Draft Presser Quote Sheet: Martin Mayhew, 4-30

“We tried to move back and add some more picks today. We thought about trading some future picks to add more picks; we would have liked to have six or seven guys if that would have been possible. But it didn’t work out and we have five.

“We feel good about the two guys that we got today. Hogue is probably, slightly a better athlete than he a linebacker right now – he was playing running back two years ago. He’s played linebacker for two seasons now, but he has a lot of upside; he’s a big, fast guy; he’s physical and he makes a lot of splash plays on tape. Culbreath is a good developmental offensive lineman; very athletic at 6-5, 320 – he’s a real good guy to work with. There were some other guys who were kind of like that who would have been nice to add to our team. But five is a good number.”
