    By that logic, we're drafting a Safety...
    Yes several people had all of them in mocks, with the exception of Prince, who nobody could fathom would fall that far.

    Particularly I don't get how people are claiming JPP was a surprise, he was majorly discussed on these boards as a potential pick. There was a major debate about him vs Derrick Morgan.

      Some may not agree, but I'd actually like safety assuming there's no crazy BPA.....
      Rolle hasn't lived up to his contract,he'll be 31 & making 9mil going into 2014 season......Brown,other than the great turnovers he was average....will hill, we have no clue what were getting....

      IMO Matt Elam is future all pro....

        As Chris Rock says,"Good Lawd!". All he has to do is just stand there and it kills any running game or passing lanes up the middle. Should make it easy on defensive ends or linebakcers as they know the play will have to come outside.

          You watch the Missouri game cut up I did of him? He needs a lot of technique work but he is just so big and strong.

            Mile Kiper Jr. said today I think that Fluker is the best run blocking RT he has ever evaluated and that he thinks he could now be getting closer to a top 10 pick.

              I also found some of the ones where Fluker owned him kinda funny too.

                According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Alabama RT D.J. Fluker is "one of true rising players in draft."Fluker is universally considered a first-round talent, but questions about his athleticism have some projecting him as a guard. Checking in at 6-foot-5, Fluker has shed 16 pounds from his Senior Bowl weight of 355. According to NBC Sports Network's Ross Tucker, at least one team picking in the top-ten "loves" Fluker.

                  That will make most people here happy. I like him but if he is gone, at least we do not have to make that decision and it will drop another player to us.

                    I really don't see a RT going that early.. Unless a team really does view him as a stud guard

                      I dont' care what he did around 3sacks.. U give up 3sacks to one player in a game, ur owned.. He can't handle any kinda speed on the outside, and there fore, is probably gonna have to play inside as a pro...

                          Yep, had a bad game, therefore it's a done deal, he'll never be able to handle any speed on the end. Barkevious Mingo is slow I guess.

                            The more I watch fluker the more I see Osemele, the guy the ravens drafted last season in the 2nd.

                            About the same size, both maulers with mean streaks. Both questionable athleticism at OT.

                            Osemele played a bit of RT for the ravens, but ultimately ended up at guard where he was dominant. He's protected inside from speed a bit, and his size makes up for any lack of lateral movement, and his mean streak and size work great going forward.

                            It's not a dissimilar situation than the two OTs the saints took a couple years back in the mid rounds, in Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks.

                            Mauling RTs, IMO, are better players at guard if they have trouble when on an island.

                            And LTs, IMO, are better at RT.

                            I don't think the "power tackle" and "pass blocking" tackle difference exists anymore. At least not for a team that likes to throw the ball.

                              I don't like it either. He struggles mightily in pass protection. On second thought, the pick is intriguing if you have him pegged as a guard at the next level.

                              Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                                wow. i made a post a couple days ago discussing how my disgust for the fluker pick was tempered bc he should transition into an elite G prospect (his footowkr wont be an issue there opposed to OT) and with his arm length and strength, he'd be dominant in both phases run and pass blocking...and now i see people following
