2008 NFL Mock Draft Rounds 1-4 Jan 4th

Welcome back and happy new year everyone. The offseason has begun for some teams and the draft picture may start to become clearer and clearer over the next few weeks, especially the combine. We also will get to stop guessing over which juniors will declare (Erin Henderson, Jamaal Charles) and who will stay another year.

ROUND 1
1. Miami Dolphins-Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
Bill Parcells is a defensive guy first and foremost. Keith Traylor was kicked off the team this year by Cam Cameron and he may come back, but that defensive tackle position definitely has some wear on the tires. Dorsey is the kind of playmaker Parcells loves.
2. St Louis Rams-Jake Long, OT, Michigan
Orlando Pace is likely to go the way of Ogden pretty soon and retire. It also doesn't help matters that Bulger and Gus were treated like human ping pong balls all year, they need something solid on that offensive line.
3. Atlanta Falcons-Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
Joey, Byron, and Redman. Those are the names of Falcons quarterbacks currently NOT in prison. They need some semblance of leadership and ability, something they are currently lacking. Oh, and someone who doesn't murder dogs for sport would also be advisable.
4. Kansas City Chiefs-Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas
You're probably blinking in disbelief, let me explain what I see happening. Larry Johnson and the Chiefs have never gotten along. Deal him now for a second round pick or something and take McFadden, who very well may end up being a better running back anyways.
5. Oakland Raiders-Chris Long, DE, Virginia
Nostalgia, that is what many folks will say with this pick. The fact that he is probably my second maybe even first ranked player is just gravy for the Raiders. This definitely makes the Black Hole wild with excitement to have the son of Howie.
6. New York Jets-DeSean Jackson, WR, Cal
I know, not exactly what you're thinking but let me explain. They need a wide receiver, done. They have Leon Washington who is one of the top five returners in the NFL. Now imagine if you put both DeSean and Leon back there on kickoffs, do you always kick it short or out of bounds? This almost guarantees great field position every kickoff.
7. New England Patriots (via 49ers)-James Laurinaitis, ILB, Ohio St
If you let the Road Warrior fall to the Patriots and allow him to learn from some of those veterans, we'll never see the end to this alleged Patriots dynasty. Of course he's a perfect fit for that team and their personality, that's why I hate it that he may wind up there.
8. Baltimore Ravens-Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
After his performance against LSU and the hype machine began his production and play has dropped. Some folks no longer have Woodson in their top five quarterbacks list. This is likely to continue so I now have the Ravens taking Brian Brohm.
9. Cincinnati Bengals-Ryan Clady, OT, Boise St
I know common sense tells us that the Bengals will be going defense, defense, defense. They have however lost Steinbach and word has it they are going to lose one of their tackles in the offseason as well. Carson Palmer is their horse and they need to protect him.
10. New Orleans Saints-Dan Connor, ILB, Penn St
At each level of the defense the Saints need help. A key to any strong defense is a secure inside linebacker who can make plays all over the field. Dan Connor is one of those type of players that the Saints can rely on.
11. Buffalo Bills-Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas
I've thought for awhile now that Talib was the best corner in that nation, and after last night's performance people are starting to agree with me. This could also be Jenkins from Ohio St, either way the Bills need a corner here whoever that may be to compete with the Patriots.
12. Denver Broncos-Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC
I've said it before so it shouldn't need repeating but just in case you weren't paying attention, the Broncos are in desperate need of a defensive line that can make plays. Sedrick Ellis may end up being the more productive defensive tackle in the NFL between Dorsey and himself.
13. Carolina Panthers-Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio St
There are no more first round quarterbacks available, and you could take an offensive tackle here, but getting double teams off of Julius Peppers (the face of their franchise) is a more pressing need. If folks disregard Gholston in favor of Peppers he will make them pay all day long.
14. Chicago Bears-Sam Baker, OT, USC
Like I said above, there are no more first round quarterbacks available and I doubt Louvie Smith will stretch and try to find one here. What he should do, and probably will, is work on protecting whoever his quarterback is, and Sam Baker is the best option at this point in the draft.
15. Detroit Lions-Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio St
They need a corner like I need a full head of hair and to lose a few pounds. Their secondary could call Detroit's SVU section they were abused so bad in the second half of the season. An offensive tackle isn't a stretch here either, I just believe this is their biggest need at this point in time.
16. Arizona Cardinals-Kentwan Balmer, DT, North Carolina
A running back or offensive lineman may be the sexy choice for some out there for the Cardinals, but I'm going with Balmer. He's an atheltic defensive lineman and can take some pressure off some of their other players and allowing them to be the playmakers they are capable of.
17. Minnesota Vikings-Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC
The Vikings has a young defense that has a good amount of potential, but they need that playmaker on the defensive line like they have in Purple Jesus on the offense. Lawrence Jackson has all the tools and ability to be that kind of player, to be that pass rushing threat they desperately need.
18. Houston Texans-Kenny Phillips, S, Miami
The Texans will be praying the entire draft for Kenny Phillips to fall to them. They have their defensive line and linebacker playmakers, now they need their secondary playmaker and he comes in the form of Kenny Phillips. I do suspect someone may trade up to snag him though.
19. Philadelphia Eagles-Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma
The biggest piece missing, at least to me, of the Eagles offense is that big playmaking wide receiver that they haven't had since TO was there. Even before TO this was a problem, as they have NEVER during Andy Reid's tenure had a huge playmaking wide receiver, this could solve that dilemma.
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida
This pick does two things for the Buccs, they get themselves a hell of a playmaker at the corner position, and you get a local kid that excites the fan base. I'm always in favor of getting local talent since the fans can get behind someone they've known for years over someone new, and they tend to get more invested in the team.
21. Washington Redskins-Quentin Groves, DE/OLB, Auburn
I don't believe they should draft a safety first, they have other needs and there is none of value here. Groves can play either defensive end or outside linebacker for the Redskins, though I think he'll end up at OLB because of his size, though if he bulks up he definitely can play defensive end.
22. Dallas Cowboys (via Browns)-Jeff Otah, OT, Pitt
You have found your quarterback of the future, he's young and he likes dating dumb blondes. Well, you can't get someone to protect him from dating the dumb blondes but you can get someone to protect his backside from Trent Cole and Andre Carter so that your millions aren't lost and you have to rely on Brad Johnson.
23. Seattle Seahawks-Fred Davis, TE, USC
Do you pay money for a first round running back, or do you get someone you need right now? I went with the right now philosophy and took the best tight end in this draft for the Seahawks. The West Coast offense MUST have a stellar tight end to succeed, notice anything missing in Seattle?
24. Pittsburgh Steelers-Marcus Griffin, S, Texas
Troy is quickly entering into a rare territory saved for Steve Young and Troy Aikman when it comes to his concussions. I don't know if we'll ever see him with an extra helmet on his helmet, but Tomlin is a secondary coach who knows that if he's out soon that defense could very well sick very quickly.
25. Tennessee Titans-Limas Sweed, WR, Texas
We've talked time and time again about how badly the Titans need some wide receivers as weapons for Vince Young to throw to. Well Sweed and him tore up the college ranks together, so this gives him something familiar as he continues to adjust to playing football in the NFL.
26. New York Giants-Keith Rivers, OLB, USC
The fact that Keith Rivers could very well slip all the way to 26 should be a crime in this country. He should blend in very well with that Giants defense who is really starting to come into its own and be recognized as one of the better defenses in the NFL. A good draft defensively and this may just become THE best defense in the league.
27. San Diego Chargers-Erin Henderson, OLB, Maryland
It's a bit scary to think of what the Chargers would do, scheme wise, having both Merriman and Henderson on their Linebacking corps. Would they become known as the Mutant Ninja Turtles or something? I just think this selection enables the Chargers to do so many things defensively.
28. Jacksonville Jaguars-James Hardy, WR, Indiana
Watch a highlight reel of James Hardy this year and you may begin to understand the feeling Jacksonville fans will have if the Jaguars land Hardy this late in the first round. This kid can seemingly catch anything in his direction and rarely drops a ball, things definitely needed by the Jaguars offense.
29. Green Bay Packers-Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois
Ryan Grant looks like a good solid player, but is it for real or just a one year fluke? I don't think the Packers can allow themselves the luxury of being wrong and take Mendenhall. His style of running is a bit opposite and more prone to some huge plays, but he's tougher then Reggie Bush so no worries about just being flashy.
30. Dallas Cowboys-Early Doucet, WR, LSU
The Cowboys need some reliable receivers opposite TO who always garners plenty of attention from the defense. Doucet may not be a TO or Moss, but he can be a Reggie Wayne or Wes Welker, someone reliable to throw to and has the ability to make some extra yards from time to time.
31. San Francisco 49ers (via Colts)-Mario Manningham, WR, Michigan
Here is your big time wide receiver Shawn Hill. Is there any question that Shawn Hill is now the Niners quarterback? Will there be a a situation much like there was this year in Cleveland between Hill and Alex Smith? Either way, they need someone to throw to and Mario gives you that big playmaking ability you've missed since TO.
32. New England Patriots-Forefit

ROUND 2
1. Miami Dolphins-Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy St
A strong corner that is beginning to gain a lot of recognition in circles.
2. St Louis Rams-Reggie Smith, CB, Oklahoma
Can probably play corner or safety, the Rams need both.
3. Atlanta Falcons-Chris Williams, OT, Vanderbilt
No reason to draft a quarterback if you can't protect him.
4. Kansas City Chiefs-Kennan Burton, WR, Kentucky
An underrated wide receiver in this draft, great compliment to Bowe.
5. Oakland Raiders-Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss
A very solid lineman, something the Raiders desperately need, should stay in school though.
6. New York Jets-Vince Hall, ILB, Virginia Tech
Helps fill that inside and gives the Jets a solid football player.
7. San Francisco 49ers-Alex Mack, C, Cal
They began securing the outside of the line, now time for the middle.
8. Baltimore Ravens-Tracy Porter, CB, Indiana
Rolle's epilepsy brought into question whether he will always be ready to go.
9. Cincinnati Bengals-Marcus Harrison, DT, Arkansas
To start building a solid defense you have to start building in the middle.
10. New Orleans Saints-Travis Beckum, TE, Wisconsin
Ask Drew Brees if he misses having a tight end like Antonio Gates.
11. Buffalo Bills-Ali Highsmith, OLB, LSU
A nice compliment to Poz, has the right demeanor for that Bills team.
12. Denver Broncos-Robert Felton, G, Arkansas
Their offense struggled this year since their o-line wasn't what it used to be.
13. Carolina Panthers-Joe Flacco, QB, Delaware
You may still have Delhomme but there needs to be something young learning behind him.
14. Chicago Bears-Andre Woodson, QB, Kentucky
They go against the grain here and take Woodson, his personality is perfect for the windy city.
15. Detroit Lions-Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia
It's hard to throw or run the ball when your o-line doesn't really block anyone.
16. Arizona Cardinals-Jonathon Stewart, RB, Oregon
They wait a round and still get one of the top three running backs.
17. Minnesota Vikings-Jamie Silva, S, Boston College
Kid is a hard nosed player, the kind the fans in Minneapolis absolutely love.
18. Atlanta Falcons (via Texans)-Trevor Laws, DT, Notre Dame
They let Grady Jackson go, there needs to be someone to take his place.
19. Philadelphia Eagles-Kevin Ellison, S, USC
The Eagles finally find a person for that whole next to Dawkins, fans finally rejoice.
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Geno Hayes, OLB, Florida ST
Derrick Brooks isn't getting much younger, Hayes could do wonders in Tampa.
21. Washington Redskins-Brian Robiskie, WR, Ohio St
They realize they need a wide receiver with some semblance of size.
22. Cleveland Browns-Jamaal Charles, RB, Texas
I know defense should be first, but we need a replacement for Lewis and he's too good to pass up at this point in the draft.
23. Seattle Seahawks-Ray Rice, RB, Rutgers
Another team who waited to take a running back and having it work out in their favor.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers-Adam Kraus, G, Michigan
They're gonna lose Faneca, so naturally someone is needed to replace him.
25. Tennessee Titans-Red Bryant, DT, Texas A&M
I'll be shocked if they're able to actually keep Haynesworth this year.
26. New York Giants-Charles Godfrey, CB, Iowa
Their secondary is coming along, Godfrey could make it feared.
27. Miami Dolphins (via Chargers)-Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
They'll need someone to protect their QB and make holes for Ronnie Brown.
28. Jacksonville Jaguars-Bruce Davis, OLB, UCLA
A really athletic outside backer to help that defense get even better.
29. Green Bay Packers-Craig Steltz, S, LSU
It's almost a scary thought thinking about Bigby and Steltz back there together.
30. Dallas Cowboys-Chris Johnson, RB, East Carolina
They'll let Julius Jones go via free agency, this offense though needs two backs.
31. Indianapolis Colts-Phil Loadholt, OT, Oklahoma
Their offensive line was battered pretty bad this year, imagine him opposite Ugoh.
32. New England Patriots-DeJuan Tribble, CB, Boston College
They always replenish their corners, and take Boston College kids when possible.

ROUND 3
1. Miami Dolphins-Dustin Keller, TE, Purdue
Parcells loves having a talented tight end, look at Bavaro and Whitten.
2. St Louis Rams-Chris Ellis, DE, Virginia Tech
Ellis can come in and hopefully up their pass rush.
3. Atlanta Falcons-Michael Hamlin, S, Clemson
The Falcons secondary talks a great game, and make interceptions, but also a lot of touchdowns.
4. Kansas City Chiefs-Steve Justice, C Wake Forest
Their offensive line needs a complete make over, I still think Justice is the number one center.
5. New England Patriots (via Raiders)-Calais Campbell, DE, Miami
The Patriots love players who can play multiple things, Campbell's athleticism allows him to do just that.
6. New York Jets-Dre Moore, DT, Maryland
A Terrapin to keep blockers off of a Hokie.
7. San Francisco 49ers-Josh Barrett, S, Arizona St
Their defense is coming along, but they need that dominate safety back there.
8. Buffalo Bills (via Ravens)-John Carlson, TE, Notre Dame
It gives Edwards/Losman a release valve when Reed and the others are covered.
9. Cincinnati Bengals-Jonathon Godd, ILB, Vanderbilt
They rebuilding of the defense continues, a strong inside backer behind the new defensive tackle.
10. New Orleans Saints-Dominique Rogers-Cromartie, CB, Tennessee State
A bit of a steal here, their free agents this year were the worst pick ups in the league.
11. Buffalo Bills-Chad Rinehart, G, Northern Iowa
Someone has to get in the trenches and open holes for Marshawn Lynch.
12. Minnesota Vikings (via Broncos)-Barry Richardson, OT, Clemson
Tavaris Jackson needs more protection and Peterson needs holes to run through.
13. Carolina Panthers-DJ Hall, WR, Alabama
The Panthers continue to attempt to find that winning receiver combination.
14. Chicago Bears-Jonathan Hefney, S, Tennessee
I can't remember a season where the Bears' safeties didn't get injured.
15. Detroit Lions-Martin Rucker, TE, Missouri
The Lions have plenty of wide receivers, but no real tight end.
16. Arizona Cardinals-Carl Nicks, OT, Nebraska
Perhaps Nicks can protect that quarterback like some others haven't.
17. Minnesota Vikings-Erik Young, G, Tennessee
Some have him rated the number one guard in the draft, him with Hutchinson ain't to shabby.
18. Houston Texans-Cody Wallace, C, Texas A&M
They need to secure their inside, too much pressure emanated from there this season.
19. Philadelphia Eagles-Mike Hart, RB, Michigan
Westbrook needs breathers, and has the routine of getting injured on occasion.
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Colt Brennan, QB, Hawaii
Garcia isn't the long term answer and Gradkowski is a backup, Gruden takes a chance.
21. Washington Redskins-Quintin Demps, S, UTEP
Taking one so late he isn't expected to be the next Sean Taylor.
22. Cleveland Browns-Darrell Robertson, DE, Georgia Tech
Finally a defensive end who can make a sack and tackle in the backfield.
23. Seattle Seahawks-Drew Radovich, G, USC
There's been a hole here since Steve Hutchinson left for Minnesota.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers-Lavelle Hawkins, WR, Cal
They're losing Washington likely in the offseason, here's your new number three.
25. Tennessee Titans-Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
Who knows is Pacman will still be as good when he comes back from suspension.
26. New York Giants-Frank Okam, DT, Texas
This may be the weakest link on the Giants defense.
27. Chicago Bears (via Chargers)-Matt Forte, RB, Tulane
Cedric Benson isn't working, and Peterson isn't a starter, late enough to take a chance.
28. Jacksonville Jaguars-Tom Zbikowski, S, Notre Dame
They're getting long in the tooth in the safety region, great competitor.
29. Green Bay Packers-Tony Hills, OT, Texas
One can never have enough solid tackles to protect Brett Farve.
30. Dallas Cowboys-Ben Moffitt, ILB, South Florida
I feel this defense has missed something since Dat Ngyuen retired.
31. Indianapolis Colts-J Leman, ILB, Illinois
A speedy inside backer who should wreck havoc for Tony Dungy.
32. New England Patriots-Shawn Crabble, OLB, Michigan
A spunky player who should fit in and be easily molded by the team's veterans.

ROUND 4
1. Miami Dolphins-Allen Patrick, RB, Oklahoma
You don't know how healthy Ronnie Brown is going to be, good solid backup.
2. St Louis Rams-Phillip Wheeler, ILB, Georgia Tech
A good speedy inside backer whose best games will be at home indoors.
3. Atlanta Falcons-Roy Schuening, G, Oregon State
The continuation of building an offense line that can help the offense.
4. Kansas City Chiefs-Jack Ikegwuonu, CB, Wisconsin
Both of their corners are over thirty years old, they need a pupil.
5. Oakland Raiders-Terrance Taylor, DT, Michigan
Sapp has announced his retirement, so there's an opening at defensive tackle.
6. New York Jets-Dantrelle Savage, RB, Oklahoma State
Thomas Jones doesn't seem able to handle the entire load of the running game.
7. San Francisco 49ers-Jacky Claude, G, Florida State
You now have at least one side of the offensive line solid, perhaps some production then?
8. Baltimore Ravens-Kirk Barton, OT, Ohio State
Ogden will likely retire, if not next year, continue to build that offensive line.
9. Cincinnati Bengals-Wesley Woodard, OLB, Kentucky
Perhaps the presence of a solid young man will turn some of their boys away from crime.
10. New Orleans Saints-Thomas DeCloud, S, Cal
A playmaker in the secondary for a secondary who should all be fired.
11. Buffalo Bills-Dorien Bryant, WR, Purdue
They are trying to find a playmaker of sorts at the receiver position.
12. Denver Broncos-Heath Benedict, OT, Newberry
An excellent choice as he has the raw talent that can be molded to their taste.
13. Carolina Panthers-James Davis, RB, Clemson
Deangelo Williams and DeShawn Foster don't seem to be working right now.
14. Chicago Bears-Hilee Taylor, OLB, North Carolina
They very well may lose Lance Briggs this offseason.
15. Detroit Lions-Derek Harvey, DE, Florida
Perhaps he can jump start a pass rush that only appeared against Denver.
16. Arizona Cardinals-Trae Williams, CB, South Florida
Rolle has become a playmaker, but there is still an open spot opposite.
17. Minnesota Vikings-Justin King, CB, Penn State
It wasn't just a young quarterback who kept them out of the playoffs.
18. Houston Texans-Shannon Tevaga, G, UCLA
Well, they wanted a wall to be built in Texas.
19. Philadelphia Eagles-Mike McGlynn, OT, Pitt
I believe the most underrated tackle in the draft because of teammate Otah.
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Owen Schmitt, FB, West Virginia
I love this kid, he would be their new Mike Alstott.
21. New York Jets (via Redskins)-Earl Bennett, WR, Vanderbilt
They took DeSean, but Bennett gives them the more reliable receiver Clemens needs.
22. Cleveland Browns-Andre Fluellen, DT, Florida State
They wait awhile to take a defensive tackle, and he turns out to be one who could be really special.
23. Seattle Seahawks-Simeon Castille, S, Alabama
They do seem to go through secondary players like plastic cups don't they.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers-John Greco, OT, Toledo
They very well may lose one of their starting offensive tackles as well.
25. Tennessee Titans-Josh Morgan, WR, Virginia Tech
Of course they need more wide receivers, the ones they have now aren't working.
26. New York Giants-Donnie Avery, WR, Houston
I don't think it's necessary, they have Steve Smith, but when have they done things that made sense.
27. San Diego Chargers-DeMario Pressley, DT, North Carolina State
They need something in the middle of the defense, though I'm not sold on Pressley.
28. Jacksonville Jaguars-Dennis Dixon, QB, Oregon
It's late enough in the draft to take a chance on someone, I can't imagine a better player to take a chance on.
29. Green Bay Packers-Jordan Grimes, G, Purdue
It may be the mantra of Packerland this offseason, we must protect Farve.
30. Dallas Cowboys-Dennis Keyes, S, UCLA
This isn't the year for the Cowboys to work on their safety issue.
31. Indianapolis Colts-Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU
A good, solid, reliable player ya know the kind the Colts like on defense.
32. New England Patriots-Adarius Bowman, WR, Oklahoma State
They'll lose one or two receivers in the offseason, Bowman is a reliable one to replace them.

WOW McFadden to the Chiefs. I like your explanation, I just dont see it. Trading Johnson now is a SC liability. I dont see it happening

Jets have Coles and Cotchery. I dont think they will burn their 6 on another.

Pains me to say this but your right, the Road Warrior in NE is perfect. I cant complain tho, the Niners dont need an ILB, we have the DROY in Patrick Willis, aka THE BEAST!!

Ravens need a QB, Brohm could be the guy. New coach, New QB could be the shot in the arm Baltimore needs

Im not shocked that you have Clady going to Cinci. Its true that they need a D, but they still scared people in 2006 when they had an Oline. I agree, upgrade that immediatly. Use the rest of day 1 for Defense

Talib in Buffalo will upgrade an already good Defense. Would give them one hell of a nickel back option.

Broncos need to shift their focus on the Oline. The current ones seem to all be retiring.

Bears do not have an immediate need for an OT. They need to restock that DLine if all first round QBs are taken.

Nice Simpson knock!! I think the Cowboys need to focus on the CB position. Seems that is their weakest area. They look good on the Oline.

Seahawks would benefit most with Davis. West Coast guy in a pass happy offense. Would do wonders for Seattle

Chargers with a 2 Maryland LB's? Would be sick!

Cowboys are unlikely to draft a WR, with Owens, Glenn, and a newly extended Crayton. Would seem like a waste

Niners QB situtation looks to be Alex Smith, Shawn Hill, and Chris Weinke. Either way, Mario will be the man in Niner-Town.

Woodson would eliminate all Bears QB controverys. He would be their 2!! Orton ended 2007 strong and should start next season. Grossman a distant 3rd.

Geno Hayes!! Finally a Nole. Would follow in Brooks footsteps as the trend of Great FSU linebackers continues

Replace Jamaal Lewis?? He is what, 28??? Seriously?? What is wrong with Cleveland fans where laying a foundation and a good start is never enough?? Wow!

I have a feeling your right, Julius Jones days in Dallas are over. Would be a good fit in Miami though. he was a Parcell pick

I couldnt agree with you more. Colt Brennan in TB is a great long term pick. But Garcia reminds me of Flutie, gets better with age and refuses to retire. This could backfire.

Needless to say, draftday will be quite interesting. If I were you Shane, I would enter every draft competition. You could win a pretty penny!!

Shane Rollins said...

Johnson has been a cancer, and it did work for Buffalo this season. I can easily see the Chiefs getting a second or third for LJ and taking McFadden who I think is the better back anyways.

Yes, they're good possession receivers, not exactly ones who make you wet your pants. They're also not getting any younger. The real crux of my choice though is the putting him back there with Leon Washington for kickoffs.

The Broncos do focus on their o-line later in the draft, they've never been ones to draft o-line first round.

The Bears need for an OT is greater then their d-line need. I can only see them taking a wide receiver (depending on their offseason) or Kenny Phillips here other then a tackle.

The Boys o-line is getting old, and not too good, or did you miss when Romo was scrambling for his life this year?

When was the last time you saw Glenn on the field? Crayton may very well leave in the offseason.

This isn't about replace Lewis, giving him a compliment behind him to learn. He does have wear and tear on his body, and I'd rather be safe then sorry. Plus we need to resign Lewis first.

SayHey Kid said...

I agree, Johnson is a clubhouse cancer but Chief Execs still gave him a huge contract and got little in return. It will be tough to dump his attitude and contract onto another team. Its doable though.

Crayton just signed a 4 year 14 mill extension. Glenn will most likely play next week. Not to say he wont retire at the end of the season though

Oh, I must have misread. Sure, Lewis needs a compliment not named Vickers. I would say resigning Lewis is THE primary focal point this offseason. He was absolutly amazing this season!

Shane Rollins said...

Vickers is actually the fullback, a good one he just can't catch for shit. We better resign Lewis, but you cannot pass up on Charles at that point when you know Lewis won't last past that two year contract we should give him. Lewis would be the pound and Charles could come in on for the outside attack, like we're doing already with Offensive Wright.

SayHey Kid said...

No knock on Vickers, but he is WAY to valuable as a blocker to rush balls. Lewis is just about it for now. Im not saying pass up on Charles, hell, take him if he is available. Im just saying Lewis at this stage of his career is worth keeping long term. He dominated the conferance and humiliated your arch rival, that to me is most important.
