Never heard of him. Hopefully he can beat out Quentin Moses.

I can't find any stats or video. He has a really cool football name though.

Would have much rather had Frantz Joseph, who I cannot believe hasn't been drafted yet.

I believe Joseph will be a feel good story for some team. Hopefully we don't get the Folsom Prison Blues. :)

Thanks for good laugh (Parcell comment) in what could be called a very confusing day.

Isn't Lee Robinson, Alcorn State, still available? Maybe at 237?

THis is my argument with this draft either pu the guy in FA or trade down and get him later. I mean get 3-4 more 7th round picks . Get a guy that is smaller and studlier as well as these guys that are hiding under rocks. Bill P would have never drafted a Z Thomas or a J Taylor which is my knock on him. He misses some good football players.

This is a horrible pick IMO, I realize its the 7th round but when you have players like Mike Mickens, Otis Wiley, and Frantz Joseph still available you cant pass them up. I also understand that we already addressed the secondary but these are quality players and Joseph would at least make an impact in special teams.

I am still devastated we did not select Terrence Taylor instead of Hartline.

I am still devastated we did not select Duke Robinson, or Herman Johnson instead of John Nalbone.

I am still devastated we did not select Rey Rey in the 1st and get our CB in the 2nd.

But hell, who am I to judge, I am only getting my Sports Management Degree to do this for a living.

I agree...Parcells wouldn't have selected Thomas...he doesn't fit a 3-4. Possibly Taylor...but you can't go back and change time.

Very good points and I stand with you but JD fOLSUM
does have a degree in "zoology" which may come in handy with the dogs we drafted in day two

At 229lbs he runs a 4.83 40. Small and slow. Not surprised at all given how I fell about our 2nd day selections.

Not to make an totally inappropriate comparison, but... no late round inside linebacker described as small and slow has ever made any noise in Miami? lol
