I notice there isn't many of us on here so thought I'd try to get a thread going before the start of the draft early Friday morning.

So we have pick numbers..

Round 1. 27
Round 2. 57
Round 3. 89
Round 3. 95
Round 4. 124
Round 5. 160
Round 6. 195
Round 6. 201
Round 7. 233

What do you want us to do in the draft. I think we need to get an extra body in at NT to help in the rotation with Earl Mitchell.
WR is a massive need too. Andre Johnson has said in interviews that he would like us to draft a playmaker at the receiver position too.
I think we could do with getting in some OL help, even if it is just for depth to start with. Maybe draft later on for this. We could do with someone at both ILB and OLB too.

Schedule

1 September 9 @ San Diego Chargers
2 September 15 Tennessee Titans
3 September 22 @ Baltimore Ravens
4 September 29 Seattle Seahawks
5 October 6 @ San Francisco 49ers
6 October 13 St. Louis Rams
7 October 20 @ Kansas City Chiefs
8 Bye
9 November 3 Indianapolis Colts
10 November 10 @ Arizona Cardinals
11 November 17 Oakland Raiders
12 November 24 Jacksonville Jaguars
13 December 1 New England Patriots
14 December 5 @ Jacksonville Jaguars
15 December 15 @ Indianapolis Colts
16 December 22 Denver Broncos
17 December 29 @ Tennessee Titans

Rounds one and two I would like us to go receiver then middle linebacker if there's value at no.57. At receiver I want one of Hopkins, Allen or Robert Woods.
This class seems to be quite deep at safety and OL which is where I would like us to go with any one of the two third rounders, the fourth and fifth

It's done. There are a few more of us on here but the activity is very sporadic, I'm guilty of it too. Hopefully a few more play-off appearances, or a London trip will raise support

Really? With the Seahawks, trips to San Fran and Baltimore, games against Denver and New England and two games against a revitalised Colts. I think that is a tough 7 games right there.

2 September 15 Tennessee Titans - W
3 September 22 @ Baltimore Ravens - W
4 September 29 Seattle Seahawks - L
5 October 6 @ San Francisco 49ers - L

I agree we are a much better team than we are given credit for. We lost the leader of our D last year at the Jets and have added Ed Reed. A number 2 receiver and we become a very dangerous play-off team

Only difference I would make to your projection is that we lose to one of Denver or New England in those 50/50 games, both are very up tempo and if we get behind we can struggle playing catch up

Agreed I have a soft spot for your team so tend to look out for them. (apart from the most boring team name in the NFL!)

Good points and I agree but even then that is 12-4 and a good chance of the 2 seed behind Denver

Right back at you, have 2 friends who are big packers fans! And hey, I would rather be the Texans than the Bobcats or the Apollos that were on the shortlist ha!

I see what you mean I am always wary of one or two surprise results in a season though, that's what makes the NFL great; the level playing field

Cool, well you are closer to making the Bowl than us. We are falling behind the 49ers and Hawks and doing little to plug the holes and close the gap

True it was a poor shortlist.

It just seems like someone went into a meeting and said 'lets call this team something like the Texans but not so boring' and the people who were supposed to research a good name took an immediate poll decided those 3 names should go on a ballot and went to an early lunch.

Indeed in this funny league you could beat the 49ers and lose to the Jags..........its why we love it.

Do you think you are that far off the 49ers? The Hawks seem to have a secondary and pass rush that will dominate the NFC next season but with Rodgers you have the man to combat that

We dont have the D to combat CK and all their weapons and their D is skilled in a way that slows down our strong O.

Hawks sacked A Rod 8 times i think last season, and our line has had no upgrades.
Their rush has..................i fear for A Rod's life

Wow I wasn't aware they dominated that much! I just remember that game for THAT decision.
I understand your points about the 49ers. The divisional games between them will be something else.

Well we needed one first down with 3 runs with 2 mins left and we failed so i dont think we should have made too much of a deal out of that decision as it should have been over.
Difference then to now is Wilson, when we played them, other than the last throw he was still quite raw and had only shown flashes of the brilliance we were to see by seasons end.

Their D is still very strong and with Wilson coming on so strongly they are now a bad bad matchup for us.

Oh yes I have circled their Week 2 match at QWest as one to watch for sure.

I have a soft spot for Russel Wilson I remember seeing his Gruden QB camp uploaded onto Youtube and thinking he has the right attitude, great knowledge and is a winner. I hoped he would get a chance and he hasn't half taken it.
I would love to see us take a shot on an EJ Manuel or Landry Jones. Maybe in the third where we have two picks or maybe the fourth

Agreed and as a Badger I was happy to see him do well.

Not a bad idea as the value is there and it would be a major bargain if either turned out to be a star

How much longer do you think Schaub will be around? And controversial i know but do you think he is capable of winning a Superbowl? (i think so btw)

With two picks in the third it could be a gamble worth taking.
As for Schaub I like him, I don't think he was the problem I think it was that once teams shut down Johnson and Daniels, who is a dependable but not spectacular TE, that was it for him. There were no more reliable targets.

Can he win a SB I think so. Call me crazy but if Flacco can do it, he can too with the right weapons
