Thread: Draft Perspective 2012

    Draft Perspective 2012

    Lets jump right into it.......

    Reese has always been a "draft now for the future" type of guy.
    Last year we knew Ross, Manningham, and possibly Jacobs might be gone. What did Reese do? Draft Da'rell, Jernigan, and Prince.

    Reese quietly invested in the future of our LB core as well, 4 rookies eventually made the roster, 2 were late draft picks.

    The 2012 Draft will be interesting because we have no real glaring needs, the draft will be conducted on the premise of aging positions. This brings me to a scenario that would play out like this:

    Round 1: OT
    Round 2: C
    Round 3: RB
    Round 4: CB/S (the highest rated guy left)
    Round 4: G
    (You can flip-flop the 4th round picks depending on player rating)
    Round 5: TE
    Round 6: QB
    Round 7: Mr.Irrelevant (Im guessing a skill position here, maybe WR or another DB)

    Only thing that worries me is not drafting a DE this year, then i remember we still have Kiwi on the roster.

    I think in the 1st and 2nd rounds we'll go BPA, cause like every year someone of huge talent is gonna tank in the draft and fall to us

    I could see OT, DT, DE, Safety, RB, WR, TE, CB
    Round1: AA-Ron Donald, DT, Pitt
    Round2: Kareem Martin, UNC, DE
    Round3: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington
    Round4: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas
    Round5: Cyril Richardson, OG, Baylor
    Round5: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers

    You cant draft by position, it just plain doesnt work.

    I think early in the draft we need to look at LB again.

    Ok, lets say you say OT in the first, the top 3 OTs are gone, and there isnt an OT there worth the 32nd pick, you dont take a mid 2nd round OT in the first just because you want to draft that position.

    Thats how horrible drafting teams draft.

    First priority is to draft good football players, regardless of position. If you have a group of good football players where you pick, then you take the one that fills the biggest need.

    you make a good point..... the reason there's 2 O-linemen going first is simple, Reese is going to take a linemen first whether it be Center, Tackle or Guard with a 1st round pick
