April 30, 2012

The 2012 NFL Draft is in the books and one long and eventful weekend.  It’s time now to break down the draft and see who did a good job, and well, who didn’t do so well.

CAROLINA – Good with Luke Kuechly at No. 9. Versatile offensive lineman Amini Silatolu (40) ought to carve out a nice role, too, and it’s hard to argue with any of Carolina’s other picks. Getting WR Joe Adams (103) and CB Josh Norman (143) in the mid-rounds can’t be overlooked.

CINCINNATI – Bengals landed several potential starters including CB Dre Kirkpatrick (17) and G Kevin Zeitler (27).

INDIANAPOLIS – I would like to have seen an earlier WR pick, but getting the electric T.Y. Hilton (92) and a pair of tight ends (Coby Fleener at 34 and Dwayne Allen at 64) gives Andrew Luck some nice weapons.

MINNESOTA – Nice pickup for OT Matt Kalil at number 4… he’s ready to play yesterday! In addition, subsequent pickups of S Harrison Smith (29), CB Josh Robinson (66) and WR Jarius Wright (118) just add to that belief. Now it’s up to coach Frazier to get them ready for a tough conference battle.
