Exclamation Re: 1st rd. over, any thoughts

My first post and i'm an English fan so bear with me.

Heath Miller is a steal for the Steelers - no pun intended - number 1 at this position and available at 30, wow!!

I have to say myself that the pick in the 2nd may top that. We needed a CB and I think we may have an absolute gem, most of his moves will take place at the line of scrimmage, he is a tough, hard hitting player, he could probably add a few more pounds on to his body without affecting his skills.

I especially like the comments made by a draftnik who knows what he is talking about - see below:

Bryant is very close to being a first round pick. He reminds me a lot of Chris Gamble of Ohio St in last year?s draft, but Bryant is further along with his skills then Chris was. In fact, Bryant is further along with his CB skills at this stage than a lot of CB?s in this draft. The biggest concern for me with Bryant is how much better he can get. Is he a #2 CB or a #1 CB? Bryant must make the scouts feel that he can stay on the field and to do that, he must bulk up. Look to the combine for the answer to this. If Bryant goes to the combine and keeps or gains the weight that he had at the Senior Bowl and doesn?t lose any speed or quickness, then he could sneak into the first round. At the Senior Bowl, he was up to 191 lbs and his workouts were good. He has made a lot of scouts re-evaluate their profiles on him. Not me -- I know Bryant has 1st round talent and if I needed a CB, I would pick him over a lot of flashy Juniors that are coming out without the techniques needed to be successful in the NFL.

Sorry for the long post, will try and keep it shorter in future :)
