  1. Jason says:

    Damn Jared you had it cold.

    Green Bay selects Mark Ingram RB Alabama

    • NEPD says:

      With that, the Patriots are on the clock. Here are the results from Round 1: http://goo.gl/jOsX4

    • Jason says:

      Injuries to Ryan Grant (final year of contract as well). While Starks had a grand coming out in the playoffs last year, and the value that Ingram has this late in the first round. Ted Thompson has a track record of taking the best player available.

      • Jared says:

        great pick…that offense down in cheese country would be frightening.

        • Jason says:

          That and they really need a different look if Rodgers takes a shot to the head again. That game at Detroit was atrocious.

    • CC says:

      With their guy getting injured last year and winning the bowl anyway, It’s a solid pick for GB.

  2. Jared says:

    Mark Ingram to the SuperBowl champs anyone?…

    • When was the last time we got to the 32nd pick and NO running backs have been taken.
      This is a unique draft

      • Jared says:

        the last time a RB went as low as Ingram mite go, was 1984!!! some dude named Greg Bell was picked by the Bills 26th. Every draft has about 3 or 4 RB’s at least go in the first.

  3. Wow lots of surprises in this mock. As tempting as it would be to draft the free falling Mark Ingram, I just can not see the Steelers pulling the trigger on him as running back is not a priority, especially early in the draft no matter how good of value. He offers extreme value late in the first and I would think with both he and Locker still on the board, the Steelers red phone would be burning up. The Steelers could easily trade out of this spot to get Aaron Williams or another target early in the second.

    All of that said, the Steelers need help on the defensive line behind Brett Keisel at right defensive end as his backup Nick Eason is a free agent and likely will not be back. Outside of Ziggy Hood, the d-line has some age on it as well. Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward is a perfect 5 technique defensive end and the Buckeyes already run a 3-4 similar to what the Steelers run.

    For the sake of this draft the Steelers pick Cameron Heyward, but I just do not see him dropping to the Steelers in round 1. If Heyward were to be off the board and the Steelers do not trade out, I see Williams being the pick. Also in consideration would be Baylor nose tackle Phil Taylor.

    Thanks for having me & be well.


  4. Jared says:

    hate the Steelers….hurry up will ya

  5. Jared says:

    due to a couple of questionable wide reciever picks.

  6. With the 30th pick in the NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns select Muhammad Wilkerson, DT Temple.

  7. Franklin says:

    The Bears pick is Leonard Hankerson – WR – Miami U

    • Patriots Draft Guru says:


    • Jared says:

      Wilkerson or marvin Austin would have been better picks here I think.

      • CC says:

        If this is the way it went……Hopefully he’ll make me feel better & take Phil Taylor with the #33.
        That Mammoth coupled with Big Vfork together will be eating up ppl left and right on the field! Open’s up our line backing core for clear and unidaultarted “production”, never mind helping make the backfield(CB & Safeties) shine at the same time as well.

  8. Ryan Buske says:

    Patriots select Nate Solder

    • Patriots Draft Guru says:

      Would rather have Watkins here age and all. Best tackle left I guess.

      • Ryan Buske says:

        Yeah that was my thought, I figured I’d be reaching for him there. But it was him or Ingram. In real life i see Ingram going.

        • Jared says:

          should of taken Ingram then…not a big fan of the Nate Solder pick at 28. Mixed reviews in his evaluation from scouts. And i still feel Belichick can grab guys like Boling or Ijalana in the 2nd round somewhere.

    • Mike Loyko says:

      yuck out of all the tackles in the discussion for 1st-2nd round.. Solder is the one i want least. Just not sold on his ability. Not very physical, gets beat too much for someone with his size/speed

    • CC says:


  9. Ryan Buske says:

    Last chance for anyone interested in this pick.

  10. NEPD says:

    Per @TommyDubbs46, the Falcons select Torrey Smith (WR, Maryland)

  11. JMC says:

    The Ravens select Brandon Harris – DB from THE U

  12. Jared says:

    next 3 picks are tough…

  13. Rob says:

    Seahawks select Ryan Mallett (QB, Arkansas) at #25.

  14. FleurDeLis says:

    The Saints select Martez Wilson (LB, Illinois)

  15. Fran says:

    With Carimi and Smith off the board, the Philadelphia Eagles select offensive lineman Mike Pouncey at 23rd Overall

  16. Jared says:

    well…we were cruisin

  17. Mike Harman says:

    Bengals have a 2012 2nd and a 2011 3rd rounder (3:2) to get a top-40 pick. Can hit me on twitter @michael_harman or at draftmaven@hotmail.com

    • Jared says:

      for a top 40 pick your talking a first next year….or two 2nds at least

      • Mike Harman says:

        If the 2011 30th pick, a 2012 1st and 4th are worth the 6th pick (Jets ripped off the Browns again from a TVC standpoint by about a mid-2nd round pick worth of value), then the 66th pick and a 2012 2nd rounder isn’t a crazy way to move into the top-40. The TVC of a 2012 2nd and the 66th pick is about the value of the 37th pick give or take. I don’t love the TVC, but from all indications a top-40 pick isn’t a rip off

  18. NEPD says:

    The Broncos traded the 36th and 67th picks to Colts for the 22nd pick.

    The Broncos select Adrian Clayborn (DE, Iowa)

  19. NEPD says:

    The Chiefs have selected Derek Sherrod (OL, Miss State) per @Wthe1stPick

  20. Fran says:

    Is there anywhere I can see all the picks without having to scroll through all of these comments?

  21. Dan says:

    Bills are very interested in trading up into the earlier 20’s anyone willing?

  22. Rossco FTC says:

    The Buc’s select Jimmy Smith CB Colorado

  23. Jose Reyes says:

    Giants select Aldon Smith (DE, Missouri)

  24. NEPD says:

    The Giants (Jose Reyes) are on the Clock.

  25. NEPD says:

    The Chargers (Zach Roberts) are on the clock. Have emails sent to the next three guys so it should get going hopefully.

  26. Mike Loyko says:

    Everyone has been focusing on picks 28 and 33 as potential trade spots for the patriots. However I think 17 could be the spot the BB trades back from. If two or three players are on the board we could see BB trade back to 22-25 range and pick up an extra 3rd or 4th rounder. From everything being reported and the way things are starting to shape up, I think the run on QB is going to start sooner than everyone has thought. There for we will see some teams targeting pick 17 to move up and grab their QB.

    • Patsfan says:

      I agree that trading back to 22/23 would’ve netted a 3rd round pick and likely still ending up with Watt, Jordan, or Wilkerson but it would’ve been a risk. If philly/ indy moves up and takes OT, then you gotta get through San Diego (Aldon/ 3-4 DE), Giants (Pouncey/ Ingram), Tampa Bay (D-line?), KC (pioli wants DL?), Indy (OT). You wouldve had Wilkerson at worst, but I do feel Watt/ Jordan are better than Wilkerson right now, so maybe a mid 3rd not worth it. Either way, happy with the draft choice.

      • Mike Loyko says:

        I’m not necessarily talking bout this draft, I just think it is something that might happen next thursday. I agree with the pick of Watt he is the best fit, but who knows how BB views all these front 7 players, Im sure his opinion of them is much different than the publics.

        • Jared says:

          I hope the lowest the Pats pick next week is 17th. I know they will move those picks around somewhere, but if Watt, Jordan, A.Smith,or Costanzo are there…i hope they make a pick. Picks 28 & 33 are perfect fo teams that didnt get a QB in the top half of the first round.

  27. Ryan Buske says:

    Patriots select – Jj Watt

    • NEPD says:

      Didn’t even have to trade up and you have Jordan, Watt, and Smith available. Pretty nice.

      • Ryan Buske says:

        Yeah, it was a tough decision in all honesty and I’m sure I’ll get my fair share of negativity for it. I think he is solid against the run, and can move the OL if need be.

        In all reality on Draft day, it could be somthing similiar.

        • Patsfan says:

          I think the players that Pats should be happy to get at 17 is 1) Watt, 2) Jordan, 3) Costanzo. So to get Watt here is really nice. Watt will be nice 3-4 DE with ability to play in sub packages. He can rush the passer pretty well too. Would happy with any of those three players. I don’t really think there is great OLB value at 17.

    • Rossco FTC says:

      Thank you!!!!
      Ryn thanx for takeing (Timely Fasion) seriosly.

    • Jared says:

      Tough choice with Smith-Watt & Jordan there, and Wilkerson for that matter. I like the Watt pick, i think Cam Jordan could be Willie McGinest at OLB, but Watt is the guy for DE.

    • Patriots Draft Guru says:

      Nice job being patient Ryan – Belichickian.

  28. Rob says:

    The time zone I’m currently in has the time at 11:45pm. Any chance Seattle will be on the clock before half past midnight?

  29. Abercrombie says:

    Sorry – Jacksonville selects Ryan Kerrigan.

  30. Jared says:

    no abercrombie is slackin…only problem the Jags would have…is choosing Kerrigan….or A.Smith….i’d take Smith….I’d want them to take Kerrigan. So the Pats could get him, eben though they wouldn’t even if he fell to them.

    • Patsfan says:

      I think Jordan or Watt is the pick at 17 if you dont move back. Stud 3-4 DE over a projection pick like Smith. So many questions about whether he can perform make it hard to take him over Jordan esp who played in 3-4 and Watt who looks like Seymour.

  31. CC says:

    Jax Jag’s biggest need is a DE, shouldn’t be that herd to desipher a pick I would think?

  32. Jared says:

    Jaguars are taking Aldon Smith…just say it-haha…we know you probably dont want to because you pick after them…but abercrombie is killing us.

  33. Rossco FTC says:

    C’mon Jags Today guy You think ?!!!!

  34. CC says:

    With the 15th overall pick of the NFL draft, the Miami Dolphins select…..
    *Gabe Carimi out of Wisconsin for their offensive line.

    • Jared says:

      hahaaa….ballsy pick….i like it…its a reach for sure….but i still like that pick-Carimi is a bad MF

      • CC says:

        Thank you –
        One Bad MF in Jake Long on the one side, deserves another on the other.
        Looking at who Carimi’s gone against in College…………
        The G. Carimi & J. Long tandum at O-tackle should really begin to start the Miami O-line wall of protection in motion!
        The run game has slacked severely with improper protection & their QB’s certainley need to stop being “shook-up” so much!

    • Patsfan says:

      First real surprise…I’m guessing there were no takers for a trade down?

      • Ryan Buske says:

        Im sitll open for trades on the 28th pick, if anyone is interested. One stipulation I would like picks in this years draft, as I have no idea unlike Bill B who is in next years draft…sorry if i let you down.

        • Jared says:

          Jerry Jones is on line 1 calling for the 17th pick.

        • Ryan Buske says:

          Your driving a pretty hard bargain…

        • Jared says:

          41 & 105 this year….and a pick in the 40’s next year….

          pick 41-490 pts, and pick 105 this year-84 points

          pick say….50 next year-400 pts, and pick 114 in the 4th rnd next year-66 points.

          That would be a total of 574 in this yrs draft.
          And a total of at least 475 points next year.

          That would be a total of about 1050 points….for the 17th overall pick- 950 points….its on the table.

        • Jared says:

          2-2nd rounders.
          & 2-4th rounders…41 & 105, and 50 & 114 in 2012…for #17.

        • Patsfan says:

          If this is how the draft went down, I would be happy as a pats fan. There are a lot of good defensive front 7 options left. Would actually be happy if they traded down about 4/5 spots and picked up a 3rd from the teams with OT needs (i.e. Indy/ Philly).

        • Ryan Buske says:

          The problem is I can’t slide, like they can in real life. Which is what I want, the guy who is on top of my board should be there… but if I take a trade like this I know he wont be there at 28, common sense. However, my 2nd/3rd options at the position will be there at 28 and 33, and even later in the 2nd possibly, but I dont want picks next year in this scenario because im not familiar enough with next years draft. Sorry if you all are upset.

        • Patsfan says:

          I agree with you not trading with Boys. i dont think that 17 should be given up without a 2012 first involved and if you dont feel comfortable trading for future picks that is cool too. I was saying (Philly, Indy, maybe KC) all want OL and there has been a little run in the OT. Really only Sherrod and Solder left as for 1st round talent. If they are desperate I would squeeze a 3 this year out of em and you would still land one of (Watt, Jordan, Wilkerson, Aldon, Pouncey)

        • Jared says:

          Dont blame you for not doin it in this mock…But I think a deal like this could happen on April 28th. For the 17th OR the 28th pick. 41 is a good spot to get an OLB/DE project or a good spot for the Pats to take a tackle or a guard.
          I’ll be calling on that no.28 pick.

        • Ryan Buske says:

          Do not forget about Nate Solder, who has been praised well lately.

        • Patsfan says:

          I agree with Jared on 41. Top 10-15 picks in 2nd round is a good place to be for OLB/ G/ RB/ and CB. My draft strategy would be to maximize the number of picks i could get in that area but not with 17.

        • Jared says:

          Patsfan…agreed. But in real life, I think the 41st and the 73rd pick this year. And a 2nd rounder next year, would be enough for pick 17. Only if Bill isnt in love with a guy there, which it seems he usually isnt.

        • Patsfan says:

          I didn’t realize you upped it to a 3rd this year. Thought it was a 2nd and 4th in each year. Sounds a little better now.

        • Jared says:

          haha…i didnt. I want to pick again in this mock-lol. But i could see that deal beeing done in the real draft.

        • Patsfan says:

          Maybe I don’t respect the value of a 4th round pick enough but I would rather the 3rd this year. I would be too worried that the Boys would be too good and that 4th and 2nd next year would be at the end of the rounds.

        • Jared says:

          definately….and its the 9th pick in the 3rd this year. Pats have the Moss pick 74th, so they would almost most definately trade one of those picks. Pats got almost the same pick lasy year from Dallas. Ended up trading it to Carolina…which ended up beeing 33rd this year 🙂

        • Jared says:

          All for moving down like 3 spots to take McCourty anyways, that why Bill is the man. O…and we traded down a couple slots before that, to Denver, for a 4th rounder. that 4th rounder….turned into Aaron Hernandez. now THATS a 4th round pick, and THATS BB at his best.

  35. Jeff says:

    With the 14th pick of 2011 draft the St Louis Rams select Corey Liuget, DT Illinois.

  36. Jared says:

    Jerry Jones is looking to trade up into the top 20…..

    You will get the Cowboys 1st round pick in 2012….

    the ninth pick in this years 3rd round-71…

    and a 3rd round pick next season

    • Ryan Buske says:

      I’d like to have picks this year…
      No time like the present

      • Jared says:

        okay Jerry says…I’ll give you….

        DAL-2nd rounder this year-41
        3rd rounder-73
        4th rounder-105

        for the 17th pick overall

        • Jared says:

          BB is goin g to want picks for next year….

          you can have the Cowboys second round pick next season…..AND their 2nd and 4rd rounders this year…for the 17th pick

          the deal would go….

          Patriots no.17
          for Cowboys 41 and 105 this year
          and 2nd rounder in 2012

        • Jared says:

          41 is a perfect spot for the Pats in the 2nd round…..we traded last year and it worked out well for both of us…..
          haha….im Jerry on the phone-talk to me

  37. NEPD says:

    The Rams are now on the clock.

  38. Mike Harman says:

    Who did Minnesota take? or did Detroit skip them?

  39. Jared says:

    thats high for ya boy from BC

  40. Bill says:

    Detroit Lions draft…

    Anthony Castonzo OT Boston College

    The Pat’s are making a big mistake not trading UP to draft top talent, in this draft year, with their multiple picks and limited needs.

  41. Jared says:

    Texans would be pumped if Prince fell to them.

  42. Zane penton says:

    WIth the 11th pick, the Texans select Prince Amukamara, CB-Nebraska

  43. Jared says:

    Matt Carney, the Colts would be very willing to talk trade! Drop me a line on Twitter. @JaredCounterman

  44. Coach Bill says:

    The Redskins select Julio Jones (WR, Alabama)

  45. Matt Carney says:

    Broncos looking to trade up into the 20’s.

  46. Jared says:

    2 perfect fits left for the Cowbpys at 9. Picking at 41 and 74, i feel i can get a solid corner there. Cant pass up on the hands down best tackle prospect in the draft.

    …and with 9th pick of the 2011 NFL draft. The Dallas Cowboys select….

    9. OT-USC- Tyron Smith

  47. Mike Harman says:

    Bengals might be looking to get back up into the first round. Any team in the top-15ish willing to move back to the early 2nd and willing to take future value can hit me back at http://twitter.com/#!/Michael_Harman

  48. Mike Loyko says:

    if the draft plays out like this the titans are taking fairley…someone make the pick for them please

  49. NEPD says:

    Per NewNFLDraft – the Titans select Nick Fairley (DT, Auburn).

  50. Mike Loyko says:

    at this rate the real nfl draft will be over by the time we get thru round 1

  51. Jared says:

    NewNFLdraft…..your killing us

  52. Mike Loyko says:

    With the 7th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft the San Francisco 49ers select Robert Quinn, OLB, North Carolina

    • Nice pick on that one.
      Put a pass rusher opposite Justin Smith, that’s deadly

      • Mike Loyko says:

        If the draft did unfold this way with Gabbert, Peterson, Miller, Green off the board it would have to be considered a worst case scenario for the 49ers. Quinn is the best player/fit otherwise I would think they would try to trade back.

  53. NEPD says:

    The Jets have dealt their 2011 1st, 2012 1st, and 2012 4th for the #6 pick in the draft.

    Th Jets select AJ Green (WR, Georgia).

    The 49ers are OTC.

  54. NEPD says:

    The Cardinals have selected Von Miller (LB, Texas A&M).

  55. NEPD says:

    Jets wanting to move into Top 10.

  56. Ryan Buske says:

    Patriots looking to move down to 10 or so, all offers are welcome. ryanbuske@gmail.com

  57. NEPD says:

    Per email from Michael Harman, the Bengals select Blaine Gabbert (QB, Mizzou)

    • Mike Harman says:

      Oh man, almost got back in time. Anyways, here is a comment for the Gabbert Pick:

      It is becoming a reality that Carson Palmer will not be back with the Bengals next year. Even with him back, Carson was never the top-5 QB that he was supposed to be, and like many other QB’s before him, the Mike Brown ‘curse’ struck. With a quick look at the depth chart you will see that Jordan Palmer, Carson’s little brother is the 2nd string. If you thought Carson was average, then Jordan is Todd Collins on a scale of QB relevance.

      The Bengals admit that they are in rebuild mode (ok, maybe this pick won’t happen) and select Blaine “Hawks > Tigers” Gabbert

  58. NEPD says:

    On behalf of Dan, the Bills select M. Dareus (DL, Alabama)

  59. Fran says:

    Fran Duffy @fduffyTUFB – I have the Eagles and pick 23

  60. Rob says:

    Seahawks interested in moving into the early teens. Contact via @robstaton

    • CC says:

      Make an offer for the Miami #15 over all……….
      My draft pick commitee can be reached at:


  61. Matt Carney says:

    With the second pick in the NFL Draft the Broncos select Patrick Peterson, Cornerback- LSU

  62. Zachary Roberts says:

    If anyone would like to discuss trades for any of my picks (CHARGERS) my e-mail is zrob0890@yahoo.com – I am actively seeking any deals I feel can help my team win.

  63. Dan says:

    NEPD can you make the broncos pick? Matt is slowing the process down. Or at least we should skip the pick, like they do in the real draft.

  64. Jared says:

    haha…dont blame you for the pick, even though i would take Gabbert, but Cam Newton has Vince Young written alll over him.

    • Coach Bill says:

      Use the reply button, or you’re going to get in trouble Jared. I kid NEPD, I kid!

  65. Patriots Draft Guru says:

    With the 1st pick, after shockingly no offers coming forth (haha), the Panthers select:

    Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
