April 2011

Blaine Gabbert from Missouri looks to be a top 5 pick.

If you consider yourself a sports fan, then you definitely know that the 2011 NFL draft is coming up on Thursday, April 28 on primetime. Many teams have turned their franchises around by making wise selections (i.e. Peyton Manning), many have sent their team to an abyss with poor selections, while simultaneously breaking their bank accounts (i.e. Jamarcus Russell).  The Carolina Panthers will have the heralded first pick this year, and unlike past years the pick could go many different ways.

Here is how I see the first 16 picks playing out. (Second half of the first round coming next week)

  1. Carolina Panthers- Cameron Newton, QB, Auburn.
  2. Denver Broncos- Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama.
  3. Buffalo Bills- Von Miller, OLB/DE, Texas A&M.
  4. Cincinnati Bengals- Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri.
  5. Arizona Cardinals- Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU.
  6. Cleveland Browns- A.J. Green, WR, Georgia.
  7. San Francisco 49ers- Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
  8. Tennessee Titans- Robert Quinn, DE/DT, North Carolina
  9. Dallas Cowboys- Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
  10. Washington Redskins- Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri
  11. Houston Texans- J.J. Watt, JDE, Wisconsin
  12. Minnesota Vikings- Tyron Smith, OT, USC
  13. Detroit Lions- Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College 
  14. St. Louis Rams- Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
  15. Miami Dolphins- Mike Pouncey, OG/C, Florida
  16. Jacksonville Jaguars- Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue

    What a down year in QB. There just isn’t a lot to offer on the table

    If the rams want to get julio jones, they will have to trade up with either Dallas or Tennesee to get him. He probably won’t get past Cleveland but if he does, look for the rams to swoop in and grab him.

    P.S Todd McShay sucks

    you do have Aldon pretty high. I think the highest i’ve seen him is about 18.

    Being a Rams fan, I suppose I was a little bias when I let julio drop to the rams. However, I can see aldon going that high. Walter football has him at 11 (yes, i know its just walter football) and BleacherReport has him at 13. So it’s not too far off. A little high though? probably.
