that mean 11 guys? geez

as far as positions - really got no qualms about anything (maybe about the corner - but we always seem to need a decent corner).

I bet we score at least a B+ with our picks (according to the raters) I'm thinking A-

I personally like all our picks - 2 OLBers for competition or even a starting job, a NT and a DE for depth and 2 Oline guys so help secure our money man ... and best of all 2 of the best backs in the draft ... actually be anxious to see what our run game will look like this year.

I think a lot of people are going think we reached a bit for the two O- linemen and many may question the wisdom of taking two RBs, even if they are the two best in the draft, and two WRs. I'm thinking a B or even B- might be more likely. That's not what I would grade them at personally. I can't give a grade based on the players themselves but like you, I have no real problems with the positions addressed.

What kills me is that the vikings are going to get A's from everybody. I just hate that.

I had no qualms about getting David Bakhtiari when they did. JC Tretter could have been a reach. You just never know. I assumed they will move inside and strengthen the G and C positions. At least I hope so. It does make me worry a little more about Sherrod's health.

Even though it wasn't a large need I expected a WR. Two was a little surprising but it doesn't really matter who they get int he 7th round. It is no surprise if they don't make it and always nice when they do.

Couple of beefy boys on the DL was expected and it will help. The OLB was a little unexpected unless they are a part of the new bigger stronger theme. I can't say much about them.

Ted likes DBs. I don't know if Hyde is going to line up as a cb or a s.

Pre draft I had hoped for Franklin. When they picked up lacy I was slightly disappointed. He is probably the better overall RB so I figured that was that. To have gotten both was great. And yes I know that the trade up was due to trading on day 2. They could still have done it with their own 5th and 6th picks. I am not sure Ted would have done it but it was still possible.

I'm a little underwhelmed by the LBs (out of pure ignorance/lack of info on my part), and really, really wanted Jesse Williams or Jonathan Jones at NT. The 2 WRs were interesting picks, especially with James Jones' contract up after this season. I like those OL more and more from what I've seen on video and read. The NT we drafted looks way more like a prototypical 3-4 DE, ready to rock. The CB looks awesome on film. Really great!

Jones, Lacy, Franklin. Stellar.

I'm thrilled initially with this draft. Thrilled. We will see completely in two or three years just how good this was. Maybe, more than 4 or 5 make immediate, significant contributions this year - a figure I find amazing. We'll see.

Jones, Lacy and Franklin will be contributors right away. EDS maybe the week 1 starting C but that may not last long with Bakhtiari if he can move inside. All in all there's a lot to like here with immediate help as well as depth and development projects.

Yep. Maybe some special teams help. I can see Boyd getting the chance to give Pickett a breather every once in a while.
