I haven't seen the clip, yet. However, I'm assuming it's a bunch of dumba- commentators telling everyone that the Alphonso Smith pick is terrible. Am I right?

Some highlights for those who don't watch:

-Alphonso Smith is the most instinctive and polished corner in the draft
-Could have gone in the top 10
-Ballhawk
-An overall great selection
-Edit: Forgot the statement "all he does when he's on the field is make plays"

Thanks for posting Lex!

Josh sure traded up a lot ... and that's causing an under-discussed problem.

With 8 draft pick this year, plus all the Pats, plus we were a talented and very young team already ... this translates into a packed roster. We will cut numerous guys who can play, and numerous good prospects, like Carlton Powell maybe. Not good roster management, imo.

Crappy teams don't have packed rosters, they'll be cutting marginal players at best. Powell is a good prospect because . . . ?

I was so drunk that I don't remember.
I realized later they could've had him AND Quinn farther down.

Disagree we're a crappy team. Don't wanna rehash Powell, but this is an over-stuffed roster imo, stuffed with young guys who might emerge if given time and coaching. There are numerous guys who will be claimed off waivers or the practice squad, including Josh Bell, Matt McChesney, Josh Barrett, Mitch Ericksen, Jeb Putzier, Lee Robinson, Tim Crowder, Nate Swift, maybe even TE Marquez Branson, Lee Robinson and Pedescleux. Our practice squad will be raided. The point is the YOUTH of this glut of players.

Wait and see

That's always my favorite part. Could say this about pretty much any guy taken in the first three rounds, if you change/improve one part of them significantly as they mention with him.

How many guys who can't play now but may be able to play "some day" can you keep on your roster? Every team has the same "problem". Most of these guys are borderline NFL talent at best.

I never said they "can't play now."

Tim Crowder, Josh Bell, Josh Barrett, Nate Swift. I guarantee all four will be claimed.

Hey, 'member when lex spammed the boards? 'Member when the mods did nothing? 'Member when he continued to post mindless drivel like this in order to make the boards a lot less interesting and fun for the posters?

'Member how successful that was?

Great job, mods. Seriously.

Perhaps but they are far from a lock to ever make an impact on any NFL team. I'm also a little confused how you can knock the roster management in a new regime's first year with a completely new scheme on both sides of the ball. Did you not expect them to bring in guys they know who are familiar with their system? As far as your criticism for an "overstuffed" roster I just don't get it. It increases the competition and level of play at all levels including 2nd and 3rd stringers. Is that a bad thing?

Our 1st round pick for A.Smith if we lose 14 games this year,This will go down as one of the biggest bone head plays in NFL history.

And by the way theres a high chance we might lose 14 games too.

Doesn't smith look like he is going to be a starter at nickel. Isn't that good for a rookie?

I don't see the issue here. Successful draft pick ... no?
