  • 1st Round Shockers...

    What do we all think might happen in the 2011 1st rd that shocks the masses? Like Tyson Alualu in the top 10 or the Texans reaching on Duane Brown in 2008. Here are a few...


    *Jake Locker going a lot higher than his critics predict.

    *Cam Newton dropping a lot further than his admirers predict.

    *edit: nevermind lol

    *Pat Devlin going late 1st due to a Pats trade-down, which ya know is coming.

    *Jabaal Sheard goes 1st round.

    There's a few ideas that would shock people...but could happen.

      The character questions could have been over-looked by the right team but I hadn't heard about the ACL. That sucks for him. Since he can't workout before the draft obviously he's an UDFA. Hope the Giants steal him.

        A.J. Green #1 overall pick

        Dallas takes a DL

        On a limb here Locker is the #1 QB taken if he out does Newton in workouts

        Detroit goes BPA

        Kenny Tate Mid 1st Round pick, first Safety off the board(IF stock soars Dallas is the spot for him)

          This might be another year we see a team reach significantly for an OT prospect.

          Not a very impressive class this year for this position (even if top underclassmen declare) imo and there is ALWAYS a big demand.

          I don't see a single OT prospect that is worth being picked in the top 10, but it could happen.

              I could also see the possibility of no DE prospects going in the top 10 in favor of more QB's or as MaxV stated, a reach on an OT

                  Ok.....Why are the Pats going Quarterback in the 1st Round? They are a team that typically does things their own way, but why a 1st Round QB of all things?

                  Is Tom Brady slowing down? Has he had an injury prone career? Could the Patriots not use the help on defense?

                  I think some people are going to be a little surprised when Pat Devlin is still on the board in the 4th Round. Even if Locker/Mallett were available in the mid-late 1st I don't see why New England would go that direction; but Pat Devlin going that high is a little crazy. If you look at the QBs that have snuck into the 1st in the past decade none of them have Pat Devlin's look (average NFL size, average athleticism, average arm, FCS competition.) I just don't know where people are getting the impression that he's special. He was far from from special at Penn State, where Daryll Clark beat him out for a job, and he's far from Joe Flacco's level while at Delaware. He'll get his shot in the NFL but I don't believe any team will think to pull the trigger as high as the draft's first 50 picks.

                      Pretty sure he meant the Pats would trade out of the first and whoever is coming into their spot will be the one taking the QB...

                        Ding ding ding lol wow...thought that was obvious when I said "when the Pats trade down". Unreal.

                        Btw Pudge..read the title.."shockers". This is for thinking outside the realm of popular opinion so don't get on and bash peoples posts. QB to NE 1st rd would have been nuts, true, but post your own ideas rather than going off on other people.

                          I don't know if Devlin was beat out by Clark at Penn State as much as he was a victim of Seniority.

                          Devlin's biggest highlight at Penn State came when he threw a deep garbage-time TD pass to Deon Butler against MSU, which pissed Dantonio off a bit.

                          Controversy aside, that was a very nice throw.

                            He had to come in and save them that one year vs. Ohio State. I never understood how Clark kept starting because Devlin always looked good when he came in and played and Clark was so damn erratic. Its Penn State...they love those athletes playing QB and did their best this year handing Bolden Jr. a job he didn't deserve.

                              Urban myth. He didn't save them against OSU. Didn't complete a pass. Drew a defensive pass interference call on OSU and scored on a 1yd qb sneak. Devlin should have stayed at PSU and he'd have had a good receiving corp to work with this past year. Clark was a good college qb. Not great. Just good. Devlin bailed on the program and PSU paid for it this year.

                              My biggest surprise is M. Leshure going before Mark Ingram.
