    Of course... Mayo... again

    SI.com's 2008 Revised NFL Draft - Don Banks - SI.com

    He's not quiet as kind in hindsight with the Jets and Dolphins.

    I'm having a tough time figuring out where in the first round Banks sees Vernon Gholston and his $32 million contract ($21 of which is guranteed) landing.

    I knew he would have the Pats with Mayo again.

    This guy must have not had anything to write about this week, so he does this. How does it make sense to do a re-draft of the draft class that hasn't even finished their rookie seasons?

    I don't think anyone, including Banks, takes it too seriously. But it's just fun to speculate about what might have been. And his thoughts about Mayo are dead-on, regardless of the timing of them.

    For the record, here's the quote:

    :rocker:

    FWIW, he only has three picks going to the team that originally drafted them--Mayo, and Carolina's two picks (Stewart and Otah).

    SI has done the redo draft for year, even before Banks started to do it. It is one of their yearly features.

    I do love how he has Mike Mamula....um.... Vernon Gholston dropping out of the first round. Personally, he doesn't even look like a good late second day pick at this point. With Bryan Thomas playing like crap, it is a testiment to how bad Gholston must be struggling with the 3-4 defense if he still isn't seeing the field all that much and is basically an average special teams player at best.
