    we spend a lot of time at the top of the draft, with 4 picks in the 1st two rounds.

    How about names and reasons why for players in the 6th and 7th rounds
    we have seven picks. The draft could be made here.

    who's our next Eldelman, Givens, Gay (undrafted), Brady, Cassel?

    Many do a good job of suggesting such players. I guess someone can bump one of the past threads.

    Yanking your leg neighbor, threads get pushed off the front so quickly it's not a big deal. ;)

    I can't even guess players past the 3rd round let alone 6th or 7th. I'm sure they'll take a flyer on some random athlete at small school usa and turn him into a HoF TE

    I'd certainly be looking at Bryan Anderson and Tim Hiller.

    Depending on our TE activities I'd also look at someone like Hoomanawanui as well.

    Late round picks are like lottery tickets. You don't expect much, but sometimes you can hit on gems. And the more tickets you have, the better chance you have on hitting on 1 or 2 of them.

    Box I did check out Nut's thread, thanks for the recomendation. It did have some of what I was looking for. The kent Kid does sound interesting.

    Had a sensational Combine, and had a strong senior year despite the Louisville passing game being nothing short of a disgrace.

    Nice size at 6'2" 216lbs, well thought of by all accounts and apparently has a wonderful work ethic.

    Some of the players I liked as 6th/7th targets seem to be coming up in the world now. For instance, I wouldn't be surprised to see both Deji Karim and Mike Kafka gone before the 6th. Now I need new binkies. :mad:

    I'll stick with punter Brent Bowden, though.

    It's way too many picks. I'd trade our 6th and 7th and Phily's 7th for a future pick or a highish fifth. All the comp picks, save a punter, are bound for the PS.

    George Johnson could be a decent OLB project. Maybe a couple STers and/or WRs.

    Here are some guys who might be good 6-7 round values:

    Zoltan Mesko punter Michigan
    According to PFW- he's a good directional punter with a strong leg who has kicked in inclement weather.

    Taylor Price WR Ohio
    Good size 6' 201 with a 4.33 40 time

    Deji Karim RB Southern Illinois
    5'9" 197 4.47 40 time
    Also returns kicks.

    I also like John Skelton QB from Fordham. Great size at 6'5" 244 with a strong arm. Good possibility he won't be there in the 6th, but he's an interesting prospect.

    Taylor Price won't be around in the 7th. Some places have him as high as the late 2nd.

    Really, I haven't seen that. Well then he'd be an excellent value at 6 then wouldn't he.

    I'd be interested in reading about that. Can you point me in that direction do I can check it out?

    Just to set the record straight, Karim is actually 210 pounds, and ran a 4.37 - 4.43 at his pro day. So he's actually more faster and more powerful than you credit him. He's also my favorite RB in this class. :)

    As for late round gambles for greatness, what about Callahan Bright? SI.com did a piece on him last month that was pretty well received, but I don't remember us discussing him very much. When the SI story came out, I thought it was all hype, but apparently he had a pro day today, where at 6'2 1/2 and 342 pounds, he ran a 5.02 and hit 41 reps on the bench. That's pretty impressive, all things considered. Could be a great developmental lineman if the character issues work out. I'm of the opinion that he's actually more mature than most of the players in this draft: doing jail time as a young man and going through the stress of separation from his kid, plus putting in the hard work to re-earn football eligibility and get his life turned around tells me that he's learned from his mistakes and will be a hard working, motivated player at the next level. Pro-Day 3-24: Central Michigan/North Carolina State/UConn/Nevada

    Oh, and notice also in the blog that several coaches have a 3rd round grade on Easley. Maybe we'll have to pick him earlier than anticipated, but that's okay by me--I think he's gonna be great. :D

    Danny Batten might be worth a look at 7. 6'3" 248. Conversion project to OLB.

    I'm having the same problem.

    Block-first TEs are usually available. Someone mentioned Hoomanamanui, and I think he'd be a fine choice. Greg Boone (Va Tech) and Caz Piurowki (Fla St) being others. Also at TE Jeff Cottam (Tenn), who's spent significant time injured, but could end up an NFL starter. Scott Sicko (UNH) is starting to rise and may go in the 4th or 5th.

    Matt Dodge (ECU) is my punter of choice.

    I like FB/H-b Jack Corcoran of Rutgers to do a little lead blocking and some wiggle on screen passes, if Belichick wants to reprise the Heath Evans role.

    Small school linemen your game? Maine's Tyler Eastman and Fordham's Andrew "Alphabet Soup" Tyshovnytsky are good developmental tackle candidates, with Montana's Terran Hillesland and Richmond's Matt McCracken for the interior.

    I like taking Cal O-lineman Chet Teofilo and moving him back to the defensive side as a nose tackle. Martin Tevaseu is 329 lbs after dropping 100 in the last two years, and besides being a bit short could also contribute at the nose.

    ILB prospects Mike Johnson (North Alabama) and Chris McCoy (Middle Tennessee) have the measurables. LSU's Jacob Cutrera is under-bulked and Texas Tech's Brandon Sharp is under-tall, but they have ILB experience and could be worth a shot late.

    Small school pass-rushers include Dane Fletcher (Montana St) and Aaron Morgan (LA-Monroe). Eric Moncur (Miami) has the pedigree, but is short (6-2) and coming off injury. Ditto Matt Marcorelle (Delaware), except for the pedigree part.

    DBs Josh Morris (Weber St), Anthony Levine (Tennessee St), Jeromy Miles (UMASS), Mike Newton (Buffalo), Chinonso Echebelem (Tulane), & Antonio Baker (LA Tech)

    WRs EJ Morgan-Green (Morgan St), Juammoris Stewart (Southern), Kelton Tindal (Newberry), Terrell Hudgins (Elon), Duane Brooks (Stephen F. Austin), Eyad Salem (Illinois St), Dustin Woods (Miami OH)

    Finally, RB Andre Anderson (Tulane) and QBs Matt Nichols (Eastern Washington) and Andy Schmidt (Eastern Michigan).

    What? You asked.

    How about Nate Byham of Pitt? He lost his starting role to Dorin but he's supposed to be an excellent blocker.

    Fine blocker, and good hands. I don't expect him to be available in the 6th or 7th.
