Default ESPN Historical College Draft For 2009

Basically they are using this years draft order and using college prospects in history as to what they can pick from. They can only pick them based on their college career. Need is a factor. Fun stuff

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...0&sportCat=nfl


Quote:
15. Texans: Earl Campbell, RB, Texas

Team needs: safety, defensive tackle, running back

Running back isn't an urgent need for the Texans, but how can they pass on a homegrown human wrecking ball who commands total attention from opposing defenses? Campbell doesn't possess blinding speed -- he runs a 4.6 in the 40 -- but his 5-foot-11, 244-pound build and 36-inch thighs allow him to plow over opponents. He will provide a bullish counterpart to the elusive Steve Slaton. Campbell rushed for 4,443 yards and 40 touchdowns at Texas. Said Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer: "Earl Campbell is the greatest player that ever suited up. He's the greatest football player I've ever seen. Billy Sims is human. Campbell isn't."

AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky: Despite all their defensive needs, this amounts to a no-brainer -- a Texas Longhorn transforming into a Houston Texan. With Campbell's power and Slaton's speed, Houston could have an all-time backfield. It wasn't hard to pass on Dan Wilkinson, Russell Maryland and Buck Buchanan. There was no safety on the big board to consider, and the linebacker talent will be good enough later.

Quote:
51. Cowboys: Brian Bosworth, LB, Oklahoma

Team needs: safety, wide receiver, cornerback

The buck stops with Jerry Jones in the Cowboys' draft room, and it appears as if longtime friend Barry Switzer convinced him to select the ballyhooed Sooners star. Bosworth is a 6-foot-1½, 245-pounder who runs a 4.6 in the 40, but his baggage has been well-publicized. Some scouts see him as insubordinate for attempting to maneuver around the draft process into a major media market, and he was suspended from the 1987 Orange Bowl after testing positive for steroids. What few people know is that Bosworth was an academic All-American at Oklahoma, posting a 3.28 GPA in management information. Ultimately, Bosworth is considered a franchise player in spite of his questionable decisions. He should be a solid fit with the Cowboys.

NFC East blogger Matt Mosley: In a locker room that just lost its most compelling player in Terrell Owens, this is a nice fit. Showed tremendous range on the field and in OU's drama program. The rare player who could lead a goal-line stand against Bo Jackson.

Default Re: ESPN Historical College Draft For 2009

At the risk of getting deported from the United State of Texas (hey, talk to Gov. Rick about that one) I'm going to go against picking the Tyler Rose and address our need at safety by picking Sammy Baugh, DB from TCU. Not only will our secondary be upgraded immediately but since Baugh is an excellent punter, we can use Matt Turk's roster spot for someone else. In fact, Matt Schaub better not come up lame because Slingin' Sammy might not let him get his job back.

Besides, we can always pick up a running back in the 2nd round. There's this kid named Brown, out of Syracuse, that got left out of ESPN's first round. I hear he's fairly decent.

What is comical is that they have a big board of who was included and Brown wasn't even on it. I'm assuming because he only was the leading rusher at school his senior year and was 5th in the Heisman. I guess since you are only using college stats you have to be picky

Yeah, we wouldn't want MelHairGel accusing us of "reaching" for Jim Brown. He's obviously a 2nd/3rd rd pick.
LOL!


I noticed that there was no way to comment on that big board or that draft. People would blow up their servers b!tchin' about who got left off...

Funny they have Bosworth going to the Cowgirls, I remember watching a clip of him getting trucked to the endzone by Bo Jackson. Bo Jackson would be a nice fit for the Texans and maybe he can play a little baseball for the Astros to (only if he was available)!

Why do they have busts like Charles Rodgers going back to there former team?

Not many of those guys alive now....but they always use to tell me Baugh was the best pro footbal palyer ever.

Actually there is a "comments" area..you just have to hit it at the top of the article. That is how ESPN has their comments.
