Almost awesome draft for SF!Mallet in the third,wow what a steal!I don't think he will last that long tho.RB is not a need in our early rounds.I we need more defense.I like the FB pick as well. Re unit the players and coaches!Overall a solid B grade for SF.One last thing.SF won't need two QB in this draft either a WR there or RB is fine.

I'd be happy with this draft for the Vikings. Gabbert at 12 is nice and Austin is a great talent that would benefit from playing alongside Allen and Williams.

I missed the second QB, that has been fixed (OLB now), thanks for pointing it out.

Harbaugh likes to run a power west coast offense; a power running game is a big part of that, I think Ryan Williams behind Frank Gore gives SF an excellent 1-2 punch, which will also help to keep Gore healthy. Gore will be 28 before this season and he has had injury problems, Grooming a 20 year old RB behind Gore for the future makes sense to me.

I do think Mallet could well slide to the third, there is a lot of depth at some positions much of which "should" go earlier.

I like the Quinn pick, but I would not pass up Gabbert if he's still on the board at 8.

It was almost a coin flip at that point. I am not as keen on Gabbert as some and think Quinn is a much better prospect.

In the end I expect the Titans will bring in a solid veteran (maybe someone like Orton or Kolb). I think Collins is pretty much just a backup at this point of his career and I don't think either Gabbert or Newton is anywhere near being ready to start yet, which means they will need a veteran of some kind.

I see Carimi and Sherrod as more right tackles, whereas Green Bay's biggest need is at left guard. Watkins is a guy who can be plugged in immediately as a starter, and he is a better guard than either of the other two.

Great Phins draft! Nice work!

If I'm being picky, I'd prefer a combo of Ed Gates and Kendall Hunter in the 3rd and 4th. But Todman and Johnson wouldn't be bad either.

What I'd like to see personally (if the CBA is done before the draft) trade for Palmer and draft Gabbert to develop behind Carson. That would be great imo.

a whole draft of saints picks that arent terrible but are just off the mark iyam. I dont think Martez should be a first rounder, I have trouble with nevis over liuget, I think Sash could happen if there was noone fitting a need available and even though he does fill a need I just dont like Colin McCarthey as a prospect.

Give the Saints:
1 Cameron Heyward
2 Brooks Reed
3a Jurrell Casey
3b Chris Carter

We don't need a guard. Colledge will likely be back yet. If he's not that means that Thompson and McCarthy are comfortable with TJ Lang starting(yikes). We need another tackle for when Clifton retires.

Something like that would be a good move.

Unfortunately we have no concrete idea of the CBA/FA situation; hopefully that is resolved by friday.

Browns Mock = B-

Fairley in the first is good. Big position of need.
Hankerson in second is alright (can't comment on a whole as I know little about him)
TE in third is horrble decision. TE is a strong point for us. I could see a late round TE or UDFA pickup, but needs are too big to pick one in 3rd. Either trade down and grab best projected RT or reach a bit based on where you got them.
LB is pretty good in 4th. Although it needs switched to Matthews.

Overall, not too bad. Guess I'll have to check up on Hankerson, since I've seen him mocked to us quite a bit lately.

3. Buffalo: DT/DE Marcell Dareus, Alabama
2. Buffalo: T Derek Sherrod, Mississippi State

4. Buffalo: TE DJ Williams, Arkansas
6. Cleveland: TE Luke Stocker, Tennessee
19. New York Giants: G/T Ben Ijalana, Villanova
20. Tampa Bay: ILB Kelvin Sheppard, LSU
24. New Orleans: OLB Chris Carter, Fresno State[/list]

3. Buffalo: WR Niles Paul, Nebraska
6. Arizona: QB Colin Kaepernick, Nevada
9. Minnesota: LB Casey Matthews, Oregon

25. Buffalo (from Seattle): RB Roy Helu, Nebraska
28. New England: CB Curtis Marsh, Utah State
30. Chicago: CB Shareece Wright, USC
31. Pittsburgh: QB Ricky Stanzi, Iowa

Great first two picks for the Bills, I love getting Sherrod in the second.
IMO there are better overall players, and better players in need postions than D.J. Williams in the third, although TE is a need I believe. Stocker is a better overall TE IMO and would be a better pick, Ijalana is a guy I like alot and would have outstanding value in the third, Shepard makes a ton of sense and fits the "getting bigger" at LB statements they have made. Chris Carter is one of, if not my most under-rated player in the draft and in the third would provide some nice insurance behind Merriman.
The one postion I cant see Buffalo taking early if at all in this draft is WR. Evans still commanded double teams and drew coverage last year despite having a down year, and despite what people who do not watch the Bills games assume, Johnson had a break out year, Parrish was finally utilized correctly before his injury, Nelson, Jones and Roosevelt all made plays when they saw the field as rookies last year, they drafted Easley in the 4th last year and loved him before the injury, and they have Paul Hubbard on the roster who is very similar to Niles Paul as a reciever. The Bills have already stated that they will need to add a QB at some point in this draft, and their first pick in the 4th is a appropriate spot for them to take a shot on Kaepernick IMO, and even Matthews would be tough to pass up there.
Helu is not a bad pick with their second in the fourth, I have Marsh as a second round value, and they need a corner, I also have Wright and Stanzi higher, and depending on the previous picks would work better IMO as well.

There is absolutely zero chance of AJ Green going to Denver at #2. WR is the strongest position on the team.

They drafted Thomas in the first round last year as well as Eric Decker in the 3rd round, both of whom are good players and fit Denvers offense nicely. Lloyd just went to the pro bowl, they still have Eddie Royal. Deckers recent injury does make the position mildly thin - but all that does is ensure that Gaffney sticks around until they can be sure that he heals properly.

Denver picks Defense at #2, no ands ifs or buts about it. IMO Peterson, Quinn or Dareus are the only three valid options. Anything else is a wasted pick.

Rudolph is a good pick in the 2nd, but I honestly don't see them taking him unless he's still available at 46. Paea, Rahim Moore, and Allen Bailey all have to go before Denver falls back to selecting a TE.

They have the worst defence the league has seen in years, maybe decades. They are switching scheme and they are old at key positions, so they need youth and talent. They have no viable 4-3 DT's on their roster either, so drafting more than one DT high isn't far fetched.

As a Broncos' fan, this mock would make me suicidal.

-There is no way Denver goes offense with their first two picks.

-Nevis and Ballard are both solid players, but they are both UTs.

Just a terrible draft for Denver.

Pats mock isn't very good.
RB in the first round makes no sense since he'll just be part of a three headed RBBC
I can dig Solder. He has potential. He and Vollmer would be our eventual bookends
Wilson has no place in a 34. Bad pick.
Cobb, I can see NE taking WR but I think the DE is a bigger need here
Jones, see Wilson
With Butler and Wilhite disappointing, I could see a cb
Marsh, 2 cb's, I can't see

I'd prefer a mock like this:

1- J.Houston OLB
1- N.Solder OT
2-S.Wisnieski OG
2-C.Luiget DE
3-D.Thomas RB
3-R.Carmichael CB
4-J.Kirkpatrick C

The Cheeseheads will be thrilled to get Carimi, but I don't see him as a good LT or RT in the NFL.

When is someone going to fire up the full, 7-round mocks?

03-09-2011, 06:47 PM
Fairley is good
Hankerson is conceivable... I'd personally prefer Ballard to play strong side end and then move inside to tackle on passing downs
Stocker is possible I guess if they really like the value... the Browns don't need a tight end really... would much, much rather take Ijalana to play right guard or preferably right tackle.
McCarthy is pretty good, though I'd personally prefer Nate Irving or Kendall Hunter

I think you're way, way undervaluing the QBs in this draft. You're absolutely crazy to think Mallett's going to fall to the 3rd.

With 2/3s of the teams drafting in the top 15 are desperate for QBs, they aren't going to fall like that.

I can pretty much guarantee that if either of Newton/Gabbert is still there at #4, the Bengals will pull the trigger.

I disagree, yeah Carimi would have made more sense in the first, but Pouncey wouldn't be bad. Liuget in the second is a dream. Pinkston is a tackle, im not too sure on how good, but a position of need. And Corner in the 4th seems appropriate.

03-10-2011, 03:50 PM
Even if Wilson & Jones could be solid ILBs, neither are likely to supplant Mayo / Spikes . . . that's pretty awful.

Ingram could be in a Pats uniform when all is said and done, but I'd be pretty surprised if it were at 17.

There are too many talented OLB/DE/WR/OL options available for the draft to shake out the way you have it for NE. If it works out this way SWDC will be a Pats-fan free place b/c we'd all kill ourselves.

Why do Jaguars and Raiders keep switching between 16 and 17....if Jaguars have pick 16 in the second round and Dowling is still there he is ours and Jaguars in the 3rd round and Andy Dalton is still on the board he is ours

Because that's how the draft works. Teams tied for record go through all the tie breakers to find initial draft position for the 1st round. Then whoever selects highest in the first round falls to the last spot while everyone else with the same record climbs one step up the ladder. This is why San Fran picks 7th and Tennessee 8th in the first round, then Tennessee picks 7th in the second round while San Fran falls all the way to Detroit's 13th spot - lowest spot on the ladder for 6-10 teams.

There's not a chance the Colts take Pernell McPhee, he's FAR too slow for that to work, but Ahmad Black or Jaiquawn Jarrett there instead. Gates is iffy, and I'd rather have Gilbert there. The other two picks are okay, though Castonzo is one of my least favorite OTs in this draft.
