Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Next two picks should be DT and DE

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

You know, this may sound silly but I think the Durant pick may end up being the best pick for us. Serisously. Hear me out.

Last year Frost was pretty good, but he had a lot of punts returned for good yardage. I would chalk that up to hang time issues. Our defense constantly started on a short field as a result. This pick may help out a great deal on the defensive side of the ball.

I wonder what was our opponents average starting field position after change of possesion?

I just don't think we're going to get anything of value from those positions this late in the draft.
So if we are to go for those positions, go get the biggest badasses you can find and coach them up for a year or two then let them loose.

Booty is overrated. Brennan is a quality player that just needs little coaching to be special.

Funny you say that - I have Lionel Dalton DT from Arizona as the highest rated player left. I think he would be a great value in the 7th.

I would like to see us at least pick up someone in the 7th. Maybe Jason Jones, Jeremy Geathers or Marcus Howard.
Vinny & Snyder have said that they are comfortable with Marcus Washington & Chris Wilson as pass rushers. But I want a LB for a safety factor in the 7th

You are very clearly a Hawaii fan or just a big Brennan fan because you are pushing him. The truth is, he will probably never be a starter unless the person in front of him gets injured. I just can't see him being a quality QB in the NFL.

Booty is overrated??? I'm not so sure about that. You don't start at USC for two years if your not good. If anything Colt Brennan is waaaaaaay overrated. Name me one QB that has come out of college running a run and shoot offense that has made it in the pros? What ever happened to Timmy Chang? Those guys just never seem to be comfortable getting under center and adjusting to the NFL game. He looked terrible at the All Star games and he looked even worse against Georgia. I would've taken Andre Woodson.

Re: The official 2008 draft discussion thread

Diet Pepsi Machine still hasn't been drafted, we could take him and plug him in at linebacker until Rocky heals.

I don't know what we're going to go for since I've been wrong this entire draft lol, but I hope they don't get cut like every 7th rounder from the Gibbs years.

We haven't had the best special teams...I'm not a big fan of Frost, so I'm really on board with this kid.

Look on the bright side, we won't be seeing Derrick Frost boot a 59 yarder in a meaningless game, and then the game is on the line and we absolutely need to pin them back we won't be seeing him punt a 29 yarder.

I will absolutely admit I am a closet Hawaii fan, and a big Brennan fan. But I seriously doubt ANY person on this site has watched Brennan more than I have, and being a former QB (granted NAIA div1, but a qb none the less), I do know a little about the position.
I'm not saying he's polished, nor is he NFL ready...but some coaching and some clip board carrying will do this kid wonders.

You need to ask yourself why Zorn was so high on him, and considering Zorn is a former QB, he obviously sees something some of us don't.
