5:26 — Thanks to everyone who stopped in, but a special thanks to Guest, Sockonfl and Consigliere who added to the conversation today during the final day of one of the most insane NFL drafts I have ever seen.
5:23 — The draft is over, but we’ve not even begun here at Chinstrap Ninjas. We’ve got rankings and ratings and lists and the great analysis that you’ve come to love. We’re going to roll out some quick post-draft stuff over the next day or two. And, as always, add to the conversation in the comments under each post and visit our forums.
5:14 — Mr. Irrelevant is … Tim Toone, WR, Weber State. He was picked by the Lions with the 255th overall selection. Good luck Mr. Toone.
5:11 — 13 of 16 Compensatory picks used on defense. Mr. Irrelevant coming up.
5:04 — 12 compensatory picks so far this round. 10 of them were used on defense.
5:03 — Forgot this, again from Pro Football Talk’s Twitter feed: “Zac Robinson had a role in the events leading up to the Mike Gundy “I’m a man! I’m 40!” meltdown.”
5:01 — Patriots took D-Line with both of those picks, but just picked Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson at 250th overall. He was hurt in college, but he was also the guy throwing the ball to Dez Bryant a lot.
4:57 — From Pro Football Talk on Twitter: “Patriots had back-to-back picks. They let the clock expire on the first one.”
4:51 — Seahawks break the defense string, pick WR Jameson Konz, Kent State. The pick was the 38th of this round and 245 overall.
4:47 — Four compensatory picks are mirroring the rest of the draft, all defense. Three DTs and an LB.
4:37 — The Saints just picked Oregon State quarterback Sean Canfield with the last real pick of this round. Now come the compensatory picks.
4:29 — Good insight from Chris Mortensen on Twitter: “NFL personnel people don’t have to talk publicly about every player on board – Kiper & McShay do…constantly”
4:26 — Dedrick Epps, a TE, from Miami is another player you are likely not going to care about on draft day, unless you play in a start-five-TEs league. Chargers made him the 235th pick.
4:20 — Cardinals just picked TE Jim Dray, Stanford, who you won’t be drafting this year in any format.
4:08 — Texans grab Dorin Dickerson. Glad to see him finally go off the board. He’s a TE/H-back out of Pittsburgh. He was picked 227th overall by the Texans.
3:56 — Pick 222 is Marc Mariani, a wide receiver from Montana. He’ll suit up as a Titan… At least for Training Camp anyway.
3:55 — Another interesting blurb from Adam Schefter: “Denver traded a 2011 5th-round pick to Tampa for picks 225 and 232 in this year’s draft. Denver’s picks, via TB, coming up.”
3:48 — Next skill pick: Terrence Austin, WR, UCLA goes to the Redskins at 219.
3:45 — Earlier Guest asked in the comments if there were any good OLBs left and I said no. However, Dekoda Watson, LB, Florida State, who was just picked by the Buccaneers could be a good rookie OLB sleeper.
3:42 — This round is going to be a grueling 48 picks long. Ends with 16 compensatory picks — Patriots have three. Colts and Eagles have two.
3:30 –Penn State TE Mickey Shuler gets picked before Dickerson. Vikings take Shuler 214th overall.
3:29 — The Bills finally picked a quarterback, it’s Levi Brown from Troy. Was it a bad move for them to wait this long or is it best to wait and draft a QB like Brown?
3:23 — From @TiTraffic on Twitter: “2 QBs on a team that has a QB developing and another big, slow WR to keep jarrett company. steve smith’s prime is a victim.”
3:20 — Arizona State WR Kyle Williams was just picked by the 49ers at 206. He’s the son of White Sox GM Kenny Williams, according to Adam Schefter.
3:19 — This one’s for Guest and jzak, from Ryan Grant via Twitter: “i remember watching film on james starks with coach edgar bennett a couple weeks back..happy for him..now lets get to work”
3:16 — Tony Pike‘s long weekend just came to an end. The Cincinnatti QB just got picked at 204 overall by the Carolina Panthers… Who picked Armanti Edwards in the third round. EDIT: And Jimmy Clausen in the second.
3:13 — Another KR, this one to the Jags: Scotty McGee, James Madison. Three DEs a DT and a KR. Will it improve the Jags D/ST?
3:12 — Some compensatory picks here and we’re on to Round 7.
3:06 — FBProspector on Twitter says “The Eagles get the powerback they have been missing for 20 years.” I say the Eagles have drafted that guy a couple times and it never pans out. Commenters, will Scott be different and why?
3:03 — Philadelphia takes LSU RB Charles Scott. Seven picks already today by the Eagles: four used on offense, three on defense.
3:02 — From NFL.com: “Webb is a size/speed prospect with the impressive arm strength to be viewed as a developmental project. Overall physical tools allow him to contribute in a variety of ways. Needs a lot of refinement reading defenses and with his passing fundamentals. Potential late-round pick or undrafted free agent prospect.”
3:01 — Vikings just picked UAB quarterback Joe Webb. The heir apparent?
3:00 — Dwayne Jarrett is the Panthers No. 2 receiver so I have to believe Brandon Lafell (Round 3) and David Gettis will get a chance to make some noise in 2010.
2:55 — Wide receiver David Gettis, from Baylor, was just selected by the Panthers.
2:54 — The Falcons just picked a KR, Trindon Holliday, from LSU. He’s 5-5, 166 according to NFL.com.
2:52 — Steelers receivers: Ward, Wallace, Randle-El, Battle, Sweed, Tyler Grisham, Brandon London, Stefan Logan and rookies Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown. How do we see that shaking out by Week 1?
2:49 — The Steelers just made another offense pick: WR Antonio Brown from Central Michigan.
2:42 — Green Bay Packers pick Buffalo RB James Starks. Starks missed 2009 recovering from a serious shoulder injury.
2:38 — The Bengals just picked Dezmon Briscoe, WR, Kansas. Another player who lasted a surprisingly long time. Sockonfl told us about Dwyer’s ADHD in the comments. Anybody know why Briscoe fell into the mid-sixth?
2:35 — More on Campbell and JaMarcus Russell: KFFL’s reporting that Russell will either take a pay cut or get cut.
2:32 — Steelers pick Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech. If you’ve been reading the comments you’d know that we had that pegged picks ago. Is he a steal? We were trying to figure out why he dropped so far — some had him as a early-first, late-second player — in the comments. Lot of good stuff in there. Check it out.
2:24 — USC TE Anthony McCoy picked by the Seahawks. That makes for a record 107 McCoys picked in this draft. Just throwing this out there: Maybe Carroll doesn’t like Carlson, picks McCoy as competition/motivation?
2:13 — Nate Byham, TE, Pittsburgh just picked by the 49ers. Picked before Dorin Dickerson.
2:12 —Dan LeFevour‘s wait has ended. The Bears just picked the Central Michigan quarterback. I’m not so surprised he went in the sixth, just some of the QB names that were picked before him.
2:11 — From Rookie Blitz on Twitter: “Deji Karim is a bowling ball of a running back. Fitting back up for Maurice Jones-Drew.”
2:09 — Nope Karim was a tailback who skipped the combine. And Jonathan Dwyer, LeGarrette Blount are still out there.
2:07 –The Jaguars just picked Deji Karim from Southern Illinois. Gotta be a fullback.
2:05 — I agree with the NFL Network guys. Seattle has had a great draft.
1:59 — Sorry, Smith is from Florida Atlantic, WR Carlton Mitchell, just picked by the Browns, is from South Florida. Looks like all of the skill players are going in rounds six and seven.
1:56 — The Titans just picked Rusty Smith, a quarterback from Florida Atlantic. All the headline puns his first name provides aside, why are these more well-known quarterbacks falling so hard? Guest has a good suggestion in the comments. You are all checking the comments, right?
1:53 — On Twitter, Rotoworld is reporting that JaMarcus Russell could be released as early as this week.
1:51 — Dennis Morris, TE, Louisiana Tech, was just picked by the Redskins at a pick that was originally a Redskins pick that was traded to the Dolphins. He’s not stealing catches from Cooley.
1:50 — 49ers took Anthony Dixon, RB, Mississippi State. It’ll be interesting to see how they use him. Who’s the Gore handcuff, Dixon or Coffee?
1:40 — Rams picked Fendi Onubun, TE, Arizona. Dorin Dickerson, Aaron McCoy calling up Pike and LeFevour: “So, you guys think we should give ourselves 99 SPEED?”
1:39 — Hey, Round 5, see you next year. Rams are on the clock.
1:37 — Jonathan Crompton, QB, Tennessee picked by the Chargers. Meanwhile Tony Pike and Dan LeFevour are contemplating life where they have to create themselves in Madden 2011.
1:31 — Kerry Meier, WR, Kansas was just picked by the Falcons. Anybody know anything about him? Take a flier on him in the last round of a rookie draft?
1:30 –A tweet from ESPN NFL analyst Aaron Schatz: “Time for people to realize JaMarcus Russell, not Ryan Leaf, is the biggest draft bust in NFL history. 1st overall trumps 2nd overall.”
1:27 — Colts just picked TE Brody Eldridge from Oklahoma. He’s not taking catches away from Dallas Clark.
1:23 — I can’t find the exact Tweet so I can’t verify the numbers, but read Jason Campbell will learn his ninth new system in 10 years dating back to his days in Auburn.
1:18 — Eagles just picked Florida WR Riley Cooper. Philly went 50-50 offense-defense in this round, too.
1:16 — Word is Campbell was dealt for a fourth-rounder in 2012
1:09 — Ravens select Utah WR David Reed with pick 156. Baltimore has made three offensive picks and three defensive picks in this draft.
1:06 — Fast and furious with the skill picks that don’t matter: Cardinals take Fordham QB John Skelton… with Tony Pike and Dan LeFevour still on the board. What does it say about Pike and LeFevour if Skelton, Kafka and Armanti Edwards are picked ahead of them?
1:03 — Ooh! A skill player pick. Andrew Quarless, TE, Penn State goes to the Packers. Little to no fantasy impact with JerMichael Finley entrenched.
1:02 — Multiple reports, including the NFL Network broadcast are reporting Jason Campbell traded to the Raiders.
12:59 –In case you missed it in the comment, P Zoltan Mesko, Michigan is the highlight of the last 14 picks. Mesko is a 6-4, 240 punter with the first name of Zoltan.
12:53 — Jets cut G Alan Faneca.
12:50 — Retweeted this from @judybattista, NFL writer for the New York Times: “Whoa! RT @charityluvs Good Luck paying the 20 people due contracts @ the end of the season. Lol. Thank You Jesus for getting us out of here.” @charityluvs is Charity Washington, Leon Washington’s wife.
12:34 –@Adam_Schefter on Twitter: “Players traded for 5ths: L. Washington, S. Holmes, T. Ginn, Q. Groves, K. Morrison, Rob Sims, Adam Carriker, Corey Williams.”
12:28 — From Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) via Twitter: “Lendale White & Leon Washington… Lendale & Reggie Bush… Pete Carroll”
12:22 — Seahawks have added LenDale White, Leon Washington, Russell Okung, Golden Tate and Earl Thomas this weekend. Only Washington is not a potential starter out of that crew.
12:20 — Leon Washington traded to the Seahawks for the eighth pick in the fifth round. Jets pick John Conner, RB, Kentucky. Conner joins Joe McKnight and Shonn Greene in a very young Jets backfield.
12:16 — As if the Broncos were reading the comments on Chinstrap Ninjas’s 2010 NFL Draft Liveblog — could be, could be — they pick DB Perrish Cox, Oklahoma State
12:08 –From Michael Lombardi on Twitter: “Hearing Jason Campbell trade could be coming soon…”
12:04 — Eagles, on the clock now, have two more picks in the top half of this round.
12:00 — Rams pick Michael Hoomanawanui, TE, Illinois. sure hope he doesn’t make any of my fantasy lists. His name is too hard to type.
11:54 — Bengals select Roddrick Muckelroy, LB, Texas with the final pick in the fourth round. Took almost two hours for round 4. At this rate we’ll get to Mr. Irrelevant before 6 p.m. The Rams are back on the clock.
11:40 — Eagles take a second offensive pick this round: TE Clay Harbor, Missouri State. Eagles not sold backup Cornelius Ingram can come back from a torn up knee (same ACL in consecutive seasons)?
11:22 — Eagles Going defense here in the fourth. They picked a CB, a LB then they just threw out Mike Kafka‘s name. Kafka, a QB from Northwestern.
11:08 — Texans just picked Garrett Graham, TE, Wisconsin. I doubt he’ll have any fantasy value in 2010. He did have 624 yards and seven TDs in 2009.
10:56 — Ravens just made it back-to-back TE picks, taking Dennis Pitta from BYU. Pitta is two inches taller than Hernandez… Ravens took TE Ed Dickson with their last pick (third round). Picking a second tight end must be the thing to do in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. As crazy as it’s been, I’m not that surprised.
10:54 — Patriots pick Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida. That’s a curious pick after picking Rob Gronkowski in Round 2. I know they can run two TEs, but it seems like a bit of excess. Maybe he was too high on their board to pass up?
10:51 — Jets trade ahead of the Patriots to pick Joe McKnight, RB, USC. Goodbye, Leon Washington.
10:44 — From Chris Mortensen, via Twitter, “Raiders traded LB Kirk Morrision and pick in 5th , 153″ to move up and take Ford.
10:40 — Raiders trade up to make a Raider pick, Clemson WR Jacoby Ford. At 5-9, 186, he isn’t big enough for a lot of teams, but if you run a 4.28 in the 40 and you’re a wide receiver Al Davis is going to find a way to pick you.
10:36 — Bills just picked Marcus Easley, WR, UConn. Easley’s 6-3, 210. He ran a 4.46 in the 40. Buffalo’s decision to not draft a quarterback is puzzling. Do they pick a QB before the day is over?
10:34 — Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland finally picked. A lot of people had him as a top-10 pick. Raiders get a steal in Round 4?
10:32 — Looking at the LenDale White trade, it seems like the Titans just wanted to get rid of him. The Titans swapped up in the fourth and sixth, but also gave up two players.
10:26 — Can Carroll keep LenWhale on the wagon to awesome? White had more than 1,200 total yards and seven TDs in 2007 and rushed for 773 yards (3.9YPC) with 15 TDs in 2008.
10:24 — LenDale White traded to the Seahawks and former coach Pete Carroll.
10:19 –Everson Griffen, picked second in this round (100th overall) was the consensus No. 31 overall pick for NFL.com fans. Eight players in the first round were not in the fans’ consensus top 32.
10:17 — Are Arrelious Benn and Mike Williams powerful enough weapons to turn Josh Freeman into a starter in 12-14-team leagues?
10:15 — Two of the first three picks go to wide receivers. Buccaneers take Mike Williams, WR, Syracuse. Like Sockonfl said in the comments yesterday, all of the receivers fell. Williams could have gone much earlier.
10:13 — @Adam_Schefter via Twitter: “Key player in the fourth round is the Eagles, who have four picks.”
10:07 — Rams kick off Day 3 with a skill pick, Mardy Gilyard, WR, Cincinnatti. There was much talk about Gilyard in the comments at the end of the Day 2 liveblog. Bradford-to-Gilyard rookie connection? If it was a team other than the Rams I’d be excited. In a dynasty, you have to think about picking Gilyard.
9:58 — It is morning. Chinstrap Ninjas rises early for you. So, what player do you want to see get drafted today?
