NFL Draft: Did Your Team Make the Right Pick?

The NFL Draft was underway Thursday night. The annual spectacle and make-or-break night for many football teams saw some predictable moves, unexpected drops in rounds, and even some humor. While the New York City crowd was respectful most of the night, they did give NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a bit of a hard time with some fun “What?!” chants in between his pauses. Maybe they thought it was the WWE Draft.

Of course as many predicted days leading up to Thursday night, the top two quarterbacks were selected No. 1 and 2. Andrew Luck was selected first by the Indianapolis Colts and Robert Griffin III was selected as No. 2 overall by the Washington Redskins. After failing to sign any relevant free agent, the Miami Dolphins drafted Texas A & M QB Ryan Tannehill, who the general manager claims has as much talent as the first two picks. Guess we'll see about that.

The Cleveland Browns surprised their fans by drafting Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden -- going against their word when they told current starter Colt McCoy they weren't drafting that position in round one.

The steal of the draft may have been Syracuse defensive end Chandler Jones, who fell down a few spots from where he was predicted to go (the New England Patriots selected him 21st overall.) At 6'5” with great reach, Jones seems to have the physical tools his famous brothers, Baltimore Ravens player Arthur Jones and UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones, possess. That all being said, did your team make the right pick? Or is the best to come in the later rounds?

    We talked a few months ago about the qb situation and Manning. What are the chances the Texans take one of the later round qbs like a Osweiler as a project to groom behind Shaub?

    Don't worry about Wrs. You do still have Andre for awhile longer which means you need a compliment and not an heir apparent. Having missed out on Blackmon and Floyd I've been reading up again on the remaing WRs. A lot of interesting second round options.

    I'm not too concerned. They're going to install Fishers system and he has a full compliment of other coashes to get it done. And one of the guys on the staff has DC experience. Likely they'll give that guy the game day play calling duty.

    Thing about the Rams is that I'm not too worried about the defense. One thing under Spagnuolo and all the cock ups he had, he did get some guys to play. There are strengths there. Even Brockers will make our front line scary and open JL55 up more.

    My concern is the offense which was about as bad an offense as I've ever seen last year. We need weapons and line help and running depth.

    LOL, yea they don't waste any time do they. I saw on the news, people had them on last nigh at draft parties! He has got a lot of hype and expectation to live up to. Not sure which one has it worse RG3 or Luck filling Manning's shoes. I hope they are up to it! ;)

    I live very near Waco (home of Baylor) and I remember the Waco mall having a LOT of Baylor Heisman Jerseys. Not long after that, I saw RG3 in a local restaurant and was literally 10 feet away from him. I ALMOST went and got a picture with him but so many people already were, so I just decided not to because he looked like he just wanted to eat! I definitely regret it now. But I'm sure he's going to do wonderful with the Redskins!

    I'm a Baylor fan first....and now a Redskin fan....RG3 was the right pick...He works hard,he is very smart, very much a leader, has amazing accuracy,and can out run almost anyone.


    So after going to watch several Baylor games over the last 3 yrs....some of the very best

    Football games Ive ever been to.....

    I wish the best to the Redskins


    I was at this game...where RG3 ripped the heart out of #5 rated oklahoma with less than 1 minute and no time outs...
