    Don Banks is reporting that Johnny Manziel doesn't want to play for Jacksonville. It doesn't sound as finite as Eli refusing to play for San Diego, but figured it was noteworthy enough to plug in here. On a sidenote, man it's tough to root for this kid.

    Too bad that he is now considered a first rounder.. really liked all the mocks a few weeks back where we took him in 2/3..

    If true, that says a lot about him. Jax is on the way up, and he has a clear view of the starting job from Day 1.

    Agreed. In about 3 years, if they stay on the same trajectory, they'll be kicking some ass in that division. I live in Jacksonville and was hoping he would get drafted by the Jags because I'll root for them any time they're not playing the Pats but, if true, it doesn't look like he will be.

    "And more" in the latter case including the Patriots possibly being interested in Bridgewater in round 1 (I'm sorry, I don't see any QB in the first unless they think a should-be-top-5-pick QB has fallen to them).

    Jay Glazer says that Houston are looking for three 1sts and a 2nd to trade down. however, that's for a trade to the bottom of the top 10 and that they'll accept less if they don't go down too far.

    Also reports that the Jets are looking to trade up for Beckham or that they're in love with Cooks.

    Help, I'm stuck in a chat with people who think Jacksonville is a up-and-coming squad. I thought this was about the draft. Do they have anyone good offense??!

    nfl.com indicated last night that 3 teams were interested in trading up for Beckham: the jets, the eagles and SF. It was also said that he could move in the top 15 or even the top 10.

    Not really but if they get a good QB and a good pass rush then they can certainly compete in the AFC South.

    Ugh. Bye bye Shazier. It was a good dream while it lasted.

    Berry to the Falcons for a 2nd? WTF, let's give up our 2nd right now!

    I live(d) in San Diego for a while and have been telling a lot of SD fans that taking a good OG is what they need to do, despite everyone saying they should get a NT. They need to keep Rivers up right. Fluker was a start, Bitonio would be a huge help.

    I hope the Jets are in live with Cooks. After Mike Evans, I think Cooks is the second most likely to bust WR.

    If we can get Berry for a 2nd round pick I would be all for it! Would have to choose between McCourty and Berry extension tho

    Why are KC trying to trade away Berry? The kid is a stud!

    With that said though, I wouldn't choose him over McCourty. For what I think we need, McCourty makes more sense. Dude can play the center of the field, and the range he has covers so much ground.

    Can the Pats afford Berry's 8 mil cap hit this year?

    No surprise here, but schefter and rapaport are reporting the patriots are one of the handful of teams looking to move down.

    No major surprise here, but Jay Glazer reporting that the Bucs will not pick Manziel with pick number 7.
