Pembroke Pines Patteeus' draft is over and while we didn't get everyone we wanted, I'm comfortable that we addressed some needs and stockpiled some promising depth.

1.14 - Sheldon Richardson, DT - Due to a strength at DE4, I've been thinking of switching to a 4-3 this year, but I'm short at DT. Star Lotulelei was probably a better fit since Richardson is going to play DE3 for the Jets, but this was kind of a Mizzou homer pick and I'm hoping he ends up being the better player.

2.38 - Giovani Bernard, RB -Aside from QB, my team was pretty weak at offensive skill position talent. I went with Bernard over Montee Ball because I like his prospects behind Cincy's offensive line better than Ball's prospects on the pass happy Broncos.

3.62 - Bacarri Rambo, S - I also needed help in my secondary. My team doesn't care about failed drug tests. We just care about on field production and he's going to be a starter. The guy better not get himself kicked out of the league though.

4.86 - Terrance Williams, WR - I wanted Quinton Patton, but Anchorage took him 4 spots ahead of me. Terrance Williams will probably see more action in a pass oriented offense this year, so I may end up getting lucky by having to go with my fallback option.

5.110 - Luke Willson, TE -We needed some star power and who better than the actor who played Kelso's older brother on That 70's Show... wait, nevermind. It turns out that this Luke Wilson will be a backup in Seattle this year and if we've learned one thing this offseason, it's that anyone who ever set foot in Seattle's training camp is worth a roster spot on your team.

6.134 - David Quessenberry, OT -Both my 6th and 7th round picks played well in the preseason and will have 2nd string offensive lineman roles on teams with good offensive lines this season. Offensive line was a strength of Pembroke Pines last year, but it's good to get some young prospects in the mix for the future. Quessenberry will play guard for Houston.

7.158 - Ricky Wagner, OT -I wanted Steeler's rookie Vince Williams here, but again Anchorage stole my pick. It's possible that they have a mole in my front office. In any event, Ricky Wagner will be the 3rd tackle for the Ravens this year and he already made his regular season debut last Thursday when Michael Oher missed some time due to a minor injury. He sucked, but we hope he gets better over time.
