    I hope we take Mitch King, DE Iowa next pick. He reminds me of Vandenbosch. Did we trade our 2nd next year for Cook? I missed the beginning of today. I was at work. Why in the world did we pass on Macho Harris in round 3?

    I kind of feel for that Quan Cosby kid that they were interviewing earlier. I think his age/size is probably not helping him any.

    Had a feeling an OC/OG guy would be one of the picks.

    I'll give them credit for knowing who they wanted.

    I like Quan. Looks like we took a guard from Syracuse. Bulluck'll be happy.

    "Overview
    Durand was named second-team All-Big East his senior season, his third consecutive year as the starting right guard. He led the way for 1,000-yard and second-team all-conference RB Curtis Brinkley in 2008. Durand's solid academic record and character put him in contention for the Draddy Trophy in 2008, while his strength inside put him on some teams' radars as a potential late-round pick."

    Analysis
    Positives: Good height and strong upper-body build. Could succeed in a zone-blocking system because he can get the line moving in the appropriate direction. Moves his feet well enough to get to linebackers in the box and sustain. Effective combo blocker, punching the tackle and getting to the inside shoulder of the end to make a hole. Will reach block to keep slanting linemen from affecting the play. Can move the linebacker out of the hole using his upper body when trap blocking. Gets down quickly to cut block.



    Negatives: Is not the athlete most teams want on their offensive line. Lumbers when pulling or working in space. Anchors adequately in pass protection, but tends to lean too much and must improve his lower-body strength. Waist-bender whose pad level is often too high. Will get ripped off after the initial hit, even by linebackers. Struggles to adjust to speed when one-on-one inside, whether from blitzers or ends beating the tackle."
