@Dedlift they are above 20 now.... Honestly would put them higher, if Mr Floyd pans out like Aldon smith before the trouble, it will be easy to see them as a top 10 team this year, given they have a plethora of stand up ends who can play. They put a lot into depth which is always important with injuries in the pros, and the bears could be on of the deepest teams this year, not the best but deepest and sometimes those deep teams make deep playoff runs.
The Colts are not a top 5 team. They are like the Saints where yes that offense can be potent, but with the defense being super porous (90 points in 2 games) and not defensive talent being added the typical 30 points per game won't be enough. With the Texans and Jags adding all that talent they will be lucky to win that division as well.
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 - 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.
