Wasn't it just grand how Lord Howie Roseman swindled the clueless Cowboys out of their TE pick. Not to mention the kid's name is Dallas and it was done in Dallas!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

David Akers reminding Cowboy fans how the draftees weren't born the last time the Cowboys did something significant was classic too.

As far as former PSU players on the Cowboys, Giants and Redskins go, I'll root for them individually. However, I absolutely, positively will not root for those teams.

No way.

No how.

No sir.

BW - It's on my Christmas list. I'm not in a hurry. LOL.

Agree w/ Llama - this is prime recruiting material for CJF when he's talking to future recruits. Saquon went higher than Zeke, higher than Gurley, etc. Knowing Franklin, he'll have billboards of Saquon's face plastered all over State College. Heh!

I've also been reading about this Kyle Lauletta kid and what a steal he was in the 4th round. He potentially could be Eli's replacement.

I'm just as pleased with the forced competition between Lauletta and Webb. Figure one of them will step to the front. Lauletta's arm strength may be an issue, though I am not unhappy they took a flyer in the fourth round. Unliked Reese who would've burned a 3rd rounder inexplicably.

Oh, and Crow, I wouldn't expect you to, and that wasn't my point. I still root for Lee to get his 10 tackles come hell or high water...as long as the Giants win by 30...

What makes you think his arm strength is an issue? I never heard of this kid prior to a few days ago, but the write-ups I've seen say his arm is fine.

Even though I've been a die hard NYG fan since last Thursday I'll still root for Wiz to have a good game when they play Eagles - hopefully the NYGs 7 sacks that day will all come from the right side and after Wiz watches Saquon rack up around 357 all purpose yards he will think to himself - I'm going to sign with the NYGs for 2019. :lol:

Scouting reports lauded his quick release, ability to make good decisions and smarts, but questioned his arm strength, and said he had to have perfect mechanics to get it deep down the field.

Put it this way: he wouldn't have lasted til the 4th round if there wasn't something in his profile that was below grade.
