    awesome read! thanks a lot!

    I LOVE THAT JAKE LONG INFO AND THE REST!

    also regarding the Long doenst have the speed thing, I mentioned that 2 months ago and i said he has that JT speed, NOT FAST but slightly quick speed. and i got BOMBED ON! with a lot of the "experts" on this board too.

    I think we go Jake Long round 1 and Avril 2b with a WR 2B, then a G/CB at 3 and the other if not a TE at 4.

    Hmm, thanks for the info, excellent.

    The thoughts on Chris seem to be what has echoed from most of the experts, he is just not a guy I would count out.

    The Jake stuff just affirms my belief in that he should be our pick.

    Does anybody know what our defense will run as far as coverage goes? I have been a huge advocate of Cason, but if we don't run a zone we maybe should look elsewhere.

    As have I of Cason. I thought he was more of a cover guy, sticking on the opposing WR's hip

    I dont know where he got Molden plays like Jane. No One ever threw at him in college he shut down everyone. He didnt have a lot of INTs because they threw to the other side of the field. If hes there at #64 id jump on him. I have seen mocks with him going between 37-45 and these are mocks like walterfootball.com. He had a great combine and have heard many good things about him.

    I think this is the exact reason that Chris Long has fallen out of favor with Parcells as the #1 pick. It WILL be either Gholston or Jake Long.

    the most important thing a Parcells crnerback can do is support the run. If they dont tackle they dont play. Charles Godfrey is a Parcells type. Tracy Porter probably aint

    I have to call BS on the Chris Long part, that guy has no clue what he's talking about.

    These are the averages of every single first round pick DE/LB since 2002, not exactly cream puff competition.

    40 yard dash
    Average LB listed: 4.63 (248 pounds)*Pro Day results included
    Average DE listed: 4.71 (271 pounds)*Pro Day results included
    Chris Long: 4.75 (272 pounds)

    20 yard dash
    Average LB listed: 2.70 (246 pounds)*Pro Day results included
    Chris Long: 2.70 (272 pounds)
    Average DE listed: 2.75 (268 pounds)* Pro Day results included

    10 yard dash
    Chris Long: 1.53 (272 pounds)
    Average LB listed: 1.60 (246 pounds)*Pro Day results included
    Average DE listed: 1.62 (268 pounds)*Pro Day results included

    This is the equivalent of more than a tenth of a second difference in the 40 dash, between Chris Long and the average LB listed. The difference between Long and the average DE listed is probably closer to .15 of a second, and people actually question his quickness?

    20 yard shuttle
    Average LB listed: 4.20 (247 pounds)*Pro Day results included
    Chris Long: 4.21 (272 pounds)
    Average DE listed: 4.30 (271 pounds)*Pro Day results included

    3 cone drill
    Average LB listed: 7.02 (245 pounds)*Pro Day results
    Chris Long: 7.02 (272 pounds)
    Average DE listed: 7.16 (271 pounds)*Pro Day results

    The lesser the time, the more value a tenth of a second has. 1/10 is 10%, 1/20 is 5%, the 1 is still the same, but it's value diminishes as the denominator increases. The 10 and 20 yard dashes are prime examples, because they're such small numbers to begin with. A .06 second of a difference in the 20 yard dash is probably the equivalent to .10 of a second in the 40 yard dash. A .04 second of a difference in the 10 yard dash is the equivalent to atleast a .10 of a second in the 40 yard dash etc.
