These recent selections have been quite good. You guys are definitely getting some of the best players remaining, and at likely great draft value.
Thanks man, I appreciate the positive feedback. As with Barrett Jones, I felt that Bailey checked off all my personal K.P.I.'s for an offensive lineman:
A) starter since freshman year (45+ game starter over four seasons);
B) highest level of competition (SEC);
C) above-average measureables
Because he was an early entrant offensive lineman, I suspect that he's very underrated by the national media at this point. My guess is that he's no later than a 3rd rounder in April.
