I don't see a player at any position that's worthy of the distinction at least as to how they fit on the current roster.

Bridgewater - Just don't think he's a "Franchise QB" , might be above average but not elite.

Clowney - Oh FFS .... what a waste of talent. If he has a motor , it came out of a moped.

Matthews - #1 overall for a RT ? (Sure he will eventually move to LT but still).

Anthony Barr - I think he's over rated.

Manziel - Boom or Bust , just too great a risk for the #1 pick.

Jace Amaro - Not for a TE.

Derek Carr - You have to be kidding me right ?!

C.J. Mosley - Might be the best football player in this draft but can you really spend the #1 pick on a guy who probably plays ILB ??

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu - Sure , the best CB in this draft but no where near being the best player or biggest impact.

Louis Nix - See Olomu.

Mike Evans - Another 1st round WR ??? I'd consider him if there weren't so damn many other holes to fill.

The quarterbacks just don't excite me. The "physical Freak" of this draft .... doesn't care and nothing else really fits.


I'd really like to see them move down in the draft somewhere around 8-10 pending the compensation is worth the move. (1+2 this year and at least another 1 next year)

@ 8 give me Mosely
@ 33 give me Antonio Richardson (OT - Tenn.)

@ 40 Shayne Skov


I'll take a QB in the 3rd and sign a veteran in FA ....
I think we can get more from Browns than #8 and their second. I have #33 Cyril Richardson currently slotted OG in NFL but he was LT in 2012 for RG3 and should be able to resolve RT and push Q for LG if one of our roster guys can win RT.

That's just compensation from this years draft .... I'd expect no less than those two picks and a future first (would like two future #1's along with those picks).

yep but we have to think like CLeveland and make the deal easy to swallow. Washington got #2 pick for 2012 first and second and first in 2013 and 2014. I think we need picks now especially with deep second and third rounds in 2014 with our needs. If they get #1 and keep their own second # 40, I could see them giving up both 8 & 25 their thirds and a first in 2015. I think that RG3 is having problems is going to lessen urge for a team to make that kind of deal.

In order for that trade to be offered, you would need at least two teams to be bidding for the pick. The only reason STL got so much for RG3 was due to the Browns bidding. If that happens, then great, but I wouldn't count on it. Although, it was rumored early this season that Josh Gordon was available. What if Cleveland offered #8 and Gordon for the #1? He's a phenomenal player, even if we don't really need him.

No I do not believe that is right. He played LG when RG3 was there. He didn't move to LT until this year. He will go high as a guard unless he shows really good agility and footwork at the combine. I think he's going to be a really really good guard. I wanted us to draft him last year if he came out.

Well since I never said that I have nothing to explain. The only thing I was wrong on was I thought McNair would wait until after the season to fire him.

I would want a 2014 3rd and a 2015 1st. Gordon although talented is 1 strike away from being suspended for a yr.

True, I'm still not sure I see that as a bad thing. Those opponent winning % numbers will remain in flux as well.

Yeah but the Texans have two very good teams remaining on the schedule that is going to push their opponent winning % higher with Indy and Denver. Lower is better in this instance ....

Better hope that the Tinbreds have something to play for in week 17 ....

The Redskins and Falcons play each other this week though so even if we win the worst we can be is #2. Based on SOS looks like we should be rooting for the Redskins to win or a tie.

with near certainty, I can say that the Texans (if they tie Atlanta) will finish with a weaker SOS than Atlanta... definitely, the Texans will finish with a stronger SOS than Washington- that's not going to be close...

Remember, also, that St. Louis owns the Redskins' 1st round pick this year, FWIW.

After week 15 the Texans still have earned the right to the #1 draft pick. If Peyton and Broncos don't stub their toe and Win @ Houston and Cousins and Washington beat the demoralized embarrassed Cowboys in week 16, the Texans will have locked up the #1 pick with one week to go in the season.
