With the draft coming up in a month, this is the time for me to answer some questions and thoughts about the draft. The Tim Tebow situation, who do the Rams pick, and more. So just sit back (grab a beer) and hopefully enjoy the show (no refunds!).
The Tim Tebow Situation: As most football fans know, Tim Tebow's combine performance was less than stellar. All of his college seccess and he is finally learning, it means nothing in the NFL. People have him going in the fourth, fifth round. Honestly, I don't think we need to be that harsh. Lots of teams are using the Wildcat at least once every game. The Wildcat comes from the shotgun, something Tebow excels at. With the Wildcat era coming, teams need mobility now at the QB position. Plus, he improved his throwing motion and release. I see Tebow going in the late second round, early third round.
Story Time: Remember when Kerry Collins was on the Raiders?? Good times back then. Now the Raiders are playing like barf and have been drafting even worse. Here is a timeline of the Raiders draft picks. 2007: Not much explaining here, just the fact they drafted Russell, arguably the biggest joke in the NFL. 2008: They go for a running back this year. Who do they pick??? Darren McFadden, who has so far only proved himself as a 3.0 yards per carry rusher who gets injured a lot. 2009: Another attempt at improving the offense, they pick Darius Hey-ward Bey, mostly known for his speed. Around 10 catches and he played all 16 games. That is just sad. Storytime over.
