    You need to get over this obsession now, because there is no way in hell that Turner is going to be a Raven.

    He is a great back, but Oz will not trade away a #1 and even if he did Turner is a cap killer.

    You should start looking elsewhere for your RB solution.

    If the Chargers put the top tender on Turner (I fully expect them to) then it won't just be a 1st for Turner, it'll be a 1st and a 3rd. We won't get anything in return. The Chargers are in a sellers market, teams need RBs and they're in a position where they have a surplus. However they don't HAVE to get rid of Turner and in fact would be well served not to in terms of maintaining depth at RB. They are in a position where they won't offload him unless they get absolutely blown away by an offer or someone decides to tender him a ridiculous contract offer and give up the draft picks in compensation.

    I can see it now...OZ takes the best player available in the first round (not a RB) and we end up taking a flyer on some RB in the 3rd or 4th round.

    I am betting that the Giants put that ginormous offer out there. They have a history of making bad deals with SD.

    !? It's not like the front office has a history of screwing up the draft, exactly. Have a little faith!

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    So does Atlanta id you ask most people. LT + Brees is a little bit better then Michael Vick. From now on if SD has the first pick, I wouldn't trade the tenth pick player for it, that QB will be a let down. Michael Bush with pick 29.

    Re: Now, Let's Talk Draft

    At the senior bowl workouts, the Ravens interviewed:

    Le’Ron McClain, Rufus Alexander

    per scout.com
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    Alright Rufus!

    Let's just avoid taking Kenneth Darby until the second day.

    Not really sure if Oz can hold of on that one though.

    Re: Now, Let's Talk Draft

    I actually think picking Darby on the second day would be an absolutely fantastic addition.

    Before the season Darby was considered a first-second rounder.

    His production dropped, but he's always been a very good back in the best division in NCAA football. He does everything well IMO.

    He has the potential to be a starter in the NFL and could end up as the Ravens franchise guy if we take him.

    Re: Now, Let's Talk Draft

    Kenneth Darby: (from nflcountdown.com)

    Strengths:
    Natural runner with great vision and instincts...Shows very good patience...Tough, runs strong and always finishes...Quick and changes directions well...Hits the hole hard and has a burst...Carried the load in college and was very productive...Has good hands and is a solid receiver out of the backfield...Smart and a hard worker.

    Weaknesses:
    Timed speed is only average at best...Has a lot of mileage on his tires...Runs too upright...Gives good effort as a blocker but is only average...Won't run away from anyone and is not a big play threat...Has trouble turning the corner and won't do much damage running outside...Upside is limited...Has some durability concerns.

    Notes:
    The type who does everything well but does not really stand out in any single area...An overachiever who gets the most out of his ability...Has probably maxed out his potential and is not destined for stardom but he could play a role for some team and contribute for a long time...Probably more of a backup at the next level.

    (He does not sound that good from this scouting report's standpoint).
    It's a new season! It's a new day!
