    The Mike Williams pick was questionable but think how good their offense will be with those 3 recievers and Kevin Jones. Harrington has no excuse this year if he does poorly, they have one of the best recieving bunch in the league. Dont forget Marcus Pollard too..

    Matt Jones is a boom or bust pick IMO, if he does well they are praised if he cant make a smooth transistion then it was a wasted pick. He has lots of potential but he has never been a reciever so it may end up blowing up in their face. I think Drew Bennett has been the best transistion player as of late and if I am not mistaken the guy that coached him at Tennessee is now one of the Jags assistants.

    Is Matt Stevens the big TE/QB that Tory Holt said needed to lose weight?

    I am so confused...are you talking about the horrible FS that the texans had Matt Stevens or the QB/WR/TE Matt Jones from Arkansas that the Jags drafted? :confused:

    What makes me mad is that we could have moved back in the mid twentys and we could have gotten a first round pick next year. Why didn't we?

    I'd say either Chris Spencer to the Hawks or the Lions taking Williams, they had way more needs than another WR. But thinking of them in a few years when all the contracts are adding up and they are in cap hell brings a smile to my face. :heh:

    there are at least a dozen questionable picks, we'll just have to wait & see how they play out. Biggest gasp had to be Mike Williams going to Detroit, biggest risk Matt Jones #21 (guess Reggie Williams is not working out) & biggest reach was Oakland trading up to get Fabian Washington just because of his combine speed :confused:

    When you get right down to it, Matt Jones probably does not go in the
    first round without his combine speed. I know he was a tremendous football player at Arkansas and as QB led his team to many victores. But had he run 4.6 something instead of around 4.4, he probably doesn't get near the media and team attention and do we really think the Jags or anyone else takes him in round 1 ? He's a very impressive athlete and tempting to
    take, but he will play a position he's never played before. And there is really
    very few assets more valuable to an NFL team than its #1 Draft pick. He might be great, but its still a huge risk to take with such a valuabe asset.

    Because the team behind us, i forgot who it was, was very interested in T.J. and since he was Dom and Charlie's guy they didn't want to risk loosing him.

    to me the most questionable pick was Troy Williamson at #7 I couldnt believe Minnesota didnt take Mike Williams i guess they wanted vertical passing speed more than a big reciever that has exceptional hands and body control.

    I agree there with the Minn. pick. I was a bit confused. Culpepper seems to like to throw it up from time to time and no better to do that with than a M. Williams.

    Detroit are dopes when clearly there is a big need to improve that defense especially at LB.

    As far as TJ goes I'm not convinced we wanted him. I think our jaws dropped when carolina took T. Davis b/c that picked kinda took me as well with carolina having much greater needs.

    It was almost impossible to move DOWN in this draft don't ya'll agree? I mean it seems like NOBODY wanted to move up.

    Completely agree here, didn't Jacksonville draft him? Its not like its someone with no holes to fill that has the room to take a chance on the kid. They have obvious problem areas on that team which could have been filled in the first round, and choose instead to take the longshot?

    I was surprised by the Saints pick of the O lineman.

    I agree there WWJD. That was a bit shocking but what was said about the pick was that they got him so they could put newberry inside at guard where he originally plays.

    The more QUESTIONABLE pick out of the big easy was Adrian McPherson....????

    Clarrett to the Broncos in the third was a bit shocking as for the 1st round Matt Jones has a huge upside but I think 21 was a bit early, can't believe he went before Clayton.

    If Mike Williams had fallen to 13, and we drafted him, would this board have erupted like it did when we didn't take DJ? :hmmm:
