I wonder what kind of job requires an African-American studies degree? I mean, what's his back-up plan if the NFL thing doesn't happen? :whoknows:

read the whole sentence:

Graduated with a degree in criminology in four years and is working on two more degrees, in English and African-American studies

It actually sounds like he is a VERY intelligent young man. I'm happy to welcome him to our beloved skins. I hope they play "eye of the Tiger" whenever he does something good.

Think he'll wear 56?

Well, I was actually referring to the guy in the 2nd paragraph. No one is questioning intelligence here. Read my whole sentence. :laugh:

unfotunitly as always we got one good player out of the draft and nothing else. we havent got anything past the second round besides cooley in god knows how many years. id like to see us have a great year with all of our picks

Yeah, unfortunately we didn't pick up Reggie Bush with one of our 7th rounders...

I mean come on. How the heck do you know we didn't get anything with our later picks. Do you think the Patriots picked Tom Brady because they knew he'd be a future stud? No. They picked up someone they hoped would prove to be valuable enough to actually make the roster.

Did you read any of the bios? Seems like a couple of these guys have been top notch players at one point in time in their careers (high school, I-AA, etc.) These later rounds are where you take a little risk and hope you land a gem. If the injuries are an anomaly, a couple of these guys could really pan out
