    Packers today employing the "shotgun theory" to their OLine. Just draft as many as you can and at least one should be able to replace their Center.

    So one of those linemen was a Green Bay Native, via Wisconsin, Cole Van Lanen. Who I only bring up because he had a rather hilarious story where when the Packers called him to tell him they were gonna draft him, his phone actually flagged the call as "potentially a scam."

    Seems to be the strategy the Raiders and Broncos are using for DBs too.

    7 of 10 picks were on defense. All but 1 free agent signings were on defense and the only players they brought in on offense were Bridgewater and a 3rd string RB despite having one of the worst offenses last year. It really feels like they are throwing in the towel for this season.

    Looks like the Rams did similar taking 3 WRs, after tiny tutu they got a couple real big dudes.

    Don't see much to get excited about with the Saints drafting Ian Book, but maybe he'll surprise me. Its certainly a good fit for him to end up in New Orleans.

    We've also needed depth in the secondary for a couple of seasons, bad injuries have meant we played absolute garbage.

    This was about getting Oline and secondary players for us, and that was huge.

    Well this Rodgers mess has grown into quite the circular firing squad now. (Terminology perhaps in bad taste tonight.)

    Rodgers says he wants Gutekunst (the GM) fired.

    LaFleur washes his hands of the whole Jordan Love draft claiming he was never told the pick until it happened.

    This is a lot of rumors for him to just end up becoming the full time Jeopardy host.

    I love glancing at 'draft grades' for teams, one on the ringer rates all 32 teams, only 9 of them are C or worse and the only D is on Houston who got dinged for not having an 'impact player' they drafted yet they don't know the status of Watson and drafted a QB. They must do these draft grades on a curve. Have some balls say a team got an F for reaching if your 'draft board' had players taken too early.

    Haha one fun idea I saw on reddit was people taking a look at the first round draft and treating it as if it was a mock draft someone posted and rating it. Funny comments about players falling too far, not being in the first round and other great tidbits.

    I'm happy with the Bills draft.

    It's not like they were going to get the next Bo Jackson for their offense. That and the inability to pressure the QB did not help their secondary last year.

    We've just got to make sure the week he's on is the highest ratings week they've ever had.

    Here’s a summary of every article about the Patriots drafting Mac Jones:

    Obviously, we can’t compare him to the greatest qb of all time but (proceeds to compare him to the greatest of all time).

    Cowboys aren't picking up Vender Esch's 5th year option. That makes them picking LB make more sense for a backup plan if they can't get a deal done.

    I don't see any similarities between Mac Jones and Steve Young personally, but I'm sure they can big deep enough to find something.

    Grube turn away. Ja'waun James already out for the upcoming season with an Achilles injury he suffered working out.

    I just assumed he wasn't going to play. Better it happens now so whoever was going to end up starting at RT anyway gets all the reps.

    He is going to have something like 60 snaps played over 3 years. This might have been Elway's best contract.

    Haven;t seen anyone mention it yet in here, but during draft coverage they announced that the schedule will release in exactly 1 week, on the 12th. Should be fun.

    There's an outside chance that the Patriots open the season at Tampa Bay, against the defending champs and Tom Brady.
