    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    yeah, and why would the Browns trade up one spot when the team in front of them is the only one guaranteed NOT to pick a running back? even if 'sota traded down, Miami wasn't going to pick an RB third either.

    +1, also it's relatively easy to find similar value in later rounds for running backs. Lots of analysts question taking RBs in the first round period, unless they're a transcendent talent like Peterson. Giving up a bunch of picks to move up one spot to snag Richardson seems silly.

    They probably traded up with Minn mainly to guarantee that Minn doesn't trade down with anyone else. They also had like 13 picks and it's not like Cleveland was going to draft well with all those picks anyway. The bigger joke is drafting Weeden in the 1st round.

    From the [limited] film I've seen, Weeden's a good QB with a solid arm. He'll learn pro-style offenses and defenses in the years to come. Probably not a Brady/Rodgers/Manning, and a guaranteed reach at 22, but he should provide good competition with McCoy.

    I think the Browns panicked when Kendall Wright was selected with the #20 pick. Weeden would probably be available at #37. I don't know the Browns roster at all, but I'd bet they could use an upgrade on the OL with Reiff (moved to the right side) or DeCastro.

    Too bad his career is going to be six or so years shorter than most QBs.

    6 years is 5 years too far down the road for 99% of rubes.

    Georgia State defensive lineman Christo Bilukidi made history Saturday by becoming the first Panther to be drafted by the National Football League. He was selected by the Oakland Raiders with the 19th pick in the sixth round, the 189th overall pick.

    Bilukidi, from Ottawa, Ontario, was a two-year starter and the Panthers' top defensive lineman in their first two seasons. Playing primarily defensive tackle but also lining up at defensive end, he had 10 career sacks and 16 tackles for loss.

    As a senior in 2011, he led GSU with five sacks and nine tackles for loss, along with 38 tackles, a pass breakup, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble. In 2010, he had 51 tackles, five sacks, seven tackles for loss and two forced fumbles.

    Bilukidi played two seasons at Eastern Arizona JC before transferring to Georgia State prior to the Panthers' inaugural season of 2010.

    He was born in Angola and also lived in France and Brazil before Canada, where he played just one year of high school football.

    As long as they're not as awesome as the Packers, I'm OK w/that.

    So pleased that the Nike has acquired uniform/gear licenses for the entire league.
