  • Rise and Drop

    Every year we see a lot of players who were supposed to go in the top 10-15 dropping into the late first, or even out of the first round, and, at the same time, we see some players rising dramatically.
    Who do you think is gonna rise and who he's gonna drop this year?

    I think Balmer will be picked in the top 20, and I also see Godfrey sneaking into the first round.

    Trevor Laws is a guy I can see sneaking in
    Brian Brohm could take a drop if Ryan takes a slight drop and a team takes Flacco over Brohm.

      I could see Jonathan Stewart fall because of the surgery he had. I could also see Desean Jackson fall a bit as well. As far as rising, I could see James Hardy going a little higher then he's projected to be.

      Baltimore: 7-4

        Felix Jones could be taken in the first because of the injury to Stewart(hope not.) and Calais Campbell has dropped big time.

          Trevor Laws is climbing up draft boards at an enormous rate...I would not be surprised at all if he was to go in the 20's...

              I can see Trevor Laws, Chris Ellis, Eddie Royal, Kellen Davis, Chilo Rachal, Carlton Powell, Barry Booker, Tyvon Branch, Orlando Scandrick, and Quentin Demps, and Brandon Coutou all going before expected. There is some Virginia Tech. homerism in there, but I am confident about most of those picks.

                  No, I think they go where they are stated. Flowers in round two, Adibi in round two with a possible but doubtful round three drop, and Hall in round four or so.

                  But Royal is one of the top return men available, and had an excellent postseason. Good deep threat with good hands, but the return part of him will help a lot. I would say late round two or the top of round three.

                  I think Ellis will be overdrafted because of his pass rushing skills. There are some very good defensive ends this year, but after Gholston and Harvey I think he is the top pass rusher, not counting Quentin Groves the outside linebacker. I think Jeremy Thompson and Darrell Robertson are right there with Ellis, with Robertson a bit lower. A while ago I could have seen the Jaguars reaching for Ellis in round one, but I think an average postseason down him. I think his high is to the Raiders at the top of round two.

                  Powell and Booker are both nice penetrators. Booker gets in the backfield a lot, he really gets it. Reminds me of another prospect in this draft in Andre Fluellen, not sure why Fluellen is stated to go a round or two higher. Throughout his career Powell actually registered negative rushing yardage in all the plays he was in. Remember that sacks are counted as negative rushes. Both were productive and have good size. I would say round four for one and round five for another, each one is a toss up.

                  I am relatively confident about Ellis and Royal, as well as the other guys I selected to go higher than expected by most.

                    Glenn Dorseys stock was on the fall because of health concerns. But after his great pro day performance he has re-cemented himself into the top 5 player status. His ability is worth the health risk IMO.

                      Kenny Phillips could fall pretty far.

                        I think Balmer falls, Harvey maybe Stewart because of the injury. But not past the 1st round.

                        Laws is for sho going into the first round. Maybe the Giants....

                        As for phillips even though he is dropping, I think he still goes in top 20. He is the only 1st round safety, he can play and the only reason he might be falling is because he didn't live up to people expectations in the numbers department.

                          Tennessee homerism aside, I could definitely see Jerod Mayo going before where he'll be expected to go. I could see Kentwan Balmer maybe falling out of the second.

                            I don't think Phillips was ever going to go as high as people were saying anyway. He's a good player but nothing really stands out about him, which is what you need to be a top 15 pick at safety. (Unless you're the Dolphins and you take Jason Allen)


                            Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                              I haven't followed Jason Allen at all since he came to the NFL but the Dolphins probably thought he had a lot to offer CB wise since he played at corner a lot in college.
