    Great draft so far, guys. Brad Childress is slowly instilling confidence in me.

      I agree on the WR's .. Allison and Rice will be very helpful.
      Would still have loved to have added D-Jax to the mix. We need
      a legit WR. As good as these kids are ...right now they're just good
      prospects.

      I still think Brandon Frye from Virginia Tech would be great late value.
      He's versitale and has nice footwork and decent strength. he's young
      to the position and that's what's keeping him from being taken early.
      Mason Crosby would be interesting also. Longwell is clutch and top notch.
      But Crosby could be a "specialist" guy to boot kickoffs thru uprights.

        yeah Crosby be intersting and i was just shocked that KC took Medlock over Crosby. I think we have to go OL in the 6th and then 7th fill some positions.

          I'm suprised no one has mentioned what I feel is a very good 2nd day selection in Brain Robinson who gives us a speed guy off the edge. As many of you have pointed out RB was not a real need in round 1, but in every round following that we've done a great job of gettting top value and filling needs at the same time. I also think if we could pick up a project T late here it would be a good move. In compairison to last years draft I dont think anyone should be complaining.

            I missed what we got in return for trading our 4th round pick to Dever I was told a 3rd next year and a 6th and 7th this year, but haven't seen us with a 6th round pick according to ESPN.

              Christ...Houston finally pulled their heads out of their backsides and took
              O-Line help. I predict Frye will have a very nice career.

              Hmmm well there's still Tim Duckworth out of Auburn.
              He did help pave the way for 1000 yard backs Ced Benson / Caddy Williams and David Irons. He's huge and a power guy. Not big on technique more of a bruiser style player.
              And Artis Hicks is worthless. If we go O-line Duck is a guy I wouldn't mind seeing..
              ...but the longer this goes the more intreguing a Crosby becomes.

                eh , I think last year people were most pissed off at how many day 1 picks we gave up. With those value picks you can do more (trade up...or trade for "better" higher rounders next year ..which would've been this year) but to trade up to grab a couple of projects (which Cook and Jackson clearly are) then yeah, I think the fans had every right to be upset.

                Look at it this way, we could've very easily taken Mauirce Jones-Drew ...a guy who a TON of people thought was a late 1st early 2nd round talent.
                We at that point had basically the same RB crew we started the year with, and look what he did behind a good Oline in jax.
                Now last year we have Chester Taylor and MJD..then this yaer there's ZERO chance we would've taken Peterson.
                As solid a pick as Peterson was this year, ...part of that has to do with
                having such a horrible late 2nd day last year.
                Then we could've gone Quinn, Okoye, Anderson or one of the top tier WR's or have traded down without having that huge "oh my God who will be our playmakers" at RB.

                As for Robison , he's alright...a tad overhyped on message boards if you ask me..he's not real strong ,..not really fast and is a bit of a "workout warrior". He gives great effort on special teams and could potentially work
                his way up to be a good backup WILL.

                More picks this year is always more fun.

                  I'm expecting us to get an O-lineman in round 6 or 7.

                    Rufus not bad of a pick i mean he is worth a 6th round pick and he can help us in the LB core that isnt deep.

                          Not a fan of another OLB...but as long as we went this way I LOVE Alexander. He's a perfect fit for the cover 2 ..tampa 2. Great lean frame ..good hips and lateral movement in coverage...he's going to be solid.

                          I would've thought HB Blades or Brandon Siler an interior LB would've made more sense. EJ isn't proven there , Cirruci is a special teamer and we really have only OLB's moving over...we could still go ILB very easily with another pick. And by the looks of it, there should be great value there.

                          I'm wondernig why Duckworth hasn't gone.

                            For some odd reason coaches like taking two or more players from the same school... at the very least Alexander should be a good special teams player.

                              anyone else suprised to see Ben Patrick still on the board? Scott seemed somewhat high on him for awhile and I'm suprised to see him on the board still. I think he's great value for any team that gets him at this point. I would have liked to see us pick him in the 6th.
