    Houston, again.
    Pretty fair call on the listing, but the first thing that jumped out to me is that by listing them alphabeticaly rather than how they should be picked or for who's best rated, it can't come back to bite him later when the draft falls differently than what he said. I guess he just doesn't step out very far on the limb.

    If you click in the link he lists 3 wild cards who may sneak in to the top 32. He brings up Seth Wand's name.

    The one thing I am interested to see is how the DE's shake out. There doesn't seem to be a consensus number 1, and there are probably three who are in competition for that spot. The other thing is which one of these guys will play 3-4 and which will play 4-3? Draft day will definitely be interesting.

    And they are...?

    I've got a few that I can't see in the 1st:

    Channing Crowder - Bad knees, bad attitude, worse police blotter.

    Marcus Johnson & Chris Spencer - Brandt has these two Rebels at the wrong positions, IMO. Johnson doesn't have the quickness to play tackle, & Spencer struggles with the shotgun snap. I think they're mid 2nd-early 3rd guards.

    Corey Webster - Didn't have a good senior season and has been passed by in the off season by workout warriors like Fabian Washington, Justin Miller, & Bryant McFadden. Webster is one of the rare guys who would have been better off coming out as a junior.

    Did any of you guys hear Lance Zerline go off on Brandt recently on the radio? He also repeated the tirade on his email. Seems he thought Brandt was let's say "overly enthusiastic" about Benson. Zerline claimed Brandt was too close to Mack Brown @ UT & was not sticking to "just the facts, ma'am."
