With a little over an hour what's your guess for the "did that just happen" moment? Mine is going to be the Bills trade up for Manziel. The rumors are for them to get Watkins, Clowney, or Robinson but I think Marone goes Manziel knowing Manuel isn't the answer and getting the potential "wow" player to try and get the new owner(s) attention when the team is sold. Johnny Football is what Marone wants at QB to run his style of offense. He is the clone of Nassib and Paulus that Marone had at Syracuse but with real athletic ability and ability push the ball downfield.

I don't know about that. But, there is always at least 1 or 2 head scratchers in the 1st round.

My kinda did that happen moment is Aaron donald going to Minnesota which is in my final mock (kiper copied me that Jack wagon). Other than that I got nothing.

That's pretty bold. I would say that us trading up foe Sammy Watkins would be pretty big.

But if I'm getting creative, I would say if the Texans take Manziell at 1.

Philly could make a move to grab Watkins which would suck.

But the biggest wow moment will be when The Vikings take Teddy Bridgewater

I am hoping the Vikings take Bridgewater. Out of all the QB's in this draft, I think he is the most ho hum of them all. He will be steady. Never spectacular.

Bills usually make an unusual pick so I'll guess they do something pundits look at as out of the ordinary.

Well, the Lions just gave me what of those "WHAT?!?!?!?" moment experiences.

I like Eric Ebron as a football player, but I would have traded down. I'm sure there were team trying to move up to get Ebron.

Do the Cowboys accept another 8-8 season and draft Manziel to sit for two years behind Romo?

The what moment for the Lions just happened in the 3rd round. The disappointment I feel over the selection of Swanson at 76 even exceeds the jubilation I had over the selection of Van Noy in the 2nd.
I hope I'm wrong, and will gladly admit it, but for me it's dumb chit picks like this (by Mayhew) that are hindering the building of our roster.

What moments:

1. The Bills trade up for Sammy Watkins

2. The Browns swap picks with the Vikings for Justin Gilbert

3. The Dolphins take Ja'Wuan James

4. The Browns trade up to take Johnny Manziel

5. Jason Varett, Deone Bucannon, Jimmie Ward and Bradley Roby all go at the end of round 1 basically making every defensive back drafted from that point forward a reach.

Not to be a forum cop, but Haha actually went 21st overall, Brandin Cooks went 20th to the Saints when they traded up from 27 to get him. The Packers got HHCD, and Buchanon went to Arizona.
