Order in the court!!!

Postby tj123456 » Thu Apr 05, 2007 2:09 am

Our draft priorities are as stated:

1) CALVIN JOHNSON WR (should he fall this far)
GEORGIA TECH
I dont care who you are, this kid is going to be phenomenal. There are just certain CANT miss picks that seems to have a certain aura around them, this kid is one of them. We all knew reggie bush, sean taylor, carson palmer, champ bailey, orlando pace, bo jackson, john elway, o.j. simpson, dangelo hall, chris samuels, derrick johnson, shawne merriman, lavar arrington............................. were CANT miss picks.

Not that we want him or anything, just making an observation, I believe that Jamarcus Russell is going to be the biggest 1st ROUND bust since Ryan Leaf was taken 2nd by the San Diego Chargers.


2) GAINES ADAMS DE(hope the arizona cardinals do not take him)
CLEMSON
If there was any question as to who was better this past season GA or JA(Jamal anderson), the combine should have answered that. JA had one more sack GA and despite the fact that florida is in the SEC, the ACC has the overall tougher opponents. (and JA didn't have to play florida)

Also, this team has not had a DE to be truly excited about since we all believed that Bruce Smith was going to produce 15 sack seasons for us, ohhh how naive we are truly are.

3) AMOBI OKOYE DT
LOUISVILLE


Probably going to be the best defensive player drafeted in this years draft. Amazing potential., physical attributes, achivements, and incredebly young. The reason people say that he has not reach his full potential yet is because he is only 19 and is still growing into a massive from. Mark My Words, this kid is athletic enough to be the next young Warren Sapp. If we take Allen Branch, and this kid is still available then I am going to go streaking through a church wearing a cowboys helmet, cowboy boots, and a big blue star on each cheek yelling how 'bout them i'diots.

Thanxxx for listening to me vent.

much appreciated................................

Yeah, like Ryan Leaf, Desmond Howard, Robert Gallery, Tony Mandarich, etc.

All high 1st round picks seem like they're can't miss picks. That's why they are high first round picks....

Why? JA didn't work out at the combine. The combine told us nothing about them head to head. And in general, it doesn't tell us much anyways. Look at Mike Mamula. Boy, he rocked the combine, and had such a great NFL career after that, didn't he?

I have my eye on Michael Westbrook or Heath Schuler.

No, what we're saying is there really ARE no can't miss prospects.

Plus, we can go through a whole list of highly drafted WRs, coming out of college, who were considered "can't miss" prospects, and who were massive busts.

Someone very similar to CJ in skill set, athleticism and size is Charles Rogers. Remember him? Yeah, 4 years later, after being the 2nd pick in the NFL draft, he's out of the NFL.

He was a can't miss, once in a lifetime player, too.

:shock: Yes, we do. However, he IS NOT similar to CJ in anyway. Carlos Rogers plays for the Redskins and is a DB.

You must mean Charles Rogers. :up:

If Calvin Johnson avoids injury he is a can't miss prospect and there is no way to argue otherwise. He has unprecedented physical tools and attitude.

There has never been a "can't miss" guy before who has busted out, right? Oh right, THIS is the guy there is NO chance he will be a bust.

I am so glad you can predict the future without any hesitation. Knowing what will happen in the future must be really cool!

I bet you make a killing when you bet on sports.

Sorry, there just isn't any such thing - not even CJ. That isn't a slight on Johnson at all, there is just no such thing as a can't miss prospect.

There are a hundred names that started as 'can't miss' guys that missed.

brad7686 wrote: and there is no way to argue otherwise.


Because you say so??

Well, we may as well just start closing every thread that someone posts a definitive opinion to, then eh? I mean, there's just no refuting definitive opinions right?

Sorry, until the guy's stepped on to an NFL field, it's nothing but conjecture... from ANYONE... and I'm willing to bet that many here share that opinion.

There's PLENTY of ways to argue 'otherwise', but I firmly believe that conversing with anyone who has dug their heels in, is pretty much a complete waste of time and energy. Since you obviously feel that your opinion on this is finite, perhaps you fit that category.
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

That's your definition of a can't miss prospect???

Let me introduce you to:

Anthony Miller 5 1000 yard seasons.

Andre Rison 5 1000 yard seasons.

Mark Clayton 5 1000 yard seasons, *picked in the 8th round of the draft, by the way*.

Drew Hill 5 1000 yard seasons *picked in the 12th round of the draft*

Hell, even Joey Galloway has had 5 1000 yard seasons.

All good players, sure. None worthy of Hall of Fame talk.

That's your measurement of can't miss production, that we should trade your whole draft for?

For the hype he's getting, he'd better be having 10-12 1000 yard seasons, and a Hall of Fame career....
