    no question to me, moulden looks to be our best pick out of the gates. he just looks really fast and comfortable. smart, well spoken kid as well. i expect to see good things out of him really fast. our draft looks like a draft done by a team with alot of confidence in it's coaches. lots of physical talent with room to grow. i see guys like Adibi , Okam and Slaton being coached up pretty quickly whereas guys like Brown or Barber needing a bit more help. Brown, specifically because he's only played the position for one year. I expect him to be up to speed quick but perhaps slower than some of the other OT's taken in the first round. I still don't know that I see him as a game one starter. This is all based on virtually nothing but a gut feeling by the way.

    That's no small feeling!!!

    By the way, Brown played two years at RT, so it's a little disingenuous to suggest he only has one season of experience. He's played both tackle positions and started for the past three seasons. He may be a little rough but he doesn't lack experience.

    The way I see it is, if guys like Adibi or Slaton come in and make an impact that helps us become a playoff team, I have no problem with the others coming along in their second year to make us an actual contender.

    i even thought about specifying LEFT tackle, i knew somebody would call me on it.

    i should have known it would have been a body of such massive proportions.

    When it pertains to Brown I don't see it being a year long project where he may be a factor next season. I'm feeling like it may be a few weeks into the season. But I wont be the least bit surprised if he's in there week 1 when we thump the Steelers.

    I'm bumping this thread because by this time next week, we'll finally get to see what our new "toys" look like. I just re-watched the highlights and I'm excited about this draft class...especially Slaton and Okam. If they can do what they were drafted to do, improve the run and stop the run, we could have a very nice year.

    Adibi has potential if he can put on a few pounds and maintain the speed.

    Moulden looks like a steal where we got him. I'm expecting big things from him.

    Haven't been real high on Slaton but, I see we share a birthday, so he's moving up my depth chart!

    Okam looks like he's got the physical tools, but so does TJ. Can he keep his motor running all game, every week?
