    OK, on to pick No. 97.

    So far we have:

    Larry English
    Tyson Jackson
    Louis Delmas
    Brian Robiskie
    Jonathan Luigs
    ????


    I figure it'll be Cadogan or Levitre since they've dropped as I expected. Here are the best available according to the rankings on draftcountdown.com and profootballweekly.com.

    Andre Brown or Chip Vaughn(can never have enough safeties) would be my pick.

    Looking ahead to round 4 hopefully Jason Phillips or Scott McKillop will be there.

    As Bakes mentioned, Andre Brown and Chip Vaughn would be solid. But James Casey would be a steal at 97. NFP gave him to us at 89, and I think he would be decent value at 58. Most versatile offensive player in the draft, and the replacement for Ben Watson after this year as our #1 TE.

    I'm dead set against taking a TE lol it must be the Felger in me. Then again I recall saying we should take Shawn Nelson with the previous pick in this guys mock. :singing:

    But if we get a TE/FB, don't we want one who can block. I don't think Casey was ever asked to block at Rice.

    Bear Pascoe -TE-Fresno St.- This is the kid that makes sense for Pat's . He can block. Probable round 4.

    I think you best bet is to trade down a bit:D

    I like the Chip Vaughn pick but Gerald Cadogan might get some consideration at this spot. He has long arms and size to play OT and is very smart so I might pull the trigger at DB or OL on this one.

    We have a classic blocking TE in Chris Baker. Casey is more of an H-back type, though he did play some at fullback at Rice and isn't inept as a blocker. I'm not sure I see us keeping Ben Watson after his contract is up at the end of this year, and Casey would be a much more reliable pass catching threat.

    I think it was the Texans beat writer for the Houston Chronicle who mentioned interviewing Casey and being told how he'd been put through a number of blocking drills at his Pro Day, a novel experience for him.

    Even though we already have Luigs who can play OG, I am going to say Levitre. There are 3 OGs in contract years so the depth is necessary. Cadogan is not the type of OL BB likes. He's smart, but he is not as physical as the other OL on the team. If I had to choose someone outside of these two it would be Chip Vaughn. He would really push Tank Williams as backup SS.

    I really like Andre Brown as a nifty luxury pick here, but hard to argue with Vaughn. And take Jason Phillips next round, ok? :)

    With them already taking Luigs, I would have to go Chip Vaughn. Even with Delmas chosen earlier.
