    Going to start this thread because a) I'm interested in this sort of thing, and B) I want a record for next year so that I can look back and see who is a reliable source. So...


    Bucky Brooks on Justin Hunter:

    Daniel Jeremiah also say's Hunter will go much higher than people think.

    This seems weird to me but :

    Brad Clark‏@nflfuture14h
    Report: Barkley and Nassib in 2-horse race for 8th pick http://goo.gl/fb/mzAYY


    His supporting tweets :

    Joe Buscaglia @JoeBuscaglia

    Nassib to the #Bills is the toast of draft rumor talk right now, but don't forget about Barkley. They like him a lot, too. Two-horse race.


    and

    Chris Mortensen ✔ @mortreport

    Growing belief around NFL it's Nassib or trade down if they can RT @Sabrefan0412: ANY. Idea which way the Bills are leaning at 8 ???

    Doug Marrone once said that Barkley was better than Luck and RGIII. I've been leaning one way or the other on Nassib/Barkley to the Bills.

    I've never seen Nassib - no reason to watch Syracuse. I can't see Barkley's mediocre arm playing in cold, windy Buffalo. Regardless, it just seems VERY high for either one to go.

    I'm still trying to figure out why anybody connected with an NFL organization would tip off the media to any possibilities. Everything is leaked with a purpose in mind.

    This is not a rumor. But I don't know who was saying this as I had my wife banging my ear while I was trying to listen.

    "We have 150 players in this years draft graded as 3rd round selections". I guess that serves as a example that this is a mid round draft.

    I also noticed that Pro Football Weekly have given the top 20 players their lowest grades that I can remember. So trade down Bill, if you can, trade down!!!!

    You have said nothing about players rated 25-75, often the sweet spot of the draft. We are making much of the weakness at the top which has little effect on the patriots. If we wish we can have 3 picks in this sweet spot instead of our first 3 picks.

    In what could perhaps be classified as a smokescreen - a Tony Pauline blurb might firmly put a wrench in the Jamar Taylor to the Patriots talk:

    NFL Draft Insider News & Notes: Monday 4/22

    It's nonetheless interesting, as for the longest time it was the WR position that had these height restrictions unless said prospects possessed exceptional physical abilities in their diminutive states. It looks as though CB evaluation is finally catching up to its antithesis. Its a copycat league.

    Rumors that the 49ers are (as could be expected given their pile of picks) looking to move in to the early teens.

    I love Lattimore, I think he would be a perfect compliment to Ridley and Vereen. He isn't the fastest or the most physical but he has elite lateral movement and his vision is amazing. His ability to see holes, lower his pad level and burst through without being touched is amazing. Add in his quick feet and change of direction skills to make guys miss in the open field and I think he has the potential to be special. Oh, and he's a hell of a guy too, what an amazing story and inspirational person.

    Yup. Wherever he gets drafted, he's shown himself a winner in this process. Really impressive guy (and family).

    If Bill trades down, I hope he gets better trade value than last year.
    He traded a 2nd round pick (#62) for a 3rd round pick (#90) and a
    5th round pick (#163). Trade value loss of 120 points. Then he
    traded the 5th round pick (#163) for a 6th round pick (#197) and two
    7th round picks (#224 and #235). Trade value loss of 9 points. Luckily,
    the #224 pick netted him Dennard.

    Trading down may be difficult this year because of the way the talent is distributed. Most teams seem to want to trade down instead of trading up.
    There aren't any good quarterbacks to trade up for.

    I want to see Bill get decent value if he trades down, not just acquire
    a couple of extra picks in the 6th or 7th round. There aren't many
    Dennards available that late in the draft.

    I like the guy, but unless we get an extra 4 or 5 somehow, I really don't wanna see the Pats using a 3rd round pick on the guy. The quickness and lateral ability spoken about in this quote above, might be severely affected by his many injuries.

    Losing 9 points on day 3 means nothing.

    I see it this way: he turned ONE pick into a starting CB in Dennard, a core ST player in Ebner, and a flyer on Ebert. That's a win in my book.

    It seems like every team is talking about trading down. Whilst I don't expect it with out limited picks, I wouldn't be surprised if BB trades up again because this is potentially the buyers market of all buyers markets.

    Many of the mocks have only one QB drafted in the first round. If this plays out, there may be teams wanting to move into the first to get their man.

    I was thinking more about us trading up in to the mid first or early twenties. Personally I don't see it because there's no-one that really excites me unless Cooper or Ansah fall.

    Unless there's a Mallett trade, I can't see us moving up.
    Reading Twitter, sounds like the Browns are interested in Smith, Manual, or trading up w/ Oakland for Ansah. That leaves trade partners for Mallett thin - bottom line I think it's highly unlikely we do a Mallett trade. And it being a buyers market, can't see us picking up much for trading down.

    I am having a hard time seeing who would really want to do business with us at 29. It doesn't look like an ideal Trade out spot. Also Teams who have the 25 - 26 and the 27th selections ie...MINNESOTA - GREEN BAY and HOUSTON could easily go WR. Which is a definite NEED for both Minnesota and Houston.

    If Rhodes somehow drops to 29, I think we have to take him. I just don't see it, but Mayock is usually dialed in pretty good.

    I'd prefer Justin Pugh that Daniel Jeremiah gave us in the round table mock NFL Network did.
