    Don't know much about him. Looks like he's got size. Hopefully Clifton can be a good mentor.

    I like that he started on the defensive side of the ball, isn't afraid to get out and lay a lick on someone in the run game. Not an immediate starter of course, but think he'll bring in good competition and has had a history of playing both sides, so with injuries he will be a good filler if needed this year.

    Yeah he will definitely bring some good competition during the offseason. Maybe light a fire under a few people and get them to step up this year and own a few people.

    (one can hope!)

    This is one of those picks where I just defer to TT and trust him with it. He's good with the small school picks. Greg Jennings, Western Michigan, enough said. Lol.

    I just hope Grant makes some major improvements over the offseason to get our running game "in shape". He seemed to have a major drop last year. Hell, I had him on my fantasy team and I sat him for most of the season...

    This could be a huge bust or a great pick. It seems that lineman from the MAC are pretty decent so hopefully TJ isn't the exception. Looked great on film in the draft workouts. Seems to have excellent footwork which is key.

    You know, I didn like this guy. AT. ALL. Then I started reading this forum and a few people changed my mind. He's on his way to a good career as a guard. He's like Colledge only hopefully less fat (read: lazy)
