So, if you missed it, Round One of the NFL Draft happened. I was around for the most part, but 39 hours for 30 picks seems egregious, even for NFL standards. You have no idea how long I spent trying to select the auto-draft option. As with any NFL draft, there were plenty of derpy moves, surprisingly competent selections, and then there was the Browns being the Browns and the Jaguars being the Jaguars, which are always unique categories in themselves. Some teams just have a destiny.

After the Browns, showing us a breath of fresh air by killing the Bills in a trade (moving Buffalo five spots north for the not-so-cheap price of a first and fourth rounder next year for Sammy Watkins, giving me flashes of Julio Jones), they immediately returned to the factory of sadness we’ve come to know and love by trading their first rounder and fifth rounder to move up one spot to select Justin Gilbert. Yes, they moved up one spot to take a cornerback. One thing’s for sure, Johnny Manziel applauded the sh*t out of that pick, not realizing that the Browns would select him later at the 22nd spot. (Word is, the Cowboys front office built a replica of their real draft room and stuck Jerry Jones in there with no telephone.) To be honest, I’m not really sure who to feel sorry for more here… Manziel or Cleveland. Let’s see what Johnny Football had to say about it: “This feels like the place I was meant to be…” LOL.

Then, of course, there’s the Jaguars and drafting something called Blake Bortles. Yep, the consensus third best quarterback in the draft is now your top drafted quarterback in 2014. The good news is that this pick is so threatening to Florida, you can legally shoot him. Beyond that, the Cowboys still don’t know what a safety is, the Jets continue their ef offense strategy, and the Raiders actually made a competent pick. CRAZY, I KNOW. I would have sworn they had Usain Bolt at the top of their board.

As the NFL Draft pushes forward for the next five weeks due to Roger Goodell’s penchant for drawn out exuberance with any and all NFL events… (Five years from now, it’ll be a pick a day with the draft lasting the entire off-season.) Regardless, we’ll be churning out draft content next week for all of you that still can’t believe that football is three months away. THREE  MONTHS AWAY. Sigh.

So we’ll see you next week for the official unofficial Razzball NFL Draft something thingamajig recap review. Word.

    I like the browns moves, managing to land the top CB and the highest ceiling QB….dont think they needed to move up one pick to get gilbert, plenty of other talented guys that would still be there if min did take him. Thought the bills trade was good for both sides…the bills have been notoriously terrible, but almost never terrible enough inside the top 5 except when they got Dareus. Since the bills are getting a new owner they went all-in for this years draft(‘fingers crossed EJ pans out’). They havent had a No.1 type WR since Moulds, and Watkins is basically harvin minus the injury history. Hope that this is the year the bills finally make the playoffs #BillsMafia

      @Big League Choo: It was a mix of good and bad. I thought the Bills gave up way too much… not sure they need a guy that E.J. Manuel can overthrow 20 yards to.

      That being said, I would support the Bills in the play-offs.

        @Jay: Giving up their first rounder next year to the Browns is a huge deal. Sets the Browns to really back up this years draft and get more out of it as well. They have so much ammo coming into these next two rounds it’ll be interesting to see what they do with them. They go for a WR right now with the 3rd pick of the second round. Just not sure which one they go with.

    I know its baseball season, but why arent ppl fired up about their teams first round….Vikings fans get no.1 rated qb headed into the 2013 college season and a stud lb. Browns get manziel and improve their secondary. Cant wait for razzteam to come to buffalo 32in32in32 def grabbing Watkins in one of my drafts.

      @Big League Choo: I’m sure it’ll get crowded around all-star break for baseball. After the draft… it’s a long three months.
