    WOW! I knew Houston wasn't going to draft anyone, including Bush, without a deal in place, cuz that leads to serious frustration and if he holds out, well, that'd really suck.

    In a bizarre world, Bush falls to #5 or 6, GB or San Fran.

    NO POSSIBLE WAY he falls past #4. I sincerely believe he will go @ #2 to the raiders or 49ers who will trade up to get him.

    The Bears will take ANOTHER stud LB, and be even more dominant. No point in even playing this season. Just mail the rings to chicago.

    I can see NO demanding too much, no one biting, and them taking D'Brick or Hawk. And doesn't TN and NY really need a QB? I can see TN taking Young and NY taking Cutler. GB taking Bush.

    If Bush fell that far, GB would take him, but its impossible. No way he falls that far. Im positive the jets would take him if he were around.

    Ryan Leaf is putting himself back in the draft pool and looking good as a third rounder.

    I guess delivering pizza wasn't paying well enough.

    I know, he was a coach somewhere, but I hope the experience has matured him and sharpened his focus.

    Jets had talked about trying to trade up to get Bush at #2 but NO is asking a pretty hefty price tag. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. No way he gets by 4. If NO passes, I see the Jets and Titans swapping picks (with TEN picking up some other picks) and Bush will be gone by 3.

    Man, New Orleans signs Drews Brees, then they nab Reggie Bush. I think it's safe to say they're having a good off-season.

    i kept pretty quiet about all the draft stuff, because nobody is an expert on this kinda thing, especially the experts. But i held my tongue on Vince Young. i've seen USC play and Lienart is going to be an average qb at best. He doesn't have any mobility or a cannon for an arm. Vince Young does, and from witnessing the championship game he's got ice water in his veins. i betcha this guy is a lock pro-bowler, and a potential hall of famer.
    So i wasn't too suprised to see things pan out as they did.
    Also...
    Watching Reggie Bush play will be a treat in coming years too. You can tell if he stays healthy, that he will be one of those guys you'd buy a ticket just to go watch him in action, like a Barry Sanders.

    Seahawks draft standup athletes, making character paramount, which isn't a bad idea when filling gaps in a championship team.

    I dont think Vince Young is that good. He certainly CAN run,but he doesnt have that great of an arm, and struggles with accuracy. Jay Cutler EASILY has the best arm of the three, and is mobile, though not to the level of Vince Young. Cutler went to a good team though. Not to a bottom feeder like TN or Arizona. He'll be the most successful of the bunch.

    Maybe so, but have you ever even seen him play in a game? That's why draft talk is so funny, you just never hear about these guys til draft time. Except for the few obvious stars, and even then there are intangibles that come into play where they don't pan out as pros....

    Yeah, I dont really talk about people unless I see them play alot. Cutler went to Vandy (a few blocks from my house), so I saw most of his games this year. He's the next Favre. Super tough, throws some INTs, but he's a warrior. I think Young can work out after a couple years of learning, I just dont see dominance in his future. You cant rely on raw athleticism in the NFL (see Akili Smith, Michael Vick) you have to seriously work hard. Peyton Manning is the perfect example. Not quite a physical speciment, but a student of the game who knows exactly where and when to throw. Same with your bald guy up in Seattle.

    LMAO @ the Bills...who REACHED on EVERY pick. All the guys they selected could've been take a full round later:rofl:

    ..oh yeah, good luck with Dick Juaron too. He was AWFUL as the Bears coach, and AWFUL as the Lions DC. Why he keeps getting jobs is beyond me.:rofl:

    maybe...too much misinformation going around to determine what the actual result of the test was.

    Which means hes going to have a really hard time learning the complex offenses of the NFL, I don't think he will be anything special in the future.

    Did Leonard Pope (TE) go in the 3rd round?

    Why don't they recruit sumo wrestlers?

    Lendale White (I think) had more yards and TDs than Reggie Bush last year.

    I like Denver picking up Jay Cutler. Aggressive and smart move.
