Jerry Angelo has had a solid first couple days to the 2011 draft.  Offensive tackle, CHECK!  Defensive tackle, CHECK!  And now he picks up a safety named Chris Conte from California.  Mike Mayock from NFL Network is high on Conte.  He's a converted corner (not LB) that played free safety for Cal last season.

Dane's take: Well damn.  Conte is like an athletic version of Craig Steltz, so I must bid my LSU Tiger adieu.  If Conte adds 8-10 pounds to his frame, he could make a real impact.  Look for special teams play early and often from Conte in 2011. Danieal Manning unavailable for comment.

Stay tuned for a recap on tonight's picks.
