No. But it was actually some Mormon mission in Africa that sent him to the States for Track and Field

I'm concerned they'll take Fluker.

Clowns picking a DE ? Mingo ? Wow...

Ok so We will not need to even bother knowing their coach's name. Another one gone in a year...

Yeah. He's kind of a liability at the point of attack against the run.

Another guy I am glad is gone so we don't draft him. To me he's a tweener

Cardinals take OG Jonathan Cooper from NC.

I don't care what Mel says, taking a Guard with the 7th overall pick is a REACH

They could take a G... Not a Tackle. Let's see. I hope that now from Buffalo to #15 they rush on QBs... Just to improve our chances...

the Bills trade down with the Rams who with the 8th pick take:
WR Tavon Austin from WV

you can't deny his speed, but his size makes him a questionable pick this high.

I think 17 is too high for a guard.
I'm hoping for a CB

Rams trading to pick Austin. At first I was happy. Several Mock Drafts predicted Vaccaro to the Rams. BUT WR is also a position of need for us... So overall ... I'm confused...

Hammer what's your take ?

I like his speed, but he's like 170 pounds so duribility becomes a question.
not a top 10 pick to me.
I think he would have been a decent pick at 17 for us...except Ben isn't real accurate so I'm not sure he could hit a 5'9" guy with a kinda weak verticle jump number.

still his speed would have replaced wallace and stretch the field.

I also would like to see that run on QB's now, but don't think it will happen until late 1st round/ early 2nd.

Damn...
Jets take Alabama CB Dee Milliner

was hoping he might fall due to shoulder injury.


plus I don't want to see that run on CBs start just yet

Titans take Alabama Guard Chance Warmack.

He's a hell of a football player, but a guard in the top 10 ....sorry I just can't ok that

chargers take Alabama offensive lineman D.J. Fluker.

Is he a Tackle or a Guard?
If he can play Tackle (at a high level) then it's a decent pick, but if he's a guard he was picked high.

I'm glad to see Fluker off the board.
He'sa good run blocker, so i think the Steelers would have been looking at him as a RT and I'm not sure he can handle NFL speed rushers, which would have meant seeing Ben in the dirt more.

Happy for you that he is gone... Our pick is coming... Anyway I can see why nobody is on the site. One of the most boring draft ever.

We are the exciting players ? QB ? WR ? I think the first QB will be Buffalo ( Nassib ?) And good chances it will be the only

People come here to bitch about what the Steelers do. Our traffic will pick up right after the steelers pick.

Raiders take a CB. DJ Hayden from Houston.
I'm actually glad to see him go also because his health issue scares me. So the Raiders who really need a CB taking the one I didn't want makes me happy

I just hope that we do not take Floyd. We have wasted enough picks on the line and with LeBeau he won't see the field for a couple of years. Wonder why he is falling so much. A lot of drafts were high on him ( #3 for Maycock )

JETS take DT Sheldon Richardson from Missouri.
Not a huge need position for us, so I'm glad to get a pick closer to the Steelers choice.

If we take a DL in the 1st round again, I will lose my shit.
(so it'll probably happen)

Cluster of DL going now.

Star Lotulelei from Utah goes to panthers.

again not a huge need for steelers, plus heart issue at combine makes him not a good risk in 1st round in my book
