Looks like the 9ers are sticking with G as the starter for now with their pick.
--Can't believe Cincy passed on the OT. Can't fault them for taking a WR who has great chemistry with Burrows though. Still, shades of David Carr, b/c if Burrows gets hit as much as he did last year, Cincy will have no one to blame but themsevles.
Cards pick of Zeven Collins could be a good one. I like his attitude for sure. Here is him talking to the GM:Some post-day 1 draft thoughts:
Denver made a great move getting RB Javonte Williams, easily the best RB left on the board.
Still, even early in rd 2 seems early for RBs doesn't it? We saw Najee and Etienne got in Rd 1!
I think the Niners wanted S Javon Holland or Richie Grant and they're being gone is why we moved back with Vegas.
Niners were clearly not interested in S Moehrig, CB Asante Samuel, WR Rondale Moore and WR Tutu Atwell. I don't get it either.
Drew Pearson was not only great in announcing Dallas's pick at 44, but he was classy in handing over his cap to the Cowboy fan sitting in the chair.
Bills getting Edge players at the end of the 1st rd and 2nd rd. Damn.
5 trades in the first 11 picks of Rd 2. That's gotta be a record.
And Tampa sets off the next QB avalanche by taking Trask, with 3 Qbs going in 4 picks.
Carolina had to wait till Rd 3 to get the OT they wanted in Rd 1.
How freaking awesome was that Randy Savage-impersonating fan that got to sit in the chair on stage? He even had Randy's mannerisms down!
Vegas uses a 3rd to take a LB who just moved over from QB. Are they just trolling everyone with these picks?
Dallas going ALL defense, ALL day in this draft. After the way they performed last year, I don't blame them. This way, at least they have a chance of finding a few good defenders. They sure aren't gonna die from a lack of shooting back!
Overall, really liked what the Jets and Chargers and Chiefs did.
Wasn't a fan of the Rams draft. It just didn't make much sense to me.
Wasn't a fan of Seattle's draft, but it's b/c they keep drafting fast WRs that beat the shit out of the Niner secondary every year.
Houston...oh, Houston...I feel for ya'll.
For the first time in a long time, I thought that ESPN's coverage was better than NFLN's even though I didn't really care for Greenberg running the ESPN show.
Top 10 pick?!I absolutely hate it when teams like Chicago give up a 1st rounder next season and get an A+ in these things. While the team getting the 1st rounder next year get a B+.
That pick is almost a lock to be a top 10 pick IMO next season. The Bears did NOTHING to improve on their team. Nothing. Fields as a rookie isn't likely to be better than Trubisky was in his 4th season.
And the rest of their offseason was mostly just lateral if not just flat out negative like losing Fuller to Denver and then replacing him Trufant. And their defense is only getting older.
Now do the math on how the NFC North is matched up this year against the NFC West and the AFC North instead of the AFCS and the NFCS. And their other schedule draws are against Tampa and the Giants.
Yeah that was a really good trade for the GMen. And don't place any bets on a team from the NFCN making the wild card. This year it is division win or nothing.
