Draft aftermath

One of the things that struck me most about the NFL draft was the comments Packers linebackers coach Winston Moss made about Desmond Bishop. He essentially disregarded Bishop’s time in the 40-yard dash, instead focusing on his skills on the football field. Moss basically made a distinction between timed speed and football speed. He said Bishop was fast enough on the football field to make the necessary plays for them. It was refreshing to hear an NFL coach that isn’t so obsessed with measurables.

To hear the Moss press conference about Bishop, go to http://www.packers.com/draft/2007/av/ and click on the appropriate link from Round 6. You can also hear the Bishop conference call there (warning: you must have realplayer to hear).

    I also noted that Hughes was picked up by the Colts. Everyone said he would fit into a “Tampa Two” defense, and this was confirmed since Tony Dungy invented it. Although he dropped some spots, he ended up in a position where he can succeed — Dungy has proven to be patient with talent.
