I've seen alot of overated articles about tommie harris and i tend to agree with them. his stats in college werent all that spectacular, and it cant all be because he was "double teamed". all premeir defensive lineman are double teamed. i also think k2 is a little overated... but he's a miami product, so perhaps its warranted.

Even though he is only ranked as the 5th or 6th best QB, Cody Pickett (QB-Washington) is very much over-rated. I never saw a game in which I thought he played really well. His delivery is slow and he has trouble with accuracy, especially with long passes. Also, he never seemed to be a leader or take over a game. UW is sad to see him go, but I think its the best thing to happen to them in 5 years. And you can't say he didnt have the talent around him, Reggie Wayne is more than capable of letting a good QB show his talents.

In closing, I think that Cody Pickett is an over-rated, worthless piece of talentless flesh. Any team that drafts him is doomed to a decade of failure!!!!!

Well, I'm ready for the abuse, and gotta say Gallery. Not as a complete player as Ogden, Pace or Boselli coming out of college. Should be great, should be... , but as an immediate starter, I think the guy will really struggle for a year or two. Ultimately, should be a very solid to pro-bowl caliber player, but #1 in this draft... No.

For me before he was ruled ineligible it had to be Mike Williams... the man is slower than the top 3 te's in this draft... But now that he is out im gonna have to go with Matt Schaub who has almost less armstrength than i do. im gonna take major flack for this but Im gonna also say Eli manning... I belive Roethlisberger has way better tools and hes no where near as good at reading defenses as peyton was when he was coming out of college, ive heard of so many guys who out performed eli at their workouts, Roethlisberger and Losman to name two.

Well, it seems like DT's are usually the most likely to not pan out into anyone you ever hear about again, so Tommie Harris could easily be a bust.

Outside of that, I think Roethlisberger might end up being a bust. He's big, got great arm strength, etc, but I've heard he has trouble reading the field, which could very well be the most important attribute.
