Last year while watching Jonathan Banks I noticed that Darius Slay was the better CB and thought at the time Slay would be the first drafted.

This year while watching Tennessee's Antonio Richardson I noticed, in my mind that Juwan James is the better offensive tackle. I expect that James will be drafted ahead of Richardson.

Mark Dominik also said that when he was #Bucs GM they wouldn't have their draft board set until the week before the draft.

How so TK? I've read/heard that from several teams. We're not that far out and according to what we're hearing the Texans aren't lasered in yet as well. Could be BS from all but seems to be consistent among several teams.

I have heard this before, but also have seen other former Gms say that their initial board usually in FEB is about 80% accurate to what the one they will draft. at this point barring, major information on a prospect, no player makes any dramatic move up or down a board. just a few tweaks

How things get reported can make the same facts sound very different.

Cold war joke. US and Soviet sprinters in a 2 man race which the US wins.

US press - The American won the day while the Soviet runner came in last.

Soviet press - Our glorious Soviet sprinter came in 2nd and the American was next to last.

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco tweeted "NFL personnel believe Texans will trade out of top spot."

Prisco suggest The Falcons and Bills as two possibilities to trade up to No. 1 for Jadeveon Clowney, and believes the Rams might be an option "if the offer were right." This report could go hand in hand with Peter King's, which said (via a friend of) Houston GM Rich Smith preferred Khalil Mack over Clowney.

This is not directed at you Texian. This is getting rediculous. People are just starting to throw **** at the wall hoping it sticks now. God I can't wait for the draft to get here.
