Well at least we had the need for one. Dallas doesn't need a new kicker. At least not bad enough to justify using a 5th rounder.

I know, I know, I just like to poke fun at the Durant Brooks pick.

Dallas had a head scratching draft, and a big part of it was a function of how much they overpaid for Roy Williams. That LB they got with their first pick could be alright, but apparently he's more of a workout guy than a football player.

Re: Around The League: Whose Draft Was Most Impressive?

effin cowherd is sitting here saying that the cowboys are drafting for depth, had a great draft, will have at least 6 contributors, said they will be so much better than last year, even if they don't make the playoffs, cowboys didn't need to draft any stars.. umm they weren't in position to, unless they traded up, did he watch their war room feed? then he was bitching about skins fans e-mailing him

made fun of us for picking early instead of waiting the picks out.. but I heard we did talk about trade down scenarios, his bitch ass wasn't in the war room

Quit listening to that clown already. You can count on him doing anything he can to rile Redskins fans up. Everyone has panned the Cowboys draft so why would he do anything but the contrary other than just to get people's dander up? Save your brain cells man, listen to some jazz or something for those couple of hours. Your brain will thank you.

Re: Around The League: Whose Draft Was Most Impressive?

Teams talk throughout the draft, not just when they are on the clock. And of course they talk prior to the draft and line up possible trade scenarios. That's what makes Cowturd's take today even more laughable.

In addition, wasn't this the quickest first round in a long time? I guess a lot of teams drafted "too quick".

Cowturd = retard.

Cowherd is actually the defintion of Olberman's Worst Person on the Planet. No exaggeration, my 5 year has better insights into sports than he does. As long as he is employed by ESPN they should be ashamed.

He's still the only one praising the Cowboys' draft, everyone else is saying it was horrible, didn't fit what they needed, etc.. heh

Yeah the consensus seems to be that Dallas had a bad draft, yet Cowtard loves it. Figures.

Re: Around The League: Whose Draft Was Most Impressive?

Projecting out accurately is impossible so grading drafts is for the birds to me but with Dallas you can look past projecting and make a factual statement that they drafted someone, used an asset of great scarcity, on a player who has no chance to make the team. Zero. You don't draft a kicker when you already have an established one. There are two positions on the team that are singular positions in need of no depth or youth, punter and kicker. You draft one when you don't have a good one. When you do have a good one you don't draft another one. This isn't a philosophy this is a freaking fact. That is the dumbest draft pick in the history of football. No exaggeration. If they actually have a camp competition and Folk "loses" then we can all welcome our new kicker.

I thought Green Bay had a nice draft. We should pay attention to their waiver wire for OL.

Re: Around The League: Whose Draft Was Most Impressive?

As is the case almost every year, the Eagles, Giants, and Patriots appear to have had excellent drafts. My biggest surprise is that Scott Pioli didnt appear to have as good of a draft as i had assumed he would and the Bengals may have had the best draft of all... but then none of these players have stepped on the field. For all we know Orakpo will be the biggest bust ever and that projected UDFA safety the Raiders took in the 2nd will be defensive rookie of the year.

I think the 'Boys are staring 8-8 squarely in the face.
Or possibly worse. Their overall talent level is declining. They really needed to get it done when they were 13-3 a couple of years back.

Re: Around The League: Whose Draft Was Most Impressive?

Since I wasnt here for this thread I want to list a couple drafts I liked so I can look back and see if I was right.

Top 5 I liked....

1. Bengals - Andre Smith, Rey Maualuga, Michael Johnson, Chase Coffman, and Jonathan Luigs were all nice picks. Maybe the best draft ive seen since I started watching the draft in 1996.
2. Giants - Hakeem Nicks, Clint Sintim, William Beatty, Ramses Barden, Travis Beckum, Andre Brown, and Rhett Bomar were all nice picks where they were drafted. I really like Nicks and Beckum.
3. Browns - Alex Mack, Brian Robiskie, Mohamed Massaquoi, David Veikune, Coye Francies, and James Davis are all nice picks.
4. Cardinals - Chris Wells, Cody Brown, Rashad Johnson, Herman Johnson, and Will Davis were all nice picks. Wells should be OROY imo and a serious sleeper to look out for is Will Davis.
5. Raiders - People will call me crazy but I loved the DHB pick. The 2nd round pick of Michael Mitchell in round 2 is boom or bust but I liked his hard hitting style at Ohio.

Top 5 I hated.....

1. Bronocs - Passing on Brian Orakpo for Knowshon Moreno was stupid. Im so happy for us Skins fans they did. Robert Ayers in a 3-4 defense doesnt make sense to me. Trading their 1st round pick next year instead of the one they got fromCHicago to move up to get Alphonso Smith was funny. I like Smith but the Broncos pick might be top 5 while the Bears pick will be alot lower.
2. Chiefs - Drafting Tyson Jackson third overall was just perplexing to me. He better become a stud because they passed on alot of top tier talent for him.
3. Lions - I think Stafford was a huge mistake at #1 overall. I also think Brandon Pettigrew is overrated by a mile. No way I draft a blocking TE in round 1. Even more so when playmaking TEs slipped into lower rounds. Delmas was a nice pick but not over Rey Maualuga.
4. Bucs - I really think Josh Freeman was a really risky pick.
5. Vikings - The Percy Harvin pick was too high for my liking.
