    I've cooled on the Jerry pick, but I would have preferred Everette Brown.
    Thing is, a player tends to slide for a reason. Obviously a lot of teams had concerns about Brown, so he was far from a slam dunk.

    I guess it also shows that we're optimistic about Anderson hitting his stride. Hopefully not overly optimistic.

    Regarding our DTs, both Babineaux and Jerry are at their best when stunting, slanting etc, so I'm guessing that our scheme will feature a lot of movement against the run, rather than basic gap control.

    That can lead to a lot of TFL, but it can occasionally go badly wrong, and puts a lot of pressure on the linebackers.

    Still, if Anderson does progress, then JA98-Babs-Jerry-JA55 would be a hell of a pass-rushing D-line!

      the 3rd round pick will be the hardest to predict so far. We'll it's 90% gonna be defense, Im thinking probably a linebacker, but what do i know.

        im more likely to think Kroy Biermann at ROLB, and Trey Lewis at NT. I doubt we see that tho.

          Im pretty happy with day 1. I mean, both are respectable picks, and neither was a reach, and both help with our D. If Moore can play more like his junior year self, Itll be a great pick

          I mean, Crabtree wasnt the first WR taken, Sure he was hurt, but when you take one ahead of him that probably only went ahead because of speed, thats a bad pick. I love Heyward-Bey... in fact, im a huge fan, but to take him 7th, when Crabtree was pretty much the best WR in the draft, and the next 5 were slightly below, thats a reach.

          So is Jackson at 3... just crazy

            Jammal Anderson is a prototype 3-4 DE as well. We would just need anoher big MLB if Trey & Moorehead could hold down the NT.

                Anderson will never be a pass rusher. The team must assume he is a bust, which is partially true.

                IMO we came out of day one with our biggest need, DE, unsolved.

                And I don't think it's a mystery why Everette Brown fell. He's very short for DE or 3-4 OLB, and doesn't have the athleticism to overshadow it.

                Nonetheless, I still expect him to succeed. Good athlete who knows how to rush the passer, and great in pursuit.

                  Our pick coming soon.

                  Off the top of my head, I'd be happy with Sidbury, Duke, Macho, DJ Moore, Meredith...

                      Chris Owens? Curious.

                      I guess that's system-specific scouting for you...

                        That just awful. A #2 corner from San Jose St. who is extremely raw. Awesome.

                          Is he that raw? He started for three years. San Jose St isn't USC, but it's not a wastelands.

                          He's got good speed, decent size at 5'10" and 185, and has plenty of interceptions. Also seems like a good kid.

                          A reach, perhaps, but Baker, Douglas, and Jackson were all condemned as reaches last year, and they turned out ok.

                          Most likely to be our dimeback this year, behind Houston, Jackson, and Hutchins, and may compete for a starting role subsequently.

                          It does seem strange to pass on a lot of the bigger names that we've been talking about all year, but I'm happy to give TD a little bit of credit for knowing what he's talking about.

                            He's been described to me as quite raw with potential. While I have a lot of faith in TD, I'm just not a fan of drafting a raw player with poor measurables in the 3rd round.

                              Ive actually wached SJST twice this year.... from what I remember seeing, he doesn't make too many mistakes, and when he does, he is very good at making sure it's not a big one. Ive seen him slip, but on the same play, he made sure the WR had nowhere to go once he caught it. Every DB has gotten burned in their career... it just happens. But Owens is very good at reading plays and contains the receiver well... I am surprised with the pick, but I am fine with it.

                              Maybe if we are lucky, Sidbury will be there for our 4th rounder, although he is expected to be gone by then
