SB Nation's Mock Draft is speeding right along. Bleeding Green Nation made their pick at #26 for the Philadelphia Eagles, taking CB Chris Houston. Good pick by BrianG. John Morgan at Field Gulls has an excellent analysis of the best and worst picks so far in the Mock Draft. Like John, I'm really scratching my head at New England's pick: Eric Weddle, a safety out of Utah that literally NO ONE expects to go in the first three rounds, let alone the first one. John Morgan goes further:
We're on pick #27 now, which is New Orleans' pick. Since we have no Saints blog (yet), GeauxTigers from our LSU blog, And The Valley Shook, will pick for the Saints. Very soon, I'll have to pick for the Colts. I still have no idea who to take.
In other related news, The Colts are looking at possibly signing RB
Kevin Kevan Barlow. Barlow made a name for himself in SF, where he once compared current-Niners coach Mike Nolan to Adolph Hitler. Last year, Barlow was traded to the Jets, who cut him this off-season. The Colts are looking to team Barlow with Addai. Not sure how I feel about this seeing as Barlow really was nothing more than a one-hit-wonder. In 2004 he had a great season. Since, he's been nothing. So, I'm sort of "meh" on him.
