Default Hypothetical Situation(s)

I have been looking at a ton of mock drafts and draft coverage on a bunch of different sites. From what I've seen, I think there are 2 situations which would enable us to get AD. These 2 situations are pretty simple. One situation would be the Raiders drafting arguably the BPA in Calvin Johnson. Next would be the Lions. They will probably get Thomas. Now, for my 2nd situation. The Cleveland Browns are next. RB isn't exactly the biggest need, & with Tampa Bay, Arizona, Washington & Minnesota picking afterwards, AD won't be drafted between 3 & 8 (barring a trade). The Browns could very well go for JaMarcus Russell, meaning that the Texans could get no other but AD. My biggest question is if Russell on the board, the Browns still pick up AD. What do ya'll think?

I heard from somewhere Brown's owner is interested in Jamarcus Russell. If he's available he'll get picked.

I keep having a feeling Oakland will pick AP. I don't think Oakland will pick CJ because. CJ has been saying he doesn't want to play in Oakland. I don't think Jamarcus Russell will go #1 one just because Al Davis don't pick QB in 1st round. Then isn't AP the logical answer?

If that's the case, Oakland should probably trade down. Where did you hear that CJ didn't want to go to Oakland?I've never heard that before.

Default Re: Hypothetical Situation(s)

In my opinion, oakland either needs to draft calvin johnson or jamarcus russell.

Calvin Johnson, who imo is the best player in the entire draft could be chosen because they are going to havw WR issues. CJ will be one of the best WR in the entire league bar none.

Jamarcus Russell has a hell of an arm. That's the only reason al davis will consider him. he wants the deep pass. JR has potential to be an AWESOME quarterback in the nfl and he may just pull the trigger on that potential beacuse all Aaron Brooks has is 'big hands'. they need a QB big time but who knows what al will do.

I don't see oakland selecting AP at all at the #1 spot. no doubt he could help the team but davis would be more inclinde to select CJ there or JR who is the 'popular' voter. Those are the only two players who he will select IMo.


Calvin Johnson or Jamarcus Russell at #1 overall...that will decide the rest of the draft.

Then who DETROIT selects..quinn, thomas..etc will decide the rest of the draft

Then who CLEVELAND selects...Russell, Quinn, Peterson, Branch, etc will decide the rest of the draft.

There are so many mock drafts that are 'acurate' it's rediculous. It's a lot of fun and I have my own feelings but until free agency ocurrs we have absolutely nothing. This is going to be an awesome FA for the texans and it's going to be an awesome draft for us as well.

just think in less than 3 months the draft will be over. woo hoo!!!

First of all, how are these 2 seperate situations? They are a continuation of the same situation. And every single mock draft is just an excercise in hypothetical situations and potential outcomes. How can you be so sure none of the teams picking 3-8 would pass on AP? If he's the next coming of Reggie Bush, then HOW can they pass on him? I can see a few passing but not all 7. Minnesota could use a RB and who knows what Washington might do. Heck, Al Davis just might draft him.

Another Hypothetical:

Little known Mike Berg out of Harvard shows up at the draft and measures out at 6'7 and 320 pounds of pure muscle. For a moment this will confuse the scouts that had previously had him listed at 6'2 and 260. However, this explains his lack of production prior to the combine (where he matches Mario's numbers in every event). Everyone immediately ranks him in their top 5 picks. However, Al Davis (being behind the times and not realizing he really should draft the "big pretty") wants speed at a skill position, so he looks to trade down. Houston, over Kubiak's objections, decides he is the guy and trades Andre, Carr and #8 to move up to #1 and take him.

Then next year, Berg and Mario each register 3 sacks a game (and Weaver and Johnson each get two a game because other teams have to triple team Berg and Mario or they would get 9 sacks a game each) and we win every game in the regular season.

We almost lose in the conference championship game because of the combination of our OL giving up its average of 7 sacks a game and Andre Johnson racking up 6 touchdowns and 300 yards receiving (with Quinn, the #8 pick only throwing every pass to Andre the whole game - while taunting hs own teammate Randy Moss with "bet you won't hit my meter maid Aunt with your car again, will you"). But, with time running out, Moss attacks Quinn with a Sharpie that he had hidden in his sock resulting in both being thrown out of the game. Carr comes in, tries to throw to Andre who is quadruple covered, Dunta intercepts and scores to win the game as time runs out.
Then in the Superbowl, Chicago runs every play and they rout us 77-0, with 10 touchdowns coming from their defense and the last one from their punt return team.

VY/Reegie crowd still tring to get over the hang over. Now that there thing is true love. How can you live life like that ? I only hope you don't get plantar farcus or whatever the hell they call it. Then you'll truely know how foolish and hopeless your post reads. Mario is a fine prospect. Believe or not some of us are actually happy with the way the draft went down last year. I only hope they do half as well with the choices this year.

XMAN is still pretty funny. I'm still laughing about it and I got over the RB/VY thing right at a year ago. :P
