    Jake Kirkpatrick

    Just three I happened to see that some on our board were high on. I liked Kirkpatrick as a late round sleeper.

    All very recognizeable names from the draft. Evidently all 3 were drafted low for a reason and it turns out they didn't fit the bill of what the teams were looking for. To think Black and Beal were considered third rounders up until the last month before the draft. Kirkpatrick happened to be one of the best centers in the weakes draft class at that position in years. That isn't saying much.

    Mardy Gilyard from 2010 draft was cut too.

    A lot of people wanted a WR after the 2009 season of Galloway/Aiken/Stanback as our #3 WR's, and Gilyard was a fairly popular guy on the board. I believe he was one of Box O Rox's binkies that a lot of others took a liking to.

    Gilyard will probably make it to another team quick. Of all the positions in football isn't WR the one where most agree it is a 2 to 3 year learning curve? Kind of suprised by the cut but then again that team brought in a ton of wrs off the street and they must of felt some of those guys were simply better than Gilyard.
