Draft Time Myths

April 13th, 2014

Which of these Aggies will be drafted first?

With less than four weeks to the 2014 NFL Draft, rumors and myths are flying about the airwaves and Twittersphere. Some of these have legit legs, while others are nothing more than hot air blown by those with questionable motivation or simply too much time on their hands. To quote Tommy Shaw:

“Yeah I’m sitting on this bar stool talking like a damn fool…
…So much chatter, so much noise, it’s hard to believe such a calamity. Is it any wonder I’m sane at all?”

That’s what happens in a protracted draft season. Every day is another crossing of the hellish speculative waters of the Styx.

Here are a few popular draft takes and whether you should lend them credence or simply chalk them up to too much time for minds to wander. Read the rest of this entry »

Mock Draft: Darren Page’s 3-rounder

April 9th, 2014


Darren Page @DarrenPage15

Here is a glance into my admittedly blurry (but clearing by day!) crystal ball.  Disclaimer: the written explanations are not my sole rationale for why these picks could happen.

First Round

1. Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina – The Watt/Clowney tandem is a terrifying proposition for the rest of the NFL.

2. St. Louis Rams: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn – Assuming Jake Long gets back into the lineup, the Rams can stick Robinson on the right side and have a formidable offensive line.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville – Are the rumors of Teddy Bridgewater falling for real?  I’m not so sure.

4. Cleveland Browns: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M – Cleveland has reinforced their wide receiver corps through free agency, but lining Evans up opposite Josh Gordon will put pressure on coverage schemes.

5. Oakland Raiders: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson – If you go to war with Matt Schaub, you better have a sharp sword for him. Read the rest of this entry »
