What is the fascination with McFadden?We have the same runningback in Norwood,but faster and he carried more of the load in college.Remember Reggie Bush,every year there is a must have rb,& there will be one next year.We can pick a rb later in the draft or give Snelling a chance.If we pick dmc I will be pissed.Ellis or Long is the pick here,games are won &lost in the trenches.

I will throw up if we take Darren McFadden over Jake Long. In fact there is only one player who I can even justify taking over Jake Long...Glen Dorsey and I would be a little frustrated with that.

I'll throw up if Jake Long goes before Darren McFadden.

Taking Jake Long doesn't do anything more to fix our line than taking Matt Ryan would. There are like 4 better LT prospects sitting below him.

I don't really care if it's a need position or not, if Chris Long is available when we pick, we HAVE to take him. You guys are probably saying to yourselves "We have Abe! And Jamaal might not be a bust yet!"

To you I say "What happens when Abe gets hurt and we have to rely on Chauncey Davis as our main pass rusher?" Yeah, that got you thinking. We're one player away from another '07 season.
