Following a nice Week 10 (10-4
ATS), I crapped the bed in Week 11 (6-7-1). There are still a handful of
teams that I honestly don't have a solid read on...kinda disconcerting
this late in a season.
me, Philadelphia must be faded until further notice. Simply fading
Sanchez is usually a good bet; when you factor in a crumbling defensive
unit and a locker room that is reportedly coming apart at the seams, how
can you justify picking the Eagles? Four days isn't enough time to
address their growing list of problems. I can see Megatron eclipsing 200
yards vs. Byron Maxwell/Nolan Carroll.
of the Week. I love this spot for the Cowboys; an absolute must-win
situation vs. a team that has created some cushion in the NFC and blew
their wad against Washington. Don't underestimate the absence of Peanut
Tillman in this one. Without Tillman, Benwikere moves to the perimeter,
meaning the godawful Colin Jones draws slot duties. Cole Beasley should
Bennett is out, so if Alshon Jeffery can't go, Jay Cutler's starting
receivers will be Marquess Wilson, Josh Bellamy and Zach Miller. That's
practice squad-quality. Given Jay Cutler's history vs. GB and the
absence of secondary QB Antrel Rolle, there seems little hope for the
Bears. Still, I can't shake the feeling that they will keep it close if
Matt Forte is active. This might be Chicago's Super Bowl, and with high
winds/frozen rain in the forecast, both teams could be restricted to
ball-control offense...an ideal scenario for John Fox and the
Forte/Langford duo. If both Forte and Jeffery can go and the pregame
forecast is as expected, I may jump on the Bears.
Last update: Saturday, April 28, 2012.
This is a 2012 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 4 and 5 for Saturday's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right, but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 3 of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Indianapolis Colts: Alameda Ta'amu, NT, Washington
The Colts grab a nose tackle to man the middle of their 3-4 defense.
Pick change; previously Cyrus Gray, RB
Denver Broncos: Joe Adams, WR, Arkansas
The Broncos add a speedy slot receiver for Peyton Manning to work with.
Minnesota Vikings: Senio Kelemete, OT/G, Washington
The Vikings need tons of help on their offensive line. Kelemete has received a lot of interest from Minnesota.
Minnesota Vikings: Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin
The Vikings need a wide receiver to complement Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson.
Pick change; previously Lucas Nix, G/T (CLE)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Taylor Thompson, TE, SMU
The Buccaneers want to add a backup tight end. They've brought Thompson in for a pre-draft visit and are interested.
Washington Redskins: Philip Thomas, S, Syracuse
After signing Tanard Jackson, the Redskins add their second troubled Syracuse product. Washington has had Thomas in for a visit.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Leonard Johnson, CB, Iowa State
Gene Smith drafted a punter in the third round. He may just led his final draft as Jaguars general manager. The Jags passed on a lot of good corners in doing so.
Pick change; previously Vick Ballard, RB
Carolina Panthers: Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest
The Panthers land an understudy to Steve Smith.
Buffalo Bills: Malik Jackson, DE, Tennessee
The Bills select a backup defensive end to go behind their veteran free agents.
Miami Dolphins: Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami
The Dolphins could use more help at wide receiver, and Streeter is a nice value in the fifth round.
Kansas City Chiefs: James-Michael Johnson, ILB, Nevada
The Chiefs could use depth at inside linebacker.
Pick change; previously Dwight Jones, WR
Buffalo Bills: Jaye Howard, DT, Florida
The Bills get a defensive tackle to fortify their depth.
Oakland Raiders: Frank Alexander, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
The Raiders need more youth on their defensive line on both the edge and the interior. Alexander and Chapman are good values for Oakland in the fifth round.
San Diego Chargers: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami
The Chargers could use a running back to replace Darren Sproles. I'm guessing there are some character concerns pushing Miller down.
Pick change; previously Nate Potter, OT
St. Louis Rams: Brandon Washington, G, Miami
The Bears grab some offensive line depth.
Pick change; previously Matt Reynolds, OT/G (CHI)
Arizona Cardinals: Nate Potter, OT, Boise State
The Cardinals could use a better pass protector like Potter.
Pick change; previously Kheeston Randall, DE/DT
Dallas Cowboys: Ronald Leary, G, Memphis
Sources have indicated that the Cowboys have a serious interest in Leary. He's went to Dallas for a pre-draft visit.
Philadelphia Eagles: Janzen Jackson, S, McNeese State
The Eagles get some safety help and have shown interest in Jackson in the form of a pre-draft visit.
Seattle Seahawks: Kheeston Randall, DE/DT, Texas
The Seahawks could use more help on the defensive line.
