Shakur Brown should keep MSU draft streak alive.  Beyond that Naquan Jones is the only other one who might get drafted.

Hoping to finalize my big board over the weekend, so I can get to the draft on Monday.

I don't pay much attention, but I did see something that had Fields dropping below Matt Jones.  These "predictions" are something to pass time.  I'm content to just await the actual thing.  I guess one can bet on the outcome of course.

Would you say Lawrence is as close to a "sure thing" as there normally is?  If the Bungles draft a QB, I know he's nearly always a bust.
I think Lawerence is probably the best QB prospect since Luck or Burrow. And that is true of most Bungle draft picks in general- but I feel like Burrow has a chance of being really special- IF they can protect him. He took an absolute beating last year and got hurt. They need to draft and sign him some OL's and stop making him do so many 7-step drops. Protect him and let him get that ball out quickly- and he'll last a long time and be a stud.

Eeek.  That's gong to push him way down, fair or not.
I think in the past it definitely would've hurt him- but with so many smaller WR's excelling now because of all the rule changes- feel like the height really isn't an issue all that much anymore.

Yes, it's less of an issue for sure.  But 5'7" is reeeeeeally small.

The draft can hurry up and get over with already if only because the clickbait-y comparisons are out of hand. An "expert" compared Mac Jones to Brady. Another compared Zach Wilson to Favre. At this point it’s editorial malpractice.

Do you think this is what the NFL wanted by moving the draft back?

I miss the Saturday-Sunday draft.

The early rounds all day Saturday was great.  They just needed to speed it up.

I think Mac Jones might end up being a very good starter in the League in 2-3 years.

I hope the Vikings take an OT in the first round

Every QB's dream should be being selected in the last third of the 1st round.  Get on a team that has some idea of what it's doing.

Well, yes, but here it's Denver trading up out of the top of the 2nd round to get him

Atlanta wins the "if these were gladiators fighting to the death" contest in this mock.  2 freak monsters, in the best way possible, in Pitts and Collins.
