    Draft Week: Clear as Mud
    Posted by Rafael at Sunday, April 22, 2012
    Almost every prospect is in
    Bruce Irvin's uncertain shoes.
    "Nobody knows anything."

    The screenwriter William Goldman uttered this line about Hollywood. I think it speaks to this year's NFL draft. We're four days from opening up the bazaar and most teams past the Colts and Redskins have done a good job of hiding their true favorite or favorites. Do we really know who the Browns will take? The Rams? The Dolphins, Panthers, Bill or Chiefs? Is your Cowboys short board still about five or six deep?

    What's more, I've rarely seen such a divergence of opinions within the draftnik community. Pick a name. Courtney Upshaw? Some people love him. Some think he's overrated. The debates become more furious when you take a name like Ryan Tannehill, or Dontari Poe, Quinton Coples or Dre Kirkpatrick. Even seemingly safe names like Morris Claiborne, Justin Blackmon and David DeCastro are taking shots from anonymous league sources.

    This final exchange from this week's chat summarizes the fluidity of the 2012 field, and suggests we may be see surprises and trades in volume on Thursday and Friday
