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 Walt................ U SUCK!!!!:
Worse mock I've ever seen
--> Worse grammar I've ever seen. Since Emmitt, anyway.
If Tyron Smith and Amukamara are gone at 13 that really messes up your draft don't it, because who do you give the Lions? The Lions would have to reach for Kerrigan and that means the Jags will have to reach for Houston and then what will the Bucs do? Thats why you Mockers have Prince falling to 13, because that would make the rest of your draft look half way decent. Mockers like yourself only mock a certain way and that way is to make sure your mock LOOKS creditable. You have players going in certain places so it opens the door for other teams to fill there needs. Your mocks are always crap Walt.
--> I'm sure your comment posts are always crap, so I guess we might have something in common.
Whom do I give to the Lions if Tyron Smith and Prince Amukamara are gone at 13? That's easy - Aldon Smith. If he's gone, Cameron Jordan, Ryan Kerrigan or J.J. Watt.
I don't know why you would think I'd mock ahead, but I mock one pick at a time.
Clearly this mock sucks. This guys a idiot.
--> Clearly if you make sucky mocks, you're "a idiot."
The Texans, or any 3-4 team, will not be taking Stephen Paea. He is an obvious 4-3 DT. Despite his strength, there is no way he is capable of playing the nose. Every [email protected] draft "expert" knows this.
--> Sorry to shatter your deranged reality, but Stephen Paea is an obvious 3-4 nose tackle as well - in fact he's the prototype of what Wade Phillips look for.
Looks like you took a big dump on your keyboard and called it a mock.
--> I called it a mock draft. Get your facts straight.
Your a real piece of work. a round of appluase for this man who does nothing productive...ever. Witht he Bills 3rd pick you have had the same thing written for about a month, however now you have just taken out Newton's name and replaced it with gabberts. you might want to do the same with the 2nd and 3rd rounds moron.
--> Thank you, thank you. I'd like to thank all my fans. Without them, my being able to do nothing productive ever wouldn't be possible. Thanks, and God bless!
While we greatly differ on prospect rankings, something that should be assumed this early in the process, I see great thought was put into each pick and they all make sense when looked at through your perspective on the players. Great job!
Out of sheer boredom and the upcoming NBA draft has gotten me itching to make a new mock draft. Of course the NFL draft is a whole lot less predictable than the NBA draft, but also provides more success stories than the NBA draft. Again, I used schedules to determine each team's records and if you get upset with me just remember it's June and a whole lot can change by next April.
