2011 NFL Draft E-mails - Trade and Prospect Speculation



  • From Marcus P:

    With recent talks of the Miami Dolphins wanting to potentially trade down, what are the chances that the Bears work a deal with the Dolphins? What additional draft picks would it take to move from the 29 spot, up to the 15th?

    I personally, don't think that there is much more available for the Bears at the 15th spot in their positions of need. I feel like the OT you get in the middle of round one isn't THAT much better than the one you get at the end of the round. I feel the same way about DTs. With Dareus and Fairley gone, Wilkerson, Taylor, and Liegut are all similar to me in value for the Bears.

    Do you think the Bears would consider packaging the 29 pick and Greg Olsen to the Dolphins to move up to 15 spot?


    --> The problem is that all the first-round tackles might be gone at 29. I like the move. The Bears need to do everything in their power to secure a solid lineman so Jay Cutler doesn't get killed next year.



  • From Hahaha@woody:

    NO way do the eagles get the #7 pick for Kolb. maybe a 2nd rounder. why give up a high draft pick for an unproven QB who will be a free agent next year?


    --> NO way do the Eagles only get a second-rounder for Kevin Kolb. There's a good chance they'll get a top-10 selection for him. Kolb is a young potential franchise quarterback, and the demand is higher than ever for those considering how lacking this class is. The Cardinals may not have a choice but to surrender the fifth pick to the Eagles. It's just how the NFL works, like it or not.





  • From Skol86:

    I really don't see the Vikings passing on Jake Locker in the first round. He will not make it to their second pick unless they trade way up. Bowers would be a nice addition, but we have Allen on one end and Robinson on the other (Assuming Ray Edwards isn't coming back)


    --> I do think the Vikings will trade up for a quarterback. But they won't think about taking Jake Locker at No. 12. Only one head coach showed up to his Pro Day. The same amount of head coaches came to Hawaii's Pro Day, as a reference. That's pretty crazy if you think about it.



  • From Broseph:

    The ravens like casey matthews enough to take him in round three.


    --> The Ravens had a private workout with Casey Matthews on March 30, but he has yet to go to the team facility. You could be right though; that's definitely a possibility.





  • From Sam:

    NAtional football post has derek newton as A nice, long, lean kid who has some good range. But, lacks great strength potential through his hips and doesn't seem much more than a ***late round/FA type developmental guy*** yet you have him to raiders in the 4th?


    --> But... Derek Newton... is a... great... playa... how dare you... say that... a great playa... like Derek Newton... can be a late round... or free agent... gargoyles... cyclopses... seize this man...



  • From Megadeth:

    there is a 0% chance Patrick Peterson slips past the Browns after Haden the browns are absolutely terrible at corner. Thank god when the Browns draft Patrick Peterson so I don't have to watch Eric Wright get burned on EVERY single play


    --> I'm wavering on Patrick Peterson to Cleveland. I think he's an option at No. 6, but paying big money to two corners might be a tough pill to swallow for the Browns. If there's a rookie wage scale, I think there's a greater chance the pick will be Peterson with monetary reasons no longer being a concern.

    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.
