    I tell you what.

    I've never seen so much love for the 61st overall pick in the draft.

    Patrick Johnson was a 2nd rounder.

    Thank you. The voice of reason.


    Name a running back left when pick #61 comes around that will be better than Willis Magahee, and I'll laugh at you.


    I love the fact that people think these draft picks are worth more than they are. We need a RB. Getting Magahee with a 2nd or 3rd would be a steal.

    Think of it like this:

    We aren't the only team after McGahee. So you ask why Buff is in a position to require a 2nd rounder when they want to drop him? Because they CAN. Someone will give up a 2nd round pick, whether it is the Ravens, the Packers, Raiders, or some other random team that needs a RB. You don't want to sit on your ass and demand a 3rd round pick when some other team comes in and swipes him away for a 2nd.

    And like Poe said, who the hell do you get that is better than he is at 61?

    Re: Bills sign Brown: McGahee a Raven tomorrow?

    I heard that most likley it will be:

    A 2nd this year
    or
    A 3rd this year and a 5th or 6th next year
    "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."

    I am okay with a 2nd, or a 3rd this year and 5th next year. A 2nd and 5th is highway robbery. We need those picks to upgrade our O-Line b/c without that McGahee will be just as ineffective as Jamal was the last two years.

    This is the writing on the wall, I think it's a done deal if everything can be trusted.

    If so, McGahee to Balt will be announced very shortly. Rumored 2nd round pick, but only heard that from Sirius radio.....

    edit: alleged sirius report of a second round pick is being strongly denied

    Interesting how fast this happened...and rumors out of cleveland have jamal signing with the Browns very soon.
    This link doesn't say anything about Brown... who is he?

    Re: Bills sign Brown: McGahee a Raven tomorrow?

    Yeah...I just checked it again....they took that story down.

    Brown and Dillon visiting Buffalo though.

    I hate disinformation

    Can you tell me, though, who is Brown? I'm drawing a blank!

    Re: Bills sign Brown: McGahee a Raven tomorrow?

    Wouldn't surprise me to see them get two draft picks out of us, since we're tight against the cap. Ozzie might be keeping the number of rookies to a minimum and avoid having to come up with cap space to sign them all. Not sure I agree with the logic, but I can understand it. I still hope we get this done for less than a second. Even a late second is too much here. We could get by with a lesser RB like MA or Musa.

    I’m still hoping for 3rd – we do need some picks – but I do see a sense of logic with the whole less rookies less money spent idea…
    It sure seems to be a heck of an offseason and we have just begun.

    But I for one think Willis would be a great addition to the team and we will be better off. The option of making runs without the NEED of a FB in position opens us up for a heck of a lot more plays. Now if Steve can get a little more arm strength this offseason…

    Chris Brown, from Tennesee.

    You know who else was drafted in the 2nd round in recent years? Anquan Boldin, Bob Sanders, and Maurice Drew, to name a few. Frank Gore was also a 3rd round pick 2 years ago.

    I like McGahee, I'm just not so sure I've seen enough from him to give up a 2nd rounder. I won't be very distraught if the Ravens DO give up a 2nd and a 5th, but I'm not so sure I would do the same. Then again, I'm just a fan.

    I'll tell you what.

    I think a Kenny Irons or a Michael Bush in the 2nd round have the potential to put up the SAME, if not BETTER numbers than McGahee in the next 4 years. They'll also cost a HELL of a lot less.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm as excited about McGahee as anyone; I really am. I'm just unsure about giving up a 2nd round pick and a huge contract for a RB when we have an O-line that needs to be seriously addressed; also, I believe that good RB's aren't very hard to come by in the draft.

    Either way, I'm not losing sleep over it.
