I will say that I think Mack is a good prospect.


Aaron Curry was a combine freak who had great athletic ability but not much else.


I think Mack is a complete player.


If we already had a QB in place, I would have no problem taking him at 4.

The Curry love started before his final season at Wake, way before the combine. He was just a miss by a lot of people.

But I think he got that love because of his athleticism. He was good at Wake but kind of got by without much technique or fundamentals.

That seems to happen a lot.

I remember when Curry said one of the Browns offensive linemen were giving the play away every snap by a small detail he noticed.

Then that game he didn't make a single tackle.

Aaron Curry is the reason I dont fall in love with defenders when I can help it. He hurt me, he hurt me bad

I understand it's only 1 person's opinion, however Mike Mayock stated he would take Mack number 1 overall. He obviously believes he is the best player in this draft.

The only way your team gets better is by taking the best player available when it's your turn.

If Mack is the best player available when we pick, then that's the guy you take.
Agree 100%. He turns into a HoF player and not a single person on this board hates the pick. I think he has a much better chance of reaching that elite level than any of the top 3 QBs.



If one of those QB's even reached the top 10 in the league, then it's worth more than a HOF LB'er IMO
Have Tony Romo remind Ray Lewis of that.



As great as Ray Lewis was, he was not the main reason for winning a SB.

Joe freaking Flacco was.


I'm not even going to get into the Tony Romo thing for the tenth time, but he is not the reason they have not been successful.

He has been inconsistent at times but the team around him holds him back sometimes. Primarily his defense.



If I could choose, I would take any of the top 40 QB's of all time over the #1 Linebacker of all time.


I wouldn't think twice about it.


Patrick Willis hasn't won a thing and he's the best MLB in the game.


I'm not saying they aren't important, but having a top 10 QB is more important.


And the future top 10 QB in this draft class is?



I think Teddy is a good bet. I also have a huge man crush on Carr and think he has all the tools. I think he could be like Rivers.


The whole point that we could draft a HOF MLBer and if we don't have a good QB, it won't matter.


I get it. QB the most important position on any team.

I am not sure I see a top 10 QB in the league in this draft. Maybe Teddy?

Definitely not with you on the Carr thing.

Mack IMO is a potential game-changer. You take those guys unless your convinced of a particular QB.


Mack is Aaron Curry. I remember how this board blew up when we didn't draft him. Now he is an after thought.


Oh I wanna save this one. He will be closer to DROY before he is Aaron Curry.


Ok save it I was right with Curry and I will be right with Mack.

Aaron Curry is that chick you meet drunk at the bar. When you wake up she don't look good anymore... Embarassed

that is all

Show me on this doll what he did to you Very Happy.

Yeah, I believe the majority of us were fooled by Curry. He was pretty much the consensus "draft this guy to any team and he will be a perennial pro-bowler". He ended up being more like a biennial plant, done after two seasons.

I can say the same thing about countless QB's

Browns (Quinn, Weeden) 1st rounders

(Gabbert, Locker, Ponder, Russell, etc..etc..)Random 1st rounders

He never impressed me personally. That's probably the one prediction I've made correctly.

I predict the Jags draft Mack 3rd to play LEO.

see its hard for me to compare Curry and Mack.

Curry just looked that sound LB, who could lead a defense and tackle anything that gets near.

To me Mack is the impact LB that will make a play that will change an outcome of a football game.

Curry's SR year: 105tackles 16TFL 2.5 sacks 1INT 1FF 1FR 4PDs
Mack's SR year: 100tackles 19TFL 10.5 sacks 3INTs 5 FF 7 PDs 2TDs

Mack was just a huge difference maker, where Curry to me wasnt.

I dont care if the Browns draft Mack because he is such an impactful player but to me I just dont want him to go to the Steelers.

I doubt he ever fell in love with any of those players (Quinn maybe but that was purely physical). He would have had to fall in love with say...Blane Gabbert and doodle his name all day long and write him love letters that he never sent but was found by the plumber in the basement when his water heater busted and the plumber laughed at him and made fun but he didn't say anything to the plumber until he was finished because he really needed the water heater replaced and he didn't want to upset the plumber and have him leave without installing it so he waited until he completed the job and by then he was sorta over it and the plumber was a big guy with tattoos and a couple scars so he decided to leave well enough alone and just search the yellow pages for an alternative if he was ever in need of another plumber. Whew, that was a long sentence. Speaking of long sentences I think that plumber had served one, another reason to just let it go.

So when that guy fails (I almost forgot I had a point) you are heartbroken and wonder if you can ever love again...you will...eventually. You might try to make it someone who doesn't remind you of the last one though, so a LB (or plumber) may be a bad idea.

If you read this...I am truly sorry.

If Mack is Aaron Curry, then Clowney is Courtny Brown.

Mack imo is the best non WR or QB in this draft.

I never saw anything, even in Clowney first 2 seasons that make me think he has HOF potential. Product of the ESPN top ten plays hype train.

With that being said i wouldn't take a ILB at number 4.

Teddy, Watkins or trade back and hope Mack or Evans is there with the trade back.
