Official NFL Draft and Draft Weekend Trades Thread

Recommended Posts

I think I'm one of the few who is a tad disappointed at the Dolphins, but I am content that they were able to find some holes to fill.

You know what? I like Ted Ginn. I think he'll do well for the Dolphins, who needed this type of player. Not only do they lack a deep-threat WR, but they lack an explosive KR.

I would have liked to have Quinn... but it's okay. He belongs on the Browns.

It doesn't seem that bad, and even though I don't really know these players (I don't follow college football that closely), I think... correct that... I hope that GM Randy Mueller and Cam Cameron know what they're doing.

O.K., I'm still upset about the Anthony Gonzalez thing. Don't get me wrong, if the Colts could've chosen anyone in the draft to fill in at the #3 WR Gonzalez would've been the best choice, but the matter of the fact is...you don't use a first round pick on a player that's going to be a third option at WR. I'm not as upset at the trade for the second round pick, the line is aging and I think that Ugoh could help ease the transition to the next generation of linemen.

I do like what the Colts did in the third round, Daymeion Hughes will fit in the Cover 2 well, and Quinn Pitcock should provide some run-stuffing ability. With that said, if Bob Sanders goes down like last year the Colts are going to need Gonzalez to put up MASSIVE numbers to make up for the lack of defense.

BREAKING NEWS!!!

It's being reported RANDY MOSS (in a move that'll surprise no one) is being traded to, of all teams, the PATRIOTS, for a 4th-round pick.

Hmm...all the receivers the Pats picked up in the offseason, and now Moss.

Seems Brady must REALLY want some dependable weapons to throw to after last season, huh???

Now this is suprising. Moss is going to New England. I did not see that coming. WOW! And only for a 4th rounder.

Let's see here...

Randy Moss...Mike Williams.

Mike Williams...Randy Moss.

Hmm...

Yo--MR. PORTER!!! YOU READY TO BE A #1 RECEIVER OUT THERE?!

(As an aside, though I know Moss was/is disgruntled as hell in Oakland, wouldn't it have been something to see JaMarcus Russell throwing balls up there--and DOWN THERE--and letting Randy "just go get it", just like Randall Cunningham used to do with him? Hmm...well let's see how this pans out.)

LA just got their team back!!!!!!!

Yeah I just saw that. That was G-G-GR-GREAT!!!

He just corrected himself too...and the Raiders just took Michael Bush from Louisville.

Wow...did I just hear a sigh from LaMont Jordan??? (Not to mention Dominic Rhodes...)

I'll tell you one other thing: the Patriots must have REALLY gotten stung by losing to the Colts, with all the moved they've made. And, as much as I can't stand they behinds, they sho' is starting to look like a scary frontrunner for early SB42 champs.

Now I'll just have to pray that DOESN'T happen...

(Oh, what does it matter? I already know Tampa has no shot in hell this year...)

How is Seattle a loser after Day 1 when they only had two picks? Josh Wilson could make a decent punt returner and play a little Nickel while Brandon Mebane might play himself into the defensive line.

As for the best players so far:

-Brian Robison goes to Minnesota at 102

-Tanard Jackson goes to Tampa Bay at 106

-Antonio Pittman goes to New Orleans at 108

Yup, character is no longer a priority for New England.

Yeah, they are loading up, almost like the Yankees after 2004.

I'm not sure if ESPN will be on much in my household during this year's NFL season.

I'm a very casual fan of football, and I don't know much about college players (except the ones that are media darlings). I'm saying this as a dolphin fan. I'm impressed that they got Ted Ginn. That's a plus. I think he can complement Chris Chambers as a long ball threat. (Yes, I am a Chris Chambers fan, along with Wes Welker who's now with the Pats. :cry:)

Who's John Beck? Is he any good? And why didn't they draft Troy Smith in that spot. Apparently I'm overrating Smith a bit, but he's an incredible talent. Personally I think the QB situation isn't very strong in Miami. Given the choice between Culpepper and Harrington, I'd choose Harrington. Unless Beck is Marino reincarnated, I will wonder "what the hell?!"

Beck is interesting to me, I've always been impressed by what he's done at BYU getting that team back to respectability, and being able to pull through in the clutch. The concern for me is his age, he went on a Mormon mission, so he's already 26. On one hand, he might have a better head on his shoulders that would help him make the transition to the NFL, but on the other hand because of his age he may prove to be another Chris Weinke.

Of course after the Patriots win Super Bowl 42 ESPN will shove them down are throats as the greatets NFL Dynasty ever. When we all know the 70's Steelers, 80's 49ers & 90's Cowboys would stomp them into the ground.

This is a little late, but the Bears got Garrett Wolfe yesterday. He should be a good backup to Benson. He is small, but he was the nation's leading rusher last year. For everyone that says he wouldn't have all those yards if he played in a good conference, he had 250 yards rushing and receiving against Ohio State. He should be a solid player for the Bears.

Pittman was a steal, as was Bush.

I can't believe Ben Patrick is still on the board!

And Randy Moss to New England? Wow, I did not see that one coming.
