Boehringer does everything but run routes at this point.  He's got really good speed, runs tough after the catch, shows the ability to go up and high point the ball in traffic, willing to take on tacklers.  He looks great running HS level routes in his highlight video but this kid's potential is sky high.  Can he physically and  mentally learn a route tree?

I'd be surprised if Kaufusi is a first round pick.  The Packers have met with him so there is definite interest there.  But I'm thinking Thompson is probably looking at him at the end of round two.  Interesting thing would be to see where the Packers would play him.  Get him down to 260 and play OLB, or bulk him up to 295 to play DE.  Have to worry a bit that if they take him as a lineman that he could turn out to be the next Mike Neal/Datone Jones.

Everything about the NFL will be exponentially more difficult than what he's confronted up to this point. Especially the physical talent lining up opposite him and (more importantly IMO) the speed and complexity of the game. I've always thought Janis!'s biggest problem was coping with the need for him to see, recognize, and adjust to what defenses were doing pre- and post-snap along with Rodgers' adjustments as every play unfolded. Bo! will have the same challenges.

Yeah, but does he have small hands?

Astounding. Especially as the Rams, having fleeced Washington in the Robert Griffin trade, now willingly jumps in the same swamp.

I suppose Kroenke wants to do something to spark interest in the new fan base. What he should really do is fire Jeff Fisher who's as overrated and underachieving a coach as the league has seen. Exhibit A as to how being able to curry media favor helps provide job insurance.

They want Wentz. Surprised you didn't know that PJ.

I had no clue.  To this point I've just been checking the various top prospect lists and trying to figure out what players Thompson will probably like and what players he probably won't like.  To be honest my interest in the NFL as a whole is pretty minimal these days.  If it wasn't for my love of the Packers I probably wouldn't pay attention to the NFL at all.  I'll probably start looking at the various mocks around the internet this weekend to see how much they are different from the compilation of top prospect lists I've assembled.

Wow, so the Rams traded all of that for a china doll QB who started a whopping 23 games for North Dakota State.  Missed junior season in high school because of arm and shoulder pain.  Two concussions during his senior year.  Surgery to repair torn left meniscus prior to 2013 season.  In 2015 suffered a high ankle sprain and then broke his right wrist.  North Dakota State didn't miss a beat while he was out.  All injury information is from Nolan Nawrocki's book, which I would recommend.

Wow this seems like a terrible trade.  I just don't see it with Wentz (or Goff for that matter).  And this type of move makes things even worse for Wentz b/c this means he's starting on day 1.  This is why bad franchises stay bad franchises.  I just feel bad for To dd Gurley b/c he's going to get 400+ touches this year, ensuring his career lasts about 4 years before he wears down.  

I'm so jealous of the Titans right now.  I'm of the belief that if you had a have a crappy year to get a top 5 draft pick, this was not the year.  The 3 best players play lower value positions (non-pass rushing LB, DB and 3-4 DE) and the 2 QBs are far from sure things.  Not surprising the Titans were willing to trade back 14 picks.  Very surprising a team actually wanted to trade up 14 picks.
