The last couple of years, Iâ€™ve live-blogged the NFL draft.Â With the draft starting three hours later and the Dallas Cowboys not having a pick until the 52nd spot owing to the Roy Williams trade, I just donâ€™t have a pick-by-pick play-by-play in me this year.
Bill Jempty’s stepped in to do it for us this year.
I will blog on significant moves and post on Dallasâ€™ picks.Â Additionally, Iâ€™ll be doing commentary via Twitter @drjjoyner.Â Iâ€™ll cut-and-paste my tweets into this post at some point for the sake of posterity.
UPDATE:Â Day 1′s Tweets below.Â I probably won’t do much today, just concentrating on Dallas Cowboys picks.
# @SI_PeterKing Any clue what the Cowboys are up to? How many 2nd day picks does one team need, anyway?
# Turns out Dallas TRADED the pick to Buffalo Bills, they didn’t pass.
# Dallas Cowboys PASS with the 51st pick!! WTF?!
# Well, Seattle just took Unger so I hereby predict Cowboys won’t #NFL #NFLDRAFT
# Dallas Cowboys finally going to pick in #NFL draft. DMN’s McMahon projects C Max Unger.
# OTB NFL Draft Live Blogging http://tinyurl.com/dgxs4m
# Browns are gonna pick! They take Alex Mack, C Cal with 21st pick. #NFL #NFLDRAFT
# Detroit Lions take Brandon Pedigrew, OKST TE, with pick they got from Dallas Cowboys in Roy Williams trade.
# ESPN wonders why not just rrade for Anquan Boldin
# Eagles taking Missouri WR Jeremy Macklin. #NFL #NFLDRAFT
# Eagles taking Missouri WR Jeremy Macklin. #NFL #NFLDRAFT
# Browns trade their pick — for the THIRD TIME . This time to Eagles. Hmm.
# @CTRaider I prefer to know ASAP, so fine by me. #nfl #nfldraft #espn
# Denver takes DE Robert Ayers of Tennessee with 18th pick.
# Bucs take QB Josh Freeman. They gave up a 6th to Cleveland to move up 2.
# Browns have traded AGAIN , sending pick to Bucs #NFLDRAFT
# Is it just me or is #NFLDRAFT much slower this year? Seems like it zipped along last year. Now, everyone’s taking full time.
# Chargers take Larry English LB Northern Illinois with 16th pick #NFLDRAFT #NFL
# Texans take USC LB Brian Cushing. Nice ponytail.
# Saints pick Malcolm Jenkins DB Ohio State #NFLDRAFT
# Redskins get Brian Oarkpo, DE Texas, who some picked to go as high as 2nd. Ironic, considering how desperate they were to be dumb.
# @owillis Yep. They got lucky — saved from making a dumb trade they got one of the best players in the draft by accident
# @yahoo_sports Nice of the Rams to buy him a ticket to Detroit!
# Knowshon Moreno RB Georgia to Denver Broncos with 12th pick.
# Broncos are on the phone with Knowshawn Moreno, the Georgia RB. I only saw him against Bama last year but wasn’t impressed.
# @steveclouthier Yup. Always some odd picks in the draft. Raiders tend to be repeat offenders.
# Bills take Penn State DE Aaron Maybin with 11th pick. Odd with Brian Orakpo still on the board.
# @steveclouthier I think it’s just his foot? But, yeah, injuries are something people worry about with a small guy at a speed position.
# 49ers pull trigger on Crabtree in 10th spot.
# @McGloogly #NFL Pretty much everyone’s confused by Raiders pick. But that’s Al Davis for you.
# 49ers appear about to draft Crabtree. Great value at this spot.
# BJ Raji goes to Green Bay Packers with 9th pick
# Bill Jempty is live blogging the #NFLDRAFT at sports.outsidethebeltway.com
# Rumors Jags were going to trade pick but they grabbed OT Eugene Monroe of UVA. Hmm.
# @Steve_Schippert Yep. Davis should retire along with Madden
# @jryanlaw Yeah, not sharpest knife in the drawer. But OL can be knuckleheads and still dominate ala Larry Allen.
# Raiders take WR Darrius Heyward-Bey WTF? He’s apparently a speedster but considered a huge reach.
# Bengals take OT Andre Smith of Alabama. #NFL. I’m a Bama guy and Smith was a stud. Team fell apart in postseason with him.
# Trade deets: Jets send three players and 1st and 2nd picks for Browns pick/Sanchez. DE Kenyon Coleman, QB Brett Ratliff, S Abram Elam
# JETS trade up to get Sanchez.
# Rich Eisen also thinks trade going on
# Mort thinks Browns trade #5 pick and someone takes Sanchez
# Aaron Curry credits own hard work for success, dissing God.
# @technosailor First four teams have picked – no trades
# Seahawks take LB Aaron Curry. Can’t believe QB Matt Sanchez keeps falling — rumored trade haul must have been BS.
# NFL Draft Live Blogging: The last couple of years, Iâ€™ve live-blogged the NFL draft over at OTB Sports.Â Wi.. http://tinyurl.com/dgxs4m
# Thought Chiefs would trade down to someone in the Sanchez derby.
# #NFL #CHIEFS select Tyson Jackson, DE #LSU
# Smith credits God with his good fortune. Wonder why God hates all the other players so much?
# ESPN panel not happy
# #Rams draft T Jason Smith #Baylor #NFL
# Jason Smith is smiling. The Rams’ pick? #nfl
# Marshall Faulk is on par with Emmitt Smith as a broadcaster.
# #nfl draft underway. I’m guessing Lions pick Stafford.
# @technosailor I’ll try to Tweet trades. I’ve live blogged at OTB Sports last couple years but not up for it this year.
# @technosailor #nfldraft I’ll do what I can. Cowboys don’t pick until like 9 pm because of Roy Williams trade.
# RT @RedskinsInsider: RT KevinTerminella @RedskinsInsider What are the rules around trading an owner for a punter? #Skins #NFL #NFL draft
# RT @RyanGrotz: If you’re watching the #NFL Draft you gotta watch it on NFL Network. They don’t have enough sponsors so there not commerc …
# @radleybalko Heh. I don’t know what he’d be doing if not for ESPN and the draft.
# @radleybalko It’s great marketing. Also supply and demand — just not enough NFL to go around with 16 games and playoffs.
# Interestingly, James T. Kirk was a much better actor in his youth than later….
# On NFL Network, Brian Baldinger informs me that 49ers are hoping to improve team with draft. It’s insights like that that make me tune in.
# Is is just me or is waiting for an NBA playoff game to end so they can show the NFL draft rather odd?
# @SI_PeterKing: Love Goose’s top 100. Love his work, generally.
# @SI_PeterKing But doesn’t NFLPA rep existing players, not wannabes? Don’t vets outnumber rooks? Why aren’t the vets running the show?
# @jaycaruso : Peyton, Aikman, Elway, most of the greats started without other pieces. And you can’t give $40M to an OT.
# @technosailor More time for blather from Mel Kiper!
# @jaycaruso If they really think Stafford’s the guy, they have to go QB. It would seem like a smarter play to trade #22 for Brady Quinn.
