I thought it might be fun to have thread where we can make claim what might happen on draft day through out the NFL. Who will make trades, bold draft choices, combine this with possible sig bets and it could be intriguing. If not this thread will surely fall by the wayside never to be heard from again. Laughing

In such a "weak" draft, teams will draft their QB early on in the 1st, and high risk players will also go early.

That defies logic, can't say that I feel the same.

This draft has plenty of NFL talent, just not at the "glamour" positions, except WR.

Agree. O-line is DEEP.

Well there's a reason I put " weak" instead of just weak. I don't actually think that the draft is weak, but the top isn't very strong so people label it as weak. But, with there being 3 rounds worth good talent, teams can afford to take a riskier player early on. I'm not saying a guy like Mathieu will go round 1, I'm saying that Tavon Austin, Cordarelle Patterson, Lane Johnson, Da'Rick Rogers, and Marcus Lattimore will all go very early (some earlier than others). And, while this QB class doesn't have a super star, there are easily 4 guys that should go round 1 and a few more that could also be 1st round picks.

Agree. O-line is DEEP.


O-line, safety, DT, CB are all deep IMO.

I think its a particularly strong TE class as well.

The lack of QB's, WR's and RB's misleads everyone.


For the topic, I think we will see a lot less trades than usual. That mostly has to do with the above.

This is one of the better WR classes in recent memory. There's no Green or Fitzgerald, but there are at least 5 first round worthy WRs in this class.

Tavon Austin, Cordarelle Patterson, Keenan Allen, Da'Rick Rogers, Robert Woods, Justin Hunter, Terrance Williams, DeAndre Hopkins, and Markus Wheaton. That is a stacked WR class, all of those should at worst be solid #2 WR's.

I don't agree with all of the players, but do agree that it's got a lot of talented players, which is why we should get used to the idea of a 2nd round wide receiver.

Yes, and I envision Kenny Stills, Ace Sanders, and Ryan Swope providing tremendous value for some lucky teams in the middle of the draft.

Stedman Bailey! Agree on Swope.

Well yeah, I don't think that Hopkins, Williams, or Wheaton will go round 1, but they're pretty close to 1st round talent. Quinton Patton is another good one too. And Marquess Wilson is a very very talented WR, but is a head case so he doesn't get much love. Honestly I'd love any of those WR's.

Yeah, those guys too, even though they're more #3 guys. And Conner Vernon is a similar player to Wes Welker who could potentially provide a great slot WR for someone late in the draft.
