Nice write up. I also liked our draft. Grade A overall.

I can definately see a scenario where he can prove the doubters (including me) wrong. In Pittsburgh he is probably in the best position to do that. It seems that a lot of Landry's weaknesses are Ben's strengths and who better to learn fom then Ben. The reason I gave him quite a low grade was that as much as I see a scenario where he is a future starter I also see one where he becomes nothing, I was comfortable with Batch and Gradowski as back-up Qb for the next year, And even though it adds strength I feel we could have traded this pick away in the Shamarko deal so we didn't have to give up a third round pick.
Of couse he could become our best QB ever, and that is the thing with the draft, you don't know how you have done until the games are played.

First time on the boards in years. Seems like a good time to come out of retirement. Hopefully this time it doesn't become my life. lol. Anyway, nice write up. I will however disagree about Nick Williams. Seriously doubt you'll ever see him lined up as an ILB.

welcome back and I agree.

Nick Williams is going to play at DE and will never line up at ILB.

Can I just say that your mock is pretty damn good, if you didnt take players correctly you got the positions.

Hi and welcome!! I will echo everyone else here and say your write up was terrific. It dumbed it down for me since I don't pay attention to college football and know NO player let alone anything about them, which makes the draft pretty meaningless to me, lol. So thanks for that! And I've got to say your knowledge of football, for being a brit and all, is impressive. In fact, I think you can put some American guys to shame!
