*Holden swaps first round pick in the DL round and first round pick in the LB round for Dan’s first round pick in the LB round and second round pick in the DL round


Through some wheeling and dealing that left everyone confused (even me), I wound up with the top two picks and couldn’t be happier. Lattimer is a total monster. He’s a freak athlete. A total game changer. Will he eventually fail a drug test? No doubt. Worth the risk. And to make up for all of his character flaws, I took the most wholesome guy in the draft. Julius is an incredibly talented athlete. He’s an All-American and the heart of the team.


I’m not going to lie, this was my weak point of the draft.  I had Campbell and Lattimer in mind, but selecting third overall hurt.  I was left to my own devices which, in all honesty, can be a scary thing.  That being said, I came out with a couple of good players to battle in the trenches.  Andre Krimm is just a solid player (HE’S SINBAD!) and Jefferson?  Whoa boy, get him mad and watch him work.  They’re not flashy picks, but they’ll be a solid opposition to any offense.


I came into the day with three targets in mind – I got two of them.  I hoped to grab Vernon Littlefield in the second round, but Holden snatched him up.  In Switowski and Ivory Christian, I have a powerful duo to collapse the pocket.  But more importantly, I invested in character.  Switowski is a simple man, focused on friendship and coloring books.  Christian is a silent leader.  Teams need that, families need that.  I’m building a family.


My defensive line is pretty loaded for not having a first round pick. I picked up a serious sleeper in Vernon Littlefield. Littlefield is a baller on and off the field. Greg Meaney is an awesome antagonist in The Waterboy, he sounds like a choo choo train. The most important thing that occurred during this round was me acquiring the first pick tomorrow for linebacker day. In the words of Bart Scott, “CAN’T WAIT!!!”
