    Saban gave his pre draft press conference. The video is on the phins' official site. If you just picture BB's head on those narrow shoulders you get some interesting insight into the Pats' draft process. Saban talks about how he got all his scouting parameters for players from BB in Cleveland and shows the scouting sheet to the press. He talks about scouting Aeneas Williams for BB and also Orlando Brown back in the 90s. (or it was Pat Hll who discovered Orlando Brown at South Carolina State). Mentions Brady as the example of a late rd steal. Recommended viewing for the draft-hungry like myself...

    A story on Pioli from the past year discussed seeing him on film being knocked tail over teakettle by Orlando in a blocking drill where Orlando wanted to make sure he made a good impression. :D
