    I still feel if we drafted Rich Gardner in the 3rd, we can certainly take a gamble on Jonathan Wade in the 3rd. I wonder how high he'll go. I've felt for a while he could be an asset in this defense, and is flexible enough to play multiple positions. People say he's raw at CB, but I just see a football player when I watch him play.

    Gardner has nothing on Wade. Wade's college production this year alone in pd's and int's about equaled Garnder's career. Gardner was a 4.53 guy. I don't think Wade is much of a risk (even though he's a little green). He may not even be there in the 3rd.

    Landry.....wow. Hey Fish, sure we don't need a S? :blah:

    Well...

    I still can't figure out how Wade is not the 1st or 2nd CB rated. The guy can cover very well, supports the run, and is an excellent athlete. The only knock I've seen is his attitude. People wonder if he'll work this hard once he gets his payday. So I'm guessing his interviews are crucial for where he goes.

    I can't see him falling to round 3 and I think someone could certainly take him in rnd 1 (though I think he goes in rnd 2).

    Wade isn't very strong or physical but he made some HUGE strides this year when he played in spring practice and dropped track for the first year.

    I'm just hoping we'll draft some guys from good, winning programs - SEC, Big 10, USC, etc. this year instead of trying all these small-school guys hoping to find a "steal".

    If a guy can prove it in a tough league like the SEC or Big 10, he can be coached up in the NFL...

    Just my $.02
