MARTY BLAKE'S POST-DRAFT ANALYSIS:

"Too many teams will tell me, "I like Joe Blow, but if I was picking 16th, I'd take him. I'm picking 13th." It's a great example of what I've been preaching for years. If you like him, take him. Don't worry about him being too early or anything else. Fred Jones is a winner. Fred Jones is a terrific basketball player and I went up to Oregon for four days to watch him play."
