    My Wildcats get their first QB since 1985 on an NFL roster and I have to hate him.

    looks like they got one player for every position. Helps that they started out with some extra picks in the first few rounds, but their draft is certainly chock full of big name guys.

    They should be happy with that haul.

    Good draft but if Dallas drafted a backup QB in the 3rd a injured CB that might not be ready till mid season in the 4th, A OT who was a backup in college in the 5th and a RB who you can say has hardly ever played a game above the HS level, I could only imagine the fall out.

    Just the first 3 picks make that scary good

    The early money says they skunked us unless Claiborne is Deion II or something close to it.

    It helps that they had a couple of extra picks in a deep draft but they seemed to use them well and took fairly reasonable risks along the way (ie. injured CB in the 4th).

    They'll probably convert Foles into a first rounder in two years and bring in their next backup.

    When will people ever learn that bringing the Eagles backup QB won't bring them success unless they bring Andy Reid over, too.

    I wish we had a guy named McNutt that would be an awesome jersey.

    It would be rated as the worst Dallas draft... ever by many fans.

    You'd expect that given they started out with an extra 2nd rounder and were just one pick behind us in the 1st.

    To tell you the truth, though, I take our draft over theirs. But that's largely because our guys fit roles better on our team.

    Not with the 2008 and 2009 draft in their memory.

    I know. You kid. I kid too.

    Yes the Eagles are leaps and bounds above us when it comes to drafting :rolleyes:


    Do yourself a favor and look up the past two years draft classes

    It could be a great draft, but there draft always looks great on paper. Forutinately it doesn't always turn out to be great.

    Yeah. The same teams always seem to draft the type of players I like. Often they're the teams I hate unfortunately. Philadelphia is one. Pittsburgh is another...

    Pittsburgh
    R1 David DeCastro, OG
    R2 Mike Adams, OT
    R3 Sean Spence, ILB
    R4 Alameda Ta'amu, NT
    R5 Chris Rainey, RB
    R7 Toney Clemons, WR
    R7 David Paulson, TE
    R7 ?
    R7 ?

    Denver: Derek Wolfe, DE/DT; Brock Osweiler, QB; Ronnie Hillman, RB; Omar Bolden, CB; Phillip Blake, C; Malik Jackson, DE/DT; and Danny Trevathan, OLB

    The Giants: David Wilson, RB; Rueben Randle, WR; Jayron Hosley, CB; Adrien Robinson, TE; Brandon Mosley, OT; Matt McCants, OT; Markus Kuhn, DT.

    Baltimore too, though I don't hate them.

    Washington, thankfully, never drafts well enough (or at all) for me to envy what they do.
