    I can’t seem to find the New England Patriots anywhere in the first round…

    How will ted Thompson screw this one up?

    Patriots don’t have a pick in the first round because of deflategate.

    By virtue of advancing to the divisional round, further than the Vikings were able to advance, the Packers will be drafting behind the Vikings, again. That’s the way it should be. This is what parity is all about. This will help the Vikings get better and someday maybe become as good as the Packers. It hasn’t happened yet, but parity in the draft gives you a pretty accurate accounting of how good teams actually are. Packers at #5 bodes well for next year.

    It’s ridiculous the Pat’s don’t have a first round pick.

  6. TebowedOutOfThePostSeasonAndNeverToReturn says: Feb 7, 2016 10:54 PM

    The Jets’ and refs’ gifts to playoff unqualified Pittsburgh weren’t enough to help the Steelers grab any legit PO wins, but it sure pushed them waaaaaaaay back in the draft. LOL.

    strongisland36- The Pats should not have a first rd pick! its far from ridiculous, NO one or TEAM is greater than the league. The League was within their right to impose that penalty and the owner took the penalty as he should have based on documents from their other cheating circumstances. His team has benefitted more than any other team in professional sports history from pushing the limits of the rules and integrity of the game. NOT JUST under inflated balls but flat out unsportsmanlike cheating over many years!

    Which is why, I suppose, the Vikings are the Division Champions.

    Is 30 too low to find a starting caliber RT? Cause the Panthers need one desperately. OL along with WR came up mighty small for them in the big game.

  10. GrantRodgers says: Feb 7, 2016 11:05 PM

    Wonder which torn ACL/MCL/PCL Trent Baalke will pick at #7.

    Never said they weren’t. They earned it. Good job. But it doesn’t mean the Vikings have leapfrogged the Packers. Nobody thinks that. Nobody.

    Is this accurate picks 10 -12 My Saints in every draft order is 12 but here has them 10th ???

    While the Vikings, the third youngest team in the NFL are breathing down the Packers neck (kind of crazy being they won the Division), in taking over the North for the next decade, the Packers last several gasps of possibly winning anything will not happen as they just never will be good enough in their dwindling years to beat the Seahawks or Panthers. Oh, BTW, Vegas thinks thats,just look at the odds.

    Seattle Seahawks 9/2
    Carolina Panthers 5/1
    Green Bay Packers 6/1
    Arizona Cardinals 7/1
    Dallas Cowboys 10/1
    Minnesota Vikings 12/1

    No it’s not. Lots of good tackles coming out this year.

    NE can fix their o-line in 1st round… oh wait nevermind they’re despicable cheaters.

  16. crownofthehelmet says: Feb 7, 2016 11:33 PM

    A mistake was made in this order, but to our favor. Steelers should be drafting 30, as they clearly were the 2nd best team in the league, but grab the 25 spot. Colbert is a genius.

  17. whodatnhollywood says: Feb 7, 2016 11:44 PM

    Dear Saints, did you see that Broncos defense in the Super Bowl tonight? And the Carolina D also? Well, that means NO MORE OFFENSIVE players with the first round pick. Enough already!

    Just Say No To “O!” And YES to the D!

  18. stellarperformance says: Feb 7, 2016 11:57 PM

    Packers are younger on than the Vikings, and usually are. How does that equate to “dwindling years?”

    Please cite examples of “other cheating circumstances”.

    Really? The most recent SB winner won 2 SB’s cheating the salary cap both years. Fined, lost draft picks too. Using your method of proof this years SB winning QB could very well be guilty of HGH use. So, tell us, no, list all the proven history of pushing the limits of the rules(which, by the way means they were still technically, you know, within the rules) that the Patriots did that other teams haven’t also been guilty of. I’ll wait.

    It was a cool ceremony having former sb mvp’s present, but it was wierd seeing A-Rodg at a playoff game and not seeing a chokejob meltdown.

    Funny…..

    All the cam haters talk about class and sportsmanship; but then they support bellichek at every turn.

    I love every time I meet one of you folks who suckles on Roger Goodell’s information teat only. It is so easy to ask questions like how did you expect the pressure to behave and why? What other instances of cheating? What was spygate? Why did Goodell lie in writing in his appeal decision? You are just like them and read only the headlines. I understand, independent thinking is hard and the cheating narrative feeds your primal hate-fueled adrenaline rush. It’s too bad I can’t meet you in person to demonstrate your own ignorance to you.

    Now that the NFL off season has officially begun it is time for young men in Minnesota to dream of leading their team to a Superbowl victor…..

    Oh never mind.

    ONLY 80 days til TBSB….(the Browns Super Bowl) the next Draft we screw up

  27. phelbin says: Feb 8, 2016 3:32 PM

    My reaction to Trent Baalke’s first round pick every year is, “Who?” I see no reason this year will be any different.

  28. iowahbr says: Feb 9, 2016 7:45 AM

    hard to tell this is the Bears comment site.

  29. ashhole420 says: Feb 9, 2016 12:52 PM

    I think if D.C. stays put at 21 and go BPA then Scot takes TCU WR Josh Doctson. He is gonna be a STAR with the right QB and developing with “Captain America” Kirk Cousins is a really great spot to be in.

    Kirk “Captain America” Cousins is gonna develop alot over the next 2 seasons and because he is Pretty much a film and study freak i can only see him getting alot better!!

    Also Josh “The Executioner” Doctson(he will is a really tall and stronger WR with really long arms, great hands, makes his QB look alot better with his catching even wild off target passes and making a quick strike big play hence the Executioner goes to town” and teaming up with the other soon to be really great pass catcher’s Desean”Speed Kills” Jackson, Jordan ” The Executioner” Reed, Either Garcon or a above average #1 or good #2 in Free agency or trade( which is the one i hope happen garcon makes too much for him contribution!), hopefully a great big play pass-catching Rb like Matt Forte in free agency to go along with Pierre Thomas.

    Doctson with that talent around him, a good developing qb, and a Great passing offensive system like what Gruden runs and he is gonna be up for Rookie of the year

  30. athwartships says: Feb 9, 2016 5:14 PM

    Seattle will likely trade their first round pick for a couple 3rd rounds….Maybe NE has a couple they want to trade.

  31. siuleno says: Feb 9, 2016 5:59 PM

    lol @ ariana. NONE of your GMs have EVER won ANYTHING. over here talking about a Super Bowl winning GM. lmao. the troll is thirsty.

  32. eljefedelmundo says: Feb 9, 2016 6:49 PM

    How are the Panthers going to draft a clutch QB when they pick 30th?

    Tough times in towel land..

  33. eljefedelmundo says: Feb 9, 2016 7:16 PM

    You mixed up 10 and 12. Maybe more

  34. mototax says: Feb 10, 2016 12:04 PM

    I wonder which overrated defensive player Rick Smith will draft for the Texans this year.

  35. zeke2517 says: Feb 10, 2016 8:32 PM

    “It’s ridiculous the Pat’s don’t have a first round pick.”

    On what planet do you spend most of your time?

  36. iamjoshgordonswastedlife says: Feb 12, 2016 9:16 PM

    I have to meekly SMH seeing the #15 pick… Here’s hoping that this former STL Rams fan hears the name of some one legged punter from Translyvania geting selected by the LA scRAMS.
    Stan Krapke, You give those fickle fans out there even three years of what you peddled through STL for the past decade and they’ll turn the coliseum into flea market on Sunday afternoons during football season. Just sayin’

  37. lscottman3 says: Feb 16, 2016 1:03 PM

    just waiting for Godell to screw another team this year, and wait for you sanctimonious fools lose your minds.

    Dallas
    Redskins
    New Orleans
    Patriots

    as the owners of losing teams tell him to screw over a winning team to help their lowly losers.

    i’m guessing this year will be another AFC team, maybe Cincinnati?
