The DC Skins played the first round well, avoiding the Gabbert-hole and gaining a desperately-needed 2nd round pick from Jacksonville.

They filled one of their needs (though not a top need) with Ryan Kerrigan from Purdue, who projects as the OLB opposite Brian Orakpo. He reportedly is solid rushing the passer as well as versus the run, ball-hungry with more effort than athleticism. Holy shit, that sounds like a good pick. My own sources claimed that Washington was going to re-pick Heath Shuler.

Detroit is trying to build a serious D-line (why didn't Millen think of that?), the Vikings reached for a QB, the Packers smartly went O-Line and the Raiders didn't have a first-round pick because they are retarded.

My favorite pick? Steelers take DE Cameron Heyward from Ohio State. Son of the late legendary Craig "Ironhead" Heyward, I'll be keeping my eyeballs on this monster prospect. Great lineage, fills great need, great pick.

Detroit isn't trying to build a serious d-line; they now have one. It may be time to work on that O-Line a bit, seeing as Matt Stafford is about to become the new David Carr.

Ryan Kerrigan seems solid to me as well. When they traded down, I thought we might see either Prince or Ingram, or a further trade down. But another Motor Guy on the Edge? I'll take that, gladly.

I'm told we should be excited by Hankerson, as well.
