    I dunno. I'm not a fan.
    Fair enough.

    I only remember watching 2 USC games. 1 game he was on, the other he was lost in the mix.

    I like that Rivers will be able to play OLB and MLB. With Thurman being reinstated, and now drafting Rivers, things are looking up for the LB corp.

    I would have thought the Pats moved down, thinking Rivers would be available @ 10.
    Nah, the Pats don't want rookie LBs. Maybe a DE they can convert, but not this high.

    But, of course, they do exactly that. Because as soon as you think you know what they're going to do, they do the opposite.

    I only like the Rivers pick if the Bengals can get Laws or another good DT in the 2nd.
    If not then the Bengals didn't do much at all to fix the DT problem.

    I'd like them to take a DT there, but taking two in the D front 7 with the first two picks might be too much for Mike Brown to handle. Of course they did it with Pollack and Thurman, so we'll see.

    True. And with Robertson failing his physical in the potential trade from the Jets I'm not sure how we'd go about resolving the DT situation if we don't grab one in the 2nd.

    Invent a new style of D that doesn't use DTs. Maybe just draft a bunch of LBs and give them Laser Cats.

    Anybody watch the Rivers interview on ESPNews? It has nothing to do with his abilities, but I came away very impressed. He was incredibly well spoken, seemed to be very bright, and even handled the Chad question well. Sounds like he has a great head on his shoulders...

    Bills select a CB.

    I really dislike taking CBs high in the first round. Really, outside of 1 or 2 guys, there isn't a single corner in the NFL that can cover a WR 1-on-1 if the QB has more than a few seconds to throw.

    On the other side, you can play great defense with mediocre corners as long as your pass rush is good. The Giants proved that quite nicely.

    Laws or Dre Moore must be selected in round 2

    Jerry Jones loves him some Arkansasnians.

    I would have loved to be able to grab Mendenhall there, who I'm extremely surprised was still on the board.
