  • 2009 DE Updates

    http://www.walterfootball.com/draft2009DE.php

    I don't see Jeremy Jarmon committing...this is a VERY STRONG DE class which is rare.
    2014-2015 Kentucky Wildcats (38-1)

    Congrats to Wisconsin. Even more congrats to UK haters.

    This is a strong DE class, but so was the '08 one, and Gholston, Campbell, Harvey, etc still declared.

      Tyson Jackson>Michael Johnson

      Also I think Tyson Jackson is the best pure DE in this class

        Amen. Johnson has gone up your board for no real reason, but I don't see him as a 4-3 DE.

            I don't consider him a true DE. He'll be a 3-4 5tech or a 4-3 UT.

              I couldn't disagree more.

              We only had 4 solid DEs in Long, Gholston, Harvey, and Jackson (all-around good but not great).

              It was a very shallow DE class, but with some good talent in the first round. The 2009 class is looking much deeper with still great talent in the first round.

                I can't see any of the prospects being as highly rated as Chris Long and Vernon Gholston, though. Much deeper class, but I don't think it'll be as strong up top.

                  Elite talent is a very poor way to look at an entire draft class. I HATE how people just look at the top ten or just the first round and evaluate a draft class.

                  I'm not saying you do it, blaze, but most do...and it is wrong.

                    As long as we're clear that I did not judge the 2009 class to be weaker than the 2008 class, fine. =P

                    Honestly, I haven't looked at the 2009 DE's enough.

                      I didn't say the 09 class is weaker. However, it is true that none of them are as good as Long/Gholston.

                            I think DE Mitch King - Iowa is underrated and he could be a major sleeper candidate for the 2009 draft simply because Iowa's talent on defense was gutted in the 2008 draft, having lost a total of 4 defensive stars to the NFL. Now the Big Ten teams can focus all of their efforts on stopping Mitch King.

                            WFB Comments on Vikings @ Steelers Game Rigging
                            PuppyPuncher:"It sure was nice enough of Roger Goodell to let the refs from Ark-Florida officiate the Vikings-Steelers game"
                            NoNonsenseCoach:"As a Steelers fan living in Pittsburgh I can still admit that tripping penalty was a complete ghost call."
                            Simonds:"The tripping call was awful, yes, but there were a number of other absurd calls that went against the Vikings, including a DEFENSIVE delay of game penalty against the Vikings only called after a failed attempt to convert a third and 2 by the Steelers. Even the commentators were utterly floored that the refs made that call."
                            Wraith36444:"A shady tripping call on Minnesota essentially gave the game to the Steelers. The Vikings were the better team, but it is too hard to beat a decent team and the refs. Oh and Harvin is the man."
                            MaineMan:"I have to agree that it was an awful call and that it changed the outcome. Overall a great game by the Vikes and tragic that the well-deserved victory was stolen away like that."
                            PaddyPatriot:"I've seen this play and I have to agree, I can't believe they called it tripping"
                            Johndoe:"You know the officiating is bad when a Steeler's fan, like myself, thinks it was pretty bad."
                            Steelers_Pens_Fan:"I will admit that the whole "tripping" thing probably shouldn't have been a flag."
                            ZN0rseman:"It's great to know that good old fashioned pro football game rigging is still alive and well in America."
                            Klunker18:"I'm with Z on this one. Definitely one of those games that makes you wonder if the NFL wants certain teams to win."
                            TRICKaz"I agree that was a BS call"
                            InjuredReserve:"Have yet to hear anyone say it was the right call. Seems as if the Vikings were cheated a bit."
                            Eagles4Life:"Coaches just need to be able to challenge penalties"
                            EL_Guapo:"The tripping call was bad, the delay of game was stupid Either way, the Vikings showed they are a top team."
                            EllijayFalconsFan:"The tripping penalty was rediculous."
                            Archon095:"Even as a Steeler fan I agree that the call was bull."
                            BroncosCon:"I'm sorry that was a total bull**** call and it changed the outcome of the game. Pittsburgh still won, but it was almost like Denver winning at Cincy."

                            Tony Dungy:"The Vikings are just one bad tripping penalty away from being undefeated.
                            Jon Gruden:"That was just a bad, bad call. It cost the Vikings an important win at Pittsburgh, and it could really hurt them in the post season."
