It is a crap Draft and we have to accept it. Theory is BB builds up picks so he can maneuver. Well the talent is top loaded and falls off severely.The only good news is in our wheel house there is sufficient talent. He needs to burn some picks because we already have youth on our roster, and cherry pick immediate starters, not projects IMO.
I too, have been up and down on this Draft. There will be more surprises than ever with some top names being flops more than ever or the mediocre middle and bottom of the Draft, a few will have the light turn on.
Potential first round grade busts could include:
(some might be injury related)
Some are Draft worthy, but with inflated first round value because of said weak Draft and would drop a round or two.
This is over 43% of those with first round or near first round ratings.
Notice how many small school prospects are pushing into the upper rounds. This means there was less talent in schools like Michigan, OSU, USC, Miami, LSU etc.
In the past you could almost put the first five picks in stone. That set the rest of the Draft more than 50% of the time. This year the weak QB class versus the massive needs for QBs (7 out of the top 10) means that every body that did not Draft Newton or Gabbert will be wanting out of the top ten.
I think you can throw that stupid value chart away if a Team needs quantity, not specific quality at a position. Teams like:
Redskins (needs picks desperately. Maybe #33 (worth way more in trade value since first round in one day) ,#60,#92 gets us to Redskins#10 with perhaps #193. They could get Mallett at #33, they can get a Sherrod or a Baldwin at their #41 and still have #60 and #92. I like #10,#17,#28 in round one
plus #74 in the third, Trade #125 in the 4th for a 3rd in 2012 which will make BB feel better, and finally #159 in the fifth. Five picks should work about right. If they have a first round pay scale, this will be a better scenario)
Broncos (You can maneuver here if Miller was your hearts desire)
Vikings (needs picks)
Both Cowboy and 49er sites have targeted us as trading partners not that it is worth anything.
According to this format for the Pats my choices are:
#159=Murray RB/KR/WR (6'1", 212LBS AND 71 RECEPTIONS IN 2010.WOULD ACTUALLY BE OUR BIGGEST WR WITH 4.4 SPEED)
Plus the obligatory 2012 3rd rounder.
All above should impact the 2011 roster.
