    DeAndre Hopkins' hands are so strong.

    Players taken in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th round are usually more than serviceable. You don't need to reach when talent can be find later.

    That is true, and you see teams like Cleveland looking to trade away the last 2 QBs they drafted, and neither of them has had a shot. Always changing everything, never getting good at anything.

    The Ravens seem to be content to have their basic system, plug guys in, adapt as needed, but I think in general, draft to their system with the idea that BPA could dictate some changes. They've flexed between 3-4 and 4-3 but without having to make radical changes in the process. They've alwys tried to maintain flexibility to be able to adapt, but within the skill sets of their personnel, as oppposed to bad teams that just trash the whole thing every couple years and start all over again.

    The more stable teams seem to be the most successful over time in general (except Cincy with Marvin....).

    @SI_PeterKing: RT @nfldraftscout: Text I received from a scout this morning: Matt Barkley will not get past the Arizona #Cardinals at No. 7 overall.

    Btw The NFL.COM coverage of the combine is MUCH better coverage because of Greg Cossell's insight along with Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks

    Austin just put up a blazing hand timed 4.25/40. Not sure what the electronic reading is, yet.

    If we can't draft him because he's already been taken than how is it bad to wish that he will be our pick?

    If he is good enough to be drafted 1-31 than he is for sure good enough to be our pick at 32.

    Pathetic. The guy won't even throw at the Combine. I heard there was owner pressure for them to draft a QB when Arians was hired. I even took him in round 2 in our forum mock draft. I bet this really does happen.

    He doesn't fit our system. It would have to change.
