    Re: Nfl Draft top 100 Prospects

    Start watching the top 10. The Bengals will likely be taking somebody up there.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Admittedly biased, but I was surprised that Tracy Porter was as low as he was.
    Kiper had him 19th of all seniors.

    The worst thing about next years draft is the Patriots get the 49ers pick because of a trade. If the standings ended up like they are now the Patriots would have the 2nd pick in the draft. They got their own first round draft pick taken away but keep that pick.

    I knew things were turning around when I started groaning at Senior Days. Players that have actually made contributions leaving but still being replaced by capable back ups.
    IU's really going to struggle in the secondary though. The top 3 cornerbacks are all seniors I believe.

    No that is what the NFL should have done but they took the Patriots own pick and left them the pick they got from the 49ers.

    Why is that what they should have done?

    Tell me that you'd be on this "they should have taken the 49ers pick" kick if the 49ers had a better record than the Pats right now?

    The penalty was the loss of THEIR draft pick, not the highest one they happen to obtain before the draft.

    I really don't think the commish has the right to take away a pick that was acquired by trading the previous years pick. Why should the Pats or any other team for that matter be penalized for something they wouldn't have been penalized for if they just made the pick instead of trading it? Would you guys be advocating that they should take away the guy the Pats just drafted?

    Had the Pats used that pick they'd have a first rounder on their team right now. They made the astute trade with the Niners and deserve the windfall. And in Goodell's mind they deserve to have their pick taken away.

    You guys are just upset that a team you hate has hit the jackpot with that trade with the Niners. If your team was in this situation you'd have a fit of rage if Goodell was going to take away the Niners pick and you know it.

    I agree with Maine. The league took away the Pats pick, not the one that they obtained via trade. Belichick picked a good year to get caught cheating.

    I'm going to hate to lose Lauranitis, Jenkins, and Gholston. I'm just hoping Boone sticks around for his senior season. He'll be tougher to replace than the other guys.

    It's always stupid to get caught cheating, but he did pick a damn good year to bet on the 49ers being crappy.

Graphic sexual descriptions. 3. Racial or ethnic slurs. 4. Use of edgy language (including masked profanity). 5. Direct personal attacks, flames, fights, trolling, baiting, name-calling, general nuisance, excessive player criticism or anything along those lines. 6. Posting spam. 7. Each person may have only one user account. It is fine to be critical here - that's what this board is for. But let's not beat a subject or a player to death, please.

Thank you, and most importantly, enjoy yourselves!
