Been a long time..well..never since I haven't been excited by the draft. This year has me with severe case of 'meh'.

Austin falling to us might be exciting...BUT how many WR picked in first round work out? How many WR have we drafted that have worked out period?

I'd be happy with some solid players that can give starters competition. DB/CB (whats difference between DB & CB?), and safety are 'needs' in my book.

Well get your a$$ in gear son. We got a helluva draft and possible turning point to this franchise ahead.

Get ready and have some joy. I understand your feelings but go to the grocery store. Stockpile the beer and brats and munchies for this weekend. :)

Honestly, I'm just excited for the end of the really boring portion of the offseason. Almost none of these prospects particularly excite me.

having one of the best talent evaluators in the league making the picks makes this exciting for me.

This is one of my most exciting drafts. First time we in a position to get just about anybody we want, and not pingeoned hole to one position. Plus unlike many people think about this draft I think these prospects have the ability to be an elite player one day.

THIS is why I don't want Tavon Austin.

Well you can't just stop drafting wide receivers in the first because it hasn't worked out too well for us in the past.

So we should just forget about a receiver in the 1st? Just keep taking bottom tier guys in the late rounds or sign guys through FA?

We just been bad at drafting a receiver or either our coaches just suck at grooming receivers. Does not make us stay away from a receiver in the 1st or 2nd.

This draft class isn't very exciting. I just don't see Tavon Austin as being the missing piece we need. I say trade down if possible. The Hurney home-run pick just isn't there at 14 with this draft class.

You should be, we finally have someone with a significant background in talent evaluation calling the shots.
