Lions waste no time to get the pick in. Texans already on the clock.

Lions look smart now(if their pick is Mendenhall. They got extra picks plus their guy.

If this happens please trade down.

Wish it would happen, but there's probably no one anyone covets left.

Marcus
04-26-2008, 03:58 PM
YEAH!!! Mendenhall is there!

Sorry bud, I don't think they are going to take Mendenhall.

Hope I'm wrong, but . . .

Porky
04-26-2008, 03:58 PM
My choice - Mendenhall or trade down to Philly for Otah and then take Duane Brown.

2nd choices - Mike Jenkins or Duane Brown right here at 18.

Otah, Mendenhall, Jenkins....looking GREAT for you guys.

We won't take Otah. He doesn't fit the system. Period end of story.

mattieuk
04-26-2008, 04:00 PM
I like the idea of Mendenhall, but if not its gotta be CB time (unless we're going to start getting all boring and trading down).

Either way, with the players available, I don't think they can make a bad pick.

HoustonFrog
04-26-2008, 04:00 PM
Traded pick to Ravens

Drew_Smoke

Baltimore has a plethora of picks. I hope we cash in big time.

Errant Hothy
04-26-2008, 04:01 PM
Joe Flaco is the pick for the Ravens.

Still no word on what we got.

Mailman

Flacco on the phone with Balt

What the hell just happened? We traded?

NFLN just ticked me off, missed the whole trade. Where was Schefter on that one????????

I really have no idea. I'm kind of upset that we didn't draft Mendenhall, but i kind of expected it to happen this way.

ObsiWan
04-26-2008, 04:01 PM
we got another 3rd rd (89) and 6th rd (173) pick for our #18
and we swapped 1st round picks #18 for #26. W

Work it Rick, work it!




I still would rather have had Mendenhall

Duane Brown at 26. Put it in the book.

What did we get??????????????

brakos82

We're sitting at 26th and xxth?

Might be an early 3rd plus some later ones. I dunno.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS
04-26-2008, 04:03 PM
Got an extra 3rd and 6th round pick.

GuerillaBlack
04-26-2008, 04:03 PM
We get 26th, a 3rd and 6th.

3rd and a 6th. Awesome!

Marcus
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM
what did we get out of Baltimore?

hopefully a 2nd rd pick

To go all the way to 26, we'd better have.

This tells me they wanted Williams. They didn't get him, so trade, good move. Didn't think they were interested in Mendenhall.

brakos82
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM

3rd (86) and a 6th.

Mr PC
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM
a 3rd and a sixth.

damn i wanted a second or mendenhall

texasguy346
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM
We get a 3rd & a 6th along with the 26th.

nunusguy
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM
Still Denver South, won't waste #1s on RBs like Mendenthaul.
Good Deal Smith-Kubiack !
3rd round (#89) + 5th round & 26 th overall. Love it.

Quentin Groves to Houston please.

Htownsportsfan
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM
we need depth and extra picks allows depth! Maybe we can grap a Rice etc in the 3rd.

D-ReK
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM
Flacco is kinda a reach. I'd be pissed if I were a Ravens fan.

GuerillaBlack
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM
Maybe we still get a RB. Either Mendenhall or Jones. Doubt Mendenhall will be there at 26th.

AnthonyE
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM
Terrible trade.

We didn't even get a second!

26th overall, a 3rd and a 6th

PapaL
04-26-2008, 04:04 PM

The Pencil Neck

I'm psyched.

Mr. White
04-26-2008, 04:05 PM
Shouldn't have traded for less than a 2nd.

RTP2110
04-26-2008, 04:05 PM
We got out 6th back from the Myers trade

texasguy346
04-26-2008, 04:05 PM
Might still be able to get Jenkins if he slips a little, or we might target Felix Jones in the first & maybe a Duane Brown or Molden with one of our 3rds.

D-ReK
04-26-2008, 04:05 PM
26, 89, 173 for our 18

Very "meh" trade with Mendenhall still on the board.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS

I kind of wanted to see Henne to the Ravens. Have Henne (Michigan) and Troy Smith (OSU) battle it out for the starting QB spot.

Porky
04-26-2008, 04:06 PM
We now have our full complement of picks, 7, and we'll still get the guy we want - Duane Brown LT.

Great trade!!

plenty of RBs in this draft

No way Mend falls that far and Jones isnt worth a 1st. Im hoping for Forte in the third.

Very "meh" trade with Mendenhall still on the board.

i think if we traded with the seahawks they could have given us more because they've been looking at a running back in the 1st round.

Fox
04-26-2008, 04:07 PM
I liked Mendenhall a lot, but I like the move.

awtysst
04-26-2008, 04:07 PM
An early 3rd is like a late 2nd. And an extra 6th.
Not sure where we are going at 26, but we might go Cason or Flowers.


I like it.

Nawzer
04-26-2008, 04:08 PM
We need more talent coming into the team and this move assures us at least 2 more young talented players coming in. I like this move because the team very obviously felt that no one was worth the 18th pick. Obviously only time will tell.

Htownsportsfan
04-26-2008, 04:08 PM
Maybe we still get a RB. Either Mendenhall or Jones. Doubt Mendenhall will be there at 26th.

I think the fact we just traded away the chance at Mendenhall should be a clue to those who want a RB in the first to let it go!

Brando
04-26-2008, 04:08 PM
This is fun.......

Honoring Earl 34

ObsiWan
04-26-2008, 04:09 PM
There's an outside chance that Mendenhall might still be there.
Eagles, Buccs, 'Skins, Cowboys, Steelers, Titans, don't really need a RB. The Seahawks might....

D-ReK
04-26-2008, 04:09 PM
If Duane Brown is our pick at 26, I will be (somewhat) disappointed.

Porky
04-26-2008, 04:11 PM
I like Mendenhall too, but the reason he is slipping in my mind is he has fumbleitis.

Now that we have an extra third maybe we can take a look at a Forte, or if by some chance Kevin Smith or Ray Rice slides, we go that way. There is a lot of backs that can be good RB's in the league, and with our needs a RB in the 1st is a luxury pick we can't afford.

Remember that if we had stayed and taken Mendenhall, it will have cost us that pick, a 3rd and a 6th. That price is too steep.

D-ReK

Remember that if we had stayed and taken Mendenhall, it will have cost us that pick, a 3rd and a 6th. That price is too steep.

I like Mendenhall too, but the reason he is slipping in my mind is he has fumbleitis.

Now that we have an extra third maybe we can take a look at a Forte, or if by some chance Kevin Smith or Ray Rice slides, we go that way. There is a lot of backs that can be good RB's in the league, and with our needs a RB in the 1st is a luxury pick we can't afford.

Remember that if we had stayed and taken Mendenhall, it will have cost us that pick, a 3rd and a 6th. That price is too steep.

Mendenhall's problem is the way he carries the ball. Very loose. That's easily coached, unless he is hard-headed which I don't think Mendenhall is.

We won'y get Mendenhall. The Seahawks will take him if he even drops to that #25 pick.

If Duane Brown is our pick at 26, I will be (somewhat) disappointed.

You shouldn't be. I had him rated JUST under Chris Williams on Porky's big board (hey if Kiper has one, why can't I?)

He is IDEALLY suited for the zone scheme. He is a bit raw so might need a little more time to develop, but he has tremendous upside especially on this team with this coach. Considering the other picks aquired with it, that is a grand slam homerun in my book.

I wonder if there's any way we can end up with two picks in the early 2nd. My dream (even before the draft) was to get Cason and one of the "other" OTs: Baker, Collins, or Cherilus (now gone).
