    Sh*t

    I don't want Oakland getting Brady Quinn.... just as I didn't want anyone else in our division getting one of the top three that came out last year... :no: :tdown:

    Anybody seen this LB Patrick Willis from Mississipi play this season?

    Played heavily all four years. Read a few things that seemed pretty positive.

    Donnie replacement potential?

    Probably not left on the board at #32 though. But maybe a Turner pick.

    He has this guy at 5?

    Most mocks have this guy at the bottom of the 1st and I was hoping that he might fall to us to fill that need we have behind JMal.

    SDRon and I both know that he will mock at least 30 more times! See everyone thinks Mel is a great draft analyst but he really isnt! You see he figures if he mocks enough, he will eventually get close! Mel is a great person to know if you want to know about attributes on college players, but keep this and come draft day see where he is then, and then see where people are picked it wont be close I promise!

    Kiper had Dwayne Slay rated the 12th best senior in the nation at one point last year and I am the only person who remembers :lol:

    some good college players. we could end up getting a 1st and 3rd rounder for Turner so that should put us higher up
