Myron Lewis and Thomas Welch get drafted

No surprise that cornerback Myron Lewis was drafted, going to the Buccaneers early in the third round. Tackle Thomas Welch was a guy most Vandy fans believed should have been drafted, but nobody was completely confident it would happen. This evening, though, Welch was the first pick in the seventh round, to the Patriots, and all was right with the world.

And to top it off, Ryan Hamilton got an invitation to the Saints camp. Man, Ryan's worked hard to recover from a torn pectoral in the LSU game, and I wouldn't bet against him.

Just think, our entire starting secondary from the 2008-2009 season is in the NFL in some form or another — corner Moore with the Bears (though he'd better get crackin'), corner Lewis with the Bucs, safety Langford with the Eagles practice squad and Hamilton getting a shot with the defending Super Bowl champs.

Langford is actually with Kansas City. He was signed off the Eagles practice squad very late in the year, I wanna say like week 15.

Imagine if D.J. had stayed another year, no one would have been able to pass on us last year.


Thanks, Aaron. Yeah, I wish D.J. had stayed. And I bet he wishes he'd stayed. And I bet the Bears wish he'd stayed.
