    If Aaron Donald fell that far and we didn’t trade up for him I’d throw a fit.

    Mack had a mid-round draft grade last year had he opted in, was on all the pre-season watch lists, was a first round pick in September mocks, and dominated at a D-1 school.

    Had anybody heard of Desir prior to 2014? Has anyone watched film on him? Is a single player that he competed against going to play in the NFL? Come on, man.

    If you prefer Desir, cool. Your comment was that you couldn't understand why anyone would take Desir over Baptiste. Level of competition matters -- a lot. I dropped 62 points in a HS basketball game with a kid with two prothetic legs guarding me. Believe it or not, neither Coach Boeheim nor Coach Krzyzewski showed up with a scholarship offer the next day.

    The run on corners and the number of WR's drafted in the first two rounds will be the biggest factor in this draft. I find it difficult to decide who will be the 6th WR or the 6th corner chosen.

    I think that Mayock avoids trades rather than guess on who will trade. Obviously, the most likely scenario is that the patriots will trade down.

    Many here seem to believe that all we need at TE is Gronk for part of the season, Hooman and a late rounder. Some dream of a productive Harrison or Willimams. I think that the media has it right. The patriots are likely to draft a TE by pick 50, perhaps even at 29. My preference is ASJ.

    Here are some thoughts :

    - I'm surprised he has the Browns at 4 pick Matthews. I would think Watkins would be a better pick there or Manziel
    -Johnny Maniziel to the Cowboys after they just signed Romo to the big contract, plus with all the defensive help they need, just doesn't make sense to me
    -Kouandrjio at 19 seems like a reach.
    --Donald at 24? I have recently read where tampa would consider him or Mike Evans at number 7.
    -I'd much rather either trade back our pick or take someone like Tuitt or Hageman at 29 than take Amaro at 29.

    Considering Mayock's draft, who do you see folks trading up to 29 to get? Perhaps someone will trade or for a OT or CB. The choices should be thinning out a bit at these positions by 29.

    I don't think Manziel in Dallas is a total absurd.

    They have been in need for a decent backup in the recent seasons, and lost playoff chances for that. Manziel will bring some circus but it will also have some effect on Romo, we don't know if positive or negative for him Tony. I think it will bring pressure.

    They don't have a team all set in any area, they need a total rebuild and drafting a QB with a different style, maybe it's the right time to build around.

    What I know is if I were a cowboys fan I would be making voodoo to get rid of Tony Romo , I'm not even a Cowboys fan but I can't stand that guy, I bet and have been affected many times by his chokes.

    If you follow NFL memes they posted recently Romo going to college games and teams losing inexplicable games, he's the bad luck in person, if I see him coming in my direction in a street I cross to the other side.

    OK, Romo just signed a $100M contract with $55M guaranteed. Many fans like to boo him every time he makes a mistake. And now, you think that it is fine to bring in a QB who thinks that he is this year's Luck? Creating a QB controversy when you have just signed your quarterback to a big contract could only makes sense to Jerry Jones.

    I think Manziel is the second coming of Ryan Leaf, so Dallas seems like a great place to accelerate him hitting the floor and flaming out.

    I'm not going into financials, Romo's contract is obvious a problem, just like is a problem having Tony Romo as your QB. When you have a problem you need to solve.

    How will they do that? I don't care, fug the cowboys. I like when they lose by a huge choke, first take is hilarious next morning.

    Seriously, I would never give that contract to Romo, I would move on from him smoothly at the end of his last contract without a single concern. He is a choke artist.

    Kind of hoping some quarterbacks fall and teams will want to trade up to the end of the first round to take them. Either Bortles, Bridgewater, Carr or maybe Garoppolo.

    Besides Donald falling to #24 I don't think anything was way out of left field. I think it is entirely possible we only have 2 round 1 QBs (though I would beat on the over).
