Round #2 Martin Nance, WR Miami Ohio (I like him becuase he is big and Ben and Him have played together in college).

Round #3 Greg Eslinger, C, Minnesota (2nd best C coming into the draft, we will need dept when hartings is cut)

Round #4 Cedric Humes, RB Virginia Tech (Big Back Great For Short Yardage And Goal Line).

Rounds #5, #6, #7 best players availible.
During his NFL Combine interview, Miami University WR Martin Nance said he measured a height of 6-4.02 and a weight of 213 pounds. He said he might add a couple more pounds, but feels his speed is pretty good now. His fastest 40-yard dash time was a 4.35. Nance says he's a big receiver who can stretch the field and makes plays after the catch. Nance is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in Game 5 of 2004. He had surgery in early October of 2004 and returned for the 2005 season with a different quarterback throwing to him. Nance is still working on his speed and tightening up his control....I'd like to see us take a chance on Nance.....
