    If he can use his agility in the pocket and not use it to run all the time instead of throwing, I think he has a good shot.

    And I'm not worried about getting hurt, I think he's smart enough not to just go running into NFL LBs and he is quick enough to avoid them or just go down/get out of bounds.

    However, if he doesn't do that, he has absolutely no chance of success whatsoever.

    We'll see how it goes. He might be the most interesting draft pick in 5+ years if not more.

    I think the Bears have to go secondary and dline in the first few rounds. Probably could use a LB. Then maybe look to fill in gaps and get some capable back up for QB, RB.

    Also, Minny looking at Manziel scares the **** out of me. Can just see him torching an older, slower bears D next year.

    I agree, but only if he goes to a team that can be patient and not throw him right into the fire. Coming from the Ohio Valley Conference is going to be a huge leap in competition, and if he gets thrown out on the field too soon it'll be a disaster.

    This is why drafting a QB in the first round is so difficult. Everyone wants them to start and most need some time to develop. There just aren't that many Peyton Manning's out there. He even took some serious lumps his rookie season. If you draft someone in the second or third round there isn't as much outside pressure to start them as a rookie.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    I am the best Defensive End in this Draft.

    I'm not buying Manziel to the Vikings at all. Unless they've thrown up one hell of a good smokescreen, I would think he is the polar opposite of what Mike Zimmer wants from the QB position.

    And Norv Turner as well. He loves big armed "prototype" QB. Bortles or Carr would be my guess assuming Bridgewater is gone. I refuse to believe all the Bridgewater hate nonsense. He is my #1 hope.

    As a Steelers fan we need a defense that isn't averaging an age of 60. I would love to get Denard from MSU. Defense is our biggest problem right now.

    I don't know much about the Browns but I feel like they should use their picks on other positions and try to. build up a team instead of picking a QB every other year and hoping he saves a desperate franchise.

    Also, picking a running back 3rd overall was a bone head move.

    I think the Chiefs are going to get a guard, WR or FS with their pick. Thankfully Kendrick Lewis is not back there anymore to take terrible angles at everything.

    Re: 2014 NFL Draft

    Looking at some news, it looks like the Vikings may be looking to beef up the D with the #8 pick. Not a horrible choice, as long as we do not reach for someone.

    Been hearing possibly Johnny Football at #2 to the Rams. Maybe also, the Rams trading Bradford to the Vikings.

    Vikings will be drafting a RB sometime this draft for a backup to AP.

    Houston is trying hard to move out of the #1 spot.

    Intriguing! I have full faith in Fisher and Snead to make some great picks. I still think the rams pick Robinson at 2 and Dix at 13.

    Wouldn't mind seeing Manziel wearing the horns this fall! Trading for Bradford would be a great move by Minnesota as well.

    Who at 8 that could realistically be there wouldn't be a reach is my question. Who does everyone like at that pick?

    Aaron Donal is a DT who is very good, but the Vikings really don't have a big need there. Mack will be gone. I saw Barr a lot earlier in the process, but it looks like he is a 3-4 backer and not going to go that high. There aren't any elite CBs this year. 2nd tier DEs are in my opinion on of the positions that bust the most for being top 10 picks.

    The Vikings will do everything they can to trade down unless Mack or Bridgewater fall to them IMO.

    The Colts have a whopping five picks in this draft and don't have their first pick until #59. I'm already bored.
