BB's mid-draft maneuvering was a bit of a head-scratcher, but I dug the Pats' draft based on the two late first-round grabs alone. Hightower and Jones should play and make an impact immediately. Awesome grabs.
I didn't get the hype with Tannehill. He didn't impress me much and I saw him play a lot. I think Miami will be back in two to three years finding yet another QB prospect.
I think Tannehill was the clear #3 QB in the draft (big, smart, athletic, strong arm), with a ceiling that may equal, if not surpass, that of RGIII. Sure, there's (arguably) a lot more risk involved with Tanny, but he's a great fit for Miami, and the Dolphins weren't able to trade down. He wasn't going to last til' the 2nd round, so they bit the bullet. If Tannehill reaches his potential, Fin fans will be okay with missing out on Luke Kuechly or Michael Floyd. The rest of the Dolphins draft was solid. Martin will start, Vernon will serve as a much-needed pass-rusher, Miller will be the KR/PR as he awaits a bigger role in '13, and Agnew has huge potential in Philbin's offense. Hunch prediction: B.J. Cunningham surprises and emerges as a player.
Speaking of Kuechly, I'm glad he's not a Bill. Still, I think Buffalo also had a solid draft. Gilmore, Glen, and Bradham were all real solid selections. T.J. Graham's an absolute burner. It'll be interesting to see how much he plays in his rookie season.
Aren't the Jets trying to win now? Not overly impressed with their draft. Coples was far too inconsistent in college, IMO, to warrant such a high selection, and Hill, while having solid potential, seems too raw to be able to contribute immediately. All jokes aside, I liked the Griffin selection late, but as was mentioned above, their offensive line issues were left unresolved.
