Well, I guess since nobody else has yet, I'll fire this topic up like I usually do this time of year!

Who loves what their team has done? Who thinks they dropped the ball??

Personally I was glad to see my Vikes play it safe with Matt Kalil to shore up the left tackle for the next 10+ years, and manage to squeeze 3 more picks out of Cleveland in the process to drop back one spot! Also psyched to see them trade back up into round 1 at the end to get the safety Smith, which is something they almost never do. Got corner Josh Robinson in the 3rd round, some sites had him as the sixth best corner available and he ran the fastest 40 at the combine this year. Looks like a pair of recievers late from Arkansas, wish they could've gotten one of the top few guys at that position, but you can't rebuild the whole team in one draft. Still a lot of work for them to do but I like this draft, now we just need a freaking decent place to play!

Was surprised to see NE trading up and being so aggressive...will Ryan Tannehill be the man for Miami? Not for a while, methinks...

Don't forget Tannehill has his college coach at the Dolphins so he'll be running the same system he ran his 2 years at QB at A&M.

Lions going D and I'm liking it. Don't like the Broyles pick especially with LaMichael James sitting there for them to take.

our thoughts ...............................

has proven a tidbit interesting to watch
the detailed analysis after detailed analysis seems grotesquely overdone
soon it will be nothing more than
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

Know what you're saying....The NFL is the KING league of hype. And now that it's not just ESPN but also their own network that has to double-cover the whole drawn out event, when likely 2/3 of these guys will never amount to anything in the league, it is overblown to say the least.

But, they package it so well and make it pretty exciting. The fact that they can HAVE in-depth analysis on pick # 205 or wherever, at all, speaks to the level of prep they do. And the level of obsession that a lot of people have for watching it and following their teams, I guess.

Holy crap, somebody put a lot of prep time into that analysis! Hilarious! Seattle's first-round surprise was the best!

Lions sign Kellen Moore. Now how about a running back pickup somewhere..... SOMEHOW! I realize we're in a "Passing Offense" phase in the NFL but Megatron and Co open things up for the run. Now if we could find a guy not made of tissue paper it would be nice. Well add to that a guy who has breakaway speed like Best and have the ability to run inside even just a bit like LeShoure should be able to (if they can staple his Achilles back together).

So many comments to make, but I'll save most of them because a few people got their panties in a bunch last year when I spoke about Kellen Moore and BSU.

Here's a few, though:

Kellen Moore is too small to play in the NFL (although his height and weight are almost identical to Drew Brees).

He played at BSU who we all know isn't very good/aren't for real/don't play anyone/blah blah (although BSU had 6 players drafted this year which is more than ANY Big 10 school - in fact, only 3 college teams had more draft picks than BSU this year).

Interesting article: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ncaaf--boise-state-s-six-nfl-draft-picks-prove-the-program-is-more-than-trick-plays-.html

Interesting quote from Coach Petersen regarding Kellen Moore not being drafted, but six other BSU players were: "Our best player didn't even get drafted."

and

"I'm not saying I know something NFL scouts don't know, but he's the best college player I've ever seen."

Yup, Scruff. You seem right on in your concerns.
We hope, for the young man's sake, and the other five finally drafted this year, that they have not seen their last hurrah.
