Is he the superb run blocker that he is billed to be in the Buffalo press? Would you have preferred that he resigned with the Redskins?
I can tell you this. No way is he worth 49 mil.

Re: Tell me about Derrick Dockery - new Buffalo Bill

I'd say the best thing Dock has going for him is his size. At 6'6" 335, he was the biggest guy on our line. He's still young, so he'll probably improve with the right coaches.

He's definitely overpaid by last year's standards. However, the market has changed since then and nobody really knows what the appropriate market value should be, just yet. It might turn out to be a reasonable deal. I'd just be worried about him not improving -- or even digressing.

Also, I agree that he is the 3rd best lineman. People are saying he's the worst of the 5 but I would rank them like this (just on 2006):

1. Samuels
2. Thomas
3. Dockery
4. Jansen
5. Rabach

I'm eager to see more from Wade.

I would be interested to see how you all rate them.
70Chip, great points on your ranking. Samuels and Rabach had to over-compensate for Doc, and as you state, Rabach is clearly the 5th best b/c of all of his false starts. Doc & Jansen could have flipped places, but still, very good assessment. I agree, Doc is not worth paying a lot for that muffler! Jansen has slid considerably since his surgery a couple of years ago. His mind is willing, but his legs and feet aren't cooperating. He will be terrific as a smooth TV presence when he retires.

Here's how Scouts Inc. ranks our offensive line:

Samuels 85 (outstanding player)
Jansen 77 (solid starter)
Thomas 74 (good starter)
Rabach 72 (good starter)

And Dockery ranks 65 (adequate starter)
It's amazing to me how these professional scouting services, and league people in general, rank Randy Thomas there. That guy is a superstud and doesn't get anywhere near the credit he deserves.

I think he might be a tad overrated in Redskins' fans eyes. But I would probably bump him up a bit here perhaps to an 80.

Re: Tell me about Derrick Dockery - new Buffalo Bill

what i dont really understand is why the bills are spending so much to improve their offensive line if their planning on trading Mcgahee anyways. It seems kinda counter productive to invest so much and trade away your featured back especially when he's dramatically more talented than your back up. Unless they think the "A-train" is as good as say Betts, but from what i've seen thats far from the case.

They might be considering using their 1st round pick on a running back. Maybe they're hoping A. Peterson will fall to them, or maybe a trade up to draft him.

They have a young qb so I'm sure that has something to do with it.
