What are spoilers? I'm assuming that it's don't post right away in case someone is behind. How do we know we're safe to post?

Keep hearing talk of Stingley in the top 5 and Gardner possibly falling to 7 or 9. If Gardner did fall that far what’s everyone’s opinion on trading up to get him? Definitely put a stamp on the new management and signal the end of old ways, I like it!

Hard pass on both. I don't think either one is a difference maker, of which there are almost none at the CB position in the NFL today.

Sorry, don't mean to be difficult, but I'm really not understanding. How would someone be able to leak it before it's announced?

They are often posted/tweeted online before they are officially announced on TV

I would be upset if Vikings traded up, Vikings have too many holes to fill so they need their draft picks

I'm not usually a fan of trading up in a draft because IMO somebody great almost always falls to the pick we already have. We just need to figure out who that great player is. :D

I'm getting conflicting reports about Jameson Williams. I've heard he might not play at all this year to he's going to play midseason, to he'll be available for game one. What to believe?

Charles Davis was raving about Stingley yesterday. Talking about how he never complained and yet still played the season thru a Lys-Franc injury. That is tough as nails. BUT, as Tannenbaum said, he is constantly hurt for whatever the reason.
I want a player that WILL BE a game changer, not a player I HOPE will be !!

I could see him going to Eagles just in case Reagor does not work out
