    Yeah updating my post, definitely Green's also a backup center, so makes sense but this puts Mrzucowski on notice

    The difference is I'm not pretending to be some sort of draft guru. I'm not responding to every pick with declarative statements I pull out of my *** like, "We could have had him in the next round." That's pure conjecture and to state it as fact is laughable. Let these guys put on the pads before you freak out about the pick, that's all I'm saying. The time to judge this draft is not today. It's in 3-4 years.

    There were not that many RB drafted. Jennings and Peerman both are still available. I had one RB that I wanted.

    Ya your right you dont.....You just come in here attacking every post someone makes saying so....Dude its a forum, you are going to have these kinds of posts all over this forum. You have been around long enough to know.

    Should we put a rule in saying that after each post we have to put IMO? Come on.

    Why are we here? Why is the media here? We can judge and speculate. I have done it for 30+ years. I was right about some and wrong about some. We all have opinions about the selections. I am not a draft guru nor do I claim to be.

    Look I'm taking all hte picks with a grain of salt but yeah frankly I think there are some reaches and some peculiar picks based on my understanding.

    I'll give them all the chance to step up and play, but i will say this about AJ's draft; he is damn good at finding diamonds in the rough and also this draft has been about attitude above all else. Everyone in this draft is defined as 'nasty' and frankly that's what we've missed with Norv as a coach and in the locker room

    ****ing jamie dukes... ragging on special teams/punters saying they ride the "short bus"

    ok you fat SOB - let's see you make kicks like SciFi - it's the freaking 5TH ROUND! Picking a punter, especially a good one isn't a bad move :p dumbass

    they're not that well valued in the draft unless either they're very good like Kaeding or the team drafting them are ****ing retarded (Raiders-Janikowski-first round). But yeah clearly they have HUGE value if they're good. Dukes is an idiot

    After this round pick i'm going to stretch and turn off the draft, i'm almost on overload

    Looks like the Charger Cam has been a bit late.

    Looks like we are not grabbing a safety.

    He only weighs 177 and is like 5'10"-5'11". If he makes the team he's going to be a nickel back. Can't see anyone that small starting. Might be a returner at 4.4.

    We've passed on a laundry list of good talent for a bunch of no-name bums topped off by a freakin Canadien football player. I give
    This draft a solid D.

    I'll give it a B- for now. Definite improvement on the interior of the line, I like the Canadian, English helps with the pass rush. Just got to wait and see what happens. This is almost the epitome of the draft you can't grade now

    Wow, I'd give this draft a solid B at this point. I didn't know many of the names but did read up on them after each pick and I'm quite pleased... :icon_eek:

    :tup: :football: :tup:

    I think it means AJ missed SS Nic Harris and didn't have a backup plan. I'm starting too lose respect for AJ by the second.

    I have to agree. I think Tyrone Green is the best pick so far.

    English is a depth pick, at best he is Shaun Phillips clone. The rest of the guys I've never heard of.
