2011 NFL Draft E-mails - Random Questions and Comments



  • From Brawley:

    Cam Newton the first overall pick???? C'mon your ribbing me here. This is some kind of gag right?


    --> Cam Newton is one of three players being considered for the No. 1 overall pick. The other two are Da'Quan Bowers and Marcell Dareus. If Blaine Gabbert has an incredible Pro Day, he'll be the fourth. The great Adam Schefter predicted that the top pick would be a quarterback. I dare not go against the great Schefter.

    I'll discuss all of Carolina's possibilities in a detailed article tomorrow.



  • From Stevo:

    I just cant see the Browns taking a WR at number 6. They need D line man. I am not sold on Quinn. I think Patrick Peterson falls to the Browns at 6. Maybe Maybe Bowers drops to the Browns at 6.


    --> Really? I was under the impression that all Browns fans wanted a receiver. I know they need a defensive lineman, but they also desperately have to get a No. 1 receiver, and A.J. Green is the best player available at that juncture.





  • From Nathan:

    As reasonable as I can, I'm gonna have to disagree with you as far as the Seahawks go, not because of their picks, but who they're NOT picking. The Seahawks biggest need may be Offensive Line. Yet, you have them taking a CB, DE, FB, WR, QB, and SS???


    --> Consider this an oversight. I really need to give the Seahawks an offensive lineman at some point in my mock. I'll do that in the next update.



  • From VikesRules:

    vikings should get a QB in 1st rd a de in 2nd a cb in 4th a ot and wr in 5th and fs in 6


    --> Teams don't think this way. If they settled on a particular position in each round, they might miss out on a much better player that would also satisfy some sort of need. Teams have a big board and go off of that.





  • From Wes:

    I like thie Julio Jones pick for washington but the locker pick makes no sense. Washington is not going to select two offensive players with their first two picks the front seven is too much of a need to ignore


    --> So you want your quarterback to be Rex Grossman next year? The Redskins have so many needs, one of which is the quarterback position. Why would they pass on a quarterback just to take a defensive player?



  • From Go Pack:

    What I don't get is why the heck you are putting Cameron Heyward in the second round. He is too beastly!


    --> I had major problems fitting Cameron Heyward into the recent version of my 2011 NFL Mock Draft, but there was just no room for him in the back end of my first round.



  • From Go Eliot:

    Question regarding Pats pick at #17...Why would you write "Other five-techniques not named J.J. Watt are options as well." I've seen a lot of mocks that have Watt going to the Pats at exactly this spot. Thanks, Eliot


    --> J.J. Watt's agent is Tom Condon. The Patriots have a policy not to deal with any of Condon's clients because of an ugly incident that occurred with Ben Watson several years ago. New England has not drafted a Condon player since.

    Hey Walt, I have the feeling that there will be more trading in the first 2 rounds than ever before since QB's will be at a premium and better teams may be willing to trade back because of the depth at other positions. Do you see many of the early second round teams trading into the back of the 1st round such as the 49ers or Texans trading up for Ponder or Dalton?

    Hey Walt- I always love your stuff and trying to mock a 7 round draft is like herding cats. As a packer fan my only issue is when I see huge reaches like noel devine in the 4th round. I feel the pack organization is 1 of the few that usually doesnt reach for need but takes players that unexpectedly fall such as Bulaga last year or Finley a few years back. They may take a rb like Vereen, Murray, Hunter, Green, in the 4th but I doubt Devine. Keep up the great work because soon we'll all be wrong.

    Hey Jay, a typo would easily explain a missing letter; that's not necessarily a grammar issue.

    Also, SomeFrenchGuy, I'll draw up a mock for last year. I'll let you suck my dick.

    Walt, you make fun of people who make grammar mistakes but you made one yourself in this article. You stated that Stephen Paea is "the prototype of what Wade Phillips look for." Unless somebody cloned him and there are now multiple Wade Phillips, it should say "what Wade Phillips looks for."

    I would like to say to anyone who wants to post some hate comment to try to write something clever. Walt's mocks always make sense, some comments don't...

    If someone find a mock draft which will be 100% right, i will s*ck his c*ck. (PS for stupid haters : that was ironic dumb b*stard, like many of Walt's comments)

    Thank you.

    PS' : I apologize for some hypotetical writing mistakes because of my name.

    Walt, do you think it is possible for the Broncos to trade Tim Tebow to the Panthers for Jimmy Clausen and the Panthers 2012 second round pick?

    Walter refused to answer them. My real name was posted 3 times. I didn't feel like putting it again, so I condensed my 3 posts into one long one.

    For which I still have gotten no response.

    Hilarious that you combat Mallett's wonderlic score which clearly proves you wrong about his intelligence with "well Chris Mortensen was wrong about Gabbert's score so he's probably wrong about this too. I heard he got a 9".

    Seems like a 9 would have been stated already by a media dog who wants to bring him down more, or it seems like you of all people would have loved to break that news.

    You refuse to admit you're wrong

    Okay man, you need to get your facts straight about Ryan Mallet. He's from texarkana, arkansas. if you know people from there they all take like rednecks with a ghetto accent. its just how he talks who cares? chris johnson talks like a dummy (read his tweets) and no one ever questioned his ability? and also everyone smokes weed now. EVERYONE.
