Id be pretty upset if the Lions took a RB.
The "expert" determined the DETs Critical Need was at RB.
Currently the Lions have James Stewart who should be fully healthy next season, Bryson, Cobourne, Gary, Pinner, and Trejo. Thats 5 RBs in the 24-28 age group, and a veteran. This guy cant tell me that the Lions most glaring weakness is at RB. Sure, its A weakness, but it isnt the weakest spot by a longshot. I cant see the Lions going with anything but a DE, DB, or OT.
Also, maybe some of you Skins fans can back me up here, but isnt WAS in desperate need of an OT?
The JETS going after a WR? Anyone gonna comment on that?
This "expert" is way off after the first few picks, and even saying that Im probably being generous.
Gamble falling all the way to 27th
I have some comments for you. Those Lions RB's that you mentioned don't have near the talent that Jackson and Jones do. One of these two backs from the draft would upgrade that Lions offense and Harrington would actually be able to do a little playaction. These two have more talent than any other RB that has come out in a few years.
The Redskins don't need an OT unless you think there is something wrong with All-Pro Jon Jansen and Chris Samuals. They also brought in FA signings last year of OG Dave Fiore from the 49ers and Randy Thomas from the Jets. They are solid on the O-line and unless a great prospect falls will not address the need in the draft until at least the 3rd round.
The Jets do need a WR. They tried to get Darrel Jackson but it fell through and they will most likely try again unless his hands scar them off. Santana is solid, Conway is 33 and Chrebet is about done with all of those concussions he has had. So YES! The Jets need a top WR for Penny to throw to. It is a priority.
Chris Gamble is a great player, no doubt. But he is looking at a mid to late first round selection by most draftniks. There are a lot of solid CB out there and he is one of them. But with all of the talent in this years draft he will fall a little. This year is going to be a great for FA and draft signings. Huge offseason for teams.
