    Im calling it now. Keep this one bumped. Something will happen at the end of the year, and all the mock drafts will have DBrick going 1 or 2 picks higher than us. Than on draft day, he will magically fall into our hands. I bet we drop down or pass on him and take someone else entirely.

    As long as its a LT, I'll be happy. We do have a good draft record in the top ten.

    S. Taylor did not "fall to us", he was taken by the Skins at their pick.

    no.. we will have the #1 overall pick.. and we will take Reggie Bush.. leading to a HUGE arguement with people saying:

    "Reggie Bush is the next Barry Sanders.. it may seem stupid now, but if we hadnt taken him, you would be kicking yourself in a few years."

    and people will make comparisons to Sam Bowie being drafted #2 above Michael Jordan.

    Then on the other side of the arguement there will be people saying:

    "OMG how can we possibly not draft a tackle when David Carr broke the single season sack record AGAIN!?! Since 2002 we have needed a better Oline and we keep ignoring it. The 2006 season is already doomed to fail"

    define failure :confused:

    unhappiness

    hate

    fear

    Grid you may have passed over to the dark side, you must re-focus the good in your heart and find forgiveness to lessen the fall :bomb:

    Yeah then in 5 years we will be saying "why did we take Reggie Bush who is out of the NFL due to injuries when we could have had a perennial pro-bowler LT"

    I think lineman have injuries, too. We should trade out the number one spot and pick up multiple picks. We will find good lineman in the mid to late first. I think we can still get reggie like at the number four or three spot. I expect to see Mcniel fall out the first, and othe than Brick and Scott, I don't see much first round lineman. I say we play this draft in the second round and secure at least 3 second round picks to pick up first round talent........

    1) Pope
    2) C. Carpenter
    3) Huff

    Scott is not even a top 3 lineman in this draft. Scott is likely a road-grater RT. The LT prospects Ferguson, Winston, Thomas. Those guys right now are the top 3 prospects at LT. Ferguson and Winston are clearly the cream of the crop will both likely be quality players.

    I dont want Scott, he just does not impress me.

    Winston's ratings, up to just recently, had been pure speculation on how close he could come to pre-injury performance.

    I can see us with the 1st pick and then trade down to like #4 and getting D'Brick.

    Then with the extra picks we will waste them and draft a RB and a punter or something stupid.

    the Texans shouldnt mess around too much with their top spot. Take the LT and move on with the rest of your draft.

    I think REGGIE BUSH, is this year's ST and DJ. The sane thing is to either take Ferguson or trade down a few slots and take Winston or Scott, and get another high pick. The "fancy" pick (like ST and DJ) is to take Reggie Bush.

    I think that there is a big difference. The ST and DJ pick were not really fancy picks... they would have been smart picks, we needed players at those positions. I think that the Reggie Bush pick is a dumb pick, not because he wont be good, but because we already have a very solid RB and it would be wrong to draft another play maker and expect them to produce behind a horrible offensive line.
