I sort of wanted to see Taylor Heinecke get the opportunity to be the primary backup. Not a big deal I guess.

him getting hurt last summer might have set him back enough that he might not catch on with the team anymore, its too bad

the lesson to learn is to not kick down glass doors i guess

Draft day, not quite as exciting without a 1st round pick.

Robinson is gone. Lamp is the highest rated OL left and I like Cook a lot, either would make a lot of sense.

i like it, some think he's the best rb in the draft and it takes the pressure off murray to have to be the guy who replaces ap

hopefully some of these other interior lineman (on bother sides of the ball) we like fall to the third

Jaleel Johnson DT and Ben Gideon LB. I like the Johnson pick, I don't know about Gideon.
