59. Colts Mike Pollack – C Arizona St

60. Packers Patrick Lee – CB Auburn

61 Cowboys Martellus Bennett -TE Texas A&M *shakes head* Let me just say this.. I thought if you needed a position filled, you draft the best player at that position. Jerry Jones dropped the ball when he drafted Jones over Mendenhall. He did it again here.. Has nothing to do with the fact that Bennett went to A&M, has to do with the fact he was not the best T.E. left on the board.

62. Patriots Terrence Wheatley -CB Colorado

63. Giants Terrell Thomas – CB USC

Well the first and second rounds are in the books. I must say I am a big fan of the 10 minute picks. Rounds 3-7 coverage picks up at 10 a.m.

Little upset to see Limus Sweed go to Pittsburgh… I’m sure Vince is also. Kansas City won for best draft of the day.. but USC was the big winner at the college level!

I added some stats and bios for each player taken in the first two rounds.. That way if your not familiar with your teams pick, you can check out the player. 🙂

2 rounds down, 5 to go…

Quick Thoughts…

Gonna keep today short and sweet.. Gotta get ready for the draft tomorrow. I will be doing a *live blog* tomorrow.. Atleast thru the first two rounds. So whats on the schedule for tonight other then trying to finish my draft board?

-Stars begin their western conference  semi final series tonight in San Jose

– Mavs try to avoid getting beat like a red headed step child by the Hornets here at home.

So lets go Stars, and Mavs.. and ladies and gentleman.. ITS FINALLY DRAFT WEEKEND!!!

Thursday Funny…

tmq_lg.gif

With the draft upon us.. Mock Draft Boards are going crazy.. This is one of the better articles I’ve read this week. Here is a sample…

7. New England Patriots (from San Francisco): Michael Hayden, director, Central Intelligence Agency. A perfect fit for the Patriots’ program.

This is definitely worth the read 😉

Well No More Strip Clubs For Me…

pacman jones

Well its official.. Pacman Jones is now the Cowboys headache. The Titans get a 4th round draft pick for the extremely talented, and colossally stupid cornerback. Atleast Jerry was smart enough to put some conditions on this trade..

A. Pacman must be reinstated, and play a majority of the upcoming season for the Titans to get the rest of the deal *6th round draft pick next year*

B. If Pacman is not reinstated, or does not play a majority of the upcoming season, the Titans give the Cowboys back the 4th round draft pick next year, and the deal is a wash.

For the record I do not support this move. So lets look at the troubled players that have been brought in over the last few years

1. Terrell Owens

2. Tank Johnson

3. Pacman Jones

4 Chris Henry ( not yet, but I’m sure its coming. He is a thug.. Arrested 5 times in the last 2 years..He would fit in nicely)

5. Michael Vick (suuuuure why not..)

6 Cedric Wilson

Ok so the last three haven’t happened yet.. but you see my point. I’m a die hard Cowboys fan, but I gotta tell you.. I’m very disappointed in my team today.

*Sidenote.. The night the Pacman deal is finalized.. it stormed like hell.. The day after.. The skies are grey*

Allen Heads To Vikings…

Jared Allen

Elite pass rusher Jared Allen is heading to the Vikings, but did the Vikings give waaaay to much?? *Shakes magic 8 ball* *Unsure at this time, please ask again later* The Vikings must really have a man crush on the 26 year old defensive end.. Signing him to a 6 year $74 Million dollar contract.. with $31 Million guaranteed. The Vikings also give Kansas City a 1st round draft pick (this year) and 2 3rd round draft picks, giving Kansas City 6 picks in the top 82 this year.
