I dont know about that - they already have probably one of the most coveted backup QBs in the NFL in Volek. I would be shocked if they drafted Leinart.


Yes, but Volek is also 30 years old. There's so much more that goes into this than age, though (ability, marketability, etc.). Let's also not forget that Norm Chow is the OC in Tennessee. If Leinart is on the board when the Titans draft this April, well, 15 minutes later he won't be.

i think my favorite part of the draft was the claim that leinart was the "best QB prospect since p. manning" becuase manning wasn't even the best "prospect" the year he was drafted. at least, that's what the chargers thought. ;-)

Agreed ;-D Although I don't hate Kiper as much as most. His inseason rankings are horrible but besides that his rankings aren't too bad. He's a big reason why the draft is as popular as it is. If you guys are really interested in discussing the draft they also have a forum over at nfldraftcountdown.

I didn't even think about that. Great point ;-D

Chow will most likely sell Lienart to the entire staff of the Titans. I think they'll buy it too...

Can you Imagine the possibilies with those 2 reunited... If I was a Titans fan I'd be drooling.

My only comment is who in the blue hell names their kid D'Brickashaw?

That's just stupid and cruel.

Deuce
Plaxico
Hines
Duce
and these aren't even cultural names to my knowledge (Hines is half korean? I think.... so maybe that one is)
who knows if D'brickshaw has some cultural meaning/popularity.

The point is Football names are often funny. Have you ever met/heard of anyone named deuce outside of football?

2004 - QB Ben Roethlisberger
2005 - TE Heath Miller

Pittsburgh got THE steal of the draft two years in a row, why wouldn't we score the hat trick?


Deuce's real name is Dulymus Jenod McAllister. Can't really blame him for going with Deuce, for whatever reason.

No way in hell PIT got the SOTD in 2004 and 2005. First of all, I'm going to say that it is pretty hard to get a SOTD in the first round, because there's always some kid who becomes a star in the later rounds of the draft. In 2004, I believe the SOTD is Demorrio Williams at 4.5 (101 overall). He's turning into an impact player at LB...with a very low pick, as well. Darnell Dockett at 3.1 is playing good ball (dropped due to attitude questions) and when it's all said and done, Tatum Bell, Greg Jones, and Julius Jones may have had some damn good careers at RB out of the 2nd round. Love to Karlos Dansby, Madieu Williams, and Michael Boulware, too. The latter was a freaking LB in college and has made the transition to SS very well.

Miller may be doing very well in TDs right now. But come on, that just means they're looking for him in the red zone. That's what GB did with Bubba Franks a few years ago. I do agree taht he has very good hands and is a solid ballplayer, but he's never going to reach the level of Gates, Gonzalez, and Shockey. He will, however, be around that of Heap. He doesn't have the athleticism of the first group to ever be that good. But don't get me wrong, he's going to be a solid player...I live in Charlottesville and have seen him play. I think it's literally impossible to call an SOTD for 2005 this early, but as of now, I am feeling Odell Thurman, Lofa Tatupu. Watch out for fellow Cav Elton Brown (slipped from the first due to attitude/injury questions...absolute mauler at OG), Nick Collins at FS/CB, Vincent Jackson, Larry Brackins (two very raw projects), and Adrian McPherson. AD has the best tools in this QB set. However, he also has the worst toolbox. If he can ever get his head screwed on straight, watch out.

I am not all that sure how the Packers would end up with the #1 pick, I would be shocked if they finished worse then the 49ers and the Texans. I really wouldn't mind seeing the Packers take Bush, but he probably won't be there when we pick. Unless we hit another long streak of loses, but I have a feeling we'll win at least two more games, most likely more.

I don't really think Joe Thomas will enter the draft this year, living in Madison if there was a good chance I think I would've heard a lot more about it, the only Badger that I had heard about leaving early so far would be Brain Calhoun, but even that I don't think will happen. Thomas would possibly be the best OT in next years draft. Going back for his senior campaign would also give him an extra season to improve his pass blocking skills, Thomas was originally a tight end so he is still new to the position. I'm guessing that both Winston and Ferguson are seniors, correct me if I am wrong though. Got to love the big farm boys that Wisconsin gets on the O-Line. ;-D
