i think the Vikings will be the key if the Rams are stuck with the 2nd pick. If thoer were more LT prospects in the top 10 we could possbily move down and pick up RG3.
I don't get why everyone is guarding these draft picks like they're gold. Prior to this regime, we have one 1st or 2nd round pick still on our roster (Vernon Carey - 2004)...ONE!!! With that said, if you can get a player who could even "potentially" be a franchise QB, I would be willing trade both 1st and 2nd round picks from this year and next, if that's what it took. Looking at our draft history prior to 2008, we wouldn't be giving up anything; relatively speaking.
Manning, Flynn, then RG3. Manning starts in 3 days, otherwise, Flynn starts in 9. With the Redskins about to get a call from the league in regards to some possible penalties for greg williams, who will be in NYC tommorrow and probly spilling his guts and looking at not coaching this year, we may suddenly see ourselves in a better position. Cleveland will not sell their pick(s) early because Holmgren will want to make sure RG3 is going to be his guy. Not what Shurmer says, what Holmgren says. Holmgren is the one essentially stating Browns will not give up their 22.
FA: Dmitiri Patterson (Vet min.w/ incentives)
1. Zach Martin OT
2. Bishop Sankey RB
3. Brandon Thomas G/T
4. Max Bullough ILB
5. Crockett Gilmore TE
6. Brandon Linder G/T
You guys are missing the point, if the price of griffin goes down then the fins can jump in and get him, fisher might get upset at the browns for not giving them what they originally wanted and decides not to include them in any trade scenarios, who says that the rams wanted blackmon? the way Bradford got beat up last season i would think O-line drafting is in order. Besides the Browns have Colt McCoy, who do the Browns have to catch the rock? Griffin might fall below Cleveland if blackmon is valued more than him on their chart.
I agree totally, draft picks are just draft picks, and they fail just like a 7th rounder or FA, if you build a system in which the player fits then it doesn't matter which round he is drafted in. (New England, Greenbay, Pittsburgh) are prime examples.
That won't happen if a bidding war occurs, the dolphins will pay the price for RGIII, Fins need to excite the fan base, either it's manning or griffin one of those Qbs will be in a dolphins uniform this season.
