    I don't want a WR in the first round at all. And I hope we could trade down in this scenario. I just have a feeling because I don't want a 1st round WR, he's gonna be the BPA on the board.
    It is also the Offensive's turn at the first rounder this year. Alternated every year.

    In the first 15 picks, I think you can say with almost certainty that 5 of them will not be taking a QB in round one: Pittsburgh, Chicago, Detroit, NY Giants, Atlanta. That means that 6 out of the remaining 10 take a QB? Maybe Dallas moves up from 16 (if the rumors are true). I'd give this "Dumb & Dumber odds": the chance is 1 in a million. So you're saying I have a chance...

    After hearing Charlie Casserly today, I'm not so sure Manziel gets picked in the 1st round. He has dirt on him that he refused to discuss publicly.

    Russel Wilson is the reason teams are going to pick a QB early? That makes no damn sense Flippy. If anything teams will follow the Wilson model and draft everything BUT a QB until the 2nd and 3rd day.

    We used to draft our OLBs later in the draft. Now these pass rushers are premium picks and everyone wants the same guys we'd usually be able to get later.

    Wilson was arguably the most talented QB in his draft class if he was 6'5". I think teams will start looking at talent different and pull the trigger earlier on the QBs around 6'.

    Agree with Evans being the Steelers top target and Dennard being a quality consolation prize, but disagree about Benjamin, even after a trade down. Benjamin has the measurables you look for, but something intangible just seems to be missing in my mind. I foresee disappointment with him like with Mike Williams (the one drafted by Detroit, not Tampa) or Dwayne Jarrett. I'd rather another smurf receiver than Benjamin.
