    Him and Jacobs don't look like 1st round picks to me. I think Najee is really good though.

    Sure, but most RBs aren't 1st round picks. That's an extremely high standard. I think both go Day 2.

    Funny I think Najee is the worst prospect. Slow feet and stiff hips.

    You watched a lot of the Arizona Cardinals this past year? You should get hazard pay for that.

    This Kyler Murray decision is so interesting to me. Wonder what he decides.. still think it has to be baseball.

    I think he decides football and I think he should choose baseball, personally.

    I think he should choose baseball too, but selfishly as a much bigger football fan I hope he goes the NFL route. Big choice for the young man.

    No surprise here. He was worth too much playing football. In the past maybe baseball would have a chance.

    Same here. He can do whatever he likes but as a football fan, I'm glad I'll get to see him play football.

    Reading this was more just a procedural thing that was going to happen anyways, and that he still had time to choose. Oh well. Well know for sure soon enough..

    If he ends up drafted in the first round he'll make as much as more as his signing bonus from MLB, and if he proves to be a half decent starter he will make as much money as the best players in the MLB, it's a smart business decision. Main worry for me would be health though.

    Kyler has some leverage still if he wants: Draft me in round 1 or I go play baseball.

    With this years QB class should we expect him to be more a mid 1st or late 1st rounder?

    Or does he remain a 2nd rounder which is what a lot of people saw him as earlier in year?

    He wasn't on anybody's radar because he was a lock for baseball. He will get the Manziel comp but he's much better.

    Hope he chooses baseball. He's just making sure he gets paid.

    Deadspin had a good breakdown of the salary structure. MLB is waiving rules so that they can market that they got the Heisman Trophy winner (not sure why people would care, but ok), that's where the extra $15M is coming from. But supposedly he doesn't get it until he gets to the majors. However, in baseball, arbitration rules don't let people get paid big dollars until they're 28-30 or so. And we've been starting to see how analytics and moneyball practices are beginning to eschew the huge free agent deals and squeezing the market.

    So, if you're Kyler Murray, where's the money coming from and when are you getting it?

    What about concerns about his height?

    I'm very intrigued to see where Haskins goes.

    None of the top 3 teams are likely to be looking QB. I have no idea what the Raiders are doing; it would neither surprise me if Carr was moved nor kept. TB I think gives Winston one more chance; whether or not that's the right idea is a matter of opinion. I would think the Giants would jump on Haskins if he fell to them at #6 but then again I thought they were taking a QB last year so what do I know. No ****ing way do the Jaguars pass on Haskins if he falls to them unless they have a different QB graded higher.

    Nowadays teams often won't wait to see if a QB falls to their spot, they do what they have to do to get their guy. Does someone (Broncos? Dolphins?) trade up to grab one, given the demand is greater than the supply?

    I don't know if they will, but the team that should move up would be the Bengals. You have a new coach with a background working with QBs, so lets get him his QB.

    Trade Dalton, Sign Tannehill as the short-term starter (worked with Taylor in Miami) and then trade up for Haskins.

    The Bengals are cheap, they won't trade up.

    I think too much of Haskins to want him to work for Mike Brown. However, if I were indeed the GM of the team I grew up cheering for and I had autonomy, what you're proposing is pretty much exactly what I'd look to do.
