.

10. Quinn Pitcock, DT, Ohio State: Bullish defensive tackle whose combination of 6-3, 295-pound frame and rare pure strength make him one of top run defending interior linemen to watch for in the 2007 draft. Pitcock has earned starting action each of the past three seasons, but didn't develop into a full-time starter until last season. Pitcock lacks quickness off the snap and isn't a pass rush threat, but his ability to stand up blockers at the point of attack, locate the ball, shed and make the tackle has scouts interested.

11. H.B. Blades, ILB, Pittsburgh: A two-time first-team All-Big East selection, Blades returns for his senior season as one of the elite defenders in the collegiate ranks. Moving from the strong side to middle linebacker last season, Blades exploded, leading all Big East defenders with 121 tackles and ranking 13th nationally with an average of 11 tackles per game. He certainly has the bloodlines: His father, Bennie, and his uncles Al and Brian, were standouts at the University of Miami and went on to successful careers in the NFL.

12. Tim Crowder, DE, Texas: In a senior class featuring a few explosive, yet undersized pass rushers, Crowder's 6-4, 270-pound frame and strength against the run stands out. Crowder isn't the classic rusher off the edge teams want — he has averaged only four sacks each of the past two seasons. Regardless, Crowder has averaged 48 tackles each of the past two seasons, and while not flashy enough to earn much respect from the media (AP's Honorable Mention Big 12 last year), Big 12 coaches felt differently, voting Crowder first-team Big 12.

13. Kenny Irons, RB, Auburn: Auburn lost Ronnie Brown and Carnell "Cadillac" Williams to the NFL's first round last year. Unfortunately for opposing SEC defenses, Irons quickly stepped into the void and earned first-team all conference honors. A transfer from South Carolina, Irons averaged 5.05 yards per carry while rushing for 1,293 yards and 13 touchdowns. In his first year as the starter, Irons led the SEC with an average of 109.5 rushing yards per game during the regular season. He also paced the conference with 117.6 yards per game (941 total) in SEC games.

14. LaMarr Woodley, DE/OLB, Michigan: With the 3-4 defensive scheme gaining popularity at the NFL level, rush linebackers like Woodley are all the more intriguing to scouts. Woodley, with 20 starts in his 36 career games with the Wolverines, has 141 career tackles to go with 36 tackles for loss and 12 sacks. He has been recognized as a Big Ten honoree after each of the past two season.

15. Leon Hall, CB, Michigan: Hall has been called Michigan's top cornerback since Heisman winner Charles Woodson. A veteran of 37 career games, including 24 starts, Hall has 25 passes broken up and 9 interceptions, both leading all current Wolverines. Hall has earned Big Ten honors after each of the past two seasons and could be in line for All-American honors in 2006.

16. Marcus Thomas, DT, Florida: A starter during each of the past three seasons, Thomas has never posted fewer than 39 tackles or more than 47. NFL scouts love Thomas' 6-3, 290-pound frame, but perhaps because the game seems to come so easy to him, the expectations are that he has the potential to enjoy a truly dominant 2006. Thomas' tackles for loss have risen from 3.5 to 7.5 to 10.5 over the past three seasons, and NFL scouts are already asking Florida coaches about the talented tackle.

17. Levi Brown, OT, Penn State: Though quarterback Michael Robinson certainly was the spark for an surprising Penn State offense last season, one could make the argument that Brown supplied the steel. The 6-5, 325-pound Brown has started 34 of the past 35 games for the Nittany Lions and earned second-team All-America honors last year.

18. LaRon Landry, S, LSU: One of the top defensive backs in the country since he first stepped onto the field for the Bayou Bengals -- earning SEC accolades since his freshman season. He is an athletic, instinctive and incredibly productive free safety who led LSU in tackles in both 2003 and 2004 and enters his senior season with 241 career tackles to go along with 9 interceptions and 18 passes broken up. LaRon is the young brother of 2006 prospect Dawan Landry, a safety from Georgia Tech who was drafted in the fifth round by Baltimore.

http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/9411057/-
granted pete prisco is an idiot but this list is ok aswell

This list of 32 isn't in any order, although, as always, the quarterbacks are at the top:

Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame: If he had come out this year, he might have been the second quarterback taken. But staying in school to play in the pro-style offense used by Charlie Weis will only help his draft stock.

Drew Stanton, QB, Michigan State: He's a big, strong-armed quarterback who improved greatly last year. If he continues to grow, he has a chance to be a high pick. The tools are there.

Jordan Palmer, QB, UTEP: The brother of Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer, Jordan showed well for the Miners last year. He isn't as polished as his brother, but he has a good arm.

Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville: He suffered a major knee injury last season, but he's way ahead of schedule in his rehab and should be a go for the opener this year. Brohm is already a better prospect than brother Jeff, who had a cup of coffee in the league.

Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech: A junior in 2006, this kid has all the tools to be a great one. He's big and fast and polished. He's almost a lock to come out next year.

Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC: He is a tall receiver who has put up big numbers in his first two years with the Trojans. With Matt Leinart gone, he might not have as much success, but he will still be a high pick if he opts to come out.

Ted Ginn Jr., WR, Ohio State: Santonio Holmes was a first-round pick this year, and this kid is better, bigger and just as fast. Teams will also love his return ability.

Jeff Samardzija, WR, Notre Dame: He might be the best senior receiver on the board. He flourished last year when Weis came from the Patriots and should do so again with Quinn throwing to him.

Robert Meacham, WR, Tennessee: This 6-3, 200-pound player is a raw prospect who has been slowed by injuries. If he can stay healthy, he has a chance to be special.

Michael Bush, RB, Louisville: Reggie Bush went second this year, and this Bush has a chance to go high next year. He is more of a power runner at 250 pounds, but he gets the job done.

Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma: He is an elite runner with good size and speed. We've watched him since he stepped onto the campus make big plays, and after his junior season, you can bet he'll be ready to try the next level.

Marshawn Lynch, RB, California: This 5-11, 220-pound junior has put up some big numbers in Cal's offense. He averaged 6.4 per rush last year, which shows he's a big-time speed back.

Joe Thomas, T, Wisconsin: He thought about entering this year's draft but suffered a serious leg injury in the Badgers' bowl game. That forced him to stay in school. He's a big tackle who excels blocking for the run, although he plays on the left side.

Justin Blaylock, T, Texas: At 6-4, 330 pounds, Blaylock is a power player who has played mostly right tackle. He is a better pro prospect than teammate Jon Scott, who came out this year.

Sam Baker, T, USC: The Trojans had two linemen taken high this year and Baker has a chance to go in the top 10 next year if he comes out as a junior. He is massive at 6-9, 330, and has the power and feet scouts love.

Levi Brown, T, Penn State: This is a massive player at 6-5, 325. He's a pretty good athlete for a man that big.

Greg Olsen, TE, Miami: This transfer from Notre Dame is the next in a long line of great Miami tight ends. He's got good size and speed and has played in a Pro Style offense.

Zach Miller, TE, Arizona State: The tight end class was outstanding this year, but this kid has a chance to be a top 15 pick if he comes out as a junior. He might be better than Todd Heap, who came from ASU.

Quentin Moses, DE, Georgia: He is one of those speed rushers teams crave. He is 6-5, 260 and he had 10 sacks last year. If he can continue to get better, Moss has a chance to be a really high pick.

Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson: He's another player with speed off the corner. At 6-5, 260, he is in the same mold as Moses. He almost came out this year, but another year could mean a lot of money to him.

Tim Crowder, DE, Texas: This 6-4, 270-pound defensive end was a big part of the Longhorns' defense last year. He has been a three-year starter and should be their featured front-seven player this year.

Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC: This pass-rushing junior has the speed off the corner and he's already a polished pass rusher.

Baraka Atkins, DE, Miami: At 6-4, 270 pounds, he has played both tackle and end. If he bulks up some, he could be a dominant tackle on the next level.

Patrick Willis, LB, Mississippi: He led the SEC in tackles last year, which says something about his ability to get to the football. At 6-2, 235, he has the size teams want in their linebackers.

H.B. Blades, LB, Pittsburgh: He's short at 6-feet, but at 240 pounds, he is a thick, hard-nosed player. He's the son of former NFL player Bennie Blades.

Paul Posluszny, LB, Penn State: He injured a knee in the Orange Bowl victory over FSU; otherwise he would have been in this year's draft. He could be next year's A.J. Hawk.

Brandon Siler, LB, Florida: This junior has a chance to be a big-time player on the next level. He is a tackling machine for the Gators, a guy who can run and chase as well as any linebacker in the country.

Keith Rivers, OLB, USC: What do you know, another good player for the Trojans? Rivers was a huge recruit when he came to USC and he hasn't disappointed.

Leon Hall, CB, Michigan: He is a fluid cover corner who has 25 career pass breakups. At 6-0, 200, he has the size teams love in a corner.

Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona: Good cover corners always seem to rise to the top of a draft. Cason has that ability. Playing in Arizona's aggressive defense, he gets a lot of chances to play man coverage, which scouts love to see.

LaRon Landry, S, LSU: At 6-2, 205, he has size and range to be an effective free safety on the next level. He always seems to be around the ball.

Tom Zbikowski, S, Notre Dame: This boxer is one of those players who always seems to be around the football. He is also a good return man. Think John Lynch with speed.

everyone is all over Crowder... it's funny, because crowder has been kind of disappointing his entire career.

Okam & Griffin are the two to watch next year. Look for Okam to go top 5, the guy has tools like dwayne robertson that teams drool over. Griffin is in my mind the best safety in college. hes so good in coverage, and such an amazingly solid tackler. led the horns in tackles last year.

marshawn lynch, best back in college.

Double True!

I'm started to get worried about Peterson's durabilty/injury-proff-ness.

guys like crowder are big on everyone's preseason rankings. they expect a breakout season from them. like ryan moore since...well, since he's come to miami.

griffin's gonna have to fight with landry and anthony reddick for best draft-eligible safety this year.

I don't think we will be in the hunt for the #1 pick so I would like them to look at Penn St LB Paul Posluszny...The next coming of Butkus?
Long before he took the field in 2004, Paul Posluszny had established himself as one of the defensive unit's leaders as he attacked the weight room and off-season conditioning with infectious zeal and often awe-inspiring performance. If his true freshman campaign piqued anticipation as the next great player at "Linebacker U.," his sophomore year did nothing to quell the feeling as he led the Nittany Lions with 104 tackles and earned second-team All-Big Ten honors. Just 19 games into his collegiate career, Posluszny's status as a truly remarkable player was further elevated with his election as a tri-captain for the 2005 season. A vastly talented, assertive and instinctive player, the Pittsburgh-area standout is a probable All-America and Butkus Award candidate. He earned preseason honorable-mention All-America recognition from Street & Smith's and was selected second-team All-Big Ten by The Sporting News, Athlon and Lindy's. He also was named to the 2005 Bednarik and Nagurski award Watch Lists. The 6-2, 229-pounder is a tough, relentless pursuer with a great feel for the game. Posluszny is a natural who combines skill, speed, intelligence and explosiveness to always be around the ball and put himself in a position to make plays.

Poz is a better version of demeco ryans.

but very similar

psst: merriweather is only the 3rd best safety on his team. :)

Kenny Phillips may be better, but there is no one else better than Merriwether in that secondary...

reddick is the best on the team right now, and one of the best in the country.

reddick is the best on the team right now, and one of the best in the country.

He also missed pretty much all of last season with a torn ACL...He will likely sit behind Merriweather this year, then take over for him in 2007...Anything's possible though...

meriweather should start at SS with reddick at FS. phillips is probably going to end up the best of all 3 (and potentially better than ed reed and sean taylor), but no reason to use up the time of reddick.

Peterson or Quinn?
Here's hoping we don't even draft in the top ten next season.:twocents:

Speaking of "Da U", if Willie Williams has a hek of a year, dont be surprised if he declares for the draft.:stirpot: He's gonna be a RS sophmore but this kids potential is through the roof. He will be the best linebacker to come out of the university of miami IMO, and thats the school that produced Ray Lewis, Dan Morgan, Jonathan Vilma, DJ Williams.:)

That's what I was thinking. Quickest way to mediocrity in the NFL is to double dip positions in back to back drafts. Ryans is our weak OLB of the future. Not going to do it. Don't care how good he is. I knew they were going to cut a center. They cut the cap friendly 1. Go figgure.

Pretty much forget the UT guys. After four years of waiting, the writing is on the wall. Don''t care how good Okam is, they get a shot at him, they'll pass him by. Go figgure.

peterson hands down. he is illusive, quick, and strong. he would be able to get us in more 2nd and 4 situations, therefor leaving the defense unsure on if we are going to pass or run. peterson is going to be very successful in the nfl. i hate the sooners, but he could possibly be an mvp one day.

the answer is Peterson hands down....Quinn is overated ....there are several other great QB prospects...say Kevin Kolb from UH....

Peterson over Quinn.

Quinn seems like a big baby to me. He's always whining and crying on the sidelines. And there's definitely better QBs out there for our system,Ex. T.Smith, J.Russell, Kolb.

But I also don't see Kubiak going with a RB in the 1st. It's not his style. I'm guessing we go OL or DB in the first this year. Most likely a FS or LT.

Only 4 months til we find out.

Are you kidding me?

When the camera showed him when UCLA was about to punt for the last time, Quinn wasn't "crying and whining" like you claim. He just stood there, watching the play unfold, hoping he'd get one last shot to win the game.

Plus I've seen Quinn play since he started in place of Carlyle Holiday (who's now playing WR at Arizona......sure surprised me lol) and I've NEVER seen him whine or cry on the sidelines.

I mean, I'm all for taking Peterson or Thomas, but the things people come up with against Quinn can be ridiculous at times.

How about another DE. We'll need one for the other side now.

Best LB in draft is BOSS WILLIS. Beast on the field and plays every down without taking any play off. He is versatile enough to play OLB even though has play ILB in college.

Quinn reminds me of Carr so no thanks. We need to bring "ALL DAY" to our team.

I expect us to loose our next three games (NE, Colts and Cleveland) and finish strong 4-12 so yes there is still hope for AD and Thomas to be drafted by us provided Arizona wins few more games. We have no chance of drafting Thomas if AZ is ahead of us.
