They still have us taking Jamaal Anderson?
Sorry drafter, I think I am the only one here who is excited by this pick.
That has to be one of the worst mock drafts I have viewed yet. Yea, like us fans want to use a 1st rounder on the D Line for the hundredth time in a row... That is like detroit taking WR's every year and we all know where that got them...
Here is this guy's quote on us taking him...
I'm excited about it. Get some pressure form the other side...be nice.
The other possiblity excites me also. All Day or Lynch gets pumped up before the draft and we get a offer they can't refuse. Bush and VY couldn't generate a trade. May be these guys will generate some interest and we get Anderson also.
i am kind of excited about getting jamaal anderson. we all know the saying, "defense wins championships". anderson and williams give us one great, young pass rush. that's exciting, plus this draft is deep at offensive skill positions... i really liked this mock draft, overall!
Wow, did Cris Houston fly up his board or what ? And...Branch isn't quite the
stiff some of the all day/Landry guys are making him out to be. He's holding a top ten grade. Washington takes him with their lone day one pick. That says something to me.
I'm with beerlover though some one falls in love with one of the players at eight we move down and pick up some picks and get Levi Brown also, I could live with that.
There are a lot of ways we can go...it boggles my mind to even think I know who we'd draft. Offensively I'd be okay with AP. what if brady quinn fell to us? jamarcus russel? I'd be ok with lynch only in a trade down. calving johnson not our most pressing need but prob. the best player in the draft. joe thomas of course, levi brown only in a trade down. thats about it on Offense.
Defense there are more possibilities. Safety, Corner back, D End, D Tackle, I'd probably be okay with at #8 LB I'd only be happy with Pat Willis in a trade down.
Landry, Nelson-much needed safety help, only 2 at #8
Hall, Revis-much neede cb help, instant starter
Adams, Anderson -help mario out and be a better pass rush
Branch-stop the run big time, take pressure off mario?
Even if Peterson is there for us we could potentially pass on him, I hope the browns take him or someone trades up for him so we can go defense and not be berated by every person in america again. I would love to have peterson but i'm afraid we'd pass on him anyways.
id like jamaal anderson also....
plus im guessing chris houstons measurables are wrong
yeah... they corrected chris houston's measureables... but i like the mock draft overall.
Two more words.
Last two words:
Offense, We have Mario, get Mario some push up the middle and some SS-FS that can cover, that will get you more sacks, we dont need this guy. AP, Dwayne Jarrett, Marshawn Lynch.
It's interesting that both Gaines Adams and Jamaal Anderson fall to us at eight...
Even though this mock has us drafting Jamaal Anderson, what kind of prospect is Gaines Adams? All i know is that he has the bigger name..
Both are premier pass rushers, Adams is 6'5" 270 and Anderson is 6'6" 280.
If Anderson was playing opposite Mario....that is 2 hefty DE's...very tough to run against....If Branch fell, would anyone be in favour of him over a DE?
A DL that looks like this would be scary against the run but maybe not quick enough against the pass
or would it be better
or would it be better
I'd rather have Gaines Adams, we already have a big DE now its time to bring in a smaller fast guy, but i dunno is gaines faster then jamaal?
the thing about Jamaal is he might be are julius peppers, or does he not have the fast twitch? haha
i like that one
wait until Houston works out at the combine and puts up more reps at the bench than half the offensive linemen there. I dont think its a long shot at all for him to go first round now that i'm seeing the hype.
So is the Babin fiasco over? If we are taking DEs, and Peek will be gone, we must be.
Adams is a true playmaker on defense. He single handedly saved the Wake Forest game. Wake Forest set up for the feild goald that would of put them up two scores, Adams blocked the kick, striped the holder who got the rickosay on the rebound of the ball and scored the go ahead touch down. Even at that I'd prefer the SEC sack leader myself. He is bigger. He runs just as fast and has a higher up side in MHO.
