Basically feels like the draft where we jumped up a bit to grab Cam Robinson at the top of the 2nd.  Hopefully this goes as well as that has looked at times.


Really badly needed to get ourselves a starting RT option, and this feels like a much more appropriate place to grab Taylor.  The Taylor at #7 hype was crazy to me.  #35 though...that's solid.

Kinda sounds like one of these gambles where he could end up with knee (and back?) issues that become more chronic eventually.  But if he's healthy and generally good to go for 4-5 years...ehhh...that's still a really good value if he plays well.


Certainly fits the mentality they apparently want to get back to.  Though it'll be interesting to see how that approach jives with Flip and BDN.

Eh, looked pretty good in pass pro. He may be a mauler/nasty guy in the run game but wouldn't knock him in pass pro because of it.
