if it was up to me, 1d trae into the 1st and get brandon graham, then either jeremy williams or mardy gilyard in the 2nd. gilyard would probably be the better choice since he can catch and return kicks.

lucky to grab a slot WR slash return man in the second in a supposed deep draft. I'm not a Clemson fan

every short WR is going to get that tag..

And every short WR is gonna be proclaimed the next Steve Smith/exception-to-the-rule by people on this board. Luckily there isnt a 5'9 middle LB like Buster Davis or Jon Abbate in this draft, otherwise people would be wanting us to take him in the second round because he'll be "the next Sam Mills".

And for the record, I dont mind us drafting Ford, just not as our first pick based on post-season workouts and an all-star game. Maybe it was due to poor QB play, not sure, but i remember watching Ford at Clemson and not being all that impressed.

It was trust me I have watched almost every Game since he has been a Tiger and our QB play has never been more then average to above average (I really like Kyle Parkers potential though). And the playcalling under Bowden really sucked at times.

He has tremendous play making ability both in receiving and kick returns. I would love him to be our 1st pick just on his kick returning ability alone since I actually think that is our biggest need not WR. Its not just what he showed me this week but what I watched on Saturdays.

He impressed me even more with his consistent separation this week against some of the best CB's in the draft. He is just one of those rare players that impresses during the season and off-season.

Guys that impressed me:

Geno Atkins: I have heard good things about him all week. Constantly getting penetration from the 3 tech position. Well that continued yesterday. He got in the backfield or disrupted the play almost every time he was on the field. On the 1st north drive he drew an obvious holding call on one of the best G prospects Mike Iupati that negated a TD. 2 plays later made a tackle after being block in the back (didn't get called) and if he missed the RB Bell he was gone. Well worth a 4th or 5th round pick where hes projected.

Joique Bell RB: I have had my eye on him all week. What I liked most about him was his work ethic. After every play this week in practice if he didn't get tackled (which isn't supposed to happen) he would run the ball all the way to the endzone. Sound like anyone we know? He made a lot of nice run with some power and showed good agility.

The entire North D: Just draft them all please. I mean I want that Dline, there entire LB core, and most of there DB's. I was drooling over all the good prospects. Weatherspoon and Washington will both be beast. I wouldn't be upset at all if we tendered TD with a 1st let him sign with someone and draft Washington. Just wait he will be a beast at WLB in a 4-3 scheme. I would love to get Brandon Graham he was unstopable last night. And what is awesome is he is outstanding at both pass and rush defense the perfect DE (if he was 6'3" he would be a top 10 pick right now).

Others that impressed (2nd watching):

Jeremy Williams WR Tulane- Showed great body position to place his body between the QB and the DB covering him. Showed good speed and hands. Ran a reverse broke a tackle and did a beautiful job of setting up his blocks (if LSU's Black his own blocker hadn't ran him out of bounds he could have gotten easily 10 more yards).

Andre Roberts WR Citadel - I was watching him close all week because I knew how great a playmaker he was (burning us at Clemson on multiple occasions) and the fact that he is an excellent punt returner. He showed me an ability to get open deep and work the middle and take the big hits. He went up in the middle one play snag the ball knowing he was going to get decked and held onto the ball reminded me of Smitty a little.

He has been straight up unblockable all week and last night. Wouldn't mind it a bit considering I would wager Price will be gone by the 2nd and IMO we need a good penetrating UT.

Senior Bowl in Review

Cam Thomas was a nightmare for opposing offensive linemen this week. The strength and power that he showed on the interior of the line was extremely impressive and he showed the type of brute force that scouts look for in the type of fire-hydrant defensive tackle that teams like to plug on the interior of their offensive line. Thomas was another player who had a mid-late round draft grade coming into the week but leaves with a third-to-fourth round grade.
