Interesting article about trading up/down: http://www.vox.com/2014/5/7/5683448/how-nfl-teams-ignore-basic-economics-and-draft-players-irrationally

Math!

I don't really like Pryor as much as HaHa.

And Landon Collins is going to be the best Alabama safety to come out ever. The problem is that there's almost no way he'll be on the board when we pick next year barring injury or us having an awful season.

Collins should be one of the best safety prospects to come out since Eric Berry.


Because of their winning culture all Alabama players seem to get overdrafted hence the number of busts. Let someone else take HaSean.

2009/10 was awful for Bama, 2011 started off strong, but ended up badly. 2012 was awful. Have faith in 2013

First round picks under Nick Saban:

2009
Andre Smith - Solid pick. He's worked out with the Bengals and they recently re-signed him to a 3 year, 18 million dollar contract.

2010
Rolando McClain - Bust. Off field problems.

Kareem Jackson - Solid pick. He didn't start off strong. But he's improved a lot over the years and has become a much better player.

2011
Marcell Dareus - Great pick. Pro-bowler. However, just recently arrested for possession of synthetic marijuana in Alabama.

Julio Jones - Great pick. One of the top WRs in the NFL.

James Carpenter - Bust. Option declined I believe for next year. Constantly injured. Never really in shape.

Mark Ingram - Unclear. Greatly misused in New Orleans. Showed great things when given the chance last year. Still time to prove he was worth it.

2012
Trent Richardson - Unclear but if this year isn't good, it's looking like a bust. Never pick a RB 3rd overall. Silly Cleveland. Trent spent too much time in the weight room. Lost a lot of agility.

Mark Barron - Solid pick so far. He's been a good safety for the Bucs so far. Still early.

Dre Kirkpatrick - Solid pick so far. Struggled early on as a rookie CB but has improved with time. Like the other recent picks, it's still early.

Dont'a Hightower - Good pick. Has been a valuable member of the Patriots defense. The Patriots have been taking advantage of his versatility. Makes plays on defense.

2013
Dee Milliner - Good pick. People screamed bust after a couple games last year. Dee really improved as the season progressed and he was actually a good corner down the stretch. Still early, but there's a ton of potential.

Chance Warmack - Good pick. Thought it was a little early to select a guard but he's a good player and performed well for the Titans in his rookie season.

DJ Fluker - Good pick. One of the better tackles from last year's draft class. For perspective, he outperformed Lane Johnson at RT last year. Bright future.

Of those Alabama first round picks, if you told to pick which players I'd currently want on the Eagles, I'd tell you:

Kareem Jackson, Marcell Dareus, Julio Jones, Mark Barron, Dre Kirkpatrick, Dont'a Hightower, Dee Milliner, Chance Warmack, and DJ Fluker.

Jackson, Kirkpatrick, and Milliner because we could use some young talented corners.

Barron because we could use a good safety.

Dareus because we could use a big, talented DL.

Warmack because the Toddfather is aging.

Fluker because he actually outperformed Lane last year.

Hightower because I think his versatility really could come in handy in our defense.

Julio Jones because what NFL team wouldn't want Julio?

I'd take Barron, Warmack, Fluker, Dareus, and Millner.

I have no interest in HaHa let someone else over draft him.

If you're going to call guys who have only been in the league year "good" picks, then it's only fair you call Trent a bust because that's exactly what he's been up to this point.

Trent "dumpster fire" richardson will never be good.

Just because Fluker out performed Lane in year 1 doesn't mean you should trade for him considering the reason Lane was drafted so highly was because of his blue chip upside. Not to mention Lane could/should be our future franchise left tackle while Fluker undoubtedly is better suited to be a RT.

That's harsh. I mean he averages like what 3 YPC? All he has to do is get 1-2 more YPC and he will be a top 15-20 back. What I don't understand is he has the same body type as beast mode, and yet somehow lost his aggressiveness. At Alabama he played JUST LIKE Marshawn Lynch. Like seriously, the similarities are scary. Trent probably has more muscles, but if you get Alabama Trich to put on a Seahawks jersey and ran, outside of a little performance nobody would be able to tell the difference between the two. Not mention the pastafarian dreads they both have.




I honestly, want to see the guy succeed. He has all the tools. His rookie year wasn't even bad. I think he was in the top 3 rookie RB's that year. Not sure the Colts benching him for Donald Brown helped his confidence either. Guy just seems broken. Like one of those children squeaker toys broken.

Wasn't fluker drafted in the 20s? Or was he mid round? If in the 20s can't complain with what you got his rookie year. He had himself a solid season for a first year player, good run blocker.

Actually he was pretty terrible his rookie year, people overlooked it because he scored a few touchdowns.

I think Trent is going to have a good year.

And to the comment about Lane having more upside, I agree. That's a fair assessment.

I just think that as a RT, Fluker was better last year. Doesn't mean Lane wasn't good. He was good and Lane has so much potential. But I also think Fluker is going to be awesome for a long time too.

Not that Fluker isn't good, but I'd like him better as a RG. In this offense, anyway.
