This thread is much like the game day threads from the bullpen...Basically, post your thoughts as you're watching the 2005 NFL draft...More than any year in recent memory, this draft has been a difficult one to figure out...Let's hope our boy Cass gets a steal or two...

After months of overanalyzation, it's finally here! :woot :headbang: :dance:

04-23-2005, 03:41 AM
Cass definitely has a trick or two up his sleeve...I forecast a 100% chance he'll make at least one pick that leaves up looking like this: :um: ...

So who does everyone think is gonna be the top overall pick? Alex Smith seems to be the concensus pick, but there are claims that it's all a smokescreen...I think what ends up happening is San Fran takes Alex Smith and then trades him to Tampa Bay and then they select Aaron Rodgers at 5, but that's just my lil prediction :whistle: ...

I saw a mock last night that had Rodgers falling all the way to Green Bay at 24. Not saying that means anything but I think lots of people are down on him and his stock has really suffered lately.

I think someone will probably trade up and get him before 24, but he may be in for a long day...Anybody know what the latest a prospect has waited in the green room is?

It might have been Chris Simms a couple of years ago. Expected to go in the 1st he lasted until the very last pick on the first day.

Simms was in the green room in 2003? From what I remember, nobody had him pegged to be a high first rounder, but maybe nobody else wanted to be in there idonno:...

I don't recall Simms being in the green room. Usually the prospects expected to go in the top half of the first round show up in NY. I know Big Ben waited for awhile, and he was the last of the players who made the trip to NY to hear his name called. He looked awfully lonely sitting at that table all by himself.

You may be right about him not being in the Green Room, but as I recall he was on the ESPN promos back then like they have with Pollack, Smith, Brown etc. this year. And he was bitterly disappointed at going late 3rd.

Quick question...Where if at all do you think Clarrett will go?

I think Kiper's credibility will withstand it even if Williams has a terrible season. He's been wrong many times before and it never hurt his job security as an ESPN Draft "Guru". I tend to agree with him that Williams will be a special player, but I'm sure there are plenty who think just the opposite as well.

Not to mention that Rodgers will cost less to sign and their GM is a big proponent of "money ball"...I predicted that SF would draft Smith then trade him, much like San Diego did with Manning last year, in another thread and I still think that's likely...

I am thinking Miami will be going with Ronnie Brown. I dont think a trade will be made.

Errant Hothy
04-23-2005, 11:30 AM
If they can sign him, these will start the return of teh 49ers. Damn Smith is only 20 and has his degree. And finished second in the Wonderlic's at the combine, first was the QB from Harvard finished in 9 minutes and got all 50 questions right. DAMN and Gore had a 6 on the Wonderlic.

if Miami can't trade down & take a RB later I'm guessing they go Aaron Rodgers, QB Cal.

The only question I have about Smith is that I wonder if he is a "system QB"...He took 100% of his snaps from the shotgun and their offense resembled the Florida offense a lot of the time, and we all know the stigma surrounding "fun n gun" QBs...I wish him all the best though, except for when we play them...

texasguy346
04-23-2005, 11:33 AM
I'm guessing Miami trades with Washington, and the Redskins pick up Edwards. Snyder might throw away the entire draft in the process.

Lucky
04-23-2005, 11:34 AM
Alex Smith is the weakest #1 pick I can remember.

The Dolphins are about to make another mistake at #2 when they select Edwards. Who's supposed to throw the ball to Braylon? Saban needs to get out of this pick or take Ronnie Brown.

DoCt3rJ
04-23-2005, 11:34 AM
I really don't think he was in a fun and gun type offense. He diden't throw many touchdowns, or many yards. I watched him a few games, he's really accurate, smart and poised, hes just gonna have to transfer all that to the NFL.

SO did Gary Coleman, and Brady and Manning play a lot in the gun, as for the system thing; nearly all college QBs need to work on read progression and looking off safetys and LBs.

04-23-2005, 11:39 AM
Tim Couch? And I'm sure I can dig up some weak #1s from the lasr 20 years.
In hindsight, Couch was a terrible pick. But he was an acclaimed HS All American, 3 year starter in the SEC, and the #1 QB on most teams board. Smith may turn out to be the next Montana, but he doesn't have the credentials as the 1st pick that Couch had.

He threw for 400 yards and 1 TD less than Heisman winner Matt Leinart, so it seems he had quite a few yards and TDs...Plenty of top QBs come from pass heavy offenses, though, so he should be fine...I was just carrying the Florida stigma to Utah...

12 picks in front of us. 15 minutes per pick equals 180 minutes or 3 hours, San Fran went on the clock around 11:13 so we should be on the clock from 2:11pm ish until around 2:30pm ish.

Braylon Edwards, Kellen Winslow, Andre Davis. 3 good targets the Browns can't get the ball to. Look for a trade by the Browns for a QB at some point. Maybe Rohan Davey or Chris Simms if Tampa takes Rodgers.

Is Cadillac Williams the surprise pick here?

Good pick by the Browns. No way I take a Harrington-esque QB over Edwards. You can find noodle-armed QB's later in the draft.

its exact, trades don't slow down the clock, between 2:10 and 2:30

I think the team that trades for the pick gets a fresh 15 minutes. That's what'll slow us down.

You can't really get an exact idea of where the Texans will pick since every team doesn't use every bit of the 15 minutes. Some teams get the pick in with 2 minutes left some with only seconds left. Add the differences up through 12 picks and you could have a significant difference. If trades occur I, too, was under the impression that the team got the full 15 minutes to make their pick.

FatBoyTim

this top 3 is working for the titans. Benson at 4 and caddy at 5. So Minn will want MW at 6 cause they wont blow a 7 on DJ or Williamson. I bet they trade one slot with the titans

I heard that too, but you've gotta think somebody will take him in the first...If Matt Jones, a guy who never played WR in college, can be looked at as a 1st rounder, then Williams has to be a high to mid 1st rounder...

the titans really have alot of options. CB QB or WR. They are going to get a great player regardless. But i think the smartest move is to move on out. Reese has traded out 4 straight yrs. They have alot of CB on their roster and only two WR.
