One flakes out and it's an upset that he drops into the 2nd round, worthy of continued media investigation.

The other guy just vanishes this weekend, almost as though a computer virus deleted his name from the draft boards, and we hear nary a peep. What gives?


One went to Notre Dame and got overrated as per the norm with anyone there that shows a smidgen of potential.

i dont get it. if we could make even close to as good of choices with our first round picks as we do with our mid/late picks, UDFA, basically fricking everything else, we'd be the patriots ever year, or better

Me too. I even went out on a limb and predicted he would be the pick in round 6.

I don't have the slightest clue how/why Thomas wasn't drafted, but this kid is a stud. He's one of the single reasons Stanford beat USC and Oregon. Like some said, he's also played in the 3-4 for years.

I frickin LOVE this signing.

Teams get turned off by linebackers who run in the 4.9's. His stats are pretty solid though.

Didn't Jarvis Jones run a 4.9?

Hey...we agree on something

Reddick is a solid pick up brothers.

Kevin Reddick, ILB, North Carolina
Height: 6-1. Weight: 243. Arm: 31 5/8. Hand: 9 3/8.
40 Time: 4.72.
Projected Round (2012): 5-7.
4/24/13: Reddick was a disappointment in the early going of 2012, but played better in the second half of the season. He racked up 85 tackles, 18.5 tackles for a loss, 6.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and six passes breakup. Reddick may be best in the NFL as part of a 3-4 that likes to blitz from the inside linebackers. He didn't do as well as expected at the Combine.

Scouts told WalterFootball.com that they graded Reddick as a late-round pick, but could see a team liking him and taking him in the mid-rounds.

This guy will be hard to keep off the field. He will be want to play next to Lofton.

HELLZ YEAHHHHHHHHHHHH

Me likey this draft.

And no I don't say that every year.

Still a little worried about the OL though. Counting on rookies or unproven olinemen can be a problem.
