    Very odd. Graham and Posey 6th or 7th round types

    And the Texans took Tauron Poole from OSU. Just means another guy falls to us.

    I don't know haha, I would love Maize or Rainey in the 6th though (with Broyles, Hilton, and LaMichael James gone now...)

    I thought he'd be a good pickup for us. I'm telling you this guy is good.

    I wondered the same thing, Sdogo. Clearly, some of the teams' draft boards differ greatly from ours, and that suits me fine, as it pushes more talent down to the Cowboys' 4th round picks.

    Hopefully Joe Adams continues to drop.

    Say what? They took DeVier Posey from Ohio State and Brandon Brooks from Miami (Ohio) in the third?!?

    Actually, he's just now starting to drop...I had him rated as the #95 player overall, so grabbing him at any point after the third round is a good value.

    In the 7th round, he'd have been a good pick. Anywhere before is a reach, in my opinion...although clearly at least one set of professionals disagreed with me.

    I am gonna go with the Redskins fan's logic:

    Its because we drafted Morris Claiborne so everyone is loading up on WRs....

    :grin:

    This is why I think we will be looking at Orson Charles instead of a WR. He is a very good all-around TE, lacks some height, and probably not the most athletic. But I think he is a better overall prospect than Phillips. I just hope we somehow get a return guy. I know Brandon Boykins is still available ;) Maybe Rainey, who I thought would have gotten taken in the third. I could see a team grabbing him early based on potential offensive weapon like McCluster.

    You're right. For some reason, I got the names mixed up when I went to type it. Senility? Dyslexia? Plain old stupidity? Take your pick.

    Graham can fly, I think he can play too.

    Posey was obviously hurt by the big scandal in Buckeye nation. I liked Posey but not at the 5th pick in round 3. Though, I do think he had better upside than a 6 or 7 based solely on his route running and finding the holes in the zone.
