Where'd you copy and paste from. That wasn't poster prose, that was writer prose. From an "official" venue, or a guy writing an article for his own website?
Attrubutions please.

(P.S. the "give us a shout if we did miss anyone who should be there." is a dead giveaway. Not to mention the missing list)

We'll get somewhere between the 13th-20th pick...

With that said... What IF we pass on or miss out on a player such as Joe Thomas who is "SO RARE." We won't get another chance to pick a player like him in the 2008 draft...

Or will we?

You ain’t seen nothin’ yet… The 2007 draft clas looks like it should be a decent draft year with some real strength at WR, the defensive line, CB, and OT. However, teams that fail to find what they are looking for at this year’s draft will probably want to be just a little patient as there is a potentially very good draft class coming along in 2008.

Like any year, how well the 2008 draft grades will depend on which underclassmen leave school early, but next year’s draft looks like it will have a strong QB crop including Louisville’s Brian Brohm, Erik Ainge of Tennessee, andre Woodson of Kentucky, John David Booty of USC, and Chad Henne of Michigan among others. Like this year, though, the real strength of the 2008 draft could be at WR, especially if a large group of junior-to-be WRs leave school next winter.

Meanwhile, the best prospect overall at the 2008 draft could end up being star Arkansas RB Darren McFadden who heads a very talented group of RBs returning next fall. There isn’t necessarily a lot of size at RB but there will be plenty of speed coming from the likes of juniors-to-b Ray Rice of Rutgers, Steve Slaton of West Virginia, Ian Johnson of Boise State and James Davis of Clemson and Jamaal Charles of Texas.

There should also be plenty of talent up front on defense at both DE and DT, as well as at OT where Sam Baker of USC and Jake Long of Michigan headline an impressive list of LT prospects. There should also be relatively strong classes next year at both CB and OLB, whereas it could be a down year of sorts for interior offensive linemen, MLBs and safeties. For the record, here is an early listing of some of the top prospects by position for the 2008 draft.

Note that this list isn’t meant to be exhaustive, but rather give a flavor of what the strengths and weaknesses of next year’s draft, but give us a shout if we did miss anyone who should be there.

If we went 8-8 it would be a miracle, and I'd believe in Santa Claus again.

But would 8-8 save Gruden's job?

Here's an example from just one post below.  Use this format at leats please

http://www.suntimes.com/sports/football/bears/234901,CST-SPT-mully30.article

The Bears can't afford to lose Briggs for nothing, so you can consider it a lock that they'll bite the bullet and settle on a one-year deal for more than $7 million that is the average of the league's five highest-paid linebackers. That's when things will get interesting. What does Briggs do when the Bears slap him with the franchise tag by Feb. 22?

Does a guy making $721,600 this season jump at the chance for multimillions, or does a Drew Rosenhaus client follow the lead of defensive end Adewale Ogunleye -- whose acquisition brought Rosenhaus into the Bears' locker room -- and refuse to sign the tender offer in an attempt to force a trade?

I think it might.  It depends on whether it's a "good" 8-8 or a "bad" 8-8.  If our young players look good, and we win some games convincingly on both sides of the ball, and stay competitive in most others, I'd think he'd save his job.  If we beat bad teams, get lucky breaks and don't produce offensively and finish 8-8, he's probably gone.

Depending on how the draft goes and if we get Carr or Garcia I could see us winning at least 8 games.  I also think that Gruden and Allen will be back in 08.

Next year, I hope we snag Colt Brennon 1st round......



Anyone who thinks Tim Tebow will be a great NFL QB is an idiot.

Doesn't Hawaii throw the long ball a lot? We need a QB form the West Coast offense... Or maybe Chris Simms has been studying all year...
