just want to lighten the mood a little before kickoff tomorrow with something i found while surfing the internet

[quote][color=#000000]22. Panthers[/color][color=#000000]
Best pick: QB Chris Weinke. This is exactly where TSN had Weinke slotted to go (44). It's a pick with great value for the Panthers. With his maturity, it's possible Weinke might start some as a rookie.[/color]
[color=#000000]
Worst pick: WR Steve Smith. He isn't ready to contribute at receiver, and it's doubtful he will wrestle the kickoff-return chores from Michael Bates. The Panthers spent a third-round pick on a punt returner.[/color]
[color=#000000]
Bottom line: Linebacker Dan Morgan gives the Panthers two things they lacked a year ago -- speed and playmaking ability on defense. Aside from Morgan and Weinke, this was a mediocre draft. Grade: C+[/quote][/color]

pretty much all of his worst picks ending up becoming all-pros

29. Colts

Best pick: S Idrees Bashir. The Colts have been unhappy with their secondary situation the past couple of years. Bashir, who covers plenty of ground in the deep third, will be an upgrade.

Worst pick: WR Reggie Wayne. He's a solid player, but there really isn't much upside here. The Colts need someone to complement Marvin Harrison; Chad Johnson was that guy.

I like the part where he said Matt Millen couldn't have done any better with the Lions draft.

Hurney did not draft this class. He was not hired as GM until 2002.

It's truly unfortunate, that a player of his caliber is stuck on a treadmill team.

5. Redskins

Best pick: CB Fred Smoot. He was the top cover player on some draft boards, so the Redskins were shocked he was still available in Round 2. It's possible that Smoot will be relegated to a dime role as a rookie.

Worst pick: QB Sage Rosenfels. Marty Schottenheimer was hoping he would land Chris Weinke but settled for Rosenfels. Adding a young arm is good, but Jesse Palmer and Mike McMahon are better.

Bottom line: The team had plenty of needs to address, but taking receiver Rod Gardner in the first round was a good decision. Often compared to Cris Carter, Gardner should fit well with QB Jeff George. Grade: A-


Fred Smoot? Rod Gardener? Jeff George? Roflllllololollllltrololplollilolllllllllll

That was good for the soul right there.

Kinda like Keith Brooking with the Falcons, eh? Good thing he got the hell out of there.

Although I hate the patroits this made me laugh..................


Worst pick: G Matt Light. He isn't a bad player, but the Patriots didn't need to trade up to get him. He will help fix some pass-protection problems on the interior, but was he worth wasting two picks?
