    SI also had a great article on Amobi in this last issue. I'm so glad he's a part of this organization.

    I was looking at everybody else, and the top 5 can go in any order IMO.

    Looks like Okoye was the right pick. I'm just glad I'm not running the team. I would have probably have taken Revis or Willis.

    Nice, but its still awfully early. I'd like to see how they'd grade 2006 right now compared to this time last year.

    Willis is turning out to be a pretty solid LB. I don't know if all the contract monkey shines with Revis would've made him worth it though.

    He's had a fast start - maybe for the same reason he had so much success at a young age on and off the field. The mental aspects of competition, hard work, and expectations of success have carried through to the pro level.

    TBH Vinny, Willis is looking great out in SF(as I am sure you know) and Revis basically shutdown Moss when the Pats played the Jets. I think we would have been fine with any of the three. I had us taking him on my mock though and was thrilled that we took him. I am even happier now that he has played well.
