Nice work. This looks pretty accurate to me as things stand. Interesting how far Manziel fell, but I could see it.

Nice work Saint. I like what you have for the most part. I am not sure if Cyril Richardson will fall that far, but it could happen.

Thanks for reading. I am sure the QBs' stock will be in flux until the night leading up to the draft in May. As much as I want to say they will all be top ten picks, I just feel that one of the them is going to fall out of the top ten (and possibly out of round one all together). It is hard to say. I just think that Minnesota should take one of them if they fall and there isn't a better player on the board when they pick (i.e. Sammy Watkins, Khalil Mack, Greg Robinson).

Looks like Johnny Manziel's stock is falling everywhere.

Ebron falling to the Patriots would give them a nasty TE duo again. I would be pretty happy with the board shaking out this way if I were the Vikings with Yankey, Shazier, and Van Noy all still available.

Fat chance Ebron falls that far, but i dont think its out of the question (Giants/Packers could give him a look). And the only reason I want the Vikings to go QB in round 1 is if Van Noy falls to them in the 2nd. Thanks for the feedback!

I'm still doing my own draft research (way behind this year other than at a few positions) so I can't offer anything terribly constructive but overall, the reasons you provided for your choices made sense to me. I kind of like the idea that Bridgewater would go from being a Louisville Cardinal to being an Arizona Cardinal.

Thank you for the feedback Jim. I appreciate it.


Honestly, I am not really sure how this draft is going to turn out. This has been one of the most difficult drafts to predict. It is harder than last year's draft. What makes it so unique is that there are so many first round QBs, but yet, none of them could be selected first overall. Throw in the fact that St. Louis will trade their second overall selection and you have one big cluster to predict.

Looks to be as good a guess as any I've seen. I agree that Clowney and Watkins SHOULD be the top 2 off the board. Mack at 3 is a solid take too.

Appreciate it Texas Vike.


I think Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley wants to mimic what he built in Seattle. That is why I think Khalil Mack could very well be their pick at number three. If Mack is off the board, I could see them maybe taking Sammy Watkins, but I would think they would target Blake Bortles if Mack is not available.

Both of your scenarios are realistic and that would leave Minnesota in an interesting spot of either occurred.

Given scenario two, I am not sure if New York would trade up for Lewan. The only other team that could potentially take Lewan would be Detriot, but I doubt they are ready to give up on Riley already. I think New York could safely wait it out for Lewan if they really wanted.

Right Tackle

As we highlighted earlier, Pears is currently the starter at right tackle but, with a decent sized cap hit, the team might feel they can do better by going elsewhere. Just our 55th highest graded offensive tackle last year, Pears struggled as a run blocker, where only Michael Oher and Bradley Sowell had a lower grade.
I think other teams could be looking at Buffalo taking a tackle if this situation occurred. There's going to be more value in a OT than there will be in a TE. I don't think the Bills would go TE at #9 when they have a need at tackle as well. If both Evans and Watkins are off the board, teams could be thinking Detroit needs a tackle as well and the Vikings would be a good spot for teams to move up to. The Giants desperately need O-Line help and I think for a 1st, 3rd and 6th the Vikings would be willing to make that call. The Vikings would then have 3-3rd round picks which would give them plenty ammunition to move back into the 1st round if someone like a Kyle Fuller fell towards the bottom of the first round
