The Mike Nugent pick was a bit surprising, but a good kicker meant that the Jets would have been in the AFC championship, and Nugent seems very promising.

I am VERY happy with the Justin Miller pick, he could have been a first rounder, so he can come in and contribute immediately.

McPherson is still on the board at the end of round 3. He looks to go somewhere early tomorrow.

Ernest Shazor stuck around too, suprisingly.

How the hell did the Saints take Alfred Fincher over Daryl Blackstock when our biggest need is an outside linebacker, and Blackstock has the talent to be a late first rounder...?

By the way I missed pretty much the entire second round, but saw the third, so if there was any reason for Blackstock to fall that far that I missed or something, well then ignore this post.

AD is a steal in the 5th (I love it, too, since I've always loved the Saints)...so's Robert McCune, based on pure physical ability. Yes, he's raw, yes, he'll be a 26-year old player, but he has superb character and tools. Nearly 250 lbs...runs a 4.5 40. Somebody has to give Antajj Hawthorne a shot here. Sure, he does pot, but he was a rumored 1st round pick earlier in the year. I'm shocked that Cincy went for an OT over a DT (Hawthorne) in the 5th. They need depth at OT, but not over a need like DT. Marvin said that they don't need a DT at all and that wasn't the problem with the run D, but that is an absolute joke. The top three DTs on the team are John Thornton, Bryan Robinson, and Matthias Askew.

Somebody should take a flyer on Larry Brackins soon...

I like the Adrian McPherson pick, because he has such tremendous upside. I mean, it is a risk, but it could turn out great for the Saints. He is so athletic, and has a body that is perfect for the NFL.

Just a few things in brief as I've only seen part of the draft list but Dallas did an outstanding job with their first 3 picks in my estimation.

I thought Clarrett was an interesting fit for the Broncos, perhaps at the FB position.

Biggest shock to me had to be pick #7 when the Vikes took Williamson over Williams. That WR corps in Detroit is now potentially the best in the NFL.

I don't really like what dallas did to tell you the truth. I felt like they needed to upgrade the offense, and they shouldnt have used both first rounders on Defense.
