Who's doom? I haven't even seen anyone drafted by that name? Do I need to update my board?

Well, the Socolorado guy missed his pick in the FIRST round, which was also the last time he selected. I'm not sure we can count on him too much going forward. He already missed a pick just now, and he has another coming up.

Texans get their #1 and #2 targets on the board since the 4th round.

Me and Req debated about Akeem Spence vs Tony Jefferson back in the 4th round, and lucky for us we were able to get our top two guys.

Spence was ridiculous value towards the end of the 5th round. I thought he should have come into play starting around the Late 3rd. He's a good scheme fit at NT in Houston's one gap scheme. Extremely active and strong as an ox.

Flawless selection. Would have been a great selection a full round ago too.

Akeem Spence was the top player left on my overall board -- however, he didn't make any sense for Pittsburgh as he's too short to play end for us, and a bit too light (and short) to play NT in the 3-4. Had I been drafting for a 4-3 team, I would have snatched him up in the fourth round.

I debated on how good of a scheme fit he would be with the Texans, but after watching a lot of his defensive snaps @ draftbreakdown (which has excellent videos) what MUG said was reinforced. Had I kept with the Bengals, he was a guy I was targeting in the late 3rd round. Illinois had a lot of problems on defense due to change in coaches and neither him, Buchanon or any of the other players were really helped out at all. That is why both of those guys had * denotations next to their name. I feel those guys will both go much higher than they did in our mock because GMs and scouts will realize the **** show that ensued there this year with the Illini.

Req deserves full credit for scouting and suggesting Jefferson and Spence.

Really like the Gholston pick... even more after this weekend. He was 1 of a couple players on my radar for next round.

We think if he can get under Del Rio and get a better motor he could be a beast, he has all the tools to be a stud its just up to him to make that decision

Yay! The train is rollin' again. Lots of picks to discuss. Thoughts as follows:


Seattle

I like Marquess Wilson as a shrewd draft sleeper. I don't like him in the 5th Round, because he quit on his team, so there are concerns there. His production two years ago was elite though, so there is a lot of upside if his personality checks out. I had him targeted as a Late 6th-7th Round priority value, but that late grade had nothing to do with skill.

Marcus Davis doesn't really do much for me. He's pretty much a quasi-TE. I guess Seattle could use him in a number of creative roles and around the end zone. I had him in the 6th-7th round as well, but he doesn't excite me as a prospect like Wilson does.


Green Bay

I had Otten in the 6th Round, so this is close to that value. He's the right type of TE for GB if they want to replace Finley at some point. This is a pretty solid selection.


Denver

Don't like Gholston at all for a pass rushing position. He's a pure 34 DE in a two gap scheme, and he'll be decent at that, but he has no athleticism and offers zero pass rush. His role on Denver's defense would be the exact position Wolfe plays at LDE. This is a really bad fit if the goal is to play him at the other DE spot vacated by Dumervil. And the problem with using him to back up Wolfe is that Malik Jackson already is doing so. In terms of draft value, this is the right spot for Gholston, just a bad schematic fit.


Washington

Probably too early for Hyde, whom was one of my preferred targets in the Late 6th-7th Round. He has some off-the-field baggage, isn't the best athlete and doesn't give the best effort, but he is very productive and has excellent size. For a team that really needs secondary help, I understand this selection. There were far superior CBs still available though, that would be my gripe.


Atlanta

I know absolutely nothing about Keith Pough other than he's from a super small school and ran a 4.9, which means he has no chance of playing OLB in the NFL and probably has limited use on special teams. I don't like the selection.


Philadelphia

I do like the selection of Wagner. He was the last interesting OT prospect on the board for me. I think he goes in the 4th round range, so this is pretty good value. I like him. I thought he had a chance to be a 1st or 2nd Round pick a year ago, but he went back to school and had a relatively rough year playing LT. He probably fits best as a RT in the NFL, but needs to work on his strength and aggressiveness. I think he's a starter caliber prospect though, so this was great value in the late 5th.

I really like Micah Hyde the player. I have some close Iowa Ties, and they continually put out some quality DB's in the later rounds. Very few playmakers or gamechangers, but he grades higher on film due to his versatility than a late fifth round pick to me. Sanders Commings was much better value, but I like Hyde's Game to the NFL. Reminds me of Bradley Fletcher who just signed with PHI and a little like Charles Godfrey as well. Both were Iowa products and fundamentally sound prospects.

His off field issues are minimal, and Ferentz stripped him of his captaincy. However, he believes highly in his character and allowed him to continue to play. Nice Pick to me, I was hoping he would last until the sixth round but alas people are picking talent over value in this draft. Very, very unusual for an OM draft.

I was heading to bed before 24champ messaged me on FB and said he was taking Spence. I didn't even respond, smiled, hugged my Batman pillow and dreamt about killing zombies.

It's a terrible pick, batman sucks nuts(he fights a gay clown and got killed by Bane) and zombies will never be real. You ruined my draft and you guys are dead to me.
