I can see where they are coming from on a lot of the Underrated picks, especially Will Blackmon. He's a kid that I think will be good for some team.

I can't see how they call Hodge overrated. Just b/c he didn't put up great numbers at the combine? Mike Mamula did. Just say his name to an Eagles fan and you'll get swung on. Hodge led his team in tackles, was a leader in the locker room, plays like a madman and overshadowed Greenway in some folks eyes. And the size arguement is bogus too. I remember a LB that got knocked due to size and went inthe mid 20s...lots of teams still wish they took Ray.

( I am not aiming this at you BI, just the writers of the list. Thanks for the post though. )

I love Klopfenstein, and if we didn't have so many other holes, I would love to see us snag him. He's got great hands, good speed, and apparently is an improving blocker. If anybody saw the Houston bowl game two years ago against UTEP, you'll understand why I'm so high on this guy. 5 catches for 134 yards and a TD including a 74 yard circus catch where he bobbled it, got it, and then outran the UTEP DBs.

I'm also glad to see Blackmon on there. I said in a previous post that I'd like to see us take a chance on him if he is there later in the draft, maybe late Day 1, even though I don't think he will be.

Very interesting to see Kyle Williams on the OVERrated part. I thought he might be on the underrated part. I really like Kyle Williams, and not just because I'm a Tiger fan. I think he's got a great motor, and even though he's kinda short and stocky for a DT, I think he uses his strength to his advantage. He also has an amazingly quick first step. I can't remember how many times I saw him bursting into the backfield without being touched. I think he's very good and I'd be happy to see him in Black and Gold because of his great work effort.

Not surprised to see Thomas Howard on that list even though his athletic skills are very enticing...
