Thanks for the comments Doc!

My thinking was that given an awesome line, Leftwich, Redman, Harrington,

or Shockley could maintain our current passing game. Seems to me,

our running game was poor, but when our pass protection was decent, we could

put up some decent numbers passing.

In addition, if we keep Byron and/or Joey for the remainder of their contracts,

they probably will give us each compensatory picks themselves or become trade

bait for a team with an injured QB.

If we lose, Demorrio Williams and Chris Crocker, and don't pick up any compensatory

unrestricted free agents, then we would also probably pick up 1-2 picks in the 2009

draft.

Again, Thanks for the feedback.

I understand where you are going with not drafting a QB. I just disagree. The QBs we have here can keep the ship afloat for a year or two. But we need to draft a QB to develop behind Redman. Henne, Flacco or even a late pick on Josh Johnson would do to develop a QB of the future.

hornsmd, I am not opposed to drafting a future franchise quarterback, especially if

we lost the coin flips and were picking 5th overall instead of 3rd. I am also anxious to

see Joe Flacco in the East-West Shrine Game and a healthy Chad Henne in the Senior

Bowl. I will also be anxious to see the 40 time for Erik Ainge at the combine. He looked

good in his last two games, except for the Interception he gave up for the touchdown

against LSU in the SEC Championship game.

My only consideration for drafting quarterback is:

Are they better than what we have or if there is a really good chance that they will be

better after a year in the league.

As I mentioned above, I appreciate your feedback.

I understand the total postion for the franchise. This is what I would like to see. (in a previous with explanations)

Trade our first down into 9-13 range for a 1st and a 2nd this year and 2nd/3rd next year.

1 Kenny Phillips- S

2a Chad Henne- QB

2b Chris Williams- OT

2c Kevin Smith- RB

3a Anthony Collins- OT

3b Ben Moffit- LB

4 Pat Sims- DT

5 Hermon Johnson- OG

6 Alexis Serna- K

7 Josh Thompson- DT

7b Jayson Foster- KR/WR

We both agree that building both lines should be a priority.

Hornsmd, I usually don't like mocks that envolve trading up or down.....I find that they are not realistic. However, your example is reasonable. The best we could do for trading down to #9 would be an additional second rounder.

Phillips is a future star FS.....I am convinced of that.

I am not a Henne fan, but then again, I wasn't a Tom Brady fan either.

Chris Williams is a solid pick for a need position.

Kevin Smith would be a coup for us in the second round.

Although I like Collins, I don't think that we need another OT. I would look at OG or OC here.

Moffit is the sort of player that every team needs....gritty.

I don't know Sims, but I read that he was a disappointment this season. Tell me about him.

I never heard of Hermon Johnson.

All in all a good mock, even if you included a trade down.

I would love to get Jacob Hester as a late round pick. I think he is going to be a stud in the NFL. He may not be as flashy as some of the other backs, but he runs hard, never fumbles, and just does not give up on any run. I absolutely want this guy on our team. He's the kind of hard nosed player that we need to punch some people in the mouth.

I tend to agree with you that we need to get our OL going in the right direction, but IMO there's no way we don't take a QB in the draft. The rest of the draft looks good though. I'm not sure we need to take Hester, especially that early. With McFadden, Norwood, Snelling, and Mughelli, I don't really see much of a need for him. But, he is a really good player, and very versatile, so I wouldn't be too upset with that pick. Pretty good job.
