What you really need to know going into tonights NFL Draft

Ok enough with the subterfuge-teams trying to out smart each other and coaches trying to talk owners and GMs into their guy or avoiding a bust on their watch. The past few months of trash talking, boasting, bravado and Pro Days have come to an end. 
Tonight at 8 p.m. ET the NFL Commissioner will start the 2014 NFL Draft. 

Here is what you need to know:

Fantasy wise there are 7 QBs and 7 RBs who should go in the first 3 rounds and thus you need to worry about (unless in a dynasty league and then you have another 6 QBs and twice that in RBs who should be drafted in the last 4 rounds). I think 4 QBs and no RBs go in the first round. 2 more QBs and the first 3 RBs go in round 2.

WR is deep with 35 receivers-12 of whom could go in the first two rounds. Watch these guys for impact in 2014.

TE is not so deep. 4-5 could go in the first 3 rounds (Eric Ebron is a shoo-in for first round and maybe Seferian-Jenkins too) and another 10 after that. 

Here are my top at each FF Position

1 Blake Bortles-1st rd
2 Terry Bridgewater-1st rd
3 Johnny Manziel-could be first QB off board
4 Derek Carr-late 1st rd maybe AZ
5 Jimmy Garoppolo-2nd rd
Tom Savage-2nd rd
7 A.J. McCarron-huge drop off to A.J.
8 Logan Thomas

1 Carlos Hyde-early 2nd
2 Tre Mason-2nd rd
3 Bishop Sankey-late 2nd
4 Jeremy Hill-3rd
5 Andre Williams-3rd rd
6 Terrance West-late 3rd
7 Ka'Deem Cary-

1 Sammy Watkins-Top 5 Pick
2 Mike Evans-Top 10 Pick
Marqise Lee-Top 20 Pick
4  Odell Beckham Jr-Top 20
Brandin Cooks-1st rd

7  Donte Moncrief-2nd rd
Allen Robinson-2nd rd
9 Jordan Mathews-2nd rd
10 Jarvis Landry-2nd rd
11 Davante Adams-2nd rd
12  Cody Latimer-3rd rd

1 Eric Ebron-mid first rounder
2 Austin Seferian-Jenkins-late first round. Blocks and is tall with BB skills-think Tony Gonzlaez
3 Jace Amaro-early second round. This guy is just a big WR 
4 Troy Niklas-3rd rd
