Not yet. He's fallen because of serious questions about his knee. May need Microfracture surgery.

Still hear Buffalo may take him at 34.

Locker at #8 still has me scratching my head. Tennessee picked the white Vince Young to replace Vince Young. Ponder went too high at #12, but I think he turns out to be the best QB of the bunch. Strong arm, accurate passer, has mobility, and is very smart.

I was surprised that Locker went ahead of Gabbert. Yeah Ponder was a reach. I guess the Vikings panicked with all the QB's coming off the board.

I'm very surprised that New England didn't go after Ingram. They could use a decent RB.

Heard that His career may only last 3-4 years because of His Knee.

Any thoughts?

What did you think of your team's picks?

We should see a pretty deep 2nd and 3rd rounds this year. 

Not as fun as it should've been because of the labor dispute. I usually watch the entire draft, but this is the 1st year in recent memory in which I could care less about it. Alot of trades didn't go down because of not being able to trade current players.

The Falcons swapped their First Round pick with the Brownies. They went from the 27th pick to the 6th pick.

The Falcons also surrendered this year's Second Round pick and this year's Fourth Round pick.

Then, they also give Cleveland their First Round and Fourth Round picks next year.

 

That seems like a little much for Julio Jones.  He was not even considered the best receiver in the Draft, but maybe the Falcons have better information, and he becomes one of the top receivers in the league.

Mike Holmgren schooled the Falcons on this. The Browns have alot of options for the next several years due to this trade.

I think the Giants got the best value in the draft with Prince Amukamara. Very good pick by the G-Men.

Short arms like Chris Benoit. Giants might have drafted a murderer. :tongue:

A little late getting started, but I was going to bunch the picks together anyway. 

33. NE - Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia

34. Buffalo – Aaron Williams, CB, Texas

35. Cincy – Andy Dalton, QB, TCU

36. San Fran – Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada

37. Cleveland – Jabaal Sheard, DE, Pittsburgh

38. Arizona – Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech

39. Tennessee – Akeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA

40. Dallas – Bruce Carter, OLB, North Carolina

41. Wash – Jarvis Jenkins, DT, Clemson

42. Houston – Brooks Reed, OLB, Arizona

43. Minn – Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame

44. Detroit – Titus Young, WR, Boise St.

45. Denver – Rahim Moore, FS, UCLA

46. Denver – Orlando Franklin, OT, Miami (FLA)

47. St. Louis – Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin

48. Oakland – Stefen Wisniewski, C, Penn St.


 

NE came out swinging  with the selection of CB Ras-I Dowling.  Dowling's stock was raising at a rapid rate.  

Cleveland is another team that seems to be attempting to build a solid foundation with a strong defense.  Jabaal Sheard is underrated to me; he may turn into a real force in the NFL.  Even though I do not like the Stains, so far, it has been a good draft for "Big Baby" Holmgren.

Dowling had high interest from the Steelers and the Lions, but it was Beli-cheat who came out as the winner in that sweepstakes.

Colts building that line of protection around "Golden Boy" Peyton with two OTs with the first two picks:

Anthony Castonzo, OT (1st pick)


Ben Ijalana, OT, Villanova (2nd pick)

49. Indy – Ben Ijalana, OT, Villanova

50. SD - Marcus Gilchrist, CB, Clemson

51. Tampa - Da’Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson

52. Giants - Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina

53. Chicago - Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon St.

54. Philly - Jaiquawn Jarrett, FS, Temple

 

 

Tampa decided to roll the dice with Da'Quan Bowers and his suspicious knee.  It is going to be boom or bust.  For a 2nd Round pick, unless the latest medical reports were catastrophic, I would take the risk on him. 

 

I really like Philly pick of Jarrett.  I think this is a good steady defender who needs to improve on his cover skills and techniques, but he will fit in well playing the run and blitzes for the Iggles.

Awesome man that the Bears got Stephen Paea. The 2 guys I wanted the Bears to get they got so far. I didn't think Paea would be around that long to fall to them.

 With Tommie Harris gone, this looks a very good pick. 

 

Pass rush: Doesn't provide much in terms of a pass rush. Is able to split gaps due to his burst off the snap, but doesn't have quick feet or agility to chase down the quarterback. Relies on his bull rush to knock interior linemen into the pocket and flush the passer into the arms of teammates. Lacks the height and arm length required in consistently altering passing lanes.


Run defense: Is quick enough to surprise his opponent with a burst through the gap, but will make his NFL millions due to the fact that he is a natural run plugger due to his short, squatty build and rare upper- and lower-body strength. Can be knocked off the ball when double-teamed, but flashes the ability to split them and is rarely pushed far before he's able to plant his legs in the ground and create a pile. Doesn't have the lateral agility and balance to beat runners to the sideline, but hustles in pursuit.


Explosion: Fires off the snap low and hard, flashing a sudden burst that surprises opponents. Burst is short-lived and only extends to his ability to go straight upfield. With his strength and bowling ball-like frame, Paea can explode into the ballcarrier if he gets a running start.


Strength: Ranks as one of the country's strongest players, reportedly boasting a 600-pound squat, 500-pound bench press and the ability to churn out 44 repetitions of 225 pounds. Is even stronger than his weight-room numbers indicate due to his natural leverage. Doesn't disengage from blockers as well as his strength would indicate due to the need to refine his hand technique and average lateral agility.


Tackling: Stays squared and low to knock down the ballcarrier near the line of scrimmage. Flashes explosive hitting ability, with a proven ability to knock the ball free. Tied the OSU record with four forced fumbles in 2009. Good upper-body strength to drag down ballcarriers as they attempt to go past him. Doesn't have the speed or change of direction to offer much in pursuit.


Intangibles: High-effort player was voted a team co-captain in 2009, in his second year in the program as a junior. Proved his toughness in 2008 by playing the final month of the regular season despite a painful bursa sac injury in his knee. Born in New Zealand, grew up in Tonga and dreamt of becoming a professional rugby player. Learned the English language after moving to the United States at age 16.
