Obviously everyone likes to think they did well, and in all honesty we wont know till we see these guys play but we got good value picks everywhere...
The front 7 shouldnt be a weakness anymore...we have alot of talent and depth and can manuever back and forth between different fronts and blitz packages with ease...I would imagine CB's Terrance Newman and Henry are pretty happy today...the days of QB's getting 8-10 secodns to throw should be over
Loved day one...we got three potentially solid to dominant players with our three picks...if Ware turns into a Haley/McGinest or (
) an LT type prospect, our draft could be one of the alltimers...Spears and Burnett can both be very good
today, was pretty sure we'd take a RB early...thought we'd take Fason or Sproles, but am very pleased with Barber...only saw him play a few times but as an SEC guy, seeing him totally take apart a good Alabama defense in the bowl game this yr was an eye opener...getting Canty could turn into a tremendous steal, even if he cant be 100% this yr...its amazing that we have front players with the kind of wing spand that Ellis, Spears, Ware and Canty have...some teams are lucky to have one guy like that, we have four...Rob Petetti could be a major surprise if he gets his weight down some...was a very productive, steady player at Pitt in Waly Harris' pro style offense...Pitt has a history of producing good OL's as well, and Parcells has a history of finding 2nd day talents at OL
would love to see us add a veteran FS, I saw somewhere on the net (either here or mabe the Ranch) that Corey Hall was rumored to be a possible addition this week...might not be a bad signing...RT might still be a need, but not drafting an OL any earlier than round 6 could be an indication that Rogers is further along in his recovery than we had known, or maybe they'll look at the position again before or during training camp...
great job by Parcells and Ireland...this weekend shoudl go a long way towards getting us back where we need to be...not trading for Howard ended up working great for us, as Howard would have been a 2-4 yr fix at best, whereas these kids today can be longterm players and Ware has alot more upside than Howard
