    Niners, Raiders, Seahawks, Steelers and Vikings were all head scratchers to me though I like Hughes just surprised they went that route with the OLine that was still there.

    Oh wow almost forgot the biggest head scratcher, the Saints trading up for Davenport and giving up a 1st next year. Wow going all in for 2018 and that's the player you do it for? crazy

    Depends on the Rams grade on him over who else is on the board. But several teams that needed an edge passed on him for guys we all thought were rated lower. Hell the Saints traded a future first for a lower rated guy. I think he'll be a day 3 pick now.

    I think the biggest surprise is coming tomorrow when we give up 2019 #1 to the Browns and pick Harold Landry.

    Just a friendly tip, but stop drinking. You may have a problem.

    A couple of had scratchers for me:

    1. Rashaad Penny going in the 1st - I think the 'Hawks could have traded back into the second and still have picked him up.

    2. Mayfield going at #1, but then again it's the Browns - there's something about him that I just don't like...

    3. The real estate given up for Marcus Davenport...

    How about the lack of trade value for a couple of teams? The Raiders trade with the cardinals netted a third and a fifth?

    I'd have asked for more. Possibly a 2nd and 4th.

    “You only give up next years first rounder when you are trading up for a quarterback”
    Hahaha
    Mayock was dumbfounded by that Saints pick

    It did say the most surprising moves. So you think a 30 pack during a game is too much???? Should I cut back to the 16 ounce cans?????:whistle:

    hahaha I honestly don't drink much anymore but a couple years ago we went to a buddy's house for the work fantasy football draft. Three guys all brought a 30 pack and proceeded to drink it minus 2 or 3 beers from random guys. Funny how those same three guys finished in the bottom three spots :D

    He did have a few questions or trending negatives about him.....his 2016 season was much better than his 2017. But that was most likely due to that ankle injury. For 43 defense teams HL's being under 6-2 is a real problem @ DE. His body strength is below average for most all 43 D teams too. So for more than half of the 32 NFL teams have little or no real use for him as a first round pick.

    The team I would guess would desire HL is the Green Bay Packers. Lets see how close I was later this evening. The #45 selection. The Pats might also be desiring HL & could beat the Pack to the punch @#43 too. But the Past run a 43 D too.
