All this discussion about who is going to get picked...its just a whole different attitude now under the Saban/Mueller regime instead of Wanny/Spielman. Before, even when we had first round picks, they were all wastes. With the exception of Chambers, they did a terrible job scouting when we had early picks to use (See Eddie Moore). Last year showed that with good talent evaluation we can bring in guys that will pay immediate dividends. Ronnie is a load at RB, Matt Roth will be a solid contributor, Crowder is a future pro bowler, and Daniels will be a starting CB. Now that is value in your top 4 picks.

True it does feel better knowing Saban is at the Helm, but, with ANY draft pic in any position, you can be a bust whether it be Saban drafting him or not. Lets hope he hits more than he misses but if his draft for years to come end up like his first ones, will have no worries!

going lineman in the first round is a wasted pick IMO its a bail out mid first round because there aren any skill players good enough to be picked and Nick is able to evaluate the talent and will pick whats best for the team at the pick but if a Lineman is left its wasted we have to many other holes ans Houck will do good with anybody given to him

Imagine Houck working with a Pro Bowl level Lineman as opposed to a mid level. Imagine, if you can, that Houck is gone after a while because coaches change teams, get older, and retire.

Thrilled and Estatic that I think every pick will be maximized to garner the best possible value to help this team.

We have a back up plan. USC's O line coach(Forget his name) that we have.
