    Of course this is as of right now... But there will be.

    3 solid LTs (probably all top 15 picks)
    2 #1 receivers (top 12-15)
    2 starting quality QBs (bridgewater never makes it passed #2)
    Jadeveon Clowney (deserves his own, #1/2 overall)
    1 or 2 DTs that make it into the top 15
    Plus I imagine 2 more DEs/rush linebackers to fill out the board of the first round.

    And there is always the possibility of a CB going top 15.

    To me, after #1/2, the board will open up alot more and be less expensive. The LT will be coveted for teams with a QB, as well as the WRs. I could see someone doing a crazzzzzyyyyy falcons like trade for Sammy Watkins.

    Remember, people had Barkley going #1... he stayed, and look where he went. Any of these guys are a disappointing season away from falling. So much unknown right now.

    Oh I know. That's why I said right now the board would look as such. It's almost guaranteed to change between now and next April.

    I'm really not a fan of Jake Matthews. I was bored last night so I looked up some game cutups of him on YouTube and he looks weak, plays high and spends a lot of time blocking air. I did the same for David Yankey, Taylor Lewan and Seantrel Henderson and from what I saw I'd rank the four; Henderson, Yankey, Matthews and Lewan. Lewan really didn't look like a first round pick to me.

    I'm probably going to look at James Hurst tonight. It's a shame I can't find anything on Cyrus Kouandjio.

    I still think Cyrus has a lot of work to do, he's obviously getting some hype but we'll see how he plays this year before we lock him down as a top 15 pick.

    If Locker sucks this year, we should do an RG3 type trade to move up and get Bridgewater.

    This is assuming Bridgewater is the #1 overall pick.

    I doubt whoever is #1 would go for any trade though. Let's be real... The Raiders, Jags, and Jets the worst teams. Only the Jets might pass on Teddy since they just invested in Geno Smith.

    Austin Seferian-Jenkins is a best. Purifoy from Florida is interesting too.

    I would do that or just trade up enough to get in range for Boyd.

    Also, let's say Titans do pretty well but Locker who has had a decent season so far goes down again. It would be tempting to take a McCarron or Murray in the 2nd.

    I honestly like AJ McCarron's chance to get himself into the first round this year. Alabama has lost 4 of it's five linemen and it's starting running back, also their best player is Amari Cooper by a mile. If there was ever a time for Nick Saban to open up his offense it's this season.

    McCarron has a lot of nice qualities he has a prototypical NFL body type, he has a cannon arm, and he is a leader in the locker room. McCarron is a proven winner and is a smart guy the only question he has on him is if he can carry a team.

    I think he will this year.

    They still have TJ Yeldon and like a couple other 5* players behind him. They'll throw the ball a little bit more because they're sick at the WR position and have this TE OJ Howard who will be a future NFL player but still expect the same kind of ground attack.

    Oh and look out for Chris Black at WR. He was actually beating Cooper out as a starter until he went down with an injury and missed the whole season.
