First thoughts – how stupid is Cleveland to cut Barnidge because they drafted a round 1 TE? Has Cleveland missed the whole 2 tight end set that has been in vogue and successful for the last half decade? The Jets showing that type of team is common in the bottom feeder world – they got Jamal Adams a super star Safety so they are getting rid of Calvin Pryor who was over matched in the QB Safety role but might have shone as a #2 under Adams but nope the Jets think you only need 1 safety. Reasons why teams like Cleveland the Jets just lose and lose and draft high and draft high.
Green Bay takes Kevin King CB and he will help a Pack secondary that has had issues *happily to a BEARS Fan* for the last few years. This will make them better.
Seattle trades to Jacksonville and Jags take Cam Robinson T. O line from college are very hard to see how they clearly transition to the pro game so it may take Robinson a while to get NFL ready but he will be a good one.
Seattle – Malik McDowell DT – another Seahawk D project not unlike the one they drafted a couple of years back. Frank Clark thanks Charles Davis Typical Hawk pick.
Chicago traded another pick because they are allergic to taking top talent and when they use a top pick they pick stupidly. Arizona has the pick and takes Budda Baker S when they mighta taken a QB but they got another good addition to what already is a great secondary.
Buffalo trades in to take Zay Jones WR – a bit of a reach for Buffalo but they must like how he fits into their receiving corps.
The LA Bolts take Forrest Lamp G The best interior lineman is now a Bolt protector. He will help keep Rivers upright while the QB cashes AARP checks. Good pick.
New York Jets take Marcus May S because as long as the sun rises in the East the Jets need help in their secondary. Question is which Safety will they trade or cut now because the Jets don’t like depth.
Carolina picks Curtis Samuel RB/WR and he will add depth to the receiver corps which lacks it.
Minnesota Vikings trade up and take Dalvin Cook RB – thank the good Lord they didn’t take the woman beating scum and they took a guy with super talent who hangs with bad dudes but maybe the cold air will keep him on the straight and narrow. Superb pick if they can babysit him in off hours.
New Orleans Saints take Marcus Williams S to work to give the woeful Saint D someone who can do something to stop the opposition from scoring.
Philadelphia Eagles pick Sidney Jones CB and he woulda been a top 20 but for a torn acl thingy and he will be back and he will be potentially a shutdown corner once healthy.
Rams are taking Gerald Everett TE and they lost a few receivers and never really have had any since Warner was their QB so this guy can catch some.
CHICAGO BEARS are actually picking someone – they take Adam Shaheen TE – nice St Jude moment there and a brave little BEARS Fan read the pick. Chicago has been lacking a great TE since they traded Olsen and if Shaheen can transition from small school to NFL then this big beast could be a good pick.
…now only comments on picks that illicit commentary from me….
Cincinnati Bengals took Joe Mixon RB and girl abuser, numerous times, violently argumentative with parking attendants. The entire State of Ohio and Michigan and Iowa and perhaps Indiana needs to start protesting at their mini camps and pre-season and regular season. Playing in the NFL is a privilege and not a right and this thug has given up the rights to the privilege and doesn’t deserve the chance. A pick that will resonate on the Bengal organization. Congrats you took a thug who can play. Guess if Aaron Hernandez was alive they might have traded for him.
The Skins took a good Bama LB and that will help that team, various lesser light d players are going off the board.
Cleveland finally drafts a QB and they take DeShone Kizer and he will need to grow and perhaps he can learn behind Kessler for a while and then they will potentially have a franchise QB in Cleveland for the first time in a VERY long time.
Lions grab Teez Tabor and he will add some talent to their D. The Lions get better now.
OakVegas took Obi the unpronounceable CB and he is tall and will give them a jolt and help that secondary that had issues get better
The Texans added LB Cunningham who slid because he doesn’t sack the QB but a solid LB who can just tackle and cover will fit in very well in Houston. He’s Vandy too.
Pittsburgh Steelers drafted a WR named Ju Ju and he will give them a solid 2 to play opposite AB and this will make the Steeler O even more dangerous. Great pick
Nice inciting of potential riots in Philly by Cowboy Drew Pearson
2nd round ends with Panthers taking a Tackle and they can use depth on that Panther line
The Saints take Alvin Kamara a first-round RB and that is a talent steel. The Saints are filling the team with RBs and me thinks if Kamara is who Mike Mayock says he is * I do believe what Mike says* then AP may not want to take a long-term lease in New Orleans because there may not be much work for an over the hill fading child beater with someone like Kamara and Ingram there.
Rams take WR Cooper Kupp and I feel like I know him having had him on NFLN every fricking week. He is a decent WR and will be a decent WR in LA with Goff if Goff can ever become an NFL QB.
Vikings took C/G Pat Elflein and he may not be all that but last year they were pulling people off the street to play O line so any help is good help. A good pick.
Cincy at 73 grabs DE Jordan Willis and he coulda been a first-round pick and he may not fully fit in as he is not a scumbag but he can play.
The Saints took Anzalone the LB and he woulda been higher picked if he didn’t have health issues. Good potential if healthy.
Denver takes a fast if fragile WR Carlos Henderson, he can be quick but can he be consistent.
New England Patriots finally make a pick at #83. One wondered if they would EVER pick but they do and they pick Derek Rivers DE a small school guy who can sack the QB and The Patriot Way will make him the most dangerous and this will make the Pats better of course.
Pats 2nd pick in 3 is Antonio Garcia T This kid could one day be a LT, he is a beast and will be a super addition to a line that needs help. This guy could be Solder’s replacement according to Mike Mayock the Draft God.
Chiefs take Kareem Hunt RB and if he brings all he did in college then there is another changing of the guard at RB in KC coming quick.
The Giants took QB Davis Webb and this guy is the perfect Eli backup as Eli is long in the tooth and Webb needs an Aaron Rodgers grooming period then he will take over. Superb pick for the G men.
Texans took good guy D’Onte Foreman who will be a big body RB who gets the short yardage and goal line job and keeps Lamar Miller healthy. Great spot for a good guy.
A lot of secondary additions late in the 3rd round a couple of team added big O line and D line.
Niners added a kid QB late C.J. Beathard who I guess they are hoping for a Dak Prescott like turn from.
An interesting if poorly run 2nd night of draft and it took a lot out of me for this so you are all pretty much on your own for the 4th to 7th rounds. Enjoy the rest of the draft and remember people like Brady and Sherman came in the late rounds so don’t sleep on the talent that comes late!
