It seems that every year there is a "hot" prospect that everyone wants to get: ST, DJ...me too, Bush... but there will always be one every year. Bush is a phenominal athlete and all around football player, but ask yourself, when was the last time there was a "hot" linemen prospect? Gallery? Elite linemen seem to come every three years on the average, while elite RB's seem to come 1-2 a year. This years LT's: D'brick, Winston This years RB's: Bush, D. Williams who is there next year you might ask? LT's: Joe Thomas if he stays in school RB's: Adrian Peterson...one of two people i am deciding between for next years draft, Lendale White, RB from UT. There will always be a top tier RB or three each year, but to find an elite LT is rare. Alex Barron was the best last year, and would probally be a second round draft pick this year. Ced. Benson, R. Brown, and Cadillac are all just as good as bush. Bush is very versitle and provides a different dimension with his ability to play WR you will argue. You will argue that DD is not an every down back, but then ask yourself, how many carries are you expecting bush to recieve? It will be argued that he will recieve touches at WR. We currently have 4 RB's on the roster: DD, Wells, Morency, Hollings. You say hollings is gone this year, ok that leaves you with: DD- long term contract that will have little trade value, Wells- a solid back up, also used for short yardage, and Morency- a third round draft pick from last year who will not be cut or traded. I'm going to assume that the next option for bush supporters would be to drop wells and hollingsand leave DD as a back up. Well, DD is not a big bruiser, short yardage back, and bush is even further from one. Wells must stay. "We can play DD at WR while bush is at RB" That is ignorant and blind love. DD is a generous 5'9 with minimal breakaway speed. He is not a WR. "Bush will get his chance at WR because he has the ability" We currently have at least 5 WR's on our roster who would make other teams rosters. "Bush will be our deep threat and force teams not to double AJ" We have mathis to do this. Mathis is faster and has better hands downfield. "Bush can be our slot guy then" IF we were to draft him, the last place i would want him would be the middle of the field. "Servicable OL will be available in the second round." What have we done with our second round picks? Guys might slide some, but not as much as you would like to believe. There are two, and only two elite LT prospects this year: Winston and D'brick. The rest are second and third tier OL guys, and have a better than average chance to be a bench guy. "We should take the best playmaker available" In most cases yes, but we have obvious needs that need to be filled before we worry about another playmaker. The way I see it is this: we have aj, carr, DD, and mathis. that equals 1 qb, one rb, and 2 wr, 1 kr. "A team like ours needs play makers, not linemen." We have enough offensive playmakers to be a playoff team. Dont waste 1st round picks like detroit. Who are the best teams around the league? Steelers, Seahawks, Bears, Colts. All of the teams forementioned have an average number of playmakes except for the colts who never were able to be sucessful, even with their abdundence of playmakers, until they built a defense and a solid OL. The most sucessful teams have maybe one or two superstars on their teams, and a great OL in common. i will post more later. i know this is quite a read, but hopefully i've made my point and turned some heads. let me know what you think because this took some time to write.
