i am just worried that goodell will say that some team took a player instead of selected a player and a couple of guys around here will go on a rampage and flip over cars due to his poor vernacular and use of prose

floyd will be drafted before blackmon.

I like this one and think it gets less bold all the time.

Whether they have to trade up a bit, fearing someone may grab him before their original 1st round pick(30), the 49ers do what they need to and draft TE Coby Fleener to use him and Vernon Davis much like Gronk & Hernandez in N.E. Yes I know they just picked up Moss, Manningham and have Crabtree but I think a 2 TE set of Fleener & Davis would work pretty good for them.

Jerry Jones tries to get cute and screws it up. :wall:

Do you mean with his drafting or his plastic surgery?

Bold, yet if the Patsies do take him he will be set to accomplish that.
Sorry, but the Pats couldn't be a worse spot for him. You think in 2012 he is going to bump Welker or Lloyd? Pretty sure he would barely play in 2012 in NE, regardless of how well Brady does.

CLE somehow gets both Trent Richardson and Ryan Tannehill. Or, Justin Blackmon and Brandon Weeden for an Oklahoma State connection.

They'd have to go from #22 to 5-7. That'd be tough both in terms of what they'd have to give up and PR in that even there the fans won't be happy with Tannehill.

As a Browns fan I definitely prefer the second scenario over the first.

I don't find this very bold but I predict that the Browns will trade-down from the 4th pick and aquire an additional high second-round pick. I think St. Louis has their eye on someone and would not want to miss-out and will make a deal with the Browns.Cleveland came into this draft with all but their original 6rh round pick and then added extra, 1st, 4th, and 6th round picks in trades before being awarded two-extra compensentory picks in the 6th and 7th rounds for thirteen total picks before the draft stars. Therefore adding an extra picks means they would likely package together some lower picks in order to move-up in the draft.After making a trade-down in the first round to get an extra high second round pick I predict that the Browns will trade their original 7th round draft pick and the 6th rounder they acquired in the Brady Quinn trade from Denver, and possibly even their 5th and 4th round picks could be involved, in order to manuver up some picks after they make their first selection.

MIN trades out of the #3 draft slot to PHI, who selects Tannehill.

LOL. Vick is thier guy for now but mark my words, the Eagles will do awful this year, Reid will be coaching in SD after Norv gets the boot next year and the birds draft Barkley with their 1st pick next year.

My bold predition is that Kansas City will moves up to 5 to select Tannehill after the Browns pass on him. My theory is that Tampa Bay is more motivated than other teams to trade down.

Cleveland Browns will still get a good player at #4 whether it be Blackmon or Tannehill. I know they have Hardesty but he hasn't exactly been a model of health and I've heard some say they will take Trent Richardson. The Vikings sitting at # 3 could take Trent Richardson with the uncertainty about when or even if Adrian Peterson comes back from his ACL/MCL injury. I'm not convinced that Toby Gerhart could carry the load and get the production Richardson could. Guess they feel they have their QB of the future in Ponder. AD is 27 and he could still conceivably be pretty productive coming back from his injury but he'll still present question marks until he can prove it on the field. I think the Vikes feel that they'll have the chance to get the best back in this draft class and may go ahead and take Richardson. It's hard to imagine the Vikes passing on OL Matt Kalil as he seems to be the consensus pick for the Vikes and a big need for them but stranger things have happened in the draft. The topic was for Bold Draft predictions and the Vikes taking Richardson is a bold prediction I think could possibly happen.

Wouldn't Philly have to have the worst record in football to get Barkley?

Vikings were 3-13 with the best running back in football so it makes sense that they would use their 1st pick on another running back and have the two best running backs in the league. I certainly could see winning at least 2 more games with Trent Richardson added to the lineup. The key to the this league is to have a great stable of running backs. That is why Carolina is always at the top of their division (with Stewart and DeAnglo) and San Diego was always so close to a championship (with LT and Turner). I am sure that Spielman has got Tent Richardson on the top of his draft board and that why he wants to trade down but not too far. Who needs fn blockers. Those guys just get in the way. Spielman could always turn around and trade Peterson because the trade market for elite running backs coming off an ACL with and inflated salary is outstanding. Vikings are at team that doesn't mind flushing players signing bonus money down the tiolet. This makes sense on every level. Awesome post.

Ya know?I think Donny might just being a smidge sarcastic here. LOL.If Minnesota should pass on Kalil the Browns win the lottery because they can easily trade a pick that holds a blue-chip OLT prospect.Minnesota won't make that mistake and, smile, they won't take RB Trent Richardson when they are sitting on a $100 million contract and high first-round RB, possibly future HOFer in Adrian Peterson and a second round pick who looked good filling-in last year in Toby Garheart especially when they have a glaring need at OLT and considering they are very difficult to come by and they are sitting on the pick that has the best OLT prospect since OT Jake Long.

Following a theme we use for each Fantasy Football season, i thought we should start a thread on bold predictions for the upcoming NFL draft. Most of these won't come true since they are bold predictions, but its kind of fun to see the possibilities. I'll start.

There's a lot of talk about Cleveland's choices at the #4 pick. Many say they will take either Trent Richardson or, more recently, Ryan Tannehill. I think they instead go with Justin Blackmon at #4 (thats not the bold part) then do somewhat of a reach at #22 and take Brandon Weeden at QB. Luck, Griffin, and Tannehil will all be off the board by then and Cleveland needs a QB (even though the Browns are saying thay are sticking with Colt McCoy). Weeden is ranked as the #4 QB coming out, is older and more mature, and already has a chemistry with Blackmon. Might work out nicely and pay quick dividends.

What are your bold predictions?

Weeden would still be on the board at 37.

If they take Weeden at 22 I'm burning all of my Browns clothing.

I like this idea but swap Osweiler for Weeden and make it at early 2. I suspect the Browns are looking for Mike Adams at 22.

Unfortunately he will be drafted too early. Teams are desperate for a QB and this day-in-age rookie cap makes it easier for squads to reach for any position and not be burnt too bad.

Yeah, it was a little sarcastic but I can handle that. The more I think about it the Vikes will surely keep APeterson. Just thought with his injury they may wanna take a chance and take Richardson but there's still no guarantee he'll be a beast or mega-productive. If they don't trade the pick the OL Kalil is probably their best pick. A premier LT to protect Ponder. We all make quick rash speculations about players and things and mine was one of those. Just maybe lighten up on me a bit but I get your point and it's valid. Looks like the Vikes are shopping the pick and seems Miami may be interested to move up and get QB Tannehill,whose stock has risen and Cleveland's seriously looking at him at 4. Miami could leapfrog them and get Tannehill and the Vikes would surely get their what #9 or #10 pick and extra picks for sure. Not sure which one they have. If they trade the pick then I have no idea which direction the Vikes are looking to go with their pick cause Kalil will most definitely be gone come their pick. Anyway we'll see.Still say the 49ers are gonna take TE Coby Fleener at #30 and mimic the Pats 2 TE guys(Gronk & Hernandez). I think Davis & Fleener could pull it off as I'm sure Smith's not gonna be able to wing it downfield to Randy Moss a lot.

The Bears draft a defensive lineman at #19 then trade Matt Forte and their second round pick to the Patriots for Shane Vereen and the Patriots and their first, where they then pick an OL.

So you think the Bears are going to beat the Patriots at their own game. Deion Branch, Asante Samuels and Richard Seymour don't think that trade is very likely.

Im guessing because the high draft picks, CLE,MIA,etc.. need a QB desperately.

Don't think it will happen either really. Just threw it out there.
