Pats just made a bad pick. Shocking and good news. EBrown was passed so was Marcus Johnson? WOW

04-23-2005, 05:05 PM
Does anyone think whether it be with a future pick, or maybe even Aaron Glenn that we trade up here to grab a Blackstock, Canty, or Cody?

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 05:07 PM
We're not going to grab Canty or either Cody...I think if we trade into the 2nd, it would be with our 3rd rounder and a future 3rd rounder...

I think New England has a pretty good track record in their picks. They are pretty good at picking OLinemen too. Mankins will be a good player for them.

I dont think were gonna trade up, I think Texans will prolly sign another MLB possibly or just leave it at Babin/Wong/Greenwood/Peek, give Peek his shot at OLB this whole year. Babin should also be better.

there is a ton of good players left in the top of two. Brodney Poole both Cody's and Brown and Johnson at OG. ALso there is a ton of RB talent out there too.

FatBoyTim
04-23-2005, 05:11 PM
lots of LB talent there too burnett thurman blackstock. WOW

David Baas is who I'd like, but it would recquire a trade up.

EDIT: and there he goes to San Fran.

Vinny
04-23-2005, 05:14 PM
Jeff Faine just cringed.

texasguy346
04-23-2005, 05:14 PM
Baas is gone.

texasguy346
04-23-2005, 05:15 PM
Jeff Faine just cringed.

Yeah the Browns haven't been happy with him since he's gotten smaller and hasn't gotten stronger. Looks like he might be getting his walking papers.

*edit* just realized he went to san fran and not the brownies.

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 05:15 PM
Damn, there goes Baas...

Vinny
04-23-2005, 05:16 PM
I thought the skids were on the clock. Faine probably feels better than I thought.

I find the constant commercials annoying...Especially the one with the girl talking about middle relievers...Something about her voice just irritates me...

arm03c
04-23-2005, 05:18 PM
I know it's probably more of a pipe dream trading up, but Darryl Blackstock would be REAL nice since he actually knows a 3-4.

FatBoyTim
04-23-2005, 05:18 PM
i think Faine may turn out ok under crennel. they will want him to bulk up because he is going from a zone scheme to a mauling scheme under crennels new OC. That fits him better than the old regime. i think the brownies go charlie frye here or DE like tuck or cody

arm03c
04-23-2005, 05:19 PM

No, I find the stupid bell annoying... Just flash the pick on the screen.

Brodney Poole goes before Dan Cody... wow...

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 05:20 PM
Browns take Brodney Pool...I think he could develop into a very good FS for Romeo...

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 05:21 PM
Philly takes Reggie Brown...Good pick, and yes, that bell is annoying...

Nawzer
04-23-2005, 05:24 PM
ESPN's coverage is very annoying, I don't like any of their annalysts and the time between picks is just ridiculous! I enjoyed Tory Holt though. He's a smart, well spoken guy. As for the second round, I don't expect the Texans to draft up unless they really really wanted a guy but our second round pick is Phillip Buchanon and happy with that.

TexasJedi
04-23-2005, 05:24 PM
Cleveland still has Sean Jones who was drafted last year but got injured. A couple of nice young safties.

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 05:26 PM
Anybody care to guess who Tampa will pick? I'll take a wild guess and say Charlie Frye...Probably won't be the pick, but that's the first name that came to me...

TexasJedi
04-23-2005, 05:29 PM
Maybe Justin Tuck?

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 05:31 PM
So they took Barrett Ruud...I would've never guessed...The Tacks are on the clock...

FatBoyTim
04-23-2005, 05:36 PM
titans traded down to lions

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 05:36 PM
I like how they seem to not really care about the draft anymore...I'm assuming Detroit traded with Tennessee and took Shaun Cody, but I'm not sure...

FatBoyTim
04-23-2005, 05:37 PM
they picked cody DE

TexasJedi
04-23-2005, 05:37 PM
You are correct sir. Cody's a Lion.

arm03c
04-23-2005, 05:43 PM
Dan Cody's gotta be a Raider here. I thought they were gonna take him when they traded up in the 1st round...

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 05:43 PM
Fun fact that I've seen flash on the screen about 100 times already: The Texans have used 8 of their last 10 picks on defense...Does this mean the chances we take someone on the offensive side of the ball are increased? Just something to chew on :hmmm:...

Raiders take CB Stanford Routt, University of Houston

GO COOGS!!

Raiders now have two raw rookie corners. Reach on Routt

Nope, not yet.

Call me crazy, but it looks like the Titans may have reached "a tad bit" on Michael Roos/OT/Eastern Washington.

TexasJedi

No I seem to recall him having a 2nd round grade.

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 06:06 PM
Wow, I miss 20 minutes of the draft and there are 3 "reaches"...Good for us...Maybe we'll get lucky enough to have someone slip to us...

TexasJedi
04-23-2005, 06:09 PM
No I seem to recall him having a 2nd round grade. (Roos)

But not over Khalif Barnes.

Ibar_Harry
04-23-2005, 06:09 PM
The biggest disappointment for me was I thought we could really use Mankins for our O-line. He went to NE and I think they know what they have. He's a lot better than a lot of you think. We could have really used him. I was hoping we could get him by picking up a 2nd rounder, but it didn't happen and it turns out we couldn't have gotten him anyway. Some had him projected into the 3rd round, but I thought that was unrealistic. I still think we need some O-line players, but that's just my thoughts. Its really tough sometimes, but the Texans were always going to take defense over offense, but they had made that a priority by releasing Sharper.

TheRealJoker
04-23-2005, 06:09 PM
Really Jedi? I had him at 4th, I guess im just surprised Barnes is available still...

Vinny
04-23-2005, 06:12 PM
Burnett is a great pick.

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 06:13 PM
Dallas takes Burnett...He could make a very good ILB in a 3-4...From what I've heard, he was one of the best coverage LBs in college football...

TigerBait
04-23-2005, 06:13 PM
Hate to admit it but the Boys are having a good draft..

arm03c
04-23-2005, 06:14 PM
Looking at some of the prospects in round 3, you think we'll take a shot on Henry from WVA if he's available? I know we've got major character issues here, but Henry's got 1st round talent, but is slipping as we speak, and though there are SEVERAL guys I thought would be gone in the top 25-30 picks (Cody and Blackstock namely).

edo783
04-23-2005, 06:16 PM
Dallas is doing VERY well in the draft. Helping their defense alot.

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 06:17 PM
Corey Webster at 43 to the Giants may be a slight reach...He had a bad senior season that was marred by injuries and he hasn't been spectacular at workouts, but he could develop into a good CB for them...

texasguy346
04-23-2005, 06:20 PM
I don't think so. Webster would have been a 1st Round type of talent had he not had he done better in his senior season. The Giants could really use a quality CB, and Webster definately fits that bill.

Wolf
04-23-2005, 06:21 PM
Fyi... that was OUR pick.. I am sure we'd take Buchanon over Webster

Errant Hothy
04-23-2005, 06:22 PM
Justin Miller is dropping like a stone. Wonder what the GMS heard about him to casue it?

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 06:22 PM
I don't think so. Webster would have been a 1st Round type of talent had he not had he done better in his senior season. The Giants could really use a quality CB, and Webster definately fits that bill.

I agree with you...Webster would have likely been in the top 15-20 if he had a productive senior year...Webster may surprise a few people...

texasguy346
04-23-2005, 06:23 PM
Justin Miller is dropping like a stone. Wonder what the GMS heard about him to casue it?

The fact that he got arrested a week before the draft might have a little something to do with it.

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 06:24 PM
No surprise here, Arizona took JJ Arrington, who they were rumored to be enamored with...

Wow, Parcells said that Ware has Lawrence Taylor potential...

TexasJedi
04-23-2005, 06:24 PM
Fyi... that was OUR pick.. I am sure we'd take Buchanon over Webster


We had number 47 right?

Wolf
04-23-2005, 06:26 PM
oops wrong NY team :wacko:

texasguy346
04-23-2005, 06:26 PM
We had number 47 right?

Yeah. He must've mistaken the Giants pick for the Jets pick. The Jets pick with our 47th after the Dolphins.

BTW With Arrington gone I wonder where Fason will go.

TexasJedi
04-23-2005, 06:40 PM
Our former pick is up Jets fans look restless. What's the chance they'll boo?

texasguy346
04-23-2005, 06:41 PM
Miami got a good one in Roth.

The NY Jet fans went nuts when the they picked Nugent from Ohio State with our 47th pick.

UberDork
04-23-2005, 06:42 PM
Minnesota is probably crying

Errant Hothy
04-23-2005, 07:00 PM
The fact that he got arrested a week before the draft might have a little something to do with it.

His arrest report sounded pretty mundane though. A loud party and a probably drunken kid arguing with cops. Was it something more?

DRIFTAWAY
04-23-2005, 07:07 PM
So if i stand correct Khalif Barnes and Justin Tuck and Channing Crowder remain? We should try to deal up for one of them. Would be bargain at this point.

Vinny
04-23-2005, 07:16 PM
Crowder is a criminal. We won't take him.

GLM
04-23-2005, 07:21 PM
Is that Cass and Dom back in the war room?

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 07:25 PM
Well, there goes Shelton...So much for that idea...

smb114
04-23-2005, 07:25 PM
this phrase is not good. crowders a criminal and they dont really have much to trade up on. they should stay put and take an OL or rb or just go for value

Vinny
04-23-2005, 07:25 PM
Well, there goes Shelton...So much for that idea...He's overrated. Don't shed any tears on him.

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 07:29 PM
He's overrated. Don't shed any tears on him.

I wasn't speaking specifically on my own accord, I was directing my comment moreso towards the people contributing to the "Get Shelton" thread...I've been away for about an hour, but I'll assume nothing out of the ordinary happened...

04-23-2005, 07:33 PM
buffalo and Parrish .. are they trying to be the AFC's version of the Lions?
Moulds Reed, Evens Parrish..

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 07:36 PM
Good pick for the Jets...They were rumored to want Miller in the first and were able to get him with their second 2nd rounder...

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 07:39 PM
Charley is on the telephone. Could something be up?

He's not on the phone anymore...I wonder, could something have transpired?

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 07:44 PM
For you A&M fans, Terrence Murphy was just taken by the Packers...Looks like they dipped in the A&M receiver well again and now they have Murphy and Ferguson...

D-ReK
04-23-2005, 08:17 PM
6 picks until we're up...I've recently been seeing a few players I'm high on being taken...We should be up at around 8:50...

Vinny
04-23-2005, 08:18 PM
Start heading to the round 3 thread guys. ;)
