    On a different note: Where are Snoop Dogg and all the #firetoddhaley types, talking incessantly about Haley.

    I'm not a buyer on Holliman. I just can't imagine how a guy with 14 picks, wins the Thorpe Award, falls all the way to the 7th round of the draft. It just does not make sense, and makes me think...

    Who's your favorite pick?

    Given the draft value, who was your favorite pick?

    I don't know if it is my favorite, but the kid from the U is very interesting. Some of the things I've read say he can be suited to 3-4 DE. At...

    This sort of thing can EASILY be a blessing in disguise. A RB playing 16 games can easily be worn down by the time the playoffs roll around.

    More guys like him have flopped, then have flourished. He is in-line with Steeler tradition: productive in college, team captain type.

    I don't know specific guys... I will say that we need to strictly go BPA in Round 3. In other words, DON'T reach for need (e.g. CB). We want a guy who can immediately contribute.

    I know I've had many more... one that sticks out (because we ended up picking him) was Earl Holmes. I was touting Earl Holmes (based on draft guides only) as a future stud. Then the Steelers actually...

    My point is to really find out how talented these guys are. Because if Jarvis Jones had these, he'd have been a 4th round pick. But I'd still have Aldon Smith on my team, with all the crap he's done....

    I found it interesting (watching the ESPN Mock Draft show yesterday), how Mayock and Polian dismissed the Jarvis Jones pick (already) as a miss by the team.

    Who's transgressions do you tend to mitigate. And, how would Peters (the UW CB) fit into that mix. Peters is purported to...

    I'd take that bet easy.
    Jones may end up being a solid, #2 CB. At best. But he won't be anything more. CB, you don't need to be cerebral.

    Dupree is a bust waiting to happen. I think the leading (reasonable) contender is Kevin Johnson.
