    With Tannehill surprising slipping past Miami, might the Bills take Tannehill and develop him as the heir apparent to Ryan Fitzpatrick? Well, it was only 6 months ago that they just gave Fitz a seven-year, $62.195 million contract, containing $24 million guaranteed, including a $10 million signing bonus, so no. Besides, Ralph Wilson and Chan Gailey are old...they might not have the patience to live long enough to see Tannehill develop from a college WR (he caught 112 passes for 1596 yards and 10 TD at Texas A&M before being switched to QB) into a bona fide NFL starter at QB.

    Could they go for a BPA pick, putting a tackling machine like Luke Kuechly behind a potentially dominant DL consisting of Mario Williams, Marcel Dareus, Kyle Williams, and Mark Anderson/Chris Kelsay/Shawne Merriman? That would sure be tempting, but they need to fill a need at tackle first. They improved their interior OL in recent drafts, but have watched OT's like Jason Peters, Demetress Bell, and of course, the awesome Jonathan Scott leave for greener pastures in Pennsylvania instead. They need a big ol' tackle like Iowa's Riley Reiff.

    Amazingly, D Rock stole my O-Line stud DeCastro .... however it's too high for a guard to be drafted anyways *such lies* so I'm going for another position of need in the Memphis Nose Tackledontari-poe_display_image.jpg DONTARI POE ....thus leaving Luke Kuechly still readily an option for Steeler Nation!

    I know the Seahawks just signed Matt Flynn, but reports are that Pete Carroll is absolutely SMITTEN with Ryan Tannehill.
    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...ryan-tannehill

    It's not as if they signed Flynn to a massive, big money long-term deal either. It was a three-year, $19.5 million contract with $10 million guaranteed, including a $6 million signing bonus. His yearly base salaries will be $2 million in 2012, $5.25 million in 2013, and $6.25 million in 2014. That's manageable for a year or two while they bring Tannehill along slowly, since he only has about a year-and-a-half of experience as a starting QB in college.



    *Random Steeler-related Tannehill note...why was Tannehill playing WR instead of QB in 08-09 for Texas A&M? Because current Steeler QB Jerrod Johnson was their starting QB instead.*

    The Cardinals were interested in David DeCastro, Michael Floyd, and Riley Reiff here, and would now like to say that the 3 teams picking 8th, 9th, and 10th are big fat doodieheads!!! They considered going for a top notch pass-rushing OLB to play opposite Sam Acho (do you believe that Clark Freaking Haggans actually started all 16 games for Arizona last season?), but don't see great value here, since the best pass rusher on the board is Quinton Coples, and he is strictly a 4-3 DE, not a 3-4 OLB. Instead, they'll make a BPA pick. Normally, ILB's don't go so early in the draft since the league is morphing into a pass-centric game that devalues run stuffers...but Arizona plays in the NFC West, where they have to deal with large doses of Frank Gore, Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch, and SJax.

    Besides, Ken Whisenhunt just noticed that NottinghamForest_UK just posted that "Luke Kuechly still readily an option for Steeler Nation" so rather than waiting to take Kuechly away from the Steelers at a later date, they will steal Kuechly away from the Steelers now. Tackling Machine to the desert.

    While running a little behind, due to a last minute facelift procedure, Jerry Jones wipes the sweat of his new brow and screams out "How bout that new cowboy QUINTON COPLES"

    With the 16th pick in the draft, the Philadelphia Eagles shore up the middle of their defensive line with the consensus #1 DT, an incredible mix of size, strength, and speed. Weclome to Mississippi State's Fletcher Cox.

    images.jpgWith the 17th pick in the draft, The Bungles are faced with a choice between shoring up their corners, their receivers, or their o-line. Looking at the remaining players on the board, and knowing there are three first-round corners still on the board, two or three first round receivers still on the board, and 1 first round guard, along with two second round guards who will not make it to the 53rd pick, Cinicinatti selects Cordy Glenn, G/T, Georgia.

    *TRADE*

    Your Pittsburgh Steelers have moved up from #24 to #18!

    The Chargers will receive Pittsburgh's 3rd round pick.

    The numbers work out perfectly according to the trade value chart:

    1.18 = 900 pts.

    1.24 = 740 pts.
    3.86 = 160 pts.

    1.24 + 3.86 = 900 pts.
