    Wilson's a good outside back, so it differs Bradshaw's smash and thrash running. He's a very explosive player and many compare him to Jamaal Charles' style. He's also a good receiver so if Bradshaw's the starter, Wilson can be a great 3rd down back.

    I think he complements the current Giants' roster well. Whatever the other RBs lacked, Wilson brings to the table. It's a relatively low risk, high reward pick for the Giants who have little holes in their roster.

    Sounds like a logical pick for a team that won the Super Bowl. I am happy with it.

    On the home front, everyone is saying the Bolts got a steal in Ingram at #18. Did A.J. Smith do something right for once?

    McClellin's not a bad pick value-wise, but not too good of a choice for the Bears. I would've liked DeCastro or Reiff for o-line, especially since they were both projected to be top 20 picks.

    I don't think the Bears need anymore WRs. Bennett and Marshall (and then Knox, Hester, Thomas, Sanzenbacher in some order) are good enough for Cutler to thrive on. An o-line made of Webb, Williams, Garza, Louis, Carimi (and perhaps Spencer)? Not so much. Here's hoping they draft Konz...They're on the clock as I type this though.

    Happy to see three Wisconsin Badgers drafted in the top 75. I was a bit surprised Seattle took Russell Wilson (still think he's incredibly underrated) but I'm interested to see how he will perform as Matt Flynn's backup.

    I'm real pleased with Ted Thompson during this draft. He's not one to trade up but he did it twice tonight, and I think it will pay off. We're getting some much needed help in defense, especially our secondary, with the additions of OLB Nick Perry, DT Jerel Worthy, and CB Casey Hayward. I can't wait to see how these guys pan out.

    Absolutely hated the Bears drafting, but I can see why they drafted some of the players. Our main concerns in order were O-line, pass rushing, WR, CB, special teams, and QB. We addressed pass rushing pretty well with McClellin, WR was also done with Jeffery. We killed two bird with one stone with Frey and McCoy to cover for special teams and CB, but I still don't understand why Hardin and Rodriguez were drafted at all, especially when they could've drafted Bobby Massie with the 3rd pick. Though Emery was probably thinking another rookie at the O-line would be fruitless since we haven't even developed Carimi yet. We didn't even attempt to get a QB, but hopefully we won't have to go beyond Campbell anyways. A good portion of the Bears' picks were reasonable, but I can't find a way to justify Hardin and Rodriguez at the 3rd and 4th round respectively. Would've made more sense to get CB special teams specialists with those picks and roster filler with 6th and 7th. We'll see soon enough.

    Didnt need a QB!!! Cutler and Campell fine. I likes DE and WR picks. Didnt like 3rd or 4th RD picks. after that its all a crap shoot.
