    Well, I don't think he would have been there in the 3rd round that's for sure.  But the pick did surprise me.  I don't agree with it either.  Should have traded down if that option was available.  I hope they trade up in the 2nd round.  There's a sweet spot there.  We'll see.

    I do not get the logic behind arguing that Easley could have been a top 10 pick had he not been injured. He has been injured... on both knees! We are now hoping that he does not have to overcompensate and stress another part of his legs to injury.


    If you have a healthy interior DL maybe it would have been fine. But both starting DTs are coming off injuries of their own, that they may not fully recover from. BB could have picked someone who was not necessarily a sure fire star. He could have gone for someone who was simply an upgrade over Jones and Vellano, but whose health record suggests he could stay on the field the entire year.


    I hope now he goes for a double dip as a form of insurance.

    The draft guru Mike Mayock of NFL Network had Easley as #64 on his top 100 list. From that POV, he likely could have waited.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    The most baffling pick, however, was Jacksonville; they could have traded down and still gotten their man. Atlanta was looking to trade up. This is why Jax always stinks.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    The usually heavily criticized Browns actually had an amazing 1st RD.


     


     


     




    i don't think the actual draft is based on Mayock's POV. i don't think NFL teams give two squats about Mayock's POV. it's irrelevant to anyone not sitting in front of their tv.

    It was just an indicator; and it is not completely irrelevant IMO. To each his own.

    Let's try something. If you love the pick try not to use the words "if" and "when" in terms of health and see how much you can say about him.


     


    He is a big boom or bust player that could start on the PuP. He could be the next Randle or he could be the next Emtman.

    Your statement is true of every player taken in the draft. It doesn't matter the draft position, every player taken is a 50-50 proposition. So why all the angst? All it does is make you die younger!

    Seattle & ALL RE: Easley's Injuries, in kind-


    I'll offer 1 view, based off of Seattle's regard, whom offers his concern with the most succinctness & brevity (so I'm using his)...


    Easley really DOES have a few FREAKISHLY "elitest of Draftable DT Elite" Qualities to his- well, him:  #1.  Extremely polished in backfield prescence/pass-rush/beat the OL Total array of moves; #2.  A Simply CRAZY fast get-up & 1st step/jump upon the snap for any sized DT, College or Pro...Consistantly, he comes off as silly faster than everyone else on the LOS; #3.  A Violent WANT & Play/Translatable-play-skill to get in-to the backfield from the interior of the LOS in order to cause as much havoc as humanly possible...from his almost, like I said, "P#ssy" attitude of going all at 'em in a "get the f- off me, ya got no business being even near me" mindset towards the OL blocking him, translated in-to the same simply utter "p#ssiness" in his body movements, swiping, pushing, hand-punching, jerking ALL violently (think sorta maniacally), To Do Get INTO the backfield;  #4.  Keeps going with his non-stop motor, ALL game long...some people are mentioned to have non-stop motors of "not taking any play off"...Easley does this, without appearing to tire while not taking any play off...the "non-stop OF Non-stop motors"; #5.  His "Spikes-esque" Instincts on the LOS...his capability and trend to continually shuffle, shift, roll, randomly & continuously move in whatever way, a couple inches up to a couple yards 1 way or another as a Interior DT just pre-snap, Is Fantastic-  His instincts to adjust & shift to where he senses that he can penetrate through & disrupt the backfield &/or be in the better spot to make a play, Pre-snap IS-Ridiculous...like I said, it's as if you placed Spikes' Instincts to pre-snap movement towards the greatest intent of play-disruption/towards play direction, WithIN  a DT; #6.  ALL accounts have regarded his exceptionally high dedication off-field AND on-field Total Drive to succeed/better...weight-room, etc., etc., etc..


     


    I said it earlier...IF ALL pans out- Think Sapp-  Easley with 15-20lbs of balanced strength muscle, fluid weight distribution...so as not to effect the speed, skill of his game nor his frame proportionally...within 2 years?  Think-Sapp-esque- In The Ideal.  yes, it IS fair to say THAT type of potential IS available...


    And here's the wildcard, right?  =2 (I believe) rebuilt knees.  But here's the catch, which is truer & truer seemingly each & every year that goes by with Pro athletes:  Unlike 20...or even just 10 years ago- These athletes with things like ACL tears and rebuilt ankles and knees and shoulders, are NOT just "Not" Reinjuring them (say as in the past)...Rather, there are sooo many cases now of these guys coming back with stronger knees, ankles, and shoulders, than they ever stated previously to possess, in their entire sporting careers.


    Anyway...so that's the gamble.  And in this day & age, It really IS, A Very Highly & Fairly Calculated & Intelligent 1 with a high degree of probable success & even higher payoff.

    Hey... How'd you make it 14K posts without getting banned? LOL


    I moved down to the Tampa area a couple years back and I haven't been able to remember my password. In a druken stupor one night, a few months ago somehow I remembered it after trying every email and password combo I've used over the years.  S.O.S with Belichick and the draft Huh? I really get a kick out of it at this point. Dude.. Everyone in Tampa hates the Pats. Anytime I say anything they throw Spygate up in my face.  Looking forward to better draft picks from RD 3 on. Glad to see you're still here.
