QUOTE FOR THE DAY
GM Buddy Nix on the 2011 Draft (from his address to the Monday Quarterback Club on May 10) —  “Draft worked out good for us. It was deep on the defensive side. There were more people there that could play and we needed defensive players. All of them can help us. Marcell was a no-brainer. He’s an exceptional athlete, plays everywhere, is smart. He will play at defensive end in our 3-4 package on 1st and 2nd downs, and then inside during nickel situations with Kyle Williams.”
