This morning NFL Mocks and WTFP got an opportunity to be apart of the TXN Sports NFL Draft conference call. There were some big names Involved in this call, including: former Bengals QB, Boomer Esiason, Showtime & CBS analyst, Cris Colinsworth, Raider great, Howie Long, and former Giants Quarterback, Phil Simms. There was a lot of focus on the first and second round quarterbacks. We transcribed some of their quotes, so we could provide them to you. Check them out after the jump.

WTFP Transcriptions:

  • Cris Collinsworth: “I wouldn’t take any of the Quarterbacks in the top 10”
  • Cris Collinsworth: “If you have a lot of “Rich Bums” in your locker room, you’ve got major issues as a team.”
  • Boomer Esiason: “Carson Palmer has checked out of the Cincinnati hotel…I feel for him.”
  • Cris Collinsworth: “Von Miller is the most talented guy in this draft.”
  • Cris Colinsworth: “Nick Fairley is one of those edgy Warren Sapp kind of guys you’d love to have on your team.”
  • Howie Long: “If I had to pick between Dareus and Faireley, I’m going Dareus.”
  • Boomer Esiason: “I think there is a possibility that 6 QB’s can go in round 1…Teams are looking for that next Brady”
  • Howie Long: “I think teams are going to reach for Quarterbacks and Tackles in the first round.”
  • Howie Long: “I think New England will be a good fit for Mark Ingram.”
  • Cris Collinsworth: “I haven’t talked to anyone who likes Julio Jones better than AJ Green. Green is phenomenal.”
  • Cris Collinsworth: “Julio Jones and AJ Green are at a dead heat for me.”

NFL Mocks Transcriptions:

  • Cris Collinsworth: “If I had to take a QB in the top 10, I would take Gabbert. Wouldn’t take any if I didn’t have to.”
  • Boomer Esiason: :Gabbert would be good fit for the Bengals, but will have to be a better player than advertised b/c of lack of support.”
  • Howie Long: “The rookie cap will cut numbers like Sam Bradford’s pretty short.”
  • Howie Long: “There aren’t any Sam Bradford’s out there right now. There may be one in middle school right now.”
  • Cris Collinsworth: “Wouldn’t surprise me if 75% of first round goes to defense.”
  • Cris Collinsworth: “I personally think Von Miller is the most talented player in this draft…Marcell Dareus probably the highest pick.”
  • Cris Collinsworth: “If you like quarterbacks, the draft is going to be boring for you to watch.”
  • Howie Long: “There are no Ndamukong Suh’s in this draft, but if I had to pick one of these guys to trust, I’m calling M. Dareus.”
  • Cris Collinsworth: “You’re essentially going to get some half-price quarterbacks in the first round.”
  • Boomer Esiason: “No disrespect to Mark Ingram, but the RB position has been De-emphasized.”
  • Cris Collinsworth: “AJ Green is phenomenal. Everything you could possibly want.”
