    'They' say it usually takes 3 to 4 years to really judge a team's draft class. Now it's 3 to 4 months?

    Top 5 drafts IMO (In no particular order)
    49ers
    Eagles
    Texans
    Packers
    Cardinals
    who do you guys think had the worst draft? I think Chicago's wasn't very good along with the Bills.

    I would say the Cardinals probably had the best draft, at least how things look right now. The Texans are a close 2nd then 3rd would probably be the Packers. I think the Browns, Rams, and Ravens also had quite solid drafts top to bottom. Many other teams had a couple solid picks at the top of the draft (anyone picked in the top 2 rounds should be a solid player) but didn't impress me much with their mid-late round picks.

    I might get blasted but it wouldnt be the first time.

    I think the J-E-T-S had a great draft. They picked up DBrick, Mangold, plus a QB of the future in the second round.

    I also think The Flaming Thumtacks did great. They picked up Vince Young and what some people considered to be a potentially better Pro USC RB then reggie. Even if you don't like them, you have to admit they did very well.

    I also think the Niners, Cardinals, and Texans(especially with DeMeco!) had very good drafts.

    The Bills easily had the worst draft at this point. Pitts draft pick isn't looking too great either though right now.

    Agreed: Always a brick fan. If the reports are true made a move for tinkerbell butt, and got the best LT prospect off the board in a very long time instead. Followed up with the highest rated center in a while. They are set up to cherry pick the RBs next draft. That line should be barreling by '07. All of mine are already posted, no sence in repeating...Liked what Dallas did also. Picking up Rod Wight in the seveneth was very shrewd of Sabin. IR the guy this season. End up with second round tallent for a seventh round pick in '07. Pretty dang smart.

    Fair enough...

    Dallas had the best draft...and it's not even close.

    1st Round - Bobby Carpenter - Will become the next Chris Spielman.
    2nd Round - Anthony Fasano - Mark Bavarro clone...only better.
    3rd Round - Jason Hatcher - Leon Lett...without the drug problems.
    4th Round - Skylar Green - Dante Hall wishes he could be as good returning kicks.
    5th Round - Pat Watkins - Merton Hanks...on steroids.
    6th Round - Montavious Stanley - Best DT in the draft because his first name is so long.
    7th Round - Pat McQuistion - He's Irish...that's got to account for something good.
    7th Round - EJ Whitley - He did a lot of pass protecting at Tech...that'll help us a ton.

    Crazy am I? Prove to me those player won't/will bust.

    The Titans .... and if you disagree then you didn't watch college sports last year

    LenDale: 1300 yards, 24 TDs (most in NCAA)
    Vince: 6th best winning percentage in NCAA history (.938)
    Can't argue with that..................

    Skyler Green is amazing. I went to LSU and got to see him in person. The guy always makes atleast two people miss when returning kicks. He's also a good receiver. I can see him becoming a Steve Smith type.

    I view the Titans draft as a boom or bust. They could have the best draft based on potential, or one of the worst. Can Young adapt well the the NFL game? Can he learn a Norm Chow offense? Is White's health going to be a factor short-term or long-term? They definitely swung for the fences with these two selections.

    I agree, but if you think about it the only real way you can judge a draft is by how the player played in college. And if you go by that, we had the best draft of any team. It's when people start to factor in "well maybe they won't work out" ... ANY player can not adapt to the NFL well. Mario Williams could be the next Courtney Brown ... who knows? That's why you've got to go on what they did in college.

    I've got to go with the Jets in my Top 5....They got the two best offensive lineman in my opinion.

    I think Pat Watkins is a greeeeat pick up in the 5th...and Skylar Green is another greeeeat value pick in the 4th. I dont really like their 2nd and 3rd rounders, and im not too high on Carpenter.

    Actually, I can (argue with that)... :)

    Vince Young - 6th most passing yards in NCAA history? You sure about that?
