    He has the Jags taking Milliner ad the Eagles taking Warmack. According to his mock we don't eve get close to those 2 guys.

    He has us taking Vaccaro the Texas safety 10th. Obviously he missed the news yesterday. No way we do that now.

    Piloli's incompetence as the KC GM aside he would have some insight into how other GM's and scouts are looking at players. His mock has only one DT coming off ahead of us(Floyd) and no QBs.

    No Warmack or milliner but we could get Star.

    Yeah I saw it last night and was surprised. Unless Milliner runs a lot better than I think I just really don't see him going at #2. A CB has never gone #2. Only a few have come off the board in the 3rd spot...not even Deion Sanders or Charles Woodson went that high and they both brought the threat of being solid returners as well. I think Milliner is a solid CB, but not a once in a lifetime CB. Also have to go back to 2000 for a year when a QB didn't go top 10.

    I've been saying the same thiing about Milliner. This guy isn't Dion, Woodson or even Pat Peterson (oh and all those guys were electric return guys as well). So why the heck do people keep talking like he is and elite guy? Seems to me he is more similar to Kirkpatrick to me.

    I have no idea man. Milliner is not that special. If he was 5'10 no one would be talking about him. He's a first round talent but i bet he doesn't run faster than 4.48 and gets routinely beat deep. Just watch his tape on youtube. If he misses the jam the receiver almost always gets behind him and Milliner only breaks the play up because the ball is under-thrown or badly placed. This will not be case in the NFL. He does have great size, tackling ability, and jamming but that's it.

    Patrick Peterson was a better prospect than Deion in my opinion (not saying he'll be Deion so relax) and even he went 5. Then again I think Pat would be the consensus #1 overall pick this year.

    There is no way we take a safety, I am guessing he did this before the George Wilson signing.

    Darelle Revis ran in the mid 4.4s he seems to do ok covering the deep ball. Not comparing but the comment about his speed is moot point. I'm not even pro milliner I don't really care tbh cause I hope he is gone by our pick.

    If Milliner runs low 4.4 i'll be impressed. I'm thinking 4.48-4.53. And though Revis is a great corner, he does struggle with speedy receivers. AJ Green and Stevie Johnson, give him fits. Milliner also doesn't have the hips/change of direction ability Revis had coming out of Pitt. Hopefully i'm wrong because I really like Milliner as a player. At first glance he looked like a top 10 talent; it was only after watching some of his scout tape that I began to doubt him.

    Casserly's mock is completely different and honestly makes no sense. Casserly has us taking Mingo. He has the Eagles taking Star and the bills taking Patterson. He also has Milliner going very early to the Lions.

    I don't see Milliner as a top 5 pick either. But the top 5 is more precarious is many ways than the bottom 5. More bad picks occur there. I didn't think Barron was a top 10 pick last year. Barron is a true SS type and not elite i coverage.

    Many signs point to us getting the Germinator. If Warmack is gone and Milliner is of the board Werner could be the top guy.

    Werner is the biggest of the top speed rushers at 266. Jones weighed 245, Mingo 241, Moore 250. He is a legit every down type 4-3 DE.

    Even though i don't think DE is a huge need position for us he would be a great addition and foster competition with Morgan and Wimbley. Great motor and solid run guy.

    It would be hard to turn him down at 10.
