Non 49ers Draft rumors, from fans that are stuck in other NFL cities.

I am starting this thread to try to get a list of rumors from as many NFL cities as possible. Often the local sports talk stations have a different perspective or information that does not make it into the mass media market. My hope is that by compiling as many different perspectives as possible that it will give us a clearer idea who maybe available for the 49ers at 30 and beyond.
I live in Cleveland and right now there are three trains on thought going on.

1. Stay pat take Richardson @ 4, take best available WR @ 22 which most people think is Hill, and then take wheeden with there 2nd rounder.

2. Trade down with the Rams for an extra 2nd rounder take Tannehill @ 6, then best wide Received @ 22, then with the two second rounders fill in the needs of the OL, RB, or WR.

3. Trade down with the Eagles where they would have picks 15, and 22 in the first round, and picks 37, 46, and 51. In the second round and then take best player available as they have a lot of needs to fill

I live near DC and we know what they are doing.

But the Cleveland/Philadelphia trade would be great for the browns. They would not need to waste a 1st on a qb and take weeden in the 2nd. Having 5 picks in the first two rounds would really help them.
jaguars are strongly considering trading down because they apparently dont have much picks and needs lots of depth

probably the right move for Jacksonville They have need a pretty much every position other than running back from what I can see.
I live in the Dallas-Ft.Worth area. They seem to think the Cowboys are going for one of the Alabama boys (Upshaw or Barron) because 'Bama is the pro-day Jason Garrett went to and last year USC was the only pro-day he went to and it ended with the drafting of USC Tackle Tyron Smith. Also been a lot of talk about Dontari Poe with their pick.

I live near DC. Rumor has it that the Skins are strongly considering taking RG III with their #2 pick.

they already have a decent pass rush

they need some DB

i always thought they wouldnf end up with jenkins (they dont care about character cocerns), gilmore or mark barron

NO!!!

Srsly?

I live near Atlanta and since they traded all their picks for Julio last year.....no one is getting too excited about Falcons draft news on the air waves. Their needs are really most offensive line, and secondary help. So it looks like a lot of late round blue collar picks since they really dont have the means to trade up. Although with an aging Tony Gonzalez they would love Fleener.....Not sure theyd be able to though.
buffalo is rumoured to be a strong candidate to take gordy glenn at pick #10---they need a tackle and their gm buddy nix is a southerner who loves SEC players

DeMarcus Ware's pass rush is great, but the fans have been disappointed in Anthony Spencer and didn't even want him franchised. They think Upshaw would give them pass rush opposite Ware that they were hoping Spencer would provide. And then they can let Spencer walk after next year. They (the fans) view Spencer in the same aspect as we did with Manny Lawson, good OLB, but not the pass rusher they'd hoped for.

they did get a 3rd rd comp pick, lol. But seriously those trades hurt them big time, and don't look good.

Palmer for a 1st and 2nd remains to be seen now with Peyton in the division
Curry for a 4th I believe
their 2012 2nd for Pats pick in 2011
gave up a 3rd in supp draft for Tyrelle Pryor, who isn't a QB IMO

Just glad our FO doesn't go deals like these.

Yea they pretty much hit the jackpot on comp picks otherwise they would not have had any picks till wat the 5th i think lol. Much respect to the late Al Davis but damn how is trading so many picks within the same draft even a feesible idea. Oh and when they gave up a 3rd for Terrelle Pryor i lol'd so hard.
