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 - Hate Mail
From Kade Nelson:
Who ever made this mock draft is either incompetent or just dumb
--> What about incompetent AND dumb? Why does it have to be one or the other? I was aiming for incompetent and dumb, damn it.
Don't understand the 1st 3 picks for the 49ers at all. Areas of need are QB, pass rush and CB. He has the 49ers wasting a pick on a QB in the 1st round and then ignoring areas of need. Very poor selection. Obviously has not spent much time on analizing the 49ers or their needs.
--> You say you need a quarterback, I gave you one in Round 1. You say pass rush, I gave you a rush linebacker in Round 2. You say corner, I gave you one in Round 5. Am I missing something here? Are you looking at an evil version of my mock draft from a parallel universe where I gave the 49ers a kicker in Round 1?
c'mon bud, u dont have the lb from fresno state gettin drafted at all????? Chris carter??? oh my, guess that why u dont work for fox or espn
--> I have Chris Carter going to the Jets in Round 5. Oh, coincidentally, this Web site has a contract with Fox Sports. So there goes that theory :-)
From Todd McShay:
Not even Helen Keller would pick Ponder over Locker.Amateur.
--> That's not fair. Helen Keller was a terrific scout.
Ryan Mallet is a top ten pick I actually think the bengals are gonna take him at 4 and you still have Cobb over Titas Young. Dude get off the drugs. Kaapernick over Mallett and locker maybe you should try a different sport. LANCE KENDRICKS IN THE FIFTH, give up dude
--> That's it, I give up! Which sport should I try next? Hmm... I know... Stay tuned for my 2012 Badminton Mock Draft next spring!
