Draft News (4/25) - 20 NFL guys rank RBs, steelers want to trade up, Texans cheap

NFL | 20 NFL personnel men rank draft-eligible running backs
Mon, 24 Apr 2006 18:30:48 -0700

The Detroit Free Press reports 20 NFL personnel men ranked the running backs on a 1-to-5 basis for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. They used a system where a first-place vote was worth five points, a second-place vote worth four points and so on. USC RB Reggie Bush came in first with 100 points. Memphis RB DeAngelo Williams finished in second with 61 points followed by LSU RB Joseph Addai in third with 38 points. In fourth place with 36 points was USC RB LenDale White and UCLA RB Maurice Drew placed fifth with four points.

Steelers | Team expected to try to trade up in first-round
Mon, 24 Apr 2006 22:09:41 -0700

Jim Wexell, of the Tribune-Democrat, reports the Pittsburgh Steelers have 10 draft picks for the NFL Draft, but do not have 10 openings. As a result, the team is expected to attempt to trade up in the first round of the draft. The team's director of football operations, Kevin Colbert, said, "We'll be open to use some of those extra picks for the possibility of moving, sure."

Redskins | Team not likely to trade up

Tue, 25 Apr 2006 07:16:54 -0700

Howard Bryant, of the Washington Post, reports Washington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs said Monday, April 24, that it was unlikely that the Redskins would attempt to move up from their spot in the second round of the NFL Draft. "Obviously, when you're at 53, you need to calculate who will be there," Gibbs said. "I think you could always move up, and when you get through with your final calculations you have to decide if it's smart. We've had some people talk to us about it, but it is not very likely we'll be able to do something."

Texans | Team still talking with M. Williams
Mon, 24 Apr 2006 16:44:21 -0700

ESPN.com's John Clayton reports the Houston Texans touched base with the agent for North Carolina State DE Mario Williams Monday, April 24, but nothing got done. There is a good chance nothing will get done before this weekend's NFL Draft. The Texans are offering Williams less than what the San Francisco 49ers paid QB Alex D. Smith last season. Williams will probably hold out to get more than Smith, so the Texans may have to choose between Williams and USC RB Reggie Bush without either having agreed to a contract.

Re: Draft News (4/25) - 20 NFL guys rank RBs, steelers want to trade up, Texans cheap

normally draft picks get 5% more over the same pick the year previous. So offering them less money is a joke (especially with a 10% increase in the salary cap).

the RB ranking i surprising that maroney doesn't show up at all. maurice drew got 4 points, so that means out of 20 people, a max of 3 rated him as the 5th best RB. I'm not high on him, but its mainly because I haven't seen him play and really don't know much about him. It's shocking to see addai get so many more votes than him though.

not necessarily in a rookie contract. a #1 overall DE will have a better impact in the first 1-2 years (where a new QB will be single-handedly losing you games). top DEs get 7-8mill a year, and top qbs get 10+mill, but in the rookie contracts the difference isn't as big.

But almost remember that A. Smith's deal was for six years with an option for a seventh year. Under the new labor rules, the most the first 16 picks can be signed for is six years, including the option year.

Wasn't Courtney Brown the last DE taken at #1? Anybody remember what they were saying about him at the time?

The Broncos were pretty good defensively last year, was he good too?
