    From NFLfans.com:

    This is a very good pick. He will provide great depth while learning from Vrabel and Thomas at OLB.

    Leading candidate to have tons of pranks pulled on him in training camp: Michigan rookie has to work with and learn from Vrabel (Ohio State) everyday.

    Hahaha

    Love this pick

    I wouldn't like him on a 43 team either. There are relatively few 3-4 teams. This is a great match of player and system. He is ready to contribute.

    The master plan is taking shape, now look for some interior lineman who need a year or two of seasoning...

    He looks skinny for 243. Mr. Wojcik should be able to produce some magic with him and bulk him up a little. Solid pick.

    Solid pick, looks like he can rush the passer so I'm happy.

    He looks like Gilbert Arenas, lol

    I really like this pick. I was thinking Cliff Avril, but I guess he is dropping like a rock. Even Mel Kiper doesn't have Avril as his top prospect left. When we picked Crable, Mel had Avril as the 10th best player left, wow, is he dropping or what ?

    Crable is a beast, I always liked him, and noticed him a lot when I watched Michigan. Very Good choice !

    He and Pierre Woods are best friends IIRC. High upside guy to (eventually) replace Vrabel on the strong side.

    90 total tackles, 28.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles in one season is very good production folks. I had Avril rated higher, but I like the pick.

    No one else has picked him. Maybe teams just don't think that the value is there for him yet.

    Boy,are the scouting reports all over the place on this guy.

    Pretty much the definition of a high ceiling OLB pass rushing project.

    Me likes. I'm no personnel expert, but in terms of what I wanted this is a beautiful draft. +1 for Diego's 2nd next year.

    I am looking forward to rooting for their dissension and demise.:D

    Finally, some competiton at linebacker. Still a Woods fan, but it's time to earn your future.

    avril just went, but I love the Crable pick. I'm liking how this is turning out... plus we got an extra 2nd next year...although it'll probably be a low round 2nd.

    Is this not the draft we have all been waiting for? I don't question for a second the Braintrust's choices. I'm just happy that they are finally drafting for NEEDS at two of my favorite positions - LB and CB.

    It's intriguing to think of where these guys will be in 3 years. For the first time in years, I am thinking of what early draft picks are going to be for us in 3 years, not what they are going to product for us next year. The irony is that this years draft class may actually yield a player that *earns* a starting job in his first year, at least on third down. One of these three guys are going to make an impact this year, I can feel it.
