I don't think drafting Dennard would have been a good idea. The guy was in jail 3 days before the draft.

Dennard is someone who would be completely off my list as well.

To be honest, we all like Greenwood now that we have him and realize our staff liked how he worked out but I never saw a single mock or discussion with people wanting to spend a 5th on him. So to see him in these lists is kind of odd.

Actually somebody started a thread about him about 3 months ago and many people wanted him in the 5-7rd.



Thats was me phreak i started the thread on Chris Greenwood i know the kid personally and talked to him alot about the draft and where he thought he would go...His exact words to me back in november were "My dream is to play for the Detroit Lions" and then he went on to talk about how he feels like Detroit was the play he needs to be because we havent had a good corner in a long time and he wanted to shock the world.

I also talked to him right after he had his workout with the Lions. He told me he killed it and thought they were interested but in no way shape or form did i think he would be picked in the 5th. Im glad we got him, and i think people are going to be really suprised on how this guy turns out.

I wanted DeCastro in the 1st, but then realized that it is highly unlikely that we would get a shot at the #2 LOT in any draft in the near future. Reiff was the perfect mix of need and value.

I love your 1st two picks. In one draft Pittsburg solidified their OL for the next ten years-and from the bottom of the draft order. DD, Adams, and Pouncey, unbelievable.

If it turns out that RR can't play LT, passing on DD will hunt us. Pittsburg always seems to benefit from our failure to properly judge OL talent. Remember, we let Jeff Hartings walk and they mad him an All Pro Center. Now they take DD and Adams right from under our nose.
