Somehow I do not see Parcells making any panic moves in this draft.

    WHAT SAY YE?
    Because there's not a Jake Long caliber OT in the 2nd round. If Jake Long goes to Miami, he is a starter the moment he steps off the plane. If Cherilus, Baker or Nicks go to Miami, maybe they start, maybe they don't.

    And you're right Parcells won't panic. However, drafting Jake Long is no more a panic than drafting Chris Long. A panic would be drafting Limas Sweed or Desean Jackson because he's not happy with his WRs.

    I'm with everyone who has selected every one of the main four.

    Either way, the liklihood is that we're going to get a super impact player immediately and 2008 will be a better year.

    Go Rams!:r
    Careful there... you stand to not be picked in the first round if you have ever smoked weed in your life!

    I thought so too. They say I'm not very diplomatic well.....when it comes to the draft (which is a crapshoot) I'm very diplomatic. Stay out of it is my philosophy.

    Cheers, tx

    The beauty of every draft scenario is that we have the 2nd pick. After the Miami Dolphins we're "NEXT".:r
