On a related note, take it for what it's worth but Culpeper is reportedly looking like the Daunte from his prime in Minnesota these days
That actually says a lot about their thought process. His knee injury a few years back was so severe, I'm not surprised it's taken a significant amount of time to get back to form. He's only a few months older than Tom Brady. He's got plenty of miles left.

I always liked Culpepper. I hope he does well.

Re: Report: Jason Smith is in Negotiations to be No. 1 pick

This is a mixed bag ever since last year. Before the draft I laughed at the Falcons for not taking Glen Dorsey. Now look at me I'm homeless and no one listens to me anymore in Flowery Branch. In fact they now do the opposite of what I tell them.

As much as I love the line the fact remains that QB is the most important position on the field. That ranking includes the Offensive Line as a unit. I've heard things about Stafford being a lot like Ryan and if thats true you really need to go for Stafford. I mean look at us last year. Did anyone here think Ryan was that special what with a high INT total and an NFL QB rating that I believe hovered around the low 80's his senior year?

I saw Ryan in person against VA Tech and thought he looked like the real deal. The guy just played like an NFL QB. He willed them to win the game.

It should be noted that the Lions are reportedly also negotiating with Stafford and Curry

Re: Report: Jason Smith is in Negotiations to be No. 1 pick

I think they're just being smart with trying to see who they can work a contract with before the draft. Didn't the Texans do the same thing with Bush and Williams a couple of years ago?

I think they are doing what any team with the #1 pick should be doing. It just looks smart b/c of the past history of mismanagement in that team.

Re: Report: Jason Smith is in Negotiations to be No. 1 pick

I think Culpepper is pretty serious. He lost about 20 lbs when he reported to camp. His teammates were calling him a "new man". He was playing at around 290 lbs despite his listed weight being much lower. I dunno, your QB doing that SHOULD have a positive effect on the locker room.

Good for him since he is arguably the third best tackle.

Sounds like my mindset when I hear "closing time".

The combine has been proven over and over again to be fools gold.

Re: Report: Jason Smith is in Negotiations to be No. 1 pick

at the number 1 spot, it's not a question of that team being willing to trade down, but more so, are there any teams who want to trade up and pay a gross amount of money to someone who has yet to play a down in the NFL.
