    That would be a surprise pick for many but I can see the Eagles going after a true every-down feature back like Stewart. They haven't had one in quite some time. That would free up Westbrook to do a lot more for their offense, which is good for the Eagles and bad for everyone else.


    I could live with that. I think he will be a solid CB.


    Not sure about this one. The Chargers could use a backup, but RB isn't that pressing of an issue to draft one in the first round, especially with the draft class being so deep. I could see them addressing the position in rounds 3-5 though.

    What do you think this trade would entail or what would the Cowboys be gaining? I think this pick goes to the Lions or maybe even the Bengals for a WR.

    O.K., you're now the 2nd person who I have to take away your MOCK PRIVELAGES!

    The Chargers do not have a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th round pick, so they have that ONE PICK in round 1 and dont' pick again till round 5, now I ask you, WHY ON GODS EARTH would you take a R.B. with your only pick in the 1st 4 rounds when you already have the league's best R.B.???????????

    SO, your mock privelages have now been officially revoked along with DaBoys4Life's.

    I pretty much took a best available player approach. As well, the Bolts took Turner in the second round previously to back up LT. Also, LT is not getting any younger and does have some miles on him.



    What do you think this trade would entail or what would the Cowboys be gaining? I think this pick goes to the Lions or maybe even the Bengals for a WR.

    My first guess would be their middle second and first third. This is a really prime spot for jumpin ahead in line to get one of the most game-ready QBs in this draft. He also fits their system particularily well. The Cowboys could then obtain the best RB/WR with thier first pick in the second (Jamaal Charles?), and the opposite with the second (Early Doucet?). This would also give us a high third to go along with our low third. Continued wild speculation might reasonably put Tyrell Thomas (SS) and Charles Godfrey (CB) in our hands. We could also sub one of these picks for a nice DT.

    This would leave us with the first 3 rounds picks' as:

    1. Antoine Cason
    2a. Jamaal Charles (or Chris Johnson/Ray Rice?)
    2b. Early Doucet (or Donnie Avery/Andre Caldwell)
    3a. Tyrell Thomas (he has started rising fast the last couple of days though)
    3b. Charles Godfrey

    Dajuan Morgan, Chilo Rashal, Jordy Nelson, Matt Forte, Eddie Royal, etc... will also fall into the second and third rounds and would also be nice additions that would make our squad. It would also give us considerable freedom to pick up a project QB in the 4th (Josh Johnson?)

    Just kicking it around :)

    That is a very interesting pick. The guys on NFL Network were just commenting on that a few minutes ago. They reported that the Chargers could be looking at RB at 27 to replace Michael Turner and be the new backup for LT. Since LT is now over 30, this RB could be the backup that will eventually replace LT as the starter. Nice job!

    I'll say it again!
    The Chargers do not have 2nd, 3rd, or 4th round picks, so NO WAY will they use their only pick in the 1st 4 rounds on a R.B. when they already have the league's best!
