Andre Dillard to Eagles good pick there suprised that Jawaan Taylor is still on the Board given how highly rated he was
Also it is suprising how little movement on DB's there has been

Josh Jacobs to the Raiders. Like it, normally a lot more comfortable with a 1st rounder on a RB in the latter stages of the round.

Washington traded up into Indys spot, would expect another receiver to be off the board here.

Edit - gone with Sweat instead. Excellent pick, should have been off the board long before in all honesty.

A rare sight the Pats drafting a WR in the first round. N'Keal Harry not who I thought would take but he's decent enough I think.

I would be pretty happy with that for the Pats might of been a bit of a reach but it does give the Pats a deep threat if not a particular fast one

As for the second round there looks like to be a lot of value at Cornerback also I am interested to see where Jawaan Taylor falls to he was regular being mocked in the top 15 and the best tackle for me he is the No1 player left on the board also it will be interesting to see where DK Metcalf falls to

Seen a couple of reports that the Cards didn’t even start making calls to deal Rosen until minutes before the draft which probably explains why they took so long to get the pick in. If so they have really shot themselves in the foot as that has contributed to depressing any value they may have got for him.

Am thinking we either double down on a receiver or look at a TE on day 2. Irv Smith is probably the next best one on the board but if not Sternberger quite intrigues me as an option.

Cards seem to be wanting the Browns mantle of the worst possible front office once they settled on Kyler they should of been shopping Rosen doing it right before the draft actually started is a disaster wonder if they get to pick 1st next year they take Tua.

TE is probably a bigger need for you now also I think there is some good receivers on day 3 like Renfrow

Tonight there is definately going to be a big run on WR and corners early on as that seems to be where the value is.

In short very happy especially the top two picks in Oliver and Ford
Ed Oliver- absolute love personally I was amazed he dropped out of the top 5 a serious upgrade I feel in applying an interior Pass rush which you really need against the Pats in particular

Cody Ford - It was interesting he fell out of the 1st definately should be our starting Right Tackle really with the free agency moves and this the O line should be much better it should be much better Allen not running for his life

Devin Singletary- Think he will more likely be a Back up to Shady and Frank but the Running back room is looking interesting now it was probably one of the biggest disappointment last year

Dawson Knox- to be honest I don't know a lot about him but Tight end was a need .

Yep, especially as they picked up Yeldon too. Maybe stacking a few younger ones to learn from Shady and Gore and see if they can do well in the meantime too. And also I guess never know when those two are going to fall off a cliff. Good times though, I love the feeling around the organisation right now.

Best wishes to Pancho too. Not good news there.

Enjoyed Pat McAfee's turn at the draft.

Yeah it will be interesting to see how they cut the Running Back room I would imagine Christian Wade would be going onto the practice Squad I can't see him grabbing a roster spot but the Bills do look like they could be in for a much better year they have done really well it seems in free agency and the draft though I thought we would of grabbed a WR in the draft even though we have since grabbed a couple UDFA's

Pancho it is really terrible with the news him going into a Hospice it was nice to see the Bills reaching out to him with him calling in the pick.

Mcafee was great I love the trash talking you get from one of the Host City's rivals
