Welp, I can assure you if nobody trades up to #21 you will all be punished by me taking 12 hours. And no I am not kidding.

No, you were late to the party! Therefore, I gave credit to the gm who was there and ready to pick! No screwing around in the early draft rounds

I was just kidding. I like how my board stands. I am just worried about the next few picks. As soon as I am OTC, I will be selecting or trading out. A few deals are on the table, but it is dependent on who is there.

BowlenBall getting a Top 3 player in the draft, regardless of medical issues. Nice job, man! You always do great in the draft. Absolute steal in the middle of one!

He could also be out of the game in two years.

I was driving our girls bball team to state bball in iowa for our semi final game today as I help coach... it took 5 hours instead of the normal 3 because of crap road coditions and sitting at a complete stop on the interstate for an hour for an accident...I got on for 30 seconds while at a stand still to let ssj know to make the pick

The Panthers organization thanks Req for running in the card. We're thrilled to get Star with the 14th pick. If his medicals come back okay, it's the steal of the draft thus far. We hope he doesn't have a heart attack.



STRENGTHS: Boasts all of the physical traits to ultimately rank as one of the better, more versatile defensive linemen in the NFL.

Flashes an explosive burst off the snap. Possesses the lateral agility and flexibility to slip through gaps and ruin plays before they even have a chance to begin.

Strong, heavy hands to control his opponent and possesses the upper and core strength to simply rag-doll offensive linemen. Possesses a thick, classic Polynesian build well suited to anchoring against the run, making him a natural candidate to play inside at nose guard or defensive tackle, as well as a five-technique defensive end.

Has a developing arm-over swim move to break free from blockers when initially slowed at the point of attack. Locates the ball well and gives good effort in lateral pursuit to make the tackle. Has only average arm length but is very strong, showing the ability to grab and pull down ballcarriers seemingly out of his grasp. Has a short-area burst to close on the ball and can generate impressive explosiveness as a hitter.

Seemed to step up his play against top competition, enjoying some of his best moments against USC (and highly regarded senior center Khaled Holmes), as well as state rivals BYU and Utah State.

WEAKNESSES: Inconsistent. Relies too much on his unique physical traits to overcome rather marginal technique. Does not possess an elaborate array of pass rush moves and has just seven sacks in 38 career games at Utah. Too often is stale-mated when his initial burst and power are contained.

Possesses shorter than ideal arms, which contributes to his struggles slipping blocks and his relative lack of passes knocked down at the line of scrimmage (five over his career).

Carries a bit of extra weight around his midsection and played at Snow Junior College in 2008 at more than 350 pounds. Will be slightly older than most prospects (turned 23 in December) after sitting out the 2009 season.

COMPARES TO: Kevin Williams, Minnesota Vikings -- While a touch shorter than the Vikings' former All-Pro, Lotulelei offers a similarly dominant combination of quickness and power and should one day rank among the league's best interior defensive linemen.

Glad you are safe. Hope your team wins it all.

C-c-c-ombo breaker!

To be honest, if Cooper had fallen to #17, he would have been my pick... Jones is a nice consolation prize (two-time consensus all-American OLBs don't grow on trees) but his medical issues are frankly terrifying.

Am dying to know what Mediator12 thinks of my pick....

Jarvis Jones is a beast when healthy and had he not had SS I think I would have taken him at number 5. That said the list of players that lasted in the NFL with SS is pretty low. Chris Samuels was the number three overall pick and played till 32 with it. Terrence Murphy was picked 58th by the Packers and played just three games. Huge risk huge reward player and in this draft might as well take a chance on him.

Bye, bye offensive tackles. Somewhere, Jay Cutler is punching that LT Webb in the gut because the Bears just got rick rolled!!!!

I was hoping to find someone else interested in a trade and try to get more picks to backfill my selections lost to the Goodell Tax, but no takers.

That's who I thought were the BPAs left on the board, Fluker and Trufant.

I considered moving up with Ro, but he didn't wanna go back -- you should have sent me an offer.

Really like both the Fluker and the Trufant pick, they were my other two choices if I couldn't move off of #17. Great job of drafting so far, gentlemen -- the second round is going to be veeeeeeery interesting......

Hey man, if Trufant's your guy we can still work something out.

Trufant for #21 and your 3rd, or if you want to work outside the box here I'd trade Trufant for both of your 2nds (#37 and #53), your 4th, and your 5th.

Trufant wasn't my guy -- the Bengals drafted Kirkpatrick last year in the first. He was in my Top 5 best available players remaining though.
