Default Draft Steals

Are there any players that your were surprised to see fall into the later rounds?

What player do you think was gift wrapped and handed to a team on the second day?
I think the obvious is the Bears getting DE Gilbert in the third, but my draft steal is going to the Jaguars in selecteing Rashad Jennnings the 6'1" 231lb RB out of Liberty with the 41st pick in the 7th round.

In three seasons at Liberty, Jennings set the league career records for yards gained rushing (3,633), placing second all-time for touchdown runs (42), rushing yardage average (5.74), rushing attempts (633) and all-purpose yardage (4,155). He also established a Big South mark with four games with at least three touchdown runs.

As a senior, he broke the Big South single-season records for most rushing attempts (263), most touchdown runs (17), most yards rushing (1,500) and best rushing average (136.36 ypg). His 1,690 all-purpose yards in 2008 rank second in league season annals (third with a 153.64 ypg average) while his average of 154.33 all-purpose yards per game in 2007 also placed second on that list.

I think this kid is going to have an impact this year on the Jags.

Who else do you have?
