2012 NFL RE-DRAFT CONTINUED
11. Kansas City Chiefs
Actual pick: Dontari Poe
Do-over: Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
The Chiefs replace one stud at Defensive Tackle with another. Michael Brockers has been a run stuffer in St. Louis while also putting a lot of pressure on opposing QBs.
12. Philadelphia Eagles
Actual pick: Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State
Do-over: Fletcher Cox
I was tempted to give the Eagles Quinton Coples here, but I'm not sure if he's a good fit at defensive tackle in a 4-3. Cox has been a really good pick for the Eagles.
13. Arizona Cardinals
Actual pick: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
Do-over: Doug Martin, RB, Boise State
The Cardinals have been pretty weak at running back for a while now, relying on the likes of Rashard Mendenhall this past season. Doug Martin had a phenomenal rookie year with the Bucs, and I don't blame his lackluster second year on him. He had no help around him.
14. St. Louis Rams
Actual pick: Michael Brockers
Do-over: Chandler Jones, OLB, Syracuse
The Rams already have their defensive ends in Chris Long and Robert Quinn, but the Rams could use Jones in the way that the Broncos use Von Miller: as a pass rushing outside linebacker. The Rams would have a killer pass rush.
15. Seattle Seahawks
Actual pick: Bruce Irvin, DE, West Virginia
Do-over: Whitney Mercilus, LB, Illinois
Bruce Irvin has been a good pick for the Seahawks, but Mercilus is the more complete football player as he stuffs the run and applies more pressure to opposing QBs.
16. New York Jets
Actual pick: Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
Do-over: Mark Barron
The Jets secondary as of right now is just awful, especially the safeties. Mark Barron would provide a huge upgrade.
17. Cincinnati Bengals
Actual pick: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
Do-over: Lavonte David, LB, Nebraska
David has been a stud with the Bucs, proving to be a true SAM Linebacker in a 4-3. He would've been a great addition to this Bengals D.
18. San Diego Chargers
Actual pick: Melvin Ingram, OLB, South Carolina
Do-over: Bruce Irvin
Ingram has been a disappointment in San Diego. Irvin is a pass rush specialist with big upside. He'd make a great fit here.
19. Chicago Bears
Actual pick: Shea McClellan, DE, Boise State
Do-over: Michael Floyd, WR
The Bears miss out on Alshon Jeffery in this re-draft, making for a big need at receiver across from Brandon Marshall. Why not replace a big athletic target with another?
20. Tennessee Titans
Actual pick: Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
Do-over: Kendall Wright
Wright has worked out thus far for the Titans, and I bet they'd make this pick again.
21. New England Patriots
Actual pick: Chandler Jones
Do-over: Donta Hightower, LB, Alabama
The Patriots miss out on Jones, but they retain their second first round pick in Hightower.
22. Cleveland Browns
Actual pick: Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State
Do-over: Alfred Morris, RB, Florida Atlantic
The Browns almost need to spend this pick on an offensive weapon for Russell Wilson. I tried fitting Morris in earlier, but I couldn't find a good fit. He's a steal here for the Browns.
23. Detroit Lions
Actual pick: Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
Do-over: Riley Reiff
I was tempted to give the Lions a corner, but they needed to protect Matthew Stafford and Reiff has done a good job of doing so.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers
Actual pick: David DeCastro, G, Stanford
Do-over: Mitchell Schwartz, OT/G, California
Schwartz is more versatile and has been more reliable than DeCastro, which is why I give him the nod. The Steelers have issues all over their offensive line, making Schwartz an option at right tackle or right guard.
25. New England Patriots
Actual pick: Donta Hightower
Do-over: Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
The Patriots were thin at corner heading into this draft, and Jenkins has been really good for the Rams and has stayed out of trouble.
26. Houston Texans
Actual pick: Whitney Mercilus
Do-over: Quinton Coples
Coples would make a great fit as a five technique across from JJ Watt.
27. Cincinnati Bengals
Actual pick: Kevin Zeitler, G, Wisconsin
Do-over: Dre Kirkpatrick
The Bengals pass on Kirkpatrick earlier in the draft knowing he will be available here. Kirkpatrick has been a good fit in Cincy.
28. Green Bay Packers
Actual pick: Nick Perry, OLB, USC
Do-over: Harrison Smith, S, Notre Dame
The Packers are yet to replace Nick Collins. Smith has been good with the Vikings.
29. Minnesota Vikings
Actual pick: Harrison Smith
Do-over: David DeCastro
The Vikings need to protect the fragile RG3, and they do so by taking the best lineman available.
30. San Francisco 49ers
Actual puck: AJ Jenkins, WR, Illinois
Do-over: Stephon Gilmore
The 49ers are thin at corner, and Gilmore is a great talent. Harbaugh would coach him up and get the best out of him.
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Actual pick: Doug Martin
Do-over: Bobby Wagner, LB, Utah State
The Bucs miss out on second round pick Lavonte David in this draft, so they compensate with another stud at linebacker Bobby Wagner.
32. New York Giants
Actual pick: David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech
Do-over: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
Eli Manning could use some more weapons, and Fleener is arguably the best player available.
23 Apr 2014 02:01:38
Cleveland is in a great position to build their team in this draft.
4. Watkins. S-WR- Best talent available and top need
26. Shazier. R- LB-Need to improve the LB corps
35. Hill. J-RB- Complement to Tate
71. Breeland. B-CB- Another depth need to help Haden
83. Richardson. A-OT- Help at RT
106. Boyd. T-QB- Already has chemistry with new #1WR
127. Vereen. B-S- Depth move or a challenge at S
22 Apr 2014 22:47:40
2012 NFL RE-DRAFT
1. Indianapolis Colts
Actual pick: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Do-over: Andrew Luck
Is there any doubt about this one? Andrew Luck is a complete stud.
2. Washington Redskins
Actual pick: Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
Do-over: Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
This may seem stupid at first, but hear me out. RG3 is risky with his injury concerns. He may never be able to make it through a full season and almost certainly won't enjoy as long as a career as the other QBs in this draft. Plus, one has to be concerned with how bad this past season was for him. Tannehill doesn't receive a lot of hype, but he reminds a lot of people around the league of Aaron Rodgers. He's a safe pick with huge upside, which is why I give him the nod here.
3. Cleveland Browns
Actual pick: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
Do-over: Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin
The Browns had two first round picks in this draft: Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden. Neither player is currently with the team and the Browns are still looking for a franchise Quarterback. Enter Russell Wilson. Wilson won't have nearly as much success in his first two years in Cleveland than he has enjoyed in Seattle, but still there's no denying that Wilson is a franchise QB and a safe pick. He may not have huge upside like the other QBs in this draft, but he's a sure thing and a winner.
4. Minnesota Vikings
Actual pick: Matt Kalil, OT, USC
Do-over: Robert Griffin III
As we all know now, Christian Ponder is a lost cause in Minnesota. RG3 is kind of risky because of his injuries and his sophomore slump, which is why he slide in this re-mock. However, the reward outweighs the risk in this case. Can you imagine a rookie year RG3 with Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin on the same offense? Wow.
5. Jacksonville Jaguars
Actual pick: Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
Do-over: Nick Foles, QB, Arizona
Similar to the Vikings, we all know now that Blaine Gabbert is a lost cause. I was tempted to put Foles ahead of some of the other QBs in this draft, but given that he is the most inexperienced of the bunch I thought it'd be unfair. Foles has huge upside and was stellar after taking over for Michael Vick, minus one clunker game against the Cowboys.
6. Dallas Cowboys
Actual pick: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
Do-over: Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College
Morris Claiborne has been a huge disappointment thus far in Dallas. Meanwhile, Kuechly has been among the top inside linebackers in the NFL. Kuechly and Sean Lee would instantly make for one of the best linebacking crews in the NFL.
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Actual pick: Mark Barron, S, Alabama
Do-over: Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
Barron has been solid for the Bucs, but could you imagine Poe and Gerald McCoy on the interior of the Bucs defensive line? Wow, they would be a nightmare for opposing QBs and RBs.
8. Miami Dolphins
Actual pick: Ryan Tannehill
Do-over: Matt Kalil
Right tackle was a big need for the Fins in this draft, as they ended up taking Jonathan Martin in the second round. In this scenario, they get a huge upgrade in Kalil who can eventually take over for Jake Long at the blindside when they part ways with him via free agency.
9. Carolina Panthers
Actual pick: Luke Kuechly
Do-over: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
I'd like to give the Panthers a defensive player here to compensate for losing Kuechly, but please take a look at the Panthers current wide receivers. Yikes. Jeffery was a stud in his second year with the Bears and would make a great target for Cam Newton.
10. Buffalo Bills
Actual pick: Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
Do-over: Justin Bethel, S, Presbyterian
The Bills still address their secondary, but in another way. Justin Bethel has been a stud for the Cardinals, and he and Jarius Byrd would've made for a great tandem. Plus when Byrd leaves in free agency, the Bills won't be completely depleted at the position.
Please do comment and let me know if I should finish. Also, give me your opinions on the Redskins pick. I would love to have some different views.
You should do all the 2012 draft picks

Bengals, A. J. Green not talking about a new contract yet
By May 3, the Bengals inevitably will exercise the fifth-year option on receiver A. J. Green's contract. The bigger question is whether the Bengals will be extending Green's contract by more than a year.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, talks on an extension for Green have not yet begun. The fourth overall pick in 2011, Green has a strong argument that he deserves the contract now that he didn't get three years ago under a rookie wage scale aimed at preventing busts from sucking millions out of the system.
But the Bengals hold his rights for two more years, giving them no reason to break the bank prematurely. Even in 2016, they can use the franchise tag to hold him in place while working out a long-term deal.
Before that happens, Green could boycott offseason workouts or hold out from training camp. The former isn't very expensive; the latter would cost $30,000 per day. For that reason, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is confident Green will be there.
Sounds like he'll hold out next year no doubt, he deserves a multi-year big money contract for his performance. He would be great in New England, Carolina, or San Fran
18 Apr 2014 12:27:26
Sidney Rice agrees to terms with the Seahawks, per league source. One-year deal.

Jaguars make four roster moves
The Jacksonville Jaguars today announced four roster moves. The team has released sixth-year LB Russell Allen. Third-year DE D'Aundre Reed, second-year DE Will Pericak and first-year WR Jabin Sambrano were also waived.
Allen, who was originally signed as an undrafted rookie on Apr. 26, 2010, played in 78 games with 44 starts for the Jaguars in five seasons. Allen saw action in the first 14 games (with 13 starts) of the 2013 season before being placed on injured reserve with a concussion, which he suffered in Week 15 vs. Buffalo.
18 Apr 2014 12:23:33
Texans have officially exercised the 5th-year option on DE J. J. Watt for 2015, per source.
18 Apr 2014 12:22:20
Ravens have exercised the fifth-year option for cornerback Jimmy Smith for 2015 for $6. 898 million, according to a source
18 Apr 2014 12:21:34
Jets have exercised their fifth-year option on DL Mo Wilkerson. $6. 969M in 2015.
18 Apr 2014 12:20:36
Among the 2011 first-rounders, DT Corey Liuget also had his 5th-year option picked up by the #Chargers. That's it for the group so far.

NFL Draft Rumors: Lions, Chiefs and Rams among teams meeting with Aaron Murray
As we near the NFL Draft this May, it appears that the stocks of a few different prospects are on the rise. One of those prospects is Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, who has seemingly recovered from his ACL injury and is ready to bounce back with a nice rookie season in the NFL.
The only question is which team will inevitably draft him and where will that be? According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, the Detroit Lions, St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs are among a slew of teams slated to meet with Murray over the next week or so.
The Lions are the only real interesting team here as they have a quarterback and one they don't plan on usurping anytime soon. The same can be said for Alex Smith but he's further down the road than Matthew Stafford and getting Andy Reid's hands on Murray early is a wise choice.
Murray is growing into a hotter and hotter commodity this offseason and his stock is continuing to rise.

16 Apr 2014 21:28:09
Cardinals trade pick 20 for the Browns 26th and a third rounder.
Makes sense. Speculation that the Cards hope to land Carr at 20 sounds like an attempt to entice the Browns (said to prefer Carr but not at #4 but at #26) into a trade. Cards only have 6 picks, and Keim wants to bring it back to 7. Browns would use #20 to secure Carr (who might not be there at #26).

NFL Draft Rumors: Detroit Lions visiting with Jadeveon Clowney
The Detroit Lions pick 10th in the NFL Draft this May but they seem to have eyes set on the top prospects in the class. While Sammy Watkins remains a top choice for the Lions, it appears that Jadeveon Clowney has piqued their interest as well and they'll be calling him in for a workout this week.
It's interesting to note that the Lions are working out Clonwey given that they're rumored to be looking at moving up. We don't know what the Lions plan on doing when the draft rolls around, as trading down has been something brought up as well when it comes to their draft plans.
Clowney will for sure be gone by the time the Lions go on the clock though, so if they're serious about getting him they'll definitely have to move up to get him. They may just be doing their due diligence, but the fact that the Lions are meeting with the top prospect int he draft shouldn't go unnoticed or undiscussed.
Clowney is not doing personal workouts any more. And if they want Clowney they would have to trade up to the #1 pick and that won't happen
Suh will be traded for a top pick
15 Apr 2014 10:46:50

With the 18th pick in the 2014 nfl draft, the new york jets select odell beckham jr, WR LSU.
Great fit, the jets seem to be wowed over him, I see him and decker doing big things in the big apple over the years. Even if odells taken before 18 marquise lee, kelvin benjamin or brandin cooks would be great fits in morhninwegs offense
You've just listed 3 COMPLETELY different WR's and claimed each of them would be great fits in morninghwegs offense. do you actually aphave any idea what he looks for in a wr! I don't before you say that, but ten I don't go making stupid statements I accept it

11 Apr 2014 11:21:25
The UN have entered the debate over the use of the name 'Washington Redskins'.
James Anaya, a UN expert on indigenous people's rights, urged Snyder to "consider that the term 'redskin' for many is inextricably linked to a history of suffering and dispossession. "
Anaya says "it is understood to be a pejorative and disparaging term that fails to respect and honor" Native Americans.
I really like this trade, I think it works out for both teams

Thats the finished draft
I also think bears will sign javon ringer as another running back and maybe sign another te in fred davis
I also heard bears are thinking about drafting a cb with 1rst pick to move tillman to safety which would be a great idea he is getting slower but is a great leader and is a ball hawk and outstanding tackler
Fred Davis was suspend for the first 4 games of the 2014
No need for OG in the draft. If Fuller is still on the board at 29 I like him better than Roby. Overall solid.
