Slow morning here on the board so a topic I thought would be interesting. Who's your NFL team and who do you want them to draft?
Also, the other side, which team would be an ideal landing spot for your favorite College players?
As a Bears fan, I don't have a favorite, but they better get at least 2 OL in the draft and another UDFA or 3. I'd be surprised if Fisher is there at 20, but I wouldn't mind them taking the OG Cooper. As I see it we've got a center, a guard, and possibly a RT if he can stay healthy. If Lewan had gone, I'd have loved to see him in blue and orange. The other position of need is at LB. If Urlacher comes back, it won't be for long and Briggs is getting old too.
In terms of favorite players, it'd be the rich getting richer, but I think the Pats should draft Denard. BB has been a very creative offensive mind (know anyone else who would hand off to a TE like he does with Hernandez?) and the last few M players to head there have flourished. I think the blueprint for how to use Denard is there with how Percy Harvin and Randall Cobb have been used... maybe the Steelers? They've had quite a few college-qbs become solid WRs. I know MGoShoe has been dreaming of a backfield with RGIII and Denard... which would suck for everyone else.
Who's your team? Who would you draft if you were the GM? Where would you like to see your favorite college players land?
Per Tom VH's twitter:
@TomVH: Confirmed that WR Laquon Treadwell will be announcing his decision on Thursday at 5 between Ole Miss, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
Too bad I thought he would be the next #1.
[EDIT] Date set for Thursday January 17th.
Sorry if somebody asked this in another thread, they are all very long and I am extremely lazy. We all assumed that Hoke decided to take a 6th because Lewan was leaving, and I know a few are visiting this weekend (maybe). I also know that we told our other commits at one point we were only taking 5, if we take a 6th do we risk losing one of our commits? Do we even need 6 in this class? Discuss.

How cool would it be if the whole arena was chanting Taylor Lewan? Make it happen like the guys with Brady hoke painted on their chests a few years ago.
I know there is already a thread on his announcment, but I think a thread celebrating what appears to be a completely selfless decision on Lewan's part is needed. It just goes to show you how much character and determination he has. Truly a class act!
Thanks for showing us all what it truly means to be a Michigan Man, Taylor.
