Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

I found this to be pretty intersting especially for those wanting a QB in the second round or beyond......

OK those that feel like we should draft an OL over a QB at #4 - interesting stuff regarding QBs and the Draft - EXTREMESKINS.com

No, Walter doesn't just run a football site, he also go's to the combine, he go's to the senior bowl pracitces and games. He talks and interviews with the players...he's got a lot more insight than you think. And when he say's somebody is a can't miss prosepect...he's usually spot on.

Toot there is no such thing as a cant miss prospect. And if it were possible to identify one then there would never be any busts in the 1st round of the draft. However, if walter is the one person that posseses this crystal ball then his talents are being wasted on that website.

That is not to say that i would be unhappy if we end up with Clausen.

I liked this tongue in cheek summation:

Which is really the point. If high draft position is what makes the player, and not the other way around, then why the heck would anyone pass on Tebow in the top five?

Maybe the Skins FO should fire the scouting department and just read his stuff.

hell if we did that the past few drafts...other than last years where Brian Orakpo was a gem where we got him, we'd no doubt be better off!

Re: At what point would you Trade Up to get Jimmy Clausen?

Not sure of the numbers, but haven't we only drafted 2 pro bowl players in the draft in the past 8 years? Orakpo, and Cooley? That'd be a nice way to evaluate draft success....which teams have drafted the most pro bowl caliber players in the past so and so years.

Sean Taylor also made two Pro Bowls, RIP.

How far back do you want to go? Go back to 2002 (8 years) and there are only three or four NE Patriots drafted since then that have made the Pro Bowl.

Anyway, I know all about Walter. I think he's done a great job with his website. I don't think he's any sort of Nostradamus with his picks, but then...who is.

^ I love Walter's site for its wealth of information. Sometimes Walter has some very intelligent analysis, too. However, sometimes things he says just make me scratch my head.

4th - Okung

Why would we invest our who draft in the OL when we have other needs?

2 out of 5 isn't our whole draft, and we would invest our top picks, because right now we don't have an NFL caliber LT or RT on our roster. So we could conceivably use our 1st two picks to fill our two most obvious needs.

With that said, I hope and expect that somehow we will get a 3rd round pick, and possibly another 4th. And that if that happens, we would use our 2nd round pick on one of the qb's, preferably Colt McCoy.

After drafting Bradford and finding out he wants Jimmy to be his personal assistant.
