As for Kizer being picked first from 1-5 Notre Dame.. remember the last QB picked high from a losing program (at the time) based on skill level was Jake Locker.. look how that turned out. Sure some folks say "it's the team around him that's awful" Well unless the team he goes to is Loaded with talent (and if it's a top 10 pick, that's really not the case) then he's going to be going to an awful team in the NFL too. Kizer probably needs to stay another year, sure he may go #1 as mocked, but he is more likely a sure bet to Bust as someone with a lower skill set from a winning program.
The Ravens send the Chargers their 1st and 3rd rd picks this yr and next for their 1st rd pick
The Cowboys send QB Romo to the Jest for their 2nd rd pick
The Dolphins sned QB Tanneyhill to the 49ers for their 2nd rd pick
The Bears send QB Cutler to the Dolphins for their 2nd rd pick
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.
Brandon Harris: I didn't think I had a problem collectively handling big receivers except for the one Michael Floyd TD play.
Solomon Wildcots: The Titans will not pass on one of the best defensive linemen on the board, Nick Fairley.
Solomon Wilcots: The Titans won't reach for a second-tier quarterback at No. 8.
Solomon Wilcots: If Ryan Mallett's there in the second round, you have to reach out and get him.
Mike Mayock: Eighth is too rich for Mallett or Locker. The Titans have to get a playmaker at 8 (Fairley, Julio Jones, Amukamara)
Mike Mayock: Ryan Mallett is the most ready-to-play quarterback. The question is, will he grow up?
Mike Mayock: There are 4 QBs with first-round talent, but I can't bang the table for any of them like Ryan, Stafford, Bradford, etc.
Mike Mayock: Every single QB coach agrees with me 100 percent. Every QB in this class has issues on or off the field.
Mike Mayock: It's the most unpredictable quarterback class I've ever seen, and that's echoed throughout the league.
Mike Mayock: Jacquizz Rodgers reminds me of a smaller Ray Rice. Quicker than fast, will make you miss.
Mike Mayock: Taiwan Jones might be the fastest player in this draft. If he runs 4.35 or better, theres no way he'll get out of the 3rd round.
Mike Mayock's favorite third-round running backs: Jacquizz Rodgers, Shane Vereen, Delone Carter, Dion Lewis, Taiwan Jones.
Mike Mayock: Kyle Rudolph's Pro Day is important because no one has seen him since he tore his hamstring in October.
Mike Mayock: If Kyle Rudolph runs a 4.7 or better, he endorses the fact that he's a 1st-round talent.
Charley Casserly: I like Kyle Rudolph, but he probably goes in the 2nd round because I don't see any teams that have a primary need at TE
Charley Casserly: Kyle Rudolph is not better than Jermaine Gresham. He's a better receiver than Brandon Pettigrew.
Mike Mayock suggests the Falcons could take Kyle Rudolph at 27 if their draft board is decimated.
Mike Mayock: I've talked to a bunch of teams that have Ben Ijalana in the 2nd round.
Mike Mayock: There were 15-16 offensive line coaches who watched Ben Ijalana work out. That's significant interest.
