They also were very well positioned to move up ahead of Arizona for Michael Floyd.

    Again, I think they panicked, didn't know who to get, couldn't make a better move, and just grabbed a guy. Brockers isn't even a very good fit for their scheme. Just not a good pick at all IMO.

    I guess it's not all that bad, since they can still get a quality OL in round 2.
    I'm not wowed by the Rams, but I don't think they've done that badly. Their 2012 draft will live or die on the backs of their 3 2nd round picks and that early 3rd round pick.

    I read today that Brockers was the guy the Rams were intending to draft at pick at pick 7. If that is true, that's great for them. I just have a hard time thinking that they truly had Brockers as their #7 guy. I mean, if they hadn't traded with Dallas, they could have drafted Claiborne and still had two 2nd rounders and the 2nd pick of round 3. I remember Torrey Smith making that secondary look awful last year and Justin King looking hopeless against him. Claiborne could have filled a huge need and given them a core defensive player, along with Chris Long, around which they could build a defense.

    I am mixed on the pick. I love trading down for 2nd rounders, but I think when there is a player at CB with the type of talent Claiborne has, you can't ignore it in favor of a DT with less impact potential.

    I'd give them a C for the pick of Brockers. I don't think he was a bad pick at 15 in terms of value, but I do think DeCastro would have looked awfully nice alongside Saffold for the next half-decade.

    I think that Rex Ryan was trying to be a genius with Quinton Coples.

    Not sure the Seahawks aren't making their picks from a load of names in a hat. Some baffling picks.

    The Jets do have a GM. It's not like Rex makes the picks.

    With a real GM now making the picks it's a new way to do things for the Raiders. They may actually become boring at these events in the future.
