    The price to move to #1 overall instead of #2 overall will be a lot heftier. Texans need a QB badly, the Rams don't. So they will have to pay extra to persuade the Texans to trade back and not take the top QB. If that does happen, still have a good chance to trade back for a team looking to grab Carr or Clowney. But if we can't find a good trade, Mathews or Clowney will be our own pick. IMO.

    how l would like draft to go
    1a clowney
    1b best cb
    2 best fs
    3a best ot
    3b best og
    45677 traded to get as close as possible to top of round3

    with those 1st 3 picks our defense should be top 5 maybe even #1 within a year or 2
    with the 2 3rd round picks boudreau (who works wonders with ol men) developes ol that is ok.
    this is assuming we resign saffold.
    by trading away the lower pick we lose the chance for hitting a gem but we don't wind up cutting a lot of last year lower rnd picks or udfa like ray ray. this will give the team a chance to mature some.
    i know we don't get a 1 wr but for a team that only thows 20 to 25 times a game do we need 1.
    after all if we get a 1 wr who do we take the targets from. most want t austin to get 4 or 5. te should get 4 or 5 to keep defense honest same for rb (screens and swings ) and baily givins quick pettis need thows to develope.
    with this draft the team has a chance to mature. then with the df taken care of the next few years can go all of . the future looks bright even if fisher and snead don't follow my plan. ha ha

    this year there isn't a luck or rg3 so i don't think there will be the killer deals like ours with washington. maybe someone will impress at the combine and make a big deal possible

    Might not be the big deal we got, but will be a good bit more than moving up to #2. Especially since the Texans do need a QB(and would probably want the top rated), and we don't need one.

    On a side not, i read a couple scouts say Bridgewater has as good a skill set as Luck(i don't think so), so who knows.

    Round 1 Pick 15: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State (B)
    Round 1 Pick 17 (CHI): C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama (A)
    Round 2 Pick 10 (BUF): Lael Collins, OT, LSU (B+)
    Round 2 Pick 15: Terrence Brooks, FS, Florida State (B+)
    Round 2 Pick 19 (BALT): Kelvin Benjamin, WR, Florida State (B)
    Round 3 Pick 1 (HOU): Anthony Steen, OG, Alabama (B+)
    Round 3 Pick 24 (IND): Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh (A)
    Round 4 Pick 2 (WASH): Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor (A)
    Round 4 Pick 11 (NYG): David Fales, QB, San Jose State (A)
    Round 4 Pick 28 (N.E.): Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State (A)
    Round 7 Pick 15: Corey Linsley, C, Ohio State (B+)

    Your Future Picks:
    2015 Round 1 Pick (BUF)
    2015 Round 1 Pick
    2016 Round 1 Pick

    He tore his ACL back in October, thats probably why. Before the tear he was a 4th/5th rounder i think. I still really like him like you do and would grab him in the 7th or UDFA if possible.

    That's exactly why he dropped just like most of the Cornhusker line. I think they all have been injured sometime this season.

    You are obviously a Husker fan, so know more about Long than i do. Is he as good as i think he is? Is he worth a late round pick? I think so, especially since he can be had later because of the injury, but don't know as much as someone who has watched him a lot more than me, but thats why i am asking, what your opinion is of him.

    I actually like the entire OL of the Huskers. Long is solid and. The injury definitely hurts his stock but yes, he's worth a late round flyer. The other OG Andrew Rodriguez is not a slouch either. http://www.omaha.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20131217/HUSKERS/131218865

    I've had Long in a few of my mocks. I like him as a developmental OG. Will fall because he's a limited athlete that doesn't have overpowering strength or size. But he kind of reminds me of Harvey Dahl. Non-stop motor, nasty and plays through the whistle...enforcer that exerts max effort at all times. I think he's worth a flyer.

    Lots of underclassmen have declared over the last few days. Total list now has 22 to date: http://www.draftnikcentral.com/draft-prospects/2014/underclassmen-declared/

    WR Davante Adams - Fresno St.: http://www.draftnikcentral.com/draft-prospects/player-profile/?player_id=1738
    TE Richard Rodgers - California: http://www.draftnikcentral.com/draft-prospects/player-profile/?player_id=2050
    TE Jake Murphy - Utah: http://www.draftnikcentral.com/draft-prospects/player-profile/?player_id=2331

    All declared today. Adams and Rodgers are both very intriguing.

    Brett Smith of Wyoming is going pro. He's their starting QB. I haven't evaluated him yet because I didn't expect him to declare but I've heard good things about him from people I respect.

    I think he's a guy we'll look at for our backup QB job. Likely a 3rd round pick. From what I've heard(again, haven't evaluated him yet), he's a very good athlete with a quick release and solid arm strength. The guy I talked to compared him to Jake Plummer.

    Bridgewater, well, WOW! #1 pick for sure if he comes out. That kid is amazing! Please let us get the first pick. Somebody will pay a boat load for this guy.

    Bridgewater is done at Louisville. He just handed his mom his helmet into the stands. I think he does that because he's not going to wear it again.

    Yep. As I've said before, this is the only guy that I'd draft in order to move on from Sam at QB.

    And that's not because I think lowly of Sam, it's because I think highly of Bridgewater. He's special. He makes tight window throws look easy and effortless. He's polished and runs a pro style offense in college from the LOS. He has a strong arm that can make any throw and very good mobility. His ability to throw on the run is excellent. Most of all, though, he has the right balance of gunslinger and game manager in him. Willing to dink and dunk when the defense gives it to him but not afraid to attack down the field even if there is tighter coverage.

    I think the world of the kid and could go on for hours on all the great things I see in his game. He has no glaring flaws except for his size/frame. He can be a tad streaky but it's not a glaring issue.
