21. Cleveland: Taylor; 22. Indy: Castanzo; 23. Philadelphia: Watkins; 24. New Orleans: Jordan

Cleveland, which started out at No. 6 and traded back to No. 27, jumped up to No. 21 to select Baylor defensive tackle Phil Taylor.

Taylor is a classic 340-pound nose tackle going to a team which us switching from a 3-4 to a 4-3. Huh?

Guessing the call to Anthony Castanzo was placed by the Indianapolis official that actually made the pick _ quarterback Peyton Manning. He’d had enough of Tony Ugoh.

Castanzo, at No. 22, is the first left tackle selected. Usually a few left tackles are gone by this point. Tyron Smith, taken No. 9, was a right tackle at USC and is expected to play that position in Dallas.

Baylor guard Danny Watkins gets the call from Andy Reid. It’s a tossup as to which one weighs more. Watkins, like Cal’s Aaron Rodgers, went to Butte College.

Speaking of Cal, Cameron Jordan went a later-than-expected No. 24 to New Orleans, a team in need of a pass rush. A life of the party guy, Jordan is going to the ultimate party city.

  • bcz24

    Ingram to the Jets?

  • EMRaiders

    See how pissssed off the NFL guys were on the phone? And how Goodell looked when he made the announcement of the KC pick?

    Only Al can make someone look that way. lol…

  • bcz24

    Rather have a multi-time pro bowler and team leader than a project tackle. Seymour for sure. I think NE blew it. They traded the 28th pick anyways.

  • NE traded the pick….Raiders????

  • El Tato


  • EMRaiders

    OH! that was Al’s guy! I guess the trade didn’t happen.

  • bcz24

    I think if we traded it up it would have been for Jimmy Smith… dont think its us, but ya never know what uncle al is doing

  • Dakota

    That would be funny if Al traded up for Smith and Balt took him right now lol.

    Really? You had the Saints trading up for Ingram?

  • TerrapinRaider

    with the B’more fiasco …was the Davis screwing around? Strange.

  • SNAP…..it looks like New Orleans! SNAP!!

  • YoungAmerican

    Apparently they were trying to work out a trade with the Bears, and the Bears backed out last minute.

  • JB

    We really don’t have anything/anybody to trade other than 2012 draft picks. I don’t see AD moving up. Just draft at least 3 OL. The good news is that this draft is heavy with O & D linemen. The Wiz, if he’s the right guy will be available in the third. Marcus Cannon may be available in the 4th or 5th. So who is our #2 pick?
