    Good grief, my new shiny object to pass time... Defense, a guy named Max , and two human highlight reels on offense. Have a hard time reconciling that Johnnie Football drops to 40. Jimmy G more likely.

    Wow, so much the opposite of my last one! This might be my favorite so far!? Hard to beat landing major upgrades at two of our biggest needs, LB & LG, a big Corner who will push for playing time immediately and improve STs, and the luxury of a versatile threat of a backup RB while still adding some developmental potential at QB...twice!!

    BUFFALO
    40 G DAVID YANKEY
    STANFORD
    72 CB STANLEY JEAN- BAPTISTE

    96 QB JIMMY GAROPPOLO

    104 RB CHARLES SIMS
    WVU
    136 QB BRETT SMITH
    WYOMING

    I think Mack has a real good chance of being a long term, every down, immediate difference making LBer and a candidate for Defensive ROY. Yankey gives us long term potential and stability along our OL...moving Charlie to multi-Backup, where he's a better fit due to his experience at OT and OG. With all of the big body WRs in our division, SJP might take the Captain's spot starting opposite Rhodes sooner than later. Add Joseph, our BIG upgrade at NT, to that and suddenly all of our weaknesses look like strengths!?!

    Except, of course, QB, where Garoppolo and Smith are far from the shiniest turds in the pasture...But, none of the QBs coming out this year look near to the sure-fire, long term potential of Luck. All these guys have strengths but they all have weaknesses they need to work on too. Our team has shown the ability to win with below average QB play, because we have Peterson at RB and usually, pretty solid play out of our D and STs...

    Would it really be so bad to start Cassel for a year and a half or so and see which of these two guys steps up?!??!???

    Also, it sounds like nest year's QB crop is much better, we can always revisit the well then.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    For sure…that was when I chose the Ultimate Scouting Big Board for the simulator. It consistently comes out with funky drafts. I choose either Fanspeak or Walter Football for my mocks now.

    This draft could go in directions no one expected right out the chute... what if all the top teams go defense? WRs? Or maybe like last year, and go OTs?

    The top players that COULD go 1-8 are:
    DEF:
    Clowney
    Mack
    Barr

    OTs:
    Matthews
    Robinson
    Lewan

    WRs:
    Watkins
    Evans

    QBs:
    Bridgewater
    Manziel
    Bortles
    Carr

    That is 12 players that could go in front of us, and no one would be "extremely" surprised, except maybe Carr (I keep seeing people say he might surprise people, so I included him).

    The one thing I DO know is this draft will be a roller coaster of a ride.

    You could probably add the top two Cornerbacks to that list, and maybe one of the top safeties, and we might be looking at most of the guys that go in the first half of the draft. And then, I also find it odd that most mocks don't have any DTs going early either...the need is there, and once again, the big boys who can move fast are rare physical specimens, and that fact usually pushes them up the real, team boards.

    Of that list, I am really starting to believe that it is the QBs who will not go in the top ten...every one of them has question marks, and despite the pundits wanting a bunch of us to reach for QB last year, only 1 went in the first, and in the middle of the first, EJ Manuel. There are also higher regarded players available that fit other needs...teams picking in the top ten are very likely to need a QB, but they are also very likely to have way more than one need.
