Re: Rookie starters '05

Hard to say - depends on our draft. Based on our roster, I'd say TE has a chance. Not that I dislike Royal, but he isn't the blocker that we used during the reign of Gibbs I.

Re: Rookie starters '05

cb or wr are the more obvious two. Dont expect either to be a week one starter though. Everyone has to earn their spots with Gibbs and Williams

TE and CB are pretty much certain. That's about it.

Re: Rookie starters '05

Speaking of TE, anyone know of any later round picks that might be a good fit with the team?

Re: Rookie starters '05

WR and that's all.

The guy from BC, I think his name is Dave Kravetta, although I'm definitely not sure that is right, would be a nice pick. He is a very nasty in-line blocker. There are no TEs that fit our mold well in the earlier rounds though, and that is why no TE will be starting for us.

Also, I don't believe we will be starting a rookie CB next year either. The only possible starters are in the first and second rounds, and as I think WR is our number one pick, we won't be starting a rookie. Either Smoot or Walt Harris will start across from Springs next year, IMO.

eric knott
6'3 249lbs michigan st. / natural reciever and can be a good blocker
anthony curtis
6'6 250lbs portland st. / could be dominate as a blocker / has upside with recieving

Re: Rookie starters '05

I looked up some things about Curtis. I like him as a blocking TE. I think that might be a good later round selection.

Anthony Curtis could be a good steal. I would still feel good about Dave Kashetta (thats his name) or even Tony Jackson from Iowa. Those guys could be diesel blockers in the 6th or 7th.

Re: Rookie starters '05

i don't know what the big deal about tight ends is. chris cooley did fine last year in gibbs's system, and i don't see why we need to draft a better guy. we need to focus on middle linebackers, cornerbacks, and possible wideouts.

Re: Rookie starters '05

Cooley is our H-Back.

We aren't replacing him.

Re: Rookie starters '05

ummmmmmm cooley isnt a tight end, lol, i think this is the third time you said this. he is a h-back. the TE we are talking about is royal (who lines up on the line of scrimmage)

Re: Rookie starters '05

I think that what happens with Smoot and Gardner will help determine what we do in the draft. Gibbs had a great draft last year and I'm sure he is looking to target some specific guys to fill needs.

Look for him to get a late round pick for Gardner and then trade two picks to move up and take a specific guy. Could be a TE or corner.

Look for the late round project picks to go to Greg Williams this year.

Good chance to see a new blocking TE. Even a first rond WR won't be starting until he proves himself (see Desmond Howard...).
