Re: Mock Draft Commentary

With the loss of Steve Hutchinson. We felt we needed to fill a big hole on our offensive line. We've been scouting Max since day 1 and he has been near the top of our board through out workouts and the combine. We think we grabbed one of the most dominating linemen in the draft this year.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

As GM of the Titans, we were pleased that the Chiefs showed interest in our draft pick. This trade allows us the potential to pick up another athlete to compete on this team for a starting spot.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

The Steelers are old and thin at DE. Tamba Hali is a top talent DE with a non stop motor. He is a great worker and the type of blue collar player that Coach Cowher turns into stars. Many may think we should have used this pick on a WR because of Randel- EL leaving but our situation with Ward, Wilson, and Morgan is one we are comfortable with. We may add WR depth in a later round. Others might say we should have went DB. Our CB's are deeper than people give us credit for with Townsend and Taylor starting and second year guy McFadden and 3rd year Colclogh working in certain packages. Also we have Polamalu and Clark at S with Carter at backup. Hali fills the need of youth and a pass rusher for the DE position. We feel he will be a great player for our organization.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

Al Davis is hoping just for once, he gets someone to fall to him. Anyway, great pick by the Steelers.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

The Texans had a competition brewing for the first pick in the 2nd round. We were not excited about any of the available players, and relish the oppertunity to stockpile draft picks, not only this year, but next year also, and move down the board.

its reasonable... dallas probably wouldn't take a corner, KC is more likely to go DB, detroit might wait a year before drafting another QB (in which case Jimmy williams would have probably been the pick). Bengals might be more likely to take gabe watson, and indy would probably wait on an rb if addai was the best left by their pick (trade down, draft gilles, etc). Lawson, wimbley, and jason allen would have probably gone earlier too (though lawson is a great talent, he's a bit pigeon holed as a 3-4 OLB).

it could turn out exactly like it has too, those are some of the possibilities though.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

carolina was able to lock up two players which will fill their needs. Trading for houston allowed for the panthers to get bobby capenter to help with the defense, and they also added lawrence maroney to help the ground attck on offense late in the second round. Some may say they traded alot to get the 33rd pick, but with a solid team to begin with and the addition of these two guys theres not much more they can draft that will be better than what they already have.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

while CB is also an important need, I thin winston was the best available for the saints and he can pair with jammal brown for a really over-athletic duo at OT. Winston is a bit more of a project than i'd like, but his upside merits the investment, as his versatility (TE/OG/OT) is very enticing. It looks like 2006 is going to be a year to gain experience and find the best possible OL combination from the available pieces.

I really wanted to take mangold here, but since he was gone, some help to keep brees alive is sorely needed. stincomb can move to LG and leave only the C and CB position as a truly glaring need which will have to be filled.

Fairly accurate. I think some guys fell a lot farther then they will (Huff, Wimbley). No huge reaches really.

I think the problems with this draft aren't in trades that were made, but the trades that weren't able to be made because of a lack of quick communication.

But thats why its a mock.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

The Jets are excited to grab safety Darnell Bing with their #35 overall pick. Bing is a physical safety that plays the run well and has a good mix of size and speed.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

A lack of a physical and bulky DE, viable at this point in the draft, to play the run meant we needed to add at our other primary area of need: S.

With the Jets stealing Bing the Packers went for the next best option. Simpson is a superior athlete with good size. He needs to add bulk and work on discipline and technique but overall he has the most upside of any Safety in the draft outside of Huff.

Re: Mock Draft Commentary

With a depleted secondary, the niners selected a versatile DB to help revamp their defense. He is a fast safety who runs corner time (4.39) - 40 yard dash.
