I am working a few trade scenarios currently... If no trade, pick will come in a timely fashion.

Really was hoping Patterson fell to me there but I still got one of the guys I wanted at 1:06 and was not all that dissatisfied with the guy I chose at 1:08. Keenan has some concerns but would have been one of the top guys picked without the MCL sprain. I felt he was my best chance at getting a guy who can produce real soon and continue for some time. Guess we will see. Not a great draft class this year. ;-D



I still like Allen quite a bit, this off-season wasn't the best for him but he was long perceived to be the #1 WR in the class and for good reason. I'm happy he went to a good landing spot, Rivers is perfect for him, it's an easy sight to be a starter, and I expect McCoy coming over from Denver to upgrade the offense. He's been compared to Miles Austin a bunch and I can see that.

I was hoping to get Michael here, but I will roll the dice on Lattimore.

I've seen lots of different opinions on whether or not he can work his way back from his devastating injury, and even if he can, will he be productive. I know some prominent cafe members wont touch him due to his injuries. We shall see.

Ya I am very afraid of him but would have considered him at 2:01 only because I" have 3 starting RB's and I can afford to wait a few years. I wouldnt have touched him in the 1st though. I just have this thing that my first round picks should play that year even if it is just a little otherwise I pass.

I likely would have taken Lattimore with my pick but I'm happy with Eifert - I wish he'd sell his routes a little harder, he's so much better against a zone, but from day one his ball skills will be some of the best in the NFL. And you can take that to the bank.

I also strongly considered Lattimore.

I'll be leaving tomorrow around 2 PST. I do have a smart phone, but I have no idea what cell reception is like where I am going. I'll check here tomorrow before I go in case we get to me, and if I have reception I will try to navigate through the cafe on my phone (not the easiest site for it). If not, unfortunately I'll have to hold the draft up until Monday evening.

I know that we're not skipping anyone over the weekend, but Samsdad's 24 hour clock has expired.
