Reuter: Biggest winners from Day 3
There is no such thing as a bust pick in Rounds 4-7. So which teams found the best value on the draft's final day? Chad Reuter has six in mind. More ...
The draft can be cruel like that sometimes.
Here are some other interesting factoids coming out of Radio City Music Hall:
"There's something where everybody thinks there's a quarterback controversy and all that," Ryan said, referring to having both Sanchez and Tebow on the roster. "When Tannenbaum said,
Hey, we just got [Robert Griffin](/player/robertgriffin/2535771/profile) from Baylor,' I'm like,What?"'
That's Brandon M. Marshall, linebacker out of Nevada, in the fifth round. Trust us, this isn't the first time he's been mistaken for the Chicago Bears' wide receiver.
"Man, I get the comparison all the time, almost every day, people on Facebook, people on Twitter," he said. "Just the other day, somebody tweeted me, 'Who would you like the Bears to pick with 19th pick?' I tweeted back, I said, 'Brandon Marshall, linebacker from Nevada.' Then he was like, 'It would be kind of crazy to have two people with the same name on the same team.'"
Samuel is a Pro Bowl corner. We know little to nothing about this Brown kid. Guess that doesn't say much about what Samuel meant to Philly.
"We had talked about this one day, what if we end up going to the same NFL team?" Childs said. "It would be crazy because we've been to middle school, elementary, high school together. Same college team. Now we're moving on in life and we're still going to be on the same team together."
Nevermind that Thompson never caught a single pass during his college career as a defensive end at SMU. He entered the NFL draft as a tight end anyway. And as it turns out, the 6-foot-6, 259-pounder's gamble paid off when the Tennessee Titans traded up 10 spots to draft him in the fifth round.
"Mom, dad and God gave him size, speed and athletic ability," offensive coordinator Chris Palmer said. "For us to get him where we got him, I mean, there's a reason he took 10 visits. It's not like we're the only one that saw the acorn."
The Redskins drafted SMU guard Josh LeRibeus in the third round Friday, then used their seventh-round pick on his teammate, cornerback Richard Crawford. The pattern continued when Washington drafted Iowa guard Adam Gettis in the fifth round, then selected his teammate, defensive back Jordan Bernstine, in the sixth round.
Seriously, what gives?
