Re: Mock Draft Commentary

The Miami Dolphins will be thanking there lucky stars if M. Huff does fall to them at the #16 spot. Huff is a guy who can wear 2 hats, safety or corner. With Saban being a defensive minded coach where the secondary is said to be his specialty I am sure he can take what is already to be considered an elite saftey and turn him into a pro-bowl saftey in a couple of years...

You are right about the late round RB's being gems for the Broncos, but if you look at those late gems they were merely products of the system. Shanahan will now have a bonifide top choice back which combined with the system will take much stress off of Plummer and the passing game. Williams is not just a good runner he pretty much can do it all an effective blocker, runs well up the middle, can runaway from people and does a very nice job of receiving out of the backfield. We greatly understand the need to improve our WR group but we feel that we can satisfy that need later on in the draft. A RB the caliber of Williams comes along once in a while and when he is there you have to grab him...

They typically seem content to try to pair a strong secondary with a deep defensive line, and then just get average LBs with some speed. They have shown a tendency to draft WRs in the first round in the recent past (Freddie Mitchell, and then Reggie Brown just last year). They did sign Jabar Gaffney to pair with Reggie Brown and Todd Pinkston, but at this point I think Andy Reid knows that a playmaker would make a big difference for the Eagles.

Winston Justice would also be an attractive option for the Eagles if he falls to them. Runyan and Tra Thomas are both cemented at the T spots for now, but in the past the Eagles have not been afraid to spend early picks on depth, allowing the young guys to grow into their roles (Lito Shepperd and Sheldon Brown were both drafted while Bobby Taylor and Troy Vincent were still starters).
Schneed, TAF here with WPSN. Got a question about your Eagles. "Some of your players have expressed concerns about current conditions. To address this...will you be changing all the parking spots at the Linc to handicapped spaces?"

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

hey guys, so far so good no wtf moves yet.

miami got the best projected value thus far taking a top 10 player (huff) at 16 while also filling a primary need, and the raiders had the biggest stretch taking ernie sims at 10, but its not an unreasonable move by any means .

lets see how the rest of the draft develops. Big decision for MINN now, time to see if the unteted schaub is their answer.

Hi TAF, thanks for having me on. We don't plan on changing any of our parking spaces, however our medical staff is beefing up for the coming season. We've installed a Tram to pick players up from the parking lot and bring them into our practice/medical facility. We've hired more trainers and another team doctor. We anticipate our training room will be very busy after weeks 10 and 14 this coming season. To that end, we've added another procedure room to our medical facility, one dedicated entirely to treating impact injuries specific to Wide Receivers coming across the middle of the field. We're also trying to beef up our WR corps in order to withstand this punishment we expect to take during weeks 10 and 14 this year. We expect Chad Jackson to be battered, we expect Reggie Brown to be bruised, and this year we expect Todd Pinkston to actually break in half in the midst of a Safety Sandwich. We know the middle of the field is going to be a dangerous place for us this year during weeks 10 and 14, but we're doing everything we can to prepare.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

Hahahaha. Safety sandwich a la "Not Another Teen Movie"? I remember when I saw that scene, that's the FIRST thing I thought of. I was like, "Yup, Todd Pinkston".

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

And for anybody who actually doubted McNabb being a good QB, he's made Todd FREAKIN' Pinkston look good at times.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

I selected Sinorice Moss for the Vikings to begin to shore up a weakening WR corps. With the loss of Burleson, the Vikings needed some more young talent and Moss fits the bill perfectly.

The Vikings would be starting to have something similar to what Washington has going on for them.

Now just for someone to throw him the ball after Johnson leaves.

Just ask.

This question is for dmek25 regarding his selection of Winston Justice (The Warpath 2006 NFL Mock Draft) at the 13th pick for the Ravens.

Given the recent history of the franchise (with mulitple felony convictions), is there any room for Justice in the Baltimore locker room?

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

The Dallas Cowboys are absolutely ecstatic to see cornerback Tye Hill from Clemson fall into their laps at 18 overall. Hill is only 5-10, but his biggest asset is blazing speed, which is exactly what Dallas needs to match up with the Skins at WR.

Aaron Glenn remains on the roster but is showing his age. At the very least, Hill provides a solid nickel CB for this season, and should pair with Terence Newman for several years as the anchors in the Dallas secondary.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

jugg just took jimmy williams, making the bengals abort a trade up attempt and causing quite a bit of sadness.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

The KC Chiefs are happy to bring Mathias into to the organization. Coach Edwards feels that with his size and pass rush ability, Kiwanuka will help to bring pressure on opposing QB's that is essential to the cover 2 defense

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

With the exodus in NE they are left with few areas of obvious strength. Clealy Belichek can work wonders on defense and they still have a few play makers there so they decided to give their O some help. At 21 a pick on the OL is too early so we are left with skill players. The two most impactful players were Holmes and White. WRs are a dime a dozen in the 1st, and a big fgamble at that, so I decided to take White since Dillon is aging and White seems to have the potential to be a pro-bowler. He is big strong and has that ever sought after nose for the endzone. He takes some pressure off of Brady trying to pass to nobody. We'll get a WR later in the draft.
