DeLo of ESPN Hotseat

Postby widetrak21 » Thu Apr 27, 2006 10:05 am

last night. They immediately asked him where he fit into the ranks of top 5 corners in the league. I"m sitting there thinking, well thats cool as hell that he's already considered in the tier without question (i easily agree). Well he turned around and said #1, then they flash to the Chad Johnson comments. Honestly this is gonna turn into a huge story this year! Basically Chad had called him out as the #1 CB (old news), and then Delo turns around and calls Chad out last night. Basically said, "If you come knocking on someone's door long enough, the trouble is, they just might answer!" Then went on to say it was gonna be like Ali v. Frasier, lol.

Only other comment I remember is them asking him what would he do about Vick and his play. He started by saying a health Vick is a win for everyone on the team, bottom line. He finished up by saying that if Vick is throwing for TD's (instead of just running), that it was a good sign, b/c it probably meant we were goin' to the SBowl. Sounds good to me, b/c the NFC's wide open this year, why not us.

Lookin forward to it. If we can acquire a run stuffing DT before the start of the season and a CB in the draft with starting potential, we will be a top 5 D next season..

Cedric Griffin's who I'd like to target at CB. I read Michael Huff's draft chat and he can't figure why he's projected as low as a second rounder. Other than that you're right about the big DT, but I don't have any idea where it would come from.

Otherwise we need a future RB - Jerome Harrison, Brian Calhoun
Another backup QB - Drew Olsen
Safety prospect - ???
OG/C - Will Montgomery

geez...please just say no to Cedrick Griffin....

he's cannot play in man coverage, and we don't play a Tampa 2....

he'd just be a taller version of Webster, constantly getting picked on by opposing teams...

I'd much rather have Richard Marshall or Kelly Jennings....

Lots of drafts are projecting the Falcons to select Youboty and I agree he is the best fit.

We better draft a DB in the 2nd round because I want a Surtain/Madison combo at CB and getting Hall/Youboty combo could be just that.

with all the talk about Maurice Drew moving up the draft boards we might need to take him in the second.....


everyone is going crazy for him all of a sudden

Ironic my most recent mock draft for the contest has the runningbacks falling to the bottom 10 choices.

D-Lo and Chad were going at it for about 15 minutes on NFL Total Access on the NFL Network tonight. Very entertaining!

Kelly Jennings - he's supposed to be gone after the first round

Youboty would be a good option, I kinda forgot about him. At one time they had him mocked in the first.
