Wait a minute, the Pats have Tavon Wilson and Devin McCourty already.

I do like Cyprien though, again, in the second round for more value.

Im going to go with Kawann Short DT Purdue. Fills a big hole in the middle with Cody being gone. The other serious consideration was K St. OLB Arthur Brown.
I really think this is the best choice other than trading down. Since the talent level is all pretty equal at this point you have to consider that WR position still has plenty of comparable talent to take later in the draft. LB should have solid but not spectacular choices still a available as late as the 4th round. We always find OL guys later in the draft that are adequate. DL after Short and Hankins is a big drop in talent.

It was a tough decision .... but if you look at the WR's from here to the 3rd round , none of them seperated themselves I think value can be had at the position later with a more polished player.

Exactly my thinking on the whole mess .... It boiled down to Short being the best DT available at a thin position while WR and LB are rather deep positions.

Agree, but I think I'll still go with Bob and Earl.

At least Hunter has #1 potential.

Wow some interesting thoughts
What beer am I buying
Budlight? XX? Siner? Blue moon?

I think green bay will take Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
I think he would fit well on the end for GB

I can't believe we took Short! I'd rather Eifert. If the board turns out like that we are fudged.
I would have even rather reached on Elam or Hunter than Short
I feel NT is so deep with J. Williams, Jenkins, B. Williams just to name a few.

I have a hard time not seeing the texans add a offensive weapon
I think McNair as well as Kube/Smith know that they have neglected the offense in the draft and FA over the years. I think they will stay true to there open media comments and go for speed and skill on the offensive side.

No legit WR left at 27, hunter is a reach. Just take Eifert and get Williams, Or Best available WR left if there is a good one left. I truly feel Eifert can be one of the best TE in the NFL in Houston
He is as dynamic as they come.
A former WR, he is a dangerous TE. They guy to literally stretch the middle and be a big threat n the Redzone with we struggle to do if passing.
Open up huge holes for Arian Foster weather taking LBers with him in pass coverage or blocking the edge for Arian to run around.

I think Eifert along a legit WR2 could take the offense too new heights even with Schaub's limitations

I would have traded up/down. Forget the fact that trades are not allowed. A REAL GM would have found a way.

Man, I am in draft day form. I hope I don't peak too early.

There is something about Hunter that just don't seem right. He looks clumsy at times. It looks like his legs get tangled up. His legs look too long. I can see him having knee issues in the future. He reminds me of a WR that used to play for the Vikings opposite of Carter. Can't remember his name.

Hunter just isn't that much better than a lot of the WR's left.

I haven't seen any of Short, so I have no opinion of him. If he can play NT effectively, I think it is a good pick.

Rock N Randy's surprise pick of TE looks plausible here with Eifert being the best TE in the draft .... but I just cant seem to pull the trigger.
Under this scenario I think a trade down would be optimal ...
Da'Rick Rodgers or Hunter, Maybe Short

Are you backing off Rodgers?

I was looking at Jones from UCLA. Hankins, and Jesse Williams. I just think Cyprien is the better player. It seemed like the Belichick thing to do. Just take the guy you like and worry about how they fit on the field later.

I need to watch some more of him; what I saw didn't leave much impression on me either way.

@RNR ; Blue Moon is pretty good, but I'll take Shriner.

That was one of the issues for me with Hunter - along with being so damn skinny and he doesnt really have the frame to add much to it. Yeah , he has the length and measurables .... but I dont think he will be what we are looking for opposite AJ.

True. McCourty was moved back with Chung being injured and never got back to form.

And teams play plenty of nickel and any of those three safeties can come down to cover the slot or the TE or even blitz.
