    Day 1 was a luxury draft day. Day 2, I can only agree with 1 maybe 2 of the picks. Time for a change in the FO....

    I love the Mendenhall, Sweed, Davis, and Hills picks..after that it's whole lot of nothing

    We went this entire draft and didn't even touch the defensive line, an area that was clearly exposed in 2007. Thanks Colbert !!!

    yea major disapointment on day 2. After a great day 1 i was hoping we'd walk out with a complete solid draft.Picking all those weapons on day 1 and then not picking any protection is kinda pointless.

    "He's running around there, running his mouth, doing all that, but if you watch him on film and really look, where was Ray Lewis? He was nowhere to be found. I could have tackled the water boy and had as many tackles as him. He didn't do nothing today. He's all mouth. When you talk like that, that's what happens: You get hit in the mouth. He's over there crying now, thinking about what went wrong. You got your *** whipped, that's what." ~ Peazy

    I agree with your post.....I don't usually grade a draft right away though....

    But Mendenhall, Sweed were great value picks in the first two rounds....I really like Davis and he will be the next former college DE to play OLB in our system and he will excel.....just like the others....

    The Tony Hills pick is interesting...He could be a solid player it just seems he can't stay healthy...Plus we needed an OT...

    Dixon, Humpal and Mundy were complete wastes.....

    Based on the layout of the poll it is a D for me. Mendenhall and Sweed are huge. We couldn't address our needs because the players weren't there. Someone in charge in our front office needs to take responsibility and explain the second day. The 5th round pick was a complete embarrassment. Is Dixon 4th on the depth chart at Q.B., 5th or 6th at W.R., 4th or 5th at R.B.? What? Why? After that pick I'm suprised we didn't draft a back up punter with our last pick!

    They went from a B+ after day one to a C- after day two in typical Colbert fashion.
