This is probably the guy who's got the most bizarre and disparate ranking in the draft. Walter Football says he could go as high as 1. But then other places have him ranked down in the nether regions of the draft.

Yeah, my wife doesn't enjoy TT Mock draft season either.

That's a good pick.

I really didn't expect him to fall to me here. I had been targeting Carr in the previous round but that didn't work out. My fallback here was a RB to replace MJD.
It appears we had very similar plans. I was hoping Garropolo would fall past you here. Mettenberger works here for me too though.

Mettenberger is a big, old question mark. I wanted to come out of these three rounds with a QB but it just didn't work out in rounds 1 and 2.

I was considering other QBs if Garoppolo was gone but I ended up not liking any of them at this spot. In the "real" draft, I would have ended up taking a flyer on whoever was left in the 4th round.

Thanks. Jake Matthews + Cyril Richardson should help make that O-line the class of the AFC-East soon. Plus a shiny new weapon in Benjamin. E.J. Manuel just **** his pants in excitement.

He was the highest rated player I had on my board, he is in my top 32.

I love what he could be in the NFL.

Love the Jags pick

Garoppollo is one of my top QBs with Bortles Carr then Garoppollo

His release and pocket presence are NFL par already
Love his release and throwing motion

I have Purifoy 3rd RD grade

His stock has sure fallen with his inconsistent acne and soft play for a person of his size and pedigree

But his frame and his first 2 years in Gainesville FL should get him drafted around the 3rd RD

He coasted his junior and senior season and he didn't grade out well considering the expectations but the potential is there and I would take him in the 3rd depending on the board

IMO. Best RB in the draft. I have a pride bet w/ someone I think on him. Even in the lesser part of a timeshare role (until Tate goes down) this guy will be more effective than Sankey.

Hell yeah Harvard.

Long corner who is versatile enough to play the nickel and some safety. He is an excellent blitzer and special teams player. He's inconsistent, especially in his technique, but the Bucs don't need him to start right away (signed Verner and have Jonathan Banks from last year). They can use him at the nickel spot, which is a need of theirs. He's got some concerns that have a lot of people downgrading him, but he has also shown flashes of greatness. High risk/high reward with a chance to contribute right away in the nickel and all four special teams groups.
I think he is good value here. I've scouted Roberson more than Purifoy.

I was hoping beyond hope he'd fall somehow to the 3rd round. I wanted him for Miami. Miller/Thomas aren't cutting it and Hyde would rejuvenate the running attack.
