    The Name Game

    What's in a name?

    Every year I make my list of players available in the draft who's names either make them more attractive, or make you cross them off the draft board. That sounds silly, but how can you argue with Joe Montana being great, or Jim Druckenmiller or Ryan Leaf not.

    So here's my 2008 "Fair Hooker" list, named for the former Browns receiver with the worst NFL name ever.

    QB - The good - Colt Brennan, Zac Champion, Tyler Donovan, Sedale Threatt.
    QB - The Bad - John David Booty, Omar Haugabook, Taylor Tharp, Brad Roach

    RB - The good - Jamaal Charles, Rashard Mendenhall, Tashard Choice, Dantrell Savage, Chauncey Washington, Lance BAll,

    RB - The Bad - Jehuu Caulcrick, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Danny Woodhead, Kregg Lumpkin, Rolly Lumballa, Kenny Cattouse


    WR -The Good - Early Doucet, James Hardy, Mario Manningham, Eddie Royal, Maurice Purify. Luke Swan, Kevin Challenger

    WR - The Bad - Limas Sweed, Bruce Hocker, Pierre Garcon, Todd Blythe,
    De'Cody Fagg,

    TE - The Good- Darrell Strong, Blake Powers, Derek Fine, Marcus Stone

    TE - The Bad - Keith Zinger, Andy Crooks, Tyler McNitt

    OL - The Good - King Dunlap, Scott Burley, Dan Gore, Nate Safe, Jordan Grimes, Hercules Satele, Brian Stamper, Steve Justice, John Masters

    OL - The Bad- Christian Capote, Carleton Medder, Mike Butterworth, Tyler Polumbus, Andrew Crummey, Ryan Poles, Ben Poynter, Tim Bugg, Jordy Lipsey, Gosder Cherilus

    DE - The good- Rudy Hurdle, Derrick Harvey, Quentin Groves

    DE - The BAd - Johnnie Dingle, Tyler Clutts, Vegas Franklin, Andy Studebaker, Marque Fountain

    DT - The Good - Trevor Laws, Martavious Prince

    DT - The bad- Kyndraus Guy, Josh Muse, Steven Friend, Jason Shirley, Keilen Dykes

    LB - The Good - Dan Connor, Jerod Mayo, Jolonn Dunbar, SHawn Crable, Bo Ruud,

    LB - The Bad- Weston Dacus, Alan Darlin, Derrick Doggett, Marcus Buggs, Durrell Mapp, Cargile Sincere, Mark Dodge

    DB - The Good Orlando Scandrick, Reggie Comer, Tyrell Johnson, DJ Wolfe, JJ Justice, Marcus Watts, Curtis Cutts, Bobby Tatem

    DB The Bad - Brandon Flowers, DeJuan Tribble, Demarrio Bobo, Chris Baloney, David Roach, Ty Sparrow, Quinn Gooch, Haruki Nakamura, Ambrose Wooden

    Colt Brennan, Jamal Charles, Mario Mannigham...in the nicest form possible your picks in those categories are 'misplaced'..try ...Erik Ainge, Chris Johnson, Earl Bennett...happy Dez?...i apologize and this isn't the right post to say it because Barry's post is purely opinion, but at times it gets a little ridiculous on here...and i can't help but say something

    there are ways of saying things and then there are ways of starting wars.

    We try not to start wars here and its something everyone should try.

    i apologize...this post is by far the wrong post to do this because it was purely opinion and he is entitled to it, but overall i am just disappointed by some of the stuff i read on here (i.e. if we trade Byrd/Wroten and this draft pick for this player I think it will work)

    I dont know if the Rams are looking at him but I hope he gets picked, a great young man with talent.
