I don't and think there are MUCH better QBs in next year's draft(McCoy, Bradford, Snead, maybe Tebow, Hiller, Robinson, etc)
Pretty much sums it up but it will be interesting to see how Hasselbeck's remaining career plays out. I could see him leaving after a year but if he is healthy and productive this season it will be a tough call on their part. Two years as a backup wouldn't be the end of the world for Sanchez (see Aaron Rodgers) and its not like Hasselbeck is Farve as far as health. Sanchez will get some starts before he officially becomes the starter there. Heck, if Hasselbeck's health goes south early thats a pretty good insurance policy. Starting to get the feeling that the top 4 picks, barring trades, are going to go QB, OT, OT, QB.

If we trade up for any defensive player I expect it to be Raji, the Boston DT.
Regarding Gosselin as a Draft Guru, I'm honestly wondering if he hasn't seen his best days, but we'll see what his final edition looks like ? BTW, I think local draft expert Lance Zeirland did as well with his mock last year as Gosselin did ?

last days? You think just because he isn't emulating other mocks (mock drafts mind you....mocks) he is 'losing it'? Are we expecting him to be Nostradamus? Gosselin still has some of the best information out there.

I wonder where you come up with your stuff sometimes

If they awarded a championship belt to the mock draft king, Dallas Morning News columnist Rick Gosselin would have it based on accuracy and a willingness to submerge himself in prospects' minutiae for two months each spring. At the 2009 NFL combine, Gosselin talked to 220 of the 335 invited prospects.

The pick Gosselin made for us looks to be a fantasy. It seems like the Redskins might take him....

per kffl.com -

Redskins | Interested in Orakpo
Tue, 21 Apr 2009 07:43:45 -0700

Jason La Canfora, of The Washington Post, reports Texas DE/OLB Brian Orakpo is a player the Washington Redskins value greatly and someone team officials have indicated they would pounce on should he slip to the No. 13 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

I have no doubt that the draft "could" turn out like this. But I have a hard time seeing...

A.) Orakpo taken after Maybin (To me Maybin is more of a project)
B.) Sanchez going #4 (Dude has 1 year of football under his belt. And Seattle has a QB. Hasselbeck will be back and they will take a LT or defender. I project #12 Denver.)
C.) Freeman going #10 (Besides being big and having a great arm, what makes him a top 10 prospect? I have him around #19 the bucs down to the 2nd round.)
D.) Rey Rey falling to #23 (Falling past San Diego, NYJ, and Denver. I think he would be a great fit at ILB for a 3-4 team.

But all in all there is no reason why the draft couldnt fall that way. And I would be ECSTATIC to hear Orakpo's name get called at #15.

I look at that same quote and wonder what they are really thinking. It's not in the best interest of any franchise to be too candid right before the draft. It would be akin to showing your cards before you try to raise the pot in a poker game.

Vinny, these are the same guys that traded into the first round days before the draft and announced to the NFL that they wanted Jason Campbell. Then, they sat there on draft day and took him. It always amazes me how guys at this level of a great business can consistently act so foolishly and use such poor judgement. It is moves like that which reinforce my confidence to second guess NFL coaches and GMs.
