    Mike O'Hara (The Detroit News) hit the nail on the head, Young and White you can defend, but from there on it was headscratcher upon headscratcher.

    I'm thinking these 'idiots' grade the teams picks on their fist day, because we didn't have a 3rd round pick, they didn't mention any other players.

    Mel Kiper who every one seems to hate mentioned Calvin Lowry to a very small extent

    The first to picks I will give them a A+. A lot of these will be wanting to shot themselves if White works out to be fine. Now the picks after that are hard to grade because of the fact that they were picking the BPA. I would have rather them draft some O-linemen but with them not taking any that means they believe Bell, Loper, and Stewart can handle the load. Also don't forget if Steve is cut Ty Law is still out there floating around to fill a veteran void in the CB position.

  6. about the void at cb the db that we picked up could be really good, he has great recovery speed being clocked in the 4.3s

    Let's be honest, if we had taken Matt Leinart and then White at #45, the press would be all over our jocks. Right or wrong the grades would be A's across the board.

    You see what they're saying about Leinart to the Cardinals? They've practically got him in the Hall of Fame.

    The more I think about it, the more I like our second day picks. Lowry was the best SS avaible. Yesterday, Terrell Davis was asked to name his sleeper pick of the draft. His choice was Stephen Tulloch. I'm looking forward to seeing this guy. Terna Nande is an amazing physical specimen. (4.5 speed, 41 lifts @ 225.) Jonathan Orr has good numbers (4.42, 6'2"), not bad for a 6th rounder. Finnegan has great speed (4.35) and will probably play CB. Toone is another athletic linebacker to add depth. Quinton Ganther is the only pick I can't defend because, frankly, I don't get it.

    The reason the one writer said A or D is because both our picks are boom or bust prospects. They're either gonna have great careers, or no one will remember them in five years.

    I don't know if he can be moved to FB or not. But apparently he is pretty shifty and is a good pass blocker, so he could be a 3rd down back like Holcombe was. Also he can contribute on special teams.

    If we deal either Brown or Henry, we'll need a #3 RB. That would come down to a competition between Ganther, Nash, and Peyton (and any UDFA we have in camp).
