    I went Werner here. I think he'd complement Jones well. I have a feeling this may be a win for other. I don't know who the freakin' Patriots are going to take! :)

    Werner and Taylor make sense. I went with the latter, on account of how bad their secondary was without Talib when it mattered most.

    Imagine pairing Hunter with Brady

    no one defensive player would help that defense more than a play maker would augment that offense
    The legend of Doug Atkins was real:
    “Look, here’s some things I want you to remember,” Skornoski said. “Number 81 is Doug Atkins, he’s 6’9” and he weighs 265 pounds. He said DON’T CUT HIM, and if he falls down, help him up and say nice play, Mr. Atkins.”

    “Well, I (Curry) started to laugh,” Curry said.

    “Kid, this is not a joke, and I’m not kidding you now, because if you cut him, on his knees, the first thing he’s going to do is kill you, and then, he’s going to kill me.”

    Werner are Hunter are both great value. Went with Werner considering Brady can make WRs look better but there's no one on that defense who makes others much better.

    Jamar Taylor is going to be a very good corner for a long time. He's the pick IMO.

    The window is closing, so this pick must be an impact player right away. No WR fits that bill. I personally think that Bjorn is overrated. Would love to have seen Carradine slip one more spot.
    Cherish your children for who they are, not who you'd like them to be.

    Werner. They need the pass rush.

    Werner given how the draft went. Wouldn't mind Hunter Taylor or Woods, but I think both WR's are not monumentally better than anything we might pick in the second. I like Woods on the team, but I just think Werner would have a greater impact. Love the upside of Hunter but a little too much risk compared to Werner.

    I have been somewhat slow on the uptake with all the shifts in the CB rankings. I am only know coming to grips with this DJ Hayden rise. Therefore I don't feel right overdrafting Taylor at this moment.

    I'm not a huge Werner fan. But this is about as far as he can possibly drop.

    Werner.

    Jamar Taylor also makes a ton of sense here for them.
