    Wow, did anyone see Sportscenter just now? They asked Kiper who performed the best at the senior bowl, and he said that D'Brick completely dominated Kiwi, solidfying his pick at #4 and moving Kiwi down to the bottom of Round 1. He said that his pass blocking was absolutely superb, and said that if not for the Young-Leinart-Bush triumverate, D'Brick could be one of the highest drafted OLs ever.

    I hope Kiwi drops to our #33 pick (doubtful). If we could trade down and get D'Brick and Kiwi in the first couple rounds...well, I would be very happy with the first 2 rounds atleast.

    Well, if multiple people claim that a first round tackle dominates a fist round DE, it would seem that the OL is probably a pretty good blue-chip pick

    Heck, if Dumerville drops to #33 I'll be happy. I've been hearing good things. Kiwi would be straight up amazing if he drops that far.

    I would love it if we could get D'Brick at 4 after a trade, then with our 33 pick up Davin Joseph and with the 37 (Jets) go after Abdul Hodge, MLB from Iowa. That leaves us with Greenwood and Wong at OLB and Hodge in the middle. We would then have 3 3rd round picks from the trade down, we could trade up to the second with 2 of our 3rds and pick up a pass rusher (Kiwi, Dummerville, etc...)

    I just got through reading the practice report on D'brick for yesterday and it said while D'brick was awsome in pass protection he wasn't very good in run blocking and didn't show the aggression one needs to be a great run blocker in the NFL. However, they did say that Coledge showed very good blocking skills. If any of you want to confirm this just go to the link on page 2 that is entitled Senior Bowl.
