2011 NFL Draft Mailbag


NFL Draft Mailbag Notes: These are some e-mails I received after the conclusion of the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

2011 NFL Draft E-mails - Post-Round 1 E-mails



  • From Terrence F:

    Danny Watkins will be in an Eagles uniform the first day trading opens up. That�s the only reason they drafted him. Watkins is a b+ pick�you�ll see when he is in the pro bowl in 2012 and a mainstay on the O line for 5 or 6 years


    --> No, it's an F. The oldest player ever taken in Round 1, and he's still learning how to play football. Andy Reid doesn't re-sign anyone over 30, so he's 4-5 years and out.



  • From Bob B:

    Walt you are DEAD wrong on this one..What impact player would the Falcons get at 27..huh?? The pick next year will be in the late first also SO I think they made a great pick up here with Julio. And what says he isnt in the same league as Calvin? julio put up better numbers in college and did as good as Calvin at the combine.If the picks arent gonna be better than what we already have than why keep them...Great move!!


    --> I'll quote Greg Cox - teams that think they're one player away usually struggle the following season. I hate that the Falcons surrendered a first-round pick next year. That could really come back to haunt them.

    Julio Jones is not in the same league as Calvin Johnson. Not even close.





  • From Greg M:

    Hey Walt . . . does Derek Sherrod fit the "appearance" you were referring to for the Packers!!

    Love the site, but that silly line you kept using doesn't help your credibility. This makes the 5th or 6th black offensive lineman Ted has drafted.


    --> It's a joke. And Who cares if Belichick used a pick on a black lineman or not? Don't take things so seriously man.



  • From Robert B:

    With the Mark Ingram drafting, what possible role will Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory play? And how did Bowers fall out of round 1?


    --> Pierre Thomas will be the pass-catching running back on third down. Chris Ivory won't get many carries. By the way, Mark Ingram is going to be a fantasy stud. He's going to score a ton of touchdowns in that offense.

    And Bowers fell out of Round 1 because of his degenerative knee. Teams are scared.



  • From Baba Hanz:

    Your penis can do much more!


    --> Whoops, how did that spam mail get in here?





  • From Rob S:

    I know you're probably innundated with mail right now, but I picked up this nugget last night from Twitter. Quentin Groves tweeted this:

    "whoever gets Ryan Mallett is gonna get a hell of a steal!!"

    The next tweet was this:

    "RT @ThePhillyRaider @QuentinGroves52 Could it be the Raiders? Know something we don't<~~hint hint"

    Granted, I somehow doubt Davis is sharing his draft strategy with his weakside linebacker, but sometimes these things have a way of filtering out.

    If this pick happens, this will also be my last email to you since, as a Raiders fan, I will have no choice but to quietly walk into the ocean and drown myself. :) Seriously, though, if Davis takes Mallett, we'll know last year's strong draft was a mirage. I'm going to be nervous all day over this.


    --> Haha that's pretty interesting. Nothing the Raiders do would surprise me. If the Mallett's the pick, you have my condolences.



  • From Go Zenon S:

    I wanted to defend the Detroit pick of Nick Fairley and why i think its a great pick. so here goes;

    in a division with Andre Peterson, you're going to want to be able to stop the run and in a division with Aaron Rogers, you need to get to the QB. Fairley helps fill these needs and makes life for both Green Bay and Minnesota far more difficult. and with the Bears O-line still being fragile - even with the addition of Carimi - who could resist a chance to add another pass-rusher to try and make Jake Cutler cry like a baby (i say cry. hes not the type to cry really. no, hes the type who will just go to his room in a strop, listen to My Chemical Romance really loud, msn-ing with his best bud about how everyone hates him).


    --> I'm concerned about Fairley's work ethic and the fact that he's a one-year wonder. I'm not concerned he'll try hard all the time, so I'm not a fan of taking a guy like that and not filling a need. The Lions were fine at DT.

    Hey Walt, I have the feeling that there will be more trading in the first 2 rounds than ever before since QB's will be at a premium and better teams may be willing to trade back because of the depth at other positions. Do you see many of the early second round teams trading into the back of the 1st round such as the 49ers or Texans trading up for Ponder or Dalton?

    Hey Walt- I always love your stuff and trying to mock a 7 round draft is like herding cats. As a packer fan my only issue is when I see huge reaches like noel devine in the 4th round. I feel the pack organization is 1 of the few that usually doesnt reach for need but takes players that unexpectedly fall such as Bulaga last year or Finley a few years back. They may take a rb like Vereen, Murray, Hunter, Green, in the 4th but I doubt Devine. Keep up the great work because soon we'll all be wrong.

    Hey Jay, a typo would easily explain a missing letter; that's not necessarily a grammar issue.

    Also, SomeFrenchGuy, I'll draw up a mock for last year. I'll let you suck my dick.

    Walt, you make fun of people who make grammar mistakes but you made one yourself in this article. You stated that Stephen Paea is "the prototype of what Wade Phillips look for." Unless somebody cloned him and there are now multiple Wade Phillips, it should say "what Wade Phillips looks for."

    I would like to say to anyone who wants to post some hate comment to try to write something clever. Walt's mocks always make sense, some comments don't...

    If someone find a mock draft which will be 100% right, i will s*ck his c*ck. (PS for stupid haters : that was ironic dumb b*stard, like many of Walt's comments)

    Thank you.

    PS' : I apologize for some hypotetical writing mistakes because of my name.

    Walt, do you think it is possible for the Broncos to trade Tim Tebow to the Panthers for Jimmy Clausen and the Panthers 2012 second round pick?

    Walter refused to answer them. My real name was posted 3 times. I didn't feel like putting it again, so I condensed my 3 posts into one long one.

    For which I still have gotten no response.

    Hilarious that you combat Mallett's wonderlic score which clearly proves you wrong about his intelligence with "well Chris Mortensen was wrong about Gabbert's score so he's probably wrong about this too. I heard he got a 9".

    Seems like a 9 would have been stated already by a media dog who wants to bring him down more, or it seems like you of all people would have loved to break that news.

    You refuse to admit you're wrong

    Okay man, you need to get your facts straight about Ryan Mallet. He's from texarkana, arkansas. if you know people from there they all take like rednecks with a ghetto accent. its just how he talks who cares? chris johnson talks like a dummy (read his tweets) and no one ever questioned his ability? and also everyone smokes weed now. EVERYONE.
