    it's a double edged sword

    you need a solid cohesive offensive line to allow time for the QB
    you need a mobile QB just in case the line breaks
    you need an agile RB to bounce it outside when there's no holes

    ANYONE could make a valid argument for either Young, Bush or Ferguson

    I'd find it harder to make as big an argument for AJ

    I don't like the idea of taking Brick at #3
    that being said, I don't like taking a LB there either

    there are 2 franchise QB's and 1 RB available
    you take one of the 3 or trade out to someone who will

    Brick and AJ are likely 4 /5 respectively
    if we want one of the two, we can trade back a slot

    no doubt in my mind that NYJ wil take whoever is there @3

    Brick is the most sure thing in the draft? Based on what?

    Maybe the LT position translates easier to the NFL than the other skill positions but how often has three players with the skills and stats of Young, Lienart and Bush come into the league?

    Bush is there with Brick certainly I think. Young and Leinart are not sure things by any stretch of the imagination. Even Chow has said that Leinart is not the same prospect as a guy like Carson Palmer. And Young is a great athlete, but there are certainly lots of areas he will have to improve in. Just because Matt Leinart put up great #s playing on a team full of future NFL players against mostly average college teams doesnt mean those #s and his average arm strength will transfer to the NFL. For every Manning or Palmer, or Mcnabb, you have Couch, Harrington, Leaf and Akili Smith. Taking a qb in the top 10 is certainly hit or miss, and if we miss then we have really set ourselves back. I do like Young, Id much rather take Brick over Leinart though.

    I've yet to read this quote from Chow on Leinart. Anyone want to share a link to it?

    I dont have a link, it was from Wycheck on his morning show a few weeks ago. But clearly just watching Palmer and Leinart play you can clearly see the differential in arm strength.
