Re: Quick Thoughts About The Draft
my thoughts ... i couldnt be more in love with our defensive front 7. i railed against letting all-pro mario williams get away, and was quietly saddened by losing probowl d-roy captain demeco ... and yet with bradie james, a healthy sharpton, an improving wildman braman, growing MISTER alexander, and now mercilus and crick joining ... we're even stronger than we were last year (when we had the #2 defense in the NFL). if we can stay even remotely healthy, that is an incredible bunch of blue collar 60 minute buttload of talent front 7. mcnair's wanted to emulate the steelers ... that's how you do it, and with a coach right with lebeau as the two premier defensive specialists in the past couple of decades.
i'm not so sure about the individual players drafted on offense by kubiak, but by position i dont think we could've nailed it any better. 3 offensive linemen and 2 wide receivers (plus fan favorite keenum already as UDFA) ... perfection. the one that's giving me tingles however is brandon brooks because some have already started comparisons to one of my favorite texans - charles spencer. spencer had hands that were insane, and one scouting report on brooks is "he can wall a defensive end with one hand while looking for someone else to block with the other". love the positions on offense, and that player particularly.
