    Trade that blows up in Holmgrems face. He gambles that Graham will still be on the board. He probably would have without anyone trading up. Well no one thought that NE would be that team. Instead of taking a smaller gamble then the first one and trading down again he reaches for Stevens. Stevens may be better them the other two he is bigger and stronger. He just carries all the baggage. However I think all of that is in the past and Stevens has matured. Could have easily picked up another 3 or 4th round pick. Morris was a reach solid college back nothing sexy about him. Backup RB is a need but so is a return guy it would be nice if he had that talent but he does not. Should have used the picked better players that were available and positions of need. ANTON PALEPOI?? Projected 7th roung what the ???? Major reach Alex brown was available as was Dennis Johnson. Kris Richard was a reach could have taken a smaller guy in Craver. Looks like they addressed needs not best talent.

    My 2 teams I think did pretty good. Steelers and Rams. Antwann is good. Steelers like those fast wide outs. Should fit in nicely with Kordell and the passing style.

    Rams needed defense/linebackers. When don't they need them? Robert is a good pickup from UCLA (my college team). Rams like to draft from UCLA. Roman Phifer was one as I recall.

    Great pickups for my 2 teams. Hopefully the Rams can sign people. They always have that problem too. Should be an exciting year. I'm ready for training camp. I'm ready for some hitting and grinding and Monday Night Football and partying. :)

    I liked the Browns pick as well....boy did we ever need a running back.......some improvement on the offensive line will help to.

    I am very happy with the Bills draft and the trade for Drew Bledsoe. Ticket sales are brisk at One Bills Drive and optimism is at a very high level. The Bills look good on paper, now we have to see how it relates to on the field performance. The Bills have a press conference scheduled for 3:00 pm to introduce DB, etc.

    That was a nice trade the Bill's did to get Drew. :)

    I was happy with the Cleveland Browns picks as well, on paper it looks good, but we all know how these college kids can be a bust as well.

    I'm a Broncos fan, and couldn't be happier than they took Ashley Lelie from UH. I've seen this guy in person and what ever get thrown his way he find a way to catch it. Portis likely means Olandis Gary is gone, and is insurance for another T.D. injury.

    John,
    I take it that you are a Browns fan. I watched the Bills-Browns scrimmage at Edinboro State last year. Were you there for the scrimmage? My early info is that they are scrimmaging each other again this year at Rochester, New York. I don't think the date has been finalized yet.

    I like Dallas' draft a lot. A. Bryant could be 1st round like talent if he can put it together by working hard and staying out of trouble. He could be a steal in the 3rd round.

    I'm not fond with the Steeler's draft. That QB that they drafted for receiver is a big risk IMO.

    Dallas probably had the best draft of all the teams.

    I'm glad my Chicago Bears drafted the big OT. Brockermeyer was brutal sometimes and an All-Pro other times....so in consistent.

    I'm just thrilled we didn't take another loser quarterback in the 1st round like we did with Cade McClown a few years ago.

    I think Alex Brown, DE from FL was a S-T-E-A-L. I give us a B+.
