Stuck at work with ESPN radio & McShay, who is now certain that Quinn will not go before #9 with the Dolphins. I guess he is probably right, but I would love to see the Browns take BQ just to prove that smug AH wrong.

Win4Gipper
04-28-2007, 12:26 PM
Sigh of relief here......you never know what Al Davis is going to do......I am glad Quinn will not be in Oakland.........they can have the superman who can throw the ball 75 yards while sitting on a toilet.... I think our poor D just made a man a #1 pick

The Buc's select Gaines Adams

irishunclebill
04-28-2007, 12:59 PM
Somebody correct me, but if you listen to these guys on ESPN Radio, you would swear that BQ is the most inaccurate college passer of all time. No way AZ takes Brady, Washington very doubtful unless Snyder demands BQ, so it looks like best shot is #7, but McShay is probably right, and it will be the Dolphins at #9. Oh well, the cash Brady lost by dropping to #9 he will more than make up in endorsements.

irishunclebill
04-28-2007, 01:01 PM

Adams coulda been a shaky pick similar to the Texans taking Mario Williams last draft. Levi Brown is lucky the Cardinals have a need at OL b/c he's no top 5 pick. Looks like the 'Skins will take LaRon Landry at #6. To the delight of ND haters & ESPN, Quinn's dropping in the draft will be the highlight of their day. I think Quinn will have the last laugh. I also think that JaMarcus Russell should donate a portion of his signing bonus to every starter on last year's ND defense b/c they are the ones who elevated him to early entry into the draft & the subsequent #1 pick

irishunclebill

I don't think Brady loves it. The commissioner just moved his family & him to a private suite so they could excape the cameras. I think he was fine until the Dolphins passed him over at #9 when he was shown mouthing the words, "I'm suprised". Of course, EVERYBODY was suprised.

I hope you're correct w/ you last statement (w/ the exception of the Jets). I'd love to see him become a Bear & would settle for him as a Cowboy. Both are great teams w/ unproven long term QBs. The ESPN crew is now theorizing that some of the better teams w/ lower picks should try to trade up b/c no one expected Quinn to be still available.

Salisbury is a worse analyst than he was QB & that's saying a ton. May just loves to hate on ND, so not suprised for the bashing, although he mentioned he covered a lot of college ball last year which makes me wonder if he's officially switched to covering the NFL instead of college.

Just looking at what teams are left in the first round the teams that maybe would have some intrest to me are the Chiefs, if they do in fact trade Green, and Baltimore. I don't think that Chicago will draft him, but I have been totally wrong so far.

Alright, who/when is getting picked (from ND) next? Abiamiari mid Rd2?

Not at this rate. With the way it's gone so far, I'd say no Domer gets drafted in the 2nd round. Harris & Abiamiri could go in the 3rd if they're lucky. I predict Walker goes no earlier than the 4th, McKnight in the 5th and that the rest of the eligible Domers are free agents: Landri, Ndukwe & Richardson.

I did read on BGI that Richardson had a helluva workout for the scouts but we all hear the positive feedback from scouts about all the players & it ends up being false hope. I bet Zibby, Carlson & Laws are thankful they didn't come out this year. It coulda been ugly for them too.

Well the silver lining in this crappy draft was the ZERO USC Trojans got picked in the first round. How long has it been since that happened (Probably Hacket's last year in LA!).

Another note, based on the talent that LSU was LOADED w/ last year, I think you could make a case that they underachieved (may be a little too harsh considering their conference) in not winning the Nat'l Championship. Talk about being loaded on both sides of the ball!

Judging by who is left, I would think mid 4th to mid 5th round. With his stats, he'd have been an early round lock if he'd have run a 4.4 40yd. But drop that to 4.55, and its a big deal to the "experts".

Derek Landri was selected as the 29th pick in the 5th round by Jacksonville. Time is running out on Darius & Rhema. Darius is listed as the 2nd best RB available, and Rhema is listed as the 3rd best WR available. Dan Santucci might get drafted before them, if they get drafted at all, as Dan is listed as the next best OG available.

Looks like Boise State's QB, Zabransky, may go undrafted as well. Also, Carson Palmer's brother, Jordan from UTEP, who Carson had the unmitigated gall of voting him ahead of BQ for the Heisman, also looks like he will be undrafted as well.

Mike Richardson just got drafted by the Patriots.

Richardson's pre-draft workouts really raised his stock. He went to work out up north (Jersey, I think) to hone his running & cutting. He said every scout wondered why he wasn't invited to the draft combine. He made a lot of progress last year from '05 so I hope he has a nice career in the NFL.

IRISHDODGER
04-29-2007, 04:09 PM
WHAT!!!

What the hell is with Darius? No one wants him?

I think he went into this draft w/ his eyes wide open. He was confident that if he wasn't drafted that he'd be invited to camp as a FA. Based on ND's current stable of RBs & what looks to be a better draft class next year, DWalk probably still made the right decision.

Did anyone catch the ESPN draft crew interviewing Browns WR, Braylon Edwards? He summed up Brady Quinn better than anyone I've heard (other than Weis, of course). He raved about Quinn's leadership as witnessed in the MSU game last year as well as the UCLA game. Then one of crew, Mortenson I think, brought up the criticism Quinn gets for not winning the "Big Games". Edwards didn't hesitate when he pointed out that, if that were the only criteria, we wouldn't talk about Dan Marino as one of the greatest NFL QBs ever. After that statement, Mort muttered, "Good answer".

Then one of crew, Mortenson I think, brought up the criticism Quinn gets for not winning the "Big Games". Edwards didn't hesitate when he pointed out that, if that were the only criteria, we wouldn't talk about Dan Marino as one of the greatest NFL QBs ever. After that statement, Mort muttered, "Good answer".


I heard that too. Good analysis by Braylon. I guess all Michigan guys aren't bad!

Would Darius have gone out if he'd known he wouldn't get drafted anyway? He could've been a FA after next season anyway....

How many ND guys got drafted, and how many more guys are left still?

6 guys have been drafted, 2 out of the remaining 4 will not be drafted, so the only two that are left are McKnight, and Walker

So many recievers have been taken over Rhema. Does he suck THAT bad?

It'd be weird for someone on the Notre Dame offense to be Mr. Irrelevent.

Ndukwe just got drafted by the Bengals with the 3rd to last pick. Way to go, guy.

I'm amazed no one picked McKnight. He was a little inconsistent, but he did have 15tds. The OL was pretty poor and Harris and Santucci both went. Weird.

I can't imagine D Walk and Rhema not getting drafted. I know both are lacking in some areas, but compared to the guys taken??? sure, Rhema dropped some passes, but he was still a very good receiver, had 15 TD catches last year and is Notre Dame's 2nd all-time receiver in terms of catches. And Darius is a steady back who surely could help a team out. I'm sure they'll get signed by someone, but it's got to be really disappointing for them.

Wow...I was really surprised that Darius wasn't picked up. I had a feeling that Rhema would have to tryout for a team, but I would have figured that Walker could fit into a team who needed a little depth at RB.

In the seventh round I was hoping Cleveland would pick up Rhema to give Brady a familiar traget to throw to in the offseason.

It sounded like the guys on the NFL network were upset that Walker did not stay for one more year at ND, and they thought that the one more year would have helped him in his draft status.

He might have thought he'd get less carries, and therefore worse draft status. It looks now like he should've stayed though.

Now that the draft is over does anyone think that ND laid an egg in 06 or did CW coach the hell out of his players. I just want to know what everyone thinks.

i honestly don't think he would have improved his status too much. he wasn't going to do anything differently and suddenly become super fast or anything. i mean, it's hard to do a whole lot better than the numbers he put up this year with the type of runner/receiver he is and in the system he was in and with all the other rbs competing for time. but hopefully he gets on a team that is a good fit for him.

Reminds me of Autry Denson or Lee Becton. Good college guys, considered "too slow" by NFL scouts.

Man, that's too bad for Walker and McKnight. But I'm really happy for Ndukwe and -- especially -- Richardson! Mike R. took his knocks over the years, but he was pretty solid for us last year and he's been a hard worker.

its wierd.... Was brady quinn the only person drafted from our offence? Considering we had a sucky Defence(which the sucky part is no longer in existence) i guess they had the talent but not the coaching....thanks minter

Samardjiza and Carlson would have been high picks from the offense.

Are you a British citizen? I have never seen 'C''s used in offense or defense before. Limey bastard!

ND has talent and will always have it . It is up to the coach to find out what a player can do best and use them in that way. The one thing that CB has said is that after spring practice he will see what the team is not what he wants it to be and then scheme to his defense talent.

according to und.com D Walk signed with the Bears as did Frome, Rhema with the Saints, and Freeman with the Ravens.

They went to good teams. I'm honestly surprised that the Bengals didn't make a move on Rhema, although they really need a speed guy.

Thanks for sharing. They probably won't play much this year, will they?

Probably not, but at least they get a chance that most of us never do.
