Ive been lookin on net for draft analysis to see whom experts think had the best overall draft and the only one i could find was mel kiper, which isnt in my opinion finding one at all. So I thought I would ask fellow Orca fans their opinion on who had the best and worst draft 09.

My opinion is that I think the Bengals and Bills had the best drafts.

Bengals picked up 3 players with 1st round talent but again with Bengals all have charachter issues......best draft of potential starters....but it is the bengals.

Bills have picked 5 potential starters in Maybin, Wood, Levitre, Byrd and Nelson. I think this is the best draft, though they still need a Tackle.

A note on our draft, I think they are agressive picks, as they seem to be picks to win rather than devolop. CB and WR was bigest need and we picked up competition in both areas. The creative nature it gives to Henning with the pick of White will have teams worrying when he strolls out in package with RB, RW and TG.:up:

I like the Bengals draft over the Bills, only because I think Johnson could be the best player in the draft this year if somebody can turn his light on.

On another note I think the Jets had the worst draft possible. I think Sanchez was the most over hyped player of the draft. And what they traded to get a one year player with a mediocre arm is just laughable. The fact that he was out performed by Pat White in passing drills is just a bonus.

I agree. Not sure about the WR drafted, but the first 3 picks could all contribute immediatelly.

Everybody talking about Wildcat for Pat White, which I belive would be awesome, but Henning drew that up mainly for Ronnie Brown, so he may have another and even beter package for Pat White. I think with the WR drafted and the ones already on roster, i can see spread offence package with White at QB. They have to honour Ginn speed so would have to keep one safety deep and also be aware of White running. If white can get the ball out camarillo and Bess will have field day with underneath coverage.

Bears considering Jay Cutler-Jaquin Inglesias and Johnny knox.

Other than the Dolphins...the Texans.

When you figure how hard it's been for the Dolphins when they play them...now add Cushing, Barwin along with a few other decent players...Geez.

Cushing

Barwin

Caldwell

Casey

McCain

and a few others...not a bad draft for a team on the edge.

I usually dont post much but here are my 2 cents.

This thread reminds me of a similar one of last year, if I recall correctly KC was thought to have the best draft last year and I really don't know how their players are doing but judging from their record and the fact that they picked top 5 in this past draft doesn't seem to be a great class. makes me wonder about all the commentaries I have been hearing about draft grades, "everybody" knows a draft should be evaluated after 3 years and still you hear and read all this experts draft grades, I know there's not a lot to talk about during this period, but common.

about our draft, I remember a lot of people questioned our picks last year specially the Langford one, it turns out he has been great, so we'll see maybe we could have the best draft of all

go phins and welcome to all the new miami dolphins members, here is hoping they become contributors and build a great team that can win a championship

NYG draft was good. Pats did a bang up job as usual- got what they needed for their system and yet another extra 2nd rd pick next year. Bears, when you factor in Cutler, did very well. Bengals draft is potentially excellent.

Big fan of the Jags draft. Stud LT, starting RT, I think at least one of Thomas and Dillard will turn into a very productive WR and I think they got very good 7th round value in Jennings and Underwood. They upgraded their offense in a major way IMO... and they've got 3 young, talented WRs to learn from Holt for a a few years.

I agree draft class best to be evaluated after 2-3 yrs.

But unfortunatelly none of us have that magical gift of hindsight, thats why finheaven is so popular, as people are expressing their opinions before the fact so that other can agree or disagree not just say whats the point and stit on the fence. I can see now why you dont post much.

I felt like the Browns did a great job of trading down several times and picking up much needed draft picks. You can really see that team turning around quickly.

Gotta love the Patriots draft as well. Once again they got quality players and also set themselves up for next year's draft. This is how they keep winning year after year after year.

I got to agree the packers and eagles also seem to have had excellent drafts.

If everybody plays up to their potential the Bengals had the draft as Andre Smith, Rey Rey, and Johnson are top 10 talents. Getting Chase Coffman also helps the offense.

The Iggles also did a good job as Shady,Maclin, and Ingram will all make impacts this year. They had some other potential studs, but those 3 are who will help now.

Bills potentially have a really good class, but it's based on a lot of potential. It could take 2 years before a lot of guys really meet their potential.

I also personally love the Steelers draft.

How do you figure 4 second round picks
They received Tenn and Jacksonville for 2 picks
plus they have there own which makes it
3- second round picks which is still scary in a very strong draft class,

Maybe they got another second round pick that I am unaware of.

Drafts are only as valuable as the talent you develop. It's extremely rare for a player coming right out of college to have the ability to immediately play at a high NFL level. For those types, think Randy Moss.

99.9% of players need to be developed. That's why many of the top young talents are coming from the same organizations. Some teams know how to develop talent; some don't.

That's why it makes me laugh a little when people praise teams like the Bengals. There draft might look good now, but what will it yield? Judging by the past few seasons, not much.

Teams that had two first round picks, should get more high caliber talent [Lions, Packers, Bills].

Of those teams, I like what the Packers did the best. I'm not a huge Matthews fan, but I think he'll be solid. Raji, though, should be a great player for a long time.

For our needs, I really like Davis as one of the best talents we could have procured - regardless of draft position. Raji would be the other, though, that I really covet.

I really like what the San Diego Chargers did in the draft.
