In response to rameakap's comment:
Rameakap, are you out there anywhere buddy or did you go back to hiding your face on the Celtics board?
Sorry, but it was your opinion that we could lump Floyd in with a bunch of guys actually projected to be around in rd 2 or when the Pats picked. That was your 'depth chart' not a projection of future talent, that was only your spin.
Seriously, I said I was done with this, but for you to continue to insult Floyd while at the same time claiming you actually were aware he wouldn't be anywhere close to where the Pats picked (so why isn't he in rd 1 on your depth chart?) is sad. You ranked 11 DT's ahead of a likely top 10 pick, then acted like a defiant a** when called out on the error.
I thought after a few games we could recap where the rookie defensive tackles stood, specifically a hand full I had ranked ahead of your favorite, you remember the one I said was overrated, the one you said would be taken with the 4th pick by the Raiders and 99% sure wouldn't last past the teens but ultimately was taken 23rd by the hapless Vikings...
Star Lotulelei - Listed as the starting nose tackle for the Panthers, my favorite DT in the draft Star has started all three games so far and recorded his first sack Sunday against the Giants, you would have taken Shariff over this guy... good work. Here's a good article about how the Panthers have a superstar in the making with SL: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2013/09/23/4337643/panthers-star-lotulelei-needs.html#.UkGUvCh4Z04
Johnathan Hankins - Came out as a junior, just turned 21, working his way up the depth chart after some injury setbacks, ultimately will be better than Floyd.
Sylvester Williams - Firmly entrenched behind two behemoth starters and the best run stuffers in the league with the Broncos, Williams still has played and worked his way into the rotation of the best run stuffing team in the NFL.
Johnathan Jenkins - currently listed as a backup he has started two games out of three for the Saints. Looking pretty good to me...
Jesse Williams - blew out his knee, put on the IR by the Seahawks
Kwame Geathers - Has played in all three games, listed as the back up nose tackle for the Chargers. Even has a highlight:
Akeem Spence - Starting for the Bucs, sacked Tom Brady on Sunday.
Brandon Williams - Currently 2nd on the depth chart at DT for the Ravens. http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/article-1/Brandon-Williams-Gets-First-NFL-Sack-On-Cam-Newton-/8320f0b4-a1c7-4ec0-abdb-d1a62ac4abb1
Sheldon Richardson - Currently starting for the Jets, has 1.5 sacks.
Shariff Floyd in the meantime, the guy you wanted to take with the 4th overall pick and attacked me for saying he was overrated is currently sliding backwards on the Vikings depth chart, has 1.5 tackles on the season.
It's not really fair to judge rookies after three games but if you take a player in the top 5 you expect them to start and contribute right away. Like I said, he looks like a world beater to me, a real impact player. Sure glad I didn't listen to Kiper and the rest of the experts...
