    Yeah, I was kinda surprised when I was going over my list and he was still there. He's the reason I was so antsy to make my pick.

    I think the Murphy pick was a solid pick for the Falcons but I also feel The raider's ( Numbah58 ) selection of CB Stanley Jean Baptiste is a serious rival to the claim of Best value pick to date.

    What would you think of us taking him and moving him to OLB?

    I REALLY like the guy. He is definitely one of my options at #46. I just don't think he gets there. As for our fantasy mock, Tuitt was just too good of value, which is why I went there instead of Murphy. If Worilds isn't here long term, I would have no issues brining Murphy in to play LOLB.

    I do like Baptiste, but I think the 3rd round is exactly where he goes. I think he is a little raw to take in the 2nd round.

    Some still view Murphy as a late 1st round type of pick. To get him in the 3rd is great value.

    I agree Baptiste is a 3rd rounder. We're talking value here and the raiders needed a CB and they got a solid player meeting a serious need. I also feel Stanley will play sooner and better than Murphy.

    No-Way Murphy is a 1st rounder. He may be projected by most as a 2nd rounder but I feel that's because of his position. He's a 4-3 DE ( I say no to moving him to 3-4 OLB ) and he has that "attitude" to match but he's a bit light at 250. The combine showed he's too weak ( right now anyways ) and too slow to drop into coverage or chasing players from the backside. In the senior bowl he also showed he can be " held up " by some top talent and he'll see any better talent in the NFL.

    Murphy is a pick for the future more so than the present and Stanley should pay dividends quickly.

    Nice pick, Elvis, I really like EJ Gaines. He's flying under the national media radar, but I bet he's high on the list for the scouts.

    Thanks :) He's a favorite of mine, and I think he's scheme versatile enough to play for us as well. I think he'll go by pick #75 in the real draft, regardless of what the online "experts" are thinking.

    I know I've been more quiet than other years and such...but I haven't been around much lately (though I do check in a couple times at day or so).

    I just wanted to pop in again and say everyone is doing awesome this year...and not toooo much delay is happening like past years. And a big thank you to TTF/numbah/NB and all for helping out. I really think this type of system (with the committee/helpers or whatever) works the best...as NB can attest to...this thing can become a lot of work (and possibly turn into a headache).

    So thanks again everyone.

    it feels about right. The first 2 rounds went by extremely fast this year. By the 4th round people will start to drop out so it draggggggs.

    My apologies for dragging out this pick. I had to take a trip to Charlotte and while there and on the way back was made an offer for a trade. Traveling and mobile internet devices doesn't mix well.

    I really wanted him for SF. Think its a perfect fit. If I didn't take him there, I would have if he was still there with my comp pick. He wasn't getting out of the 3rd.

    The Jets were the ones trying to trade up with Cajun. To get CJ.

    Nice pick NB, Telvin Smith is the perfect 4-3 OLB for the Broncos and may now be the best Value pick of the draft.

    The Panthers price was a bit expensive. We needed to add a WR and didn't want to risk loosing either of the two we were considering. We also felt CJ was a perfect fit of the Jets and would have made them complete with the added FA acquisitions.
