    Worst mock I’ve ever seen, having taken Demmaryius Thomas (the wannabe me) last year with a 1st Round Pick why would Denver take AJ Green? Cincy, with secondary being the least of their worries (Leon Hall+Jonathan Joseph) why would they bother taking Patrick Peterson? Flip the script there, and if we take an O-Lineman from USC I’ll **** a brick, give us Von Miller please. We just lost Julian Peterson, we need to improve on defense, definitely. Jeff had a great year, stop pointing to Matt getting hurt, we should’ve been running the ball in that situation anyway and Julius Peppers 1 vs 1 is a tough matchup for anybody. Miami doesn’t want a cornerback. Tampa doesn’t want a RB they’re quite content with Blunt (Blount, sorry greens on the mind). Colts taking Adrian Claiborne? Seriously? A 3-4 end, maybe a 4-3 DT, with Robert Mathis and Freeney on the ends? Dumb. Cam Newton will not go in the Top 5 for the record, if he does he’ll be a bust regardless of how well he plays because the best potential he can live up to won’t warrant where he was taken, highly inaccurate and it’s easy to throw the ball with 8 in the box, good thing ‘Zona has such a polished rushing attack to warrant 8 in the box.

      Let’s keep in mind Louis I know no more about what will actually happen than you do. This is just a guess based on personal observations and other “experts” best guesses. Every team has multiple needs and this is the first mock I put up this off-season. I’m most certain this will change 20 times before April. Thanks for taking the time to comment! Take care. Scott

    hahaha this is easily the worst mock draft i have ever seen. I hope Arizona takes newton at 5 so there team will continue to be at the bottom of the worst division in the NFL. On that note why would the Rams draft an OT? They have 2 good OTs who will only get better. Green to Denver makes absolutely no sense

    I’m a Rams fan, so I always look at the Rams first… as soon as I saw them with an OT I didn’t even bother reading the rest…

    • Scott Allen

      Well, thanks for reading as far as you did. Good luck in 2011! Take care, Scott

  • Scott Allen

    Well all you fine experts, thanks for chiming in!

    I’m a Ram’s fan as well, and they have no need at tackle! If they do take a lineman, it’ll be Pouncey because there o line need is at guard, not at tackle. Hope they Cardinals suck again next year! take care, Zach.
