Some news before the draft even begins:
-Aaron Rodgers wants out of Green Bay.
-Jake Curhan found to have a heart condition and is falling off some draft boards.
Well be updating this thread as news comes in.
Mills to Texans confirms what we have known all the time: they are bad at football.
Comments on rounds 2 and 3:
- As a new Detroit Lions fan, I am grateful to the Lions for drafting Pac-12 players I am already very familiar with.
- Davis Mills in the 3rd round. I didn't even realize he had declared for the draft until the other day. He definitely has talent, but he was nowhere near NFL-ready. The fact that the Cal secondary ate him for breakfast should have been a sign that he wasn't ready, but I am still happy he'll be gone.
- Stanford CB Paulson Adebo in the 3rd round is lower than I expected, but I also overestimated the market for DBs. However, just a few spots below Adebo... Oregon State CB Nashon Wright! I've been a fan of his, but I had no idea he'd get drafted so high. I guess one of the reasons I liked him (along with other OSU players) is that I felt he wasn't getting any respect... but the NFL is certainly giving him some. He was drafted right before UW CB Elijah Molden, who talking heads would never stop talking about if you ever watched a UW game.
I was on my toes with the Niners Lance pick, big fan of the player. Rams are taking Tutu Atwell, all 150 lbs of him, this is worse pick than Tavon Austin haha
Detroit picked up a DT who ate Saffell for lunch when we played him. Good pick by Detroit. My favorite pick so far for day 2 is Teven Jenkins to the Bears.
Just read about this item today but then did some research on it. What I found was that this trade was requested by Rodgers before today, maybe many days ago, and he thought he would s be a 49er by now. Believe me, the 49ers will have to pay dearly to get Rodgers in addition to giving up their #3 draft choice this draft, probably at least their #1 draft choice for 2022.
Kind of late for any team, including the 49ers, to make a deal for Redgers before the draft today. Seems odd that Rodgers wasn't given and followed this advice. Better bargaining power for him for more teams to make a deal for him before the start of the draft.
