    Re: Now, Let's Talk Draft



    The QB crop is pretty weak this year, but I would take a chance on Jordan Palmer. He has a very good arm and good bloodlines. He is someone we could develop behind McNair for 2 or 3 years. I think either Jordan Palmer or Drew Stanton are guys to gamble on. I would also look at Tyler Palko as someone to challenge Drew Olson.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

The Chargers are in a sellers market, teams need RBs and they're in a position where they have a surplus. However they don't HAVE to get rid of Turner and in fact would be well served not to in terms of maintaining depth at RB. They are in a position where they won't offload him unless they get absolutely blown away by an offer or someone decides to tender him a ridiculous contract offer and give up the draft picks in compensation.
    It is being widely reported that the Jets are going after Turner,willing to give up their first round pick which Im sure is at least 5 spots higher than ours.

    The last thing we need to do is get into a bidding war.

    best option at RB will probably be something like Bush or Irons being around in the second round

    Unless someone significantly drops (like Lynch), I am all for trading down and even out of the first round. If we can somehow end up with three 2nd round picks, we could clean up this year with a Ben Grubbs at the top of the 2nd round, a Michael Bush in the middle of the 2nd round, and a Jarvis Moss at the end of the 2nd round.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    If we had three picks in the second, it might certainly be possible to get those three around that area.

    Wouldn't THAT ever be a ridiculous draft. Well, we think it would be good now...

    I would think a running back would be a top priority. A quarterback in the first day might be a possibility as well. Worst case scenario, we draft a good lineman. Doesn't matter what side of the ball as long as he's solid.

    The more I look at this draft, the more and more I see massive drop off where there are tons of guy who are second round talents that are hyped or thought to fit "needs" that are getting slotted in.

    The top 10 seems decent, but after that it goes downhill fast unlike previous years where you're seeing a guy like maroney or addai at the end of the 1st

    W hear this every year though.

    Who are your top 10 prospects and then who are your next tier prospects

    I took a harder look, I'm gonna go with after 15-16 (russell, thomas, quinn, c. johnson, branch, jamaal anderson, peterson, okoye, gaines adams, laron landry, lynch, jarrett, leon hall, revis, ted ginn/reggie nelson)

    And yeah, we hear this every year. I agree.

    like I said before, it's not like I can go and point a finger at a player right now and go "that's who we're after". I really felt from the get-go that we should get Ngata and Clayton. This year, I really can locate a guy like that.

    Rather, I see a collection of players that look available and could be worth the slot, but I can't focus down on one of them
    1) Ben Grubbs ~ super atheltic guard, but is raw and just say no to round 1 guards
    2) Blalock ~ more of a guard as opposed to a tackle, less mobile.
    3) Arron Sears ~ he's the #3 tackle in the draft and from reports was very solid at the senior bowl though he's more of a do it all decent than a master of one thing.
    4) Patrick Willis ~ 6-2 240 4.6...supposedly weaker in coverage, and has trouble shedding big blockers, but the whole MO of our team is to prevent LBs from having to deal with the blocks.
    5) Quentin Moses ~ questionable at being around, but is a great OLB-DE tweener that fits the mold of Suggs, undersized quick DE.


    Ideally, there are some other players we'd never get that might be worth trading up for if they start to fall: Okoye, Lynch, Timmons, Levi Brown, Dwayne Bowe.

    All sorts of people (random mocks) seem to want Troy Smith or Michael Bush and that doesn't really make sense.
    Bush should be there in the second and there is still a big question mark about the injury recovery and experience playing RB, Smith wants to be a Brown (yeah...LBJ of the NFL?) and may not go until round 3 or 4.

    So I guess you can see my point...too many people, no idea what's going on. But I do like the idea of getting Moses or Willis. Have to see combine results before we get the better idea on projections of some of the less well known players

    I have always saw Buster Davis as a Ravens type player. He is an undersized Linebacker and doesnt have the fastest 40 time but he has tremendous instincts and is faster on the football field than his 40 time would indicate. He is a very hard hitter and was the unquestionable leader of the Florida State defense. Plus he is always around the football on just about every play

    The guy is going to be a stud in the NFL and could definately fill the void that may happen once AD is gone. Buster Davis may fall in the draft to late first early second. I guarantee you that if he falls far enough Ozzie will grab him the first chance he gets

    I am an FSU fan, but Buster is too slow and too small. Of course two years from now I may be saying, "Did I REALLY say that?
    ENFORCE THE 1ST AMENDMENT WITH THE SECOND, NEVER DISARM

    he seemed kind of lazy during senior bowl practices, or maybe dumb. It was one or the other. Singletary would tell stuff for example he told him to get his but down and either he didn't understand and couldn't pick it up or was lazy and chose not to.

    It was a constant thing for him, even going as far as stopping a drill before it was over, leading to Singletary screaming, I didn't say you could stop.

    My Target player last year was Vince Young, followed closely by Ngata.

    This year it is Marshwawn Lynch followed closely by okoye.

    Man, if we get lynch or okoye....wow. That's all I can say.

    Re: Now, Let's Talk Draft

    NFL Draft Countdown has an interview with Fresno State RB Dwayne Wright.

    Heres some interesting parts:

    Scott Wright: What is your greatest football moment to date?

    Dwayne Wright: My greatest football moment would be against Louisiana Tech when I had 295 yards on 25 carries and a touchdown.
    Sound familiar???

    Scott Wright: What would you say is your greatest strength as a football player and what area do you need to work on?

    Dwayne Wright: I believe I have three strengths: My catching, my blocking and my vision. My vision is my biggest asset because a hole might close up on one side and then in a split second I might cut back the other way and get vertical. I'm a North / South guy but I can make defenders miss easily and I think that they always think I'm going to run them over so half the time I set them up like I am going to run them over and either run right past them or make a move and get upfield.
    Scott Wright: What current pro are you most looking forward to going up against in the NFL?

    Dwayne Wright: Brian Urlacher and Ray Lewis because I heard those guys bring it.
    Scott Wright: When you get your first professional paycheck what is the first thing you will buy?

    Dwayne Wright: I'm not going to buy, I'm going to invest. First I'm going to make sure my kids have enough money for their college and for their lives. After that I'm not worried about it. I'm just concerned about my kids and my family going through life.
    I like this guys heart and his ability. He's 6'1'' 220 and runs a 4.5 40.

    I will definatley be watching this guy at the combine, I think he could be had in the 2nd or 3rd.
    "This year, our attitude when we’re on the field is we’re attacking, we want to put points on the board and then let our defense pin their ears back and have at it."
