    There are some decent calls in there. I'm not sure I see Jarvis Jones getting all the way up to #2 overall, not least of which because the Under Armor portion of this process won't be all that kind to him.

    Buddy Nix just declared pretty strongly he's going for a QB. I hate to fall into this trap because Buddy is great at lying about the Draft but at this point he might be telling the truth just because he needs to, the fans need to know it or else they risk losing them. Until we get more clarity I'd just assume have Matt Barkley going wherever the Bills are currently slated to pick. In the end you're better off matching the team and player.

    Would love it if the Patriots took Amerson with their first pick.

    I think Keke Mingo would mostly be viewed as a pass rush specialist a la Bruce Irvin in Seattle.

    You really have to admire the Seahawks' thinking outside the box with respect to Bruce Irvin in the 1st round. Had the potential to be disastrous from an attitude standpoint, and I don't know if he'll EVER be a full time player because of his frame and lack of stamina, but the dude has 10 sacks, 10 hits on QB, and 18 pressures on 294 pass rush opportunities. They stick him in the game on passing downs and he's a player you actually have to fear. He was one of the few that you could actually say that about in this NFL Draft. I remember doing a podcast show where they asked if you had one down where you absolutely needed a pass rush to prevent losing a game, who would you take. The answer for me and for everyone else was easy, Bruce Irvin. But all the extraneous stuff like attitude, arrest history, stamina...scared a lot of us off the idea of him in the 1st round. Not the Seahawks though, and they're reaping the benefits. Fortune favors the bold.

    once he destroys the combine mingos name is gonna be in top 5 consideration...god dang i'd be overjoyed to some how have that guy fall in our laps...

    dion jordan to the jets if it's not gonna be a qb makes a lot of sense to me...a 34 olb with elite burst and explosion best suited to play in a 2 point stance..just raw as heck pass rush wise
