as i read some of the banter about the upcoming draft... something blows my mind. the majority of people actually WANT russel okung, eric berry, and/or gerald mccoy. eric berry will be great. i have no doubt in my mind. ive heard the comparisons to ed reed touting him as the next great safety. but... guys be reasonable. with delmas or "six gauge"? or whatever u guys call him which i dont fully understand, will be a great safety as well. the play strong and free, but we dont neccesarily need another safety. bob sanders has mostly unkonw melvin bullitt right next to him, polamalu has 34 year old ryan clark, and ed reed has the inconsistant dawan landry next to him. great safetys can cover up defensive holes. but ive also heard about moving him to corner. the most importnat thing to remember is u dont spend 2nd overall money on a player uve never seen play the posistion u want. its not even worth it.
russel okung.... reminds me a little of jeff backus. okung just doesnt finish plays? my 5 year old cousin could run block better than him. if the plays not going to his side he basically lets his man thru. when ok state has played unranked and unheralded teams, sure okung does well. not spectactular. not great. but he gets the job done. im just not fully sold on this man... although pairing him and pettigrew together could bring some chemistry to our line.
and lastly... gerald mccoy? he has done nothing this year. i dont even want to get into how unimpressive hes been. i'd bring stats and whatnot into it but i dont want to think what would happen if he was drafted by the lions. he flat out sucks. i hate to bring my 5 year old cousin into this again but im sure she could atleast crawl under the legs of the lineman and bring down the qb a few more times than he has.
btw this is all if suh is gone and we cannot trade down.
