Who do you think had the best draft?

Im gonna divide this thread into two categories, best picks (best players gotten in this draft), and best draft (best overall draft including trades and such). I think that cleveland had the best picks getting 3 top 15 talents in Joe Thomas, Brady Quinn, and Eric Wright with the 3, 22, and 53 picks. Atlanta also got good players who all could have gone in the first round in Jamaal Anderson, Chris Houston, and Justin Blaylock.

I think that NE had the best draft securing a high 1st (maybe, SF might be good next year) next year, a high 3rd round next year (the raiders will def suck), a high 4th rounder (which was traded for Moss), and a 7th rounder (which the Pats might get a good player because they draft better than anyone). Basically, their draft next year will be bombing as opposed to the weak draft class of this year where they couldnt get that great players, and they also got a great safety to one day replace Harrison in Merriweather. My only concern with the Pats draft was they got 2 character issue guys in Moss ands Merriweather, although very talented, these guys have issues and might mess up team chemistry. Dallas also had a good draft while essentially trading a 3rd and a 5th for a 1st next year.

Cleveland and San Fran imo. And I hate to say this, but the Cleveland-Dallas trade could turn out to be excellent for both teams, Cleveland might have the qb of their future, and Dallas probably secured a top ten pick for next year in addition to the one they already have.

Re: Who do you think had the best draft?

Future draft picks aside and on paper, I would say ATL, hands down. Read the profiles on most of these guys and you'll see why.

1 Anderson, Jamaal DE 6-6 279 Arkansas
2 Blalock, Justin OT 6-4 329 Texas
2 Houston, Chris CB 5-11 185 Arkansas
3 Robinson, Laurent WR 6-1 193 Illinois State
4 Nicholas, Stephen OLB 6-1 232 South Florida
4 Milner, Martrez TE 6-4 256 Georgia
6 Lewis, Trey DT 6-3 318 Washburn
6 Irons, David CB 5-10 188 Auburn
6 Datish, Doug C 6-4 302 Ohio State
6 Stone, Daren SS 6-3 218 Maine
7 Snelling, Jason RB 5-11 232 Virginia

Weird. Atlanta was on my list of candidates for worst draft. DL was a need, but Anderson screams overrated talent. I wouldn't be surprised at all if he's not starting caliber. I'm glad we didn't take him. Blalock is big and slow. I'm not sure how well he will adjust to the next level. A lot of people in the know seem to think Houston is highly overrated.

I like the Milner pick, but Crumpler is already a very solid blocker. Datish might be a steal, but the rest of these picks seem like golddigging.

This isn't a great draft.

I'm scratching my head now. Not saying that you believe this but, if ATL shouldn't have taken Anderson at 8th overall, why should we have taken him at 6th just to fill a need? I agree. As mush as Anderson resembles Julius Perppers his build (muscle definition) and his game doesn't. Blalock did well at the combine and is likely a better prospect than his Texas counterpart Dockery. Houston wasn't drafted too high so there's value there.

I forgot to add that Arizona had a great draft. Levi Brown, who I think they valued over Joe Thomas, Alan Branch, who was initially predicted to be a top 10 lock, and Buster Davis who is a hard hitting solid linebacker.

Re: Who do you think had the best draft?

Best drafts:

Cleveland-Quinn and Thomas were the top two guys on my board. IMO, this could be the greatest first round duo in history. Time will tell if they would have been in position next year to land Henne or Brohm in the first round, but the year of NFL experience that Quinn will have over them between will make a big difference between now and 2010.

Houston-Amobi Okoye at #10 is highway robbery. I think some of the value that is Matt Schaub has to be considered in this draft for them.

Arizona-They only had 5 picks, but they got Levi Brown, Alan Branch, and Ben Patrick in that haul. Buster Davis and Breaston aren't slouches either.

Jacksonville-Slid down and still landed Reggie Nelson in round one. Derek Landri was a huge steal on day 2 and by this time next year will be capable of replacing either Stroud or Henderson on a temporary basis and provide instant pass rush.

Kansas City-Landed a guy who has just as much potential as Calvin Johnson in Dwayne Bowe. Appear serious about improving the defense by grabbing two day 1 DL (Turk McBride, Tank Tyler).

Philadelphia-Kolb and Abiamiri will both be great NFL players. Kolb projects to the NFL even better than McNabb did--he will still have to wait his turn though.

We shouldn't have taken him.

We nailed down the best two defensive prospects perfectly in Okoye and Landry. IMO, we just chose the wrong one for our team.

Sf / Cleveland / Atlanta / Denver / Oakland . I do not like the Falcons , but I wouldn't be suprised if Anderson is a hell of a player . Denver may have a major improvement rushing the passer , Oakland may have two major steals in Moses and Bush . At this point , all of these drafts are ranked on paper ,,,,,, we shall see .

Moses and Bush were pretty solid steals, but I would have ranked their draft a lot better if they had been the ones who traded up for Quinn at 22 and Russell had gone to Cleveland early. That's a crazy, crazy financial difference.

Man, wouldn't that be a story -- I think more than anything else, what doomed Quinn was that more teams were actually solid with their quarterback situation than ever before.

There were questions about his accuracy, but you would think the fact that he was groomed by Charlie Weiss might have given him more of an edge than he actually got.
