Which OLB and DBs did you like better there?

I've said this many times, but I think grading a draft is one of the stupidest things you can possibly do because the entire metric of doing so is completely misguided.

Let's consider: we draft Mike Neal in the second. He gets a "grade" of a C because we "could've had him later" and that it was a "reach". Lets hypothetically flash forward six months, and in this instance Neal somehow wins Defensive Rookie of the Year. Suddenly, writers are doing a 2010 redo draft and Mike Neal goes in the top five. Now that "grade" should certainly be looked at as an A, because you got a pro-bowl type player. If the Packers would've taken Demeco Ryan fifth overall in 2006 it probably would've got a resounding F, but the guy sure can play ball and in hindsight it would've been a good move probably.

Seriously, the entire thought process is broken, especially because the entire premise of knocking the picks is based entirely off speculation. Some might say we could've gotten Mike Neal later in the draft and that it was a reach, but in reality, the team drafting immediately following us could've picked him as well. There's seriously no way to know, and its pure speculation by both sides.

The entire premise is stupid.

I agree completely, but it's usually brings out better conversations because people are too lazy to just read large blocks of text.

No, I'm fine with it here, because honestly whatever we talk about has no bearing on anything. We're just a bunch of guys on the internet talking shop. It's all fun and games here, my problem comes when a professional passes it off as fact.

Just getting on my soapbox.

I flash Mike Neal.


After some careful editing, the truth comes out.

I graded it on how I liked it. Something I like gets an A, something I hate get punched.

Mel Kiper is the first to come to mind. It's also because they didn't draft the top player on HIS board so they must have immediately not made the best selection possible.

You bring a completely valid point, but it's more of a subjective thing. For example, Sergio Kindle obviously fell for some serious reason, but he's considered a big steal in the draft.

B.

Bulaga was a great selection. Again it seems that a good player falls right in our lap. I think Neal is good, not the player I would have taken, but the more I read about him the more I like the pick. I love the Burnett pick. Especially since it looks as if it was taking the Bears' pick from under them. I didn't think that we got a good value giving up our 4th rounder, but if it works out no biggie. Quarless seems like he will be like J-Mike. I hope he is. Newhouse should be good. Starks was probably a steal if he is recovered fully from injuries. Wilson could be a good end for our scheme, although I really don't think that we should have taken another DE, we are pretty deep there. That being said, no reason to get worked up over a 7th round pick.

Right now it looks like we got guys that can contribute at some point. They are not really flashy. I am also a bit disappointed that we did not add a LB, I think another player there may add more to camp competition than DL.

Morgan Burnett, Brandon Ghee and Amari Spievey were the only 3, but we got one of the those in the next round. I don't think that I could pick a 5 tech after Neal that I liked.

I would have liked Amari Spievey, Jerome Murphy, Myron Lewis or Brandon Ghee there, but again like I said, at the end of the day, don't think he's a bad player, but it most likely means the end to Harrell, who I would have liked to see given one last chance.

I really don't think that's true at all. I think if Harrell comes to play in camp then we move Wilson to the PS and roll with a rotation of:

Raji, Jenkins, Jolly, Pickett, Neal, Harrell, and Wynn

If you can get Wilson to the PS, the guy was a better college football player than Neal by far, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him ahead of him on the depth chart. We drafted Neal off of what he could be and Wilson based on what he already is.

If teams let Wilson slip to the 7th round I really doubt they're going to be tripping over themselves to guarantee him a 53 man roster spot.

There is absolutely no guarantee that Wilson will make it through the waivers and make it to our practice squad, in fact I'd probably put those odds at less than 5% chance especially if he flashes his potential in the preseason.

My guess is we carry seven defensive lineman: Jenkins, Pickett, Jolly, Raji, Neal, Harrell/Wilson/Wynn (two of those).

I gave it an A. I think this might be one of TT's best yet.
