You still have Gilmore in the 1st Round? I would prolly go with Dennard or Jenkins for the Bengals.

I like most of the picks overall, some unique ones like Upshaw to NE. I like the versatility he provides for that scheme, thoughts on NE going back to 3-4 with Mayo, Spikes, Wilfork struggling this year?

Good KC pick

Good KC pick

At heart, Belichick is more of a 3-4 guy than a 4-3 guy, so I think if he were able to find some guys who he thought would allow him to transition back to a 3-4 base successfully, that would be appealing. Upshaw is coached by Nick Saban and has the prerequisite bulk to anchor vs. the run, so I think he'd be a possibility there. Usually I have him coming off the board a little bit sooner but if he were left that would be a strong pick in my opinion.

I love the eagles pick.

I would prefer Kuechly, but in the end i think burfict and Te'o will test much better leading to getting picked higher.

I can dig the 9ers pick.might need a wr also .

LG is not that BAD enough to warrant a 1st round replacement. Maybe a 4th or 5th round G to compete with Slauson and be the Moore replacement of the future, sure I am fine with that.

Floyd needs to be the Jets pick there. If not him, then a RT or OLB.

24. Washington Redskins - DT Jared Crick, Nebraska

Interesting selection with the early success from coefield, carriker, and bowen this year as well as a really impressive preseason from jarvis jenkins before he was injured. Nield is playing well also. I could see adding some more depth but with those 5 already guys being the primary contributors next year, I'd personally rather add depth later in the draft. We really need interior olineman who can make an immediate impact.

The Browns do not at all need a defensive tackle. They just gave Ahtyba Rubin a 3-year $27 million extension, and he is the Cleveland's second best defensive player.

I think NE are going to re-sign Welker. Give us Sanu instead of Broyles and I think it's a good draft. Not particularly a fan of Upshaw, but we need pass rush. If that means drafting Upshaw so be it.

Great Colts pick, though it's pretty obvious. What do you think a team would have to give up to trade up to #1?

Also, what are your thoughts about Alameda Ta'amu playing in a 4-3? Do you think he is 3-4 NT only?

Dream situation for the Vikings.

Good Bears pick
