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.
One, you're forgetting that Denver is carrying over 7.5 in cap. Denvers cap space is actually 40m next year, and goes to 50m when the cut Okung. No way do they lock him in at 12 something per year. He is worth bringing back at lower and shorter deal. They Broncos should sign Ricky Wagner and Kevin Zeitler. They are both good young players who fit Elway's MO of solid players getting their second deal so they spend their prime here. OJ Howard should be the first round target. Denver has guys at TE. Howard is going to be a Gronk/Kelse two way mismatch at TE. If Alabama actually bothered to use him, he'd be a top 10 pick. Sign Jonathan Hankins or Dontari Poe to play NT, and target a middle linebacker who can cover in the second.
Please feel free to leave an insight about your favorite team, to help determine every team biggest need. I am from NY so I know the Giants n Jets very well n their drafting tendencies but I don't know every other team like I know those two. I will keep updating this mock weekly up untill draft day. Thank you
