    Who got a steal?

    Every year we get this thread and I was waiting this year, but a week later it's not here. What gives? Who do you think got a steal?

    The Eagles got the best QB in the draft in the fourth round.

    Jesse Williams in the fifth round to the Seahawks was pretty good.

    I thought Richardson a dn Patteron were the next players in the draft, so I give kudos to the Jets and Vikings.

    The Cowboys did well with the WR from Baylor, Terrence Williams in the 3rd.

    I think the Bears did well with the lineback from Rutgers, Khassim Greene in the 4th, IINM.

    The Eagle's best pick was the TE from Stanford in the 2nd.

    So long as he's healthy, Chargers getting Keenan Allen in the 3rd will go down as the steal of this draft when all is said and done.

    No love for Marcus Lattimore or Quinton Patton both 4th round picks?
    --Colorado Avalanche
    --San Francisco 49ers
    --Washington Nationals
    --San Antonio Spurs

    -My two favourite teams are the SF 49ers and whoever is playing the Seahawks.

    The Bills got the steal of the draft: UDFA Da'rick Rogers. Of course, they also made one of the worst picks of the draft in the first round.

    Ryan Swope as a 6th to the Cardinals.

    For the Steelers, just because of his physicality and the ability of DB coach Carnell Lake, CB Terry Hawthorne could turn out to be quite good.

    Patton is a better prospect than Jenkins from last year IMO and I love that SF is giving that Okoye kid a shot. I don't care how raw he is, you simply don't find that level of talent in the 7th round or as a UDFA.

    SF had a few good ones already mentioned.

    I agree that T-Will to dallas is nice.

    I love Jesse Williams in round 5.

    It's hard not to love Star at 14 (a minor steal) and Floyd at 23 (HTF did that happen?).

    I never got why Swope fell that far. Great size,speed and production combo you would think. He had concussion issues, but 6th round is a big drop for just that. Agreed on Hawthorne being intriguing as well.

    Love Star at 14, perfect place for him to go. Floyd I think was a fit issue, just bad luck. He was never a top 3 guy though IMO, more of a 8-12 guy. Still a steal though.

    Connor Vernon... Undrafted Free Agent.... Raiders.

    Zac Stacy in the 5th round to the Rams...

    Also really like RB Gillislee who Miami took late... As a Nole it pains me to say, but the kid looked like the goods in all the Gator games I got a chance to watch...

    I think they both ended up in really good fits.

    The Panthers run D will be a lot better.

    I still think Te'o is as good a prospect of Keuchly was. Neither is great in coverage but both are very good in pursuit. So I guess I'd say he was a steal. And playing in a 3-4 will only better him.

    The biggest reason that Kuechly rose last year is because he is not only good, but elite in coverage. You're off there.

    Agreed on the fits with FLoyd and Star though. Richardson is a perfect fit in NY too. Rex will make him a star.

    I figured he'd may even go in the 2nd round after that 4.34 40 time. He ran away from people in the SEC, and can block.
