Pick made, PM sent, entertaining offers for 138 if anyone's interested.

Powers is a really technically sound pass protector and even at Guard I value this highly enough to overlook potential athleticism issues in the run game. The Philadelphia O Line is at risk of growing old together and adding another youngster helps mitigate that.

Pick made, PM sent to Chris.

I know Joseph has some ugly tape in there, but oh boy, when he looks good is there plenty to work with. If he was treated as a plug and play starter you would have to tolerate some blown plays there as he currently plays a bit "point and steer" rather than reading the whole field, but we don't need that from him. We can bring him into the rotation, and develop him both in terms of his bulk and his reading of the game.

Not so long ago we were heavily reliant on Sean Lee, who has been great, but injury prone. Suddenly this gives us a very dynamic and youthful group with him being added to Smith and Vander Esch.

There is a lot I like about this kid, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if someone falls in love with him and takes him higher than this.

Pick made, can someone let Paul know the Chargers are on the clock.

Happy to get Oliver where I have, certainly rate him above some of the TEs that have already been taken.

Good player. I gave him serious consideration for the Cowboys with the pick before you. Completely agree, he is better than some TEs that have already gone.

Nice pick, he was my plan B at TE if I hadn't gone down the route of an early TE (which is the one area of my draft for Denver this year I am currently still having second thoughts about)

PM'd Paul as well

And as a Gator, just loved watching Joseph play, have ignored the ugly tape Gritt

Certainly the round for the Cowboys to look for LB's. A nice bit of security too in terms of hammering a long term deal for Jaylon Smith. I haven't watched him play, but I like the pick in terms of what you've done so far.

He was my 'Plan B' to Drew Sample. Looks more athletic on tape than he tested. Huge mits too, 10 3/4" - should help when it comes to catching the ball!
