More than likely, imo.

There will be lots of value in their problem areas at both selections and I think falling short AGAIN while Tom gets older and the window shuts a little further has Beli anxious.

I think the Rams might take Blackmon over Richardson... what I can't figure out is where Richardson would then fall to.

I can't see the Browns not take Richardson, if he does fall I think both the Bucs and Dolphins are likely destinations.

He's certainly the better player but it's a passing league.

That is true, just doesn't seem to be in the Browns best interest to get Tannehill at number 4, and in terms of offensive playmakers I would say Richardson is quite a bit better than Blackmon or Floyd.

They haven't got a decent QB though. They'll need a stud back there to beat the 8 man fronts.

I mean no offense, but the idea that Riley Reiff would tumble all the way down to 13 seems a real stretch to me. Damned well thought out trade scenarios though. Worthy at 25 has the smell of bust to me, but what are the Broncos supposed to do? We have to do something about that D-line, but the draft seems deep in DT's this year, so my hope is we take the best athlete approach at 25, then DT's & DB's until the cows come home (Osweiler a real possibility in round three or 4 however)

I agree that Reiff is a solid prospect, but it was only a couple years ago that Bryan Bulaga fell from a Top 10ish prospect to the tail end of the first round. The reasoning for that fall was the Iowa coaching having the prospects already maxxed out on potential, due to exceptional technique work. Thus, an athletically limited Bulaga, with short arms, was a tremendous college left tackle, but only projected to OG or RT in the NFL. Reiff is a mirror image of Bulaga.

The reasons I believe Reiff does not fall as far this draft is because he's a bit more athletic, the rookie pay scale makes drafting a RT high more feasible, and Bulaga has had excellent success as Green Bay's RT. He fell to #13 because I felt that Arizona was the first team that desperately needed a starting RT, and without a selection in the 2nd Round, they had to reach for the position at 13. Buffalo, the only other team in consideration, recently gave RT Erik Pears a decent extension at starter's money, and has a hole at LT, a position I'm not sure Reiff can play in the NFL.

Anyway, right or wrong, that was my thought process. And thanks for the nod for the trades. There's always a handful and I tried to figure out some that made some degree of sense. I also agree with you on BPA as the ideal approach, and am very interested to see if there's fire behind on all the smoke with Osweiler in the late 2nd or 3rd round.

Absolutely. It's just my opinion, but I think Worthy is the superior prospect. I'm not sure he'll actually make it past Philadelphia at #15. He's a very vocal team leader, has good character, was the focal point of MSU's defense, and was very disruptive. He also projects to the 3 tech position.

After our recent signing of Justin Bannan, and his subsequent declaratory goal of soaking up double teams, along with Vickerson taking a pay cut, it now appears we have massive vacancy for a future starting Under Tackle.

Brockers would be a Nose Tackle vastly similar to Bunkley, but with Warren healthy as our nominal starting NT, and the recent acquisition of Bannan, that particular position appears to be manned adequately.

So, to recap, I see Worthy as the better overall DT prospect, and I also see his particular skillset fitting into the niche that we currently need to fill while Brockers' skill set does not.

Anyway, right or wrong, that's my line of thought when considering the draft selection.

Reiff and Bulaga share a lot of things, shortish arms, very good coaching, maxed out body and good but not great athleticism. I could see Reiff going behind Glenn and Decastro.
