He has Palmer's arm, but he has the touch, pocket presence, and decision making of Sanchez. He's not going to be very good.

I had to look up Tyrann Mathieu because I knew he was a big deal last year, going into the 2013 draft. I had no idea he had this drug problem. Hopefully he gets through it because he was fun to watch.

The Giants need to start getting some youth on the OL. Either that, or finally get a linebacker that is good.

The draft certainly sucks for the Chiefs though. They need a franchise QB and the guys at the top have some glaring flaws.

I don't really think he was going to be a high pick.

Yeah Mathieu was going to be a low 1st and high 2nd due to be relegated to being a safety in the NFL.

On the safety note, I really like Jefferson as the best FS.

Any guesses if Scott Crichton comes out this year if he can keep up his play? 8 sacks this year as a redshirt Sophomore.

Mathieu is high risk/high reward player on the field..he will make plays but also give up plays...great returner though.

I'd be surprised if Jake Matthews declared this year.

Vikings need a few things outside of wide receiver (and I wouldn't be surprised if they forgo a wide receiver). Linebacker (none of our guys in the middle are 3 down players or leaders). Safety (Smith is awesome but...??)...

What do people think of Alex McCarron? He's not heralded, but I think he deserves to be drafted and get in a camp.

Gut feeling says the Bears and Ravens are going to fight each other for Alec Ogletree, to replace their aging MLBs. God I hope the Bears can get him. Ogletree is a monster.

At this rate I think Bears have to go tackle again

Webb just is not viable at LT spot and Carimi is struggling (Though this is really his first year given injury so that isn't totally unexpected)

Defensive minded team. I go ILB and replace Urlacher, and get a tackle in the 2nd round.

Way better, but the Vikings are too good to get him.

Boyd would be a good 2nd or 3rd round pick. Bills need a QB and have refused to take one in the first round for years. Connect the dots...makes sense.

I do, too. It's just the history of USC quarterbacks, combined with all the hype that makes his season look horrible and also cause his draft stock (at least among fans and "experts") to plunge.

Yes but he's still a huge question mark. Vikings already gambled (and IMO lost) with the Ponder pick. They can't gamble another 1st round pick that will probably be in the 10-20 range away.

It's unlikely that Te'o will still be there when they pick. I'd be fine with a DT/NT, CB, or WR.

Its pretty clear that Urlacher doesn't have much left due to the knee

Bears have to draft a replacement this year in draft

Horrible off-season to need a QB.

Draft isn't strong and looks to be a weak FA market. Reaching on Ponder is going to hurt us for quite some time. Two seasons lost already, might not be until 2014 that we shore up the position. What a waste of Peterson's prime.

Vikes should bring in competition for Ponder. Smith is the best guy to likely be available... but that also means he could end up grossly overpaid as there are a few teams looking for help (Cards, Bills, Browns, Jets, Jags, Chiefs, Eagles and Rams could all potentially be in the market).

Ideally (and what the Vikes should have done in the 1st place), Vikes look at the draft as a talent grab... regardless of position. If a QB falls to them, great. If not, maybe look for one in the 3rd or later and hope to get lucky (ala Seattle). If we come out of the draft without a QB, then roll the dice on FA.

What they need to stop doing is going for quick-wins, sack-up and rebuild.

Right now the Eagles would be drafting 4th, thankfully some of the teams around them won today. They are projected to most likely between 4th-6th. Looks like the top pick is between KC, JAX, and Oakland. With the Raiders having the weakest SOS of them all.
