And while we're not picking everyone else in the league is getting more depth, adding young talent. Kind of ticks me off. Maybe we'll give up all of next years draft for a couple more picks this year. I really think that the FO realizes this, though. I don't think you'll see the skins trading away draft picks like they are nothing anymore. Our team has the potential to become old quick.

Re: Ole Miss MLB Patrick Willis

April is getting closer...

I'm starting to hope more and more that we trade down and grab a handful of prospects. It's really looking we're in good shape on offense, and w/ some extra depth @ the secondary and d-line, we'll be much more consistent.

Watching the play-offs this year really shows how bad of a team we we're last year, but it was almost as if our problems began to disappear towards the end. We've got some nice momentum the players can take into camp, and barring any major set-backs... I'm cautiously optimistic.

Did you follow him in school too? A friend showed me a highlight last year of him and I started following him. I love his attitude, leadership qualities, hitting power, and instincts. He's not as sexy as some LBs who run faster, but he'd be a great addition if we trade down.

Re: Ole Miss MLB Patrick Willis

I saw Ole Miss play twice this year (once in person) and one time last year. He's a fine linebacker. I'm not sure he fits the Gregg Williams mold because speed is not his main asset, but he can play. If he gets with a team that uses his skills well in their scheme, he will have a fine NFL career.

And, yes, I am still in shock that we go from the 6th overall pick to the 5th round. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20.
I still don't understand why we'd go after two WRs in one offseason. I wanted Randle El myself, and was hoping we'd get him in free agency. So I was really depressed after we gave up 2 picks to get Lloyd, who in my opinion is an inferior player. I was wondering what was wrong with just outbidding everyone for Randle El, and calling it a day in Free Agency.

After we did overpay for Randle El, I went from depressed to utterly confused. Yeah, Randle El is more valuble than Lloyd, but once you trade for Lloyd you have to pull the offer to Randle El. Thats just common sense.

I know that we honestly didn't NEED either of them, but that Randle El brought PR skills that we could use and he could be the 2nd receiver in this offense.

I voiced that here when everyone was saying that Lloyd was going to be the no. 2. I thought Randle El fit the offense better and I was surprised that no one else saw this. Then we had the whole Rexi situation, he was obviously harsh on Lloyd, but he didn't offer any opinions that weren't substanciated by something. Lloyd's got a rep for making a circus catch one play and dropping an easy ball the next. He's been everything that was advertised here. I don't know what we as fans, or what the front office was expecting to get from the guy.

To me, the inexcusible move this offseason was spending 24 mil in guarenteed money and 2 mid round picks on two wide recievers who really aren't better at the position than the incumbent (Patten).

When GW asked for Archuleta and Carter, I can at least see what he was trying to do. The Carter signing goes against the philosophy that GW had used his first two years here, but I have to say that the concept of trying to change a defensive philosophy that was successful before it becomes stale and predictable is admirable, and shows a guy who is humble and values success. I think Grilliams is trying to move away from being so blitz dependant, and Carter helps with that Philosophy. Obviously his new scheme failed miserably, and it cost us a season. 10 months later, I still can't understand why we gave up so much for some mediocre offensive talent, and in that mind, that makes the move far worse.

End Receiver Rant.
