Re: Draft News for the Warpath

I don't think there are any realistic trade down opportunities available. Teams will usually only trade into the top 5 for a QB, and this is not a good year for top QBs. Bradford should go 1, and Claussen should be around until at least 8.
I believe we are stuck with the #4 pick regardless of who is on the board.
I just hope we get Okung; I hope he is there, and we draft him.

Re: Draft News for the Warpath

Some morons ruining their draft stock:

NEW YORK (AP) -- FoxSports.com is reporting Southern California tight end Anthony McCoy tested positive for marijuana at the scouting combine.

FoxSports.com cited unidentified sources and reported Sunday night that Priority Sports and Entertainment, which represents McCoy, made every NFL team aware of the failed test result about two weeks ago.

McCoy is considered a possible second- or third-round pick in this week's draft.

FoxSports.com also reported Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer tested positive at the combine for amphetamines because he was taking prescription medication.

A person familiar with Dwyer's test told the AP the result was not a surprise and teams knew Dwyer was taking medication that would trigger a positive for amphetamines. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because results of the test were not supposed to be made public.

Dwyer is projected to be drafted in the first two rounds.

This is very similar to the 2008 draft. You have one guy guranteed to go in the top 5 (Ryan/Bradford), one mid round guy (Flacco/Clausen), 2 second rounders (Brohm-Henne/Tebow-McCoy), and a lot of developmental guys after. 2009 was actually pretty bad for QB's after Stafford, Freeman, and Sanchez. Pat White was the next QB selected and that was as a Wildcat QB. After that the Cowboys selected some random guy from Texas A&M in the fourth round.

Why Okung? other than the fact that the mock draft pundits all say we'll draft him?

I think that Okung is the only solid LT prospect in the draft. In my opinion, Bulaga and Williams are better suited to RT. Brown, Davis, and Campbell have high risk.
After Okung, who I believe is head n shoulders above everyone else in this draft class, I think Rodger Saffold has a better chance to be a quality starting LT then the rest.
Okung is the only plug n play Left Tackle in this draft, and the only lineman worth a top 10 pick, IMO.

Re: Draft News for the Warpath

Ah who here longs for the the good ole days of VC at the helm? (please allow 5 seconds for head asploding if you shouted ME)

@Doug_Farrar: /head asplodes RT @dcsportsbog On Baltimore radio, Vinny Cerrato makes fun of Ditka for trading his draft picks away.

Doug_Farrar

/head reassembled, asplodes again. RT @dcsportsbog Cerrato just called Trent Williams an underachiever.

Well, he's not the first person to call Trent Williams an underachiever...though I don't agree with that assessment

If it's something that he has to take in order to maintain being healthy it's probably no big deal.

EDIT: here's the link.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' Jonathan Dwyer tests positive at combine - ESPN

He's been taking those meds since 5 because of his ADD, and the NFL knew about it before the combine, and it also falls under their "medical exemption" category because of it.

But Anthony McCoy's just an idiot

I wouldn't think so either, but did anyone think Orakpo would be at 13? Some non qb will slide way down, it will be interesting to see who.

I was right on 4 out of 5.

But #2, reinforces that Kiper has more inside scoop than McShay. On a side note Mel and McShay were going at it today again about Clausen, McShay said Clausen falls out of the top ten, Kiper said no way. I'm betting with Kiper on that one.
