Hooker doesn't make it past 10, even with his surgery.

Oh and No way OJ Howard makes it to the 2nd round but if he does I would trade up for him. He's one of my favorite players. . Howard and Adams so far.... more to come

First, I traded down with the Jets. Got a second and third in that deal.

Then, I traded down with Carolina. Got a second there.

Then, a trade down with Cleveland. Got a second.

Next thing I know, I get Tankserly from Clemson, Taco Charlton, Caleb Brantley, O.J. Howard, and Adoreee Jackson with my first five picks. My third-rounders aren't too bad, either.

This is a pretty good mock.

He has us taking Quincy Wilson in the 2nd. He's been getting a lot of 1st round buzz since the season ended but I think he'll land in the second. He has great size (6'1, 213).

He also has us taking MaHomes in the 3rd. I'd rather take Eddie Jackson, S from Bama, at that point. I would be willing to take a QB until the 4th and would still be a littler hesitant

I think if we do trade for Garoppolo, I think it would be a good idea to draft a WR to grow along side with him. I'm thinking Zay Jones in the 2nd or 3rd.

I am thoroughly impressed. Great runner and amazing touch on his passes. I'll have to look more into him but it's looking like he'd be my guy in this draft.

Watching mike and mike And Watson is on. He said one of the reasons he didn't participate in the senior bowl because he and Hue Jackson had a "really good conversation ". I would speculate that Hue told him they plan on taking in the first.

Another trade back option could be Solomon Thomas

Mayock: I'd be scared to death to take Watson, Kizer, Trubisky in top 10 (via http://thesco.re/theScore_App )

I'd be afraid as well.

In my eye's if you're picking that high you have to be in the top half of the league for it to justify that value. I'm not sure I see a Brady, Brees, Ryan, Rivers, Rodgers, Wilson, Roethlisberger, Stafford, Carr, Mariota, Newton, Luck anywhere.

I see some guy's that might be Alex Smith, Andy Dalton, Eli Manning, maybe a Dak Prescott. IE guy's that can make plays, but is probably not gonna single handedly win games for you. I'd rather take a chance that we could find a semi decent game manager in the 2nd round or later.

HEs #2 on my board. He is going to be a beast. I take him over Allen every time.

You could argue that some of those picks might be a reach that they drop but I still think it's realistic. We'd have to find another trade partner though because I had the cards trade up with the idea that Palmer was retiring. Still have the jets and browns though.

Yeah he's moving up boards. They expect him to run a 4.6 and his explosive numbers to test in Von Miller territory. He's starting to shape up like he'd be worth a Top 10, maybe Top 5 selection.

4.6? That'd be amazing

Palmer may still be playing, but it never hurts to draft the successor a year or two early to groom him, rather than toss him in the deep end.

Yeah but no way they give up extra stuff to move up and get a QB

If we stay at 3 he's my pick. He will produce turnovers for the D.
