    Top 5 were solid. Only one I kiiiinda worry about is BRW. I don't know bout him. I don't think there was a better CB on the board when we took him, but I don't know if he was the CB we REALLY wanted.

    Now, everyone just look at the poll results. When is the last draft we would have seen that result? I think we have a lot to look forward to.

    I range it from a B- to an A-.

    I *really* wanted an end over a WR in the second. At the same time, I am excited to see what Hunter is going to bring. We are going to have a tremendous amount of firepower on offence and Locker should not have a hard time at all converting drives and being able to stay in the pocket and out of the dirt.

    Now, I think it could go up to an A- depending on how Gooden is used. If Ayers is sticking his hand in the dirt more often, that basically covers the end I was wanting. May sound a bit drastic, but our defense next year leans on this kid more than what I really want.

    I voted C.

    If I were to ONLY base the grade on the players we drafted, then I would probably say B+. I'm very optimistic about these guys and I'm excited to see what they bring on the field. The reason I dropped it down to a C is because at the time some of the pics were made, I think we passed over some better players.

    This Hunter kid is starting to grow on me, but I don't think we needed to trade up and I feel like we gave up too much. I think what makes me the most hesitant, is that SanFran took Tank Carradine in our spot. There were still a lot of good receivers on the board.

    I'd say B+.

    Let's hope Edwards is as good as Kiper claims he is. It sounds like he would've started on pretty much every team not named LSU. The stats aren't there because of limited playing time. I'm expecting him to be good for us. If not, we're in trouble.

    It would be an A draft if we addressed the DL more. Waiting until the 5th round was strange.

    I thought for sure when we traded up to #34, we were going to take Tank. I said multiple times I would've liked Damontre Moore at 70. I was shocked he was available. Then at 97, I was saying we should take Okafor.

    I also didn't like our final two picks because I don't think either have a shot at making the team. Why not take a chance on Da'Rick Rogers and Tyler Bray/Jordan Rodgers in the 6th/7th. All three of those would make our team easy and it would be the end of Hawkins/Williams and Rusty.

    Really wanted Rambo too, but I'll live without him. Hopefully there's a good FS we can scoop up next year and maybe Pollard can stick around.

    Overall, I'm thrilled with our draft and my complaints are minor. In the Reese/Reinfeldt era I b*tched after every draft.

    Obviously the Titans are fine with Morgan and Wimbley at DE and the signing of Sammie Lee Hill fixed any DT issues for them, considering we also have Casey and Martin.

    The only problem with this draft is that the Texans also had a great one.

    So did the Jags, but they're the Jags. Not gonna stress on that one. Cyprien is gonna be a great player though.

    Not sure about the Colts. They got Werner and who else? Not even sure Werner fits the 3-4.

    Lastly, I am sick and ****ing tired of hearing about damn Fisher having such a good draft and how he's turning that team around. Yes, they had a great draft. I can't deny that. But their coach's name is Jeff Fisher. They ain't going anywhere. They're poised for a wildcard one and done team.

    Yea Texans did end up with a good draft, but I am still not sure if they really improved. Besides, Big Bad Schaub is still their QB.

    I was also impressed with the Jags draft as well. They have a long way to go, but I have a feeling in 3 years the AFC South is going to get real tight if the trend continues.
