    I'm not saying I don't like him. In fact, I think he's going to be a pretty damn good football player. I'm just saying that he was drafted in the correct spot, and he's not nearly as "ready" as he should be, physical freak though he may be.... Even though he felt like he should have been a first rounder, I (and evidently all the GM's, coaches, and scouts of the NFL) don't think he was. He would have gone much higher I think, had he come out last year. As little sense as that makes from a readiness standpoint. USC had a lackluster year.


    I think he's going to be a "Vernon Davis"... two years of learning and then he'll start to fulfill his potential.

    I can live with that.

    re "character issues" I can't stand that term. I would be shocked if any of these guys- and this includes the choir boy TT- have not done some stupid shit in college. Out to drinks and the strip club with the boosters at age 19? Somethings wrong if you did not pull a few stunts like that.
    At the NFL level their all shit heads, Tom Brady knocked up some chick, Sea Bass was a straight alcoholic out of college, Ray Lewis fucking killed a man, and yet they are all pro bowlers.

    I want a guy that plays hard, is coachable, learns from his mistakes off the field, and is not an ego maniac. I don't care if he had a few beers at age 20 or got caught smoking weed in the off season.

    Course, I could be totally wrong. I'm no Mel Kiper Jr.

    Rams have drafted rather poorly so far, in my opinion. They've played it too safe, and not addressed enough needs. Only pick I like so far is Jerome Murphy, the CB out of USF. We desperately need a receiver so I'm unsure why this hasn't been addressed yet. Not sure how I feel about what's left in that area, I was hoping to snag Golden Tate. Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

    Well at least you'll get to watch him twice a year.

    Am furious with the Eagles draft. Too furious to even put into words right now how furious I am.

    My vote goes to Eric Berry being the stud from this draft in 10 years.

    I love the Walter Thurmond pick... not so sure about LenDale White. Know nearly nothing about Kevin Vickerson who also came over in the LenDale trade. Looks like he was a practice squad player/NFL Europe guy.

    ...They've got an awful lot of picks coming up to turn things around at least. I'm not too thrilled with my Browns' so far. I like Haden, and I love the patience on Colt McCoy, he was a good value at 85 overall. But I thought they reached a bit on Ward (S) and Hardesty (RB), and both have injury histories to boot. Also, I wanted Bruce Campbell at OT.

    The funny thing was, I was following the draft on my computer and I said to myself, "If Golden Tate gets past the Eagles and Seahawks near the end of the 2nd, he'll still be available at the beginning of the 3rd." And lo and behold the Seahawks drafted him. Now I hope he's a huge bust.

    Colt McCoy was a great pick, I would have actually liked to see the Rams trade down and taken him instead of Bradford, and fill out other areas of the team. Think you're going to be very disappointed with Haden, though.

    The Seahawks are blowing me away with the quality of their drafting. If we can just get TE Dickerson...

    Sure looks great on paper, doesn't it?
    I'm tentatively optimistic about LenDale. I think Julius Jones is about to become available.

    I'm already thinking about next year and kind of hoping the Seahawks can position themselves for the Jake Locker sweepstakes, but I don't want them to suck too bad either. I'm kind of torn.

    I don't know if you watch the Pac-10 at all, but I'm an Oregon State fan so I've seen Locker play once a year for the past 3 (I think) years, and he's been excellent. I believe he has the capability of being a great QB at the NFL level, but imo he would do best brought along slowly.

    Several GM's have said Locker would probably have been the #1 pick had he come out this year.

    Bay area teams did well.
    Still can't believe my 'skins passed on the Terps' Campbell in the 4th.
