It only took 7 years for me. You've heard me bitch about the defense longer than anyone else in here. Seems I've been screaming since the ESPN days if I remember correctly. Anyways we finally did what I wanted so I am extremely happy and I finally won't sound like a broken record next year crabbing about drafting defense. I'll quickly have to make a new album before next season, :wink: :lol:

I think so. One columnist described them as "hitting every fairway". Solid analogy.


All they need to do is take a solid safety in the 4th round and they'll be set.


I agree. I will make one alternate provision though. If Westbrook is still sitting there...


Switzer looks like a Cole Beasley successor...

I don't know about "successor"... but he and Beasley are going to create havoc with their route running. And - should get Dez plenty of single coverage.

You picked up a "Taco" lol. He's gonna get eaten. :P

Awuzie is a solid pick tho. Thought the Hawks might go for him.

They reached for Taco :lol: , but I don't mind. As much as they needed players in the secondary, they needed to solidify the D-line even more. Taco reminds me of Greg Ellis, and if he is anywhere near that level, then he was a good pick.

And they were still able to add some quality players for the secondary with Awuzie, Lewis, and Woods.

All together, it was a good 3 days for Dallas.

i like the vikings draft, started out real well (on friday), nothing spectacular about what they got done on saturday but i wouldn't say they blew it

interesting they didn't take any fliers on an offensive tackle late but there you go i guess

The Hawks focused on getting lineman & DB's. They needed to improve upfont & did so with D-line & O-line picks. They also needed DB depth. They accomplished both. Therefore, I'm pretty satisfied with this draft.

Selecting lineman? Why wouldn't I like it? It's Smash mouth football.

How is that defense coming along, btw?

Panthers got themselves a gem. Still cant believe he went undrafted. Dude is going to learn so much being around the likes of Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis...couldn't have landed in a better situation.

This one was an absolute shock to me. When I saw that we picked him up as an UDFA I coudn't believe it, I thought he was picked up in the 5th or 6th round. Really excited to get him, I love that kid's game.

I want to thank the Jaguars for picking up my cousin Kenneth Walker III out of UCLA. If he follows my advice keeps his head down and just works you guys have a tremendous speed threat with a chip on his shoulder. Capable of KR, PR, deep threats, playing the slot, and a few rushes as a RB.

I'm pretty happy with the Chargers draft. A stud WR for Rivers...if Allen is healthy they will have a great WR duo. Tyrell Williams was good and Hunter Henry and still have Gates providing.

Then three OL should help with both the running game and keeping Rivers healthy.
