They had no questions about Crabtree or Robiskie. Not surprising. I'd rather have Robiskie over Nicks, Harvin or Britt.

Good read...sintim is someone who I think could work on the Broncos. Still like him after reading that, and still want to some how get Raji.

Orakpo: "perfect 3-4 guy"..."not a really good space athlete". You can be one and the other at the same time. Orakpo doesn't have the Everette Brown moves in space, but he's a better athlete than most 3-4 OLBs in the NFL.

To answer a previous question, the average score for QBs was mentioned to be I believe 19.5, so yes, Pat White did a pretty good job. Here are some observations I found interesting:

1. Percy Harvin didn't seem like much of a character issue to those scouts. I wouldn't take him in the first round though.

2. James Casey being ranked so low - I find him to be getting very underrated. He can't block but he has great versatility.

3. Michael Oher ranked way lower than other offensive tackles. To me the other three are much better but I thought I was in the minority.

4. The comments about Orakpo being lazy, and that a lot of people think he projects better as an outside linebacker than DE.

5. The hate on Everette Brown. He seems to be regarded very lowly in comparison to how he is received on here.

Just some that stood out to me.

I really enjoy these annual draft preview articles by Bob McGinn, they don't mean too much but are very interesting to read.
