I like your picks for the Rams. I doubt that will be how it plays out but I'd be ecstatic if that is how things go.

No way the Hawks take a corner in the 1st. Just payed Earl Thomas top dollar, and almost guaranteed to do the same for Sherm.

I'm scared the Rams might draft Johnny. There was crazy hype here after his workout for them.

Edit: happy with the Robinson pick.

I don't like that Johnny has fallen this far. I think the Rams might take him at 13. I would prefer Ha-Ha Dix. Then take a QB with their second round pick.

Whew...that was close. I like the Rams first round.

I was going to stop watching after pick 13 but now I wanna see where Johnny goes.

If he can learn how to be a QB again that would be great. He got into so many bad habits the past two years that were non-existent earlier in his career. No idea why.

I thought the same thing. I figured he'd be a first round pick, but not a top 10.

The Browns trading down to 9 then back up one pick had me scratching my head...then another trade later...And they got Johnny...

Honestly, I don't think Johnny will succeed but what happened last night could be the only reason he might. If he had gone as early as some expected I think he would have been a bust. But the Aaron Rodgers like plummet to the 20s might just be the chip on the shoulder he needs to become successful.

I read in the paper today that the Rams had a trade already worked out to get 17 from Baltimore but the Cowboys took their guy (Zach Martin) at 16. So the trade got canceled. That would have given the Rams 3 first rounders (2 OL and a DL). No details on what the parameters of the trade were but Fisher said it "would have been expensive" but "worth it".

I'm pretty happy with Buffalo's draft picks thus far. As much as I liked Stevie Smith, I'm glad to see him go and to see the Bills focusing on fresh blood in the receiver corps. I can think of a few guys who will step up to Buffalo's number one spot without too much difficulty in the transition.

A couple of good hits from pro linebackers/linemen should make him humble down a lot. Try being a cocky asshole while picking turf out of your face mask all game.

So if it wasn't for Russel Wilson's mega success as a young/short/athletic QB, would Manziel even be on the radar right now? Let alone a 1st rounder?

Hmmm...I think the Johnny football hype train started before Wilson really blew up. So the question is, would that have had as a big an impact on NFL personnel offices?

I think he still would have been at least a 2nd or 3rd rounder. The only reason I think he dropped so low in the 1st was his behavior/maturity.

Personally I don't think he is a 1st round talent. But I watched him get totally shut down by Mizzou's defense (which, to be fair is good...it had at least 4 players taken in the draft this year).

He is a tweener. To small to be much other then a pass rush specialist as a 4-3 DE and not athletic enough to play OLB on a 3-4.

The Rams are a good fit because they can utilize him for special teams and as a fill in on pass rush downs to give Quinn and Long breathers. Also, he is already pretty popular in St. Louis because of his success at Mizzou so his sexuality shouldn't cause any problems for the team or him personally. He is already accepted here for who he is.

It's actually pretty surprising how popular he is in Missouri. I mean, KC and STL are decently liberal but the rest of the state is hardcore Bible Belt.

"This guy eats people"

"Good, that's what we want out of a D Lineman. Eat up those blockers."

"No. I literally mean that this guy eats people. He is a cannibal."

"Oh...Well, let's try to keep that quiet...I really like this guys numbers."

Someone usually tries to start an XBA league. I might join this season.
