Chris Mortenson on at 5.

If anyone is interested.

I'm leaving the office @ 4, so won't be able to synthesize any information. For anyone who doesn't live in the area, you can stream at WFNZ.com

so it was apparently on at 4 ish to 4:15ish, cause I tuned in just now to him leaving.

They are considering all options based on the end commentary... they are considering trading down... no question he is considering Cam Newton... but they ARE concerned about him (I wish I'd heard what that means, grr)... Commentators think it could be a smoke screen that he was concerned about Newton (???)... Sounds like Rivera is prepared to make the pick but it's still up in the air...

I have no idea why they say what they did, because I missed the actual interview, just caught the commentary. SEE LAST POST FOR TRANSCRIBED TEXT

The only thing of note that was said, in my opinion, is that they heaven't even narrowed it down beyond 8 players yet. So they do not know who they are going to pick.

He also made an interesting point about how teams don't wast time researching players that they don't think will be available to them. That explains Pickles.

i don't buy it at all...the draft is 2 weeks away...no way they haven't at least gotten it to 3-4 players...i think they know who they wanna take...just won't say anything to keep teams guessing

what 8 players says is they are seriously trying to trade down, IMO. As Hurney said, they have an idea of a draft order in their head but they're keeping everything open.

possibly, but when he says things like we wanna get a player that has an impact on the whole organization both on and off the field...that just screams QB to me

He really didn't say much about Cam and actually tilted the conversation to Blaine before anyone else mentioned him. But only to say that the concerns they have for Cam are the same that they have for Blaine.

Interesting, would like to hear it. So it was purely about the offense then. Not surprising really, but interesting. Maybe Gabbert isn't quite as out of it before as some thought. NEver know I guess.
