Here is what is on my mind right now:
- Osama. Dead.
- Shame on 32 NFL clubs for not drafting Mark Herzlich. I know it is a busieness, but drafting a defensive tackle from North Wichita Community College in the 7th round over a former ACC defensive player of the year who survived cancer is wrong. Herzlich was still a productive player in 2010 after recovering from cancer, recording 65 tackles, four interceptions, and two forced fumbles. Was he still a first rounder? Heck no. but definitely worthy of a 7th round pick.
Now, because of the lockout, Herzlich will have to wait to sign a free-agent contract. The good PR alone from taking this guy would have made the draft pick worth it. Instead, players like Jimmy Smith and his four failed drug tests are first round picks.
- Congratulations to all the Dawgs drafted. I was especially excited to see Kris Durham go in the fourth round. Mel Kiper may not like the pick, but I think Durham will prove all of them wrong.
- With the draft over, there is not much left until summer practice. I am getting ready for the 100 day countdown to the new season. I know I haven't been writing much lately, but that will soon change.
