HUDDLERS' 2009 NFL MOCK DRAFT!

Recommended Posts

great pick here, fellas...

 

I hope this pick comes to fruition on draft day.....

 

 

There are several good TE prospects this year. I'm not saying this is a bad pick, I like th idea of McNabb throwing to a real TE, but I thought he went a tad early.

 

There is the son of a great Packer TE this year too that probably won't go in the first 2 rounds bt I wouldn't mind Ted Thompson taking him as an TE/H back.

Pats pick of Rey Maualuga is a good player but I thought he would go to a 4-3. Good player.

We weren't lookin for a good prospect. We wanted a no-brainer, franchise TE...Pettigrew is the only one close to fitting that description. He is a beast. Had Oher slipped one more spot to us, we'd have had a very tough decision. In our minds, there are a few other positon players that have a good chance at being nice players, and we'll grab one of them at #28.

 

FWIW....had we been allowed to trade, we may have packaged our #21 & perhaps a 3rd or 4th rounder, moved up 3-5 spots, and taken Oher...then traded our #28 and perhaps a pick next year to whoever we felt might take Pettigrew ahead of us.

 

But we definitely wanted to come away from this draft with him, and we got him...if it was 3-4 spots higher than he should have gone, than so be it, but only because we couldn't maneuver.

That's true. He does seem to be the most NFL ready right now. Like I said I'd like to see him partner with McNabb.

Can't say but I have heard he's just an avg receiver. Not a bad pick for them to make though. Hell a TE who can just stay on the field would be a big change, Smith was one of the msot overrated TEs around for years.

Are the previous teams PM'ing the next team in line to pick?

I think the Eagles already have a good receiving TE in Celek, Pettigrew is the best blocking TE in the draft imo and catches well...

Not sure. But I've been PMing everyone as I feel that's part of my duty running this thing.

I'm not really sure how much they can get out of Celek but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with his production last year. And there's no doubt that he was a big part of why they decided they could do without L.J. Smith.

Who would you have selected?

 

the next pick, raji, would have been better than crabtree. the bengals cannot stop the run and need help.

That's what I'm afraid of. I hope he comes through, otherwise, I or someone who steps up will be making the pick.

well, I think Celek is a great #2 TE because of his receiving ability....it's his blocking ability, or lack there-of that will keep him a #2 at best...

Fair enough.But We have two pretty solid starters at DT right now,although a third would certainly help the rotation.I'd argue that DE would be a bigger need as our two starters generate next to no pass rush.Still,if if you pass on a guy that may be the best player on the board,you may wind up regretting it later.Here's an example.

 

In 2001,the Bengals needed defensive help as well.They selected 4th overall,Justin Smith.They filled a "need".He went on to have a rather unremarkable career with the Bengals before leaving in FA to to SF.Selected with the very next pick after Justin Smith was Ladainian Tomlinson.Would the Bengals have been filling a need?No,they had Corey Dillon.

 

Even though they had Corey Dillon,if you could go back in time,who would you have selected?

let's not play this game. i could pull up many counter examples where a team supposedly did take the best player available and ended up screwed. for example, looking back, houston made the right move passing on reggie bush.

 

and, uh, if LT went to the bengals, he would not be the LT we know today ...

What do you mean don't play this game?So you're saying take a LESS talented player because of a past bust?My point is you can try to fill a need and reach,or take BPA.If they're rated fairly equally,take the need.As far as not being the LT we know today,maybe,maybe not.But Corey Dillon and Rudi Johnson both put up good numbers in Cincinnati;one would think LT would as well.What I am sure of is Justin Smith would still suck.

 

You don't like my pick;I get it.But my reason for selecting him is just as valid as yours is for selecting Raji.Both could turn out to be great.

 

FWIW,if the same scenario would come up for the Bengals and they would select Raji,I would have no problem with the selection.I just don't see them doing so when they selected Sims and Shirley in last years draft.

true. my frustration is with the bengals, not you. our play on either side of the line has been so bad for so long that we have to do something to change course. otherwise we are going to continue to suck.

He means hindsight is 20/20 and it's stupid to bring up past examples that way as if it backs one viewpoint or the other just because it worked out a certain way in the given example. As if that should need explaining.

 

Cmon fn ATL I have plans tonight and was hoping to get my pick outta the way...
