matty72780 Posted March 5, 2008 Share Posted March 5, 2008 To start I love the Turner the Burner pick! This kid is 5'10 237lbs, runs a 4.4 40 yard dash, and has avg. 5.5 yards per carry in the 4 years of backing up LT. He is a perfect duo with Norwood in our back field. Draft day is going to make or break this team for years to come. Begin Jake Long vs. Matt Ryan.......Matt Ryan is a great QB and could be the next great QB of the NFL, on the other hand Jake Long is a freak of nature and him paired with second year future star Justin Blaylock could make a once horrible undersized line a force to be recond with. I think we need to go with Jake Long, the reason why is it will help our running game and even with a average QB we could still be competitive and as C.R. showed this past year he could now easily get our recievers the ball better then last year with a solid line in place. A great QB with no line will always be worse than and average QB with a great line. Look how much Joe Thomas helped the Browns, and we have two picks in the second that if we were forced to trade up into a late first to grab Andre Woodson or Brian Brohm could still be a great situation for us. I just think Long is a better rated player then Ryan and would help build the foundation of our team (O-Line). Any thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
