I never liked USC, but thanks to ESPN I want Sanchez to fail worse than anyone in history*. He got way more attention than Stafford and Stafford was the top pick going to the first 0-16 team in NFL history.

I'm not surprised that all ESPN cared about were the Patriots, Jets, and Cowboys but it still sickening.

I was hoping the Falcons would get Captain Munnerlyn. When he's healthy, he's a beast.

The Bengals were supposed to be cleaning up their locker room, but their first three picks were on guys that had question marks regarding work ethic.

If Percy Harvin doesn't get completely beat up by opposing defenses, he'll do something stupid within two years.

* Until next year when Tim Tebow is out there.

I'm with you, Hammer. 

I do like the Bengals picks more than anybody's in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.  I believe they got the best LB and the best DE in the draft in those two rounds.  We'll see how it pans out.........

Yes, there's a chance Crabtree will bust and the Raiders will look like the smartest guys in the room, but based on roughly the last 10 years of Raider history at least it's a better bet that Bey will end up a #2 or 3 WR at most.
Well-stated.
Jamarcus Russell, Robert Gallery, and Darren Mcfadden come to mind as "awesome draft picks", while their "free agent radar" has been "outstanding".

Back to my Giants:  I like the 6'6 guy they drafted without ever seeing him play.  He can catch that corner post that was so hard to defend when they had Burress.  This seems to be a great pick.


here is what the WWL says about Barden:

Barden possess rare size for the WR position (6-foot-6, 229 pounds). He also has adequate speed considering his size. The thing we like most about him is his body control and his ability to go up and high-point the football. However, we have some slight concerns about his ability to get separation because he struggles to stay low coming out of his breaks. Complete analysis

sounds like that he will strictly be a Red Zone guy for the first year or two.

i guess with Pat White going to Miami in the 2nd round, Tebow could go in the late 1st next year, especially to somebody that runs the Wildcat.

i think that McFadden will be alright with the Raiders. he's gonna be a good back in the league.

here is the Eagles draft:





NFL Team: Philadelphia Eagles 2009 Picks

RD
PK(OVR)
NAME
POS
SCHOOL

1
19(19)
Jeremy Maclin
WR
Missouri

 
from Tampa Bay through Cleveland

 
Maclin is a big-play threat both as a wideout and a return man. He reaches his exceptional top-end speed quickly and is an instinctive open-field runner who reads defenses as well as his blocks well. Maclin has to improve his route running and ability to get off the line working against press coverage, but his quick feet suggest he's capable of improving in both areas. Video | Complete analysis

2
21(53)
LeSean McCoy
RB
Pittsburgh

 
McCoy has a natural skill to make people miss in the open field that cannot be taught. Although he has some tweaking to do as far as vision and staying north and south, he brings outstanding versatility in the pass game and can be very effective touching the ball 10 to 15 times a game. Complete analysis

5
17(153)
Cornelius Ingram
TE
Florida

 
from New York Jets

 
Ingram brings excellent athleticism and fluidity. He's a smooth route-runner who can be a mismatch when lined up against most Sam linebackers. He needs major improvement as a run-blocker.

5
21(157)
Victor Harris
CB
Virginia Tech

 
Harris does an excellent job of reading the quarterback's eyes, which allows him to get a quick break on the ball. He's also one of the elite defensive backs in terms of ball skills in this year's class. However, lack of fluidity and inconsistent footwork may cause him to move to safety at the NFL level.

5
23(159)
Fenuki Tupou
OT
Oregon

 
from New England

 
Tupou has excellent size and brute strength. He also brings an aggressive attitude with his play. However, he is a bit raw in terms of football intelligence and is going to need high reps to fully grasp NFL blocking schemes.

6
21(194)
Brandon Gibson
WR
Washington State

 
Gibson is more a straight-line WR with deceiving top-end speed to stretch the field. He also possesses above-average ball skills. However, we have concerns about his ability to get in and out of his breaks smoothly and create adequate separation.

7
4(213)
Paul Fanaika
OG
Arizona State

 
from Seattle

 
Fanaika lacks overall agility. He possesses good upper-body strength with the ability to deliver a violent initial punch.

7
21(230)
Moise Fokou
OLB
Maryland

 
Fokou possesses excellent range and is a strong open-field tackler. However, he's more of a straight-line guy who has some tightness in his hips.

i absolutely love the first 4 picks that they made. i think that Ingram could be a steal if his knee holds up. in the past 2 years, Fat Andy has drafted alot of speed in the Draft.

your right. people are acting that he was a projected 3rd or 4th round pick the way people are acting. he was the 25th player rated overall by ESPN and the 4th overall Receiver. they got the player that they wanted at 7, instead of trading down and possibly not getting him.

And that is a horseshit way of drafting. 

I am sure there are fans out there very glad that their NFL team does not run things that way.

The Raiders' picks are getting universally clowned because they are still drafting to compete in the 70s AFL with the wide open offenses instead of today's game.

You have to think, if the Lions were high on Sanchez, they wouldve taken him instead of Stafford. Stafford kinda got an "Oh yeah, the Lions drafted Matt Stafford big deal" type of response from ESPN, when they were practically licking Sanchez's ass the entire day 1. I think he'll be ok...but not the second coming of jesus for fucks sake.

I feel bad that Drew Willy wasn't drafted by anyone. Was really hoping he'd get an opportunity. How do you feel about that LAF?

Once you get down below the 6th round, I think it is just as fine to go undrafted and have a chance to field invites to camp, than it would be to have a team grab the same guy on a lark and cut him after the 3rd preseason game. Willy will get offers to come to camp, and it may work out that he finds a better fit this way.

To finalize my weekend with the NFL Draft 2009:

 

Best picks

Buffalo (Sorry LAF, I thought they did good) - They loaded up on the defense. Defense will win you games.

Green Bay - Raji, Matthews and Lang were all quality picks.

Detroit - They could have done better with their second pick, but it least their selections made sense this year and seem to be planting a seed for the future.

 

Worst picks

Oakland - What else can be said?  This is turning into the new Detroit Lions when it comes to drafting.  Absolutely horrendous.

Tampa Bay - Reaching for Josh freeman was pathetic.

Kansas City - They reached in the first round.  If you add in Cassel then it is not that bad.

He'll be a perfect #2 QB for someone down the line. He signed with the Ravens after the draft. That said, he's better than any of the Bills' QBs.
