  1. Interesting class. The guys who have turned out have turned out really well and the rest have busted pretty badly. Only Barr, Bortles and Bridgewater seem to be in that gray area.

  2. Elway would be foolish not sign pick up Roby’s option. Roby plays great when he starts. Talib is a sketchy dude on and off the field, and is on the wrong side of 30, so his skills will start to diminish sooner than later. Roby and Harris should be seen as the future CB tandem in Denver.

  3. If I may make a suggestion, can you put the name of the teams who drafted the player on the list?

  4. If I could make a suggestion, it would be helpful if you posted the deadline teams have until to pick up the option. Also, salary of the option for each player. Thanks!

  5. 1. Fifth year options should be voided if the player is traded.

    2. Supplemental picks should be done away with entirely, or (now that they are tradable) begin at the end of the fifth round. It is a dated system that has no relevance in today’s free agency structure.

    If you don’t know what team drafted those players than you should probably go look at ice skating web site.

    I will definitely do that, but I think you have unrealistic expectations for most football fans.

    Most of us have better things to do than committing every detail of a draft that happened 3 years ago to memory. It would’ve been much easier for PFT to include that information in this article.

    You also shouldn’t necessarily feel like you’re a better football fan because you can remember that stuff. Some would argue that you’re just wasting time and energy by doing that… especially when anyone could just find it on Wikipedia

    Clearly trolling or uninformed. Barr is an absolute stud.

  8. the 2016 NBA hoax notwithstanding–NOBODY outside of the hamlet by the lake thinks a bunch of cast offs led by a mini-George Gervin and an aging good, but in no way great player, came back from 2-0 & 3-1 deficits in a finals by beating a vastly superior team twice on its on floor where they’d not lost half a dozen times all season..but then folks there do believe in Trump and the Easter Bunny–cleveland clearly remain the sports laughingstock of the nation;

    in a league literally driven by quarterbacks they go out and draft the one so pathetically under-prepared even his own coach says he needed another year of college ball;

    at least he won’t have to suffer the look-out blocks of the turnstile OL that nearly got half a dozen QBs killed last season–at least not until the current crop is left for dead by week three;
