    Very interesting poll results so far. On both the SHOULD and WILL polls, there is an overwhelming majority at the OT spot. The difference is that more people (so far) think the Rams SHOULD take Matthews, but WILL take Robinsion.

    Voted big GR but it's a tossup, of course, between him and Matthews.

    Went with Robinson; let him go the Ogden-route and play LG for a year or two before moving to LT. I also wouldn't mind Mack because he would be absolutely dominant in a Gregg Williams defense, both against the run and the pass. If the Rams do trade down (which I expect them to do) I can see them targeting Watkins or Matthews.

    Found this new article in the plethora of 2014 NFL Draft articles.

    Falcons could move to No. 1 for Greg Robinson, not Jadeveon Clowney
    By Jason La Canfora
    CBS Sports NFL Insider
    May 1, 2014

    If the Atlanta Falcons trade to first overall it could be for Greg Robinson, according to league sources.

    The Texans and Falcons continue to mull options in terms of a pre-draft trade involving the first overall pick. While many, myself included, have made note of Atlanta's strong interest in pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney, they are also very, very high on tackle Greg Robinson.

    Tackle is an acute need as well as they are desperate to better protect Matt Ryan and several execs believe the Falcons could move to first overall for Robinson, a freak of nature physically who while raw has tremendous potential. The Rams are considering Robinson very highly at second overall, and Atlanta would need to jump them to get Robinson (and if Clowney then slid to second overall I'd expect the Rams to take him despite the young pass rushers already on their roster).

    If Atlanta stays at six, several GMs I spoke to believe by that point the top three tackles could all be gone, as well as Clowney and Khalil Mack, the top two defensive players, and drafting another receiver that high wouldn't make sense after the Julio Jones trade. Trading down might be an option if a team wanted Sammy Watkins at six, but you can't bank on that.

    Expect to hear about the Falcons possibly targeting a tackle with a move up, and not just the option of Clowney.

    IMO, we should bolster the line. we have drafted four WR's in two years. One of the needs to step up.

    Decisions, decisions. I for one am on the fence ... then get off the fence, then jump on it.

    I know I'm not alone. Nobody is!


    Now I want Watkins at No. 2.




    Let's go Lewan at No. 13.




    Wow. If only it were that simple.

    THE FENCE. Can only imagine what the team coaches, GMs, owners, and scouts go through.

    I think Les was not Kidding when he recently said this is... hmmm forgot the exact quote but I think he said exciting but I bet he meant excruciating, draft he has ever been a part of! LOL
    And my dream draft is still Lewan/Evans in the first round so your choices of Watkins/Lewan works for me as well. I still voted for Matthews as our need on the OL is huge if we stayed at 2. Not sure we could get Lewan if we drafted Watkins at 2. This is what drives us nutty, trying to get the pieces we want to fall into place. Glad I am not in Les/Fisher's shoes as they are trying to do this IRL... No easy task but one to relish at the same time!
