So awtysst, do you think Casey Matthews will be there in the 4th for us? I wouldn't mind another no quit player, which would allow us to move Cushing into the strong-side linebacker possibly?

I still think we get a corner in free agency, and maybe a strong safety. Not much left at safety by the time we pick again.

I would love to get Matthews in the 4th. The key value in Matthews would not be so much that he moves Cush, but he provides excellent ILB depth plus provides an insurance policy for the rehabbing Meco.

I am thinking late 3rd now, so possibly he can be there in the fourth.

That pats love a full Rb stable using a bunch of guys.

Mallett is a straight value pick. If he develops right he could be the heir apparent to Brady or they just trade him for a high pick.

I think the Redskins are trading back too much. Seems like they will miss out on some good players. Last trade:

Dolphins receive:
Second-round pick (No. 62):
Daniel Thomas

Redskins receive:
Third-round pick (No. 79)
Fifth-round pick (No. 146)
Seventh-round pick (No. 217)

Given that we have addressed 3 major defensive needs, I kind of hope we'll go offense this time. And, for no reason other than that he comes from my undergrad school, I hope Edmond Gates slips to the 4th, and we take him there...

Seriously, though, I would like to pick up both a WR prospect and an OL (I think it's a good idea to draft one every year, period) in the later rounds.

04-29-2011, 09:12 PM
Damn, Id have liked Ellis in the 4th. Now I have my fingers crossed for Deunta Williams or Quinton Carter. If we go O-Lin I could see us go with Clint Boling - this is what NFL.com says about him:

Boling's a prospect with a lot of starting experience at both guard and tackle who profiles best as an NFL guard. A savvy, maximum-effort guy who could find a home with a franchise that values technique and mobility up front above pure strength. Has great awareness and understands the finer points of line play. Is comfortable when zone blocking or matched up against speed rushers or gap penetrators in pass protection. Isn't going to blow defenders off the ball and stand his ground against the bull rush. Experienced, versatile and durable, Boling could come off the board in the third round.

2010 First Team All-Pac 10...Entered 2009 campaign on Hendricks Award and Lombardi Award watch lists...Honorable Mention All-Pac 10 in 2008...Four-year letterman, started 34 career games for Arizona, compiling 114 career tackles, and 17 career sacks...Tallied a career-high 47 total tackles in 2010, including 10 TFL and 6.5 sacks...Combines a high motor with quickness off the ball to rate as a gifted pass rusher...Good leverage and balance...Pursues from sideline to sideline...Deceptive power enables a consistently effective bull rush...Sound tackler who is capable of laying a big hit...Possesses intangibles such as vocal, spirited leadership and high football IQ...Needs to improve flexibility in hips and ability to change direction...Limited pass rushing techniques...Has trouble disengaging from blocks and can be overwhelmed by upper echelon athletes...Lacks experience in pass coverage...Fits into tweener category...May get looks as 4-3 end or 3-4 outside linebacker.

I'm using my first post in this thread to express how much I love this draft. There was no trying to outsmart everyone by picking project players. Each of our picks is a high character leader with elite athleticism and intense work ethic, all while filling our positions of greatest need.

This is why I was stoked that Wade was coming to Houston. Lockout or not, I am excited.

I don't know if anybody saw this but these guys label Brooks Reed as a workout warrior, overhyped draft pick. That maybe his hair and comparisons to Matthews are helping him out a little too much, that he may pan out as a solid starter but anyone spending a first or second round on him was reaching. I think they may be right about the Matthews thing but getting a "solid starter" for a 2nd round pick is alright by me. And frankly we don't need him to be Clay Matthews. We need Mario to be that kind of dominator.

Watching highlights and listening to Herring talk about him, I'm buying pass rush ability for Brooks Reed. And as far as having a "maxed out frame"...6'3'' 260..4.6...30 bench...I'm good with that, even if he is a little muscle bound.

And to be fair, Matthews shot up the boards too and is a bit of an over achiever himself.

He might be a reach as a high 2nd, who really knows how far he would've fallen. All I can say is with the transition on D, getting the talent needed is worth the price.
