Sifting Through the Post-Draft Leftovers

Posted By on Wed, Apr 30, 2008 at 2:37 PM

As America's favorite non-sporting sporting event, the NFL Draft certainly receives a lot of coverage. And, with six players drafted the Hogs were a major factor this year. Here are some links I've been saving up:

* Probably the best thing I read after the draft was this interview with Felix Jones. He landed in a great situation and sounds incredibly excited about it...he refers to it as "a dream come true" three times in a short span. Here's a good quote on how he happy he is to be a Cowboy:
It will be an honor. I know that for sure. That star represents a lot. That is something I am going to wear and play my best and I am just happy now that I am getting a chance to put it on. This is a dream come true for me.

* Of course, there are always naysayers and Arkansas Sports 360 reminds us that some folks in Dallas aren't too happy about Felix being their first round draft pick. (editor's note: Why??)

* On the flip side of that argument, SI's Don Banks has the full story on why Jerry Jones went with Felix and ESPN's John Clayton praises the choice.

* Surely you've been wondering what Warren Sapp thinks about D-Mac going to the Raiders. Well, wonder no more...according to this interview with Michael Silver, he wholeheartedly approves, calling the match "a perfect fit".

* More from Don Banks: he pegs the McFadden vs Bush vs Fargas running back situation in Oakland as one of the top training camp battles to watch.

* Several undrafted Razorbacks were invited to various training camps. Tom Murphy has the latest on Robert Felton, Michael Grant, Matteral Richardson, Weston Dacus and more.

* What does Wally think about all this? Here's his breakdown of the draft.

    Charles Balentine remains well-known among Razorback fans for hitting the 3rd biggest shot in Arkansas history (we'll give you two guesses as to what #1 and #2 are), but many other details of his storied career are slipping away into the mists of time.

    This year's NFL draft has come and gone. ESPN can put Mel Kiper back in the closet, or he can go back to the Pentecostal Church he pastors.
