    I can't find anybody who looks all that exciting, except perhaps yet-another-LB.

    There was an attractive-seeming OL, but he was taken a couple of spots AFTER O'Connell, so if he really was the next Logan Mankins, in Beoli I trust to have taken him instead.

    I really want a backup NT and a punter, but based on how the draft played out, I suspect 3rd round wouldn't have been good value for either.

    Wilhite is the one choice who underwhelms me, but I haven't found a woulda coulda shoulda CB I'd enthusiastically put in his place.

    Actually, my scenerio would have started with our 2nd round pick. I would have picked Gardner instead of Wheatley (who I'm warming up to !), and then in the third, I would have gone Connor LB (with the pick we sent to SD), Justin King CB, and then the QB O'Connell if they feel they would have HAD to have him.

    Gardner
    Conner
    King
    O'Connell

    For some reason I think that would have been better than

    Wheatley
    Crable
    O'Connell

    But only time will tell. I am starting to warm up to this draft (big time !! In Bill we Trust), and can't wait to see these guys in training camp !!
