I watched those games to evaluate Anthony, who never wowed me at all, and kept saying who is the kid playing Field Corner? I saw exactly the opposite you did.

The difference is the way they play. Anthony is a slow big guy who relied on press technique and mugging guys downfield that you can get away with in college. He is feisty, but he will not get away with playing that way in the NFL unless he plays for the Patriots

Williams plays more off coverage and drives on the route. He also can run the seams with his speed and recover inside or outside on WR breaks. He is not going to flash as a physical guy like Anthony. However, his game translates better to the NFL, especially in the slot and there are not many Slow Physical CB's making a living at the next level like there are in College.

I like the selections lately, all rock solid.


Johnny Adams is a quality CB selection in the 6th round, he's a little scheme specific, but he can play. I was mocking him to the Broncos in this round during the season before Tony Carter emerged, and it was determined we lost our 6th in the Bunkley trade. Needless to say, I'm a fan.

Aaron Mellette is one of those high upside, athletic, small school guys that makes a ton of sense at this point. He was probably one of the best bigger WR prospects remaining. This is the round I like to start taking fliers on the small school standouts.

Mike Gillislee is good value here. He potentially could go a bit higher in the real draft, probably the 5th round, but he's only had the one true year of solid production at Florida, and he wasn't overly exceptional. Just a solid player, probably projects as a #3 RB, like a Lance Ball.

H is not only for Houston Texans. . . it is for. . .



Which is what we just did selecting Khaled Holmes. How the **** did he slide to the end of the sixth round?

With Ben Jones being the current back-up to Chris Myers and starting at G, the Texans needed an insurance policy at center and are getting a quality player, although he took a fart at the combine. The selection of Kyle Long also gives the Texans versatility at G/T moving forward.

Trenches are a big focus for Houston in this draft and we are happy. Another sixth round pick is coming up and we just might hit a grand slam with it.

YOU KNOW DAT SONS.

I'm not the biggest fan of Holmes at all. That being said, he might be a good player in a ZBS. So, this is a good fit. I put him in the 6th round area in my rankings because he has no power to his game and gets man-handled all the time. His lack of power has been the critique on him for at least two years now, and he still hasn't improved. So, I question his work ethic too. It's a decent pick for me, to the right team if he's to have any success, but I do like a couple OCs more for power based schemes.


Really like Kerwynn Williams. I feel he's a steal at this point. Not entirely sure where he gets drafted in real life, but he's in that next tier down after the top tier scat backs, well ahead of guys like Jamison. So, that probably puts him in the late 4th - 5th round range. I was considering trading up for him just because I like his game so much.


Great selection on Josh Boyd. I think the comparison to Jay Ratliff's style of play is a good one. I could see him as a NT in Ryan's scheme. Pretty positive Boyd goes in the 4th-5th round, he was one of the best players left.

Someone needs to pinch draft for the Seahawks guy....again. He has to be up on the list of people too busy in RL to do this game.

The biggest need IMO for the 'Hawks is an OLB to replace Leroy Hill. Carroll prioritizes speed, so you're looking for a guy that's in the mold of Zaviar Gooden or Khaseem Greene.

I will put a text out to sirhcyennek to make his selection as 3 drafters have selected. I am going to wait about an hour, so it's a decent time to text someone on a Sunday morning.

Grissom is an ok prospect at this point in the draft. He had some early buzz, but it's kind of died down after a mediocre post season. Probably just a depth guy on the D-line at this point.


Don't know much about Watford. Looks like one of the remaining small school standout fliers. OG is pretty much empty at this point.


Jasper Collins is an intriguing small school slot prospect. From all accounts showed well at the Shrine game.



Not positive any of these guys get drafted for sure, but we're at the point now where it's all subjective.

i am completely just throwing darts at this point in the draft, i have no idea who any of these guys are anymore

DL is an area where i feel Falcons could use some depth and guys that can take up blockers which from i have read grissom does well

Well, looking at the Raiders' roster, I have no doubt you'll get three starters. *I* might be able to start. You could draft me in the 7th!

Nice snag on Renfree. I was starting to eyeball him myself. I think he goes in the 6th, but depending on the QB run, he could go even earlier. Definitely the last of the certain QBs to be drafted. There's still a few left I like, but he would have been ideal to back up Dalton. *shakes fist angrily*

Thanks MUG. Not as good as Gilbert Gottfried, but still a nice snag in the 6th. Especially with Rivers imploding left and right these says; alternate plans at QB are required for the bolts, methinks.
