    I know that many of your don't think we should judge rookie performances.

    I was glad to see Butler contributing immediately after being active instead of Wheatley.

    Butler will be a stud. Bank on it.

    He showed some serious quicks on that breakup he had. From the small sample we've seen he looks like he may be part of the solution at CB. I actually wanted him in the first round, I was thrilled to trade down and still get him.

    I agree. While he wasn't my choice at 34, I was really surprised that Belichick risked waiting until 41.

    Connecticut native doubly excited to see him do well and think he really will.

    Donald Brown from UCONN, however, is now on my poopy-head list, right after Manning, P. :snob:

    He wasn't my choice at 23 or 34, but I think he could have been justified at either spot. The Phins should have taken him at 25 over Vontae Davis. We were lucky to get him at 41, I agree.

    In the words of Peter Tosh: Yes I.

    It's not very often you get a player with his hips, footwork, acceleration, hand technique, and ball skills in the frame that he has. It's also not very often you get a player like that at 41, especially in a weak draft year. I think it's going to be between him and Vollmer when we look at this draft three years from now and evaluate who was the best player to come out of this one.

    By the way, I got the chance to review some of the Jets/ Houston game....our homie was on the field. He looked exceptional.

    Loved the pick... let's see if he's a keeper. We could really use backfield help long-term.

    Gary Kubiak reportedly was pleased with Barwin, despite the overall poor performance by Houston.

    I agree about Butler and Vollmer being future studs. I'm not sure yet about Brace - he could be a nice widebody, or a real difference maker, I'm not sure which. Chung will be fine, but I would have preferred Barwin.

    I'm just liking the secondary period. Should be interesting to see the young guys grow and contribute more down the stretch.

    Um, while I assumed Butler would see playing time regardless, it might be worth noting that Wheatley was inactive with a knee injury.

    My bad
    I had recalled that folks were surprised to see Wheatley was inactive. I had forgotten that he was last on the injury report as questionable with a knee injury.
