    I have a feeling Williams will be a dud.

    Desmond King and Xavier Woods. Those kids should have been gone the late third at latest and I believe it will be revealed late this season. You can't teach what they have.

    Nice list.

    I think Cook is an obvious choice. Also, the Perine, Kazee and King picks look to be bargains.

    The one good thing he has going for him is that it was Baltimore who selected him.
    The have an inside track to 'Bama players. Ozzie Newsome is a great GM who learned
    from the best. He is in the best scenario to succeed but it's ultimately up to him.
    No team hits on every player, as you know.

    Good list.

    I should have had Lawson and Blair Brown. I guess Lawson's fall is health related.

    Carol Phillips is an interesting udfa.

    It's going to be interesting to look back on this draft four years from now. Based on the talent alone (if that talent develops as many assume it will), you could have Pro Bowls as deep as the seventh round.

    I was really hoping we'd pick Eddie Jackson. I'm projecting him to be an Ed Reed clone.
    What a gift Minnesota received in Cook. They likely would have taken him in the first round. They may not miss a beat in their running game.

    Chad Kelly. Not long ago he was talked about as a first round guy.

    They spent a lot of time with Basham. Thought there was a good chance he ends up here.

    I read Phillips scared teams off with I believe a neck issue.

    He's a knucklehead. Like a Johnny Manziel level knucklehead.

    Manziel went in the first
    Kelly was the last pick of the draft.

    He's called machine gun Kelly for a reason. Ten cents head would be generous.

    I can't really remember a draft like this one. It was sooooo deep at a few positions that teams just let really good players fall into the 5th and even 6th rounds. Guys who very well could have been 2-3 rounds higher if those positions weren't so deep or if they were in another draft. I think there's a good chance we look back in five years and see a ton of pro bowl caliber players were taken on the 3rd day.

    And in the end, neither will end up playing much in the NFL. So I can't call a guy who has a strong possibility of being a total bomb out in the NFL, "a bargain in the draft".

    Manziel has a substance abuse problem. Kelly threatened to shoot up a nightclub he felt that had slighted him.

    Kelly might well be a sociopath and a dumb one at that. Telling the press that was just stupid.
