What I meant by "went as expected" was that I really didnt want to make the pick @ 27 , much rather would have traded out of the selection and at 57 I got my targeted player in Rogers.
Looking at the picks from 20-60 I really didnt see much drop off in talent .....
Had I not taken Short , It would have been interesting to see how long he lasted beyond that point.

In hindsight , If I had that #27 pick to make again , I would likely go with an OT there , and keep my choices the same from 57 to #124.
There were a couple NT/DT guy's available beyond that point of the draft that I think could be solid contributors. The OT's just went much quicker than I expected .....
Really looking forward to the actual draft to see if that holds true .... or if we just over value the position because its a need ....kinda like the way WR's went in this draft exercise while we allowed some prospects at other positions to really drop a few rounds.
