I can see much this draft happening. Although I still think it would be tough for the Cowboys to take Williamson and pass on Merriman and Ware.
My only big disagreement with you CC is the Broncos taking Heath Miller. They would not have paid pretty big money to match the offer sheet to Putzier if they werent prepared to make him their pass-catching TE. It could still happen, but it would make the Broncos look like complete morons for keeping Putzier, and then letting Herndon walk leaving their #2 CB slot empty.
I totally forgot about the Bronco's signing Putzier, this works out perfectly though since I wanted to give Miller to the Jets at #26 and I can just switch a corner with Miller.
CBM, I totally agree with you. Barron is the pick I felt least certain about in the entire draft. If the top 9 plays out that way I would assume that the Lions would trade down for Thomas Davis or Erasmus James. I felt that Barron was the only player worth that slot that filled a need for the Lions.
If anyone is going to slip and slide in this draft it's Barron IMO.
I had never really focused on this guy and watched him play in a game, instead relying on all the draft reports that say he is the #1 undsiputed lineman with his incredible size and athleticism, but all I see is a chump. I would be dissappointed if my team drafted this guy in the middle of the first, let alone in the top10....
I doubt he's even the #2 OL on the board for most teams at this point. I watched a couple FSU games my buddy (diehard FSU fan) had tapes of and focuses solely on Barron's play and Barron is nothing more than one of those hyped up physical prospects. He's all potential. FSU's line was like a sieve letting in pass rushers, no holes were being opened up on the run, and Barron looked like an average college blocker out there in all aspects of the game, albeit a really big one.
He didn't use his size to his advantage and he didn't really bend his knees and get a drive on blocks. No way this guy becomes an elite Tackle in the NFL, if he doesn't have the skills at this point I don't think he ever will. Just look how poor FSU's offensive line was this season and why would you want to pick up one of them early in the draft?
