jonathon Hankins? Give us a pass rusher or Cb. We have enough run-stuffers next to McCoy.

Give the Chiefs Geno Smith or Tyler Wilson. Matt Barkley is just not good.

Jordan is still a really nice pick for Baltimore. Kruger has been playing much better recently but they still don't have that explosiveness you would like at the position. I think even Pees (if he's still around) could find ways to get Suggs. Upshaw, Jordan, and Kruger on the field at the same time. If Kruger isn't brought back after this season that makes this pick even better.

18. Dallas Cowboys - FS Eric Reid, Louisiana St.*


:yes: I think ideally I want Matthews to fall to Dallas but I love some of the 2nd/3rd round RTs as well so nabbing the top rated FS (whether it be Vaccaro or Reid) makes the most sense.

Good stuff.

Odd pick for Carolina. Top 10 LB two years in a row. Understand the injury concerns with Beason and Davis, and obviously any team would be lucky to get Te'o, but just feel like that's an unlikely landing spot.

Meh pick for the Vikings. Not saying it won't happen, and it certainly would help fill a need, but at this point I am just holding out hope we get a WR who can make a difference on the outside.

I'm not sure if we'll see many wide receivers drafted early, mostly because of the depth of this class. There seem to be interesting receiver prospects through the first three rounds or so.

You can't go wrong with Star, he's such a massive player that would give us a impact player that can play multiple positions. I still think a pass rusher is the top need though so Jones, Moore or Werner should be in consideration.

The idea of Te'o and Kuechly playing side by side is interesting to say the least. There is next to no chance of it happening unless star, Hankins, Joeckel, Millner, Jones and Moore were all gone and he is still on the board. Then I could see it because of the Beason injury concern, Anderson could be gone, he would be BPA and Jerry loves taking high character guys. Who knows nobody thought we'd take Kuechly last year.

Montgomery works for the Bengals.

Lewan makes about as much sense as anybody for the Jets at this point. They're a fairly tough team to pin down at this point since there's so much instability right now, but I'm sure things will become more clear this offseason.

I considered Hankins and Milliner. Do you think Carolina would consider cutting Jordan Gross to make room for Joeckel, or what? Also, I thought Greg Hardy was playing well opposite Damontre Moore?

Solid Player but I'd be sick if we felt we had to take a top CB 3 years in a row...

Jets won't draft a tackle in the 1st. Dbrickshaw is locked in at LT and Austin Howard is showing promise at Rt and while we certainly replaceable, we currently have no guards for next year so if we went OL it'd be guard, so warmack or cooper I guess, but would like to see OLB and RB addressed first

Oh man, I love it for the Rams.

How would you compare Manti Te'o to Luke Kuechly last year?

Unlikely is polite.

Kuechly is a much better player. Why would we draft another MLB?

Love Warmack as a player, but if we took an OG over a playmaking receiver like Allen or a top LB like Mosley, I'd be beside myself!

I suppose Sam Montgomery is a possibility at that spot. I don't think Eddie Lacy would be the ideal guy that high in the round though.

Oh man, I love it for the Rams.

I have Te'o ranked as a better prospect, and I'm a fan of all the Boston area teams incl. Boston College. He plays with more power than Kuechly.

Mosley is an interesting idea. I also considered Allen, but I think the WR depth may push them in a different direction. I think Greg Jennings is a possibility as well.

Yea but I would think they could possibly settle on Moore if everyone else was taken. They kick Hardy inside on certain plays. Idk though I mean I'm not high on Hankins and I think after Joeckel every other OT is a reach in the top 10. Who knows I mean Anderson could very well be a cap casualty. Beason hasn't been healthy for 2 years but he's probably safe for this year. Davis has proved this year he can stay healthy but there's always the risk. All I'm saying is the likelihood of them drafting Te'o isn't 0 but it would take the right players being drafted before them and certain roster moves to make the need for him look reasonable.

I haven't seen Hankins play much at all but from the little I've read on him he will be coveted by the teams that run a 34. Do you have any NFL comparisons for Hankins? Would you say he's a low risk to bust?

I actually think Kuechly was a bit better. But we'll agree to disagree. Not taking anything away from Manti, plus I'm sure you've seen more of him than I have.

Cooper would be a nice pick and a good fit for us. Where do you see Louis Nix III going if he declares? I'd love to see him in NE...
