    Ted Thompson just owns.

    - Derek Sherrod ranked #25 prospect. We got him at #32.
    - Randall Cobb ranked #49 prospect. We got him at #64
    - Alex Green ranked #90 prospect. We got him at #96.
    - Davon House ranked #56 prospect. We got him at #131.
    - DJ Williams ranked #124 prospect. We got him at #141.
    -Ricky Elmore ranked #193 prospect. We got him at #197.
    - Lawrence Guy ranked #180 prospect. We got him at #233.

    So happy we stayed true to the boards instead of getting excited based on pressure or hype during the round. If we don't get A+ on this draft, idk who else can.

    Yeah, thats a good way of looking at it. I have to say because of the hype i was expecting to get Brooks Read and once Cam heyward fell i hoped we could pick him up but looking back on the pick ups retrospectively we did very well. Im excited about Randall Cobb, Mcarthy will draw up some good plays for him.

    You guys think we'll go D for a few picks now? Gotta think we would want at least one more D-line...

    Regardless... Our offense is going to be straight silly, in a good way

    yeah i think we should grab a LB, CB, and DL. DL i would say is our biggest need, which isnt glarring but its there. we have sheilds at CB, i think he will be a good player for us for years to come. we have tons of LB. whatever we take besides DL will be strictly depth.

    Right now, i am most excited about Cobb and the potential for big plays and edge of my seat excitement. However ask me again the first time a starting tackle (Clifton or Buluga) goes down and we insert Sherrod - much like we did with Buluga last season, and not miss a beat.

    I don't think we'll get an A+ simply because many of the "experts" don't like the Green pick. I don't think they understand how well he fits our offense. We like to run a lot of spread sets and as wood chipper said in another thread, he comes from a spread offense in Hawaii. Oh well, its an A+ to us.

    I am not certain about some of the picks either, but I don't know the team, the needs, and the upside of each player, but I know success when I see it, and I have seen TT succeed.
    Go Pack! Go Ted!
