    Our boy J-Lau has played like a man possessed. Very impressed indeed--I thought he was the wrong pick over Rey, glad I didn't have to pull the trigger on that one.

    I really liked Byrd as well. I thought we'd even have a shot to grab him in the 3rd as a CB. Surprised to see that he is playing that well though! I truly hope that the powers that be recognize that Defensive rookie of the year is not a popularity contest, rather something based on skill and contribution. If this is the case, I'd think our guy is a lock.

    I was surprised he wasn't taken when we got him. I remember sitting down to watch our 2nd pick, and when they announced it was James I was very surprised he was still there!
    Very glad we got him! Looks like a guy who will feel a need for 10+ years!
