Remember a few years back when a run on OTs happened on the top of the 1st round? It's possible it might happen again this year.
You mean 2008. The Panthers and Falcons traded UP into the 20-25 range for Otah and Baker after Clady, Cherilus and Albert all went in between 10-20. Duane Brown was then a reach for Houston as they were desperate for an OT as well.
Yes it is very possible this year. Keep an eye on Dallas and Green Bay as 2 teams that may jump up for OT's as well as Detroit, Washington, Tampa, KC, Oakland and Buffalo moving up from the 2nd round depending on which direction they go in the first.
