    Big fan of Brett Smith, I think he could slide into the first round when all is said and done

    Is that because of previous QB failings?:lol:

    Manziel should have stayed in college for another year at least, he's not ready and he's tiny.
    And I'm a massive fan.

    Manziel imo will be a sensation in the NFL, his intangibles are off the charts.

    I see him as Tim Tebow II

    Great at the collegiate level but will he be able to do it against more structured, more athletic and most importantly... More knowledgable defences.

    I hope I'm wrong... And I'd love it even more if the Raiders made him our guy... And he brings us back to the promise land...

    But I'm realistic... Unless Bridgewater falls down to us... There's other areas the raiders will look to fill.

    The common consensus among Raiders fans I've seen was that we're looking at maybe a OT... But saw an interesting column from a journo who thought they would go for a pass rusher who could offer them some flexibility with they're 3-4 formations.

    I wonder if Clowney will still be on the board... If the Manziel hype starts to gather momentum... You might see him push Clowney down...

    Where does everyone think Clowney ends up?

    If someone can straighten him out, Colt Lyerla will be a huge get for any team. Dude is a beast. Just a loose cannon.

    Sounds like a future NE Patriot... troublesome TE's have never caused them harm before

    As for Manziel, i think he'll be a star in the NFL... I doubt his style of player (same with RG3) can last long enough in the NFL before getting Mike Vick syndrome, to win a SB, but for the years those guys are healthy, they will set teams alight.

    Im just really pleased the Eagles are no longer in this shit fight, Nick Foles is the business

    He can throw much, much better than Tebow but yeah it's the same sort of mentality and media circus.

    It depends who takes him, Cleveland wants him...but you know that place is a graveyard for good players.

    Chandler Bing Jr aka Mel Kiper just did his first mock draft...

    Johnny Football was number 1 apparently....

    I reckon the Raiders or the Browns are gonna get a steal with all this Johnny Football hype...

    Rams should grab Clowney... He would be the icing on the cake for there defence.

    If Jags miss out on Bridgewater or Johnny Football, i can see them passing on any other QBs in round 1 and wait til the second round to grab one

    Well apparently in Mel Kipers draft Bridgewater goes 8th... Jags pick up Clowney from memory.

    I'll put up his draft in a sec...

    I can't believe that Oakland would pass on Bridgewater...

    He'll be a top 5 pick, too many QB needy teams and he's one if not the best QB in the draft

    A lot of people are high quarterback Jimmy Garopollo. He is out of Tony Romos old college Eastern Illinois. He put up some unbelievable numbers this season. Well worth keeping an eye omn.

    Well Manziel is a texas boy, and I think Keenum and Manziel played in similiar schemes in College.

    Was just reading about him, Browns fans are looking at him but perhaps Cowboys could nap him (we really need to start looking at a future QB).
    FWIW I think Manziel goes to Texans, Jacksonville takes Bridgewater and the Browns grab Bortles.
    There's a chance that Bridgewater falls to Browns because Bortles is from Florida but I don't think so.

    Also I'm interested in McCarron, I believe he's a bit more capable than McElroy (Bama's last QB) think whoever drafts him (likely in 2nd-3rd) might get a steal.
