Not a good second day IMO.

We drafted two players projected to be undrafted free agents and passed on quite a few players that had better potential to compete for special teams spots, if not spot roles.

I'm happy with the Johnson, Surtain, Colquitt, and Thorpe for the first four picks. All will make the team.

After that, I like Alphonso Hodge- I thought he would be a mid-late round steal, and we did pick him up. "Boomer" Grigsby- I'm just totally sold on this guy, and hope this kid will make the team because he just knows what to say and has that reckless, yet intelligent attitude you just love in a player. Most likely, he'll be a special teams player- but a guy like that ought to improve your special teams.

After that- A resounding F! They not only got reaches in the later rounds, but they picked guys who they could have picked up as undrafted free agents. I felt as though a handful of guys were sitting out there in limbo just ripe for picking, but we passed on these tremendous projects that will not make the team. They might as well call them tomorrow and say, "We're sorry if we got you excited, but there's really no reason to show up to training camp. Here's fifty bucks for your troubles."
