(NFL Draft Recap)

It was fast, it was furious, it was what we expected, but then it all changed.

That was the summary of the first round of the NFL draft.

Everyone at the top of the board-talked trades, and then no deals happened, because teams would have dropped too far down the board, or the price was too high to trade up.

Candid thoughts on what I saw:

BEARS..Caleb Williams and then WR-Rome Odunze, joining Keenan Allen and DJ Moore plus 3-running backs.  All of a sudden Da Bears have a dangerous offense.

WASHINGTON..After failing with 5-first round draft pick QBs, they go get Jayden Daniels.  Now they have to add players around him.  But this is better than the days of Robert Griffin-Dwayne Haskins etc.

PATRIOTS…How good is Drake Maye?  Got to be better than Mac Jones.  But they sure don’t have alot of firepower around him yet.

ARIZONA..Marvin Harrison-great choice, now can he become Larry Fitzgerald?

CHARGERS…Had 4-trade offers, then a 5th one came in while on the clock, but said no, take the best player, the Notre Dame OT-Joe Alt.  They have lots of holes on their roster.

GIANTS..have not had a 1,000-yard receiver in half a decade, so they go get Malik Nabers to run routes and catch TDs.  Anything to help QB-Daniel Jones.

ATLANTA..The first shocker of the night, Michael Penix, after you gave all that money to free agent Kirk Cousins.  Maybe heir apparent, or insurance policy if Cousins has more Achilles issues.  Bypassed elite pass rushers.  Strange.

VIKINGS..They got a QB and didn’t have to give up both their first round picks, so JJ McCarthy gets to learn under head coach Kevin O’Connell..

DENVER..Is he the next Drew Brees?  Sean Payton will find out after picking Bo Nix some  10-picks ahead of where most people had him going.

RAMS..Needed a pass rusher, got one in FSU’s DE-Jared Verse, and it was the first first round pick the Rams have had since 2016.

CHIEFS…Sure looks like Rashee Rice is going to prison on this felony-auto accident case, that’s why they traded up for Texas WR-Xavier Worthy.

More to come on Friday with the 2nd and 3rd rounds up on the board-Friday evening.

    Apparently the Bowers pick was not worthy of a comment. The Raiders got a tremendous roster upgrade.
