You dont think much of Marlin Jackson?

1. Being a team player he switched to safety his junior year.
2. Cornerbacks are so hard to judge because you usually only see them when they do something bad. When a CB is doing his job...You dont even notice because the ball doesnt go that direction.

Watching Jackson for 4 years I am very impressed. I expect his game to translate very well to the pros...And extremely physical corner with good size.

Ya I like Marlin too, he was the top rated corner a few years ago untill his troubles... I would of rather see Colts take Crowder.

I was speaking of their draft as a whole, not just the first round...FWIW, I like Jackson, but I don't like their other picks...I have followed this draft rather closely, and I have never heard of Kelvin Hayden, who they used with their 2nd rounder, and I'm not really that high on Sweet Pea Burns...

GreenBay, NO, Houston, and Oakland. I think Oakland is right on the edge though if those speed corners turn out well they could be dangerous, plus they grabbed a good QB in the third.

I think most people would agree that NO probably could have done more. I didn't really pay attention to Buffalo but I haven't seen anyone really talk up their choices so far, which possibly puts them in there with NO...

I can't really say these were the worst drafts because you never really know how these guys will pan out.

But as far as most boring drafts...in no particular order:

Seattle
Denver
New England

can you explain why some of these teams had bad drafts. i for one that that buffalo did well with what they had. roscoe is going to play in the slot were he can be the most effective in the nfl. everett is a project but might have the most upside of tight ends in the draft. there defense is very good and they provided their new qb with some more help in the passing game.

Seattle by far. They need defense, so they take Spencer in the first when he would have been there in the second. Then they take Tatupu in the second in a gigantic reach.

Default TJ a reach

Johnson was a reach, I would have loved for the Texans to go up and get Mike Williams.

Morency doesn't do it for me.

Agreed.

I thought the Bills did pretty well (not great but certainly not bad) given what they had.

New Orleans did okay as well. Jamaal Brown will anchor the right side of their OL for years and Josh Bullocks was the FS I wanted in Dallas.

No bones about it though, Seattle's sucked. Greene was their best pick but they just signed Hasselback to a long, big money contract.
