If they pulled off those first 4 picks that would be amazing. Not a fan of your OL choices, but that doesn't mean I'm right. They could be 3 future All Pros.

Keeping my fingers crossed.
As far as the O-Line goes, have a feeling pickings will be somewhat limited.  Last pick - D2 kid from Clintonville, 6'4" 310.

Cool, love the Wisconsin kids angle. I'll have to check him out. Also like your CB choices, Nelson and Meeks are 2 of my favorite CB's in the draft.

I think that's a very solid draft and I'd be very happy with it.  OL is such a tough place to project, so getting big athletes and hoping to develop the skills there seems like a good place to start.  I really like what I've read about Greg Senat and would love to see him as a development guy.  If the light goes on, he could be a stud.

The Upper Iowa "Peacocks"!!

They were in out conference when I was in school (IIAC), nestled in the limestone bluffs of northeastern Iowa in the town of Fayette.

I wonder if their colors are still powder blue & white?

Have had some pretty decent players come out of the IIAC over the years.

Vern Denherder (DE/Dolphins).....Central College/Pella, IA
Wilber Young (DE/KC).........William Penn/Oskaloosa, IA
Damon Harrison (DT/currently on Giants).........William Penn, Oskaloosa, IA

Plus there's a CB in this draft (Michael Joseph) from Dubuque U.

GO IIAC!!

Nebraska Wesleyan Prairie Wolves take down the D3 hoops title. NFL talent abound in the IIAC, the glory days are here and now in the D3 world of the Hawkeye state.

Wait, William Penn isn't IIAC. The NAIA never gets any love.  :D

UIU Peacocks are still powder blue and white with a little navy blue thrown in.
Changed their logo last season. Still a peacock , but an Angry peacock! Very proud of my son who is attending college there as well as playing football.

But they used to be in the IIAC. Twice in fact!

First time around was from 1922 to 1954, and then again from 1962 to 2001.

I was in school 73' to 77', so they were in the IIAC when I was in school. (actually didn't know they had left the IIAC and D-III to go NAIA. Thanks for that heads up RT)
