    Re: Now, Let's Talk Draft



    If peterson gets past pick 15 I will officially crap my pants and post a picture assuming nothing changes between now and the draft, I'd be completely shocked, but we also thought Suggs would never be around for us either.

    This draft is going to be critical for either one last run or filling in talent to be able to go forward with a new core (eg, new QB/RB)

    Peterson available at 29? What in the blue hell are you smoking? He's a top 5 pick, top 10 at the absolute worst, he's a great all-round back. Those injuries he's got aren't wear and tear injuries and won't scare anyone away. No way he falls to us.

    Colt Brennan has declared for the draft. This is THE guy I want as oru QB of the future.

    i agree, if he's there, he's our man hands down.

    I LOVED watching that bowl game. Bad 1st half, then puts up crazy numbers and a WR gets 300+ yards receiving.

    Things to note:
    1 ~ 72%+ completion percentage. System or not, that says someone makes the right reads.
    2 ~ he can move in the pocket and make plays with his legs, something needed in the Ravens offense.
    3 ~ makes all the throws...

    I'm looking for some highlights...I'll post when I find them

    If you're impressed by him carving up that stellar Arizona State D, wait till you see what he did to the stout Idaho defense.

    Don't get this decision by Brennan, he may be striking whilst the iron is hottest, but seriously, he's not a great pro prospect (not a great arm and is very slight) and if I were in his shoes I'd go back to Hawai'i, break some more records, have a ton of fun in the process and then worry about the NFL when I have to.

    I disagree. His arm looked good enough to me, and he is very accurate, something that can't be taught. (Just ask Boller).

    This is a guy I'd take in the 2nd round and sit him behind McNair and Boller.

    They say his size (6-3, 198lbs) would keep him out of the first round, so he won't be a 1st rounder. I would take him in the second round and let him grow into his frame.

    Re: Now, Let's Talk Draft

    When is this fanbase ever patient enough to let someone develop as they need?

    People were calling Terry a bust after his rookie year for being unable to play RT (even though he was never going to be able to and we knew that when he was drafted). People are calling Pittman a bust after his rookie year even though he's a small school guy who needs time to learn more complex schemes and coverages and to adjust to a level of football way above what he last played at.

    It's all well and good saying 'let him develop' 'let him grow into his frame' but I just don't trust that this fan base will sit and wait on a 2nd round pick.

    Whatever QB we take this year sits until '08 unless Mac9 is carted off the field and Boller is carted off the field...well, most likely.

    I also like the idea of a DE/LB like Spencer or a RB.

    It's a long long time until draft day, lots of things can happen

    I hear you, but that is how everyone's fanbase is: impatient. The great thing is that Ozzie does not run our organization based on our feelings, and that's what makes Ozzie the best GM in football.

    Re: Now, Let's Talk Draft

    1) Brennan is a really nice player. He definitely has the raw skills, but he will need to learn a pro offense. Not just another Hawaii QB.

    2) Peterson at 29, now that is funny. The dude is going to be a top 10 pick.

    3) Troy Smith had character issues a long, long time ago. They shouldn't effect his chances today.

    4) Can't make a choice based on how you gauge a fanbase. Most popular guy in any football town is the backup QB. QBs need to sit at least one season.

    Can someone provide insight into RB-Antonio Pittman, what kind of prospect is he, and where he projects to go.

    As with anything right now it's very early but common consensus is round 2 or 3. Solid back, nothing flash.
