kenny phillips or philip merling in the 1st round.
any rb not named mendenhall or stewrt in 1st round
any cb not ranked top 2 in 1st round
any wr other than d. thomas, l. sweed or j. nelson in the 1st 3 rounds.

really im glad we passed on everybody available with our 1st 2 picks.

I'm REALLY glad we didn't trade up for or reach for Sam Baker or Duane Brown in the first round like some other teams.

Manningham. I was disapointed that the Giants took him too. Maybe fellow Michigan WR Amani Toomer can straighten his punk ass out. I hate young, punk, millionaire atheletes. :banging: ...and this one DEFINITELY needs to be humbled.

I agree...I also brought up that Tony Hills has as much upside as Duane Brown...Only difference the Texans reached for Brown in the first while the Steelers were able to snag Hills in the 4th....Only knocks on Hills is health....Sam Baker is soft and I'm so glad he isn't a Steeler...

I'm so glad Otah or Cherilus wasn't picked in the first....I thought Otah was vastly over-rated and to much of project...I had Cherilus rated as a 2nd round guy...

its seems otah slipped cause no teams were really projecting him beyond RT. if thats the case, i'd probably rather had cherilus.

I'm just happy we didn't reach for a o-lineman.

Can't say I agree with that. King or Connor would have been a nice addition. I guess the staff didn't feel they fit the scheme they have in mind for next season.

i guess we didn't want a tackling machine in dan connor who had 419 career tackles at psu....

i'm just glad we didn't trade up to get an o-lineman and stayed where we were to get our nice picks in the 1st 3 rds..

Yeah, I love Connor, but they must feel that Timmons is gonna be that tackling machine at ILB and we didnt need an ILB in the 3rd round.

Any offensive lineman on the first day.

Glad we realized we had more immediate needs at the skill positions on offense. Which also happens to be where you can also plug guys in and get results right away.

I was going to say, theres no way Lauranitus falls to us, but after this year who knows.

Jonathan Stewart...Mendenhall is way better!

Quentin Groves
Sam Baker-reach!
Kentwan Balmer
Matt Ryan or Joe Flacco-huge reaches

I was crushed that we lost Branden Albert and Kendall Langford, but I think our new picks will do enough to make up for it.
