    Discuss.......



    Good value and nice depth behind Myers, but I feel we have some NEEDS that we either are ignoring or feel they aren't actually needs.....Still need a better wr IMO and a NT wouldn't hurt....

    Nice to see them adding depth and using BPA on their boards. I think that's fantastic. As a fan, I know we hate it.

    As a pick? eh. I love the flashy in the 4th, where is my Kubiak TE pick?! ;)

    I like it. Not an exciting pick, but provides depth for the line. Good value as well.

    Doesn't seem to really fill a significant need, but it's hard to have too much depth in the O-line.

    Started 48 games at Center in the SEC. Plays with a nasty treak. He made the line calls and has a lot of experience. He's consistent and tough. Many expect he could start right away for many teams. 29 reps at he combine.

    Maybe Brooks goes to RT and Jones goes to G (while we have Chris Myers, then Jones becomes our C).

    Fire Smith, fire Kubiak, only let Wade pick.

    Think I covered all the bases here.

    From what I'm reading, he seems to be a decent 4th round pick. I like that we've got two O linemen so far. Now we can go after the defensive backfield and another WR. And a QB in there someplace. :)

    Good value, possibly an upgrade over Wade Smith at LG? In any case, Caldwell is done-skies lol....

    This was a guy the Titans fans wanted LOL. NFL.com has him with a 78.2 rating and was their second highest rated center in the draft. I'm glad they are solidifying O-Line depth.

    Yep, one of those as well. We don't have a 7th round pick now, so they'll have to use the 5th or 6th to pick one up. I really don't think Smithiak will drafft a kicker in the 4th round.

    Really like this pick. I'm guessing he was Texans highest rated C with Konz's injury concerns.

    If Myers went down this year, we'd be sunk. Now we have a natural C to step in, groom.

    Surprised they passed on Massie for a center.

    No, but hopefully a 6th on one....that way we ensure a great kicker and not risk signing just anyone with a leg in the free agency that will ensue later tonight

    I like this pick. I've been worried more about the interior of the line than the tackle position, although I did expect them to draft a tackle. But I think they like Newton and Butler.

    This puts our younger guys on notice and hopefully starts some competition in the middle of our line between Caldwell, Smith, Brooks, and Jones.

    He's a scrappy guy and that was probably Brisiel's best feature.
