At the time I made that comment all I had to go on was what the Dolphins did, but obviously the Cowboys did what they always do when they trade down. As Otis said in another thread..'get fleeced'.

I'm a Steelers fan and I'm not sure about our pick either. I can see why we took a LB - by the time we picked there had been a run on DL's. But we grabbed a guy that ran a 4.9 at the combine? We could have had any LB we wanted as he was the first to come off the board and we choose a guy that slow?

speaking of slow..the guy the Cowboys drafted is the slowest center to be drafted in the last 20 years.

He's a center, though - they're supposed to be slow. The problem with the Cowboys pick is that he likely would have been there in a later round.

The Bengals went 'BPA' with taking a tight end,hopefluy,he can realisticaly block or catch the ball getting drilled in the numbers and hold on too it.

or even betterthat Andy Dalton can throw the ball no more than 12 feet off target.

As far as our needs are concerned,Safety and running back comes too mind and of course, another OT as well. [since RT Andre Smith is a 'vapor trail' out of Cincy after the drafts over.]

On a lighter note. Cincy hired #92 Harrison,and he's probably slower.:)

Harrison, let's be honest, waited until he was 30 to start having a great career. Don't know what the hold up was with him but he was cut by 3 different teams - including the Steelers - before being resigned by us.

The secret to his success is getting that sharp angle in getting under the OT, and to do that he really has to bend that ankle - the same ankle that wasn't fully healthy last year.

I think Harrison in Cincy is a bad fit.

He's used to the 3-4 where he rushes the passer but in Cincy he's part of the 4-3, is he not? Square peg, round hole.
