07:44 AM ET 12.25 | Brian Kelly said Tuesday that his star junior defensive end, Stephon Tuitt, received a second-round grade from the NFL's Draft Advisory Board. Kelly made the comments to Irish Illustrated's Tim Prister, the only media member present after the team's practice Tuesday at the New York Giants' practice facility in East Rutherford, N.J. ... The 6-foot-6, 322-pound Tuitt has been almost universally projected as a first-round draft pick, and a high one at that, by most draft analysts. "Stephon has all that information," Kelly told Irish Illustrated. "He'll have to make that decision in the next week or so. We sat down and had a nice conversation where I think that leads him. I gave him the facts of his academics. My job is to provide him with all the information whether he wants to hear it or not."

It is what happens when an egomaniac is allowed to draft.

Brian Kelly said, "please stay, please"
as he kneeled on his knees.
Stephon Tuitt said, "can't do it,
it's not prudent".
As he turned his empty pockets inside-out,
Brian Kelly began to pout,
"Ah geez, why didn't I coach in the $EC"!!!



MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL & GO BUCKS!!!

Jerry normally trades out of the 1st round, then takes 3rd round talent in the 2nd round. Just sayin'

That's weird, SI had him going in the first round this week in their mock draft, late teens I think.

Tuitt had a quiet year by his standards; same with Nix.
