Some Random Draft Thoughts Post McNabb


Don't really feel like giving a big write-up but wanted to throw a thought or two out.

 

1)What does this mean with the #4 pick? - For the sake of argument I am gonna rule out Bradford at that spot or any crazy trade where we get rid of McNabb(can that even happen?).  That makes it look like Okung all the way.  He might not be there but I'm not as convinced as others that Detroit will take him.  What do you guys feel about a trade down?  It can help mitigate the draft picks we are now missing.  For me it depends on how far we fall.  We have set this team up so we need a Day 1 starter at LT.  No taking a year at RT or having to beat out a vet.  A starter from the moment we draft him.  I'm not too sure about any of the second tier guys(Davis, Campbell, Brown, Saffold) being able to step right in like that.  Since we now have an aging, injury prone QB I'm not sure we can afford to hope that one of those guys is ready.  This makes a trade down risky as we HAVE to protect McNabb this year.  What do you guys think we should do?

 

2)Is this the first step in a major housecleaning? - I've been kicking this around in my head for awhile.  There is a new Sherriff in town and I can see him completely cleaning house at the draft.  He has no allegiance to any of these peoples.  I've been of the thought that we might see 5-6 more guys go out in draft day trades for late round picks.  The fact that we were shopping Big Al before he blew off workouts and Landry might give a little more credibility to that though.  Especially when certain guys like Carlos haven't been in a hurry to get in line I can't see Shanny keeping them.  He doesn't care when they were drafted.  I can easily see us shipping out Rocky, Carlos, At least one of our SS's, Golston, Carter for 4-6th round picks.  I know alot of people have thought we would trade those guys for second or third rounders but I see us having a firesale.  I think that might be partly why they weren't afraid to give up draft picks for McNabb.  Do you guys think that is likely?  Would you be happy with that?
