Didn't know who he was

University of New Mexico center Erik Cook is scheduled to work out for the Bengals this week, but has also been drawing interest from the Browns, Bills, Titans, Panthers, Dolphins, Texans, Raiders and Redskins. The Lobos' Most Valuable Player Award winner in 2009 was a three-year starter who also gained some experience at tackle and guard earlier in his college career.

Projected round 6-7

For other people curious.

We need a good holder and with Iupati likely off the board when we're ready to pick him, I think he would be a great value. His ability to trip players should also come in handy.

Would be ironic if he tried to trip Ware.

i think both would be decent to bring in as depth. Adams would instantly become the best OT on the team. If you consider Landry only as an SS, Hamlin would instantly become our best FS as well. Neither would be anything more than a temporary stopgap or depth signing though.

Re: 2010 NFL Off-Season Rumors and Reports (Week 5)

Crap I'm now really starting to want Gaither. He's a hell of a value for a second round pick even if he's not the "ideal" zone blocking Tackle. Plus I'm starting to like the idea of a Monster Zone Blocking Line (GAITHER, DOCKERY, rabach, BIG MIKE WILLIAMS, ARTIS HICKS)

Quote:
Updating the Jared Gaither saga -- for some background, click here -- there was a report from Jason La Canfora of NFL.com this week that a trade could get done for the LT with just a high second-round pick coming back to the Ravens in return. As we know, Gaither was tendered at the first-round RFA level, so if a team signed him away with an offer sheet the Ravens didn't match, they'd send their first-round pick to Baltimore.

In essence, this now means that teams who were previously scared off because they picked so high in the first round are now back in the picture. Our speculation at the time was that the Redskins (No. 37 overall) could be in that cohort, and the Raiders (No. 39 overall, unless that pick is sent to Philly for Donovan McNabb) and Bills (No. 41 overall) are into the mix too.

In exchange for a late first-rounder or early second-rounder, Gaither is a great value, according to Football Scientist KC Joyner, and depending on what happens with the LT-needy teams in the first round, Gaither could be the big story of Day 2 of the draft, per ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter:
Quote:
Adam Schefter
This could get interesting:
"Baltimore has a surplus of tackles, and for the right price, it will deal Gaither. Washington is one of many teams that need tackles, and what happens in the first round of the draft could dictate where Gaither is dealt in the second round. The teams that need tackles, and don't get them in Round 1, could wind up dealing a pick in Round 2 to Baltimore to get Gaither. Washington would be one of the options, but there are others. And it'll be a story to follow on Day 2 of the draft."

I would much rather deal my 2011 2nd rounder than my 2010 second rounder for Gaither.

I'd rather wait and see what the available pool is come pick #37. If the rumors about Gaither are true, that's too many red flags in my opinion.

Even with Shanahan looking over him? If Zorn was our coach I would agree in a heartbeat but we apparently now have a disciplinarian. I do think it would be smart though to get an idea of whos around at 37 like you said. I guess the other downside is he would immediately command a large contract unlike a second round rookie.

I think his problems may go beyond simply needing discipline.

Re: 2010 NFL Off-Season Rumors and Reports (Week 5)

After learning more about Gaither's issues, i would shy away from trading a high draft pick for Gaither - although i certainly think there's potential there.

Assuming we we don't trade down and go OT and QB with our first two picks, i'd much rather have okung in the first and McCoy in the 2nd than Clausen in the 1st and a 2nd round OT or Gaither with our 2nd.

That being said... The ravens really need a replacement for Todd Heap and i've seen several mocks have them taking a TE in the first round. I'd trade Cooley or Davis for Gaither straight-up, if they were interested. A deal like that would allow both teams to give up superflous players while saving their first and 2nd round draft picks to fill other needs.
