I assume a number of people on here are draft junkies, so I figured I'd start a thread for all draft related chatter for the weekend... Finally the big night is here.
As far as the Badgers go, I feel better about Montee than I did coming out of the combine. Obviously he helped himself at the pro day, but I think more than anything we haven't seen any of the other RBs really make a jump ahead of him (not including Lacy who was always ahead, but hasn't helped himself much either).
Wagner on the other hand continues to disappoint. Looking back at last season, was his lack of athleticism at LT a major problem last year? I don't want to say we were better with him out, because you're not better with a draftable player out. Just seemed like the line had better continuity with Groy at tackle, granted those games were against some lesser teams... I know his hype built in 2011, but the offense around him was stacked.
I don't think either Frederick or Ball will go later than the 2nd round. I've seen a lot of mocks where Ball is going in the 3rd or 4th, while I could see how it's possible Ball could fall to the 3rd round, I just think there has to be some team out there is really high on him and will see the value and take him in the 2nd.
Maybe wishful thinking, but the fact he's been so productive, consistent and really no injury issues, I just can't see him having to wait too long.
"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt."
If there is a team willing to trade back into the first round to get Mathieu then there is some team that will be willing to take Ball in the 2nd round.
I'm pulling for the Packers to take Ball tonight.

I like this.
Using our previous logic, if we're talking about a 4.7 40 in the SEC is like running a 3.7 in the B1G, then we can also say that getting a trespassing ticket in the B1G is like failing >10 drug tests in the SEC? So does Montee now have off the field issues?? Damn it.
Travis Frederick continues the streak!
If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting
Look at Irvin's face! HAHAHAHAHAHA
Frederick! What a promo for the Badgers.
I wonder if Evan is relieved the Vikings didn't take Te'o. Sure looked like they would with 3 picks in the last third of the round.
I would be pissed if i was a Vikings fan right now
Because they did not take Te'o? To me it actually looks like they filled a couple of positions of need and the DT that fell to them a lot of people thought the Raiders would take at 3. I think at that point he is too good to pass up (kind of like Aaron Rodgers was). I'd feel decent about their draft if I was a fan of theirs.
