    All right, to add order to chaos, I will start Round Six thread giving at least two highlighted profiles of the choices.

    Who do you want addressed? TE LB CB? This is for you fans, not me.

    Well if Patrick hasn't gone and we don't pick him, I'll be shocked after many here were wanting him in the 4th round.

    One pick to go.

    I'd pick TE, QB and RB. Overload the offense with these picks.

    Re: DAY TWO ROUND SIX PICKS

    yes in the 4th by Oakland


    Maybe the Pack should get DeAndre Jackson from Iowa state...he is way underrated thanks to his injury, I think he has healed though.

    Re: DAY TWO ROUND SIX PICKS

    PACK PICK 192 DESMOND BISHOP LB

    Desmond Bishop
    ILB | (6'1", 239, 4.72) | CALIFORNIA

    Scouts Grade: 54

    Flags: (S: SPEED) Player lacks ideal speed at position.

    Strengths: Possesses good overall size. Is quicker than fast. Shows good instincts and a nose for the ball. Takes solid angles in pursuit. Is big and powerful enough to take on blockers in the phone booth. Fills hard versus the inside run and shows the power to blow up iso-blockers in the hole. He is a powerful tackler with good wrap-up skills in space. He plays with a high motor and a mean streak. Always seems to be around the football and is a playmaker versus the run. Makes his presence felt over the middle of the field in coverage.
    Weaknesses: His marginal speed is a major limitation. He will struggle to make plays outside the tackle box versus the run and he won't be able to run around blockers when necessary. He needs to play with more consistent leverage. Will lose his power when attempting to take blockers on too high. Needs to do a better job of protecting his legs in space. Takes some false steps versus the play-fake. Lacks ideal closing burst as a pass rusher and must how to get off of blocks once reached. Not a huge playmaker in the passing game. Lacks the fluid hips and top-end speed to turn and run versus faster running backs one-on-one in coverage. Also displays below average ball skills in coverage.
    Overall: Bishop originally attended City College of San Francisco where he was a member of their 2003 National JUCO Championship team. He earned first team JUCO All-American honors in 2004 after playing in 10 games and making 118 total tackles. He transferred to Cal-Berkeley in 2005 and wound up starting all 12 games and finishing with 89 total tackles, six tackles for loss, and one forced fumble. Bishop again started all 13 games in 2006, earning first team All-Pac 10 honors after finishing with 126 total tackles, 15 tackles for loss, three sacks, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.
    Bishop had a breakout season as a first-year transfer in 2005 and continued to improve as a senior in 2006. He has proven to be an instinctive playmaker with good size and toughness versus the run. Unfortunately, he will not be able to overcome his marginal speed and athleticism in the NFL. Bishop projects as nothing more than a reserve run-stopping inside linebacker with no value on passing downs, which is why he should will slip to the final few rounds of the 2007 draft.

    ______________________________________________________________________________


    Called the "pulse" of the Cal defense, Bishop enjoyed a banner senior year, leading the Pac-10 with 126 tackles. A model of consistency, he registered at least seven tackles in 18 of the 25 games he played in for the Bears since transferring from the City College of San Francisco.

    The son of former Illinois defensive back Dennis Bishop, Desmond's father was selected in the 1983 United States Football League territorial draft by the Chicago Blitz and played with that team before the league's demise.

    Desmond Bishop was a second-team All-State selection by Calhisports.com while a senior at Fairfield High School. He also played in the California North-South Shrine All-Star Game in 2002.

    Upon graduating, he enrolled at the City College of San Francisco, where he was a teammate of present California quarterback Joe Ayoob. He was ranked by Super Prep as the fourth-best community college player in the nation and was voted California's 2004 Junior College Defensive Player of the Year by the JC Athletic Bureau/California Community College Football Coaches Association. He also was named the Northern California Conference Defensive Most Valuable Player.

    Bishop was a first-team JC Gridwire All-American, averaging almost 12 tackles per game with 118 stops in 10 regular-season contests in 2004. He was virtually unstoppable in the state's championship game with 14 tackles (including eight solo stops), one sack and two tackles for loss against College of the Canyons. He was the driving force behind a Ram defense that ranked seventh in points allowed (15.4 ppg) and ninth in yards yielded (249.7 ypg) in the state. He also played on CCSF's undefeated (13-0) team that won the national championship in 2003.

    The talented linebacker immediately won a starting job at California upon his arrival in 2005. He picked up second-team All-Pac 10 Conference honors, as he led the team with 89 tackles (62 solos). He added six stops behind the line of scrimmage and a quarterback pressure while also causing one fumble and deflecting two passes.

    Bishop garnered All-Pac 10 first-team accolades in 2006. He captured the conference title and led the Bears for the second consecutive year with 126 tackles (63 solos). He had three sacks, a team-high 15 stops for losses and two pass break-ups. He intercepted three passes, caused two fumbles and recovered two others.

    Bishop started all 25 games that he appeared in at California. He collected 215 tackles (125 solos) with three sacks for minus-18 yards and 21 stops for losses of 54 yards. He added one quarterback pressure with four pass break-ups. He caused three fumbles and had a pair of fumble recoveries. He also totaled 79 yards on three interception returns (26.3 avg).


    ANALYSIS
    Positives: Has a thick frame with a tight midsection, good arm length and muscle definition, large hands, thick thighs and calves and broad shoulders (looks the part of an ILB) … Physical inside run plugger whose aggressive style and punishing hits make up some for a lack of ideal quickness … Hard worker who struggled with his academics earlier in his career, but shows good field vision and instincts … Normal reps type who is mostly a collision type of tackler, but can run to the ball with good urgency, as he is quick to locate it working through trash … Can fill the rush lanes with force and gets proper body position when attacking offensive linemen in one-on-one situations … Has the hand punch to jam tight ends and backs in the short-area passing game … Flashes good ability to jab and punch in attempts to get off blocks working in-line … Compensates for a lack of speed and marginal hip snap by reading the plays and avoiding blocks when closing … Decent in attempts to thread through traffic and does a good job of using his hands to protect himself from low blocks … Has the upper body strength to take on the lead blocker, stack at the point of attack and clog the rush lanes … Can charge through traffic, fend off the cut blocks, split double teams and keep his feet in attempts to close on the pocket … Has the functional strength needed to drag down the ball carriers and hits with good pop on contact … Reads the plays quickly and knows how to take the shortest path to the ball … Has decent hands and extension to catch and secure the ball outside his frame … Shows good anticipation skills to get up field and avoid reach blocks … Plays with a steady motor and uses angles to fill hard against the inside running game … Keeps his hands active and inside his frame when taking on blockers and is also effective at using his hands to reach in and try to separate the ball from the runner.

    Negatives: More of a two-down type of linebacker, as he has just marginal range and very stiff hips, preventing him from flowing to the ball along the sidelines … Lacks suddenness and labors to recover when beaten due to poor timed speed … When this happens, he reverts to getting tall in his stance and blockers are quick to attack his body … Has poor backpedal technique, as he is prone to taking false steps and his stiff hips makes him look awkward in attempts to turn and run after the ball … Has limited man coveraqe agility, as he is more often trailing the receiver rather than mirroring his opponent … Shows poor body flexibility when dropping off in coverage, getting a bit out of control in his charge when having to change direction … Doesn't have the burst to get a jump on the ball in flight when playing in the zone.

    Compares To: Larry Foote, Pittsburgh … If you are looking for a physical run stuffer who is great at playing inside the box and taking down the lead blocker to clog the rush lanes, Bishop fits that need. However, he lacks quickness, shows poor timed speed, is a liability in man coverage and is too stiff in his hips to generate the range needed to make outside plays. He might be more of a situational short-yardage/ground game-only type of contributor at the next level, but he will punish an opponent with his collision-type tackling ability.

    DAY TWO ROUND SIX PICKS

    PACK PICK 193 CROSBY KICKER



    When it comes to the art of kicking off, few players in the collegiate or professional ranks boast the leg strength Crosby has. The holder of 31 school game, season and career records, he closed out his tenure as Colorado's all-time scorer with 307 points. While some skeptics cite the thin air in the Mile High City for the success of kickers in the Denver area, Crosby has proven time and again that he can be just as successful at sea level. With his power and follow-through, records at the professional level could soon be in jeopardy.
    As a senior at Georgetown High School, Crosby earned first-team All-District 13-5A honors as a placekicker, punter and free safety, adding All-Central Texas as a kicker. Prep Star named him to its All-Midlands team, while Rivals.com ranked him as the third-best placekicker in the nation. He was first-team All-District and second-team All-Region at kicker as a junior.
    During his final season, Crosby converted 7 of 11 field goals (long of 59) and 23 of 25 extra-point attempts. He owned a 39.8-yard average for 40 punts (61 long), with 10 kicks being downed inside the 20-yard line, including five inside the 5. At free safety, he recorded 78 tackles (26 solos), eight for losses, three interceptions, three passes broken up, three forced fumbles and two recoveries.
    In the Cedar Park High game during his senior year, his 59-yarder was the longest field goal in Texas prep football in eight years and tied him for the third longest in state history. He also had a 61-yard punt in the game. In the Round Rock game that year, he had seven tackles and two interceptions, returning one for a touchdown and kicking the extra point following the score.
    As a junior, Crosby made 8 of 10 field goals (52 long) and 17 of 20 PATs (all misses were blocked). He averaged 37.2 yards on 60 punts (64 long), with eight inside the 20. He had 58 tackles (25 solos, 10 for losses), with three interceptions, four pass deflections, three hurries and two fumble recoveries. Against Copperas Cove as a junior, he made three field goals (52, 46 and 39 yards) against a team that came in with five consecutive shutouts.
    Georgetown High was 5-5 his senior year and 6-4 his junior season under coach Larry Moore. He also earned two letters in soccer (defense/midfielder), receiving All-District honors as a sophomore (14 goals) and junior (17 goals).
    Crosby, a single-digit handicap golfer, has good athletic roots. His father, Jim, was a fullback at Texas-El Paso and his grandfather, Harry, ran track at Marshall. Having spent two years in the Fort Collins region as a youngster, he became an avid Colorado Buffalo fan, making his decision easy during the prep recruiting wars.
    Crosby enrolled at the University of Colorado in 2003. He was only the second true freshman to handle the place-kicking chores in a CU season opener in school history, and only the fifth to see any action, period. He set a Colorado record for the most points scored by a freshman with 52 (the old record of 48 was shared by two players). The talented first-year performer connected on 31 of 37 PATs and 7 of 9 field goals. Only 10 of his 37 kickoffs were returned, with 26 being ruled touchbacks (17 of those boots sailed clear out of the end zone).
    In 2004, Crosby was the unanimous first-team All-Big 12 Conference selection and a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award, earning second-team All-American honors from The NFL Draft Report and Rivals.com. He led the NCAA in field goals made from 50-plus yards with six (topping Ohio State's Mike Nugent, the Groza winner, who had five), and hit on 23 of 29 overall for the season (19 of 23 during the regular season, 4 of 6 in the bowl game).
    Crosby led the conference and was sixth in the nation in field goals made per game (1.77), and became just the 10th player in NCAA history to make a 60-yard or longer field goal without a tee when he nailed a 60-yarder against Iowa State, the longest in the nation in 2004. He also kicked the game-winning field goal in that game, doing so again in the Colorado State and Washington State contests.
    As a junior, Crosby was runner-up for the Lou Groza Award (by just six points to Oregon State's Alexis Serna). He became the first placekicker in Colorado history to earn first-team All-American honors and was the unanimous selection for first-team All-Big 12 Conference honors, adding league Special Teams Player of the Year accolades.
    Crosby put together an amazing list of accomplishments for the season, the crown jewel being a 58-yard field goal at Miami, the longest ever at sea level (seven feet) without a kicking tee in NCAA Division I-A history. He led the team in scoring with 94 points, converting all 31 PAT kicks (he has made 38 consecutive) and 21 of 28 field goals. He also led the nation in the average distance per field goal made at an astounding 41.2 yards. Only 18 of his 61 kickoffs were returned, with 33 of his 43 touchbacks going out of the end zone. Six games were decided in Colorado's favor thanks to Crosby's field goal exploits.
    The nation's premier placekicker in 2006, as evidenced by Crosby earning first-team All-American honors, he was strangely relegated to semifinalist activity on the Lou Groza Award voting. One of three team captains, he became the seventh player in Colorado history to be named first-team All-Big 12 Conference three times. He connected on 19 of 28 field goals, though most of the misses were from long range; he was a solid 17 of 19 inside 50 yards, as good as anyone in the country (one of the two misses was blocked), as he finished with 74 points scored.
    One of his failed field goals just missed sailing through the upright, a 65-yard attempt against Iowa State. "I was a little disappointed about it, I hit it about as good as I thought I could I just got a little too much height. You usually don't complain about height, but I needed a little more drive and a little less height. Hopefully I'll get another chance next year in the NFL."
    Crosby also kicked off 43 times, with only 15 of his attempts being returned. Asked about his kickoff success and the high amount of touchbacks he produced (137 of 200 kickoffs), he matter-of-factly replied, "I don't usually think about not kicking it for a touchback but I always try to get good height. So if it doesn't go for a touchback then at least it sets up our coverage team in good position to prevent a good return."
    Crosby closed out his career by becoming the first Colorado placekicker to play in the Senior Bowl, where he scored nine points in the game to help the North to a 27-0 win. He holds the school record for kickers by playing in 48 games. He is the school's all-time scorer with 307 points, connecting on 66 of 88 field goals (75.0 percent) and 109 of 117 extra-point attempts. He was successful on 19 of 25 field goals from the 40-49 yard range, 11 of 20 from 50-59 yards and made one of four tries from beyond 60 yards. He also had just 63 of 203 kickoffs returned, as 138 were ruled touchbacks and 88 went out of the end zone.
    ANALYSIS
    Positives: Has a thick frame with adequate muscle development, thick thighs and calves … Shows very good agility, balance and body control in his approach to the ball … Right-footed soccer-style kicker with fluid leg action and extension … Makes good adjustments on the field and works hard at his craft … Shows very good poise in pressure situations and demonstrates the explosive leg drive to consistently launch his kickoffs into the end zone (only 62 of his 203 kickoffs were returned, as 138 were ruled touchbacks, including 88 that sailed out of the end zone) … Very consistent in his long-range field goal attempts, having connected on 30 of 45 attempts between the 40-59-yard range) … Seemed to have made some of his biggest kicks in inclement weather conditions or at sea level, disputing the fact by some that Crosby's success has been the result of the thin air in Colorado (owns the third-longest field goal in the history of football, college or professional) … Very confident in his ability to make the long-range kicks … Can also handle punting duties effectively in an emergency … Has the hands to adjust to the off-target punt snap … Drives the ball for tremendous distances and with excellent hang time (averaged 68.7 yards on his kickoffs) … His snap-to-toe range is superb, generally getting the ball off under 1.26 seconds … Gets the ball up quickly and with good rise (two blocked kicks during his career) … Gets incredible hang time on his kickoffs (4.37-4.54 second average) that has prevented the opposition from returning many of those kicks (only 26.5 percent of his kickoffs have been returned) … Excels in pressure situations, coming through with six game-winning field goals as a sophomore and junior … Extremely accurate on his intermediate field goals and placements … Has more than enough leg strength to drive his ball against the wind … Athletic enough to serve as a lead blocker on fake field goals, and while not fast he has the leg drive to break tackles carrying the ball … Likes to get down field and cover on kickoffs and will make every effort to deliver the tackle … His seven-yard approach on kickoffs (does so without a tee) allows him to generate full force of his leg strength and he has a quick approach to the ball, showing very good extension and follow-through on his two-step field goal approach.
    Negatives: Likes to get down field to cover on kickoffs, but lacks speed to be more than a space occupier … Will sometimes shank a few when he gets rushed in the backfield, resulting in low trajectory.
    Compares To: Jeff Wilkins, St. Louis -- For consistency, accuracy, leg strength and excellence on kickoffs, few in the league can match Wilkins in those areas. That is, until Crosby earns a job in 2007 training camp. Don't buy into that line that he has an advantage kicking in a thin air environment. There is no one in the collegiate ranks that can match Crosby's leg strength.

    Mason Crosby
    PK | (6'1", 212, 5.2) | COLORADO

    Scouts Grade: 72
    View by: Round | Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History
    You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.


    Strengths: Possesses very good leg strength and has shown exceptional range on field goal attempts. Is consistent, is accurate and rarely misses field goal attempts inside 40 yards. Gets excellent distance when kicking off, is expected to push for punting duties during senior season and is versatile.

    Weaknesses: Plays at Colorado, where the air is thinner. There is concern that power is somewhat exaggerated. Has had several kicks blocked and needs to polish his release technique.

    Overall: Crosby won the starting spot as a true freshman in 2003 for all 12 games, made 31 of 37 extra point attempts (three blocked), and seven of nine field goal attempts (long; 44 yards). In 2004, he again kicked in all 13 contests earning unanimous first team All-Big 12 honors after making 31 of 33 extra point attempts and 23 of 29 field goal attempts (long; 60 yards). Crosby was selected to the All-Big 12 first team for the second consecutive year in 2005 and was the runner-up for the Lou Groza Award after converting all 31 extra point attempts and 21 of 28 field goal attempts (long; 58 yards) in 13 games. In 2006, Crosby again earned All-Big 12 first team honors after kicking in all 12 games, finishing 19-of-19 on extra points and 19-of-28 on field goals (long; 56 yards). Over his four year career he has kicked off 203 times for 138 touchbacks.
    Crosby did not have a great senior season, he gets too many kicks blocked and his stats may be a bit inflated. However, he possesses a rare blend of power and accuracy, which is why he still grades out as the clear-cut No. 1 kicker in the 2007 class. Crosby projects as a late first-day or early second-day pick.

    DAY TWO ROUND SIX PICKS

    We go back to back LBs.... interesting.

    Perhaps Ted now realizes we might need a TE.... preferably before the end of round 7...

    DAY TWO ROUND SIX PICKS

    Special teams last year were absolutely atrocious. God awful. Guaranteed those two LBs were scouted and picked to address that need.

    I sure hope that's the rationale.

    Crosby was a steal, I can live with that pick.

    how can it says that Crosby only had 2 kicks blocked and then someone else says he gets too many kicks blocked? Goofy "experts."
