Draft Day 1

Now that Day 1 of the NFL Draft is in the books we can look back and see what we accomplished. I am very happy with the first three picks in our draft.

The Picks
Russell will hopefully become a fixture at the Quarterback position for the next 10+ years.

Zach Miller is the best TE on our roster right now.

Quentin Moses should end up starting opposite of Derrick Burgess.

Mario Henderson could be a future replacement for Sims but we probably won't see too much of him this year as long as we don't have a bunch of injuries.

Johnie Lee Higgins won't make an immediate impact on our offense but we could see him on special teams although I am still hoping Chris Carr is our return guy.

The Trade
One of the biggest moves for us was acquiring Josh McCown and Mike Williams from the Lions for a 4th round draft pick. McCown will most likely start until Russell is ready to go. That is if Andrew Walter can't get it done but McCown is a better fit for Kiffin's offense.

Mike Williams is a project but I am hopeful he'll turn out ok. I just hope it doesn't end up costing Ronald Curry any playing time.

Will Randy Moss be moved today? I certainly hope so. Maybe we should try to get a 2nd or 3rd in the 08 draft.
