Below, you can find various tidbits of NFL Draft rumors and information offered by Mike Mayock, Michael Lombardi and the rest of the Path to the Draft crew on the NFL Network. I posted these in my forum, but I thought it would be better to keep all the draft rumors together in this section. I'll be tweeting these during Path to the Draft at @walterfootball.
Charley Casserly: The best thing Akeem Ayers does is rush the passer.
(Casserly said that Ayers wasn't on the line of scrimmage for 2/3 of the season, which would explain his low sack total)
Mike Mayock: I believe Andy Dalton goes in the first half of the second round (reminds him of Kevin Kolb).
Mike Mayock on Leonard Hankerson: "He scares the heck out of me." (referring to his drops)
Mike Mayock: "No way Allen Bailey gets out of the second round."
Charley Casserly says Brandon Harris is a "fourth corner" on a team.
@chuckster all you do is post insignificant journal entries with no means to an end or idea of where you going or where you been....records???? Save the tough talk we can meet anytime a simple response with records will suffice
I don't see this ending well. I don't think its a good idea to take the under on 2 teams in the same division, especially with low numbers. One team beats the other, then all they need is a few fluke wins. Anon is absolutely right about new coaches getting the most out of their teams. And although I agree the eagles are going to contend, I'm not completely sold. Lets look at lane's 5-1 record, Browns, bears, 3rd string cowboys, giants where the offense put up less than 300 yards and a good steelers team. So you have 1 quality win. My concern would be wentz's struggles on the road which is why I wont bet it. Under on the jets is just free money though.
