    AKA ... Bust of this draft.

    There are some outstanding NFL greats and all-pro who did poorly at the combine and even on the Wonderlic test that went on to have some exceptional careers.

    Pats spend almost all of their draft picks in defense (in the 7th round drafted a WR)

    They drafted Donta Hightower and Chandler Jones, so I think that is a nice improvement from what they had before

    Also they dont need a top 10 Defense, they just need a top 20 Defense, to have a very good shot at the superbowl.

    Colts are willing to the cede this season to let Andrew Luck run wild like Cam Newton. Their draft next season will be telling.

    5 Baylor players drafted :cool:

    That's the most in the state of Texas. Guess which school has the third most first round picks in the last 4 years? You guessed it.

    It's impressive, but let's see how successful you guys are now that the RG3 ride is over.

    We killed Tech in the second half without Griffin. We have the best defensive class coming in quite some time and our offensive line is gonna be nice. Our receiving core is still great.. Replaced Wright with a 4 star recruit. Briles is more important than Griffin. His last 3 quarterbacks have been Kolb, Keenum and Griffin.

    Blah blah blah. Pee-pee games. Blah blah blah.

    Btw, LOL at Jeff Fuller. First round talent to undrafted. One of the many signs of the craptastic season A&M had.

    First round talent I guess -- except when I saw him play he sucked. Just like that 3rd round talent Stephen McGee.

    Fuller strikes me as one of those guys who, when the going gets tough, he opens up a giant bag of quit. He was dealing with injuries this season, but he never struck me as the type of guy who worked especially hard at getting back to 100%.

    And did you seriously just cite the Texas Tech game as an example of why you'll be fine without Griffin? I'm not saying you guys will suck or anything....but seriously, it was Tech. TECH.

    He looked good against the top DB in the country against LSU last year. He might have something. Wasn't he pampered coming out of HS?

    As long as we're playing pee-pee games, I'd like to point out that Rice had more players drafted than UH :p

    Well that's the only example to cite. Nick Florence was throwing bombs on target in that second half. We'll see how we handle losing Griffin, Wright and Ganaway.
