What rumors panned out before the draft, and which didnt?

I remember the rumor of Reggie Nelson falling to the 2nd round. That was obviously false.

A true rumor was Alan Branch falling.

What other rumors can people think of that were false/true?

A team trading up to get CJ was a big rumor that didn't happen.

That was probably the ultimate one. I remember when it didn't happen, John Clayton kept predicting the Lions would trade him with TB, then Atlanta, and then he finally gave up.

I guess you could also include all the threads started by bushwacker or whatever his name was about Brady Quinn to the Raiders.

the redskins taking either anderson or okoye pretty much until a week before the draft, and then everyone switched to landry...they shoulda taken the DLineman.

I think it was Todd McShay who first reported that Miami was interested in Ted Ginn, and were possibly going to take him with their first round pick.

There were rumors that a lot of teams had low grades on Brady Quinn. Those were true, and several teams had other Quarterbacks other than Russell ahead of him.

A rumor that was flat out untrue was Don Banks' "reporting" that Arthur Blank ordered Rich McKay to trade up for Calvin Johnson.

There have been interesting post-Draft reveals, made by Adam Schefter and others. Off the top of my head that I can recall:

Teddy Ginn would have been taken at #10 by the Houston Texans had he not been taken at #9 by the Miami Dolphins.

Darrelle Revis would have been taken at #15 by the Pittsburgh Steelers had he not been taken at #14 by the New York Jets, in a trade up for him.

Marshawn Lynch would have been taken at #16 by the Green Bay Packers had he not been taken at #12 by the Buffalo Bills.

Justin Harrell would have been taken by the Denver Broncos had he not been taken at #16 by the Green Bay Packers.

Or, I think the Jaguars would've tried to trade up for him. If the deal was convincing enough, Pittsburgh might've bit.

A popular one that was going around Panther sites and local media was that we were looking to package Kris Jenkins and the #14 to move up to take LaRon Landry.

Kubiak is such a poor man's Shanahan, it's hilarious.

They should thank the Dolphins though for helping/"forcing" them to draft Amobi Okoye. He might not show it his rookie year as he transitions to the pros, but I think the guy is a playmaker waiting to eventually happen and should help the interior of their defensive line, against the run and the pass, for the better.

I'm sure teams did have talks with them to move up there, but a deal just didn't pan out.

That St Louis was going to give us their second for jenkins was true, we just rejected it.

Seen that and that they offered us a 2nd and a day 2 pick but we were holding out for a first rounder.

There was that strong rumor flying around just before the draft that the Broncos were going to trade with the Texans for the #10 pick in order to nab Patrick Willis. Scott even had it in one of his final mocks, but it never panned out.

False, We were taking Timmons all the way, Tomlin had no reason to take another CB.

Marshawn Lynch would have been taken at #16 by the Green Bay Packers had he not been taken at #12 by the Buffalo Bills.

Justin Harrell would have been taken by the Denver Broncos had he not been taken at #16 by the Green Bay Packers.

Denver Bronco's wanted Timmons then Harrell then Moss.

I realy doubt the Steelers would have went after Revis. They got the guy that had been our main target all along in Timmons.

I'll take Tomlins. He said Timmons was one of the highest players on our board and he was looked at as a guy that would be a likely pick. If you can remember the Steelers were the only team to send their HC to go see Timmons pro day.

Yea I have a feeling the head coach doesn't want to talk down the guy he just took in the first round. I heard from a few places that Revis was as good as gone if he was at 15.
