RE: Kiper

I think the deepest positions in this years draft are tightend, linebacker, and fullback. Each of those positions you can name 10 plus guys right off the bat that deserves to go the first day (okay maybe not fullback cause they never go on the first day). Too bad we have Hilton and so many other tightends... I'd love to add one from this year's draft. I think no matter what, we'll come out with a very good linebacker. It's too deep. I don't think even our front office can screw this draft up.

I don't see why so many college analyst and scouts like Whitehurst so much... I think Jacobs is better than both he and Croyle.
