    I don't know anything about any of these guys out of the 1st 3 rounds so i'll just stick with my "on the fence" vote. :toropalm:

    LOL.

    I liked it JUST because we went defense. AGAIN.

    I freaking love it. Now I want to see us go defense for the entire rest of the draft. Nothing but defense. D, D, D, D, D, D, D, D, ........

    On the fence. I like going to the safety position, but I am not a fan of Keo. While he is an effort guy, he is not physically gifted. He tops out as a ST/backup guy.

    EDIT- Again, typing too fast. I left the "h" off of his name. Shiloh Keo

    Wasn't that the guy Deion Sanders really liked during the drils in the combine?

    From what I've read about him he seems like a very physical player...More of a SS type...

    I think he will probably make his niche on special teams for us...

    Suspect he will make the team as a ST but don't see him starting.

    #1 he is a football player, kinda of the common theme in Wade Phillips first draft as defensive coordinator. He will do what he's told when he's told not questions asked.

    Shiloh Keo is a good football player. I like this pick.

    He doesn't have great measurables but he's an effort guy.

    For me anything 5th round and beyond is almost mandatory "on the fence" until training camp starts. He seems to know where the football is going to be and that's a good sign.

    On a completely different thought, I'm beginning to think we'll never get rid of Casey Studdard. :rake:

    Definitely a special teams and SS pickup. I thought Jerrell Powe would go here for sure. If you're not starting in the secondary your football life is in danger for the Texans next year with all these picks.

    Profootball weekly report:

    Positives: Thickly built with natural mass — bench-pressed 225 pounds 24 times at the Combine. Drops downhill hard and craves contact. Understands run fits and is a solid tackler. Surprisingly good feet and short-area quickness — tested the best of any safety in the short shuttle (3.9 seconds) and 3-cone drill (6.55 seconds) at the Combine. Intense competitor. Good football temperament. Football-smart. Has a special-teams coverage mentality and good run strength.

    Negatives: Has short arms and does not have a cut physique — carrying a soft midsection and nearly 20 percent body fat, easily the highest of any defensive back at the Combine. Tight-hipped with below-average speed and suddenness. Limited range and cover skills. Does not intimidate physically. Average leaping ability. Instincts and diagnostic skills are just average — freelances too much, takes chances and gives up some big plays. Has a sense of entitlement that could rub some people the wrong way.

    Summary: Tightly wound, physical, intense downhill safety best utilized as an extra linebacker in the box. Is not as athletic or as well-conditioned as Ravens ’08 third-rounder Tom Zbikowski but similarly projects as an effective run defender and core special-teams player.

    NFL projection: Fourth- to fifth-round pick.

    From mojo's post:

    WTH? WOW!

    Willing to dive at blockers' legs and free up other tacklers to make the play.

    That's awesomeness. Just submarine a blocker on a sweep/toss or on a screen pass, taking the blocker out of the picture, and letting others come in and nab the carrier.

    I luv it.

    True, but do you see him as a player with starting potential? I know this late in the draft you dont try for home runs every pick, but we have needs at other positions. In my eyes, Keo tops out as a backup and ST guy. I dont dislike the pick, but I dont particularly like it either.

    Gomes really?

    Didn't think he would go this early, more of a safety/LB tweener.

    Prefer Hagg.

    Go Big Red anyway!

    I would say that almost every starter on offense is safe and has a job.

    Nobody on defense is safe. Maybe Mario is, that'd be an exception I guess.

    So many picks on defense. Wow.
