So far Matt Barkley and Eddie Lacy are a no go in the combine.

Does anyone think Matt gets picked before the 3rd round now? Also with Lacy not running we very well could see a draft with no RB's selected in the first round. Hell QB's as well.

I wish these guys would have had a good showing to get a couple better players to fall to us. Oh well.

Why is Lacy not going? Is it injury or choice. And Barkley still recovering so the most important thing for him is to get a clean medical eval.

He hurt his hamstring preparing for the combine. MRI showed a slight tear and they hope he will be able to run at his pro day.

Bmore he is one of the players I like.

I will be pissed if we spend an early draft pick on a RB.

Not interested in Lacey @ #28. Get a guy like Bell in the third to be a power guy and pair him with Ronnie.

Barkley's shoulder is still healing. His agent and doctors told him not to throw.

Hell no. He's a product of the Alabama OL, just like Ingram (and possibly Richardson, though he has a much better overall skill set than those other two). Also, he offers nothing in the passing game, which is a non-starter in this offense.

NO RB in the first, and definitely not in THIS draft. There will be some amazing Defensive talent sitting there at 28. Just too many good selections available and I would be fine if they moved down 4-5 spots for more early picks. Top 100 is the best I can remember on the defensive side of the ball, and the OL and WR's are stacked as well in the TOP 100.

Good year to have many picks in the first three rounds. F'in Rams

I will be pretty floored if Barkley doesn't end up at the bottom of the first / top of the second. QB's seem to rise more than any other position as draft day nears. Tell me that Tannehill should have been a top 10 pick last year. Was Weeden really worth the number 22 pick? Look at Gabbert the year before.

Qb's always rise before the draft, Barkley should end up as a first round pick once the hype train gets rolling.

I think history shows he will be drafted off his last couple years of performance and potential. I don't know what his current shoulder situation is, but if he is projected to be ready for training camp, it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

It wouldn't surprise me at all to see him end up as a top 10 pick, even top 5 if Andy Reid falls in love with Geno Smith.

There are 2 within trading range that need a franchise QB (Buffalo, Arizona), and won't have a hard time finding trading partners in the top 10 if they get nervous.

I see Mock's with Buffalo taking Ryan Nassib with their 8th pick, im like wtf

i agree with you, this year will be an aberation as far as the amount of top 5 qb's dropping, maybe completely out of the first round....

I could totally see a Brady Quinn type of fall, and without a Cleveland to jump in and pick Barkley. I'm just saying that history propels these Qb's back into the first round. Barkley isn't perfect, but his stats are light years ahead of kids like Tannehill and Gabbert (both top 10 picks).

Barkley will be much better than people think. They're putting him into the same boat as Sanchez and Leinart, which I guess is just human nature. If the Chiefs are smart, they'll take him. Fortunately, they're not. Of course, if he goes to a loser franchise like the Chiefs or the Raiders, he might never reach his potential.

I think Barkley is going to be prolific in the NFL, and run the hurry-up like nobody's business.

Barkley's is smallish compared to the prototype/ideal size. He had a disappointing senior season and is rehabbing a nagging shoulder injury. His arm strength also isn't the greatest. I think it's more likely that he falls to the top of the 3rd than it is he gets taken in the 1st round.

all true but there will be several teams that bring him in to have him go through the motions and have their doctors inspect him..

the old adage of "there is an A ss for every saddle" applies here.. someone will jump on him..

Looks like Dee Milliner, CB -- Alabama has a torn labrum. Will do all drills besides bench press, but will miss Alabama's Pro Day because he will have surgery after the combine. Should be ready for training camp. Wonder if this will impact his stock.

I think by the day of the draft the CB position will change dramatically.
I see it by the day of the draft,
1 Trufant
2 Rhodes
3 Milliner
4 Poyer
5 Banks

I think it could change, but it all depends on how they run. I do not see the list quite that way on tape, but if those guys run better, well that does make a difference in their final grades. Few positions are as impacted by the speed drills and 40 yard as CB.
