    Put all your draft talk/smack here!!

    Well I think with Chris Long gone at 2. The Falcons might take Dorsey or Ryan at #3. Look for the Ravens to try to move up aggressively for Matt Ryan now. Only question is, can they talk the Falcons out of it?

    A direct quote from the ESPN Radio broadcast, as the commissioner walks to the podium with Atlanta's pick:

    "Here comes, in a blue blazer, the fashionable, likable Roger Gooddell."

    WTF?

    you don't have a team until you get a QB.

    Falcons make a wise decision. things are not shaping up well for a Patriot trade down. Oakland either needs to take Ellis or trade out here. Its unlikely.

    This could be a terrific trade-down scenario for Oakland with Dorsey on the board. They're short on picks.

    Instead Oakland takes the most explosive offensive player in the draft. Talentwise, this is the right pick, but Oakland has a LOT Of needs. They could have traded back and gotten more picks imo.

    Very wise pick by the Raiders here, McFadden fills an area of great need. :rolleyes:

    There HAS to be a trade here, right?? KC needs OT and DE in a big way, neither is great value at this point, and Dorsey is a stud.

    edit: i don't mean the pats, by the way...

    It might be harder to trade down then we thought, with the 10 minute limit. I think KC should take Gholston, or trade down for a team that is hungry for Dorsey.

    Seems now like we either take Gholston, or make a trade with the Panthers so they can get Dorsey or Ellis...

    Damn the Saints are crazy too. A first and second this year and a first next year. The KC chiefs gotta pull that.

    This is the worse possible scenario. Now we screwed with Ellis with no trade partner.

    The Chiefs take Dorsey. That's the best player left, so I can't blame them.

    How can the Jets not take Gholston?

    Pats have Ellis, or maybe a trade with Cincinnati?
