I am curious to see Tyler Eifert's 40 time. He seems faster than Rudolph.

I usually wouldnt ever touch a OG in round 1 unless I was getting a once in a decade prospect. Warmack may just be that type of player. That guy looks phenomenal but I have a hard time seeing him fall to 23.

Yup. St. Louis and Chicago would be stupid to pass on him.

2012 AP ALL-AMERICAN SECOND TEAM: WR - Quinton Patton, a native of La Vergne, Tenn... caught 104 passes for 1,392 yards and 13 touchdowns in 12 games this season... He finished the year averaging 13.4 yards per catch and 116.0 yards per game, ranking fourth in the nation in receiving yards per game and fifth in the nation in receptions per game. Patton was also fifth in the nation in touchdowns scored among wide receivers.

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=111172&draftyear=2013&genpos=WR



Strengths: Possesses an athletic build with long arms. Quick accelerator who gobbles up the cushion. Shows good quickness, strength and competitiveness versus press coverage. Sets up the defender with a variety of releases, alternating his gait to keep his opponent off-balance. Consistently catches the ball with his hands, away from his body. Experience as a punt returner is obvious once he gets the ball in his hands in the open field. Shows good vision to set up blocks and good shake to elude defenders one on one. May not possess elite breakaway speed but has the burst to turn a short pass into a long gain. Tracks the ball very well over his shoulder, showing excellent body control to keep his feet in bounds while securing the pass. Alert, competitive downfield blocker.

Weaknesses: Does not appear to possess elite breakaway speed. Struggles to gain separation on deep passes and while a very good route-runner, doesn't possess true explosiveness out of his breaks. Isn't afraid to mix it up with defenders as he runs his routes and will push-off on occasion to help gain separation, drawing the rare offensive pass interference flag (Texas A&M). Possesses generally reliable hands but will drop an occasional pass, especially when defenders are battling with him. Must get stronger and improve his concentration to make the tough grabs with defenders ripping away at his arms as the ball arrives... Can make defenders miss but doesn't show much strength to run through arm tackles.

Patton is another player I like a lot, could be a good player to keep an eye on in round 2.

I'm not really interestedin OG (1st) or TE (1st or 2nd).
If i'm getting a passing threat, I want someone who is going at least medium to long distance quickly, to get additional defenders out of the box.

Question:
Which Round 1 or 2 WR is the best blocker of the usual suspects. (Patterson, Rodgers, Williams, Allen, Hunter, Hopkins). Maybe this could also play a factor in who the brass possibly drafts.

That is a really good question, but i would say its Terrence Williams. To me him and Da'rick are the most physical WRs in the top of the draft.

Don't forget about character. I wouldn't be surprised if Da'Rick Rogers is off Spielman's board entirely.

Spielman did take a chance on Ballard and to a lesser extent Harvin (that seemed to be all Childress but I am sure Spielman played some kind of role in the process).

Though the difference between a likely 2nd rd pick (rogers) is pretty strong versus a 4th rd pick (Ballard).

If the Vikings acquire him, could he change his number to either 3 or 7?

(Subtle WW2 referrence here...)
