Roquan Smith is a good pick.  He will anchor the middle of the D for many years to come.

Colts were supposedly torn between Nelson and Smith

Either starts from day one and plays 10+ year at pro bowl level, couldn't go wrong either way.

Need pass rushers tomorrow

Smith is a damn good player but I still wanted Nelson then Fitzpatrick.

honestly I was surprised he made it to Denver. I couldn't believe Cleveland took ward over Chubb. happy with smith, but ya, I would've preferred nelson.

3 solid guards available at the start of the second round.  I?d say that?s the route we go.  Will Hernandez from UTEP is a beast and would be a great grab if he?s still there at number 7 tonight, but Williams from Texas isn?t a slouch either.

I like the pick for where they were in the draft..obviously they could have really used a guy like Chubbs, but they have so many needs. have to get some help on the O line this draft

The 4th round pick was a  bit of a reach but the rest was good, solid A- ish draft

I expect the top 3 guys to start day one
