Lots of ifs in sbnation mock. That said, I think I'd prefer Matthews to Lee at 28. Bigger, ran faster at combine, has been more durable so far. In that mock, Mack slides to 15 and Barr to 19? Hard to imagine that.

Sanders has to be the play..being a New Yorker and watching Nicks as a Giant. No thanks.

Remember when Bray caught that Dui and we were blasted on radio and in the media.



yet Ray Rice knocking chicks out is swept aside along with a lot more doubling stories.

@a57se  No CB was ever likely to be franchised.  The gravitational pull of Revis' deal has the CB franchise tag value at over $11.8m!

@a57se  Whoever trades for Amendola is taking a risk.  If a team like the Jets trades for Amendola and he keeps getting hurt, then they're right back to square one.


Wouldn't it make more sense to just try and sign Edelman?


I think they should find someone whose skills compliment those of Kerley, not duplicate them.

@a57se  There are teams that need help at QB and Vick is but one of a small handful of available experienced QBs. So it shouldn't be much of a surprise.

@a57se It is possible that these are legitimate sources with different teams that are feeding him this stuff. Schefter is across-the-board better than almost anyone in the NFL. It's weird that you are essentially accusing him of being nothing more than a shill.

@Marvel  Um, remember when David Diehl was bombed in the afternoon and crashed into parked cars in Astoria after leaving a charity outing? 


No, of course not, because the NY Media saw it was a Giants player and swept it under the rug.

@Bent @a57se  Do you see any chance of Revis agreeing to renegiotiate his deal either with TB or in a trade ? 

I don't think TB has any choice but to pay him at least for this year 16mm.

 1st round ?Barr /Ford or 2nd Van Noy /Beasley or other..

@Brendan @a57se 

Seriously dude, it is his responsibility to report what he is told.  Schefter has a pretty good track record.  If you don't like it don't listen.

@bklyndude  No, but wouldn't it just be peachy if he mysteriously agreed to a $5m per year deal following a trade with the Pats definitely NOT receiving $11m under the table at the same time?

@a57se @bklyndude  He has no mobility which in the NFL is a bit of a problem.  You would need five blocks of granite in front of him, maybe six.

bklyndude
bklyndude

@a57se @bklyndude  He also had a QB that was capable of connecting on the deep ball as well as hitting him on his out routes.  Mettenberger has a great arm.  Curious which team jumps up to grab him and where.

bklyndude

@a57se @bklyndude   I'm sure for a college CB, absolutely.  He'll see more of it in the NFL though.  Not saying he won't be able to handle it, but it's something guys like him need to get good at.

@a57se @bklyndude The only thing that I noticed is that he was not pressed up at the LOS once in any of those highlights. He high pointed several balls and was great In the kickoff return game.

@a57se @rstysanchz

Good....hopefully he wants to continue living in New York. 

I watched the Beckham highlights last week and can see why you like him so much.  Combined with his great combine he's competing with Lee to be the third WR to come off the board. I would now prefer him to an Ebron pick by the Jets at 18.

 as many ints eli manning throws i feel like he makes wrs better...steve smith boss and manningham all put up good numbers with eli they leave the giants and you never here about them again thats why id be a little hesistant with signing nicks

@a57se @Brendan  He dropped to 18 in recent mocks?


Typical, there's always someone lowering the Barr.

Brendan

@a57se  Who says he is "falling?" 


What Pat said is 100% true, and Barr wasn't probably ever really a top-10 pick, but in the pre-draft build-up there are 20-30 "top 10" picks.

@a57se  @Brendan posted a comment below to you guys but it probably got lost....


@a57se why don't you think Evans can be a #1?  I'd be happy with Evans, ODB and Cooks but I think Evans is the true #1 while the other two are more offensive weapons.

The thing with being a top 10 pick is that there are only 10. I've heard of at least 20 top 10 picks so far.

@a57se @bklyndude @jaygo @Brendan  You speculated on the Bills drafting Derek Carr,  which I would think is not happening because they drafted Manual last year in the first round. And followed that by saying teams aren't in the habit of disclosing their internal evaluations. 

Unless of course you heard something other than Michael Vicks agent talking to teams about his guy, which it now seems you didn't.

@a57se @jaygo @Brendan I like Schefter but this bus is being driven by Vicks' agents.

If the bus is being driven by Vicks' agents why are the Bills not sold on Manuel ?

@jdb4 He's never been overwhelmingly pro-player, which makes me hesitate to include him in the list of reporters who shouldn't he listened to. He has always struck me as a company man (even he got wrapped up in the Tebow nonsense), but imo he's overall the best guy reporting on the NFL, with the possible exception of La Canfora.

@Marvel  It was also the timing. One was mid/early season(Bray) and the other was offseason/mid-Olympics(Rice). The Jets had also just come off Hard Knocks and Rex was at his highest moment of hype/guarantees, and thus brought a lot of extra press.
