Minnesota Moves Down

The Cleveland Browns, obviously desperate to add a dominating physical Running Back, moved up one spot by trading with the Minnesota Vikings.  The move appears to be Cleveland’s shot at keeping Trent Richardson away from Tampa Bay.  Tampa was thought to be the most likely team to move into the 3 spot, but the Browns beat them to the punch.

Cleveland gave up their pick in the 1st round, 4th overall, along with their fourth pick (118), fifth (139), and seventh (211) round picks to slide up the one spot they needed to guarantee that Trent Richardson would be a Brown.

Richardson will be the first player off the board to have a solid fantasy value in 2012.  Not since Adrian Peterson came out was there a running back who could step into the league and produce.  The biggest advantage Richardson will have is he is coming into a run heavy system and looks to be able to carry the load.

Eagles Samuel Flys Away

Asante Samuel leaves the Philadelphia Eagles and heads south to play the Dirty Birds down in Atlanta.  The new Falcon corner will join yet another packed secondary with Dunta Robinson and Brent Grimes.   The possibility being that Robinson will slide back to safety and allow Samuel to come in at the starting corner spot.  Philadelphia received only a seventh round pick for the former shut down corner, but having Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha left Samuel on the outside looking in.

Samuel agrees to restructure his contract and by doing so gets a 3 year 16 million dollar extension.

Final NFL Mock Draft

We have spent hours breaking down team needs and player ability.  We’ve looked at what player will fit each teams system and schemes and believe we have come up with an educated Mock NFL Draft.  This draft is based on where a player will be pick and if there is a likelyhood of that position making a trade we have indicated as such.

understanding NFL Draft strategies

This years draft contains a superb level of top end talent, it becomes a bit week towards the late second round and through the 3rd, however the late round small school talent is very deep.  All teams with a first round pick have the ability to improve their roster drastically if they make the right pick.  Take a look and see who each NFL club should be taking.
