    Just wondering if anyone else is watching the combine, and if so have you notice the 1st round draft order that they keep showing? I keep seeing us have an 18th pick as well as the 30th pick...I just assumed it was a mistake 'cause I have not heard anything about us having the 18th pick...but I've watched it scroll across the screen multiple times and it def shows that.

    Am I missing something?

    Yeah, I saw that as well. It's a mistake though. I do believe the Texans have the 18th overall pick though.

    Although, maybe there's a trade in the works for us to move up and they accidentally let it slip out early? =)

    I saw it too, and rushed quickly to see if any trade had happened.

    I'm guessing it's a mistake.

    ---------------------------


    I'm not expert on the draft, so why is it that we have the 30th pick and not a pick or two earlier? Is it because of our strength of schedule or opponents records? I don't get it.

    It's because the Packers advanced father in the playoffs than the Colts and Cowboys.

    They put Bryant Gumbel in charge of the draft order.

    I noticed this too. It's actually why I logged into PF today. There is no way they bit on the franchise tag for Corey Williams, right?
    ... Right?

    YW. I was just thinking, they should have Gumbel announce the picks too...

    "And the Wisconsin Packers select....Luigi Manningham, WR, from the Michigan Cyclops."

    I saw Talib do some stuff, and man did he every look impressive. I think he ran a 4.47 40, better than what experts expected him to run.
