    mario williams is not the best player in the draft, he's the best athlete. sorry. with all of his size and speed he managed less than 30 sacks as a three year starter. that doesnt impress me, when terrell suggs had 20+ in one year.

    RollTide, the difference is I don't believe GM's rank players solely on their individual abilities and skills. I believe Hawk for instance is ranked lower this year, than he would be in a different year, because there are so many other really good LB's in this draft. Considering we just signed David Thornton he probably moves another few places down Reese's board.

    Assuming reese has a big board of the best players he would likely rate them as prospects first without regard to need. A big board is a ranking of players as prospects as they compare to each other. Need wouldn't move a guy down it just makes it less neccessary to draft him.

    Why would you compare suggs a 260 lbs speed rushing 3-4 linebacker to a guy who is almost 300 lbs? Williams is 35 lbs heavier and 4 inches taller and runs a similar 40.

    Williams was very productive this past season with 13.5 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss. He played well enough in 2004 to make all acc.

    This guy is more a kevin carter type player. A big physical defensive end that would allow us to move KVB over and make us stronger against the run.

    That's a pretty good comparison actually. He is not anywhere near as quick as a Freeney, a Kearse, a Peppers or a Suggs. All those guys are mid-4.4 guys. Mario Williams is not going to rack up big sack totals. As someone has already mentioned, he wasn't all that productive on the college level in terms of sacks either.

    Would Kevin Carter be worth the #3 pick overall?

    funny you should mention that. we had the opportunity to draft carter at 3 instead of mcnair in 1995. obviously we took mcnair and rams took carter at 6.

    it will probably end up being the same this year, IMO.

    LOL wasnt it kevin carter and mcnair that Reese and Fish had to choose between last time we had the 3rd pick? Maybe that means if a few years we'll have both the top qb and DE. :))

    That's incredibly ironic.

    Actualy look at that draft- there are a few similarities.
