A lot of mock drafts are saying we take:

Da'Quan Bowers/ Defensive End. But is he BPA? I mean really, I look at this draft with little value now that Luck is gone. Is he #1 pick worthy? Everette Brown is a bust (please present evidence that suggests otherwise). Charles Johnson is a beast and could use someone on the other side to complement him. Brayton is a solid plug in, not good and not bad. We can sure up the DT position in Free Agency and/or a late round draft pick.

Is ANYONE #1 Pick worthy? None of the QB's are, but do we reach? None of the QB's are "the sure thing". They are just players on the rise with "potential". I wouldn't mind a QB, but if we draft one every season with our 1st pick then we will end up sitting back at #1 the following season.

I would like AJ Green based off the fact we don't have a "true #1" anymore. Smith is getting older and might want out (all evidence leads to that). Gettis and LaFell have potential to be really solid, we are yet to see what Edwards can do. Spending 3 picks on WR's last season and getting rid of a highly valuable #33 overall. Do you take another WR?

I wouldn't take Peterson at #1 overall. You can fill the void in Free Agency/Trades/late round picks/etc. I would consider taking him if we traded down though (highly unlikely considering there is almost no one worth the #1 overall, no trade value).

Nick Fairley could give us some young talent at DT. But I honestly think you can fill this hole in Free Agency/Late round draft pick.


I also know this is the 10,000th thread about such a topic.

Let's see the game tomorrow, then find out at the combine what happens, then we can decide.

Right now, I'm with Green. After the game I might be with Fairley or Newton. But until the combine, we just can't really say.

actually someone just posted evidence on why Brown isn't a bust.. don't feel like searching it at the moment, but of the guys that were drafted with him he's doing pretty well comparatively..


I say get Green and bring in Orton...

If it comes down to either Green, Bowers, or Newton, I'd much rather have Green than either of the other two.

If Fairley dominates tomorrow night's game, I think he takes the cake, though.

I've seen flashes from him, and even some solid plays by him. But him not ever on the field (and when he was, being invisible) really put up some question marks for me. I think he deserves 1 more season of judgement with a coach who can do something with the defense (i.e Rivera).

Green seems to be the real deal. No Megatron, but he is a beast.

Greg Hardy, Eric Norwood, Charles Johnson, Tyler Brayton, Everette Brown...Do we need Bowers?

here's my opinion on the whole matter, Not that anyone cares:

Bowers is a possibility if we don't resign CJ this offseason, which i doubt. we already wasted, erm, I mean, used a 2nd (from our first) round pick on everette brown. give him one more year of spiny top dancing and then move on if there is no improvement.

Fairley, I see as a better possibility over bowers simply due to positional need, but he's no suh, so, probably not.

Green, sorry to say it guys, but I don't see it happening. Only way it happens is if we show smitty the door, thats the only way i could see the pick as justifiable after using 3 picks on WRs the year before and watching 2 of those picks improve each week.

Newton, I'm in the minority (Ironic choice of words...) here but I don't believe in him as much as you guys do. he's flashy, he makes plays, he scores touchdowns, I get it, he's a sexy pick, but rarely does a QB like him transition to the NFL smoothly. He concerns me because we don't know if he can play under center, if he can make reads, or if he is Mature enough for the NFL (don't make a big deal out of that last point, it is a legitimate concern with his past).

Gabbert, for whatever reason, is the consensus #1 QB in this years draft class by all the talking heads now that Luck is out of the picture. Do i agree with them? no clue. honestly, I'm getting a whole hell of a lot of visions of Alex Smith when people talk about this kid, minus the tiny hands. I'm not sold on him either.

Peterson, no, not happening. unless we do something retarded with gamble, I don't see it happening.

That's my take on all the guys you people have been talking about. I'm not sold on anyone.

Yeah that does seem about right. He said in 2008 that when his Career is over he wants to Coach at a High School there.

So with that being said, why would we still pick Green?

Green is the only #1 worthy but if we really want a QB, we'd have to trade down.

I think Green is the best player in the draft, and I think you take that player in the top 5 regardless of your roster. Drafting for need there is asking for a bust.

Cause he is BPA, a real #1 WR and how much longer is Smitty going to be playing?

He isn't the triple crown Smitty anymore. Time to find a replacement for the near future.
