I have been reading the forums on this website for a couple of months and just joined so I could share my opinions. Please read and reply with insightful reasoning on why you may agree or disagree with my picks.

Thank you!

Remaining Free Agency:

Sign -Jamie Sharper - not as fast as Bates would prefer, but quality guy who's always on the field, makes tackles, and provides leadership and work ethic that could help take pressure off Barnett and might give Hunt a kick in the you know what.

Sign - Arturo Freeman - played for Bates in Miami so he knows the system and can help teach it to our younger guys as well as everyone else. can play both safty positions and can fill a hole until a possible rookie is ready.


Trade first round pick #24 to the Eagles, who always likes to move up to grab the guy they like plus they have a number of picks this year, for their first round #31 and third round #77.

Trade second round #51 and third round #77(from eagles) to the Browns for second round #34 - Browns need the picks.

First Round #31 - Brodney Poole - FS - Oklahoma - great talent with decent speed. likes to play back in coverage, which is where Bate's safties play. can come up though and play the run. Good playmaker and someone who can take D. Sharper's place.

Second Round #34 - Justin Tuck - DE - Notre Dame- speed rusher off the edge. Bates likes guys like this, who can line up wide and get around the corner to pressure the qb. he likes two big guys in the middle, ie jackson and hopefully either hunt or washington, and two speed guys on the outside, ie kgb and tuck. kampman can play obvious running downs. tuck and kgb would be comparable to Jason Taylor and Adewale Ogunleye, who Bates had in 2003 his best dl with the dolphins, in both size/speed and skills.

Second Round #58 - Ernest Shazor - SS/OLB - Michigan - Big time hitter! Big body at 6-3 and 226lbs. decent speed. can play SS at this weight and is decent in coverage and will make wr pay for coming across the middle, ie Rodney Harrison, Roy Williams, Sean Taylor type. Has the body frame to gain some weight and make an outstanding olb, using his coverage skills on te's and rb's.

Third Round #89 - Jerome Mathis - WR/PR - 5'11, 189lbs, 4.32 40 yd dash - Hampton - moving up on the draft boards. would be upgrade over Chatman for punt returns and a fifth wr until he developes more consistency and route running ability. covers the possibility fergusen can't perform like before his injury and security in case the horrible would happen with walker leaving in fa next year.

Fourth Round #125 - Richie Incognito - C/G - 6'3, 305lbs., 4.84 40 yd dash - Nebraska - man with a nasty streak. had off field problems or would be a much higher pick. well worth the risk here. could become unbelievable center or lg. could pull like wahle with his speed and agility. sit him on the bench for a year and send him to nfl europe to mature some. next year could be a phenom.

Fifth Round #143 - Jonathan Welsh - olb - 6'3, 244lbs, 4.51 40 yd dash - Wisconsin - bigger and/or faster than most top lb prospects. played de for the badgers, but would have to make the move to olb. is accustomed to taking on blockers, but gets engulfed by big offensive tackles. would only have to deal with fb's, te's and pulling g's with the move. is quick and could be a specialist on passing downs to blitz until he learns position better. would be great on special teams.

Sixth Round #180
- Jordan Beck - lb/ss - 6'2, 233lbs, 4.46 40 yd. dash - Cal Poly - played lb in college, but could be moved to ss. would be a prospect, but at this point in the draft who isn't. this guy has great potential and upside and like welsh would be great on special teams. would keep fergie off the punt coverage teams and give him a chance to stay healthy.

Ideas and suggestions for changes more than welcome. Constructive criticism only please.

It WOULD be a great offseason if even most of that were to happen.

The Packers might want to take either Brodney Pool or Justin Tuck with their #24 pick because Pool won't be there at the #31 pick and Tuck won't be there at #34. They can have one or the other, but not both.

yeah i don't try to know everything about the draft but i'm know poole won't be around 31 as well as tuck that late either. and as for all the trading i don't see it happening. we need to make sure that we get the people we won't so trading down doesn't seem likely when we're that close to the bottom already.

as for the FA moves. exactly what i've been saying since i saw that sharper was available. he doesn't have barnett speed but 164 tackles in 2003 and 137 in 2004 this guy finds the ball so i'm not at all worried about him not fitting in. those numbers are gawdy as all get out.

C+ because of the draft trades.

See my grade is incomplete, simply because a lot is hinging on how the draft goes, and free agency isn't over. If things continue the way they are going, their grade is F. If they do the things you say they should do, their grade would be an A. I truthfully think it'll be some where around a C or B.
