SB Nation Bloggers Draft

16 April 2014 - 01:51 AM

Interesting mock draft.  Bloggers from each area draft as things may fall.

 

I like these kind of drafts because they usually know what their team needs better than some clown at ESPN or CBS Sports.

 

Marquise Lee for us.   I could live with it.

Army Vet gets one last shot at NFL

15 April 2014 - 06:29 AM

Would you take a chance on a 7th rounder or UFDA on this guy?

 

It was an interesting story.   At 6'-9" at minimum you have a Red Zone threat?  I don't care how much a vertical leap a DB has he is never gonna out jump a 6'9" TE.  (Well most of the times)

Story also mentions a player from ECU. 


5 1/2 weeks to go....

Well the draft is almost here.   I think for the first time in many years I haven't had a clear cut favorite that I was pulling for.

 

Any number of players could fall to us.   One crazy move by any of the 27 teams ahead of us and we could have a coveted player or get robbed of someone we were pretty certain would be there.

 

Do you have your clear cut, gonna be pissed if we don't select him, favorite?    If So, WHO?

 

 


Cyrus Kouandjio..... WHY?

Didn't this guy have a real crappy combine workout?  Doesn't he have possible knee issues?

 

Do we really want to waste a #1 pick on a guy who has the potential to be another J. Otah?

 

I don't know why mock drafts continue to select him for us.   I wouldn't touch this guy with a 10 foot pole.  Well at least in round 1.


The Huddle has split.....Once Again

12 March 2014 - 04:35 AM

It amazes me that 2 months after winning the NFC South we have so many "Fans" jumping off the bandwagon.

Every off season this forum splits faster than Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada marriage.

Half are the sky is falling 100% pure pessimist and the others are optimistic and ready to see what pans out before panicking.

The former drives me crazy and I am a part of the latter. I will always have faith and believe that management will make the right decision. Sometimes they don't and a lot of the times they do.

Last year 1/2 thought Cole, Ginn, Mikell and Mitchell were a waste of money and time. They proved to be good choices and our team did well. We had zero leverage room as far as the cap was concerned yet Gettleman did a good job and made us relevant.

This year is a bit worse but we have to believe we will be relevant once the season begins.

I believe many are forgetting we have young players that will be returning to the offensive line in Silatolu,Kugbila and Chandler. While Bell hasn't turned into a pro bowler our staff hasn't given up hope on him (obviously we just re-signed him). I have to believe they see something in him. I believe the year of seasoning will be of great value to all of these guys. Kugbila got to sit and learn without the pressure of playing. That will be a benefit.

McNutt and King were brought into our team to ride the pine? While they didn't play in 2013 I believe they were brought in as the future. They were brought in to learn the system and be ready for next year. I, as an optimist, believe they will have a say in 2014.

We'll add a Free Agent here or there. Most likely after the player who thought he was a big buck player realizes no one is going to pay him the top dollar he thinks he is worth. Gettleman isn't stupid. He'll work his magic and make us relevant in 2014.

Optimists will agree, Pessimists won't. That's the Huddle durng the offseason, it was this way last year, this year and most likely next year.

I think we will be just fine.
