Wonder if the Mods can create two threads for the general discussion, one for new generation twitter fans, who tip off the pick in advance, and one for the old schoolers, who want to hear the pick first from the podium. I see the merit of both the old and new school thinking.
Little bit of angst yesterday from those uphappy the picks were being tipped off almost five minutes before the commish made the call.
I was pissed Maiocco was tweeting the picks before announced, I refuse to look on his twitter account tonight and tomorrow.
That wasnt Maiocco and their fault, for some reason the the TV feed was behind
damn, I wonder why the feed is behind then.
Towards the end of the night it looked like they fixed it
Kiper and half of those guys who set up "BPA" rankings take money from agents to hawk the agent's guy. knbr was talking about it this morning. If Mel said my grandma was the best ILB avaiable half the smucks reading it would think it was gospel.

Bowers fell and was expected to be a 1st rounder, interesting that Branch fell as well this year....are the Clemson guys overrated?
Bowers fell because he was injured and some teams had him completely off the board because of his knee. Bowers was supposed to be a top 5-10 pick, and the injury scared off the teams. Branch will likely get picked up early in 2nd. He was supposed to go in 20s, so it's not really a big fall.
Cordy Glenn falling completely out of round 1 when projected to go in top 15 is the one that really stands out.

I think they are pretty sure that they have the starting RG on the team now. I say this because RG was the only position where a highround pick could start right away. I'm loving it because we can take whoever we want and not get jumped for the pick.
I hope you're right, but I won't jump to that conclusion just yet. You can find a starting G in 2nd or 3rd round.
