Pre-Draft Thoughts

-If the Rams are serious about taking Johnny Football second overall, the Jets should get on the phone to check the availability of Sam Bradford. He is not a lost cause and could be a legitimate short-term and long-term answer at the QB position.

-Manziel at #2 and Mike Evans at #13 for the Rams? Very unlikely but crazier things have happened.

-I would call the Seantrel Henderson story a shame (elite recruit, horrible college career on and off the field, quit Combine, failed marijuana test), but maybe he just doesn't like football all that much. This is not meant as a dig at the guy. It's possible that he just doesn't care. Maybe he'll find his passion elsewhere, and that's not a bad thing.

-The extra two weeks of the Draft process will make teams to crazy things, but I can't fathom Khalil Mack being taken ahead of Jadeveon Clowney.

-I can definitely envision a scenario where the top three tackles are gone by time Atlanta comes to the pdium with the sixth pick. If they want one, they should trade up.

-I still think it's funny that the National Football Post, a site which I like a lot, had Ryan Nassib as their top prospect for the 2013 Draft. Whoops. This year they have Blake Bortles as their #41 prospect overall.

-We will look back at this Draft and wonder why Blake Bortles wasn't the no-brainer top QB.

-For those curious, here are my QB rankings:
1. Bortles
2. Manziel
3. Jimmy Garoppolo
4. Connor Shaw
5. Derek Carr

-The stigma against taking a running back has gone too far. Carlos Hyde will win Offensive Rookie of the Year wherever he lands. Jeremy Hill will be a stud too.

-My running back rankings:
1. Hyde
2. Hill
3. Terrance West (Towson)
4. Tre Mason
5. Storm Johnson
