if the Saints would pass on home town once in a lifetime type of player in Leonard Fournette I would DIE!! Mark Ingram hasn't shown to be all that great. We will likely have a new young QB in a few years and a BEAST back would do him wonders. Hell he may help Brees last a little longer in that he won't have to pass 100 times a game. Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, DeVante Harris, Ken Crawley, Damian Swann, and Kyle Wilson will be plenty enough depth at corner. The 2 UDFA corners have played good considering they are undrafted. I think PJ was gonna have a good year before the devastating concussion. We are missing Sheldon Rankins right now and our top 3 corners. This D isn't as bad as most think, but the devastating injuries to all our corners have killed us, which would happen to every team out there. Plus I'm scared of Bama corners BIG TIME!! They seem to bust or take forever to produce!!
Yeah the Patriots are just clamoring for an interior offensive lineman. After all they have Thuney and Mason as starters at guard with Jonathan Cooper and Ted Karras as back-ups and have a very good center in David Andrews. What the Patriots need is an offensive tackle because Sebastian Vollmer ain't getting any younger and hasn't really been fully healthy the last two seasons. If there's a great prospect at OT at the end of the first round the Patriots should take him. You're out of your tree if you think the Patriot's greatest need is an interior offensive lineman.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.

2011 NFL Draft E-mails - Random NFC Comments and Prospect Questions
I would love if the Rams selected Cameron Jordan, then selected Martez Wilson or Rahim Moore, Titus Young (who seems to be falling),John Moffitt and then Taiwan Jones. I think that would be an excellent draft.
--> Per reports, the Rams aren't into Cameron Jordan. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jim Thomas has written that the Rams see Jordan as a "rich man's Victor Adeyanju," St. Louis' fourth-round pick in 2006 who is no longer with the team.
From Falcons Pick Will Not Be Right:
I totally big time dis agree about Brooks Reed to the Falcons. I think Brooks should be a 5 or 6 rounder.
--> Well, that's your opinion. Brooks Reed will go in the first round (or top of the second at the latest) because pass rushers are a premium in the NFL, and he possesses immense upside.
Reed is the type of player the Falcons are looking for, like it or not.
From Vikings Fann:
vikes dont need a TE they need like 2 WR
--> Like it or not, the Vikings will be targeting a tight end in the 2011 NFL Draft. Visanthe Shiancoe has been a disappointment, and he'll be a free agent following the 2011 season.
Waaaay off on jake locker. He will go in the middle of the first round no question.
--> If you say so. I mean, why shouldn't a 2-year project with miserable accuracy, decision-making and football IQ go in the middle of the first round?
Why did you put Randall Cobb over Torrey Smith and Jonathan Baldwin?
--> Randall Cobb's generating some serious buzz right now, whereas Jonathan Baldwin has character concerns and Torrey Smith's small hands may be an issue. These prospects could go in any order though.
Duuude Bowers at 24... are you high.
--> Because teams are going to be lining up to draft a one-year wonder who needs knee surgery.
