  • Are Detroit still in the game for one of the DT's?

    I was just thinking with the upgrades Detroit have done on their D-line so fare is Detroit still in for McCoy or Suh? They really need a OT to protect their QB this year.

    Should we risk it and swap picks with Redskins? They get Bradford with the nr 1 and we get Suh or McCoy (I think Bucs will take Suh) with the nr 4 pick? and some extra picks for us?

    if the Skins came calling with an acceptable trade package..then even if i knew beforehand it meant Bradford,Suh & McCoy being off the boards when we pick..id still give it serious consideration..and look towards Clausen,Bryant or Berry..or even trade down again and get extra picks..i wouldnt trade outside of the top 10 tho.

    just like our situation tho..i dont think the new addition/s on our respective D-lines completely rules out us going Suh & McCoy with the first two picks.

      they haven't done much with their D-line.. the got vanden-bosch which will get double teamed, just like Chris Long. they probly will go for one of those beast DT's so that they can get some better pressure.

          I think they could still go OT since anything is possible, but as horrible as they were on Defense, I think they have to go w/ either Suh or McCoy they literally got gashed against the run last year....but wait so did we yet so many want us to take a QB this year.

            Actually they cut Grady Jackson. They traded with the Browns to get Corey Williams.

              well 2 years ago the Lions got gashed in the run and they took a QB, so why don't we? not saying that I want any of these QB's over Suh...

                  I've been thinkin about this what if despags are just acting like they are interested in bradford just to get someone to trade up like say the redskins. Which I think the lions would draft a offensive lineman to protect their investment in qb. So that would leave us with suh or mccoy whoever the bucs didn't get. Just sounds like something they would do seeing as they are saying they would move down in the draft.

                  Bucs Suh or McCoy? Trade?
                  by QRAM24
                  Bear with me here cause I just like making up trade scenarios. Does anyone know if the Bucs are really favoring one of these monster DT and would be willing to jump ahead of the Lions to get either Suh or McCoy. If they are obsessed with one of these two would they be willing to jump to the 1st pick and get the DT they want and give us an extra pick?
                  This would be amazing because we would probably still end up with Bradford but at a cheaper price. Also if someone were to trade up to the 2 spot to get him the other DT would still be there for us. Not a bad scenario just want some imput on if the Bucs are really interested in either in particular.

                  McCoy continues to annoy
                  by AvengerRam_old
                  The one comment (which I've read from a handful of fans and a couple of analysts) that I just don't get is the suggestion that Gerald McCoy should be taken before Ndamukong Suh.

                  Based on what?

                  Go and look up their stats (I've posted them before and I don't have the time of patience to pull them again). Its not even close. Suh's production is essentially double that of McCoy.

                  And what's the context of these stats? Two guys who play in the same conference against the same competition level. Two guys who are close to the same size.

                  I've heard some try to argue that McCoy has better technique. I don't see it. From what I've seen, Suh has great technique for a college player. But, even if McCoy had better technique, SUH DOUBLED HIS PRODUCTION! Imagine how Suh could produce if his technique develops further.

                  If the Rams ultimately decide that they need to take a QB with the first pick, I'll be disappointed, but at least I'd understand the thinking. After all, if that pick were to turn into a franchise QB, nobody would argue with it in the long run. Similarly, if the Rams trade down, I'll have misgivings, but I'd understand the logic.

                  I'll tell you this, though. If the Rams stay a pick No. 1 and take McCoy over Suh, you will hear a loud sound coming from the Southeast United States.

                  It will be me screaming "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!"

                  DTs Suh, McCoy have ability to go No. 1 in draft

                  DTs Suh, McCoy have ability to go No. 1 in draftFeb. 27, 2010

                  Tell Chad your opinion!

                  INDIANAPOLIS -- It's rare that a pair of defensive tackles get as much attention at the combine as the elite quarterbacks. Then again, Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh and Oklahoma's Gerald McCoy are rare talents.

                  Suh and McCoy are likely rated higher on many teams' boards than quarterbacks Sam Bradford (Oklahoma) and Jimmy Clausen (Notre Dame), a rarity in today's offense-happy NFL.

                  The St. Louis Rams and Detroit Lions have the top two picks, and could use McCoy and Suh on their porous defenses. But two questions remain:

                  Who is better? And is either worth taking in the top two selections?

                  Neither question is easily answered. Suh said on Saturday that he would be happy for his "good friend" McCoy if he went No. 1. But he added that he'd "definitely be disappointed with myself not getting it. I'm a competitor. I want to be No. 1. So that's what I'm going to strive for."

                  That attitude is just one of the reason teams like his game. But despite Suh finishing fourth in the Heisman voting (85 tackles, 24 for loss, 12 sacks) while riding the wave of a dominant performance against Texas in the Big 12 Championship Game, McCoy will be ranked higher on some boards because of his ability to explode into the backfield as a three-technique. His quick first step especially works well in a one-gap system where he is full-go from the snap.

                  Because he redshirted, McCoy could have entered the draft after the 2008 season and been a first-round pick. But there was little doubt after an All-American junior year (15.5 tackles for loss, six sacks) that he would take his game to the NFL. After McCoy made his decision to leave school early, Sooners head coach Bob Stoops said: "I've never been associated with a young man who was any more impressive than Gerald." That's pretty high praise, even coming from a head coach.

                  Suh can play any position on the line but is not quite as explosive off the snap. His strength and motor allow him to be extremely effective pressuring the passer (he had 26 quarterback hurries along with those 12 sacks), although there is some concern that NFL interior linemen won't give in as easily as college linemen did to his bull rush. Still, his exceptional stamina, manhandling of opponents using strong, quick hands that added to his length and closing speed make him a likely star in the NFL.

                  Suh said Oklahoma's scheme allowed McCoy to display his explosiveness more than Bo Pelini's scheme at Nebraska. The hesitation off the snap could very well be indicative of his need to handle multiple responsibilities in the Huskers defense.

                  "We played two different defenses, in my opinion. His defense was more or less, he had the freedom to...

                  I think the Rams will draft Suh at no. 1, but wont necessarily keep him...
                  by tomahawk247
                  If the Rams truly do covet a QB, such as Sam Bradford, they may consider a trade down with a team like Tampa Bay to pick up extra picks and still get their guy in the process.

                  However, its known that teams like Washington (at #4) and Seattle (at #6) could also be in the market for a QB.
                  If one of these teams wants a particular QB, they may wish to move up the draft to grab him.

                  So if the Rams do trade down with Tampa before the first pick is made, a team like Washington could easily switch with Detroit and steal the QB the Rams are after. That would leave the Rams in quandary as they would presumably then take someone like Gerald McCoy. Who while still a good DT, wasnt one of the guys they wanted.

                  To prevent this, i believe that if the Rams do want to trade down for a QB, they will do a rights switch after the players have been drafted. The Rams will take Suh at No.1. If Tampa is then in a postion to draft Bradford, they will take him. Only then will the trade take place.

                  If the Rams cant work out a trade, they simply stay at #1 and take Suh. Either way, they either get the guy thats supposed to be the best player in the draft, or the QB that the team wants. But they wont leave themself open to missing the guy they are after.
