  1. Couple takeaways here:

    1) Timmy Jernigan to the Ravens is a match made in heaven!

    2) Brandin Cooks to the Saints is a match made in heaven!!!

    3) The Jaguars added two quality wrs and Bortles, when Blackmon comes back, add in Shorts and Marcedes Lewis. Just like that, that team is credible. I love Marquise Lee. Polish!

  2. yay for all the draft superbowl winners now we can see who turns into NFL players and who get bounced around the league because they just want some money. At least we get to see what the 2012 draft class has to offer this season.

  3. Doug Whaley loves competition everywhere except QB. And other positions he has drafted.

    Bryce Brown is a fumbling machine who looks great when the hole is huge and lousy when it isn’t. Awesome pickup.

  4. I liked the Raiders draft but I thought it coulda been better. Im not too high on Carr (I hope he turns out well) and thought they shoulda taken WR M.Lee or Jernigan instead. And Gabe Jackson was good but with all the free agents we signed Id be surprised if he gets on the field as a rookie. I woulda got Louis Nix instead.
