Default NFL Draft--who do you want?

So who's your team and what would you like them to do in the 1st round?

I'm a Redskins fan and I'd like them to trade down from the 6th pick for more picks in later rounds. Their second pick isn't until the 5th round.

If they stay at 6th I'd like them to pick DT Okoye. Need big time help on the D line and Okoye is smart, big, and athletic.

I don't follow the draft that closely because I don't follow pro football - college football guy here - but that Okoye is certainly an intriguing character. Graduated from HS at 15 or 16. College graduate by 20. 300+ lbs. but from the pics it looks like he has about 10% body fat. Supposedly runs like a gazelle. Amazing!

Ron Mexico's in a heap of sh!t! A house he owned, and, according to him without his knowledge, was used for illegal dog fighting. I don't know how many more chances the NFL commish will give him.

That has been on the local news for a couple of days here, regardless if he resides there are not I am quite positive there is not an rental agreement that absolves him of his cousins less than stellar behavior.

...cops would not have been there if the "cousin" did not get caught with 10 oz. of pot and listed the house as his residence.

According to the search warrant for Michael Vick's property, detectives seized guns, illegal ammunition clips, suspected marijuana and paperwork on dog fighting.

Included on the list was a semi-automatic gold-metal 45-caliber pistol along with other guns. Investigators said this has turned into a much bigger case than they ever expected, and will take some time to complete.

Chopper 10 captured exclusive video of animal control officers removing the last of more than 70 dogs from Michael Vick's property on Friday.

While the Newport News native and quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons owns the house, he does not live there. His relatives do.

Sources said that the suspected dog fighting compound at Vick's Surry County home is much bigger than they first realized. It is going to take them some time to get down to the bottom of it.

Animal control officers said they also rescued at least ten beagles and said these dogs are commonly used almost as bait to train the larger pitbulls to attack.

Thursday, officers seized truck loads of equipment used for training fighting dogs. They found treadmills, whips, chains, injectable drugs and breeding equipment. Investigators said this is part of one of the biggest and most elaborate dog fighting compounds they have ever seen.

As of Friday night, the 70 plus dogs that were found are all safe. There are animal control officers spread out across several local cities who are taking care of them.

Investigation of Vick's property continues

"I've seen Michael walking dogs, but it didn't look like a fighting dog," said next door neighbor Earnest Hardy.

Investigators are still on the scene Thursday night, nearly 24 hours after the start of the search of the property owned by Atlanta Falcons' quarterback Michael Vick.

Hardy said he hears dogs at all times in the night.

Officials took away several pieces of evidence throughout the day, including a scale with a hook on it used for weighing dogs.

Police said they plan to wrap up their investigation sometime tomorrow afternoon.

Initial drug investigation turns up suspected dog fighting setup on Michael Vick's property

Investigators were originally working on a suspected drug case when they went to Michael Vick's property on Wednesday. On arrival, officials surprisingly discovered a suspected dog fighting setup.

Animal control officers said this is one of the biggest dog fighting cases they have ever seen. Extra help had to be called in from other jurisdictions to help with the investigation.

"Some had significant scarring. Some had wounds. Some had eye problems," said Kathy Strouse from Chesapeake Animal Control.

Court documents stated that 30 animals were found tethered to heavy logging chains attached to car axles buried in the ground. Equipment used to train fighting dogs was found on the property, including treadmills, chains, whips and injectable drugs.

There was no food, water or veterinary care for the animals.

Agents with the regional drug task force were initially investigating Davon Boddie, who lives in Vick's house. Last week, Hampton police charged Boddie with alleged Possession with Intent to Sell. They found bags of marijuana in his car and a gun under the passenger's seat.

Officials were investigating for more evidence when they stumbled upon the dogs behind the house.

Investigation of activities on property owned by Michael Vick widens

The investigation into activities at a palatial home owned by NFL quarterback Michael Vick deepened Thursday after investigators found substantial evidence that several dogs kept on the property were being used for fighting.

Animal control officer told WAVY News that they found 70 dogs on the property. Most of the animals are pitbulls. Some had injuries and scars. Many were malnourished.

Amidst the evidence found was something called a "rape stand"; a device used to tether a female dog so male dogs can have easy access to the female for breeding.

A State Police spokesperson confirmed that the department was working with a regional drug task force. They searched the property looking for evidence and a person. The spokesperson would not tell WAVY News what the evidence is that they were searching for or who the person is.
