    First Mayock and now Coselll are saying Pugh may go at the end of round one. Mayock's new Big Board has Pugh as his 24th best player.


    I'm looking at YOU Ozzie. I'm not seeing other teams at the end of the round looking for a left tackle like the Ravens are looking and Cosell knows Ozzie.
    I've heard a few people now say that they'd play him at LT until he proved he couldnt do it. The guy is such a technician and has such good feet you wanna believe it. He really is one of my fav prospects in this draft but his arm length scares me to death at the same time. I guess we are gonna find out real soon. I think he can be a Levitre type of guard and wish everyday that his arms were longer lol.

    I think Pugh is very similar to Sam Baker.

    Frankly, I don't have all that high of an opinion of Baker, but if you can live with Baker, I think that is what Pugh's ceiling.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    I like Pugh at guard way more, maybe even center. He has 32 inch arms, thats going to be an issue when you as him to play on the island, no matter how good his film is.

    Sam Baker has 32 inch arms as well.

    FTR...I don't like Pugh at tackle either, but at least he tries to use his arms on tape as opposed to Oher.

    That's true, but honestly, is Sam Baker really someone you would go back in time to take in the first round? If I have a void at guard, I would like Pugh as a pick for that void who can cover tackle in a pinch.

    Absolutely not...I thought that was a bad trade by Atlanta when they did it.

    Yeah, and I think if Sam Baker was more physically gifted in size, like maybe 2 or 3 inches taller, and had 35 inch arms, I'm pretty sure he'd be an all pro tackle because of how well he uses his feet. He's kind of an over achiever for someone of his statue, but its still not enough to be any better than average.

    I agree...I was just pointing Baker out because some here wanted us to look into signing him in ufa.

    Re: LT Prospects

    Mid-round OT project candidates:

    Fragel - Bend needs improvement
    Nixon - Needs to become more consistent
    Quessenberry - Lack of recovery from counter-moves concerns me
    Mills - Road paver but heavy-footed in pass pro

    Fragel looks pretty good. He has Joe Thomas arms, but he locks on to guys pretty well. Very nimble for 6'8. I'm more comfortable with him than Nixon, who was my previous choice as our project-OT.

    Still need to watch Bakhtiari and Brennan Williams. Will watch Mills again.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.
