Stay in school kids...?

But really happy for Stevie Brown, good to see him find a place in the draft. Hopefully the Raiders rather good draft class this year is a sign of things to come =)

Then again, Brown was taken by football genius Al Davis, the Mr. Burns of the NFL, who probably thought he was taking Red Grange or something. Still, I'm rooting for the Lions/Pats/Dolphins/Eagles to take DWarren in the 7th or sign him as a FA

Bonus: Stevie got picked right before some OSU LB

... if you leave early and don't get drafted, you are truly Mr. Irrelevant.

I think the strike possibility for 2011 really screwed with some players, DW included.

Also, d-bag Mel Kiper Jr. had DW in the top 3 of junior CBs in November, and then off the list recently.

If hope it works out for him. The potato salad on the buffet table is probably a bit gamy right now.

some really bad info. D Warren could have made a million more just staying in school for one year. I wonder if anyone close to him tried to explain that.

Congrats to Stevie Brown. I bet they try to use him in a similar role in packages that include multiple safeties. Maybe he will bulk up like Cato June did...

Is that Brown projects as a better special teams player, after his stint as a quasi-linebacker allowed him to show his physical toughness. Sixth, seventh round guys are often drafted for ST potential first, with positional development as a bonus.
