I guess this is the reason they have kept hold of Moss then?

If this is the case and with them signing Holt I reckon they'll pick a WR or receiving TE in the first few rounds this evening.

Agreed I think a top TE would be a great pick for NE (I wonder if Paul agrees and if so which one does he believe they have on their radar?)

Another potential need for the Eagles is a third string QB - John Skelton has been mentioned

Hmmmmm

Hmmmm

Anyone would think people are missing Westbrook...

Seen highlights of him on Youtube and he's pretty darn quick. Westy was initially special teams so if we did go for McCluster I reckon he'd start there too.

;)

I also think Andy may go DT in the 2nd round.......he does love them linemen :p

How about Cody?



Hmmmmmmm

Swanny32 23-04-2010 04:37 PM

I really think he's going with a safety, he'd be crazy not to.

ardeo 23-04-2010 05:14 PM

Need OL!!!

Swanny32 23-04-2010 05:39 PM

Yeah maybe a Tackle will be the next pick, Kolb is going to need some decent protection next season and if we take one at 37 then it's one less any of the other NFC East boys can get which works in our favour with two decent DE's now. I really think that we have the edge over our division rivals in this draft.

Can't believe Denver took Tebow. Was shocked watching that.

Clausen will go early today; Don't be shocked if the Vikings take him with the 2nd pick of the day....

If not, there are a whole host of teams picking early today that could do with a QB; Bucs, Raiders, Bills...

Superb first day for the Lions. We know about Suh but I was delighted to see them take a gamble on Best. At the start of the season, he was electric for Cal. Could be a contender for offensive rookie of the year if the chemistry in Detroit is right...

My pick is Damian Williams or Golden Tate at WR. And Gronkowski at TE.

But we need a passrusher and DE as well.

And I :love: McCluster. 3rd down guy and slot WR

BLUE BOY 23-04-2010 06:25 PM

Good 1st round for Seahawks, made even better by the way E Thomas fell to them at 14.

The Rams will trade the 1st pick of today and i reckon they will get a decent amount in return.

pauldrulez 23-04-2010 06:28 PM

Bills and Browns are the 2 teams interested in moving up to #33.

:p

Talking of TE's I am almost as excited to see whether last years rookie, Ingram makes it. If you go back on this thread I was really big on this guy until the ACL injury in training camp. The Guy is a BEAST

pauldrulez 23-04-2010 06:37 PM

He was well-liked, but I believe he had previous injuries as well which was the reason he dropped in the first place.

Indeed. They say the original ACL injury was not fixed properly. Lets hope (for us Eagles fans sakes) that they did it right this time and also that Bradley's ACL is fixed as well. Those two if they are helalthy will be a massive upgrade on what we had in 2009.

Swanny32 23-04-2010 07:09 PM

I would assume the physio and injury care in the NFL is a darn sight better than it is in college football so hopefully they'll be able to put those injuries behind them and go on to be massive players for us over the next few years.

Seen a few people saying that we might take a QB with our 37th overall pick tonight and then look at trading Vick somewhere to get a couple of picks later on in the draft. That would be very interesting although I cant see it happening personally.

jazman 23-04-2010 08:32 PM

One question. How is college football funded? I know kids get scholarships to go there, damn, I was offered one in athletics when I was younger but didn't fancy the move to the States but thatcan't be it. It has to be different to NFL I'm certain.

Presume its tickets and tv revenue, certainly get the attendances and a fair bit of national coverage too.

Spot on, a lot of money will come from TV revenue and then the rest made up by ticket sales. The Buckeyes fill their stadium almost every game which is over 100,000. Loadsa dosh!

Just watched the Total Access coverage of the draft and has got me up to speed quite nicely ...

Even more pleased with the Dez Bryant pick. Unsprisingly he has a few issues but nothing that can't be ironed out. Gives Romo another weapon to use making our offence even stronger in what is a tough schedule this season ...

Interested to know what our Round2 pick will be and who takes Jimmy Caulson (sp?). I have a hunch the Browns will trade up to get him ...
