    Post Draft Thoughts.

    What team do you think had the best draft?

    Who had the worst draft?

    How do you think your team did?

    Pre-Pre-Season Rookie of the year?

    Re: Post Draft Thoughts.

    Lions and Raiders have gotten quite a bit better.

    Seems like Bears didn't have a good draft, but that might be cause I am not completely sure what their needs are.

    Re: Post Draft Thoughts.

    49ers had a good draft, Raiders had an alright draft considering there past drafts. Broncos I thought could've done much better. Vikings did ok. I think Suh could have a VERY good year

    Re: Post Draft Thoughts.

    I think the Raiders did the best. Their drafts have been pretty bad in the last few years, but they did really well this time around.

    They really helped their defense with Mcclain and Houston, got a steal in Bruce Campbell, and a burner in Jacoby Ford. And, they now have a legit starting QB.

    Worst Draft. Hard to say "worst" because there is potential, but Bulaga aside, Green Bay reached with a lot of their picks. Not much to be excited about if you are a Packer fan outside of Bulaga.

    I liked the Vikings draft for the most part. Felt like they gave up a little too much to get Gerhart, but I do think he was a good pick. Cook is going to fit in nicely at CB. Love how big he is. And Everson Griffen will see spot duty on the D-line.

    Re: Post Draft Thoughts.

    Best draft - Seahawks. picked up Earl Thomas and Russell Okung, and then also got Lendale for scraps, and Leon Washington to be the speed back as well as return kicks.

    Worst - I'll go with Denver: reached on Tebow and Beadles, and will look real bad if Dez ends up better than Demaryius Thomas.

    My Team: TB - Very happy with the draft - some questions about how Price and McCoy will play together, but I think they can be much like Sapp and Mcfarland worked back in the day. Love the risk for Mike Williams, who could turn out to be first round talent if he keeps his head on straight. dude had like 700 yards and 6 tds in half a season.. with greg paulus throwing to him. Benn should be solid as well, and Myron Lewis fits the Cover 2 cb mold. Good special teams contributers in round 7 as well.

    Rookies of the year - Offense - Ryan Mathews, Defense - Eric Berry

    Re: Post Draft Thoughts.

    The Bears addressed their glaring hole at safety with Major White from Florida but outside of that...they didn't do anything great. But its hard to have an above average draft when you don't have a 1st or 2nd round pick.

    One of my high school classmates (Austin Spitler, OSU) got drafted by the Dolphins with the 252nd pick. Pretty neat!

    Re: Post Draft Thoughts.

    Cowboys. Good draft but did not address needs at safety and OL. A.O.A. might become a safety I guess, but nothing to address those now. Maybe can hope for a trade for Gaither from Baltimore or the safety from St. Louis.

    Re: Post Draft Thoughts.

    Chiefs got Berry who will be great. McCluster is already listed as a WR on the website so he isn't a RB. We didn't need the DB out of Alabama. CB was the one spot where we were set at would have like to see us draft a QB in the 5th to develop

    Re: Post Draft Thoughts.

    as a raiders fan i'm very excited for the upcoming season ... they finally put down the stop watches (aside from ford) and went after the best players avaliable at their positions of need ... not to mention got campbell for what i consider next to nothing, not to mention hes not a rookie and has serious playing time ...

    Wow, a Viking fan thinking Green Bay had a bad draft, big surprise. I think they did a nice job addressing their needs. They have the 2nd youngest roster and the talent is there to do big things. Something is going to happen with AJ Hawk before the season starts, and that might be the final piece.

    Re: Post Draft Thoughts.

    Worst draft is Denver and it's not close. I can't believe that after FA and the draft that the Broncos are the WORST team in AFC West. I think I might need to find another team until this pathetic excuse for a coach is gone.

    Alright see ya later. I thought the did fine in the draft. Oline was the biggest problem and we got some pretty decent guys. The coach brought in a bunch of team player guys. Should be good for years to come.

    The AFC West finally wont be the laughing stock. Should be a great year.
