Default C and G in rounds 2 and 3!

Fantastic!

Sketchy strategy yesterday. (Though I like the players.)



No flash today... all business...

ZANE BEADLES, OG

Regarded as one of the elite offensive tackles in college football, most professional talent evaluators view Beadles as the ideal guard at the next level. The four-year starter does have past experience at that position, moving from guard to tackle during his sophomore season. The consensus feels that he is the school's best offensive lineman since the Jordan Gross era (1999-2002).

Beadles has been a model of consistency since arriving on Utah's campus. A tough athlete with a high threshold for pain, he's played with injuries that would sideline most (concussion, knee sprain, leg laceration), reluctantly sitting out just one game during his career. He went on to start 50-of-51 contests for the Utes, producing 313 knockdowns/key blocks while coming up with key hits on 45 touchdown drives.

Beadles comes from a sports-oriented extended family. His father, Brad Beadles, played baseball at Hutchinson Junior College. His stepmother, Jill, started at point guard for Concordia Lutheran, which qualified for the NAIA Final Four in 1993-94. His mother, Jamie Legerski, played basketball for Wyoming. His stepfather, Joe Legerski, is the women's basketball coach at Wyoming and a former Utah assistant.

J.D. WALTON, C

A tenacious drive blocker who brings back memories of former Notre Dame and Kansas City Chiefs standout, Tim Grunhard, Walton should use some of his signing bonus to buy an IHOP, as he has truly mastered the art of serving up the "pancake" block while at Baylor. With 194 knockdowns to his credit during his last two seasons, what makes those numbers even more impressive is that he delivered 26 touchdown-resulting blocks for a running attack that scored 45 times on the ground in the Bears' last 24 contests.

The unquestioned leader of Baylor's offensive line, and a captain of an offense that returned nine starters in 2009, he has been a mainstay in the middle of the field. He started his final 36 contests in the pivot since transferring to Baylor after beginning his collegiate career at Arizona State.

I like multi year college starters in linemen. Always a good thing.

Jason Smith (rams last year 4th pick) said that Walton was the best lineman at Baylor when he was there.

Smith was the 2nd pick I believe... and it doesn't surprise me that Smith would have such a high level of respect for Walton. He was their leader, made the calls and was a very good Center for three years.

I really like what we've added so far. McD had a plan and he is executing to perfection!

I like the direction we have taken this draft. Every pick is at a position of need.

They will be plowing b****es out the way for Moreno in the redzone/3rd and shorts!

Moreno will be a top 10 Fantasy RB.

Three of our four picks can come in and start from day one. Awesome.

Yes! Now, a bit of depth at Corner would be nice.

When you consider we addressed our needs on day two and kept our picks, I can live with Tebow now. Its a solid draft so far. The remaining picks can be luxury picks.

Not much we can do about TT but hope he and mCd pan out.

Glad we got both a C and G.

Plus it was nice to see Floyd getting some more pub. Too bad Ernie Davis couldn't have been in Radio City with Floyd and Brown.

Day 2 was the shiznit. Awesome draft except for the drama yesterday... and I'm sort-of warming up to the Tebow pick.

That's the key. That's what I hoped for in my OP.

If we came out in the 2/3 round and took a TE and a RB or some ****, I'm very concerned.

Instead, we came out and took a couple of the highest regarded interior O prospects fairly high in this draft.

Plus, this Decker kid has been a forum favorite.

So, this thing is shaping up nicely. We went D-heavy in free agency, so clearly... Josh wants to give this offense a spark it clearly needed last season.

Much happier now looking at this thing as a whole draft. These last picks are just gravy.

We have picks in 5, 6 and 7. Hope their guy is there. Hate trotting out street scrubs to play LB.

BTW I hope this is it for WR's this year.

Denver KILLED IT today. Finally. If we can get some depth/youth on D tomorrow and through FA we'll be in good shape.

The more I hear people talk about Tebow the more comfortable I become with the pick. It's a gamble, but aren't they all?

I actually liked the Thomas pick as well, I just wish they had waited to see if he was there at 24. I think he would have been.

You build your team in rounds 2-4 of the draft. You hope and pray with your 1st round picks.

Larsen, Haggan, and Williams are all capable at that MLB spot.

We could use another one, but we could just as easily add a TE tommorow if Pitta is still available, or go RB??

We have needs at DT as well, but so far McD has done a great job and I suspect he knows best what we need tommorow.
