It seems like Bengals fans hate every mock draft. But the truth is the Carson Palmer situation is not going to have a pretty ending so they have to get a QB. I don't like Newton either, but the pick is very likely.

No every Bengals Fan hate Cam Newton. Newton is not a West Coast QB and it is a likely pick does not mean Bengal Fans have to like it. But just because they need a QB they dont have to take 1 in the 1st they could take 1 in 2nd or 3rd or they dont have to take one at all if they like Dan Lefevour enough.

No thanks. No reason to trade up for another HB. Especially not giving up a 3rd to move up 7 spots, that's ridiculous.

And would much rather have Hayward or Wilkerson in the first. FYI, you have Wilkerson going twice.

Dang, I thought I changed that pick. It was supposed to be Wisniewski, I'll make the change. Thanks.

Like the trades, kind of slick.

Warming to Ponder with Jake gone, had they not traded that 3rd for Whitehurst i could have seen them moving up but not now. Way to go Pete.

Yeah, trading a 3rd round pick to a guy who had never thrown a pass in the NFL is one of the dumbest moves I've ever seen.

Technically none of the rookies have thrown one either but Whitehurst to me is nothing more than a career backup.

Da'Quan Bowers is a good pick. But if Jake Locker is going to go in the mid first, I don't see him getting past the Vikes. Also can't see them moving down in the 2nd either when they have Aaron Williams & Kyle Rudolph still on the board.

The Vikings may be very high on Locker. But I'd be willing to bet that they have Bowers a lot higher than Locker on their big board (possibly 10-15 spots higher). Teams usually do not stray that far from their rankings.

While I am sure Bowers is very high on their board DE really isn't a huge need. QB need trumps all other positions.

the Rams will not trade up wif Washington for Julio, there just gonna sit there at #14 and take the BPA on their board

Thank you for the prediction Nostradamus. The truth is nobody knows for sure what will happen. But here is how I see it. St. Louis has one of the bottom five receiving corps in the league. They have to give Bradford more weapons if he is going to progress. And if they can get Jones, who will instantly be his best weapon, for just a third round pick, I don't see why they wouldn't jump on that.

Pats draft:
Castonzo - I don't think they'll take an OT at 17 but I suppose it could happen.

Houston - I would be shocked if they traded up to 21 to draft Houston. I don't think they, or anyone else, would have him rated that highly.

Wisniewski - A realistic pick. I like this one.

Cobb - Here we go again with Cobb. Why does everyone mock Cobb to the Pats? It makes no sense.

I'm not a big fan of Ballard at 26, but it isn't that bad. Reed would probably be better. Hankerson is always great in the second.

I think people do have Houston rated that high. A lot of Kansas City fans want him at that spot and I've seen Saints fans ask for him three spots later. And what is your issue with Cobb. Receiver is obviously a need for the Patriots and I think he is the best one available. Will he ever be a number one? Doubtful. But Welker is likely gone soon (he'll cost too much to keep) and I think Cobb is the type of guy to replace him.

I admit that Ballard is a little high, but every year a guy sneaks into the first round and I have been hearing a lot of talk about Ballard being that guy.

I'll take those 2 Packers picks, B+.

You're right about the Bengals. I feel bad for their fans, but that team is a total mess, and I don't blame Palmer for escaping that s*****e.

Now I do love the area there in Cinci and suburbs, but that team is a total disgrace thanks to their owner and I believe Carson 100% that he's done with that Mickey Mouse organization.

I realize this, but the Ravens never seem to be the team that takes those kinds of players (outside of Flacco). Reed would probably fall under that category too though, but he's just a favorite of mine :).

Honestly not a fan of this Pats mock. Castonzo's ok and I suppose could be targetted but I don't like the value.

I highly doubt the Pats trade up for Houston. They are currently sitting at 28 and you have them trading to 21. The players available after 21 who they may take at 28 if they fell without trading up are Houston, Jimmy Smith(unlikely), Christian Ballard, Allen Bailey, Mike Pouncey, Muhammad Wilkerson, Cameron Heyward, Brooks Reed, Akeem Ayers, Martez Wilson, Stefan Wisniewski Sam Acho, Jabaal Sheard, Aaron Williams etc. I would be surprised if Houston wasn't valued near the bottom of that list so they likelihood they trade up for him is very slim.

In the second Wisniewski is solid and a definite need so thats ok.

Really not a fan of the Cobb pick. I think realistically the Pats options at WR early are limited to AJ Green, Julio Jones and Leonard Hankerson. I would much prefer someone like Curtis Brown or even Ras-I Dowling as he would be a versatile option in the defensive backfield.

I thought about Hankerson because I think he is a slightly better player. But I went with Jernigan because he offers more of a change of pace to Dwayne Bowe. With that said, I'm not sure how much different he is from McCluster, so maybe Hankerson would be a better pick. I'll take that into consideration next time.

Nicely done for for SF tho second round might be too high for Dalton.

jrdrylie
03-25-2011, 09:00 AM
While I'm not sure Dalton is worth a 2nd round pick, I think that is where he ends up. He is a smart guy with some mobility so I think he is a guy that Harbaugh might target. But that is why I had San Francisco trade down a bit. It's a little better value and adds another 3rd round pick (possibly on a guy like Davon House or Johnny Patrick)

Why do you think it Welker is "likely gone soon"? Do you know something we don't know? The Pats already have too many slot receivers. They already have too many receivers that are projects and need time to develop. They don't need another one. I know Mayock has Cobb as his number five receiver, but Mayock is wrong a lot. Cobb isn't even one of the top 15 receivers in this draft because he's just another one of those college players that plays the "ATH" position and so NFL teams try to make a WR out of him. Just trying to give you some constructive criticism on the mock. Listen to anyone who follows the Pats closely and they will tell you the Pats picking Cobb is extremely unlikely.

Besides that, it may seem obvious to you that WR is a need for the Pats, but because of how many of them they already have on the roster, most of us don't think they will even take a WR early unless a stud like Jones falls to them. Taking the best WR available just to fit a need isn't the way BB works. If he takes a WR early, and that's a huge IF, then he is going to be looking for a certain type of WR, and Cobb isn't that type of WR. Personally I will be surprised if they take a WR before round 4 if they even take one at all.

jrdrylie

I think Welker will be gone soon because when he hits free agency, some team is going to look at his three 100 reception 1100 yard seasons and think he is a number one receiver and throw $8 million a year his way and i doubt the Patriots match it.
