Cam Newton: Not like it was a surprise to see him go No. 1 overall or anything, but now he gets his wish, and gets to become an entertainer and an icon in a city that needs reviving.
Von Miller: Everyone knew he could go high, but it was still surprising seeing him at No. 2. It's a great deal for both sides and he could be really dangerous in John Fox's scheme. He's produced a few good linebackers in his day.
Cleveland Browns: Holy freaking haul, Batman. The Browns could have really used a field-stretching wide receiver like Julio Jones (and Colt McCoy wanted one), but maybe Atlanta knew that, and it's why they gave up FIVE picks for the rights to grab Jones.
Nick Fairley: He fell, as everyone predicted. But as almost no one predicted (except Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News) he fell to the Lions. Which means unless he's traded, he'll never see a double team in his life playing next to Ndamukong Suh.
New Orleans Saints: Like the aggressiveness to come back and get Mark Ingram. Adios, Reggie Bush.
Detroit Lions: See above. They needed a cornerback, but my goodness their defensive line is going to be absolutely ridiculous. Jim Schwartz can coach Fairley up and Suh can mentor him.
Indianapolis Colts: Bill Polian didn't have to do any magic. All he had to do was sit back and wait and let the tackle he needs to protect Peyton Manning's final years fall on down.
Houston Texans: I can definitely see why they like JJ Watt. He's quite good. But Prince Amakamura was on the board and the Texans secondary makes swiss cheese look opaque. How they decided to pass on him is beyond me.
Carolina Panthers: Newton's either a home run or a total bust. There's no in-between with him. And that makes the pick difficult.
Atlanta Falcons: They gave up way too much in order to jump up and get Julio Jones. He's not a quarterback who changes every play with his presence, even though he'll help.
Minnesota Vikings: They drafted Christian Ponder ... because he helps them now? And they did it at the 12-spot?
Tennessee Titans: Jake Locker was a reach. Plain and simple.
Carson Palmer: Bluff. Called. (For now at least -- Andy Dalton in the second could change that.)
San Francisco 49ers: Unless they are actually trading for Kevin Kolb, anyway.
Da'Quan Bowers: Unless he magically got drafted and I missed that.
Chicago Bears: Just for causing the Ravens to miss their pick. For shame, Jerry Angelo.
