After a bit of technical difficulties with the provided wireless network, I am on-line and running, ready to give you my first hand account of what is happening in New York, as it happens, from just below the ESPN crew here is Radio City Music Hall.
The Jags followed, and despite rumors that the Broncos might make a move here, they choose to stand pat and the Jaguars selected OL Eugene Monroe from Virginia. Monroe fell to the Jaguars in alot of ways after the Bengals did what Cincinnati does, take a chance on a player with character issues, Andre Smith.
My initial reaction to the pick, not good. The Broncos need defense, and alot of it. I will say this. Sometimes the best friend of a defense is a solid running game and Moreno was the best back in the Draft.
What is funny, I was a proponent of getting a stud running back this year before Shanahan was fired. That changed after the firing, but it still fits what the Broncos are going to try and do, especially with the situation at quarterback -- run the ball, run the ball, run the ball.
There is no doubting Ayers' ability to get to the QB. My one concern, however, was the guy only started one season for the Vols. He does provide instant athleticism to the defense and for that I am grateful!
Lions fans, chanting 'DE-FENSE' before the pick, loudly BOOOOOO when the pick of a Tight End is announced. The Lions have done nothing to address their putrid defense with their two first round picks....
