    Preseason is always full of hype, but it's fun anyway.

    --Supposedly Khalil Mack is looking great with comps to Clay Matthews and Von Miller.

    --Teddy Bridgewater looks the best of the rookie QBs so far (no surprise there, imo).

    Watch out for Cleveland RB Terrance West!

    The Browns may end up regretting that contract they used to lure Ben Tate away from Houston this offseason.

    Or if we were going to burn a 3rd in this draft anyway, I would have rather burned it to get up three spaces (to get Donald) or 1 spot (to get Shazier). They may have tried that and couldn't get a trading partners.

    At any rate, Martin is a nice consolation prize.

    No surprise here, but Sammy Watkins sounds pretty amazing so far.

    Yeah, I like Martin. I think Donald is a better player at a position of greater need. But I'm not complaining about what we did in the first round.

    Talk here out of Philly is Jordan Matthews. He looks like the real deal.

    Marvin Lewis says that Darquese Dennard is the "best rookie CB I've ever seen"

    Brandin Cooks is going to be scary with teams ganging up on Jimmy Graham every play... TD capability anywhere on the field

    Nice preseason opener for Cooks! 5 grabs and a score.

    Also WR Kelvin Benjamin made a little splash in his Panthers debut.

    Not a rookie but I read that Dion Jordan has looked "unbelievable."

    Manziel goes 7 of 11 for 63 passing with 27 yards rushing. Would have gone 10 for 11 with veteran receivers, IMO.

    I would hope so since he has a 4 game PED suspension waiting for him

    actually if he was John Smith no one would have thought it was all that.

    But mostly, just looked like a pro.
