    I agree that was the intent. I don't think it's working. People are not patient. I know I'm not. Lets get these guys on board and starting to work out with their teams.

    BiH I think that was the idea also, but all it did was give MLB an opening to move into the spotlight b/c there is just nothing else to talk about NFL wise, mocks at this point(trust me I know) are almost redundant.

    I think they chase money so hard, they miss the forest for the trees sometimes.

    If they're smart they'll move it up at least a week to the first weekend in May or the very last in April. I know the teams wanted more time to prepare following FA but by now they should have pretty much collected the data they want and we're still 3 weeks away. BB has begun, the NHL playoffs have begun and interest is waning because it's just rehashing the same poop day after day.

    Well on the bright side since my daughter's wedding is May 3rd at least I won't miss it while I'm playing Padre de la novia and host to my other daughters and grandson from Tuesday on. Early May is gonna be a little hectic.

    I agree that to fix the Dline we need to add a top guy from the draft. I know most people here like Collins, but I have my doubts. I didn't think he was very good against the run last year. After we have a long term fix for the line, then we move into the safety position.

    Don't sleep on Collins...the kid can ball, and he was outplaying Melton last year before he got hurt. Every guy I work with who knows him say all he needs is a shot.

    The draft was pushed back because the Rockettes had a show scheduled for the weekend the draft was to be held at radio city. They should have just found another place to hold it. You have the garden in NYC, there's Brooklyn, the prudential center and izod in jersey...plenty of places.

    butkus, all the Chicago Bearas Beat guys talk about how much people inside HH LOVE Collins and said they saw him as every bit Melton's equal, that's all you heard during TC last year, so it doesn't surprise me that there are people you know that know Collins and think he'll be good given a shot.

    Every DL player last year sucked against the run, so did every lb cb and S, the entire D sucked last year.

    Collins is also a 4 year vet. He isn't elite and I don't see him developing into a difference maker. (We should stop discussing this in a safety thread...)
