Can anybody tell me how many future draft picks they picked up?  It's got to be an impressive number.

Got to admit I scratched my head with a lot of the picks -- but as somebody said, if they hit on 50% of them, then it's going to be a very good draft.  Plus the extra future picks.

I hear Dallas is desperately trying to trade with the Browns to get the first pick tonight -- maybe they want Connor Cook.

Or Noah Spence . . .

I certainly enjoyed that first round.  It was fun watching the Buckeyes get the honors they deserved, and the Bengals and Browns got better too (and the Bengals stole the player the Steelers coveted with their pick).

Only two drawbacks - I was hoping the Bengals would get one of those Buckeyes, and Zeke is actually going to make me root for the Cowboys.

Mayock has Zeke going 4th to the Cowboys and Bosa going 8th to the Browns (if they still have the pick).

Zeke on the Cowboys would be enough to make me a Dallas fan for a few years.

Bosa to the Browns -- let's just say I hope he brings his winning attitude with him.

Chad Ochocinco couldn't cook either and ended up eating at McDonalds all the time.  And look how he turned out.

Well, he did have a 10 year career and caught a lot of TDs  and stuff -- but he did annoy a lot of people along the way.

Doesn't matter how many good players you have.  You don't get an invitation if you don't beat MSU.

Ask John Cooper.

The most arrogant I've ever seen are fans of that team up north -- they are arrogant when they are champions (Hey, I guess they've gotten one in my 51 years) and they are arrogant when they are losing to Appalachian State. 

You might call them the Champions of Arrogance.

This is the story in this series I've been waiting for.

I've heard Hue Jackson was one of the most anti-Buckeye assistants in Cincinnati, and since now he's the head-man in Cleveland I don't see them picking up many Buckeyes . . . but I'd sure like to see the Bengals get a few pieces of this marvelous Buckeye team on their roster.
