    Strengths:
    Very good size and bulk with long arms...A terrific natural athlete...Excellent timed speed with a burst to close...Has quick feet...Able to flip his hips and run with just about anyone...Is very self-assured with a short memory...Offers some versatility.

    Weaknesses:
    Not as physical as he should be...Too aggressive at times and can be fooled...He lacks great awareness...Average hands and ball skills...Does not get a very good jam at the line...Too confident and undisciplined...Doesn't play to his measurables.

    Notes:
    Began his college career at Toledo ('04) where he saw action in 13 games at both corner and safety as a freshman...Transferred down a level in '05 looking for more playing time...Also ran track at EKU...A bit of a Workout Warrior who does not play as well as he tests..An intriguing small school sleeper with ideal triangle numbers.

    Antwaun Molden

    Wish we would've gotten Tyvon Branch instead. He seems like a more physical and better talent at CB.

    Ugh.

    ESPN.com/Scout says Molden would be a great value in the 7th Round.

    Molden's a former track star. Looking forward to Ray Rhodes coaching hi up.

    Pretty good player - saw this video the other day - he looks fast and has a huge jump - looks like he's a heckuva player.


    Looks like he was a heckuva pick who might have gone yesterday if more CBs had gone....

    I rarely worry to much about ESPN's draft ratings. They can be VERY weird.

    7th round for this guy is pretty off, IMO.

    Hope you're right, Hail Schaub.

    I'm personally not anywhere close to a draft expert, but I hate the wailing and gnashing of teeth that goes on around here when we don't pick the guy that the internet coaches think is the "right guy."

    Sometimes it's not even the "right" guy - people get ticked if you don't take a "sexy" pick.

    I really like this pick. I'm loving the draft so far though. Now to take a DE with our next selection. Who? Either Tommy Blake or Darrell Robertson.

    The NFLDRAFTCOUNTDOWN site has him as a 2nd or 3rd rounder.
    At 6'-6'1" and 'bout 200 with sub 4.4 speed, he's got the measureables
    as an outstanding athletic so looks like a man type, on paper atleast.

    FWIW - aside from the video I found from Draftguys, NFLDraftCountdown.com, as site I follow that is pretty good, had Molden as one of the best remaining available players, tho admittedly there were some CBs they liked more. They had him ranked 13th CB overall in their rankings and (ahead of Terrell Thomas out of USC who went last round) and graded him as a round 2 or 3 prospect.

    Mel Kiper is especially well known for not even watching tape anymore and I used to like Todd McShay and Scouts Inc, but they have increasingly been off the mark on some of their breakdowns. IMO.

    So I am not worried. At this point, it';s clearly a guy they liked and good value here IMO.

    Of course, we won't really know until he hits the field.

    Kiper just said he liked this pick. Said he is raw but in a couple of years he could be a great pick. Said he is very athletic

    Kiper liked the pick. Said Molden has a lot of potential, but will take a year or two to develop.
