    Latest version of rumors and audibles out from Nolan Nawrocki at PFT:

    NFL Draft - NFL draft preview and analysis from Pro Football Weekly

    Nawrocki puts some brakes on the "Curry is slipping" theory, claiming that Curry is too safe a bet to slip bast Cleveland at #5. He emphasizes that teams picking at the top of the draft will play it safe rather than go for the uncertain home run: What has become increasingly clear, in a weak draft not featuring elite talent, however, is that NFL decision makers will have a tendency to play it safe. "You got four first-time GMs drafting in the top five," a longtime executive said. "The last thing you want to do is take too much risk and bust on your first pick. I think we'll see some surprises because (teams drafting in the top five) are going to be stuck, unable to trade out, and happy to hit a double. The one thing you don't want to do is swing for the fences and strike out." Nawrocki does note that financial cost may rule out Curry at #3 to KC or #4 to Seattle (particularly given Seattle's investment in Leroy Hill), but he still doesn't think he'll fall out of the top 5 because he's the safest bet in a very unsafe draft.

    When referring to Wilfork a scout says "...How many of those guys have a happy-go-lucky personality and are always smiling? The best defensive linemen I’ve seen were ornery — they did not want to talk to anyone.” Have they heard/seen an interview with Vince? Nicest guy in the world. Guy obviously isnt well informed
