Your NFL Draft Friday Night Open Thread

JOHNATHAN HANKINS DANCING DOT GIF

No Buckeyes were taken in last night's first round of the NFL Draft, but tonight figures to be a little different. Mammoth Ohio State defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins is projected to go somewhere in the second round tonight, while defensive end John Simon could go in the third round as an outside linebacker.

If Simon slides out of the third round, he'll certainly go early tomorrow, when the draft resumes with fourth-round selections.

The first round was heavy on both sides of the trench with offensive and defensive linemen snapped up like they were endangered species. If that trend continues, Reid Fragel may slide up into a third round selection, but that's a bit of a long shot. Still, GO REID!

Is it too much to ask for both on the Giants?

I can't believe they didn't have Eddie George announce for Titans. Come on!
Time is wrong, 6:30pm ET. Draft is on now! or is that for the 3rd round start? 
I hope Hankins drops all the way to my Chiefs but I also hope he doesn't! come on guys, figure it out. Guy produces.

I wonder how many teams are thinking they can get a great deal on a huge potential player in Fragel in the 3rd round? I think he could be a possible starter at RT right away with an eventual move to LT. I wouldn't hate it!

Buckeyejason's picture

I HIGHLY disagree that Fragel can come in and start right away. I mean Mike Adams was alot better and struggled big time.

BUCKEYES BABY!

There you go bengals fans! There is your running back. Lots of talent for Dalton. 
Browns trade for Devone Bess. IDK!!!

my brownies have always had one foot in their ass since the return. god what was the damage for trading for him?

Squirrel Master's picture

I don't know yet. They were talking about it on the ESPN live chat. It hasn't been formally announced at the draft.

if it its higher than a 5th round pick its too much

Squirrel Master's picture

What they did was swap position in 2 rounds, I think 3rd and 4th or 2nd and 4th. Didn't give up any picks though.

maybe your Brownies should have some tree in them.

Great pick up for the Brownies IMO. Davone Bess has averaged 65 receptions over a 5 year career. Name a current Brown that can say that! Plus they didn't give anything up for him.

Dr. House's picture

well i would have drafted manti teo's fake dead girlfriend before him. way more potential 

BuckeyeChief's picture

Well, the "Sanchize" just lost his job!

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

Squirrel Master's picture

Well everyone can breathe now. If you didn't want Teo or Geno on your teams, they are gone. Interesting pick by San Diego. Next Junior Seau? Most likely not!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Buckeyejason's picture

Poor Geno..welcome to media hell my friend! 
At least he has an Italian first name to help him fit in lol.

BUCKEYES BABY!

The Jets passed on Robert Woods. :/

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

RedStorm45's picture

To take Geno....bahaha

skid21's picture

I've not been following the draft but wondering why Big Hank has slipped?

RedStorm45's picture

Kawann Short off the board to Carolina, who took Star Lotuylllytuj in the first round out of Utah.

RedStorm45's picture

Bills are making up for their first round pick, I think.  Like their two 2nd rounders.

Unky Buck's picture

I thought that same thing. They definitely made up for the first pick...but sadly the point remains...they could've gotten EJ Manual so much later than where they took him and it's still irritating me.

...

RedStorm45's picture

I think Hankins could go in the next 4 picks, lots of teams needing to rebuild their DLines.

BuckeyeChief's picture

*fingers crossed*

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

RedStorm45's picture

Apparently we're all too high on Hankins.
 
edit:never mind called it.

RedStorm45's picture

Le'Veon Bell over Ball and Lacy??

EvanstonBuckeye's picture

No shit. As a Steelers fan I hate this pick. They rarely miss, but I'm afraid this is one.

RedStorm45's picture

Lacy gives you more speed but can pound it as well.  Makes no sense.

airborne082385's picture

Loving the BIG backs going over Lacy!  

RedStorm45's picture

Edit : Im dumb.
 

Squirrel Master's picture

WOW! Giants! Hankins is going to a hell of a line!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

THANK GOD IT'S NOT THE STEELERS

EvanstonBuckeye's picture

I would have loved it if it were Pittsburgh and will gladly still trade Bell for Hank.

Whosisbrew's picture

As a Giants fan, I resoundingly approve.

@BUCKEYESKI: FFFFFFFFFF YEAH BABY!

Is Lavarr Arrington drunk?

EvanstonBuckeye's picture

Is he awake? Probably. They said he would be the next LT and they were right.

cplunk's picture

No, he does a radio show here in DC and he sounds like that all the time, although usually his English is barely understandable and each sentence contradicts the last one.

Buckeyejason's picture

High^

BUCKEYES BABY!

Squirrel Master's picture

Bengals are getting some freaks. Margus Hunt is ridiculous. Field Goal blocker at the very least!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Buckeyejason's picture

I agree. I like all their picks so far!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

I trust the 49ers..their track record as of late is really good, but Vance Mcdonold? 
It's gonna really suck when Zack Ertz is all pro and we passed on him...

BUCKEYES BABY!

Buckeyejason's picture

Aurthur Brown looked bigger in the Army All American game then he did as a senior in college..weird.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Squirrel Master's picture

Longest wait ever for my chiefs. First overall pick and top 3rd round pick. Man this is taking forever. Watching all these trades and seeing nothing happening. ARGH!
At least some talent is falling. I am stunned that Keenan Allen and Eddie Lacy might fall to us. I would take Lacy to play behind Charles, sure! Just more weapons for Alex Smith to guide. Thankfully all he has to do is get the ball in the play makers hands, not try to win by himself. PLEASE!!!

Randy Gradishar bitches!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Squirrel Master's picture

How can I be so mixed up right now. A buckeye reading for the Broncos, making a pick for Montee Ball. Hate and love right there. 
Ball is decent but I'm not concerned with him against my team. They will make him fumble like OSU did.

Earle's picture

Does Randy Gradishar look like Frank Barrone, or what?

Italics are for emphasis.

Buckeyejason's picture

Ball goes to the Broncos. Lucky dog!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Squirrel Master's picture

LOL. I just realized, no UM players have been picked yet. Probably won't for another 2 rounds. LOL

Denard goes undrafted lol..imagine.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Travice Kelce to Cincy after spending his time at UC and going to Cleveland Heights. This kid has Ohio written all over him. Good luck, a lot of us in this area know the kid and wish him the best. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

 

Squirrel Master's picture

Uh, Kelce went to my Chiefs. Not the bengals.

Ooops misread the college for his NFL team. Woops. Disregard my post above...

Bengals having a NICE draft on paper.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Hoping John Simon goes to the Steelers...Reid Fragel should go late 3rd to early 4th

yrro's picture

Doubt they take a second OLB this draft so high. Their needs at receiver/safety are too big.

EvanstonBuckeye's picture

I wouldn't be surprised to see Steelers grab Keenan Allen

Bucks43201's picture

Agreed. They need a Safety and WR badly.

Tyrone "I love weed" Mathieu is hoping he ends up in a state where smoking pot is legal. 

BUCKEYES BABY!

Bucks43201's picture

Haha...exactly Jason. He wants to get drafted by the Broncos.

Great pick-up by the Browns. McFadden will be very solid.

That's like the 4th man who his 50+ years old who started 'With the XXth pick in the 19.., 2013 NFL draft..'  Nice to see Dick Schafrath representing tOSU up there too.

Buckeyejason's picture

Well..honey vagger can get that green being right by Mexico. Enjoy buddy!

BUCKEYES BABY!

His interview is rather embarrassing man. Don't ya think man? He has put his best foot forward man. He is just misunderstood man.

Buckeyejason's picture

Alot of Buckeyes announcing picks, LOVE IT!

BUCKEYES BABY!

Squirrel Master's picture

Gotta love the Gleason moment for Saints. Guy played his butt off but the desease got the better of him. Good luck to the guy. Made an unreal play that will last for a long time in Saints history.

Wow what a fall for Matt Barkley. He went from top H.S recruit in the country..beat the Bucks in the shoe as a true freshman..Kiper guarenteed that he would be the #1 pick in the draft 4 years ago..had a MONSTER Junior Season..and now still hasn't been picked yet going deep into the 3rd round.

BUCKEYES BABY!

BuckeyeChief's picture

Maybe a good thing for him? he may get a chance to sit and learn without immediate pressure.

 

"Clutch has no boundaries"

Buckeyejason's picture

Calling it right now..he'll be the best QB out of this draft when 10 years go by.

BUCKEYES BABY!

EvanstonBuckeye's picture

Couldn't agree more. His fall has more to do with the Mel Kiper's of the world being in love with their ability to sway drafts more than any perceived inability.

Buckeyejason's picture

Doesn't make much sense. Before all this "get an athlete at QB trend" Barkely would have been a sure first rounder easily. 

BUCKEYES BABY!

Teams this year don't need quarterbacks . It's all about linemen.
