Virginia OT Eugene Monroe
TonyG88 with the pick...
You win Football Games in the trenches and Eugene Monroe is the only guy left worthy of #3 money. The fact that Albert signed a 1st round guards’ contract outside of the top ten in last years draft will make it cap friendly for him to move to RT and solidify the O-line for years to come, barring injuries.
I would have preferred Aaron Curry all day long, but those damn Lions stole the show. We will have to address our LB corp later in the draft or we’ll be back into the Vermeil era of hoping we have the ball last to score and win.
More from CBS Sports:
Monroe learned to compete while growing up in a family of 16 that included 10 brothers. He's still not a finished product but battled back from a 2007 knee injury and showed impressive durability in 2008. Monroe has a prototype build to play tackle, with good height, long arms and a strong base, but some scouts have noted that he might carry too much weight in his midsection. Still, he shows excellent footwork, balance and the ability to mirror a defender to maintain his position as a roadblock in pass protection. On running plays, he is nimble enough to take one effective block at a defensive lineman and then hustle to take on a linebacker.
Previous pick: OT Jason Smith
Next pick: #4 Seattle Seahawks (mikvogel)

If Aaron Curry is gone, don't you guys see us taking Eugene Monroe? I like him over Jason Smith, although the two almost seem interchangeable nowadays with draftniks.
With Curry and Smith off the board, there is no defensive player available that warrants a #3 selection. Eugene Monroe reunites with former Virginia teammate Branden Albert in KC.
