Gosselin, for one, has him at 8. And he's thought to be genius! But me, I'm just a big dunce for noting how every expert tags him as "overrated," and "inconsistent," and then agreeing. What could I do but drop him to #9?
Even if it was way ahead of what everybody else was saying. Forgive me.
No. You're wrong. Yes, there is an overall salary cap for each team. But there is also what is known as "the rookie pool," which is basically a cap within a cap. Each team is allowed a figure, varying from team to team,
for rookie (and UFA) allocation. Those moneys are already set aside. What forced Samuel out was the Pats decision to re-sign Moss. They simply didn't have money for both. Rookies are a non-factor.
That statement isn't right is it?
There's a rookie cap - but it is WITHIN THE CAP. It doesn't raise the overall cap.
Miami doesn't get extra cap space because they're drafting #1 - they simply are "allowed" to allocate more of their capspace to their rookies because they have to sign the #1 pick.
Do I not have this right? Or does the NFL really give Miami more money to spend than other teams, and give them a higher cap level as well.

I have to say, DRC has dominated at every level. Usually, that's an indicator that the prospect will continue to do so, as evidenced by his Combine and Senior Bowl performances. He can play either FS or CB. How is that a project?
As has been pointed out on numerous occasions, DRC did NOT dominate at his level of college. Not in comparison to guys like Cason who were playing against D1 opponents regularly.

Again, how is that a project?
"Stones," yes! I have them coming out my ears! "Stonings"? Yes! I live for them!
Howard hasn't played 3-4 OLB. So for you to think that his "success" as a 4-3 OLB means he'll have success as a 3-4 OLB means that you don't understand a dman thing. Also, if Howard was as great as you claim, then he'd be rated higher than a 3rd round pick. Also, Howard is a one trick pony. He's a pure pass-rusher and lousy in coverage. Not to mention that he's only average against the run.
Oh, and finally, Howard is underszied for a Pats OLB at 6'1 and 237 lbs. Vrabel, Colvin and Thomas were all over 250.
