Trades -- just assume they work out

- St. Louis trades #14 and whatever else to Cleveland for #6

- Tampa Bay trades #20 and whatever else to Washington for #10

- Philadelphia trades #23 and whatever else to Miami for #15

- Cincinnati trades #35 and whatever else to New England for #28

2011 NFL Draft

1. Carolina Panthers - - Cam Newton // Quarterback // Auburn
- Looking like a lock now.

2. Denver Broncos - - Marcell Dareus // Defensive Tackle // Alabama
- I think the team is stuck between Dareus and Peterson. With Bailey still on the roster and not a single notable tackle, Dareus is the pick.

3. Buffalo Bills - - Patrick Peterson // Defensive Back // Louisiana State
- I'm sticking with this pick. Buffalo never ceases to amaze me in the draft and Peterson will be the pick.

4. Cincinnati Bengals - - A.J. Green // Wide Receiver // Georgia
- I'm going with the consensus here and switching the pick to Green, although I still think Julio Jones could be the guy.

5. Arizona Cardinals - - Von Miller // Outside Linebacker // Texas A&M
- It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes to get this pick in.

6. St. Louis Rams (from Cleveland) - - Julio Jones // Wide Receiver // Alabama
- The team is dying to get Julio and I think they'll do anything to get him.

7. San Francisco 49ers - - Blaine Gabbert // Quarterback // Missouri
- This is a strange pick, but I think in the end, Harbaugh and company will pick Gabbert.

8. Tennessee Titans - - Nick Fairley // Defensive Tackle // Auburn
- It's been reported that the team has decided between Dalton and Fairley with the Tiger edging out the victory, that's if he's still there.

9. Dallas Cowboys - - Robert Quinn // Defensive End // North Carolina
- The talk of Tyron Smith to the Cowboys is over due to Jerry Jones essentially saying they're not drafting a tackle. Besides, with Quinn on the board, who would?

10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from Washington) - - Aldon Smith // Defensive End // Missouri
- I'm having a sneaking feeling Tampa Bay is gonna be a surprise team to trade up and getting Smith is an exceptional move.

11. Houston Texans - - Prince Amukamara // Cornerback // Nebraska
- The Texans strike out completely without getting either Miller, Peterson or Aldon Smith but Amukamara is a future All Pro corner.

12. Minnesota Vikings - - Cameron Jordan // Defensive End // California
- Jordan isn't the great edge rusher but he is more than solid in all aspects and is a great building block.

13. Detroit Lions - - Tyron Smith // Offensive Tackle// Southern California
- I think this is the year the team finally realizes they need to protect Matt Stafford's shoulder.

14. Cleveland Browns (from St. Louis) - - Corey Liuget // Defensive Tackle // Illinois
- Weird pick but whatever. The team trades away from getting Julio Jones and picks Liuget.

15. Philadelphia Eagles (from Miami) - - Jimmy Smith // Defensive Back // Colorado
- The team is in love with Smith and Andy Reid has no problem trading up to get his guy.

16. Jacksonville Jaguars - - Jake Locker // Quarterback // Washington
- Surprising pick but there is one every draft.

17. New England Patriots (from Oakland) - - Cameron Heyward // Defensive End // Ohio State
- Heyward has All Pro 5 tech written all over him being with the Pats.

18. San Diego Chargers - - J.J. Watt // Defensive End // Wisconsin
- Typical run of the mill 3-4 5-Tech to the Chargers.

19. New York Giants - - Mike Pouncey // Guard/Center // Florida
- Pouncey is overrated but he'll go early.

20. Washington Redskins (from Tampa Bay) - - Christian Ponder // Quarterback // Florida State
- I literally have no idea what Washington will do but chances are they trade back for someone in partciular.

21. Kansas City Chiefs - - Gabe Carimi // Offensive Tackle // Wisconsin
- Hate on Chiefs fans, but I think this will end up being the pick.

22. Indianapolis Colts - - Anthony Castonzo // Offensive Tackle // Boston College
- No priority should be put higher than protecting Peyton Manning.

23. Miami Dolphins (from Philadelphia) - - Ryan Mallett // Quarterback // Arkansas
- The Dolphins have made it known they're in love with Mallett.

24. New Orleans Saints - - Mark Ingram // Running Back // Alabama
- Having a sneaky feeling that this pick will happen.

25. Seattle Seahawks - - Derek Sherrod // Offensive Tackle // Mississippi State
The team wants to get out of the first round but I don't see it happening.

26. Baltimore Ravens - - Muhammad Wilkerson // Defensive Lineman // Temple
- Tough pick but the team will most likley go defense.

27. Atlanta Falcons - - Jonathan Baldwin // Wide Receiver // Pittsburgh
- No way they can achieve the trade into the Top 10, so Baldwin is the pick.

28. Cincinnati Bengals (from New England) - - Colin Kaepernick // Quarterback // Nevada
- The Patriots are going to trade one of their picks and this is most likely the one. The Bengals will grab Kaepernick before the Bills do and will groom his as the replacement for Palmer.

29. Chicago Bears - - Marvin Austin // Defensive Tackle // North Carolina
- With Sherrod gone, the team doesn't reach for an offensive tackle. The team has reportedly been thinking of Austin as a replacement for the recently departed Tommie Harris.

30. New York Jets - - Phil Taylor // Nose Tackle // Baylor
- Kris Jenkins is done, enter in Phil Taylor.

31. Pittsburgh Steelers - - Ben Ijalana // Offensive Lineman // Villanova
- The Steelers are supposedly infatuated with the idea of putting the two Pouncey brothers together but I doubt that happens. Ijalana is a sleeper to go in the first round and can either play guard or tackle.

32. Green Bay Packers - - Aaron Williams // Defensive Back // Texas
- Strange pick, I know but Williams fits the mold of a Packer DB and can be groomed by two of the best corners in the game to eventually replace Woodson.

I'm expecting a lot of flak but whatever

Carimi is the ONLY OT i'm ok with

Looking at your avy, I pictured Pryor telling us this part........of course with his own style.

Like the trade back for Cleveland and we pick up a target that is needed.

If the Bengals trade up for a QB in the 1st it will be either Dalton or Ponder they need someone to come in right away and play not a QB that will take 2-3 years to develop.

04-27-2011, 06:57 PM
I agree, I dropped the ball with the Kaepernick pick. Ponder and Dalton fits their offense better anyways.

EDIT: However, Dalton cannot come in and play right away, I don't see that at all. Ponder on the other hand definitely can.

04-27-2011, 07:11 PM
JFLO, if Ingram is there, your sneaky feeling will be right.

04-27-2011, 07:12 PM
It's amazing, wicket knows more than Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis. I mean, saying that you will get Loomis a psychiatric examination betrays any trust in this organization's ability to make prudent decisions to improve the team.

04-27-2011, 07:36 PM
Ponder is not the answer, he reminds me a lot of Jason Campbell, rather have Carimi or Wilkerson in that situation.

04-27-2011, 08:32 PM
Hate the Saints pick. That is all.

04-27-2011, 08:50 PM
NOOOOOOOO Gabbert.Sorry but it is dam A.Smith 2.0 all over again .

04-27-2011, 08:52 PM
Ponder is not the answer, he reminds me a lot of Jason Campbell, rather have Carimi or Wilkerson in that situation.

How does Ponder remind you of Jason Campbell in any way?

Doesn't read defenses well, looks short to intermediate right away, locks onto receivers, shaky deep ball, overrated mobility...
