In response to bredbruu's comment:
Pats picking Rhodes would surprise me. First, I think the CB unit is set with Talib, Dennard, and Arrington. I bet also that Dowling will be good for at least 111 games.
As for Hunt, Carradine and Hopkins being available, no surprise. Carradine is fresh from ACL injury. Hunt is a project. Hopkins, for some reason is rated by many scouts as a second round talent. I think he will be as productive as anyone picked in the first.
sea, what abotu so many dropping werner to 29-30?
I tried responding to you last night, but BDC would not let me post.
I don't think he drops that far. Pass rushers are one of four key non-QB positions (OT, pass rusher, CB, pass catcher) in today's NFL. He's consistently ranked #2 DE. If he drops that far, it would be more about positional priorities, I guess. I can't see that however, given fewer QBs will be take before him.
FYI, Mayock's big board is among the lowest that Werner is rated at (26). Millen has him at 19. Scouts (ESPN) has him at 23. NFLDraftScout has him at 20.
On Mayock's big board: He has Hayden (Mayock ranks as #1 CB; I prefer Milliner), Rhodes, Geno, Lacy and Pugh ahead of Werner. I would take #2 DE over #2 or #3 CB anytime. I would also take #2 DE over Lacy, Geno and the #4/#5 OT.
