I would say Xavier Adibi. This guy is a total monster who unquestionably has the potential to complement DeMeco quite nicely. A great pick, we always manage to pick up great players in the fourth.

See my best value pick thread. The great thing here is i'm very happy with our first 5 picks and think they can all contribute from the start. I'm not upset with Barber and Spinks, I just dont think they'll be contributors at the level of the first 5 picks. Hopefully Barber finds his niche on special teams and Spinks becomes the next Sage Rosenfels though!!!

I couldn't help myself. I voted for Brink. I just didn't want his confidence to take that knock from checking out his new teams website and seeing that nobody was pleased that they drafted him.

You go get some Alex Brink! You da' MAN!

I've never seen so much disapproval of a 7th round pick lol. You'd think that by picking him the entire draft was ruined according to some people lol.

Default Re: What draft pick are you most pleased with?

Maybe I'm the odd ball here but who really cares about the 7th round pick? TRJ is calling him by a different name already (Brink not Spinks - though he's going to need a knockout to get on the field). So they drafted a QB who might have potential - great that's what that pick is for. Not like they just randomly picked his name out a hat. Best of luck Brink.

Adibi. Always looked good in college. Hopefully he can transition to the pros. At minimum he should be a pretty good ST guy.

I'm really siked about Slaton, so I voted for him. I am really hoping that he will be the home run threat this offense has truly been missing. I can't wait to see him get in the open field on the first screen play he runs.

Default Re: What draft pick are you most pleased with?

Honestly, I'm not really all that stoked about any of them individually. So said, I think that Rick Smith and Kubiak did about the best they could given the picks that they had. They filled some holes, created some depth, and appear to have picked up some really good value with the picks that we did have.

It's not sexy but it looks like a winner. Solid, but unspectacular, draft.

Oh, and to answer the question, I'm going to say Brown. He may be a project, but we've wanted a round one LT since jump and we've got him now. That said, I'm going to put my vote where my mouth is and get behind that pick.

Xavier Adibi...

With Mario and Amobi screaming down on the QB (or soaking up the double teams), and that of Demeco and Xavier covering the middle and adding blitz pressure on the QB as well...I could go in and sub for Dunta and make a confortable living! Well, not really, but you know what I mean.

Funny... I wanted to go mostly defense in this year's draft, but the pick I am most pleased with is, Steve Slaton. As long as he used correctly (not as an every down back), he could be an added weapon fot the offense.

Default Re: What draft pick are you most pleased with?

I'm pleased with the first 5 picks, but I'd lean towards Slaton for thread sake. It's going to be nice seeing our RB's actually getting to the outside when they're supposed to. I've been imagining Slaton on 3rd down screens and mis-direction tosses ever since we drafted him. The guy's a burner and I enjoyed watching WV play the past couple years due to his abilities.

Default Re: What draft pick are you most pleased with?

I voted for Okam.

I'm pleased with all of them. But if Okam really does have a fire in him, he's going to make everyone on that defense better. It's going to be harder to block Amobi and Mario. We're going to improve in the run defense. Guards and centers are going to have more trouble getting to the second level to block Demeco and the other LB's.

He might not put up big individual numbers or anything but he could be a very important pick.

Okam.

Just ask Ray Lewis what a huge hole-plugging beast can do for a LB.

I'd say Adibi. He's going to help out ASAP I think. I also think getting him in the 4th was a steal.

But I also like the Okam and Slaton picks as well. Of course I like getting Duane, we need a LT, hopefully this is the last draft where half the board wants a LT.

Default Re: What draft pick are you most pleased with?

I choose Molden, bcause we needed another CB and if, as they have said, he can play like Dunta and Bennett and is not affraid to tackle and will support stopping the run, and I am excited. Being that he is tall and has some speed (4.39 at the combine) he will be able toto match up with the bigger receivers once he gets some exp. I just hope he plays as fast as in 40 time is.

Sorry Faggins but I hope this means you do not make the roster out of training camp.

I'm pleased with the first 5 picks, but I went with Adibi simply because to me he represented the best value. I really thought he would go mid 2nd to mid 3rd. But, I'm happy with all those guys. Now rounds 6 and especially 7......

I voted for Adibi. I had been watching this dude all last year & it just seemed like he was in on every play. 2nd i would have to say Brown b/c we've needed an LT for so long & our front office finally felt that it was something that had to be addressed so we can move to the next level on offense. It really just more of the fact that i got tired of the patchwork...... save for Spencer.
