    How the heck can we miss out on players like RB QB and TE that we needed when our old reject front office Spielman picks up a good QB an TE while we founder in the abysis.

    Please let me know this is terrible, welcome to Suckville

    OL was also a pretty big need as well. Was it not?

    Trading up and giving up picks to take a plug and play RB? Thread might have been crap before the pick, but after I think it has some merit.

    The pick is fine. It's the situation the team is in that's the problem. Thomas has decent speed and is a good replacement for a worn-down Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. Good player, good value. Pick up another RB in the fourth round though with big play ability.

    We're a running team that couldn't run the ball and doesn't have it's starting 2 running backs. Are you mental? lol.

    And we could have taken one in the 3rd round and not lost picks. Daniel Thomas is NOT a good enough player to give up those picks.

    Mallett goes to the pats as "their top rated QB on the board" uuggghhhh. That should end the debate as to wether he is any good.

    It's unreal how many people are ready to condemn these picks, Loosen up people it's a wait and see game, Daniel Thomas may be a stud for us, maybe maybe not, wait and see. The front office has a plan and has not shared it with the rest of us so if you take the time and try to understand the plan it may make sense. OR we just might be up the creek :)
    Patience !!!

    Randy Mueller and Cam Cameron had a plan. Nick Saban had a plan.

    All I know is that so far the "plan" has produced a pair of 7-9 seasons, seen most of the coaching staff dismissed, seen a lack of QB, seen safe safe and more safe, and now seen us pick a guard in round 1 and pick a worse version of Ronnie Brown with fumbleitis in round 2 after trading half our remaining picks to do it.

    As for slow, he ran the 40 with a low of 4.52, Mark Ingram's low. Ingram's 10 yard split was 1.53, Thomas's was 1.54. Please, spare the BS.

    By far the worst FO in the league today. Congrats to the Patriots ensuring they'll be AFC Champs for the next decade at least, while we ensure another mediocre season, with no QB to speak of.

    Who gives a **** about Ingram? i think Ingram is extremely overrated. I dont like the Thomas pick at all. All offseason the front office is talking about adding explosiveness and speed. Then we trade up to draft a mediocre RB. I'd be much happier taking Kendall Hunter at 79, and then Bilal Powell in the 6th, while keeping all of our picks. All I know is we better hit a homerun at TE in the 4th round or Im gonna be pissed.

    Um, we haven't hit Free Agency yet and we've had 2 picks in the draft. You are acting like we just had a full draft of defensive linemen and didn't address a single need in free agency. Our off season is just beginning. What good is drafting a bunch of explosive players when we don't have guys to block for them?

    Btw, fun fact: There are more "explosive players/speedsters" at the RB position in the later rounds (Devine, Lewis, Locke, Fannin, Rodgers, Grigsby, Jones, etc...). Can we wait until everything plays out until we start bashing this front office some more? IIRC this front office has been pretty damn solid in the off seasons they have been here.

    I think its pointless to compare to past regiemes, done and gone. But comparing Thomas to say Mallett would be fair. Obviously we dont know how they will play however this is what I know:
    1) Teams do better drafting top qb talent and getting lower rb talent not vice versa
    2) Mallett was thought of by many as the top QB talent physically including NE
    3) Pats draft well and hit far more than miss and had Mallett as their top qb
    Dont know where thay had Thomas graded out, but given that they didnt pick him sooner when they had a RB need I would say not as high as Mallett. So for me I am more likely to question a team that passes on a high talent at QB, a needed position that requires top talent (Mia) than I am a team that drafts well and passed on Thomas despite the RB need taking Mallett with no QB need knowing its greater value (NE). Maybe its just me but I would rather take a chance and draft top QB talent in the later part of the second than top RB talent when both are needs, assuming both are top talents and not sure about Thomas.

    Nothing is worse than the Raiders. How they continue to blow BB is beyond me. Thank God BB does not know how to draft.

    Thats exactly why we dont trade up and take a RB and pass on a QB when both are needs!! How many teams do extremely well with later picked QBs? Most are 1st rounders.

    How does this make Thomas faster? I don't get it. He's slow, and will not be able to reach the edge in the NFL. LBs can cheat the inside with him and just go for the strip play after play.

    Watch the Nebraska game (a good college defense) and watch them just bottle him up time and time again.

    I'm sure that Arian Foster guy who lead the league in rushing had a blazing 40 time. And you're going to point to one game? Sample sizes bro.

    Ingram had the quickest 10 yrd time, DT was .01 behind his, that is for context, he also had 40 or more runs of 10 yds or more meaning he does create chunk plays as most of the time chunk yds come from..broken tackles..something RB and RW no longer did in 2010.

    Ingram is slow as well, but has a better overall game in my opinion. Ingram also came out of the SEC. I would have preferred to trade for LeShoure when he started dropping if we were planning a trade. I would have overall rather just stayed at our third round spot.

    Arian Foster I think is Tennessee's all time leading rusher in the SEC nations toughest defensive college conference.

    Thomas did well racking up yards against mediocre teams, then didn't perform so well when going up against a bigger faster defense like Nebraska. Now he is facing quality defenses every week. I don't think it bodes well, sample size or no. I welcome him to prove me wrong.
