    Every year the draft seems to have a storyline about a few really crazy, unexpected things happening including some kind of trend sweeping over the first round. Last year it was all the OL that fell while the position was devalued for some reason (I thought we'd get Cordy Glenn, Jon Martin, or Peter Konz, and all 3 of them fell out of the 1st entirely.) In 2011 it was a bunch of QBs that graded out as 2nd rounders going in the high 1st (Gabbert, Locker, Ponder) while those teams passed on a bunch of potential All-Pro pass rushers and WRs. In 2010 it was all the absolutely amazing 2nd round players that teams stupidly passed on (Gronkowski, Daryl Washington, Carlos Dunlap, Sean Lee, etc.)

    I really think this year's storyline is going to be the 1st round being basically completely full of pass-rushing defensive linemen. That's where the talent of this draft is. You have to wonder if the Ravens might get swept up in that and end up taking a surprise pass rusher. I certainly wouldn't be all that surprised or disappointed.
    I think a pass rusher is absolutely a possibility. Maybe it was you who posted this in another thread, but Suggs is going to be 31 years old, 10 years into the league, and coming off of an injury-riddled season. It is highly unlikely that Suggs will ever return to his DPOY form. If he comes remotely close, I'd be very surprised. It is also possible that Kruger will not be retained due to his price tag conflicting with being able to re-sign Flacco. Frankly, I'd rather them re-sign Ellerbe because of how stocked this draft class is with rush linebackers and DE's.

    Secondly, I am totally expecting several teams (KC, Buffalo, Jax, NY Jets, Dallas, Arizona, Oakland, Philly, and possibly even Cleveland) to target a QB early. Just because of the value of a QB, I could see guys like Barkley, Wilson, Geno, Glennon, and Boyd all taken in round 1.

And some of their underclassmen could easily emerge after this year's draft, too.

    I've always liked UGA. Some people might not believe it anymore but the SEC is still tops IMO and I'll always favor players from that conference over pretty much anybody. Especially the overrated Pac-12.
    And they have a cornerback to really keep an eye on: Sanders Commings...6'2" 217lbs.

    How'd they k state and Oregon game end up last night? How'd brown and Jordan play?

    KS schemed away from Brown repeatedly. Generally though he didn't look all that hot. Didn't look terribly impressive in pass coverage but that's not his strength anyway. His unit mate was making quite a few plays though. They also had two DTs that's played well. Unsure of their years though.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Was gonna say something about their DT's. Think Williams was one can't remember his name but the announcers were blathering about him. He made a tackle for a loss in 1st quarter when he stood his ground and wouldn't get juked on Oregon's QB and they said it was his second special play already... Yadda yadda.

    My Boy!!!

    Wisconsin junior C Travis Frederick will forgo his final season of eligibility and enter the 2013 NFL Draft.
    Frederick's departure makes it the second year in a row the Badgers will lose their starting junior center to the NFL. The Badger may make a move to guard int he NFL but is expected to be mentioned among the Draft's top 60 selections.

    Oregon pretty much had their way with running the ball. Arthur Brown, from my perspective, got caught up in traffic a lot.

    Landry Jones is looking sharp. Why has stock on him dropped so much?

    I could see Johnny football being a top qb prospect in a few years. I think with the success of Russell Wilson the height won't hold him back as much.

    Brown looked really small to me. Some small guys look like could hold up in a 3/4, but I didn't come away last night feeling that way.

    I wasn't really impressed to be honest.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Maybe. But one thing to remember about Wilson is first and foremost he has a canon on his shoulder.
