I think Sandy Eggo had a good draft...

Chargers killed it.

Raiders did pretty well given their situation.

Chiefs had a pretty equivalent draft to us in that it was laughable early on but made some solid selections from the middle towards the end of the draft.

i think SD had a great draft and may have done great things for their defense...

chiefs avg 13ppg last year... defense wasnt the their biggest problem... they addressed oline, but i dont see their ppg raising too significantly...

raiders were handcuffed but did what they could i guess...

SD is the only team i see as competition...

Yeah. Having to face Ingram twice a year isn't going to be pretty. Poe is a gamble. Hopefully, he spends all his paycheck at IHOP and turns into a fat bench turd.

Interesting that Manning is in the division now and between the three of them they drafted 2 defensive backs.

Yeah, but look at the pass rush additions.

Yep. Apparently no one realized they don't need pass rushers to get through our offensive line.

Seriously though, I think it is a pretty good commentary on what people seem to think the blueprint is for stopping Manning.

The chefs did strengthen their oline which is one of the weaker parts of their team, so Pioli did good there...

Chargers had a pretty killer draft. Ingram is nasty, Taylor will get on the field right away and Molk is a steal in the 7th round.

After the lolerz Poe @ 11, it appears the Chefs settled down and had a solid 2nd and 3rd day, sort of like Denver. Wylie will be a pain in the ass to face as punt returner twice a year.

I really know next to nothing about most of the Raiders players. Criner was a productive player at U of A, but a 4.68 40 WR? Al Davis is spinning in his ****ing grave.

As far as immediate impact, San Diego won hands down. KC and Denver fans might eventually say they did a good job, but for the most part just added depth.

Oakland did a great job, considering a prior regime traded away most of their picks.

Chargers, good D players that start day one and make a difference. Much needed for them, bad for the rest of the AFC. Good news though, Norv is still their coach!

I'll say the same thing I say every year:

Almost none of the players drafted will make an impact at any point in their career. At least one of those players we think was terrible will be a pro-bowler, while almost all of the first rounders will be busts.

We won't know until the preseason really.

People saying chiefs had a good draft watched Poes combine but didn't watch Poe in a game. If they did they wouldn't think it was such a great draft.

Ladarius Green is 6'6

Seems everyone is moving to the massive TE.

I believe our biggest is Thomas at 6'4 ⅝

Bad news is I don't think Rivers is going to literally stink up the first 2/3's of the season this go around. Was embarrassing for him last year.

I take it you came with Eliot Coffey? What can you say about him?

Chargers did a good job getting high value with their picks while also targeting positions of need. I wish they would have drafted a new coach, though.

Also, Oakland did excellent considering what they had to work with. I love Burress and Criner. Bad sign for the future that they seemingly did as well as they did without any high picks.

His release is so quick, I don't think pass rush will matter that much. Our sack totals on offense will go down.

Watching Poe sucking oxygen in the second half while Manning runs the no huddle should be fun

Yeah... but among the three of them, they drafted EIGHT Front 7 defenders!

I think they realize that you improve your chances of beating Peyton Manning with a good pass rush, more than with good coverage.
