    Anderson is a little bigger, and a little faster...

    I like Bushrod just fine, I just went in another direction late...

    Well, like I said, either of those two 7th round NTs could make a nice conversion project to the OL...

    I know a LOT about big Walt (Walter Thomas). He's huge of course, and he's a a natural athlete. The negative is that he's never shown any drive and he's dumb as a post. He was kicked off of Oklahoma State because he was not going to class and not doing well in the classes that he did attend. Then after he found his way to JUCO, he was kicked off the team during the season because he was failing every single class.

    This isn't just a case of a kid that doesn't like school (he doesn't), he doesn't show the drive or the passion to even do what it takes to play this game.

    In the late rounds, you're not gonna find anything but... I'm pretty sure Jerry was referring to his early round picks, the ones he's counting on to contribute this year...

    I seriously doubt we are going to take a NT and convert him to the Oline

    Awesome job (as usual) silverbear.

    I'm going to print this off and digest a bit more before offering too many comments.

    The only things I wanted to throw out right now is a request to please include Anthony Spencer in your first round analysis. And if we don't WR in the first, I think we will look at guys like Steve Smith and Anthony Gonzalez in the 2nd. Unfortunately, DeOssie is probably going to take a 3rd in my estimation. At 4th round, he is an absolute steal for any 3-4 team.

    It ain't like we've never done that... remember Mark Tuinei??

    Indeed, lots of offensive linemen in the NFL are converted defensive linemen... sometimes they were converted in college, sometimes they were converted when they got to the NFL...

    The point was to try either Thomas or Harris at NT, and if for whatever reason they don't work out, then perhaps think about trying them on the OL...

    Spencer is on my spreadsheet, which has something over 180 players on it... I wouldn't mind if the Boys went that way, but really don't expect them to in the first round...

    Wonderful read. Thanks for posting SB.

    I have 3 out of your 1st 4 on my wish list (which changes daily!).
    I love the results of the Blalock trade.
    I also like the late round choices.

    DB is an irritant given the profile of this draft class - but we see the reason for Smith's 'Economic problem'!
