Day one of the Draft

As usual, there were some curious moves on the first day of the draft. I thought the Giants gave up too much for Eli Manning, especially considering he was not a consensus #1. If Rivers develops, the Chargers made a great move. The Cowboys dealing down and missing out on the top RBs was surprising, while Buffalo's move to sacrifice a first rounder next year to draft a QB makes me wonder if this year will be Drew Bledsoe's last. The Patriots were likely stunned to see Wilfork still there at 21 - but taking TE Ben Watson at 32 seems like a reach; I wonder if they could have traded down a few spots.

On the plus side, the Lions were able to get both a top WR and a RB, while the Raiders abandoned their recent history of curious picks by solidifying their corps of linemen - not that flashy, but essential to re-work that team.
