    Polian built the Bills that went to 4 straight SB and the Seyton led Colts. I'm with you, I'm not a personal fan of his, but you have to respect his opinions when it comes to player personel, especially over the so called "mock experts".


    I think Teddy Bridgewater, he just never showed me anything in college.

    As for can't miss, I would go with the tackle Robinson from Auburn. I forsee him being a perennial Pro Bowler.

    Not that these boards mean anything but I have seen Hageman at 20 and Hageman at 70. A wide variety of opinion.

    For me, it's Derek Carr. I tend to agree with McShay on his true value being in the round 3-4 area.

    If Houston drafts Clowney I think it is unlikely he will be viewed as a bust even if it is misconception. The Watt factor will leave Clowney 1on1 the majority of the time, in a 1on1 situation he will be able to get to the QB with his physical gifts alone. If Clowney goes to a team where he is the focus of the opponents offensive line it is more likely that he is viewed as a bust.

    In no particular order, I view these players as the riskiest early round players.

    Anthony Barr
    Bradley Roby
    Dominique Easley*
    Stephon Tuitt
    Brandin Cooks
    Blake Bortles
    Kelvin Benjamin
    Dee Ford
    Demarcus Lawrence
    Jace Amaro
    Louis Nix
    Cyrus Kouandjio*
    Cody Latimer
    Tim Savage

    I think Demarcus Lawrence is a slam dunk for the player least likely to be remembered. ;)

    I'm surprised so many people think Mike Evans is a can't miss prospect.

    Questioning how he'll fit in a scheme is fine, but Aaron Donald is the polar opposite of a workout warrior. He's about as blue collar on a football field as they come.
