I don't see any mocks there. I'm interested b/c in Bagel's dynasty I have to give up either MJD or Fitz and I am crazy with indecision.

All I see are predictions of who NFL teams will draft. Who cares? Eugene Moore and Eben Britton Offensive Tackles? First round draft picks whose names you will never hear again unless they get flagged for a false start or holding.

It makes me sad the Lions are going to invest so much money in Stafford :-/ All I see is Alex Smith, not Matt Ryan. I hope I'm wrong. They need to fix that line, or he's going to spend more time on his back than your least favorite member's mom.

Don't tell me you'd rather have Sanchez.

I don't want them to take either QB #1 overall. Too much wasted money. If they traded down to the high single digits and took one I wouldn't mind, but a $60+ million committment for the hardest position to fill scares the heck out of me. There's no impact player really, but they need an upgrade at 11 positions on defense, so I'd rather see them take Curry.

That said, I'll still buy a Stafford jersey. My Joey Harrington and Charlie Batch ones need company.

I really don't want to see the Seahawks take Sanchez. It really seems that the top QBs are more miss than hit. I would like to see them take Curry or an OT or even Crabtree before they went with a QB.

On Mike and Mike today, they went through every first overall pick ever and found there was a higher success rate at QB than almost any other repeatedly chosen position. The idea is that a lot of first overall picks fail period and that the idea that QBs are more volatile than any other position is misguided.

As long as there is a decent OT available at 20 (who knows), then I am liking Stafford at 1. He's run a closer to pro-style offense than Sanchez and has sustained his success for more than a handful of games. He doesn't have knee issues and is the perfect type of quarterback to pair with Calvin Johnson. He also carried UGA to a decent record last season on a team that basically re-wrote the injury record book. I don't think he's getting enough due as a prospect personally. The "Sanchez went to USC so he's going to succeed/he had a great game against Penn State in the Rose Bowl so he's awesome" thing is getting overblown IMO, but whatever.
