NFL Draft: How'd Your College/Pro Team Do?

Well, with the draft nearly over, the question is:

How did your College/Pro team do? How many guys off your favorite college team have been drafted so far? Or, did your favorite NFL team fill it's needs?


I have a little bone to pick. Mike Hass from Oregon State, who was the nations best wide reciever last year...Winning the trophy to prove it....Slipped all the way to the sixth round. How? The kid put up numbers no other Pac 10 reciever has ever put up: 3 consecutive 1,000 yard seasons in a row. He dominated both conference, and non-conference defensive backfields. He was finally picked 2nd in the sixth round by the Saints. He will prove to be one heck of a steal.

Saints fans: GET READY!! This kid can light it up. He's got great hands. He knows how to create. He made two average quarterbacks at Oregon State look awesome when he had the ball thrown his way.

OSU also had Keith Ellison drafted. He is a pretty good linebacker. He may suprise some folks in Buffalo.

I think OSU (Ohio State) had 9 drafted, most notably A.J. Hawk (Packers), Bobby Carpenter (Cowboys) & Santonio Holmes (Steelers).

I'm looking forward to seeing how Holmes does in Pittsburgh, although I'll miss watching him in Columbus.

My Gators had Chad Jackson drafted in the 2nd round which surprised me as everyone seemed to think he would be a 1st rounder. Jeremy Mincey went in the 6th and Dee Webb went in the 7th. We had a couple of others not get drafted which was a surprise but they'll end up as free agents somewhere.

My Dolphins on the other hand, well Hell I don't know what to think. We need a RB after the whole Ricky Williams fiasco but we take a Safety in the 1st. Follow that with a WR, OT, 2 DTs, and another WR and I still see no running back. Oh well, we'll see what happens.

Too bad for Reggie Bush though. Nothing against the city of New Orleans but it is the place for careers to die or never flourish.

By far my favorite ethnic name and a great name for an OT.

My college (Kansas) had no one drafted, but it is likely Charles Gordon, a CB from the Los Angeles area, will be picked up as a UFA in the next few days.

My pro team(s): Chicago did ok...surprised to see mostly defense, but it sounds exciting, especially the kick return specialist who should light things up with speed and ability. Kansas City didn't do quite so good in my mind, and my roomate and I questioned every pick that flashed up on the screen.

You're probably right, I'm just repeating one of those random factoids they gave out during the draft, haha.

I was very surprised that Gordon did not get picked up by someone in the draft, but he'll definitely get signed by someone...FWIW, KU was the only Big 12 team shut out this year in the Draft...

Anyways...Pro:

Eagles...eh, just an ok draft overall...picked four linemen (2 offense, 2 defense)with our first 4 picks (including Max Jean-Gilles in the 4th round, an absolute steal!), then switched focus briefly to offense, drafting Jason Avant from UMich at WR...havent heard much about him but I understand he's solid but not exactly spectacular, and then the big one...my man Jeremy Bloom at pick 147...I went to bed last night depressed and hoping that we'd draft someone other than a lineman...woke up this morning, and 10 minutes after I wake up, the pick is announced, and Im wired for the rest of the day...no idea how psyched i was about this pick...our return game sucks, so he'll boost it greatly (almost no chance of him getting cut in training camp, Reid loves him), and he could be great in our offense in trick plays and such...

We rounded out the draft by taking Omar Gaither, OLB from Tennessee, and yet another freakin lineman, LaJuan Ramsey from USC...don't know much about em and they are probably doomed to the practice squad or pink slip...

As for my Buffs...this was the best draft for the Buffs since Ive been here...my freshman year we only had 2 players drafted, last year, ZERO (very embarrassing), and this year we had 4 taken...

2nd round:
Joe Klopfenstein, TE, taken by the Rams with pick 46 in round 2...the best Buff prospect in the draft, went a little higher than I thought, but thats not a bad thing!

5th round:
Jeremy Bloom, WR/RS, taken by the Eagles with pick 147 in round 5...already discussed above but DAMN IM PSYCHED!!!

5th round:
Quinn Sypniewski, TE, taken by the Ravens with pick 166 in round 5...yes, thats right, we had not 1 but 2 TE's drafted this year...Sypniewski was a 6th year senior for us, much bigger guy than Klopfenstein, more of a blocker but still can catch the ball decently...as you can tell by his 6th year status he is somewhat injury prone which should be a worry for the Ravens...

6th round:
Lawrence Vickers, FB, taken by the Browns with pick 180 in round 6...pretty solid guy, a team leader for us, more of a RB/FB hybrid than a straight out FB (his position at CU was called "V-back" for versatile back for this reason)...thought he would've been taken a bit earlier but oh well...

That's all we had...two notable absences were LB/S Brian Iwuh, who I thought should have been a late round pick, and P John Torp, again, worthy of a late round pick...I was incredibly insulted when the first punter taken came from Nebraska (GRRRRRRRR), and Torp was left hanging when Mr. Irrelevant came around...I know he'll get signed by some team, as will Iwuh...

I saw Mike Hass play once last season, when OSU lost to ASU at home. I thought he was overrated, but then again, I didn't see the rest of his games. It is interesting to note, however, that a former Oregon H.S. Player of the Year didn't even get recruited out of high school and had to walk on at OSU initially. Good luck to him in the pros.

It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside that out of the 10 Texas A&M players available in the draft, only two got drafted.

I'm not sure if it was a good move for Brian Calhoun to leave the Badgers early. I think he could have benefitted by staying there another year, but then again, who knows what's gonna happen under Brett Bielema.

Washington State running back Jerome Harrison slipped all the way to the 5th round and was picked by the Browns. I'm shocked that the nation's 2nd leading rusher to Reggie Bush, averaging over 170 yards per game, fell that far. Cleveland got a steal.

Key word there... PAC-10. If he was from the SEC or ACC, or Big XII, and put up those same numbers, he would have gone higher.

Again... PAC-10. If USC hadn't have won or even been in the running to play in those national championships, I don't think Bush would have been rated and raved about as much as he was. Still a top 5 pick, but that's my belief anyhow.

Which character was that?

HOPEFULLY the Arizona Cardinals gave me a reason to root for them this year after drafting Matt Leinart. But then again, I think they've had some pretty stinkin' good teams in the past and then they just were pretty much stinkin' at the end of the year. But the possibilities are nice... Matt Leinart (of course K. Warner has the starting job at least for now), Edgerrin James, Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald.... They look real good. But I can remember good Cardinals teams with Jake Plummer, Aeneas Williams, Simeon Rice, David Boston, Larry Centers.... and they just suck year after year.

It'll be interesting to see if Haloti Ngata will open up some room for Ray Lewis of the Ravens.... I thought they might have tried to pick up a QB in the draft... but there were slim choices for them by their pick.... that and Steve McNair is now a Raven. Or is soon going to be. Tell me, what is it about the love Baltimore has for older Tennessee players???

Cardinals will reach the postseason this year...write it down. They wont go much past that, but I'm puting my foot"balls" on the line for this one.

Interesting, I thought the Bills did a great job this year. I think you'll be surprised, and especially happy with your late Day 1/early Day 2 steals in Ashton Youboty and Ko Simpson, I've been watching them for a while and they both excite me. Also, I bet you're surprised by Donte Whitner, but he's also a great player, just not a huge name, especially to go at #8. Not only that, but as a former OSU teamate with Youboty, you're got chemistry in the secondary already. Keith Ellison at OLB is also a good, 3 year starter in college. I think it's gonna be a good year to be a Bills fan next year!

No fooling. I was in Washington for the past several years and grew up in AZ. I know what kind of good teams they have. I was alluding to all the bias you see in the media. I see Big 10, Big 12, Big East, ACC, and SEC coverage all the time. I mean honestly, I could turn on Fox Sports Net some days in Washington and see THE BIG XII REPORT! So that's why I made my point.... they have many good players, even on the not so good teams, but you'd almost never know about it.
