    This wouldn't be a draft if it wasn't for people freaking out over the draft, bashing AJ over his picks and complaining about their guy not being picked. It's happened every season so why stop now?

    Brandon Keith still available...6'5 330 lbs ran a 5.1 40 Northern Iowa by way of Oklahoma. 7th round pick! My guess.

    Nothing like in the 90's when we drafted guys like:

    JaJuan Seider from Florida A&M a nice safe 6th round pick.

    12th round pick RB Chris Samuels from Texas could have been productive if he had not destroyed his ankle in a pre-season game.

    an offensive tackle, holy ****

    Corey Clark OT Texas A&M 6'6 315
    Overview

    Corey Clark has been a mainstay on the Aggies' offensive line at strong-side offensive tackle during the last three seasons, having taken over that position from former All-Big Twelve Conference choice, Geoff Hangartner.

    Clark's drive-blocking skills helped the team's ground attack had great success, averaging 234.9 yards per game in 2005, 206.8 yards in '06 and 211.6 yards in '07.

    At Smithson Valley High School, Clark earned first-team Super Team honors from Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine, as he helped lead the team to the Class 5A state championship game. He was an All-District, All-Area and All-State selection by the Texas Sports Writers Association and a consensus Texas Top 100 recruit. He was also chosen to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio.

    Clark redshirted in 2003 at Texas A&M. He appeared in four games behind Geoff Hangartner at strong-side offensive tackle in 2004, seeing his most action vs. Tennessee in the Cotton Bowl when Hangartner was injured.

    In 2005, Clark took over strong-side tackle chores, going on to start his final 37 games at that position. He delivered 52 knockdowns with five touchdown-resulting blocks, helping the offense average 442.3 yards per game, a figure that ranks second on the school's season-record list.

    Clark earned All-Big Twelve Conference honorable mention in 2006. He posted 54 knockdowns, opening holes for six touchdown runs. The front wall allowed only 19 quarterback sacks on 330 pass plays. The Aggies' offense averaged 397.4 yards per game, as the running attack produced 32 of that unit's 45 touchdowns.

    As a senior, Clark garnered second-team All-Big Twelve Conference accolades. He gave up just two sacks on 376 pass plays, registering 70 knockdowns, along with eight touchdown resulting blocks. The Aggies averaged 397.0 yards per game and saw their quarterbacks get sacked just 16 times for minus-120 yards.

    http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/ot/coreyclark.html

    Strengths:
    Very good size with a large frame...Pretty good athlete...Quick with decent range and mobility...Does a good job of protecting the edge...Strong...Solid balance...Is smart with good awareness...Good work ethic...Durable...Has a lot of experience.

    Weaknesses:
    Is not super physical or aggressive...Isn't very stout at the point of attack...Needs to play with better pad level...Not very explosive off the snap...Footwork isn't real impressive...He isn't a great technician...Is not nasty and may lack a killer instinct.

    Notes:
    Was a three-year starter in the Big 12...Most likely a right tackle at the next level but could also project inside to guard..Physically he has the tools you look for and is somewhat of a big school sleeper..Possible late round steal and it would not be a complete surprise if he developed into an NFL starter somewhere down the line.


    Sounds like a real find, Dunlap I was somewhat cautious about (what senior loses his job to a freshman???) but this guy, if he can learn to get nastier and tougher, could be a hell of a right tackle
