||Local media seems to
think it will be Joeckel, but theycould draft Fisher, &
there's a lot of PR posturing that suggests they'd like to
trade down. Albert trade still not consummated but is
expected to be
||Latest buzz is either Fisher or Joeckel
but Barkely's name has surfaced (maybe after a trade down)?
Probably won't trade pick. Early local buzz hints at Jordan.
||Trying to trade down - otherwise BPA. Floyd receiving most love in local media. Fisher top pick. If he's not there,
Floyd. Could take Geno Smith.
||Lane Johnson getting most draft day buzz. Have it narrowed to 4 players but want to
trade down. Jordan played for Kelly. Lotuleilei on radar. Canceled visit with Milliner. Lane Johnson better fit for active Kelly
offense. I think Austin or G Smith may be the 4th guys
they're considering but not this high.
||Just a gut feeling that,the Lions will
not let Jordan get past #5. Not seeking to trade up for top pick;
more likely to try to trade down (LaConfora). CB not a
priority. Open to taking an OG - Leaning Warmack. Warmack and Milliner
visiting. Checking out TE Dion Sims.
||Milliner a priority (Pauliine), but there
are late hour knocks on his durability. Hayden could be
another option but probably not this high. Mingo in play
(could be trade bait) Seeking to trade down.
||If Jordan falls to here, I think Keim
will grab him. If not, I think the Cards will stay with
Cooper or Warmack. Keep an eye on Jarvis Jones as a longshot
at #7. Potter could move to LG (suggesting that
we wouldn't take Warmack or Cooper?). If one
of the 3 OT's should fall here, we'd take him, but odds are
highly unlikely. Wecould trade down a little bit and hope to draft
a guard or Fluker if a few guys we liked were still on our
board. A relatively low number of prospects (20) said to
have visited: QB (6): Barkley, Glennon, Landry-Jones,
Nassib, Scott, G Smith. RB (4): Michael, D Washington,
Murray, K Davis. WR(2): Wheaton, Buckner. TE: Kasa, No OL's.
DL/LB (4): Ansah, D Jordan. LB: Alonso, Magee. DB 3):
Milliner, Mathieu, Cyprian. Keep an eye on these guys - In
the past, the Cards
have tapped into pool like this in later rounds.
||Barkely's name has
surfaced, but we're having trouble believing that they'd
draft Nassib or Barkley this high. (Geno maybe, but not the
||They now have Tampa's #13 and could
package this pick, #13 &/or a later pick to move up and grab
Milliner. Most local buzz involves Mingo (here or at #13),
but J Jones' name has surfaced Could target a TE
but not this high. According to ESPN-NY, they're not
interested in Eifert here, but could be targeting Ertz in
the next round. Interested in Austin. Setting sights on
Mingo. Working out Geno, meeting with Manuel and Dysert.
Interested in Swearinger and Cyprian. Earlier rumor had them
trying to trade down to stockpile more picks.
||The big DT hard to ignore at #10. Say they need a cover corner. Vaccaro, Schwenke, Elam
visiting. Part of Pugh, Mingo, Cyprian
||Charger OL is a nightmare. Warmack great
value here. Met with Te'o.
||Miami had been linked with Rhodes. But
Hayden has come from out of nowhere and, if Miami wants a
corner, Hayden now would be their guy. Intrigued with Watson. Sounds like a team
that wants to trade up
or down. Albert trade still "in process.". Expressed
interest in Eiftert or Austin. Don't
feel they need to take a CB early. Said to be interested in
DT's Lotuleilei and Richardson.
||Jets (fr TB)
||They could also take Austin at #9 and
Mingo here.Traded Revis to TB for pick and could set their
sights on another CB (despite having Kyle Wilson opposite
Cromartie). I could see them packaging both 1st round picks
or a 1st plus a later pick to move up to grab Milliner.
||Say they do not plan to trade up from
here. Need help inside on defense.
||Most mocks point to J Jarvis Jones (who
are we to disagree)? Rob Ryan needs to
reload. Ansah is moving up fast and could go higher but he's
a high risk/high reward prospect.
||Could take a WR (Austin or Hopkins) with
either 1st round pick), but a primo TE would be an even
better security blanket for their QB. Fluker under consideration here. Vaccaro mentioned twice
combining #16 and #22...Brandt - Rams need to replace S
Jackson with a bruiser, so Lacy or Ball could be a
possibility (but not this high)
||Their OLB's are getting long in the
tooth. Ansah - despite the risk - could be the answer. Said to prefer Bray over other rookie
QB's (I doubt this high, though). J Jones Austin or Rhodes. Some talk about RB - possibly Lacy.
||Need OL help and could go Fluker, but
most mocks associate them with Vaccaro. Sylvester Williams a possibility. Mingo Warmack or Werner. Want an OL.
||We hear Ogletree, Te'o or Fluker., but
Watson's surfacing on a few late mocks. Would
love to move up to grab Warnack. Showing interest in TE Dion
||Te'o Ogletree, Fluker. They need receiving
help opposite Marshall....Te'o a logical replacement for
Urlacher but a bit risky at #20. On Cyprian tour list.
||Watson (logical replacement for A
Smith), but Fluker's still available....also said to be looking at TE's so don't discount
Eifert or Ertz.
||They're not going to reach for a pick,
but they need a replacement for Steven Jackson and Lacy
would look nice here. Patterson mentioned twice at #16 and
||MLB a need. Late trade chatter. Considering a trade upward to secure
elite WR or CB. Wants to add a couple of WR's somewhere in
draft. Patterson, Short or K Allen...Lost Harvin.
Ogletree and Te'o visiting.
||Woods made Barkley look good. S Williams, Hunter, Te'o...Luck needs help
at receiver. There's a run on them
||Need a CB. Rhodes falls due to emergence
of Hayden higher up. Banks, Te'o or S Williams. Another
Williams in the defensive middle.
||Ball, Elam or Eifert
||Hopkins Woods or Elam...On Cyprian tour
||Several late mocks have them taking
Werner. Hunt a possibility. Dysert visiting. 2 for Trufant. Interested in RB's Michael
and LeV Bell.
||Pats love to grab raw athletes and mold
them. Unlikely to trade up. Met with Wheaton, TH Simon and Woods. 2 for Hunt
||Would like to trade up to grab Jordan, Milliner, Rhodes or Trufant). Seeks to add OL ballast but not in 1st
round....Trufant a possibility...Looking at TE's despite
||Need to replace Gholston..Probably will
package extra picks to trade up...lost Sopoaga.
||Expressing interest in Carradine. Taking close look at Fragel. Elam, Minter Carradine...Te'o makes sense
here. Newsome says the "comfort level" with Te'o and his off
the field issues is good. So does Elam as a replacement for Ed Reed
||This is where teams try to trade up -
especially to grab a QB. Jags saidn not to be sold on
||SF is loaded everywhere. Can take BPA.
Need a backup QB & run could begin here.
||Meeting with Lattimore. Want to get bigger on defense
||Must give Stafford more weapons. Need RB
||Dalton needs someone to take some of the
heat off J Jones.
||Watson is BPA. (O-line would be upgraded
with addition of Watson and Cooper). If they draft an edge rusher first, they
figure to draft a couple of OL with the next two picks.
Could also use help at safety (to replace A-Dub's presence). Or this
could be where they roll the dice on a QB. (I like Matt
Scott nearly as well the other top guys - but he
might not be available later. You rolls the dice and takes
your chances). In each round of every draft, there are at
least one or two surprise players who fall thru the cracks.
BPA figures to be Swearinger, but Cards could opt to draft a
G, C or T here; Quesenberry, Schwenke or Warford strong
