I'm also glad we didn't bite on Manti T'eo. I like him but not as a 1st rd player. I wouldn't have been overly pissed if we had taken him, but we made the right selection based off what was available and what positions we needed to fill.
Taking the DT in rd 1 gives us more options going forward I'd like to see one of Minter LB LSU, Alonso LB Oregon, Bostic LB Florida, Ball RB Wisconsin or Hunt DE SMU in the 2nd rd and then maybe a corner or safety in rd 3.
I just want t0 comment on Trent Richardson.
He already has shown he can be a highly productive RB in the NFL, he will only get better
