A few of these stand out as either players that many of us like as possible draft picks.

John Beck=Drew Brees - In one mock draft that I saw, Beck was taken as our second round pick as insurance for Brees and someone to develop.

Dwayne Bowe=Mushin Muhammed - I think this comparison is justified with the similarities of both to use their bodies well and their blocking abilities although I think Bowe is a bit more athletic than Muhammed.

Dwayne Jarrett=Larry Fitzgerald - I think this is a stretch here but some of their strengths are similar as is their production at the college level. Although I think that Fitz pro potential was greater and more foreseeable when he came out.

Justin Harrell=Kevin Carter - I dont agree with this comparison in that Carter primarily played end in his career and was more of a pass rusher than a dual threat player from what I recall.

Aaron Ross=Charles Woodson - If the experts are accurate in this comparison, then Im all on board with drafting Ross, but I dont see the same type of potential.

Chris Houston=Ahmad Carrol - SCARY if we draft him.

Eric Wright=Marcus Trufant - Very similar except for the character issues that are dropping Wright. Once again, if the experts are right, then this is just another reason why Im jumping on the bandwagon and am really heating up for us to get Wright.

I think a majority of them are retarded... especially the qb section and wr part. And Greg Olsen is absolutely NOTHING like Todd Heap.

(Still shaking my head wondering how the heck did the Saints lose to "Da Bores" in the playoffs with their QB Rex Ryan Leaf Heath Shuler Richard Todd Grossman)
