Out with the free agency rumors.
In with the draft rumors.

Draft is a month away, and the smoke will be heavy. The media was pretty damn accurate at guessing what Heckert was going to do. How about the dynamic duo of Banner and Lombardi?

I'll kick it off with this one from Peter King:

Quote:
I am hearing doubts on Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner (could drop out of the top five), hopes about West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith (the Jags are interested, preliminarily, at No. 2), no holes on Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel (still the odds-on favorite to go No. 1 overall) and one very big workout and interview extravaganza coming on Wednesday: Matt Barkley, the USC quarterback, will throw in earnest for the first time in front of NFL scouts since injuring his shoulder in November.

So... bring us your rumors and general draft chatter.

Rumor: Whoever we draft, will cause a forum wide debate.

That is an outright lie! It's not a rumor, that's a certified fact.

Last year, most in the forum wanted Richardson, and we got him, so not much arguing there. Although since we traded up for him, yeah, we argued about that.

This year, I agree. There's not much consensus, and we will argue about the pick. Belittling Banner and Lombardi will just add fuel.

Should be a good time. Smile

You could say that. Laughing

The odd thing was that no one was happy with the pick at the time it happened. I mean, no one. But we still argued about it for months.

I honestly didn't hate it, just because I was that low on McCoy.

actually I was really happy with it cause I was a big fan of Weeden.

I think the pick that cause the most debate was the Schwartz pick because everyone wanted other tackles at that pick and wanted a WRs too

You think there was more debate over the Schwartz pick than the Weeden pick?

That's certainly not how I remember it.

The only person who was actively rooting for us to draft Weeden was Rabid Dags because he was a huge troll who wanted to watch the world burn. Just about everyone was ticked at the time and the entire footballs future board was mocking us for it.

I loved the Schwartz pick. People seemed pretty neutral about it here.

Maybe my memory is blurry.

There were too many trolls to keep track of.
