Lots of big uglies in there, that's a good thing.  Don't really understand the two TEs though but what the heck.  Surprised there wasn't WR somewhere.

Funny, on another board I said Tyson Jackson might go as high as 5 to the Browns.

Mack, great pick.

Robinson?  Kemo II.  Pass.  I'd take Levitre or TJ Lang.

Macho Harris?  I don't think he'll be all that in the pros.  I'd take Sherrod Martin, who goes 2 later.

TE Ingram?  Are we really going to use one of these WR/TE types?  No.  Plenty of WRs still left here.

Lewis?  He's 6'3", he's no tackle, he a guard.  

Melton?  As what, DE (light) or OLB (why?).

Hill?  Why?  Two recent DUIs, and he's down to 218#.  Not the Bettis type some think he is.

Another TE?  Two TEs, I'll piss blood.

Davis is an OK pick at the last spot.

Sorry, disagree.  Don't like this at all.

Yeah, I don't see us taking ANY TE's, but Mack, Robinson, and Macho Harris are a gold mine.

Robinson seems to make a lot of mental errors.  Just what we need, a guy who can outdo Colon in the penalty department.  He didn't impress vs. Florida, IMO.

Harris is really dropping.  NFLDS has him rated R5.  I think he's another guy who does stupid stuff, sort of an Anthony Smith of CBs.

I like Mack, though.  If I were in the driver's seat, and the draft unfolded just the way he has it, at 2.64 I'd take OG TJ Lang, E. Mich.; at 3.96, I'd take ILB Jason Williams, W. Illinois; at 4.132 I'd take NT Sammie Lee Hill, Stillman; 5.168 and 5.169, CB Greg Toler, St. Pual's and OT Joel Bell, Fuhrman; 6.205 DE Khalif Mitchell, E. Carolina; 7.226 WR/KR Deon Butler, PSU; 7.241 DB Don Carey, Norfolk St.  Priority FA: FB Frank Summers, UNLV; WR/ST Jason Cherry, LL; OG Roger Allen, W. Missouri; DE Everette Pedescleaux, N. Iowa; OT Phil Trautwine, Florida; DT Vaughn Martin, W. Ontario; QB Chris Pizzoti, Harvard.

A lot of small school guys in that mix.  I think we can afford to be patient with developmental types.

Actually like the way mine looked better.  Kinda sad.  Maybe I could write for some sports column.  Not have a clue, take a few guesses, call it a day

Don't agree with ya on this one. Yeah, the DUI's are an issue (prolly less of an issue that running fom the cops until they have to arrest him at gunpoint, but we're in the late rounds here. And, he had a nose for the end zone at Wisconsin. Not an every down back, but I'd love to have him for short yardage and goaline situations (he'll play at 240-250)

That's FURMAN, Finny!  When my son is there for the next four years developing into Casey Hampton Jr., I bet you'll remember the name!  And I'll remember it forever, thanks to the endless sea of checks I'm writing to them.

FYI, where these guys actually went:

Mack: 1.21 (I get a +11 for taking him at 1.32)
Lang: 4.109 (-45)
Williams: 3.69 (+27)
Hill: 4.115 (+17)
Toler: 4.131 (+38)
Bell: UDFA (*-87)
Mitchell: UDFA (*-51)
Butler: 3.91 (+135) - FWIW, I had Butler rated R3 too, but saw him as a steal here.
Carey: 6.177 (+64)

Came out ahead +109.  My UDFA Vaughn Martin went 4.113.

Lewis: UDFA (*-88)
Melton: 4.105 (+64)

Composite: -242.  Ack.
