Seems hard to believe that this is a complete list. Only 3 teams interested in Moreno? Quinn had the same number. Only 2 for Ayers? Nobody at all wanted to work out Seth Olson.

dude, no one is saying it is a complete list.


it's exactly what you called it out to be (and no one was trying to convince you otherwise): it's an incomplete list of somewhat confirmed interest in the players we ended up drafting.

i think in the case of Moreno, most teams were expecting him to be gone early and didn't bother showing any interest. Ayers started only 1 year and teams were probably wary of that and Quinn as a blocking TE is surprising he got the amount of workouts he did. but supposedly the Jets were taking him with the 1st pick on day 2 of the daft so we got him at the right time

Didn't San Diego come out and say if Moreno was still around he was their pick? Or did I misread that somewhere?

I like the fact that the Ravens and Steelers were both interested in Quinn. Both of those teams know how to draft and have been pretty successful adding complimentary pieces to a strong core. I think we'll see the same thing with Quinn. A good compliment to a strong OL.

All speculation but I would guess that they would much rather have Knownshon (get it ) than drafting English.

Yet the Steelers were happy to give us their pick so we could have Quinn...

Mcdaniels outsmarted the Steelers to get Quinn!! duh!!

I like that the Patriots were interested in Baker, makes me feel good about that pickup. Although a UDFA so no risk which is perfect for a low character guy.

Of course they did, they thought he might be available later and of course DEN needed Defensive players..... That is if they wanted him

Interest is simply interest. It can mean anything. It could mean they are trying to overvalue a player or undervalue one by not talking to them. It is such a diverse variable that you can not put any confidence in what it means IMHO. One team drafts from only the players it works out, one team does not draft a single player it works out. The draft becomes extremely fluid at some point and these teams have to adjust.

I find it weird that all those teams looked at those UDFA and didn't give them a look on draft day. Maybe they know something we dont.

Well in counter point we looked at the players they signed as UDFA. Maybe we know something they don't.

Sparklers would have taken Moreno for sure.

McCoy? I've heard/read that he's smallish and can't block, but Westbrook was the same way when he first got drafted and he's now really good at blitz pick up. I think he was their Plan B and they're happy since Maclin fell to them in the 1st.

I'm telling you Mccoy is a good natural runner. Hopefully he's less douchey than ricky watters. Since he's also from harrisburg, pa - playing in philly should be like playing at home for him.
