    This is a very good point.

    I went to UVA, so I've seen this guy kicking the crap out of my Wahoos for a few years now. This guy is a quality football player, one of those "gamer" types you like to have on your team. He's not an athletic freak, but is athletic enough to get the job done, definitely plays faster than he tests.

    And as was said above, if he had a better QB throwing to him he would have put up monster numbers and been drafted much higher, great pick!

    GO PHINS!

    Why?

    Just because it is a 7th round pick doesnt mean we should be careless with it.

    Look, its not a big deal, its just a waste in my opinion. If we are looking for camp fodder or depth, WR isnt the area we need to look.

    Grab an O line, D line, LB, DB or hell, a kicker.

    WR just seems pointless and redundant at this point.

    I said I'd not complain about our last pick and I'm not. He's a good player. Will be hard to get him out there on our strongest position but I'm very happy with our draft

    Ozzy rules!!

    Apparently, WRs only play on offense, don't play special teams, and there's no such thing as injuries. And you guys wonder why SoS gets so pissy. :bobdole:

    Add to this draft the FA pick ups and then add to last years team
    Hopefully RT and Jones are ready to go.

    He's 10 picks away from being undrafted. Grier may have passed on him but looks like most of the league saw the same thing.

    This was by far the best draft I've seen in awhile, they saw the problem and tried to fix it with this draft by going defense heavy. Props to the FO right now. We'll see how they pan out for the future of this team. Hopefully it's for the better and this team trends up from here on out.

    FWIW, all of our picks today received "A's" or "A+" from the CBS Draft Tracker

    RND # PLAYER POS. SCHOOL GRADE
    1 22 Charles Harris DE Missouri B+
    2 54 Raekwon McMillan ILB Ohio State B
    3 97 Cordrea Tankersley CB Clemson B-
    5 164 Isaac Asiata OG Utah A+
    5 178 Davon Godchaux DT LSU A
    6 194 Vincent Taylor DT Oklahoma State A
    7 237 Isaiah Ford WR Virginia Tech A+


    Isaiah Ford | WR, Virginia Tech
    Height: 6-1 Weight: 194
    A receiver prospect with less than ideal speed, but put up back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and gets separation with his quickness, giving his QB windows to throw in. Very good value late in the seventh.
    A+

    Are there any teams with Free Safeties likely to be cut in the coming months following this draft?

    They're being careless because you say so. Got it.

    You haven't seen their draft board. You have no idea what the strategy is. Not going BPA this late gives you a higher chance of a wasted pick. Tell me what sense it makes to draft a different position if the player is ranked lower and may not make the team.

    B for McMIllan? Pretty much the consensus top ILB in the draft especially when Foster's character and injury are taken into account?

    Raekwon is an A. No question.

    Relax dude, you're making more out of this than it needs to be.

    Its a 7th round pick FFS. I made a comment that it seemed frivolous, you're turning it into a witch hunt.

    Either Miami did really good or CBS was being lazy today giving out grades.

    It's CBS though. You're wrong, obviously.

    They gave out a bunch of mediocre/ crap grades and some failures too but there were a bunch of B's mostly

    I am relaxed. No animosity here. Tone isn't expressed well through text sometimes. My apologies. It does get annoying hearing the same stuff about 6th and 7th round picks every year though.

    Not sure. I heard he lost his virginity a few months ago though. Hooray.

    Day 3 put this draft over the top. Unbelievable value at every selection round 5 - 7. I'm very happy. I was bummed out a bit, reading about ESPN trashing the 1st two days. This F/O stepped up IMHO.

    I really like Chris Carson. I think the Seahawks added another solid running back. It will be tough for him to stick with Lacy, Rawls, Prosise and Collins on board. Could be looking at the practice squad.

    Wes Welker ran a 4.65. If you're a savvy route runner (Landry) you can get open over the middle.

    Smart move by Elway: Chad Kelly "Mr Irrelevant" He'll probably end up as the Broncos' starting QB in '18 if he heals right and gets his head screwed on straight.

    I understand that but I'd rather take chances on finding a hidden gem in an area that is thin.

    I don't think Kelly makes the roster with Lynch and Siemian. With those two young qbs I expect Denver to add a vet for depth before camp.

    Parker gets nicked up every year so far, Carroo played the first couple of games and disappeared for a reason and even the recently resigned Still has been out hurt here during his tenure here. Remember that Richard Mathews was on this squad a couple of years ago getting lots of reps with big 3 on this squad so there is room
