Default The "what we could have gotten" draft

After watching the draft play out, this is what we could have had as our draft, assuming all the trade that where made still stand. This could have really helped the defense a ton.

# Player Pos School Scouts Inc Rating

12 Brian Orakpo DE Texas 95
18 Peria Jerry DT Mississippi 91
37 Rey Maualuga ILB USC 91
48 Micheal Johnson DE G Tech 83
64 Rashaad Johnson S Alabama 86
114 DJ Moore CB Vandy 87
132 Jason Phillips ILB TCU 66

This is through the 4th round.

coulda would shoulda,,, what happens if we didn't pick knowshon and he's the next Adrian Peterson? What happens if we did pick Orakpo and he's another Jarvis Moss?

It's not worth our time to sit here and split hairs about what could've happened, because we won't knw until the season starts, or even next season for that matter.

On the other hand what else do we have to talk about So, let the hair splitting continue, lets enjoy the summer and pray Knowshon makes us look brilliant

Shortly after that conversation I fully expect you to be starting the next "So I'm getting a divorce..." thread

I hope Orakpo is a bust in NFL, after the Redskins wasted NO time drafting him right after we passed him up...

You are being silly. If Denver choses a different player at 12 the whole draft would change. You don't know those players would be available with those pics.

I would rather spend an hour cupping Bobos twig and giggleberries than have that draft class.

That is just awful, AWFUL!

Nobody wants to play this game now, but I guarantee you, if things go in the ****ter, everybody will want to play.

I can play that game and just thru the first two rounds. I've posted this before:

Ayers
Barwin
Orakpo
Brace
English
Kruger

I think we could have got 3 or maybe 4 of them in the first two rounds with the maneuvering we did. Could maybe have acquired 5 with a little more sacrifice.

But it is just a game. The picks we got will be good players. The telling of who did the best is two years away at least, maybe more. The coaching staff is on the spot now.

My Draft 12. Orakpo, by far the best player on the board at the time.
18. Moreno, I'm O.k with drafting Moreno but would never pass on Orakpo. I don't buy it that teams where trying to trade up for Moreno.
37. I would not sell out next years draft when we don't kwow where we will pick.Maybe if we where a playoff team.
48 . Fila Moala , This guy fits the profile of every think you want in a 3-4 defensive end.
64. Jarron Gilbert, another Guy that projects well as 3-4 DE. I'm o.k.
with trade up to get him.
114. D.J . Moore is a steal right at this point.
132. Dave Burton, I'm glad we drafted this Guy.
