    Can you blame CJ if he does hold out? I don't think I can....oh wait he's gonna make millions, that would be stupid to hold out!
    The trend seems to be for the high first rounders is to see what the player who got drafted in that position last year got paid.
    Then you add 2 or 3 percent and you have a deal.
    Normally, there should not be a problem when skill position players are involved.
    But, when an offensive tackle is taken with the 3rd pick.
    When Cleveland took Joe Thomas.
    Now his agent is thinking he should be paid more than last years number 3 pick.
    That was Vince Young.

    Yeah, Joe Thomas is not gonna do for his team what Vince Young did for his. THere should be categories in the pay scale for first rounders: Skill players and non-skill players.

    Who says playing O-line takes no skill?
    If the Browns didn't think Joe Thomas would make an impact they shouldn't have drafted him at #3

    I'm not saying it doesn't take skill, but it's hard to name the top 10 O lineman in the league as opposed to the top 10 WRs.

    I wouldn't say it's that hard, here are some off the top of my head:

    Walter Jones, Alan Faneca, Brian Waters, Steve Hutchinson, Orlando Pace, Olin Kreutz, Birk, McKinnie (lol, probably not), Johnathan Ogden, Shawn Andrews, ERic Steinbach is pretty good, Ray Anderson, Max Starks, Jeff Saturday, Flozell Adams, Larry Allen (though not that great anymore, still good), Andre Gurode, Nick Mangold played pretty well for the Jets last year,
    Tom Nalen (is getting older), Chris Snee is getting better, Levi Jones, Logan Mankins, etc.
