    Because they get rid of veterans and big dollar players and let the new guys go. This is the model you have to follow if you are going to be competitive year in and out in the NFL. Draft well and don't overpay vets/ hold on to vets too long.

    We are going to see in a couple of years is the end of what has been our core since 2000- JO, Ray, Jamal, possibly C-mac; and the release/retirement of guys like McNair, Rolle, Mason, Anderson, and Price.

    The key to success is to draft well and prepare for this so it is not a purge per say, more of a transition to a new generation. The way we have overhauled the o-line will happen with the whole team.
    Bingo.The Patriots and Eagles dont rebuild,they reload.I think the last 2 years of drafts have set this franchise up for the future.Brian Baldinger was on Out of Bounds at the end of the season,and he said if the Ravens have another draft class like they have the past two years we will be set up for the next 5 years.He is one of the people who's opinion I actually value because he is somewhat local and he actually watches film.

    Draft (Players I'd get in later rounds. Not sure where any would fall. Random names).

    1. Josh Wilson.
    2. Kenny Irons.
    3. Michael Bush.
    4. Aaron Sears.
    5. Drew Stanton.
    6. Colt Brennan. Aaron Wilson is saying that he's available in this draft.
    Most if not all those players are probably gone before round 3. I look for Drew Stanton to be selected early to mid second round. I certainly wouldn't mind picking a guy like Grubbs or Blalock in the first, and then taking Stanton in the 2nd if he's there. He could be a very good NFL QB IMO.

    Round one: Joe Staley - OT/OG Central Michigan
    Perfect guard candidate and good backup tackle, where he could probaly be a starter for most teams. A DeCosta favorite and rightfully so. Good character, very fast, and lots of athleticism. Clocked a 4.47 40
    I find it extremely hard to believe that an offensive lineman ran a 4.47, could you please clarify this for me?

    I agree with this post. Our last two draft classes have been so good, and if 2007 and 2008 draft classes are on par or better, I am not worried about losing the 30 over crew after 2008. Eric Decosta seems hell bent on improving our league leading 75% of draft picks playing in the NFL, and I believe he'll do it.

    We seem to excel in the late rounds. We haven't missed on a draft pick in the late first round yet. (Maybe that is an omen that we are due to miss). Nah! Think positive.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    01/24/07 - Senior Bowl South Team Wednesday Practice Report: One of the players I was most excited to see line up in the Senior Bowl was Central Michigan's Joe Staley. Despite dramatically stepping up his level of competition, Staley has held up well, especially in pass protection, this week. Staley has good quickness out of his stance and keeps his feet moving. His balance and overall athleticism keep him in front of defenders. While he uses his hands well, Staley will have to continue to get stronger to reach his potential, but he solidified his position this week among the draft's better left tackle prospects.12/31/06 - PRO PROSPECTS: OT Joe Staley bolstered his pro status throughout the season, and goes into the offseason as a potential late first-round or early second-round pick in the NFL draft. 12/26/06 - PRO PROSPECTS: OT Joe Staley was among the MAC's most dominant linemen the past two seasons. At 6-5, 280 pounds, he runs a 4.7 40-yard dash, giving him first-day potential in the NFL draft.

    * He rwas clocked at the lower time at least once, but the link? I visit too many sites to track it down easily.

    there is a huge difference between 4.7 which is greqat for a lineman and 4.47 which wouldd be good for a DB/LB/RB

    He wouldn't have been moved from TE if he ran a 4.47. He ran a 4.7.

    Re: Early want list

    If the link I saw a week or so was wrong, then I'm wrong.

    Nevertheless, even after adding that 3/10 of a second, you're talking about a lot of speed for an offensive lineman. I suspect not even Chester is that fast.

    1) Franchise AD

    2) Resign Pashos, Johnson, Mughelli

    3) Draft: Round 1-Lynch, Ross, Kalil, Staley Round 2-Stanton, Hunt, Wilson

    Re: Early want list

    I like the idea of drafing Kalil at Center or a RB w/ our 1st round pick. If we go w/ a defensive player again I might have a heart attack. Ngata was a good pick...but the offense still needs some work.

    Why do we need a 4th center that is likely to be on the roster during the season? I understand it's nice to have versatility and Brown and Flynn are both probably better at Guard, and we haven't seen enough of Chester at C yet, but what we need from our next interior lineman prospect is a BIG bruising RG.

    So my early want list?
    1. Cut ties with Jamal, Musa, Vincent
    2. Tag and Trade AD to SF for a high second, despite a low first being offerred by other teams, NE who BTW has 2. I'd love to keep him, I jsut don't see it working out.
    3. Either let JO retire or have him restructure to free up space.
    4. Re-sign Suggs to 5 yr deal.
    5. Re-sign Pashos, Mughelli,Stover and Jarret Johnson to 3 year deals.

    Draft
    From this list get a G, a LB and a RB in the first 2 rds.
    Blaylock, Grubbs, Beekman, Willis or Polsuzny, Bush, Pittman, and throw Josh Wilson in there and then get Booker in the third.

    Re: Early want list

    Offer AD 10 million signing bonus for 4 years, with a base of maybe 3-4 million. If he takes it great, if not SeeYa. I love AD as a player and person but I don't think we can really afford much more than that and improve our running game enough.

    Draft :

    Joe Staley - OT/OG Central Michigan

    The more I read about this kid the more I like him. He seems like the prototypical lineman of the future.

    Couldn't agree more. Carr has a great toolset and could be very good with a decent line to protect him.

    I have also heard that the Browns are working a deal for him, so we may get to see what he has next year one way or another.
