    Featured Threads:
    1- CHIEFS- WR Herve Ballard, 6'6", 238 lbs, Texas
    ---All along the Chiefs have been steadfast in their decision to take a WR with the 1st round pick. Ballard is the consensus #1 WR from the scouting combine. If Calvin Johnson is Megatron, this guy is Optimus Prime. 6'6", 238lbs and ran a sub 4.40 time at Texas pro day. Look for Ballard to instantly become one of the top flight WR's in the league.

    2- VIKINGS- DE Hansen Grove, 6'1", 252 lbs
    ---The Vikings do have a nice roster on paper without many holes you would think. They do need a RB but many scouts feel there's not a top flight RB to be had @ #2 for Minnesota to take over the duties left behind by Adrian Peterson. They could go DE here in Grove, who by all accounts is the best speed rusher in the draft.

    3- BENGALS (from DOLPHINS)- WR Bryant Keith, 6'4", 235 lbs, Texas
    ---What a big time deal the Bengals made. They trade away their stud WR to the Dolphins, end up with a top 3 draft choice and ended up making the playoffs. The Bengals did alright for themselves here and I think they decide to take the #2 WR off the board, Ballard's teammate in Keith. Keith is a huge specimen as well at 6'4" and 235 lbs, he's a load on the outside and a #1 WR for Garrapalo to throw to.

    4- GIANTS- QB Madison Haynes, 6'2", 222 lbs, Michigan State
    ---While Josh Freeman performed admirably for the Giants last year, it's time to find a true successor for Eli Manning. Haynes is considered the #2 QB in this class by SOME scouts, others have him #1 because the "supposed" #1 QB on the board, Mitch Glass, is only 5'11" and some feel his height maybe a detriment.

    5- SEAHAWKS (from MARSHALLS)- LT Brad Broussard, 6'4", 331 lbs, Florida
    ---The Seahawks managed not to get completely destroyed by most of their key players hitting free agency but they now do lack some pieces, especially on their defense. Yet here, we feel they go offense and tackle that huge void on their offensive line. Broussard can slide in as the RT and sure up one of the major holes there.

    6- PACKERS- DT Tyri Brandon, 6'5", 283 lbs, Ohio State
    ---There have been rumors that the Packers will go heavy defense in this draft. They can set the tone and grab Mr. Brandon, a highly skilled DT who is versatile in stopping the run and being an adept pass rusher. With sneaky speed and power, he bring a unique skill set to the Packers front.

    7- COLTS- DT Shep Stokes, 6'1", 276 lbs, Michigan State
    ---The Colts can go offensive line here and get some help to protect Andrew Luck, who had a myriad of injuries last year...or they can go defensive line where they are THIN. It's about value here and Stokes projects to be one of the best talents to come out of this draft. At a deep position in the draft, Stokes stands out as a beast DT and while not the heaviest, he sure packs a load and can be a big time run stuffer AND pass rusher from inside.

    8- COWBOYS- CB Cordero Todd, 6'1", 195 lbs, Wisconsin
    ---There's talk that the Cowboys are trying desperately to trade this pick but if they do stay here, look for them to hit the defense hard. A DE is a huge need but their secondary was by all means a mess last year. Cordero Todd was said to be a consensus #1 player and the Cowboys could get huge value here @ 8 if they decided not to move down in the draft.

    9- SAINTS (from EAGLES)- QB Mitch Glass, 5'11", 216 lbs, UCLA
    ---With the surprise of the off season possibly the Saints deciding not to retain their star QB, they MUST be thinking QB here right? Mitch Glass is regarded as the top QB in this class and while he's short in stature, the Saints surely know what it's like to have a short QB.

    10- BEARS- LOLB Vincent Bautista, 6'2", 244 lbs, Ohio State
    ---The Bears defense was quite awful last year despite some solid additions to their squad. They are lacking at the LB position, a staple of the old Bear teams in the past. Bautista is regarded as the best LB in this draft, a big time athlete with a mean streak which would make him a fan favorite around Chicago.

    11- RAMS- QB Wayne Lopez, 6'3", 218 lbs, Florida State
    ---The Rams currently have no QB's on their roster so they are definitely looking QB here. Lopez is the best of the remaining QB's and the last one with a 1st round grade. A big time arm with some good accuracy, Lopez maybe the best of the 3 1st round QB's.

    12- VIKINGS (from SAINTS)- RB Spenser Hubbard, 6'1", 244 lbs, Michigan State
    ---With Peterson gone, we figure the Vikings will try to draft his replacement. Hubbard isn't exactly AP part two but he's a huge bulking RB with massive power to move the chains.

    13- BILLS (from 49ERS)- QB James Dowling, 6'5", 234 lbs, Arkansas
    ---The Bills may get desperate and draft a QB here being that they cycled through a ton last year. Dowling has a 2nd round grade and has some slight accuracy issues but he has a massive arm, maybe the best in this class. Dowling can chuck it downfield and give the Bills a much needed shot in the arm.

    14- MARSHALLS- RE Barry Ray, 6'7", 274 lbs, Wisconsin
    ---The Marshalls have just 2 defensive linemen on their roster TOTAL! They will be looking heavy in the draft to find some studs. Ray is a 6'7" equal opportunity destroyer. Pass rushing beast and run stuffing monster. The top RE in the draft.

    15- JAGUARS- RB Tevin Dansby, 5'9", 191 lbs, Alabama
    ---Bama sure knows how to churn out some quality RB's...Dansby is no different as he was a collegiate beast. The Jags to date only have Storm Johnson as their RB so they need help there. Dansby can run between the tackles but has the speed to get outside, plus he's a good pass catcher out of the backfield.

    16- FALCONS- WR Jaquante Stover, 6'3", 203 lbs, Southern Illinois
    ---The Falcons lost two big time WR's to the dreaded WR curse and they are going to need someone to line up alongside Julio Jones. Stover is a 6'3" possession type WR who can move the chains. He ran in the 4.40's in his combine but he projects as a solid #2 WR in the pros with tons of time to improve as he's only 20 years old.

    17- BILLS- TE Derek Garcia, 6'4", 252 lbs, Tennessee
    ---The Bills may want some pieces for their new toy at QB and Garcia can come in and become a dangerous threat at the TE spot. Definitely a receiving threat, Garcia can create some big time mismatches as he's a super athlete and one of those "hybrid" types who can line up at WR if need be.

    18- RAVENS- CB Abraham McNeal- 6'0", 195 lbs, Michigan State
    ---Michigan State is just churning out pros left and right in this draft! McNeal is more of a 4'3 type corner but corners of his magnitude can go 3-4, 4-3, 46, nickel, etc...bottom line, McNeal is a stud and will give the Ravens a stud corner alongside Webb.

    19- CHARGERS- CB Jacoby Fisher, 6'2", 188 lbs, Georgia
    ---The Chargers need big time help in their secondary and Fisher maybe the most versatile CB in the draft. He's game changing type CB with a knack for the big play. Fisher is a huge 6'2" which between that and his speed, he can combat any big time WR in the league.

    20- BRONCOS- FS Olen Rogers, 5'11", 193 lbs, Wisconsin
    ---With Peyton Manning officially retiring, it marks a great HOF career. They do have Brock Osweiler now to take over so I don't think they will go QB. They do need FS help and Rogers is the best FS in the draft, a big time playmaker who can defend the deep middle very well.

    21- TEXANS- CB Haile Albert, 6'1", 187 lbs, Alabama
    ---Joseph is getting up there in age and you need some good corners in this man's league. Albert is one of the top corners in this deep class of CB's.

    22- SEAHAWKS- TE Jamaal Phillip, 6'7", 258 lbs, Tennessee
    ---While teammate Garcia was the more heralded and explosive TE, Phillip was the one many felt was the better all-around TE. Good run blocker and good pass catcher, Phillip will be a great get for a primary run-first Seahawks squad.

    23- RAMS (from BENGALS)- RT Steve Hunt, 6'4", 334 lbs, Wisconsin
    ---The Rams need guard help and while Hunt has been a tackle at Wisconsin, his 334 lb frame we feel works better inside. While it's considered a "reach" he's a big mauler type, a nasty type player who can make waves for big time runs.

    24- BUCS- FS Avery Lamb- 6'0", 217 lbs, Florida
    ---The Bucs are pretty stacked on paper so they maybe looking for a replacement for one of their older guys on the team. Lamb is a man who can blast opposing guys into next year and is a good centerfield type safety.

    25- PANTHERS- LT Delvin Massey- 6'2", 318 lbs, Miami (FL)
    ---There's a huge void at LT and Massey is a massive tackle who can protect Cam's blindside.

    26- PACKERS- LE Montrell Boykin, 6'7", 321 lbs, Maine
    ---The Packers continue to bolster their defense by taking Boykin, a skilled 3-4 end who can slide into the NT spot. He's been rising up the draft boards because he's such a skilled big man with agility. One of the big time risers in the draft.

    27- CARDINALS (from BROWNS)- ROLB Frank Prater, 6'4", 253 lbs, USC
    ---The Cards maybe looking for some help in their LB corps and Prater slides quite a bit down to the Cards. He's a big time athlete who can wreck havoc and run like a man-child from sideline to sideline.

    28- JETS- SS Shaquille Boyce- 6'0", 223 lbs, LSU
    ---The Jets are looking to shore up their FS spot alongside Calvin Pryor and Boyce and him can interchange each safety spot. The Jets love versatility and Boyce is a guy who can play either or safety spots.

    29- LIONS- WR Patrick Colbert- 6'4", 209 lbs, Maryland
    ---With the shocking release of Megatron, the Lions maybe looking to grab another tall basketball-like WR. Colbert is the best on the board and he does have some nice speed combined with the height the Lions brass really loves.

    30- PATRIOTS- CB R.T. Perez- 6'0", 194 lbs, Georgia
    ---While the Pats need some help at the WR spots, they know what makes their defense work. Man to man corners. The CB class is massive in depth and Perez is a 1st round grade at CB. He can fill in for Browner, who's reportedly moving to safety this year.

    31- BUCS (from RAIDERS)- LOLB Devin Brackett, 6'3", 251 lbs, LSU
    ---The Bucs literally have just 1 guy over the age of 30 aside from their offensive line. They maybe drafting for depth or a future trade in which they can go Brackett here. He would be the future after Casillas leaves. Brackett is just as fast and just as dangerous as their other stud LB's.

    32- FALCONS (from REDSKINS)- LT Evince Flowers, 6'6", 329 lbs, California
    ---The Falcons could go RB here as they are looking for a new feature back but they do need a tackle. Flowers is one of top tackles in the draft and one they can put at RT immediately.

    Not sure who the CPU will draft for me but if they grab a corner I'm good with it. Hopefully they draft that OLB or DE first but I'm sure they'll go corner or knowing my luck, they'll go WR.

    Sporty should pass on Megatron II :dino:
