    SI.com: Peter King draft notes

    • The top 10 of one team not in the top 10, though I do not know the order: Two quarterbacks (Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles), four tackles (Greg Robinson, Jake Matthews, Taylor Lewan, Zack Martin), one defensive tackle (Aaron Donald), two pass-rushers (Jadeveon Clowney, Khalil Mack), one wideout (Sammy Watkins).


    • Want a darkhorse for Carolina at 28—or, if the Panthers are lucky and he falls to 60? Guard-tackle Joel Bitonio of Nevada. Coach Ron Rivera went to Reno to meet him and came away impressed, I’m told.

    There's a nice piece on Earl Morrall in the article, one of the Dolphins all-time greats on and off the field.

    [LIST]
    Anyone notice that his list of 10 included only 1 WR and no TE. One of the strengths of this Draft is the number of really good WRs with 1st round grade - I have heard as many as 7 (Watkins, Evans, Lee, Beckham, Cooks, Benjamin, etc not to mention Ebron). If Peter King's anonymous GM is correct, this means that some extremely good WR/TE playmakers will be available when we pick.

    Zach Martin and Blake Bortles are the two guys there that I don't have in my top 10.

    King thinks Manziel is the best QB in this class when in actual fact he will be one of the biggest busts in draft history.

    ^ ^ guess we'll see. I don't think he'll be in the league in two years time. Know you like him and clearly we have a difference of opinion on him. As far as I'm concerned when Canton opens the "All-time Busts" wing, if Manziel goes top 5 in this draft he will get in on the first ballot.
