Re: Skins stuck at No. 6?

IMHO, Griffin is absolutely dominant when healthy. Unfortunately, he's been injured a lot lately. If he's health again, I'm convinced he'll return to form.

I guess that's why you're the impatient optimist.
Unfortunately "what have you done for me lately" is the nature of pro sports today. Anyway, I'm not saying Griffin is done, although Salave'a might be. But the fact of the matter is Griff did have a bad year last year and he's 30 now, so it is an area where we can't afford to just stand pat. I do think Griff will have a better season this year, but I can't say that about Salave'a. And it's not really smart to rely on 2nd year players who were 5th and 7th round picks (Golston,Montgomery).

It always next years project to take the DL. You can always do it next year, every year. But until you ACTUALLY ADDRESS IT, you still have a problem.

Okoye is the best prospect since Tommie Harris. That's a 3 year wait for someone this good.

Stu, who's going to be better if we wait until next year?

Because if there is a prospect whos honest to god better than Okoye next year, why not take Okoye this year and that hypothetical player next year. Isn't that what Jacksonville did with Stroud and Henderson? I'd say they are sustaining their defense pretty well.

Uh...not just because i say so. Its because both have recouped from injuries, and now we have Salvae subbing out with Golston who will have a better year now that he's progressing into his second. U act as if im saying that our line is great or something. I believe the acquistion of CJ would be worth running with the same line as last year. I do Believe we will be better against the run with minor improvements in the linebacking corps and secondary. With your response I'd love nothing better than to say your wrong, yet i know that our tackles are a year older and Daniels has been fairly unproductive. The idea of CJ and Jason Campbell makes me willing to run with them another year...therefore is suggest to trade up

Re: Skins stuck at No. 6?

Anybody's guess..... we'll know in two weeks and two days for sure.
I still hope we find a partner and trade down. More Picks

This is where you and most Skins fans, along with me, differ. I just don't want to be subject to the same 4 guys again, only to find out midway through the season that we have no options for replacing them.

Golston will improve for sure, although he hasn't shown much to begin with.

I do not know much about Charles Johnson' career at Georgia, but I do know his draft stock has been falling. Do you know why, because that could be an important thing to know before we draft him?

Re: Skins stuck at No. 6?

At first we all wanted Allan Branch, then we wanted Gaines Adams, ESPN releases their aritcle on Okoye now we should draft him 6th? Has he actually replaced Gaines as the can't miss prospect? I don't know, seems as the national consensus is that Calvin Johnson is the truth. I don't want to defend not bolstering the line because we are sorely in need of help but no of us really no exactly how much it would cost to move up to 2 or 3. So wide reciever is not a pressing need, ok, but i don't want to walk away from the next Marvin Harrison with Randy Moss/Terrell Owens ability for a Tommie Harris. I should end by saying if the acquistion became to costly, ie. trading away a intergal part of the team then we should stand pat or trade back to bolster the D.

Re: Skins stuck at No. 6?

There's a split between DE-advocates and DT-advocates, but a lot of people have liked Okoye for a long time now.

And, while DTs are nowhere near as "sexy" as WRs, they're just as important. I'd prefer to upgrade our 31st ranked defense before adding to an offense that has Cooley, Moss, Portis, Betts, ARE, Lloyd, etc. If Campbell develops like people expect him to, we don't need another #1 WR. Finally, I don't like the idea of bumping Moss to #2.

Instead of being worried about adding more speed, our offensive staff SHOULD be worried about better utilizing the position players we have and one way to do this is to improve the blocking as much as reasonably possible.

But regardless of where our offensive problems lie, the use of the 6th pick on the DL is just common sense.

My point this entire time frame leading to draft day, has been hopefully we will Trade down and pick up, more picks.

However, I've also said if we stay at #6 Gaines Adams has a heck of an upside and ALL the tools to get it done. IMO if we stay at #6 he's the guy. I think DE would be my #1 choice, followed closely by a DT which would be my second choice.

For better or for worse, the front office is reportedly uninterested in Adams.

Just curious - According to who?

Around the time of the combine, I remember reading somewhere that Gibbs and Williams appeared to really like Okoye (and yes, I have been an Okoye backer from well before the ESPN article).
