teo will only go top 5 if the top 5 teams are in need of a mlb as of right now the chiefs jags panthers browns and us are top 5 the only team i seeing grabbing teo in the top 5 is us behind us is eagles and rams which dont need teo either and just fyi the skins traded a crap load to move 4 spots down i no it was for rg3 but anything can happen so trading back getting a 2nd and teo is still possible especially if we keep losing
1- trade back get a second and manti te'o
2-jessie willams nt bama
3-jake long ot oregon
also the deepest position in this draft is the def. line
^ Whom and for who is someone going to trade up for. There is no one in this draft worth trading up for and losing future picks for, so I highly doubt a trade happens on draft night.
Its a little early for anyone to be thinking they know where people will be drafted. A lot will change between now and April.
Top 5 LB's statistically fail
Teo is a great player, but I do not see him as a game changing LB in the NFL. He's far from a top 5 player.
We don't need an MLB, we need a DL or OL first. We need all you can eat champs protecting our QB, or rape convicts destroying opposing QB's. A guy like Teo will fail in Oak.
Good for us, this draft looks to be a good one for edge rushers and offensive tackles.
I said Laurenaitis, Spikes or Angerer were going to be very good. I guess they werent fast enough. I think it was much better to draft DHB.
When you get a chance to draft a game changing LB or franchise OT, you do it in the first 2 rounds. Every good team in the NFL has a game changing LB. We have 0. The really good teams have 2. I guess I am still pissed that we drafted DMC instead of Clady.
In fact, one of his issues is that he's not fast enough to cover sideline to sideline.
And, FWIW, I wanted Brandon Spikes too. We were hearing that Bruce Campbell was going to be the first round pick, however...
In an unrelated note :
What the hell is Oakland going to do defensively next year?
If they stick to a 4-3, they'll need to slide Houston to DT, promote Desmond Bryant, fill the hole at DE left by Houston, add depth all over while also finding better players at S, CB, MLB... and somewhere, somehow, the team will need some sort of pass rush.
If they move to a 3-4, they'll need a NT, they'll need TWO new MLB's, they'll still need a pass rusher at OLB, they'll still need better corners...
Good lord, this defense is a mess.
Yes it is...
Staying in 4-3, Houston moves inside, a run stuffer is needed, Bryant is depth, and we still need twe new DE's that can get to the QB. Sorry Big Guy, but Shaughnessy is not the answer. Good player, but we need improvement and to get to the QB. Then we need an MLB... Unless Burris or Wheeler move inside and we get a pass rushing OLB.
Moving to 3-4, Houston, Bryant and Shuagnessy could all play DE in 3-4 so only a NT is needed and one more for depth. An OLB that can get at it and a MLB is needed, along with one more for depth. I prefer this route and moving in this direction for good.
In the 3-4, the DE's need to eat blockers to free up the LB's to make plays. We would have better depth on the DL here and only need a NT. I trust RM to find good LB's, so far he's 2 for 2.
Our secondary is screwed regardless. We need a lot of help on defense really. I'd just really like to see an attacking 3-4 in Oakland for once. It's going to take two years regardless of what we do.
stork and Wolfe......what else are we gonna do for the next 8 weeks?
watch the raiders?...you guys have fun with that...I dont need any headaches.
If we win, then we lose in the draft
If we lose,I just get irritataed by poor play...
This is all Ive got ,man!!!!!!(lol)
dont worry raiders have one win on their schedule. chiefs. I just hope after we lose to the browns and broncos and are 3-10 we put pryor in so we can lose against the chiefs.
