2nd and third days of the draft
who are you guys really high on that we could look at getting in the mid to late rounds?
i personally really hope we take a real good look at 'quizz rodgers, i think itd be sick to have sjax and him, and i dont think we would have to worry about rb egos getting in the way, they both are from oregon state and 'quizz has respect.
Re: 2nd and third days of the draft
RB - Derrick Locke, Kentucky - A poor man's Chris Johnson; too small (5'9", 190) to ever be a three down back, but is a homerun threat every time he touches the ball. Great receiver, and very elusive. If the line can open a hole, or McDaniels can "scheme" a hole, this kid will burst through it. Also, a great return man. And a DeSpags pillar kind of guy.
WR - DeAndre Brown, So. MS - standard WR story here; all the physical tools (6'6", 235, 4.5), but there's an injury history and possible work ethic concerns. A lot of flags, but with a clean bill of health and shot of maturity, this kid could be a monster.
OG - Zach Hurd or Carl Johnson - two different players. Hurd (6'6", 317) is a hard worker and versatile. A rich man's Adam Goldberg, which ain't bad for a late round pickup. Johnson (6'6", 360) is a beast with amazing strength, and (as Mayock would say) is dominant in a phone booth; but he won't be a candidate to pull.
DE - Pierre Allen, Nebraska - hey look, the Rams draft a Nebraska DE not named Wistrom or Carriker. Allen is not a superstar, but does his job well. Good athleticsm and the right frame for a 4-3 DE. Needs work on technique and move arsenal, but could develop into a solid starter.
DT - Kenrick Ellis, Hampton - size for a 3-4 NT (6'5", 345), but can move like a 4-3 UT. Great athleticism, very disruptive. BUT......what happened in South Carolina? The interviews will be more telling than the stopwatch.
OLB - KJ Wright, MS State - good all-around LB, can play SAM or WILL; moves well for a bigger LB (6'3", 246), but doesn't always show the best instincts. Great character and work ethic.
S - Eric Hagg, Nebraska - purely a FS, but all the skills needed to play centerfield. Will bite on play-action, but recovers well."Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod

Re: 2nd and third days of the draft
Casey Mathews- great bloodlines, impressive in national championship
Mark Herzilrich- Think he could be very dynamic, cancer is a question mark
Greg Little- Could be the Mike Williams of this year, but with less character concerns
Demarco Murray- I think he will be a dynamic player maker at the NFL level
Randall Cobb- I think he is comparable to Percy Harvin
Cliff Mathews, SC- I think he will turn out to be one of the best ends in the class, but may not be as impressive in the first year.
Robert Sands- I think we like him already, but I really like him too. Super-physical SS, many are saying he could be a better fit at LB (but not in out system)
