    Now the Ravens can deal with Brown of another type! Splendid!

    Then we pray he doesn't tear his groin and is never the same again.

    If he has a similar rookie season, we're hoisting our 7th.

    That's a bad pairing with Lamar.

    This reminds me of John Ross: an undersized, injury prone receiver with nothing but speed and no one to get him the ball. And both drafted by AFC North Rivals. IN the first round! I feel good about this. :applaud:

    They're nuts if they think he dropped below 12 even.

    I'm fairly positive Cinci would have snagged him... to prevent us getting him if nothing else. :lolol:

    Honestly when Bush flies in the screen in pursuit it reminds me a little of Troy.

    Crazy. I'm starting to wonder if moving up in the 2nd is a possibility.

    So there goes Baker. I expect we will see a run on corners from now into the early second round.

    I like Harry a lot but I never would have guessed Brown and Harry would be the first 2 off the board.

    Me neither. It's very possible that AJ Brown ends up going off the board next and Metcalf still has a wait. Lots of great talent available in the 2nd. Bush has grown on me, but it would sure be nice to have a 2nd round pick

    We could get back in but I think we sacrificed enough already unless one of our 6ths can get us up just a spot or two if there's someone we really like. I really don't want to have to trade a 4th or 5th to get back in.

    . I wonder what Joe Greene thought of that get up? I hope he plays better than he dresses. That was terrible.

    Atypical first round.

    Two TE's, and both from Iowa, taken before a single WR or CB.

    Excepting the QB's taken, because QB's are different, the pick in the first I like the least is Hockenson. He just doesn't look like the kind of gamechanging impact player that justifies the 8th pick. At least not to me. The pick I like the most is Ed Oliver at 9 by the Bills.

    As for Bush, we'll see, but I give the Steelers kudos for identifying their man and going for him aggressively. Based on the trade value chart they slightly overpaid, but not by a lot which sounds to me like a fair draft day deal.


    Edit: Jesse James can't be too happy about the Lions picking Hockenson. He just saw his PT drop significantly.

    Bush:
    172 total tackles
    91 solo
    81 assists
    18.5 tackles for loss
    10 sacks
    1 interception
    11 passes defended
    0 forced fumbles

    David Long jr.:

    246 total tackles
    169 solo tackles
    77 assists
    39.5 tackles for loss
    12.5 sacks
    10 passes defended
    0 interceptions
    2 forced fumbles.


    both in 3 years. Both 4.4 guys. Both the same size essentially. I don't see the value and how Bush is by far the better player that is a must have.:cool:
