Earlier today, AA ran down some of the big names left on the board through the first two rounds. Here are some of the better known players that ended up being drafted, where they went, and when:
Kevin Smith, UCF: Detroit Lions, 64th overall
Jacob Hester, LSU: San Diego Chargers, 69th overall
Dan Connor, Penn State: Carolina Panthers, 74th overall
Early Doucet, LSU: Arizona Cardinals, 81st overall
Steve Slaton, West Virginia: Houston Texans, 89th overall
Tashard Choice, Georgia Tech: Dallas Cowboys, 122nd overall
John David Booty, USC: Minnesota Vikings, 137th overall
Dennis Dixon, Oregon: Pittsburgh Steelers, 156th overall
Erik Ainge, Tennessee: New York Jets, 162nd overall
Owen Schmitt, West Virginia: Seattle Seahawks, 163rd overall
Geno Hayes, Florida State: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 175th overall
They're about halfway through the sixth round right now (Denver is on the clock at 183), and unless I'm missing somebody, it appears that Erin Henderson, Andre Woodson, Mike Hart and Colt Brennan are still left from the list that AA threw out there earlier.
UPDATE: Brennan is off the board, to Washington with the 186th overall pick. I'm anxious to hear what AA has to say about this. AA says, "please tell me this didn't just happen."
It's not the worst move they could have made since Todd Collins is 45 years old and they don't really have any other backups. With that said.....Colt "F'ing" Brennan?!?!?! They realize they had the worst D-Line in the league right?!?! Ugh.
UPDATE: And there goes Woodson, to the Giants at 198.
UPDATE: And minutes later, Hart goes to Indy at 202, just catching the end of the sixth round.
