Did you see the faces of the NYJ fans when they announced Sheldon Richardson's name as the 13th pick?

#13 Sheldon Richardson to the Jets

Surprised that if they wanted a DT they didn't go for Star or Shariff. Definitely fills a needed position, but Richardson is a reach with those other guys still available. Smart of them, as well, not to go with Smith. Granted the Sanchize blows, but if this is Rex Ryan's make or break year, he can't start over at the QB position.

They need serious playmakers on offense. Eifert is a great TE prospect, but he's not a playmaker like a Cordarelle Patterson could be. If I were the Jets, I would have traded back 5 or so spots, picked Patterson, and added a late 2nd/early 3rd rounder.

Yes, and I loved it.

I say eifert because they lost keller to the Fins. I have no clue who they have at the TE position. I suppose there are other ok TE's in the draft, but i think eifert is a for sure weapon. Like a gronk.

#14 Star Lotulelei to the Panthers

They needed DL help really bad, so this makes sense. Upset to see Shariff Floyd drop so low considering he is one of my Gators, but the two are basically interchangeable. The Panthers have to be happy as before his heart condition was uncovered, he was a top-3 pick. If his heart condition really is something of the past, then they got great value.

Star Lotuleli to the Panthers.... Carolina looks to solidify their defense. Being a die-hard Panther fan... I concur with this pick.

Yeah, TE is def a need for them, but for example, Gronk and Hernandez were both picked as 2 and 3 rounders. I just think TE is one of those positions where you can find value and starters outside of the first round, similar to MLB and Safety. It's not like LT where you either pick in the top-10 and get a good one or you are basically waiting until next year.

I remember during their inaugural season I saw them play the Patriots in New England, and I hated New England, so as like a 10 year old, I just cheered for the Panthers. I will always have a soft spot for them as a result.

#15 Kenny Vaccaro to Saints

Great secondary prospect who can play CB, FS, or SS. He is tatted up like crazy (not that that matters). He would have looked even better if the rest of the Texas defense was even half as good as he was this season. Maybe Malcolm Jenkins can still pull a rabbit out of his hat and these two can form a dynamic, young, safety combo

That was a good pick... Vaccaro will bring some interesting dynamics to Nawlings just for those reasons.

#16 EJ Manuel to the Bills

The Bills fans being excited about this pick shows that they are as idiotic as their front office. Nothing else needs to be said about this one.

Way to forecast how stupid the Bills can be. I knew they weren't smart, but I had no idea it was this bad.

#17 Jarvis Jones to the Steelers

Did anyone not see this one coming from a mile away? They need to upgrade the pash rush and Jarvis Jones (before the injury scare) was widely considered to be the best pass rusher in the draft. SEC proven and should emerge as one of the better pass rushers in the NFL over the next few years.

#18 Cowboys trade pick to 49ers, Select Eric Reid

They needed to replace at safety (so that way Flacco can't shred them during the first half of Super Bowls ) and Eric Reid is a solid one. Not sure they had to trade up for him, but they got their man.

#19 Justin Pugh to the Giants

Another pick that leaves me scratching my head. I forgot the Big East even PLAYED football (except for that damn Louisville/Florida bowl game). Not a first round-worthy pick, arguably a mid-second... This guy isn't even a guaranteed T as he profiles better as a G. The Giants typically draft more intelligently.

C'mon, we talking about the G-men here, I don't think they had their thinking caps on tonight. Their #19 pick deserves a WTF?

#20 Kyle Long to the Bears

What is with all these second round talents getting selected so soon? It's clear the run on OLinemen during the top half of the first round has led to teams reaching.

#21 Tyler Eifert to the Bengals

Does this mean they have lost faith in Jermaine Gresham? Probably not. Being in the AFC North and working twice a year against the Steelers and Ravens, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Bengals start using more 2 tight end sets to provide more protection for Dalton. Also, Eifert is another weapon as well.

#22 St Louis trade back (again) to the Falcons, select Desmond Trufant

Right player, right spot. Hopefully he ends up a little more successful than his older brother, but the Falcons really needed someone at DB, especially playing against the Brees and Newton so often.

#23 Sharrif Floyd to Vikings

AMAZING value here as Floyd was mocked as high as 3rd in many mocks. He was a top recruit nationally coming out of high school and had a solid career at Florida who was overshadowed in the Swamp by underwhelming teams. Hate to see a player I like go to the NFC North, but glad he's finally selected.

On another note, I was really hoping they'd take Tavon Austin with this pick. The Lions could use a good receiver opposite CJ2K, and between those two and Reggie Bush, they would have no doubt the most electrifying offense... ever?
I am not exactly happy about the Ziggy pick. He only been playing for 3 years. I hope he does not end like Joey Harrington, Charles Rogers or Willams. They was a complete bust. Harrington only had 1 good year at QB for Oregon his senior year.
You are right about Tayon Austin. CJ2k, Austin and Reggie bush and Pettigrw as the Te would make one hell of a Offense.

#24 Bjoern Werner to the Colts

Not a bad way to replace Dwight Freeney... still a raw player with upside. Watched a special on him on ESPN the other day talking about how he got interested in football in Germany which was pretty cool. Surprised they didn't look at a WR - Reggie Wayne won't last forever.
