    What do you think about the Broncos taking the a DT with the 36 pick and a TE with the 46 pick?

    I really hope that the Lions have a terrible rest of the draft because they did get better if Farely lives up to the hype and might have created one of if not the best D line in the NFL.

    Also how about the Falcons giving up so much for Julio Jones.
    Cards might get Bulger in free agency. Don't think they're going to draft a qb, not early anyways. I think they're looking for a vet.

    Broncos are not good at drafting, but at least they addressed their awful D line. Tight end might have been silly considering they have Tim Tebow as their quarterback.

    Lions had a dominant D line last year. Now it is just SCARY.

    Falcons feel they are a player or two away(WR and Pass rusher) They addressed one need. A team as solid as they will won't have an opportunity to draft someone that good so they saw their chance and took it. It is DEFINITELY a steep price but the NFL is a here and now league. I like the aggressive move we'll see if it pays off.

    Good points. Remember that the Broncos have a new coach and President so I think the draft is going to be a strong point for them for awhile. The Cards might get Bulger but does that really equal big wins or just more competitive. If the Niners get Kolb I think they take the division. I agree with marshal faulk when he said the Seahawks will have a tough draft because of where they are picking, it will be hard for them to fill all the holes tehy need to.

    Do you think Tebow is going to TE, I dont I think the Broncos take the kid from ND.

    Hasselbeck, Bulger, or Kevin Kolb are all significantly better options than Dalton, Stanzi, or Mallet.

    Plus if they suck this year they can just tank the end of the year and try and set themselves up for Andrew Luck

    Tim Tebow wasnt drafted to be a TE. They tanked an entire draft for the guy to play him at QB so they have to continue to play him there.

    I must have miunderstood your previous post about drafting a TE when they have Tebow would be a mistake.

    The Bears finished off day two strong Taking Paea in the second and Safety Conte in the third addressing their needs on D. Cicnci Takes Dalton Possibly opening up another QB for trade. The Cards would be blessed to Get Palmer. The Broncos took a Linebacker which they really did not need, I thought they would take a DT.

    Some truely odd drafts facts.........

    North Carolina and USC each had nine players drafted, tied for the most of any school.
    Miami had eight, Nebraska seven, and Clemson, Georgia, Iowa and LSU had six each.

    None of those eight schools played in a BCS bowl, and Clemson and Georgia finished with losing records.

    Oregon, which lost in the national championship game, had one player drafted. Auburn, which won the national title, had four. That means the BCS title game had five draftees -- the fewest of any of the BCS bowls.

    Micheal Jasper is the first player drafted from Bethel (Tenn.), an NAIA school located in McKenzie, Tenn., a town of about 5,300 in northwest Tennessee. Jasper, from the Nashville suburb of Mt. Juliet, was drafted as a defensive tackle by Buffalo after playing guard at 440 pounds last fall.

    There were 56 underclassmen -- a record high -- who declared for the draft. A lot of them are having second thoughts right about now. Thirteen weren't drafted at all.....................and are now ineligible for future college ball

    Auburn WR Darvin Adams, Southern Miss WR DeAndre Brown, Wisconsin RB John Clay, Georgia Tech OT Nick Claytor, Virginia Tech RB Darren Evans, South Carolina WR Tori Gurley, Florida FS Will Hill, Pitt FB Henry Hynoski, Stanford LB Thomas Keiser, Oregon DB Javes Lewis, Virginia DE Zane Parr, Utah DT Sealver Siliga and Georgia Tech S Jerrard Tarrant
