    How do YOU stack up as an NFL GM on draft day?

    Since everyone here is a self declared draft genius, Lets have a little fun with it.

    What would you have done on draft day? Make your picks here, and we'll come back to this a few years down the road and see how people stack up.


    1. Ryan Mallett: QB Arkansas
    I would have probably gone with mallett here. I think if we need a guy, we don't take a chance on him being scooped up before our next pick.
    (Alternate: Prince Anakamura, hope that one of Mallett, Dalton or Ponder are there for the second pick, I wouldn't be certain they are)

    2. Rahim Moore: FS UCLA
    We NEED to improve our safeties. Have him take Williams spot, play him and Hussein together, could be a decent lineup.

    4. Chimdi Chekwa: CB OSU
    A speedy corner is exactly what we need. Not a huge physical type, but can stay with his guy.
    (alternate pick: Casey matthews, LB Oregon)

    4. Trade into the end of the fourth if we can find a suitor, combine our fifth,sixth, and even seventh if needed.
    Tandon Doss: WR Indiana
    A highly ranked WR, big physical guy who could be in the Sid Rice mold. Fast, and can make all the catches.

    5 (we traded htis for 6ths)
    Ahmad Black: SS Florida
    BPA here, just happens to fill a need. A good player, analyists say he'd be a great cover-2 safety. Not overly large, but can fly to the ball and make plays when asked to


    6 (supplementary)
    Bruce Miller, DE/OLB Central Florida
    A guy who's only 254 lbs, but they say he's a guy who can make a conversion to OLB. Low risk, high potential reward type player.

    7 (Supplementary)
    Lee Ziemba, OL Auburn
    A big guy guy, 6'8", 320. Could possibly learn positions across the line. Backup at OT, as well as interior line. Big, strong guy with good blocking skills, but lacks the quickness and footwork.

    Re: How do YOU stack up as an NFL GM on draft day?

    Interesting idea for a thread.

    I don't know who I would go with in the first round anymore. I wanted Nick Fairley when the Vikings were on the clock and were disappointed when we drafted Ponder. However, Ponder has grown on me after the last couple of days and I'm actually very excited and satisfied with the pick.

    I might come back later and do my own re-draft.

    Not sure about the GM part but I am one hell of a critic and armchair QB

    Re: How do YOU stack up as an NFL GM on draft day?

    I am fantastic.

    2005- hated everything about that draft.
    2006- wanted to trade up for Leinart. screamed at tv. liked Greenway, but wanted Mangold
    2007- didn't hate the pick, (Peterson) but really wanted Brady Quinn.
    2009- didn't like the Harvin pick. wanted Oher.
    2010- hated passing on Claussen, dropping out of first and passing on Claussen again for a reach CB. (Cook looks to be pretty good.)

    as you can see. I am an astute evaluator of QB talent.:P
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Great Idea. Just need a few additional tidbits of info on how to play....

    1. Who's big board do we follow.
    2. Do we also look at take into consideration what the other teams (ahead and below us) did with respect of visits and who they already might have picked?

    Whatever you like. Rate guys however you want, this is just talking about WHO you would have picked or what you would have done
    2. Yes, you can't say you'd take Gabbert at #12 if he was gone at #10, and you can't say you'd trade down to get a guy who was picked a few spots earlier than you trade to. Other than that, with our picks, or with a trade you fabricate, what would you have done.
