    Without googling, can anyone think of a white safety in the history of the NFL that ever succeeded besides John Lynch?

    It was a roll of the dice. That's all I'm saying.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    Hopefully, we found a punt returner in Stroman.

    We have been lacking at PR for such a long time and a good returner can help turn the field position battle in our favor as much as Tress Way does.

    I would also look to put Apke back there with his 4.3 speed, recalling that he used to be a wide receiver before transitioning to safety.

    Eric Weddle comes to mind.

    Adam Archuleta and draft picks like Rocky McIntosh are the reason clubs have GMs and don't allow OCs and DCs to run their own draft.

    Gregg Williams wanted Archuleta and Cerrato went out and spent an ungodly amount to bring him here from the Rams.

    Williams also wanted us to draft McIntosh, so we moved up in the second round to take a player that had chronic knee problems in college and had been taken off a number of teams boards because of medical concerns.

    Once again, it appears we were bidding against ourselves for these players.

    Was anyone not tuned in?

    We had a guy at work that is in New Zealand and he was getting wrap-ups of the NFL draft by logging on at 4am.

    I was at my daughter's wedding. If not for running a major skins website, I probably wouldn't have been 'tuned in'.

    But I hear you
