there's a billion good available free agent wide receivers.

why in the name of god would you pass on luck unless you literally never watch stanford.

Miles Austin signed a long term deal before week 1 this year, so they might want to change that.

Anyone wanting Gruden as head coach needs to report to the hospital tomorrow for their mandatory vasectomy.

the panthers could be the latest nfl team to have an LSU player bust!

Have you ever watched this kid play? My guess is no.

I find the infatuation with Luck highly amusing. I see absolutely no way we are going to pick Luck in the top ten next year. We might take him with the top 5 pick in 2012 if Luck decides to stay in school one more year. He is playing well on a good team currently and has been able to overcome some issues with his footwork and release. He is also pretty young and has not performed at that level for long enough to be rated so highly for the draft next year.

Jake Locker is an interesting prospect for the NFL because of he is a threat to pick up some yards on the ground. He should go in the top 20 but might get taken earlier by a team desperate for a franchise QB.

Whatever pick we end up with we will go BPA and it won't be a QB. We will probably draft a defensive end or cornerback seeing as we are likely to pick tenth or thereabouts. We will add a veteran QB through Free Agency.

we will trade down and select an olineman. just watch

I don't think there is a lot of value in picking an O-lineman in the first round although I would not be surprised if we trade down in the unlikely event that we end up with a top 5 pick. Maybe they want to go after Derek Sherrod who I have heard has the potential to be a good LT.

I saw a mock draft with John Moffitt of Wisconsin going to us on another thread and I think he would be a good pick in mid-rounds. Now, I'm a Badger fan so I may be a little biased, but I think he has potential to be a pretty good guard. I would rather we go after him than someone like Gabe Carimi in the first round.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
