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.

    When Mallett speaks I want to slap him, he sounds like an incredibly arrogant wigger. I do think he'll be a good qb for somebody though, especially if he gets picked between the 2nd and 3rd round as that should put him in his place and humble him a bit. Also, whenever Sanchez opens his mouth I want to slap him too, I bet Claussen wishes he had B Edwards and Holmes to throw to.

    I laughed / felt sad simultaenously at the April Fools' mock when Qalt gave us a Tight End. Because it's true, and it's almost a joke now.

    Haters gon' hate heh

    Who are these pole smokers(not that there's anything wrong with that). The April fools mock was funny as sh!t. There is no proof to show that Mallet isn't dumb as sh!t. And I have no clue who Chris Hope is but if Walter says he sucks then he must be sh!t

    Haha wonderlic scores. Mallet got a 26, which means he'll be incredibly better than Marino, Bradshaw, or Jim Kelly who all had 15s. BETTER PICK MALLET FAST!

    The haters on here are one more sign of the world going to hell in a hand basket. ...And the sad thing is that they can most likely breed.

    Walt provides a great FREE (yes free) service here...Loved the April Fools' draft. Had many lolz.

    Hey TT one name for you. PACMAN JONES, he's the DB that Tennessee drafted 6th overall in 2005. He also spent the equivalent of three years (Slight Exaggeration) either suspended or in jail. He is also the reason why a Las Vegas bouncer can't walk. You want to compare Pacman to Talib. Really if thats what you want knock yourself?

    I actually liked the april fools mock, but thats probably because A) Im not a homer, and B) I can take a joke.

    But kudos to them for loving their team that much.

    Wow. It never ceases to amaze me how many looneys are out there that would take something like the April Fools Mock so bloody serious. It was all for fun. Holy crap guys with all the serious analysts out there arguing strenuously over each mocked pick it's nice to throw a little humor in there every now & again. I look forward to jerks of the week and I'm proud to say I've been following the site long enough to have been here since the first jerk of the week.

    Therefore you angry people who hate on Walter for his site and his humor, you're my jerks of the week.

    WOW, we have a whole bunch of hypocritical haters here. "no one thinks your cute" your calling Walt a coward yet you don't have the balls to post your real name, WHY? because your a spineless creeper who likes to hide behind screen names and computer screens, and its trolls like you who people hate not "second-rate" bloggers like Walt.
