What has jumped out to you in the NFL draft? What aspects of the trades grab your interest? What picks surprised you? What was the best prospect/scheme match? What drop/reach was warranted?
I'm surprised about the Redskins/Jaguars trade-
1- The Redskins actually traded down, and got a 2nd round pick for it. Considering that team doesn't have a 3rd or 4th, that's significant. Will they manage to trade down again?;
2- Does the Jax drafting of Gabbert make Garrard tradeable/cuttable? Would that make him the best stopgap QB available?
As a Matt Ryan owner, love the move up to get Julio Jones.
While everyone is surprised about the Vikes getting Ponder, it's the next pick that has me surprised. Detroit needed oline help badly, and only 1 had been taken at that point. Great that they could strengthen their d-line, but...
I like the Falcons' trade up. Far from a fan of the Saints'. I don't see how Ingram helps the team enough to justify what they gave up- 2nd this year, 1st next year.
Glad to see Chiefs went WR (major need) rather than working on the d-line, as frequently mocked.
Big Faller/Reach- Locker, Amukamara, Castanzo, Carpenter. I know Locker often got mocked to Tenn, but I still see that as too early, based on talent.
What do you think of the Draft, either in terms of fantasy terms or in real-NFL perspectives.
