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.

    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.
