From NFL.com

ANALYSIS
Positives: Long-limbed athlete with wide hips, big bubble, thick thighs and calves, low body fat and broad shoulders … Well-proportioned with big bones and the frame to carry at least another 20 pounds of bulk … Power-oriented blocker who has developed an aggressive nature … Smooth and sudden coming out of his stance and has above-average lateral range … Maintains balance on the move and is very fluid when having to redirect and recover working in-line … Plays with a flat back and is very effortless unwinding out of his stance … Sometimes, he is late off the ball, but he compensates with his above-average lateral range … Plays with very good leverage and locks on to the defender with force … Has exceptional balance and gets to the collision point instantly when working on the edge in pass protection … Displays the hand punch to immediately shock the defender and is very sudden when redirecting and recovering inside … In 2004, he showed marked improvement in picking up stunts and the edge rush … Also has improved greatly in his ability to chip and land when working in the second level … Shows very good explosion off the snap, getting into the defender with force and suddenness. He is quick to gain advantage, displaying proper knee bend a flat back to unwind out of his stance with ease … Shows the ability to mirror and slide, doing a good job of redirecting … Displays the ability to play over his feet, as he is rarely on the ground, doing a solid job of using his hands to tie up his opponent … Can easily roll his hips, which allows him to generate explosion on contact … Physical striker on the move, doing a nice job of adjusting to recover when beaten … Has the ability to be a very effective cut and reach blocker when he plays with alertness (sometimes gets hesitant, making him look slow to engage) … Has the blend of power and quick feet needed to lock out and get in front on pulls … Possesses impressive lateral range and unwinds out of his stance with ease to clear the rush lanes … Quick to chip and land on his targets when working in the second level … His ability to redirect and suddenly change direction makes him dominate at the collision point … Flashes a strong punch and lock-out ability … He has enough quickness to recoil and recover inside and brings his hands up properly to shock and jolt, especially when on the move.
Negatives: Still works more on instinct and needs to grasp the mental aspect of the game better, but he has made steady progress since moving over to the offense as a freshman … While he plays with good aggression, he is slow to digest plays, at times, making him look sluggish getting off the snap … Struggled in the classroom and does not seem to grasp the mental aspect of the game, compensating with his quickness and power to get the job done … Can get a little sloppy with his blocking angles upon departure, but plays with good leverage to neutralize the defender … Will get a little inconsistent with his punch (takes lazy sets), but he gets to the collision point very effectively … When he does not recognize the defensive scheme, he is slow to engage the defender … Slow with his angle of departure and can be frozen by defensive line games … Will sometimes miss the count and move too early, resulting in costly penalties … Needs to get stronger and more physical in his game … Is prone to overextend in pass protection, especially when facing a double move.
OT was a big need. There are still a lot of LBs who will be available with #40. This is not the end, but DJ was there! Damn.

Perhaps we are still looking to trade Howard for a late 1st rounder.

At the cost of #13 for our #16 and a 3rd next year, the trade wasn't a loss for us.

Still... a RT instead of an LT seems a bit off. I guess Stinch is never going to be a player.

On the other hand, Gandy, Holland, Bentley, Mayberry, Barron. Damn!

I\'m not sad about this pick..we didn\'t give up much and at worst got the best OT in the draft this year...also a really good linebacker isgoing to fall to us in the second.

now lets\' trade howard and the others and improve that d....

Well, all the impact LBs and all the impact CBs are gone. No reason to move Howard now. I guess people can be happy we\'re going to keep him.

Someone is going to get a major steal in A. Rogers now.

i don\'t know, when you think about brooks running for his life against better defenses, is it really a bad choice? it was a need, and we addressed it.......... get over it, it\'s done........
