      I am honestly okay with most of the players who are mocked to us at 7 Evans, Matthews, Lewan, Manziel, Bridgewater, etc. Assuming we don’t “reach” on a player, the one pick I would HATE is Blake Bortles. I’m just not buying into the hype on this guy. Played a weak division, unimpressed with his accuracy, and his arm should be a lot stronger for a 6’5 240 lb QB. Just not impressed with what his brings to the table at all. Bridgewater has incredible accuracy, leadership, and ran a pro style offense. JFF is just flat out electric and a playmaker. I would not love either of those picks, but could come around to them. Bortles is a 2nd round prospect who is being over hyped due to a huge need for QBs. I don’t think he is trash, but he is just not a 1st round QB. Reminds me a lot of Josh Freeman. Except he won a games (in a weaker division).

      Lewan would piss me off. I think he’s overdrafted if he goes top ten. I’m not a huge fan of Mosley, I think he’s ok but he doesn’t fill a need and I don’t think he’s much of an upgrade over Foster. Carr at 7 would suck, but I’m kind of ok with it if we trade back.I guess the only player I've seen mocked to us that would irritate me the most is Lewan. Getting the third best tackle at #7 is crap.

      Definitely Carr, I don’t think we need a QB in this draft at all but wouldn’t be upset with any of the other three.  Would finish a handle of makers by pick 10 if Carr is our pick at 7

      Never mind stats, bortles has the qb look of warner.And I'm good with just about any player in the top ten, but I'd really hate to see them waste this pick on a ol that most likely will be one of our last early picks for awhile. Number seven needs to be an impact player.

      Bortles or Carr @ 7 would suck. I’m not buying the lewan top 10 hype, wasnt too long ago many questioned whether he could be a LT or would be just a RT in the pros. Dont get the mosley hype either, no way he should be even top 15. I like donald, evans, mathews or one of the other qbs (still on board with TBW despite the media downgrade), or one of the players typically mocked before our pick (mack, robinson, watkins) if one were to fall somehow.

      Actually would not be surprised if he's the first OT taken. Robinson is raw as a pass blocker and Matthew's has a high bust factor imo, mainly because it's hard to gauge how good he really is playing with Manziel.I'd hate any of the OTs really.

      Bortles and Carr would leave me with the same feeling I had when we picked Freeman. I’ll pray for the best but in the back of my mind I’m just waiting for 5 years down the line when we get to draft a new QB. Lewan would be hard to cheer for because he's a scumbag but I could live with it.If Manziel or Bridgewater is still available and we pick anyone else I'll be furious.

It will be the same thing they did to us when it seemed like they were trading back and going to take Luke Kuechly. Still would’ve loved to see a Kuechly David LB corps. Too bad he is the enemy now.

      I agree with Hayseed.  And After watching football for 60 years, I’ve seen many that came out of college as the next big thing that was going to set the NFL on fire and they didn’t.  I get the hype.  I just don’t believe Manziel is going to be that good in the pros.

      Any QB in the first round but especially Manziel, would make me unhappy. None of them come across as being ready and at 7 I’d rather have a player we can use this year to benefit the team. If we want a project take a QB later. Donald or WR in Rnd1, G or TE in Rnd 2, WR or a G  in Rnd3.

          I have to say Bridgewater. When I see him, I see Josh Johnson…   Manziel has boom or bust written all over him. Depends very much how coachable he is. Much of the improvosation he did in college won't work so well in the NFL. In the end tho', I'll trust in Lovie Licht to have a plan they can make work, whoever they take...   I still think trading down to add more picks is the best way to go

Would love Evans Donald Bortles Bridgewater Matthews. Would be indifferent to Manziel or Watkins. Although I would never draft them that early, these guys could be really good in the right system.

      I actually liked the Barron pick in 2012 (remembering who he was brought in to replace). I guess waiting for Eric Reid the next year, or Jarius Byrd in this year's FA would have been have been a better end result, but hindsight is always 20/20. Anyway, I think this year is the year we all get to see what Barron truly is as a player in the NFL.  Will he  to be succumb to mediocrity? Or will we witness Barron turn the proverbial corner, as most 3rd year DBs do in the NFL? One thing is almost certain -- 2014 is going to be a turning point in Mark Barron's NFL career.

      Could have done better than Barron, but at least he is improving and seems to be adapting to the new rules. He outplayed a Goldson all year and should continue to improve. If he can get rid of some of the blown coverages down field, he will be really good. The true dissappointment was signing an overrated one trick pony safety who misses tackles and cant cover.

      In terms of the fact that he is a very raw prospect who has amazing tools, but will need time to develop. In terms of leadership I agree he checks out there. But his accuracy is okay. His mechanics are okay. If those things were different, I would be all for taking him in the 1st. But as of right now, I would not draft Bortles above the mid 2nd round. He is not trash, but he is not worth a top 10 selection at all.

      Any defensive player or OT from that area of the draft board is the worst scenario IMO.Being as we already have 2 OT's ready to go drafting another means we just used the #7 overall on depth or to get a staring guard thanks to movement, neither option is good.In terms of defensive players it's not a knock on them, it's just that we have nothing on offense, the skill positions have been so neglected it's tough to see where any type consistent output is going to come from this year and outside of RB there's no real youth/potential.Our QB situation is a complete joke for this coming season (plus the future) and we have 1 real starter, who is getting up there in age, to go along with a whole bunch of 4th/5th on the depth chart type guys at wideout.That first round pick has to be either a shot at getting a franchise QB for the next 10-15 years OR a wideout to fill the #2 spot this year and take over as a #1 in a couple of years when Jax is done.If we go D it's just more ammo for the camp that thinks Lovie has learnt nothing since getting fired by the Bears.
