A few things stand out:

- Only one offensive lineman drafted. That's downright scary. We have to assume Shanahan already has free agents in mind because it'd be criminal to leave the OLine in the state it's in now. (Ryan Harris)

- 3 straight draft picks from Nebraska. I only watched one Cornhuskers game all year, so I can't bring much to the table here. Here's a link to Roy Helu Jr.'s highlight reel. The kid can certainly juke. Niles Paul's highlight reel is spectacular...if you like DeSean Jackson-esque football.

- 3 Wide Receivers. That makes me happy. Hopefully drafting a U pass-catcher will help Tana want to come back that much more (for likely less $).

- Two defensive linemen with the first two picks. When was the last time that happened in DC? The answer: 1984. (Bob Slater and Steve Hamilton)

- While all these picks look good, realistically half of these guys will make the team. Any early guess who DOES make it from the later picks?
