Because of that superstar in the photo in this post, the Las Vegas Raiders don’t have a first-round pick (yes, they can always move back in).
But we’re still paying attention to the first round of the draft tonight. I will be adding thoughts of key moments in the round and you can use the comment section to express your thoughts.
Have a blast.
Here we go. Who is going to Duval County? Walker is my guess.
Hey, I’m right.
Hutchinson has to be staying in Michigan. Good for him .. and the Lions.
This could start a defensive streak.
Meanwhile, Derek Carr is feeling himself.
He got his receiver. He got his new contract. He can do what he wants with his hair, I reckon.
Meanwhile, Derek Stingley at No. 3. Defense. defense, defense.
First time since 1992 that three defensive players top the draft.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 29, 2022
Make that four. Sauce Garner to the Jets.
**First time ever** -- since the 1970 merger -- that the top four picks were all defense— Ben Volin (@BenVolin) April 29, 2022
Probably tackle time now.
Nope, this is wild.
The Giants are taking ... Oregon DE Kayvon Thibodeaux.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 29, 2022
I bet offense for next two picks.
Trades for tackles going to start?
Finally, an offensive player.
The Panthers are taking NC State OT Ickey Ekwonu at 6.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 29, 2022
I see a tackle here at No. 7, too.
Yep, Evan Neal. Good day for the G-Men.
Atlanta takes Drake London at No. 8. First receiver. looks like former Raider Marcus Mariota will start for the Falcons this year.
Now, it’s a offense run. Cross at No. 9 to Seattle in first draft piece of Russell Wilson trade with Denver.
Deebo trade time with the Jets?
Nope, no trade. Garret Wilson to Jets.
Five defenders, then five offensive players. Fun freakin draft so far.
Washington trading down. Saints. Willis?
Raiders’ fan favorite Chris Olave to Saints. Wow.
Now, a big trade by the Lions.
Has to be a quarterback. Vikings probably thinks the quarterbacks stink are are happy to oblige.
No, Jameson Williams. That’s a lot for him. Do Lions believe in Jared Goff?
Oh, and AFC West tilt between the Chargers and host Chiefs in Week 2 on Thursday night. Fun.
Another trade. Eagles at 13. This is bonkers.
Jordan Davis to Eagles. He would have been a nice trade-up for the Raiders. Be happy he didn’t land with the Chargers.
They may have wanted Davis, but Kyle Hamilton is a great pick for Baltimore.
“Hollywood” Brown,. A.J. Brown. Nuts.
Also, Chargers get more protection for Justin Gilbert.
I’m going to do some writing.
