Thank god the wait is over, I was really sweating this one out.

In all seriousness, I love the new CBA. No more worrying about rookie hold-outs. Everyone signs early.

Yup. The toughest spots to sign are, ironically, the 3rd and 4th rounders. I recall a lot of discussion about that last year. 1st and 2nd rounders are slotted pretty quickly, and the 5th-7th rounders are "just happy to be here," but the 3rd and 4th rounders are in that middle ground. I'll be interested to see if that phenomenon holds true again this year.

I really like this guy too.
Gragg's a shade under 6'3" but appears taller. Also he has longer than normal arms at 33 5/8" and of course that tremendous speed.
Marrone was saying yesterday that they want to build some plays for Gragg based on what he did at Arkansas.
This kid will make the team and could easily be an opening day starter based on if Chandler is healthy. I watched his video vs Ole Miss on a day when Tyler Wilson was not sharp and Gragg was quite excellent as a receiver and surprisingly as a blocker.
As a blocker he uses his speed to outflank defenders and seal them inside and while he's not a great head-on, in-line blocker, he uses his athleticism to dominate smaller men at the second level.
This kid ran 4.50 at the combine and has run faster than that. He ran a lot of deep seam routes and even when not the primary target, created lots of underneath space in his wake.
This was a really outstanding pick, IMO.

Ahh, yes, thanks. Just the 3rd rounders, it appears, rather than 4th as well. So, we can expect Goodwin to be the last to sign.
