i'll assume leaving devin hester off the special teamers list is a mistake, and i just don't get how anyone can think michael huff is a better CB prospect than safety.

He takes insider information from NFL scouts and management and correlates it to the draft board each year. His work isn’t so much his opinion as it is consensus opinion from insider sources around the league. Historically, his pre-draft information is top shelf.

Daniel Bullocks looks like an interesting prospect...I dont really see why he is listed as the #2 FS though. Im seeing alot of knocks against him, but he has some good positives too. Draftcountdown said he doesnt have much upside.

he has a twin brother who is currently playing in the NFL for the Saints. They took him in the second round last year. He has almost the same measurables and plays DB as well, so i decided to ask them what they thought of him.

They said he looked good, seems to have alot of potential, and had good instincts. Looked at his rookie stats, and he was no Dunta Robinson, but didnt look too bad.

I could see Bullocks as a possibility for us.. but I dunno that we would take him at #33. he could definatly be one of our picks in the 3rd though, if he slides that far.
