Hah. Had him pegged. So much CB secondary to be found in the draft. Safety are all scary, just couldn't pass him up.

You should take Alshon Jeffery, I hear he's not fat any more.

Edit: thought Aussie was picking next...

PM'd TS, but he doesn't have email set up.

Awesome pick!

The Bucs are upset that LB Brown from UNC and S Barron from Alabama are no longer on the board, but still feel confident in their selection.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers select:

LB Vontaze Burfict, Arizona State



Solid inside linebacker with tons of experience. The Bucs need starting caliber linebackers to fill out their roster. Burfict should be the starting ILB on day one.

There are some guys who play aggressive, like Cushing.

Then there are guys who play out of control, like Burfict.

Hopefully somebody can reel him in because he is talented as hell. But I agree, big time risk.

I like this pick for the Bucs. The payoff could be huge.

It could be huge, but it could also be non existent. I could see a team like NE or Pittsburgh taking a flyer on a guy like him, but it seems like an unnecessary risk for a team like TB that has a ton of needs.

He may be a bit of a liability in his first year, but will be much better than what they currently have on the roster. I think he will settle down and become a fixture on that defense for years to come.

Brown would obviously have been BPA at a position of need. I was really hoping he would fall to me. Barron would have replaced Sean Jones right away. The Bucs had maybe the worst safety play in the league last year.

Having said all that, the Bucs still desperately need quality linebackers even after taking Burfict.

The Bucs MLB last year may have been the worst starting linebacker in the NFL last year.

I like Mason Foster, but he's definitely more of a WLB. He played out of position last year out of necessity. Plugging Burfict in at MLB moves him out to WLB where he's a better fit and would definitely upgrade TB's LB unit across the line.

All I'm saying is it's extremely risky to take a guy with so many red flags this high. He has a ton of talent, but you have no idea what you're going to get when you select him.

Thank you TexansSeminole! The Browns were hoping very much that you wouldn't pick our guy. The Browns addressed two needs with the first two picks in WR and OT, this pick will address the pass rushing need on the defensive side of the ball. With the 37th pick in the 2012 TexansTalk Mock Draft Extravaganza, the Cleveland Browns select:

Whitney Mercilus, DE out of Illinois!



Another need addressed with a high pick for a good value! Boo yah! Mercilus only came on big this last year, but he's young, athletic and has a knack for sniffing out the play. High motor guy, gives great effort every play, and looks to be a promising pass rusher in the NFL. He certainly had trouble with double teams this year, but that goes partially to his credit that he got so much attention from the opposing O-lines. The Browns continue to build up the trenches.

Videos of him:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYofG...eature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5GXg...eature=related

Draft so far:
4. Justin Blackmon WR
22. Mike Adams OT
37. Whitney Mercilus DE

Next up:
2.38) Jacksonville Jaguars - Hou-Tex

2.39) Washington Redskins - Aussie Texan

2.40) Carolina Panthers - Timekiller

2.41) Buffalo Bills - Texan4Ever

2.42) Miami Dolphins - RMartin65

2.43) Seattle Seahawks - Ndevine7

2.44) Kansas City Chiefs - Honoring Earl 34

2.45) Dallas Cowboys - SteelBTexan

Browns having a great draft. I really think they have more to gain from staying put instead of trading away a large fortune in draft picks to get RGIII

I agree. Ideally though, Washington signs Peyton(Spends 1st on win-now players), Dolphins get Flynn, and the Seahawks don't trade up. Indy takes Luck, STL gets Kalil, Minny takes Claiborne, so RG3 falls to the Browns for free. I was hoping that would happen in this draft, but it didn't so I went another direction.

I understand the hesitation, but you have to take risks in this game. There have been many players that have character issues in college and dominate in the NFL. Ray Lewis comes to mind. I am not saying that Burfict is Ray Lewis on the field, simply pointing out that you should never cross a guy off your list due to character concerns. And Burfict will go this high. Somebody will take the risk. This time it's the Bucs.
