Dude you have no idea.. Bailey is not better than DG. Maybe cuz you only saw a short part of DGs career There is a big gap between the 2 and DG is better.

Re: The Return Of Cb Stability

yeah, kinda thinking okoye might be the safer pick at DT than branch. I would like to see how many 225 reps adams does though, since there are a lot of concerns with his weight.

Re: The Return Of Cb Stability

Guys like Branch (massive DTs) ALWAYS see their stock tank. That shouldn't surprise anyone. The point is that guys like him are rare and can only be found in the quantity of approx. one per draft. Guys like Anderson and Adams--theres going to be pass rushing ends available in the draft next year and every year after that.

Branch and Okoye both have unique qualities about them (Branch=size, Okoye=age). If we pass on them, we won't necessarily have a chance to get a player like them in the future. We can get an end in 2008 most likely, maybe even one who is bigger and better for our system than the guys available now.

Draft stock means everything for the next 2 months, but nothing come May. Keep that in mind.

I think you are failing to grasp the concept of an average. Long runs happen to everybody. Giving up a lot of long runs only makes a low YPC or YPG average even more impressive.

The whole season of data is infinately more valuble than one game.

DTs tend to be around the 10-15 range, so yes, they will be there every year (though the true 3-4 NT types come slightly less than once a year). this is an especially weak class, which might actually boost their stock. almost every position comes out every year, and ngata (who came out last year) was/is a much better player than branch (imo).

I agree though that while the DEs are deep this year, none of them are extremely unique from the yearly rotation, but saying we can't get a DT if we don't get one now is wrong though. every year these guys get hyped up as the best ever, and every year there's free agency.

branch is a bit unique, but the most unique and hardest to find guy in this class is CJ by far. that's about it. branch has knocks for being lazy, and having almost no pass rushing skills. he is good at what he does though and can play as a run stopping DE too if needed.

btw, even though branch tries to compare himself to richard seymour, he's probably closer to a shaun rogers or henderson in what he does.

My problem with Branch is simple. He isn't a pressure guy. He is a block eater and run stuffer. Those guys are far easier to find(and cheaper too) than a good or better pass rusher. There are only several big time DTs in the league and really not a one of them is big time for being a run stopper. I am not minimizing what a run stopper does but looking at which position offers more scarcity; pass rushing DE wins by a big margin. The question becomes: Are either Adams or Anderson good enough DEs to be a better value pick than the more surefire Branch? I am not good enough of an evaluator to know.

See I'd totally disagree. Quality run stopping DTs are far more prevalent in the league than quality pass rushing DEs. Sure there are lots of highly ranked pass rushers every year but how many pan out? As far as DTs there are just more of them. Hell even Joey Sal was a monster for us if only for a year. His age and health have betrayed him some and now he is just average or worse.

To me it comes down to whether Adams or Anderson is the real deal. If one is then we have to take him if we can. Branch will be good but we can find another more easily.

Re: The Return Of Cb Stability

okoye is a much better all around DT (can pressure, athletic to get to the ball carrier etc) and may actually be the better pick at DT.

for a DE, i'd really like to see tape on anderson... he's got the size and stats, but not a long track record.

Thank you. Darrell Green was the BEST, ABSOLUTE BEST corner in the game for close to 15 years. He slowed a bit the last 2 or 3 years, and the first year he had to develop. Even with screws in his ankles, he was the NFL's Fastest Man for 5 straight years. Thank you for clearifying my point. Oh, BTW lets see if Champ Bailey can run a 4.25 40 when he's 41. If he can last that long, that is. Learn your stuff and quit posting trash chrisl4064. Bashing Darrell Green is like a one legged man, in an ass kicking contest. Better find a prosthetic leg.

Re: The Return Of Cb Stability

I agree with you giantssuck703, we have to get more youth on that d-line. A good d-line can make an average corner look good. Also with the new rules for d-backs it makes it more difficult for a d-back to cover a receiver, with that said d-line help is crucial to a defensive backfields success. You can get all of the db's you want, if your line doesnt get pressure, the scoreboard operator is going to be very busy.
