They pass all the time for a reason. I don't think Maroney can handle a full NFL load most of the time, and he really doesn't hit the hole very hard.

Re: it is never too early to take a look at how the draft might shake out

I think Billy-Check could groom McFadden easily for the gig. It is crazy to think about such a high pick for such a damn good team.
Re: it is never too early to take a look at how the draft might shake out

In all seriousness, it's disgusting the Pats are going to get McFadden or Dorsey.
Re: it is never too early to take a look at how the draft might shake out

with bilicheck,history will tell you they will trade the pick:bank:
Re: it is never too early to take a look at how the draft might shake out

I dont know about the Laurinatis pick with the Jets. He played in back of a good defensive line the past 2 years in the big ten which has had its worst years in a long time !!! Carpenter and Hawk have been unerachievers in the pro's who played in front of James his first year at OSDU. First round pick maybe a stretch. But then again its the nfl draft and anything can and will happen !!!
Like the Chris Long pick though, his strength coach at Virginia, is under investigation, and has been for awhile, for growth hormone purchases and use.
Re: it is never too early to take a look at how the draft might shake out

Dolphins should trade down, they need too much help in too many places
Re: it is never too early to take a look at how the draft might shake out

Now !!! Ron Simmons was a great middle guard for the Noles in 79 and 80 !!! He was on the same A.P. All American defensive team as Mike Singletary of Baylor and future hall of famer with DA BEARS !!! Too small for the Nfl, but a great pro wrestler with Butch Reed and Bradshaw Lester !!!
