    I would love to see him in Houston along with Warmack, Lacy, Millner, Nico, et al.

    15 SEC players in the first round! Goodness gracious

    6 - Milliner
    10 - Warmack (a bit lower than some other sites)
    22 - Lacy
    25 - Flucker
    32 - Williams
    With a name like Flucker... How can he miss?

    Barrett will almost certainly go in the 1st round due to the fact he can play multiple positions among other obvious talents.

    Id say the cant miss player we have in the draft is warmack. Imo he will start whete ever he plays i believe he is that good. Milner is up there too. Lacy and b jones will be scrutinized closely on the medical side and it could hurt them a little. Jones has injury prone feet and ankles. If you got a bad wheel you cant go. Lacy he has seldom been injury free but nothing cronic. Jones feet could be a cronic thing that will hurt him some.

    I think by the time the draft gets here AT LEAST 1 of the 32 GMs is gonna want to snatch him up in the first round. The guy is too good, too smart, and way too classy to not be. JMHO

    I hope to my Packers. With a running game along with Rodgers the Pack will be unstoppable! Agree he is a 1st rounder.

    All the above could potentially be 1st rounders, but early second round isnt too shabby, either.

    as a falcons fan I hope not. Love EL and would be happy to have him on the team but Atl need defensive players much more than RB's

    Barrett is easily my favorite player from this team, and I will root for him no matter where he goes (even the Cowboys, but I'll be rooting against the rest of the team). That said, I don't see anyone taking Barrett in the first round. NFL staffs always seem to fall in love with measurables, and IIRC, Jones will be too physically limited before the draft to give any "surprising" workouts. Some may already be skittish about his foot, and if he doesn't get a shot to prove people he's more athletic than they currently believe, I don't see him sneaking into the first round.

    Don't get me wrong, he will be an absolute steal to the team who finally selects him, and can be a pro-bowl caliber guard or center. I just don't think there will be enough "buzz" about him to go higher than mid 2nd round.

    What I do know is that it will be very interesting to see where Barrett goes. The debate between 1st or 2nd round will certainly continue.

    I'm not really going along with his foot or other injuries being a huge problem for him. Everyone gets banged up in the NFL - dudes are just too big and too fast not to. What's mentionable is that the guy plays through pain while still performing at a high level.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see him fall into the second round. Some aren't convinced he can play tackle in the NFL, and honestly the intelligence aspect works against players sometimes with GM's and scouts. The foot injury won't help matters, either, even though it's not expected to be a long-term issue.
