That's it, the 2012 NFL Draft officially came to an end Saturday night. And we wonder: What will our draft guru Mike Mayock do with himself now?
Before we start thinking of ways for Mayock to spend his summer, let's first recap his review of these past three days. Good news: There's a lot of good to go around. Bad news: Teams looking to get a leg up in the AFC might have a difficult time.
Another traditional AFC powerhouse, the Pittsburgh Steelers, did well. In fact, they did better than that. They were perfect in Mayock's eyes.
"I liked every player the Steelers drafted," Mayock said. "They got two players that were first-round picks with David DeCastro and (second-rounder) Mike Adams for their biggest position of need, offensive line. I love Sean Spence. (Alameda) Ta'amu is a big need at nose tackle. And Chris Rainey ... I mean, LaMichael James, Isaiah Pead ... Chris Rainey is in that conversation."
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 ...**
Mayock, though, loves what they did offensively.
"I like what Houston did with the two wide receivers," Mayock said. "I like the fact that they got Devier Posey, who can line up on the other side, and I also like Keshawn Martin, slot receiver, return specialist. I look at Houston, and in my heart that's a good team that got better and is a legitimate Super Bowl contender."
They don't call Mayock the best in the biz for nothing. These are the kinds of things you want him saying about your team after the draft.
The rest of the AFC will have to deal with it.
