    At this point I think it would be a major upset if Darnold didn’t go #1, but does this mean that Allen is the next QB off the board?

    Haslem sat in the stands with Darnold's parents for the duration of his Pro Day.

    Sociopaths can look people in the eye, say that they love them, and then steal their life savings.

    Only if Darnold ends up being good. Certainly not a slam dunk.

    Imagine being a Brown's fan and watching your team use the 1st pick on Allen? Suffering through 0 and 16 for Allen. They just might as well put the entire city of Cleveland on suicide watch for the next 4 years. How sad for Cleveland. I was really hoping that Allen could go destroy the Bills of Dolphins for the next decade.

    I would have an open mind and at least wait and see what Allen is before destroying the pick. Remember when the Knicks fans booed the Porzingis pick because they wanted Mudiay?

    Most of these successful pricks stepped on bodies to get where they are. I’d say there’s a good chance.

    The best part of how terrible the Browns are is that they will Pass on Allen the same way they passed on Wentz (from the same system) and it will bite them in the ass again.

    Whoever they draft in the 1st is going to be a bust... Their owner thinks he’s Ron Wolf but has drafted busts every time in the first round since he bought the team.

    If they were smart they would take Barkley at 1 and Mayfield at 4. Mayfield reminds me of Andy Dalton with more fire in the belly. Hugh Jackson and Dalton was a nice compliment to each other

    I agree but I don't think he's getting past the Giants at 2.

    I could see Cleveland going with Allen for his upside. They have Tyrod Taylor for the short term so he could sit and learn and they know that by selecting Allen it ensures Barkley will be there at 4.

    But I would be stunned if Darnold falls to 3. The Giants themselves or a trade lands Darnold at 2 if Cleveland takes Allen

    Now Daniel Jeremiah who's been slating Darnold to Cleveland all along is saying that he heard over the weekend from his sources that Cleveland might go with Josh Allen. Mel Kiper is turning into the Pied Piper.

    I hope they're right, but I have a hunch - with no facts or inside sources to pin it to, but - that the Browns will take Rosen, despite his alleged comment that he wouldn't play for them. If I'm the Browns, desperate to show fast improvement, I take Rosen at #1 and Barkley at #2 if the Giants don't get him first. In fact, I would try to swap picks with the Giants if I could to get that outcome. It's certainly not what I want to see happen as a Jets fan, but I think it could.

    I'd be disappointed we didn't get Rosen, and prefer their #2 choice is Mayfield, but any of the Top 4 will be a positive step.

    I just can't believe it. It would be incredibly stupid to take Josh Allen #1 overall. The Browns could take Barkley #1 overall and still land Allen at #4. Taking Barkley almost ensures that Allen is still on the board at #4. I think the only way it could possibly make sense is IF the Browns just have a massive hard on for Allen and they think the Giants are more likely to take Allen than Barkley.

    Taking Allen over Darnold/Rosen and having the kid bust has told you so written all over it. The fool making that decision will be sent down a spiraling path toward unemployment.

    If you take Darnold/Rosen over Allen and Allen ends up being better (slim), you get somewhat of a pass. How in world are you supposed to take the walk on at practically a D2 school over the cali kids? Darold/Rosen over Allen is a no brainer and the vast majority of the NFL community would take them over Allen. It is just a safer bet.

    From your lips to god's ears, but I think a lot of TGG would be pissed if the Jets stepped in shit and Darnold fell to them. . I see the Jets landing Rosen (after Darnold/Barkley go at #1/2) which is fine by me - hell at this stage just grab a QB and let's go and let's hope he's gonna be a guy Bates can seriously coach up.

    oh god please let the jets step in shit?... just this once?..
