Whats your biggest suprise pick in this years draft?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Tebow before Clausen and Clausen falling out of the first round. Though Robinson graded out as a bottom of the first round guy, he still was pretty shocking. Jacksonville passing on Williams for the Cal DT was surprising too....

Denver trading back to get Tebow; I thought some team would brainfart and geaux Tebow in Round 1, but to trade back in to get him?!?

Otherwise the Jacksonville pick really surprised me; they could have traded back 8-10 spots, swapped their 5 for a 3 kind of thing, and still nabbed Alualu...

I'm still trying to warm up to Robinson this morning .... this has to mean that Sharper is gone and Jenkins to FS cause there is no way that Loomis would draft a dime corner in the first

So why did the Saints spend a 4th on Chip Vaughn in 2009? Currently Vaughn is behind Sharper and Young.

Raiders pick a headscratcher again. I bet Oakland fans hope that Al Davis steops down sometime soon so they can become a Pro Team again.

Tebow - eck!! I am so darned tired of hearing about him. I am just glad he went somewhere that I do not have to hear about him every 5 minutes!!

The Lions appear to be doing it right for once...I guess I'm surprised they didn't take a WR with their first pick...again...

Re: Whats your biggest suprise pick in this years draft?

its tebow pick for me. it the good ole boy pick like back when we took danny worstsell. our pick of robinson don't tell everyone that arnoux is ready for that olb position. remember he was touted as being better than the no# 1 pick last year of seattle.
