ESPN Sports Science on 2012 Draftees
 
I figure this is as good of a place as any for this thread. The videos are interesting on their own, even if the things they measure don't always make a player great. Thought some of the draftniks may enjoy getting more up close with some of the big names. Here's a list of the videos I could find on Youtube for 2012 draft picks, feel free to post others.

Andrew Luck:

Trent Richardson:

Jayron Hosley:

Cool stuff.

Would anybody be interested in trading the whole draft for Andrew Luck?

Yes. I would pull a Ditka for only our 1-7 picks this year. However, I don't think that is nearly enough to entice the Colts to move back 25 spots. Last year, the Falcons gave up 1st (27th), second (59th) and fourth (124th) picks, and a following year's 1st and 4th for the number 6 pick. We would have to throw in a lot more than our 2012 draft to make that trade work.

Yeah, then we could take a picture of Kubiak in a tux, and Luck in a wedding dress.

Idk, I mean that's a team that needs one serious overhaul and is also trying to recreate it's defense. Double the picks should do the trick, at least it would be a damn fine start and they still have Peyton for the next few years....

Nice. You simultaneously made me laugh and remember why I don't want Luck. I wouldn't be able to stand all the corny headlines....

No! I know Luck will probably end up being a great QB (barring injury), but I just couldn't see giving up all of our draft picks for him. We need at least 1 WR and depth at several positions including, but not limited to, ILB, OC, OG, S, NT, etc..... Besides, how did trading all those picks away for Ricky Williams work out for New Orleans? :shades:

Franchise QBs are infinitely more valuable than any other position in sports, including a top of the line RB prospect who, despite people's obvious bias against the guy, still finished his career with a whole helluva lot of yards. If you needed anymore proof, how about that the lot of our picks probably wouldn't get the trade down because it wouldn't be enough value?
