  • McShay Top 5 Posted

    Someone please comment on this.... Gabbert at 5? I haven't heard any indications he is coming out and generally hear his name associated with the 2nd - 3rd Round....

    "The NFL's regular season is over and the playoff field is set, which means the top 20 of the NFL draft order is also locked in.

    Our next full mock first round is still a couple weeks away, but here's a quick look at how I see the top five playing out right now.

    All five of the players below are underclassmen who have until mid-January to decide whether they will enter the draft, so this is obviously subject to change. But as things stand today there is little question who the top pick would be.

    1. Carolina Panthers -- Stanford QB Andrew Luck
    Luck is the highest-graded quarterback since Matt Ryan in 2008 and will be the face of the franchise that drafts him for years to come.

    2. Denver Broncos -- Auburn DT Nick Fairley
    A versatile lineman with the ability to disrupt plays in the backfield, Fairley would help shore up a defense that has been a mess for some time now.

    3. Buffalo Bills -- LSU CB Patrick Peterson
    Peterson's combination of size, instincts and athleticism would be an instant upgrade for the Bills both on defense and in the return game.

    4. Cincinnati Bengals -- Clemson DE Da'Quan Bowers
    The Bengals managed only 27 sacks in 2010 and could use Bowers' quickness and athleticism off the edge, and he can also play the run, too.

    5. Arizona Cardinals -- Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert
    Gabbert has risen up the board late in the season thanks to the size, arm strength and pocket mobility to develop into an effective starter in the NFL."

          I have Nick Fairley going in the early teens, however I think some team will take him in the top 7, but just not at #2...

            He was the most dominant defensive player in the country.

            The biggest knock on Fairley is how he hits opposing quarterbacks.

            If he were somehow to last until 6th pick, the Browns better be all over him, but he probably won't get past 2.

            And everyone gets their jollies from killing Todd McShay. What a surprise.

              Surely the Bills recently spent a high first round pick on a CB who can help in the return game??? They have problems stopping the run, rushing the passer, protecting the QB and general QB play. But they take a CB? I think they'd have a hard time passing up Bowers, Dareus or Quinn or maybe even Cam Newton

                Talking about Quinn, I don't see how he gets past the Bills and the Bengals.

                  Gabbert is a surprise there, but otherwise, the list is solid. I think Fairley will go much higher than he appears in Scott's Dec. 3rd draft, that's for certain.

                    I don't see the Bengals taking Da'Quan Bowers with Carlos Dunlap ending the season on a high note (9.5 Sacks in 8 games.) The team already is paying a lot of money for Antwan Odom & they seem to have some faith in Michael Johnson as a 3rd-Down pass rusher. Additionally, the team still has Robert Geathers and Frostee Rucker on the roster. I agree they could probably use some help at the position, but there are a few spots on the depth chart that really need to be addressed early (or through free agency.) Wide Receiver and Safety are the two primary needs, where we'll need to add a starter next season. Offensive Guard is a big need, the Bengals will be looking to help up front and the Guard spot offers a chance for the largest upgrade. Linebacker is also a possibility high in the draft as the team may try and replace Dhani Jones. After that, Defensive End, Quarterback, and Defensive Tackle are possibilities.

                    Much like the situation at Defensive End, the Bengals have some talent and young promise at Defensive Tackle. Geno Atkins had a good rookie year operating as a 3rd-Down rush-specialist inside. Domata Peko is the solid veteran force in the middle. Pat Sims is still young, and is a somewhat effective run-stopper. Tank Johnson was a pretty big disappointment this season. We could use improvement, but I don't know that they'll go for it with the more gaping holes on the depth chart looming.

                    I imagine Cedric Benson will re-sign with the team, which is why I don't list Running Back.

                      Gabbert has huge potential, but needs major work. 2 years of holding the clipboard would suit him well. He's not good at reading D's, and has trouble finding 2nd and 3rd reads.

                        How can Buffalo take a DB? That won't happen.

                          Gabbert at 5 is major lolz.

                            AJ Green to Cincy makes sense to me. Cut the cord with the clown act. Both of em. Get Palmer a weapon he can trust. Keep Benson. They'll be better than you think next year with a 4th place schedule(Buffalo and Denver). NFC West and AFC South.

                              McShay is the guy many love to hate. Lots of people called him an idiot for his opinions on Matt Ryan leading up to the 2008 Draft. If people would get over their emotional dislike of him they'd see he's good at what he does.
