Final Thoughts:  Lots of risers and fallers.  Guys that were Top 10 locks a few weeks ago have fallen to the late first round (Vic Beasley, Shane Ray, Randy Gregory) and some have completely dropped out (Landon Collins, La’el Collins).  For La’el, having to leave the Draft to be questioned in the death of your pregnant ex-girlfriend means you don’t get drafted tonight.  Great value in the 2nd though.

I do think someone will make a trade with Tennessee at 2 to take Mariota.  San Diego makes a lot of sense (especially for a franchise looking to rebuild in L.A.) but Philly and Cleveland are making a real push.  Don’t count Chip Kelly out of this.

For some rises, Kevin Johnson is making a real push to be the first corner off the board.  He is flying up draft boards, and now seems like a lock in the Top 15.  Speaking of corners, the Giants surprise many and grab Trae Waynes.  Reese wants an impact player at #9, and for that reason, I think the Giants will wait to find an offensive lineman in the later rounds (here’s looking at you, Ali Marpet).

A big riser is Todd Gurley.  As teams are getting more and more comfortable with his medical checkup, he is continuing to climb up draft boards.  He makes perfect sense for the Vikings, who (assuming they don’t trade AP) can slowly bring Gurley into the mix.

Receivers should be the story of the night.  At least 5, and as many as 9, could go in the first round.  I’m right in the middle with 7.

Get ready for lots of trades and plenty of action.  We’ll be live tweeting the whole night from The Machine’s Draft Day Party.  And, don’t forget to play our Draft Party Drinking Game.  Guaranteed to enhance your Draft Day experience!
