2011 NFL Draft thread.....

Figured we should start one since the draft is less than two hours away.

I've been hearing rumors that both the Broncos and the Bills are interested in Von Miller. As a Cards fan, that makes me sad. If he's off the board when the Cards pick, I hope they trade down.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft thread.....

This is a joke that they still aren't allowing to trade players for picks. And the NFL supposedly told the teams that no 'side deals' are allowed when the trade ban is lifted.

A team like the Eagles have Kevin Kolb sitting there, who many teams covet, and can't trade him tonight, but are allowed to trade picks?

I hope Dictator Roger gets booed everytime he walks up to the podium tonight for what has gone on this offseason.

Cold beer on hand. Ready to see how this unfolds. The no trade thing really puts a crimp in things though.

I hope it doesn't completely tank the draft.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft thread.....

Yes, the entire we can't trade picks for current players is stupid. The team that wants to acquire player x and the team doing the trading both get screwed.

Anyway, apparently there is a very good chance the QB Blaine Gabbert will drop to #8. If he is there, I think the Titans have to take him. I'd be ok with the move. I'd prefer to do the BPA at #8 and QB in Round 2 but this works as well since I'm anticpating a run on qbs late in Round 1. There has to be a DL that falls to #39 if that scenario happens.

Anyway, I'll be out and have to tape the Draft. The only advantage here is that I get to FF through the teams I don't like or care about. Man, I prefer the "old" days when they had the first 3 rounds on Saturday and I could just be a couch potato and watch 5-6 hours of this stuff.

Hope you all fun watching the draft and boo that GODdell for me

Re: 2011 NFL Draft thread.....

why can't they trade for "a player to be named later", yet both teams know full well who that player will ultimately be?

Damnit, there's a rumor that Atlanta and Cleveland have a deal worked out for the Falcons to trade up, apparently for Julio Jones if he's there. I was really hoping he'd fall to the Rams, or at least to #9 so they could trade up with Dallas. We'll see.

I think there's a good chance he'll be a holdout too, if there's no rookie wage scale.

His kind of playing just doesn't go over too well in the NFL, those secondary's are just too fast. Other than Vick who seems to be the exception and not the rule. I only saw a few games but I've seen a lot of clips and he's usually running down field, unless you're playing Dallas, that doesn't really work.

Does NFL Network ruin all the suspense by showing everyone on the phone before the pick?

Yes. I watched Von Miller cry into the phone for a solid two minutes.
