TOP 7 Ok, the studs have finally been accepted: Newton, Gabbert, Von Miller, Dareus, Peterson, Green and Jones. There could be some moving around. But it seems as if these are very likely to be the top 7 players drafted. Gabbert won't get past 7. A team might even trade up to get one or even two of the studs, but it seems unlikely. =================================================== THE FIRST TRADE ZONE 8-12 ----------------------------- There are five teams. At least four have had lots of trade rumors associated with them. I'm sure even the Texans will listen to offers. Quarterbacks will drive the decisions, although the quarterbacks could actually be drafted later. Certainly, TENN, MINNY and WASH need quarterbacks badly. ===================================================== THE RELATIVE LULL 13-21 The talent is there. The needs are there. Business as usual, except for picks as a result of trade downs from 8-12 ====================================================== THE NEXT TRADE ZONE 22-32 Those who didn't yet get a QB or an OT will need to act. I expect BUFF and DEN to trde into into the first.
