Hey Do You Think There someone Better And Stonger Than Jeff Otah ?
I like the pick. I’ve advocated taking a RB #1 earlier this off-season, but after doing a couple of mocks, it comes down to… the only way they take Mendenhall is if Jake Long, Clady, Otah & Harvey are all off the board. And even then… only if they can’t trade down.
I woudn’t mind getting Harvey and would love to get Clady since I think he’s the best overal offensive lineman. But I just have this feeling that it comes down to Williams or Otah. If a trade down can be pulled off, maybe Cherilus is a possibility late in the first if they can gain another second-rounder.
Nice mock! very nice!I was going to throw up if I saw a HB there. You had a very good point about our Oline aswell. If wharton goes back to tackle we are screwed and it want matter which HB we get. We all seen what a first round HB did without a good Oline last time, so why should we make the same misstake twice.
Thank, JB! I agree that we can’t make that mistake again. No running back is going to do well behind a patch-work offensive line. There’s a good chance that the five guys up front this season will all either be new or starting in a new position. That’s bad news. But at least we need to make sure that those five guys are the best five we can have.
The Eagles already have a smallish WR with great speed in Kevin Curtis. They need a bigger target who has a knack for scoing TDs.
I am really sold on Chris Johnson in the 2nd. We still can bolster our Oline with the first pick and we still can get a good HB in round two. Otah with the 1st and Johnson with 2nd and that would be a good combo. Johnson can help our S/T out big time along with the fact he can catch and has good vision. He is going to be good in the NFL mark my words. Thats why a 1st round HB makes no sence when the draft is very deep with HB’s. Scout.com has Johnsony rated a 5star recruit and he could be had in the 2nd according just about every mock I have seen. Plus that fact he runs a 4.2 and you can not teach that along with the fact he is a home town boy. Otah,Johnson what a combo with the 1st two picks. You can not go wrong with these 2 guys. http://profootball.scout.com/a.z?s=127&p=9&c=12&yr=2008&nid=83&lnid=124&rc=4&pid=11
You make a good point, Ian. And DeSean is kind of small. I was thinking of his speed but then the Eagles are a lot like the Panthers. Neither team spends high draft picks on skill players very often. You’re probably right about DeSean going elsewhere.
I still believe that the Panthers need a FS. If Kenny Phillips is available, they should get him. In the second round, they could get Sam Baker from USC to play left tackle. He’s a four year starter, and can produce
