I figured Id get this up and going. Draft starts in an hour. Cant wait to see where Molk and Hemingway end up.

It's going to be a rough transition. 

If he's got one thing going for him it's that 2 of the only 3 D-III players drafted into the NFL that I can think of off the top of my head made an impact for the Lions. The two Lions being Pete Metzelaars and Clint Kriewaldt, with Pierre Garcon being the third.

David Molk (if he's available) and (dare I say it) Edwin Baker would be nice grabs in 6 and 7, respectively. Hoping Hemingway gets drafted today.

I was just checking out the list of Big10 players still on the board, and I'm really surprised some of these guys are still around: Dennard, McNutt, Ebert (maybe not so surprising, actually), Cunningham, Herron, Moye, Henry. There's a lot of good, if not spectacular, talent from the Big10 lingering.

(I didn't include Molk or Hemingway, because I think we're all probably at least a little surprised those guys are still available.)

Dude was 50-3 in his career and 2 of those losses came from missed field goals while the other was a 1 point loss to TCU in the 2008 Poinsetta Bowl.

The NFL doesn't pick it's players by how many games they win.  It has scientifically perfected it's rating system by using a combination of non-football agillity drills and strength measurements.  Don't forget that important intelligence test. 

/s (that last part at least)

The Texans told Van Bergen prior to the draft that they'd take him in the 6th round if he was still there.  Let's see if they stick to their word in a few picks...
