    All I am saying, him being beside a guy like Suh, and only getting 15 tackles. does not make me think he would have done much here either.

    We got a starting OLB, two starting DTs and a QB who everyone is high on, I don't know if we could have drafted much better last year.

    The moment that Nick Fairley took off his shirt at the combine you knew he wasn't 8th pick material. He has a Gary Coleman body.

    Amazing that some "experts" thought he was worth the top pick.

    You know how Maryland always has athletic freaks (that are suspect as football players)... I think Alabama is the opposite when it comes to training their athletes

    I emphatically wanted Watt with that 8th pick and started a whole thread about him. Never considered Locker more than a high 2nd rd prospect.

    I remember you wanted Watt, your thread swayed me to Watt, but of course we had no QB and had to take one so yeah...
