    I'd say that's pretty accurate. Too bad they didn't mention Scaife, Roydell or Roby, all of whom have also looked very good, and I'd argue that Scaife should have been included on the list of surprises...but with three picks who have yet to take a snap, I'd say the B+ is a pretty fair overall grade.

    I think its way too soon to take what this guy is saying serious. Some of those high graded teams could easily flop in a year or two - you never know. Him not mentioning Scaife and Roydell is disappointing, especially Scaife.

    The ironic thing is Fisher was talking about Reynaldo Hill the minute he drafted him... also Kiper had mention that Hill and Williams were two of the biggest steals in the draft for the round they were taken in... both selected by Tennessee.

    That's true. If Hill turns into a solid starter and Roydell our #1 with both being possible future Pro-Bowlers, we might have gotten alot of bang for our buck. Good remark on the Kiper quote, btw, I totally forgot about that.

    I had Hill pegged as soon as he took #21, of course at the time I was just joking when I said Samari who.

    Bosseli, Babin and Johnson - Fire Casserly should be the warcry in Houston.

    I hope the guy stays there. At least we can get two wins in our division as long as Casserly is at the helm.
