    Surprised Jonathan Allen slid so far. Don’t see the Panthers taking him either because they have a ton of d lineman already. Look for Lattimore to fall into the Bills lap to replace Gilmore.

    Browns made out well with Garrett, Peppers, Njoku so far. Hopefully they reach their high ceilings and make the Browns great

      The Browns still have no offense. They need a QB and multiple WR’s. They will get another top 5 pick next year and probably #1 again.

        They have some good young WRs in Coleman and Higgins plus many others that were drafted last year. Next year they will find that franchise QB they need and complete the foundation that this team needs to become a dynasty

        I happen to find the product they put out on the field to be very offensive, actually.

    Bears look more like the Browns with that trade for Trubisky. One of the dumbest moves I’ve seen in a while. All those picks for 1 spot to a team that was not going to take him and they have a QB that is probably going to be better than Trubisky will be. He’s Mark Sanchez 2.0 and not bright… Hard count my unborn child already knows what a Hard count is.

      I think the reason they traded was if they didn’t someone else was going to and the must have really wanted trubitsky for some reason.

        It was what SF sold, they played the Bears against claims that somebody else was dealing with them to get Trubisky at 2. Nobody wanted him there and Cleveland called their bluff and won out in the end and may even have the better QB long term with Kizer.

    After a year where the packers struggled to put bodies on the field and had to convert a wideout to running back we trade out of the first round … Makes sense

      You accumulate more bodies by trading down and acquiring more picks.. not sure I see your point

        Who did you think they were going to take? Forrest Lamp? He’s still on the Board. They did get Evans for a stop-gap year. So they could go Dalvin Cook and then draft a Guard later in round 2.

      This was updated with picks 52-55 at 8:47. It’s now 8:54 and Tabor was just announced. If the next two picks are as listed I’d love to know how PFR got the info

      Ok PFR how did you get picks 53, 54, and 55 some 14 minutes before they were made?

    I must be the only one noticing PFR is posting picks on the site before they are even announced. Must have a real insider

      Picks are sent in to the league and all of the teams are alerted right away so they can adjust their boards, but it’s delayed for TV so they can roll those stupid premade video segments on each kid and let Kiper/Mayock yammer on for a bit.

      But, every person in all of those war rooms know the picks long before the TV announcement. Lots of leakers possible. I saw tweets from one guy who announced 3 picks in one minute last night.

        Exactly. The TV broadcast is far behind the actual selection process. Reporters on social media are usually 3-4 picks ahead of ESPN/NFLN, and we add those updates on this page.

        We don’t tweet them out because we know a lot of readers prefer the suspense. So if you want instant updates, this post is for you.

        You are correct. I would argue it’s more for the pomp and circumstance of the NFL dragging out legends, kids with cancer, military vets, etc to make picks. Twitter is usually 3-5 picks ahead. If you think it’s frustrating on TV, I can assure you it’s much worse in person, dealing with waiting for the networks to get back from commercial.

          I LOVE drafts. Love them. Went to an NHL draft. I lasted 10 picks. The most boring thing ever live. You are just extras for TV.

            I’ve gone to the NFL draft for the past 15 years. It’s a great experience sitting and talking with other football fans. Some years the experience has been awesome, other years not so much. The event has moved away from being about the draft to being about an entertainment event, which personally I don’t like.

      The NFL told the NFL Network and ESPN to agree to not tip off the picks prior to them being announced on stage as it ruins the production.

    I’m supposed to refer to another human being (a grown man, even) as JuJu Smith-Schuster?

    JJ Smith or JJ Schuster. Pick one.

    Anyone else tired of Mayock’s repeated use of the term “frigging” ??

    Terrible ? How about the little girl that announced the Falcon’s pick as coming from ” Yo-Ming”. The little boy next to her could be heard laughing then leaned in and whispered Wyoming !!!!!!!!!
