The latest has the Dolphins acquiring a 7th round pick next year from Atlanta for DE Charles Harris.

AFC East 2020 Draft synopsis

The expectation is that we will finally see some shuffling and serious competition in this division. The biggest reason is the divorce between TOM BRADY and BILL BELICHICK. This leaves the Patriots in uncharted waters in this millennium. They have to find their next championship level QB. Good luck on that one. BUFFALO BILLS       The… Read More »

Sobering post

Some sobering second observations on a good Giants draft … Over the past day or so we have received a lot of emails from Giants’ fans and friends, almost all of which were very positive. As they should have been as the Giants did have a very good draft this past weekend. That comes, however, with the ‘buyer… Read More »

Sobering second observations on a good Giants draft

We have received a few too many celebratort ‘we finally fixed the OL’ emails over the past couple of days that maybe need a response. No, the Giants have not fixed the o-line with their 2020 draft. What they did – for the third time this decade – is address the problems up front. Fact is, we won’t… Read More »

Winners and losers from 2020 draft

ARIZONA: The 2020 draft was a success from the Cardinals perspective even before the first picks started coming off the boards on Thursday after they stole veteran WR DeAndre Hopkins away from Houston for a second-round pick this year and a 4th next year. However, the breaks just kept falling the Cardinals way. They snapped up LB/S Isaiah… Read More »

COVID does number on small schools

COVID does number on small schools … One of the question surrounding this year’s virtual draft was whether NFL teams, which couldn’t work out or interview players as extensively as they had in the past because of limitations imposed of the pandemic, would play it safe and stick with the major programs when making their picks. And the… Read More »

That is a wrap

That IS a wrap … The 2020 draft wrapped up at just after 7 PM this evening when the New York Giants selected former Georgia LB Tae Crowder with the 255th and final pick in tonight’s 7th round. However, there won’t be much of a break for NFL personnel types who are already busy contacting the top undrafted… Read More »

Cincy back on clock

Bengals back on the clock … Cincinnati will be back on the clock when the third and final day of the 2020 draft gets underway at Noon ET later this morning. Teams will have 5 minutes to make their picks in the 4th, 5th and 6th rounds, and four in the 7th. That means the picks will be… Read More »

Wrap day two

That’s a wrap: day two … The second day of the 2020 draft wrapped up just after midnight this evening when the Baltimore Ravens selected former Mississippi State OT Tyre Phillips with the 106th and final pick in tonight’s third round. However, there won’t be much of a break for NFL personnel types who are already busy re-stacking… Read More »

2020 Draft Post-Round One

Looked to me like the most nervous guy in the room, so to speak, was Commish Roger Goodell last night. He didn’t have all the name pronunciations down pat, and he really screwed up his attempt to articulate that Las Vegas would get a mulligan by hosting the Draft in 2022. Interesting variety of Draft Room settings around… Read More »

April 22 draft buzz

Veterans on the block … With the draft now just over 24 hours away and phone lines around the NFL are reportedly starting to really heat up. Washington, for example, continues to get calls about the 2nd pick overall, and reportedly even have at least one solid offer on the table, but it is still not believed to… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts DOLPHINS

As just about everyone knows, at least those interested in the NFL Draft, the Dolphins cleared out their roster before last season started and when the smoke cleared they possessed a league leading 14 Picks. Included in that number were 6 Picks in the Top 70, where starters are supposed to come from each year. I doubt the… Read More »

More pre-draft trade talk

Two days and counting; buzz building … Just two days to go until the picks start coming off the board at the 2020 draft and while this year’s pre-draft period has been unusually quiet, in part because of the unique circumstances of the day, it appears that there may be a lot of teams chatting about possible moves… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts REDSKINS

Once again, it will literally be fascinating to watch the D.C. team operate it’s Draft.  There’s a new Head Coach in town by the name of RON RIVERA. And the team is still operated under Owner DANIEL SNYDER, with BRUCE ALLEN acting as DeFacto GM. However, I have a feeling that Coach RIVERA got himself a contract with… Read More »

We weren’t going to post any additional comments on the Giants 2020 draft – we’ll find out soon enough in four days – but we keep hearing people, including some in the media who should know better, talking about the Giants having to decide whether it will be ‘Simmons or Wirfs’ when they make the 4th pick overall… Read More »

Draft buzz: Sunday, April 19

It’s still not quite what one would expect less than a week out from the draft, but with just 5 days to go until the first picks start coming off the board, there is little buzz starting to build. Here’s the latest we are picking up from around the league, although as always it comes with the proviso… Read More »

Lions – Giants trade talk

Lions, Giants talk moving down … With Cincinnati pretty much locked into LSU QB Joe Burrow with the first pick in the opening round of the 2020 draft on Thursday night, and Washington seemingly intent on taking Ohio State DE Chase Young at #2, it appears that the ‘real’ draft will start with Detroit and the Giants with… Read More »

Pre-draft WR buzz

Pre-draft WR buzz: OBJ on the block?; Broncos, Eagles looking to move up … The NFL has been a little abuzz the past day or so after a report circulated that Cleveland was talking with Minnesota about a trade for Browns enigmatic WR Odell Beckham. There has also been an unconfirmed report that OBJ indeed wants out of… Read More »

2020 Team Mock Drafts SEA HAWKS

It seems rather contradictory to dismiss your projections in advance of making them, but I feel like I have to do that with the Sea Hawks. And I say that out of respect for the seemingly unorthodox way the dynamic duo of JOHN SCHNEIDER and PETE CARROLL work the Draft each year. Despite some raised eyebrows around the… Read More »

Let’s make a deal

Let’s make a deal; or not … With the draft now just two weeks ago, it appears that a little buzz is starting to bubble up. There are reports today, for example, that Detroit, which holds the 3rd pick overall, is actively talking to teams about a possible trade down. Of course, teams talk all the time at… Read More »
