I'm a little concerned that OB/Smith aren't convinced that Mallet is worth our 2nd. If he's ready to start in the NFL, surely he's worth our 2nd. Maybe they've got a good feel for the situation & are just bending Belichick over a little.

But I'm tired of making excuses for our QBs lack of arm strength, & trying to argue that good enough is good enough.

Yeah, I'll take smart over strong arm any day, but if at all possible I'd like both. Matt Schaub was smart. Matt Schaub could read defenses. Matt Schaub made good decisions with the ball.

I wish Matt Schaub could extend plays, maybe that's what a Bridgewater or Manziel would get you in respect to Schaub, but I'm not sold that either can be a smart as Schaub. Sure... Bridgewater read defenses at Louisville.. pssh.....

I'm not so sure deciphering the Ohio Bobcats defense prepared him for the NFL.

Still, if NFL teams respected Schaub's arm, maybe we'd have seen a little less enthusiasm on the blitzes... maybe we'd have seen Schaub get "all day" in the pocket.

Louis Nix has drawn comparisons to a young Casey Hampton and Vince Wilfork. He makes too much sense at pick #33 tonight. I'm just worried he seems like too much of a perfect fit with the Texans that they'll overthink it and end up passing on him. When something is too good to be true it probably is. I hope Rick Smith knows how awesome Louis Nix was at Notre Dame. I'm shocked he didn't go in the first round.

Bring on the Clown!

I don't think that Clowney is a perfect fit for Crennel's defense, but if we're selecting him then I trust that he will be used correctly. I have said all along that I think he is the most physically gifted athlete in the draft.

Wayyy too much in the injuries there for me to feel comfortable taking Nix.

I'm hoping Carr or Marqise Lee.
