    Slightly off topic, but does anyone know why Washington's Chris Polk has taken such a tumble?

    The Redskins need a CB even worse than the Cowboys and they decided to take a RB instead of Dennard. That's when I knew, it may be over for Dennard in the draft.

    Dennard is going to have to use his rookie contract (he'll get signed by somebody) as motivation. If he can stay healthy (and out of jail) Dennard I think is good enough to start in the NFL. It's just going to be a longer road to getting there because of his own stupidity.

    Bo Pelini needs to use this as Example #1 about why nothing good happens after 11 pm.

    That's the other big question mark IMO. I was stunned that the Redskins took that RB out of FAU instead of Polk. Certain things in this draft have been very odd. I also cannot explain why OT Bobby Massie took a huge tumble.

    This one shocks me. He played really well behind a bad o-line. Love to see my chargers get some depth with him as a free agent steal. McNutt is still out there too!

    Nother CB, more indication that Dennard is not going today.

    If he goes it'll probably be in round 7 when the majority of the guys picked don't make NFL teams. At this point Dennard is a huge, huge value pick out there for somebody. I doubt he gets sentenced to jail time.

    Certain guys who have taken a tumble I wonder if we just haven't heard that they failed the "stupid test" at the combine (also known as a drug test.)

    No that's a good pick. Both of the Redskins "backups" are horrible and one of them (Grossman) is aging and only on a one year contract. Grossman will be around this year to tutor RGIII and then allowed to leave. John Beck has never belonged in the NFL in the first place. Cousins will replace him on the roster as the #3 QB and be the backup to RGIII next year.

    You need a good backup in the NFL and Cousins is a good backup QB that the Redskins can keep around for years.

He doesn't have a fast enough first step off the ball to be a first round NFL draft pick once the scouts got him at the combine.

    I have to disagree a bit on Crick. I think he moves pretty well for a guy his size. I don't think he projects well at DT in the NFL, but he could be a monster DE in a 3-4 scheme. The thing that has hurt him the most is that he is projected as a DE in the NFL, so he has a transition to make.

    Agreed. Given the fact that the officer wasn't seriously injured, I would guess he'll get probation and a fine. He wasn't in any other trouble at NU, so I hope he gets things straightened out and learns from this. The Bears could use a good value CB!

    Good riddance. There are people on this board who are better QB than John Beck.

    This draft has gotten me wondering where Taylor Martinez projects as an NFL prospect. I think he can play in the NFL if he doesn't do what Crouch did and insist on being a QB.

    Actually that fight with Jefferies in the bowl game started some teams wondering about Dennard's character. If this latest thing was the only thing out there about Dennard I don't think it would have hurt him this much. Combine his past injuries with character questions and this is what you get.

    EDIT: Your Bears just took a CB but it wasn't Dennard. It was some kid from Nevada.

    This is really sad. Even though he did it to himself, I feel sorry for Dennard at this point.

    I think the only chance Dennard gets picked is if the Patriots take him in one of these last two picks. They have a need using 20+ people in their secondary last year and that locker room is known for taming character issues. Other than this, I dont really see him getting picked.(Ravens maybe?)

    It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.

    Washington needs a CB badly. I think Dennard will be taken it's just that every team doesn't want to be the team who gambles too much. The Redskins have one more pick in the 6th round and two in the 7th round. As we saw last year, the Redskins scout Nebraska significantly. Marty Schottenheimer's kid was the Redskins scout responsible for looking at Nebraska kids last year, I'm not sure who scouted Nebraska this year.

    Crick should play well in Houston's 3-4 and hybrid defense Phillips runs. Watt is playing well at DE and think Crick has some of the same skills that has made Watt successful.

    The Raiders and Jets don't seem to mind character issues. Maybe Fonzo ends up with one of them.

    Good call on pete Carroll too
