Question regarding next yrs draft

Moderator: Football Moderators

Postby Cards24 » Wed Oct 12, 2005 11:02 am

GB and San Fran drafted QBs last year, However, last years QB class was pretty weak. There was no one standup or someone to write mom about (Yes including Alex Smith). As far as Carr, It sounds like the fans in Houston are not really happy at the current time, and I am not sure how much time he has left in his curent contract.

As far as I am concearned all three teams are hurting in the QB position and they would draft Matt.

I think Hass can be a solid #2 WR in the NFL but that's not good enough to get drafted top 5. He has decent size at 6'1 and runs great routes and has nice hands. However from what I've seen he doesn't have the speed that is needed to be drafted that high. Thinking back of WR taken in the top 5 recently they had all the tools. The better question for Hass is if he'll be drafted in the 1st round ahead of WR like Jackson, Nance, Holmes and Hagan.

14 picks are done, I'm hoping to knock out the next 18 in the next few days.

Oh, and regarding the Houston situation I read this.

Scott Wright, Draft Guru wrote:The Houston Texans are still winless and if the season ended today they would have the #1 pick in the NFL Draft. If that holds up what would Houston do? Most assume that they would pass on Matt Leinart since they used the #1 overall pick in 2002 on David Carr, but as Lee Corso would say: "Not so fast my friend". There are whispers that Houston could clean house this offseason and with Carr due an $8 million roster bonus don't think his head isn't on the chopping block as well. Of course they could decide to trade down for a huge package of picks and select the premier offensive lineman they have been looking for, but Leinart is not out of the question. Just a little food for thought.

OK, I know Mike Williams fell out of the top five, but he VERY easily could have been a top 5 pick, and was projected as such by many "experts." He's not even close to fast.... I'd bet Mike Hass is faster...

Mike Hass doesn't have anywhere near Mike Williams size though. To be honest, I am not a big fan of Mike Hass. He is alright but I wouldn't have him ranked above maybe 8 or 9 in this year's draft class. I have only seen him play twice, and he has been pretty good but I don't know if I see him being a better than average NFL WR.

Plus, he's white. :-b

Which will cost him several draft places, I'm sure....

But you can't argue with the stats he's putting up... If he can run better than a 4.6 40, I see no reason why he won't be a top-10 draft pick....

And if he falls further than that, someone is getting a steal.... There are a lot of WR's in the NFL who have been knocked for not having blazing speed who have more than made up for it with crisp, clean routes and great hands.... Chris Carter is the first that comes to mind.....

Oh, and I really dig that sig.... Calvin Johnson will be a stud... He's easily the best college WR out there, and would easily be a top 5 draft pick next year if he was eligible....

CC: How about Mario Wlliams while your at it. Thanks?

I think he as every single entangible to be great in the NFL, it all depends on whether he makes the leap early.
