The Vikings need a franchise left tackle badly. Their last franchise left tackle got busted in the "Love Boat" scandal, and is now in Baltimore, where that type of behavior is accepted (if not encouraged). The best left tackle in the draft is the brother of Panthers Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil. And unlike the brother of another Pro Bowl center (*cough*Mike Pouncey*cough*cough*), Matt Kalil's draft stock is not artificially inflated because of his brother. Matt is a legit franchise left tackle, and you don't pass up legit franchise left tackles when they come along.
The Minnesota Vikings select USC LT Matt Kalil.

Squidkid sent me a PM with his top 4 choices for the Browns, since he would not be at his computer when Cleveland's selection was due. And of course, since Holmgren wasn't willing to do what it takes to go get a franchise QB to compete with Ben, Flacco, and Dalton, they've decided that if you can't pass, you might as well run.
The Cleveland Browns select Alabama RB Trent Richardson.
Discipline of Steel PM'ed me his preferred picks for Tampa as well. The best available player on his list happens to be a cornerback, which is nice since Ronde Barber is older than dirt, Aqib Talib may end up in prison, and Eric Wright isn't worth the #1 CB money that Tampa gave him this offseason (he's a #2 CB at best).
The Tampa Bay Bucs select LSU CB Morris Claiborne.
The Rams biggest need is finding weapons for Sam Bradford (especially after Brandon Lloyd jumped ship to following Josh McDaniels to New England in a sad Leonard Pope-Todd Haley like shadow relationship). If Washington hadn't given St. Louis an extra 2nd round pick this year, plus a 1st round pick next year, and another 1st round pick the year after that in order to move up from #6 to #2, the Rams likely would have taken Justin Blackmon at #2 anyway. Now they have that ridiculous bounty of picks (whoops...shouldn't say "bounty" when talking about the team who currently employs Gregg Williams), and Blackmon still falls into their laps at #6 anyway. Neener neener ha ha.
The Rams select Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon.
They've tried it before. They've failed before. And now the Jaguars still need to find a stud DE to put pressure on quarterbacks.
They're going to hope this is the guy that finally changes that trend.
6'1" 264 lb DE from South Carolina
Tannehill, Tannehill, Tannehill. Blah Blah Blah.
You don't make a jump like that in draft stock and deserve it. There are no QBs worth drafting at this point for the Dolphins.
You know who is worth it? A fantastic player who has proven it time and time again.
The Miami Dolphins select:
6'5" 316 lb OG from Stanford
And now Ruthless can't have him.
The Panthers are going to take
Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
more to come later today...
