Gator, I think you may be going a little far with your estimation of the talent. You\'re dropping off talent at a rate than means players selected in the second half of this year\'s third round normally wouldn\'t even be drafted. That\'s ridiculous. I think most analysts are saying that the TOP talent is not as deep as usual. So a normal mid third rounder may be selected in this year\'s lat second round... not a normal 7th rounder will be taken in the late 3rd round. C\'mon. Now you guys are just taking this too far.

I mean, by your logic Craver is an early second rounder this year. Bentley goes at number 15. That\'s ridiculous. Listen to yourself. The talent is not as deep as previous years, but it\'s not exponentially worse. If that\'s the case maybe I\'ll go declare myself elligible. I could be the Saints 7th round pick the way you\'re talking.

It\'s probably true that there are only 13-15 players with first round talent. Not so sure that they will be taken with the picks #1-15. I expect the first round to be pretty wild, not only with trades, but also with the players selected. And suddenly some good players just fall to you. The big wildcard to me is Jimmy Kennedy. While Robertson and some others have produced some buzz, the only thing you hear about Kennedy, who had been the number 1 ranked DT until two weeks ago, is a reluctance to select him. Minnesota may take him, but they are not very excited about it. With his slide, some of the other DTs could slide as well.
