This is for all NFL fans out there who are eagerly anticipating the draft this Saturday. I want your input and information on what you have read or heard about the draft.
- First off, which is your favorite NFL team?
- Second, what do you think their greatest needs are in terms of talent and/or position?
- Third, in a pipedream situation, who would you like to see your team pick this Saturday if they could choose anyone available this Saturday?
Here are my answers to this blog to get things started:
- The Philadelphia Eagles have been my favorite since I was knee high to a grasshopper.
- The Eagles have the greatest need at LB, but need to look at the future and provide depth at all DB positions, and I think they need to have a bruiser behind Westbrook and Buckhalter as insurance against injury to both RB's.
- Oddly enough, I would not necessarily want the 3 most coveted players in the draft. Let everyone else have Calvin Johnson, Jamarcus Russel/Brady Quinn, and Adrian Peterson. I'd prefer some flexible and talented DB's like Aaron Ross, Shawn Merriweather, or LB's such as Paul Posluszny, Lawrence Timmons or Patrick Willis. The only others I would really like, and this is pipe dream mind you, would be D-lineman like Amobi Okoye, Gaines Adams or Jarvis Moss to push for playing time with the Eagle's established group.
