    Alberta is in Canada but a handful of us would like to annex from Canada like the seperatists in Quebec - LOL

    No sorry I can't tell you anything that you won't read on a website, the CFL draft pundits have him ranked first meaning he won't be selected that high in the CFL because he will never play a down in Canada's CFL -> he is from the football factory called Quebec where a lot of our NFL quality players are being raised...

    The CFL is loaded with Quebec talent -> Alberta only has a few schools next to Ontario and Quebec. Calagry Dinos has grown more competitive, since Blake Nil arrived to coach from Ontario (I believe it could have been Quebec)
    C. Patterson gets indefinitely suspended for "not showing up" and Buttfumble got a raise for "not showing up" - go figure how the JESTS world works?

    1 (27) - RT Morgan Moses, Virginia - Day 1 Starter at RT, line complete.

    2 (50) - G Gabe Jackson, Miss. - Day 1 Starter at LG, line complete.

    2 (53) - TE Troy Niklas, Notre Dame - Easily #2 TE and competes for #1 slot with Clay.

    3 (81) - OLB Telvin Smith, Florida State - Depth move that can either push Wheeler or take over.

    4 (116) - RB Charles Sims, West Virginia - D. Thomas is gone and Sims slots in at #3, wide open RB camp battle with Moreno and Miller

    5 (155) - WR Brandon Coleman, Rutgers - Project big body WR, red zone threat Fins lack. 6'6 225lbs....nice.

    I could live with this draft if that exact trade were to happen. I could also accept going with Bitonio in rd1, Borland and Niklas in rd2 and Mewhort in 3.
    Time for the 'Phins of the future to play like the 'Phins of the past. Bring it on.

    Other than QB, center and DE they can get better at ALL positions.

    I don't have any idea what they will do.

    Hickey seems much better at this than Ireland though.

    He is much more polite and politically correct with the media, while basically saying absolutely nothing about anything.

I keep going back and forth on this, and just cannot decide.
    First let's see who is available when we pick at 19. You can't make trades like this without knowing the stakes.

    It's a crap shoot either way. No pick comes with guarantees. My thinking is the more picks we have, the more opportunities we have to fill holes or improve our depth at key positions.

    I've never seen a quarterback throw a touchdown laying on his back. If we fix the O-line, plays have more time to develop and it should make our receivers better.

    I agree to an extent. I don't want to trade too far back. The smaller the jump backwards, the less drop off in talent for your next pick, or it gives you the chance to trade back again and pick up even more picks. More picks, more picks, more picks. I can't say it enough.

    Translation please? I think you were making a feeble attempt to say something clever but, I may be wrong, pending translation. lol
