  1. I don't think Sproles should be that high.
  2. We brought Chris Hope in. I think that should be enough.
  3. QB: Aaron Rodgers, GB RB: Adrian Peterson, MIN WR: Calvin Johnson, DET WR: Larry Fitzgerald, ARI WR: Andre Johnson, HOU TE: Rob Gronkowski, NE LT: Joe Thomas, CLE LG: Carl Nicks, TB C: Nick Mangold, NYJ RG: Jahri Evans, NO RT: Jake Long, MIA Whose gonna' defend that?
  4. I'm not saying Marcus Lattimore isn't a good RB, but I'm not convinced he's better than Trent Richardson and I probably won't ever be. With that said, I wouldn't hate having Lattimore as Michael Turner's replacement, but not in the 1st round. His knee injury is really going to hurt him, and I'd be iffy to draft him in the 1st or 2nd round because of that. As for Barrett Jones, that's just a player that I like right now. I don't know what our needs are going to be or what players are going to show up throughout the season. It's too early for me to be sold on a specific player, but he's definitely a guy that I admire and I love the idea of having our interior OL consist of Blalock, Konz, and Jones for a few years. It's still too early though.
  5. Yep. If you look at the top QB's in the game, you'd find that the best OL-man on their team is typically a guy from the interior.
  6. That's why we just draft Barrett Jones in the 1st round. That man can literally play every position on the offensive line and play them well.
  7. This is something I've been advocating for quite some time. The middle of the line has a much bigger impact in QB production than the blindside.
  8. I wouldn't be so sure about Joe Zelenka. I really credit him for Matt Bosher's slow start last season and I think he's starting to taper off. I think our coaches agree too, because we have brought in some other long snappers to compete with him. Sometimes the difference between a Super Bowl champion and a team honored with the 1st overall draft pick is as small as a long snapper. I don't know about you guys, but I think it's time for a Lombardi. Joe must go.
  9. Lattimore is good, but I don't think he's better than Richardson. I'm not even convinced he's much better than Dyer or Crowell. Luckily, he doesn't have to worry about that anymore though.
  10. Well, that's not what I was alluding to. If you have a unit that can get after the QB very well, then the CB's are going to look better than they are, just like if you have a unit that covers the field well, you're going to have a better looking defensive line. That's why we see guys like Derek Landri almost come out of nowhere. It could be that he's improved himself, but he also played for a much better defensive unit in Philadelphia than he did in Jacksonville or Carolina.
  11. It's easier to mask issues on the defensive line if you have a unit that works well together. The offensive side of the ball is much more focused on individuals.
  12. From his list, I would say: QB: Ryan Lindley RB: Bryce Brown Terrance Ganaway Dan Herron Cyrus Gray - Definitely would bring this guy in if he were to get cut. Vick Ballard WR: Danny Coale OT: Andrew Datko Nate Potter Matt McCants DE: Cam Johnson DT: Kheeston Randall CB: Alfonzo Dennard Shaun Prater Asa Jackson
  13. Jerry and Walker are decent back-ups. We actually drafted Robertson, although it was in the 7th round, it is easier to find guys to fill that hole than it is to find a player of a more skilled position.
  14. I think there is only one TE currently that is capable of being plugged in as a day one starter. It really doesn't look like that great of a class right now, but we will see as the season progresses.
  15. I think our DT situation is a little bit better than our WR situation. I'd like to bring in a stud of course, but I think our back-ups help give us a nice rotation currently. Chris Redman is the back-up QB without a doubt this season, we'll need to bring in somebody to compete with JPW for that job next season though.
  16. I've heard you mention him a few times, so I'm assuming you're quite high on him and honestly if there was an UDFA that I would get behind it would be this man. He's probably my favorite out of all of the guys that we've signed, but I've learned to not hold these guys to high expectations. I do like him though, he has great versatility and could even rotate in as a FB. I love guys with versatility, so that's probably why I like him.
  17. It's hard to have an opinion on something I haven't really seen with my own eyes. I think a lot of people are getting googly eyes though. I remember when Brandyn Harvey was supposed to be the truth, but that died out pretty quickly. We'll see how our coaches feel when the final cuts are made, but history doesn't really bode well for any of those guys and that's why I treat them as if they are insignificant. Unless I see contributions in the pre-season similar to what Victor Cruz did his rookie season against the New York Jets, then I might jump on their bandwagon, but those guys rarely come around.
  18. Well, I'd just like to see a more diverse offense. You have the Packers who can kill you with Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, and Jermichael Finley in a normal set, but they also have players like Donald Driver, James Jones, and Randall Cobb coming in for a few snaps and making good plays. James Jones caught plenty of significant balls against us in the playoff game. We don't really have a receiver like that outside of Harry Douglas. I'd like to think that Kerry Meier could be that guy, but a lot of that is just me crossing my fingers and hoping. The same goes for our UDFA's. Personally, I wouldn't mind signing a stop-gap guy like Bernard Berrian, Plaxico Burress, Greg Camarillo, Braylon Edwards, or even Blair White to help diversify our receiving corps. You have a lot of people that make the argument that the 4th and 5th receivers don't really contribute, but that's complete crap in my opinion. Take the Oakland Raiders for instance. Their offense is built similarly to ours and they had a guy named Louis Murphy as their #4 receiver last season. He caught 15 balls and some people will say that's an insignificant impact, but in 3 games he was 2 for 53, 4 for 70, and 5 for 72. So, yeah. Maybe it was insignificant, but when his team called his name he came through. I don't really see a guy like that on our roster currently. In a perfect world (my world), I'd like to see us draft a guy next year in the mold of a Jacoby Ford. Not someone that we have to rely on heavily, but somebody who can step up in a 4 WR set and beat the coverage for a 35 yard catch and be deadly on ST's.
  19. What do you mean? You've pretty much broken it down. After HD there isn't much promise. I think Kerry Meier could/should be adequate enough for our roster, but outside of that I don't particularly care for anybody else.
  20. I think it's a need, because the depth is quite lacking.
  21. He'd probably make a good TE. It wouldn't surprise me if he was around 260 lbs. after sitting out last season with a leg injury.
  22. Unfortunately, it's the price you have to pay to have an elite QB. A lot of those players aren't really that great anyways and are replaceable.
