They still have a pretty good TE in Cross on the board.

They have to be better than the 49ers.

If I had been here for the first pick I probably would have passed on Rogers.
Mike Nugent was my guy from day one.

Can't go wrong with the Nuge. Should've taken him #1 overall.

I hear he is rated higher than Kaeding from last season. Kaeding went in the 3rd round.

Yeah that's not a surprise because Nugent has been very impressive in college. He's an "athletic" kicker kind of in the mold of a David Akers or Adam Vinatierri. I remember a piece on College Gameday talking about how he was a popular guy on the Ohio State team because he often ran plays as a WR or DB in practice to fill in for other guys after finishing up special teams practice. I still have a hard time imagining him going in the 2nd round, but if a team needed a kicker bad enough I'm sure it is a possibility.
On a side note there's also a kicker out of Ole Miss, his name escapes me at the moment, that won the Groza award last year, and I believe he's in the draft too. However, I haven't seen what round he's scheduled to go in, or if he's expected to be a rookie free agent. So he's another option for teams looking for a good kicker.

Jonathan Nichols. He was better last year, but is still pretty good.

That's him. Yeah there was some talk about him playing with a broken toe or something like that this year. I think that's why he had such an off year this past season.

Exactly the reason I was going to pick him up late in the third, and be a 'genius'. Guess I should've brought out my 'genius' thinking cap in the 2nd Round. Curse you ArlingtonTexan!

I listed a few backs I like in the 3rd round in another thread but left Fason out because I can't see how he falls there. He has a nice blend of speed and power and is a first round type back in some years.

I liked him as well as any of the 1st Round backs, and in some cases better. With the abundance of talent at RB I think it's possible for him to slip as far as the 3rd, but definately not probable. If he's not gone by the end of the 2nd Round in April you can color me surprised.

Fason came within a hair of being my pick for the Eagles, along with Barber, who is still on the board. I went with Shelton because of size and it gives the Eagles a different look. But let me tell you, I had a really hard time deciding with of the three I was going to take. I think all three will be really good pro backs.

There is going to be a ton of backs taken on the first day this year. Mark my words.

Looks like Odell was already off the board. Looks like Patterson was definately the right decision then.

LoL...I checked the prospect list and his name wasn't crossed off, so I assumed he was still on the board, but we all know what happens when you assume...

1) Vinny Texans (Seahawks) - David Baas, C/OG, Michigan
2a) Vinny Texans (Titans) - Chris Canty, DE Virginia
2b) Vinny Texans - Demarcus Ware LB, Troy State
3) Vinny Texans (Dal) - Luis Castillo, DT, Northwestern

Well, my first day selections are done with this pick. Luis Castillo could be the best candidate to play NT in this draft although personally, I'm not totally sold on him so I go with a bit of broad consensus and the fact that he is creeping into the first rd of some mocks (in the first round at Ourlads) combined with the fact that he is the 4th player chosen in the draft so the fallout is a little more negligible if he doesn't pan out.

I really liked Ryan Moats (can you say Brian Westbrook?), Marion Barber, Wesly Britt, or Kevin Everett here but will trust others opinions over my own at this point. So my gamble and hope would be that one of those guys would be there for my virtual Texans in the 4th.

So, to sum it up, I took care of the interior Offensive line with a physical player who can match up with the Hainsworths, Hendersons, and Strouds in the middle of the field and not get pushed around. Baas has been known to play with fire; a real nasty streak. Injecting a bit of attitude into our passive offensive line will help out tremendously. With Castillo and Canty we have injected size, youth and talent into a line that was aging and becoming injury prone. Demarcus Ware will take Peek's place at situational pass-rusher and hopefully Peek will have the entire scheme down and play with enough smarts to start over the hard working, steady but not spectacular Wong at the ROLB. Hopefully Ware is good enough to start by year 2. It will be a nice problem to have.

The front 7 is beefed up, and our interior line is improved. A team can only go as far as the lines will let them go and our OT play will improve when we have an actual pocket for Carr to step into. It is nearly impossible to keep your body in between Carr and the player you are blocking when you don't know where Carr will be after 2 seconds. Most of Carrs sacks were a direct result of the pocket getting too much inside push and he had to flush to the outside where it is almost impossible to protect him. With the lines improved on both sides of the ball the Offensive skill guys will be able to do their jobs better and should really improve our defense over last years effort.
