The order of these teams cracks me up. Say Chuck, have you seen Green Bay play this year? On the flip side, have you seen Denver or Minnesota play? Try changing up your draft order to how the teams are currently playing, it will change your drafts more from week to week, instead of looking the same.
if the Saints would pass on home town once in a lifetime type of player in Leonard Fournette I would DIE!! Mark Ingram hasn't shown to be all that great. We will likely have a new young QB in a few years and a BEAST back would do him wonders. Hell he may help Brees last a little longer in that he won't have to pass 100 times a game. Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, DeVante Harris, Ken Crawley, Damian Swann, and Kyle Wilson will be plenty enough depth at corner. The 2 UDFA corners have played good considering they are undrafted. I think PJ was gonna have a good year before the devastating concussion. We are missing Sheldon Rankins right now and our top 3 corners. This D isn't as bad as most think, but the devastating injuries to all our corners have killed us, which would happen to every team out there. Plus I'm scared of Bama corners BIG TIME!! They seem to bust or take forever to produce!!
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.
Below, you can find various tidbits of NFL Draft rumors and information offered by Mike Mayock, Michael Lombardi and the rest of the Path to the Draft crew on the NFL Network. I posted these in my forum, but I thought it would be better to keep all the draft rumors together in this section. I'll be tweeting these during Path to the Draft at @walterfootball.
Charley Casserly's 2011 NFL Mock Draft 11-20: 11. Prince Amukamara. 12. Corey Liuget. 13. Nate Solder. 14. Aldon Smith. 15. Mark Ingram. 16. Ryan Kerrigan. 17. J.J. Watt. 18. Cameron Jordan. 19. Mike Pouncey. 20. Anthony Castonzo.
Charley Casserly: I held Da'Quan Bowers out because I'm concerned about the medical.
Charley Casserly: I would not take Ryan Mallett or Jake Locker at No. 12. I would make the owner understand that's not the solution.
Charley Casserly: I like Liuget. He's got strength. He can anchor. He's sound. Pat Williams is old and a free agent. Kevin Williams is facing a 4-game suspension. There's no question there's a need at that position.
Charley Casserly: The difference between J.J. Watt and Cameron Jordan - Tyron Smith did a good job blocking Cam Jordan, though J.J. Watt didn't play Tyron Smith.
Steve Wyche: I think the Panthers are close to knowing whom they're going to take - Cam Newton. He can come in and put a face on the franchise.
Steve Wyche: Blaine Gabbert is good, but the Panthers aren't blown away by him. They see a higher ceiling in Cam Newton. They think his upside is pretty special.
Steve Wyche: Steve Smith's future in Carolina is unclear, but he's probably coming back.
Steve Wyche: The Panthers are planning to move on with Jonathan Stewart and Mike Goodson. DeAngelo Williams will be playing elsewhere.
Charley Casserly: I wouldn't take Cam Newton there. This isn't close between Gabbert and Newton. Gabbert's a good athlete. He can make all the throws. He's a better bet off the field. He made decisions in that spread offense.
Charley Casserly: Blaine Gabbert is a better Joe Flacco. Protect him with the running game, and he'll be a great fit in Carolina.
Bucky Brooks: The Panthers are looking for sizzle. Cam Newton gives them an "it" factor. He's built to play in the offense they're constructing around him.
Charles Davis: The Panthers might look at Da'Quan Bowers and Von Miller (no they won't) though I still have Cam Newton No. 1.
Charley Casserly: If the Panthers can get a quarterback, they can compete right away.
Bucky Brooks: The Panthers can't afford to play it safe because they'll be here again. They'll gamble on upside with Cam Newton.
Charnac the Magnificent predicts Cam Newton's career will mirror Vince Young's.
Charnac the Magnificent predicts Ryan Mallett's career will mirror Ryan Leaf and Jeff George's.
Charnac the Magnificent predicts Jake Locker's career will mirror Kyle Boller's.
Akeem Ayers: I have first-round ability. If you look at the film, you'll see that I have first-round talent.
Bucky Brooks: Christian Ponder is pro-ready. He's smart, tough and accurate. He reminds me of Chad Pennington.
Charley Casserly: Andy Dalton is a third-round talent. He doesn't have a big arm. He's a little off to me in accuracy. Ponder has the edge.
Charley Casserly: I would take Christian Ponder over Jake Locker. Better accuracy, better decision-making.
Bucky Brooks: Brooks Reed is getting a lot of buzz - Green Bay, Buffalo, New England, Baltimore.
Charley Casserly: The Titans could have two premier receivers at No. 8. If one of them is there, they'd be happy to have either one.
