RT really?

RT really?Especially not that one.

I think you meant to put GB not New Orleans for the 32nd pick.

Not a huge fan of the reiff pick at 8 or 9 (whichever we end up with).... I'd like to see best defensive player available or offensive playmaker. I think we can trade back in the 1st and still get oline help or wait till the 2nd or 3rd to fill that need.

01-11-2012, 11:07 PM
First off Riley Reiff is not gonna happen, I don't even think he's top 10 worthy regardless of the fact that we have a need at RT. Taking a RT in the top 10 would only solidify Ireland as a hack GM.

Second, and I'm not going farther than the Buffalo pick, Courtney Upshaw is not longer a fit in Buffalo. If you haven't heard Dave Wannstedt was hired to be the DC in Buffalo meaning their 2 year experiment with the 3-4 is over and they'll be moving back to the 4-3.

this right tackle stuff scares me...

01-12-2012, 12:55 AM
The only OL worth taking in the top ten are DeCastro and Kalil.

01-12-2012, 01:41 AM
The only OL worth taking in the top ten are DeCastro and Kalil.I'd even limit it to DeCastro. It's funny that people that are petrified of "reaching" for a QB have no problem with reaching for a tackle.

01-12-2012, 01:42 AM
Doubt Trent Richardson goes in the top 10. Coples will go higher.

01-12-2012, 02:16 AM
blackmon isnt getting by st louis

01-12-2012, 03:27 AM
Going by your board if we stay a 3-4, Upshaw if we go to a 4-3, Coples. We need pressure from the other side.

I'm not so sure that Upshaw wouldn't work out in a 4-3 either.

01-12-2012, 04:44 AM
I think n.o has too many rb's right now..

01-12-2012, 09:34 AM
Draft order 21-32 is wrong & New Orleans doesn't have a first rounder.

25-Cle (Atl)
29-NE (NO)

The Super Bowl loser will pick 31 & the winner 32, the other teams will slide up. It's no longer when you lose in the playoffs.

01-12-2012, 09:39 AM
I can see that Reiff pick happening, as horrible as it sounds.

A Right Tackle in the top 10. You know its coming :lol:

The Miami Dolphins have a top 10 pick and you select a RT? There is no RT that should ever be selected with a top 10 pick IMO. When you have a top 10 selection it needs to be a impact position. You can get a starting RT later in the draft or free agency. Looking at the talent in this years draft it seems that we could take a star CB like Claiborne or Kirkpatrick. Rankings are going to change so much after the combine too. Blackmon could run a poor 40 and drop...you just never know. It's fun to guess but I think its time we grab a star shut down corner if we can to match up with Davis. Other players will rise into the top 10 so its going to be a fun offseason of speculation.

I can't imagine a worse pick for the Fins in Rd 1 than this. Try again.

01-15-2012, 10:34 AM
blackmon isnt getting by st louis Contrary to popular belief I wouldn't be so sure about that. If Stl gets stuck into the 2nd spot I wouldn't be at all surprised to see them pass on Blackmon. I've from OK and I think Blackmon is the best WR coming out but 2nd is high for Blackmon. He s not going to run a great 40 and he s not that tall. His measurables aren't off the charts like you d typically see from a WR being picked top 3. Don't be surprised if he doesn't get picked 2nd. The combine will likely hurt him. 6'1-6'2 Wrs with 4.5/40 don't get picked that high. Fisher also doesn't strike me as a guy who s going to take a guy like Blackmon that high. A run first coach taking a WR 2nd overall? Doubtful.

The only way that I could tolerate an OL with a top 10 pick is if Peyton Manning fully recovers from his neck injury and we pick him up as a FA.

01-15-2012, 12:00 PM
sorry. if were picking a tackle with the 8 or 9th pic, it would more likely be martin as jake longs injuries of late have to be a concern.

martin can play left tackle so you draft him either ending up a pro bowl rt or have the luxery of a good lt should jake break down.

we need to rebuild this line in the worst way but i am hoping we take care of the majority of it in f/a, starting with guys like carl nicks [should be our top priority in f/a] and/or ben grubbs.

i dont see reiff at all in that spot.

01-15-2012, 12:23 PM
don't like our pick, but i applaud the effort of creating a full first-round mock

01-15-2012, 12:45 PM
We take an RT at 8-9 it will tell you that nothing has changed and the FO doesn't get today's NFL. You move up to try for a QB or take the BPA at a skill position. If we are stuck and OL is only value, then every effort needs to be made to trade down.

01-15-2012, 12:48 PM
i thought the best GM's pick BPA not need

01-15-2012, 01:29 PM
The ONLY way I'm somewhat cool with RT at #9 is if we sign Peyton Manning. Then it makes sense. I'd still rather draft a pass rusher and draft a RT later or sign a free agent.
