Tweets from Day 2 of the NFL Draft
By: Corby Yarbrough | 4/29/11, 10:40 PM EDT
The second day of the 2011 NFL Draft is over. With NFL.com streaming the Draft at the top left of my computer screen and Sirius NFL Radio blaring out of the speakers, I was hooked on the second day of the draft — which started way too early at 5 p.m. in the Central time zone and still should be a Saturday-Sunday affair, but I digress. Just as I did for Round 1, I spent the two rounds glued to NFL Network, Sirius NFL Radio, the Internet and Twitter and sent out the first thing that came to my mind in regards of the second day of drafting and how the picks made on Friday will affect the 2011 fantasy football season.
@AthlonCorby Tweets from NFL Draft Second-Third Rounds from the first retweet to Carolina ending the third round...
Completely agree RT @YahooNoise: Biggest fantasy winner in RD 1: Julio Jones. Could be 2011's Mike Williams… (cont) http://deck.ly/~g0VH9
B2B QBs from Bengals and 49ers; Dalton & Kaepernick each have solid WRs in Green and Crabtree and solid OLs #NFLDraft #fantasyfootball
Beanie experiment over already for Cardinals? VaTech stud Ryan Williams could make instant impact #NFLDraft #fantasyfootball
Titans 4-3 D that needs run stoppers goes with a 3-4 LB that tanked it at the Combine? Interesting #NFLDraft
Shiancoe shined 2 years ago and now Kyle Rudolph joins the Vikings. Ponder-Rudolph a nice young connection in 2011 #fantasyfootball?
Titus Young to Lions to join what is becoming a nice, nice DET team on both sides of the ball. #fantasyfootball
RT @RossTuckerNFL At some point you have to wonder if DaQuan Bowers' knee is so bad that maybe he shouldn't even play football. This is crazy. And sad.
Lance Kendricks pairs up w/Bradford, opens up road for SJax and continues tradition of solid Wisconsin TEs in the #NFLDraft #fantasyfootball
Another Wisniewski to the Raiders. Run DMc smiles and maybe Campbell can put together a complete #fantasyfootball season
Bucs loading up DL w/Clayborn & Bowers. Doing what Panthers should've done: Finding a way 2 catch the NFC S QBs #NFLDraft #fantasyfootball
RT @ProFootbalFocus Bucs have now gone D-line with their first 2 picks in back to back drafts.
Already 9th v the pass & 8th v the rush, Giants get even stronger with Austin #NFLDraft #fantasyfootball
NFL No. 1 rushing offense just got the top center on many people's board in Hudson
Third-down back in the second round in Vereen? We will see. Still would be cautious of Patriots backs come #fantasyfootball season
More #fantasyfootball RBBC in Detroit as LeShoure joins Best for the Lions. Should make things better for Stafford, Megatron & Titus Young
As a Flacco dynasty #fantasyfootball owner, thank you Baltimore Ravens for giving him another weapon in Torrey Smith
Maybe Titans will get him and pair him with Locker, CJ and run the Wing-T RT @MattTaliaferro: @AthlonCorby What, no Randall Cobb?!?!?!
Someone has to shine in Cleveland in 2011, why not Greg Little since Hillis will be on Madden cover?
Three defensive picks in a row for Texans. Maybe a #fantasyfootball defense could finally catch up with HOU #fantasyfootball offense. Maybe
Chargers just drafted at 61 (Mouton) the first player not in Gil Brandt or Pat Kirwan's top 100
Thomas follows Pouncey as the Dolphins could be getting serious about this whole running game thing #NFLDraft #fantasyfootball
Steelers stocking both sides of the line is no surprise in that division
Packers offense just became even tougher to draft in #fantasyfootball w/ the addition of Cobb. Getting very Saints-ish up there in Titletown
RT @NFLDraftBible 2-64: #GreenBayPackers: Randall Cobb. Mr. Wildcat. Mr. Versatility. Mr. Everything. The new Hines Ward.
RT @EDSFootball With trades, #Redskins now have 11 picks in Rds 3-7: 79 (3rd); 127 (4th); 144, 146, 152 + 155 (5th); 177 (6th); 213, 217, 224 + 253 (7th).
MBIII done as a Cowboy? Now it's Murray/Jones show. More #fantasyfootball RBBC but Felix hasn't shown ability to be lead RB.
Mallet to the Patriots? Sure, why not.
Vereeen, Ridley, Law Firm & Woodhead for the Patriots. Too many cooks in the kitchen yet again for the NE #fantasyfootball backfield
So what's WAS left w/@QB if McNabb is moved/released? Perhaps same thing their BAL neighbor did a few years ago by getting a Blue Hen
RT @AdamSchefter One front office execcutive said last week that Ryan Mallett was the top-rated quarterback on the Patriots draft board.
1st thing out of Tim Ryan, Gil Brandt, Pat Kirwan's mouths is Titans latest pick DT Casey should've stayed at USC another year
Rams stock up WR corps w/ Boise's Pettis. Building up a solid offense in a weak division. Very #fantasyfootball friendly #NFLDraft thus far
Hankerson a good pairing with Armstrong and S. Moss in WAS ... if there is a QB there to get them the ball #fantasyfootball
Vincent Brown gets to stay in San Diego and join Floyd, VJax (maybe), Rivers and Mathews. Yes, please #fantasyfootball
RT@ WesBunting Still shocked #Hampton DL Kenrick Ellis has not come off the board yet #NFLDRAFT
RT @Bryan_Fontaine There are tons of values at TE to be had at the top of Day 3: Virgil Green, Luke Stocker, DJ Williams, Jordan Cameron, Julius Thomas
NFL Radio crew 2 Mallet on 40-yd dash vs. Brady: "That's all y'all wanna talk about. We don't run, we throw the ball; we're quarterbacks."
RT @WesBunting Colts land DT who plays with BAD intentions | National Football Post http://t.co/Xu65rYZ via @wesbunting
Hampton Bigdog fills gap that Jenkins leaves on the Jets DL
Grant/Starks and now speedster Alex Green from Hawaii joins the Packers backfield.
Panthers bookend 3rd rd w/ D-linemen. Smart move to try & slow down solid QBs in NFC S. See if it pays off 2x in 3rd instead of once in 1st
