    As I prepared to do my early look at the 2012 NFL Draft -- why wait? -- just for reference sake I looked up my list of the top-32 players for the 2011 NFL Draft that I compiled last April.

    How wrong was I?

    Let's put it this way: I didn't have Auburn's Cam Newton, who went first overall to Carolina, in my 32. Nick Fairley, his teammate at Auburn who went 13th overall, also wasn't on the list.

    3. Matt Kalil, T, USC: There is a reason Tyron Smith, the Cowboys' first-round pick this year, played right tackle instead of on the left side. Kalil is that reason.


    So it begins :rolleyes:

    What's wrong with that? It's been said by the coaches that it wasn't that Smith COULDN'T play LT, it was just that Kalil was even better than him at LT. It's like starting a guy in Madden who has a 98 rating over a guy who has a 94 rating. It's a nice problem to have.

    32. Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia: He is the son of former NFL corner Frank Minnifield. Like his dad, he excels in man coverage.

    I don't see us taking Chase. :laugh2:
