Drafted Dalvin Cook for the Buccs and i,m sure they must have considered it?

I had Howard going to the Bucs initially, but talked myself out of it and mocked him to Tennessee the pick before. Never really bought into the "top 10" talk, so figured the Bucs would either take him or Cook...

Probably a bit biased but Elijah Hood in the seventh is not so much a steal as daylight robbery. Perfect fit as fill-in and eventual replacement for Lynch, and making the hand-offs from Trubisky look so good that he got drafted second overall has to count for something.

Nathan Peterman will be the Bills' starting QB by midseason...

Carl Lawson (116), Des King (151), and Xavier Woods (191) - Those 3 seemed to last so much longer than expected.

Had Lawson landed with a 3/4 D I think he might have had more of a impact as a rookie, as a designated rusher. Still, if he's healthy, the only concern is arm length. He seems powerful enough to overcome that though.

Des King could transition from CB to S, but if he's used in the right way he could be a steal regardless of position.

It might take time for Xavier Woods to see meaningful playing time but there weren't 190 better players than him in this draft.

Outside of Watson who is week 1 starter unless he stinks the place out, who will be the first rookie QB to start a game?

I reckon Peterman will start in week 14 when the Bills will be mathimatically out the playoff hunt and McDermott wants to see if he is up to much prior to 2018

Kiser will be in by week 6 or 7 I think

The Browns have 3 division games in first 4 games, if they go 0-4 then they are almost by default out of the division race by then

So from there it makes sense to look at Kiser or other wise they are automatically having to take one in round 1 2018

The only question is do they start Kessler day 1 or even Brock, I would go with latter myself

Dont think the Buccs had a good draft overall Godwin in rd 3? when they clearlt need help on the Tackle pos, despite it being a weak class, no good having targets when Winston is running for his life
