    [b] All I know is ... this player better be friggin John Riggins!!

    Cause I am NOT an advocate of drafting a FBI this high ... ESPECIALLY when you have other needs and NO 4TH ROUND PICK!! [/b][/quote]
    I couldn't agree more ?
    we can't afford a luxury pick in the 3rd without a fourth....NEEDING a big WR,CB,AOL,LB etc etc.
    sheesh...

    this was stupid.

    [SIZE=3][color=green]Interesting pick...Obviously in spite of re-signing Sowell, Herm & Bradway are not sold on his abilities, especially pass catching.Nor do they believe in their ability to convert L.Jordan into an "NFL-type" fullback. (This I disagree with).We'll see.[/color][/SIZE]

    [b] A terrible pick


    bradway grade just dropped to a C [/b][/quote]
    It must be a great pick if Negative Nancy here doen&#39;t like it... [/b][/quote]
    I have nothing against the player ... I KNOW he&#39;s a good football player.

    But I disagree with drafting a FB in this spot (ANY FB&#33;&#33;), when we have FAR MORE PRESSING NEEDS ... and no 4th RD Pick

    Sorry, this pick needed to be a WR ... OG ... CB ... SS ... or even another LB

    BUT NOT A FULLBACK&#33;&#33;

    This is the a very questionable pick...

    The loss of the 4th rounder seems to have forced Bradway&#39;s hand. I&#39;m not worried about OL help because TB seems to do a good job getting line help late in the draft.

    HOWEVER, the FO is truly thinks that the Conway/Coles switch is adequate. I beg to differ. Justin Gage was a big receiver that could run the crossing patterns that&#39;s crucial in our system......"Every West Coast Offense Needs A Big Receiver".

    This type of pick is a result of the bad job that TB did in retaining our players this offseason. We&#39;re now asking Conway & Askew to make up for the production we lost in Anderson & Coles. And we&#39;ve yet to solve the special team situation.

    No matter how anyone wants to spin things, this guy has done a horrible job this offseason. Hopefully D. Robertson saves our a&#036;&#036;

    [b] This is a good pick. He&#39;s a good backup for Sowell. Not quite FB, not quite HB. This was a need pick. [/b][/quote]

    Not in this draft. In case you haven&#39;t seen, we already have 3.

    ......"Every West Coast Offense Needs A Big Receiver".

    and your idea of a big receiver was coles??? rather than conway???

    .....We&#39;re now asking Conway & Askew to make up for the production we lost in Anderson & Coles.

    I thought Sowell took richie&#39;s spot???

    and what is the "off-season" is that over yet??? oh, ok...let the "offseason" end first, then grade him

    yeah i&#39;m just blowing off steam. I think we reached on the FB. I like Conway I just wanted a tall fast guy to go over the middle to back up Conway in case he gets hurt. Hopefully tommorow TB gets one plus grabs a CB like Weathersby or Ivan Taylor. If he can do that then i&#39;ll be happy. I hope this FB is as good as that pick warrants. At first I was upset with the Hobson pick but the more I think about it if he can come in and replace M Jones next year and do well, he&#39;ll be a good draft pick. Also I heard he&#39;s good against the run and shedding blocks.

    We actually needed another big receiver while we had Coles, that&#39;s why a lot of people questioned giving Chrebet the big money. Also, there&#39;s a reason why Matthew Hatchette & Kevin Swayne were on our roster the last 2 years. They just were&#39;nt talented enough to fill that role as our "Big Receiver".

    If you think i&#39;m wrong on that subject, take a look at the receivers on the succesful teams that had the west coast. My examples would be the 49er&#39;s of the 80&#39;s (John Taylor-Jerry Rice) and Green Bay from the mid 90&#39;s (Robert Brooks-Antonio Freeman-Bill Schredor).............You can also look at the Oakland offense that&#39;s kicked our butts the past two playoffs (Rice-Brown-Porter).

    [quote][b]I thought Sowell took richie&#39;s spot???[/b][/quote]

    Now, If you think Sowell is the answer, why the heck did we invest a 3rd rounder on Askew????

    I say Bradway has had a bad offseason because HE HAS. You guys can try to spin things anywhichway, but we are not better today than we were in January

    You&#39;re absolutely correct an untested rookie 3rd round pick from a bad college team is 6,847 times better than Curtis Conway an NFL veteran who was a #1 wide receiver on the Chargers.

    Dude, dice my comments up all you want if it makes you feel better. I never said any receiver we could&#39;ve drafted at #85 would&#39;ve been better than Conway.

    However, if someone else tries to tell me that Conway is better than Coles (ON 4/26/03 and beyond) i&#39;ll give them a referral for a great shrink.

    [b] Askew started off as a TB at Michigan and then switched to FB this year. From what I saw he has outstanding receiving skills and was an integral part of Michigan&#39;s offense. He will take over Richie&#39;s role and might push Sowell for the starting FB job. I like the pick&#33; [/b][/quote]
    I watched the draft with folks who follow Michigan football who seconded this. Moved from TB to FB. He&#39;s not a great blocker but has soft hands. Bradway has been saying all along guys would be chosen expecting to come in and help on ST - You have to think that Mike Westhoff had some input then.

    Ditto: BJ is versatile and could push Jerald.

    BTW, We drafted a ROB, a HOB, and if you don&#39;t like the Askew pick a B JOB.
