Take it we are just going to go the whole hog and name Bama as our feeder team.

I’m ok with taking Barmore here. He will help the interior rush at least even if he has issues getting pushed around against the run.

Yeah at pick 38 am good with it. I was more concerned about us doing it in the first round which had seen some mocks. We are mainly a 3-4 now so not sure how Barmore will translate to that but it’s a value pick for sure.

Another safety gone and still Moehrig on the board.

The Lions doing some good work in this draft so far. Strengthening both offensive and defensive lines.

Aye add the name of Owusu-Koramoah to that list. Some team needs to be trading up for that soon as whatever you give up will be a steal now.

Asante Samuel would of liked him to fall to us on Koramoah he really should not have fallen out of the 1st never mind he is in the 2nd half of the 2nd.

That whole Cards O now is going to be a nightmare to defend.

JOK now off the board to Cleveland. Their front office have done a fantastic job this off season. Not something could level at them a great deal in the past.

Hell of a lot of trades tonight. My guess is teams are happy to sacrifice the lower round picks as just can't do the same due diligence over zoom and pro-days.

KC really going to beef up that O-Line. Definitely learnt the lesson of the Super Bowl.

Packers made the right pick. Whether it makes Rodgers happy or not I’d question.

Unless Tampa goes with one now the 2nd tier QB’s have made it all through the second round.

Yeah i think it was KC big need the only issue I see is how quickly they can gel as a unit having so many new pieces.

That Texans pick given they have not had any previous ones in this draft suggests that Watson is either gone soon or more immediately going on the exempt list.

It's going to be interesting what happens to Watson and in particular what the league does this isn't an RB but one of the faces of the league will be interesting to see what kind of punishment they levy
On Day 3 would love to see a One tech DT for us.

Have to admit taking a RB with our 4th rounder is the first one that I’m not overly enamoured with. I just don’t see that as any sort of need for us. The draft is already a success for me regardless after the Ronnie Perkins pick but would have just preferred us to look at a receiver there.

Trey Smith and Dylan Moses keep on sliding due to injuries could be premium UDFA's thought someone might take a gamble on them.

At this point I think in the 7th round personally I would rather go the UDFA route in all honesty. Obviously there was a FAR different context but remember Lael Collins saying he'd sit out if anyone tried draft him lower than the fourth round. At least can negotiate a contract with a team you'd want to go to.

Yeah I can see that point that it can be a lot better to go undrafted and pick your situation rather than get drafted late on.

I'm sorry but this is one of the most blatant publicity stunts have ever seen. I think it was Shannon Sharpe who said it best if he wanted to do this why not do it when teams were actually asking him to rather than wait until he's 34. The Rex Ryan Jets weren't even this needy for attention. Guess the Jags are going to be on Hard Knocks this year...

The worst bit about this Tebow news is that every media outlet in the States is going to remind me that he beat the Steelers in a playoff game...

He always got way too much credit for that TD in overtime anyway. Most of that was because Demaryius Thomas ragdolled Ike Taylor.

I’m just waiting for the over-under on Skip Bayless wanting him to take over as starting QB from Trevor Lawrence.

Yeah don't get why they brought Tebow back surely there is better options in FA / UDFA I would hazard a guess he is one of the roster cuts. Also looks like we are getting two London games Jags and Falcons being the Home teams.

That’s a nasty one start with. Would have thought they could have given you a divisional game. We’ve got the Fins at home so that will a difficult one. Also looks like Brady makes his return in week 4, am kinda glad that will be out the way early.
