2011 NFL Draft Mailbag

NFL Draft Mailbag Notes: These are not actually e-mails. They are comments left on the comment board in my 2011 NFL Mock Draft. I've included some of these comments and my responses to them.


2011 NFL Draft E-mails - Crackhead Mail

  • From Ark:

    heres the top ten Top ten 2011 1 Carolina - Dareous 2 Denver - Petersen 3 Buffalo

    --> I think I speak for everyone when I say that's one hell of a top 10.

  • From Tbone:

    top ten mistakes in your draft 1 chris culiver at 198 how about gone at 94 2 denarius moore at 194 how about gone at 159 3 chimdi chekwa at 162 how about gone at 74 4 shareece wright at 146 how about gone at 94 5 joe lefeged at 142 how about gone at 124 6 niles paul at 131 how about gone at 94 7 kenrick ellis at 126 how about gone at 74 8 dontay moch at 96 how about gone at 74 9 demarco murray at 96 how about gone at 74 10 ras i dowling at 81 how about gone at 60

    --> You have four players "gone at 74" - Chimdi Chekwa, Kenrick Ellis, Dontay Moch and DeMarco Murray. Naturally, the Patriots are drafting at No. 74, so Bill Belichick must be using one hell of a camcorder to get all of those guys on his team.

  • From 1788:

    Dude your round 6 sucks!!!! Same for your OG rankings. UNLV guard Matt Murphy had an awesome pro day!! Do some research!!!!!!!

    --> Well, at least my Rounds 1-5 don't suck.

    And who the hell is Matt Murphy? I took your advice and did some research. CBS ranks Murphy as the 630th best player in this class. ESPN doesn't rank him at all. So there you go. I did some research!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • From SheepHearder:

    Baaaaaaaa. Keep on following Walt! And by that I mean keep up the good work of your cut-n-paste mocks! Isn't it nice to have a subscription to "IN" on Makes your "job" a whole lot easier, huh?!

    --> What the hell is a "sheep hearder?" And for someone who makes fun of ESPN constantly, I'm very disgruntled that someone thinks I "cut-n-paste" from their site.

  • From John:

    the charges are going to draft julio jones.there not going for wilkerson.wilkerson will come in the second round.thats my opinion.

    --> What? How the hell are the "Charges" going to get Julio Jones? And saying "Wilkerson will come in the second round" sounds kinda dirty.

  • From Nunua:

    what are u talking about with the jags?

    --> Weh? What are you talking about about talking about with the Jags? Ouch, I just made my head hurt.

  • From TT:

    Could you possibly hate on the Titans any more than you do in this mock draft? Each of the first three picks, you mention something about how they don't care about character, if anybody will take this guy the Titans will, they don't care about the major red flags, etc. I just think you're being ignorant in acting like the Titans are the only team that has taken risks on players in the past. At the end of the day, talent trumps character the majority of the time. This strategy backfires sometimes, (see Talib from the Bucs getting arrested this week. Why no Buc hate?) but to act like Tennessee is the only team that is ever willing to take these risks is beyond narrow minded.

    --> Umm... here are some write-ups from my Bucs picks:

    "One team that will ignore Clayborn's character concerns is Tampa Bay."

    "Jabaal Sheard is a late first-round talent, but will probably fall into the middle of Round 2 because of a previous arrest. The Buccaneers, however, have a tendency of looking past these things."

    As our good friend 1788 would say, "Do some research!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    i agree with walter. mallet to slow to even move around the pocket, much less avoid a rush. his footwork is absolutely horrid and that's something that is a lot harder to overcome than one would think. i'm a huge titans fan and i would be very displeased if we drafted mallet. he looks like a disaster "see russell, jamarcus).

    All--Mel Kipper has Mallett going in the first round--Kipper is a credible source, this guy Walter is not. Keep your ire in check. Just wait for the draft.

    Mallet sucks and will turn out as poor as Jimmy Clausen, look up info before you rip on a mock draft...

    Your evaluation of Ryan Mallet is unimpressive. You have no facts to back up your claims. Give factual reference to your analysis. He had a public intox 2 years ago, end of story. Nothing else. Has been the leader for his team, no character issues, no work ethic issues. Always has been highly praised by his coaches for work ethic, film study, leadership in the huddle/on the field, and off the field. Takes command of his team and will be a first rounder, top 15 pick.

    My favorite quarterback available is Colin Kaepernick. He has all of Cam Newton's tools, but he's not as built, and he handles the rush better.

    I don't know why there isn't more of a buzz around Kaepernick. What do you think?

    Try reading that last e-mail from Reed in the voice of Kahn from King of the Hill. That makes it even funnier.

    and qbs throw running backs run, you want your qb to be mobile and slide well in the pocket and is hard to bring down which mallett does well, go ahead draft mallett late he will go to a good team sit a couple years then come in an dominate the league, recievers cant out run his arm and db's cant cover space fast enough if out of position an that will make pro scouts drool

    not even the biggest arkansas fan but to say he isnt the best qb in the draft is ridiculous he makes throws al ost all pros cant make reads the field well, played behind alot of freshman o-line an was running for his life alot. He has alot of confidence you want in a qb he want the ball to make the big game winning throw, also he training coach now coached phillip rivers before the draft an he said in all his life he never seen anyone throw as hard and accurate as mallett an his foot work is well past where he'd thought it would be an he is NFL ready now. And remember in the skills challege a couple weeks ago he blew jake locker, and andy dalton out the water in every drill. I mean what makes him so dumb because hes from the south an talks slow(h'snever been on academic suspension) i dont care if he cant spell his name he knows football,he has zero character concerns,he plays with emotion an gets fired up if thats what you mean he loves the game more then 99% of these other players. he is the best prospect he has things that cant be taught, you can teach what he needs work on. after pro day when all you Mallett bashers start tryn to jump on the band wagon we are gonna kick you right off. Mallett is a top 15 pick. walter you are an idiot

    I just thought everyone should know just incase you didn't read his "I'm gona kiss walter's ass post."
    Hurry your throw up mallet stop running like a 2x4 and act like you care about football. That pick against the bucks was your fault.

    I'm an IU guy and i still think even if he is a complete idiot Mallet is the 3rd best QB in this draft Behind Gabbert and Jake Locker not the BUST that is CAM NEWTON

    I would like to know exactly what Mallett has done besides the underage drinking. Has he failed UA's? All I keep seeing is "he has possible character concerns" but nobody has a source except other websites that have no sources. I konw you could say the same about Cam but it's not happening because nothing has been proven. Don't know why it's okay to go ahead and bash Mallett with no proof.

    "OMG! Why you hate Ryan Mallett? You suck. Ryan Mallett is the best. So what if he looks like a taller, dumber Eminem? He is tall and he can throw awesome throws and he went to my favorite school. You're an idiot Walter and your website is going to ruin Mallet's whole draft and screw up his life. Just because it's called Walterfootball doesn't mean you can just say whatever you believe. Ryan Mallett 4eva!" I wish i was all hopped up on hate like this guy. Maybe just maybe then i could make hate mail like him but i'm going to have to try my best without talent like him. You make a great mock draft every year and people just don't appreciate it for what it is for some reason. Mallet 4eva!!!!! How'd I do?

    Cam is one of those guys that has a huge MAYBE tacked on. He's a huge competitor, physical freak, and a winner, but he needs more incubation if he's going to be a premier QB in the NFL. If he goes high in the 1st, it's a massive gamble for whichever team is picking him.

    Man your causing some waves. The reality is mallet will drop out of the first round for poor mobility, questionable decisions in the clutch, and his todd blackledge like release. However, the cannon arm will get him drafted in the 2nd. Throw hogfans a bone. Arizona cardinals 2nd round.
