Smart teams vs dumb teams

Last night you could easily see who they were. The cowboys and the jets probably being the most visible. The panthers on the other hand showed they were a very smart team helmed by taking the best dt on the board that fits out scheme perfectly and fills up a huge need position. I think we out in a new era and it's clear as day to see this franchise is already headed in the right direction. Although our pick kinda got overshadowed by Vikings and rams having a million first picks I think ours was one of the top picks homerism aside. Winners and losers on round one?

I thought the Vikings did well.

Had a lot of ammunition, but stayed pat and used their slots effectively.

Vikings get an A+ (although think Hunter is better than Patterson for them)

Jets get a D (they get a worse corner in exchange of Revis) and missed on the best DT on the board

Bills get a ? three years from now they are going to look like geniuses, or razorcakes

Screw the Pats

Panthers A (got lucky catching a falling Star)

I think the bills could have waited and still gotten Manuel

The Cam Newton's, Russell Wilson's, and RGIII's of the NFL really pressured Buffalo into making that pick. Remember that botched conference call with Mark Dominik and Buddy Nix? Nix was adamant about finding a QB this offseason. I just think he jumped on a guy that was graded as a late 2nd/early 3rd round pick....could really burn them.

They easily could have waited and still ended up with at least Barkley smith Manuel or nassib. They fuged up on that one

I think EJ will pan out.. hes smart/athletic enough to progress into a quality starter.

why are the jets stupid?

from a talent stand point they got two good players. Milliner's injury history is over blown and half this board would have been happy with richardson if Star had gone where he should have. Yeah they probably shouldn't have traded Revis in the first place but the owner wanted him gone and that decision has to be viewed as a sunk cost at this point.

The Cowboys traded down and upgraded their center position, and if you've ever watched a cowboys game you know snapping the ball is a massive problem for them.

The worst draft picks of the night, besides the Bills taking EJ Manuel, were the Saints and 49ers.

The niners didn't need to trade up for Eric fuging Reid. He had the highest catch percentage against of all draft eligible safeties this year. I don't really care how much Harbaugh wanted him to come to Stanford. That was a reach for a player with very limited range and tackling issues.

The Saints poo the bed the worst. Vaccaro fuging sucks. They basically just got a Roman Harper clone with a massive upgrade at DT sitting right in front of them.

It was actually a pretty good draft if you hate other teams in the NFC South, since the Falcons traded up and passed on Floyd as well. They still don't have pass rush.

Nothing has changed as far as drafting in the first round goes. We all see Star as the guy. The true test begins tonight. Will we finally draft a starter after the first round?

I would have given them an A+ until they traded 4 picks to get patterson
