We all love to talk about how Eric Berry is a monster. I love him, you love him, your mother loves him (albeit for other reasons, but I digress)...we all know that Eric Berry is a beast of a player. Well, one of the hot rumors flying around Indianapolis is that not only will Berry fall out of the Top 3, but he will fall out of the top 7 picks. His personal stock has never fallen, but there is simply a growing sense that high-pick safties are simply never as good as they seem. Our most recent examples: Donte Whitner, Michael Huff, and LaRon Landry. Not exactly an allstar group.... We will see Berry go off the board in the 8-12 range, at highest. Book it.

Another highly regarded safety, Earl Thomas, has a big time rumor flying about him as well. All the talk is the possibility of Earl moving to CB in the NFL. This is because of his less-than-amazing size at 5'10, 190 and his great anticipation, route reading, and ball skills. Some are even calling him, "The next Asante Samuel". For this reason, his stock is skyrocketing, with a possibility to surpass Eric Berry.
Also, I was recently directed to this clip (the first soundbite)
Yes, that is our Deity Adam Schefter telling it like it is: Sam Bradford will go #1 overall. If you don't agree with Shefter....then you may leave.
[Bow down my minions! Your master has had a vision...and it brings a douchey snicker to his face.]
But seriously, you can leave if you don't hang off of every syllable that comes out of his enlightened mouth.
