by EastonAssassin63 on Apr 30, 2015 | 10:54 PM
49ers Pray for Byron Jones to still be around at 2/14/46. Maybe he can salvage this freaking mess
by gtflded72 on Apr 30, 2015 | 10:54 PM
Eagles Well, we'd better hope that Byron Jones is going to suck.

Eagles They showed Jones and Dallas is up….. piss off Jerruh
by WereWolff on Apr 30, 2015 | 10:55 PM
Buccaneers If this were the Old Dallas I think they would take a crazy pick, but they are probably going to pick smart surprisingly
by DeLaNegro on Apr 30, 2015 | 10:57 PM

by YMN on Apr 30, 2015 | 11:01 PM
Buccaneers Thats a good pick for Dallas. They must be locking Jerry Jones in a room with no phones or something cause they’re starting to pick better.

by Bored25 on Apr 30, 2015 | 11:06 PM
Eagles Great. We let Dallas draft the super athletic DB so we can get another possession receiver Maclin 2.0. Sweet

Seahawks Great pick. Super value. I believe they wanted an RB, but in my opinion they went "best value" here
by NearlyFreaky on Apr 30, 2015 | 11:13 PM
Eagles Darn it Byron Jones is gone to the freaking Cowboys. We better move up and get Eric Rowe in the second or we are SOL
