Titans I might burn things if we don't draft Gregory at 33

Titans Start burning

Vikings Let's hope the Bears don't take Randy Gregory
by survivor4life on May 1, 2015 | 6:16 PM
Colts I'd take Gregory and not look back in the second.
by strandedincarolina on May 1, 2015 | 6:37 PM
Colts I'd take Gregory, run across the stage yelling "SUUUUUCKAAAAAAAAS" and blow raspberries to every other team in the NFL……and not look back. Ever.
by Sir Sci on May 1, 2015 | 6:55 PM
Bears If the Bears think Randy Gregory is sincere about focusing on football how could they not take him?
by beardown360 on May 1, 2015 | 6:56 PM
The Titans are on the clock with the 1st pick of the second round.
Texans Gregory going nuts:
"I didn’t sleep last night because I feel like I let my family and the people who believe in me down, and I’m sorry for that. But I’m going to use this as fuel. The franchise that drafts me won’t have to worry about me off the field, but the teams that didn’t select me will have to worry about me on the field."
Lets draft this psycho and unleash him on the AFC South.

Panthers Giants better not take Gregory!
by Steve O on May 1, 2015 | 7:07 PM
Eagles Giants will probably take Collins or Gregory. Either way it kills me because that is great value.
by Ajsoccer47 on May 1, 2015 | 7:08 PM
Patriots Really hope the Jets don't get Gregory
by dbqp on May 1, 2015 | 7:09 PM
Patriots I'm so pleased by the consistent booing directed at Goodell!
by LWood1213 on May 1, 2015 | 7:11 PM
Bears I think if Gregory is there that he will be the pick
by Dils on May 1, 2015 | 7:12 PM
Bears Gregory would be the steal of the draft
by beardown360 on May 1, 2015 | 7:13 PM
Bears I kind of hope Randy Gregory is there when we pick

Texans "He will stroke you if you come across the middle of the field." - Daniel Jeremiah.
Uh….gross. I don’t know if that’s legal in football.
by Genghis352 on May 1, 2015 | 7:15 PM
49ers If the Raiders get Gregory their pass rush will be NASTY
by hauldog on May 1, 2015 | 7:18 PM

by crappybassist96 on May 1, 2015 | 7:22 PM
Raiders I can't say Ogdiswihuswa. Draft Gregory!!!!!
by bottom wind on May 1, 2015 | 7:23 PM
Falcons What happened that made people decide to go back to investing in running backs? That the Cowboys were good…and then let the running champ go because it was about the line?
by crappybassist96 on May 1, 2015 | 7:27 PM
Giants If they could get Gregory in the 3rd. Two first round players is good. Three would be……..unbelievable.
by geekadjacent on May 1, 2015 | 7:27 PM

by mista0581 on May 1, 2015 | 8:18 PM

by GuyonCouch on May 1, 2015 | 8:30 PM
Steelers I still think we should take Gregory if he is there. Potential is too great.
by hooligan20112 on May 1, 2015 | 8:30 PM
Texans Gregory is a steal in the second round. Let´s be honest.
by Credo MM on May 1, 2015 | 8:30 PM
Eagles We are SO winning the Rose Bowl this year!!!!!!!!!
by Nazgul35 on May 1, 2015 | 8:31 PM
Panthers I heard those rumours about Gregory having some kind of mental issues. Or whatever they were insinuating. But he gives a good interview, and seemed pretty genuine. I hope someone picks him and he proves a bunch of people wrong.
by jojoisthemann on May 1, 2015 | 8:31 PM
Cardinals I'd have to go Gregory if he is there, at this point. He is a bit of an anomaly but he is the pass rusher the Cardinals need and the talent is undeniable. 2nd round makes it safe.
by Cmcinaz on May 1, 2015 | 8:32 PM

by Steve O on May 1, 2015 | 8:37 PM
Chiefs It really pisses me off that everyone thinks they know draft position better than experts.
"He would have been available in the 7th!"
Shut up. You’re dumb.

by ephram on May 1, 2015 | 9:09 PM

Redskins Jerry Jones has locked his son in the closet and is racing to Goodell with the Randy Gregory card
by iOrakpo on May 1, 2015 | 9:13 PM

by Emeritus on May 1, 2015 | 9:16 PM
Texans Well, as much as I would have cheered for Gregory to succeed here, I will have to do that much or more in the opposite direction now that he is a Cowboy. Not that I wish him a bad life or anything….I just don’t want good things to happen in Southern Oklahoma.

by MetalicDrummer on May 1, 2015 | 9:21 PM
Redskins Yeah I don't think that is a good thing for us. Could be a home run pick. Could be a strikeout too, but it’s a scary proposition and I think the former is more likely.
by James Dorsett on May 1, 2015 | 9:22 PM
Redskins This truly has all of the hallmarks of a Jerry Jones’ conspiracy which he’s been paying Gregory under the table to not show up for meetings, coming to the combine @ 198lbs and sickly, and flooding the zone that he’s on lithium for a hybrid chronic disease of schizophrenia / bipolar / OCD mania.
by FromRagsToRiggins on May 1, 2015 | 9:23 PM
Texans I hope he becomes a great pass-rusher who cleans up his act and gets a big contract that he spends responsibly, but maddeningly cannot produce against the Texans
