So many rumors floating around right now it's almost comical.
I checked rotoworld player news feed for the draft earlier and the following were mentioned
Alec Ogletree is a top 10 pick
Kyle Long is a sure first rounder
Shariff Floyd is overrated and made up of media hype
DJ Hayden is the best corner in this draft
Ravens would do backflips if Te'o is there at #32
Justin Hunter is a first rounder
Jamar Taylor is a probable late first rounder
Robert Alford is a possible late first rounder
Darius Slay is a possible first rounder
....only so many first round picks available.
Draft well and then coach em up!
Find the next Ronnie Lott & Justin Smith & Jerry Rice & Deion Sanders
Manuel is going 1st round, he has been invited to the draft. Will go higher than people think, possibly as high as Arizona. The OTs will be gone by then and drafting an OG, safety, etc isn't going to help much at all when you need a QB. We've seen it before and it'll happen again.
One guy I'm surprised about the lack of rumors is Margus Hunt. I hear person after person, from.draft guru guys, to front office guys, to coaches, to just media guys saying they really like him as their sleeper in the early second. I have even heard several people compare his pass batting, and.kick blocking to JJ Watt. It's like nobody wants to kention the guy because everyone wants him to fall to them. Kind of the opposite of some of the negative rumors we see so often this time of year.
I really wouldn't be surprised to see him go in the mid first at this point, which seems kind of funny that nobody talks about him at all.
