i like this draft a lot for the eagles…branden albert would be a tra thomas clone very soon at 6’7” 300+ he will be a monster…my favorite part is drafting chris johnson in the second round with his speed he would be perfect for the return game…the only thing i think would be better is if the birds drafted jordy nelson instead of tyrell johnson…while we do need a young saftey i think jordy could be the sleeper of the wide recievers of the draft
Thanks for checking it out Tom. I like Jordy Nelson a lot, and could see him being the pick there depending on how the draft falls. The reason I do not have a receiver in this draft, is I think there will be a Lito Sheppard trade for either a late first or early second round pick, and they can get a WR there. Malcolm Kelly and James Hardy are two guys who may land around that area.
If we end up with Albert & Johnson in the 1st 2 rounds it would be amazing. i think they are 2 huge needs, but if we do end up trading Sheppard, we better get a young CB early also, and with 11 picks (which we could never use all of them) we have enough firepower to trade some of the later picks and get another 2nd or 3rd rounder and get a big receiver. with Kelly’s 40 time, he will be there late in the 2nd and would be a steal!! 10 days counting and cant wait!!!! GO EAGLES
If the draft goes as you have predicted the Lions will take Albert before they consider anybody else. He has been in for two visits. The lions Like Williams but only behind Clady and Albert. Look for the Lions to add a DE before they add a DT. They have drafted two DT’s in the second round two of the last three years. They are looking for them to step up.
Thanks for stopping by Matt. You think maybe they are smoke screening with Albert by having him visit twice?
Why would the Panthers draft back-to-back OT’s??
Joe Diesel – You got me. That doesn’t make sense at all. I think I had them taking somebody else, and shuffled some picks around. Thanks for pointing that out.
I like your top 10 picks. The Broncos won’t take Talib to play safety. They need help on the offensive line and will probably go with Chris Williams or Ryan Clady, whoever fits their system better. I hate seeing Tampa take Desean Jackson because they need a number one receiver and he projects as a slot receiver. I would much rather see them taking Kentwan Balmer, Brian Brohm, or any other wide receiver with a little more size. I love the Chargers taking Gosder Cherilus and you are right on with the Rams second round pick. Will Witherspoon is a pro bowl outside linebacker and a good inside backer.
I think the Bears will draft an offensive line in the first round but I think it is more likely to be Alberts. The Bears may draft a safety but it will not as high as the third round. They still are counting on Mike Brown and have been stocking up on young safeties over the last few years. Besides that I think you are spot on about the postitions that need to be addressed.
Dan – Thanks for the comment. Nobody likes Talib to the Broncos. That seems to be the pick everybody rips right away. I could easily see them going offensive line. I agree that Jackson is not an ideal number 1, but I think the Bucs realize they need a WR with speed. Galloway is the only fast guy they have right now, and everybody saw what happened when he got hurt in the playoffs. Thanks for stopping by, and come check the site out this weekend. I will have live draft updates, and possibly a live draft chat.
John Morgan - You may be right about Albert. I like Albert more than Otah. Otah does not seem very quick on his feet, and may have problems with speed rushers. I have to disagree with you on the Mike Brown point. Brown has not had a full healthy season since 2003. It is time for the Bears to just give up on Mike Brown, and go in another direction.
