    wow.

    I really want us to A)Solidify our D-line and Secondary B)Fix our O-line once and for all...but

    If he's there when we pick at #8 and we don't get any really really good offers to trade...I think they select him. I don't see us passing on him.

    If they were smart they'd love him

    They have just as many options to go towards as we do though.

    Browns D was solid in 2006, they need a QB and a RB. They'll only pass on Peterson if Quinn or Russell are available. They won't take CJ... they've already got Edwards and Winslow (lots of touches and cap space).

    Texans fans should be hoping that Detroit or Oakland passes on a QB; that's the only way Peterson lasts to #8.

    1. Russell
    2. Joe Thomas
    3. Brady Quinn

    My fingers are crossed.

    He'd definetly fill the void we were missing on offense last year. Too bad McFadden isn't eligible, we'd almost be gauranteed a workhorse rb.

    You aren't impressed with AP's highlights? Doesn't really matter. I seriously doubt he is there when we pick. Such a long time till draft day.

    Maybe I just expected to see more...He had some impressive runs, but most of the highlight was mediocre....

    I came away feeling very blah...

    Hmm... I came away with not seeing any real weaknesses from the guy. If anyone sees anything... please let me know. The dude is a monster. I guess of course the injury thing is of concern. IMO.. we would be very lucky to get this guy. He is top 3 in this draft if you axe me.

    My comments were directed towards the highlight, not the actual player....

    I saw a power runner who ran over a few guys which was a nice change to see than bush highlights.

    I also saw some of his speed. no he's not the fastest guy but there were a few highlights where he broke away and nobody caught up.

    You know how many guys could put together a highlight just like that one?

    I wanted to see something that seperated him from other backs...I didn't....It was very ordinary....

    What are you even talking about? Not many players can put together highlight films like this. Are you speaking from experience? Sure maybe guaranteed 1st rounders have highlight reels like this, but try finding one like this for Lundy. Try finding one for backs not taken in the 1st. Then let me know

    Had my comments been directed towards you, you might have had a clue...:lightbulb:

    Yes

    That highlight was ordinary....He had some nice runs, but I can almost gaurantee every back selected in the draft; over the course of three years, can make a highlight film similar to that one....

    The end.

    Its interesting to compare the highlight video of AP to the one for bush:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qp1xWc3aycg

    Despite how pessimistic many of you once Bush supporters may have gotten towards Bush, i still feel like he is going to continue to improve in the same manner we have seen over the past year. I'm trying to look at this as if they were in the same draft. Who would I want? When comparing him to AP, here is what I've noticed:
    -Bush has the best field vision of any RB I've ever seen. He seems to know where everyone is all the time
    -Bush has got to be one of the fastest RBs I've ever seen
    -Bush is a superior juker
    -Bush has better balance/leaping ability
    -AP runs hard, and downhill every time
    -AP can bust through defenders rather than go around them
    -AP is not at all afraid to run between the tackles
    -AP looks to be much stronger

    In all seriousness, Sounds like Bush would be a great hockey or soccer player too..lol
