Hickey did work tonight... Traded down twice to the end of the second (picking up a 4 and a 5) and took Jarvis Landry, WR from LSU. I've yet to read anything negative about this kid. Mayock and McShay said he is the toughest receiver in the draft bar none. Fights for every ball that comes near him. The only reason he slipped was his 40-time. Dude catches EVERYTHING and gets serious RAC. Has the potential to be a great slot receiver and a serious weapon for Tannehill. Then he traded up in the 3rd with Oakland, (giving up one of our now two 4's) to get Billy Turner, OT NDSU. Looks like he'll get run at both guard and tackle from what Hickey said shortly after making the pick, and could start at guard. Very good day 2, keep up the good work on day 3 Mr. Hickey!
The Landry pick seemed to redeem him a bit, but I really don't like the James pick, especially since it seems the two lineman taken at the beginning of the second round were better. I dunno the guy just looks like an old man that's slow, but maybe I'm wrong.
I guess though that I kind of understand what Hickey has been doing the offseason, which is getting as many guys to fill in the O-line as possible, and hope enough of them are good enough.
