Hey guys, I'm a Packer fan but I just wanted to congratulate you guys on another good draft. I saw that you guys are getting slammed by the media, but I really think you came out of it with the best draft in the division. With the Lions and Vikings running the Tampa-2, I think that Olsen should help out a lot in beating their defenses. Aside from that, I know that you're going to love Dan Bazuin.
I follow the MAC pretty closely (last year I was the only person on the planet who thought that Greg Jennings and Tony Scheffler were studs, both top-3 at their positions in my rankings) and I have to say, Dan Bazuin is going to be a monster in a few years. Earlier in the season he absolutely dominated the University of Michigan. Here's a play-by-play breakdown of the UM offense vs. CMU defense:
I just thought that you guys might be interested in that, because I know that most of you don't follow MAC football and probably don't know much about the guy.The writer was a Michigan fan and he had some great one-liners, at one point comparing Bazuin to Lawrence Taylor. Michigan couldn't block the guy. He even got Jake Long a few times.
I think that if it weren't for issues in his personal life, he would have been a first-rounder. He needs to add some strength, which I'm sure Chicago's Strength & Conditioning program will take care of. Aside from that, if he works hard and studies film (he has occassional mental mistakes which will be erradicated by film study) I really think that he can be a Pro Bowl player. I see Aaron Kampan, with more athletic ability (of course, nobody in the NFL works harder than Kampan, so don't go expecting any 15 sack seasons ;)).
