Jordan Palmer

Yeah...Uhh I guess that means this draft is over. There are no other options left on the board than finding the right replica of a Pro Bowl QB.

Re: Jordan Palmer?

I like it too. Hopefully he gets a shot to earn Collins' job.

Re: Jordan Palmer?

So now when someone says "I think we should play the rookie" it means we're putting Palmer in?

Re: Jordan Palmer?

This was a not such a bad pick to fulfill the need for a young backup. It was a so so pick. Brunell is gone next year, who knows about Collins. Only thing that worries me is the worst case scenario and JC doesn't work out. This guy from what the Fox scouting report says locks on to one guy and throws floaters deep. 64 career INTs is not a good sign. We should have traded all of our remaining picks(rounds 5-7) for more 2-3 rounders next year, then get a young backup that might actually have a chance to do a decent job for us or even start if the JC experiment fails. Dumbass draft all around now.

Re: Jordan Palmer?

Being Carson's little bro, he's got it in his blood for sure. I like the pick as well. I suspected we might snag a QB with one of those 6th rd picks.

Re: Jordan Palmer?

Definitely a project pick. Let him develop in NFLE and on the practice squad for a while. Maybe we could even move Brunell in June if someone gets hurt. Bramlet's not really burning it up in NFLE.

Re: Jordan Palmer?

Geez, not one DE or DT. You would think they would have at least drafted one low ender just to get some youth for depth. If the geezers go down we are screwed, totally screwed on D line this season.

Re: Jordan Palmer?

I like the pick with are aging backup QB's. I would have liked a DE/ DT somewhere, but it looks like we'll be looking in FA.

Re: Jordan Palmer?

The more I look at it, I REALLY like this pick. He's 6-6, 231 lbs, and he played some WR in high school, so he's gotta be really athletic. This past season he was 7th in the country in yds/gm, and completed 66% of his passes for 3600 yds and 26 TDs. Could be a solid backup for us. Look at his profile (he looks exactly like Carson):

Re: Jordan Palmer?

Did anyone see that Ben Patrick was picked one pick before us?

Re: Jordan Palmer?

This feels like one of those picks that will leave us scratching our heads for years to come (see: Sage Rosenfels)

If this guy ends up with as much playing time as Sage it is a good pick.

Re: Jordan Palmer?

I like this pick as well, during his selection process it was said that many of the INT's he threw were not all his fault. It was also said he's not very mobile, but if you watch the short hightlight package put together on him, you may beg to differ.

I can't post a link right now, but if you go to Yahoo Sports/Wash. Redskins, there's a short highlight clip on all our draft picks except the TE from Mich.

Will someone please post the link so all can view.

Re: Jordan Palmer?

How could we not draft any d lineman after having only 19 sacks last year. Palmer might be a solid backup...big deal. We didnt pick up an offensive guard either. The two major questionmarks we had this offseason were d-line and o-line and how do we address that? By not picking any o-line or d-lineman in the draft...brilliant!

To top it off linebacker seemed to be our most stable position as a whole beside running back, yet we draft two linebackers back to back in the late rounds.

And why did we draft the TE from Michigan...he probobly would have been undrafted and we could have used that pick on either of our lines.

I would have taken Tarrell Brown at CB versus Sartz in the case we didnt take a lineman...Springs will be gone next year this could have been his replacement.

I think H.B. Blades will be a decent pro but we have holes that did not get filled. I am also a little worried about Landry because he seems to be almost an exact Sean Taylor clone. I love Taylor but I do not know if two players that are so similiar can play side by side. Taylor struggled in coverage and Landry is even less strong in coverage.

My only hope is that I am completly wrong about all of this, but I am scratching my head after this draft. Hopefully we are done dealing our picks for nothing.

And would anyone have objected if we offered the Raiders a third round pick next year for Randy Moss? I dont know if we could afford him but I think he is worth the gamble, this is the type of trade that works in teams favors. New Engalnd is not Oakland and Moss will do great things their.
