    2)was surprised Kareem Brown was available at 4

    3)Rogers will play linebacker

    4)Richardson was a surprise at 6 can play corner or safety good depth

    5)lua was his sleeper pick compared him to cassell

    6)all the o lineman are developmental type players

    I love the Lua pick. He looks the part to me. I know that Claridge, Mincey and, to an extent, Kleko have been busts, but Lua looks the part. I think he will be a major part in this defense a few years from now.

    With Meriweather we finally have a center fielder type safety which we have been lacking the last two years. He can lay the wood too.

    He can absolutely play in the box as well. He is very physical and loves to hit, But I am looking forward the most to seeing him cover the middle of the field from the likes of Dallas Clark etc. He is a very well rounded safety.

    We really miss Rodney's blitzing when he's out, it'll be good to have another good blitzing Safety.

    O man i didnt even know about this. Dammit.

    Cool work and thanks.

    Anything else of interesting info?

    Did he go into detail about any of the players you just mentioned?

    Will Rogers play ROLB or LOLB? Project guy? Strengths weaknesses and how they view him?

    Richardson i know is a project CB but would love more info.

    In what way did he compare Lua to Cassel? In the terms of great player not being able to start because of even better play in front of him?

    Why was he surprised Kareem was there at 4? He was a BOOM or Bust type player. Round 4 seems about right.

    A good player not able to start because of a great player in front of him.
    If Lau is Cassell-like I'll feel better about the LB situation. We'll find out in TC.

    lau didnt play because the guys in front of him are suppose to be top 10 picks,thought brown wouldnt be there at4,oldenburg is athletic, smart compred him to tom ashwoth very smart, richardson came reccomended by weiss, as was elgin by ferentz, compared rogers to vrabel very smart and athletic, got the feeling most of these guys are practice squad types
