Here we go! What will our teams get and what mistakes will they make!?

I am going to say IF the Lions don't trade up to try and grab either Watkins or Evans, at WR, that the Lions will go for Anthony Barr to solidify the LB position. I would prefer that they take a minor gamble and go for Denard, at CB, who played at MSU. I saw 1 mock draft suggest they take Ha Ha Clinton at S. What? To take a Safety in the top 10 is ludicrous. If they do that he better be the next Ronnie Lott!

I would prefer, in order, to get:
1- Watkins WR
2- Evans WR
3- Denard CB
4- Barr LB
5- Justin Gilbert CB
6- Ha Ha Clinton

Also would like to add if the Texans go with Clowney, over Mack, or even taking either T, Robinson or Matthews, they will regret it. He made his reputation off delivering a hit with the crown of his helmet, nearly, and popping a guy's Helmet off. He was a let down in his Senior year and was out of shape. I don't think he'll even measure up to Mario Williams career when they are done!!!

PS- If you want an ILB better get CJ Mosley. NFLdraftscout.com has him top 10 and the next guy a 3rd round projection.

I am NOT a Clowney fan. (What Clemson follower would be?) But I expect him to be drafted 1st. I'd say odds are 3-1 of it.

And I do believe Watkins will do well and fit well in Detroit. (if not aken earlier)

I gotta say, I've been following this year's draft closer than I ever have before. Kinda appropriate, since I was already looking forward to it in week 6 of last season. At last, it's upon us!
I'm still hoping the Vikes get Manziel, but atm it looks like they'll have to trade up to do it, I think he'll be gone in the first 5 picks. Sure, he's got his critics, but IMO he'll be a phenom. If they don't get him, they might take Blake Bortles.

I am just ready for it to be OVER! I am so tired of hearing mock drafts and advice from the "experts." SHUT UP and pick the players already!

Street, your Lions never learn....keep taking WR's in the first round when you should be drafting O-line or defense! That said I don't want to see them getting Watkins! Are they thinking Megatron will be gone soon??

If the Browns don't take Manziel at 4 he could fall. I don't think my Vikes will take him. I would be VERY happy if they took Bortles and he can sit for a year behind Cassel!

Nah Megatron has a LONG term deal. They just want to get him a good #2. Golden Tate is more like a #3 WR.

I don't want them to move up to get him my list is just who I would want at #10, both WR should be gone by then.

Well, you got a shiny new tight end, and the Vikes took Barr, I was a bit surprised. Not sure what to think of that guy, he's a bit of a tweener, but have to trust Zimmer at this point. Bortles picked off early by Jacksonville, AARGH!!

Shocked Mad

Well, now we know. When the Vikings traded the #8 pick to Cleveland, I thought for sure the Browns would take johnny there, and then when they didn't, I was shocked Minn that didn't take him at #9 either. At that point I figured maybe they'd end up with Derek Carr in the 2nd round, but was pleasantly surprised when they moved up to pick Bridgewater. I honestly never gave him much consideration, because he was projected to go #2 or 3 for a long time, I figured they'd have no chance at him. The media gave Vikings B grades on both picks, and that's about right.

I can't believe we continue to go receiver of sorts. I don't care how much of a freak he is I had no interest in him despite his reputation.

We had 2 of the top 3 CBs available, Denard ranked highest, and the best 2 safeties available and we need defense. We have no DBs of great level.

Oh well more offense. Better take either Joyner or Gaines (CBs) in round 2 or this draft is a bust no matter how good Ebron is. If there were no outstabnding DBs left I'd be ok with the pick. With 5 of the 6 best available (Gilbert was ranked #2 CB) DBs there I HATE THIS PICK!

A lot of Clemson fans now become full-fledged Bills fans! Some of us started with CJ Spiller, more of us follow with Sammy Watkins. (Buffalo must have wanted him badly for THAT trade-up.) There are now, so far, 5 former recent Clemson Tigers on The Bills.


GO BILLS!

They gave up too much for him.

Don't think so.
He was a double 21 with a couple of potions on him.
