Open Thread: 2008 NFL Draft Day Two


Sunday 9am/CST  ESPN/NFL Network

Day two of the draft today and I hope it goes as well as yesterday. The Saints gave up their third round pick to the Patriots to get Ellis, but received a fifth round pick, and without a fourth rounder they won't be on the clock until the fifth round, where they have two at No. 146 and No. 164. They have one pick in the sixth round at No. 178 and one pick in the seventh round at No. 218.

As far as the Shockey trade is concerned, I think it's dead. I saw Giants GM Jerry Reese on ESPN tonight and he said a trade wasn't going to happen. Ralph Vacchiano at the NY Daily News wrote this article yesterday and Reese confirmed that at a press conference...

"Jeremy Shockey is our starting tight end, guys" he said. "I’m going to leave it at that. Let’s talk about our draft pick. There’s really nothing to talk about. Jeremy Shockey is our starting tight end and really that’s the end of the story."

This is an open thread, so talk it up. I will join in with you guys.
