    Not bad but i think that Jamal Charles should have been in the top 5 running backs and you guys should take Antoine Cason out because he is going back to Arizona for his senior season.

    I've seen a lot of people writing this. Cason went back for his senior season last year. He's a senior this year...he's in the draft.

    It's gotta be tough filling that 5th spot for the RB's this year- Johnson/Charles/Rice...the list goes on!

    Cason is a senior.

    I have Charles at #6 for RB, followed by Rice, Hart, Kevin Smith, & Forte.

    My list will most certainly change at least a little bit after the Senior Bowl & Combine.

    I agree with the spot for Martellus. If we had used him more in our offense I have no doubt that he could have easily been #1 and a lock for the first round.

    What about Red Bryant, DL? I coulda sworn he was entering the draft.

    I would be very upset if we drafted Charles over either Rice or Hart. I just don't understand what people see in him, other than being from UT.

    Could be his amazing speed.

    Or his great vision.

    Or his ability to hit the hole fast.

    Or the fact that he added 10 pounds before the season & ran with A LOT more power than he did his first two seasons.

    Fans love speed in the backfield, and Charles has that covered.

    I like the Hester kid at fullback. He would give us a tweener HB/FB. If we are gonna have 2, might as well have one who can do things in the passing game too. Cook and Leech are awful recievers and ball handlers.

    Cook gets such a bad rap for those two fumbles last year. He is a pretty good receiver out of the backfield. Better than Leach at least.

    I do like Hester though.

    looks pretty darn good to me :thumbup

    keeping an eye on cb Tracy Porter, needs to get stronger/physical to compete & play with more confidence but he has press cover skills, fluid hips & hand position/placment without drawing flags.

    I would also note another Indiana player, WR James Hardy. I feel he is a top 5 WR, and a potential #1 type WR.

    Cook could easily be replaced, not sure on his contract status or cap hit however. I like Hester too, on the negative side to draft him you might have to spend that valueable 3rd pick. Is it just me or does anyone else think the Texans will wait til the 6th/7th rd before taking a tough inside, downhill back? anyone else impressed with the back from USC, Chauncey Washington 5-11 1/2 215-220? looks like a perfect fit for the Texans & they can use the 3rd rd. pick on a corner to develop like DeJuan Tribble who looks like he will slip to the 3rd rd.

    Could just be that fumbles...alot.

    Does not run between the tackles that well...still. Better for sure, but still not great.

    Isn't the best at picking up the blitz

    Charles will get his shot and might just make a lot out of it; but to act ;ike he is without faults is a bit much. Add to that, that this is an absolutly stufffed draft class at RB.

    Charles may very well jump in the rankings if he throws down a monster 40 time at the combine, but till then he will not get the attention you think he deserves.

    I admit I am one of the few people who thinks Limas Sweed is overrated, I have not seen anything that would put him in the top 5 WR this year. also I think you have TE John Carlson to low. Yes, he did not do much this past year but he really did not have anyone throwing to him and he spent a lot of time having to block because of poor oline play. I think he the #1 or #2 TE in the draft. Having a little biased because of my feelings for ND. I am not sure whoI would put at #1 Rucker or Carlson, I loved watching Rucker in the bowl game he was very impressive.

    If you read other threads then you would see that I have mentioned some faults that I think Charles has.

    I admit that Charles is one of my favorite prospects this year, but I have him going in the second round, hardly a reach, IMO.

    I have Porter as the #12 CB right now. There's just too many this year to have an accurate list before the Senior Bowl.

    I have Hardy #7 between Devin Thomas & Manningham.

    I'm a hardcore UT fan and I'm still not sold on him. I had Early Doucet & Devin Thomas ranked above him but I changed it. Sweed's 40 time will decide where he will go.

    TE is gonna be a tough call this year. I feel like Carlson is better than Finley (cuz he cant block for anything), but I think that Finley's incredible athleticism will get him drafted first. I could be wrong.

    Surprise, Surprise...
    Spec thinks a Longhorn is overrated, and an Irish is underrated, go figure...
    Please step out from behind your agenda, so we can see who we're talking to...

    kinda J/K, but it IS funny, not to mention predictable from you...

    BTW, I don't know enough to have an opinion on Carlson, and don't necessarily disagree with you about Sweed, so take my comments for what they're worth...

    where do you have Lavelle Hawkins, Cal? really thought it was a mistake for him to come out early, but he looks ready. a natural #2 WR that seperates from defenders, excellent hands who catches everything & ability to stretch the field. :)
