I'd be happy with the first two Bears picks but if Johnny Patrick is there in the 3rd he's a no brainer.

03-11-2011, 11:34 AM
acceptable but underwhelming saints draft

03-11-2011, 11:35 AM
now THAT is a Denver draft that I can live with. Addresses all of our pressing needs with impact players and lands us the most talented player in the draft. Thats what I'm talking about!

Whoever drafted for Denver in this mock - job well done.

03-11-2011, 11:42 AM
I absolutely hate taking Jordan at 17. Give us JJ Watt instead and that is one fine Patriots draft.

03-11-2011, 11:59 AM
I am disappointed with whoever did the Ravens draft. The first two picks are terrible.

03-11-2011, 12:19 PM
Solid KC mock. Kinda meh on two WRs, but it is a position of major need. I love the Phil Taylor pick.

03-11-2011, 12:23 PM
I do not like the Saints draft. I honestly do not believe that this draft would make us better.

We have Sedrick Ellis so there's no need for Stephen Paea.

We have Jonathan Vilma so there's certainly no need for Greg Jones.

There are better players on the board than Pernell McPhee.

I am not totally against Daniel Thomas but we have Chris Ivory and I think there are other areas of need we could address here.

I would have taken Cameron Heyward in the first, Brooks Reed in the second, Kenrick Ellis with the first pick in the third and I guess we can keep Thomas with the second pick though you could make a case for another linebacker or safety.

03-11-2011, 01:23 PM
Burton in the second and IMO that would be a solid draft.

03-11-2011, 01:54 PM
I don't hate Jags mock...but I don't love it either...for one I know Gabbert will most likely be gone before that

03-11-2011, 03:43 PM
Nice Pats mock

03-11-2011, 04:06 PM
Terrible value on both of the Vikings picks.

03-11-2011, 04:16 PM
Seriously? That is one awful mock for the Ravens. The first 2 picks are absolutely horrible.

There are 5-6 players selected in the 10 picks after Aaron Williams that would be far better players. Williams isnt even BPA at his own position there, let alone BPA overall.

Beal in the 2nd? He's more like a 5th rounder after he didnt show anything at the Senior Bowl or the Combine drills or running a 5.13 40. Brooks Reed is a far better pick there.

Gates is the only good pick in this mock.

picture perfect dallas draft

03-11-2011, 05:48 PM
Can't say I'm shocked with the Miami picks, but they are good ones regardless.

03-11-2011, 05:52 PM
Switch the 32nd and 33rd pick and I'd be a happier Packers fan.

03-12-2011, 10:06 AM
I really like your Bucs mock. I'm hoping that the Bucs go DE in 2 out of the first 3 rounds, and landing Houston and Ballard would be great.

I like Kendall Hunter, so although I wouldn't mind the pick, I don't see the Bucs drafting a RB that early. I think ideally, LB should be the pick there, but most of the top LB's are already gone. Colin McCarthy is probably a more realistic pick there.

Good job overall.

03-12-2011, 12:08 PM
Newton to SF won't ever happen so take a CB or DE there and good draft.I agree with Burton from tx in the second.

03-12-2011, 03:09 PM
We picked Mallett > Gabbert?


03-13-2011, 10:29 AM
7. San Francisco - Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
45. San Francisco - Jon Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh
76. San Fransisco - Mark Herzlich, OLB, BC

Not much of a fan of this at all, to be honest.

Newton is a possibility but I'm not convinced of how he fits into a West Coast offense. I'd rather select Prince Amukamara or Aldon Smith instead. And since WR is mocked next round, Julio Jones should've come into play here.

Baldwin is tremendous value in the 2nd and as a Pitt homer, I have alot of love for him. Unfortunately, his route running is a terrible fit for a Harbaugh offense. If you wanted a WR at this point, Leonard Hankerson would make more sense. Other players that should be considered based on need and availability would've been Brandon Burton or Dontay Moch.

As for Herzlich, I just don't see it. As sad as it is to say, I no longer feel he has the athletic ability necessary to be a force as a 3-4 OLB. His best fit in a 3-4 would be at ILB and the 49ers won't likely target that position very early, if at all. Pretty much the entire board of players selected following Herzlich have better value to the 49ers in my opinion.

03-13-2011, 01:44 PM
11. Houston - Aldon Smith, OLB, Missouri
42. Houston - Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State
73. Houston - Curtis Brown, CB, Texas

As a Texans fan I would be VERY happy with that in the first 3 rounds...

03-13-2011, 01:49 PM
I would gladly take the Titans draft in real life. Fairley in the first then Locker in the second. Sign me up

03-13-2011, 01:52 PM
I'd be happy with that Denver draft.

03-13-2011, 06:24 PM
1. Tyron Smith > Costanzo
2. Good pick
3. J. Patrick here

03-13-2011, 07:15 PM
I would gladly take the Titans draft in real life. Fairley in the first then Locker in the second. Sign me up

I drafted the Titans, was vvvvvery happy with the results.

Fairley is prefect, we can move JJ to DE if needed now.
Locker could be a starter game 1, and fixes our QB problems (hopefully).
McDaniel hopefully replaces Chris Hope(less).

nice pats draft

03-14-2011, 05:54 PM
I'd like to nominate you for President! If the PATS came away from the draft with those players you might as well start measuring them for rings now! I am going to frame this draft as the greatest work of art since...well, since ever!

03-14-2011, 06:47 PM
The eagles need to address OL sometime in the first 3 rounds, I do like all the players we were given, though.

03-15-2011, 04:27 PM
Great PATS draft! Really great!!!
