    I really like Mankins too. I actually traded up to get him in the 2nd Round for the Bills so he could play OG for them. I asked some of the posters at the Bills' message board what they thought were the most pressing needs for the team. They all said that fixing the interior of the line was the top priority. They were happy with the center and the tackles, but the OGs needed work. Then they listed a playmaking CB, or another WR threat as their 2nd and 3rd most pressing needs. There are other guards ranked higher than him like Brown or Baas, but Mankins seems like an ideal fit for OG in the NFL. He would be great pulling in front of the RB on a counter, and his great feet should serve him well in the interior. I really liked Mathis too out of Alabama, but Mankins is definately one of my favorite players in the draft.

    here is one that I find interesting:

    He is a bit underweight for a NT, but like they said, since he has very little body fat he has room to add weight.

    for some reason this cracks me up
    and I guess it is because when things like this happen, most sites don't mention anything, they just change it.

    as much as I dislike Bill Walton's announcing.. this is something I imagine him saying.
    :heh:

    Yeah I've watched him play in a few games. I really liked what I saw of him, but you could tell he had some wear and tear on him in some of those games. Also, he's like 25 or 26 though I think because he took off some time for minor league ball or something of that nature. He is very talented though, but he is a work in progress like many other RBs.

    I watched him play in one of the All-Star games, and he looked really good. All I can say is that I was impressed.

    A few guys I didn't see listed on that site that are slipping per Mel Kiper are

    Ernest Shazor, who he feels is likely a 4th round pick
    Channing Crowder, who he feels has slipped to the 3rd or 4th round
    and Heath Miller, who hasn't shown much progress after groin surgery...
