I'm very pleased with what we did this weekend (on paper).  We didn't have any "sexy" picks, but they all fill needs (except for the TE).  Hopefully one of the two CBs can develop like Gay has.  I still think the Oline will blow again next year, but we got two guys with some potential to add to the mix.  Between Hills, Urbik, and Shipley, one of them almost has to break out and be serviceable.  Wallace gives us a potential #4 WR for this year and a return man.  I love the Summers pick as well, hopefully that spells the end of Carey Davis.

My two cents, pretty happy.  Would have liked to see Lang or Meredith to compete at T/G but understood the logic behind every pick.  I like the quality of character they went after in Hood/Urbik.  Dipwad I disagree with you on that Urbik won't lower the amount of sacks (he holds like crazy, have you seen him in 1 on 1 drills).  Seriously, I really think he is a great pick though.  I like Shipley too.  The traits they selected are great.

OL-- intelligence, grit

DL- motor, work ethic

CB- anticipation, ability to jam

WR- speed

RB/FB- power, pass catching ability
