    Nice Job!

    Jonathan Martin seems to be one of the most polarizing figures in the draft. For a guy who is a model citizen that is not all that common. Some draft gurus like Thomas Cooper think he is the second best tackle in the draft and a much more natural left tackle prospect than Reiff who is a better run blocker but has shorter arms. Cooper believes Martin makes everything look easier than it is and he is a very natural player. Other folks are beginning to talk about Martin as a second or third round talent who has big holes in his game and does not have enough strength and toughness to succeed at the pro level. I believe that this is the sort of player that can make huge strides in the weight room and Kugler can iron out his technique issues. I think he has very good athleticism and is a very smart and athletic tackle. I'd be quite pleased with the pick. The Bengals take Kirkpatrick and Barron. Ouch! Fleener reunites with Harbaugh, Eagles take a prospect based on potential...Floyd and Fitzgerald wow - now that is a red zone threat and run blocking duo...Upshaw to the Jets is about right...Stephen Hill and Andre Johnson!...Nick Perry is a perfect fit in New England with their need for pass rushers and their hybrid D. Well done.

    I do have one criticism and it is a minor one. So minor in fact that it has nothing to do with the body of your post. It has to do with the mock in your signature. I was wondering if you could do me a favor and take Blake Gideon off and replace him. I watched several Longhorns games the last few years. And he was an abysmal FS on a terrible defense. He hits hard and would be a good special teamer, but he gives up so many big plays that I don't know if I could bear to see him in the black & gold (even as a reserve). He makes me cringe. As Barkley would say, "he's turrible." I know this seems silly, but I don't want his name anywhere near talk of the Steelers and the draft. Of course, I won't really be upset if you do not change your mock. But, I'd feel better if you did.
