The Connecticut Huskies never had a draft pick higher than the third round in their history until today as William Beatty makes it three first day picks for the school. He joins new Patriot Darius Butler, also in the second round, and now Colt running back Donald Brown in the first round. Beatty is a solid, but not spectacular, fundamental offensive lineman, who the Giants hope can help keep the fairly immobile Eli Manning on his feet. The York, Pennsylvania kid is 6’6″ and 291 pounds.
