It just makes no sense that Cleveland Buffalo and the Raiders would all pass on Clausen then trade so many picks to jump right back up to take him. Maybe if he fell to the 20's. They could've just drafted him in the 1st place and kept those picks to fill other needs.
Why would the Cards, or Cincy want to trade up for Dez Bryant? Why would the Eagles trade up for Derrick Morgan?
It makes sense with Oakland, since they have a more pressing need at OT. Oakland could end up landing a Franchise Left Tackle and a Franchise QB in the same draft.
Cleveland has the ammo to trade up -- filling the bigger need at #7 and then deciding they still want Clausen. Buffalo is more of a stretch.
Arizona needs another WR to replace Boldin, and Cincy needs a QB. Both teams are often mocked taking Dez at their pick -- but he won't fall that far.
But if you really want a Qb you take then and worry bout the OT later on not the other way around Especially with Buffalo right behind you. Samething for Cleveland if you want the guy you take him where you can get him. This would be more plausible if he fell into the 20's.
Arizona has Breaston and Doucet along with another guy I can't remember to replace Boldin. No way do they trade up for a WR. i don't see Jacksonville that has no WR's and no offensive and special teams play makers at all will pass on Spiller and Bryant
Not to mention the Jags have made it clear they would like to trade down, and that is no smokescreen. They have no 2nd round pick and could use help in quite a few areas.
JAX has stated Dez Bryant is off their draft board, and CJ Spiller would be a STUPID move with MJD already on the roster.
i read somewhere that the jags were regretting letting Taylor go and that they wanted to go back to the 2rb system, and spiller was mentioned as an option for the Jags
