About Time For the Hour By Hour Threads

Draft applecart swings again… What is the old saying: “If you can’t figure out how the top of the draft is going to go, wait ten minutes because it will all have changed anyway…ââ ‚¬? certainly appears to apply to the 2006 version of the draft. Obviously, if New Orleans goes with D’Brickashaw Ferguson with the second pick and the New York Jets take Maryland TE Vernon Davis with the 4th pick, as has been rumored, then indeed the top of the board could have quite a different look than expected. That, for example, would put Green Bay in a position to possibly have a shot at NC State’s Williams, which might preclude them from trading out of the #5 slot, unless someone absolutely blew them away with an offer they couldn’t refuse. The way things appear to be evolving may also have an impact on Oakland. There has been speculation that the Raiders might consider trading up to get either of QBs Matt Leinart of Southern Cal or Texas’ Vince Young, however, in a Ferguson to the Saints, Davis to the Jets scenario, it is much more likely that one of those two QBs would drop all the way to the 7th selection. The Raiders only concern in that scenario would be that possibly one of Detroit at #9, Arizona at #10 or St. Louis at #11 would deal with San Francisco at #6 to jump ahead of the Raiders to get the QB still on the board. St. Louis, for example, has been rumored to be talking with Buffalo about a move up to the 8th spot to select Vanderbilt’s Jay Cutler, the third of this year’s top QB trio, while the Lions have also not ruled out taking Cutler with the 9th pick. However, if either Leinart or Young came into range at the 6th pick, either or both the Rams or Lions, as well as the Cardinals who also need a developmental QB behind incumbent starter Kurt Warner, could set their sights higher. Meanwhile, down at the bottom of the first round, Chicago, which has the 26th pick is sending out signals that the Bears, with only 6 total picks, might be willing to trade down, while defending super Bowl champion Pittsburgh, with 10 overall selections, may be in the mood to try and move up.

RE: About Time For the Hour By Hour Threads

dude if the jets are interested in davis i haven't heard and they have done a good job hiding it. i read that too from your other post and i was thinking what is this new story. i have heard brick and williams are of interest to them. don't know how much of a smoke screen this is but i have read they are willing to sit at 4 and aren't willing to tarde up for a qb. hold on i will post a link. you may have already read it though kelley

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

I am surprised PFT has not mentioned the Bongo phenomenon. On the Jets board, that one thread they now call Bongopalooza. It has 85 pages, 1693 replies, and 106,587 views. c c ca craaaazy

According to ESPN this morning, Matt Leinart has been staying in New York for a while. Now, their saying inside sources are telling them the Jets want Leinart more than they have been letting on. I love it!!!! Bring on the trade for the #4, #29, & whatever else the Jets are gonna' give up!!!! Now, there should be no quarrels about selecting Hawk at #4. Sorry Green Bay.

man i have read everywhere that the jets are staying at 4. of course that could be a smoke screen. even on espn where i heard they actually like matt it said they weren't looking to move up. i am not sure we are going to get a trade and if we do it might be with the raiders. but we will find out sat

Hope Tenn wants Matt for real and gets scared. swap #1 and get there #2 next year. If VY is on the guy we are screwed.
When do we do the 15 minute Thread for the draft?

the titans are saying vince is the pick... you know what that means? matt leinart will be real pick... they are saying that to try to cool off the jets on any idea of trading up to nab leinart... if they say they want young, the jets feel comfortable at #4 and feel they don't have to force the issue and still come away with leinart, who they want anyway... but then the titans really select leinart and the jets are sitting there dumbfounded... unless they opt to trade up to ensure themselves leinart... it's all bullcrap until tagliabue makes the announcement... you can't trust any shred of information that is reported at this point...
