Thanks for the update, Reb.  Though expected, it's still welcome news about Ferris!

Draft-siging deadline expired last night.  All 1st and 2nd rounders ended up signing.  Ferris was by far the highest-paid of the regular 2nd rounders.  Only two others over $2, one at $2.0 and one at $2.35. 

Only two 3rd-rounders got more then Paciolla.

Brock Porter's $3.7 4th round deal blew both Ferris's and Mule's deals out of the water, but no other 4th rounders got more than Mule. 

As deeg noted, whatever you think of the strategy, it appears they executed and were able to get some guys they really liked.  Time will tell whether the guys they liked can develop and will be worth liking!
