I'm sure I'm not the only guy who loves football on here, but I might be the only nerd watching every minute of the draft. :laugh:

My Chiefs picked up three good players that should contribute immediately. How did your team do so far?

The Panthers didn't have a first rounder (again! :angry:), but we picked up Jimmy Clausen in the second. My mind's not quite made up on him yet. John Fox and Charlie Weis are good friends, so I'm sure there was a little extra insight there.

I'm not sold on him either, Jonesy. I think I like McCoy better.

My Giants have picked at every D position except the one need they have. There's a gaping hole at LB that needed to be filled.

Don't worry jayro75 your team wasn't the only one not picking players for the position they need. The Bills haven't had a QB since Jim Kelly retired... I have a love hate relationship with the Bills.

I didn't follow it at all, but am confused as to why Denver picked up Tebow after just trading for Brady Quinn and announcing Orton was the starting QB. ???

I'm sure it makes sense to someone, though. Looking forward to the season starting, either way. :)

Without a pass rush Jay, our DBs will be exploited all game long....like all of last year, we hardly had any pressure on the opposing QB so they picked our weak secondary apart. Those first two DL picks are sure to play in the rotation on the D-line this year for sure...let's hope they measure up.

We did pickup that kid Chad Jones (Jonesy's relative?)...the #1 rated strong safety in the draft. Problem is, why did he go so late? He had a HORRIBLE combine...but what's the deal with this kid really?

You're right about linebackers though. Trade? Free Agent? We did pickup the kid from Nebraska, Phillip Dillard in the 4th round...another project!!! One good year and gets injured easily...oye!

Philly is having a hell of a draft!...F*CK!

That kid C.J. Spiller is a freak...go to YouTube and look at some of his highlights! The problem is, does Buffalo have any blocking for him? The saving grace is, he may not need much to spring him loose!

Just hope he makes it 2-3-4 years before he breaks down from getting hammered by 350lb linemen!...he's not a big guy...ex: Clinton Portis, Brian Westbrook, etc...

My Steelers picked up some much needed help on the O line and a receiver. Not sure he's going to fill Santonio's shoes on the field. Hopefully he'll conduct himself with more maturity off of it.

I am excited about him don't get me wrong. But, we have Trent Edwards as a QB! Look at his stats last year, he threw more interceptions then touchdowns! He is a bum! My family has had season tickets since 1995 (yeah I know four straight Super Bowls.) Not to mention we haven't made it to the playoffs since 1999! The Bills need to do some serious reevaluating! We finally have a new coaching staff. But, we all know that some how some way the Bills are going to get me pumped about their chances this year and then blow it like always!

ESPN online for the NFL draft really sucks for the casual fan...if you're not an INSIDER ($39.95 per yr), they show you no valued content....another money grab!

I've been an INSIDER since it started, but that is just wrong. INSIDER membership started at $9.95 a year when it first started out. As time goes by, they tag more & more content to the "INSIDER" subscribers.

CBS Sportsline is still the same....track it there for live picks, updates and comments about each player picked.

ESPN TV is getting more and more like Entertainment Tonight and their online experience is turning into "Pay-per-view".

Rant off...

I've watched every second of it too Mike, don't worry. How can you not love Suh? I like Best too, but am not sure he's worth what they gave up for him, and they have more pressing needs that a RB. Spievey was a steal at a huge need for them. Like the OT they took from Miami and don't know much about the DE they took.

Do like I do Gary. I haven't paid more than $4 a year for insider/ESPN the Mag for over 3 years now. There's always a deal for Insider on slickdeals for $4 a year. I cancel after 11 months before they renew me for full price and then re-up through slickdeals about a week later.

I hear ya Brian, that's pretty much what I do. But the thing that irked me was I was talking to a few friends during the draft and I told them to go on ESPN to get more in-depth stats on the players....they were the ones that told me most of what I was talking about was tagged to being an INSIDER....plus, I'm really creating a major attitude about ESPN in general...ever since they camped out at TO's house the day he OD'd on aspirin! Even SportsCenter is starting to piss me off.... :laugh:

Your Panthers had a ton of picks considering they had no first rounder. Clausen will be a gamer and a leader on the field, way better than Tebow will ever be...in fact, their first 3 picks were pretty good....the next seven...I dunno what to say! ???

The Giants #1 is a little suspect...a 3rd and long pass rusher at best. :rolleyes:

I'm still waiting to see if they trade Osi to the Panthers...

John, I think a lot of us are confused by it. I understand McDaniels' "whole person" concept in the way he's trying to rebuild the Broncos, but he hasn't given everyone a warm fuzzy that he knows what he's doing. He comes off as an arrogant, wet-behind-the-ears punk. I guess time will tell. I'm excited by the Tebow prospect-- I hope he works out.

In the meantime, has Brandon Marshall been arrested in Miami yet?

three letters.....

SUH

Never been a fan of Detroit, but I’m going to start watching.

My two teams have always been the Titans and the Redskins. Redskins had a decent draft, I hope they can win some games this year with their other trades so far. Titans, ehh nothing special in my opinion - they got a stellar line and running back, now they just a need a consistent QB. Their Defense isn’t as good as a few years back, but they are still competitive.

You can count on my bet every year, no matter the record, Melly. You know that! :)
